As a public official, having disagreements that generate provocations I am used to and that is part of the responsibilities that I assume. To attack my family home is unspeakable and illustrates the savagery of those who claim to defend a just cause. https://t.co/Eqlua8zZCy

“To attack my family home is unspeakable and illustrates the savagery of those who claim to defend a just cause. I will not give in to any threat for the good of the people of Nice and Nice,” wrote the elected official.
“Paralyzing the city center is unacceptable”
Wednesday, Christian Estrosi had asked the prefect of the Alpes-Maritimes that all these anti-health pass gatherings are now static. “If protesting is a right, paralyzing the city center is unacceptable!” He exclaimed. A situation which according to him “is seriously prejudicial to the economic activities of our city in a context already complicated by the Covid-19 epidemic”.
The Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, reacted to the incidents by supporting the mayor of Nice.
