Ali Soumaré

Qualified as a “seasoned repeat offender” by the UMP, Ali Soumaré seemed too different, too rushed and too “typically suburban” for his detractors. He was however elected regional councilor, with more than 70% of the vote. Today, he does not hide that one of his teenage mistakes sent him to prison. An incarceration that allowed him to find his true path: to prevent others from locking themselves in neighborhoods or acts leading to social impasse. We learn throughout the story that Sarkozy is crazy, that Éric Zemmour drives for the extreme right and that the PS is suffering from a deep evil: internal struggles. Without ever falling into justification, Ali Soumaré enumerates throughout his story the outline of a program and explains the mechanisms legitimizing the stigmatization of the suburbs. Whether we like it or not, he is an elected new generation, representative of a France which until now had only the right to complain. And who now wants to weigh. In all citizenship.
