French soccer fans sing their defiance in the face of terror

Jean Jullien's "Peace for Paris" from Banksy via You Might Notice a Trend.

In the wake of the Charlie Hebdo shooting rampage, I reacted by posting Musical responses to terror, updated.  In the wake of yesterday's coordinated terror attack in Paris, I'll let the French themselves give their own musical reply to the Sith Jihad* via the New York Times: Soccer Fans Sing ‘La Marseillaise’ .

Soccer fans responded to a series of explosions and shootings in Paris by singing the French national anthem as they were evacuated from the stadium.
Vive la France!

*That's right, as Reuters via The Huffington Post reported today "Islamic State Claims Responsibility For Deadly Paris Attacks."  First the Russians, now the French.  Keep making enemies by the boatloads, assholes.  As Infidel753 quoted Comrade Misfit today: "Other than the Americans, there aren't many nations capable of projecting military force at a considerable distance beyond their own borders. The terrorists have, in the last two weeks, seriously pissed off two of them."


  1. Actually, it's not Banksy. He merely shared a tweet of it. The artist is Jean Jullien. My bad. I updated my page info.

    1. Thanks for the correction. The description is now "Jean Jullien's 'Peace for Paris' from Banksy" by way of you.
