Des images contre les clichés sur les oubliés de Calais

Dans son livre 
Des hommes vivent ici (1), 
la photographe Marion Osmont raconte le quotidien des migrants le long du littoral de la 
Manche, dix ans après 
la fermeture du camp de Sangatte. Un travail
 plein d’humanité 
et de dignité.

calais_m

Un grand hangar vide. Au loin, un groupe d’hommes. Sept ou huit Africains, assis ou debout autour d’une table, jouent aux cartes. Un clair-obscur d’humanité au milieu du néant. « Je suis contente d’avoir pu prendre cette image, raconte son auteure, la photographe Marion Osmont. Berlusconi, le passeur (en capuche – NDLR), m’a dit “Tu fais ce que tu veux”, cet état de grâce a duré trois secondes. Cette image montre l’attente d’une journée ordinaire. Il ne se passe rien. »

Pendant plus de deux ans, Marion Osmont a photographié la vie quotidienne des migrants de Calais. Elle publie ces photos dans un livre au titre éloquent Des hommes vivent ici. D’une grande sobriété, ses images montrent la vie dans le dépouillement : la préparation du feu, la cuisine, les nuits dans le squat, l’ennui, le linge qui sèche sur un arbre, la traque, le froid, la peur. Loin des clichés vus et revus sur les migrants de Calais, les photos de Marion Osmont sont remplies d’humanité et de dignité.

« On parle trop souvent d’eux et de nous »

Son travail est le résultat d’une démarche mûrement réfléchie. « On parle trop souvent d’eux et de nous. Je ne voulais surtout pas ça. Je pense que beaucoup de gens, s’ils savaient ce qu’il se passe à Calais, ne trouveraient pas ça normal. J’ai donc travaillé à créer de l’empathie. » MarionOsmontcouv

Pour cela, la photographe s’attache à suivre deux migrants « au plus près », Ammanuel et Haroon. Les deux hommes ne se laissent pas simplement photographier, ils sont des acteurs à part entière de la démarche du livre. « Ils m’ont montré des lieux, des campements, m’ont raconté leurs parcours. Ce n’était pas facile pour eux, mais il leur paraissait important que leur histoire soit connue. Pour que ça puisse provoquer des changements. »

Deux migrants suivis au quotidien

Marion Osmont attend quelques semaines après le démantèlement de la jungle pachtoune en septembre 2009 pour commencer son travail. « Tous les migrants étaient revenus, il fallait montrer que cette opération n’avait servi à rien. » Parisienne, elle passe ses week-ends à Calais pour suivre ces deux migrants qui ne sont pas « de passage », contrairement à ce que prétendent les ministres de l’Immigration de Nicolas Sarkozy. Tous les deux demandeurs d’asile, ils attendent la réponse de l’Office français des réfugiés (Ofpra) dans le plus total dénuement.

Des hommes vivent ici montre la vie des migrants en plan large. « C’est une forme de respect, dit-elle. Ils sont sous pression en permanence, les flics les réveillent toutes les nuits, les journalistes peuvent être parfois intrusifs. Je voulais des photos assez douces. » Exclues donc les images de la distribution, où l’on voit les migrants dans les files d’attente ou manger sur un bout de trottoir. Pendant longtemps, la photographe s’est aussi refusée à immortaliser ces séances durant lesquelles les migrants se brûlent les doigts pour échapper aux renvois vers d’autres pays d’Europe.

Trajet décomposé

Dans cette vie quotidienne calaisienne, la police est omniprésente. Dès l’aube, lorsqu’elle intervient dans les squats pour arrêter les migrants. Dans les évacuations de campements ou les destructions de squats. À chaque fois, il faut trouver un nouvel endroit où dormir, toujours plus loin, plus caché. Dans la série de photos Chez Haroon, Marion Osmont décompose le trajet pour rejoindre la cachette du Soudanais : « Traverser un hangar / se glisser dans un trou / longer un tunnel aménagé sous le sol / passer un premier mur / marcher le long d’un corridor à travers ronces / passer un deuxième mur / marcher sur un toit / passer par une fenêtre cassée / monter un escalier défoncé. » Délogé, Haroon devra s’installer encore plus loin…

Aujourd’hui, Haroon et Ammanuel, tous deux déboutés du droit d’asile après des années d’attente, sont partis vers d’autres horizons. « Je les imagine quelque part en Europe, à la rue», dit Marion Osmont. Encore plus brisés que lors de leur arrivée à Calais, il y a quelques années. « Il était encore temps de les aider alors. Avec des soins psychologiques, peut-être qu’ils auraient pu se récupérer. C’est un immense gâchis. » Aujourd’hui, environ 300 migrants survivent à Calais même. Quelque 500 autres s’éparpillent dans des petits campements le long du littoral. Dans des conditions toujours plus précaires.

