Containment and covid-19 in Gallargues-le-Montueux in 2020
We are in December 2021, the health situation is not really improving but at least France is not confined.
Feedback on 2020 confinements in Gallargues:The "Jeunesse et Loisirs" association of Gallargues-le-Montueux brings together many activities for all ages. It is by far the association that has the most members for Gallargues. The mayor of the village Freddy Cerda has, of course, been made aware of this initiative before its real start orally and by email. The president of the association had a long meeting at the end of November 2020 with the elected officials and employee of the CCAS de Gallargues to get their testimonies.
The start of the 1st confinement, on March 17, 2020 , was experienced with fatality and without worry. However, from the first day, around 11 am, there was an intervention of the firefighters in protective clothing (see photos below ) on the place du coudoulié in Gallargues.
The following week, a former association of the village Jeunesses et Loisirs decided to collect photos and videos to keep traces of this absolutely terrible and exceptional event .
All these documents were intended for me to make a video montage. But, the health situation not improving, I thought at the time that it was incongruous to publish this kind of document and to advertise myself indirectly. With the agreement of the president I put aside these audiovisual documents.
In October, the situation worsened and a second confinement was declared. I do not remember who had the idea but we thought it would be wise to leave a trace of our emotions during the second confinement. This is how the members of the organization asked people well rooted in the life of the village to testify to their feelings. This is not a real interview since there was only one question: "how do you feel about the 1st confinement and by comparison what do you think of the 2nd confinement ?" . The people gave their testimonies and, in the editing, I sometimes added a question in voice-over to make the speech more intelligible.
