Statue of Jaures : Michelin's recommendations
Born in Castres, Jean Jaurès (1859-1914) took the part of the workers in their struggle against the Carmaux mine concession owners and was triumphantly elected member of parliament for the constituency in 1892. The statue represents the socialist orator standing with people representing the various trades of the region: a peasant, a glass bottle maker, a metal worker and a miner.
