Valérie Gauriat quotes

Abortion in Malta is very much a taboo subject. I've made repeated efforts, including here in my hotel room, to try and convince people to talk to us, particularly those who want to decriminalise abortion. They exist, they're active on social media, but speaking openly is out of the question.feedback

Sociologists we've contacted didn't want to meet us. And ultimately it's here in the village of Zabbar, whose patron saint is the Madonna, that we see some light, in the street of the Immaculate Conception.feedback

Philosopher Voltaire was known for his fight against religious fanaticism, and for freedom of thought. Themes that have probably had a particular resonance in the minds of young Parisians.feedback

The bombing is dictating how Ramadan will be marked this year in Gaza. Despite speculation, few doubt their prayers will be enough to silence the shelling for good. Whatever happens, the festival of Eid will be one of bitterness.feedback

Well this morning we went to a very dangerous zone in the north of the Gaza Strip, and there we met a family whose home has been completely destroyed, and who are now sheltering at a neighbour's place. The despair is everywhere to see, stories of tragedy, they don't know where to go. They don't know what to do, how they should pray, and they're really waiting for the world to find a solution to this crisis, which has become too much to bear for the residents here in Gaza.feedback

Yes, tension is extremely high, and if you look at the streets in Gaza they are totally deserted. It's a ghost town. People are hiding, scared about the intensification of the bombing.feedback

Yes, some are hiding in their houses, if they have not already been destroyed. Others are sheltering in stairwells in buildings they've managed to get to. Others are in UN shelters. But in any case, there is a real fear of bombardments that can come at any moment and hit any location.feedback

Israel, Hamas, Palestine, Egypt, Obama, the children's words speak of politics and war. It's hard to believe that this generation, with what they have gone through, will be able or willing to contribute to efforts for future peace in this region.feedback

Some people were trying to seek refuge in this building, after fleeing from areas considered to be more dangerous. But the line between risky zones and safe zones no longer makes sense for the inhabitants, who don't know anymore where to go to avoid death.feedback

That's right. It was the al Aqsa hospital, in the centre of the Gaza Strip. It's important because it serves at least five refugee camps, which is to say tens of thousands of people. Part of it was damaged, notably the operating room. I've been told that the survivors were gathered in the hall. Furthermore, it seems that mortar fire today has been falling around the hospital area again.feedback

The rockets bound for Israel barely affect the hustle and bustle of this busy Gaza market. But people tell us that everyday life has been severely disrupted for a long time. Many believe that only weapons can change their fate, something international diplomacy has so far failed to do.feedback

All the people here are in shock. But all tell us that a new ceasefire would solve nothing as they say the blockade that suffocates Gaza still wont be lifted.feedback

The truce is broken but the door doesn't seem to have been completely closed by the Israeli government that says it wants to respect to international diplomacy. It remains to be seen if the Cairo talks will help to calm the situation.feedback

Day after day, emotions grow stronger outside the Mediclinic Heart Hospital. Even though Nelson Mandela retired from public life a long time ago, many here fear the loss of the man they consider their protector.feedback

Alexandra township shows the paradoxes facing South African society. It's proud of the freedom and tolerance Mandela brought, but it's also plagued by social and economic problems which leave a large part of the black population at the side of the road.feedback

Whatever questions Europe has, these election results are feeding an unprecedented, open debate in Tunisia. Strengthened by its revolution, public opinion is determined not to be disappointed.feedback

The fall of Gaddafi allowed most Libyan refugees in Tunisia to go home. But it's double punishment for those originally from Sub-Saharan countries; they had to leave not only their home countries but also Libya, where they went for refuge, and where their life was unenviable, with or without Gaddafi.feedback

First of all, how realistic are the Millennium Development Goals for 2015. Do you expect anything more than promises?feedback

World leaders have to face more than 900 million hungry people this week. Experts are focusing their attention on the final document, expected on Wednesday, but many already regret the absence of a concrete action plan in order to recover the time lost to reach 2015 objectives.feedback
