Violence in Paris Spreads Involving 5 No-Go Areas*

Violence in Paris Spreads Involving 5 No-Go Areas*

 

Police in Paris are struggling to cope with the fall-out from a plague of riots which have kicked off in the city’s northern suburbs.

By Siobhan McFadyen

Five large areas have been reduced to no go areas for the past five nights as masked men cause mayhem on the streets.

Now there are fears the fall-out from allegations of police brutality could spread all over the country as unrest in the city grows.

Residents have been on lockdown as armed police tried to tackle the rioters who have caused millions of pounds of damage.

Police were hit with molotov cocktails and the heavy metal balls used in the French game Petanque.

And after setting cars and even a disability vehicle on fire the police have been forced to fire live rounds of bullets.

A reporter for the French TV company BMTV was also injured after being attacked.

The areas of Aulnay-Sous-Bois, Aulnay, Argenteuil, Bobigny and Tremblay-en-France in the Saint-Seine-Denis district have all been affected.

It follows allegations of horrific police brutality in a housing estate called Rose des Vents in Aulnay-Sous-Bois which is also known locally as the ‘city of 3000’.

Local residents and police forces have called the continued unrest “disgraceful” while the man allegedly assaulted by police named only as Theo has pleaded for calm.

Yves Lefebvre head of the police union said: “Setting a wheelchair van on fire is a disgrace. This has to stop.”

The French Government’s response to the latest outbreaks of violence is to put 2,600 cameras on police officers to record them out on the job.

Last night it was claimed rioters shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’ during violent protests in Paris where a car was set on fire.

Front National (FN) MP Marion Le Pen tweeted the amateur video which shows chaotic scenes including of clouds of smoke after cars were set on fire and a man yelling “Allahu Akbar”, Arabic for God is Greatest, three times.

The video shows cars beeping their horns as they try and leave the scene of anarchy with protesters shouting on the street.

The niece of the FN leader Marine Le Pen tweeted: “Rioters yelled “Allah Akbar” in Bobigny yesterday night”.

The video was filmed in Bobigny, which is a suburb of Paris where protesters have clashed with French riot police.

Soros’s Coup Causes Hundreds of Thousands of Fake Protestors Rock Rumania*

Soros’s Coup Causes Hundreds of Thousands of Fake Protestors Rock Rumania*

From Sean Adl-Tabatabai

Hundreds of thousands of protestors have taken to the streets in Rumania in an attempted coup by George Soros to overthrow the Rumanian government.

Amid chaotic riots across the country, Rumanians geared up for a sixth day of protests on Sunday under the guise of forcing its government to rid the country of corruption – despite the fact the President had already vowed to do so.

According to Alex Balan, President of the Union of Banat Rumanians, the protests are funded and orchestrated by George Soros in an effort to incite violence and overthrow the democratically elected government in order to install a more globalist-friendly regime.

By Alexa Balan

The following is an official statement, in Mr. Balan’s capacity as President of the Union of Banat Rumanians, in Serbia **
Yesterday’s massive demonstrations in Rumania, where around 100,000 people gathered, were sponsored and organized by Soros financed NGO’s in Romania, and by the Soros funded political party, the USR. They were praised and supported by the openly masonic German president of Rumania, Klaus Iohanis, who incited violence and called for a revolution.

This impostor won a rigged election, he is against Rumanian interests and calls for the so-called Europeanization of Rumania. Their excuse for rioting was the judiciary reform laws adopted by the new Socialist government, which are amnesty laws which would halt the political persecution of patriotic anti-globalist politicians in Rumania, at the hands of the CIA and Soros funded anti-corruption agency DNA. These protect the interests of multinational companies, and prosecutes nationalists by indicting them with false charges.

The present Socialist PSD government was elected by an overwhelming majority vote in December, over 50%, on their promises they would halt the further selling of Rumanian resources to foreigners, their anti IMF stance, Eurosceptic views, raising of pensions, eliminating taxes etc. The USR Soros party which led the maidan protest yesterday, only won 8% in the election. They recruited young deluded people over the internet, their aim was to storm the parliament building and seize power. They openly called for the lynching of government officials by publishing their addresses and phone numbers on the net.

Had they not been defeated by our brave police forces in Bucharest yesterday, they would have set up tents and other maidan like structures in the Bucharest city centre, Victoria square, and we all know to where that leads. We, the Rumanians of Serbia condemn the Soros protest and so do the majority of Rumanians in Rumania, and all over the world in our diaspora. My view is shared also by the Serbian Radical Party leader Dr. Seselj, whom I visited today.

But the crowd at the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture — the site of Busboys and Poets’ Peace Ball, an alternative inaugural ball dedicated to Hope and Resistance — didn’t take a seat. Instead, they stood on their feet as if trying to absorb some of the #blackgirlmagic before them.

Esperanza!!!! #resist #peaceballdc #peaceball2017

And Solange freely offered that much-needed energy to the audience, which counted activists and entertainers like Angela Davis, New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker, Ashley Judd, Danny Glover, DeRay Mckesson, Melissa Harris-Perry, Eddie Huang and Alice Walker among its attendees.

