Discriminated and marginalized LGBT + people in Egypt, Poland and Japan

While France announced Wednesday, October 14 a plan to 150 measures to strengthen people’s rights LGBT + (Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Trans, Queers), franceinfo looks back on the news of discrimination against these LGBT + people in Japan, Poland and Egypt.

Japan, the only G7 country without a legal framework for same-sex unions

In Japan, being LGBT + still condemns you today, with a few exceptions, to silence or marginality. Marriage for all here is probably not for tomorrow, as is feared by the recurring positions taken by members of the omnipotent Liberal Democratic Party in power. An elected official, Mio Sugita, regularly hits the headlines with her homophobic remarks and a mayor of a district in Tokyo recently had to apologize for saying that “if the law came to protect gays and lesbians, [sa] constituency would not survive. “

Little by little, over the years and especially among young people, acceptance and understanding progress. Large companies are working to eliminate discrimination when there is a very strong reluctance to come out in the workplace. Municipalities issue certificates of cohabitation, which make it easier for homosexual couples to rent an apartment or to carry out joint proceedings. Information desks or advice centers are opening in large cities, as recently in Tokyo, and the government is also taking some initiatives in the right direction.

Addressing the LGBT + subject is less taboo as the success of the film shows Midnight Swan, on a transgender, which attracts a young audience even if it is also debated. But beware of the showcase effect. If a few homosexual or transgender people have been present on television for a long time, they are unfortunately often pretext stars that mask a very different social reality.

In Poland, a new openly homophobic Minister of Education

The new Minister of Education, Przemyslaw Czarnek, was ttested positive for Covid-19 last week, and could not be sworn in, but that hasn’t stopped several protests across the country. Students also came to school dressed in black as a sign of mourning. Because Przemyslaw Czarnek, is known in Poland for his attacks against the LGBT + community. This member of the ultraconservative Law and Justice party, for example, declared that LGBT + people were not equal to others.

Anti LGBT + rhetoric is frequent in Poland, as we saw in particular during the presidential election campaign. The head of state Andrzej Duda had spoken of an ideology more dangerous than communism. A climate which has led to numerous protests in the streets of Poland.

Poland is often called to order by European declarations. In early August 2020, the European Union refused to provide funding to six Polish cities that had declared themselves “free” from “LGBT ideology”. But that does not seem to move the Polish government. The Minister of Justice had also qualified this decision as illegal. A government that does not hesitate – moreover – to threaten the EU not to vote for its recovery plan, if the payment of funds is conditioned on respect for the rule of law.

Egypt refuses to recognize the very existence of LGBT + people

In a report published two weeks ago, the NGO Human Rights Watch reports arbitrary arrests and torture of LGBT + people in Egyptian prisons. The testimonies gathered in this report are chilling. In police stations and in prisons, LGBT + detainees are humiliated, threatened, beaten, placed in solitary confinement for days. They are, in the majority of cases, sexually harassed and raped. Ahmed Alaa was jailed for three months. He now lives in exile in Canada: “An officer sexually harassed me. And, along with other officers, they told the inmates that I was the gay in segregation. As a result, I started receiving rape threats. “

Thehomosexuality is not, however, criminalized in Egypt. To carry out these sentences, the Egyptian courts use the very vague concept of “incitement to debauchery”. The sentences sometimes go up to several years of detention. Police are now creating fake accounts on dating apps to trick LGBT + people.

Technique used in particular since the last wave of large-scale arrests: in September 2017, rainbow flags were waved in public during a concert in Cairo. Seventy-five people will be arrested in the following months. Among them, the activist Sarah Hegazy. In exile in Canada, the young woman committed suicide four months ago. A life shattered by prison and torture. Symbol of the trauma of the victims targeted by the systematic repression exercised by the regime of President Al Sisi.

DIRECT. First evening under curfew for Ile-de-France and eight major cities



What there is to know

Some 20 million inhabitants of Ile-de-France and eight large cities on maximum alert are preparing to live, Saturday, October 17, their first evening under curfew, a major measure decided by the government to stem the epidemic of Covid-19 in strong rebound.

