EVERYTHING FOR AND BY THE PEOPLE
« For the Honour of France, for the sacred interests of Humanity »
(Napoleon the Great, 17th of Ventôse Year VIII – Saturday 8th March 1800)
Today is the anniversary of Rocquencourt, where the Prussian forces were defeated by the cavalry and footsoldiers of General Exelmans and General Piré. One moment of prosperity had blinded them, but on entering our territory, there they found their doom. They learned, to their cost, that it is easier to threaten our eagles, than to assail them.
The Bonapartists pay hommage to the combattants of Rocquencourt, the last battle of the campaign of 1815, where the cause of the people was victorious over the armed forces of the Coalition powers.
We pay hommage also, once more, to the officers and soldiers who fought from 1792 to 1815 for the glory and the independence of France and of her allies, against the unjust aggressions of the seven coalitions leagued against them.
We recall by the present declaration our fight to give the work of remembrance and solidarity of the Cornflower of France the visibility it deserves, and to make it the symbole of remembrance and solidarity of the entire Francophonie.
We invite you also, on this same occasion, to sign and to have others sign, our petition in aid of our armies and police forces (France and United Kingdom), as well as their families.
This year, we commemorate the anniversaries of Ulm and Austerlitz with measures designed to promote our project for a Union of those who Combat Poverty.
In view of the extreme heat and natural disasters that have struck India and France, and the homeless being the foremost victims of strong heat –
– We extend our deepest sympathy to the friends and family of the victims.
– We ask of you that you verify, with the local authorities, that the homeless of your district have access to drinking water, and that this be clearly signposted.
– Extra vigilance is also of circumstance concerning very young children, infirm or elderly people, work animals or pets, for whom heatwaves are particularly dangerous.
– We remind all, as a matter of urgency, that our open letter to local authorities and humanitarian associations remains available to you. We invite you to forward it to whomsoever it may concern, and to as many as possible.
