The Head of State is continuing his field visits. Emmanuel Macron is expected in the Doubs, at the Château de Joux, Thursday, April 27, where he must celebrate the abolition of slavery during the day. As with each trip by the President of the Republic and his ministers since the promulgation of his highly contested pension reform, a demonstration is planned.
The prefect of Doubs, Jean-François Colombet, had issued a decree on Tuesday prohibiting demonstrations between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Thursday in the town of La Cluse-et-Mijoux, where the head of state is expected in the middle of the day. The decree mentioned in particular “the significance of the terrorist threat on national territory”.
This decree had been the subject of three appeals for interim release before the administrative court of Besançon, which was to examine it Thursday morning in public hearing. But the prefect finally decided to withdraw his decree, announced the court in an email sent to Agence France-Presse. “The withdrawal being retroactive, the decree of April 25 is considered as never having existed (…). successful claimants”says the email.
“Plan something to make noise”
The CGT du Doubs has already announced that the inter-union of Pontarlier would give “a concert of saucepans at the foot of the Château de Joux”. “Plan something to make noise to make people hear that 64 is still no!” », the union said in an appeal to its members and supporters. Access to the castle, which overlooks the region in the Jura m***if, should be blocked to protesters. Emmanuel Macron must pay tribute to Toussaint Louverture, a figure in the fight against slavery, who died in the fortress of Franche-Comté in April 1803.
On Tuesday, the Orleans administrative court had suspended a similar decree from the prefect of Loir-et-Cher prohibiting any demonstration during the visit of Emmanuel Macron to Vendôme, even though the visit of the Head of State was in progress.
