The vague-human-rights-concept people*s fear

Yesterday the Mayor of paris unveiled this huge banner on city hall, just in time to in-your-face the Beijing olympic flame. Chinese officials the called the planned ceremony in front of city hall off in in last minute. In your face! In your face!
"Paris defends the human rights everywhere in the world"
Even on Notre Dame, the flag for "Reportes without Borders" was flying high as the flame passed by.
And let*s not forget the Eiffel Tower.
Check out Reporters without Borders!

    I am Cedric, discoverer of things that would go unnoticed in the streets of Paris, historic haven of fashionistas and city of lights ('lights' as in 'enlightenment', not street lights).
    But seriously: I'm an expat from Luxembourg (the country, not the garden), living in the center of Paris (hence 'Paris 2nd arrondissement'), and currenlty studying architectural history...
