It is France in mourning, indignant and incredulous at the beheading of a teacher to push Emmanuel Macron to the rescue. The men of the services, the police, the gendarmes, landed at dawn in the ‘cité’ of the northern suburb of Paris where a “fatwa” had been pronounced on Samuel Paty – as the Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin said. They knocked on the house of the 80 who reacted with exultation or satisfaction to the barbaric assassination of Paty, they added to the eleven in custody the four students who allegedly “sold” information about their professor to his executioner, Abdullakh Anzorov. From hour to hour, the mosaic of the ten days that preceded the beheading of the professor just out of the school of Conflans Sainte-Honorine is drawn as a nightmare. The figure of the radical Islamist Abdelhakim Sefrioui, founder of the collective ‘Cheikh Yassine’ (the leader of Hamas killed by the Israeli army), who accompanied the father of a Paty student to protest, stands out as the author of the fatwa against him. ask the principal to dismiss the professor. The information services were alerted, reported the atmosphere that had been created around the teacher for his lesson on freedom of expression, but no concrete measures were taken. Just the opposite of what Macron – after a meeting that lasted two and a half hours yesterday at the Elysée – told his ministers and the anti-terrorism prosecutor he wanted to do: “concrete actions, without giving even a moment of respite” to the fundamentalists. Darmanin immediately announced that 231 Islamic fundamentalists immigrated to France will be expelled in the next few hours, then moved on to implement the president’s instructions: “Islamic fundamentalists will no longer sleep peacefully, now they will have fear”. The Chechen killer who has matured beheading had been living “immersed in religion” for three years, had made himself known for common crimes which, however, had not cost him prison, and trained in a gymnasium to fight. The lesson on freedom of expression, the caricatures of Muhammad shown in class had strongly impressed him, to the point that on his own initiative he got in touch with the father of the pupil who was in charge of the protest against Paty to find out more. The parent – who remains in custody – in addition to having put the professor’s name and telephone number online, may have informed Anzorov. Who, however, the afternoon before taking action was seen wandering around the school of Bois d’Aulne for a long time, asking the students to indicate or at least describe the victim.
France declared a health emergency, the Netherlands went into a partial lockdown. The second wave of the pandemic is being handled very differently by the countries.
The second corona wave is rolling mercilessly across Europe. The federal government declares one EU region after another a risk area. Only Greece, Cyprus and Latvia are now considered “risk-free”. In the neighboring countries, the situation is sometimes much more devastating than in Germany. In the Czech Republic, the number of infections compared to the population is eleven times as high as in Germany, and in Belgium, nine times as high. All European countries are trying to counteract this with measures – some more, others less determined. An overview:
France – curfew in Paris and Marseille
A travel warning from the federal government for tourist trips will apply to the entire national territory of France in Europe from Saturday. Only individual French overseas territories such as the island of Mayotte in the Indian Ocean are not yet considered risk areas.
The government in Paris is trying to curb the spread of the virus with night curfews in large cities. In Paris, Lyon or Marseille it applies from Saturday between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. At this time, only people are allowed on the street who have a valid reason – for example, they are on their way to work. You have to prove this with a form. Anyone who does not adhere to it must expect a fine of 135 euros. The bars in the regions with the highest corona warning level have been closed for some time, and there are stricter hygiene rules in restaurants.

In a TV interview, French President Emmanuel Macron blamed celebrations for the high number of corona cases. Private celebrations such as weddings in ballrooms or other public places are therefore no longer permitted throughout the country.
Netherlands – pubs closed for four weeks
The government in The Hague tightened the corona measures considerably on October 13 and ordered a “partial lockdown”. Pubs, cafes and restaurants have to close for four weeks, the sale of alcohol is prohibited after 8 p.m. Citizens are only allowed to receive a maximum of three guests per day in their apartments. In addition, they should only use buses and trains in urgent cases.

