Fights in Lyon about monument
Troubles in Lyon, where a new monument is to be unveiled this week. It should commemorate the genocide on Armenians by the Turkish long time ago. That's ridiculous, claim the French Turkish people, who deny this genocide ever happened.
But not only the Turkish are angry. So is the opposition in the city council, according to Libération. They say it's blasfemous to build a new monument at the place Antonin-Poncet, in the heart of old Lyon which is called out world cultural heritage. People living in the neighbourhood are against, too. They just say the new, modern monument is just very, very ugly.
