Nonwhite colonizers turned violent in several French towns overnight on 30 March when local election results handed control of twelve towns in France to the pro-French Front National (FN).
The nonwhite colonizers—mostly North Africans—attempted to physically attack FN candidates and supporters, with one police spokesman in Frejus, a Mediterranean town which elected a FN mayor, saying that “Demonstrators are trying to get at the Front representatives and starting fights.”
According to the official FN reaction to the results, as published in French on their website, the FN has taken control of 12 cities, and has gained representatives in a further 1546 local authorities.
According to Nicolas Bay, Deputy Secretary General of the National Front, Director of the municipal election campaign, the party was “facing two key challenges: conquer cities and achieve a territorial network of elected officials.
“At the end of the second round of voting, these two challenges were achieved as the Front National won in 12 cities: Beaucaire, Cogolin, Fréjus, Hayange, Henin-Beaumont, Le Luc, Le Pontet, Mantes-la-Ville, Marseille 7th sector and Villers-Cotterets Beziers and Camaret-sur-Aigues.
“The Front National has on this occasion demonstrated its ability to gather enough votes to win under a number of circumstances, such as in the absolute majority obtained in the first round in Henin-Beaumont, or in other two-, three- or four-party contests,” Bay continued.
“The local entrenchment of the FN in all regions of France is now a reality. Our movement has achieved representation in 597 municipalities with more than 1,000 inhabitants and is now present in almost half of the cities with over 10,000 inhabitants. In 328 municipalities, FN lists made it through to the second round of voting.
“Following these municipal elections, the FN now has, in cities of over 1000 inhabitants, 1546 and 459 councillors elected in the intercommunal structure,” he said. (Intercommunal authorities in France are federations of municipalities, or communes.)
These seats will, Bay continued, “allow the FN to systematically establish its presence in future regional and departmental governments” at the next elections in 2015.
“While voters have overwhelmingly rejected the Socialist Party and government policy, the European elections will allow us to gather together in France an alternative to ultra-liberal globalism, as defended by the UMPS- [conservatives and leftists] system and could allow the FN to be the leading party in the May elections,” Bay concluded, referring to the European Parliament elections scheduled for May 2014.
