He sees it “the logical continuation” of his commitment. In an interview at Sunday newspaper, published on Sunday January 23, Aymeric Caron, former journalist and founder of the Ecological Revolution for the Living (REV) party, announces his support for Jean-Luc Mélenchon for the 2022 presidential election. “The camp of the left and environmentalists is a field of ruins, he believes. The candidacy of Jean-Luc Mélenchon is the only one to bring hope. To lower CO2, to halt the loss of biodiversity, we can no longer procrastinate: the emergency is now”.

The former columnist of the show “We are not lying” attacks the passage to Europe-Ecologie-Les Verts, which according to him would advocate a “adjustment ecology”. “Jadot’s line consists in not being too radical, in going to be applauded in front of the Medef while swearing not to be anti-liberal. This soft ecology does not correspond to the need of the moment: to produce less, to pollute less”, he believes.

What form will this support take? Aymeric Caron entrusts considering running for the legislative elections. “Everyone must commit. We can no longer hide, he explains. Today, a REV delegation, of which I am a member, is entering the People’s Union parliament, Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s campaign parliament. For the legislative elections, our REV candidates will leave under the banner of the People’s Union. The desire is for a long-term alliance”.
