Hundreds march in Corsica after violent anti-Arab protests

Hundreds rally in Ajaccio on December 27, 2015, after France banned demonstrations in part of the Corsican capital following two days of anti-Arab protestsHundreds marched through poor areas of the capital Ajaccio on Saturday for a second straight day, shouting slogans such as “This is our home!” and “Arabs get out”. Corsica’s administrator Christophe Mirmand announced a ban on all protests and gatherings until at least January 4 in the poor Jardins de l’Empereur housing estate, the epicentre of the violence. “We aren’t thugs, we aren’t racists,” they cried as they marched to the police station and then through several low-income areas, before returning to the Jardins de l’Empereur estate where they were blocked by police.
