1.4 million rally in Paris against same-sex “marriage”. Government uses tear gas against Families with Children
The French Government’s plan to introduce same-sex “marriages” increasingly looks like the act of tyranny of a ruling class that wants to rule against, and not for, the people. But the resistance is growing.
Despite the chilly weather, an estimated 1.4 million citizens participated in the second edition of the “demonstration for all” (Manifestation pour tous), making it the biggest political manifestation in this country since WWII. A similar event on 13 January had produced a turnout of one million.
President François Hollande’s Government persists in an attitude of self-incapsulation. Rather than listening to the people, it has decided to prevent the demonstration from taking place on the prestigious Avenue des Champs Elysées in order to spare the President the unpleasant sight of protesting citizens. Police made liberal use of tear gas and clubs against some of the peaceful demonstrators, thereby unmasking the true character of the Government’s LGBT-project.
The Senate will discuss the draft law, which already has been rushed through the National Assembly, in the first week of April.
