#Griveaux : Hello. Ce mercredi, on est devant la 14e chambre du tribunal judiciaire de Paris pour suivre le procès de cinq "gilets jaunes" accusés d'avoir enfoncé la porte du ministère de Benjamin Griveaux à l'aide d'un chariot élévateur. Pour rappel ⬇️
#Griveaux : Les faits remontent au 5 janvier 2019. Autrement dit à une autre époque. Une époque où le Covid n'existait pas, où les "gilets jaune" animaient les week-end et où Benjamin Griveaux n'était pas encore candidat à la mairie de Paris... #Anachronie
#Griveaux : Le procès a été renvoyé quatre fois pour aboutir à cette audience. Cette fois-ci, elle doit s'étaler sur deux jours. Les cinq prévenus vont être jugés pour "dégradations" et "vol" du transpalette ayant permis d'enfoncer la porte du ministère. (Photo : B.GUAY / AFP)

#Readers who justify #bookpiracy because THEY are poor i.e can buy the latest tech, fashions, daily coffees but cannot 'afford' books, we need to have a talk, and #RealityCheck ...
1. Those who download from #pirate sites wouldn't buy the book anyway.

To justify theft by saying that the thief wouldn't pay for what they stole is ridiculous. Clearly, they wanted the product but didn't think it was 'worth' $4 because they can steal it without consequences.
2. Authors earn lots of money, they're just being greedy.

In the latest @ALCS_UK research "“The median annual income of a professional author is £10,500 (US$11,300), which is well below the minimum wage."

1% of authors earn huge sums, most of us barely scrape a living.
