March Against Halal in Lyon stopped

Le Figaro – May 4, 2011

Authorities in the Rhone have forbidden a “March of Pigs” which had been organized in Lyon for Saturday, May 14 claiming that the activity counters secular values and could cause public disorder. Organizers of the march positioned themselves against the expansion of the halal meet market in France and the concurrent Islamism taking place. Another group, the Collective Against the Extreme Right in the Rhone, organized their own protests claiming that the initial march could stigmatize an entire people and provoke hatred.
