Several French cities saw violence on the sidelines of Thursday's largely peaceful protests that attracted more than a million people. King Charles III's state visit to France has been postponed, after a request by President Emmanuel Macron. The Elysée Palace said the decision was taken jointly. The entrance to the town hall in Bordeaux was set alight, but the deputy mayor of the city tells us she supports the sentiments of the protesters. Also in the programme: Why Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's proposed judicial reforms are "illegal" according to the nation's attorney general; and we'll hear from our correspondent on the frontline in Ukraine's Donbas region.

Por un estrechísimo margen de tan sólo nueve votos, el Gobierno francés de Emmanuel Macron sobrevivió este lunes a una moción de censura en la Asamblea Nacional que pretendía sacarle de la presidencia y, ya de paso, tumbar su reforma de las pensiones. Esta reforma, que ha dado lugar a una ola de protestas callejeras en todo el país, se ha saldado con cientos de detenidos e infinidad de destrozos urbanos. El Gobierno aprobó la semana pasada la reforma por decreto a sabiendas de que no iba a salir ilesa del parlamento. Eso ocasionó una moción de censura que ha fracasado, aunque por los pelos. La crisis política parece haber concluido, pero el malestar sigue ahí y podría ir a más casi por casi cualquier causa. Los partidos de oposición necesitaban 287 votos para acabar con el Gobierno de Macron, que está en minoría en la cámara. Esto habría volatilizado la reforma de las pensiones que eleva la edad mínima de jubilación de los 62 a los 64 años. Varios partidos se pusieron de acuerdo para liquidar al Gobierno, pero no les alcanzó por poco. Marine Le Pen y su Agrupación Nacional lo intentaron de nuevo en solitario, pero se quedaron aún más lejos. Esto da a Elisabeth Borne, la primera ministra, un balón de oxígeno que le permite pasar página y superar el escollo de las pensiones que les ha tenido en jaque durante varios meses. Reformar las pensiones era una asignatura pendiente que Macron se trajo del anterior mandato. No podía esperar más si quería sacarla adelante asumiendo un gran coste político. Pero la Asamblea Nacional no estaba por la labor de dar el plácet. Eso obligó a Macron a recurrir a una disposición constitucional, el artículo 49.3, que permite aprobar por decreto ciertas leyes. Sabía que se exponía a una moción de censura, pero no le quedaba otro remedio que pasar por ahí. Hizo dos apuestas y ambas las ha ganado, pero, eso sí, a un coste muy alto. La reforma de las pensiones ha demostrado ser mucho más impopular de lo que se pensaba y así se ha podido ver en la calle desde que fue anunciada a principios de año. Durante dos meses ha estado debatiéndose en el parlamento, un debate muy acalorado que ha venido acompañado de manifestaciones y algunas huelgas muy sonadas como la de los ferroviarios. Según los sondeos, aproximadamente dos de cada tres franceses se oponen a la reforma ya que consideran que la jubilación a los 62 años (o incluso antes) es una conquista social irrenunciable. De nada han valido las explicaciones del Gobierno, que ha fundamentado su reforma en los problemas para financiar el sistema y el rápido envejecimiento de la población. La decisión del Macron de aprobar esto por las malas, es decir, recurriendo al artículo 49.3 de la Constitución ha enfurecido aún más a los franceses, que acusan ahora al presidente de despotismo. Casi el 80% de los consultados en una encuesta de ámbito nacional realizada la semana pasada se oponían a que el presidente tirase de ese resorte constitucional para eludir a la Asamblea. La oposición lo recibió como un regalo sumándose a las manifestaciones en la calle primero y poniendo en marcha una moción en el parlamento después. Durante unos días se temió por la permanencia del propio Macron, a quien acusaban de dictador. Pero, a pesar de todo, ha conseguido salir vivo de esta, sin duda la peor crisis que ha tenido que afrontar en sus seis años de Gobierno.

