Gérald Darmanin announces the dissolution of two small groups in the Council of Ministers
Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin announced the dissolution of two small groups. The first, baptized “les Alerteurs” based in the Aude, advocated radical Islam and the other, “Bordeaux Nationaliste”, defended a “xenophobic ideology calling for hatred and violence”, according to the minister. The dissolution of these two small groups was pronounced in Council on the proposal of the Minister.
According to its decree of dissolution, the association “Les Alerteurs” is accused of “conveying an anti-republican and radical ideology inviting to revolt and violence by suggesting that the coup d’etat would be a mode of action to be favored against the French government.
This small group also disseminated conspiracy theories. In addition to an anti-Semitic and homophobic discourse, the association is also criticized for “minimizing” the attacks that have hit France and tending “to justify them in the name of blasphemy”.
A defense of the use of violence
“Bordeaux Nationaliste”, a far-right group from Bordeaux, is accused of the involvement of its members in “acts of violence in meetings and degradation” as well as “brawls” against “anti-fascist militants”.
According to decree pronouncing its dissolutionmention is made of a “strategy of recruiting new members by exalting the use of violence” and the “regular organization of gatherings in tribute or in support of ultra-right groups or emblematic personalities of the collaboration”.
Last year, the Minister of the Interior also announced the dissolution of the ultra-right group “les Zouaves Paris”. This informal group, which appeared in 2017 and brought together around twenty members, was accused of being “at the origin of numerous and recurring violent acts” and of “spreading an openly racist discourse”, broadcasting “regularly images containing the symbols of Nazi ideology. »
