Villeurbanne: Laurent Wauquiez removes subsidies from an antifa festival

The promotional clip of an anti-fascist music festival, in which rappers insult the police, led Laurent Wauquiez, president of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, to remove the subsidy of 45,000 euros paid by the region to the cultural and social center (CCO) of Villeurbanne (Rhône). The center, for its part, considers itself wrongly actuated.

The words that do not pass were made in 2015 by two rappers: Lax and Original Tonio. They resurface today for the return of the antifa festival in Villeurbanne.

But if Laurent Wauquiez has announced that he is withdrawing the subsidy from the CCO which hosts the event, for its part, the city’s CCO has announced that it is dissociating itself from the comments and wants the decision of the president of the region to be reconsidered.

For Cédric Van Styvendael, elected mayor of Villeurbanne on July 4, 2020, the decision was taken in a hurry. The councilor added that a reflection was underway on the holding, or not, of the festival.

After two years of interruption, the Covid epidemic requires, the 8th edition of the antifa festival should in theory be held on December 10 and 11, 2021.