Now to the news… First in world news… https://www.foxnews.com/world/vladimir-putin-xi-jinping-sign-economic-deal-latest-demonstration-friendship-limits Vladimir Putin, Xi Jinping sign economic deal in latest demonstration of 'friendship without limits' Chinese President Xi Jinping and Russian President Vladimir Putin signed an agreement to expand their economic ties during a bilateral meeting in Moscow on Tuesday. Xi is in Moscow for a multiday series of meetings with his Russian counterpart, aimed at demonstrating the two countries' new "friendship without limits." Xi and Putin emphasized the importance of jointly safeguarding their countries' energy security. Putin touted plans for a gas pipeline from Siberia to China ahead of the meeting, saying the agreement was all-but finalized. "We were just discussing a good project, the new Power of Siberia 2 pipeline via Mongolia. Practically all the parameters of that agreement have been finalized," Putin told Xi at the beginning of the meeting, according to the Financial Times. Beijing has grown increasingly friendly with Moscow over the past year as Putin's invasion of Ukraine left the country largely ostracized on the world stage. Xi's visit comes just days after the International Criminal Court issued a warrant for Putin's arrest for war crimes committed in Ukraine. Nevertheless, the pair called each other "dear friend" when they first shook hands on Monday. Putin alleged during Monday's meeting that the Western world is conspiring to stifle Russia and China by "persistently working to split the common Eurasian space into a network of ‘exclusive clubs’ and military blocs that would serve to contain our countries’ development." The exact details of Russia and China's Tuesday economic agreement have yet to be released. Over to Paris… https://nationalpost.com/pmn/news-pmn/crime-pmn/macrons-government-faces-moment-of-truth-over-pension-reform Protesters set rubbish on fire as French govt barely survives no-confidence vote Protesters set piles of rubbish on fire in central Paris on Monday after President Emmanuel Macron’s government narrowly survived a no-confidence motion in parliament on Monday over a deeply unpopular pension reform. The failure of the no-confidence vote will be a relief to Macron. Had it succeeded, it would have sunk his government and killed the legislation, which is set to raise the retirement age by two years to 64. But the relief proved short-lived. In some of Paris’ most prestigious avenues, firefighters scrambled to put out burning rubbish piles left uncollected for days due to strikes as protesters played cat-and-mouse with police. Earlier on Thursday, a Reuters reporter saw police fire tear gas and briefly charge at protesters after the no-confidence vote barely fell short of enough votes to pass. Unions and opposition parties said they would step up protests to try and force a u-turn. The vote on the tripartisan, no-confidence motion was closer than expected. Some 278 MPs backed it, just nine short of the 287 needed for it to succeed. As soon as the failure of the no-confidence vote was announced, lawmakers from the hard left (LFI, France Unbowed) shouted “Resign!” at Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne and brandished placards that read: “We’ll meet in the streets.” In the southwestern city of Bordeaux, about 200-300 people, mostly youngsters, gathered against the reform and chanted: “Macron, resign!” A couple of trash bins were lit on fire as the crowd chanted: “This will blow up.” Over the past three nights, clashes over the pension reform, in Paris and throughout the country, have been reminiscent of the Yellow Vest protests that erupted in late 2018 over high fuel prices. A ninth nationwide day of strikes and protests is scheduled on Thursday. “Nothing undermines the mobilization of workers,” the hardline CGT union said after the vote, calling on workers to step up industrial action and “participate massively in rolling strikes and demonstrations.” Opposition parties will also challenge the bill in the Constitutional Council, which could decide to strike down some or all of it – if it considers it breaches the constitution. A second motion of no confidence, tabled by the far-right National Rally (RN), also failed, after it gathered only 94 votes. Other opposition parties said they would not vote for it. Far-right leader Marine Le Pen said Borne should go. She said Macron should call a referendum on the reform but was unlikely to do so. “He’s deaf to what the French people want,” she told reporters. