The latest decisions of the Executive Council

13 January 2015 The Executive Council of the Community of Saint Martin met on 13 January 2015, to decide on several deliberations emanating from the Human, Solidarity & Families, Sustainable Development and the Taxation cluster.
Financial support for athlete travel
Among the decisions relating to the Human Development Pole, the elected members of the Executive Board, numbering six, decided to grant financial support for the travel of athletes going to the French Open of Karate in Paris, the 1er February 2015. The Executive Board decided that the Collective would be responsible for the five round-trip tickets for Paris, which were addressed to the Poussins, Pupilles and Benjamins categories, represented by five young athletes (two boys and three girls) from Saint-Martin . A decision voted unanimously.
Support for moving a storyteller
The Executive Council has also decided to pay the expenses incurred in connection with the visit to Saint-Martin by the artist François Vermel. This storyteller was invited to Saint-Martin by the Médiathèque Territoriale, 22 next February, to perform two performances of the mini show "Les contes à croquer". The Collectivité will therefore pay for the artist's travel from Guadeloupe, as well as his stay (stamp, hotel and restaurant) on our territory. A vote was taken unanimously.
Community Financial Assistance to the Red Eye Crew Association
Also within the framework of the human development pole, the executive board voted to grant a grant to the association "SXM Artists". This association created a few years ago groups together several local artists and neighboring islands, including the local group Red Eye Crew, which created this association in order to have an administrative recognition. The band Red Eye Crew is planning a musical tour in France and Europe in February 2015 and has solicited the Community to obtain a subsidy to finance this trip. The Executive Council decided to grant a grant to this association for the promotion outside the territory of Saint-Martin musical culture.
The Community contributes to the funeral of Juliette Mingau
The Executive Council authorized the Community to contribute on behalf of the extra-legal aid to funeral expenses of Juliette Mingau, who died in Martinique on 04 January 2015. Juliette Mingau was very much appreciated in Saint-Martin for having largely worked in favor of Saint-Martin's culture and the young people of the island, notably through its association of traditional dancers Grain d'Or.
Land use: two negative opinions
Within the framework of decisions taken by the Sustainable Development Pole, the Executive Council decided to endorse the advice of the Planning Department relating to applications for land use or occupation. Two opinions were rendered inadmissible in the first case (Tennis Court: need to file a building permit) and unfavorable for the second (Warehouse: failure to comply with Articles 7, 8, 12).
Details of the Petroleum Tax Regulations
As part of the territorial tax regulations, the Executive Council has validated the rules applicable to the fueling of aircraft and ships, with regard to the taxation of consumption on petroleum products.
If the rate of the consumption tax on petroleum products applicable to the quantities of fuel entering the territory of the Community has been increased to 0.12centimes of ?? (By decision of Territorial Council No. 20-03-2014 dated 30 October 2014), the taxation of industrial diesel remained fixed at 0.23 ??, while the taxation of products intended for the refueling of aircraft, Boats or boats, benefits from a reduced rate of 0.065 ?? Per liter.
In order to facilitate tax control, the application of the reduced rate of 0.06 ?? Was subject to an obligation to issue a delivery order called "victualling voucher" for each victualling operation (set by regulation of the executive board).
It was therefore the Executive Council's task to lay down the implementing regulation for the implementation of the reduced rate of consumption tax on petroleum products. In general, any aircraft, ship or boat can be supplied with fuel taxed at the reduced rate of 0.06 ?? Per liter, provided that these fuels are actually used for the operational needs of the aircraft or vessel concerned.
In order to ensure a uniform application of this rule and to avoid possible misuse of the device, all operators must draw up a valid victualling voucher for each victualling operation. Voted unanimously.

Nineteenth Vice-President of the COM

Voeux 2015

Madam Chairperson, Dear Colleagues, Members of the Press, Ladies and Gentlemen, Hello! My turn has come to present my wishes for this new year, hopeful vows for the economy of our territory in 2015. First of all the new year brings us good news, with this record of the euro which at the beginning of the year has reached its lowest level since 2006, returning under the 1 $ 20. Decrease initiated for months, and which should continue in 2015. This return to a weaker euro is obviously favorable to our economy. In 2008, the euro had reached its highest level at about 1 $ 60 and has since held itself between 1 $ 30 and 1 $ 40. Consumption has naturally been carried over massively on the Dutch side, to the detriment of our traders. I am hopeful that things will gradually rebalance. The euro is now trading around 1 $ 10 in exchange offices.

