Mayor Del Carvey admitted that Asians are easy to be victims of violent attacks. According to French television reports, there have been 105 violent attacks in the city of Oberville in the past eight months, which is unbelievable.

This parade lasting about two and a half hours has two distinctive features. First, orderly. The parade has always maintained its formation, and many people wear white T-shirts with protest slogans. Almost everyone holds a small French flag in their hands or a placard with the words "anti-violence, be safe." A team of security personnel accompanied them all the way. They were made up of members of the French Foreign Corps Veterans' Association. They were responsible for guiding the departees back to the parade to keep the queue neat and avoid accidental impact. Second, dilute the color of "Weihua". Although the main purpose of the march was to call for ensuring the safety of overseas Chinese, the marchers did not isolate the Chinese community from other communities, but issued the slogan "To ensure the safety of all people" in order to fight for other people who are also suffering from the deterioration of public order. Group support, while emphasizing that the Chinese group is also a French citizen, the French government should give equal attention.

The deteriorating public security situation and the increase in cases of violence against Chinese have profound social roots. On the one hand, in recent years, France ’s economy has been weak and unemployment has remained high. Many Arab or African-American youths at the bottom of the society have financial constraints, coupled with limited education, and it is inevitable to take risks; Few reports and lack of representative power in politics also make it easy to become the target of violent attacks. The overseas Chinese in Oberville believes that in order to improve the status of law and order facing the Chinese community, a multi-pronged approach is needed. On the one hand, Chinese groups should actively organize their rights protection activities and continue to exert pressure on relevant departments; on the other hand, they should also encourage young Chinese to actively participate in and discuss politics in France to cultivate their own political power. At present, the Chinese in the Aubervilliers area have organized and established the local residents' rights protection center through WeChat groups and other means to communicate with the municipal government and the district police station. The overseas Chinese community in France also plans to hold another demonstration on the Republic Square in Paris on September 4 to express their safety demands. Tian Ling, a Chinese parliamentarian in Oberville, advised the Chinese to increase their awareness of rights protection. After being violated, they took the initiative to report to the police station. Under the current situation of insufficient police force in France, only regions with a high incidence rate can get enough police force. Sun Wenxiong, chairman of the French Asian League, encouraged Chinese to actively participate in politics in France, and promoted the improvement of their living conditions. For example, he said that one of the important reasons why the safety of the Jewish ethnic group in France is valued is the large number of politicians of this ethnic group. "Whether from a security or development perspective, we need to encourage a large number of Chinese people, especially young people, to participate in and discuss politics," he said.
