Many people of French descent are profoundly shocked at President Macron’s decision to honour Marshal Pétain, who sent so many French citizens to their deaths in Nazi concentration camps.
On November 11, the European Union Youth Orchestra with their chief conductor Vasily Petrenko will mark the centenary of the end of World War 1 with a performance at the foot of the Arc de Triomphe.
The event has been organised by Emmanuel Macron.
We urge the conductor and members of the orchestra to show solidarity with the victims of Marshal Pétain by turning their backs on the collabrationist President Macron. Just for a minute – a gesture of solidarity with the dead French citizens he has shamed.
A bas, Macron!
