250,000 to 300,000 Far Right nut jobs Protest Gay Marriage in France---

Over 4000 policemen were deployed in Paris to prevent any outbreak of violence, as the biggest-ever rightwing demonstration against same sex marriage got under way. Police arrested over 50 demonstrators who had chained themselves to railings on the Avenue des Champs Elysees. This final whip of the anti gay marriage, rightwing tail comes just three days prior to the first legal gay marriage in France scheduled for May 29.

Police placed the number of demonstrators at 150,000 but independent observers said there were between 250,000 to 300,000 people in the streets. Volatile far-right groups are expected to go on the rampage late Sunday night and police are taking no chances, especially after the discovery of a large quantity of masks, smoke canisters and banners.

1. Will republicans start liking France now?

 



It's amazing that people can get so riled up about something that doesn't affect them in any way.
