Saudi King’s French Riviera summer holiday sparks protests

The face of wealth and greed of sicophantic aspirational corporate capitalists reveals itself in this ‘holiday’.
The spark of revolutions lies in the responses….
“Where will we end up if the rich and powerful have the right to not abide by the law, under the pretext that they spend money?” But others felt differently.

A rival petition went online Sunday, gathering some 100 signatures, calling for “support for the Saudis for obvious reasons of state security and for the economic benefits.”

Both reported elements of the petitions miss the point.

Veterans Today  head their article above, “The Screams of Bombing Victims Never Reach the the Cote d’ Azur”– they also report a critical element of the petition opposing this obscenity

‘Jean-Noel Falcou, who had launched the petition, said, “We cannot accept that there is one law for the rich and powerful and one law for everyone else.”

More to the point!

AFTERTHOUGHT: I wonder if Bronwyn Bishop is going under the rationale that she is assisting Australian /Arab relations in the public interest?
