She has not yet had time to file a complaint but intends to deal with it very soon. Émilie Chazette-Guillet (LFI), who was a senatorial candidate, remains shocked by the attack she suffered last Tuesday with two other activists of the Nupes, during a towing operation for the march against racism and police violence. The facts took place in the late afternoon at the station of Brunoy (Essonne).
"I was accompanied by Nathalie, a disabled activist who has a cane, and Mehdy, a 21-year-old activist," she said several days after the incident. Nathalie just handed a leaflet to a man. He got angry right away, started shouting very loudly, insulted her copiously. Medhy tried to calm him down. The guy turned back to him, I thought he was going to hit him. I intervened. It was a flood of insults for fifteen to twenty minutes. »
"There were sexist insults, I will pass you the words used, resumes Emilie Chazette-Guillet. I was called a dirty leftist, a terrorist, there were also swear words in Spanish. He was menacing and imposed with his size, his build. It was a long moment of real scare. I screamed like him, in order to attract attention. Little by little, people stop and a group begins to form around the activists attacked. "A man intervened, calmly, to defend us, then a young woman," she said.
"Without these people who intervened, I don't know if we would have ended up on our own two feet"
Until the racist slip: "I told him to break, it was too much. A third man, a black man, also intervened. At that point, I think he realized that a crowd had formed. He began to back down. Then a gentleman pushed him quietly towards the parking lot. »

Five days after this attack, Émilie Chazette-Guillet assures that these facts will not prevent her from returning to the field and militating. But she regrets a "deleterious atmosphere with a rise of the far right, racist posters, which have been removed by municipal services, racist tags", which have flourished in recent weeks. "It is citizen solidarity that makes it end well. Without those people who intervened, I do not know if we would have ended up on our own two feet. I would like to express our gratitude to them. »
These three activists quickly received the support of the Nupes, but also of EELV, through communiqués, but also of Clovis Cassan (PS), the mayor of Les Ulis.
