Doors and windows were vandalized on the night of Friday to Saturday by at least two individuals, says Philippe Martinez, general secretary of the confederation.
the headquarters of the CGT in Montreuil was “vandalized” in the night from Friday to Saturday by masked individuals, who broke several doors and windows, told AFP Philippe Martinez, General Secretary of the confederation. “It was done quickly enough. hooded individuals with backpacks crossed the barriers and typed, bound with beefy objects on doors and windows are left pretty quickly, “he said, adding that a police team the facts found and that an investigation was opened. “In the images of the video, we see two individuals,” he said.
However, hooded people could not go inside the headquarters of the union . “There are several doors to cross to go to headquarters. They broke the first, the windows on the sides, but they could not enter because there is a system that is triggered, continued Martinez. We have avoided the worst. ” According to him, the office has so far never been a victim of violence of “this magnitude.” The motive for the attack was not known Saturday afternoon. Manuel Valls responded on his Twitter account a “strong condemnation of vandalism against the headquarters of the CGT.”
Police sources, the hooded individuals were armed with hammers and intervened to 23:30. They broke windows seven to eight before being chased away by security guards. “They will be very difficult to identify because of the balaclavas. It looks like a rematch after breaking the CFDT, “according to the police source, that evokes people” obviously well organized. ” The investigation was entrusted to the police station of Montreuil.
The headquarters of the CFDT has indeed also been vandalized Thursday in closing the Paris demonstration against the labor law. Hours after the dispersal of the parade, hundreds of protesters had visited the district of Belleville, in the east of the capital. Some smashed the windows of the headquarters of the CFDT, which is not involved in the mobilization against the law. In red letters, it was inscribed on the facade: “It’s over to betray.” Nine people were arrested on this occasion. The CGT has “condemned” Friday “attack and damage” committed against the headquarters of the CFDT. “We must convince his ideas and not coerce by violence!” Pleads the CGT. The secretary general of the CFDT has meanwhile said Saturday that “what [the] interests” are the good results of professional elections.
