Cleanup[edit]

The article as it standbhwkcadjxms s right now has very little content on human rights in France (with info on France's government and economy instead), and the few comments on human rights are vague and lack details or sources. | Klaw Talk 20:59, 10 December 2005 (UTC)

See also links[edit]

It has been suggested that to include a link to Paris massacre of 1961 would be wong because: "perhaps we could just add links to events which are not so controversial in existence - this one is not a good example of human hights in France".

I think that such a link would be appropriate to include. The issue is perhaps controversial. It is a historical event though. There is not even a 'dispute' flag on the article in question.

What is better, for a more balanced NPOV on the article, would be to add other links as well. But to de-select one link when a list of "see also" is being built up seems wrong to me - this is very much a relevant link.

Perhaps it would be better to record the rationale for including the link here - on the articles talk page - so that when there is a list of links, then this one can be added without causing so much controversy as it would be one amongst many.

Thoughts ?--jrleighton 01:09, 25 March 2006 (UTC)

If I were you, I would be more concerned with the actual article rather than your new links section. I wonder if it was written by a non-anglophone. The past tense usage is very bizarre ; It speaks of France as if she were dead. Very strange... Maybe we should be working on this problem instead. –Aquarelle 07:11, 25 March 2006 (UTC)
I cannot see any reason to exclude the Paris massacre of 1961 article other than to maintain the article as a whitewash.Wuzzy 10:43, 27 March 2006 (UTC)
Agree wholeheartedly with Wuzzy. Jooler 05:25, 28 March 2006 (UTC)

Why pick one example? Would it not be historically more accurate to list some of the major violations of human rights which have blotted France's record since 1789, not just on the mainland but overseas? Failing that, one could start the list in 1958 with the current Fifth Republic.--Clifford Mill (talk) 13:32, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

This topic warrants its own article. If it's gotta be merged, merge to politics of France instead of government of France. — Instantnood 11:39, 16 April 2006 (UTC)

Keep it. This is important. Skinnyweed 22:54, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Keep . Many other countries have a "Human rights in <country>" article . It does not fit easily within another article. GameKeeper 15:50, 7 June 2006 (UTC)

Human trafficing[edit]

What's about ? I can only cite prostitution slavery and illegal adoptions of less developed countries children: nothing different from other developped countries. They where also problems with Romanian Gypsy children a few years before but this was quite marginal. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.244.104.122 (talk) 13:31, 3 March 2007 (UTC).

Minority Acculturation[edit]

" Promotion of a local language or culture has finally been allowed, but under severe restrictions which effectively make it difficult to publish, organize classes, or media broadcasts."


Is this for real or what ? This article seems to imply that having an official language is a discrimination. Most of the western states have an official languages. Even in the USA where there's no official languages, the majority of the states are officially "english only" (Alabama, Arizona, Kentucky, Wyoming...). Having several official languages is the best way to divide a country (Think about Belgium for instance...). And the fact there is one official language does not mean you have no right to learn others languages. In Brittany, where I live, some people are very fast to complain about "discrimination", but look : there is radios in breton, tv in breton (TV Breizh), there's even a bilingual (french-breton) private school and they complain of not being state-subsidized. creanbulle 19:45, 28 january 2007 (UTC)

You are right: that sentence is absurd and is best deleted. The whole section is weak and needs major editing because it ignores languages one hears every day in the street such as Arabic, Berber and English.--Clifford Mill (talk) 13:22, 25 August 2015 (UTC)
