A "living"grave

#PÉZENAS. Xavier Seigle, internationally renowned pianist, died in January 2023. Dominique Landauer, her husband, wanted "a burial worthy of the man. I wanted a living burial. As he was a pianist, we made him a piano".

#NÎMES. This Tuesday, April 2, at dawn, prison guards launched a social movement at the remand center to denounce their mainly "degraded working conditions by the lack of staff and prison overcrowding", explained David Dehaye of the Ufap Unsa union.

The movement aimed to disrupt the transfers of detainees to the courts to slow down their activity. Several files had to be delayed or postponed. The unionist assures that around a hundred agents ensure the functioning of the Nîmes prison which “welcomes” "around 430 inmates for an initial capacity of 210, that's almost 220 % overcrowding".

52 large vats stolen

#HERAULT. A figure "a minimum" according to Sébastien, market gardener in Tressan, exasperated after three consecutive thefts. After filing a complaint, he was exasperated and published a post on Facebook to warn thieves and notify local farmers. He didn't think he would get so much feedback. "I found myself drowning in emails from other victims."

Farmers and winegrowers from Bélarga, Le Pouget, Aspiran, Adissan, Paulhan, Nébian… "In total, I have recorded fifty-two thefts of tanks of the same type." And to send a message. "There is only one thing to do, and that is to file a complaint. If we don't file a complaint, it's nothing but wind and the police do not suspect the extent of the phenomenon." An investigation is underway.