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2023/03/20/this-is-insane-mexican-government-seizes-assets-of-american-company-n2620887 'This Is Insane': Mexican Military Just Seized Assets of an American Company Over the weekend, the Mexican military seized a number of assets belonging to American company Vulcan Materials. "The seizure of a US company's marine terminal in Mexico has drawn criticism from a US senator and risks sparking more tension between the two nations amid spats over energy and security," Bloomberg reports. "US construction firm Vulcan Materials alleges that armed forces, including from the Mexican government, launched a takeover of its facility in the country's southeast on Tuesday. The company says a federal judge in Mexico has ordered a stay on any government effort to confiscate the property." The move prompted national security experts to sound the alarm, calling the situation "insane." Former Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe is also weighing in, noting President Joe Biden's continued weakness on the world stage. Last week, Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador lashed out after Republicans called for additional tools to use military force against Mexican cartels. https://www.cnbc.com/2023/03/21/february-home-sales-spike.html Home sales spike 14.5% in February as the median price drops for the first time in over a decade Sales of previously owned homes rose 14.5% in February compared with January, according to a seasonally adjusted count by the National Association of Realtors. That put sales at an annualized rate of 4.58 million units. It was the first monthly gain in 12 months and the largest increase since July 2020, just after the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Sales were, however, 22.6% lower than they were in February of last year. These sales counts are based on closings, so the contracts were likely signed at the end of December and throughout January, when mortgage rates had fallen sharply. The average rate on the popular 30-year fixed loan hovered in the low 6% range throughout January after reaching a high of 7% last fall. The relative drop caused a jump in sales of newly built homes, before rates jumped back toward 7% in February. They now stand at 6.67%, according to Mortgage News Daily. “Conscious of changing mortgage rates, home buyers are taking advantage of any rate declines,” said Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the Realtors, in a release. “Moreover, we’re seeing stronger sales gains in areas where home prices are decreasing and the local economies are adding jobs.” Higher mortgage rates have been cooling home prices since last summer, and for the first time in a record 131 consecutive months — nearly 11 years — prices were lower on a year-over-year comparison. The median price of an existing home sold in February was $363,000, a 0.2% decline from February 2022. That lower median price could be a sign that homes on the more affordable end of the market are selling. Sales might have been even higher were it not for what is still very low supply. There were just 980,000 homes for sale at the end of February, according to the Realtors, flat compared with January. At the current sales pace, that represents a 2.6-month supply. A balanced market between buyer and seller is considered a 4- to 6-month supply. “Inventory levels are still at historic lows,” Yun added. “Consequently, multiple offers are returning on a good number of properties.” This could start to heat prices again, but with mortgage rates now higher than they were in January it will be harder for some buyers to compete. All-cash sales accounted for 28% of transactions in February, down from 29% in January but up from 25% in February 2022. Individual investors returned, making up 18% of buyers, up from 16% in January but down from 19% in February 2022. When looking at sales at different price points, they were all down in the range of 20% from February last year, with sales down the most in the top, million-dollar-plus segment. https://www.cnn.com/2023/03/21/politics/idaho-firing-squad-bill/index.html Idaho lawmakers approve bill that would allow execution by firing squad Idaho lawmakers approved a bill Monday that would allow execution by firing squad, according to the legislature’s website. State Rep. Bruce D. Skaug confirmed the move in a statement to CNN. “H186 has now passed the Idaho Senate and House with a veto proof majority,” Skaug wrote in an email to CNN. “Upon signature of the Governor, the state may now more likely carry out justice, as determined by our judicial system, against those who have committed first degree murder.” A total of 24 officials voted for the bill, while 11 voted against it. House Bill 186 will move to Republican Gov. Brad Little’s desk next. The bill stipulates that firing squads will be used only if the state cannot obtain the drugs needed for lethal injections. Several states have struggled to source the drugs required for lethal injection, causing them to pause executions and triggering lawsuits from inmates who argue the injections are inhumane. Additionally, the bill permits Idaho to use firing squads if lethal injections are deemed unconstitutional by a court. A fiscal note tied to the bill explains that refurbishing the Department of Correction to meet “safety and execution requirements for the firing squad” will cost around $750,000. If the bill is signed into law, Idaho will follow South Carolina, which approved the usage of firing squads in March 2022. Three other states permit firing squads, according to the Death Penalty Information Center: Mississippi, Utah and Oklahoma. A firing squad was last used in the US in 2010 to execute convicted murderer Ronnie Lee Gardner in Utah.

