During the Council of Ministers this Wednesday, Emmanuel Macron asked Gabriel Attal to launch a major consultation on the issue of violence against minors, the franceinfo political service learned from participants on Wednesday April 17, confirming information from the Parisian. The consultation should begin on Thursday.

While several violent news items involving minors have marked the news recently, with for example the attack on Samara as she left her college in Montpellier or the death of Shemseddine in Viry-Châtillon, the President of the Republic wishes launch this consultation with the “same mobilization of scale” as the measures launched against violence against women.

Emmanuel Macron wants to involve “mayors, associations, parents, teachers”

“When the horror of feminicides gripped society, thanks to the mobilization of associations, we launched the Grenelle of domestic violence which allowed us to bring everyone around the table and produce the major results on which we are working still”, declared Emmanuel Macron during the Council of Ministers, again according to this participant. He wishes to involve several actors, “mayors, associations, parents, teachers”.

According to Emmanuel Macron, “the emergence of ultraviolence in everyday life, among increasingly young citizens, requires long-term work that involves all stakeholders. It is only in this way that we can put an end to the process of decivilization that I have denounced. Prime Minister Gabriel Attal will be traveling to Viry-Châtillon on Thursday on the theme of authority.
