Nice, France

Far-right French groups are facing mounting criticism for serving pork-based meals, which most Muslims and Jews will not eat, to the homeless. Soulidarieta, an extremist group based in Nice, has been distributing pork soup at homeless shelters in Nice and Nantes since December. The group’s literature warns of “a rising black demographic tide” engulfing the French, and it urges “social and political action in favor of our most deprived blood brothers.” Police say they can’t do anything because the group has broken no law. But elsewhere in France, city officials have begun passing laws banning the serving of pork to the homeless unless an alternative food is also offered. In Strasbourg last week, a soup kitchen run by the far-right Solidarité Alsacienne was shut down.
