  • 'Yellow vest' protests: Macron to address nation as crisis roils France
     

    'Yellow vest' protests: Macron to address nation as crisis roils FrancePresident Emmanuel Macron will address the nation on the "yellow vest" crisis on Monday and meet trade unionists and business leaders in search of a way to end the protests that have rocked France. The president will speak to the French people at 8:00 pm (7pm UK time), his Elysee office announced ? his first public comments after four weeks of nationwide anti-government demonstrations which again turned violent on Saturday in Paris and other cities. Government officials have said the 40-year-old centrist would announce "immediate and concrete measures" to respond to protesters? grievances. Calls have multiplied across the political spectrum for drastic action, with former far-right presidential rival Marine Le Pen urging Mr Macron to "recognise society?s suffering and deliver immediate, very strong responses". "It is clear that we underestimated people?s need to make themselves heard," government spokesman Benjamin Griveaux told Europe 1 radio on Sunday. Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said the weeks of unrest were an "economic catastrophe" for France, causing havoc on the roads and putting off shoppers and tourists in the run-up to Christmas. The "yellow vests", clad in the luminous safety jackets carried by law in all French cars, began staging nationwide roadblocks on November 17 in protest against tax hikes raising the price of fuel. Their demonstrations have since snowballed into a mass movement against ex-banker Mr Macron, whom protesters accuse of being out of touch with ordinary people in provincial France. Looting and rioting, blamed mostly on far-left and far-right agitators, has repeatedly broken out in Paris, spreading to Bordeaux, Toulouse, and other cities. Authorities said the property damage caused in the capital on Saturday was far worse than a week earlier, with burnt-out cars and broken glass left strewn across several neighbourhoods. Members of the public view graffiti and broken a window of a Starbucks at Gare Saint Lizare following a fourth week of protests Credit: Getty Some 10,000 protesters had taken to Paris? streets, where about 8,000 police were deployed. Security forces launched a massive operation in a bid to minimise the unrest, detaining more than 1,000 people and mobilising armoured cars in Paris for the first time. Elected in May 2017 on a promise to revitalise the sluggish French economy, Mr Macron had previously vowed not to be swayed by mass protests like his predecessors. But he announced a climbdown on the hated fuel tax rise last week, and further concessions appear to be on the cards. So far, Mr Macron has refused to back down on another policy that is deeply unpopular among the "yellow vests": his decision to scrap a tax on assets for France?s richest. Yellow vest protesters clash with police in Paris, in pictures Labour Minister Muriel Penicaud on Sunday also rejected the idea of an increase in the minimum wage ? a demand from many protesters who say they are barely scraping by. "We know that destroys jobs," Ms Penicaud said. "If we raise all salaries automatically, many businesses would just go bust ? or they would have to raise their prices, and no one would pay for their services." With an estimated 136,000 people taking part nationwide last weekend, the protests have shown little sign of easing since they began. The protesters overwhelmingly hail from rural and small-town France but have a range of different goals ? from lower taxes to Macron?s resignation ? making his attempted negotiations with them all the more difficult.

    U.S. arrests religious leaders, activists at border protestMore than 400 demonstrators, many leaders of churches, mosques, synagogues and indigenous communities, sought a halt to detention and deportation of migrants and for the United States to welcome the caravan that arrived in Tijuana, Mexico in November. Singing and praying, religious leaders moved forward in lines of four to six, some wearing T-shirts reading, "Love Knows No Borders." They were handcuffed and led away by federal agents upon entering a restricted area in front of the fence. "As a Quaker who believes in our shared humanity...We?re calling on the U.S. to respect the rights of migrants," said Joyce Ajlouny, general secretary of the American Friends Service Committee, which has run a week of actions to back migrants.

  • Grace Millane: Man accused over backpacker murder appears in court as PM apologises on behalf of New Zealand for her death
     

