On the front page of the French press, reactions to the general policy statement yesterday of Prime Minister Jean Castex.
Before the deputies, Jean Castex presented the broad outlines of the recovery plan to "reweld" France and save jobs, faced with what he described as an "economic and social crisis of a magnitude probably unmatched since the last world war "- a crisis which obliges the government to" amend much more than its method ", according to Les Echos , who see" the priority given to protection and employment crush the reforming will "of Emmanuel Macron 2017 version. “Not very modern, not necessarily reassuring. But the honesty obliges to recognize that behind the words "territories", "proximity", "decentralization", hides part of the response to the current French malaise ", welcomes Liberation , without enthusiasm, but without too much distrust either.Le Figaro , he was totally seduced and saw in Jean Castex "a hussar of the Republic". The newspaper welcomes this Prime Minister "listening to France for common sense" - a term referring to the "pragmatism" which Jean Castex intends to make "his mark". The Médiapart site is much less convinced and critical of “the great leap backwards”, embodied according to him by the new Prime Minister, whose references to separatism, incivility, to this “France of common sense”, precisely, constitute according to him “ a potpourri of the worst of the Sarkozyst right ”. Questioned by Le Parisien / Today in France, the interested party hammers him, that his "absolute priority is the fight against unemployment", that he wants to "restore confidence", "seek consensus", and “dialogue” - “even if at some point, you have to decide”.
On the front page of the Tunisian press, the resignation yesterday of Prime Minister Elyes Fakhfakh. Fragile by a conflict of interest affair, and put under pressure by the Islamist party Ennahda, Elyes Fakhfakh is the second Prime Minister to throw in the towel since the October legislative elections, recalls Assabah , who specifies that President Kaïs Saïed has 10 days to appoint a new head of government. A situation in which Le Temps sees the result of "the bankruptcy of an entire political system", "with a heterogeneous and contested assembly on all sides and a government (unable) to work in harmony" - while "social problems accumulate, with all the risks of conflagration and escalation ”. If Le Temps seems to send back to back all the Tunisian parties, La Presse stresses the responsibility of Ennahda in this crisis - which the party would have nourished by choosing isolation and a break with its allies.
On the side of the British press, there is much talk of the replacement, yesterday, in Bristol, of a statue of slave merchant unbolted last month, by that of a young black woman who had participated in the demonstrations of the BlackLivesMatter movement. This young woman, Jen Reid, makes the front page of the Guardian , in front of the statue which represents her (this statue has been removed since, note) - a very symbolic image to which the mayor of Bristol reacted with caution, evoking "a subject powerful, the representation of a remarkable woman ”, while recalling that Bristol is“ a city with delicate balance, a fractured city ”.
Another very symbolic image is the unreleased front page of the American version of Vanity Fair magazine - the first front page, in 106 years, produced by a black photographer, Dario Calmese, staging the African-American actress Viola Davis. His pose refers to a famous portrait dating from 1863, the photograph of a slave named Gordonan, whose back is striped with the scars left by the lashes.