Since midnight Saturday, the inhabitants of Ile-de-France and the metropolitan areas of Lyon, Lille, Toulouse, Montpellier, Saint-Etienne, Aix-Marseille, Rouen and Grenoble have the obligation to stay at home between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. , except exceptions.

The government defends curfews as the only measure to prevent a re-containment, at a time when the indicators in France are deteriorating, and when the World Health Organization (WHO) judges the situation “very worrying” in the rest of Europe.

The derogatory certificate is now online. The Interior Ministry has published the certificate required to waive the curfew, as well as the supporting document filled in by the employer for business trips. Medical emergencies, visiting a loved one, walking animals or even traveling long distances are accepted reasons, not cultural activities. On the way or at the exit of stations and airports, plane and train tickets will prevail.

Authorized holiday departures. However, the government has not banned travel within the country as the All Saints holidays begin. Some territories, however, wanted to anticipate an influx of tourists, such as the seaside resort of Touquet-Paris-Plage, which will in turn establish a curfew. In Loire-Atlantique and Vendée, the prefectures have taken measures to expand the obligation to wear the mask.

The increase in intensive care admissions continues. France has recorded 122 deaths linked to Covid-19 over the last 24 hours, a figure which tends to climb, as well as that of admissions in intensive care, according to official figures published Friday evening. New admissions to hospital intensive care units continue their marked increase: 171 patients on Monday, 226 Tuesday, 193 Wednesday, 219 Thursday and 212 Friday.

MENU. Covid-19: discover the cities where the curfew is in place from Saturday



The entire Ile-de-France region, as well as the metropolitan areas of Grenoble, Lille, Lyon, Aix-Marseille, Montpellier, Rouen, Saint-Etienne and Toulouse, will be subject to a curfew between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. at least four weeks.

The announcement was expected. The President of the Republic has decreed a curfew for the Ile-de-France region and eight metropolises from Saturday. In addition to Paris, the metropolitan areas of Lille, Grenoble, Lyon, Aix-Marseille, Montpellier, Rouen, Toulouse and Saint-Etienne are affected by this measure, for at least four weeks.

Fines of 135 euros will be imposed for non-compliance with the curfew and exemptions will be granted, for example for those who “come home from work after 9 p.m., or work at night”, said the head of state. The latter added that“there will be no transport restrictions” during curfew.

Furthermore, the executive did “not decided to reduce travel between regions”, stressed Emmanuel Macron, for whom these measures will not prevent the French from going on All Saints holidays which begin on Friday evening.

Covid-19: Is the curfew effective in fighting the epidemic?


The French will soon have to deal with an additional rule to fight the Covid-19 epidemic. Emmanuel Macron confirmed, Wednesday, October 14, that anot curfew between 9 p.m. and 6 a.m. would apply from Saturday, October 17, in Ile-de-France and in eight metropolises (Grenoble, Lille, Lyon, Aix-Marseille, Montpellier, Rouen, Saint-Etienne and Toulouse). The latter will last at least “four weeks”, but could be extended to six weeks with the agreement of parliamentarians.

How is this measure justified scientifically? Has it proven its effectiveness in breaking the chains of contamination? Here are some answers.

>> Covid-19: curfew, exceptional aid, self-tests … What to remember from Emmanuel Macron’s announcements

Little data is available on the effectiveness of the curfew in controlling an epidemic. Before the Covid-19 crisis, this measure had never been introduced for health reasons, recalls the historian Patrick Zylberman, quoted by The Parisian (paid item). However “what is called the curfew is a measure which is relevant”, assured Emmanuel Macron Wednesday evening, because it allows “the slowing down of social contacts”.

To justify the implementation of such a measure, the president notably used the example of Guyana, where the curfew was tested. according to variable modalities since spring. According to a study pre-published Monday, to which the Institut Pasteur contributed, and that Release relayed, it has reduced the rate of transmission of the virus by 36%. “Due to the curfew, we have benefited from a halving of the peak of intensive care hospitalizations”, Clara de Bort, director of the Guyana Regional Health Agency, also explained to franceinfo.

