A town hall targeted by an attack in Corsica – France

“The GCC tag (Ghjuventù Clandestina Corsa, Corsican clandestine organization for the independence of the island, editor’s note) was discovered on the facade of the building

“, indicated Nicolas Septe, public prosecutor of Ajaccio. On the blackened steps of the building, the gendarmes and deminers also found a bottle of gas.

According to the first acts of investigation, “the facade and the steps of the town hall were sprayed with gasoline before a fire”, specified a judicial source.

“Feeling of sadness”

This Thursday morning, it is a “feeling of sadness” which prevailed in the mayor of the commune, Pascal Miniconi. His first deputy, nationalist, Paul Miniconi, firmly condemned the chosen target, recalling that “the town hall is everyone’s tool”.

Increasing attacks

In recent months, attacks of this type have multiplied in Corsica, but they have mainly targeted second homes.

Tuesday, the first anniversary of the death of Yvan Colonna, who died as a result of his attack in prison, where he was serving a life sentence for the assassination of the prefect Érignac, the Corsican National Liberation Front (FLNC), an underground independence movement, claimed responsibility for 17 of these attacks and once again denounced the State’s policy on the island.

At the beginning of February, it was Ghjuventu Clandestina Corsa, announcing its creation, which claimed 17 other actions against second homes, buildings under construction, construction companies and tourist establishments.

* The GCC acronym appeared for the first time on August 4, 2022, on the facade of a villa in Bastelicaccia (Corse-du-Sud) targeted by arson.
