Created by the “La Horde” site and published by Libertalia editions, the “simulation game” bringing “a local anti-fascist group to life” was attacked by RN deputies and the SCPN.



Fnac has announced the withdrawal from its shelves of a board game created by an anti-fascist site after criticism on Twitter from a police union and several elected officials from the National Rally.

We understand that the marketing of this game may have offended some of our audiences.

We are doing what is necessary to ensure that it is no longer available in the coming hours

, ”Fnac wrote on its official Twitter account on Sunday in response to the union of national police commissioners (SCPN).

”.

Several elected RNs also challenged Fnac on Twitter and welcomed Monday the withdrawal of the game, created by the site "

La Horde

" and published by Libertalia editions.

Libertalia denounced “

false allegations emanating from the extreme right and then from the forces of repression

” which led to the withdrawal of a “

training tool designed by La Horde and Libertalia

”.
