France is Shutting Down a Far-right Group


France’s Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault repeated his promise today, to crack down on fascist groups in the country.

Ayrault asked the interior minister of France to take steps “immediately” to dissolve the Revolutionary Nationalist Youth (JNR), after the killing of a leftist student in Paris this week. The group is the militant wing of a broader far-right movement known as the “Third Way”.

Five people are already under investigation over the death 19-year-old Clement Meric, in a clash between ultra-right and far-left youths on Wednesday. The far-right groups have been protesting on the streets for month over the legalization of gay marriage.

The prosecutor said the 19 year old died from massive head injuries from a beating. He was placed on life support but was declared brain dead and died on Thursday.

Prime Minister said the government has vowed to crackdown on neo-Nazi and fascist groups in France. He added that the French government is looking into whether other far-right groups could be dissolved.

Since the introduction of same-sex marriage in the Parliament, France has seen increasing tension between the Left and Right groups.

On May 26, tens of thousands of people protested against the new same-sex marriage law in central Paris, and many right-wing demonstrators clashed with the police.

Although they operated in the shadows, there are many militant extreme-right groups in France and they have become increasingly visible in recent years.
