French Scientists Mobilised Against Far-Right Party RN

Nearly 3,000 scientists signed a statement on Tuesday, June 25, published in Le Nouvel Obs, calling for broad mobilization against the far-right in the upcoming legislative elections on June 30 and July 7. They argue that a country governed by the Rassemblement National would severely compromise societal values and denounce the dominant narrative that misrepresents the Nouveau Front populaire as a threat to the Republic. Signatories include notable scientists from various disciplines, expressing concerns about the far-right's challenge to scientific integrity, democracy, and the rule of law. Initiated by the group "Scientifiques en rébellion," the statement highlights the potential negative impacts on research, education, and climate policies, citing examples from other countries where far-right governance has undermined scientific institutions and environmental efforts.
