French police arrested more than 100 people after gangs of masked youths stormed through Paris suburbs and the center of Lyon on Halloween night, authorities said on Thursday, following a message on social media calling for a “purge” against police.
15,000 police officers were deployed across France to keep some control over the coordinated riots.
This is far from the first warning that France is teetering on the edge of lawless chaos, nor the first indication that mass immigration and failed integration bear the brunt of the blame.
Voice Of Europe shared translated excerpts from an interview with France’s former Interior Minister Gerard Collomb, who warns that the rift in society may escalate to a point of an actual ‘split’ within the next five years. “Communities in France are fighting each other more and more and it’s becoming very violent”, noting that “people don’t want to live together” and that a “huge” part of the responsibility for this lies with immigration.
Last July, I wrote about a French report that found the French police is almost collapsing due to mass migration.
Migrant youths in the French suburbs have had their traditions for New Year’s Eve and Bastille Day for years now, always involving riots and hundreds of torched cars. A similar recipe was used for the ‘celebration’ of France winning the soccer World Cup.
