Front National / United Kingdom

Marine Le Pen Decried at Cambridge

According to The Guardian, “Her appearance led the group Unite Against Fascism to organise a demonstration of about 200 people outside the venue. Officers from Cambridgeshire police attended.”

The protesters brandished signs like “F comme fascisme, N comme nazi, à bas le Front national” (F like fascism, N like Nazi, down with the Front National), according to Agence France Presse.

The president of the French National spoke in French about her “political thoughts on France, Europe and the world” in front of some 300 young members of the Cambridge Union Society, a student group at the prestigious English university, according to AFP. “I have campaigned for Europe to exit Schengen, stop immigration and prepare itself for a return to the national currencies,” before adding the need for a “strong state” in a France weakened, according to her, by the European Union.”
