“ACAB” is the acronym of the expression “All Cops Are Bastards”, which means in French: “All the cops are bastards”. This slogan, which has become a slogan for movements claimed to be the far left, is often used during social movements. The expression “Magnanville everywhere” refers to the murder of two police officers on June 13, 2016 in Magnanville in the Yvelines.
