The Minister of the Sea, Annick Girardin, denounced Sunday evening an “attack” against the deputy Stéphane Claireaux (LREM) which occurred in front of his home in this overseas collectivity.
The chosen one received, according to the minister, many projectiles in the face followed by stone throws.
The Minister of Overseas, Sébastien Lecornu, for his part announced Sunday evening on Twitter that the Minister of the Interior Gerald Darmanin and himself had “instructed the prefect of Saint-Pierre-et-Miquelon to ensure protection of the deputy ”.
For Annick Girardin, “the red line” has been crossed:
“On the sidelines of a citizen demonstration against the health pass, several dozen demonstrators went to the home of deputy Stéphane Claireaux,” announced the ministry of the Sea just after the aggression.
“In a spirit of dialogue, he went to his steps where he received many projectiles violently thrown in the face followed by throwing stones ,” they added.
“By directly attacking an elected representative of the Republic, at his home and in front of his own family, these demonstrators crossed the red line,” commented Annick Girardin, quoted in the press release.
Claireux is just another target of demonstrators against the vaccine pass passed last week in the French Parliament, which aims at restricting even more unvaxxed people’s freedoms by barring them from bars and restaurants, cinemas, public transport, public buildings, etc.
