Grand Apéritif Républicain Protest Grows
The French Grand Apéritif Républicain anti-Islamisation campaign is growing. Originally it had been intended to hold its composite apéros républicains in five locations: Paris, Bordeaux, Lyon, Strasbourg and Toulouse, but now Toulon has also been added to the list. As you can see from the poster above, it looked as if Aix was also to host a protest, but this now appears to have been cancelled.
For English speakers holidaying in France, why not turn up at 6pm on Saturday 4 September and join the locals in condemning the Islamisation of France. The protest’s organiser, Christine Tasin of Résistance Républicaine, lists the rendezvous points as follows, but warns that locations may be subject to change if the local authorities so decree:
Paris, place de la Bourse.
Bordeaux, attention, changement de lieu. Devant le 1, Cours Xavier Arnozan (Angle du Cours Xavier Arnozan et du Quai des Chartrons) - Et non plus place Gambetta comme prévu.
Lyon, place Bellecour, à côté de la statue de Louis XIV
Strasbourg, Parc de l’Orangerie (face au Conseil de l’Europe)
Toulon, place de la Liberté
Toulouse, Prairie des Filtres (Près du Pont-Neuf et du Cours Dillon).
