Anger that drove the Arab spring is flaring again

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 07:00:14 GMT

Riots in Tunisia echo the events of 2011, when unrest swept the Middle East

When the people of Balta wanted to protest, they had to leave town. ?€?This place is so small that blocking the road is like sitting in your own hall - no one notices,?€? said Wathik Balti, a 19-year-old student.

So in December, they headed to the nearest motorway, where dozens of them blocked an important junction for hours and called on the government to do something about the lack of jobs, the chronic corruption and the faltering public services that blight the picturesque village.

'We loot or we die of hunger': food shortages fuel unrest in Venezuela

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 06:16:20 GMT

As the country?€?s economic problems mount, towns and cities have been hit by an outbreak of looting and violence

Amid desperate food shortages Venezuelans are picking up new survival skills.

On the night of 9 January, for example, a hungry mob took just 30 minutes to pick clean a grocery store in the eastern city of Puerto Ordaz. By the time owner Luis Felipe Anatael arrived at the bodega he?€?d opened five months earlier, the looters had hauled away everything from cold cuts to ketchup to the cash registers.

Turkey bombs Kurdish-controlled city of Afrin in northern Syria

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 07:39:56 GMT

A spokesman for the YPG, which Turkey wants to clear from the area, says 10 people were killed

Turkish jets have bombed the Kurdish-controlled city of Afrin in northern Syria, as the president, Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, promised to expand Turkey?€?s military border operations against a Kurdish group that has been the US?€?s key Syria ally in the war on Islamic State.

The raids came on the heels of a week of threats by Turkey, promising to clear the Kurdish People?€?s Protection Units (YPG) from Afrin and its surrounding countryside, also called Afrin. Turkey?€?s military is calling the campaign Operation Olive Branch.

Young SPD activists in last-ditch bid to rule out Merkel deal

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 21:11:45 GMT

German party?€?s younger members think coalition would be disastrous move

Germany?€?s young social democrats are demanding a clean break with Angela Merkel?€?s conservatives before a crucial vote on Sunday that will decide the country?€?s political future.

The SPD leadership, which unanimously backs entering a ?€?grand coalition?€? with centre-right parties (the so-called GroKo), and the youth wing of the party (the Jusos) were making last-ditch scrambles for support on Saturday among the 600 delegates eligible to vote at a special party conference in Bonn. The deal they are voting on has the potential to topple both Merkel and SPD leader Martin Schulz.

US Congress asks if Russian money funded Trump golf courses

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 19:04:52 GMT

?€?Enormous amounts of capital?€? flowed into UK and Ireland projects, analyst tells inquiry


The US Congress has been questioning whether Russian money could have been used to fund Donald Trump?€?s golf courses in the UK and Ireland.

It emerged after the permanent select committee on intelligence at the US House of Representatives released a transcript of the sworn testimony of the former Wall Street Journal reporter Glenn Simpson. Simpson, who works for the consulting firm Fusion GPS, was asked to research then-presidential candidate Trump in 2015/16.

How migrants won the friendship of wary Florentines

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 00:01:05 GMT
After protests against asylum seekers, a mayor has successfully led a campaign to treat arrivals with respect

When people in Sesto Fiorentino, a suburb of Florence, heard 50 asylum seekers were moving into a former hotel in the historic centre, they responded in much the same way as those in other parts of Italy.

Influenced by scenes on TV of migrants disembarking from boats in the south and a fearmongering campaign launched by local politicians from Silvio Berlusconi?€?s Forza Italia party, they united in protest.

Germany's SPD gives cautious green light to coalition talks with Merkel

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 17:38:00 GMT

Party leader Martin Schulz?€?s speech greeted with sarcastic applause and standing ovations for his fiercest critics

Germany has inched one step further towards forming a new government after the centre-left Social Democratic party (SPD) gave its lukewarm endorsement of a renewed Angela Merkel-led ?€?grand coalition?€?.

At a special SPD congress in Bonn that welcomed a speech by the party?€?s leader, Martin Schulz, with sarcastic applause and saw standing ovations for his fiercest critics, 56% of the party?€?s delegates voted in favour of moving on to the second and final stage of coalition talks with Merkel?€?s centre-right Christian Democratic Union (CDU).

UN is dealing with sexual harassment | Editorial

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 17:37:22 GMT
?€?Our policy is zero-tolerance,?€? writes the organisation?€?s under-secretary-general for management, Jan Beagle. Plus Mark Lewinski on grievance systems in schools

Your report on sexual harassment at the United Nations (19 January) raises disturbing issues that we take very seriously. As an organisation, we express our deep sympathy for staff members who have felt let down. Sexual harassment is strictly prohibited at the United Nations, and there can be no impunity.

