Nearly 500 artists, including François Cluzet, Fabrice Luchini, Clara Luciani, Black M, Zazie or even Jane Birkin and her daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg, have signed a platform calling on people to vote for Emmanuel Macron “without illusions, without hesitation and without trembling” , in the second round of the presidential election. About fifty French athletes (including six Bretons) had done the same this week.
“On April 10, the far right, for the third time in the history of the Fifth Republic, is in the second round of the presidential election, at the gates of power. She has never been so close to winning”, note the signatories of this forum, who say they are “dismayed” because “the Republican front is cracking”.
“Accomplice of the head of the Kremlin”
“We cannot imagine, at the head of France, a candidate whose program remains that of xenophobia and withdrawal, a candidate who has made an alliance with totalitarian and warmongering powers”, they still write in this forum. which can be read in particular on Le Parisien (with the complete list of signatories), before evoking the Ukraine war and accusing Marine Le Pen of being “accomplice of the head of the Kremlin”. And to warn those who have announced that they will abstain in the second round or vote blank: “Let us remind on this subject, to those who are betting on a cohabitation to follow, that even if this were to happen, Marine Le Pen would remain, in in any case, commander of the armies”.
The signatories also express their fears for “the future of culture” or even “the climate emergency” if the candidate of the National Rally were elected.
Claiming to be “aware of [leur] citizen duty”, these personalities from cinema, theater, television, music or, more generally, culture, therefore affirm that they “will vote without any hesitation for Emmanuel Macron on April 24th”.
