A protest march by patriots on the French Island of Corsica turned violent last week, prompting authorities to temporarily ban public demonstrations in a poor neighborhood where the violence earlier took place.
Hundreds, again, took the streets on Saturday. According to news.yahoo.com:
Hundreds marched through poor areas of the capital Ajaccio on Saturday for a second straight day, shouting slogans such as "This is our home!" and "Arabs get out".A ban on protests in the Jardins de l'Empereur neighborhood is in effect until Jan. 4, 2016. Nonetheless, another protest was held on Sunday.

Hundreds of people marched in Corsica on Sunday after two days of violent anti-Arab riots, sidestepping a ban on demonstrations in a flashpoint neighbourhood by taking their protests elsewhere in the capital.
Hundreds marched through poor areas of the capital Ajaccio on Saturday for a second straight day, shouting slogans such as "This is our home!" and "Arabs get out".
Corsica's administrator Christophe Mirmand announced a ban on all protests and gatherings until at least January 4 in the poor Jardins de l'Empereur housing estate, the epicentre of the violence.
But hundreds took to the streets again on Sunday, dodging the ban by marching through other Ajaccio neighbourhoods chanting: "We fight against scum, not against Arabs!"
