A crowd of protesters in France prompt police to extract a Jewish Socialist Party politician from an event celebrating International Workers’ Day.

Officers accompany Raphaël Glucksmann away from the May 1 event in Saint-Étienne, a heavily Muslim suburb of Lyon, the France Bleu radio station reports.

Protesters chanted: “Glucksmann, get lost, France is not yours.” This is an adaptation of “Zionist, get lost, France is not yours,” which many observers believe is an antisemitic slogan disguised as a political message against Zionism.
