remi-sophie-070816On Hiroshima Day, August 6, Rémi Filliau and Sophie Jallier took part in a demonstration outside the Paris headquarters of Les Républicains to denounce the historical responsibility of the pro-nuclear French political party. Police arrested the two Désobéir Collective activists and held them overnight after they pasted a few adhesive anti-nuclear stickers on the windows and chalked a simple message, “No to nuclear weapons – which cost us €4 billion per year.”

Charged with defacing the building, they will be in court on November 7.
