Génération Identitaire: Vigilantes in the Métro

An extreme-right groupuscule called Génération Identitaire has begun what it picturesquely calls tournées antiracailles in the Paris Métro, having tested the practice in Lille and Lyon. These vigilante patrolmen wear yellow plastic jackets and distribute leaflets. They claim not to be looking for trouble, their only desire being to call the attention of the authorities to what they say is a mounting problem of security on the subway.
