French CCIF reconstitutes as CCIE in Belgium

February 16, 2021

The controversial Collective against Islamophobia in France (Collectif Contre l’islamophobie en France, CCIF), which was singled out as a body promoting “Islamist propaganda” (see also here) by French Interior Minister, Gerald Darmaninin the wake of the murder of Samuel Paty in late 2020, has effectively announced its reconstitution as the Collective against Islamophobia in Europe (Collectif Contre l’islamophobie en Europe, CCIE), based in Belgium.

The CCIF had previously announced its own dissolution, ahead of the Macron government’s decision to ban the organisation in France. The recent statement declares that it has “transferred its assets as well as a large part of its intellectual property and means of communication” to the new CCIE.
