French Police Monitor Potential Release of Extremist Antifa Leader

French police say they are monitoring the possible prison release of Antifa extremist Antonin Bernanos, fearing he could lead violent protests at the G7 in August.

Mr Bernanos was sentenced to five years in prison in September of 2017 for attacking a police car in Paris in 2016, although two years were suspended. 

Police say they are monitoring his release, claiming that he is one of the few people able to organise and motivate large numbers of Antifa extremists in the far-left scene in Paris, Europe1 reports.

Intelligence services add that some in the Antifa black bloc in Paris have become disinterested in opposing globalism, with many believing the train tickets to the G7 in Biarritz later this month to be too expensive and the 465-mile car ride too far.

An observer of the scene told Europe1 that most Antifa members have spent the summer training for clashes with right-wingers, saying “they are not very focused on substantive topics.”
