One more ban. The prefect of Haute-Savoie announced this Friday to prohibit the performance of the show of the controversial comedian Dieudonné, scheduled for Saturday in Allonzier-la-Caille. This decision was taken by prefectural order "in order to prevent any breach of public order," the prefect said in a statement.
In recent weeks, several cities have already banned the holding of the performance of the show "Under bracelet: an extraordinary show", such as Toulouse, Montpellier, Lyon, Besançon, Paris or Grenoble, where the argument of maintaining public order has also been advanced.
The location of the show unveiled at the last moment
The comedian has already been convicted for anti-Semitic remarks but also for incitement to racial hatred and apology of terrorism, which earned him these bans.
"The City of Grenoble condemns any abusive remarks, inciting hatred, aimed at fracturing society and discriminating against certain communities, Dieudonné will never be welcome in Grenoble," said in a statement the city, led by Green Eric Piolle, after the announcement of the ban.
In each city where the show is given, the exact location remains revealed to spectators who have pre-booked their seats, at the last moment, via SMS. Thus, despite bans, performances have still been held in recent months.
