'Why Would US Ensure Our Defence?' France Urges EU to Boost 'Strategic Autonomy' Amid AUKUS Fallout

France earlier recalled its ambassadors from the United States and Australia amid Washington, Canberra, and London creating a trilateral security deal to supply Australia with nuclear-powered submarines instead of French-made conventional vessels.
French Secretary of Foreign Affairs Clement Beaune urged Europe to "strengthen [its] capacities for reflection, strategic autonomy, and defence" when speaking to France24 on Saturday.

AUKUS fallout: France pledges to ‘defend truly multilateral international order’ with India amid diplomatic row with Australia-US

The French and Indian foreign ministers spoke over the phone on Saturday, vowing to deepen their strategic partnership now that Paris’ ties with the US and Australia have been strained by a submarine deal debacle.

France and India will “work on a joint program of concrete actions to defend a truly multilateral international order,” French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian and his Indian counterpart, Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, said in a statement on Saturday. Released by the French foreign ministry, it also said the two had discussed the situation in Afghanistan and the Indo-Pacific.

In One Sentence, France Just Insulted Biden & Vindicated Trump

The French Embassy in Washington, D.C., canceled a gala to protest being pushed out of a multibillion-dollar deal between the United States and the United Kingdom to support Australia getting nuclear-powered submarines.

Friday’s gala was scheduled to celebrate the long history of diplomatic ties between France and the U.S., but a French official told the New York Times that continuing with the event would be “ridiculous” in light of the pressure.

It was specifically going to mark the 240th anniversary of the 1781 Battle of the Capes, in which the French navy secured sea supply lanes to give goods and weapons the Americans needed to win the Revolutionary War. The party was to take place at the embassy in Washington, D.C., and on a French frigate docked in Baltimore.

Medical staff shortages feared in France as health care workers balk at COVID-19 vaccine mandates

The French government noted that as of Sept. 7, about 84 percent of the country’s health care staffers were vaccinated, but that leaves a lot of workers who, potentially, won’t be able to work and fill shifts if they don’t comply by the deadlines.

And it’s very likely that the employers will comply; under Macron’s order, companies and hospitals who don’t will be fined $160 (130 euros) per violation but those can climb to $4,430 (3,750 euros) if they are fined three times in a month, French media reported.

Oh, and there is prison time involved as well; six months behind bars, potentially.

It’s insanity — all of this over a virus with a 99.7 percent recovery and survival rate.

France Accuses "Backstabbing" Biden Of Being 'Worse Than Trump' As UK-Aussie Defense Pact Sinks Sub Deal

As it turns out, while President Biden was celebrating yesterday's "historic" security pact between the US, UK and Australia to establish a "partnership" that will help furnish Canberra with US nuclear submarine technology, one American ally was sulking in defeat.

Back in 2016, Australia had signed $40 billion contract with France's Naval Group to build a new submarine fleet to replace the Aussie's aging fleet of Collins subs. But apparently, the new deal with the US and UK makes this deal unnecessary (since Australia will now be getting its subs from the US, not France), essentially stealing a major $40 billion deal out of the mouth of the French defense industry.

France leads the way in holding Covid incompetents to account for their mismanagement and indecision as millions died

Former French Health Minister Agnès Buzyn faces a possible prison term and heavy fine for “endangering the life of others” in her mishandling of the coronavirus pandemic, as France leads the way in making its leaders accountable.

Despite the massive failures by governments and public health officials across the globe in dealing with the pandemic, it’s only the dead that really pay any sort of price. Most of the so-called experts simply move on, retire, or fade back into academia or big pharma where many of them came from.

WATCH: Tear gas & clashes in Paris as thousands protest over Covid-19 health passes for 9th consecutive weekend

Demonstrators took to the streets of the French capital on Saturday to voice their discontent with the coronavirus health pass policy for the ninth weekend in a row. The protest quickly descended into clashes with police.

