White Island eruption: 'too unsafe' to retrieve bodies as volcanic activity rises

Wed, 11 Dec 2019 06:28:10 GMT

Authorities vow to return to recover eight bodies but ?€?significant increase?€? in volcanic activity leads to delays

New Zealand police have vowed to return to White Island as soon as possible to retrieve the bodies of eight tourists who died there, as the first Australian victims of the fatal volcanic eruption were named.

Wednesday dawned clear and calm in Whakat?ne, but still police efforts to reach the island were hampered after volcanic activity substantially increased, making it too dangerous for disaster victim identification officers to land.

Foreign experts quit Hong Kong police brutality inquiry over lack of powers

Wed, 11 Dec 2019 01:59:45 GMT

Panel recruited to ensure objectivity cite failure to agree formal process with police complaints commission

A panel of foreign experts overseeing an investigation into allegations of excessive force used by the Hong Kong police force has said it is stepping down, further calling into question the probe.

For months anti-government protesters have been demanding an independent investigation into allegations of police brutality in response to the demonstrations. The government has repeatedly said an independent inquiry is unnecessary and that the existing police watchdog, the Independent Police Complaints Council (IPCC), should complete its review first.

'Bhopal’s tragedy has not stopped': the urban disaster still claiming lives 35 years on

Sun, 08 Dec 2019 09:00:36 GMT

The Union Carbide factory explosion remains the world?€?s worst industrial accident - but as its dreadful legacy becomes increasingly apparent, victims are still waiting for justice

The residents of JP Nagar have no way to escape their ghosts. This ramshackle neighbourhood, on the outskirts of the Indian city of Bhopal, stands just metres away from the chemical factory which exploded just after midnight on 2 December 1984 and seeped poison into their lives forever. The blackened ruins of the Union Carbide plant still loom untouched behind the factory walls.

Killer heat: US cities' plans for coming heatwaves fail to protect vulnerable

Fri, 06 Dec 2019 10:30:39 GMT

Exclusive: With heatwaves predicted to worsen dramatically over the next 30 years, many big US cities are failing to fully plan to protect those most vulnerable to extreme heat

When heatwaves hammered US cities this summer, one of the hottest in recorded history, some city governments had plans in place to protect their most at-risk residents.

Philadelphia?€?s plan sent homeless outreach teams to distribute water and bring people to cooling centers. Austin?€?s plan suspended electricity shutoffs for low-income or fixed-income customers. Chicago?€?s plan dispatched building inspectors to monitor shelters and other buildings without air conditioning.

'People came to make noise': Porto's abandoned mall turned underground music hub

Thu, 05 Dec 2019 07:00:06 GMT

Musicians say Porto?€?s DIY studio complex Stop is a crucial arts space in a city dominated by tourism, but authorities say it?€?s unsafe and must close

All photographs by Mark Scholes

A mile east of the Luís I Bridge in the middle of a residential neighbourhood in Porto, Portugal?€?s second city, sits a bleak and decaying building.

Initially a three-storey car park, then a thriving shopping centre, the building has more recently suffered from years of neglect. Its walls are sprayed with graffiti and plastered with stickers, and the windows are blacked out.

The Guardian view on general election 2019: A fleeting chance to stop Boris Johnson in his tracks | Editorial

Tue, 10 Dec 2019 19:13:56 GMT

The mood may be one of despair, but this election is critical to the country?€?s future. The best hope lies with Labour, despite its flaws

Britain has not faced a more critical election in decades than the one it faces on Thursday. The country?€?s future direction, its place in the world and even its territorial integrity are all at stake, primarily because this is a decisive election for Brexit. The choice is stark. The next prime minister is going to be either Boris Johnson, who is focused on ?€?getting Brexit done?€? whatever the consequences, or Jeremy Corbyn, who with a Labour-led government will try to remodel society with a programme of nationalisation and public spending.

EU's soaring climate rhetoric not always matched by action

Wed, 11 Dec 2019 09:31:13 GMT

The bloc considers itself international leader on environment, but progress has been stunted

The European Union considers itself as a leader on the environment and not without cause: policymaking in Brussels moved ahead of the international consensus in the 2000s.

But the soaring rhetoric has not always been matched by structural changes in the way European economies work and citizens live their lives.