Prime Minister Mark Rutte also announced a general mask requirement for all public spaces such as shops, museums or libraries, so far this was only an urgent recommendation. Meanwhile, the relocation of seriously ill Covid-19 patients to neighboring Germany was being prepared again because in Dutch hospitals – as in spring – the places in intensive care units are becoming increasingly scarce.
Belgium – curfew in planning
In Belgium, due to the drastically increased number of corona infections, all restaurants and pubs are to close for four weeks. The Belgian news agency Belga reported on Friday evening, citing information from a crisis meeting of representatives of the central government and the communities and regions. In addition, there should be a curfew nationwide from midnight to five in the morning.
Belgium is one of the countries most severely affected by the corona pandemic in Europe. The authorities of the country with a population of eleven million recently reported almost 6,000 registered cases within 24 hours on a seven-day average. According to current figures, around 550 infections per 100,000 inhabitants have been reported in the past 14 days.
Austria – first place in lockdown
With the 7,000-inhabitant community of Kuchl in Salzburger Land, a place will be under quarantine again for the first time in months from Saturday. With a few exceptions, entry and exit is no longer permitted until November 1st. The place and the region have top values for new corona infections in Austria. In addition, the Alpine republic has now set its corona traffic light for four districts in three western federal states to red for the first time because of the very high risk. The Innsbruck region in Tyrol is also affected. In Austria there is a widespread mask requirement, curfew hours are brought forward to 10 p.m. in some cases. At private events without assigned and marked seats, only ten people are allowed instead of the previous 50.
Spain – 46 municipalities partially cordoned off
Spain was caught by the second wave as one of the first countries in Europe from mid-August. The measures to contain the pandemic are much stricter than in Germany. But there is also a patchwork quilt there because the competence for combating the coronavirus lies with the regions.
Nationwide in Spain there has been a general mask requirement outside of your own four walls since the beginning of August. Since then, there has also been a far-reaching ban on smoking in public. In more than 700 municipalities there are further restrictions – for example on access to bars, restaurants, concert halls or shopping centers such as on the vacation island Mallorca, which is popular with Germans, or the limitation of participants in meetings to only six people, such as in Catalonia.

46 municipalities with a total of 5.7 million inhabitants are partially cordoned off across the country. They may only be left or entered for a valid reason. The most prominent case is Madrid, which has the highest corona numbers. There, this measure was implemented by the central government against the will of the regional government. Catalonia has just taken drastic measures with the tourist metropolis of Barcelona. All bars and restaurants here were completely closed from Friday.
Italy – mask compulsory indoors and outdoors
The Mediterranean country, which was hit by the first corona wave earlier than other European countries, adopted strict and tough countermeasures from the start. In view of the second wave, many rules are also stricter than in Germany. There is a general mask requirement – inside and outside. In your own four walls this is not necessary. But the government advised everyone to wear mouth and nose protection when visiting. Anyone caught outside without having to pay a fine of up to 1,000 euros.
To set an example, Rome has also strictly banned private parties this week. Only family gatherings such as weddings and funerals are allowed but must be limited to 30 participants. In addition, the government of Giuseppe Conte urgently advises the approximately 60 million citizens to forego social evening groups at home with more than six invited guests. Accommodation bans, however, do not exist. Today, unlike the lockdown in spring, travel is also possible without hindrance. Rome does not want to weaken the ailing tourism industry any further. In addition, experts say that the majority of infections currently happen among relatives and friends.
A speaker wall, dented turntables and a truck (or a bus): nomadic sound systems are emblematic of the free party, the radical fringe of the techno scene. One of the most famous, Spiral Tribe, has just mobilized for Lebanon. The occasion for an overview of these collectives which were very active in the 90s and seem to be reborn thanks to the closure of the clubs.
