Controversy surrounding the feria poster signed Jean Moulin

#BEZIERS. The Feria poster taken from a drawing by Jean Moulin who frequented the arenas before the 1920s is at the heart of a controversy. In question, the use of the Resistance and the caption he had written under the drawing, a caricature. Regional councilor Thierry Mathieu was one of the first to draw. “No one can say what Jean Moulin thought of bullfighting. But above all, to respect Jean Moulin the man, the artist, is also to respect his work, not to mutilate it, not to seek force to make him say what she doesn’t say.”

For its part, the Béziers Liaison Committee for the Abolition of Bullfighting (Colbac) believes “that by highlighting a symbol of French resistance, Robert Ménard wants to convey the idea that defending bullfighting is an act of resistance. “It’s a shameful recovery.”

The mayor, for his part, claims to have simply wanted once again to honor the memory of Jean Moulin, the Biterrois.
