Luttons Unis Contre l'Islamisation de l'Europe
Luttons Unis Contre l'Islamisation de l'Europe (LUCIDE) which translates as 'United Struggle Against the Islamisation of Europe' appears to have been formed in the wake of the January 2015 Paris attacks and not long after a similalry named movement Patriotic Europeans Against Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA) rose to prominence in Germany.
LUCIDE's facebook page was set up on the evening of 7 January 2015, the day twelve people were murdered at the offices of the magazine Charlie Hebdo. By 19 January it had approximately 4,200 'likes'. It shared pictures bearing the slogan #JeSuisLucide, attempting to piggyback on the popularity of the hashtag #JeSuisCharlie.
LUCIDE announced a rally to be held in Lyon on 8 January 2015, under the slogan 'No more deaths! Islam out of Europe'.
A 9 January 2015 rally appears to have been held in the city of Rouen, claimed by the administrators of the LUCIDE facebook page, which posted pictures, as an affiliated action.
On 16 January 2015 LUCIDE held another demonstration in Lyon.