Consumers have less interest now to change their salary and will return to spend their euros on the French side. This new situation will take a little more time to reach our tourists, we will together have to communicate to their attention on this rediscovered balance. But they too will come back more easily to consume with us when they realize that we have become again a "dollar-friendly" destination. The second good news for 2015 is the large 2014 projects that will be realized or finalized in 2015. I am referring, of course, to the development of Marigot Bay. This morning, I read in the press that boating is going well, good news for this particularly buoyant sector, which generates activity and direct and indirect employment.
The grouping around the firm Ricochin, awarded the AMO, is currently carrying out the specifications that should result in a finalized program of the 1er quarter 2015. Obviously followed by the necessary steps to launch a contracting procedure from the second quarter onwards 2015 for a period of approximately one year. I am also thinking of the development of downtown Marigot, parallel to Marigot Bay and in the same logic, the plan of revitalization has just been entrusted by mandate to the group led by the Semsamar. An initial phase of the state of Marigot has already started.
The development phase of the revitalization project is expected to be completed in the second semester of 2015. I am also thinking of the AW34 plot on the eastern bay, which will benefit from a general development being studied and which will be carried out at the end of the season. Start of work planned for early 2015 for delivery at the start of the season, before the 2015-2016 season. Finally, concerning the digital development, the Master Plan is under way with the help of the Tactis firm. This scheme will be completed at the end of the first quarter 2015. It will enable the Community, in conjunction with the operators, to launch funding applications for the deployment of very high-speed broadband to the support fund for the digital economy and the ERDF this year. All these projects are carried out in consultation with the population and professionals. Information and consultation will be accentuated throughout the year.

In terms of tourism, 2014 ended with the announcement of the normalization of relations between the United States and Cuba. This long awaited news will necessarily impact tourism in the Caribbean in the years to come. We will have to take this new factor into account and orient our decisions accordingly. In line with the tourism budget guidelines presented in December 2014, 2015 is the year of the revision of the territorial planning and tourism development plan of Saint Martin in order to prepare the tourist future of the 5 next years. The preparation of this new programming for the 2015-2020 period will be the occasion for a consultation of the socio-professionals in the framework of the organization of the second Territorial Tourism Conference in order to take into account the expectations and ambitions of those Which contribute to make our territory a tourist territory. The tourism strategy, which can not be separated from the Marigot waterfront project and the downtown revitalization project, will also take into consideration the work undertaken in order to create a coherent and efficient development dynamic while at the same time serving Of these two projects by the definition of a trademark of territory. In the other economic sectors, the Community will have to update, according to a methodology similar to Tourism, the agricultural development plan (AGENA study commissioned by the CCISM in 2011) and launch the economic development plan (based on the " The KPMG study commissioned by the CCISM in 2013), and to validate the strategic choices in line with the Community's priorities in these areas.

In 2015, the Collectivity accompanied by new financial partnerships (ERDF, BPI in particular) will strengthen its actions to accompany the economic world. By participating more and better to the financing of companies: The community support system backed by the new PO 2014-2020 will complement the financing of projects in areas considered as priorities by the Community (tourism, agriculture, fisheries, ICT , Audiovisual production, etc.). The Community will continue to support micro-projects and will support the VSEs by helping to operate structures such as the St Martin Initiative or the new Federation of VSEs. The Community will also accompany the enterprises by means of conventional equipment grants but also through new aid such as advances repayable to serve as working capital. A new export aid fund delegated to the CCISM will also be implemented at the beginning of 2015 to accompany local companies wishing to export, the partnership agreement having been signed in December with the services of the State, the Inter- And UBIFRANCE in particular.

Finally, a new financial partner will be closely associated with the financing of the companies, namely the Public Investment Bank, which will be put to the effective service of Saint-Martin in 2015. In 2014, the Community has begun the reorganization of the services leading to the creation of a new directorate within the Economic Development Pole, namely the Directorate for Rural and Marine Development. Rural development will fall into 2 objectives: The first concerns the livestock sector. The slaughterhouse will actually start its activity in 2015. On the one hand, the aim is to optimize the profitability of the operation of the slaughterhouse thanks to the aid allowing the increase of livestock and the improvement of zootechnical performances. On the other hand, to enhance the carcasses leaving the slaughterhouse by cutting and organizing the marketing of meat products. This will eventually increase the income of the breeder. The diversification of agricultural activities, which, in addition to new training schemes and new aid for the establishment of farmers, is oriented towards the development of new activities such as the beekeeping sector.

