Marine Le Pen is an avid Holocaust denier and all-around horrible, hideous person.  Thus, I get that French mayor’s point when, upon realizing his town had overwhelmingly voted for her, said: “I feel like quitting now. I don’t want to devote my life to these assholes.”

That might be one of the most powerful political quotes of 2017.  

And so Marine Le Pen was beaten

I live in a neighbourhood with a majority of people of northern and western African descent.

Amongst the roars of joy I heard a woman.

She was shouting “We’re saved”, triumphant, ecstatic, relieved.

Yet I know tonight fascists will be coming down  on MOGAI peeps and PoCs, and get into fights with antifa. 

And I shudder at the thought that it could have been even worse.

“Our country will be sold to the great capital, but at least we’ll be alive and free to see it and be against it” is what the streets tell me.

But the violence is still here.

The injustice is still here.

And during his whole time as our President, we will remind Macron that he’s not here because we want him to be there. He’s here because we want to destroy him and everything he represents. The corruption of our state. The influence of US ultraliberalism. The tyranny of the 1%. We’ll be there every second to tell him that he can take his wishy-washy socialism in name only and shove it right up his arse, because we’re better than this.

We will fight for what is right. We will stand united, as a people of many colours. For freedom, equality, and solidarity.

On se retrouve aux législatives, tas de merde.

France becomes the first country to ban plastic plates and cutlery
The ban, to take effect in 2020, is part of a program aimed at making France a model for reducing environmental waste.

Another great step in the right direction to reduce single-use plastics and plastic pollution in the ocean!