Thank you @esperanzaspalding for your stunning performance tonight at the #peaceball

Taking the stage in a white-hot jumpsuit, the singer, songwriter and style icon performed a soul-stirring set that included A Seat at the Table tracks, Rise, Weary, Cranes in the Sky, Mad and Don’t Touch My Hair, “anthems of our resistance” as Davis called them prior to her performance.

Solange wasn’t the only artist singing a sonnet to the souls of the guests, who gathered at the ball in solidarity. Esperanza Spalding also performed, soothing the crowd with the assistance of Afro Blue, Howard University’s premier choir.

Washington Post video reporter Dalton Bennett was pulled back and knocked down by riot police in downtown Washington D.C., while trying to video tape the arrest of dozens of anti-Trump protesters in Washington D.C.

Protesters wearing all black were arrested as part of an unauthorized march by a group calling itself the “Anti-Capitalist, Anti-Fascist Bloc.” According to a online appeal for marchers, the aim of the march was to “join together and demonstrate how to prevent Trump and his cronies from implementing their program.”

While marching south on 13th Street, protesters overturned trash cans and news racks. At one point, they smashed the windows of a parked, unoccupied limousine and threw a flare inside. After the protest turned east on I Street, marchers began smashing the windows of businesses and the screens of ATMs.

Riot police with batons, mace, and pepper spray arrived and pushed protesters into another line of armored police at 12th & L Streets, where several dozen were surrounded and arrested.

Stephen Ginsburg, senior politics editor for the Washington Post called Bennett’s treatment “unacceptable,” in a tweet.

Violence Breaks Out In Washington D.C. As Protesters Clash With Police

By Tyler Durden

As the feeds below from Washington demonstrate, the violence is escalating in the form of clashes between protesters and D.C. police. Black-clad activists angry about U.S. President Donald Trump’s inauguration have smashed store car windows and blocked traffic in Washington on Friday and fought with police in riot gear who responded with tear gas and stun grenades.

About 500 people, some wearing masks, marched through the city’s downtown, using hammers to claw up chunks of pavement to smash the windows of a Bank of America branch and a McDonald’s outlet, all symbols of the American capitalist system.

The crowd chanted anti-Trump slogans and carried signs with slogans including “Make Racists Afraid Again,” a play on the New York businessman-turned-politician’s “Make America Great Again” campaign slogan. The incident occurred about 90 minutes before Trump was sworn in at the Capitol a mile and a half (2.4 km) away.

According to Reuters, Washington police made “numerous” arrests on Friday after violent protests during Donald Trump’s inauguration, with individuals being charged with rioting, the city’s police department said. “Pepper spray and other control devices were used to control the criminal actors and protect persons and property,” the department said in a statement. The statement added that two police officers had sustained minor injuries from “coordinated attacks” and that police vehicles were damaged.

Two police officers sustained minor injuries from people who were trying to avoid arrest, police said.

“The message I want to send is that Trump does not represent this country. He represents the corporate interests,” said Jessica Reznicek, a 35-year-old Roman Catholic aid worker from Des Moines, Iowa, who was part of the protest but did not participate in the violence.

Not far from the White House, protesters scuffled with police, at one point throwing aluminum chairs at an outdoor café. Bob Hrifko, a member of the “Bikers for Trump” group in town to celebrate the inauguration, was struck in the face when he tried to intervene.

“I know, law and order and all that. We need more order. This ain’t right,” said Hrifko, who was bleeding from a cut under his eye.

Trump supporters Chris and Karen Korthaus, who carried a life-size cardboard cutout of the former reality TV star, crossed paths with an anti-Trump crowd.

“A protester came over and ripped off the Don’s head,” Karen Korthaus said as she showed a reporter a video of the incident.

“We ran to a pizza shop and taped his head back on”.

Carl Beams, 36, from Howell, New Jersey, stood in line with thousands of other Trump supporters waiting to enter the National Mall to view the inauguration.

 

Last night we noted that anti-Trump protesters had their first confrontation with police as American’s violent, disaffected youth threw eggs at guests and set fires outside of Trump International Hotel as people attempted to make their way to the new administration’s “Deploraball.”  But with the inauguration now over, protesters are showing no signs of slowing down as chaotic scenes of rioters destroying private property are flooding twitter.

Washington D.C. Turned Into “Virtual Fortress” As 250,000 Protesters Descend Upon the City*

By Tyler Durden

Over the past couple of days, we’ve highlighted a couple of the mass protests that are being planned by disaffected Hillary supporters in an effort to disrupt the various Trump inaugural events that get kicked off tomorrow evening.  Perhaps the most aggressive “disruptions” have been planned by groups called “DisruptJ20” and the “DC Anti-Fascist Coalition” and include plans to “paralyze the city” with “clusterfuck blockades” of bridges and tunnels, “stink bombs” in ventilation systems and chaining metro trains to station platforms to shut down rail traffic.  Unfortunately for them, all of their plans were caught on tape by Project Veritas (see “New Video Exposes Anti-Trump Groups Plotting Criminal Acts To Disrupt Inauguration“) so we suspect police will be well prepared.

