L’Arc de Triomphe vandalisé : une insulte à la République

L’Arc de Triomphe, sis place Charles de Gaulle à l’extrémité des Champs-Elysées à Paris, a été pris d’assaut et envahi, samedi, lors des scènes de chaos liées à la manifestation des “gilets jaunes”.

Le célèbre monument symbolique a non seulement été tagué à l’extérieur (“Les gilets jaunes triompheront” et “Macron démission”, a-t-on pu lire), mais a aussi été saccagé à l’intérieur. Statue de Marianne et machine à pièces ont notamment été la cible des vandales.

Certains ont rejoint le sommet de l’édifice et s’y sont pris en photo.

412 personnes ont été interpellées dans la capitale française, parmi lesquelles 378 ont été placées en garde à vue, selon un nouveau bilan de la préfecture de police de Paris, faisant aussi état dimanche de 133 blessés, dont 23 membres des forces de l’ordre.

“La volonté affichée et assumée de s’attaquer à nos forces de l’ordre, aux symboles de notre pays, sont une insulte à la République”, a jugé le ministre français de l’Intérieur Christophe Castaner.

“Au risque de paraître vieux jeu, je veux dire à quel point j’ai été choqué par la mise en cause de symboles qui sont des symboles de la France”, a commenté le Premier ministre Edouard Philippe.

“Aucune cause ne justifie que les forces de l’ordre soient attaquées, que des commerces soient pillés, que des passants ou des journalistes soient menacés, que l’Arc du Triomphe soit souillé”, a lui réagi le président Emmanuel Macron, depuis le sommet du G20 à Buenos Aires.
