French Elect Antifa Leader On Security Watchlist To Parliament

Raphaël Arnault accused of political violence, supporting Hamas October 7th terror attack


(Modernity) An Antifa leader on a French security watchlist who has been accused of defending the October 7th Hamas terror attacks and violently attacking a right-wing activist was elected to the French parliament.

The far-left New Popular Front alliance gained the largest seat share in the French National Assembly after the country’s second round of voting on Sunday.

One of the successful NPF candidates was Raphaël Arnault, leader of the Lyon Antifa collective ‘Jeune Garde Antifasciste’ (Young Antifascist Guard), who defeated populist National Rally candidate Catherine Jaouen with 54.98 per cent of the vote.

Arnault’s political campaign, which was backed by far-left La France Insoumise (LFI) leader Jean-Luc Mélenchon, sparked controversy after it was revealed Arnault has an “S-file” on his name, meaning that he is on the French government’s national security watchlist.

“The list typically catalogues people who pose a threat to the safety of the state such as terrorists, however, it also includes violent environmentalists or members of extremist political groups, such as the Antifa group to which Arnault belongs,” reports Breitbart.

“Because having an S-file does not equate to a criminal conviction — or even necessarily state surveillance — it means that there are no restrictions on Arnault entering the National Assembly.”

Despite downplaying a confrontation on Paris subway which occurred in May as a “brief altercation,” Arnault’s Antifa group was accused of attacking a 15-year-old who claimed to have been assaulted for being a “supposed jew”and a “zionist”.

Eight members of the Antifa group were indicted on June 27th for their involvement in the alleged attack.
