French councils push pork in schools

Issue No. 2474

Chalon-sur-Saone council in southern France voted last week to ban schools from providing alternative meals for children who don’t eat pork. Anti-racists protested outside.

It is the latest of several councils led by Tory opposition party the Republicans or right wing independents to stop meals provided for decades mainly to Muslim and Jewish children.

This has long been a demand of the fascist National Front (FN), but Republican leader Nicolas Sarkozy took it up this year.
