French National Day, 2020

 

Bastille Day:
⏳ Is celebrated on July 14th to mark the birth of the French Republic.
⏳ It commemorates the storming of the Bastille (a medieval  prison in Paris) on 14th July 1789 & is rooted in history as the birth of the French Revolution.

The Prison:
⛓ The Bastille was originally a fortress built to protect Paris during the Hundred Years’ War.
⛓ By the late 1700s, the Bastille was mostly used as a state prison by King Louis XVI
⛓ It symbolized absolute power & tyranny of the French Monarchy.
⛓ All those who opposed or angered the king, were jailed for arbitrary & unclear reasons. 

The Turning Point in the French Revolution:
?? The storming of the Bastille by the French revolutionaries signalled the start of the French Revolution.
?? It forced the monarchy to take notice of the citizens & set off a series of events that led to the overthrow of King Louis XVI.
?? The success of the revolutionaries gave the people of France the courage to fight against the oppressive government who had ruled them for so long.
?? It is an important historical day in France, & is also known as ‘la Fête Nationale’ & ‘le Quatorze Juillet’.

Bastille Day, 2020
? This year, the military parade will be smaller & will be held in Place de la Concorde square in central Paris.
? The ceremony will include the traditional fly-over by the French air force, in honour of the military’s participation in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic as well as frontline health care workers.
