ALAIN JOCARD / AFP Adrien Quatennens, Danièle Obono and Jean-Luc Mélenchon, June 27, 2017 at the Invalides. QUATENNENS AFFAIR – Just a point of clarification, without “minimising”. Eight days after the revelations of Canard Enchaîné on violence, including a slap, committed by Adrien Quatennens against his wife then the much criticized message of support from Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the pressure and criticism do not fall on La France Insoumise (LFI). Danièle Obono, one of the elected members of the party, tried to cut short the criticisms and the trial for disconnection targeting her group: “A slap is violence”, she wrote at the start of a message posted this Thursday, September 22 on social networks. “Dozens, hundreds, thousands of women. Your sisters, mothers, friends, comrades, colleagues, the person sitting right next to you in the subway suffer this violence. They are the victims,” she adds. “Pass the message” “Your friends, fathers, lovers, brothers are committing this violence. They are neither monsters nor saints,” she continues. “These are violent men because crossed by this violence (…) It is not doing anyone a favor, neither to the victims, nor to the movement, even less to the people involved, than to minimize them”, concludes- her, asking party activists to “get the message across”. Rebellious and rebellious, get the message across. Let’s not give up!✊🏾♀️ https://t.co/EWRNcEToZr — Deputy Obono (@Deputee_Obono) See the tweet Should we see a public criticism against the leader of the movement, Jean-Luc Mélenchon, who seemed (still) assume his message this Thursday before the National Assembly? “I weigh my words all the time,” he answered questions from reporters asking if he regretted his tweets. Since his tweets during the “Quatennens affair”, Jean-Luc Mélenchon had not spoken. He did it this morning… https://t.co/CZVjMY0Z4k — Daily (@Qofficiel) See the tweet “No questioning but consistent with what I have already said and what Jean also said -Luc Mélenchon: a slap is unacceptable”, she replied to a journalist from Le Monde who saw in this new message “a questioning, in the subtext, of the word of Jean-Luc Mélenchon”. No questioning but consistent with what I have already said and what Jean-Luc Mélenchon also said: a slap in the face… https://t.co/tpGy0wOjVq — Deputy Obono (@Deputee_Obono) See the tweet Sunday , the former presidential candidate had denounced “police malice, media voyeurism, social networks”, welcoming on the other hand the “dignity” and the “courage” of Adrien Quatennens. Before trying to correct the situation in a second tweet: “A slap is unacceptable in any case. Adrian accepts it. It’s good “. Jean-Luc Mélenchon will be able to explain himself a little longer on Saturday evening on France 2 where he will be one of the guests of the new program by Léa Salamé, broadcast from 11:10 p.m. and entitled Quelle époque!.
