“Hi it’s Leo, what does it say?”

This Wednesday, February 21, Missak Manouchian enters the Pantheon. This Armenian immigrant, communist resistance fighter, fought for the freedom of France during the Second World War. It cost him his life since he was shot by the Nazis 80 years ago, on February 21, 1944, at Mont-Valérien near Paris.

For several days, precarious students have been denouncing their situation using the hashtag #LaMinuteÉtudiante on TikTok. “Help me finish the month”, “I have 30 cents left”, “I owe money to CAF”, “my fridge is empty”… By filming themselves eating, they hope to thousands of views and receive a little money donated by the platform.

And then Kylian Mbappé has just made an official request to the European Union Office for Intellectual Property in order to protect his most famous quotes, his various brands and his crossed-arms celebration. He thus wishes to protect the possible exploitation of his image by brands.

“What does it say?”, a podcast to listen to from Monday to Friday from 7:30 a.m. on franceinfo.fr, on the franceinfo WhatsApp channel, on TikTok or on all podcast platforms:
