I apologise for bringing up the coming elections again. This time it's good news; Eric Cantona the ex footballer, artist and actor is looking for the 500 letters of support from mayors to allow him to stand for election. He wants to draw attention to the homeless and near homeless that live in the most terrible conditions in our big cities. I mentioned Emmaüs in a post on my Still Learning blog. Since Emmaüs' founder, Abbé Pierre, died in 2007, the homeless have lacked a high profile champion. Well if Eric gets onto the lists, he's got my vote!
This is Eric Cantona's ad about poor housing in France. It is in French, but I think it's understandable, at the ends he asks 'will you take it?'