The second objective concerns the development of marine resources. The objective for the 2015 year is to create the necessary and indispensable conditions for the development of fisheries. It is a question of implementing all the actions allowing the structuring of this sector. The first act is the strengthening of the representativeness of marine structures through the establishment of a fisheries committee. Follow-up of the creation of two landing points - the first located in Marigot and the second in the context of a project around the fish pond in Quartier d'Orléans - and a technical fishing zone. It should be noted that the majority of the above actions involve co-financing mainly from European funds (EAFRD and EMFF). The share of the lender may range from 50 to 85%.

In Conclusion, the Community is also committed at the end of the year in a strong action in favor of the competitiveness of our companies, facing the mechanisms favorable to the overseas departments, resulting from the pact of responsibility. Alternatives to the viable CICE are sought from the state so that our companies are treated fairly. My last words will be addressed directly to the economic actors to try modestly to give them hope in the future. 2014 will have been a year of launching actions and projects on our territory, 2015 will see the first important achievements in economic matters. With a favorable market conditions, you should start reaping the rewards of your perseverance. I wish you all a Happy New Year and prosperity.

Thank you, Wendel COCKS

Greetings 2015 by Guillaume Arnell

Speech of the 1er Vice-President of the COM Ceremony of the Vows 2015
Madame President,
Ladies and Gentlemen Vice Presidents,
Ladies and Gentlemen, Territorial Advisers,
Ladies and Gentlemen Deputy Directors-General, Directors and Heads of Service,
Mr President of the CESC,
Mr President of the CCISM,
Ladies and Gentlemen, community business leaders,
Ladies and Gentlemen, territorial officials,
Ladies and gentlemen, representatives of the print, audio and television press,
Ladies and gentlemen,
I am pleased to be able to for the second time, carry you with the executive gathered around the president, my vows for the new year.
Indeed, Madam President, you could, as so many others do, present the vows to the citizens and the civil servants alone, but you wanted to leave your vice-presidents a share of initiative,
That honors you and I thank you for that.
Ladies and gentlemen, the month of January is traditionally reserved for the formulation of vows
For the year that is opening, but it is also a privileged moment to take stock of the past year and present the prospects for the future.
But first of all, I would first of all like to give public testimony of all the pain I feel in view of the dramatic events that are shaking the national territory at the beginning of this year.
I wish to remind you that here too we are the Republic and the French nation we also belong, when the country is in danger, then we are all in danger.
So we have to be in communion both with those who suffer, who mourn the disappearance of a relative or a friend but in communion also and especially with those who struggle with the peril of their lives to To preserve our freedoms and our rights to the difference: at the moment, I think of the police and magistrates.
Thus, my first vows go to those who suffer, the sick, the excluded, the expatriates, the homeless, the unemployed, the excluded and form the vow they find at the beginning of Year of new reasons to hope, believe and strength, tenacity, envy and willingness to get out of it and that we, government, do not forget to include them and include them in their programs .
Let me now, as a facilitator of the Sustainable Development and Transport pole, quickly revisit our flagship achievements of 2014 and review the prospects for 2015.
In terms of the environment and the environment
First of all, I want to salute the work of the entire team for the relentless fighting that is delivered on a daily basis for the preservation of a quality environment and for an improved living environment.
I must also pay tribute to the work of our partner companies.
Mowing and pruning of our roads are done regularly, the surroundings are made, the sorting selective increases in power and the collection of our waste produced.
However, this work is often not very visible because of the incivility of our populations, we must perhaps return to the good old methods of denunciation and especially of sanction.
All these efforts and financial resources can not be annihilated by the lack of civility of a few. 2015 will see us react faster and stronger, it can not be otherwise if we want to maintain our tourist destination and regain our lost market share, the effort must be generalized.
2015 will see the improvement of the selective sorting system, a generalized embellishment program
Downtown, on our roads, at the entrance of the various neighborhoods and especially the restoration of the garden of the community.
And then how not to mention our desire to see the realization of a mobile waste disposal facility.
For transportation
I must confess that we must put the overdrive, because too many illegal immigrants, too many transports inside the city, too much frequentation by unauthorized transport to serve cross-border lines, failure to comply with regulatory stops and j 'on the way...
The installation of the bus station is a most incontestable but does not solve all the problems related to transport.
We will have to work more and better with the professional organizations of freight transport, passenger transport, taxi, but also with professionals from learning to driving.
On the theme of achievements we must mention the setting up of exam sessions of both the code and the conduct with regard to examiners and examination places and I take this opportunity to acknowledge the skills and the performances Of the Computech company which assists us in this matter.
The work to be opened and / or to be carried out in 2015 will concern the following points:
- the issuance at the end of the month of the first licenses issued locally
- the intensification and finalization of the exchanges of permits
- reflection on the urban transport plan
- the registration of vessels
In order to do so, I have to rely on renewed cooperation with our friends in the southern part of the Island, and I am very hopeful that the new Prime Minister of Sint Maarten will understand our common issues.
I want to be able to count on the full and entire availability of my workforce by whistling the end of the recess for some.
I want to be able to count on the effectiveness of our territorial police to carry out a number of these files.
The grouping of all the services in the sustainable development division must be able to allow me to be optimistic.
Major Risk Management
A dedicated and competent mission manager of the first two crises enabled us to test our efficiency and our responsiveness and will allow us to be even better armed and better trained in the management of major risks.
The year 2014 saw the acquisition of new means of satellite telephony and 2015 will see the pursuit of essential equipment and also the improvement of our DITRIM and a concretization hopefully of a harmonization of our alert processes and With the cross-border OP 2014-2020, for example, the acquisition of a radar to cover the shadow zone of hope, St Barth and of course the southern part of the island .

