He pointed to a “problem of insecurity in France. In recent years, there has been an increase in violence: an increase in homicides, a certain number of demonstrations systematically turn to violence… ”. This rise in violence is linked to “a loss of state authority: state symbols are increasingly contested and being a Republican is worrisome. ”
To end violence, end impunity: “More and more people think they are untouchable. When a sentence is decided, it must be applied. The sanction must be fair and proportionate, but it must be sure. “Prison places must be built, today,” part of the world of the “judicial left” considers that a “numerus clausus” is needed in prisons. However, if there is not enough prison space, it must be built. ”
To restore state authority, there must be a will on the part of the President of the Republic: “We need a strong voice. I see that Emmanuel Macron has been President of the Republic for three years, that he has said little on the subject and that little progress has been made. “Security policy must be clear:” in the field of security, the ‘at the same time’ cannot work. You cannot have an interior minister explaining that he is going to be tough and at the same time a justice minister who thinks there should be no one in the prisons. ”
The vice-president of the Île-de-France region also denounced the government’s communication on Covid-19, “the government’s mistake was to lie about the masks”. This error rendered his communication obsolete.
Finally, Frédéric Péchenard evoked the situation of our movement: “we have just passed the municipal elections which went well for the Republicans. We also had a back-to-school season that went well with more than 1,000 young people at Port-Marly. ”
