News Agencies – November 19, 2011

French far-right presidential candidate Marine Le Pen unveiled her vision to hundreds of cheering supporters, advocating again for an exit from the euro and tighter border controls. During a speech that lasted more than an hour, Le Pen hammered home the traditional promises of her Front National party: strengthening France, preserving family values, fighting immigration and rejecting globalization. Le Pen repeated that France should leave the euro before it falls apart.

Le Pen, who inherited the leadership of the Front National from her father Jean-Marie Le Pen, has said she wants to broaden appeal for her party, known for its anti-immigration, anti-Islam views.