“Since deconfinement, we can clearly see that all the precautionary measures, such as wearing a mask, physical distancing, encouraging teleworking and banning large gatherings, are not obstacles but brakes to ‘epidemic”, add in Release Mircea Sofonea, lecturer in epidemiology of infectious diseases at the University of Montpellier (Hérault). “The R0 is currently between 1 and 1.3. We still need about half a point of decline to get the situation under control. “, she adds to justify the implementation of such a measure.

“Of course, in small towns this does not help and does not change anything, but there is no denying a certain nightlife in Paris, Madrid or Berlin”, also falls for 20 minutes Michaël Rochoy, general practitioner and head of clinic at the University of Lille (North). And the expert to indicate that“we know that we are twice as likely to be contaminated in restaurants or bars than elsewhere”.

Other specialists are more divided. “The problem is that we cannot establish a certain correlation [entre couvre-feu et réduction des contaminations] since the curfew was not the only measure imposed in Guyana to contain the virus “, underlines Michèle Legeas, teacher at the School of Advanced Studies in Public Health, specialist in the analysis and management of health risk situations, in 20 minutes.

Otherwise, “we do not really know when and how the transmission of the coronavirus takes place”, even if “we see today [qu’il] circulates a lot in France in the 15-45 age group“and that we “suppose this age group comes out at night”, she says.

Finally, if it makes it possible to limit the economic consequences on companies, the curfew does not replace the closure of the places which constitute the main clusters, underline experts. “It’s a lot in business, in universities and schools”, notes Nathan Peiffer-Smadja, infectious disease specialist at CHU Bichat, in Paris, on franceinfo.

Lcompanies outside healthcare establishments (25%), the school environment and university (21%) the extended family environment and public / private events temporarily bringing together people (17%) are thus the main foci of transmission outside nursing homes, underlines Public Health France, in its last weekly update of October 8. It would therefore have been necessary to insist more on “teleworking which is important because we see a lot of clusters in business”, valued Nathan Peiffer-Smadja.

• Un couvre-feu entre 21 heures et 6 heures est mis en place à partir de samedi en Ile-de-France et dans les métropoles de Grenoble, Lille, Lyon, Aix-Marseille, Montpellier, Rouen, Saint-Etienne et Toulouse. Jean Castex et plusieurs ministres tiendront une conférence de presse à 14 heures pour apporter des précisions. Suivez notre direct.

Des perquisitions ont été menées ce matin chez le ministre de la Santé Olivier Véran, le directeur général de la santé Jérôme Salomon, l’ancien Premier ministre Edouard Philippe, l’ex-ministre de la Santé Agnès Buzyn et l’ancienne porte-parole du gouvernement Sibeth N’Diaye. Elles ont lieu dans le cadre de l’information judiciaire ouverte début juillet par la Cour de justice de la République pour leur gestion de la crise sanitaire. Suivez notre direct.

• Plusieurs syndicats et collectifs des hôpitaux appellent à la grève aujourd’hui pour réclamer des embauches “massives” et une revalorisation “significative” des salaires. On vous explique dans cet article pourquoi ils restent mobilisés malgré les annonces du Ségur de la Santé.

La Ligue de football professionnel (LFP) a “mis en demeure” Mediapro, diffuseur principal de la Ligue 1, de régler ses échéances de droits télévisés et n’écarte pas de se tourner vers d’autres opérateurs, selon un courrier adressé aux clubs et consulté aujourd’hui par l’AFP.

13h58 : @Astros : Emmanuel Macron a annoncé que cette prime concernerait “les bénéficiaires du RSA et des APL”. Mais il a ensuite ajouté que l’exécutif proposerait “la même chose que ce que l’on a fait au printemps”. Or, à l’époque, les bénéficiaires de l’allocation de solidarité spécifique avaient bien été inclus dans le décret sur l’aide d’urgence de 150 euros. Il y a donc des chances que vous puissiez y prétendre de nouveau, même s’il faut encore attendre une confirmation officielle.

13h59 : Bonjour, les allocataires chômage touchant les ASS sont ils concernés par l’aide de 150 € ?

14h01 : @Oliv : Interrogé sur le footing, ce matin, sur franceinfo, le porte-parole du gouvernement, Gabriel Attal, a répondu ceci : “Je pars du principe que les règles qui s’appliquaient pendant le confinement peuvent continuer à s’appliquer”. Il a surtout renvoyé aux précisions qui doivent être communiquées à partir de 14 heures.

