Over 300 anti-migrant protesters marched through the streets of Paris on Saturday in a ‘Paris Pride’ (as in pride in being Parisian) demonstration organized by Generation Identitaire, a far-right youth group, and the Association of Paris Pride. The protesters carried flares and images of Paris’ patron saint, Saint Genevieve, as well as a banner reading ‘Defend Paris.’ The march has been held annually since 2005.
Investigators say the fire that started in the Parisian suburb of Boulogne-Billancourt at around 3:30am local time could have been set intentionally, France24 reported. Police discovered traces of combustible material and a fire accelerant near the entrance of the building.
“I think this is definitely an arson, because in the screaming I heard the people who were saying ‘don’t do this, don’t do this, stop’,” Gelson Alveal, a witness who lives across the street, told RT.
“In fact I think someone threw something in the window to break the glass and enter the building, which is why I heard the breaking glass, and exactly after this moment the fire started. It is a crime, no doubts,” he said.
However, it is yet to be confirmed whether the fire was arson.

Non-white invader insults french catholics praying just in Front of the now barred Ste-Rita church in Paris, the one in which priests and parishioners got thrown out of it during a mass just a few weeks ago and just a few days after a priest had his throat slit by islamic terrorists.
Apparently he came, told them that they were pitiful, played a music with lyrics “No god no masters” (a Spanish anarchist slogan), and instantly got what he deserved.
Hundreds of people marched through the streets of Paris waving French national flags and holding giant banners with“Generation Identitaire” and “Native Youth” written on them. They also sang the Marseillaise – the French national anthem.
Over 500 people joined the rally.
The protesters chanted anti-immigration and anti-islamization slogans such as “No to islamization,” “the French are angry”and “Here is our home!” They also burned flares and smoke bombs.
The demonstrators marched peacefully through the streets of the French capital, without any clashes with police reported. They eventually gathered at Place Monge not far from the Natural History Museum, were they staged a rally.
The rally, which took place under the slogan “We are home!” was organized by the French far-right youth movement Generation Identitaire formed in 2012 as the youth wing of the far-right Bloc Identitaire – a regionalist nativist French and European activist movement.
The action was aimed at calling on France and Europe to remain true to their traditions, values and identity as well as to resist what they called a “migrant invasion,” according to the protest organizers.
Generation Identitaire earlier provoked public controversy with its nationalist and anti-immigrant views. In March, more than a hundred protesters that took part in the Génération Identitaire rally in Calais blocked several routes for migrants, preventing them from gaining access to the city.
Before the rally, Génération Identitaire called Molenbeek a “breeding ground” for jihadists in a statement, in which it urged people to gather under the slogan “Expel the Islamists!”
