At the end of September, the head of the French Interior Ministry, Manuel Valls, spoke about the gypsies. According to him, gypsies who are not able to integrate in France should “be sent back abroad.” How many such Gypsies who cannot integrate? According to Monsieur Waltz, they are the majority.
As noted by "BBC", the statement of the Minister was sharply criticized by the European Commission and human rights defenders. Amnesty International provided data: in the first six months of 2013, more than 10 thousands of people were evicted from Gypsy tent cities. Human rights activists believe that the statement by the Waltz will only “strengthen stereotypes and increase hostility” in relation to about 20 to thousands of Roma who arrived in France from Romania, Bulgaria and the former Yugoslavia.
The UN Human Rights Council did not endorse the Waltz either. Of course, the organizations defending the rights of Roma were outraged.
Against the ideas of the Waltz, the French Minister of Economic Rehabilitation Arno Montenburgh also spoke out. According to him, “the theory that some people or groups will never be able to integrate simply does not hold water.” "That was what they said about the Italians, it was about the Spaniards, it was about the Portuguese, and it was about the Arabs," BBC quoted Montenburgh.
Interestingly, Manuel Valls himself was born and raised in Barcelona. He took French citizenship when he was twenty years old.
The head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs was not at all embarrassed by his own position as a former migrant. But to the critics-internationalists, he said in response that he would not apologize: after all, the gypsy lifestyle and French values are incompatible. Waltz rightly said that the Gypsy’s lifestyle “obviously contradicts” French values. The Minister insists:
“Most (Gypsies) should be sent abroad. We should not accept these people. ”
In practice, this should be implemented as follows: local authorities are obliged to demolish Gypsy tent camps.
October 18 classes in twenty Paris schools were completely or partially terminated. About it "BBC" said the Fidl schoolchildren activist. Thousands of schoolchildren staged a protest march against deportations.
This is primarily about 15-year-old Leonard Dibrani - Gypsy schoolgirl. Earlier this month, she was taken from a school bus, to be sent to the Kosovo city of Mitrovica with her family. Before that, the Leonard family lived in the Du department for several years.
The girl’s father, Rishat Dibrani, arrived in France at the time, told the migration agency that his family was from Kosovo. However, he was the only member of the family who was born in Kosovo, from where he left at the beginning of the 1970s. The rest of the children, including Leonard, were born in Italy. Dibrani lied for the sake of seeking refuge in France.
But not only the fate of the Gypsies was the cause of protests of French schoolchildren.
They marched through the streets to protest the expulsion of the 19-year-old Parisian student Khachik Khachatryan. This young man was extradited to Armenia the other day. He was reportedly arrested for petty shoplifting. Then it turned out that he entered France illegally. It is also noted that upon returning to Armenia, Khachatryan was detained for evading military service.
Schoolchildren protesting demanded the resignation of the minister Waltz. The head of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, however, defended Leonarda’s deportation and reiterated his thesis on a tough policy towards Roma immigrants.
The French president next day tried to find a compromise. His decision, by the way, can cause at least a slight bewilderment.
Hollande said on television that the expelled girl may return to complete school, but her family cannot. He writes about it "BBC".
A government check found: the actions of the authorities were legal; the Dibrani family has exhausted the possibilities for challenging the expulsion decision. The inspection commission also learned a lesson from the protests: officials recommended to continue to detain pupils to be deported outside the classroom.
The Dibrani family claimed that they were discriminated against in Kosovo, but they failed to prove it.
The French president said in a televised speech that Leonard would still be able to continue his studies in France, but alone.
"If she makes such a request, taking into account the circumstances and her desire to continue studying in France, she will be provided with a reception."
The girl answered quite predictably:
“I will not leave my family. I am not the only one who should go to school, I still have brothers and sisters. ”
So the girl told France Press in Kosovo.
And here are other details about the past Gypsy family. This family lived in the Italian city of Fano for several years, from where she left after the authorities threatened to take the children under state care. This was reported to FrancePress by Stefano Aguzzi, the mayor of the city. The mayor said the following about the father of the family:
“The children almost did not go to school, although he wrote them there. He forced them to beg. They lived on the street. ”
“We told him that he could not continue to live here and not pay for anything. We set for him a set of rules that he had to follow in order to stay here. ”
As for France, right-wing political forces demanded that the government not be led by the protesters; otherwise, a dangerous precedent would be created. This is the correspondent of "BBC" in Paris, Christian Fraser.
On the right in France should be said especially.
Alexey Bondarev ("Vesti") notes that the indigenous French are increasingly dissatisfied with the policies of the current government. And if Hollande loses confidence, then nationalist ratings, on the contrary, are rising.
According to the results of the cantonal elections in Brignoles in the south of France, the winner was the candidate of the "National Front" Laurent Lopez. Marine Le Pen had a reason to call his party the most important political force of the V Republic:
“This is a turning point. The elections confirmed that all these parties are socialists, the Union for a Popular Movement, green and others are dying out. The people want their defeat. "
Experts remind: voting in Brignoles is the first rehearsal before the elections to the Parliament of the Fifth Republic. The “National Front” is already expected to win the election to the European Parliament in 2014. The rating of nationalists today is five points higher than that of the socialists.
To this we must add that, according to media reports, almost one-fifth of voters are ready to vote for the National Front in the European Parliament. Where does such popularity come from? But the fact is that the ultra-right advocates locks on the borders, speak out against the Islamization of society, endorse traditional family values, Catholicism. I do not like the "National Front" legalization of same-sex marriages, enforced by Monsieur Hollande. And, oddly enough, Marine Le Pen would like her France to leave the European Union. And with this idea - to the European Parliament! Truly, the world is full of paradoxes.
Against the background of the low rating of Hollande and his unpopular decisions, as well as against the background of the notorious economic crisis, the National Front Party is confidently moving towards a political victory.
There is one more thing to add here. In France, a scandal broke out due to the fact that the extreme right was supported by Alain Delon. Approval of Le Pen's course was not expressed in the conversation in the kitchen, but in public.
As reported by 18 October site "AIF-Moscow" With reference to Parisien, the actor said he was refusing the post of chairman of the jury of the Miss France contest. The reason for the voluntary resignation was just the scandal that broke out in the liberal media after the artist confessed in one interview that he supported the National Front.
After that, notes AiF, as Alain Delon said that the National Front occupies an important place in the political life of France, and he “approves of this,” the organizers of the competition urged the jury members not to advertise their political affiliation. Delon responded to the organizing committee in writing:
“Your committee has decided to publicly respond to my statements about the policy of France. You have the right to do so, but it is not you who let me go, but I am leaving. Thus, I officially refuse the post of lifelong chairman of the jury of the "Miss France" contest.
Previously, Alain Delon negatively expressed about homosexuals. The article by Nabil Touati ("Le Huffington Post"; the source of translation is "InoSMI") are the actor's words about gays. In the “C à vous” program on France 5, Delon said that he has nothing “against gays who live together,” but he considers homosexuality as “unnatural.” He added:
“Well, yes, it is unnatural, sorry, but it is so. It is necessary to love women, to look after women ... and not to drag after men and not allow men to drag after themselves. ”
Concerning the adoption of children by same-sex couples, the film actor also replied:
“Yes, let them marry, I do not care for it deeply. But I do not want to be allowed adoption. "
As a result, the famous actor had the reputation of both homophobic and ultra-right, almost a fascist. As they say in the media, even the son Anthony dissociated himself from the statements of his father, as if deserving public condemnation. As befits a stern father, Delon Sr. advised his son to "shut up."
According to Eduard Limonovwho called the actor the national pride of France and the great gray luminary, standing next to people such as Belmondo, Aznavour and Depardieu, the French "tradition of tacit patience and calm neutrality is trampled upon Delon."
Limonov reminds that the actor gave an interview to the Swiss newspaper Le Matin, in which he supported the National Front. He was asked what he thinks about the projections for the European Parliament elections, in which the “Front” is ahead of all other French parties with 19% of votes. Delon replied:
“I just want to tell you that the breakthrough of the Geneva Citizens Movement, as well as the“ Front National ”breakthrough, is very encouraging. People knew another France under de Gaulle or even under Mitterrand. That is why the Front National, like the Geneva Citizens' Movement in Geneva, occupies a very important place, and I welcome it, I will promote it and understand it very well. ”
“For many years, Le Pen-Father and his daughter fought, but they led her alone. Now for the first time, they are no longer alone, with them all the French. It is important!"
Further, Limonov quotes the words of his old friend from Paris. He believes that France is divided into two countries: white and migrant. In France, the formation of a special culture of the Arabs, while the French remained only the elderly. In addition, the French were poorer. In the famous cafes sit today tourists ...
"This is not the same France in which we lived with you in the 80's, Edik."
According to Limonov, Delon "just looked at France with intent sober eyes."
And let us add on our own, if we return to the socialist president Hollande and his interior minister, it will become clear: amid the growing popularity of the National Front not only in France, but also in the EU, the government with its low rating actually has to implement ideas the far right, thereby neglecting internationalism, which, it seems, is supposed to be preached to the socialists. As a result - oh yeah, another political paradox! - Monsieur Hollande, instead of fulfilling his own promises, began to embody the ideas of the "National Front" ...
