The University of Bordeaux Montaigne condemns these actions. Rebel deputies of NUPES, Louis Boyard and Carlos Martens Bilongo, gave a conference on December 7 in the closed part of the university. This was disrupted by hooded individuals and, for some, armed individuals attempting to enter the establishment.
According to the University of Bordeaux, there were about twenty hooded men armed with iron bars and chanting racist slogans. The enterprise decided to file a complaint.
Rebel MPs Louis Boyard and Carlos Martens Bilongo were holding a conference at the institution’s amphitheater in Pessac on December 7 when gunmen, identified as far-right, attempted to enter.

“Hen avoided the worst, there were pensioners, young people. Can you imagine, there can be a massacre, coming to kill thirty people“, Carlos Martens launches Bilongo.”People of color like me could be targeted. I was forced out by the police. I think they wanted to attack us physically.”
Police confirm their intervention after receiving a call at around 19:10. “When we arrived, they had already dispersed“, referring to the Bordeaux police, who stated that no victim has come forward. No one has been arrested or identified.
However, according to Jean-Baptiste, the police are present at the scene as spectators “No they really broke up the militants, they went into hiding a little bit, so people were almost attacked as they were going out.”
On one of the boards held by these people, we can read the words of Grégoire de Fournas, a member of the National Assembly, in the assembly last month.Let them go back to Africa“. Comments he made during the intervention of illegal immigration by Carlos Martens Bilongo. Médoc’s elected RN judges this incident “is unacceptable“and it goes away from the moves.” I have nothing to do with these people, I don’t even know them.
