Category: Social Hostility / Intolerance

Attack against: Faith

Area of case: Private



On the 14th of January, the Diocesan House of Grenoble hosted a pro-life event which drew a few hundred protesters. Between the 14th and 19th of January, graffiti was sprayed on the outer walls of the house and then between January 19th and 21st, its glass windows and doors were smashed.

These incidents occurred around the same time that the Saint-Jacques church in Grenoble was vandalized with pro-abortion graffiti and then burned to the ground. While the cause of the fire was deemed to be short circuit in the electrical system, an anarcho-libertarian group claimed responsibility.
