In a very turbulent social climate, more and more elected officials, in favor of pension reform, are suffering violence against their offices and personal intimidation.


The words are raw and brutal.

In a letter received and published on Twitter this Friday evening, the president of the deputies Renaissance Aurore Bergé denounced threats against her infant born in October.

“To be insulted, to be intimidated, it was already intolerable.

But to come to threaten my 4 month old baby...It's infamous.

Just infamous

”, was indignant the deputy of Yvelines.

On the photo posted online, the offensive content of the missive in question is clearly legible.

His offspring is so small, he won't be able to run away (...) Fire, baseball bat, iron bar... Everything is good.

(…) So be careful every day and especially at night

, ”writes the anonymographer, particularly targeting the personal home and the parliamentary office of Aurore Bergé.

“The pinnacle of ignominy has been reached!

Support for our colleague who sees his baby threatened by limitless individuals.

These threats against elected officials must stop, all of this is intolerable”,

condemned his counterpart from RN Marine Le Pen in the evening.

The elected representative from the Ile-de-France is not the only elected representative of the majority to have received an attack of the same ilk.

Her Renaissance colleague from Yvelines Marie Lebec also shared a letter on Twitter this Friday as a warning pointing to the parliamentarian herself and her family.

“To those who insult, threaten and intimidate, we will not give in to brutality,”

simply replied the Francilienne.

In the very explosive social context of recent weeks, largely linked to the pension reform and the use of 49.3 by the executive, threats and violence are increasing against elected officials in favor of the bill of government.

During his television interview on TF1 and France 2 on March 22, the President of the Republic had, moreover, banged his fist on the table.

"

When groups use extreme violence to attack elected officials of the Republic (...) without rules, because they are not happy, then there, they are no longer in the Republic

", had scolded Emmanuel Macron.

According to information from

Figaro

,

17 deputies had already been targeted between last Sunday and Wednesday.

Seeing with a good eye the postponement of the starting age to 64, these parliamentarians were very logically labeled majority or LR.

The calculation came from the Ministry of the Interior, the signaling unit of the Lower House, and the services of the National Assembly.

On BFMTV last Sunday, the president of the Palais Bourbon said she was "

concerned

" by the violence that was rising against the representatives of the nation.

"It indicates that democracy is not going well because some people believe that it is necessary to go through violence against those who engage",

had analyzed Yaël Braun-Pivet.

In a press release published the next day, she had also announced the National Assembly would “

systematically bring civil action as soon as a deputy chooses to file a complaint.

“And to warn against the phenomenon:”

Each time a parliamentarian is threatened or attacked, the institution as a whole is affected, and with it our democracy.