Four large-scale demonstrations were scheduled in Paris for Saturday. Crowds of people marched through the streets in various parts of the city, surrounded by tight cordons of police officers wearing riot gear.

The protesters were waving French national flags and holding placards that read: ‘health is not a business’. Some flags of leftist and even Royalist groups were seen in the crowds as well.

The Streets Of France Turn Into Warzones As Hundreds Of Thousands Clash Over Vaccine Passports

There have been ugly scenes in one French city as those protesting a vaccine passport mandate clashed with masked people.

More than 120,000 people demonstrated across France on Saturday, according to official figures, to protest the coronavirus health passes they say discriminate against the unvaccinated.

Footage posted to Twitter by @HZ_Press shows those marching in the southern French city of Toulouse clashing with people wearing masks.

The video, which has been viewed more than 3.4 million times, shows people physically attacking each other with long sticks, with things becoming so chaotic that crowds scatter.

The health pass, or a recent negative Covid test, is required to enter cafes, restaurants and many other public places.

The French interior ministry said 121,000 had demonstrated in France, 19,000 people of them in the capital Paris where police arrested 85 people after clashes broke out.

"Police prefect expresses its support to the 13 injured police officers," the police department tweeted.

It added that three people had been arrested.

Almost 160,000 demonstrators took part in the nationwide rallies against the health passes on Saturday.

France, Britain to Propose ‘Safe Zone’ in Kabul at UNSC Meeting

France and Britain are expected to propose a resolution for the establishment of a safe zone in Kabul at an emergency meeting on Afghanistan of the United Nations Security Council which will be held on Monday.

French President Emmanuel Macron has said the proposal for the creation of a safe zone is aimed to allow humanitarian assistance and safe passage for people trying to leave Afghanistan.

According to Macron, the safe zone will operate under the oversight of the United Nations.

“It can mobilize the whole international community, and it also puts pressure on the Taliban,” Macron said.

The Taliban has responded to France and Britain, saying the creation of a safe zone in Kabul is unnecessary.

“When you create a safe zone in a time of peace, it means the country is not secure. In the past, around 300 to 400 people were killed daily, but today no one is being killed in the entire country,” said Sayed Akbar Agha, a former Taliban commander.

100+ people denounce Covid health passes by holding protest ‘picnic’ outside restaurants in Reims, France (VIDEO)

Protesters dined while sitting on the ground outside cafes and restaurants in the French city of Reims on Wednesday, rejecting the country’s restrictive Covid-19 health-pass system.

In an action dubbed “the giant picnic”, people sat on the cobbles of Erlon Square, enjoying their meals outside cafes and restaurants where they could not enter unless they had a valid health pass.

The calm protest was different from louder demonstrations against Covid-related restrictions that have been taking place in the last six weeks. During such rallies, participants banged on drums, carried flags and placards, and sometimes clashed with police in Paris and elsewhere.

The use of health passes was expanded in France last month as the country has been fighting against a surge in infections with the more contagious Delta variant of the virus.

‘Afghan Roulette’ UK, France Accidentally Evacuate Security Risk Individuals

The French government admitted on Monday that it has repatriated an Afghani man and his four relatives despite being aware of intelligence that he was connected to the Taliban, with similar security failures witnessed in the UK.

As nations across Europe grapple with increased security concerns over the evacuation of asylum seekers from Afghanistan following President Joe Biden’s disastrous military withdrawal from the country, the French government has been accused of helping the Taliban establish a “fifth column” in the nation.

On Monday, French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin admitted: “Even if this person greatly assisted in the evacuation of the French embassy, ??we believe that he may be linked to the Taliban.”

French government attempts to STARVE OUT the unvaccinated by blocking their access to grocery stores… nation on the verge of REVOLT

A new video is circulating that shows angry French shoppers protesting outside of a grocery store that refuses to let them buy food without first showing proof of Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccination.”

