Statue of Jaures : Michelin's recommendations

A native of Castres, Jean Jaurès (1859-1914) took the side of the workers in the struggle pitting them against the Carmaux mine owners, and was elected deputy for the district in 1892. The statue shows the Socialist orator surrounded by figures representing various local professions: a farmer, a glass maker, a steelworker and a miner.
