France Makes Major Shift Toward Fascism in Wake of Paris Terror Attacks

(TRUTHINMEDIA) Paris, France — Ahead of planned United Nations climate talks, the French government is utilizing emergency laws put in place after November’s Paris terror attack to hold climate activists under house arrest.

Immediately after the November terror attacks, the French government declared a state of emergency based on a rarely used 1955 law that allows the state to conduct warrant-less searches of private property, impose curfews, restrict public gatherings and movements of people, confiscate weapons at will and take over the press.

Legal activist Joel Domenjoud said he had been served with a restraining order describing him as a “principal leader of the ultra-left movement,” a title he disputes, only a couple hours after a judge refused to hear an appeal against the ban on the climate demo Domenjoud had petitioned for. A neighbor informed Domenjoud that a swarm of police were lined up the stairs waiting for him to arrive home.

“I feel angry about it because I think they made a big mistake,” Domenjoud said. “They weren’t looking for people like us activists — or if they were, it shows that they can target people for no reason at all and our civil liberties are in danger.”

On Saturday, Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve confirmed that the French government had used the recently enacted emergency laws to place at least 24 Greenpeace activists under house arrest.

Cazeneuve claimed the activists are suspected of planning violent protests at the talks which kicked off on Sunday — a day ahead of the opening ceremony  and is scheduled to run through December 11.

“These 24 people have been placed under house arrest because they have been violent during demonstrations in the past and because they have said they would not respect the state of emergency,” said Cazeneuve.

Meanwhile, Greenpeace France director Jean-François Julliard says the activists under house arrest had never committed violent acts, nor had they ever been charged with anything.

“We have the feeling that [the government] wants to stifle criticism from the militants, but they are going about it in the worst possible way, this is repression,” Julliard said on BFM television.

Several sources claim that officers have also raided three squats in Paris — and more across the country — seizing computers, documents and personal items.

Regardless of the threat of house arrest, some climate protesters still took to the streets.

According to the Interior Ministry, more than 300 people have been placed on house arrest since the declaration of a state of emergency just over two weeks ago.

  1. The fact that so many people in the world choose to neglect this is very, very bad. Good job for keeping us updated on this side of the media.

  2. Invading people's privacy? Stifling protests and those associated with them before any crime has been committed? Hmm … sounds familiar. France, don't go there! You've been such an example of humanism in so many ways.

  4. Joshua Michael Bendarowicz We can hark back to many country's war crimes. Terrible, all of them. I'm in the US. People in Vietnam never blamed me for the war when I was there. I'm talking about governmental fear-based crimes against the people's human and universal rights to privacy, freedom of movement, and such. France has been a good leader in healthcare, labor laws that include decent hours and time off (for many jobs), and such.

  13. Declaring a state of emergency in the wake of terror attacks is expected, it does not make a government fascist all of a sudden, it's such a stupid judgement to make. Fascism is a authoritarian way of government people by default with very strong nationalism. The reason for France's increasing of state power is justified by the current security situation in France, they've not just randomly increased power for nationalistic or a ideological reason. Can't believe these kind of articles exist.

  14. Reggina I choose to negelect this cause it is stupid and wrong. France calling a state of emergency for security reasons does not make it fascist. Fascism is where the government gives itself enormous amounts of power without a justified reason, Hitler for example, because he was German nationalist and wanted to impose his ideology on the German people via the abuse of state power – that is fascism. You should keep away from these dangerous articles which very poorly written and extremely misguided and delusional.

  15. As I stated in a prior post on a similar article; by no means do I wish to diminish the deaths of the innocent, but… With the absolute fascist clampdown on anyone and anything even hinting at opposition to the climate talks, one must seriously reconsider the precarious timings of the Paris attacks. In what way at all do those wishing to peacefully protest their opposition to the foot dragging of world leaders to address meaningful climate change measures with terrorist threats? And as I also stated prior; with the damning revelation that many in the G20 actively finance ISIS, it makes the precarious timing of the attack much more suspect.

  16. Amit Mistry so do you think it's OK to put peaceful activists on house arrest for made up reasons?

  17. Amit Mistry Right, but even fascist states justify their abusive powers; Hitler imposed his after claiming Germany was under attack from their own 'enemy within', the communists and the Jews.