The incident occurred just a few weeks after French President Emmanuel Macron decided to force Chinese Virus injection “passports” on the French people, who ever since have been protesting all across their land.

While many stores and restaurants throughout France are refusing to go along with Macron’s fascist scheme, some, including the store depicted in the video – you can watch it below – are attempting to starve out people who refuse to permanently alter their DNA with experimental gene therapy (mRNA) chemicals.

Hundreds of thousands protest discriminatory COVID-19 vaccine passports in France

France’s COVID-19 vaccine passport mandate that stops unvaccinated people from going into restaurants or bars and taking long-distance trips is being met with a significant amount of resistance as tens of thousands of protesters hit the streets this weekend to demonstrate their opposition.

According to France’s Interior Ministry, 215,000 people are believed to have participated in protests, which is only slightly less than the 237,000 people who were estimated to have protested the week before. Around 1,600 police officers were sent to three separate marches in Paris, but authorities did not release any information about possible arrests.

Demonstrations were held in cities such as Paris, Marseille and Nice, where protesters chanted refrains about freedom and told the government to “take back your pass” in reference to the vaccine passport.

‘Liberté’: Thousands take to the streets in Paris to once again decry Covid-19 health pass restrictions

Thousands of people have marched in the center of the French capital for the sixth consecutive weekend to denounce the so-called coronavirus health pass that they see as an infringement of the rights of unvaccinated citizens.

The rallies began in mid-July after Emmanuel Macron’s government introduced a system that made presenting a vaccination certificate or negative Covid-19 test obligatory for those willing to visit a restaurant, theater, cinema and shopping mall or travel on a long-distance train.

The authorities insist that the QR codes are needed to encourage people to get the jabs and avoid the fourth lockdown in the country, which saw some 6.6 million getting infected and over 113,000 dying due to the coronavirus.

White House Omits Macron Plea For 'Moral Responsibility' In Afghanistan; ABC Cuts 'Unflattering' Interview Segments

In the French government's readout of the conversation between the two leaders, Macron tells Biden that the US and its allies have a "moral responsibility' to ensure the safe evacuation of Afghan citizens who assisted US and European troops for the past two decades - who, along with their families, are now at great risk Taliban death squads, according to The Guardian.

"We cannot abandon them," Macron told Biden.

The White House, however, made no mention of Macron's comments about 'moral responsibility.'

"They lauded the tireless efforts of their personnel working closely together in Kabul on the evacuation of their citizens, the brave Afghans who have stood by us and our Nato partners, and other vulnerable Afghan nationals," reads a White House description of the call.

UK, France Sending in Troops to Rescue Citizens While US Relies on Taliban for Safe Passage of Americans

While other countries rescue their citizens from the Taliban-controlled country of Afghanistan, President Joe Biden’s military has decided to, instead, negotiate with terrorists.

The Kabul airport has been secured by U.S. forces, but for American citizens left outside its perimeter, it doesn’t appear that a rescue is coming any time soon.

Taliban soldiers quickly surrounded and secured the perimeter of the airport and are reportedly blocking the entrance from both U.S. residents and eligible Afghans.

French government official, feminists, journalists furious at private TV station for airing ‘Unplanned’

A small French private television channel, C8, is in the crosshairs of the national media watchdog CSA (“Conseil supérieur de l’audiovisuel”) because it broadcast Unplanned, the true story of Abby Johnson’s pro-life conversion after a career at Planned Parenthood. Even government ministers stepped in to condemn the program, suggesting that it might be against the law.

The full-length film was aired on Monday evening at prime time, garnering an audience of 304,000 (1.5 percent of total viewers that evening in France, instead of an average of 2 percent on other evenings, according to “PureMedias,” an audience rating agency). But the event made national headlines after a three-week long build-up of controversy that started late last month when two “off” voices for C8, Chloé Sitbon and Guillaume Orsat, went public about their refusal to contribute to teasers announcing the film.

