About  Haiti!

 

It was the very first island to get its independance  during the

slave trade ( commerce des esclaves)

It became the very first republic made for and by Black people.

Toussaint -Louverture had a lot of arguments with Napoleon

and both men (tous les deux) had the same personality:

they were determined and strong -minded. The “white ” emperor was facing the “black” emperor.

Haiti is the poorest or one of the poorest island in the world.

Haiti was the victim of  one of the biggest earthquake.

Toussaint -Louverture was imprisoned  in the Château de Joux!

He eventually died here! (il a fini par mourir ici) eventually= finalement

Scottish Holyrood and York the Shambles

http://www.answers.com/topic/holyrood-palace

BBC Monday, 8 March 2010

The Shambles, York, named Britain’s ‘most picturesque’

The Shambles, York

The Shambles is one of York’s most popular tourist attractions

A cobbled lane in York which dates from the Middle Ages has been voted Britain’s most picturesque street.

The Shambles, which is lined with 15th Century buildings, took the prize in the Google Street View Awards.

The Royal Crescent in Bath and Grey Street in Newcastle came second and third respectively in the vote.

Hampshire’s Stockbridge High Street was voted “best foodie street” and Milson Street, in Bath, “best fashion street”. More than 11,000 people voted.

They voted for their favourites after five streets were shortlisted in each category by a panel of experts, including travel editors.

Ian Addyman, who owns a shop on The Shambles, said it was full of “historic charm”.

He said: “There is a real feeling of community amongst shop owners and I think we all feel privileged to work in such a beautiful place. The shops here are all strikingly different and unique.

“Most people say that if you visit York, then at some point you will walk down The Shambles.

“It has been the backdrop for many a jigsaw, chocolate box and railway poster and once you visit you will see why.”

The buildings on Milsom Street in Bath were originally grand town houses, but most are now used as shops, offices and banks.

Stockbridge High Street was praised for its independent specialist shops, team rooms, pubs and restaurants, many of which serve local produce.

Mother’s Roses Lyrics

We all were called to come back to the old home on the farm
Mother’s passed away what a mournful day
And as my daddy watched his eyes were filled with pain and hurt
When someone stepped upon a rose and crush it in the dirt
Don’t step on mother’s roses daddy cried she planted them the day she was my bride
And everytime I see a rose I see her smilin’ face
She made my darkest days look bright round the old homeplace
Don’t step on mother’s roses let them grow
The way they did since many years ago
They’ll bloom for me each year and I’ll have mother near
Don’t step on mother’s roses let them grow
Years have passed away and how the old homeplace has changed
Daddy had to go we all miss him so
Children pick the roses as they go along the way
But when their petals are abused I hear my daddy say
Don’t step on mother’s roses…

I got stripes

On a monday I was arrested (Uh Huh)
On a tuesday they locked me in the jail (Poor boy)
On a wednesday my trial was attested
On a thursday they said « Guilty! » and the judge’s gavel fell

I got stripes — stripes around my shoulders
I got chains — chains around my feet
I got stripes — stripes around my shoulders
And then chains — then chains, they’re about to drag me down

On a monday I got my striped breeches
On a tuesday, got my ball and chain
On a wednesday I’m working digging ditches
On a thursday Lord I begged them not to knock me down again

On A Monday my Momma Come To See Me
On A Tuesday They Caught Me With A File
On A Wednesday I’m Down In Solitary
On A Thursday I Start On Bread And Water For A While

I Got Stripes — Stripes Around My Shoulders
I Got Chains — Chains Around My Feet
I Got Stripes — Stripes Around My Shoulders
And Then, Chains — Then, Chains They’re About To Drag Me Down

I Got Stripes — Stripes Around My Shoulders
I Got Chains — Chains Around My Feet
I Got Stripes — Stripes Around My Shoulders
And Then, Chains — Then, Chains They’re About To Drag Me

Johnny Cash (February 26th 1932- September 26th 2003) I got stripes

Le  chanteur parle des vêtements des prisonniers qui ont  des rayures . on peut traduire par “J’ai des rayures” ou en étoffant,

  ‘Je portais des rayures!’Après un passage à vide, il s’engage auprès des prisonniers et chante pour eux.