Fast wäre die französische Regierung gestürzt worden: Nur neun Stimmen fehlten bei den zwei Misstrauensanträgen, die die Opposition am Montagabend gegen Emmanuel Macron und seine Regierung gestellt hatte. Noch immer ist die Rentenreform, die Macron und seine Premierministerin ohne Abstimmung durch das Parlament gebracht haben, höchst umstritten. Auch wenn sie jetzt formell beschlossen ist, hat sie Macron enorm geschadet. Seine künftigen Optionen im Parlament sind viel kleiner geworden. Das erklärt Matthias Krupa, Korrespondent der ZEIT in Frankreich. Der chinesische Präsident Xi Jinping, der gerade in Moskau zu Besuch ist, hat Wladimir Putin zum Gegenbesuch nach China eingeladen. Die Ukraine erhält unterdessen mehr Munition. Die Londoner Polizei ist institutionell rassistisch, frauenfeindlich und homophob. Das zeigt ein unabhängiger Untersuchungsbericht, der von der britischen Oberhausabgeordneten Louise Casey verfasst wurde. Casey fordert eine "völlige Überholung" der Behörde – ansonsten drohe ihr die Auflösung. Was noch? Gleich drei Athleten haben den berüchtigten Barkley Marathon geschafft.

Highlights:  ●      “Furious riots are sweeping the nation of France after French President Emmanuel Macron announced that he was going to bypass parliament and impose by fiat his own pension reforms on the French people.” ●      Macron's proposal is very unpopular and was doomed to defeat by the French Parliament, and that's when he in effect turned the proposal into a dictate. He invoked what's called Article 49 of the French Constitution, which allows the president to unilaterally pass any law without a vote.” ●      “The great self-proclaimed defenders of Democracy, the Bullies in Brussels, are absolutely silent over this. And of course, they are because we all know nothing that the collective western powers, nothing that the dolts in DC or the Bullies in Brussels or the Demons in Davos, NOTHING that they do has anything to do with democracy.” ●      “There's already a no-confidence vote scheduled for later today in the National Assembly; it's more a symbolic vote, Macron will probably weather that vote, barely, but even if he didn't it, it doesn't have a direct effect on him. What this does do is it politically paralyzes Macron, even worse than he already is.”   Timestamps:  [01:09] Why riots are sweeping the nation of France [03:29] How no one at the EU is calling out Macron for his blatantly authoritarian, anti-democratic tactics [06:34] Why the Macron government is on the verge of collapse Resources:  ●      Learn how to protect your life savings from inflation and an irresponsible government, with Gold and Silver.

This week, Eric, Dan, and Dylan discuss the protests in France over the move by French president Emmanuel Macron to raise the retirement age from 62 to 64. How does France, and other countries facing the realities of math when it comes to their pension programs, navigate the reality that these kinds of reforms are simultaneously necessary and very unpopular? Next, the guys consider the alleged difficulty people are having defining “wokeness” in the wake of author Bethany Mandel's going blank when asked to define the term on The Hill's morning show, “Rising.” Is this just a rhetorical game? And finally, in the wake of the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, the usual suspects have been calling for new financial regulations to address the allegedly risky behavior of SBV.