1 – Spiral Tribe
Catalyst of the free movement in the United Kingdom from the end of the 80s, the Spiral Tribe went into exile in France in 1993 (the very first teknival in Allonnes, it is them) to escape the repression of the Conservative government and preach good electronic speech. More than thirty years after its beginnings, the collective, some members of which are now in their fifties, still beats the pavement of the underground. The “Spinnaker” spirit is still carried today by 69 DB, Crystal Distortion or even Ixindamix, to name only the best known of the collective. They are the inspirers of this famous “party” which never ceases to agitate the nights of our countryside, as we saw this summer in the Creuse or in Loire-Atlantique. But the activism of the SP23, the new name of the collective in recent years, knows no borders. As evidenced by the charity compilation Mission Lebanon available on Bandcamp, which they came up with to help victims of the Beirut port double blast in August.
2 – OQP
In 1993, a whole crew of graffiti-skateboarders from Marseille, who were quite fond of hip-hop and ragga, converted to techno following a meeting with the Spiral Tribe. They take for pseudo an acronym meaning Original Quartier du Panier (a district of Marseille). This merry band led by the VJ Starsk and the DJ Xtech not only organize parties in the south of France but carry their bus and sound system all over Europe. The Marseillais are also the founders of the legendary Okupe label, a boiling hardtek cauldron whose productions are tinged with breakbeat and ragga influences. Less harsh than the usual free sound. In 1998, OQP joined forces with the English sound systems Facom Unit and Total Resistance to create Sound Conspiracy. A tribe that will go to preach the good word as far as India. The paradise of travellers all eras.
3 – Impakt-Teknokrates
Alongside the Nomads, Psy4triX or Mas I Mas, the Impakt-Teknokrates sound system is part of the first generation of converts by the Spiral. Although not all from the region, they were particularly active in Brittany, blessed land of free, and deployed an unfailing inventiveness to “plant” clandestinely in places as improbable as the underground car park of a supermarket in the center of Rennes. This did not prevent them from regretting, like many historical collectives, the standardization of the scene in the 2000s, a time when fatigues, hoodies and the big hardtek sound reign supreme. Is it because he got tired of this formatting that Antoine Caudron alias “Kraft” subsequently created the production agency Miala, which is now part of the Fimalac group and represents artists like The Avener or Tez Cadey, who we don’t necessarily imagine performing at the traditional “tekos” of 1is May ?
4 – Heretic
The smartest, crazy and famous. There’s even a Wikipedia page detailing their exploits. Foremost among which is the Dantesque free party they organized in 2001 in the disused Molitor swimming pool in the heart of the XVIe district of Paris. Easily available on YouTube, the documentary We Had a Dream, produced in 2010, tells the incredible game of cat and mouse in which the twenty members, including DJs today renowned as Popof or Noisebuilder, engaged with the police, going so far as to impress the intelligence officer generals who testify in the film. But the Heretiks have also organized perfectly legal events at the Zénith in Paris or at the Olympia.
5 – Kraken Krew
Should you store your speakers and truck in the garage when you are over 40? The answer is, of course, no! The proof with this collective founded in 2013 by former members of different sound systems in the Paris region. Their objective being to pose imposing facades of sound supported by a total visual show based on mapping or VJing. But these activists are not only die-hards of clearings and plowed fields (or not), since one of their most memorable evenings took place in December 2016 in a Vendée club, Complex 85.
German club Bayern Munich continued its strong activity on the last day of the transfer window, after Douglas Costa and Erik Maxime Choubou-Moting signed, and officially signed Bona Saar, from the French side, Olympic Marseille.
Sarr is good at playing in the right-back and right-wing positions, which is the reason that may be the main motivation for Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick’s quest to sign him, to support his ranks during the current season.
The 28-year-old Saar started his football career at Guerlain Academy, from which he moved to the Olympique de Marseille youth team, before playing for Metz youth in 2009, the team that started his professional career with his jersey in 2011.
Sarr began his career in the French second division in the 2011/2012 season, and he became essential for the team after falling to the third division in the following season, and he contributed to the team’s return to the second division quickly, before the most prominent achievement, by qualifying directly also to the First Division, which starred In their competitions during the 2014/2015 season, Marseille regained his services for two million euros.
