Fri, 22 Jun 2018 22:26:31 GMT

President extended the ?€?national emergency?€? for one year in an executive order, re-authorizing economic restrictions

Donald Trump has declared that North Korea still poses an ?€?extraordinary threat?€? to the United States, just days after saying that the country?€?s nuclear program no longer constituted a danger.

In an executive order on Friday, the president extended for one year the so-called ?€?national emergency?€? with respect to the nuclear-armed nation, re-authorizing economic restrictions against it.

Demagogues and charlatans are stoking fear, says Joe Biden

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 12:47:43 GMT

Former US vice-president compares situation to 1930s as migration convulses politics

The former US vice-president Joe Biden has accused ?€?demagogues and charlatans?€? of stirring up voters?€? fears just as they did in the 1930s as the issue of migration convulses politics on both sides of the Atlantic.

Biden, seen as a potential Democratic party candidate against Donald Trump in 2020, did not mention the US president by name but linked his anti-immigrant drive and that of European populists and the far right to pre-war fascists who were willing to create scapegoats to retain their grip on power.

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 19:18:21 GMT
  • Teenager Cedella Roman was visiting from France
  • Evening run along beach led to two-week detention nightmare

It started as a leisurely jog along a Canadian beach on a cool spring evening. But it turned into a two-week nightmare after Cedella Roman accidentally veered across the US border and was seized by US border patrol agents.

The French citizen was visiting her mother and studying English, when the family headed to White Rock, about an hour?€?s drive from Vancouver in May.

Athens hails agreement to give country access to markets in August after final bailout

Greece?€?s government has said the country is ?€?turning a page?€? after eurozone member states reached an agreement on the final elements of a plan to make its massive debt pile more manageable, ending an eight-year bailout programme.

?€?I have to say the Greek government is happy with this deal,?€? the finance minister, Euclid Tsakalotos, said on Friday. ?€?But at the same time, this government will not forget what the Greek people went through in the past eight years.?€?

Trump threatens car tariffs after EU sets up £2.5bn of levies on US

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 16:02:34 GMT

Bourbon whiskey, Levi?€?s and Harley-Davidson on list as EU measures comes into force

Donald Trump has threatened to widen the mounting trade dispute between US and the EU by imposing tariffs on European cars, after Brussels made good on its threat of retaliatory levies on American products including bourbon whiskey, Levi?€?s jeans and Harley-Davidson motorbikes.

Raising the stakes in the tit-for-tat exchange of import tariffs threatening to spark a global trade war, the US president tweeted in response to the EU tariffs which came into effect late on Thursday: ?€?If these Tariffs and Barriers are not soon broken down and removed, we will be placing a 20% Tariff on all of their cars coming into the U.S. Build them here!?€?

Monsignor Carlo Alberto Capella tells court he developed ?€?morbid?€? desire

A Catholic priest who worked as a diplomat at the Vatican?€?s embassy in Washington has admitted at the start of his trial that he had possessed images of child sexual abuse while based in the US.

Monsignor Carlo Alberto Capella, who was arrested in the Vatican in April after he had been recalled, told the court in the Vatican that he had developed a ?€?morbid?€? desire after he arrived in the US to take up the diplomatic post in 2016. ?€?It was never part of my priestly life before,?€? he told the court, adding that he was unhappy at the embassy in Washington.

'Xenophobic and racist': Elena Ferrante warns of danger to Italy from Matteo Salvini

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 15:23:25 GMT

In her Guardian column, author of the bestselling Neapolitan novels makes rare intervention in politics to voice fears of interior minister?€?s ?€?racist fists?€?

The Italian novelist Elena Ferrante has made a rare foray into the political arena, warning of the dangers of underestimating the ?€?xenophobic and racist?€? new interior minister Matteo Salvini who heads up Italy?€?s far-right League party.

Writing in her column for the Guardian?€?s Weekend magazine, the reclusive Ferrante, who has kept her identity hidden, said she had never been politically active, and while she has ?€?feared for the fate of democracy?€? in Italy, she has more often ?€?thought our worries have been deliberately exaggerated?€?.

UN condemns Trump administration for exacerbating US poverty levels

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 16:01:33 GMT

In damning report, UN?€?s poverty monitor hit back at criticisms by Nikki Haley, saying government policies would punish millions of low-income Americans

The Trump administration has been castigated at the United Nations in Geneva for consciously exacerbating levels of inequality in America that are already the most extreme in the western world.

The excoriating report on the state of the US nation was delivered to a packed hearing of the human rights council on Friday by the UN?€?s monitor on extreme poverty, Philip Alston. In what is now turning into a battle of words between the US government and international observers, Alston hit back at criticisms that had been leveled at him the previous day by Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the UN.

Oil output to rise by 1m barrels a day as Opec reaches compromise

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 15:45:24 GMT

Delegates at Vienna meeting say talks were fraught - Brent crude rises 2%

Major oil producers have agreed to pump more crude to help reduce prices and prevent a supply shortage, in a significant reversal of Opec?€?s strategy of curbing output over the past 18 months.

