Peddlers are likened to US intelligence


ThailandStreet vendors in Bangkok are considered CIA agents, always present first at the protest scene.

The protest groups often kept the location a last-minute secret in an attempt to bypass the Thai government. However, they quickly realized that they were usually second at the scene, after street vendors set up food vans, preparing for a busy evening.

Street vendors are likened to the CIA in the Thai protest movement. Video: AFP.

Rattapol Sukpa, a Bangkok-based butcher, said to catch the trend by following Facebook for hints about the latest protest spots and regularly contacting other street vendors to spread the word.

“I used to sell very well in the past, but it sold out faster at the protest sites,” the 19-year-old said as he set up a stand near Victory Monument.

Business has expanded since the protests began in July, when street vendors became a regular sideline of the protests. A post calling on people to protest at a new location on October 22 contained photos of street vendors with the caption “Get the CIA there first”, referring to the US Central Intelligence Agency.

The protest movement helps Rattapol better balance work and life, allowing him to sell out before 20 o’clock instead of midnight as usual. In addition to calling for a change in the current state of Thailand, such as asking Prime Minister Prayut to resign, drafting a constitution and reforming the monarchy, the demonstrations also provide a rich culinary festival.

Sour pork and sausage rice balls, a specialty of Thailand’s northeastern provinces, hung like a beaded necklace on a peddler’s stroller, ready to be fried and served with cabbage in plastic bags. Sausage sandwiches, soups, cold drinks, fruit and meat skewers are also on the menu.

Some street vendors also carry a motorcycle stovetop, making it easier to get to the gathering spots. Anucha Noipan, a fried chicken seller who typically makes $ 97 a day, says it makes money faster to sell food to the crowd.

“From day-to-day sales at the protest sites, my income has doubled to 192 dollars a day,” the 21-year-old said.

Having just joined the peddlers team after quitting as a rubber worker, Anucha said he agreed to the movement’s request, claiming he wouldn’t sell his fried chicken at rival events, who belong to royal side.

“I have a different political view from the Yellow Vests,” Anucha said, referring to the term for monarchy supporters. Tensions increased last week when police fired tornadoes at protesters in Bangkok’s central shopping district, prompting Thai opposition.

While stirring the chicken thighs in a frying pan, Nattapol Sai-ngarm said he was fully aware of all the risks involved in doing business in this environment. But the economic downturn caused by Covid-19 left him with no other choice.

“I used to be very scared” when I saw the police appear in the protest, but now “I come here every day so I am used to it,” Nattapol said.

Saturday and Monday



Saturday from the 29e week in ordinary time (Lk 13: 1-9)

“The people reported to Jesus the matter of the Galileans that Pilate had slain …” We would think we were reading the newspaper that tells us about massacres, building collapses, storms, droughts, so many evils caused by the violence of nature or of men who daily kill innocent people and bring astonishment, pain, unanswered questions.

Where is God? And if he is the omnipotence of love, why does he not stop the terrorist’s arm and the unleashing of the wind? It is very difficult for us not to look for a hidden fault in the victims and a ” God’s will “ to punish. But God has done his work of creation by withdrawing and he is fully by our side, helplessly watching the suffering of humans, with infinite pain in the measure without measure of his infinite love.

“But if you do not convert, you will all perish likewise. ” These people who perished, who perish are simple sinners, like us. If we believe that Jesus is God-with-us, then let’s convert, turn to him; to turn away from him would be a certain death of our inner life. And let us have confidence, because God is patient, infinitely, he gives us time. If we are attentive, we recognize the discreet signs of his presence, he believes in us and in the fruitfulness of our life.

Monday from the 30e week in ordinary time (Lk 13, 10-17)

There are a lot of symbolic elements in this text. So the woman is “Linked” by a “Sick mind” and Jesus the “Detach from this link”. The term for this deliverance (v. 15) is the one used when we “Untie his ox or his donkey” (v. 16). Her infirmity, moreover, keeps her in a position which condemns her to look at the ground. It forbids him the vertical position, this mark of humanity which allows the word to be well heard, to the gaze to see well, to foresee, to discern, to anticipate. His relationship to others and to the world is therefore heavily altered. She is prevented from looking up, towards the sky, which represented the place of the divinity. Besides, as soon as she is healed, she raises her praise to God. She perceived that it is not she who “stands up”. The verb, in fact, is in the passive. It is therefore through an Other that she “Is rectified”. This “bent” woman here becomes the symbol of a crippled humanity, deprived of any relationship with God and yet called by him to deliverance. The term that says this “bent” position often meant, at the time, all the “bent” of society, the poor, the weak, the oppressed. They have not disappeared today. Come join those who live withdrawn into their “I”, those who are “closed” in their solitude, those whose “down-to-earth” gaze reduces their existence to materialism … May God straighten them out when life brings them back “Curve” and lift their eyes to the hope that He offers.

Iliad sells part of its mobile towers in Poland



Posted on Oct 23, 2020 at 12:09 PMUpdated Oct 23, 2020, 12:15 PM

Things didn’t take long. A month after launching its friendly takeover bid for 2.2 billion euros on Polish mobile operator Play, Iliad, the parent company of Free, is already selling part of its new network in the country. Xavier Niel’s group will create a “tower company” bringing together the 7,000 mobile branches of Play and sell 60% of this company to the Spanish Cellnex for 800 million euros.

