Paris: Chinese protest against lack of security

Islam in Europe/thanks to all who sent this in!

Reports of Chinese nationals in France being robbed have become more common in recent years.

“Poor Public Order in French Society”

The protest was organized after a Chinese man was arrested for shooting a mugger. The AFP reports about the protest as follows:

On the night of June 1, when a group of local gangsters cornered and robbed some Chinese nationals who were leaving Chinatown Belleville after a wedding, Zhong grabbed a gun and wounded a gangster, reported Nouvelles D’Europe, a Chinese language daily newspaper in Europe.

Zhong, a Wenzhou businessman, was later taken away by police and is still under arrest, according to the newspaper.   Paris police said the problem was not Zhong shooting in self defense, but illegally possessing guns, the newspaper said.

As a result  Thousands of Chinese immigrants in Paris took to the streets to protest their lack of security. They say they are being mugged and robbed by gangs of  (Muslim) ‘youth’ and that the police aren’t doing anything against it. The protest slogan was “Security for all, solidarity with the Chinese of Paris”. Signs with the slogans and “I love Belleville” shirts were handed out in advance by the organizers.

Expect no sympathy from the Socialist apparatchik  Sarkozy, who was falsely portrayed as “right wing” before his election, but adheres to an utopian moonbat view:

I would like to say one thing, in what is my conception of the Republic, security is the responsibility of the State, I am against militias, I am against the private ownership of firearms, and I’m trying to make you think about that. If you are assaulted by an armed burglar, he’ll use his weapon more effectively than you anyway so you’re risking your life. If the criminal is not armed and you are and you shoot, your life will be ruined, because killing someone over a theft is not in line with the republican values that are mine. The private ownership of firearms is dangerous. I understand your exasperation for having been burglarized two times, I understand the fear that your wife and daughter may have but the answer is in the efficiency of the police and the efficiency of the judiciary process, the answer is not in having guns at home.

  1. Belleville, Paris
    On the day of the riots

    – We’ve had it, the Chinese say. One, with the black jacket says: It’s like this every day, from morning till night. They’re stepping on us.
    – And we don’t even dare file a complaint, the guy in the white T-shirt explains.

    The well armed police took five hours to clear the streets after the battle.

    The next day, there were still traces on the battlefield, and nobody in the area was eager to talk to the TV team.

    The Mayor of Belleville says, however, that since this neighborhood over the years has gotten used to a certain degree of disagreements, she does not foresee any ethnic war in the near future.

    On the other hand, underlining the fact that these Chinese are French by law, the mayor encourages the Chinese to interact with her office, regarding security, education, culture, language, etc for a better integration.
