About fifty nationalists organized by Lyon avec Jeanne (Lyon with Joan), including members of GUD Lyon, held a protest outside of a performance of “Jeanne au pûcher”, an anti-French play mocking Joan of Arc.

After assembling in front of the theater, local police attacked the protesters with batons, tear gas & mace. There were appeared to be no injuries or reports of arrests, & the demonstration continued despite the attempts of the police.
