French women to walk out of work in protest against gender pay gap
Les Glorieuses, a weekly feminist newsletter in France, has called on women across the country to walk out of their jobs at precisely 4:34pm on November 7 to protest against income inequality in the workplace.
Women in France earn around 15.1 percent less than men, according to the latest datafrom the European Union’s statistics agency Eurostat, which Les Glorieuses has calculated to mean women will be essentially working for free for the rest of the year after 4:34pm on November 7.
“As of 4:34pm [and 7 seconds] on November 7, women will be working ‘voluntarily’,” the organisation said in a statement on its website. “We call on women, men, unions and feminist organisations to join the movement… and to hold events and protests in order to make income inequality a central political problem. By tackling this subject, we’re showing that the gender pay gap is not just a ‘woman’s issue’.”
The demonstration, which has been dubbed#7NOVEMBRE16H34, was inspired by a similar initiative in Iceland last month, during which thousands of women protested against the country’s 14 percent gender pay gap ending the workday 14 percent early at 2:38pm.
Just two days after the walk-out in Iceland, the World Economic Forum (WEF) published a report that found if the global economic gender gap continues to shrink at its present rate, it could take up to 170 years before it closes.
But Les Glorieuses said it’s not willing to wait that long for equal pay, and has called on women across France to take a stand. At the time of publication, 1,800 people had committed on Facebook to participating in #7NOVEMBRE16H34, while an online petition garnered nearly 1,400 signatures.
“Our goal is to take the petition to Laurence Rossignol [French minister of families, children and women’s rights] by Monday at the latest to demand equal pay,” Alix Heuer, co-founder of Les Glorieuses alongside Rebecca Amsellem, told FRANCE 24.
Several women’s rights groups have also committed to holding events in support of the protest. The organisation Féministes Plurielles has called on volunteers in the western city of Nantes to help put up posters on Friday promoting the walk-out, while the group Régards de Femmes has scheduled a rally in the southwestern city of Lyon for November 7.
A demonstration is also expected to be held at the symbolic Place de la République in Paris the same day, according to Heuer.
France has a mixed history when it comes to gender equality. Although there were women in government as early as 1936, they weren’t officially granted the right to vote until 1944 – many years after the majority of European countries.
Since then, women’s rights have advanced by leaps and bounds. France currently ranks among the top 20 countries in gender equality, according to the WEF. Yet even so, the pay gap remains a major issue.
“We make up around 52 percent of the overall population,” Les Glorieuses said on its website. “We don’t want to wait until 2186 for equal salaries. We don’t want to wait 170 years for this parity.”

After Calais, does a similar fate await Paris’s mini ‘Jungle’?
The homeless migrant population in Paris increased sharply last week, but FRANCE 24 found that the influx cannot be blamed on last week’s evacuation of the Calais “Jungle” migrant camp in northern France.
Last week French president François Hollande praised the evacuation of the notorious Calais camp, saying that 5,000 migrants had been shifted to 450 reception centres throughout France. Hollande said France would “no longer tolerate” migrant camps, calling them “unbecoming of what a French welcome should be”.
Makeshift camps of 1,000 to 2,000 migrants have existed on the streets of Paris since last year, but over the weekend Paris officials reported that their population had increased by roughly one third since the Calais evacuation.
In a letter that was made public on Monday, Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo made a request to Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve to close the camps rapidly on humanitarian grounds.
Several French media outlets quickly drew a connection between the evacuation of the “Jungle” and the influx of migrants in Paris, a two-hour train ride from Calais.
“After Calais, migrant camps swell”, ran a headline in French daily Le Figaro on October 28. “Demolition of Calais: migrants retreat to Paris” was the title of similar piece by BFMTV on October 27.
“Between 500 and 1,000 people have arrived in Paris, and the majority come from Calais,” Julian, from the migrants-rights group Bureau d’Accueil et d’Accompagnement des Migrants (Migrant Reception and Support Committee) told Europe 1 on October 28.
But among more than 25 migrants interviewed on Monday at the major camps in Paris, only one had arrived from Calais during the evacuation. The rest had been in Paris for several weeks or months, or had recently arrived from Italy. Most have begun the long, complicated process of applying for asylum in France. They often speak English but little French. Several said they were tired of talking to journalists.
‘We always see the same faces’
The majority of homeless migrants in Paris are camped in the north of the city at the border of the 10th, 18th and 19th arrondissements (districts), where the intersection of a major boulevard, an elevated metro line and a canal create several large spaces of sheltered pavement. The population is split into roughly four distinct camps.