Trump Backers Share His Animosity Toward The Media, Poll Shows

As President Donald Trump continues his crusade against what he brands ?fake news,? 60 percent of those who voted for him view the media as their ?enemy,? according to a new Huffpost/YouGov poll.

That?s up from the 51 percent of Trump supporters who gave that answer in a February survey.

Overall, 25 percent of Americans in the new poll say the media is an enemy to people like themselves, with 19 percent calling it unfriendly. Just 17 percent label the media friendly and 13 percent view it as an ally, with 26 percent not sure.

Those figures are similar to the ones in the February poll.

The latest survey follows a string of recent anti-press incidents. Four journalists were either manhandled or arrested while reporting in May, and a Kentucky newspaper?s windows were shattered.

Trump, who often lashed out against journalists during his presidential campaign, has continued to do so as president. On Wednesday afternoon, his campaign texted backers a fundraising appeal including the phrase, ?FAKE NEWS is the enemy.?

As noted in February, the rating scale ? ally, friendly, unfriendly, enemy ? is one YouGov typically uses to measure Americans? views of foreign countries rather than the Fourth Estate. But the metric seems newly appropriate for domestic use given Trump?s attitude toward the press, as well as record levels of political animosity.

Indeed, 49 percent of Republicans consider the Democratic Party to be the ?enemy,? while almost the exact same number of Democrats ? 48 percent ? say that about the GOP.

As for attitudes toward Trump, 40 percent of Americans consider him an ally or a friend to people like themselves, with 16 percent considering him unfriendly and 27 percent an enemy.

 

Ill-feelings from the contentious election linger, with 86 percent of Trump voters saying Hillary Clinton voters are either the enemy of people like themselves or unfriendly. Among Clinton?s supporters, 81 percent apply one of those characterizations to Trump voters.

This Artist Will Draw Your Portrait If You Share Your Darkest Secret

Philippines-based illustrator Terence Eduarte takes the kind of secrets people would be wary to tell their closest friends and illustrates them for the whole Internet to see.

The art project ? called 100 Days of Secrets ? started two months ago, when the 24-year-old artist asked his friends to share their secrets in exchange for a portrait. Since then, he?s received secret submissions from Instagram followers from around the world. 

The resulting works explore complicated, knotty personal issues, from learning of a parent?s extramarital affair:

To confessions about catfishing:

In an interview with HuffPost, Eduarte said he was taken aback by strangers? willingness to open up to him. 

?I think the project has become an outlet for people to let out thoughts and feelings they normally wouldn?t tell anyone,? he said.

Some people tell Eduarte they?re just thankful to have a sounding board for their secrets, regardless of the portrait. 

?A lot of people who have written to me said they really didn?t mind if I?m not able to include them in the project,? he said. ?They just wanted to share their burden with someone.?

Donald Trump Reportedly Plans To Withdraw From Paris Climate Deal

President Donald Trump plans to withdraw from the Paris Agreement on climate change, multiple outlets reported Wednesday. This would make the United States one of just three countries outside the historic pact to reduce planet-warming emissions.

Trump pledged during his campaign to ?cancel? the deal, but delayed a decision for months amid a split in the administration on the issue. But in recent weeks, the camp opposing the accord apparently convinced the president to abandon it ? despite few political advantages and harsh economic and diplomatic consequences.

Under the terms of the deal, the U.S. cannot officially withdraw until November 2019. But even an announcement that the country is looking to leave the deal shows that the White House has no plans to meet earlier targets for slashing greenhouse gas emissions.

That much was already clear. In March, Trump ordered the Environmental Protection Agency to review the Clean Power Plan ? a sweeping regulation passed by former President Barack Obama to limit emissions from the utility sector, by far the country?s biggest emitter. The policy was already stayed by the Supreme Court in February 2016 as a result of a lawsuit filed by former Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, who is now Trump?s head of the EPA. Without the Clean Power Plan, the U.S. wouldn?t even come close to meeting its goals laid out in the 2015 Paris Agreement.

Trump vowed to jumpstart the U.S. economy by eliminating environmental regulations he blamed for holding back companies. In particular, he positioned himself as a staunch advocate for fossil fuels, nixing climate change funding from his proposed budget and scrapping rules that discourage pollution and boost renewable energy. But, somewhat ironically, major oil, gas and coal companies ? along with a plethora of other big corporations ? urged Trump to keep the U.S. in the Paris Agreement.

