They write this anti migrant message on a sign the mayor

The town hall of Besançon has filed a complaint against Nemesis, a far-right feminist collective. Women held up signs linking rape to foreign men during a festival in the city on Sunday April 7.

Two women from the Nemesis collective – a “feminist identity movement”, in the words of the association – held up signs on which it was written: “Foreign rapists out” and “free us from immigration”, during the carnival from Besançon, Sunday April 7.

The environmentalist husband of Besançon, Anne Vignot, announced on Sunday April 7 that she was filing a complaint for “incitement to hatred”. “They appear without difficulty, in a completely uninhibited manner, during a demonstration in which they benefit from a large audience. They want to fuel hatred against migrants. It’s filthy. It’s scandalous and it’s is incredible to experience this in France”, estimates Anne Vignot, interviewed by the Republican East.

Nemesis responded to the elected official on Alice Cordier, director of the movement, also spoke out: “Yes, we called for the expulsion of rapists who are foreigners. Are you opposed to this Anne Vignot?” she tweeted.

The collective also displayed a banner on a facade on which it was written: “46 women could have been spared if the OQTF had been applied in 2023”.

Another complaint was filed last November

Last November, Nemesis had already been targeted by a complaint in Besançon, filed by the University of Franche-Comté for “incitement to hatred”. The collective would have written the same slogan on walls: “free us from immigration”. The complaint is currently in the process of being closed.

Nemesis has regularly displayed far-right positions, particularly on the subject of immigration. Marine Le Pen and Eric Zemmour were supported by members of the collective during the 2022 presidential election.