At 9am on Monday under the elevated train line near Jaurès Metro, riot police blocked a group of about 30 migrants from reaching their camping spots, while a digger cleared away tents and a clean-up crew unblocked the overflowing public urinals.
About a dozen activists stood alongside the migrants, holding signs protesting the round-up. Houssam, from the migrant-rights group Chapelle Debout, questioned the French government’s purported humanitarian goals.
“These round-ups have three objectives,” Houssam told FRANCE 24. “To rush the asylum process, to discourage migrants from requesting asylum and to criminalise the migrant population.”
At least a dozen journalists had come to cover the police action and to try to find migrants who had recently come from Calais.
But Yann from SciencesPo Refugee Help, a student activist group, said that the population of the Paris camps was constantly going up and down.
“There are no more spaces in the housing centres for asylum seekers, so people stay on the street,” Yann told FRANCE 24. “There are a few people from Calais, but we always see the same faces.”
On the other side of the overpass, about 100 migrants were lined up with their tents, mattresses and bags, waiting for the round-up to pass.
Round-ups and evacuations of the Paris migrant camps occur on an almost-weekly basis. One woman, who did not give her name, explained that she had already seen three since she arrived in Paris in September. Like most people near the Jaurès Metro, she is from Afghanistan. She was in France with seven family members, all of whom had requested asylum. She said they planned to sleep in the same spot Monday night, despite the round-up.
The Calais connection
About 200 metres away, under the section of the elevated trainline near Stalingrad Metro, the camp of mostly Sudanese families had not been touched by the round-up. Omaima, a Sudanese mother living in a tent with her son and daughter, said she had arrived in Paris from Italy one week ago.
She took out a paper showing an appointment with Coordination de l’Accueil des Familles Demandeuses d’Asile (Coordination for the Reception of Families Requesting Asylum), one of the non-profit organisations charged by the French government with receiving asylum requests.
Omaima’s neighbour, also Sudanese, said she did come from Calais, but had come to Paris two months ago. Calais was too cold and unsanitary for her and her son, she said.
Activists and officials say many migrants like her have been travelling back and forth between Paris and Calais for months, long before any announcement that the “Jungle” would be dismantled.
Libya, Italy, Paris
The camp of mostly single Sudanese men that stretches along Paris’s Avenue Flandre has seen the most growth in the past week, said Sylvie and Christophe, two neighbourhood residents who come to the camp on a regular basis to offer their help.
“Before the tents stopped at the traffic light [at Rue du Maroc],” Sylvie told FRANCE 24. “Now they go up to Passage de Flandre,” covering an additional 200 metres of pavement.
“I’m angry,” Sylvie continued. “We have to save them, you know?”
She doesn’t think the government is doing enough. She sees neighbourhood residents and citizen organisations come to the camps more often than the large organisations that receive government funding, like Médécins du Monde, Emmaüs or France Terre d’Asile.
She and Christophe agreed that the recent influx of people on Avenue Flandre did not come from Calais.
Most seemed to be like Youssif, a Sudanese man who was sitting with two friends on a bench in front of the state health insurance office on Avenue Flandre, eating apples they received from volunteers. They had all followed the same route: Sudan, Libya, Italy, Paris.
Youssif held up a small slip of green paper. It gives him an appointment at France Terre d’Asile, one of the associations charged with processing asylum requests. The date of the appointment is November 18, which means another 18 days on the street.
Ahmed-Mohammed was the only person interviewed for this article who said he had come from Calais after the demolition. He stopped to talk after squeezing past activists, journalists and migrants. Ahmed-Mohammed said he arrived in Paris on Sunday. He has been trying to get to England for six months and he will keep trying.
A few metres away, cameras from French TV station TF1 rolled as a correspondent in a Barbour jacket walked between the rows of tents with Abdel, a Sudanese migrant who speaks fluent French. Abdel, like many migrants in the camp, seemed both used to talking to journalists and a little bemused by the sudden surge of attention. After a few takes, the cameras stopped.
“I thought there were supposed to be people from Calais here,” the TV correspondent said.
“No,” Abdel said. “All the new people are from Italy.”
Democrat fury as FBI release Bill Clinton archive days before election
Only days before the election, the FBI released an archive of documents from a long-closed investigation into Bill Clinton’s 2001 presidential pardon of a fugitive financier, prompting questions from Hillary Clinton’s campaign about its timing.
