The French government is to take steps to break up a far-right group allegedly linked to the death of a left-wing activist.
Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault has asked the interior minister to take steps "immediately" to dissolve the Revolutionary Nationalist Youth (JNR).
Five people are under investigation over the death of Clement Meric, 18.
He was badly beaten in a clash between far-right and anti-fascist activists in Paris on Wednesday, and later died.
The Paris Prosecutor, Francois Molins said according to witnesses the two groups had run into each other by chance in a busy shopping district near St Lazare train station, where a fight broke out.
He said the arrested suspects claimed to have responded to provocation by the left-wing group...
France has seen increasing tension between left and right, following a fierce debate over the introduction of same-sex marriage...
The JNR is the militant wing of a far-right movement known as the Third Way.
It has denied any link to the brawl. Its leader, Serge Ayoub, has been questioned by police following the killing but is not a suspect.
But Mr Molins said on Saturday that all the suspects under investigation had ties to the Third Way. Only one, a young woman named Katia, was said to have admitted being a member, he added.

“Revolutionary Nationalist Youth leader Serge Ayoub has been questioned by police”
Is the Third Way Frances way?

[snip] The Third Way is, at best, regarded by French Socialists as a specifically British approach to the renewal of social democracy. At worst and more often, it is perceived merely as a form of neoliberalism... The French Socialists (PS) are generally hostile... attributed to the fact that they depend on building alliances on the left to form a majority... The presence of parties in the majority which are unambiguously opposed to the idea of the Third Way... [/snip]

Quick synopsis from other threads:
1) The Lefties spot a small group of skinheads.
2) Outnumbering the skinheads, the Lefties proceed to harass them and try to start a fight.
3) What the Lefties don’t realize that there are more skinheads shopping nearby. Ooops!
4) Fight breaks out outside the store, one of the Lefties gets hit, falls, hits head, dies.
5) This is used as an excuse by the Socialist French government to crack down on all “right wingers” everywhere.
This will be Ubama’s roadmap for getting rid of “Teabaggers.”
Sounds about right. I haven’t read the other threads, just commenting on Lefty actions in general. It jives with other times, other places.
It is also worth noting that “the right” in Europe means a very different thing than “the right” in an American sense, but out Left will conflate the two at every opportunity.
Meanwhile, muslims kill and rape and police are too scared to stop them, and nothing is done. There are effin no-go zones controlled by muslims in France. If I go to visit France again, it won’t be the right, the far-right or anyone else besides muslims I’ll be concerned about.
Suppressing their legitimate activities will only force them to fight back.
The left is doing what it always does, oppress anyone who is not far left.
Hopefully, this will blow up in their faces.
The descriptions of the competing factions shows the bias of this BBC article. "Far" has a fringe, negative connotations. "Anti-fascists" suggests the good guys battling the evil bad guys. In reality, The totalitarian Left, including the BBC, are the fascists who wish to crush any dissent to their culture altering policies by any means necessary. This includes the government ban on protests by non-Cultural Marxists.
I'm willing to bet that the Leftist "anti-fascists" started the conflict in question and then got their butts handed to them by real men.
Can you really see these clowns dissolving the leftist party in this had they done what they tried to do, instigating and winning a fight instead of losing?
Nobody comes off very well out of this, but because Meric was a student at an elite school, he's become a martyr to some on the left. Some sites refer to him as a gay activist, if true, that's one more reason some people will make a martyr out of him.
There are a lot of lessons one could learn from this incident, but given French history, I doubt the people over there who need to learn the most will get anything out of this.
Its leader, Serge Ayoub, has been questioned by police following the killing but is not a suspect.
Which is more ironic? That the leader of the French revolutionary nationalist youth movement is of Arab (Lebanese) descent? Or that the youth leader is almost 50 years old?