Free exports a model he knows well to Poland. In May 2019, Free had already sold part of its mobile towers in France to Cellnex for 1.4 billion euros. As in Poland, the operator then kept a minority stake (30%) in the company. Also with Cellnex, a similar operation in Italy, where Iliad launched in 2018, brought 600 million euros into the coffers.

More generally, this model is spreading in Europe. Faced with heavy investments in 5G or fiber, more and more operators are selling part of their mobile or fixed networks to specialized companies, in order to generate cash or get out of debt.

Stay number 1 and finance 5G

This time, the operation allows Iliad to reduce the buyout of Play by 800 million. This takeover bid, which must be completed at the end of November, is crucial for Iliad: by winning over the 15 million customers of Play, the leading mobile operator in Poland, Xavier Niel’s group becomes the 6th mobile operator in Europe, with 41 million euros. ‘subscribers. But it is far from being financially neutral, since it is also increasing its level of debt, with a debt / Ebitda ratio dropping from 2.2 to 3.2.

With this booty, Iliad will be able to densify its mobile network to remain the local number 1. The operation could also help the group to finance the deinstallation of the Huawei antennas used by Play, if ever Poland decides to ban the Chinese group from the 5G market. Finally, as in Italy, Free intends to arrive in Poland on the fixed market by bringing its Freeboxes. This too will require investment.

Poland, Cellnex’s third market

With this agreement, Cellnex meanwhile arrives in Poland, which becomes its 9th country. Over the course of the acquisitions, the Spanish became the first European “tower co”, with 61,000 pylons spread across Europe against only 7,000 in 2014. But it was not yet present in Eastern Europe.

In addition to the purchase of the 7,000 existing pylons, Cellnex has undertaken to build 5,000 new sites over ten years for 1.3 billion euros. Poland will then become its third market behind Italy and France, but ahead of Spain.

Poland is one of the largest economies in Eastern Europe, with almost 40 million inhabitants and a GDP which, in relative terms, is doing better than that of the European Union as a whole Explains Tobias Martinez, CEO of Cellnex. The Barcelona group does not intend to stop there: this summer, Cellnex carried out a capital increase of 4 billion euros to be able to finance future acquisitions in Europe, the amount of which could reach … 11 billion euros.

The father of Estelle Mouzin launches “an urgent and solemn appeal” to the media, not to divulge “the most cruel details” on the case



If it is “essential” to recall the subject, writes Éric Mouzin, one must not allow the criminals to “revel” in the account of “their crimes” and to transform the public into “voyeur”.

The father of Estelle Mouzin, who disappeared on January 9, 2003, launches in a press release entitled “Respect”, a “urgent and solemn appeal” to the media “to take up the ethical challenge which is imposed on them to ensure fair and complete information, while respecting the memory of all these child victims”.

If the girl’s father has “appreciated” the “important role played by the media over the past 17 years”, to prevent this file from ending “in closed case”, he asks them for more restraint. Certain elements of investigations, details “cruel” recently appeared in the press. Estelle Mouzin’s father hopes that these “leaks will not be detrimental to the continuation of the investigation”.

Thus, the father of Estelle Mouzin, believes that this “couple of suspects”, Monique Olivier and Michel Fourniret, whose names he refuses to write in this press release, sow “the horror”. Michel Fourniret indicted in several cases of rape and homicide of minors, “delights”, during hearings, “to be able to further destroy the families of victims by detailing the conditions under which he had committed his crimes with great pleasure in lodging morbid and traumatic descriptions in their minds”.

Éric Mouzin writes that he “It is essential to recall the subject: it is the rape of very young children by a particularly formidable pervert”. According to him, “to disclose today the most cruel details of their crimes as evoked during the hearings or to transform their lives into quasi-romantic fictions amounts to allowing this couple of criminals to continue their work of death by amplifying the diffusion of atrocities that they committed “.

Read in the media, “the circumstances in which these crimes were committed”, not only spread “the trauma” the entourage, but also makes readers, listeners, viewers, “all voyeurs”. For journalists, the disappearance of Estelle Mouzin is a “topic”, but for relatives, “it is about the murder of our child”.

Michel Fourniret, 78, was indicted in November 2019 for “kidnapping and forcible confinement followed by death”. This indictment took place after the statements of the ex-wife of Michel Fourniret, Monique Olivier, who claimed that her ex-husband kidnapped, kidnapped and killed the girl to the judge in charge of the case. The body of the girl who disappeared in 2003 has not been found.

Does one in five young French people have trouble reading a cinema program, as François-Xavier Bellamy asserts?


