Police prevents anti-Putin protest in Paris
- The information comes from a participant of the event:
In Paris, today, Oct. 31, the protest against dining
of Putin with Chirac e.a. near to the National Assembly
was prevented by the French police.
About 15 protesters: Chechens, French, Belarus and a Polish were
forcefully removed from the place and driven in the bus
to the police department and have been held for 2 hours.
The protesters were just staying waiting for Putin's excort
and even did not have chance to open their slogans before they
were removed. The police has filled in a report which they
told will be communicated to French ministers. The protesters
viewed this as a small success of their attempted protest action.
The large manifestation which took place in Paris yesterday
between 18.00 to 21.OO, seemingly still was not mentioned
by any news media, even not in French TV news. So much
about "unbiased" and "business-like" West.
