Bikini Protest in France just after a young French woman was brutally attacked by a gang of Islamist women for wearing a bikini in a public park in Reims.


Protesters have taken their outrage to social media after a 21-year-old French woman was brutally attacked by a gang of young Islamist women for wearing a bikini in a public park in the northern French city of Reims.

The woman, named as Angelique Sloss, was severely beaten last week by five women between the ages of 16 and 24, while she was sunbathing with two friends. All the attackers have since been arrested and are scheduled to appear in court in September.

Protesters wearing bikinis and swimsuits held a rally at the park, in the northern city of Reims, yesterday despite rain and cold winds.

Hundreds across France joined the campaign on Twitter, posting photos of themselves wearing swimsuits in public places.

Spectators have likened the campaign to the JeSuisCharlie Twitter campaign, following the Charlie Hebdo shootings in Paris in January.

The incident began when one of the Muslim women allegedly shouted at Sloss for acting “immorally” by wearing a swim suit in public, leading to speculation that the attack was religiously motivated. Sloss responded and the women began slapping and punching her. A passerby eventually broke up the attack.

Using the hashtag #JePorteMonMaillotAuParcLeo (I wear my swimsuit to Park Leo), the campaign was organized by an anti-racism organization called SOS Racisme. Women (and men) have taken pictures of themselves wearing swim suits in public parks and beaches and posted them on Twitter.

  • French police said the attackers came from housing estates with large Muslim populations.

  • Passersby managed to stop the assault, but Ms Sloss has been unable to go to work following the assault because of the ‘severe bruising’.

    This has sparked assumptions that the attack was religiously-motivated, and the incident is being held up by some right-wing observers as proof that radical Islamic ideas pose a threat to French values.

    The Mayor of Reims, Arnaud Robinet, said: ‘We have to be very careful not to jump to conclusions. All the same, I can understand why people have assumed that this attack had religious motives. If that turns out to be the case, it is a very serious incident.’

    One of the group is reported to have shouted at the woman for ‘immorally’ exposing so much flesh in public.

    The woman responded and the group attacked her, slapping and punching her.

    Protesters wearing bikinis and swim suits also held a demonstration in the park with hundreds more taking to express outrage and their solidary with Sloss on social media.

    Sculptures monumentales –avec notamment un squelette de T-Rex– ou reconstitutions d’œuvres connues telles que Le Penseur de Rodin et la Vénus de Milo, découvrez ci-dessous quelques-unes des constructions qui seront exposées.

    PARIS, May 4 — In the latest stop on a world tour, American artist Nathan Sawaya’s Lego sculptures will go on display at the Paris Expo Gallery from May 14.

    “The Art of the Brick” features over 100 of Sawaya’s remarkable sculptures, made from a total of over 1 million Lego bricks.

    Among the works on display, several are inspired by famous artistic masterpieces such as the Venus de Milo, Rodin’s “The Thinker” and Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.” Another is a 20-foot-long model of a T-rex skeleton, made with no less than 80,020 bricks.

    Other sculptures are pure products of the artist imagination. “Swimmer” is a female figure that appears to have been frozen in the middle of a freestyle stroke, half-submerged. “Yellow” is a man who opens his chest to release an outpouring of Lego bricks.

    First mounted in New York in 2007, the exhibition has attracted over 2 million visitors worldwide so far. The show was presented in several cities across Australia, Asia and Europe in 2014.
