Tolerant Europe is trying to change the course: French residents unhappy legalization of same-sex marriage and want to repeal the law
Despite the position of the politicians, not all EU citizens agree with the principles of tolerance. On Sunday in Paris he was held another rally against same-sex marriage. According to police the streets were more than 25 thousand people. Protest organizers called an even more impressive figure - 200 thousand.
This protest is not the first, as in 2013 after the introduction of the law on the legalization of gay marriage in such meetings participated to a million people. Why such a tolerant Europe did not listen to the opinion of its own citizens? Well, you take the side of the majority is not it is not fashionable and not democratic. But to support the minority, which, in fact, do not need any protection, nor any privileges - is always welcome.
"We hope that our voice will be heard by the candidates in the upcoming spring 2017 presidential election. Whatever it was, we do not intend to leave the force and will seek the abolition of the controversial law, "- said the leader of the protest movement Lyudovin de la Roscher.
But despite the large-scale protests, activists are unlikely to change anything. Government is not necessary to particularly listen to the people. This is because you do not XIX century, when the inhabitants of France overthrew kings and altered the political system. Now amorphous population of the EU is able to only walk through the streets with banners. IG militants staged the attack - held a rally, went home and rested. Legalize gay marriage - protested and went about their business, because we have democracy, we must listen to.
Given the passivity of the population, it becomes clear why the government supports the more active members of the LGBT community, who regularly organize parades, ending in unexpected ways. That is why the upcoming elections it is unlikely that it will change. Of the three most obvious candidates only Marine Le Pen tries on the role of a reformer (which can not she come). Nicolas Sarkozy and especially Alain Juppe to change the existing way of life will not be - a lot of trouble, and no one to evaluate (not vysluzhivat the gratitude of the people in actual fact).
It turns out that many thousands and even millions of rallies in a democratic European Union in the calculation will not be accepted today, and will not be accepted in the future. Especially if they are in the "Advanced Security", as it was Sunday.
