The famous Christmas market on the Champs-Elysees is being cancelled. Located on the most famous avenue in Paris, the Champs-Elysées Christmas market attracts thousand of visitors each year. Charming wooden chalets line the entire stretch from Concorde to the Champs-Elysées roundabout, selling regional food specialities, decorations and toys. Myriad excuses are flying: “inferior food!” (I kid you not); the government says the market is “ultra inelegant”; the truckers/gypsies who are running the stalls are all infighting for control.
I am here to tell you it is fear of jihad. Another grand Western tradition destroyed by the hijrah. Music festivals, concerts, New Year’s celebrations, Christmas markets, popular folk fairs will fade from public life — the risks will be too great. And in their place, under the falsity of respect for Islam, will be Muslim rituals and traditions.

Christmas market removed in Paris: Monday, “there will be blockages, convoys” promises king of fairgrounds Marcel Campion DEBATE – The standoff continues between the authorities and the “king of fairground” Marcel Campion, who is protesting against the suppression of the Christmas market on the Champs-Elysees and the threat of “blockages” in Paris and around Monday. Will there be a market at Christmas? Things seem badly engaged as the standoff between the City of Paris, and Marcel Campion, representing fairgrounds, continues to harden. To the point that henceforth, the “king of fairgrounds” and unions of the sector threaten to “block” Paris from Monday, November 6, if their Christmas market, prohibited by the mayor of Paris, could not settle on the Champs-Elysées for the holidays. At the end of his interview on Saturday with the police chief, the fair manager confirmed the call for a “mobilization around Paris and Paris” on Monday. “I think there will be blockages, convoys,” he added, saying that “the fairground world is boiling”. “Monday, all the device will be blocked.It is a strike renewable: the showmen who can not come Monday will come Tuesday, and those who can not come Tuesday will come Wednesday,” said the president of Cid’Europe branch festivals, Eugène Coignoux. Arm wrestling since this summer Marcel Campion, who created the Christmas market in 2008 on the prestigious avenue of Paris, protests since this summer against the decision of the City not to renew this market. At the beginning of July, the Paris Council unanimously voted to end the Christmas market as it existed, noting the non-renewal of the occupation agreement for the public domain signed in 2015 with Marcel Campion’s SARL Loisirs Associés. , arriving at the end of its first two years. Fairgrounders still hope During the discussions with the city, “it has been said that the six years (of the contract, with renewal every two years, ed) will never be questioned.They have encouraged us to invest for six years,” said Marcel Campion recalled that the Christmas market meant 240 traders and 2000 jobs. Moreover, the “King of Fairgrounds” will however be able to install the Ferris Wheel, which he operates at the Concorde, after November 11. it will be inaugurated on the 17th with Jean-Paul Belmondo and Alain Delon “and many other friends, hoping that we will also inaugurate the Christmas market”. Beside that, for two years, the business of the promoter of Parisian fairgrounds and the Christmas market of the Champs-Elysées are in the crosshairs of justice. The investigators wonder in particular about an agreement granted to Marcel Campion in 2015 by the City of Paris to install his wheel on the prestigious location of the Place de la Concorde. The 77-year-old businessman was indicted on May 30 for harboring 75,000 euros in favoritism and misuse of corporate assets in his capacity as manager of the company operating the wheel of the Place de la Concorde.
