20,000 overseas ethnic Chinese demonstrate in Paris protesting violent robberies
On the 20th, over 20,000 overseas ethnic Chinese organized a massive “anti-violence, demand public security” demonstration, protesting Paris’s poor public security situation as well as the long-term violence and robbery targeting overseas ethnic Chinese. Cases of Chinese tourists being robbed in Paris have happened time and time again, with even the vice-chairperson Uyunqimg of China’s National People’s Congress Standing Committee having also been previously robbed during a visit to Paris.

Why do they rob you? Because you are weak. Beat them up. The place I live is bad. At night when exiting the subway station, I’ve run into Middle Eastern robbers so many times. Every time you must fight them, and give them a few extra hits. Now when I go home, that group of people don’t bother me for money anymore. Actually, the robberies abroad in each neighborhood are always by the same few people. The more tough/vicious you are, they will naturally leave you alone and go bother other people. Foreigners and Chinese robbers are not the same, they really just bully the weak and fear the strong while Chinese robbers will rob your money and then stab you a few times anyway…
My schoolmate in France sought out the [Chinese] embassy’s help after experiencing many attacks and then actually being arrested by French police for self-defense but the embassy just took a conciliatory [deal with it, don’t make trouble, not important enough] attitude, so [my schoolmate] could only just bitterly accept what happened…
Chinese people need to buy less luxury goods, use less Big Mao [high denomination] cash, and show off less.
I was a participant in the Belleville France demonstrations. There were far more than just 20,000 people, at least over 50,000 people.
Want safety? Return to the motherland!
Yeah, if France is so bad, why don’t you guys come back? Come back and everything will be harmonious! Hehe.
Overseas Chinese can only unite and protect themselves. Don’t expect anything from the embassy. These GP always just tell you to obey the law [be unhelpful].
I heard about this news when driving this morning, that they even specifically target Chinese nationals for robbery, those bastards. Also, [France’s reaction] is really inexcusable, simply allowing them to rob Chinese, not even trying to stop them, simply letting them go after arresting them. No wonder they are so savage…Chinese need to unite to fight back…
Get lost, don’t ever come back. There you can still demonstrate. If you come back, your house will be destroyed, then they’ll beat you, and you’ll spend N years appealing to higher authorities until you die and have no place to be buried.
I’m a soldier who just left the military, and I think Chinese people need to be stronger. Don’t be a weakling. What is there to be afraid of? There is the People’s Army.
If they don’t like it, let’s have a third world war.
Us Chinese people have always been stupid cunts, a despicable people, so it is normal to be robbed abroad.
Not only do we not fight back when getting robbed, we even help them count the money.
I never trust the Chinese people abroad. Even if it is asking for directions, I’d rather ask a Middle Easterner than a Chinese person.
Without tough diplomatic sanctions, this is simply of no use.
Seeing Chinese people unify together, I’m truly moved. Chinese people in any country are facing the same experience, not just France. Everyone unite!
Yes, Chinese people should get the respect they deserve and not just Chinese but also every other race. Public security must be restored. The Chinese in France have only done something they should do. When you have endured so much that you cannot endure any long, there is no need to endure further…
They deserve it. How many Chinese people abroad are actually good people? They’re all basically relatives of corrupt officials.
We [in China] should rob any French people we see!
