AlcaLu's Video Nasty
Only yesterday we noted that French carrier Neuf Cegetel Group (Euronext: NEUF) had created a new IPTV channel based on content from user-generated video site Dailymotion. (See Neuf Digs User Video.)
And guess what you can find on Dailymotion? Video footage of union activists disrupting last June's Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU) shareholders' meeting in Paris. You can view the video by clicking on this link.
The protesters make such a noise that AlcaLu chairman Serge 'The Merge' Tchuruk is forced to interrupt his speech, and eventually, in an effort to shut them up, a microphone is handed to the protesters so they can read out their complaints about the merger fallout to the entire gathering.
The only thing that's missing is a pile of burning tyres.
