The Web Summit is the biggest tech event of the year, gathering leaders, change makers and entrepreneurs from around the world. The mission of the web summit is to bring this community together to foster collaboration and create a better future, thanks to the use of Technology.
The Web Summit team has brought on stage Marine Le Pen, as a speaker. Marine Le Pen is a French Politician whose views are associated to extreme-right, promoting xenophobia, the closing of the European Union borders, and other extreme views that are not aligned with the values of the Web Summit.
I am a tech entrepreneur and I am French and I'm afraid this is not something I can accept. By giving her legitimity to be part of such a conference, Web Summit is validating her extreme views on a number of topics that I don't identify with.
I do not believe she has any noticeable achievements in the field of tech, nor does has she demonstrated leadership on changing the world.
As such, I request the removal of Marine Le Pen from the speakers list.
