FRANCE: Hundreds Of Illegal African Able Bodied Male Migrants Stormed And Defile The Pantheon Church One Of The Most Sacred Places Houses Graves Of National Heroes. Disrepect Host Nation.

They don't have the right to DEMAND anything from anyone. France doesn't owe them shit. Most especially after they have defiled one of their monuments in their host nation. They're disrupting tourism that brings revenue to the country. Last month they disrupted a terminal at an airport in France. These ARE NOT PEACEFUL PROTESTS. This is so wrong. (emphasis mine)

Tourists were evacuated from a Paris landmark on Friday as hundreds of illegal immigrants stormed in demanding “papers”.

Hundreds of illegal immigrants surged into the Pantheon in central Paris on Friday, briefly occupying the vaunted memorial complex to demand talks with the prime minister on regularising their status, activists said.

Around 700 migrants and their supporters joined the demonstration, with some pushing into the historic complex at around midday on Friday, a member of the Chapelle Debout collective said.

Footage posted on Twitter from inside the building’s main dome showed hundreds of people waving papers in the air shouting “Black vests, black vests!” and “What do we want? Papers!”

The so-called “Black Vests” is a Paris-based migrant association that takes its name from the “yellow vest” anti-government protest movement.

As they went inside, tourists were evacuated from the Pantheon, which is the final resting place of France’s greatest non-military luminaries including the writers Voltaire, Victor Hugo and Emile Zola.

Outside, hundreds more were gathered under the watchful eyes of a heavy police presence.

In a statement, the Black Vest protesters said they wanted “papers and housing for everyone”, describing themselves as “the undocumented, the voiceless and the faceless of the French Republic”.

“We don’t want to negotiate with the interior minister and his officials any more, we want to talk to Prime Minister Edouard Philippe now!” they wrote.

They stayed there for several hours until they were calmly evacuated through a back entrance midafternoon, AFP correspondents said.

“All of the people who gained entry to the Pantheon have been evacuated,” Philippe tweeted early evening as a police source said 37 arrests had been made.


“France is a country based on the rule of law which means respect for the rules that apply to the right to remain, respect for public monuments and for the memory they represent,” he added.

Some leftist politicians came to the site to offer moral support to the migrants but Marine Le Pen, leader of the far-right National Rally, tweeted her indignation.

“It is UNACCEPTABLE to see protesting illegal aliens occupy, with wholesale impunity, this is the centre of the Republic,” Le Pen said. “Expulsion should be the immigrants’ future — that is the LAW,” she said.

“The Pantheon is a symbol of great men. Inside there are symbols representing the fight against slavery. We are fighting against modern-day slavery,” said Laurent, an activist from French rights group Droits Devant.

“Many people have been living without rights for years. We have done this to ask the prime minister for an exceptional regularisation. There has never been such a thing since (Francois) Mitterand took power (in 1981). It’s about time we had one.”

The “Black Vests” are known for staging headline-grabbing protests in support of illegal immigrants. In June, they briefly occupied the headquarters of the Paris-based Elior Group which works in contract catering and property.

And a month earlier, its activists occupied terminal 2F at the city’s Charles de Gaulle Airport against “Air France’s collaboration” in the deportation of illegal immigrants. 👇
