Lyon France cancels Christmas market because they can’t afford to secure it against Muslim attacks

Christmas Market Cancelled as Organisers Couldn’t Afford €20,000 Anti-Terror Barrier Bill

The Christmas market on la Croix-Rousse hill in Lyon, France, has been cancelled because organisers cannot afford the €20,000 security budget.

    Besides, celebrating Christmas is Islamophobic.

    I’m amazed the market organizers are on the hook for public safety.

    I expect that’s why every muslim country ends up a shithole with high brick walls “wonderful interiors”. If you have anything nice that’s visible it’s get wrecked.

    This smells fishy. £20K isn’t that much money to a city of 500,000. I’m sure most of the attendees would gladly kick in a couple of bucks to cover the cost or have a 50/50 draw or maybe a philanthropist would donate the money. There’s more to this than the headline leads us to believe.

      And I’m sure that picture wasn’t taken in Lyon. That building style is right out of Germany, and besides, there’s no dogshit on the street.

        French cops in the link’s photo at least.

          Maybe. I did a little googling and the store in the picture (L. Bullinger) is in Neuburg, Germany. I guess they could have a store in Lyon though.

    I am sure they could put together a volunteer security force if they tried.
