    Regional French daily Le Dauphiné reported that the artist depicting Emmanuel Macron as a puppet manipulated by Jacques Attali, will now be facing criminal charges.

    The large caricature was drawn on the side of a water management building, near the public car park on Rue de la Synagogue in Avignon, a place well known to street artists, who regularly decorate this wall in total freedom.

    This particular graffiti shows Emmanuel Macron as Pinochio on a theatre stage. The President of the Republic, dressed as a puppet, is manipulated by strings held by Jacques Attali, the Jewish writer and economist known to be close to the Head of State.

    The American Jewish Committee (AJC), which leads the fight against anti-Semitism, reacted with outrage and called out the mayor of Avignon Cécile Helle on Twitter. Philippe Meyer, President of the BnaiBrith France, also tweeted his indignation: “A nauseating message that reminds us of similar ones that must be erased as soon as possible.”

    Informed of the existence of this caricature, the city of Avignon initially asked the Greater Avignon agglomeration to remove the mural, according to information from BFM Marseille. In the end, the removal was no longer officially requested as the fresco had no inscription and was “subject to interpretation”.

    The author of this mural, Lekto, is used to controversial political cartoons that he regularly shares on his Instagram account. Attali is a supporter of global depopulation efforts and had spoken about it quite openly in front of a stunned audience. The globalist Attali has never hidden his profound contempt for ordinary people.

    One of Lekto’s previous creations on the same wall in Avignon showed an electoral poster of the comedian Coluche, wearing a tricolour scarf with the title “Coluche president” and a provocative slogan. According to France Bleu, the fresco was painted on 10 April, the day of the first round of the presidential election.

    In their book Coluche, the accident – counter-investigation, written in 2006 by Antoine Casubolo and Jean Depussé, they question the thesis of an “accident”. On the back cover of the book it reads: “In the aftermath of the tragedy, no one bothered to consult the witnesses. The newspapers contented themselves with repeating the information broadcast by AFP. Now, it turns out that Coluche was driving sixty kilometers an hour in a straight line. The truck was coming in the opposite direction practically at a walk and at the last moment, it veered left.”

    Didier Lavergne, one Coluche’s friends also believes he was murdered: “It was as if they had done it [the accident] on purpose, to fuck us up, you see.” According to him, Coluche was a threat to globalists.
