Travel Advice

No Foreign & Commomwealth Office Britânico, referente a França:

Serious and violent disturbances, during which buildings and vehicles have been set on fire and missiles, including stones, petrol bombs and tear gas canisters thrown, continue to affect several Paris suburbs and a large number of other towns and cities throughout mainland France. In Paris, the violence has mainly affected the Seine-Saint-Denis area in the north east of the city but disturbances have also occurred other areas including the Val d’Oise, Yvelines, Hauts-de-Seine, Seine-et-Marne, Val-de-Marne, Essone, Evreux and Aulnay-sous-Bois. In one of the most serious incidents to date, shots, believed to have come from shotguns, were fired at police in the town of Grigny, south of Paris, injuring two policemen. If you need to visit or transit any of the affected areas you are advised to be extremely vigilant and to avoid any demonstrations which may be taking place in and around the area. You should also be aware that in the present circumstances disturbances could occur almost anywhere.


Não é Bagdad, não é New Orleans, é Paris mesmo...

[Update] Mais no Libération:

Reste que ces reportages sur les banlieues en feu, qui tournent en boucle sur la plupart des chaînes mondiales, portent un sacré coup à l'image de la douce France, première destination touristique mondiale avec 75 millions de visiteurs étrangers par an, dont la moitié à Paris. Les touristes peuvent continuer à venir en France «sans risque», assurait hier le ministre du Tourisme, Léon Bertrand. Après les Russes et les Américains ce week-end, les Japonais, les Australiens et les Britanniques ont mis hier en garde leurs compatriotes.


Sempre os mesmos. Mais preocupados com a imagem internacional de La France que com o problema real dos seus cidadãos, que têm o direito à protecção da sua propriedade e integridade física.
