Initial reports suggested that only 300-400 people turned out for last night’s anti-Islamisation demonstration in Paris. However, as can be seen from the footage below, numbers seem to have been in excess of this estimate. Although falling somewhat short of its 7,000 Facebook supporters, Le Parisien (which typically branded the protest “far-right”) estimates that there were perhaps 800 people present. This seems more realistic. Given that the banning of the event had been widely publicised and that it had had to relocate from its original location of the Goutte d’Or, this number is perhaps not as disappointing as it initially appears.
As can be seen, the crowd were in good spirits. Sylvie François, Bloc Identitaire, Riposte Laïque and the many other supporters of this protest must be congratulated upon an imaginative riposte to Islamisation. I hope to see many more such protests and not only in France. Perhaps such an approach could be adopted here in Britain with a mass dogwalk with “seeing-eye dogs” leading the way in parks which have become effective no-go zones for native Britons because of Islamisation.
The third video below shows the Friday phenomenon which prompted this protest.
