Ultra-Right’s Street Marches In Annecy: Post-Paris Implications

An unauthorized nationalist demonstration took place Tuesday evening in the center of the lakeside city.

After Paris, Annecy (F). On May 6, a demonstration bringing together nearly 600 ultra-right activists, most hooded and wearing Celtic crosses, marched through the streets of Paris and shocked France. Tuesday evening, a similar action took place in the heart of the Haute-Savoie lakeside city. About forty nationalist activists crisscrossed the city to cries, as in Paris, of “Europe, youth, revolution!”.

They also chanted “France to the French”, sang nationalist songs and unfurled a banner on which was inscribed: “Faced with repression, no submission”, reported in particular “Le Dauphiné Liberated” and “France 3”. The march took place around 10 p.m. It was not declared, therefore not authorized. The police intervened and carried out identity checks. The prefect “condemned” this “night parade bringing together far-right participants” carrying the seeds of “public incitement to hatred, violence or discrimination”.
