Thursday June 30
† Motion of no confidence… at France Télévisions. The information service is bubbling. Laurent Guimier, editor-in-chief of France 2, France 3 and Franceinfo is in turmoil. He only extended a third of the editorial staff’s temporary contracts. Which irritates journalists. Added to this is “disorganization” and a “lack of interest”. The affair of the coverage of Emmanuel Macron’s trip to Kiev by Mohamed Bouhafsi, columnist of C for you and no member of the editorial board, arouses all bitterness. Prelude to a strike?
Friday 1er July
† Strike at TotalEnergies. They are also fed up. The CGT calls for a strike in the refineries of the Total group. Multiple releases are expected. What’s more, the syndicate wants to prevent products from entering or leaving for 24 hours. So block. The employees would like to see the 4.9 billion euros that the company receives as surplus (thank you inflation) trickle down a bit. The ball is in CEO Patrick Pouyanné’s court.
saturday july 2
† World UFO Day.
The Unidentified Flying Objects, in English UFO, at the Geipan, responsible for their study, PAN (Unidentified Aerospace Phenomena) and for mere mortals, flying saucers keep their day – especially in the United States – ordained by the WUFODO (World Organization of UFO day) ). It would be wrong to joke about it. France is one of the few countries to have entrusted the CNRS with the task of collecting all sightings reported by the French gendarmerie. Invariably, every year, the Geipan (Study and Information Group on Unidentified Space Phenomena) inventories and sorts the observations. To date, it has collected 99 D cases (not identified after investigation), or 3.3% of 2,978 registered cases.
sunday july 3
† Anniversary of the founding of the City of Quebec. On July 3, 1608, French explorer Samuel de Champlain founded the capital of the province that would bear his name. The only fortified city in North America, Quebec, so European, still watches over the mouth of the St. Lawrence River.