13h58 : Bonjour FI. Toujours la même question : la pratique sportive est elle un motif de sortie après 21h ? En effet, ne serait-il pas cohérent de ne pas agglutiner tous les runners de Paris au moment où tout le monde rentre chez soi? Merci pour votre réponse

13h58 : @nathalie : Il y a lieu privé et lieu privé. Si vous faites allusion à une habitation, il n’y a pas de limite, car l’Etat n’a pas la main sur les rassemblements chez les particuliers. En revanche, dans les lieux privés recevant du public (par exemple pour des mariages), une limite à 30 personnes a été fixée dans une grande partie du territoire – et, en zone d’alerte maximale, la plupart de ces établissements ont même dû fermer complètement.

13h58 : bonjour, quel est le nombre de personnes maximum autorisées lors d’un rassemblement en famille dans un lieu privé?Merci

13h55 : Une commission qui “va associer l’ensemble des forces politiques” va étudier un éventuel report des élections départementales et régionales prévues en mars 2021, a indiqué le porte-parole du gouvernement Gabriel Attal sur franceinfo.

13h56 : @Auryan @Voyageuse : Vous êtes nombreux à vous interroger sur les voyages pendant le couvre-feu. Tout dépendra sûrement du motif de votre déplacement, même si nous attendons des précisions de la part de l’exécutif sur ce point – et tant d’autres – à 14 heures.

13h55 : Bonjour, nous avons réservé 2 jours dans un parc et avons des réservations de train depuis longtemps avec une arrivée prévue à 22 heures à Lyon et sans possibilité de prendre un train plus tôt… Comment faire ? Merci et bonne journée…

13h55 : Comment ça se passe pour les hôtels ? Je dois arriver dans un hôtel après 21 heures en voiture le week-end prochain. Pas le choix de partir plus tôt. Merci

13h48 : @Pascal : La question n’a pas encore été tranchée officiellement mais votre cas relèvera probablement d’un motif familial impérieux vous permettant de bénéficier d’une dérogation. A moins que l’organisateur de la colonie, que je vous invite à contacter, ne décide de retarder le départ.

13h49 : Bonjour, mes enfants partent en colo samedi à 5h30 à Lyon. Puis-je les amener malgré le couvre-feu ?

13h46 : Invité sur France Inter, le directeur général de l’Agence régionale de santé d’Ile-de-France, Aurélien Rousseau, a assuré que les nouvelles mesures annoncées par Emmanuel Macron sont venues combler un angle mort : “C’était la sphère privée, les moments festifs ou non festifs”.

13h39 : Le couvre-feu a des répercussions immédiates sur les cinémas. Les séances de 20 heures et 22 heures seront en effet annulées et le risque de fermeture des salles après la Toussaint est réel. “On est dépités, pour ne pas utiliser un mot plus fort. Dans les cinémas, il n’y a pas eu de cluster. Pas de problème particulier avec le Covid-19, déclare à franceinfo l’exploitante et fondatrice d’une société de distribution, Sophie Dulac.

13h38 : @Nathanael : Sur ce point, Emmanuel Macron a assuré que “l’offre de transports en commun sera évidemment mobilisée” et qu’“il n’y aura pas de restrictions des transports” dans les zones sous couvre-feu. Les trains continueront de rouler mais seulement pour “des déplacements pour des bonnes raisons” – qui restent encore à préciser…

13h38 : Les trains déjà réservés arrivant après 21 heures dimanche prochain se verront-ils interdits de circuler ? Leurs horaires seront-ils modifiés par la SNCF ?

13h29 : “Je ne trouve pas que ces perquisitions soient opportunes, il y a une judiciarisation de la vie politique. C’est plus une mise en scène qu’autre chose”, a déploré de son côté sur LCI le député LFI Eric Coquerel.

13h29 : “Ce n’est pas l’urgence aujourd’hui, on doit lutter contre la deuxième vague et je ne suis pas persuadé qu’on doive perdre du temps avec ça.”

