Until then inaudible, the left will try to regain control over immigration, a subject on which it is traditionally uncomfortable. Monday, December 11, when the examination of the bill begins in public session at the National Assembly, environmentalists will table a motion to reject the text. If this motion is adopted – the right and the far right maintain doubt about their intentions – environmentalists are betting that the government will abandon its text. “It will be such a political failure that he will have no choice”says the one who will table the motion for the environmental group, Benjamin Lucas.

If rejected, the executive would have other options. The text could be sent to the Senate or the government could convene a joint committee (CMP), whose composition is rather favorable to the right. “If the motion passes, it stops. France will be better offwants to believe the deputy La France insoumise (LFI) Raquel Garrido. Otherwise, it will be time to fight the lies and the clichés step by step. »

While Jean-Luc Mélenchon ended up decreeing the end of the New Ecological and Social Political Union (Nupes), the four left-wing parties held two meetings last week to show their opposition to the text of the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, outlining at the same time the contours of a new union.

Fighting “these stale ideas”

Monday December 4, at La Bellevilloise in Paris, the president of the environmental group in the National Assembly, Cyrielle Chatelain, wanted to deconstruct the idea according to which France “wouldn’t have done anything” in matters of immigration. “We have never made life so hard for those who decide to build their lives in France”, she asserted. At his side, Boris Vallaud judged that Gérald Darmanin had multiplied “concessions to the right”.

Even more emblematic, the meeting in Saint-Ouen, Thursday December 7, brought together the first secretary of the PS, Olivier Faure, the environmentalist senator Yannick Jadot and above all two LFI elected officials at odds with the leadership of their party, Clémentine Autain and Raquel Garrido. Olivier Faure called for “Oath of Saint-Ouen” : “We will never separate until we have conquered these stale ideas. » This last meeting also had the gift of exasperating the management of LFI. On X, the elected representative of Val-d’Oise Paul Vannier denounced “the return of Holland” and complained about “the use of the LFI logo without the movement having been requested”.
