The executives of insubordinate France assure it in unison: the movement has always been open. What better place to prove it, they say, than the "Amfis", where nearly 150 workshops and conferences follow each other with multiple speakers?

A return of the "old politics"?
After Jean-Luc Mélenchon vilified the Socialist Party during the last decade, would he welcome some of his members? "For us the doors have always been open, the movement is in constant construction", says Danielle Simonnet The NPA, whose spokesperson participates in a workshop" Amfis ", is said to not closed for a coalition : "We would like something to happen on this side, and it will be discussed," said Philippe Poutou, Friday leader at LCI.

The deputy of Noord-Adrien Quatennens estimates that "the LFI method continues to aggregate. (…) When political figures take account of the new power relations, we keep the door open. "