Des perquisitions ont été menées chez Olivier Véran, Agnès Buzyn et Edouard Philippe dans le cadre de l’enquête sur la gestion critiquée de la crise du coronavirus en France. Jean-Christophe Lagarde a assuré sur BFMTV qu’il ne croit “pas à la responsabilité pénale des ministres dans cette affaire”.

13h17 : Des citations de George Orwell fleurissent sur les réseaux sociaux depuis l’annonce par le chef de l’Etat de mesures restrictives pour lutter contre le virus. Exemple : “En dehors du travail, tout sera interdit… Marcher dans les rues, se distraire, chanter, danser…”. Méfiance, elles sont fausses, éclaire Numérama, qui parle d’une “tromperie intellectuelle et culturelle”.

13h16 : Vous vous posez des questions sur “la règle des six”, instaurée par Emmanuel Macron ? Le président a demandé aux Français de ne pas se réunir à plus de six personnes. L’objectif : limiter les contacts pour ralentir la propagation du virus. Tous les détails dans cet article.

12h55 : Huis clos pour certains matchs de championnat ou de coupe, des sessions de nuit de Bercy qui devront s’adapter, une aide prévue pour les clubs professionnels touchés par le couvre-feu… Les conséquences sur le monde du sport sont nombreuses. Francetvsport fait le point dans cet article.

12h41 : #ONVOUSREPOND @couette : Comme nous l’avons répété plusieurs fois ces dernières heures dans ce direct (n’hésitez pas à bien remonter notre fil avant de nous poser des questions), le rendez-vous est prévu à 14 heures. Vous pourrez suivre la conférence de presse dans ce direct. Au casting : le Premier ministre, Jean Castex, et les ministres de l’Economie, Bruno Le Maire, de l’Intérieur, Gérald Darmanin, du Travail, Elisabeth Borne, et de la Santé, Olivier Véran.

12h37 : A quelle heure est prévue la conférence de presse du Premier ministre ?

12h21 : Le président de la Confédération des petites et moyennes entreprises (CPME), François Asselin, a demandé aujourd’hui sur franceinfo un “nouveau scénario de sortie du prêt garanti par l’Etat”. Il souhaite que toutes les dettes soient regroupées “pour pouvoir les étaler sur plusieurs années” et un report de la date de début du remboursement. Les remboursements doivent normalement commencer à partir du mois d’avril.

12h15 : Vous étiez plus de 20 millions de téléspectateurs à suivre l’interview d’Emmanuel Macron sur TF1 et France 2 hier, durant laquelle le président a annoncé des couvre-feux en Ile-de-France et dans huit métropoles pour endiguer l’épidémie.

12h14 : Il est midi, voici un nouveau point sur l’actualité très dense de ce jeudi :

Des perquisitions ont été menées ce matin chez le ministre de la Santé Olivier Véran, le directeur général de la santé Jérôme Salomon, l’ancien Premier ministre Edouard Philippe, l’ex-ministre de la Santé Agnès Buzyn et l’ancienne porte-parole du gouvernement Sibeth N’Diaye. Elles ont lieu dans le cadre de l’information judiciaire ouverte début juillet par la Cour de justice de la République pour leur gestion de la crise sanitaire.

• Un couvre-feu entre 21 heures et 6 heures est mis en place à partir de samedi en Ile-de-France et dans les métropoles de Grenoble, Lille, Lyon, Aix-Marseille, Montpellier, Rouen, Saint-Etienne et Toulouse. Jean Castex et plusieurs ministres tiendront une conférence de presse à 14 heures pour apporter des précisions.

• Plusieurs syndicats et collectifs des hôpitaux appellent à la grève aujourd’hui pour réclamer des embauches “massives” et une revalorisation “significative” des salaires. On vous explique dans cet article pourquoi ils restent mobilisés malgré les annonces du Ségur de la Santé.

• Le gouvernement va instaurer un malus automobile pour les SUV de plus de 1 800 kilos. La demande émanait notamment de la Convention citoyenne pour le climat et de WWF France qui avait appelé à “faire rentrer la question du poids” de ces véhicules “dans le bonus-malus”.

12h01 : “Le timing, au lendemain des annonces d’Emmanuel Macron, montre que la CJR est indépendante, ça envoie un bon signal.”

