Residents of France who work across the border in Geneva have become the targets of a virulent anti-migrant campaign calling for their houses and cars to be burned.
A pamphlet distributed this month outside the Geneva University Hospitals calls for the elimination of “this border scum”.
“They are everywhere… in a number that far exceeds the tolerable quota, with their arrogance, their pollution, their contempt, their insolence and their privilege,” the pamphlet said. “Total war is declared,” said the tract, which was reprinted by the local Socialist Party in a newsletter expressing alarm over the document’s violent nationalism. “Burn their houses, their cars. Border workers, get out.”
