G@tto: On SALE in South Sardinia

500 Parisians in Anger...

About 500 people gathered on Saturday 16 in front of the Maison des Métallos
(a cultural institution) in Paris XI, in support to Rayhana

The actress and playwriter had been doused with gasoline on Tuesday 12, as
she walked into the theater to perform in her play
A mon âge, je me cache
encore pour fumer
(At my age, I still hide to smoke).

Despite the assault, Rayhana took the stage the same evening and kept acting
until the end, on January 16, as expected.

Since December 8, nine actresses appeared every night on stage at the Maison
Métallos, in the role of
nine Algerian women meeting in a hammam -
refuge against the world of men,
while conversing freely on their daily lives and
their difficulties in the Algerian society.


The mayor of Paris Bertrand Delanoë, has told the Press this terrible event could
be linked to the subject of Rayhana's work.

I'm afraid this attack could also be related to the proximity with one of the most
fundamentalist mosques in Paris.

A look in the Press...

Certo che coraggio recitare dopo un aggessione! Ha carattere questa donna!