It’s time to act against the oil companies causing death and destruction | John Sentamu

Tue, 10 Dec 2019 12:58:14 GMT

Repentance, reparation and remedy for the terrible damage done to the people of Bayelsa state in Nigeria is long overdue

- John Sentamu is the archbishop of York

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights begins: ?€?All human beings ?€? should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.?€? It is now widely acknowledged that human rights cannot be enjoyed without a safe, clean and healthy environment. The right to a healthy environment is enshrined in more than 100 constitutions all over the world because human and environmental rights are intertwined.

However, despite the endorsement of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, oil companies exploiting irreplaceable resources in the Niger Delta are callously flouting fundamental human rights. That is the conclusion I have been forced to draw from my work as chair of the Bayelsa State Oil and Environmental Commission (BSOEC).

Wed, 11 Dec 2019 06:00:30 GMT

Humanitarian agencies say Rohingya people displaced by violence in Rakhine state are forced to live in squalid conditions

The UK has broken ranks with the UN and will keep funding ?€?closed?€? Rohingya camps inside Myanmar despite fears that doing so may entrench ?€?apartheid-like?€? conditions in the country, the Guardian has learned.

Internal briefing documents as well as interviews with UN and humanitarian agency officials in Myanmar showed the British government was maintaining a policy of providing aid and other support to displaced people living in camps in Myanmar?€?s Rakhine state that have been slated for closure since 2017.

Tue, 10 Dec 2019 17:45:15 GMT

Premier League leaders urged to join fight for better working conditions as they prepare for Fifa Club World Cup match

As Liverpool fans stream into Qatar to watch the Fifa Club World Cup next week, it will be easy to forget the thousands of workers from the poorest countries in the region who have toiled for years to construct its glittering buildings.

When they take their seats at the Khalifa International Stadium, where Liverpool will play their semi-final match, they may not realise that scores of workers who refurbished the stadium were housed in filthy, overcrowded accommodation with an ever-present stench of raw sewage.

Tue, 10 Dec 2019 07:00:02 GMT

The devastating disease can?€?t be stopped unless more protection is provided for patients and health workers

Entering the city of Goma as night fell, I saw the red lava glowing atop nearby Mount Nyiragongo - an ominous reminder of the insecurity hovering over the Democratic Republic of the Congo?€?s volatile east.

But a manmade - not natural - terror is keeping health workers in DRC awake tonight.

Mon, 09 Dec 2019 07:00:02 GMT

Rights groups condemn hanging of Mooketsi Kgosibodiba and call on president to bring country into line with the rest of Africa

The new president of Botswana is facing pressure to abolish the country?€?s death penalty after last week?€?s surprise execution of a 44-year-old man for murder.

When I was growing up volcanic activity on Whakaari was continuous - yesterday was different

Tue, 10 Dec 2019 00:13:59 GMT

White Island?€?s eruption is a reminder that we are not nature?€?s master, but at its whim

At 2.11pm yesterday, as the Whakaari eruption was happening, I was out mowing my lawns. From my home at Te Kaha, a tiny settlement on the North Island?€?s east coast, you can make out the volcano?€?s sunken crater. The 300-metre dust cliffs frame the northern and southern edges, and in the centre is an east-facing pit where ancient birders and old sulphur miners once did their work.

On Monday the only workers and visitors on island were tour operators and tourists, several whom never made it back from yesterday?€?s destruction.

US lies and deception spelled out in Afghanistan papers' shocking detail

Mon, 09 Dec 2019 17:10:53 GMT

The tranche of documents show that in trying to paint the best pictures, those involved delivered the worst

During the Vietnam war, the daily US military briefings were known to journalists as the Five O?€? Clock Follies, described by one of the AP reporters who attended them as ?€?the longest-playing tragicomedy in south-east Asia?€?s theatre of the absurd?€?.

The Pentagon Papers, the Department of Defense?€?s secret history of that war, leaked by Daniel Ellsberg in 1971, only underlined the level of that deception under subsequent US presidents.

White Island volcano: retrieving bodies is an 'absolute imperative' - video

Wed, 11 Dec 2019 06:26:57 GMT

Sarah Stuart-Black at New Zealand's civil defence ministry says recovering the bodies of those killed on Whakaari/White Island is 'an absolute imperative'. John Tims of New Zealand police says the resources are standing by to go back to the island 'as soon as we are confident there are no risks'. Conditions on New Zealand?€?s Whakaari/White Island have worsened, hampering the retrieval of those killed in Monday's volcanic explosion. Volcanologist Graham Leonard says volcanic activity has increased at the site and that there is a risk of another eruption like Monday?€?s. Leonard also says it would be challenging for rescuers to breath, see or walk on the island given the current activity.