Environmental groups have little legal recourse given that the Obama administration bypassed the Senate to ratify the deal, arguing it did not constitute a treaty. But the Trump administration is still required to regulate carbon dioxide emissions as a public health threat under a 2007 Supreme Court ruling. How it plans to fulfill that legal responsibility that is unclear.

Quitting the Paris Agreement strikes a major diplomatic blow to the U.S. Only war-torn Syria and Nicaragua, the second-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, are not included in the accord. Retreating from the agreement, which the U.S. took a lead role in brokering, brands the nation as a ?rogue country? and a ?climate pariah,? diplomats said. Without a seat at the table, the U.S. loses leverage over policy action on global warming, and cedes influence to rival superpower China, which has vowed to support poorer countries? efforts to adapt to climate change.

?Who cares?? Myron Ebell, a top climate change denier who led Trump?s EPA transition team, told HuffPost on Tuesday ahead of the announcement. ?If countries are moving in the wrong direction, I don?t think the leader of that movement has much to look forward to. It seems to me that President Trump has a chance to not only turn the direction of the country around but the direction of the world around. Good luck to China.?

Who cares? … It seems to me that President Trump has a chance to not only turn the direction of the country around but the direction of the world around.
Myron Ebell, a top climate change denier who led Trump?s EPA transition team

Yet few credible, peer-reviewed scientists believe manmade climate change isn?t a major problem, and a growing number of investors are already pouring money into transforming the energy economy.

The economic effects of leaving the Paris Agreement would likely be devastating. The U.S. is poised to lose access to fast-growing clean energy markets as Europe, India and China gain major footholds in an industry estimated to be worth $6 trillion by 2030. Countries that tax emissions could now put a tariff on American-made imports, complicating Trump?s plans to reclaim the U.S. mantle as a top manufacturing hub.

?It?s very clear that the energy economy is heading in a direction that, if you don?t engage with climate change, you?re going to miss out on a large number of jobs that have already emerged,? David Waskow, director of the World Resource Institute?s international climate program, told HuffPost before the announcement. ?Withdrawing and retreating would have very negative implications for the U.S. economically.?

It?s unclear what Trump gains politically from the withdrawal. The deal had overwhelming support. Sixty-one percent of Americans said the country should remain in the deal, while just 17 percent support withdrawing and 21 percent aren?t sure, according to a HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted earlier this month. And more than 400 U.S. cities, 37 states, 800 universities and nearly half of all Fortune 500 companies have already set their own clean energy and emissions targets.

‘Wonder Woman’ Lassos A 96 Percent Rotten Tomatoes Rating

We were psyched to see the Gal Gadot?led ?Wonder Womanreceive positive early buzz on Twitter ? and now that full reviews are here, the praise keeps pouring in.

Entertainment Weekly called the WWI-set superhero film ?smart, slick and satisfying,? while USA Today dubbed it ?the best movie … DC Comics has put out in its own cinematic universe.? Meanwhile, Mashable writer Angie Han praised director Patty Jenkins? handling of the complicated titular character, someone who ?needs to be optimistic but not naive, fierce but not frightening, unquestionably good but not tragically boring, intriguingly alien but not totally inhuman,? ultimately deciding that Gadot and Jenkins get the balance ?exactly right.?

As of press time, the film?s Rotten Tomatoes rating sat at an impressive 96 percent.

?Wonder Woman? isn?t without its detractors; in its review, The Guardian called Gadot?s character a ?weaponised smurfette? in the tangles of a ?silly plot.?

But all told, it?s a super-sized sigh of relief for superhero fans ? and Warner Bros. executives.

While Marvel titles have scored big with franchise hits ? most recently, ?Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2? ? DC titles have failed to reach the same critical acclaim in recent years. Using Rotten Tomatoes ratings as a benchmark, other films in the DC cinematic universe did not impress: ?Batman v Superman? (2016) earned 26 percent, while ?Suicide Squad? (2016) leveled off at 25 precent. ?Man of Steel,? out in 2013, did slightly better at 55 percent.

As EW pointed out, the ratings also put ?Wonder Woman? ahead of Marvel films like ?Iron Man,? ?The Avengers? and ?Guardians of the Galaxy.?

Early reviews of ?Wonder Woman? are significant beyond the fact that it seems DC has avoided another flop. They?re a clear statement that female directors can successfully helm a major action film. (That shouldn?t really be a question, but it?s 2017 and Jenkins is the first woman to direct a Marvel or DC superhero film, so here we are.)

