FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Maradona, France security law, Ethiopia crisis, US presidential transition” – below is their description.
No pandemic was going to keep Argentina from its Evita moment. For hours Thursday, they filed past the coffin of Diego Armando Maradona, the rags-to-riches hero of a nation thanks to his footballing genius moved out of the shadows of the generals and defeat in the Falklands War. The rollercoaster fortunes of Maradona on and off the pitch long mirrored that of his country. The outpouring of grief total after his death of a heart attack Wednesday at age 60. They say today’s atheletes play it too safe, do not use their notoriety enough to speak out. But some, many even, do put their names on the line. French World Cup winning phenom Killian Mbappé of PSG tweeting “Dirty N-word, beaten by three policemen” with an accompanying statement that concludes with call to put a stop to racism. He is refering to the closed circuit TV footage of a Paris music producer of Ivorian origin beaten by police. The video discrediting their statement that he struggled and lunged for their service weapon. A subsequent video shows police tossed a tear gas cannister inside from the street. How to prevent further war crimes? It is more than just a premonition with at least one major massacre documented in Ethiopia.Troops making their way north towards Tigray this Friday this after the expiration of an ultimatum to the rebel province and the prime minister’s announcement of an all-out offensive. Tigraeans make up a little over five percent of Ethiopia’s population but for decades after the 1991 fall of the Mengistu regime, they held the levers of power. Now, it has come to a head with last year’s nobel peace laureate Abiy Ahmed talking of a move on Makele, the regional capital with thousands fleeing across the Sudanese border.FRANCE 24 English YouTube Channel
