And the 100th artist to climb Le Mur is...

Le M.U.R. - # 100 - ROA - june 30/2011

Music: dj Black Sifichi - Fela Kuti "Demo Crazy".

Passed by a first time around 3, then on my way back around 4:30
work was still in progress... Shame on me, but I wanted so badly
G@tto's foamy coffe that I left and went back home.


A few steps away,
in the Rue Saint Maur, Ella & Pitr provided a frame
for you
to shoot yourself in front of it...

... so smile and shoot your photo memories of Paris/Oberkampf.

And do not forget to send a copy to the artists!

Second Asian 'Dies Iræ' in Paris' streets

This Sunday, at the initiative of the collective of Asian associations in France,
several thousand
people marched in Paris
, from the place de la République
to the place de la Nation, to protest against
violence and require more security.

, no concrete solution has been found or desired
since last year
when, for the first time, the Chinese community
organized a demonstration to denounce the intolerable
which has lasted for fifteen years, asking authorities
to protect people from any aggressive behaviour and violence.
For some reasons, the protest had turned to ethnic clash...
because of
subsequent aggression on a Chinese woman.

To understand the basis
of this wrath that could jeopardize the art of 'living together' which
long characterized a multicultural neighborhood of Paris like Belleville, I suggest you to
listen to
this France-Culture podcast:
- China from the edge: "Belleville, Chronicle of a Yellow Anger" - an audio documentary
by Alexander
Héraud and Nathalie Salles about how and why all this first started on June 2010
and still hurts one year later.


[Happy listening ... However, if you are familiar with French].
