Voyage to the land of hope: Edwy Plenel and Jean-Michel Le Boulanger

Meeting on the 26th of August at 15:00

« Manifesto for the diversity of France »

Faced with the chaos of the world, we have two options : either tightning security nourished by the hatred of the Other, or developing new humanism that finally accepts our different identities and the resources of diversity ... A humanism of the relationship which accepts the Others in their differences and builds bridges between cultures.

Yes, we can be Bretons, Corsicans, Basques, Muslims, Jews, of all origins and all appurtenances, without ceasing to be French. Let us accept the richness of the diverse, invent a Republic of territories, a multicultural Republic finally possible ... It is high time that France rewrote its national idea taking into account its diversity, its true richness.

"At last, air!" So long we waited for this Manifesto. We? All those who can no longer fight this war, which  France does to herself, to her people, who are fundamentally plural, to their history, which is woven of the world. At the dawn of electoral times which risk giving too much of fear and preachers of hatred, Jean-Michel Le Boulanger blows on our policy a wind of Brittany saving. Since the Breton experience, he asks the French question. Read and share this Manifesto ... » Edwy Plenel
