Citizens!

An interesting case study which is happening in France. As you may know, the French government decided to reinforce its expulsion policy. Last Wednesday, about 150 people were thrown away from “barre Balzac” @ La Courneuve. The first press releases mention that everything went ok. But associations started seeding videos on dailymotion to show what really happens, which is now broadcast on TV.

Interesting to see that in this image war, stakeholders can directly influence mass media. Therefore opinion.

It’s also highly interesting to check that “La Courneuve” is a topic pretty followed, and that anytime a mix of “expulsion / nation / suburb” topic emerge, La Courneuve can be an amplifier.

Sad symbol to associate it to only sad issues.
