Yesterday, Marion Maréchal, who has become close to his aunt Marine Le Pen’s party, was at a rally in the Hauts-de-France region. A presence that attracted many youngsters. Our team on site tried to find out why.

The newly elected, Marion Maréchal-Le Pen is invited. Tonight, he is expected to be a superstar. At 34, Marion Maréchal-Le Pen represents the youth of the far-right movement. Like Jordan Bartella. The image of the latter convinces young enthusiasts.

For young people, everything, security, purchasing power, I think it’s important, right?“, represents a young activist.”This is the biggest aspect of his plan. And immigration, obviously, because we agree to accept a million people. But after a while, if we don’t already have the means, we have to learn to manage.

Security of purchasing power, security, necessarily immigration“, says another
