Gun Attack on French Satirical Magazine: This Just In

A manhunt is underway in Paris, where earlier today three masked gunmen attacked the offices of French satirical magazine ‘Charlie Hebdo’. At least 12 people were killed, including the magazine’s editor and two police officers.

‘Charlie Hebdo’ has been the target of violent attacks in the past due to its satirization of the Prophet Muhammed. French President François Hollande said the country is in shock following what he described as “undoubtedly” a terrorist attack.

Militant French Eco-Activists Protest Deforestation: Fight for the Forest

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

Deep in the tranquil Forest of Sivens in the south of France, eco-militant activists and French riot police are fighting a violent battle in woodlands being cut down to make way for a dam, which will spell the end for 41 acres of trees.

The activists are armed with Molotov cocktails and gas canisters; the police are trying to protect workers as they clear the forest. The local council says that the dam will irrigate cornfields in the area, but the activists — and many locals — are against the destruction.

VICE News followed the fight for the forest alongside the group of activists that have previously been hostile to any media approaches.

In Part 2, VICE News heads to the Polisario-controlled liberated territories, an all but uninhabitable no man’s land littered with land mines from the 16-year war. On the way, we pass a Sahrawi protest near the Moroccan Wall — also known as the berm or the wall of shame — that separates the Polisario-controlled Free Zone from the Moroccan-occupied territories.

Once we reach the heart of the liberated territories, Polisario Commander Ahmed Salem shows off one of the many pieces of art he has created and placed in the desert. Then he has his soldiers demonstrate their desert guerrilla tactics.

Migrant Crisis in Calais: Britain’s Border War (Dispatch 1)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

Refugees from Afghanistan, Syria, Sudan, and Eritrea steadily descend on a migrant camp in the French coastal town of Calais. They hope to gain entry to the UK, just 21 miles away across the English Channel. But in May, French police destroyed their camp and told the migrants to go elsewhere. And so they moved… across the street. With the few tents and blankets they’re able to salvage, the refugees formed the Salam camp, which now holds about 400 people.

Every night, the migrants — many of whom have been forced to flee war and conflict in their home countries — attempt to sneak aboard trucks headed for Britain; eight migrants have already died this year while trying to make the journey. Inside Salam, things have gotten so bad that some occupants are hunger striking in an attempt to draw attention to their plight. But the French authorities do little to help, while the UK government turns a blind eye.

VICE News spent time in the Salam camp to find out why hundreds of displaced people are being allowed to live in squalor — and even die.

Nazi Hipsters? ‘Nipster’ Movement Spreading Across Germany

Source: http://rt.com/news/168680-nazi-hipsters-in-germany/

http://fedgeno.com/links/

https://www.facebook.com/global.paradigm.shift

The neo-Nazi movement has collided with the hipster subculture in Germany to form a group of youths wearing beards, trendy tote bags, and bandanas stitched with Nazi slogans. Media has dubbed the fiery mix of Nazi-hipsters “nipsters.”

The new recruits of the far-right movement have taken to YouTube, Tumblr, Instagram, and other social media, as the ‘hipsterfication’ of the neo-Nazi movement has gained more support among youths in Germany. However, they don’t own the term “nipster” on the web — there they have to share the name with Asian hipsters, fans of masculine breasts, and less prominent groups that identify with it.

However, the term in its revised meaning was offered in a fresh report by Rolling Stone magazine, which interviewed Patrick Schroeder from northeastern Bavaria, one of the faces of the Nazi hipster movement who hopes to give it a friendlier social and political face.

Schroeder conducts seminars showing neo-Nazis how they can dress less threateningly, saying that people from other subcultures, including hip-hop, should be able to join the Nazi movement.

“If the definition of the nipster is someone who can live in the mainstream,” Schroeder explained to Rolling Stone, “then I see it as the future of the movement.”

The ‘Nazi fashionistas’ want to be in style by wearing trendy Converses, skinny jeans, tote bags, and brightly colored glasses together with beards.

“There were a lot of jokes about the Nazi hipsters. They had a bag saying ‘Please don’t shove, I’ve got a yogurt in my bag” journalist John Riceburg told RT.

They also filmed a Harlem shake video with people in black balaclavas and Anonymous masks dancing on junked cars with signs reading “Have more sex with Nazis, unprotected.”

There is even a vegan Nazi cooking show where two chatty men wearing balaclavas show how to make various vegan dishes.

Riceburg explained that the Nazis have always tried to copy youth subcultures, giving the examples of skinheads who were originally “a kind of proletarian youth subculture” and eco-Nazis, or hippy-Nazis.

“They are trying to mainstream the Nazi and fascist ideas as being something which is acceptable,” Weyman Bennett, secretary of Unite Against Fascism, told RT. “We saw this in the 70s — the part of early punks wearing swastikas.”

From the early 70s to the 90s, the fascism movement has tried to “plug into the youth culture,” he added.

The Nazi movement has been gaining political support in Europe, Bennett said, pointing to the alarming trend and adding that for the first time since WWII, a Nazi organization has been elected to the EU parliament — referring to the French far-right party Front National headed by Marine Le Pen.