After a fraught meeting in Vienna in which Iran was initially at odds with a Saudi-led drive to boost production, ministers settled on a target they said would increase output by around 1m barrels per day (bpd).

Supreme court bans police access to phone records without a warrant

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 17:52:19 GMT

Court bars police from accessing call listings and location without a warrant, in ?€?most consequential privacy ruling in a generation?€?

A US supreme court ruling issued Friday barred police from accessing cellphone records such as call listings and location data without first obtaining a search warrant, in a landmark decision in favor of privacy protections.

Advocates hailed the 5-4 ruling as a victory for personal privacy rights in an age when digital technology and the widespread use of mobile devices could create easy paths for law enforcement or other state bodies into the most intimate corners of private life.

Rule of law 'virtually absent' in Venezuela, UN report says

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 15:13:15 GMT
  • Government forces carry out killings with impunity
  • ?€?Credible, shocking?€? reports of unlawful killings of young men

Government security forces in Venezuela carry out unjustified killings without any apparent consequences, as the rule of law is ?€?virtually absent?€? in the country, according to a new report by the United Nations.

The UN human rights office called on the government to bring perpetrators to justice and said it was sending its report to the international criminal court (ICC), whose prosecutor opened a preliminary investigation in February.

Boris Becker insists diplomatic passport is genuine

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 18:35:25 GMT

Former tennis star says he received document from Central African Republic?€?s ambassador

Former world No 1 tennis player Boris Becker has insisted he has a genuine diplomatic passport from the Central African Republic after officials dismissed it as a fake.

The retired German tennis star, who claims his role as an attache to the EU gives him diplomatic immunity from bankruptcy proceedings in the UK, told the BBC?€?s Andrew Marr Show: ?€?I have received this passport from the ambassador. I have spoken to the president on many occasions. It was an official inauguration. I believe the documents they are giving me must be right.?€?

Hidden City: will giving residents land rights transform a Buenos Aires slum?

Tue, 19 Jun 2018 10:00:09 GMT

Argentina?€?s president once talked of forcing slums out of the city - now he wants to deliver residents the deeds to their land. But will it help?

?€?It was really bad in there - I mean, it?€?s literally a ruin,?€? says Romina Vargas of Argentina?€?s most famous abandoned building, where she once lived. ?€?There was lots of contaminated water on the lower floors, there were no sewers, and kids would come and take drugs inside. It?€?s good that it?€?s coming down.?€?

Built in the 1930s and later championed by president Juan Domingo Pern, the 14-storey building in south-west Buenos Aires was intended to be the largest hospital in Latin America; a cornerstone of Pern?€?s grand populist vision for Argentina. But construction stopped abruptly in 1955 with a military coup. The abandoned colossus at the edge of the capital became known as the White Elephant.

The tile hunter of Barcelona: preserving a unique form of local art - in pictures

Tue, 19 Jun 2018 07:00:05 GMT

Joel Cnovas uses Instagram to document his passion for rescuing discarded tiles as part of his one-man mission to salvage a century of Catalan heritage

Joel Cnovas was sipping a beer on a patio in Barcelona when a piece of rubbish caught his eye. A section of hydraulic cement tile - the once-ubiquitous flooring material used in homes around the city for a century or so from the mid-1800s - had been discarded during a home renovation.

Cnovas picked up the tile, and a passion was born. Spotting tiles in dumpsters throughout Barcelona, Cnovas soon began to document his discoveries on Instagram as The Tile Hunter (@i_rescue_tiles).

Anti-pollution skincare: can a cream really help you 'face the city'?

Fri, 15 Jun 2018 06:00:08 GMT

The booming market for products for ?€?urban skin?€? reflects anxieties about the health impacts of living in cities - but is it all just a marketing gimmick?

Fiona Westerhout talks about her skin as though she is giving directions in a familiar neighbourhood: oily around the T-zone, dry cheeks, sensitive with the occasional breakout.

Westerhout, 29, had just started blogging about skincare when she and her partner moved from Perth in Western Australia to Shanghai in May 2016. There she found a new cause for skincare concern: pollution.

Why Trump's immigration crackdown won't stem flow of Central Americans

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 06:00:21 GMT

The majority of migrants from a trio of countries are fleeing grinding poverty or the rampant gang and drug-related violence

?€?There are those who migrate to El Norte because of poverty. There are those who migrate to reunite with family members. And there are those ?€? who don?€?t migrate. They flee,?€? wrote Salvadoran journalist scar Martnez in his 2010 book about the perilous pilgrimage that thousands of Central Americans make to the United States each year.

Africa is finally uniting: now we need good politics | Paul Kagame

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 14:57:13 GMT

With a free trade agreement signed, a new era of prosperity beckons for the African continent

In Africa, our biggest threats are also opportunities. By 2035, 450 million Africans will have joined the working age population, more than the rest of the world combined in that time. They will power our economies forward, as long as there are jobs they have the knowledge to perform.