Sarr began his career with Marseille in the right-wing and right-midfield positions, before the 2017/2018 season represented a shift in his career, when coach Rudi Garcia decided to rely on him completely in the right-back position, but Portuguese coach Andre Villach Bouach partnered him between the two center-back And the winger during the last season.
Sarr scored 16 goals during his career, and also made 20 goals, and the graceful player has a distinctive technical skill, as he made forty-nine successful dribbles in the French First Division during the past season, in which he ranked nineteenth among the best dribblers in the competition whose competitions were not completed, due to The emerging crisis of the Corona virus.
Sarr, who scored a goal and scored three goals last season, enjoyed a successful dribbling rate of 85% and showed distinctive defensive abilities, cutting the ball at a rate of 1.2 / matches, making successful interventions at a rate of 2.2 / match, and excelling in bilateral contact rates more than 7 times in One match.
Sarr, who was born in Lyon to a Senegalese father and a Guinean mother, did not have the opportunity to represent the French national team, and he received an invitation to represent the Guinean national team in 2014, but he did not accept the invitation, and he also refused a similar invitation to play for the Senegalese national team in 2018.
They have the flamboyant verb, the assurance of the knowing. They play the indignant opponents on the news channels continuously and make the buzz on social networks, which nickname them the “reassurance”. They are called Didier Raoult, Christian Perronne, Jean-François Toussaint, Laurent Toubiana. They are a microbiologist, infectious disease specialist, professor of physiology or epidemiologist. The fame of the Pr Raoult, director of the IHU in Marseille and a staunch promoter of hydroxychloroquine, is global. All are loaded with diplomas. What do they have in common? A reading of the health situation in reverse of that of their peers: the epidemic is at the end of its course, the virus less dangerous and the obstacles to the social life of city dwellers decreed in recent weeks by the government, unnecessarily liberticide.
They defend this thesis staunchly, even if it means ignoring international research that contradicts them, minimizing the threat to the population or interpreting health data in their own way. For a long time with complete impunity, the uncertainty surrounding the behavior of the virus prompting most of their counterparts to restraint.

“We are at saturation”
“There is a fashion in France that goes beyond medicine, it is hyperrelativism, underlines Philippe Juvin, emergency manager at the Georges-Pompidou hospital in Paris. These speeches are a variation of it. It doesn’t shock me that we are trying to reassure the population. On the other hand, I am surprised by peremptory remarks, steeped in certainties. When you are a scientist, when you have the legitimacy to express yourself and be heard, you have to be extremely careful. ” With the return of Covid patients to hospitals this fall, the debate between reassurance workers and practitioners in the field has turned into open war.
Accused by the Pr Raoult on September 24 from “Bear responsibility for the unreasonable measures taken against Marseille by the Minister of Health” due to messages too “Alarmists”, 19 AP-HM service heads retaliated. In a scathing forum where they recall that the IHU does not have “No resuscitation structure”, they hammer home that their role “Is not to be” alarmist “or to comment, but to treat patients, to calmly plan a response adapted to the health needs of the population […] facing this second wave. “

It is because the “disconnected” speeches, the hospital cannot take any more. Shaken by the first epidemic wave, chronically understaffed, field hospitals fully subscribe to the social restrictions decided by the government. And this even if we are still very far from the health disaster of spring.“Currently, more than 30% of places in intensive care in Ile-de-France are occupied by Covid patients lying on their stomach with a tube in their nose, specifies the Pr Renaud Piarroux, infectious disease specialist at Pitié-Salpêtrière. It is less than in March, but it is already very high for our hospitals, which have all the other patients to treat. There are 300 to 400 deaths from Covid per week in France, this is not a detail. “
For hospital practitioners, the public health issue goes beyond Covid. Infectious disease specialist at Pitié-Salpêtrière, Alexandre Bleibtreu explains: “Today we need to care for Covid patients and others, to ensure that there are resuscitation beds available for everyone. However, when we dedicate 20% of hospital resources to Covid, we are at saturation point. ” Caregivers are therefore forced to sort out patients with Covid and the other pathologies treated … “If we had an infinite number of beds available in medicine, critical care and intensive care, we would not need to force the population. This is not the case”, sighs the Pr Juvin.