The secretary-general, Antnio Guterres, has revised UN policies on investigations and disciplinary processes; and he has strengthened whistle-blower protection for those who report harassment. He has called on a group of senior managers to work as a rapid response unit and has set in motion a broader examination of policies, investigation capacity and support for victims across the whole of the UN.

'Public transport is cool': new Adidas trainers double as Berlin transit passes

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 12:23:26 GMT

Hundreds queued for today?€?s release - with the ?180 shoes doubling as ?700+ transport tickets, it wasn?€?t just the usual sneakerheads

Outside Overkill, a hip shoe store in Berlin?€?s Kreuzberg district, breakfast is being served: Mettbrtchen, minced raw pork on a bread roll. ?€?This isn?€?t a hipster breakfast,?€? explains Julian Kalitta of Overkill. ?€?It is typical old-school Berlin - something you can imagine one of the city?€?s tram drivers eating before work.?€?

It?€?s a fitting treat for the hundreds of people who have camped out in the snow, some since Saturday, waiting for the limited release of 500 pairs of the new EQT Support 93/Berlin shoe - an unlikely collaboration between Adidas and BVG, the city?€?s transport company.

Is this the beginning of the end of Trump's real estate empire?

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 07:15:18 GMT

The Trump name is being scrubbed off skylines from New York to Toronto to Rio as the brand backfires

It takes all of 30 seconds for the doorman at Trump Place to kick me out of the building. ?€?Ma?€?am, you need to leave,?€? he says, when I tell him I am a journalist. Then he practically shoves me out the marble lobby, back through the revolving doors .

Tensions are high at Trump Place, 200 Riverside Boulevard. The luxury condominium complex on New York?€?s Upper West Side is currently embroiled in an increasingly contentious legal battle with the Trump family. Like many of the towers bearing the Trump brand, 200 Riverside Boulevard isn?€?t actually owned by the Trumps; it simply licenses the name, which is plastered on the building in big brass letters. And now many residents don?€?t want it any more.

Aden in the spotlight: war-torn port city tries to dust itself off

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 12:00:02 GMT

Amid the carnage of the civil war, Aden is the only major city in Yemen looking open for business - but it still has a long way to go

With Yemeni president Abd-rabbu Mansour Hadi still in Saudi Arabia, the return of prime minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr to the port of Aden at the end of December underlined the interim capital?€?s importance. Amid the carnage of the Yemeni civil war and with the former capital, Sana?€?a, under Houthi control, Aden is the only major city looking remotely open for international business.

President Hadi?€?s hometown was one of the few ports to be reopened at the end of last year after the Saudi-led coalition opted to starve out the northern rebels. Now Aden must work out how to recover from ruinous damage sustained during the 2015 offensive, in which the Houthis came within a whisker of seizing the city.

50 years since Sicily's earthquake, an urban disaster of a different kind

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 06:00:48 GMT

When a quake devastated Sicily in 1968, a bold plan was hatched - to build entirely new towns and move the inhabitants. But what looked futuristic on paper would herald a new decay

Fifty years ago, the ground began to shake in Poggioreale, an ancient village in the Belce Valley of south-west Sicily.

Calogero Petralia was eating spaghetti with his family, just as he did every Sunday lunch. By the time the initial earthquake and the aftershocks that night had quietened, the house where Petralia was born and raised was gone. It was 15 January 1968 and he was 18 years old. ?€?My heart remained in that room,?€? he says.

On the Amazon’s lawless frontier, murder mystery divides the locals and loggers

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 00:05:06 GMT

The Ka?€?apor tribe fight a daily battle in Brazil?€?s Maranho state to protect their forests

Sair Ka?€?apor patrolled one of the most murderous frontiers in the world, a remote and largely lawless region of the Brazilian Amazon where his indigenous community has fought for generations to protect their forest land.

Armed with clubs, bows and arrows, GPS trackers and crude guns, he and fellow members of Ka?€?apor Forest Guard drove off - and sometimes attacked - loggers who intruded into their territory, the 530,000-hectare Alto Turiau Indigenous Land, which is roughly three times the area of Greater London and contains about half of the Amazon forest left in Brazil?€?s northern Maranho state. That vigilante role came to an end last April when Sair was stabbed to death in Betel, a logging town close to Ka?€?apor territory.

Child sex abuse inquiry to query whether Gove asked about investigation

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 17:39:52 GMT

Environment secretary?€?s alleged interest about inquiry into priest suspected of abuse surfaced last month

The child sex abuse inquiry is to write to Michael Gove to ask whether he attempted to find out about the release of an investigation into a priest suspected of abuse at a prominent Catholic boarding school.

The alleged interest of the former secretary of state for education in a police and local authority inquiry into the priest surfaced during evidence given to the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse (IICSA) last month.

