After Callac, Saint-Brévin? “The common point is this strong pressure put on local elected officials” – Bretagne
On the side of the opponents, is the mechanism at work in Saint-Brévin-les-Pins the same as in Callac?
At a time when the National Rally is seeking to become parliamentarized and to reflect a more moderate image, activists from other far-right formations want to have visibility on the ground. The common point is this strong pressure put on local elected officials, with the feeling that in small towns or medium-sized towns, it will be easier to influence their decisions.
Do the targeted municipalities have the same profile?
No. They are of different sensitivities. Callac is run by a diverse left-wing mayor, Saint-Brévin by a centre-right mayor. In Callac, a small town in central Brittany, there was this idea of revitalizing the area. Saint-Brévin, a coastal town, is in a different situation. And besides, it is only a question of moving the existing structure.
Are these actions effective?
Locally, this greatly affects elected officials who are victims of threats. On the overall dynamics of an immigration policy at the level of a region or a country, this is a phenomenon which does not have a significant influence for the moment. Especially since there is a point of weakness on the side of the opponents of these projects: when all the asylum seekers are concentrated in the same place, they complain and when we try to distribute them more over the whole territory , they are still complaining.
