They number thirty-September Thirty-seven co-host associations for AKI, which we find a detailed list on the official website of the movement, and who embody diversity: More gay marriage without Homovox represent anti-gay gay marriage, while Muslims Children Son of France or speak on behalf of Muslims. And there’s something for everyone: a call for childcare professionals, an association for the Young Family, a group of lawyers, and even a “European Association for a new feminism.”
The Monde.fr wanted to check if this diversity corresponded to reality. We have adopted a systematic approach, verifying the existence of each of the thirty co-host associations: who is responsible? Do they have a website? Since when? Who edits? Are they recorded in the Official Journal? These questions allowed us to build a table detailing the responses for each association. It is available in full here.
In appearance, AKI is for large segments of the population. Only in appearance. Because in reality, many of these movements are empty shells which have no existence. For others, they are almost all related to the Church, either directly or by the commitments of their leaders.

Trying to make a typology, there is a third of associations are in fact as “empty shells”, which either have no recognizable legal existence level (inclusion in the Official Journal), or not have no Web (no website or no mention in the news for off AKI).
Empty shells: it is first of all collective created to “stick” a spokesman for the AKI. So frigid Looney has its “Collective for a Sustainable Humanity”, which consists mainly of a site created in spring 2012, and in which we find, in addition to Virginia Tellenne aka Looney frigid, others responsible for AKI, as Bongibault Xavier, Laurence Cheng-Reynes, Elizabeth Montfort and Beatrice Bourges.
Same for more free gay marriage group allegedly led by Mr Bongibault, which consists mainly of a Facebook page “liked” a few thousand times. Ditto for the left for the Republican marriage Laurence Cheng-Reynes, or to David and Eugenia, Lionel Lumbroso, also an old friend of Mrs. Tellenne. These are also not hide the look “empty shell” of their structures, as they had said in December Yagg and Mediapart.
The true-false organizations of “civil society” we have also created a category of “civil society” to associations representing professional categories or special interests. Within this, we conducted a further breakdown to distinguish between pre-existing movements in AKI for all ad hoc movements created for this occasion, and movements recently created (since 2012), which may be responsible clearly linked to the church in one way or another.
But other collective bespoke have emerged, which are often only names without much reality. Thus, a Doctors and pediatricians for children, which has neither officially registered association or Internet site, and that is found through a Google search, in reference to AKI for all.
In the same vein include Family Mediterranean, National Republican identity, or AP21 supposedly a “Asssociation of psychologists,” which is not registered in the OJ and of which there is no trace online. As for the demonstration of lawyers, it is mostly a call to show web page.
Alternatively, Lawyers for Children is registered as an association in 2008, but has no record of activity since. It is part of a “collective for the child” also cited among the organizing associations, and in which there are various right-Beatrice Bourges, former candidate for Versailles, former parliamentary assistant of UMP Franck Borotra and one of spokesman for the AKI whose name comes up, like others, very often in our investigation.
2 / Recent SITES AND OFTEN ANONYMOUS
Other interesting information: the number of sites that have chosen not to give the surname of the purchaser of the domain name. This information, which allows us to know who is the owner of the site, can be hidden. What has been selected to eight associations.
Galaxy organizations that drive for AKI have a common characteristic: many of these movements are recent.
Nine were born in 2012, one in 2011, and three are from the year 2013. Among them, Muslim Children, one of the last group to date. Established in Lyon, it is directed by Abderrahmane Rabah Ait-frame in transportation, “friend” Facebook with Young active UMP Rh? Do, UDI Doubs and the National Association of Friends of Nicolas Sarkozy. The website of the Muslim Children has several video testimonies of Muslims opposed to gay marriage. These videos were posted on YouTube, on account of a “G Bes,” which is none other than Gauthier Bes Berc, a literature student, himself secretary and webmaster of Cosette and Gavroche association and tenant of a Catholic blog, “The basement window and stained glass.
The same “solidarity” between movements is also observed about Homovox. This “collective”, he also created very recently (November 2012) around Bongibault Xavier, was “advised” to its website, by Jean-Baptiste Maillard, member and employee of the Emmanuel Community, which boasts on his Twitter account “up sites faster than his shadow.” More recently, some bloggers have Homovox accused of using actors to produce false testimony videos. Accusations that belies the site.
3 / RELIGION ubiquitous
Manif for is apolitical and non-religious. Yet it is easy to see that the Catholic Church has a strong presence among its host associations. There were twelve of obedience explicit Christian associations: Families of France, former association and already committed against the PACS in 1998, the National Confederation of Catholic Family Associations, the National Federation of Protestant family associations and the Cler “love and family” Christian education association with sexuality, or Alliance Vita, an association created by Christine Boutin and fight against abortion, with sometimes questionable methods …
Other organizations move more hidden. Thus, the call of childcare professionals, an association created in 2005 [not 2012 as we erroneously stated], is directed by Jeremiah? Brunet me, moreover, diocesan director of Catholic education in the region Centre. On its website, the call recalls Beatrice Bourges, or Emmanuel Sapin, himself at the head of a movement of anti-gay marriage and religious communities close to doctors (see below).
Same for all the class to the wedding, including the domain name refers to a “socio-political observatory” in fact dependent on the bishop of Toulon, and “diocesan authority responsible to educate, inform and promote speech of the Church on social issues. ”
We may also mention the Enfants du Mekong, which was led by religious traditionalists columnist near Ren?? Foucart. And remember that the press secretary for the AKI, the Ludovine Rochere, author of a book on Dr. Jer? Lejeune me, ic? Only anti-abortion (published by the Emmanuel Community) , is also the former press officer of the Conference of Bishops of France.