  21. This is the right thing to do. Maybe they will weed out the nut jobs who are coming into France or even the ones who live there still

  22. You guys are illogical, anyone who disagrees with you is a troll. How can you be so narrow minded? Please, tell me how I'm a troll.

    So you all think France should not take any extreme security measures given the recent terrorist attacks? The state is extending its power in the name of security, not just oppress people deliberately. Yes they are using excessive are power BUT there is a reason – to try and end a very real threat to French people

    Duane you need to understand the difference; nazis tried to justify their power but couldn't, cause they had not reason to act they way they did. The French govt has a very valid reason and it's a simple one; to minimise the terror threat and to ensure maximum safety by ensuing there. They are scared or their people and are not willing to take risks, how can you not empathise with that?

  23. Andrew Larson wake up and at least make some effort to see what it actually going on. No I don't think it's ok to hold peaceful protesters on house arrest for no reason, but your entire premise is flawed were you say "made up reasons"

    If this state of emergency means dangerous individuals associated with ISIL/Daesh are found, it means a fewer deaths and events like the recent ones. It is a necessary evil to save future lives, it is beyond me how you cannot see that.

  24. Yes, we are being MANIPULATED by those above who do not want the Climate Talks to change anything to their agendas of power and money (petrol=money, care for climate=less petrol=less money)

  25. Sartaj A Raja and you think that is not justified under a country with and increasing terror threat?

    Ok great my comment gave you a chuckle, I don't find what is happening in France funny at all, the government is scared for its people and so it has extended its powers in hope it will help them find dangerous individuals and minimise the terror threat, it is necessary evil and if it saves lives by reducing the terror threat then what is wrong with it?

  26. Amit Mistry Dump fuck. If France (and other countries) don't want terrorist attacks then stop the freakin bombin of innocent people in the middle east. But they don't so the next logical thought is that France wants these terrorist attacks to happen so they can "justify" the use of these excessive meassures.

  27. Nick Haha you moron, France didn't bomb anyone before the terror attacks, it was a response to the recent France bombings you idiot, get your facts straight. So that kind of debunks you're dead-brain conspiracy theory that France wanted these attacks to happen so they can create a fascist state, when there never were airstrikes untill after the attacks. Please don't breed you blithering idiot.

  31. James Daltrey I just feel sorry for you. You just carry on turning your ignorant, pathetic, half-wit face away from reality and continue with your delusions, go educate youself. Can you explain a) why I am a troll and b) how am I a true terrorist. Very insulting and rude.

    There honestly is no hope for fucking idiots like you, no point even debating, carry on living under a rock for the rest of your life.

  32. Amit Mistry Of course, the government should do everything they can to keep their people safe – but that does not include arresting people who are completely unconnected with any kind of extremism. As soon as you have the government going above the rule of law and deciding who is innocent and who is guilty, you have a big problem.

    Moreover, if the government of France is scared for it's people, it should stop flooding the Middle East with weapons. The latest deal with S. Arabia was for $12 billion.

  33. Joe Canti finally someone who is not a complete idiot, I appreciate your sensible comment. I agree with you that there is a blurring of the line between innocent a guity, but whole purpose of this is to find as many extremists as possible and as quickly as possible to prevent future attacks. Every country has an emergency protocol in which state power can be amplified over the rule of law for the greater good. In this case to prevent future deaths and suffering, if they find potential terroists now, they who knows how many attacks will have been prevented.

    This is about long term safety, better to be arrested or have you house raided than be caught in a terroist bombing or shooting, no?

  34. Amit Mistry Yes. Taking away Civil Liberty's in the name of "Security"…….Let me frank. I call a duck a duck, and this is certainly a duck. IF that does not describe fascism than I do not know what does.There is a difference between protection your population and indoctrination.

Took me 10 seconds to find this http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/sep/19/france-bombs-isis-depot-iraq-islamic-state . Now go stand in line with the rest of the sheeple and wait to be chipped.

