More on the French Foreign Legion former leader arrested in Calais

This particular video company asked for an amount of money per minute that is impossible for me to pay and as the video starts with a strong insistence that the video belongs exclusively to them, I was not able to subtitle it properly. However Oz-Rita did do a timed translation so I will post the video and place the transcript with times below it.

Le Général PIQUEMAL arrêté à Calais /France.6 février 2016

00:00:45,000 –> 00:00:49,000
Vive la France

4
00:00:49,000 –> 00:00:53,000
Liberty, Equality, Fraternity

5
00:00:53,000 –> 00:00:57,000
On est chez nous / it’s our home

6
00:00:57,000 –> 00:01:01,000
this is our home

7
00:01:01,000 –> 00:01:05,000
on est chez nous

8
00:01:05,000 –> 00:01:09,000
General (unclear)

9
00:01:09,000 –> 00:01:13,000
10
00:01:13,000 –> 00:01:17,000
there are police everywhere…(unclear)

11
00:01:17,000 –> 00:01:21,000
Yes, that’s not normal, that’s for sure.

12
00:01:21,000 –> 00:01:26,000
It’s scandalous.

13
00:01:26,000 –> 00:01:30,000
Such a lamentable ban.

14
00:01:30,000 –> 00:01:34,000
There is no more France, the eternal France is truly dying.

15
00:01:34,000 –> 00:01:38,000
It’s catastrophic to see such things,

16
00:01:38,000 –> 00:01:42,000
that the French are padlocked like this in their own country.

17
00:01:42,000 –> 00:01:46,000
The decline, the decadence…

18
00:01:46,000 –> 00:01:50,000
of this Eternal France,

19
00:01:50,000 –> 00:01:54,000
I stand up…soldiers like us, we have served together

20
00:01:54,000 –> 00:01:58,000
and they behave like this.

21
00:01:58,000 –> 00:02:02,000
If there were someone in charge, I’d tell him what I think of this.

22
00:02:02,000 –> 00:02:07,000
It’s truly lamentable to get to this point

23
00:02:07,000 –> 00:02:11,000
(unclear)

24
00:02:11,000 –> 00:02:15,000
We are with you, our General.

25
00:02:15,000 –> 00:02:19,000
Mon general… dictatorship in power… no, France will survive…

26
00:02:19,000 –> 00:02:23,000
We will close ranks.

27
00:02:23,000 –> 00:02:27,000
We will stand up. Remain upright; this is how you write history; we will write history.

28
00:02:27,000 –> 00:02:31,000
It’s not finished; it’s just the start.
30
00:03:25,000 –> 00:03:29,000
When these soldiers hear the National Anthem,

31
00:03:29,000 –> 00:03:33,000
and they don’t stand to attention (garde a vous),

32
00:03:33,000 –> 00:03:37,000
this is truly shameful

33
00:03:37,000 –> 00:03:41,000
that you are not standing to attention when the Marseillaise is played.

34
00:03:41,000 –> 00:03:45,000
You should stand to attention and salute. And that is the General who tells you!

35
00:03:45,000 –> 00:03:49,000
It’s shameful, and you represent France;

36
00:03:49,000 –> 00:03:54,000
it’s worse than dictatorship.
38
00:04:18,000 –> 00:04:22,000
Mon general…mon general…
40
00:04:26,000 –> 00:04:30,000
mon general…

41
00:04:30,000 –> 00:04:35,000
Listen up, all of you, please.
43
00:04:43,000 –> 00:04:47,000
Journalists, stand aside, it’s the gendarmerie before you

44
00:04:47,000 –> 00:04:51,000
but it’s the gendarmerie (unclear)
46
00:04:59,000 –> 00:05:03,000
Dear comrades, dear patriots,

47
00:05:03,000 –> 00:05:07,000
Gendarmerie …silence…

48
00:05:07,000 –> 00:05:11,000
Yes, we will disperse, friends

49
00:05:11,000 –> 00:05:16,000
from the gendarmerie, because I think you are brothers in arms. I had

50
00:05:16,000 –> 00:05:20,000
the honour to serve France, like you, for 40 years.
52
00:05:24,000 –> 00:05:28,000
We must leave… Today I am

53
00:05:28,000 –> 00:05:32,000
scandalised by the behaviour of the security forces.

54
00:05:32,000 –> 00:05:36,000
Whatever orders you have received, there are things

55
00:05:36,000 –> 00:05:40,000
one respects, namely the National Anthem, the Marseillaise when it is sung.

56
00:05:40,000 –> 00:05:44,000
I would have liked to see you standing to attention, singing with us, but nobody opened their mouths,

57
00:05:44,000 –> 00:05:49,000
and this in France, the great France,

58
00:05:49,000 –> 00:05:53,000
eternal France that has been the beacon to the world. That is truly a decline, decadence.

59
00:05:53,000 –> 00:05:57,000
I regret that you have received these orders.

60
00:05:57,000 –> 00:06:01,000
I know that you are obliged to execute orders, but you are not obliged to behave like this

61
00:06:01,000 –> 00:06:05,000
on the ground, because today

62
00:06:05,000 –> 00:06:09,000
it was said that we are neither thugs nor scoundrels.

63
00:06:09,000 –> 00:06:13,000
That we were here to try, via the State, to solve the problem of the city of Calais,

64
00:06:13,000 –> 00:06:17,000
which is a Jungle, unacceptable under the rule of law.

65
00:06:17,000 –> 00:06:21,000
That you have been deployed here is one thing, but to make the charges you make, is another thing.