4 / NAMES THAT CROSS
The weight of the Church is felt more indirectly in other organizations involved in AKI for all, mainly due to the commitments of their leaders. Thus, the group Youth for the family, including the site on 7 December 2012, a spokesman for Louis Manaranche, also “committed to the parish of Saint-Etienne-du-Mont,” which include texts on Christians collections (there is also an active member of the social club Right Laurent Wauquiez).
The Lyon Walking collective solidarity is, in turn, led by Jean-Baptiste Labouche, a young entrepreneur, but his two other organizers, and Tanguy Colrat Paul Bouffard, respectively founder of a movement of thought called “alternative Catholic News “and” parish relay “of the university. This group is also split, since it is the source of Running for Children, another organization cited by the AKI for all. The two return addresses on the same site.
You can also ask about the collective Adoptees, created in January 2012 and whose head, Anne-B??atrice Truchi, is an active member of the Association of Parents of free education from Saint-Fran? Ois Eylau.
Some names often come back. Thus, behind Cosette and Gavroche, “association” (Unofficial) created in October 2012 by Rapha? The Nogier, acupuncturist and various former legislative candidate right in Ardeche, there is another candidate variety right, Louis Benedict, but the lawyer Aude Mirkovic. The same lawyer that has seen and heard a lot in the media, is also in the collective for the child Beatrice Bourges.
Same thing for Call physicians childhood and adolescence, a group of doctors led by Professor Emmanuel Sapin, which are also found in hostile symposia abortion. The latter acted in 2009 at a conference organized by the Emmanuel Community, which aims to Catholic evangelization “everyday”.
5 / A COMMUNITY THAT BACK OFTEN
The Emmanuel Community, which brings together 8,000 faithful, is in the trend of “charismatic renewal”. This organization, which claims a mission of evangelization, is most often around the AKI for all. Thus, it is an employee of the Emmanuel Community, Jean-Baptiste Maillard, who bought the domain name Homovox, another supposed to represent the collective oppose gay marriage gay. Every summer, the Community holds prayer meetings at its headquarters in Paray-le-Monial, where you can meet Tugdual Derville (Alliance Vita) or frigid Looney.
A meeting organized by the mayor, Jean-Marc Nesmes at Paray-le-Monial in 2012 for the Saints, drew media attention because it was mentioned number of men and women politicians, including the Laurent Wauquiez UMP or PS mayor of Quimper, Bernard Poignant. Most were guests at this “meeting of the heads of networks representing the Christian involvement in politics” and not are not made, but you could see, in the heart of the fundamentalist movement ty Civitas, frigid Looney or Christian Vanneste, as was reported Rue89.
And the Emmanuel Community, which is not yet among the host associations of AKI for all, in his book published a special issue of its journal The 1visible, entirely devoted to the demonstration on 24 March. She is also editor of Elizabeth Montfort, one of the thinking of AKI for all heads. We can also mention the seminars Bioethics organized every year always in Paray-le-Monial, where intervened in 2012, Elizabeth Montfort or Tugdual Derville.
6 / SOMETIMES RADICAL ORGANIZATIONS
In the long list of community organizations and organizers also are more conservative organizations. So, is mentioned Dialogue and Humanism, an association whose president is Jean-Paul Bolufer, former chief of staff Christine Boutin, considered conservative Christian – he denies.
Another case that raises questions, in the presence of the associations of AKI for SOS Papa, which campaigns for the rights of fathers in separation, but some members of which are presented as close theses “masculinist” (hostile to women ). Or evangelical Protestant Committee for the human dignity of Daniel Rivaud, too often classified as traditionalist movements, and found in the same “tour bioethics” anti-abortion where Pr Fir included.
Another site intriguing that the association New European feminism. This movement, chaired by Elizabeth Montfort, former MEP of the Movement for France of Philippe de Villiers, is to fight against the theories of its kind in Europe. Mrs. Montfort, for its part, was in 2002 against “the trivialization of abortion” in the EU. Again, it can be noted that the creator of the site of the New European feminism, Pierre-Marie Boutet, and his company, Clasis have also realized that Alliance Vita, but also the site of the Emmanuel Community.
Elizabeth Montfort was also a member of the Foundation of political service organization established in 1992 to “invite” Christians of all backgrounds to promote the core values ??of the Judeo-Christian civilization “‘, which publishes the site including political freedom, and which is sometimes cited as close to a conservative branch of the Church, Opus Dei. Among other relatives of the “AKI for all” who are members of the foundation include Fran? ois-Xavier Bellamy, Mayor deputy of Versailles, and Pierre-Olivier Arduin, an employee of the Diocese of Toulon (which publishes the collective website All for marriage).
One can also question the Son of France. This association, founded in 2012 by Camel Bechikh, member of the Union of Islamic Organizations of France (UOIF) and glimpse at conferences FN, but also engaged in the humanitarian flotilla that tried to reach Gaza in 2010. The movement wants to be close to the sovereignist Chev??nement and Nicolas Dupont-Aignan positions. It is also sponsored by Robert M??nard, former secretary general of Reporters Without Borders, which approximates more and more of the “hard” right. And on its website, Son of France devotes several notes praise Alain de Benoist, thinker of the “new right” of the 1970s and one of the founders of Greece (Research Group for European civilization), crucible of movements European extreme right.
We can conclude by saying that the existence of these structures sometimes tenuous, and often related to religion are still managed to gather 340,000 demonstrators in the streets of Paris on January 12, according to police figures. Is one of the three largest events for 30 years.
