She wanted to report inappropriate behavior from deputy Eric Coquerel who was just elected Chairman of Finance Committee of National Assembly. Block denied by the chosen one "L'Obs” takes stock.
Former supporter of Left Party, this 43-year-old woman has been active in campaigns for intermittent workers' rights, as well as against corruption. She was also involved in the Nuit Debout movement which she founded. As well as organizing for the union of left during the presidential elections of 2017.
She was a "pacifist" figure within the movement of the "yellow vests", in particular when she launched the official declarations for demonstrations on the Champs Elysees. In 2020, she created the "Yellow Force", a "national coordination citizen actions and peaceful demonstrations using yellow vests."
