Actu. Entrepreneur et Indigné: rencontre improbable

 
Etes-vous de ceux 
qui doutent des hommes politiques?
Qui sont d'autant plus excédés 
de voir se prolonger la crise 
qu'ils ne s'en sentent pas responsables?
Et qui, en même temps, 
ne veulent pas se résoudre à la subir?
Une récente publication 
pourrait vous intéresser. 
«L'entrepreneur et l'indigné. 
Deux façons de changer le monde.»
Rencontre aussi inédite 
qu'improbable...

«L’Entrepreneur et l’Indigné. Deux façons de changer le monde» doit-il être considéré comme un livre de société?
Il se veut tel en tout cas.
Car il entend
«refléter la fameuse majorité silencieuse». 
Et s’adresser à tout qui refuse de se résoudre à subir: associatifs, auto-entrepreneurs, lycéens, étudiants, retraités actifs…
L’échange entre Philippe Hayat, qui a répondu au Indignez-vous! de Stéphane Hessel par un Entreprenez! de circonstance, et Gilles Vanderpooten, coauteur de Stéphane Hessel pour Engagez-vous!, cherche à faire office d'antidote face à la morosité ambiante. 
Et aussi à jeter des passerelles...

Docteur créateur et Mister Indigné

Le public jeune a-t-il vocation à s’y retrouver par l'intermédiaire de Gilles Vanderpooten, petit nouveau de l'entrepreneuriat solidaire?
Les plus mâtures des créateurs d'entreprise n'en sont pas moins courtisés par le biais de Philippe Hayat. 
Celui-là même qui vient d’être chargé par la ministre français des PME de définir les nouveaux moteurs d’encouragement de l’entrepreneuriat en France.
A chaque lecteur, surtout, de décider s'il se range d'un côté, celui des Indignés, ou de l'autre, celui des créateurs. 
Test de personnalité à l'appui...

  1. Dear friends,


    India is stalling the toughest child labour law in its history... because politicians say it’s not a ‘priority’! But the majority of MPs support it and all they need is a massive public push to bring it to a vote. Let´s raise our voices for India´s children. Sign now:

    The Indian Parliament is closing without passing the toughest child labour law in its history. Worse, the bill is supported by the majority of MPs, but it was ignored for weeks, because they felt it was not a ‘priority’!

    India is the world’s child labour capital -- kids as young as five are sold to traffickers and forced to work as modern-day slaves, abused and beaten. The historic new bill would ban outright any child labour under 14 and provide stipends for poor families to keep their children in school. But MPs have let it fall off their agenda, and Indian child rights groups say they badly need our help, now, to ramp up the public pressure.

    If the Avaaz community comes together, we can create a wave of attention to the bill, and push MPs to vote. Sign this urgent petition and forward it widely -- when we reach 1 million we’ll deliver our message to the Parliament with former child workers:

    A staggering 215 million children work in mines, quarries, and factories around the world. All nations have signed an agreement to put the eradication of child labour at the heart of their national education plans. But, India is home to the largest child labour force in the world. If the new law passes, it would ban all child labour for under 14-year-olds and all harmful work for under 18s. The law even has provisions to ensure it doesn’t hurt the poorest families -- enshrining the right to free education and proposing stipends to compensate any losses.

    Critics say the real problem isn’t the law, it’s bad enforcement. And it’s true that in the last three years in India less than 10% of the 450,000 reports of child labour were prosecuted under the existing, weak, law. But the new law packs some serious punch. The police will no longer have to wait for a court order to act. All forms of commercial child labour under 14 will be criminalised, and instead of meaningless fines or short prison sentences, the criminals will face tough penalties.

    While the majority of MPs say they'll support the bill, there's no political urgency to bring it to a vote. But each day they delay, more children are forced into a life of sweatshop misery. It’s up to us to push them over the edge. Sign the petition to India's MPs now, and share widely:

    The Avaaz community has campaigned to protect the children and the most vulnerable, time and time again. Just weeks ago, 1.2 million of us got together to help pass the most comprehensive education plan in Pakistan. How we treat our children is a reflection on our moral compass -- and it´s time to take firm steps against their abuse. Let’s join together to speak out for the future of India’s suffering children.

    With hope and determination,

    Jamie, Alice, Alex, Alaphia, Lisa, Jeremy, Ricken, Dalia, Rewan, Michelle and the whole Avaaz team
