Murder of Matisse: demonstrations banned in Albi after a call for a rally by a far-right group

The prefect of Tarn issued an order banning demonstrations on Sunday in Albi, a small far-right group having announced a gathering in tribute to Matisse, the teenager killed on April 27 in Châteauroux, and the local FSU having called for a counter-demonstration.

“The undeclared gathering organized by the entity Patria Albiges in homage to Matisse killed on April 27, 2024, as well as the counter-demonstration against far-right ideas declared by the Unitary Trade Union Federation 81, are prohibited on Sunday May 5 in the commune of Albi”, decided the prefecture.

On its Instagram account, the small identity group Patria Albiges called for a rally for Matisse on Sunday at 3 p.m., likely to “create a high risk of disturbances to public order”, according to the prefecture.

Hate messages against foreigners

The collective has particularly stood out in recent weeks through expressions in public spaces targeting foreigners or people of foreign origin, recalled the prefecture which also underlines that in March 2023, clashes took place between members of Patria Albiges and members of the ultra-left in Albi.

In view of the demonstration announced by the FSU, “there are serious reasons to fear the occurrence” of new clashes of the same type, according to the prefect.

In Châteauroux, a white march in tribute to young Matisse, 15, killed by a teenager of the same age on April 27, takes place Saturday afternoon in the center of the city, at the call of the family who refuses any recovery policy.