66
00:06:21,000 –> 00:06:25,000
And that’s what I expected of brothers in arms who are

67
00:06:25,000 –> 00:06:30,000
…the demonstration is …

68
00:06:30,000 –> 00:06:34,000
forbidden…period. No, it is illegal

69
00:06:34,000 –> 00:06:38,000
now (here?) you are outside of the law.
71
00:06:46,000 –> 00:06:50,000
don’t push guys…
73
00:07:06,000 –> 00:07:10,000
France will survive these cowardly acts by the security forces.
75
00:07:14,000 –> 00:07:19,000
Disperse …Mon General…shut up…
77
00:07:23,000 –> 00:07:27,000
(unclear)…we will use force
79
00:07:35,000 –> 00:07:39,000
(unclear)

80
00:07:39,000 –> 00:07:43,000
(if you don’t comply?) we will use force
82
00:08:00,000 –> 00:08:04,000
We must leave now.

83
00:08:04,000 –> 00:08:08,000
Indeed, yes…

84
00:08:08,000 –> 00:08:12,000
Owe would destroy what we have achieved; now people really have to let go.

85
00:08:12,000 –> 00:08:16,000
Those who are still on the ground need to leave. Dictatorship means that French citizens

86
00:08:16,000 –> 00:08:20,000
have hardly any freedom of speech any longer, are treated like a herd.

87
00:08:20,000 –> 00:08:24,000
whereas we are here to try and… grandeur of France…
89
00:08:29,000 –> 00:08:33,000
step back
91
00:08:49,000 –> 00:08:53,000
step back step back
93
00:09:22,000 –> 00:09:26,000
Don’t stay there…

95
00:09:55,000 –> 00:09:59,000
We continue?

96
00:09:59,000 –> 00:10:03,000
OK?

97
00:10:03,000 –> 00:10:07,000
The bus has left.

98
00:10:07,000 –> 00:10:11,000
(unclear)

99
00:10:11,000 –> 00:10:15,000
Go to the wagon…

100
00:10:15,000 –> 00:10:19,000
quick…

101
00:10:19,000 –> 00:10:23,000
(inaudible)
103
00:10:44,000 –> 00:10:48,000
Are you not ashamed?

104
00:10:48,000 –> 00:10:52,000
But aren’t you ashamed to do this?

105
00:10:52,000 –> 00:10:56,000
But it’s not acceptable.

106
00:10:56,000 –> 00:11:00,000
But he is a General! It’s not acceptable.

107
00:11:00,000 –> 00:11:04,000
You are unbelievable.

108
00:11:04,000 –> 00:11:08,000
It’s unbelievable

109
00:11:08,000 –> 00:11:12,000
But really, I…
111
00:11:21,000 –> 00:11:25,000
Do you realise… and that broad (sheila), she does this, too.

112
00:11:25,000 –> 00:11:29,000
She is proud of herself.

113
00:11:29,000 –> 00:11:33,000
They are worse than their (masters?)

114
00:11:33,000 –> 00:11:37,000
She is proud of herself.
116
00:11:41,000 –> 00:11:45,000
It’s unbelievable, but how can you do this.

117
00:11:45,000 –> 00:11:49,000
How can you do this, but hand in your resignation?

118
00:11:49,000 –> 00:11:53,000
Seize power… do something…

  1. just a quick correction. Listening again to the video :

    “113
    00:11:29,000 –> 00:11:33,000
    They are worse than their (masters?)”

    The French woman actually said: “elles sont pires que les mecs” which translates into;
    “they are worse than the guys” (males)

  2. Some excerpts from below link/blog RE: Calais jungle & recent PEGIDA protest. IMO a VERY interesting read you will not find in any mainstream media.

    “What follows is a transcript of Simone Héricourt’s oral account of the present situation in Calais, given on Sunday, February 7 in Rungis in front of a patriotic audience. She is an ordinary woman confronted with an extraordinary situation.”

    “Currently they number at 18 000 in what is called the Jungle. 18000. It is horrible. They’ve downright made a city within the city. They’ve got a discotheque, businesses, schools, hair-dressers… They even have… [pause] — I wouldn’t allow myself to say this, but I think you understand it concerns the needs of men. Of course. They’ve made streets. They’ve given names to these streets. They elected a mayor. [Audience expresses shock] Yes! The police cannot at all enter what they call the “Muslim neighborhood”. It’s forbidden.”

    . . .we can’t endure the unendurable, when we see riots taking place during the night, every day, constantly. They turn up in the center of the town, numbering 2000, 3000, 4000, all over the place. They smash cars with iron bars. They assault people, they even assault children. They rob and they rape. What we endure is unimaginable. They enter the homes of people, while people are at the dinner table, because they want to eat. They take what they want, sometimes they beat up the inhabitants. They steal what they want and smash what they can’t get. And when you defend yourself, the Police gets on your back [Audience expresses dismay]. Since a long time the Police refuses to register complaints.”

    “. . .Yesterday I participated in this demonstration. I was in the middle of it, with my husband, with my son, with friends. General Piquemal was there [Long round of applause]. After what I witnessed yesterday, I could not sleep, because I kept reviewing those scenes in my mind. The television, radio and newspapers haven’t said what happened there. We saw him get arrested and mistreated like a racaille [street thug]. The man is a French icon, he deserves the respect owed to his rank, and he got treated like a racaille. They manhandled him to the ground and a policeman placed his boot on his neck. We saw it happen, I promise as I stand before you. Then they picked him up and dragged him, his feet weren’t even touching the ground.”

  3. I have actually done the translation for that absolutely poignant video already. Just waiting for Vlad to get it finished. I’m sure you will see it posted here very soon.
