French artist arrested for wearing a French-flag burqa

News Agencies – June 21, 2011

Yohan, AKA ‘Yo du Milieu’, a French artist from Caen, was recently arrested during a protest for ‘insulting the flag’ by wearing a flag burqa. At the protest Yohan played ‘Nadine Amouk’, a ‘spokesperson for French Muslims, transsexuals and patriots’. He says he meant to humor, not insult, and that he wanted to challenge the anti-burqa law and lumping together Islamists and Muslims.
