to get this man's bravery recognised

he was incredibly brave. However it is not IMO for the residents of other countries to petition the government of france to grant him citizenship. I hope that he is granted citizenship in France, but on the basis I don't believe that I as a British citizen should have the right to demand/question/request who is and is not granted citizenship elsewhere I won't be signing it.

Have the police issued a statement to say they assumed he was a terrorist because he's black.... Or is that it made up to make a story have more impact?

I am not a French citizen. I don't think it would be appropriate and I doubt if the French Govt. would pay the blindest notice if I did.

Sorry I won't be signing for the above reasons.

The French Interior Minister has already said he will be given citizenship
