Do you know anything about the French antifascist gang called the Red Warriors?

came up on Tumblr with this description:
"Members of the Red Warriors, an antifascist gang in France, 1985. Red Warriors used violent force to remove Neo Nazi gangs from France and provide safe spaces for immigrants during the rise of white nationalism and an outbreak of violent crime against people of colour. They formed a squat called “L.U.S.I.N.E” and were considered the most effect gang to counter nazi violence, working to instill fear in their opposition. "
The story sounds pretty interesting, but my Google-fu is completely failing me for finding any more information--or confirmation, for that matter. I have a feeling that a working knowledge of French would be very helpful in this search.
So, how true is this? Are there any resources where I could read more about this? Thanks!