Pour Yassine Bouzrou, avocat de trois des neufs plaignants devant la Cour de justice de la République, “ces perquisitions montrent que la CJR prend le dossier au sérieux. On ne pensait pas qu’il y aurait des investigations aussi rapides, et surtout aussi importantes, car des perquisitions au domicile et au bureau de ministres, ça n’est pas anodin.”

11h44 : Les enquêteurs étaient accompagnés ce matin de spécialistes en informatique. Il s’agissait de saisir et de mettre sous scellés du matériel informatique, a appris France Télévisions de source proche de l’enquête. Les membres de la commission d’instruction de la CJR recherchent d’éventuelles preuves (rapports non publics, courriels professionnels…) montrant le degré de connaissance dont disposait le gouvernement, alertes dont il n’aurait pas tenu compte. L’exemple le plus emblématique étant celui des masques.

11h35 : Vous comptez rejoindre votre famille pendant les vacances de la Toussaint ? Si oui, comment comptez-vous concilier les gestes barrières et les retrouvailles ? Vous pouvez témoigner et nous laisser vos coordonnées ici. Elles resteront confidentielles.

11h42 : Les perquisitions sont toujours en cours au ministère de la Santé. Pour Edouard Philippe, elles ont eu lieu à son domicile et à la mairie du Havre. Le domicile de Sibeth Ndiaye, ex-porte-parole du gouvernement, a également été perquisitionné, a appris franceinfo de source proche du dossier.

11h43 : “Dans les cinémas, il n’y a pas eu de cluster.”

Avec l’instauration du couvre-feu, les séances de 20 heures et 22 heures seront annulées et le risque de fermeture des salles après la Toussaint est réel. “Je trouve ça un peu injuste d’être dans cet amalgame de couvre-feu”, réagit pour franceinfo culture Sophie Dulac, distributrice, productrice et exploitante.

11h21 : Après les nouvelles mesures annoncées hier soir par Emmanuel Macron, les spécialistes de franceinfo répondront aux questions des auditeurs de 13h10 à 14 heures. Une ligne ouverte qui sera animée par Frédéric Carbonne. Vous pouvez poser vos questions au 01 56 40 41 11.


11h20 : #ONVOUSREPOND @Seb : Selon les chiffres officiels, le nombre de lits d’hospitalisation complète a baissé de 4 172 dans les hôpitaux et les cliniques en 2018 et de 3 408 en 2019, pour atteindre un total légèrement inférieur à 400 000 lits. Dans le même temps, le nombre de places en hospitalisation “de jour” a progressé de 1 839 lits en 2018 puis de 1 499 en 2019.

11h19 : Combien de milliers de lits fermés depuis 2017 ? Et ça continue !?! Merci Macron, Buzyn, Véran entre autres adeptes d’un lean management criminel.

11h19 : Le député (LR) Jean-Luc Reitzer, contaminé par le coronavirus et placé en réanimation pendant quatre semaines, s’est dit “sous le choc” en apprenant les perquisitions chez plusieurs membres et ex-membres du du gouvernement ce matin. “On a appris, chaque semaine, chaque mois”, a-t-il estimé sur BFMTV.

11h07 : Bonjour @mick Non bien sûr, ce serait une rupture de l’égalité. Tous les bénéficiaires du RSA et des APL vont recevoir une aide de 150 euros, avec 100 euros de plus par enfant, comme au printemps. Cette aide est ponctuelle. Je préfère cette aide exceptionnelle, massive, comparable à ce que nous avons fait au printemps, plutôt qu’une transformation de nos minima sociaux“, a indiqué le chef de l’Etat hier.

10h56 : Bonjour, les aides annoncées pour les bénéficiaires du RSA et des APL sont-elles réservées aux habitants des zones avec couvre-feu ? Merci d’avance

10h40 : Sur Twitter, l’avocat Thibault de Montbrial s’étonne de la date de ces perquisitions, menées au lendemain des annonces d’Emmanuel Macron et en pleine gestion de la deuxième vague de coronavirus.

