Xenophobic tags were discovered Friday on the permanence of the Communist Party located in the twelfth arrondissement of Paris. An image of the inscription – "Migrants outside Europe" – was shared on Twitter by Nicolas Bonnet Oulaldj, president of the Communists and Citizens of Paris group on the city council.
"Our local in the 12th was tagged last night with an intolerable xenophobic inscription, a sign of the extreme right," he wrote, adding that other "anti-Semitic and racist" tags had been discovered on Place d'Aligre, still in the twelfth arrondissement. "We don't let anything pass!" he said.

The communist received the support of the mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo. "These unworthy and nauseating inscriptions have no place in Paris. We will never give in to hatred, racism and anti-Semitism," she said in a tweet. On Sunday, the synagogue of Issy-les-Moulineaux had been targeted by tags, leading to the opening of an investigation.
Several racist or xenophobic inscriptions were found Friday throughout the France, the day after the attack in Annecy, where a man of Syrian origin seriously injured four children and an adult.
The inscription "Your migrants, our dead" was discovered in the morning on the roller shutter of the permanence of Loïc Prud'homme, an LFI deputy, in Villenave-d'Ornon, in the suburbs of Bordeaux.
In Lyon, the far-right group "Les Remparts" hung a sign on the gate of a park on which it was written: "Park closed because of the presence of migrants" and calling to "hunt illegals".
