Harassing Graffiti at Saint-Martin Basilica

Country: France

Date of incident: July 12, 2020

Category: Social Hostility / Intolerance

Attack against: Faith



During the night of July 11th, the outside walls of Saint-Martin Basilica in Tours were sprayed with offensive graffiti (a cruder version of "become lesbians"), as well as the familiar anarchic tag "ACAB". The graffiti is clearly visible at the entrance of the basilica and was probably intended for the Benedictine nuns of the Sacred Heart of Montmartre, who serve in the basilica. The police took photos and are investigating the case.