Crash! France’s repeated health pass system fails are leaving citizens without the QR codes needed for daily life

France has gone authoritarian in inept fashion, as its bid to control the movement of its citizens failed TWICE in a week when the platform that generates government QR codes was overwhelmed. The result, predictably, was chaos.

France and other budding authoritarian countries with ambitions to lord over their citizens’ movements by introducing health passes have eyes that are bigger than their stomachs. They have proven repeatedly that they’re far too incompetent to practice proper authoritarianism. Events last week are a case in point.

Macron In Provocative Afghan Remarks Warns Europe Must "Protect" Itself Against New Refugee Wave

After the last 72 hours of mayhem and shocking scenes of tens of thousands of Afghans who previously assisted US and NATO occupying forces attempting to desperately catch any departing plane out of Kabul's airport as the Taliban's grip closed in, Turkey, Europe and the US are bracing for a new refugee wave akin to the 2015 crisis.

Turkey is expected to feel the shock first, given it's already long been a jumping-off point for Afghans making the arduous trip to Europe. The past decade alone has seen some 600,000 Afghans settle in Turkey - all the while a mass wave of Syrian refugees exited there as well, many which are still along Turkey's southern border (over 3 million).

France sees fifth weekend of protests against Macron Covid pass

Protesters opposing a health pass championed by President Emmanuel Macron to defeat Covid-19 massed in streets across France for the fifth successive weekend Saturday, refusing to give in after the measure was fully implemented.

Macron sees the health pass -- which essentially makes vaccination essential to carry on with routine activities like sipping a coffee in a cafe or travelling on a train -- as the key to emerging from the pandemic and avoiding further lockdowns.

But protesters -- an eclectic mix of far-right, yellow vest anti-inequality activists, anti-vaxxers and civil liberties campaigners -- say that the policy encroaches on the basic freedoms so prized by the French.

Two separate protests were taking place in Paris -- in a sign of the inability of the protesters to fully unite -- with slogans like "free France!", "stop the corona-madness" or "yes to the freedom to choose" being chanted and brandished.

‘I joined the march in Avignon’: massive protests across France for fourth Saturday in row

Hundreds of thousands of people demonstrated in France on the fourth Saturday running since President Macron announced mandatory vaccination for health workers and an extended “sanitary pass” proving anti-COVID “vaccination” or negative SARS-CoV-2 status.

I joined the march in Avignon, in the south of France, where thousands of people of all ages and political horizons walked for more than two hours through the ancient streets of the city where nine popes had their residence in the 14th century. The weather forecast that had promised showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon did not deter a peaceful but determined crowd whose numbers –?as in 180 other cities in France, not counting spontaneous gatherings in many small towns across the country – had grown once again compared with previous weeks.

Thousands of demonstrators marched through the French capital on Saturday as riot police clad in helmets and body armor tagged along. The vast majority of protesters appear to have been peaceful, although several isolated incidents were observed in which police deployed pepper spray.

French President Emmanuel Macron has stepped up criticism of radical anti-vaccine demonstrators who oppose his push to boost vaccination across the country. “I won’t give in to their radical violence at all,” Macron said in an interview with Paris Match magazine, according to excerpts made available online before the full article is published on Thursday. “Their attitude is a threat to democracy. They mix up everything.” “A few tens of thousands of people have lost their minds to such an extent that they are capable of saying we live in a dictatorship,” Macron said. Anti-vaccine activists claim that government measures that make vaccination almost mandatory for those who wish to resume a normal life are oppressive.

French firefighters’ & hospital unions declare strikes against ‘unconstitutional’ vaccination mandate

Two French unions have called for strikes against the compulsory vaccination of firefighters, healthcare workers, and caregivers. They say the measure violates fundamental rights.

One of the leading French firefighters’ unions, FA/SPP-PATS, which boasts 7,000 members, said it will go on strike starting Monday unless changes are made to the recent law on compulsory vaccination of certain employees.

