Must be a summer thing.

We where there a month ago and it was business as normal.

I was there last summer as well and other than pretty visible security presence, nothing remarkable going on. I am by my nature a cautious man, but I did not feel afraid there. France is very used to dealing with civil disorder and sundry bullshit.

Paris is not France.

Paris is tourist France.

Get out of Paris to see the real France.

See both. There is a lot that is worthwhile to see in Paris. Winter is a great time - the tourists stay home
