|Which are the various requests of the
citizens of Saint-Genès-Champanelle in 1789 ?
Initialy, theyclaim the recognition of the essential rights of the people in a final way out of the arbitrary one.
They ask thene that the province not be left any more for account compared to the capital.
That the ministers and servants of the King are recognized as responsible for their acts in front of the "Etats généraux".
That the milicia are removed.
That the legal procedures are simplified.
That the taxes become more proportional to the fortune of each one.
That the expences of perception of the taxes are reduced with less intermediaries...
That there is only one parish per commune. [Saint-Genès-Champanelle was divided between three parishes.]
That each canton has at least one deputy of each kind.
That is created an office of conciliation by commune and a Court of Appeal by province.
They are there the general requests of the inhabitants but they assert also needs more terre.à.terre as repair of their church which collapsed and which nobody wants to repair in spite of taxes that they pay. They claim also the fence of the cemetery.
The repair of the ways seems also urgent to them perm especially those making it possible to go daily in Clermont.
Some of these whishes were granted by the "Révolution Française" but any citizen with the current of the problems related with the management of a commune nowadays can wonder wether there is a quite great difference between the complaints of these poor inhabitants of 1789 and those which the current inhabitants of Saint-Genès-Champanelle.