LA DÉFENSE FRANÇAISE, AVEC LOUIS GAUTIERL'invasion de l'Ukraine par la Russie a rebattu les cartes stratégiques de l'Europe, pointe l'Institut international pour les études stratégiques dans son rapport annuel qui observe que le « centre de gravité stratégique s'est déplacé vers l'est et le nord ». « Pour une décennie au moins, la Russie sera le souci numéro un » des Européens, souligne l'institut, qui ajoute qu'une vingtaine de pays se sont d'ores et déjà engagés à augmenter leurs dépenses de défense.Tirant les premières leçons du conflit en Ukraine, la nouvelle Revue nationale stratégique a été présentée en novembre par le Président Emmanuel Macron. Désormais, la lutte anti-terroriste n'est plus la priorité numéro un, mais c'est le durcissement des armées en vue d'une possible participation à un conflit majeur qui dictera la prochaine loi de programmation militaire (LPM) 2024-2030 qui doit être votée à l'été. Dans ce cadre, la France prévoit de consacrer 413 milliards d'euros à ses armées d'ici à 2030, soit un effort annuel moyen de 59 milliards, contre 39,5 milliards pour la LPM en cours, adoptée en 2017.Engagées dans des combats expéditionnaires depuis la première guerre du Golfe, en 1991, les armées occidentales avaient perdu l'habitude du conflit interétatique de haute intensité. L'armée de la guerre froide n'est pas celle des opérations extérieures (OPEX). Aussi, en Afrique, la France veut changer de modèle pour n'agir qu'à la demande des autorités africaines et seulement en appui de leurs armées. Il s'agit de basculer les forces françaises vers l'est, avec la volonté d'inscrire la France comme un partenaire de premier plan de l'OTAN et de l'Europe.Depuis des décennies, l'industrie de défense européenne est dimensionnée pour produire le minimum nécessaire en temps de paix. Ainsi, à la veille d'une réunion des ministres de la défense de l'OTAN, les 14 et 15 février, le secrétaire général de l'Alliance atlantique, Jens Stoltenberg, a déclaré que l'Europe est à court de munitions. L'armée ukrainienne tire 5 à 6.000 obus d'artillerie par jour, les forces russes quatre fois plus. Aussi, dès juin dernier, le président Emmanuel Macron a réclamé aux industriels de la défense de passer en mode « économie de guerre ». Mais celle-ci tarde à prendre corps, indique un rapport sur les enseignements de la guerre en Ukraine, adopté le 8 février par la commission des affaires étrangères, de la défense et des forces armées du Sénat.Avec notre invité Louis Gautier, haut fonctionnaire, magistrat à la Cour des comptes, ancien Secrétaire général de la Défense et de la Sécurité nationale de 2014 à 2018, professeur associé à l'Université Panthéon-Sorbonne (Paris I) en 2012, où il a créé, l'année suivante, la Chaire « Grands enjeux stratégiques contemporains », nous allons explorer le contexte dans lequel s'inscrit la défense française.Vous pouvez consulter notre politique de confidentialité sur https://art19.com/privacy ainsi que la notice de confidentialité de la Californie sur https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Retour sur la COP 15 Biodiversité qui s'est tenue au Canada en décembre dernier. 190 pays devaient s'entendre pour mettre un terme à la destruction en cours du vivant. On parle de dernière chance, le Secrétaire Général des Nations Unies, adepte des punchlines, a ouvert cette COP avec cette phrase forte : « l'humanité est devenue une arme de destruction massive ». Allain Bougrain Dubourg, président de la Ligue de Protection des Oiseaux et défenseur de la biodiversité depuis des décennies, est notre invité sur Impact Positif. Agir et vite ! Mettre la biodiversité sur le même pied que le climat, notamment en créant un fonds comme pour la COP27 en Egypte. Il y a urgence : un million d'espèces sont menacées, un tiers des terres sont dégradées. On sait aussi que les sols fertiles sont en train de disparaître, et les océans se dégradent également sous l'effet des pollutions et du changement climatique. Face à ces constats, il y a encore de l'espoir si on s'en donne les moyens. L'objectif de cette COP sera de protéger 30% des terres et des mers. Et c'est à l'aune de cet objectif que l'on déterminera le succès de cette COP. Allain Bougrain Dubourg demande également à Emmanuel Macron de montrer la voie et d'agir alors que toutes les solutions sont sur la table. Mais il y aussi ce que l'on peut faire à son échelle. Depuis les confinements, il y a eu un engouement formidable pour la nature à côté de chez soi. C'est ce que promeut la LPO avec ses différents programmes à destination des citoyens. « Les gens, de leur fenêtre et de leur jardin, ont commencé à écouter le silence et le chant des oiseaux » nous explique Allain Bougrain Dubourg. Alors que 30% des oiseaux en zone urbaine ont disparu, que certaines espèces sont menacées comme l'alouette, un conseil alors que les températures sont très froides : donner à manger aux oiseaux. Mais attention, pas de pain sur les balcons, pas de salé non plus, privilégiez les graines ou encore les boules de graisse.

