Regis Debray takes the kind of theatre at the Festival d'Avigon this year to task in Le Point:

People fight, backstab and slit each others' throats. It all happens live, and those in charge don't stop rubbing it in: The world is violent. You want wit? Well don't count on us to sweeten the bitter pill. Have a good look at today's hard times, or leave the theatre. The argument doesn't carry a lot of weight. Is there no other suffering than psychosis and perversion? Debray contre les m'as-tu-vu d'Avignon.

Ceuta and Melilla

The BBC and local paper El Telegrama report Morocco has admitted its border guards shot dead four African migrants trying to enter the Spanish enclave of Melilla earlier this month:

Six people were killed on 6 October in a mass raid on the double razor-wired fence which separates the Spanish territory of Melilla from Morocco.

You can get the back story in this piece from Der Spiegel [in English]

And if you missed Boubacar Boris Diop's reponse to the shootings in the Neue Zürcher Zeitung, you can find it here.
