Oxford students in Paris believed to be safe after attack

first_imgTwo Oxford Year Abroad students living in Paris have spoken to Cherwell about their experiences following the series of terrorist attacks in the city last Friday night which killed 129 people.The Modern Languages department emailed all third-year linguists over the weekend asking them to confirm their safety amid reports that a recent LSE graduate was among those killed. No Oxford linguists are believed to have been directly injured.Kenny Dada, a third-year linguist from Pembroke, who lives in Paris, told Cherwell, “I was at home in the UK when it happened. Gare du Nord, the station that I took the Eurostar from is one train stop from Stade de France, where some of the bombings happened. If my Eurostar had been later in the evening, I would have been right in the middle of everything. The other interns that I live with and I go into Paris for dinner/drinks all the time. What if we had decided to have a ‘big night out’ on Friday 13th? In fact, two of my friends did go into Paris on Friday and as a result of the events, they couldn’t return back to our residence and had to spend the night at the house of kind strangers.“A few weeks ago, I was at a James Bay concert in Paris. What if the terrorists had decided to hit the Olympia Music Hall on 2nd November, and not the Bataclan on 13th November?“To say that I was scared when all the horrifi c things occurred would be a massive understatement. An MBA student at the business school that I work in was one of the Bataclan victims. One of my colleagues lives a street away from one of the shootings and she was at Le Petit Cambodge for dinner the night before.“When François Hollande announced on Friday that the French borders were closed, I was so set on delaying my return to France. Eurostar offered full refunds to those that wanted to cancel their trips to Paris, and my parents really didn’t want me to go back. However, over the weekend, I realised that cancelling my return would be letting the terrorists win. So, I decided that I would keep to my original plans and go back to France on Monday 16th. It was a hard decision that was made even worse by the fact that my seven-yearold brother cried his little eyes out worrying for me, as he didn’t want me to go back. “The only reason I wasn’t killed or injured on Friday is because I’m lucky, and lazy. Having just got in from working from my 10-6 job, I was pretty tired. I didn’t want to go out. But if I had, who’s to say I wouldn’t have wound up at one of these buzzing, relatively well-known addresses? One of my colleagues – Manu, a funny, kind man and big rock fan – was at the Bataclan on Friday and he got out with just a minor knee injury. An even luckier escape, but I dread to think what he’s thinking, and how his close friends and family must be feeling. Elsa, my boss and desk-mate, lost two friends on Friday and three others have been badly hurt. Everyone knows someone or someone who knows someone who’s died.“The only way forward for Parisians is unwavering resilience, as far as I can see. Going to bars, going to gigs, watching the footie, that kind of thing. I’m going to see Spectre on the weekend – Saturday’s token act of defiance – and then maybe Canadian band Ought next week – that’ll be Wednesday’s. I expect to enjoy myself, but no doubt I’ll be placing myself near the exit. Métro commutes are awkward at the moment – everyone is looking each other in the eye and acting with a certain degree of fausse politesse – and I absolutely hate it.”In Oxford, over 400 students and locals took part in a peaceful march from the Radcliffe Camera to the Maison Française on Sunday to show solidarity with the people of France.Clara Paugam, who organised the march, said, “We wanted to organise this walk because we are all concerned about what’s happening, the victims of Paris. It could have been us. I had a friend of mine who was living on Rue de Charonne where 19 people were killed … A lot of us here are from Paris.” Many of those in attendance were French or had family in France, though a number of students without such connections joined the march to show solidarity.A number of vigils for the 129 victims have been held across colleges, including Christ Church and Hertford. “I did the one minute silence on Monday at St Pancras, and the station, which is usually buzzing was quiet enough to hear a pin drop. The Eurostar departure lounge was deserted, armed police and security were everywhere and my passport and ticket were checked multiple times. I was shaking as I came through Gare du Nord, where there was even more of a police presence and everyone on the train was visibly on edge. The atmosphere in France is tense at the moment and security has been heightened everywhere, but despite all this, the French are still defi ant and definitely not broken.”Huw Oliver, a third-year French and Linguistics student living in Paris, told Cherwell, “I was at home [in Paris] watching TV when I heard. A shooting in Paris, they said on Twitter. At first, I thought nothing of it. This kind of stuff happens outside the centre now and then. But as details trickled out on social media and newspapers, the more agitated I became. The reports were confused and contradictory, and even professional news sources had no clue about the exact goings-on. Yet it was immediately clear this was much closer to home.“The first news that came in was about the shooting at Le Carillon and Le Petit Cambodge, ten minutes down the road from my place in Belleville. Many dead. At one point they said there was a shooting at the Jourdain Métro station a few minutes up the road too (there wasn’t), so it seemed I was trapped. My eyes and fingers were glued to my phone and my laptop – which was all I could do.“As news of other shootings and the Eagles of Death Metal gig hijacking burst onto on my newsfeed, I began to think why. Why these places? Why these people? Why such innocent, normal, fun, Friday-night activities being impaled in the name of terrorism? Chances are, you can fudge an answer to these questions by now. You’ve read all the commentary and analysis. The bars of Canal Saint-Martin and Charonne, the music venues of central Paris, the black-blancbeur French football team: these are all glaring emblems of a liberal, young, mixed Western society, Paris’ enviably brilliant nightlife and its brilliantly diverse social fabrics.last_img read more

