Front National

The Front National is a right-wing political party in France, often classed as racist on account of its alleged campaigning against immigrants. The party was founded by Jean-Marie Le Pen in 1972. It has a armed branch called Department of Protection-Security.

Front National has been elected into office in a few towns, which have typically been plagued by unemployment and tension between local people and immigrants. The party has tended to cut back on social services for immigrants as well as cultural activities deemed anti-family or multi-cultural.
