Angry farmers march to India's capital to protest against new farm laws

Description

Amritsar, Jan 12 (EFE/EPA).- Farmers in Amritsar, in northen India's state of Punjab, on Tuesday began tractor march towards New Delh to protest against new agriculture laws. They will join farmers taking part in sit-in protest against the new agriculture bill and demanding to repeal the laws at New Delhi borders. Scores of tractor trolleys are expected to move towards Delhi between 12-15 January from Punjab and Haryana in preparations for the 'parallel parade.' However, the Supreme Court on 12 January has put a hold on the new controversial agriculture laws and has formed a four-member panel to hold talks with the farmers on the issue. Several agricultural organizations have expressed their opposition to a series of controversial reforms that seek to deregulate the prices and quantity sold of certain crops, as well as establish pathways for contract agriculture.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
