“Tours 03/18/92, the youth piss off the National Front. » It is by wearing a vintage badge that could have paraded thirty-two years ago in the streets of Tours that Marion Cotillard publicly positioned herself against the far right and the National Rally, Saturday June 15, 2024, on her account Instagram.

In the photo shared by the actress, among the dozen pins and badges pinned to her denim jacket, the message written in black on a yellow background of the Touraine badge is unmistakable. It echoes the slogan taken up during demonstrations against the far right organized throughout France.

If the origin of the slogan “Youth pisses off the National Front” is known – taking a phrase from the song Pigsty of Bérurier Noir, released in 1984 and which became, demonstration after demonstration, a rallying cry against the extreme right – that of the badge worn by Marion Cotillard is for the moment little known.

The actress was in the Centre-Val de Loire region in 1992, enrolled at the Voltaire high school in Orléans (Loiret) and a student at the drama conservatory in the same city. In March 1992, France witnessed a then unprecedented rise of the National Front in regional and cantonal elections.

On March 18, a few days before the election, demonstrations were organized throughout France to protest against a meeting of the far-right party at the Zénith in Paris. Including in Tours.
