This Sunday, September 25, the president of the Occitania area, Carol Delga, organizes “Les Rencontres de la gauche” in Bram in Aude. She intends to defend “leftists who search options for his or her fellow residents” and needs to supply “a brand new deal on jobs, schooling, the hospital system and the local weather emergency.”
What does the Sunday assembly in Brama have in frequent with the Occitanie?
This can be a demonstration of the left that works, and never simply in declarations with punch and extra. It’s the left that seeks options for its fellow residents, a brand new settlement on work, schooling, the hospital system and the local weather emergency.
You had been crucial of Nupes throughout its inception: do you keep on that line at present?
As for PS’s alliance with La France insoumise, my evaluation is at all times the identical. Within the legislative elections, Nupes gained the opposition’s success. Politics modifications individuals’s lives in the event that they win elections. There we attain the glass ceiling. Within the countryside, to be clear, this was a bonus for the far proper. Somebody like François Ruffin admits this himself, and it is a subject I warned about just a few years in the past in PS. Sadly, they did not hear me.
As for you, it was your opposition to Nyupam that made you extra identified to the general public…
It’s true that at present I’m benefiting from stronger publicity. A lot the higher that it permits me to speak about actual matters and get my toes moist someplace: sure, let’s discuss work, let’s discuss concerning the “uberization” of society, let’s discuss a risky profession… attempt to implement one other type of politics that’s not sound chew coverage.
What do you consider the controversy between “remaining staff” and “remaining advantages”?
The platform is made by Fabien Roussel, I might signal it. I believe that work buildings, that is what liberates. As for the dialog about the fitting to laziness, I don’t really feel such a want amongst our fellow residents … Quite the opposite, I really feel an actual want for work that’s chosen, however not tolerated and distinguished by durations of life. life.
What do you consider the Quatennens case? Ought to he be punished?
Once we are accountable, help at all times goes to the victims. I can’t touch upon a private matter, however I used to be very shocked that the primary response of Jean-Luc Mélenchon and different leaders of La France insoumise was not in favor of the sufferer of violence. With Jean-Luc Mélenchon, we now have extra variations than we now have in frequent. It has solely gotten worse in current days. His tweet about Sweden and the standard left failing to face as much as the far proper is shameful when you know the way exhausting elected Republicans are working on this nation. What makes us completely different from Insoumis is that they’re individuals who provoke however do not actually supply concrete options. What’s their evaluation for our fellow residents?
What’s your relationship with Olivier Faure?
We now have been speaking since July. As he himself mentioned, “I’ve no calling to vary the minds of socialists who, like Carol, disagree with Nupé.” In my opinion, I proceed to hint my furrow within the socialist household. I am not in a guerrilla warfare, I’ve neither style nor time. I’m in a strong place, straight and at work.
Are you going to attempt to affect the PS line on this alliance?
On this new tutorial 12 months, we now have different priorities: we should exhibit that we provide options to the French. The federal government brings nothing when it waves the pink rag over unemployment insurance coverage and pension reform. Then again, when Olivier Faure proposed taxing superprofits, I mentioned I agreed. I additionally requested PS to contemplate free transportation to deal with the local weather emergency and buying energy.
You talked about pension reform. What must be achieved, in your opinion?
That is not pressing: reform and large funding within the college or hospital system appears extra vital to me, as does the simplification of procedures to facilitate the manufacturing of renewable vitality. As for eager to push by way of a easy modification to the Social Safety invoice, that appears to me somewhat harmful and counterproductive. Even such allies of the president as François Bayrou say so! Lastly, in essence, I believe that Emmanuel Macron doesn’t sufficiently think about the difficulty of the complexity of some professions. Let’s not neglect that the life expectancy of a employee is seven years lower than that of a supervisor, that is very unfair. Due to this fact, I’m categorically in opposition to the retirement age of 65 years.
Confronted with rising vitality costs, is the federal government doing sufficient?
Other than the short-term measures which were taken, I believe, initially, that the difficulty is to revive our vitality sovereignty. That’s the reason, I repeat, we should speed up the manufacturing of renewable vitality sources: offshore windmills, methanization and even hydroelectricity.
What about nuclear?
I’ve at all times been in favor of an vitality stability that features nuclear vitality. Right now, the precedence is primarily to discover a extra optimum functioning of our nuclear fleet. And in the long run, the share of renewable vitality ought to develop quicker than nuclear. I’m not a supporter of the development of recent nuclear reactors.
