Unfortunately, the French street often undoes what the French ballot box decides.
A Paris festival celebrating US music and culture has been called off following a series of anti-American threats, organisers said on Sunday.
Called "Three Days in America", the festival featuring country and gospel concerts, line-dancing, sales of US paraphernalia and a tribute to Elvis Presley was to take place from May 26 to 28 in Saint Cloud, southwest of Paris.
Organisers issued a statement saying they were forced to postpone the event following "persistent pressure and threats of an anti-American nature".
