    “Money for the French, not for foreigners! ” That was the message, marked in capital letters on a giant banner displayed on Friday, March 29 on facade of the Family Allowances Fund (CAF) of the Seine-Saint-Denis department. The department has a particularly high proportion of an immigrant population.

    The militant act was not much appreciated by the government. In fact, the French administration has declared war on the small group which was formed in 2012. As reported by the Huff Post, the secretary of state to the Minister of Health Christelle Dubos, stated her intention to “dissolve” Génération Identitaire.

    Since the display of banner, Dubos denounced “a hostage-taking of agents and the public service” , adding that an appointment was already scheduled with the ministers of the Interior and Justice, Christophe Castaner and Nicole Belloubet, “to see how we can dissolve this group”.

    Released after several hours by the police, 19 members of Génération Identitaire will be tried in November for obstructing the freedom to work. They risk three years in prison and a 45 000 euro fine. The public establishment in Bobigny had to be closed all morning.

    Also, some agents of the CAF said that said that the banner had left some of the residents confused. “Some beneficiaries thought that their rights would be interrupted, but they were reassured,” he explained.

    “We are here for everyone, regardless of colour or religion”.

    The director of the CAF of Seine-Saint-Denis, Tahar Belmounes, confirmed the statement: “Some took the banner to the first degree.”

    The intrusion had been meticulously prepared. “The banner was displayed exactly around the facade,” he noted, pointing out that three weeks ago, “three flower trees that hid the front of the Family Allowance Fund were cut down, so that the view was clear to take a beautiful picture”.

    GI has been a frontline in the anti-immigration struggle, as witnessed in the founding action of the movement, when it occupied the roof of an almost built mosque in the city of Poitiers. This was highly symbolic, because it’s near this town that, in 732, Charles Martel repelled a Muslim invasion, thus saving France and Europe from an Islamic domination.

    In March 2016, activists from Génération Identitaire installed barricades on Calais city’s bridges, preventing migrants from entering the town and harassing its inhabitants.

    Several European countries have their own identitarian activist groups, inspired by the French Génération Identitaire, and thousands of young people have joined.

    Finally, Génération Identitaire owns places in some big French cities where people can meet activists or share a drink. The movement also has its own private gym in the city of Lyon.