    Grace Millane: Man accused over backpacker murder appears in court as PM apologises on behalf of New Zealand for her deathThe man accused of killing British backpacker Grace Millane was jeered as he appeared in a packed Auckland court on Monday. Ms Millane, 22, died while travelling in New Zealand and her body was found in bushland on Sunday afternoon, about 30 feet from a highway outside the New Zealand city. The 26-year-old accused, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, appeared in a blue boiler suit as he attended Auckland's District Court on Monday morning. Ms Millane, from Essex, was last seen alive entering the CityLife Hotel with the man last Saturday at 9.41pm. The defendant was listed on a charge sheet as residing at the hotel on Queen Street in central Auckland. In his opening remarks Judge Evangelos Thomas addressed members of Millane's family, some of whom were in attendance. Her father, David Millane, arrived in New Zealand last Friday following his daughter's disappearance. ?Your grief must be desperate,? Judge Thomas told the family in court, where every seat was taken by the public and the international and local media. ?All of us hope that justice for Grace is fair and swift and ultimately brings you some peace.?  As the defendant was led out of the court, a man at the back of the court yelled out ?scumbag?. Meanwhile, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern became became visibly upset as she apologised to Ms Millane's family at her weekly post-cabinet news conference.  "On behalf of New Zealand, I want to apologise to Grace's family," Ms Ardern told a weekly news conference in parliament. Ms Ardern said she could not imagine the grief that her family would be going through, according to Radio New Zealand.  ?Your daughter should have been safe here and she wasn't and I'm sorry for that.? Ms Ardern told the family through police that the government would offer any assistance it could. Judge Evangelos Thomas speaks as a man accused of Grace Millane's murder appears in court in Auckland Credit: Getty Judge Thomas rejected an application from the accused's lawyer for his client's name to be suppressed based on fair trial rights. However, the decision was immediately appealed, meaning the accused's name will not be released for at least 20 working days until the appeal is determined. The accused looked at the judge for most of the 90 minutes he was in court, nodding that he understood when spoken to, his eyes only occasionally flicking towards the cameras on the other side of the court. The defendant's next appearance will be in the High Court on January 23. Accused 'was estranged from family' The accused was reportedly estranged from his family after his parents separated, according to his grandfather.  NZ media organisation Stuff reported that the grandfather, who said he'd helped raise him for a period after his parents separated, was struggling to come to terms with what his grandson had been accused of.  ?He was a nice kid, but he sort of fell out with everybody, which is what happens with broken-up marriages.?  He was worried about how the allegations would affect the wider family but declined to comment further.  A female relative of the accused told Stuff he'd spent time living in Australia, where his mother lived, but she was unaware he'd returned.  His paternal grandmother told Stuff that while living in Australia the man fathered a daughter but was no longer in a relationship with the mother.  Stuff said the accused's father hadn't spoken to his son for two years, citing: ?A difference in opinion on life.? Emotional tributes from family Police have yet to reveal how the pair met or the possible motive for the alleged murder. Security footage at the hotel, along with a scene investigation at a room there, confirmed that Ms Millane was dead.   Detective Inspector Scott Beard said the body was found near Scenic Drive, which leads through the Waitakere Ranges, a popular parkland west of Auckland. Grace Millane was on a year-long round-the-world trip ?This brings the search for Grace to an end,? said Detective Beard, who was visibly emotional delivering the news of the discovery. ?It is an unbearable time for the Millane family and our hearts go out to them.? Ms Millane's family have described her as ?lovely, outgoing, fun-loving and family-orientated?. Her brother Declan paid public tribute on social media with a series of photographs of Ms Millane smiling, celebrating, graduating and, as a little girl, hugging her sibling. He also wrote the lyrics to the song "you are my sunshine, my only sunshine" underneath pictures of the pair together.   View this post on Instagram ????You are my sunshine, my only sunshine You make me happy when skies are gray You'll never know, dear, how much I love you Please don't take my sunshine away A post shared by Declan Millane (@declan_millane) on Dec 9, 2018 at 2:16am PST Ms Millane, who completed a degree in advertising and marketing at Lincoln University, was on a yearlong trip and arrived in New Zealand on November 20 after a four-week group tour to Peru. Her family raised concerns after she failed to make contact for several days, including on her 22nd birthday last Sunday. Police received a missing person report on Wednesday and commenced a major search and public campaign that saw dozens of calls made to a helpline. David Millane, Grace?s father, arrived in New Zealand on Friday morning and gave a press conference with police, issuing a moving appeal for help. He was joined on the weekend by another family member. Tributes to Grace Millane are left at the roundabout in Titirangi, at the start of Scenic Drive  in Auckland Credit: Getty Mr Millane, a property developer, said Ms Millane had typically ?bombarded? the family with messages and photographs during her travels but suddenly went silent after last Saturday. "Grace is a lovely, outgoing, fun-loving, family-orientated daughter," he said. "Grace has never been out of contact for this amount of time. She's usually in daily contact with either her mother, myself, her two brothers or members of the family on social media. "We are all extremely upset and it's very difficult at this time to fully describe the range of emotions we are going through." Police took the 26-year-old man into custody several days ago and have charged him with murder.  Detective Inspector Scott Beard speaks at the scene where the body of British tourist Grace Millane was found Credit: Photo by Hannah Peters/Getty Images Detective Beard said the investigation will continue and searches were still underway at the hotel. He would not comment on whether the pair met on the dating app Tinder. "The focus now is to piece together exactly what happened to a young woman who came to New Zealand on her [overseas experience]," he said. Appeal for information Ms Millane?s body was allegedly transported to the parkland in a red Toyota Corolla hatchback that was rented from a central Auckland firm last Sunday. Police released two photos of the car, which was found in the central North Island town of Taupo, and were appealing for anyone who had seen the vehicle on the morning of Monday, December 3, near the area where the body was found. Expressing condolences to Mr Millane and the family, Detective Beard said: "Any father in this situation is going to struggle. We are putting a lot of support around him. I feel for him, I have a daughter in her twenties.? A 2016 red Toyota Corolla hire car that police are analysing as part of a probe into the death of Grace Millane Credit: PA The case has sent shockwaves across New Zealand, where people expressed outrage and some on social media described the case as a ?national shame?. It has also raised concerns about violence towards women in the country. Justin Lester, the mayor of Wellington, the capital, said the case was a "horrible and tragic nightmare". "Our girls should be safe to travel and go out and our men should be looking after and protecting them, not causing harm," he said on Twitter.