Il a donné un  concert à la prison de Folsom. Sa réputation a donné lieu à des très nombreuses légendes, à un mélange étonnant d’évènements plus ou moins véridiques et plus ou moins conformes à la réalité …

II- En s’aidant d’un mot connu dans la phrase, il faut retrouver la phrase entière:

Je déprime en cellule d’isolement :

Je porte des rayures ou j’ai un vêtement avec des rayures:

Ils vont me traîner par terre:

Je les ai suppliés de ne pas m’assommer:

J ‘étais au pain et à l’eau pendant un moment:

Je travaille à creuser des fossés:

Maman est venue me voir:

J’ai été arrêté:

On m’a mis en prison:

Ils ont dit « Coupable! » et le maillet (marteau) du juge est tombé:

Je portais ou  j’ai des culottes à rayures:

Mon procès a été attesté:

III- Quel(s) temps sont utilisé(s)?


Brighton in the Rain.mp3

I’ve never been to Athens and I’ve never been to Rome

I’ve only seen the Pyramids in picture books at home

I’ve never sailed across the sea or been inside a plane

I’ve always spent my holidays in Brighton in the rain.

I’ve never eaten foreign food or drunk in a foreign bar

I’ve never kissed a foreign girl or driven a foreign car

I’ve never had to find my way in a country I don’t know

I’ve always known just where I am and where I’ll never go.

I’ve read travel books by writers who have been to Pakistan

I’ve heard people telling stories of adventures in Iran

I’ve watched TV documentaries about China and Brazil

But I’ve never been abroad myself; it’s making me feel ill.

I’ve studied several languages like Hindi and Malay

I’ve learnt lots of useful sentences I’ve never been able to say

The furthest place I’ve ever been was to the Isle of Man

And that was full of tourists from Jamaica and Japan.

I’ve never been to Athens and I’ve never been to Rome

I’ve only seen the Pyramids in picture books at home

I’ve never sailed across the sea or been inside a plane

I’ve always spent my holidays in Brighton in the rain.

Famine

by

Sinead O’Connor

“Famine”


OK, I want to talk about Ireland
Specifically I want to talk about the “famine”
About the fact that there never really was one
There was no “famine”
See Irish people were only ALLOWED to eat potatoes
All of the other food
Meat fish vegetables
Were shipped out of the country under armed guard
To England while the Irish people starved
And then in the middle of all this
They gave us money not to teach our children Irish
And so we lost our history
And this is what I think is still hurting me

See we’re like a child that’s been battered
Has to drive itself out of its head because it’s frightening
Still feels all the painful feelings
But they lose contact with the memory

And this leads to massive self-destruction
ALCOHOLISM DRUG ADICTION
All desperate attempts at running
And in its worst form
Becomes actual killing

And if there ever is gonna be healing
There has to be remembering
And then grieving
So that there  can be forgiving
There has to be knowledge and understanding

An American army regulation
Says you mustn’t kill more than 10% of a nation
‘Cos to do so causes permanent “psychological damage”
It’s not permanent but they didn’t know that
Anyway during the supposed “famine”
We lost a lot more than 10% of a nation
Through deaths on land or on ships of emigration
But what finally broke us was not starvation
BUT ITS  USE IN THE CONTROLLING OF OUR EDUCATION “Schools go on about “Black 47”
On and on about “The terrible “famine””
But what they don’t say is in truth
There really never was one

So let’s take a look shall we
The highest statistics of child abuse in the EEC
And we say we’re a Christian country
But we’ve lost contact with our history
See we used to worship God as a mother
We’re suffering  from POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER
Look at all our old men in the pubs
Look at all our young people on drugs
We used to worship God as a mother
Now look at what we’re doing to each other
We’ve even made killers of ourselves
The most child-like trusting people in the Universe
And this is what’s wrong with us
Our history books THE PARENT FIGURES lied to us

I see the Irish As a race like a child
That got itself bashed in the face
And if there ever is gonna be healing
There has to be remembering And then grieving
So that there  can be FORGIVING
There has to be KNOWLEDGE and UNDERSTANDING
