A tense weekend for Breton deputies – France

Returning from Paris on Friday evening, Éric Bothorel followed the general assembly of Stade Paimpolais, “as planned”. Saturday morning, the deputy (Renaissance) was on the terrace, in contact with the inhabitants of Paimpol (22), “without shaving the walls”. Against the backdrop of a 49.3 which made him oscillate “between disappointment and anger”, the elected macronist wanted to show a serene face to his constituents from Trégor-Goëlo, this weekend. Despite obvious tension, linked to his support for pension reform. After the banners evoking “democratic denial” and inviting him to “vote the motion of censure”, under the windows of his Lannion office, at the end of the week, aggressive tags were painted on the walls, this Sunday morning.

“There would be nothing worse than giving in to the threat. It is rather the time to go and exchange with the population, who are only asking for that. Here, people address me with respect,” he said the day before. “No intimidation can divert me from the exercise of my mandate”, he reaffirms, this Sunday afternoon, in a tweet.

“I am not afraid for myself”

This “uncomfortable position” of the deputies of the presidential majority, the Landernéenne Graziella Melchior has also had the bitter experience of it over the past three days. While the member for the 5th constituency of Finistère was still in Paris, two individuals tried to force the front door of her parliamentary office in Landerneau. They then tagged his plaque pink and wrote threats on the front door.

The elected official filed a complaint on Friday. She also saw fit to rearrange her weekend schedule. The meeting-debate on the end of life, scheduled for Monday, March 20, is postponed to a later date. The Saturday morning appointments at the office were held by telephone. Each of the trips maintained (meals for the elders, commemorations of March 19, 1962) took place under the watchful eye of the gendarmes. “I am not afraid for myself but, given this latent anger that we feel rising in the population, caution is in order. Aurore Bergé addressed the Minister of the Interior in this sense. For the moment, I am being questioned more than attacked. But it’s not like that everywhere.”

“Nightmares All Night”

In Vannes, Anne Le Hénanff admits having returned “to take refuge in her constituency”, after this episode of 49.3, which she assumes, despite everything. “I left Paris on Thursday evening to take the pulse of the population as soon as possible. It was very violent and destabilizing, this pressure and this brouhaha in the Hemicycle. I had nightmares of it all night. On the market, Saturday, the deputy Horizons, who would have voted yes to the pension reform, claims to have heard “the concern of people scared by the political crisis which is looming”. Unlike Éric Bothorel and Graziella Melchior, the elected official will be at the National Assembly to observe the vote on the motions of censure, at 4 p.m. on Monday. “I don’t want place 211 to be empty, I want to be able to report to my constituents”.

In Brest, no “Breizh lab” around Jean-Yves Le Drian, Saturday morning. Even after “a marathon week”, MP (Horizons) Jean-Charles Larsonneur kept his other appointments. Starting with a walk on the Saint-Louis market, this Sunday morning. He had chosen abstention on the pension reform. “That or saying yes, it’s all the same!” » shoots a passer-by, without stopping. No animosity but many questions, on his way.

“Macron made his misfortune with this 49.3,” said Françoise, retired from the public service. “The population is very up, there will be breakage”, continues Patrick, 72 years old. François, a 57-year-old independent, would like Jean-Charles Larsonneur to encourage a citizens’ initiative referendum, failing to support a motion of censure on Monday. He can see that “it will get tense this Monday”. And asks: “Mr. Deputy, what are you going to do now? »
