Carrying Corsica's "Head of the Moor" flag
To clarify the situation, relatives of the emergency workers are describing what was said on the evening of the incidents in the Emperor district in Ajaccio. When they tried to climb up into the truck, according to the same source the attackers said: "Filthy shit Corsicans, fuck off, this isn't your home!".
The "This is our home", shouted in chorus in the district by the demonstrators on Friday evening\, now takes on a different resonance. If the attack on the firefighters on 25 December triggered a sharp reaction from the residents of Ajaccio, it was also the remarks made by the attacks, and known to many of the participants, which set fire to the powder.Source
Protests are still ongoing in Corsica right now. Riot police have sealed off the district where the Mohammedans live to protect them. The crowd have now gathered in front of the local government building to demand a meeting with the prefect.
