News of the day. Six candidates present their program on agriculture at the national congress of the FNSEA
A short month after the Agricultural Show, several candidates again had the opportunity to present their program on the subject, Wednesday, March 30, on the occasion of the congress of the National Federation of Farmers’ Unions (FNSEA ).
Emmanuel Macron, taken by the Defense Council and the Council of Ministers organized on Wednesday morning, transmitted a video broadcast to the delegates. “Leading the transitions is necessary, but it must not make us lose sight of our nurturing mission”said Emmanuel Macron. “We have long opposed agriculture and ecology, but I believe in this reconciliation of agendas”he added, saying he wanted “amplify what we have put in place”.
For her part, the candidate of the National Rally, Marine Le Pen, launched: “My project: it is the sovereignty of our country. » The candidate was on the offensive against the “dumb shit from the ecologists” or the European Commission and the World Trade Organization (WTO), “which hinder any effective response to the current crisis”. His far-right rival Eric Zemmour (Reconquest!) repeated his ambition, present in his program, to exempt from gift and inheritance tax any family transmission of a farm.
“Eating good meat, raised in France, is essential and important”, argued communist Fabien Roussel. “We must defend French production, the quality of French products, it is not to be franchouillard”, he continued. For her part, the Republican candidate, Valérie Pécresse, intends to put an end to the European project Farm to Fork (“from the farm to the fork”), which, according to her, “organizes the decline of European production”. The last candidate to run for congress, Jean Lassalle castigated the alleged “agribashing”.
On the left, Jean-Luc Mélenchon (La France insoumise), Anne Hidalgo (Socialist Party) or Yannick Jadot (Europe Ecologie-Les Verts) have made the impasse. Part of the public did not fail to boo the three candidates when their refusal to participate in the congress was announced, in the Micropolis room in Besançon.
The picture of the day. Guillaume Herbaut’s campaign diary
For four weeks, the photographer Guillaume Herbaut publishes in The worldevery day, a photo that tells the atmosphere of France during this presidential campaign.
“It’s Chernobyl here. An industrial Chernobyl. » Patrice Sinoquet, CFDT delegate, visits the abandoned premises of the Whirlpool company in Amiens, with his colleague Frédéric Chantrelle, on March 24. They accompanied the departure of the three hundred workers who made clothes dryers: “We made conventional breaks at 57 so that people go up to 60 with their unemployment. » In front of a series of photos of colleagues, they remember Alain. He died of cardiac arrest two months after his dismissal.
“He was 58 years old. He had been thirty-five years here. He had bought a motorhome to enjoy life with the pennies of negotiation. He had enjoyed himself. He didn’t ride it. » They see the photo of Didier, the former union delegate who trained Frédéric Chantrelle. “Same, a cardiac arrest at 62, on February 5, 2016. He did not benefit from a year of retirement. » Policies ? They saw Marine Le Pen in the parking lot, during the presidential campaign in 2017, then Emmanuel Macron. “The big unpacking, for nothing. Wind, bogus buyers, on the other hand the sadness of people, it is still there. » Emmanuel Macron returned twice to Whirlpool. The factory closed anyway.
Phrase of the day. Willy Schraen: “No law that could damage hunting has been adopted in this five-year period”
He will vote Emmanuel Macron “from the first round”. Willy Schraen, president of the National Federation of Hunters, justified his position on Tuesday in an interview with the newspaper The Parisian by the fact that the outgoing Head of State “will put all his energy to answer [aux] requests » million hunters in France, as it has done during the past five years.
“No law (…) that could damage hunting has been adopted in this five-year period. Every time we had a problem to settle with a minister of ecology, he intervened,” had again defended Willy Schraen. The outgoing President of the Republic notably halved the price of the hunting license and reauthorized the traditional hunting of certain species of birds – a decision suspended by the Council of State.
The statements of the leader of the hunters annoyed the other candidates. “He has the right to say what he wants and vote what he wants, but, for all that, I do not believe that he can say that the hunters will vote for Mr. Macron”, reacted Jean-Luc Mélenchon, Wednesday, on France Inter.
“I regret that the president of the National Federation of Hunters always positions himself politically, a bit like a lobbyist, who comes to say “this president has done a lot for hunting”. This is not his job “, lamented Marine Le Pen on the Chassons.com site.
The archive of the day. In 2017, Manuel Valls betrayed his promise to support Benoît Hamon and sided with Emmanuel Macron
Five years ago, Manuel Valls dropped the socialist candidate Benoît Hamon to support Emmanuel Macron. Saying to take his responsibilities, he announced that he would vote for the leader of En Marche! in the first round of the 2017 presidential election to “take no risk for the Republic and for France”. The former Prime Minister justified himself by saying that François Fillon and Benoît Hamon could not be useful votes against the far right.
“If it is not a rallying, his choice is at least a denial. That of his commitment made, by participating in the January primary, to support his winner, whoever he is, “ can we read in an article of the World dated March 30, 2017.
“The historians of the future will doubtless dispute to establish who of François Hollande, Manuel Valls, Benoît Hamon or others, led to the explosion of the Socialist Party. One thing is certain, the former prime minister will have played his part in it,” write the journalists Bastien Bonnefous and Cédric Pietralunga.
The decision of Mr. Valls then provokes the anger of the Hamon camp. “Everyone now knows what a commitment signed on the honor of a man like Manuel Valls is worth: nothing”, reacts Arnaud Montebourg, describing his ex-colleague as“man without honor”. Patrick Mennucci also attacks the deputy of Essonne. Speaking directly to him on Twitterhe writes a definitive “You put us to shame. »
Questioned a few minutes after the announcement of the support of Mr. Valls, Mr. Macron immediately opposes an end of inadmissibility to his former head of government. ” I thank him [mais] I will be the guarantor of the renewal of faces, the renewal of practices”, explains the candidate. If Manuel Valls did not participate in the two governments of the Macron five-year term, the socialist Jean-Yves Le Drian will have finally remained minister without interruption for almost ten years.
