A closer look at France's 'Up All Night' movement

France's "Up All Night" movement has been likened to the "indignados" movement in Spain and "Occupy Wall Street" in the US. The first gathering at Paris's Place de la Republique was held after a protest against labour law reform. One month later, people of all ages continue to stay up late, discussing the ills of the world. But with debates encompassing a wide range of topics and an unwillingness to name a leader, the movement is struggling to find a voice beyond its own supporters.

A programme prepared by Patrick Lovett, Elise Duffau and Claire Pryde.
