According to the prefecture, up to 10,000 people are expected this Saturday, May 4 in the afternoon in Châteauroux to pay a final tribute to Matisse. The 15-year-old was killed by a boy of the same age in late April.

The mayor of the town of Châteauroux, in Indre, announced last Tuesday that a white march would take place this Saturday, May 4, to pay tribute to Matisse. The meeting at 3:30 p.m. in this small town of 43,000 inhabitants should bring together between 3,000 and 10,000 people, said the prefect.

From Place La-Fayette, the procession plans to head towards the school where the boy attended, the family's home and finally the restaurant of Matisse's parents, like a pilgrimage in the footsteps of the teenager. killed on April 27 with a knife by another of the same age.

The day before this march, Friday May 3, nationalist activists displayed tricolor flags and banners in front of Châteauroux town hall. One of the participants, dressed all in black, read a text echoing the death of Matisse, concluding with these words: “Afghans, out!”, reports France Bleu Berry.

This explicitly nationalist conclusion refers to the nationality of the perpetrator of the crime. The mobilization took place even though Matisse's father had repeatedly called for his son's death not to be taken up politically.
