Saint-Gaston, worldwide day without mobile phone
Why did February 6th become a 'worldwide day without a mobile phone'? Because it was the day of the 'St Gaston'. Remember this of Nino Ferrer : 'Gaston y'a l'téléfon qui son. Et y'a jamais person qui y répond'. At the beginning, it was, of course, a joke made by Phil Marso, author of the whodunnit novel 'Mobile killer without obvious mobile'. However, since the madness of the mobile, the joke took more importance. Nowadays, he has a website in 7 languages as a support and receives backing from several associations worldwide. The order of the day of Tuesday, February 6th is the following : 'general strike of the mobile for 24 hours'. If there is no general strike, three breaks of two hours will be done : '7.00 AM -9.00 AM (Move along!); 12.00 AM - 2.00 PM (Digest!); 6.00 PM – 8.00 PM (Hurrah for family life!)'. Will the movement be followed? Anyway, it is a sign, it might be a beginning of a fight against the 'dictatorship of the mobile'.
