Saturday Rally at Place du Poufre: Uniting Against Racism

Associations, trade unions and political parties in Sète and the Thau basin.

This Saturday, July 15, at 10 a.m., in front of the town hall of Sète, place du Poufre, a collective of associations, trade unions, political parties and other committees (1) calls for a citizen, unitary and peaceful rally to express its “refusal of systemic racism in society” and its “willingness to fight discriminatory and security public policies” is it indicated in a press release.

“The country is in mourning and angry”

Following the death of Nahel, “the country is in mourning and angry, supports Pierre Confavreux, local representative of the League of Human Rights. “We want to show that if we want to avoid fights, there are measures of appeasement to be taken by the government… instead of carrying out regressive public policies which make the bed of the far right” he adds. This collective is also mobilizing to demand “another sharing of wealth” and a real “fight against climate change…”

This gathering is part of the follow-up to the national appeal of July 5 signed by a hundred organizations, “marches and rallies that took place from Saturday July 8″ and the action launched by the National Coordination against police violence on this date of July 15.”