Signs – Osaris [Red Light Records]

Signs = Opsen Music + Primal Therapy + Le lutin

Bash Around demonstrates the quality that you would associate with Red Light, coupled with a strong sense of the future, and an approach dripping with sci-fi influences. Harsh, sliding samples sit on top of a storming, modulated beat, as the bass slides up to you, giving it to you full in the face. Elements of Optiv, BTK and classic Bad Company are easy to spot, but Bash Around certainly has enough of the young French crew to make it different, an d unique. A strong but subtle take on the sound, this one is set to be a fixture in the clubs.

Flip side Osaris is equally as big, just in a different way. A dryer, more insistent drum set sits underneath this one, with moving effects and some big, big synths. Less straight-up than its predecessor, it’s still all hands to the pump when this one drops. Forceful, funky and unforgiving, Signs lay out what they can do, and believe us, they can do it well.

War in the Central African Republic (Full Length)

Subscribe to VICE News here: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-VICE-News

The Central African Republic’s capital of Bangui has seen its Muslim population drop from 130,000 to under 1000 over the past few months. Over the past year, thousands across CAR have been killed and nearly a million have been displaced. The United Nations recently stated that the entire Western half of the country has now been cleansed of Muslims.

CAR has never fully recovered from France’s colonial rule, and it has only known ten years of a civilian government – from 1993 to 2003 – since achieving independence in 1960. Coup after coup, often with French military involvement, has led many to refer to the country as a phantom state. The current conflict has now completely erased the rule of law and order, and left the UN and international community looking confused and impotent.

In March 2013, the Séléka, a mostly Muslim rebel alliance, rose up and overthrew the corrupt government of François Bozizé, while bringing terror and chaos across the country – pillaging, killing and raping with impunity. In response, mostly Christian self-defense forces, called the anti-balaka, formed to defend CAR against Séléka attacks.

Clashes grew more frequent throughout 2013 as the Séléka grew more ruthless. In December 2013, French and African troops went in to disarm the Séléka and staunch the bloodshed. The anti-balaka, seizing on a weakened Séléka, then went on the offensive.

CAR had no real history of religious violence, and the current conflict is not based on any religious ideology. The fighting, however, turned increasingly sectarian in the fall of 2013, with revenge killings becoming the norm. And as the Séléka’s power waned, the anti-balaka fed their need for revenge by brutalizing Muslim civilians.

“Too few peacekeepers were deployed too late; the challenge of disarming the Séléka, containing the anti-balaka, and protecting the Muslim minority was underestimated,” Human Rights Watch said in a recent statement.

The bloodshed has not stopped. The UN is still debating whether or not to send peacekeepers. Even if a peacekeeping operation is approved, it will take six months for troops to be assembled.

War in the Central African Republic: Part 2/5 (Documentary)

Start from the beginning and watch part 1 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JwJEtTMUkzM&list=PLw613M86o5o49tFIS5fmyazINYSkbzV6_&src_vid=Em7w7WSwaMk&feature=iv&annotation_id=annotation_2360488599

The Central African Republic’s capital of Bangui has seen its Muslim population drop from 130,000 to under 1000 over the past few months. Over the past year, thousands across CAR have been killed and nearly a million have been displaced. The United Nations recently stated that the entire Western half of the country has now been cleansed of Muslims.

CAR has never fully recovered from France’s colonial rule, and it has only known ten years of a civilian government – from 1993 to 2003 – since achieving independence in 1960. Coup after coup, often with French military involvement, has led many to refer to the country as a phantom state. The current conflict has now completely erased the rule of law and order, and left the UN and international community looking confused and impotent.

In March 2013, the Séléka, a mostly Muslim rebel alliance, rose up and overthrew the corrupt government of François Bozizé, while bringing terror and chaos across the country – pillaging, killing and raping with impunity. In response, mostly Christian self-defense forces, called the anti-balaka, formed to defend CAR against Séléka attacks.

Clashes grew more frequent throughout 2013 as the Séléka grew more ruthless. In December 2013, French and African troops went in to disarm the Séléka and staunch the bloodshed. The anti-balaka, seizing on a weakened Séléka, then went on the offensive.

CAR had no real history of religious violence, and the current conflict is not based on any religious ideology. The fighting, however, turned increasingly sectarian in the fall of 2013, with revenge killings becoming the norm. And as the Séléka’s power waned, the anti-balaka fed their need for revenge by brutalizing Muslim civilians.

“Too few peacekeepers were deployed too late; the challenge of disarming the Séléka, containing the anti-balaka, and protecting the Muslim minority was underestimated,” Human Rights Watch said in a recent statement.

The bloodshed has not stopped. The UN is still debating whether or not to send peacekeepers. Even if a peacekeeping operation is approved, it will take six months for troops to be assembled.

As the UN debates deploying thousands more peacekeepers to the Central African Republic, rights groups have warned that ethnic cleansing of Muslims is already well underway. Last week, after the French government voted to further keep troops in the country, CAR President Catherine Samba-Panza voiced her approval for the continuing French mission.

Shortly after, French President Francois Hollande visited to show support.
