Dissolution of Alvarium’s Premises Association After Angers Violence

After the closure by municipal decree of the premises of the former Alvarium, located rue du Cornet, in Angers (Maine-et-Loire), the association tenant of the place, which welcomed the militants of the Rally of right-wing students, declared , on July 10, 2023, its dissolution at the prefecture.

Is this the final end of the far-right local located at number 31 rue du Cornet? In a press release published on Wednesday July 12, 2023, the mayor of Angers (Maine-et-Loire) and the prefect announce that they have “received on July 10, 2023 a declaration of dissolution of the association Les butineurs de l’Anjou”.

If this name means nothing to you, this association created in 2019 is nevertheless a tenant of the well-known stronghold of local identity activists. Since the dissolution of the Alvarium in November 2021, the place has hosted activists from the Right-wing Student Rally (Red).

Tenant and… owner

The foragers of Anjou had been created by a certain Axel Levavasseur. Coming from a wealthy family from Maine-et-Loire who made a fortune in horticulture, the 30-year-old is regularly cited as a financial supporter of the far right. In addition to being the president of the now dissolved association, he is also… the owner of the walls. The reasons for this “self-dissolution” remain unknown for the moment.

Since July 5, the premises have been closed until further notice by municipal decree. In question: the disorder and the violence committed nearby the day after Nahel’s death, but also the non-respect of security standards, detected after “an unexpected visit by the inter-municipal security commission”, indicates the press release. After that ?

And after ?

After the dissolution of the Alvarium, the Red had taken over the premises. Its spokesperson is also a former member. On August 10, he will be presented, with three other activists, in court for “participation in a group for the preparation of violence”. By his side ? Jean-Eudes Gannat, former spokesperson for… the Alvarium.
