Racist tags against migrants were discovered Friday on the permanence of an LFI deputy in Gironde, the day after the knife attack in Annecy committed by a Syrian refugee, which left six wounded, including four young children. The inscription "Your migrants, our dead" was discovered Friday morning on the roller shutter of the permanence of Loïc Prud'homme in Villenave-d'Ornon, in the suburbs of Bordeaux.

They can tag my permanence, my humanist and antiracist convictions are only strengthened, "responded on Twitter Loïc Prud'homme.
