Le porte-parole du gouvernement, Benjamin Griveaux, a lui assuré que “cet acte d’une immense bravoure (…) doit lui ouvrir les portes de notre communauté nationale”.

 

“Il faut régulariser Mamoudou Gassama !”

Dans un communiqué publié dimanche, SOS Racisme affirme qu’“il faut régulariser Mamoudou Gassama” “Mamoudou Gassama nous rappelle utilement que les personnes en situation irrégulière sont des êtres humains, avec leur histoire, leur parcours, leurs qualités et leurs défauts et surtout l’immense courage dont beaucoup ont fait preuve dans leur périlleux voyage vers l’Europe”, écrit l’association.

“Ce courage doit trouver, pour Mamoudou Gassama, une reconnaissance de notre pays. Et quelle plus belle reconnaissance que de permettre à cet homme de vivre tranquillement dans un pays qu’il a choisi, non par fainéantise, facilité ou recherche des aides sociales, mais tout simplement pour y mener sa vie”, conclut SOS Racisme.

Bill is a member of the Drama League of Ireland and his plays have been critically vetted and certified as original pieces of work by the DLI. Another literary project is that of commemoration of an aircraft crash on Djouce mountain in Wicklow in 1946. Bill wrote articles for the 50th, 60th and most recently the 70th anniversary, (12 Aug 2016) all were published in the Wicklow Times and ensured the survivors of the crash, all French Girl Guides, were not forgotten. Articles reproduced on this website. But mostly this site gives a more general European and specific French slant on popular and not so popular articles of French news, translated to English by the author. Each article is translated on a paragraph by paragraph basis so easy to read in either language and even possible to improve either language by comparison of the short English and French paragraphs. Amusez vous bien. The author is currently writing an easy to read technical aviation book centered around the Fokker 50. Another interest is that dealt with in another of Bill's websites www.realnamara.net, a Statue of the mother of God, Mary. It was erected in 1972 in Dublin, at the end of the Bull Wall near Clontarf, and my grandfather William Nelson, was the main instigator of that project. I give talks on the history of the statue and my grandfather's adventurous and dangerous life at sea. Technical assistance with each website is by J O'N.
