French Minister announces dissolution of Catholic movement 'Accademia Christiana'

Country: France

Date of incident: December 10, 2023

The French Minister of Interior, Gérald Darmanin, announced on 10 December that he would present in “the coming weeks” to the Council of Ministers the dissolution of Academia Christiana, a youth-movement of traditional Catholics which since its foundation in 2013 has brought together thousands of young Christians in its training courses and summer schools. According to the minister, the decision was made on the fact that the movement is "inciting hatred and discrimination." Academia Christiana has already announced that they will challenge then ban in court.

"By seeking to dissolve us, the government is once again attacking Catholics, whom it considers to be second-class citizens. You must understand that the French government has now decided to ban any thought or reflection outside the secularist and consumerist ideology," reads the Accademia Chriistiana's press release on the recent news.
