The French far right stands as "savior" to the crisis

Paris .- The president of the far-right National Front (FN), Marine Le Pen, ran today as an alternative to the 2012 presidential elections in the ultra-nationalist parade of May 1 in France, where he made a speech based on the recovery of freedom and emulating the historical image of Joan of Arc, a symbol of the struggle for social justice in France.

"Millions of French people turn to us asking us to save them from servitude, breaks his chains, liberate them," cried the newly elected leader of the movement before thousands of supporters gathered in Paris. Parade known as Joan of Arc, the concentration traditionally brings together the French right-wing forces, coinciding with the celebration of Labor Day organized by unions and leftist parties.

Le Pen, who appears in several polls as the second most voted in the presidential elections of 2012, said that "in a year France will abandon its own spring and darkness," referring to the liberation movements in Arab countries. Subsequently, the ultranationalist leader defended some of the principles of his party, leaving France as the euro, the fight against immigration or economic protectionism.

Particularly harsh were his words against Europe, "depriving France of its legislative freedom, legal, monetary, budgetary, and that makes the French people in their slave." "The euro zone is completely isolated from the rest of the world is an absurd policy, suicidal," he said. Given the drift, Le Pen, who at one point the speech was accompanied by her father, defended the traditional values of France and embraced a decidedly nationalist discourse.

"To be male or female, heterosexual or homosexual, Christian, Jew, Muslim or non-believer, first of all you have to be French," he exclaimed to the delight of the 20,000 attendees, according to the FN, and 3,200, according to police .
