As France’s Towns Wither, Fears of a Decline in “Frenchness”
Wednesday 1 March 2017
Albi, France — The paint is fading, but the word is still clear: Alimentation, “Groceries.” It seems like a stage prop, grafted above the window of the empty old storefront. Opposite stands a tattoo parlor. Nobody enters or leaves. The street is deserted.
Metropolitics needs your help more than ever! Our journal, launched 10 years ago, will be forced to close in the next few months if we do not manage to raise €20,000 ($25,000). So far, we’ve received over €16,000, which is fantastic, but not quite enough. We are therefore calling upon your solidarity and generosity to help keep Metropolitics going, free and accessible to all. If you pay taxes in France, your donation is 66% tax-deductible. THANK YOU !
