Tonight President-Elect Nicolas Sarkozy will return from vacationing to France. His travels have raised some eyebrows because the yacht he has been photographed in belongs to a French businessman and corporate raider by the name of Vincent Bolloré, who is listed as being worth US$1.7 billion and the 451st richest person in the world.
Sporadic violence and protests have continued since this past Sunday night, but these have been greeted by pleas from left-wing leaders to stop. Soccer player Lilian Thuram had this to say.
"Stop! There are many other means of being made hear more effectively. We live in a society full of prejudices, this violence reinforces them whereas they should be fought.
(...) people revolt when it there is injustice...Nicolas Sarkozy was elected democratically."