Spatial planning, urban planning and addressing
Very honestly, the worst is behind us, 2014 has seen the whole team re-mobilize, the quality of work has improved remarkably, our deadlines are now respected.
All this new dynamics allowed us to write, and vote our urban planning code which will be effective at 1er March 2015.
The continuation of the local urban plan which will have to be finalized at 1 September 2015 and in order to do this we try to anticipate the few pitfalls that could be found here and there on our road taking into account the grievances of the citizens and communicating via the Site of the community and meeting the population and professionals.
The continuation and intensification of the regularization of the management and disposal of the 50 not geometric will be continued but it will also be necessary that the notifications already made are concluded financially
In any case we have agreed to a treatment of a hundred files both, this is the pace retained for the commission.
The management of the public domain is improving, new tariffs have been established and will have to be respected.
A systematic check of all permits will be carried out in order to compel the occupants to respect the authorized limits and freedom of movement.
A unique management structure is in place to better recover sums due to avoid the situations we are experiencing today.
Finally, we are in the final stages of negotiation for the acquisition of the trim grounds for the extension of the Grand Case track and for a number of other acquisition cases or we have asserted our right of pre-emption.
The arrival at the beginning of February of a deputy general manager, I am convinced, will further optimize our performance, perfect our modernization with new software to better meet the requirements of the world of urban planning, architecture And the environment.
To this recruitment will be added the hiring of a competence Saint-Martinoise for that which relates to the geographical information.
A reorganization will complete our actions with the establishment of an office, a cell or a land agency for better management of territorial heritage.
The Roads and Buildings
Much has been done at this level, but there is still so much to achieve but we would need more financial resources.
I shall merely enumerate a few enumerations:
- the realization of a mixing campaign for 1,5 Millions in 2014
- Concordia Highway
- route de Saint-Louis
- the two streets of Shanty Town
- Nana Clark Street in Hameau du Pont
- Morne O'Reilly
- a portion of RN7
- the Oyster road lays in its initial part
- rue Victor Maurasse
- the installation of reflectors to improve the safety of the Lowlands road
And in spite of this, a road network in poor condition, is to say how much the task is important vis-a-vis the weakness of the financial envelope.
In addition, the Galion road, the two works of art in Grand Case and three internal roads in Quartier d'Orléans were repaired.
Simeone TROTT seismic fitting, stairway and entrance portico, high school.
The good performance of the works of the school city, leaving us optimistic for the return of September 2015.
Complete reconstruction of our territorial council chamber.
But these achievements should not leave us with satisfaction but instead encourage us to go even further in our desire to equip this territory with quality infrastructures.
Thus 2015 will see the continuation of our action with the rehabilitation of the road of Colombier, that of Rambaud, Morne Valois and others.
The performance of our lighting needs to be revised, our vertical signs almost non-existent is to be put in place and the continuation of the security of our roads also.
But I would like to pay tribute to the work of the technical services and I will renew it on the occasion of my meeting with them scheduled at the end of the month I will not fail to congratulate them but also to let them know that I expect even more in terms of attendance , Punctuality, respect for the hierarchy and helpfulness.
As a vow, I want to borrow them from someone else as they suit what I expect from each one of you.
"I would like to ask each one of you more commitment than in the past and that 2015 is for each of us a year of Happiness, Peace, and that professionally, it enriches you to the measure of your expectations And your commitment "
Good Courage, Good Health and Very Happy 2015 year.
Guillaume Arnell


