France 2019: A Record 1,457 Cars Burned on New Year’s Eve

The Torching of cars has always been a traditional New Year’s Eve pastime all over France you might think, if you depend on mainstream media for information. That is not the full story of course, nothing in manstream media these days is ever the full story.

France saw 1,457 vehicles set on fire across New Year’s Eve, surpassing the previous record of 1,290 vehicles torched across the country in the previous year, according to figures seen by French radio broadcaster Europe 1. What Europe1 and the print news media do not report is that most of these acts of vandalism take place in or near migrant ghettos.

This year’s figures  are 13 per cent higher than the number of recoded 2018, with French police allegedly attempting to keep the number of burned cars under secrecy so as not to “create an escalation of tensions”, Europe 1 reports. ‘An escalation of tensions,’ a giveaway phrase if ever there was one.

French authorities have tried to divert attention from this civil disobedience among migrant communities by claiming that the burnings over the New Year period in 2019 were substantially less serious than the previous year because, according to senior police officers, the number of violent incidents towards police decreased compared to 2018.

As in previous years, French authorities tried to maintain official silence on the car burning figures, and when the numbers were leaked to, and reported by Europe1, it was also revealed  that the Interior Ministry only count cars that were directly set on fire and not those that had received damage as a result of fires.

Previous year’s figures show that since a low point of 804 burned cars in 2016, the number has risen year on year with 2019’s figures higher than all other years since 2008.

While French government and law enforcement agencies adopt a “nothing to see here, move along, go to your homes and keep the peace” attitude, public reaction in some cities, such as Strasbourg where 220 cars were set on fire in what amounted to double the number of 2018, revealed that the problem of car burnings, along with general, year round lawlessness in migrant ghettos is an even bigger issue than ever issue for citizens, a fact that will be exploited by Marin’e Le Pen’s nationalist Rassemblement National Party at elections.

As well as car burnings, Strasbourg – the city where the European Parliament is hosted – also saw several incidents of firefighters being attacked with petrol bombs on New Year’s Eve after being ambushed by gang members, with Thierry Carbiener, president of the Departmental Fire and Rescue Service, describing the youths as “ultra-violent, in organised bands”.

“We are dealing with very mobile groups that light fires for the sole purpose of seeing the firefighters and the police arrive and confront them. We have reached a milestone: they no longer target vehicles but men. They act to hurt them,” he said.

A total of 400 people were arrested over New Year’s Eve in France and a 27-year-old man was killed as a result of an accident involving fireworks.
