NÎMES The Gard left To The Aid Of The Human Rights League

At the initiative of the Communist Party and with the support of Europe Écologie les Verts, the Socialist Party, Together, La France insoumise, Génération.s, Denis Lanoy organized this Tuesday, April 25 in the courtyard of Prolé in Nîmes, a rally in support of the League for Human Rights (LDH).

The French Left came to the bedside of the LDH following the remarks of the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, invited to explain himself to the deputies, then the senators of the Law Commission, on the use of force by the police and the gendarmes during the demonstrations against the pension reform or in Sainte-Soline (Deux-Sèvres). The Minister declared: “I don’t know about the subsidy given by the State, but it deserves to be looked at within the framework of the actions that have been carried out. »

The evolution of policing in question
In the Gard, the Left and 25 associations mobilized this Tuesday, April 25 in the courtyard of the Prolé café, in Nîmes, in order to safeguard the associative world. Jean Launay denounced the Minister’s remarks in a particular context of the evolution of law enforcement in France in recent years: “The arrival in France of weapons of war such as LBDs and techniques of encirclement with in particular the motorized brigades is against the current of what is done in Europe which on the contrary favors maintaining order in de-escalation as in Denmark, Sweden or Germany”, insists the co-president of the Nîmes section of the LDH . Denis Lanoy, secretary of the Communist Party section of Nîmes, drives the point home: “The police actions underway in Mayotte are weakening the principles of the Republic to the point of flouting them. »

Protect The Community

According to him, certain associations play a fundamental role in preventing people from governing in circles. These are checks and balances that are in the minister’s sights. The representative of the Communist Party adds that Minister Gérald Darmanin’s remarks go against the very essence of these associations: “Instead of attacking counter-powers, they should on the contrary be protected. »

The Republican contract, put in place in December 2021, specifies that “respect for the laws of the Republic is binding on associations and foundations which must not undertake or incite any action manifestly contrary to the law, violent or likely to lead to serious disturbances to public order”. According to him, the text implies that from now on associations must not criticize the Government under penalty of losing their subsidies.

The Bed of The Far Right

Jean Launay, the representative of the LDH, strongly denounces this contract. He evokes the visit of the President of the Republic to Ganges (34) this Thursday, April 24. The Hérault prefecture had banned any “portable sound device” the day after the “casserolade” which had welcomed Emmanuel Macron during his visit to Alsace. “So you can find yourself banging on a saucepan, being arrested, fined and thus your association’s subsidies cut! It is to muzzle free expression, ”launches the former magistrate who concludes that all these draconian measures make the bed of the far right in France. “The Government spends its time chasing after the program of the National Rally (RN)”, he says, between shame and anger. In the meantime, in the Prolé courtyard, there is a way of living well together that we make last around a few words and a glass of friendship.
