A demonstration was held this morning in Bruz near Rennes. Around 11:30 a.m., opponents of the arrival of Jordan Bardella, acting president of the RN, erected a burning barricade near the place where he was to hold a meeting as part of the campaign for the internal election at the head of the left.
About 200 people dressed in black threw various projectiles and fireworks at the police, who responded with tear gas.
“Intimidation will not work”, thundered Jordan Bardella on Twitter, with regard to the “antifa red militias of Rennes”.
The red “antifa” militias of #Rennes seek to prevent us from holding our public meeting in Brittany.
I tell them very clearly: intimidation will not work and we will come together as planned.
Thank you to the police mobilized against these thugs! pic.twitter.com/0EsfhGYn6T

Gilles Pennelle, president of the RN group at the Regional Council of Brittany, attacked the Prefect of Ille-et-Vilaine, “unable to assess the reality of the threat”.
Unable to assess the reality of the threat, unable to prevent the violence of the far left, unable to protect honest citizens who go to a rural political meeting, the Prefect of Ille-et-Vilaine is below of all !@J_Bardella

The tense confrontation went on for about an hour before the protesters turned back. At midday, calm had returned to the place where the RN militants arrived supervised by the police.
