Afghani refugees ignored in Paris –
*Ibrahim (21) and Shabab (22) confront the cold winter of Paris living in the Place de la Republic
Place de la Republic in Paris is a symbol of “living together” for the French especially after recent terror attacks that claimed more than 130 lives, yet for 400 Afghani refugees it has become home.
The Afghanis refugees most who have travelled for more than two years to reach Paris feel ignored and abandoned by the French government. They say they have been displaced from their homeland now they feel displaced in their adopted home, which is currently Place de la Republic.
Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo has promised to assist the Afghani refugees but as the weeks roll on nothing has been done.
“We can’t go back, they will kill us. Islam does not ask people to kill, bit these murderers amongst the Taliban and ISIS kill everyone” Khanagul concluded.
The Afghanis are given two month permit to live in Paris.