“Speech is free”
In view of the tense context, exasperation is mounting against the merchants of hope at little cost. “They scare me very much, says Stéphane Gaudry, resuscitator at Avicenne (Bobigny). If these people manage to unite a part of the population, overwhelmed by the restrictions, there could be a real outcry against the barrier measures and that would be very dangerous. People could take off the masks, refuse to close their bars… There, we would be in an unmanageable situation, we would have nothing left to cushion the shock in hospitals. ” In the cacophony, calls for behavioral responsibility are less likely to carry. “When they hear five scientists say five different things, people don’t understand anything anymore and don’t trust anyone anymore”, estimates the Dr Bleibtreu.
Vice-president of the National Consultative Ethics Committee, Karine Lefeuvre admits: “We are in a country where speech is free. When the scientific debate introduces a doubt likely to call into question the collective solidarity necessary to preserve health, the first of all goods, that poses a problem. ” Nevertheless, she advocates appeasement; “When doctors tell what they experience on a daily basis in hospitals, it helps put expressions that are too disconnected into perspective. International research also helps to counterbalance. We are in a moment of strong tension between individual freedom and collective responsibility. Politics are in their role when they impose restrictions to limit the health risk. ” But Karine Lefeuvre considers it necessary to “Ensure that the constraint is proportionate, limited in time and accompanied by the clearest possible information so as not to create a deep divide between the population and the world of health”.
Zero. The detestable Clasico of September was paid off on Wednesday by the disciplinary committee of the Professional Football League (LFP), which had investigated the altercations between the Brazilian from Paris-SG, Neymar, and the Spaniard from the ‘Olympique de Marseille, Alvaro Gonzalez, after a first set of sanctions targeting the expelled players (five) that evening: nothing for Neymar (who had already taken two games for his expulsion) and nothing for Alvaro.

Neymar was suspected of a homophobic insult to the Spaniard (“Queer”) then, according to the Marseille version, of a racist insult to the Japanese defender Hiroki Sakai, something like “Chinese shit”. Alvaro, he would have qualified Neymar of «Mono», “Monkey” in his language. Convened by Brazilian or French media (the Parisian), lip-reading experts had succeeded each other for three weeks to define the contours of the words used by the players, Neymar for his part maintaining a certain resentment towards his club, the latter having in his opinion not shown support for the height of the seriousness of the facts.
We also felt OM a little tight: a minimum support from the Marseille club (“Alvaro Gonzalez is not racist”, as if that’s the problem) and no firm denials regarding the words Neymar was attributing to their defender. For three weeks, the clubs leaked some form of insurance, hinting that they had the wherewithal to hurt the opposing side on the strength of supposedly uplifting images. The League has drawn the curtain: “After examining the case, hearing the players and representatives of the clubs, the committee noted that it did not have sufficient convincing evidence to allow it to establish the materiality of the facts of discriminatory remarks by the player Alvaro Gonzalez at against Neymar during the meeting, or against Neymar against Alvaro Gonzalez. Consequently, the commission decides that there is no reason for sanction. ”
We can imagine the general relief. Beyond the perimeter of the two clubs concerned: a homophobic or racist insult, it is a basic suspension of ten games, that is to say the lasting weakening of the best defender of the most beloved club in France (l ‘OM) and the disappearance of the main marketing argument of the competition (Neymar) for two months. The decision of the disciplinary committee should make people talk.
STORY – After confinement, the virus circulated among young people during the summer before infecting the older ones.