2015-01-11 Solidarity and Family
Greetings 2015 by Ramona Connor

Speech of the Nineteenth Vice-President of the COM

Ceremony of Greetings 2015 Good morning to all of you. First of all, allow me to greet you and especially thank you for your participation in this traditional ceremony of presenting the wishes of the community for the year 2015. It is a great moment for me, along with my elected colleagues, to report on my daily activities and the progress of the projects supported by our community. As Vice-President of the Solidarity and Families Pole for nearly three years, I have committed myself to defining the priorities in favor of all those who are vulnerable or vulnerable; Women, men and families affected by age, illness, disability, precariousness, unemployment, accidents of life ....

It is a privilege to work in the field of solidarity but also a very heavy burden in a complex international environment, a degraded national socio-economic context and a community whose financial difficulties represent both a straitjacket and a challenge . The needs of the population are legitimate and the expectations increasingly strong in our territory. The community must ensure territorial social cohesion by generating the necessary solidarities and ensuring that they are coordinated with the policies pursued by other actors (state, social welfare bodies, associations, etc.). It must also be combined with the other sectoral policies of education, integration, economy, culture, tourism and spatial planning ... with which it interacts in a logic of development sustainable. Cross-functional work represents, for me, a principle of action that can not be ignored, a source of innovation and optimization.

In this sense, we must be realistic, pragmatic and responsible and have the political courage to make decisions that are unpopular but inevitable if we are to guarantee the benefits for the poorest while at the same time allowing tomorrow's economic growth and employment. Our community spends the largest share of its budget on social spending like the RSA which it is no longer able to finance and which represents an unsustainable fiscal gap. A deliberation of the request for empowerment of the RSA was voted by the territorial council several months ago to adapt the device to the specificities of our territory. We are still waiting for an answer as the debt grows inexorably ....

My unwavering commitment is part of this crossroads of paths and requirements; The implementation of social policies on the different axes of the territorial scheme; Autonomy, childhood, social cohesion but also in prevention and health, optimizing spending, prioritizing actions in the light of today's and tomorrow's needs and rightfulness. If the crisis stimulates a natural generosity towards the poorest, it forces us to question social assistance and policies insofar as they influence opportunistic behavior on the part of some recipients. The preamble to the Constitution introduces the right to the individual and an obligation of society, but it also asserts the individual duties such as that of working to claim unemployment compensation. Situations of abuse exist in our territory, they are unacceptable and require reinforced controls which I do not wish to see as a risk of instilling distrust but as a means of strengthening the rights of those who need action public. A dedicated control team will be dedicated to this mission.

In the field of autonomy, the ambitious and structuring project of the medico-social center was finalized and sent to the ARS for its registration with the PRIAC and thus obtain the necessary funding for its realization. In total, it should represent a capacity of 139 places including 72 for the elderly and 99 for the disabled. Different establishments will offer a real life course: EHPAD with Alzheimer's reception and temporary reception, IME, MAS, Foyer of life, CAMPS ... This ambitious project will finally answer the needs of a population left too long in the confusion of a lack of Solutions for their loved ones. It will be ambitious in an innovative design to pool functional means and minimize operating costs. In home maintenance, the introduction of pre-financed checks will make the aid more effective. Awareness campaigns will be extended to families and caregivers and I invite you to take the 25 next March for a symposium on Alzheimer's disease. The Territorial Pensioners and Elderly Committee (COTERPA) will also be set up, so that our elders can be fully involved as resource and user players in the policies and actions that concern them.

