03 Aug 2023

"On the night of Friday, June 30, the Jean-Macé library in Metz, northeastern France, caught fire and burned to the ground in two hours. Nearly 110,000 documents went up in smoke.

The evening before, in Marseille (southern France), the Alcazar theater, converted into a public library in 2004, was the target of attempted arson.

In Cergy-Pontoise, a suburb northwest of Paris, rioters attempted to set fire to the UGC cinema on the night of June 28.

Similar incidents were reported on the nights of June 28 and 29, at the libraries of Rillieux-la-Pape and Vaulx-en-Velin, two suburbs of Lyon."