10h36 : @Toulouse – Paris : Bonjour. Sur notre antenne, le porte-parole du gouvernement a laissé entendre que les exceptions prévues lors du confinement (notamment pour les déménagements ne pouvant être différés) vaudront de nouveau à compter de samedi. Quoi qu’il en soit, “à chaque fois qu’on a mis en place de nouvelles règles, il y a toujours eu un petit délai d’adaptation et de pédagogie”, sans verbalisation, a-t-il précisé. Allez-y sans crainte et bon courage !

10h39 : Bonjour, j’ai un déménagement de planifié depuis des semaines pour ce samedi 17 octobre de Toulouse à la proche banlieue sud parisienne. Le risque est grand que le déménagement ne puisse pas se terminer avant 21 heures. Une exception est-elle prévue pour les déménagements (comme c’était le cas lors du confinement) ? Merci par avance et bon courage pour cette journée chargée en sollicitations !

10h33 : Annoncée par Jean-Michel Blanquer, l’indemnité exceptionnelle de 450 euros pour les directrices et directeurs d’école est publiée au Journal officiel.

10h39 : De premières auditions étaient prévues en septembre dans le cadre de cette information judiciaire ouverte pour “abstention de combattre un sinistre”. L’appréciation rigoureuse des faits par la Cour de justice de la République donne espoir à mes clients de voir condamner les membres du gouvernement qui ont commis des fautes pénales dans la gestion de la crise“, avait commenté sur franceinfo Yassine Bouzrou, avocat du syndicat de police Vigi et des enfants d’un homme mort des suites du Covid-19, dont les plaintes ont été jugées recevables.

10h30 : Des perquisitions ont également eu lieu chez l’ex-Premier ministre Edouard Philippe et l’ex-ministre de la Santé Agnès Buzyn, a appris franceinfo de sources concordantes.

10h26 : Ces perquisitions ont eu lieu ce matin aux domiciles et bureaux du ministre de la Santé Olivier Véran ainsi que chez le directeur général de la Santé Jérôme Salomon. Ce dernier avait annulé sa participation à la matinale de RMC/BFMTV. Ces opérations se sont déroulées “sans difficulté”, a fait savoir le ministère de la santé dans un communiqué.

10h26 : Quelque 90 plaintes avaient été déposées contre des membres du gouvernement, mettant en cause leur prise en charge de l’épidémie en France. Mais seulement neuf plaintes avaient été jugées recevables.

10h11 : #PERQUISITIONS Des perquisitions ont été menées chez Olivier Véran et deux autres responsables dans le cadre de l’enquête sur la gestion critiquée de la crise du coronavirus en France, indique le ministère de la Santé.

09h52 : #ONVOUSREPOND @MM : Sauf si vous êtes un sportif professionnel, il va falloir faire une croix sur votre entraînement nocturne dans les territoires sous couvre-feu. “Aucune dérogation n’est prévue pour le monde amateur”, confirme le ministère des Sports, cité par francetv sport.

Curfew: theaters and cinemas in turmoil


Having to close its doors at 9 p.m., that promises to be complicated for theaters and concert halls. Michel Boujenah, who takes the boards Thursday, October 15 for the first time in the skin of the Miser by Molière, it is the disappointment is great. “If they forbid us to play at 5 o’clock, we will play at 3 o’clock. And if they forbid us to play at 3 p.m., we will play at 6 a.m. We will play anytime but we will play“said the comedian.

The rooms adapt by modifying their programming. Some plays will be performed twice during the day, others earlier in the evening. This is what Richard Berry planned to do, who evokes in front of France Télévisions cameras of “real disasters looming“in the trade.”You have to try as much as possible to reinvent yourself“, adds the actor. At the cinema, where 30% of admissions are booked in the evening after 8 pm, the screenings will be modified. MK2 rooms will, for example, offer screenings from 8 am.

VIDEO. Covid-19: seven sequences to remember from the interview with Olivier Véran in the show “Vous ont la parole”



An update and some details. The day after Emmanuel Macron’s announcements in the face of the coronavirus epidemic, the Minister of Health, Olivier Véran, was the guest of the program “You have the floor” broadcast Thursday, October 15 on France 2.

