At the end of the summer universities of insubordinate France in Grenoble, Jean-Luc Mélenchon reached out to his environmentalist, communist and socialist allies on the question of superprofits. He wants this tax to become the workhorse and the unifying element of the Nupes, on the eve of a return to school which promises to be explosive.
Will superprofits become Nupes’ new hobbyhorse at the start of the new school year? It is in any case the wish of Jean-Luc Mélenchon, the leader of rebellious France has also reached out to his socialist, environmentalist and communist partners at the end of the amphitheatres of rebellious France in the Drôme.
Faure wants a shared initiative referendum

So, concretely, you need the signature of 20% of parliamentarians and 10% of voters to obtain this referendum.

They must be taxed. We must increase the contribution of very large companies to the financing of collective life”, launched “JLM3.
The leader of the rebels, quickly joined by ecologists and communists, is also in favor of this new imposition. Finally, if this measure is symbolic for Jean-Luc Mélenchon, it is above all a way to weld Nupes before the start of the school year. Because the rebellious leader wants the entire left to be united behind him in his fight against the government.
