Allons, enfants de la patrie, les jours de vacances sont arrives!

According to an AP wire (Paris, Apr.8,2006) French jobs law protests may soon fizzle--courtesy not of police crackdowns or government capitulation, but of Spring Break.
Yes, that's right. Spring break starts this weekend in France, and many students--high schoolers in particular--who have already been out of school and on the streets for days, will be off on les vacances avec Maman et Papa.

"...I think the movement is going to lose steam," remarked a 15-year-old student interviewed in the story. "Most people are going on vacation with their parents." The reporter added that his subject was leaving this weekend "for a family holiday in Italy."

Tant pis pour la revolution, je m'en vais a la plage!
