The yellow vest Christophe Chalençon gave an interview on Italian television, on the show Piazzapulita.
Christophe Chalençon, figure of the movement of yellow vests in the Vaucluse, said in an interview for Italian television, on the show Piazzapulita, that "paramilitaries were ready to bring down the government". He was particularly questioned about his meeting with Italian Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio, Tuesday, February 5 in Montargis, and added, at the end of interview and off camera, these surprising remarks. The footage was nevertheless recorded and broadcast on television.
"I know I'm risking a lot, I can get shot in the head anytime, but I'll be at the end of my convictions, because if they put a bullet in my head, Macron will be spent in the guillotine, "said Christophe Chalençon in this video.
"We have come to such a point of confrontation, that if they kill me, he is dead too, because the people come back to the Elysée and he dismantles everything (...) We are many like that. 'they hit one, we have paramilitaries who are ready to intervene because they also want to bring down power.'
Christophe Chalençon and Luigi Di Maio had exchanged for more than two hours with several yellow vests, causing strong tensions between Rome and Paris, which resulted in the recall of the French ambassador to Italy for consultations. On Thursday in an interview with Corriere Della Sera, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said the ambassador will soon be back in Rome.
