Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin announced on Sunday that he would present in "the coming weeks" to the Council of Ministers the dissolution of Academia Christiana, a movement of Catholics in favor of the St. Pius V Mass, and considered close to the identitarian right.
We will present their dissolution to the Council of Ministers in the coming weeks," the interior minister told the online media outlet Brut. The group is known for its "calls for hatred and discrimination," the minister's entourage told AFP.
Founded in 2013 by young people close to the identitarian movement, Academia Christiana presents itself as a "training institute" both spiritual and physical. "There are at least three other ultra-right groups" in the sights of the intelligence services, the interior minister also said, without giving details.
