A “secular defense” law against the Reconquest?

Last September 11, Eric Zemmur launched the Protect Our Children collective, denouncing what he called the “grand indoctrination” that he said would be the main cause of the “great replacement.”

“While waiting for us to be in power, I will tell you what to do today and without waiting for the next election, immediately, with your means: do not let anything go.” And he announced his creation “national network of vigilant parents”intends to be “the opposing force in the cultural battle” I want a big presence on earth, “digital army” he added (the domain name www.protegeons-nos-enfants.fr was submitted on August 31). Since then, three surveys of teachers have already been carried out: in Normandy, in the North and in Vendee.

Organizations of this type (other than digital, etc.) have already happened in the past. In September, 1909, the cardinals, archbishops, and bishops of France advocated a new form of organization—namely, “associations of the fathers of families”—with a clearly expressed purpose. : “You have the duty and the right to control the public school. You should know the masters who run it and the teaching they give there. Nothing placed in the hands and eyes of your children should escape your concern: books, notebooks, pictures, everything should be controlled by you. […]. We forbid the use of certain books in the schools, and forbid all believers to possess them, to read them, and to leave them in the hands of their children, which authority claims to have placed them upon them.

It finally ended in January 1914 when the Chamber of Deputies voted a series of provisions to “provide for the protection of secular schools.” Parents who prevent their children from participating in the school’s regular classes or using the books regularly used there will be fined for absenteeism (from two francs to fifteen gold francs). On the other hand, a person who puts financial or moral pressure on parents, decides to remove their child from school or prevent him from participating in regular school activities, will be punished with deprivation of liberty. from six days to one month, and from sixteen years to two hundred gold francs. Finally, anyone who interferes with or attempts to interfere with the regular operation of a public school will be subject to the same penalties, significantly increased if violence, insults or threats are involved.

It should also be noted that it took five years for the adoption of the 1914 law. From 1910 to 1913, many “secular defense” projects followed one another, but did not come to an end. The Third Republic also experienced procrastination before taking action…

Proposal in the framework of the discussion of the draft law “Unifying the principles of the Republic” at the end of October 2020 It aims to define the crime of obstructing the freedom of education and protecting teachers and education workers within the framework of the programs adopted by the Ministry of Education.s” lawsuit was filed. It consisted of one article: After the second paragraph of Article 131-1 of the Criminal Code, a new paragraph with the following content should be added: Attempts to prevent or obstruct the exercise of the freedom to teach in accordance with the educational goals determined by the Higher Council of Programs of National Education through pressure, threats, insults or intimidation are punishable by imprisonment for a period of one year and a fine of 15,000 manats. euro. »

This proposal was put forward by the Oise senator, Olivier Paccaud, assistant professor of history and geography, accompanied by about fifty senators, most of whom belonged to the Les Républicains group. He was ultimately rejected. However, in the current situation, it can be considered that it can gain new relevance.
