"There is an urgency. Scientists make the relentless observation of the acceleration of climate change and the collapse of living things which threaten all life on Earth; they also note the vertiginous widening of social inequalities, and the deterioration of living conditions.

Faced with this observation, we have a responsibility. Ile-de-France, our region, is the richest in France, but also the one in which wealth inequalities are the highest: the poor are poorer there than in the rest of the country, and the rich, much richer. In our region, the preservation of living things has been relegated to the benefit of supporting an economy in orbit that does not serve Ile-de-France residents. The regional policy carried out by the right for five years, echoing that carried out by LREM at the national level, has thus scuttled the equality of rights, the environment, training, transport ... Our responsibility is to carry another model . A model that relocates our public services, our food supply, our economy, a model that supports daily transport and useful projects. A model which protects, which facilitates, which supports the territories. A model that gives back the power to live to all. Unlike the president of the region who muzzles the opposition and advances in all arrogance, this new model will put citizen participation at the heart of the political life of our region.
