A dozen activists from the far-right Action Française movement burst into Toulouse on Thursday March 25, in the midst of a plenary assembly at the Occitanie Regional Council. they have “attempted to enter by force in the hemicycle to interrupt the deliberative process, perhaps from the basement”, explained to AFP the PS president of the regional council, Carole Delga. According to a community in the Occitanie Region, the security service reacted “very quickly, with calm and composure”, to prevent this eruption. No elected official or employee was injured during the incident which lasted a few minutes. Police officers arrested Action Française activists.

Carole Delga announced that she would file a complaint after this incident. “Facing the extreme right, I repeat: I will not let go and will not give in to any pressure, wherever it comes from”, she said, recalling that she had on several occasions been the target of threats, including death threats, from the extreme right. “We feel in France that there is a very tense climate. We are creating a society of enemies. I believe that there will be an escalation over the months before the presidential election” of May 2022, added Carole Delga.

The intrusion triggered an avalanche of reactions in the political arena. Emmanuel Macron denounced an action which he believes reflects “the true face of the extreme right” and his “will to gag democracy”. The RN mayor of Perpignan, Louis Aliot, estimated in a tweet thate “the violent intrusion of extremists” was worrying “for the democratic reach that it represents”. The LR mayor of Toulouse Jean-Luc Moudenc also condemned “firmly” on Twitter this intrusion “inadmissible“and “the actions of these extremists”.