N°288 / 12 mars 2023Connaissez-vous notre site ? www.lenouvelespritpublic.frUne émission de Philippe Meyer, enregistrée au studio l'Arrière-boutique le 10 mars 2023.Avec cette semaine :Akram Belkaïd, journaliste au Monde diplomatique.François Bujon de l'Estang, ambassadeur de France.Béatrice Giblin, directrice de la revue Hérodote et fondatrice de l'Institut Français de Géopolitique.Nicole Gnesotto, vice-présidente de l'Institut Jacques Delors.APRÈS LA GRÈVE1,28 million de personnes ont défilé, le 7 mars, selon le ministère de l'intérieur, un record dans les décomptes officiels pour des manifestations ayant une dimension sociale, tandis que la CGT a avancé le chiffre de 3,5 millions. Jamais depuis trente ans les syndicats de salariés n'ont été aussi unis pour combattre un projet de loi du gouvernement. « Les organisations ont redoré leur image en ayant su capter la colère des Français, analyse Frédéric Dabi de l'lfop. Ils échappent à la défiance touchant les partis politiques qui ont offert un piètre spectacle à l'Assemblée nationale lors des débats sur le projet de loi des retraites. » Ayant le vent en poupe toutes les centrales ont enregistré, depuis janvier, une hausse importante des adhésions. La CFDT a ainsi délivré 13.000 nouvelles cartes, une augmentation de 40 % par rapport à l'an dernier, sur la même période, tandis qu'à la CGT en a enregistré 12.500.Si l'opposition à la réforme des retraites reste stable et dominante (à 72%), elle est devenue également majoritaire chez les sympathisants LR (53% approuvent la mobilisation, +4 points en un mois) et même au cœur de l'électorat macroniste, celui des 55-64 ans. A cette désaffection dans les rangs des siens, le président devra ajouter un ressentiment contre sa personne que les sondages enregistrent sans désemparer. Avec lui, le gouvernement est confronté à une rare unité syndicale et à des centrales qui ont réussi à ne pas se mettre à dos l'opinion publique avec des actions coup de poing tout en espérant mettre suffisamment la pression sur le gouvernement pour l'amener à bouger. Dans les cortèges, les débordements des blackblocks ont été contenus...Dans les jours et les semaines qui viennent, l'intersyndicale veut durcir le mouvement contre le projet de réforme, sans perdre le soutien des Français. A l'issue de leur sixième journée nationale d'action contre la réforme des retraites, les syndicats ont demandé à être reçus « en urgence » par Emmanuel Macron, afin qu'il « retire » son projet, actuellement débattu au Sénat. Réponse de l'Élysée : « la porte de l'exécutif est toujours restée ouverte » mais, à Rungis, le 21 février, puis, quatre jours après, au Salon de l'agriculture, le Président de la République a indiqué qu'il ne cédera pas s'agissant du report à 64 ans de l'âge légal de départ à la retraite voté par le Sénat le 9 mars. D'après l'Ifop, seulement 34 % des Français pensent que sous l'effet du mouvement social la réforme sera retirée. « Il y a une mémoire de l'opinion publique qui a intégré que le gouvernement ne recule plus face à la rue », rappelle Frédéric Dabi. Au-delà des retraites, sociologues et philosophes relèvent que le problème de fond est moins le projet de réforme que l'évolution du rapport au travail lui-même et la quête de sens qui l'accompagne, comme en témoigne notamment les pénuries de main-d'œuvre qui sévissent actuellement dans le privé comme dans les administrations.DEUXIÈME SUJET LA POLITIQUE FRANÇAISE AU MAGHREB ET LA SITUATION EN TUNISIEDans un Maghreb gangrené par les crises internes (effondrement économique de la Tunisie, déchirement de la Libye...), un conflit régional (l'Algérie et le Maroc ont rompu leurs relations diplomatiques en 2021) et des tentations étrangères (de la Russie et de la Chine), une des terres de prédilection de la France s'est transformée en zone de crispations pour Paris. Entre un pari algérien tourmenté et la préservation d'une relation avec le Maroc jadis privilégiée, mais aujourd'hui rétrogradée, l'approche présidentielle du