Ultra-right: justice suspends the ban on a demonstration on Saturday in Paris

It will finally take place. The administrative court suspended, this Saturday morning, the ban by the Paris police prefect of an ultra-right demonstration planned for the afternoon in Paris. It was urgently seized on Tuesday by the organizers of this demonstration, the “May 9 Committee”. In its decision, the court ruled that the ban posed “a serious and manifestly illegal attack on the freedom to demonstrate.”

The group behind the protest organizes a gathering every year to commemorate the anniversary of the death of far-right activist Sébastien Deyzieu, who died accidentally in 1994.

To justify this decree, the police headquarters had focused in particular on a risk of disturbances to public order and recalled the precedent of 2023. That year, the parade of the “May 9 Committee”, which had not been banned, had sparked a lively controversy. Some 600 ultra-right activists, mostly dressed in black and with masked faces, marched through the streets of Paris, showing flags with Celtic crosses and chanting “Europe youth revolution”, the slogan of the student union of ultra-right GUD (Union Defense Group).

In reaction, the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, asked the prefects to ban all ultra-right demonstrations and meetings. In Paris, the administrative court has since suspended several times, in the name of freedom to demonstrate, banning orders issued by Paris police prefect Laurent Nuñez.
