    French ministry appeals against pork soup ruling


    Friday Jan 5 06:31 AEDT
    The French Interior Ministry has appealed against a court ruling which allowed an organisation with far-right links to continue to offer pork soup to the homeless, Paris police said on Thursday.
    Police had banned the soup kitchen last month, arguing that the handouts discriminated against Jews and Muslims who do not eat pork on religious grounds, but saw the ban overturned by an administrative court on Tuesday.
    "The Interior Ministry has on Thursday appealed the tribunal's decision before the Council of State (France's highest administrative court) which will examine the appeal on Friday," a Paris police source told Reuters.
    The administrative court which ruled on Tuesday had said that the distribution was "clearly discriminatory" but that it could not be stopped because the organisers offered to feed anyone who asked for help.
    It also said in a statement on Thursday that only the risk of public disturbances would allow the authorities to impose a ban.
    The food handouts are organised by a nationalist group called Solidarity of the French (SDF). It says its "pig soup", which uses pork fat for stock, is country fare much loved by French traditionalists.

    The allies made a big mistake after WW2, they should have let Germnay keep France, that would have been fit punishment for the Germans for starting the war.

    I would think a private charitable organisation can offer the food they want to to people.
    I am amazed it even went to court.

    But then, the frogs banned headscarves in schools, equally bizzare.
