Is Occupy 2.0 Happening in France?

About a month ago there were over 1 million people in the streets of Paris protesting changes in labor laws. On March 31st there was a general strike in which 1/2 million people were involved and marched, despite the pouring rain. But more importantly, people are not going home. The description in this article of general assemblies and participatory decision making sound a lot like the Occupy movement making a comeback!
