In the news this Saturday, September 16

Medina. Rapper Médine Zaouiche, whose appearance at the Europe Écologie Les Verts summer universities was the subject of intense controversy, will be present this Saturday, September 16 at the Fête de l'Humanité. The event, organized by the eponymous daily close to the Communist Party, takes place from September 15 to 17, and will host, in addition to the rapper, the Belgian singer Angèle, Hubert-Félix Thiéfaine and Bigflo and Oli.

Cleaning. Saturday September 16 will be World Cleanup Day. Launched in 2008 in Estonia, it now involves 153 countries and, in 2018 (current record), had 18 million participants across the globe. In France, Lille chose this date to launch a major cigarette butt collection operation across the city.

Heritage. Like every year, September rhymes with heritage. This Saturday September 16 and Sunday September 17, Europeans could discover many buildings and places traditionally closed to the public (such as the Élysée) while museums will see their prices drop, when they do not adopt free admission.

Rugby. Three matches will be on the Rugby World Cup program. At 3 p.m., Samoa will challenge Chile. At 5:45 p.m., the Portuguese neophytes will face Wales for the first match in their history. Finally at 9 p.m., the poster will pit one of the big favorites, Ireland, against the Tonga Islands.

Ligue 1. After the international break, football also resumes its rights. At 5 p.m., two championship outsiders, Stade Rennes and Lille OSC face each other at Roazhon Park. Then at 9 p.m., Lens, 17th in the ranking (and yet second last year) will host promoted Metz.
