They won’t let insecurity spoil their party, especially after the episodes of GHB intoxication and the so-called wild shots, which terrified more than one. To eliminate any danger, the organizers of the Electronic Beaches have convened various prevention and awareness associations.
All propose a series of measures. Presentation of three of them.
Sober you can walk away
At the entrance to the venue, the G-Addiction and Avenir Santé stand sets the tone. When a group of friends walk past the stand, one of them has to choose to become Sam: the one who drives is the one who doesn’t drink. “We keep his car keys overnight. If he asks for them at the end, he has to blow into the breathalyzer.”explains Quentin Matton, director of G-Addiction. On the contrary? “We offer other solutions; VTC, taxis, trains, buses…”
Alert of a danger in an application
Given the increase in harassment in the festive environment, the Safer application -available for free on IOS and Android- allows you to report inappropriate behavior. “There are three buttons corresponding to different alert levels that can be pressed. The 25 volunteers present receive a notification and immediately reach the person, whether victim or witness.”
I need to talk?
Family Planning 06 persists and points out: whoever (or whoever!) feels the need to speak up will be able to find a listening ear in the safe zone, inside the Palace, in front of the stage. Especially if this person has just been the victim of a sexual assault. Either way, volunteers will be “always on the side of the victims”.