As for the child and family axis, a restructuring of the child welfare system was initiated by the transfer of personnel from the former MDE branch to the 1E January. The aim is to strengthen the action taken in the care of children and families and to develop a genuine prevention policy by encouraging parenting activities in a space identified as such. By and for all concerned actors of the territory, it will have the ambition to raise awareness of educational responsibilities and to contribute to the accompaniment of families in their duties; Information meetings, group discussions, workshops, reparentalisation, mediation, .... In addition, and to illustrate this transversality desired by all the directorates, the Pôle Solidarité et Famille will pilot the axis of intrafamilial violence within the framework of the action plan of the CLSPD conducted with the state.

Interdepartmental Program for Handicaping and Loss of Autonomy The CRIP, an essential tool in the field of children at risk, has revealed in 2014 its effectiveness and its essential place in our childhood policy. Its action will be extended by an observatory for children in danger. Family planning will be reactivated to also respond, in the field of prevention, to the needs identified with young people and women. In the vast field of social cohesion, whose outlines remain determined by those of the other fields with which it is articulated in complementarity, the policy already mentioned in the field of RSA must be extended to actions instituting genuine territorial reform In terms of minimum income. An operational and legal audit was launched and finalized at the end of 2013, which advocated a range of measures that I defended with the two successive overseas ministers in 2014 and to which they respectively gave an interested and positive listening . Once the empowerment is given to us, the reform will have to be quickly reopened in order to adapt the system in its different meanings for the implementation of a policy of just justice with the services of the State, CAF and Pôle Emploi.

In terms of social inclusion, a partnership with ADIL was formalized in 2014 so that Saint-Martin's could be better informed and advised on housing and housing issues. A new housing assistance service will need to be put in place for modest homeowners to prevent and combat unsafe housing. Finally, and because prevention and access to health are intimately linked to social inequalities in health, and we are directly involved in medico-social action, this essential segment of public action in the Of the population was particularly invested in 2014 through the CLS (local health contract) and PLS (Plan Santé Jeunes).

In a reciprocal engagement with the ARS in response to a diagnosis made on the specific needs of the territory, the cluster will pilot the device on 3 components: -The implementation of screening measures for developmental disorders in children and Behavior in the elderly. -The implementation of the guidelines of the Youth Health Plan of Saint-Martin -The creation of a Medico-Social Pole The state will lead the 3 priorities that are:

-Nutrition and fight against overweight and obesity

-The prevention of human diseases transmitted by mosquitoes

-The establishment of a Local Council on Mental Health (CLSM)

The PSJ, will concern the 6-25 years, and will focus mainly on risk behaviors, the promotion of good eating habits, prevention of the suicidal crisis and the psychic suffering as well as the addictive practices ". It will include a series of measures to better protect the health of young people through 7 orientations:

- Access to rights with the project to create a Youth Health Area and reflection on the establishment of a "young passport"

-Nutrition and the fight against obesity and overweight,

- Sexual and maternal health,

- The addictive behaviors,

-Mental health,


- Immunization coverage.

Access to services is also a major challenge in the fight against inequalities and the satisfaction of users. The MSF of Sandy Ground will be moved in spaces more adapted to a quality reception and a permanence should be able to be held in Grand Case where the presence of the PSF is lacking. Finally, the Pôle Solidarité et Famille will be relocated to a new administrative center shared with Pôle Emploi; The agents currently dispersed for reasons of contingency will find working conditions more in line with their organization and for the satisfaction of the public.

Conclusion As you can see, in 2015 projects are numerous and significant in building solidarity based on shared values ​​and revisited in terms of inter-generationality, more readable family policy, support for parenthood, effective prevention , Home maintenance, accommodation, proximity, partnership and transversality. If social spending represents a massive collective effort, it must also be synonymous with productive investment for the benefit and future of all. I want to personally thank all those, partners, professionals, collaborators, local and institutional actors who are involved on a daily basis to build social citizenship without exclusion.

The words of President Aline Hanson after the terrorist attack against Charlie Hebdo. Following the tragic events that took place on 7 on 2015 in Paris at the headquarters of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, I would like to condemn this unprecedented attack against the press.
This barbarous act, which has left twelve dead and several wounded, must be taken with all the seriousness and pragmatism required of the French authorities, so that the perpetrators of these crimes may be put out of Freedom of opinion is no longer in danger, and that the French Republic is respected in its own territory.
