Those of us in France right now: How are you dealing with the strikes?

I would be fine with just a transportation strike. That's easy to deal with. But the other thing that's crippling me personally is the student strikes. I'm a foreign student at University of Paris 8, Saint-Denis, and the students there have been on strike since Monday last week. While I understand the reason for these student strikes (and would possibly be in support of them if I was born French), I'm feeling a bit cheated because I haven't had any classes for a week and a half now and it's in those classes that I was learning the most French. Most likely I'll return home at the end of this semester without any credits as well. So frustrating

So let's share some stories, opinions, and straight out rants if you feel like it. I'd be interested to hear other people's stories.

They would never arrest an american. That would be way too much bad PR. And even if you were, are you giving up on the opportunity of being a hero because you are afraid to lose some school credits? What happen to the spirit of youth?

easy for you to say when you will not be paying consequences. Spirit of youth? Carpe Diem? I would say they're more like irrational thinking.
