Le Monde interviews ‘the other Neda’

FRENCH PAPERS, Thursday, 9th September 2010: Neda Agha-Sultan died during an opposition rally in Teheran on the 20th June 2009. Video footage of her death went viral online and the next day, a photo of another Neda began to appear on news media… a case of mistaken identity that began on Facebook. The mistaken Neda now lives in exile in Germany; she speaks to Le Monde. Elsewhere, pension reform is on the front pages of most papers this morning.

Articles in today’s French press review:
 
Pension reform is on all the front pages this morning with a focus on the Socialist Party’s ambiguous position. The leader of the Socialist Party Martine Aubry is reluctant to take centre stage in opposing Sarkozy’s plans: Le Figaro, lLe Figaro (editorial), Le Monde, Le Parisien
 
Yet it seems even papers on the left agree that the reform is now likely to be passed: Libération (editorial)
 
The Communist paper l’Humanité refers to Sarkozy’s concessions as “crumbs”, this after the President responded to mass strikes on Tuesday. The paper encourages a mass participation in two further days of industrial action on the 15th and 23rd September.
 
Finally, “the other Neda” speaks to Le Monde.