Turkish president defies Russia, the US and Bashar al-Assad with assault on Kurds in Syria

Recep Tayyip Erdo?an?€?s Kurdish vendetta has taken a dramatic new twist with the cross-border ground assault on the Afrin enclave in north-west Syria.

Defying Russia, the US, and Bashar al-Assad?€?s regime, Turkey?€?s headstrong president is betting on a decisive victory over Syrian Kurd forces. But his risky gamble could quickly turn sour.

It’s convenient to say Aboriginal people support Australia Day. But it’s not true | Jack Latimore

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 17:00:26 GMT

26 January is steeped in the blood of violent dispossession and enduring trauma. Those who say Aboriginal people support it are deceiving you

Opponents to Australia Day are invariably criticised in two ways. The first is a favoured manoeuvre for establishment media pundits: claim the focus on 26 January is trivial while more pressing Indigenous issues are neglected. This routine is considered most effective if an Indigenous representative can be recruited to do the sowing. It adds conflict and sells copy, and assuages white guilt, but inadvertently, it also reveals the decrepitude of white Australia?€?s hearing.

A tweet by IndigenousX founder Luke Pearson captures the frustrations that blackfullas, and our allies who advocate for the advancement of Aboriginal affairs, feel when reproached with this scintillating logic year after year for daring to speak out about the insult of the rabid flag-waving on 26 January.

Captured, raped, ransomed: the kidnappers preying on Eritrean refugees | Sally Hayden

Fri, 19 Jan 2018 13:07:12 GMT

When Ella and her cousin reached a refugee camp in Sudan, it seemed to herald safety. Instead, it was the start of an all too familiar ordeal


It was right at the moment Ella thought she was safe that she was kidnapped.

The 17-year-old had just entered eastern Sudan?€?s Wad Sherife refugee camp with her teenage cousin. The girls had been walking for days, in a desperate bid to escape compulsory, indefinite military service in their birth country Eritrea, which begins as soon as school ends.

The United Nations has allowed sexual harassment and assault to flourish in its offices around the world, with accusers ignored and perpetrators free to act with impunity, the Guardian has been told.

Dozens of current and former UN employees described a culture of silence across the organisation and a flawed grievance system that is stacked against victims.

Trump-style populism gives 'murderous leaders' free rein, says rights group

Were sex traffickers to blame for the unsolved death of Silvana Beqiraj? | Julie Bindel

Thu, 18 Jan 2018 07:00:07 GMT

Silvana Beqiraj left rural Albania for France, only to be found dead in a canal four years later. Now her family want answers

On a bright autumn day in September 2014, the body of a woman was hauled from the Lunel canal, a stretch of water that crosses a flat, marshy area of Montpellier. French police at first assumed she had drowned. There were no signs of injury, but her nakedness was a cause for concern.

The body was that of Silvana Beqiraj, an Albanian. Silvana was originally from Ndrmenas, a village in the district of Fier, an industrial town 100km from the Albanian capital, Tirana. A divorced mother of two, she had migrated to France four years earlier, leaving her young children with her parents. Another Albanian woman, Bukurie Elmazi, also from Fier, had moved to France with Silvana in 2011, having persuaded her to migrate for ?€?better opportunities?€?, according to Silvana?€?s family. Elmazi identified the body.

This is how democracies die | Steven Levitsky and Daniel Ziblatt

Sun, 21 Jan 2018 07:00:14 GMT

Defending our constitution requires more than outrage

Blatant dictatorship - in the form of fascism, communism, or military rule - has disappeared across much of the world. Military coups and other violent seizures of power are rare. Most countries hold regular elections. Democracies still die, but by different means.

Since the end of the Cold War, most democratic breakdowns have been caused not by generals and soldiers but by elected governments themselves. Like Hugo Chvez in Venezuela, elected leaders have subverted democratic institutions in Georgia, Hungary, Nicaragua, Peru, the Philippines, Poland, Russia, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Ukraine.

Our standard for women has to be about more than what’s legal - it's about what’s right

Sat, 20 Jan 2018 15:00:01 GMT

This is where the hard work gets harder - we need to lose the instinct to dismiss anything that?€?s beyond black and white

If this week was proof of anything, it was that the #MeToo backlash hates nuance. Allegations against actor Aziz Ansari dominated the news cycle, with movement detractors claiming that the woman who came forward shouldn?€?t have done so.

But this movement cannot be simply about what is legal or illegal. Our standard for women - and for what we want for the culture more broadly - has to be bigger than that. This is about what?€?s right. True change isn?€?t going to just be about stopping clearcut rape and harassment - but interrogating the way that men are taught to wear women down to acquiescence rather than looking for an enthusiastic yes.
