Jin Chunlei, press counselor with the Chinese embassy in France, told China Daily that the underlying cause of the demonstration is poor public order in French society, and "the most recent trigger is the Zhong Shaowu incident," Jin said.
On the night of June 1, when a group of local gangsters cornered and robbed some Chinese nationals who were leaving Chinatown Belleville after a wedding, Zhong grabbed a gun and wounded a gangster, reported Nouvelles D'Europe, a Chinese language daily newspaper in Europe.
Zhong, a Wenzhou businessman, was later taken away by police and is still under arrest, according to the newspaper.
Paris police said the problem was not Zhong shooting in self defense, but illegally possessing guns, the newspaper said.
Jin said embassy staff visited Zhong, and he has a lawyer.
March organizer Chen praised Zhong's bravery and said he has become a model for the overseas Chinese in France who are relatively indifferent to others' misfortunes - which does nothing to improve the situation.
"Chinese people are well known for their habit of taking lots of cash with them, taking bags of luxury brands, and they don't have enough awareness of self-defense," Chen said, adding that Chinese do not always stand up to help others who are being robbed like Zhong did.
Chen also criticized the French legal system, which has very mild punishment for robbery.
"Only a few days in prison and then they're out. Who would take it so seriously?"
After Chinese embassy officials spoke to French police on June 15, police promised to improve security by increasing patrols around Belleville and installing surveillance cameras in the block.

The French Chinese communities have it enough. They come out protesting persistent violent crimes against them.

To my naïve Chinese friends, would you imagine they will be supported by the ...


An overreaction by the police as usual I imagine.

However... can you imagine a scene where Westerners - let alone ANGLOS! *gasp* initiated a demonstration in China!?

Westerners are accused of being barbarians on some of the threads here for lying on a park bench.

Hypocrites.

verdane

I think you need to take into account the several murdered Chinese.

Plus raped and robbed.

This is not happening to foreigners in China.


And yes, we are guilty of everything.

We even fail to move out of the way when people want to walk through you.

QUOTE: SOme trouble broke out BETWEEN the demonstrators/protestors, with some picking the pockets of others.
They couldn't settle the issue on the spot and among themselves; they needed the Agents de surete to solve the case(s).

When will you EVER provide your sources.

When will you ever stop guessing and speculating like a four year old ?

This is NOT what the media agencies are reporting.

A bag was stole from a Chinese and the French police did nothing.

The very point of the peaceful till then demonstration.

PARIS — Paris police tear-gassed demonstrators from the city's Chinese community Sunday when a march to protest a spate of violent robberies descended into scuffles after a demonstrator's bag was stolen.

There are 2 sides in the Chinese community in Paris.
1- The first diaspora, from the 70s, who is very well assimilated and respectfull of the French laws.
2- The 10 years old Wenzhou connection.
Many Wenzhou refuse to learn French and to send their kids to French school. They obviously refuse to assimilate.
Despite this demonstration, I can affirm that the Wenzhou have a very bad reputation among the Chinese community because they display a bad image of China.
The Wenzhou own several illegal activities including laundering of money, prostitution or slavery of fellow women, gang fights against other minorities and illegal immigration's network.
And the demonstration is an open support to an armed wenzhou businessman... well...

Absolute rubbish as usual.

(But my post is stuck on the filter)     

Look up AFP press on the internet.

You never fail to disappoint.
