La Bande a Jesus operates in the French city of Rouen and surroundings. As many French activists they hate the publicity-industry. But their tactic goes a bit further than the quite inoffensive adbusting. As shows this film:


(Allumez les Feux means: light the fires, or (campaignslogan for roadsafety:) put on your lights)

"La Bande à Jésus casse tout. Ils sont entrés en guerre contre la société marchande et la publicité. Une nouvelle lutte commence..."




Publicity multinational J.C. Decaux has had to book some 90.000 euros damage in the last month.

According to the Belgian newspaper Derniere Heure (http://www.dhnet.be/infos/faits-divers/article/175411/la-bande-a-jesus.html) thegroup is very eager to communicatie via the media with the public. And they use quite some biblical language, as they claim to base themselves on a call the Pope recently sent out against consumerism. Therefore they declared the end of all publicity:

"Le temps est donc venu, mes très chers frères, mes très chères soeurs, au nom de l'anti-consumérisme défendu par Sa Sainteté le Pape, d'en appeler à la fin de la publicité, y compris par la force. Dieu est éternellement paix et amour. Mais les hommes d'après la chute ont livré la création à sa perte".
