Posters likening Macron to Hitler probed

Macron - Hitler news

The offenders will be punished for insulting the president, French officials have said
Posters likening Macron to Hitler probed.

Authorities in the French city of Avignon have opened an investigation after posters appeared on the streets comparing President Emmanuel Macron to Adolf Hitler, AFP reports, citing the office of the city’s public prosecutor, Florence Galtier.

According to officials, the offenders will face two months in prison and a fine of €7,500 ($8,110) for “provocation to rebellion,” as well as a fine of €12,000 for insulting the president.

Around 30 anti-Macron posters glued to advertising boards were discovered on Thursday. They showed the French president with graying hair and the number 49.3 on his face, which looked like a small black mustache. It is a reference to Article 49.3 of the French Constitution, which the government invoked in March to ram through controversial pension reform without securing the support of the parliament (the National Assembly).

According to French media, the posters included a quote from Mahatma Gandhi about the “sacred duty” of civil disobedience against a “lawless or corrupt” state.

The posters are a reproduction of a mural painted by a local graffiti artist in an Avignon parking lot last month. The mural was quickly destroyed at the request of the local authorities.

Macron’s pension reform, which will gradually raise the retirement age from 62 to 64, has sparked protests in Paris and other cities, some of which spiraled into riots and clashes with police. The use of Article 49.3 was sharply criticized by the opposition.

In 2021, a billboard owner was fined €10,000 for depicting Macron as Hitler in protest against Covid-19 restrictions.

  1. French ‘democracy” the govt simply underlines these protestors point that France is not a democracy……not even close

  2. Hipkins can always fly over and hunt them down, he’s good at burning aviation fuel and making a cock of himself.

    • Les Miserable’s 2.0 is coming soon to the modern-day Barricades…in ALL French cities!
      Watch for the same in the Canadian Provinces, as there is a shared ‘culture’ of ethnic French, especially in in Montreal.
      Summer, mid 12-24 June 2023: Hal Turner has reported that Wold War Three begins via an entrenched NATO Air Exercise’ that is to coincide with the supposed ‘Ukrainian Counter-Offensive’.
      The U.S. Government is instructing the ‘Institutions’ to have a ’10-day supply of food’ on hand due to ‘Supply Chain’ ‘disruptions’.
      I would think that a nuclear blast zone with black glass surface areas and lumps of charcoal that used to be human beings that, unfortunately, voted Democrat and tampered with the last El-ection in behalf of Is-Ra-El would certainly be considered a …’disruption’…!
      Rice,…beans…and oatmeal, oh my!!

  3. Napoleon ll…Napoleon the Second…with a private jet & a satellite phone, providing ‘hook-up’ air taxi services for Prime Ministers who are also WEF Young Leaders whose 60 year old C-130’s have broken down, and criminalizing Basic & Fundamental Human Rights!
    Remember; *Trudeau (*AKA Fidel Castro Jr.) gave Jabby a ride on his private jet too!
    I wonder if the inflight catering included chocolate-covered cockroaches from Klaus Schwab, test tube meat from Bill Gates, an extra Covid Booster from Fauxci, and a rail of coke from Bill Clinton and acidic condoms from George Soros (aka Georg Schwartz…).

  4. At least Albert Speer on the left of the photo and on Hitler’s right maintained his superior intellect, dignity and insight throughout his life and career…!
    Speer should NEVER have been sentenced to 20 years in Spandau Prison…!
    His talent for organisation, architectural refinement, and resourcefulness should have been put to use rebuilding Germany overall!

  5. it is worrying that now in France, under macron s government, people are arrested during demonstrations without any ground for arrest and hold 24 hours in police custody.
    And that the prosecutor’s office put the name on register ( fiché S) of those who have been arrested while they have done nothing wrong, their arrest being illegal in the first place. What the prosecutor’s office do is totally illegal and is an abuse of power
    This happened very recently in Lille( northern France).
    It seems police and prosecutor s office got instructions from the government to intimidate demonstrants.
