Islamic tags on Notre Dame de Partout chapel

Country: France

Date of incident: March 10, 2024

On Sunday, March 10, the mayor of Saint-Mesmin discovered that the Notre-Dame-de-Partout chapel in Périgord Vert and the cross facing it were sprayed with graffiti. The tags are reading "the cross will be broken", "convert yourselves" and "Allah". This is only one incident in a series of similar vandalism attacks in the region.

The mayor of Saint-Mesmin suspects that this most recent incident was done by the same person or persons who tagged the calvaries in the Périgord Vert region, as well as around fifty graves in the Clermont d'Excideuil cemetery with similar slogans. 

The town hall assures that the Foyer Saint-Joseph, the association that owns and manages the chapel, will file a complaint, which will be added to those of the municipalities and the graveyard previously targeted.
