Grégory Doucet, the EELV mayor of Lyon, announced his decision to ban Dieudonné's show which was due to take place this Friday evening in a still unknown location. "I have decided, in conjunction with the prefecture, to ban the performance of Dieudonné M'Bala M'Bala's show in Lyon.

In mid-August, a similar decision was taken by the Lyon municipality after a request from the Representative Council of Jewish Institutions of France (CRIF) of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes. "Dieudonné has set himself up as a preacher of hatred who is a repeat offender, which constitutes a threat to social cohesion and tolerance," Crif said in its statement. In the end, his show took place at the last moment in a field in the commune of Décines-Charpieu.

Convicted several times for racial insult, incitement to hatred and apology for terrorism, then for tax fraud and misuse of company assets in 2021 by the Court of Appeal, the actor is under house arrest and must wear an electronic bracelet.
