In Avignon (Vaucluse), residents of the Saint Jean district denounce the insecurity that reigns around the Place du Viguier. For the inhabitants of the 250 housing units of Clos des Fontaines, the legal representative leaves the buildings abandoned and drug traffickers have settled. A table displays the prices and times to buy cannabis and cocaine. The inhabitants believe that they now live in “a zone of lawlessness”.
Coke, sockets and lawless zone
The inhabitants of the ten towers of Clos des Fontaines denounce broken elevators, rats on the stairs, cleaning not done since the arrival of a new agent this summer. A sign on Place du Viguier offers “good smoke” and “Suriname coca from 10 euros”. The inhabitants fear to pass in this sector in front of “the posters, the prices, the timetables, the traffic is institutionalized and legalized. Owners no longer want to come to this neighborhood because people find themselves sockets on their balcony or in their kitchen. We feel in a zone of lawlessness”.
Residents want to change agent
The inhabitants of Clos des Fontaines are asking the courts to change their agent so that their neighborhood is maintained: “we can no longer rent, people leave because rats come out of apartments. Elevators have been out of order for several months and elderly or disabled people can no longer descend from their homes. Some buildings have not been cleaned since the summer”.
France Bleu Vaucluse sought to join the agent who does not answer. Residents of another condominium in Monclar had already denounced similar practices.
