To challenge the abandonment of their street in need of illuminations, residents and traders of the rue de la Concorde gather with candles in hand. History perhaps to see there more clearly.
After deploring the dark areas of the street, abandoned by Christmas lights, they chose to take the situation with humor. A hundred traders and residents of this street in the hypercentre met Tuesday evening at the eponymous café, candles in hand or placed on the tables. A symbolic way of contesting the absence of decorations in the street. “Each year, this artery brings together a dozen garlands suitable for streetlights,” recalls Claude, from the association of artisans and traders of Concorde (ACAC). This year, nothing but black holes, over a large part of the street. The elected official in charge of this file, we advise you to put your hand in your pocket if you want our illuminated street. On listened to him. On one bought these candles ”. Definitely a neighborhood in bad luck since this time, even the emblematic Christmas tree of the Clémence Isaure fountain only lights up once in two “the rest of the time, there are failures”. The association also recalls that it is not that “stingy” since each end of the year, it buys 1200 jute bags for a value of 5000 € that it distributes to the public. Bags with funny logos reminiscent, if necessary, of the corrosive humor of this district of Toulouse.
