The CGT had warned that Thursday, a day of mobilization against the pension reform, power cuts targeted at municipalities of elected officials favorable to the reform could take place.

The Lot trade unionists heard this call since the permanence of the Renaissance deputy, Huguette Tiegna, located in the center of Figeac, was deprived of electricity Thursday afternoon, Thursday.

“The cut occurred from 2 p.m. to 5:45 p.m., only in the street where there is my permanence, the sub-prefecture, shops, including a pharmacy and a bakery.

It was the permanence that was targeted, the CGT had announced that they were going to take action, ”she told AFP.

Filing of complaints

The elected official indicated that she was going to file a complaint on Saturday, just like Enedis who confirmed the cut.

“It could have endangered human lives, people on respirators for example.

Traders are angry.

I condemn this type of action, ”added the MP whose permanence has already been degraded.


Yesterday afternoon, my office was without power.

A power outage that also affected merchants and artisans, pharmacy, residents of rue Caviale in #Figeac and the sub-prefecture of #Lot.

Funny method when you call for dialogue @Seb_Menesplier!
