In France, vandals destroyed a Turkish butcher’s shop. It is reported by the Medyaturk portal.
In the suburbs of Nantes, unidentified persons attacked a Lokum store that sells halal products. They smashed shop windows, overturned objects inside, and inflicted racist and Islamophobic language on the walls and façade.
“France for the French!” – reads one of the inscriptions. Long live the pig, it says on the other wall. The vandals also wished death to the Turks and wrote that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is dead.
The owner of the shop, Kadir Bulut, said that such things have happened for the second time in the past three days. He also noticed the inscription L214 on the wall of the store, the name of the French organization for the protection of animal rights. They said that they have nothing to do with acts of vandalism, and stressed that most vegans are in favor of a peaceful solution of issues and are fighting not with individuals, but with the system as a whole.
