Homeless in Lyon, France

The weather forecast in Lyon, France is 9° Celsius/48.2° Fahrenheit with rainstorms. Pretty damn miserable! Meanwhile the Roma community, evicted from their camp by riot cops directed by the Socialist Party of France, are preparing their beds in front of an administrative court. Who knows what that administrative court administrates but the Roma have every right to start kicking the hienies of every judge that shows up. The persecution of Roma is crescendoing throughout Europe--it’s the old blame it on the immigrants & poor people defense for decrepit capitalism. Working people have been systematically weaned from the conviction that “an injury to one is an injury to all.” But if we expect to find out way through the mess we’re in, it must again become a universal & inviolable principle.
