Benjamin Cauchy, Toulouse figure and very media of “yellow vests” at the beginning of the movement, officially joined the “club” of friends of Eric Zemmour. The autoentrepreneur, head of the Debout La France list in the Paris region in the last municipal elections, then a candidate for the Europeans on Nicolas Dupont-Aignan’s list, and also a columnist for the “GG”, has returned to his Occitan lands. It was Saturday September 4 in Carcassonne to announce “the creation of committees to support the candidacy of Eric Zemmour throughout Occitania”.
The movement assures that it already brings together 500 activists in the region, who will “multiply the actions on the ground in the coming weeks” and that “5,000 sympathizers” of the cause have already come forward “even though the campaign has not not started yet “.
An ex-Baudis also
While waiting for their leader to lift the suspense, the local branch is put into “battle order”. Alongside Benjamin Cauchy in Carcassonne, there was also the Toulouse academic Chantal Dounot-Sobraques, former assistant to Dominique Baudis who went to the RN. And the Carcassonnais Robert Morio, former FN regional advisor.
