MEP Yannick Jadot on Friday called on EELV activists to build a "great force of ecology", wishing the party to "go beyond" and welcome environmentalists "from wherever they come" to "win alternation in 2022, even if he himself took care to say "left".
"If we must radically transform the economic system, we must also radically change the political landscape (...) Let's build the great strength of ecology (...) with all those who act or want to act." Build with political activists and the elected officials who are now convinced that ecology is the heart of the recomposition, "said Mr. Jadot, on the second day of EELV Summer Days in Toulouse.
"Dear friends, let's be the great alternative to win the alternation in 2022. Delphine Batho, François Ruffin, Ingrid Levavasseur, Guillaume Balas, Raphael Glucksmann, and many others, with or without label, you participate in these summer days You are welcome in the great adventure, in this huge challenge that is ours: to transform society in a few years, "he continued.
The president of Génération Ecologie, the deputy of the Somme, the figure of the "yellow vests", the coordinator of Générations and the founder of Place public have participated in debates of the JDE during the last two days. Mr. Ruffin was especially welcomed by Yannick Jadot, wishing in front of the cameras the creation of a "popular ecological front".
If he recalled that he had "always felt left", Mr. Jadot stressed that this is "not enough (knows) not". "Let us enthusiastically welcome those who want to build with us, wherever they come from (...) To open up is not to soften, it is to grow. It is to give oneself a chance to win There is urgency, "he insisted.
While he is sometimes suspected of wanting to take the ecology towards the center, Mr. Jadot was very offensive against the government.
"The only ecological act of this government, supposedly, is to give more gifts to the hunters," he said.
And about the Brazilian president, accused of accommodating fires in the Amazon: "(Jair) Bolsonaro has never hidden.We hear today the President of the Republic claim that Bolsonaro has lied.Bolsonaro has not He has always said he wants to deliver the Amazon to agribusiness, "he also said, asking Macron for a" ban on Brazilian transgenic soybeans "to force Bolsonaro to act.
