Jadot and hundreds of executives advocate a “refoundation” of EELV

POLITICS – Former Green presidential candidate Yannick Jadot and several hundred EELV executives and activists call, in a column in the “Journal du Dimanche”, to “refound” their party in a formation “more open to associative movements” and on the “ecological class” in the society.

Ecologists are organizing their summer days in Grenoble from Thursday to Saturday, under the sign of the December congress.

Marine Tondelier, the initiator of the internal collective ” The following “and who could seek the succession to the national secretary Julien Bayou, notes in the tribune that on climate change, “being right before everyone else does not give us any rights and will never be enough to impose ourselves as electoral or societal evidence”.

The Greens candidate Yannick Jadot collected 4.6% of the presidential vote in April, far from the first left-wing candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon, which forced EELV to line up behind the latter within the New popular ecological union and social (Nupes).

“We want Europe Écologie Les Verts to restructure itself, with its partners in the ecologist pole (such as Générations and Génération Écologie, editor’s note) and all those who wish to do so”writes Marine Tondelier, assisted by the former head of the European list of Generation Ecology Dominique Bourg, the mayor of Poitiers Léonore Moncond’huy and the former deputy and mathematician Cédric Villani.

“Degrowth” et “opposing capitalism”

A “ecological class” exists, “much larger than the encarted community” among the Greens, believes the municipal councilor of Hénin-Beaumont (Pas-de-Calais): “Parents and grandparents worried about their children”, “peasants crushed by the industrial agricultural model” or “entrepreneurs aware of planetary limits”.

The line of the movement that she wishes to see born would be in favor of the “degrowth” and in “opposition to capitalism or economic neoliberalism, to productivism and nationalisms, destroyers of life and solidarity”says Ms. Tondelier.

Among the signatories of the platform are the mayors of Grenoble Éric Piolle and Strasbourg Jeanne Barseghian, the former presidential candidate Noël Mamère, the former number 1 of the party David Cormand, the deputy Générations Sébastien Peytavie or the president of the group environmentalists in the Senate Guillaume Gontard.

If she presented herself at the head of the party, Marine Tondelier could notably face the finalist of the primary, the“eco-feminist” Sandrine Rousseau.

In an interview also with the JDD, Yannick Jadot also says that he wishes “an ecological list for Europeans” Autonomous Nupes. “Our differences with La France insoumise justify this autonomy”he pleads.