Maghreb suit une ligne de crête assumée entre les deux frères ennemis du Maghreb, dont l'antagonisme s'est exacerbé depuis deux ans avec le retour du contentieux autour du Sahara occidental. Un jeu d'équilibre qui place la diplomatie française sous tension.Depuis deux ans, avec le Maroc, les crispations sont allées crescendo : refus français de qualifier de « base sérieuse et crédible » à une future solution politique le plan d'autonomie marocain de 2007 pour le Sahara occidental ; affaire du logiciel espion Pegasus ; Qatargate devenu au Parlement européen Marocgate ; soupçons de complaisance avec le Maroc pesant sur un présentateur de BFMTV et enfin, condamnation des violations des droits de l'homme au Maroc par le Parlement européen le 19 janvier. Les responsables politiques et les médias marocains s'insurgent contre ce vote. L'ambassadeur marocain à Paris a été rappelé par Rabat.Avec Alger, depuis plusieurs années, Emmanuel Macron s'est montré déterminé à réchauffer les relations. Plusieurs rapprochements ont été ébauchés dans le contexte de la crise sécuritaire du Sahel ou bien de la crise énergétique provoquée par la guerre d'Ukraine tout en entretenant des relations empreintes de méfiance. Des liens qui demeurent fragile, comme le montre l'affaire de la militante franco-algérienne Amira Bouraoui, rapatriée récemment en France alors qu'elle était en situation irrégulière en Tunisie.

Europe correspondent Seamus Kearney joins Kathryn to look at the first face-to-face summit between the French and British leaders in five years, as Rishi Sunak and Emmanuel Macron put the spotlight on migration. London has agreed to up the amount it pays Paris to patrol Normandy beaches to prevent migrants from setting off across the English Channel in small boats, but President Macron refused to address the UK's demand that asylum seekers arriving in the UK be sent back to France. Meanwhile $100 billion may be needed to repair the damage from the devastating earthquakes in Syria and Turkey five weeks ago, with a major donor drive now underway.

Others criticised it for being inhumane. We discuss the language and strategy of the policy and ask, is it workable?

EXPERTS CHRISTOPHE BARBIER Éditorialiste politique Conseiller de la rédaction – « Franc-Tireur » NATHALIE MAURET Journaliste politique - Groupe de presse régionale « Ebra » ANNE-CHARLÈNE BEZZINA Constitutionnaliste - Enseignante en Droit public BERNARD SANANÈS Politologue – Président de l'Institut de sondage Elabe Quatre jours après une mobilisation record contre la réforme des retraites, l'intersyndicale appelle à une septième journée d'action ce samedi. Plus de 230 rassemblements sont prévus dans toute la France. Entre 800 000 et un million de personnes sont attendues selon les renseignements. Les syndicats avaient promis de mettre la France à l'arrêt. S'ils n'y sont pour l'heure pas parvenus par la grève, ils ne désarment pas. En parallèle des manifestations, les opérations coups de poing se multiplient en effet, entre coupures de courant ciblées, blocage de voies ferroviaires et de dépôts de carburants. Des agents du secteur du gaz et de l'électricité ont coupé ce jeudi le courant du Stade de France et du chantier du village olympique à Saint-Denis, a annoncé le syndicat CGT. Plus tard dans l'après-midi, le distributeur Enedis a toutefois démenti une partie de la coupure : « La ligne électrique qui alimente le stade de France n'a pas été coupée », a indiqué une porte-parole, qui confirme en revanche « des coupures » dans la zone commerciale et résidentielle autour du stade, ainsi que sur le chantier du futur village olympique. Les expéditions de carburants étaient elles toujours bloquées jeudi matin à la sortie de plusieurs raffineries françaises. La jeunesse est, elle aussi, mobilisée. Une journée de mobilisation et d'action a lieu ce jeudi. Plusieurs lycées et universités ont été bloqués. Jeudi toujours, les huit principaux syndicats et cinq organisations de jeunesse ont adressé un courrier au chef de