Referendum on the Constitution in Algeria: the campaign ended without having generated adhesion

 Referendum on the Constitution in Algeria: the campaign ended without having generated adhesion The reform was proposed by President Abdelmadjid Tebboune , of which it was an electoral promise and who described it as "a cornerstone of the new Algeria ". Abdelmadjid Tebboune, 74, hospitalized in a military establishment in Algiers after suspected cases of Covid-19 in his entourage, was transferred Wednesday evening to Germany for medical examinations. In some districts of Algiers, a number of electoral boards remained empty, while posters were torn from others.

Julien Bayou, National Secretary of Europe Ecology-Les Verts, reacts in a forum on the JDD to the attacks from Nice and Conflans-Sainte-Honorine. He also exposes his vision of secularism.

Here is Julien Bayou’s column: Horror has hit France once again. Just weeks after the attack that left two injured outside the former Charlie Hebdo premises. Almost six years after the bombings that brought mourning to the editorial staff of the same newspaper and the hostage-taking of the Hyper Cacher. Five years after the Bataclan. Four years after Nice. Faced with the Islamist terrorist attack which claimed the life of Samuel Paty a few steps from the Conflans-Sainte-Honorine college where he taught, we can only feel astonishment, dread and disgust. In Nice, the murder of three faithful of the Basilica of Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption has plunged us back into horror. These sentiments honor us: they are proof that our country refuses and will always refuse to get used to these recurring manifestations of barbarism and obscurantism.

Brazil outraged by Benzema's Vinicius comment - and it doesn't interest him

 Brazil outraged by Benzema's Vinicius comment - and it doesn't interest him From a purely journalistic perspective, the corona-related ghost games also have their good points. Because what used to not get out further due to acoustic impossibility is now eagerly absorbed by the media - and disseminated to the public. Like the recent dispute between Real striker Karim Benzema and his Brazilian striker Vinicius Jr.

The excitement must not, however, make us collectively sink into madness. Indeed, for the past ten days, part of the political class has complacently participated in the hysterization of the public debate. It is who will indulge in the most idiotic one-upmanship, who will fall into the most abject amalgamation: legislation should be urgently needed, and even, without laughing, organize a referendum to include secularism in the Constitution. (some elected representatives of the Republic apparently do not even know the first article of the latter). And be prepared to get branded as Islamo-leftism if you don't scream loud enough to the taste of the pack. This climate is unbearable.

The excitement should not, however, make us collectively sink into madness.

Very hesitant, a seller named Alain did everything to buy back his object. This is called a hell of a twist. This Friday, October 30, the buyers of Deal met Alain, a 56-year-old Alsatian who came to sell a sculpture belonging to his sister and estimated at 1,000 euros.

Because our legal framework, whether we are talking about secularism or security, is anything but outdated. The problem comes rather from the means which are put in front. I notice that it is those who today swear only by the security order - the same who are generally the bearer of a misguided conception of secularism - who for twenty years have not ceased to melt the police force on the field and have made every effort to weaken our intelligence services while showing culpable indulgence towards the Gulf powers which directly support international terrorism. And also, since it will be necessary to talk about it, those same people who deprived the national education system of the most basic resources to the point of compromising their mission.

The attack that claimed the life of Samuel Paty reminds us of two basic facts. The first is that radical Islam must be fought by all means, that we must not let go, ever, in the field of freedom of expression and the freedom to caricature. This also implies rejecting unworthy amalgamations, and above all, refraining from allowing the poison of division to interfere in our country. Quite frankly, the halal shelves in your supermarket have nothing to do with any of this. It is easier to make this kind of cookie-cutter statement than to talk about the lack of resources allocated to the PHAROS online reporting platform. As regards the defense of secularism, there is the law of 1905, the whole law of 1905 and nothing but the latter.

Denis Pelletier: "Faced with the attacks, the brotherhood of Catholics is a political project"

For the sociologist, a specialist in Catholicism, the bishops of France reacted remarkably to the attack on Nice by putting themselves "on the side of peace".

We no longer have the right to place the burden of social cohesion on the shoulders of teachers alone

"

The second is that the gap between the mission entrusted to teachers and the place that given to them in French society is simply no longer tenable. Samuel Paty was a professor of history and geography. He was one of those who strive to impart freedom of conscience and freedom of expression on a daily basis. Nicolas Sarkozy, then President of the Republic, unashamedly affirmed in 2007 that "the teacher can never replace the priest or the pastor". I will answer him that this is not his vocation, because his role, precisely, is to emancipate. However, in a country that is doing badly, teachers find themselves on the front lines, and this is unacceptable. Unacceptable, the unraveling of teacher training. Unacceptable, the end of inadmissibility which was opposed to them even though two years ago, many of them were already sounding the alarm bells behind the slogan #notdevagues.

A country that belittles its teaching staff to such an extent is slowly slipping into obscurantism. The teachers of our country deserve respect. They deserve to be listened to. In the last days of summer, Emmanuel Macron slowed down the hiring of 3,000 new teachers on the grounds that they are not "serving to turn the country around". To all those who, like the current tenant of the Élysée Palace, see the world only through the narrow prism of the economy, I would like to say that without foundations, there is generally no much to straighten out. Education - like the environment - is one of the foundations on which we will build the French society of tomorrow. To be an environmentalist is to understand this.

TRIBUNE. Karabakh must be saved from the ethnic cleansing policy led by Azerbaijan

 TRIBUNE. Karabakh must be saved from the ethnic cleansing policy led by Azerbaijan © Copyright 2020, The Obs There is no clean war, but Azerbaijan has, since September 27 , chosen to wage a dirty war against the Armenians of Karabakh.

And please, on this side too, let's avoid overbidding: the image of the 'black hussars' has lived, and the teachers are not the monk-soldiers that certain speeches with martial accents that we hear in recent days would like to do. The government's procrastination concerning the honor of Samuel Paty, the health protocols transmitted the weekend before the start of the school year show that the Government has still not understood the teachers' request: most of them only aspire to exercise their profession - the most beautiful in the world, they used to say - under normal conditions. We no longer have the right to place the burden of social cohesion on their shoulders alone.

From this point of view, the abandonment of the Borloo plan in 2018 was a major political mistake. Being an environmentalist also means considering long-term problems rather than managing crises with quick cauterizations. It is up to all of us, citizens of France, that the task of reinventing a republican project falls to us. the height of the challenges of our time. As a politician, this is what drives me, and I sincerely hope that all of the country's left forces will work hand in hand today to achieve this.