While male directors can generally weather a box office disaster and still continue their careers, the dearth of opportunities given to women behind the camera ? especially for big-budget projects ? means that all eyes inevitably fall on the rare female director who breaks through. And if she missteps, suddenly a whole gender, rather than an individual, becomes a risky choice.

?On the one hand I?m shocked that [female filmmakers are] such a rarity, [and] I?m super grateful that I?m the person who gets to do it, but on the other hand, I only got here by not thinking about that at all,? Jenkins said of her career in an interview with the Los Angeles Times. ?I got here by assuming that I could do what I wanted if I was willing to work hard enough to do it.?

After her last film, 2003?s ?Monster,? Jenkins had said that she wanted to helm a Wonder Woman film for over a decade. She finally became involved with the project in 2015. 

For Jenkins, showing respect for Wonder Woman?s deep resonance with audiences was paramount. The director even took steps to ensure that the film avoided an R rating, so that young girls would be able to see a character who represents strength to women around the world. 

?Wonder Woman? is out June 2.

George Takei Dismantles Racist, Sexist Criticism Of ‘Star Trek: Discovery’

CBS released a trailer earlier this month for its upcoming ?Star Trek: Discovery,? the first television series in the franchise since ?Star Trek: Enterprise? ended in 2005. 

The trailer excited many fans, but it also led to a familiar anger, as many people decried the casting of Michelle Yeoh, an Asian woman, as the ship?s captain and Sonequa Martin-Green, a black woman, as the ship?s first officer.

The trailer for ?Star Trek: Discovery?

?Enough with your racial and gender quotas Hollywood,? one commenter wrote. Many others wrote similar comments, much of it even more vile. 

On Sunday, George Takei, who played the iconic character Hikaru Sulu in the original ?Star Trek? series and multiple movies, joined MSNBC?s ?AM Joy? to discuss the views of people who believe the Star Trek franchise is being tainted in an attempt to diversify the cast. 

On the show, he quickly and swiftly dismantled the criticisms, exposing the critics as ignorant of the intentions of creator Gene Roddenberry.

?Today in this society we have alien life forms that we call trolls,? he said. ?And these trolls carry on without knowing what they?re talking about and knowing even less about the history of what they?re talking about.?

?Now these so-called trolls haven?t seen a single episode of the new series, because it hasn?t been aired,? he continued. ?And they don?t know the history of Star Trek [either] ? [Star Trek creator] Gene Roddenberry created this with the idea of finding strength in our diversity ? and also the delight of life in diversity.?

He then added: ?We had a guiding acronym ? IDIC ? which stood for infinite diversity in infinite combinations. We boldly went where we hadn?t gone before because we were curious about what?s out there. And when you go out into space you are going to have even greater diversity.?

During the interview, Takei also compared the ignorance of these ?trolls? to the recent actions of President Donald Trump, whom he described as ?ignorant? when it comes to issues of Japanese internment, which affected Takei?s family during WWII.

Navy SEAL Killed When Parachute Doesn’t Open In Fleet Week Demo

Fleet Week took a tragic turn not far from the Statue of Liberty on Sunday.

A Navy SEAL plummeted into the Hudson River and died when his parachute failed to open properly during a demonstration, according to reports.

The parachutist, performing with ?The Leap Frogs? parachute team, landed in the water just off Liberty State Park in Jersey City, ABC News reported. The Coast Guard and Jersey City Fire Department Marine Unit retrieved the SEAL, who was taken to Jersey Medical Center and later pronounced dead.

The parachutist could be seen peeling away from the team?s formation and fell out of view of spectators, blocked by some buildings, The New York Times reported.

Photographer Joe Shine told NJ.com that the parachutist, realizing his predicament, appeared to detach the faulty chute so he would land in the river. The chute fell onto a parking lot.

His name was being withheld until family could be notified.

?Our hearts and prayers go out to his family, and I ask for all of your prayers for the Navy SEAL community who lost a true patriot today,? said Rear Adm. Jack Scorby, commander of the Navy Region Mid-Atlantic, according to The Associated Press.

Investigators are looking into the cause of the parachute malfunction.

2 Top GOP Officials Offer Mixed Messages On Future Of Paris Climate Deal

President Donald Trump will announce a decision on whether to withdraw from the Paris Agreement next week, he said Saturday. But he already told confidants he plans to pull out of the historic accord, Axios reported Saturday night, making the United States one of just three countries to reject the global pact to reduce the planet-warming gas emissions.

But on Sunday talk shows, a White House Cabinet secretary said Trump?s decision is not yet final, and a top-ranking Republican senator urged the president to keep the U.S. in the agreement.