The 129 pages of heavily censored material about Bill Clinton’s presidential pardon of Marc Rich were published Monday on the FBI’s Freedom of Information Act webpage and noted by one of the bureau’s Twitter accounts Tuesday. Earlier in October, the FBI unit published historical files as far back as 1966 about Donald Trump‘s father, Fred Trump.
The Clinton campaign questioned the bureau’s decision to make the file public so close to Tuesday’s election.
“Absent a (Freedom of Information Act) deadline, this is odd,” Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted. “Will FBI be posting docs on Trumps’ housing discrimination in ’70s?” Fallon’s reference was to news accounts of a 1973 federal housing discrimination lawsuit, later settled, against Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
In response to questions Tuesday from The Associated Press, the FBI said that the Marc Rich documents “became available for release and were posted automatically and electronically to the FBI’s public reading room in accordance with the law and established procedures.” The bureau said that under law, documents requested three or more times are made public “shortly after they are processed.” That processing, the bureau said, is on a “first in, first out basis.”
White House spokesman Josh Earnest said he saw the FBI tweet shortly before he boarded Air Force One with President Barack Obama for a trip to Columbus, Ohio, to campaign for Hillary Clinton, but was unaware that anyone at the White House was consulted about the material before it was released.
“I’ve not spoke to anybody who has any awareness of being consulted about that material before it was released,” Earnest told reporters traveling with the president.
The newly released FBI documents are from a 2001 federal investigation into Bill Clinton’s pardon at the end of his administration of Marc Rich, who was indicted in 1983 and evaded prosecution in Switzerland. Rich died in 2013.
The files briefly cited the Clinton Foundation in connection with a large donation in support of Clinton’s presidential library. The FBI documents cited public records showing that an unidentified person donated to “the William J. Clinton Foundation, a foundation that supports the Clinton presidential library.”
Rich’s ex-wife, Denise Rich, pledged a $450,000 donation to the Clinton Foundation’s project to develop and build the presidential facility. The new FBI archive does not name Denise Rich, but FBI agents sought to talk to her as part of the probe into her former husband’s pardon.
Despite the extensive redactions, the FBI archive cites evidence being prepared for a federal grand jury, agents’ reports and internal memos. Agents appeared to be interested in a New York dinner in which the Rich pardon may have been discussed.
The federal probe started under then-U.S. Attorney Mary Jo White, who now heads the Securities and Exchange Commission for the Obama administration. When White left office in 2003, she was replaced by James Comey, the FBI director now under fire for notifying Congress last week about his agency’s decision to review emails to and from Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
The Rich investigation did not lead to federal charges under Comey and the case was closed in 2005.
All Souls’ Day
It was St. Odilo, the abbot of Cluny in France, who in the 10th century proposed that the day after All Saints’ Day be set aside in honor of the departed—particularly those whose souls were in purgatory. Today, the souls of all the faithful departed are commemorated. In many Catholic countries, people attend churches and visit family graves on this day to honor their ancestors. In Mexico, it is a national holiday called Día de los Muertos (or Day of the Dead). Orthodox Christians commemorate the dead on the second Saturday before Lent begins and on the day before Pentecost.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
Warren G. Harding (1865)
With promises to the war-weary American public of a “return to normalcy” in the wake of WWI, Harding was elected 29th president of the US. However, his administration soon earned a reputation for corruption. As an investigation into what proved to be the Teapot Dome scandal began, he traveled to Alaska, where he was informed of the corruption about to be exposed. While en route home, he became mysteriously ill, allegedly from food poisoning, and suddenly died. What caused his death?: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

The Balfour Declaration (1917)
The Balfour Declaration was a British government statement promising the establishment of a homeland for the Jewish people in Palestine that would not disturb non-Jews already living there. The British anticipated gaining a mandate over Palestine after WWI and hoped to win over Jewish public opinion for the Allies. They also hoped that pro-British settlers would help protect the approaches to the Suez Canal, a vital link to Britain’s South Asian possessions.

The Ryutin Affair
The Ryutin Affair, one of the last attempts of the Soviet Communist Party to oppose Stalin, took place in 1932, when Martemyan Ryutin, an Old Bolshevik, decided to secretly oppose the controversial Soviet leader. In a nearly 200-page document now known as the “Ryutin Platform,” he called for Stalin’s elimination and a “fresh start,” but he was soon identified as the author, imprisoned, and ultimately executed. What happened when Stalin initially proposed the death penalty for Ryutin?: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
