Nîmes: Muslims Threaten Market Vendors Who Sell Wine, Pork and Light Clothing
by Cheradenine Zakalwe
[Last week,]...in the market of Chemin Bas d'Avignon in Nîmes, Muslims threatened wine sellers, a butcher who sells pork and a pork butcher, as well as vendors who sell "light clothing", and banned them from coming back on pain of death.
Already, a few months ago, a pork butcher disappeared from one day to the next, even though he had a good clientèle. No one understood why, according to a resident of the district.
In June, the market's commercial arcade was totally burned, and the inhabitants of the district created a collective to complain about the rise in violence from young Muslims, without anything effective having been done about it by the local government.
