Then his assistant Florence Delaunay, the only member of the majority present, could not finish her speech, while the public symbolically turned their backs on her.
The reaction of the environmentalist majority was made on Sunday evening, on social networks. The mayor of the 1st arrondissement Yasmine Bouagga estimated that when someone pays tribute to the victims of the Holocaust, “we do not boo, we do not interrupt, and a fortiori not in the name of a foreign conflict unrelated to the memory that is honored. Unworthy attitude”.
“The work of memory and the promotion of peace are everyone’s responsibility, in dialogue. Concord, which some claim, cannot support invective and violence, even verbal”continued Sonia Zdorovtzoff, deputy mayor in charge of international relations.
The mayor of the 4th Rémi Zinck supported Florence Delaunay “violently interrupted”. “Times of commemoration demand respect and dignity”according to the aedile EELV.
“Support for Florence Delaunay, Deputy Mayor of Lyon, Delegate for Remembrance. Nothing can justify the hatred shown this morning by some when she was commemorating the memory of the victims of the Shoah. I call for responsibility and decency”continued the 1st assistant Audrey Hénocque.
By denouncing this episode as a political instrumentalization of the elected opposition representatives present, environmentalists have drawn the wrath of the first concerned.
“You are about to receive an individual who participated in the attempted assassination of a former chief rabbi of Israel! Next time, come to the commemoration…rather than attack on Twitter”replied the mayor LR of Bron Jérémie Bréaud to Yasmine Bouagga.
The mayor of the 2nd arrondissement Pierre Oliver, who appears smiling in a photo of the commemoration, used the same argument.
The week is likely to be long, with the holding of the controversial round table this Wednesday at the Town Hall in tribute to the 30th anniversary of the Oslo agreements.