Arsenal see of Tottenham in derby

first_imgArsenal continued their fine home record against Tottenham by handing their north London rivals a first defeat of the season.Olivier Giroud scored his fourth goal this term when he tucked in Theo Walcott’s low cross at the near post.Andros Townsend had a shot saved in an open start, while Hugo Lloris denied Giroud and Walcott after the break.Wojciech Szczesny stopped Jermain Defoe’s deflected shot as Arsenal moved fourth in the Premier League table.There was one worry for Arsenal fans as midfielder Jack Wilshere came off before half-time but Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said afterwards it was illness rather than injury that prompted the 21-year-old’s withdrawal. That will potentially be a relief to England boss Roy Hodgson, who has two upcoming World Cup qualifiers, starting on Friday. This absorbing encounter lacked the high-scoring of the 5-2 victories the Gunners have enjoyed over Spurs for the last two seasons. But a fourth consecutive win since they lost to Aston Villa on the opening day was a perfect response from the Gunners to taunts about Arsene Wenger’s lack of spending compared with Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas.Tottenham have only won once at Arsenal since 1993 and, despite creating several good openings, it was Arsenal who enjoyed the more clear-cut opportunities, Santi Cazorla twice showing his invention from clever free-kicks early on.Villas-Boas has spent close to £107m on new players this summer but while his side look powerful, they were often lacking the speed of an Arsenal team with more Premier League experience – and it was an illustration of what they might miss without Gareth Bale, who is set to complete his move to Real Madrid.The first-half goal that won the game was a case in point as the ball was swept out to Walcott on the right, the Tottenham defence misjudging their attempt to move up and catch the Gunners attack offside, and the England winger crossed low for the darting Giroud to poke in at the near post.Arsenal also came close to adding to that goal when some sharp interplay led to Walcott bursting into the inside right channel but the advancing Lloris came out to thwart him on the edge of his penalty area with an expertly timed tackle. Wenger’s team, looking comfortable, were then deflated as Wilshere was withdrawn, to be replaced by new signing Mathieu Flamini making his first Arsenal appearance since April 2008.Tottenham were more energetic and had more of the ball after the break. They had a penalty appeal when Laurent Koscielny made contact with Roberto Soldado in the penalty area.But it was the hosts who again carved out the better openings as they struck on the break, Giroud drawing a superb stop from Lloris after his shot was deflected by Danny Rose. The French goalkeeper also denied Walcott twice, substitute Nacho Monreal making a hash of the follow-up from the second of those chances.Defoe was introduced after 69 minutes and had a deflected effort superbly stopped by Szczesny and new Spurs signing Erik Lamela came on for his debut as Spurs pressed for the equaliser.The visitors were not helped by a nasty ankle injury suffered by midfielder Etienne Capoue, and although at one point Villas-Boas sprinted down the touchline to urge his team on, they looked short of the extra spark that Bale so often provided last season.last_img read more
