  • Salvini urges Conte to find a solution to political crisis

    Rome (Italy), Jan 14 (EFE), (Camera: Álvaro Padilla).- Italy's far-right Thursday urged the government to find an urgent solution to the country's political crisis.SOUNDBITES OF MATTEO SALVINI, NORTHERN LEAGUE LEADER: "It is not possible that Italians do not know whether or not there is a government. I repeat: we are facing a health emergency, schools are closed, also businesses, new taxes are going to be applied and it is not known whether or not we have a government. Let Conte come to Parliament today and resign at the Quirinal. If there is a majority that governs we will do our part and, if there is not a majority, we will return confidence to the citizens as we have requested since last year. As you remember, last year we said that this was a majority that would fight over everything and would go home soon. It has taken a year and they have done nothing." "Either there is a team that governs for two years or, he repeats, let's give the word to Italians."

  • Thousands ask for an urgent solution to Alitalia

    Rome, Apr 14 (EFE) .- (Camera: Álvaro Padilla) Some 5,000 protesters in Rome asked on Wednesday for an urgent solution to the paralysis that Alitalia airline is going through, in bankruptcy since May 2017 and whose financial crisis has delayed payment of wages and threatens bankruptcy.FOOTAGE OF THE PROTEST IN FRONT OF THE MINISTRY OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.SOUNDBITES OF THE NATIONAL SECRETARY OF THE FILT CGIL UNION FABRIZIO CUSCITO.TRANSLATION"Air transport is the sector that is going through the biggest crisis at the moment and because there is no answer for air transport. All Italian companies, all airlines are bankrupt or have gone bankrupt, there are thousands of workers who run the risk of losing their job and they have no aid to make ends meet".Translation 2: "Alitalia in air transport is so far behind compared to the rest of European countries that it is not even possible to work on the proposals. Unfortunately, we are in a very different situation from France and I wish we had the problems that France has but this is not the case because France has received about 15,000 million aid for its airlines, something that has not happened in Italy ".Translation 3: "We will continue to protest until we have answers for Alitalia for Air Italy and the rest of the companies in the sector."

  • 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.