“The obligatory vaccination of firefighters under [the threat] of penalty violates the constitution,” the union said in a statement.

“Our union does not oppose vaccination,” the organization’s spokesperson, Andre Goretti, told BFM TV. “But the conditions, under which it is being imposed on the professional level, with [the threat of] financial and other sanctions – that’s where we disagree.”

The hospital and caregivers’ union, SUD Sante Sociaux, also called for a strike and protests against the measure which it labelled “a new attack on labor law.”

Something Truly Remarkable is Unfolding in France, And It’s Starting to Feel a Little “King Louis-ish”

If you’re not familiar with the French Revolution (May 5, 1789 – November 9, 1799), it was an incredible period of sweeping political and societal change in France.

And while there were many different circumstances and reasons which sparked the revolution, it really boiled down to three main crisis points: social, political, and economic. And one of the most formidable groups spearheading the push for reform were the peasants — or as we’d call them today, the “working class.”

French peasants were furious over rapid population growth, harvest failures, physiocratic calls for modernization of agriculture — basically “agricultural economists” seeking to revamp farming – -as well as the rising cost of dues paid out to the Lords who owned the land.

These issues were the driving force behind the peasants’ desire to demolish feudalism in France.

France has been engulfed by protests in recent weeks as the government introduced new measures to stem the rapid spread of coronavirus strains across the nation, including so-called health passes for public venues that show a person either has antibodies, was vaxxed, or has a negative PCR test.

Sputnik is live from the French capital on Saturday, 31 July, as Parisians take to the streets to protest against mandatory coronavirus vaccination and new restrictions. The protests have been rocking the nation for weeks, with the public venting their anger over new government legislation designed to tackle the spread of COVID.

France fines Monsanto for illegally acquiring data on journalists, activists

France's personal data protection agency on Wednesday fined US firm Monsanto for illegally compiling files of public figures, journalists and activists with the aim of swaying opinion towards support for its controversial pesticides.

The firm, now owned by German chemical giant Bayer, failed to inform the people on the watch lists compiled in the context of a heated public debate about glyphosate, a weed killer, it ruled.

The CNIL agency fined Monsanto 400,000 euros ($473,000) in the case brought by seven plaintiffs.

Compiling lists of contacts was not in itself illegal, the agency said, but only people who could "reasonably expect" to figure on such lists because of their business sector or their public standing should have been included.

Furthermore, data had to be collected legally and targets informed, including of their right to refuse being listed. By keeping the lists secret, Monsanto deprived them of this right, CNIL said.

Macron Files Complaint Against Creator of Photomontage Depicting French Leader as Hitler

French President Emmanuel Macron's legal team has filed a complaint against the activist who photoshopped the head of state's face into a picture of Adolf Hitler in protest of the government's COVID-19 vaccination policy, the BFM TV broadcaster reported on Wednesday.

The posters, showing moustachioed Macron dressed as the Nazi dictator, were seen on the streets of Toulon and La Seyne-sur-Mer during protests against compulsory COVID-19 vaccination for certain professions and the extension of the health pass to bars, restaurants, leisure and cultural venues all over France. The photomontage also had "Obey, get vaccinated" written on it.

Earlier this month, Toulon prosecutors launched a criminal case into the incident.

Legal proceedings have been initiated against Michel-Ange Flori, who is now reportedly charged with defamatory libel.

The French intelligence service’s warning that pro-freedom, anti-health pass protesters pose a new terror threat is risible

The security agency fears citizens opposed to the government’s liberticidal Covid rules might turn to extremism. But it is the Macron government’s own draconian actions that are fomenting radical dissent.

A new law christening the Covid-19 health pass and QR code tracking system in the daily lives of French citizens has cleared hurdles in the Senate, with only the Constitutional Council standing between freedom and a new world in which French citizens are required to present proof of an anti-Covid double-jab, or a nose swab test within the previous 48 hours, to access restaurants, movie theaters, gyms, swimming pools, bars, hospitals, and some shopping centers.