But our schools and universities have not kept pace with technology. Over half of all jobseekers have few or no skills, while 41% have qualifications but no skills for the jobs available. The gap is wider still in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Trump policy of detaining children 'may amount to torture', UN says - as it happened

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 22:08:39 GMT

Guardian correspondents follow all the developments on both sides of the border as president points finger at Democrats

We are ending our live coverage of migrant family separations at the border and the fallout from Trump?€?s recent policy changes. Thanks for following along. Here are some key developments of the day and dispatches from Guardian reporters on both sides of the border.

US lawmakers visited holding facilities for immigrant children across the country on Friday - but they have been unable to speak with detained youth.

Three Democratic senators went to a holding facility on the Texas border near El Paso that appears to be occupied by roughly 250 teenage boys, mostly from Central America, according to the AP. A contractor that operates the shelter reportedly briefed senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich of New Mexico and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut, but would not let them enter holding areas or speak with detained minors.

I know for a FACT that @FLOTUS has been a strong voice of compassion for migrant children. The vicious treatment of her over the last day is a reminder of how Trump Derangement Syndrome,where hatred for him justifies everything,has become an epidemic. Totally lunacy everywhere!!!

STOP! The Administration needs to take a time out ... If the Administration wants to have a rational dialogue about fixing our immigration system, I am happy to do that, but making up immigration policy on the fly is just wrong. We will fight this in every way we can.

"The thought that this immoral policy would actually come to Concord California ?€? We?€?ll do everything in our power to stop it," says @RepDeSaulnier of a proposed facility for nearly 50,000 immigrants in Concord, Calif. #immigration #ImmigrantChildren

Sheep exporter's licence cancellation a federal decision, says WA premier

Sat, 23 Jun 2018 05:39:43 GMT

Mark McGowan says that if the farming lobby has any concerns, it should take this up with Canberra

The Western Australia premier, Mark McGowan, says farmers in the state concerned about the decision to suspend the licence of Australia?€?s largest sheep exporter should ?€?take it up with the federal government?€?.

The federal agriculture department announced on Friday it had suspended the live export licence of Perth-based Emanuel Exports pending the outcome of a review into the company?€?s response to a show cause notice, issued as part of a broader investigation into its animal welfare record.

Support proves key for teachers and children alike in Kenya’s largest slum

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 13:00:23 GMT

Efforts to improve the training and resources available to childminders in Nairobi?€?s Kibera settlement are bearing fruit - to the benefit of all concerned

Three-year-old Joy and her sister Lavine, four, are surrounded by kitchen pots, soft toys and an old wellington boot. It?€?s mid-morning at Kidogo?€?s nursery and preschool, and the sisters are playing in the dramatic centre, a place set aside for children to invent their own games. Each corner of the room is dedicated to a different activity: music, stories, art or a quiet space for reading.

The centre is one of the few quality childcare facilities in Kibera, an overcrowded informal settlement in Nairobi that houses 170,070 people, according to a 2009 national census (although other estimates have put the number significantly higher). Most centres are found in cramped rooms or homes, with one woman responsible for 20 or so children. Ventilation is poor and there are reports of babies being given sleeping pills to knock them out for the day, or children being locked in dark rooms. There?€?s rarely space to play.

As a report highlights the ruinous impact of denying abortion, two medics offer opposing views on the role of personal belief

A rise in the number of healthcare providers who refuse to provide abortion services based on their personal beliefs is having a devastating impact on women and girls around the world, a new study has claimed.

Over the past two decades, at least 30 countries - including, most recently, Ireland, Chile and Argentina - have taken steps to improve access to abortion through legislative changes.

Rise of xenophobia is fanning immigration flames in EU and US | Simon Tisdall

Fri, 22 Jun 2018 11:56:02 GMT

Populists are exploiting citizens?€? fears while ignoring root causes of migration crises

Like a timebomb waiting to go off, Europe?€?s smouldering immigration problem exploded into a full-blown crisis last week. The US experienced a similar delayed upheaval, after the human consequences of Donald Trump?€?s ?€?zero tolerance?€? border policy became too painful to ignore. The two events are closely linked, the product of systemic international failings.

The longstanding inability of governments to cope with challenges posed by the increased flows of refugees, asylum seekers and economic migrants is common to both sides of the Atlantic. The ensuing vacuum has been filled by opportunists such as Trump, maverick fringe parties, andrightwing zealots such as Italy?€?s new interior minister, Matteo Salvini, and the US attorney general, Jeff Sessions.

Questions hang over Nato stability as summit draws closer

Nato secretary-general Jens Stoltenberg attempts to defeat scepticism before Trump visit

Sceptism greeted the Nato secretary-general when he claimed the transatlantic bond that glues Nato together is not weakening but actually strengthening.

The sentiment was expressed at Lancaster House in London where Jens Stoltenberg made the remark to an audience of mainly defence and foreign policy specialists. And the scepticism would almost certainly be shared in capitals across Europe.

Peace demonstrations in the US October 26-28 2007
29.10 - 2007

Large number of US citizens demonstrated against the war in Iraq (and the possible war in Iran) during this October weekend. Massive turnout in Boston and San Fransisco, and also in Chicago, LA and DC people took to the streets.
The message was: NO more war in Iraq! NO to a war with Iran!
