Paris Is Burning

Three nights ago in Paris, three teenagers were accidently killed when they jumped into an electrical substation while fleeing from police. There have been three nights of bloody riots, burning buildings and outright civil war in FrogLand since then. See if you can guess what group of people the rioters all belong to. The answer is in the last paragraph below ....

PARIS (MAIL & GUARDIAN)

Hundreds of French youths fought with police and set cars ablaze in a northern Paris suburb early on Saturday morning in a second successive night of rioting. The disorder was triggered last week when two teenagers were electrocuted and killed in a local substation while fleeing from police. French authorities insist they were running away from officers investigating a break-in, but people in Clichy-sous-Bois claim that the dead youths had committed no crime.

On Saturday afternoon, a silent march was held to the town hall in the centre of the suburb. Many protesters wore T-shirts bearing the message “Dead for nothing”. “We respect the republic,” said Siako Karne, the brother of one of the dead men. “The republic has to respect us.”

Firefighters extinguished more than 30 burning cars and dozens of dustbins pushed into makeshift barricades on Friday night and Saturday morning as running battles in the streets of the north-eastern suburb pitted more than 200 riot police against scores of hooded youths. At least one shot was fired at the police, 19 people were detained and 15 officers and one journalist injured, an official spokesperson said.

An officer from police trade union Action Police CFTC called for help from the army to support police officers. “There’s a civil war under way in Clichy-sous-Bois at the moment,” Michel Thooris, from Action Police CFTC, said. “My colleagues neither have the equipment nor the practical or theoretical training for street fighting.”

Clichy-sous-Bois is home to 28 300 people, a large number of whom are recent immigrants from North or Central Africa. Most live in rundown, low-rise public housing estates. Unemployment rates are among the highest in France and many locals see the police as “the enemy”.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
