If Brest and its surroundings remain relatively spared by the extreme right in terms of militant settlement, fascist groups are nevertheless agitated in the region, and the RN vote is progressing here as in the rest of the country. Faced with this rise of the brown ideas of the popular resistances are organized. ---- Because we know that giving up ground on the far right can be catastrophic, we must not wait for their presence to grow before taking action. It is in this perspective that Visa29 was created. The objective of building local vigilance and anti-fascist awareness-raising actions led to the organization of an inter-union Visa training day (Inter-union anti-fascist vigilance) and the 2 ndBrestois Social Forum (FSB) on the theme of anti-fascism .
This dynamic made it possible to react quickly and in a united manner when Marine Le Pen came to support the RN candidate in Brest. No offense to Gilles Pennelle, RN regional chief, who had threatened our organizations by declaring: "We will take care of it particularly when we are in power, that is to say very soon, and we will put them out of state of harm" , 200 people gathered on January 30 in front of the hotel that hosted Le Pen. Another refrain could then be heard to denounce the danger of the RN who wishes to capitalize on the discontent in this period of social movement by diverting anger towards its preferred targets: the exiles · Muslims and Muslims, the "leftists"... In the end, Le Pen was forced to export his press conference to the moldy room of his training, all under the protection of the police ... An image that speaks volumes. The UCL Brest was involved in this approach, which turned out to be generally positive, even if this should give rise, in the future, to a real strategic reflection on the limits imposed by certain unitary executives of a struggle. coherent and effective unitary antifascist.

The RN waiting line in Brest
After the action, reflection !
The presence of the PS in the signatories of the call to demonstrate, therefore raises questions. How, even in a unitary and local appeal, can we put under the carpet his anti-social, authoritarian and discriminatory policy when he was in power, paving the way for the hard right and the far right (mass expulsions of exiles) , Islamophobia, state of emergency, Labor law...) ?

It is in this context that we gave the start of a weekend of anti-fascist reflections on February 7 and 8. Inter-union training, screenings, workshops, conferences and round tables followed one another on various themes: women and the extreme right, possibility of fascism, Afro-feminism, reception of those in exile, confusion, municipal frontism, history of the far right extraparliamentary. .. More than 200 people participated in this FSB which ended with a canteen-concert evening. A beautiful political moment that we already intend to repeat on other subjects.
