After the retaking of the Bastille on 18 March by a mass of 120,000 people, the Left Front struck another blow on Tuesday evening. Some 23,000 people attended presidential candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s meeting in Lille . 15,000 inside the packed-out Grand Palace, and 8,000 outside.

"The river has broken its banks and no matter what happens, the flood isn’t going to recede any time soon," announced the Left Front candidate to a sea of red flags chanting "Resistance! Resistance!"

"Getting the NF out of the limelight"

"The battle that excites me now is getting the National Front out of the limelight. If I’m in front of Marine le Pen, ours will be the first country in Europe to push back the far right," Mélenchon told the press in the cortège. He went on to welcome having "derailed the DE-demonization" of the National Front, and pointed to the failure of NF’s attempt to appropriate the dramas of Montauban and Toulouse for its own political purposes.

It would be a good thing to get the NF out of all light and the impetus to attack "the other", however defined, forever out of human experience. But that will not happen by wishing and hoping. It takes prolonged and concerted effort to do it.

That is true in France or any country, society or culture, as one from the USA can see it every day. Thanks Norm, if it takes a village, then maybe the answers lie in turning to our communities. Change comes from the bottom up, not top down. Only we can make things change.