As Reuters points out this morning, efforts to disrupt the inaugural process will have to evade a massive force of 28,000 security personnel and miles of fencing and roadblocks fortified by sand-laden dump trucks and other heavy equipment. 

Washington will turn into a virtual fortress ahead of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration on Friday, as the U.S. capital braces for more than a quarter-million protesters expected during the Republican’s swearing-in.

About 28,000 security personnel, miles (kilometres) of fencing, roadblocks, street barricades and dump trucks laden with sand will be part of the security cordon clamped around 3 square miles (almost 8 square km) of central Washington.

“If we do have a mass arrest, we’ll be able to get people processed very quickly,” he said in an interview with Washington’s NBC 4 television station.

And, if America’s millennial snowflakes are able to break through the police fortress they will undoubtedly be met by the Wall of Meat recently promised by the “Bikers for Trump” group which has vowed to go “toe-to-toe with anyone that is going to break through any police barriers.”

Overall, the inauguration is expected to draw a crowd of 900,000 with 250,000 of those guests showing up to protest the new President-elect.

Police have forecast that some 900,000 people, both supporters and opponents, will flood Washington for the inauguration ceremony, which includes the swearing-in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol and a parade to the White House along streets thronged with onlookers.

About 30 groups that organizers claim will draw about 270,000 protesters or Trump backers have received permits for rallies or marches before, during and after the swearing-in. More protests are expected without permits.

By far the biggest protest will be the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, which organizers expect to draw 250,000 people.

Luckily, at least one helpful protest group will be on hand with plans to calm down the rowdy masses by passing out 4,200 doobies.

One Washington inaugural protest will come amid a haze of pot smoke as pro-marijuana protesters show their opposition to Trump’s choice for attorney general, Alabama Republican Senator Jeff Sessions, a critic of pot legalization.

The group plans to distribute 4,200 joints at the inauguration and urge attendees to light up. Possession of small amounts of marijuana is legal in Washington, but public consumption is not.

As we’ve said before, we wish all the protesters the best of luck…we’re sure your dreams of disrupting the democratic process will be well rewarded with a free night’s stay at a local DC jail.

Large numbers of people took to the streets of Egypt on Tuesday evening to protest against the rising cost of housing in the country.

The demonstrations took place in the north-eastern city of Port Said, with reports that thousands of people took part.

The rising cost of housing prices was the main issue driving the demonstration, with protestors reportedly chanting “house us or kill us”.

There are also reports that Egyptians were calling for the removal of the mayor as well as the military more widely.

Local news sites reported a recent increase in rent prices from 7000 Egyptian Pounds ($788) to 47,000 ($5,292).

Videos have emerged on social media showing large masses of Egyptians blocking the main streets of Port Said chanting “we want our rights” and calling for Sisi’s resignation.

 

The protest comes amid calls for mass protests on 11 November to counter the current political system and the economic and social hardships Egyptians are facing.

Egyptian secret services have reportedly warned the Egyptian President not to take any “harsh decisions” that could further inflame the country before 11 November.

Having met with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) earlier this week, Egyptian Finance Minister Amr al-Garhy said the country would be getting an additional $6 billion in bilateral funding needed to secure a $12 billion IMF loan within a week or two. Sisi has already warned that Egyptians will face challenges – including the prospect of further price hikes and subsidy cuts – in order to secure this necessary funding for the country.

The hashtags #PortSaid and #PortSaidRises were trending in Arabic in Egypt on Tuesday night.

Many social media users referred to the protests as the beginning of another revolution for the country, which has been riven by strife since popular protests toppled longtime president Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

A lack of economic growth and price rises have been an issue at the forefront of Egyptian life in recent months – many have been expressing frustration and anger at the current government, with several videos voicing these opinions going viral in the past week.

1,000s March for Peace, against NATO in Berlin*

Thousands of anti-war demonstrators came out for a rally in Berlin over the weekend to protest the growing militarization of German policies and NATO’s confrontation with Russia over Syria.

On Saturday, protesters marched from Alexanderplatz to the Brandenburg Gate, where the demonstration continued with several speeches. German police estimated the number of participants at over 5,000, while the organizers said between 6,000 and 8,000 showed up.

Protesters said resources wasted on war would be better spent making life better for the people, demanding that Berlin scale down its military budget, withdraw its troops from all foreign missions, and stop selling arms to other governments.

“Our point of view is let’s come back to a politics of cooperation, dialogue and negotiations, we need these politics, not only in Syria and Ukraine, but all over the world in many, many countries,” one protester named Reiner Braun told Ruptly.

“The German government is definitely going the wrong way. Sanctions are not helpful; confrontation are not helpful; German troops in Poland and Ukraine are not helpful, so we are calling for deep change of the German politics against Russia,” he added.

The “Lay Down Your Arms” demonstration was organized by left-wing forces, which distanced themselves from right-wing groups for the latest event.

Left Party MP Sahra Wagenknecht, who was the key speaker at the protest, criticized the continued violence in Syria and the latest collapse of cooperation between Russia and the U.S., which has left the prospect of a peaceful resolution of the five-year-long conflict as distant as ever.
