Call to vote before April 24

I declare the Paris Games open in honor of the 33rd Olympiad of the modern era. With these words, it will be up to the next head of state to officially open the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. We French athletes from all walks of life and all disciplines can only imagine this historic moment. the seal of a far-right presidency. Being fully aware of the difficulties many French people are going through, we are convinced that voting for a party that would endanger republican values ​​would be the worst remedy. The sport we believe in, that of the values ​​of Olympism, is made of friendship and respect; it is the place of diversity. He rejects all discrimination. All over the territory, in our cities, our suburbs and our countryside, sport is a powerful tool against exclusion. It is because we believe in this sport, brotherly and inclusive, that we are committed to preventing our nation from being led by a president who embodies the exact opposite, the stigmatization of the other, the withdrawal in oneself, nationalism. And that’s why we call on to vote for Emmanuel Macron on April 24th This collective said in a press release from Le Parisien and France Info. This collective therefore takes a clear position for the outgoing president, but is especially against Marine Le Pen with a view to the second round, which will take place on April 24.
