When asked by the media Konbini, the actress took the opportunity to spoof the memories and one of them deserved the fact that we focus again. The actress, discovered by the general public in the film Manon des sources, Claude Berri, a role for which she won the César for best hope, has a long history of activism. She was followed by her mother who worked in the humanitarian from a young age. Fact overshadowed by his famous cover of It, yet it has multiplied the shares in favour of the poor. She told her experience of the case of illegal migrants, referred to in the term ” activist then the “sans-papiers”. It is to come to their aid, she was arrested in 1996 in Paris during the episode initiated by the sans-papiers movement at the church of Saint-Bernard in the 18th arrondissement .

A protest which lasted 22 days !

Emmanuelle Béart was told this Thursday, June 25 at Konbini : “This is my best friend, Christine Citti, who came on the day of my birthday and said to me ‘you know, there are undocumented migrants who are locked in a church and who are doing the hunger strike’. We arrived with nappies and milk for the kids because there were a lot of kids.” There she meets Valerie Lang, the daughter of Jack and Monique Lang, who asks for her help to raise awareness of this issue, thanks to its media coverage :”yes Yes it must stay there because we need to talk of this problem.” It is the year of cinema release of the first installment of the saga Mission Impossible, in which she starred with Tom Cruise for director Brian De Palma. She remembers precisely the urgency of the situation : “most of the children régularisables and children non-régularisables. In the same family we would return the children and keep others.” And it is far from being an action minute, which often means today a simple post Instagram, as she reveals : “I stayed 22 days, and it was held until the expulsion.” An example of tenacity.