Defense Secretary James Mattis said Trump was ?open? and ?curious? about why the other members of the Group of 7 most industrialized nations ? Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom ? cared about combating climate change, which the president has dismissed as ?a hoax.?

?I?m quite certain the president is wide open on this issue as he takes in the pros and cons of that accord,? Mattis said on CBS? ?Face The Nation.?

The assessment echoed National Economic Council director Gary Cohn, who said Friday that Trump?s views were ?evolving.?

Trump did say the environment was important to him, Cohn told reporters, according to pool reports. ?He talked about environmental awards he received in the past. So he didn?t want anyone to think he doesn?t care about the environment,? he added.

Aside from a prize issued by a golf association to Trump?s New Jersey golf course, The Washington Post?s Fact Checker team found no evidence of any environmental awards. 

On CNN?s ?State of the Union,? Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), a rare outspoken GOP proponent of climate science, said he would advise Trump to remain in the voluntary agreement.

?If I were him, I?d stay in the agreement and make it a better deal for worldwide business centers to improve the climate and make it a better deal for business,? Graham said. ?If he does withdraw, that would be a definitive statement by the president that he believes climate change is a hoax. Stay in the deal, make it a better deal, would be my advice.?

Quitting the Paris Agreement would cede diplomatic and economic ground to rival superpower China, which is aggressively courting trade with other countries and investing at least $360 billion in renewable energy over the next four years. Diplomats warn that exiting the deal would also relegate the U.S. to the status of a ?rogue country? and a ?climate pariah.? Only war-torn Syria and Nicaragua, the second-poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, have not signed the Paris Agreement. Withdrawing would mean ?the leader of the Republican Party is in a different spot than the rest of the world,? Graham said.

?It would be taken as a statement that climate change is not a problem, not real,? he said. ?That would be bad for the party, bad for the country.?

Here’s What Hillary Clinton Thought About James Comey’s Firing

A new profile of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton published Friday reveals her initial reaction to President Donald Trump?s firing of FBI Director James Comey earlier this month.

The profile, written by New York Magazine?s Rebecca Traister, contains the first major interview the 2016 Democratic nominee has given since her narrow loss to Trump in November.

?I am less surprised than I am worried,? Clinton said of Comey?s firing. ?Not that he shouldn?t have been disciplined. And certainly the Trump campaign relished everything that was done to me in July and then particularly in October.?

?Having said that, I think what?s going on now is an effort to derail and bury the Russia inquiry, and I think that?s terrible for our country,? she added.

She also said she hopes ?this abrupt and distressing action will raise enough questions in the minds of Republicans for them to conclude that it is worthy of careful attention, because left unchecked ? this will not just bite Democrats, or me; this will undermine our electoral system.?

Read the full New York Magazine profile here.

Traister interviewed Clinton just one day after Trump fired Comey. Since then, multiple revelations have emerged during the FBI?s ongoing investigation into whether Trump associates actively colluded with Russian officials to sway the outcome of the election, including that Trump allegedly asked Comey to end the probe.

Clinton referenced those revelations during a commencement speech she gave at her alma mater, Wellesley College, on Friday. During her remarks, she spoke about the mood on campus when Richard Nixon was elected president, in an apparent jab at Trump. 

?We were furious about the past presidential election of a man whose presidency would eventually end in disgrace with his impeachment for obstruction of justice, after firing the person running the investigation into him at the Department of Justice,? she said.

While many of her former staffers had a lot to say about Comey?s firing, Clinton herself has largely stayed out of the ensuing debate.    

Under Comey?s leadership, the FBI investigated Clinton?s use of a private email server during her tenure at the State Department. In July, Comey announced he would not recommend charges against Clinton. But in October, less than two weeks before the election, Comey sent a letter informing Congress that the bureau was considering reopening its investigation after finding additional emails.

The FBI was eventually able to review those emails before the election and found that they didn?t change Comey?s previous recommendation against charges. However, many, including Clinton herself, felt Comey?s letter was partially to blame for her narrow loss to Trump. 

In a memo explaining why he recommended terminating Comey, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said the handling of Clinton?s emails had caused ?substantial damage? to the FBI?s reputation and credibility.

?I cannot defend the Director?s handling of the conclusion of the investigation of Secretary Clinton?s emails, and I do not understand his refusal to accept the nearly universal judgment that he was mistaken,? Rosenstein wrote. ?Almost everyone agrees that the Director made serious mistakes; it is one of the few issues that unites people of diverse perspectives.?

Comey addressed his handling of the Clinton investigation during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on May 3.

?It makes me mildly nauseous to think that we might have had some impact on the election, but honestly, it wouldn?t change the decision,? he testified.
