AT LAST!!! It’s the first time since I saw all those Arab/Islamist flags at the Place de la Bastille Paris, in celebration of the socialist election win in May 2012, that I can hope again: perhaps France is not lost after all. These are the first pictures (the big medias will ignore them at best but more likely distort the messages of course) of the anti-islamist, anti-sharia, pro-freedom for France march against the Islamist fascism , organized by my friends Pierre Cassen from « Riposte Laique » and Christine Tasin from « Resistance Republicaine« .
The slogans are pretty easy to understand: « no to the Islam fascism », « From Poitiers to Paris: resistance against the Fascism Islamist » .. » …. and Salafists, they are the fasciste…allez-hopp to the dustbin with them! »
The banners read: « honor and dignity for a Free France », « to refuse Sharia is our duty and our right ». They welcomed supporters from Holland and Switzerland, and finally I even saw the association of French Jews represented at this march in the centre of Paris (despite the fact that both, Riposte Laique and Resistance Republicaine defend Israel and the Jews*, they – strangely – still don’t have much support from the Jewish community in France).
They also had lots of obstacles thrown in their way by the terminally dhimmy government authorities (firstly forbidding the march – so as not to « offend » the « muslim community », then a change of venue several times, even a day before the planned march – so it took the organizers (and they are a group whose size stands in direct inverse proportion to their courage) not only lots of work but also courage to persist in the present climate in France.
This video is hot from the press, so it’s very raw/unedited, and there will be better ones coming up, but hope (that thing with feathers) has just soooo sprung up in me again, and I am soooooo proud of these feisty and courageous people, who wage a battle against such a nasty huge Goliath, that I could not wait!
Vive la France!
* I actually once had a French acquaintances (middle class French, and slightly left as most French are these days) tell me that they did not mind Riposte Laique and Resistance Republicaine at all, except for their « love of the Jews ». These French acquaintances are now, of course, FORMER acquaintances.