l'État, à qui elles reprochent de rester sourd face à la mobilisation contre ce texte. Les syndicats demandent, depuis la mobilisation massive de mardi, à être reçus à l'Élysée par Emmanuel Macron, estimant que son silence "constitue un grave problème démocratique" et pourrait conduire "immanquablement à une situation qui pourrait devenir explosive". Le président leur a répondu "être à l'écoute" tout en défendant la "nécessité" de la réforme. Il ne le recevra pas. "Les salariés vont recevoir aujourd'hui la réponse du président de la République comme un vrai mépris", déclare Yvan Ricordeau, secrétaire national de la CFDT, chargé des retraites. Le président a argué vouloir respecter le temps du débat parlementaire. À l'Assemblée, justement, la semaine n'a pas été de tout repos, au contraire. La réforme des retraites crée des zones de turbulences chez les députés et sénateurs Les Républicains. À l'approche du vote sur la réforme des retraites, le groupe LR, allié de circonstance indispensable du gouvernement pour l'obtention d'une majorité sur le texte, est divisé entre frondeurs et pro-réforme. Trois mois après l'élection d'Éric Ciotti à sa tête, le parti peine en effet toujours à parler d'une seule voix. Autour de la réforme, les contestations internes se sont aiguisées, notamment lorsque Aurélien Pradié, candidat malheureux à la présidence de LR, a lancé le combat sur les carrières longues. Le député du Lot a affiché une intransigeance qui a exaspéré en interne, aboutissant à son éviction du poste de numéro 2. Mais il n'est pas certain que cet « acte d'autorité » d'Éric Ciotti ait suffit à calmer le jeu. Aurélien Pradié maintient la pression, alors qu'un vote crucial se profile jeudi à l'Assemblée. Pour Pierre Cordier, député apparenté LR, le pronostic est sans appel : "Élisabeth Borne n'aura pas de majorité à l'Assemblée nationale." À l'extrême droite de l'échiquier politique, pendant les quinze jours qu'ont duré les débats à l'Assemblée nationale, Marine Le Pen s'est soigneusement abstenue de livrer sa position sur le sujet et donc de prendre le moindre risque. Ses rares initiatives ont relevé de la seule tactique. Ainsi la motion de censure déposée in extremis, dans la dernière ligne droite, et rejetée par les députés. S'il y a une personnalité et un parti dont on ignore donc tout ou en matière de retraites, c'est bien Marine Le Pen et le RN. Un député de la majorité les a même accusé en séance dans l'hémicycle d'être les "passagers clandestins" de ce texte. Pourtant, au regard du débat hystérique auquel se sont livrés les députés, l'extrême réserve du RN semble lui avoir profité. Dans la continuité de la "stratégie de la cravate" du début de mandature, les élus d'extrême droite jouent le rôle des bons élèves. Le mouvement social peut-il faire plier le gouvernement ? Le parti les Républicains va-t-il vers une scission sur le texte de la réforme des retraites ? Jusqu'où sa stratégie de normalisation peut-elle conduire le RN ?

Esta semana se celebró el Día Internacional de la Mujer. También ha sido el quinto aniversario del 8-M de 2018, aquel que paralizó el país con una huelga feminista masiva. Este año, los ánimos estaban más bajos por la división del movimiento en algunos territorios y por la disputa política que rodea a la ministra de Igualdad, Irene Montero, y al socio mayoritario del Gobierno, el PSOE, a cuenta de la reforma de ley del solo sí es sí. Finalmente, la reivindicación no perdió pulso en la calle. En Francia también han sido días de movilizaciones, más allá del 8-M. Desde hace semanas, los ciudadanos franceses están revolviéndose ante la reforma de las pensiones que pretende llevar a cabo Emmanuel Macron, que subiría la edad de jubilación de los 62 a los 64 años. Y el retiro de los españoles ha sido otro de los temas que han marcado la actualidad en España. El ministro de Seguridad Social, José Luis Escrivá ha informado de que, tras meses de bloqueo, el Gobierno ha llegado a un acuerdo con Bruselas para reformar el sistema.
