A new poll has found that more than three-quarters of French people don’t believe the official explanation behind the violence and unrest that occurred before the Champions League final last weekend.
As we previously highlighted, the final had to be delayed after people described as “local youths” stormed stadium security, vaulting fences and entering the ground without tickets as well as carrying out countless robberies and assaults on tourists visiting for the game who they saw as easy prey.
Most of the criminals were comprised of local migrant-background men who live in the ethnic suburb of Saint-Denis, where the Stade de France is located, which is home to a whopping 400,000 illegal immigrants, most of whom are from North Africa and the Middle East.
One victim described to CNews what happened to him during the chaos.
“They attacked me. There were hundreds of ‘youngsters,’ or men, they were all men… They attacked me, and took my four tickets. They had cost me €6,000, but it didn’t matter anymore, we were scared for ourselves and for our children… At the exit, it was even worse. There were even more assailants. They tried to steal my wife’s bag. The attackers were watching my children cry, and they were laughing. They found our fear amusing.”
However, despite eyewitness reports and footage clearly showing who the real culprits were, French Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin blamed the violence on British football fans who arrived without tickets.
A new poll shows the French public clearly don’t believe the official explanation.
An Odoxa Backbone Consulting poll conducted for Le Figaro found that 76 per cent of French people “were not convinced by Darmanin’s explanations.”
61 per cent of respondents thought the actual responsibility lay with blame “youths” from “troubled neighborhoods” in the area. Both terms are euphemisms for young, criminal-prone migrants and offspring of migrants from ethnic suburbs.
“Supporters of Reconquête are those who most disapprove of the interior minister’s explanations (88 percent), according to the poll. Supporters of France Unbowed (82 percent), the National Rally (77 percent), and the Greens (77 percent) follow behind,” reports ReMix News.
A majority of respondents also said they thought France was ill-prepared to host the 2024 Olympics and the Rugby World Cup, which will both be held at the Stade de France.
