VIDEO: French Illegal Immigrant Group, ‘Black Vests’, Storms Pantheon And Demands Citizenship
A group of African illegal immigrants in France, calling itself the “Black Vests”, has stormed the French Pantheon monument and refuse to leave until they are granted the “documents” required for them to permanently reside in the country.
After months of being rocked by the Yellow Vest movement, a new group calling itself the “Black Vests” is demanding citizenship for illegal immigrants from West Africa. Today they stormed the French Pantheon monument and are refusing to leave until everyone in the Black Vest movement is granted documents allowing them to stay in the country.
Police on the scene told Reuters an estimated 200 to 300 protesters, mostly from West Africa, managed to get into the Left Bank mausoleum where national heroes including Voltaire and Victor Hugo are buried.
“We will remain here until the last one of us has been given documents,” a leaflet given out by an organiser read.
Young men were chanting “black vests” – a reference to the recent anti-government “yellow vest” protests – while marching around the monument, which is located in the heart of the capital’s Latin Quarter, an area popular with tourists.
Populist leader Marine Le Pen, who lost to French President Emmanuel Macron in 2017 but saw her party receive a major victory in this year’s European Parliament elections, posted her horrified response to the protest on Twitter.
“It is inadmissible to see illegal immigrants claiming to occupy, with impunity, this high place of the Republic that is the“In France, the only future of an illegal immigrant should be deportation, because it is the law.”
Il est INADMISSIBLE de voir des clandestins revendicatifs occuper, en toute impunité, ce haut lieu de la République qu’est le #Panthéon.

It is believed this group is affiliated with the group of illegal immigrants who stormed a Parisian airport last month to protest deportations. That protest saw illegal immigrants chanting “France does not belong to the French,” and saw several flights cancelled as a result.
A large group of illegal African migrants stormed Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport Sunday in protest of France’s deportation laws.
“France does not belong to the French! Everyone has a right to be here!” one of the migrants reportedly yelled.
The protest was organized by an open borders group called Collectif La Chapelle Debout, which streamed the event live on its Facebook. The protestors referred to Air France as the “official deporter of the French state,” and demanded to speak with Edouard Philippe, French president Emmanuel Macron’s prime minister.
The country, led by globalist President Macron, continues to descend into violence in 2019 and provide a grim look into a possible future for the United States. Earlier this year, five French churches were attacked in a span of roughly 10 days.