The pass would also become a condition of continued paid employment for those working in these venues, along with non-negotiable mandatory jabs for health care workers.

The Russian Embassy in France on Monday expressed outrage over remarks by Christophe Castaner, the leader of the "La Republique En Marche!" group in the parliament, on allegations of a link between Moscow and anti-vaccination communities on social media.

On Thursday, Castaner replied in the affirmative when asked by an anchor of the French radio station RMC whether other countries, including Russia, could be behind such community groups.

"It is with surprise and outrage we have heard the claim by Christophe Castaner that ‘Russia or other countries’ might be behind the community groups of anti-vaccine advocates on social media. We would like to underscore that we firmly support the maximum vaccine coverage of the planet’s population [against COVID-19]," the embassy wrote on Facebook.

French ex-justice minister Rachida Dati who was tipped to become country's first female president faces 15 years in jail for corruption over £766,000 payment from on-the-run ex-Renault boss

A former Justice Minister of France who was strongly tipped to become the country's first female President was today facing up to 15 years in prison after being charged with a range of corruption offences.

The indictment of Rachida Dati, 55, follows a glittering career which at one stage saw the right-wing conservative being entertained by the Queen and Prince Philip at a Windsor Castle state banquet.

On Tuesday night, financial prosecutors in Paris confirmed Dati had been charged with 'passive corruption by a person with a public elected mandate while working in an international organisation,' which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, and a fine equivalent to £128,000.

Cuba's Embassy In Paris Damaged In Molotov Cocktail Attack

The Cuban Embassy in Paris has denounced as "terrorism" a Molotov cocktail attack Monday night, which it said caused significant damage.

Noting that the overnight attack left no injuries to diplomatic staff or bystanders, an official statement pointed the finger at the United States, strangely enough, despite no suspects as yet being apprehended.

France Lashes Out At Iran - "Risks Jeopardizing" Stalled Nuclear Talks

Despite recently being seen as among the most supportive JCPOA signatories who want to see a completed nuclear deal, France is now accusing Iran of needlessly dragging out indirect negotiations with the US in Vienna. The talks have remained stalled ahead of the seventh round of talks, which the Iranian side said would resume after Iran's president-elect Ibrahim Raisi takes office on August 3rd.

France's foreign ministry laid blame for the long stall at Tehran's feet, however, saying "If it continues on this path, not only will it continue to delay when an agreement to lift sanctions can be reached, but it risks jeopardizing the very possibility of concluding the Vienna talks and restoring the JCPOA."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The impasse is not Iran's fault! Iran wants the Unites States to remove the sanctions the US already agreed to in the original JCPOA and the US is refusing!

France Warned US in 2015 About Wuhan Lab It Helped Build, Former COVID-19 Investigator Claims

The U.S. federal government should have stopped funding research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in 2015 when China reduced its cooperation with the French in building and operating the lab, according to the leader of an investigation into COVID-19’s origins by the State Department under the Trump administration.

In 2015, French intelligence officials warned the U.S. State Department and their own foreign ministry that China was cutting back on agreed collaboration at the lab, former State official David Asher, now a senior fellow at the Hudson Institute think tank, told the Daily Caller News Foundation.

By 2017, the French “were kicked out” of the lab and cooperation ceased, leading French officials to warn the State Department that they had grave concerns as to Chinese motivations, according to Asher.

Tens of thousands of people have taken to the streets of French cities for the second weekend in a row to protest against health passes and mandatory vaccination for medics. In Paris, rallies ended up in scuffles with police.

‘This is not freedom’: Macron denounces ‘irresponsibility and egoism’ of those who refuse Covid jab

French President Emmanuel Macron argued on Sunday that refusing to be vaccinated against Covid-19 is not “freedom” because anti-vaxxers infect and kill others through their “irresponsibility” and “egoism.”

