IN THE PAPERS

Latest update : 2011-12-30

'The Year of the Indignant'

The French papers look back at 2011 and at the key words that emerged: from Tweet to Fukushima. There's also a report on US soldiers returning home only to find indifference in their home town. And, economic troubles oblige, the French are enjoying their year-end office parties more than ever. That's the focus for this review of the French press, Friday 30th December 2011.

Libération leads on a review of 2011 which it is calling “The Year of the Indignant” (“L’année de tous les indignés”).

The paper looks at some of the key words now synonymous with 2011, including “Tweet” and “Dégage” (French for “Out, out, out”).

Aside its 2011 review, Libération’s top story covers the return of US troops from Iraq. Its front page headline: “Home Spleen Home”. It reports specifically on the 'blues' of one soldier, now back in a small town in North Carolina. 

La Croix, the Catholic daily, devotes its front page to this weekend’s tenth anniversary of the euro.

And Aujourd’hui-en-France/Le Parisien reports that the office party is booming at a time of economic crisis. Nine out of ten French workers attend an end of year do. Employers should be wary though, because if staff go off the rails on alcohol then the company will be liable.
