LGBT Pride activists protest in Paris against racial injustice

first_imgA pared-down LGBT Pride march drew thousands of people to the streets of Paris on Saturday, without the colorful trucks blasting out techno music but with powerful slogans demanding racial equality and protesting against police violence.The French capital’s official Pride parade was postponed to November because of the coronavirus epidemic, but organizers decided to hold a march they said should be more politically driven and support the “Black Lives Matter” movement.”Because of COVID, the normal Pride parade had to be cancelled, but we managed to organize a Pride that is more political,” a drag king and illustrator who gave her name as Saint Eugene told Reuters TV.

Future sale)2.4center_img PURCHASES SALES David Lopez4 In just three weeks, since the signing of Raúl de Tomás became official on January 9 until Oier Olazabal arrived, on the 31st, Chen has invested more in signings than ever, concentrating on just one market and just four players (the two mentioned, plus Adrián Embarba and Leandro Cabrera) almost 40 percent of the money that, since its landing in January 2016, had been used in reinforcements. And the most striking: four years later, Chen gets paid. The difference between your investment in incorporations, that now increases to 102, millions of euros, and Revenue from transfers, amounting to 92.63 million since last summer, it’s from 10.07 ‘kilos’.This is an exceptional behavior for an emergency situation (“Chen prefers to spend the money to stay than to go up,” Vice President Carlos García Pont explained on a couple of occasions). And this is how Espanyol has become the LaLiga team that has most invested in signings in this winter market, and surpassing the following one in more than ten million, Real Madrid and its 30 by Reinier Jesus. Anyway, surely this huge expense even enters the plans of the Chinese tycoon. Álvaro González4 Javi Fireone Baptistao7 Gerard Morenotwenty Aaron Martin9 Buying and selling in the Chen era As unperturbed as his pose, which hardly knocks down with a smile in his few public appearances (and null press conferences), he had been the policy of signings of Chen Yansheng in Espanyol. Fully fulfilled his already famous 50-40-10, consisting of reinvesting each sale half in a signing, 40 percent in repairing debt and one tenth in improving the club. Until, en the winter market that ended last Friday, the owner of Espanyol decided to throw the house out the window.

This course is also exceptional in television, commercial income and, in general, all the derivatives of participating in the Europa League and of having Wu Lei on the roster. A mattress with which to face those signings unthinkable in any other season.Even so, Chen would not even get the accounts out after disbursing 41.5 million in three weeks, in a year in which he will also convert 50 million of the club’s debt with his company into shares. His unwavering policy of 50-40-10, once the sports situation is resolved, suggests that a sale will be made before the end of the exercise, on June 30. It has been and it will be.last_img read more
