It was in Nantes (west) that Jean-Luc Mélenchon held a meeting this Sunday ” immersive and olfactory “. A new experiment aimed at distinguishing the candidate of the Insoumis within a divided left and struggling in the polls.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon launched this Sunday his last sprint towards the presidential election with a novelty: an immersive meeting to deliver his speech and present his program. He projected himself towards space, digital technology and the sea, “ the new frontiers of humanity “.

It is seen from space that we better understand everything there is to do on Earth, thousands of applications in your phone depend on space: GPS, weather, cartography… “, launched the candidate Insoumis by presenting his program concerning space while deployed on the four walls of 50 meters wide a visual projecting the 3,000 militants of the assistance in space.

Jean-Luc Mélenchon urged his supporters to ” political battle for the decommodification of space, for the disarmament of space, it must remain a place of peace », « questions that should be in the presidential “, he insisted.

Getting back to technical progress

Thus, the time saved thanks to the machines will help, according to him, to guarantee retirement at 60 and the effective 35 hours, then the 32 hours of weekly working time.

When approaching the last visual tableau, presenting the sea, Jean-Luc Mélenchon exclaimed: “ Look at its power, its strength, this is the exit door from nuclear power, because it contains 66 times the power we need, with the movement of the tides and the currents “. Last Friday the candidate had visited the first offshore wind turbine off Pornichet (Loire-Atlantique). He thus placed the emphasis on basic research, wishing to train “ thousands of middle managers ” for his ” ecological bifurcation », « practical and uncompromising “.

A “shock” meeting

The immersive meeting, which remained discreet on the olfactory level according to some participants, was thought of as a mobilization tool. “ Here is the world in the three dimensions in which I call you to firmly commit “, affirmed the tribune

The candidate explained why he opted for this novelty, which some on the left see as a “gadget”. For him, “ it was necessary to show in wide angle the vision of the world that we carry through the measures of the Future in common », his program for a « harmony of humans with each other and with nature “.

This ” bang to start the year is also for Jean-Luc Mélenchon a way of turning to voters who no longer know what to vote while the left is scattered in six main candidacies and cannot compete in the polls with Emmanuel Macron and the rights.