  38. Amit Mistry, I'm sorry but you are wrong. You talk of "eyes open – educate yourself and perpetuating evil for the greater good" then heed your own words. Terrorism is winning as the West support and fund their own creation, whilst systematically rounding up and placing under arrest Greenpeace activists. Terrorism wins as failing right-wing governments strip away civil liberties and human rights under the guise of protecting its citizens. Here in Australia, the same thing is happening, large tranches of draconian terror laws have been passed by both houses over the last two years, this country now has legal mass surveillance laws, cctv has been installed everywhere, from major cities to regional towns. All digital communications are now monitored and telcos required to hold all metadata for 2 years.

    Real terrorists DO NOT use digital communications. The deaths of the Paris innocents, like many around the world over the last 14 years, i would suggest are 'false flags'

    Western governments are mostly, part of the bigger agenda. There has been a corporate coup of governments around the world. TTIP – TPP and other agreements will solidify this. All these actors in Syria are there for the same reason. Gas and oil pipelines through the middle east into europe. The crashing of the Russian economy and its currency as Mr Putin refuses to play their game. The collusion of the US and the house of Saud to flood the world with cheap oil months ago is still playing out. But….Putin has outplayed them each time. Accepting or buying with US$ only gold for resources has been a spectacular move, as Russia has known as has China, central banks have artificially suppressed its value.

    There is a bigger picture here. We supply tonnes of weopons and supplys, untold billions in armaments to the middle east, we bomb the fuck out of functioning societys (many not ideally our political flavor) and leave them in ruins. Millions flee, then we close borders?? This is all theatre, the battle for a new world order is under way. BRICS is a threat to world bank IMF and other elitist controls. It's time to get off the lounge and open the eyes…..or roll over and accept enslavement…..French government is crooked and has embraced fascism, there is NO doubt.

  39. This was all staged. We must all act together to find those responsible and bring them to a new kind of justice, no matter what the act, expose the truth. And then there's the 355th mass shooting in the U.S. today to toss up another distraction. The shooters get away in a dark SUV…sound familiar?

  40. Fascism is a merger of state and corporate power. The US has gone full blown fascist. Fascism likely existed in France long prior to the attacks or the state of emergency

  44. My thoughts exactly. We already know that greenpeace and friends of the earth are banned from the cop21 talks, whilst exxon, shell et al are welcomed, or even sponsoring the event. It appears that most world leaders don't want action on climate change, they want TTIP, TPP, factory farming, dirty power etc. They are not on our side. Time to revolt…

  47. Boiling frog syndrome. Look at the executive branches all over the world using any excuse to expand their power, eroding the divisions of state and rolling back civil rights. USA, Spain, UK, Denmark, France.. But our leaders, they are the good guys right? And more power to them means they can do a better job! Trust us!

    Do you think these laws and principles are there for no reason? Do you think people didn't have to fight to get them? Protecting Freedom and Democracy.. Why are they doing the exact opposite? You think people are so enlightened now the mistakes of the past can never happen again? Politicians hardly agree on anything but when it comes to WAR, abroad or at home, the legislation is enacted in days! Who wants this? Who benefits? Would you have voted for it? Would you be willing to pay for it? Representatives of whom?

    "Administrative detention", "unlawful combatant", "terrorist". Labels they can put on anyone they see fit to deny them their rights and due process. Sure they bomb some rocks in the middle-east but ISIS or whomever is no threat to their power. Only people here at home can take them down. With rising inequality and increasing ability of people to understand and organize they know what is coming.
    Fear is their weapon, the ultimate instinct. Bypassing reason and good for ratings!
    They sell simple answers and security they can never provide. And you pay for it with your freedom and rights.

    People are more and more fed up with a system setup by the few for the few. Tired of Austerity, of privatized gains and socialized losses.
    But they spent a long time getting where they are now, where money and business rule. For a long time the propaganda worked, and it's still working, but the cracks are starting to show. When the fight really starts their institutions of power will be ready..

    "War on terror" is a fascist coup in slow motion

  49. dont worry guys after the great depression of the llate 20's early thirties. jobs started to come but the axis powers started to mobilise. just as now. then there was a world wor. so who is now rattling their sabres? isis (muslim) china expansionism into the void. Russia power brokering.? that lasted for 6 years and the cold war continued before there was peace. What i am saying is the there is a precedent for the clamp down on freedoms with surely much hardship to follow, so chose your side carefully this may be the last chance of real freedom.
