  • One month after Mexico City metro disaster, public demands justice

    Mexico City, Jun 3 (EFE).- Thursday marked one month since Mexico City's metro disaster, which killed 26 people and injured close to 100, as victims and residents demanded justice and denounced a lack of accountability and progress in the case.The outrage is tangible around the area of the accident in the neighborhood of Tláhuac, in the east of Mexico City, where memorials built by the neighbors have turned into protests against impunity.

TRANSLATION: Yazmín Suárez: There are practically no explanations. My feeling about this situation is impotence, it is sadness, that the government ignores you.Omero Araiza: It is justice for victims, punishment for the guilty, total demolition of Line 12. Because from its origins, since its construction, it has flaws in the design, it has structural damage. (The entire line) was supposed to be built underground.- There are still no expert reports, there are still no alleged perpetrators arrested, and the victims are already buried.Magnolia Téllez: When they started building it, it looked bad from the beginning because all of this is problematic (…) the tragedy that happened is unforgivable for the person who actually did this work.

  • 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.
