Olympic Torch Protest on the Golden Gate Bridge

Photographs: San Francisco Chronicle

So, we've heard that the Olympic Torch made it through Paris in one piece after all?

Alors, il parait que la Flamme Olympique a survécu sa visite à Paris?

The Torch is supposed to be in San Francisco this coming Wednesday, April 9, but today already, a couple of activits managed to climb the cables of the Golden Gate Bridge and put up a couple of "Free Tibet" banners as you can probably see on the photograph above.

La Flamme est supposée passer à San Francisco Mercredi 9 Avril, mais déjà ce matin, un groupe d'activistes a réussi à grimper sur les cables du Golden Gate Bridge comme vous pouvez le voir sur les photos ci-dessus.

Check out the links below for further information.

Je vous ai mis plein de liens ci-dessous mais c'est tout en Anglais car je n'ai pas le temps de chercher les liens correspondants en Français. Allez-y quand même car les photos n'ont pas besoin de légende, et les videos sont relativement facile à comprendre.

Hey Tomate! I hope the torch trip through SF goes well tomorrow. Thanks for the photos and all the links! I especially want to see the KPIX video of what happened in Paris. I'll be at work in SF, but not close enough to see anything. At first look I though you'd climbed the Golden Gate Bridge to take that photo!

Oh, goodness, no, I didn't take these pictures! :)

I'll be a few blocks away from all the action tomorrow, but I plan on laying low.

The photos are stupendous!

Your post about the offer for your old car was mind-boggling. Pass the smog test ? Come on!

I enjoyed your post about Henri Salvador too (listening to one of your videos now) - I love 'chambre avec vue', his last album.
