  • Description

    A BLOT ON THE 'GAY PARIS' OF THE TOURIST IS THE ALGERIAN SHANTY TOWN - A SPRAWLING CONGLOMERATION OF SQUALOR IN THE NORTH-EAST SUBURBS OF NANTERRE AND COLOMBES.

    SOME 125,000 ALGERIAN MOSLEMS LIVE IN THE PARIS REGION - MANY OF THEM LIVE IN THE SHANTY TOWN. THOSE WITH WORK SEND SOME EARNINGS BACK TO THEIR FAMILIES IN ALGERIA. MANY ARE HARD-WORKING FRENCH CITIZENS. MANY OTHERS ARE INDOLENT. BUT ALL PAY A TAX - VOLUNTARY OR IMPOSED - BY THE FLN, THE ALGERIAN NATIONALIST MOVEMENT FOR INDEPENDENCE.

    TODAY THEIR FUTURE IS PRECARIOUS. THE QUESTION IS WHEN ALGERIA OF THE FLN BECOMES INDEPENDENT, WILL EXTREME ACTION LEAD TO THE REMOVAL OF FRENCH CITIZENS FROM ALGERIA - AND THE RIPOST BY FRANCE: THE REMOVAL OF ALGERIANS FROM FRANCE. A FORETASTE CAME LAST MONTH: WHEN 30,000 ALGERIANS SWARMED FROM THE SHANTY TOWNS IN A GIANT FLN-INSPIRED DEMONSTRATION INTO PARIS, SEVERAL HUNDRED WERE IMMEDIATELY DEPORTED AMONG 12,000 ARRESTED.
