The Vietnam War ruled 30 years of the country’s history in the 20thcentury. US Military invaded between 1965 and 1973 and sent hundreds of thousands of US soldiers into the war. The excuse was to prevent a Communist takeover of the whole country which was divided into the communist North, and the pro-American South. In1975 the North won the war and the last Americans left the country.
Forty years after the war there are no more foreign troops in the country but platoons of tourists visiting the old battlefields and tunnels excavated by Viet-Cong guerillas. There is a market selling old military stuff and even faking it. The Defoliation Spray called “Agent Orange” is still affecting the people and causes disabilities. During the war US Airforces dropped 7 million tons of bombs on Vietnam and there are still remaining bombs and landmines below ground. Even though America lost the war, capitalism finally triumphed and the remains of the war serve its prosperity. So we are looking at a country that has just opened up and the new generation is being exposed to a growing Western influence.

This is above all to the credit of the middle class, which is probably the most crucial potential for the development of the country. Nevertheless you hardly notice anything about the lives of african middle class people. We traveled to the capital city of Kenya, Nairobi to meet and create a portray of people belonging to the middle class.
« Il est plus facile de briser un atome que de briser un préjugé », estimait Einstein. Habitants des « quartiers » toulousains, ces sept personnes savent combien les préjugés sont difficiles à combattre, notamment lorsqu'on est à la recherche d'un emploi. ToulEmploi et la préfecture de Haute-Garonne les a associés à la campagne « Pas de quartier pour les préjugés ». Photographiés par Hélène Ressayres, ils amènent chacun d'entre nous à s'interroger sur les idées reçues, à commencer par les nôtres… Des images (...)

À peine est-elle sacrée reine de beauté, le 12 mars dernier, qu'Ariana Miyamoto est victime d'un véritable lynchage sur la Toile. On lui reproche notamment de ne pas être assez « japonaise ». Aujourd’hui, la jeune femme entend changer les mentalités.
En perte de vitesse ces dernières années, le « tourisme social » peut toutefois se targuer d’une contribution remarquable – dans les pays industrialisés – à la démocratisation des vacances et au « voyage (...)
