Mayor Leads Hundreds of French Villagers In Protest Against The Arrival of Migrants

French villagers are protesting the arrival of migrants who are being dispersed around the country as the government shuts down the slum-like camp in Calais that has become a flashpoint in Europe’s migrant crisis.

Competing anti & pro-migrant rallies were held Saturday in Pierrefeu in southeast France.

They come after Calais officials say they will be starting the process of bulldozing the sprawling camp within nine days.

Residents hold a banner reading: 'City of Pierrefeu says no to the creation of a reception centre for migrants'

Several hundred residents have marched through their town, led by the Mayor, against the plans to house about 60 migrants from the jungle there.

The mayor led several hundred people on a protest against a government proposal to house migrants in an abandoned wing of a psychiatric hospital while they apply for asylum or study other options. 

Anti-white activists held their own, smaller rally to welcome the migrants.

The morning gatherings were peaceful. The far-right National Front has plans for its own anti-migrant protest.

The National Front is urging mayors to resist the Calais relocation plan and is organizing or taking part in protests across the country this month. Resistance to immigration is central to the campaign platform of National Front leader Marine Le Pen in her bid for the French presidency next year.

  1. This is fantastic. I am also jealous of how tied in you are with all the various resistance groups across the continent. I am trying to get to that point myself but you are right, there are so many positive things going on it is hard to keep track of them all.

    1. The links on the side of the page are a good place to start, but a comprehensive list would be near impossible given how many of us there are now. If you search for the phrases “far right”, “neo nazi”, “white supremacist”, & “anti migrant” you’ll get lots of good mainstream news stories. Twitter is also great, it’s easy to keep up on lesser known groups, particularly non-English speaking ones & you get updates in near real time. Also, don’t be afraid to reach out to anybody! I’ve found most people are very friendly.