Macron said during a visit to French Polynesia that though “everyone is free to express themselves,” there is “no such thing as freedom where I owe nothing to anyone.”

What is your freedom worth if you say to me ‘I don’t want to be vaccinated,’ but tomorrow you infect your father, your mother or myself?

Macron To Discuss Legacy Of Nuclear Tests In French Polynesia

French President Emmanuel Macron was greeted with flower garlands and Tahitian dancers on the tarmac as he touched down Saturday night for his first official trip to French Polynesia.

While in the South Pacific territory, he plans to discuss its strategic role, the legacy of nuclear tests and the existential risk of rising seas posed by global warming.

Residents in the sprawling archipelago of more than 100 islands located midway between Mexico and Australia are hoping Macron confirms compensation for radiation victims following decades of nuclear testing as France pursued atomic weapons.

The tests remain a source of deep resentment, seen as evidence of racist colonial attitudes that disregarded the lives of islanders.

French Police Lay Down Shields Join 100,000 Protesters Marching Against Vaccine Passport

“The health pass will never be a right of access that discriminates among the French. It cannot be made compulsory for access to everyday places,” French President Emmanuel Macron pledged in April during an interview with the regional press. However, less than three months later and Macron has done an about-face.

Last week, in full totalitarian form, Macron mandated the “health pass” or (pass sanitaire) that will be mandatory in order to gain access to leisure and cultural venues with more than 50 people, including cinemas and museums. From the beginning of August, it will be necessary to show your health pass to have coffee or eat lunch at a restaurant – even on an outdoor terrace – or to shop at a mall.

In order to have a coffee in France, beginning next month, citizens will have to prove they’ve had the vaccine. According to the government’s draft bill, restaurants and businesses who refuse to comply will be fined up to €45,000 and proprietors face up to a year in prison.

Investigation opened into giant Macron-Hitler billboard comparing Covid policy to Nazi regime

The Toulon prosecutor's office has opened an investigation into a defamatory poster which conflates images of French President Emmanuel Macron and Nazi leader Adolf Hitler, amid criticism of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.

A billboard seen on the outskirts of Toulon and La Seyne-sur-Mer, displaying an image of French President Emmanuel Macron dressed in a Nazi uniform and sporting Adolf Hitler’s trademark toothbrush moustache, has caught the attention of the city’s prosecutor, according to local media reports.

A report in France Bleu on Tuesday morning stated that the Toulon prosecutor’s office had now opened an investigation into the defamatory posters displayed in the Var department.

Emmanuel Macron identified in leaked Pegasus project data

The leaked database at the heart of the Pegasus project includes the mobile phone numbers of the French president, Emmanuel Macron, and 13 other heads of state and heads of government, the Guardian can reveal.

The South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa, and the Pakistani prime minister, Imran Khan, are also listed in the data, which includes diplomats, military chiefs and senior politicians from 34 countries.

The appearance of a number on the leaked list – which includes numbers selected by governments that are clients of NSO Group, the Israeli spyware firm – does not mean it was subject to an attempted or successful hack. NSO insists the database has “no relevance” to the company.

France Rises Up Against The New Fascism

By Winter Oak

“The people have woken up – at last!” declared local Gilet Jaune rebel Michelle as she watched the vast crowds assembling on the main square of Montpellier in southern France.

She has been involved with the Yellow Vest movement since the very start of the popular revolt against the Macron regime in November 2018.

Two years ago, in April 2019, another Gilet Jaune told me on the same spot, the Place de la Comédie, that France was witnessing “a turning point in history”.

Despite the vast levels of militarised repression used against the Yellow Vests, not to speak of the relentless propaganda in the mass media, the movement never abandoned the struggle.

Only the “emergency” of the Covid crisis pushed it, more or less, off the streets.

The spirit of revolt has not been very much in evidence in France since March 2020, with the population divided and fearful, as elsewhere.
