French demonstration against the far-right | abroad

Several thousand people took to the streets in France to protest against the far right. Through their work, they want to express their dissatisfaction with the fact that the far-right candidate Marine Le Pen will advance to the second round of the presidential election. Protests erupted in Paris and in about thirty other French cities.

We are here to say no to the far right. “It would be a serious setback if he were to take power,” Jean-Francois Julliard, director general of France’s Greenpeace organization, said before leaving the rally from the National Square in Paris.

In total, about thirty organizations and trade unions, including the Human Rights League, the racist SOS, the CGT and the Judicial Union, called for action. The authorities expected the arrival of about 15 thousand people, including between three and four thousand in Paris.

Marine Le Pen will face incumbent President Emmanuel Macron in the second round of elections on April 24. During the first round of elections last weekend, Le Pen had to defeat the incumbent: He was able to convince nearly 28 percent of the electorate, and Le Pen got more than 23 percent of the vote.

Speaking to the press earlier this morning in Saint-Rémy-sur-Avre (Hure et Loire), Le Pen believes that “demonstrating against the election result is deeply anti-democratic”. “I think the French find it uncomfortable to see their choice stabbed in the street through demonstrations,” Le Pen said.
