Surprising even for a government led by such a fascist beast as Manuel Valls. As the British conservative newspaper Daily Mail reports
France's Socialist government provoked outrage today by becoming the first in the world to ban protests against Israeli action in Palestine.
In what is viewed as an outrageous attack on democracy, Socialist Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said mass demonstrations planned for the weekend should be halted.
Mr Cazeneuve said there was a ‘threat to public order’, while opponents said he was ‘criminalising’ popular support of the Palestinian people.
Jews sans frontieres also mentions that this has been pushed by a fascist organization known as Jewish Defense League (LDJ by its French acronym but an international group), which has been actively attacking Internationalist protests against the genocide in Gaza.