François-Xavier Bellamy, guest of Radio France on October 11, 2020 (FRANCEINTER / RADIOFRANCE)

In his speech on separatism, Emmanuel Macron said he wanted “teach more Arabic language at school”. A proposal that made the LR MEP, François-Xavier Bellamy, questioned Sunday 11 October, by franceinfo, France Inter and The world. “The real answer to this separatism is once again to teach French to all the children of France”, he estimated. “When you have one in five young French people, at 18 – this is the official statistic, that which is carried out on the occasion of Defense and Citizenship Day – who has difficulty deciphering a cinema program, I am sorry it’s a major drama “, argued François-Xavier Bellamy. This statistic does exist.

The statistic mentioned by Francois-Xavier Bellamy corresponds to a small French test that young people aged 16 to 25 undergo each year during Defense and Citizenship Day (compulsory day for all young people established under Jacques Chirac). In 2019, out of nearly 500,000 young people who made this day, the Ministry of Youth indeed reports that one in ten young French people have reading difficulties.

In detail, we can see that one test in particular caused them a problem: collecting information from a cinema program. This test, named, “complex comprehension test” was successful by the vast majority of young people, but a little over 20%, conversely, struggled with it. Young people who had difficulty deciphering this cinema program are in the categories “poor reader”, “reader with very poor reading skills” or “reader with severe difficulties”.

Be careful, however, this study also shows that reading performance increases with the level of study. Thus, it is especially young people who have not gone beyond college level who have greater reading difficulties.

The trafficker’s love trick


Tuyen QuangVu A Lenh, 30 years old, with a dashing look, pretended to fall in love with a 34-year-old girl who sold across the border after three meetings.

According to the records of the Police Criminal Police Department of Tuyen Quang province, Lenh, while working as a hired laborer in China, knew the couple Lau Thi Say, 35 years old and Sung Sinh Po, 42 years old, living in Meo Vac district, Ha Giang.

The money-hungry tent should accept Say’s suggestion about finding Vietnamese women to sell to China for profit. According to the agreement, Lenh will find “goods” in Vietnam, while the Say and his wife hook up them for sale.

Because he was looking for a wife, in August 2019, Lenh received a phone number of 34-year-old sister Sin, who lives in Yen Son district, Tuyen Quang. Lenh then sent a text message to get acquainted and introduce the name Dai, who lives in Meo Vac district, Ha Giang.

At the same time, he repeatedly urged the Say and his wife to find someone to buy Sin. However, the Say and his wife told Lenhnh to keep cheating to show the guests to China, then it would be easy to negotiate the price.

In September 2019, Lenh dressed nicely, riding a motorbike to meet Sin in Hung Loi commune, Yen Son district. I was married but I had no children, so I got divorced. Super-hearted, Ms. Sin invited her home to meet her parents, but she refused.

Returning after the first meeting, Hien kept sending a message promising to marry Sin and after they got married, the two went to China to work as hired labor. Sin’s sweet words made Sister Sin believe. A few days later, Ung met for a second time and continued to solicit him to be his wife. When the victim told her to ask for permission from his parents, Canh pretended to be angry and tried to persuade him, but failed.

Twice “empty-handed”, Hien did not give up and half a month later, she called Sin to ask her to ask for a decent wedding and bring her home in Ha Giang to show her parents. On September 14, 2019, the Tent alone took a motorbike to pick up Sin and still refused to enter the house. I got married in the hometown, I don’t need to consult my parents, but when it’s all over, I will notify them. Sin heard her ears so she took out her phone to take a picture of Tent and the motorbike sent back to her cousin via Facebook message and followed back to Ha Giang.

On the way, Lenh called Say and Pa to bargain that their “goods” had not been married, so they had to get 12,000-13,000 yuan (about 38-42 million dong) and had to make quick transactions to return home. Tent and Say met each other for a transaction at the Vietnam-China border marker in Thuong Phung commune, Meo Vac district at dawn.

On the morning of September 15, 2019, Lenh took Sister Sin to the meeting point and introduced to the couple: “This is your parents’ daughter-in-law”. “Sin was a little suspicious, then confirmed by Say” was her father. mom”.

According to the plan discussed, the Tent said that the road ahead was filled with ghosts, so if passing through, it would be bad luck, Sin just followed his “parents” and he chased after his motorbike. Believing her lover’s words, Sin followed Say to China and fell into the hands of a trafficker group.

On the evening of September 15, 2019, Say called to report that Ms. Sin was too bad to have a buyer, but Lenh continuously urged it to speed up. Two days later, Say returned and said that she had sold Sin for 13,000 yuan, so she paid the Tent 10,000 and kept 3,000. The hut then went to the center of Meo Vac district to exchange 10,000 yuan for nearly 32 million VND for personal consumption.

At the same time Sin was missing, her family filed a police report. After more than a month in detention, she escaped back to Vietnam. The police tracked down the clue to arrest Hut and Po. Drunk is on the run.

Lieutenant Colonel Hoan Minh Tuan, Head of the Prevention of Social Evils and Human Trafficking, Criminal Police Division, said that the camp is quite outstanding compared to many local men, so it is easy to sympathize with women. Tent’s human trafficking tricks are not new, but take advantage of the custom of arresting wives and the belief of “lover” to deceive.

Recently, Lenh and Po were sentenced to 8 years and 6 months and 8 years in prison for crimes Human trafficking, under Article 150 of the 2015 Penal Code.