At the heart of the Orange Vélodrome stadium in Marseille (Bouches-du-Rhône), the Minister was interviewed by journalists Léa Salamé and Thomas Sotto, as well as several elected officials, Marseille residents and personalities. Sometimes very criticized, Olivier Véran defended the latest measures and restrictions taken by the government in the face of the virus.

1Numbers that keep getting worse

Every minute a person walks into the hospital sick with the coronavirus“, declared immediately Olivier Véran. The observation of the health authorities is without appeal according to the Minister of Health, who specified that”every six minutes, day and night, a patient [du coronavirus] goes into intensive care“This Thursday, the health situation deteriorated further in France with more than 30,000 new cases of contamination recorded in 24 hours and 219 new patients placed in intensive care, according to data from Public Health France.

2A crisis management highly criticized by the mayor of Marseille

First accused by a restaurateur from Marseille of having “sowed fear“During his speeches on the Covid-19 epidemic, Olivier Véran was strongly challenged by Michèle Rubirola, mayor (EELV) of Marseille. The elected representative questioned the minister on the merits and effectiveness of the many restrictions imposed by the government in the city over the past two months. “What will be the impact of the curfew on places of contamination such as workplaces, catering, universities? No. “The mayor of Marseille said she was” worried “for businesses and local associations in particular, before criticizing the executive, which she considers too far removed from the realities of her city.

There is not the Paris team against the Marseille team“, defended Olivier Véran, arguing that the measures taken in the city were proportional to the local evolution of the epidemic.”There is only the France team, continued the minister, united France. “The two cities are now both located in the localized curfew zone, which takes effect on Saturday October 17th.

3“If you’re going to see Grandpa and Grandma, keep the mask on”

The Minister of Health defended the government’s choice not to restrict travel to France, while calling for the greatest vigilance. “If you can avoid exposing frail and elderly people, avoid doing so“, repeated Olivier Véran. The day before, Emmanuel Macron had assured that he”would not prevent the French from going on vacation“during All Saints’ Day, a period of family reunification when many children are entrusted to their grandparents.

If you are going to see Grandpa and Grandma, wear the mask, even inside the house, said Olivier Véran, who indicated that the government “does not want to isolate these fragile and elderly people.

Curfew: is your municipality one of the 1,750 concerned? Find out with our search engine



From Saturday October 17 at midnight, eight metropolises and the Ile-de-France region will have to apply a curfew from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Exceptions are provided for those who “come home from work after 9pm, or work at night”, said Emmanuel Macron in his interview on October 14, but it will be necessary to be provided with a certificate.

Failure to comply with the curfew will result in a fine of 135 euros, or even 3,750 euros in the event of a repeat offense. Travel between regions remains authorized, so as not to prevent the French from leaving during the All Saints holidays.

To place these metropolises under curfew, the government has set two criteria: an incidence rate of the virus greater than 250 cases per 100,000 inhabitants and a share of Covid-19 patients in intensive care units of at least 30% , “with a dynamic leading to an overrun of 50% in the coming weeks”, indicates the government.

Paris and the three departments of the inner suburbs have already been placed on maximum alert on October 5, which notably led to the closure of bars.

The 92 municipalities of the Aix-Marseille metropolis

First placed on maximum alert on September 23 (with Guadeloupe), the Aix-Marseille metropolis is also subject to the curfew decreed by the government. Michèle Rubirola, mayor of Marseille, already “angry” by putting his city on maximum alert, criticized “the suppression of pleasures and freedoms” in the program “Vous ont la parole” on France 2, on October 15th.

The 53 municipalities of Saint-Etienne Métropole

Like Lyon, the Saint-Etienne metropolitan area exceeds 45% of intensive care beds occupied by Covid patients. The 53 municipalities were therefore placed in a maximum alert zone on October 10, which led to the closure of bars, before the curfew was declared.

The metropolis of Toulouse has 37 municipalities which will be subject to curfew. They had obtained a three-day reprieve before being placed on maximum alert, on October 13, in the face of the lack of improvement in the health situation.

Prohibiting this area from fishermen could lead to the disappearance of many crews because 30% of French fishing comes from English waters. Finally, the resource, increasingly weak on the French side, would be insufficient to make everyone work, especially as Belgian or Dutch boats, European therefore, would also fall back on French waters, increasing the pressure on the resource.
