THE MOTHERS’ BRIGADE
La Brigade des Mères

Is a French grassroots movement launched by grieving mothers in the suburbs of Paris.
It was launched in 2014 in Sevran – the suburb that lost the most sons to jihadi indoctrination.
Since then, men and women from all walks of life, ages and religions have joined us.


Its founder, Nadia Remadna, is a social worker and a renowned whistleblower.
Born in France, she was raised in her father’s homeland, Algeria.
She has seen a country descend into fundamentalist madness during Algeria’s Dark Decade in the 90’s
Now she sees the same alarming signs all over again – this time in a country many people fled to for its freedom… France.
We are relentlessly working to break the vicious circle in order to prevent rampant oppression, violence, extremism and fundamentalism.

In January 2016 – a year after the Charlie Hebdo attacks – she published the book
« HOW I SAVED MY CHILDREN – We used to fear that our children would end up in delinquency
Now we fear they could become terrorists »

On December 7, 2016, France was shocked to discover in prime time – thanks to the brave testimony of Nadia and a fellow Arab mother, with a hidden camera – that in an increasing number of suburbs, women are not welcome anymore in cafés, and are threatened by some local men if they dare speak against it.

On March 19, 2017, Abdelghani Merah concluded a 40 day and Thousand kilometer walk for Peace round France to warn the youth against the lure of fundamentalist preachers and general hate.
He reached the Bataclan in Paris by foot from Marseilles, to pay homage to the victims of terrorism – among which are three children and four adults whose lives were stolen on that very date five years ago by a man he wishes had never been his brother.
