- Three questions
North Korea has proceeded to a new provocation
in performing an underground nuclear test. How should the international
Among the hypocrite protests of the
international community, they are those from the United States
and France. Is the Korean bomb more dangerous than theirs? The
United States were the first to make use of an atomic bomb.
- And France did not bother to make
nuclear tests in the Pacific without regards to the population
of the islands without taking care of the international opinion.
We cannot give any lesson. The bomb that is in the hands of the
dictator in Pyongyang is as dangerous than the one possessed
by other countries. I am for the total ban of the nuclear weapons
whoever has it. The unanimous condemnation by the Security Council
of the UNO is an important step.
- As it happens often the first
victims are the civilian populations
How to get out of
this dilemma without helping a dictatorial regime?
The North Korea population suffer regularly
of hunger. One third of the children are not fed properly.
- There is an army of one million
soldiers for a population of 23 millions! The budget for the
defence is enormous. This nuclear test is extravagant for this
It is a headlong flight of the dictatorship.
The international sanctions can be diplomatic, financial or commercial
especially for weapons or luxury products, without an embargo
on the necessary food for the population.
- In France the ex-squatters of
Cachan (a suburb of Paris) have finally found a lodging. Some
mediators, of which the President of SOS racism, said that some
leftist associations have used for themselves the problems of
the immigrants without documents to show they are existing, that
without them the solution would have been found quicker. What
do you think about these accusations on associations with which
you are often seen?
First it is important for me to know
what the foreigners without documents in Cachan thought and said.
They were well organized. The women had their delegates and spokeswoman,
the same for the men. The hunger strikers had also their spokesman.
They held assemblies with debates. It was the immigrants without
documents who were deciding and nobody else.
- To say the contrary is to be unfair
with them. For instance they were not afraid to refuse the proposals
made by the mediators when they did not correspond to what had
been previously agreed.
The spokesman of the hunger strikers
requested to see me to know what I thought: " should we
stop the hunger strike after 43 day long and accept to go to
hospital? We ask you because we feel confident in you. You are
a man of God, you are not a politician".
