    Story 5: Slap, Macron caught up by the yellow vests – 10/06
    Two days after the facts, the trial in immediate appearance of Damien Tarel, the young man who slapped Emmanuel Macron during a trip to the Drôme, takes place this Thursday afternoon in Valence. Asked about the gesture itself, Damien Tarel claims the symbolic dimension of the slap inflicted on Emmanuel Macron “I think a lot of people feel this injustice. I felt invested”, he assumed at the helm, “invested” by the “yellow vests” and the “French people in general”. We talk about it with: Antoine Delcourt, at the Valence penitentiary (Drôme). Amandine Atalaya, political columnist at BFMTV. Jean-Sébastien Ferjou, publication director of the Atlantico site. Michaël Darmon, head of the political service for Europe 1. And Gaël Sliman, president and co-founder of the Odoxa polling institute.

“Faced with this climate of hatred, racist and attacking individual and collective freedoms, we have collectively decided to organize on Saturday June 12 a first major national day of demonstration and mobilization which will take place locally”, they write.

Noting a “alarming political and social climate”, in which “to ally with the extreme right or to take again its ideas is not any more a prohibition”, and or “the attacks on freedoms and social rights are on the rise”, the signatories deplore the adoption of “liberticidal laws” who “organize an authoritarian society of surveillance and control”. “In addition, if some of these laws stigmatize part of the population because of their religion, others target them because of their militant activity”, they say.
