Anti-Semitic act: a Nazi cross and the word Jewish spray painted on their car

Tuesday October 17, 2023, a couple of residents of the city center of Ancenis-Saint Géréon (Loire-Atlantique) were the target of an anti-Semitic act.

The couple, who are activists for France Insoumise, found their family vehicle with a Nazi swastika drawn on the hood. The word “Jew” was also written there.

Anti-Semitic act: a complaint filed with the gendarmerie
United, the left-wing organizations of Loire-Atlantique (France insoumise, Socialist Party, Europe ecology the Greens in particular) gave “their support” to the two activists, victims of “an anti-Semitic and fascistic provocation. We want to warn about the trivialization of provocations from the far right. »

A complaint was filed with the Ancenis-Saint Géréon gendarmerie, who took this new alert “very seriously”.

Third anti-Semitic act suffered by the couple in a year

This is in fact the third time, in a year, that the couple, also involved in cultural and environmental collectives and associations in Ancenis, have suffered a provocation of this kind.

We recall that anti-Semitism, like all provocations to discrimination, hatred or violence, based on true or supposed belonging to an ethnic group, nation, race or religion, is not an opinion: is an offense punishable by law.

Rebellious France of Loire-Atlantique

The left-wing collective now calls for “permanent vigilance by fellow citizens of Ancenis against the trivialization of such comments and actions”.
