Emmanuel Macron affirmed; Wednesday that there would be “no ban tomorrow” bullfighting, as claimed by LFI, and advocated; to this subject “a conciliation, an exchange”. “There is not going to be a ban tomorrow. We must move towards a conciliation, an exchange. From there where I situate myself, ç it’s not the priority; from the moment. This subject needs to be treated with respect and consideration,” the President of the Republic, on the sidelines of a visit to the salon of the Association of Mayors of France.
“We must take into account the local specificities and customs to which our compatriots are legitimately attached. And the animal condition and the sensibility that it awakens, especially among the younger generations. As soon as we are in the invective, çit does not work”, added; the head of state. “The animal condition is not always listened to enough, it’s a real subject. When we talk about hunting, bullfighting, the subject of the animal condition, we have to approach it, “in the same way we have to look at what is in our culture” , he continued.
Emmanuel Macron insisted; so that “these debates are conducted with respect. In the respect of traditions and our culture because people have the impression of being dispossessed of their culture. And in keeping with our commitment to biodiversity; and the climate. There is a way”.
The total ban on bullfighting advocated by the MP LFI Aymeric Caron is one of the twelve texts on the menu of the “parliamentary niche” from this party to the National Assembly, Thursday. LFI deputies hope for a political spotlight despite the risk of “obstruction” of their opponents.
