Iranians remain pessimistic despite end of Muslim travel ban

Description

Tehran (Iran), Feb 17 (EFE), (Camera: Marina Villén).- Many Iranians saw how their dreams suddenly disappear when Donald Trump's administration imposed the so-called Muslim travel ban. The ban has recently been cancelled by the new US president Joe Biden, which has brought hope to many while others feel it is too late for them. FOOTAGE OF ELNAZ ALAMÍ'S HOUSE AND STREETS OF TEHRAN. SOUNDBITES OF ELNAZ ALAMÍ, PSYCHOLOGIST. "When I knew that my mother had had cancer for two years and I could not be there, I should have been by her side but I was not, it was very painful, and I am sure that the same happened to my mother too. It caused me a lot of sadness, I cried a lot.""When my mother and my other sister left, I felt a great emptiness in my life. I was very lonely, and it was very difficult for me on a personal level."

  • 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.
