Mayor Of Paris Bans Black Afro-Fem Festival

BBC News         Posted Sun., Night, May 28, 2017

The mayor of Paris has called for a black feminist festival in the city to be banned on the grounds that it excludes white people.

At the Nyansapo Festival in July, billed as “blackfeminist”, 80% of the venue will be reserved for black women.
Black people of any gender will be allowed in another area, while a third area will be open to all.

Anne Hidalgo tweeted that she reserved the right “to prosecute the organisers for discrimination”.
Some French anti-racism organisations have condemned the festival.

SOS Racisme called it “an abomination” and said it “wallows in ethnic separation”, while Licra, the International League against Racism and Antisemitism, said: “Rosa Parks would be turning in her grave.”

On Friday the regional head of the far-right National Front party had challenged Ms Hidalgo to explain the “blatantly racist” event.

The organisers said in a statement (in French) that they had been “the target of a campaign of disinformation and fake news orchestrated by the extreme right” and they were “saddened to see some anti-racist associations let themselves be manipulated”.

They continued by mentioning that many had “no problem” with women-only feminist groups when race was not stipulated.

The festival is scheduled to take place in a property owned by the city of Paris, but the restricted event is in a public area. Organisers said the mayor subsequently had no jurisdiction over the event.

About ron abbass

Because of my last name, there are some who might think I'm a Muslim. I'm an older student of the bible and I regard myself as Christian-other. That is, I was baptized in a Torah-keeping assembly. I'm one who tries his best to follow Yayshua, the Messiah (Christ) by keeping the commandments, the dietary laws, the weekly Sabbath and the annual Sabbaths (Holy Days) instituted and ordained by the great I AM, the Creator-God of Israel. I reject the holidays and festivals invented by the Roman church. Truth-seeking is my present passion. Presently, I do a lot of research into the World Wars, the mass media, the Holocaust, Zionism, Health Issues, 9/11 and the power brokers who are behind the New World Order that is gradually being established mainly in the Western Nations. Many prognosticators (prophets) both secular and religious are warning us that we are living "On the Eve of Destruction" - the last days. There's a very good chance a nuclear tsunami will eventually visit many nations. Peace and blessings to all who love the truth and hate the lies.
