French D-Day Activities Attract “Diverse” Crowd
Here are the pictures as promised! I just returned to good old Germany after an exciting weekend with our blog-brother Erik of No Pasaran! in Paris. Bush was in town so Erik and I decided to infiltrate the mandatory leftist protest march. The protestors were outraged by what they see as the recent “undemocratic” behavior of Bush and the USA. By looking at the pictures below you can see what the protestors have in mind when they talk about supporting the forces of democracy:
The sign reads: "Withdraw the occupation troops.
Solidarity with the Iraqi resistance."
We saw it all, Cuban flags, Soviet flags, Palestinian flags, Saddam-era Iraqi flags, banners saying that the US deserved 9-11 and calling Bush a terrorist and more.
This was Paris, France on the 60th anniversary weekend of D-Day, we shouldn't forget it. Don't count on the mainstream media to show you this though...
Part 2 will be posted tomorrow with additional pictures, it just gets better...
Here's Part 2.
