Below are brief excerpts from a press conference in which Marine Le Pen, the leader of Rassemblement National (National Rally, formerly Front National) responds to the recent protests by the “Yellow Vest” movement.
|00:00||“Yellow Vests”: Le Pen reacts from Brussels.|
|00:04||I once more call on the President of the Republic to take into consideration|
|00:08||the suffering that is expressed, to respond to it,|
|00:12||to get out of the Elysée [presidential palace], to stop cloistering himself,|
|00:16||shutting himself away in the Elysée, it is action that|
|00:20||the Yellow Vests are waiting for. I think that he must|
|00:24||become aware of the social suffering and provide very strong|
|00:28||and immediate answers. I have the feeling|
|00:32||more than ever that the answer of|
|00:36||the President of the Republic cannot just be security.
