France: Three Quarters Support Stripping Citizenship of Foreign Rioters; Undocumented Migrants Storm Pantheon Monument in Paris; No Excuses for the Burning of Paris

France: Three Quarters Support Stripping Citizenship of Foreign Rioters:
More than seven in ten people in France are in favour of stripping citizenship for foreigners who participated in the violent riots that broke out following the death of an Algerian teenager last month.
A survey conducted by French broadcaster CNews this week found that 73 per cent of the country would support removing French citizenship from dual nationals who took part in the recent spate of racially-inspired riots accross the country.
Although young people were less inclined to support the idea, the poll demonstrated a “wide cross-generational support”, according to the broadcaster, which reported that just 34 per cent of those under 35 opposed the idea of stripping citizenship from foreign rioters, while just 29 per cent of 35-49-year-olds were against the idea and only 22 per cent for those over 50.
Conservatives and right-wing populists were the most in favour of the measure, with 91 per cent of such voters backing the idea. However, somewhat surprisingly, a majority of voters of liberal and leftist parties, 56 per cent, supported depriving citizenship of foreign rioters.
The only political factions to see a majority oppose were those who supported the far-left La France Insoumise party of socialist Jean-Luc Mélenchon and the French Green Party (Europe Écologie les Verts), with 55 per cent and 52 per cent opposing, respectively. --->READ MORE HERE
Undocumented migrants storm Pantheon monument in Paris:
Hundreds of undocumented migrants calling themselves “black vests” stormed the Pantheon monument in central Paris on Friday demanding the right to remain in France.
Police on the scene told Reuters an estimated 200 to 300 protesters, mostly from West Africa, managed to get into the Left Bank mausoleum where national heroes including Voltaire and Victor Hugo are buried.
“We will remain here until the last one of us has been given documents,” a leaflet given out by an organizer read.
Young men were chanting “black vests” - a reference to the recent anti-government “yellow vest” protests - while marching around the monument, which is located in the heart of the capital’s Latin Quarter, an area popular with tourists.
About 50 to 60 riot police barricaded access to the site of the protest, which was taking place peacefully, and them out of the building in groups. --->READ MORE HERE
