 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.

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.?

However, Trump later told NBC?s Lester Holt that the decision to fire Comey was his own, and that he considered ?this Russia thing? while assessing Comey?s future at the Justice Department.

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.

Rashad Jennings Is Your New ‘Dancing With The Stars’ Champion

Who needs a Super Bowl ring when you have a Mirror Ball trophy? 

After recapping the entire season like we haven?t been watching the whole time, ?Dancing with the Stars? finally announced the show?s new champion, as Season 24 came to a close on Tuesday night: NFL?s Rashad Jennings and his partner Emma Slater.

Hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews revealed the winners of the Mirror Ball trophy after the duo laid waste to the dance floor. With less than 24 hours to master a finale routine, Jennings and Slater received nearly perfect scores across the board from the panel of judges.

MLB star David Ross and partner Lindsay Arnold were the runner-ups, while Normani Kordei and partner Val Chmerkovskiy placed third, which surprised pretty much everybody, including her Fifth Harmony bandmates who were in the audience. 

?I just wanted people to enjoy watching me on the dance floor,? Jennings told People, reflecting on his journey throughout the season. ?I hope people get up on their couch and dance when they?re watching at home. I just wanted to bring fun to the dance floor.?

Season 24 of the hit ABC reality show was chock-full of twists, with early frontrunners actress Heather Morris and Olympian Simone Biles eliminated long before many fans expected. However, in recent weeks, Jennings gained momentum by infusing his footwork with a sense of fun and personality. 

Of course, Twitter was quick to weigh in on the outcome with many celebrating Jennings? win, while others lamented Kordei?s loss after a season of consistently high scores and expert dancing.

If the over two-hour finale didn?t satisfy all your dancing needs, then you can catch both Jennings and Slater on the ?DWTS? tour this summer. 

?Dancing with the Stars? will return for Season 25 this September on ABC.