A month after this incredible period of confinement, mid-June, many are already talking about Covid-19 in the past tense. In Marseille, Professor Didier Raoult predicted that “The epidemic is ending”. More cautious, the president of the Scientific Council, Jean-François Delfraissy, declares that it is in any case “Largely controlled” in the country. The curves are sagging, the entire territory has turned “green”. In hospitals, the decline continues. Social life resumes timidly, the prospect of vacation approaching. And vigilance decreases.
We like to think that the virus flees the sunny days, like a common flu, and we send worries back to the fall. But from the beginning of July, Public Health France points to the accumulation of “Disturbing signals” in a city. Of “Thrills” are noticeable in seaside resorts, in Brittany in particular. Mayenne is a first warning: clusters are multiplying there, and in mid-July, the department exceeds

Some will be delighted to have attended a “real classic” between PSG and OM, Sunday, September 13 in Paris. An “old-fashioned” confrontation embellished with bloodshed, questionable decisions and finally ended with a shower of boxes and an almost general fight at the end of the match. But more the memory of the PSG-OM of yesteryear, often consumed by altercations, during and after the meetings, the sad spectacle given by the two clubs to complete this 3e L1 day especially revived the Paris-Marseille war with the help of a rather pathetic scenario, against a backdrop of insults, racism and homophobia.
→ READ. Racism, the word of champions is slowly released
In sporting terms, the victory of Marseille ended a very long wait on the Canebière. A small goal from Florian Thauvin half an hour into the game allowed the Marseillais to defeat the great Parisian rival for the first time in nine years and thus put an end to a sad series of twenty unsuccessful matches against PSG (17 defeats, 3 draws). ” It’s obviously a great joy, I especially want to congratulate the players, rejoiced André Villas-Boas, the Marseille coach. They were huge. »
A fight against a background of racism?
Unfortunately, the meeting, preceded by a controversy on social networks after the publication by Parisian supporters of offensive homophobic photos, ended with the start of a general fight which ended, in the last seconds, with three exclusions on the Parisian side (Neymar, Paredes, Kurzawa) and two on the Marseille side (Benedetto, Amavi).
A final altercation at the end of a very tense match which quickly took over the sport. In question, the accusations of racism brought by the Parisian star Neymar against the Spanish defender Alvaro Gonzalez who would have called him ” monkey »On the lawn of the Park. What his opponent denies.
According to isolated images broadcast by the Téléfoot channel, Neymar complained shortly after half an hour of play to the referee, repeating over and over again ” racism, no! “(” Racism, no! “, In Spanish), pointing to the defender of OM. At the very end of the match, after his exclusion for slapping the back of Alvaro Gonzalez’s head, Neymar chanted ” Look at the racist! That’s why I hit him! »To the fourth referee and in front of a camera, leaving the pitch.
Insults on social networks
The former Barça player also spread on social networks after the match: “ My only regret is that I didn’t hit that c … in the face », Tweeted the Parisian n ° 10 an hour after the meeting. In the process, Alvaro Gonzalez also posted a message on the same social network: “ There is no room for racism. Clean career and with a lot of comrades every day. Sometimes you have to learn to lose and recognize it in the field. Three incredible points today. Go Om. Gracias familia (thank you family) “.
There is no place for racism. Clean career and with many colleagues and friends on a daily basis. Sometimes you have to learn to lose and take it on the field. Incredible 3 points today. Allez l’OM💙 Thank you family⚪️Ⓜ️🙌🏼 pic.twitter.com/4DuUT1PT0x
The offensive exchanges between the two opponents then continued on these same social networks. ” There are the TV pictures, things will be judged “, For his part reacted the sports director of the Parisian club, Leonardo, on Téléfoot. ” Neymar was a little pissed off, I hope we have nothing to do (with that). I hope that will not put black on our victory. There is no room for racism in football. It’s a Clasico “, Commented André Villas-Boas. A sadly agitated “classic” which could therefore have repercussions in the coming days. But probably not for good reasons.
