Turnout down in second French protest against Macron's labour reforms

Turnout down in second French protest against Macron's labour reforms Protesters demonstrated Thursday against an imminent overhaul of France's labour laws but in far lower numbers than organisers hoped, just days before President Emmanuel Macron's flagship reforms enter the statute books. The interior ministry estimated the crowds at 132,000 across France, just over half the numbers who took part last week in the first major street protests organised by trade unions since Macron was elected in May. The 39-year-old centrist president is certain to welcome Thursday's lower turnout, but he will face more -- and potentially larger -- protests on Saturday called by the hard-left political party France Unbowed.


Greenpeace boards ship in bid to halt delivery of UK-bound VW diesel cars

Greenpeace boards ship in bid to halt delivery of UK-bound VW diesel cars By Costas Pitas LONDON (Reuters) - Greenpeace activists boarded a ship arriving in Britain on Thursday to stop the delivery of more than 1,000 Volkswagen cars from Germany while others sought to immobilise vehicles at a port in anti-diesel protests. VW admitted cheating diesel emissions tests in 2015, triggering political and consumer pressure that has caused a slump in sales of diesel cars in major markets, with governments announcing plans to ban vehicles powered by conventional combustion engines. Greenpeace said its volunteers had boarded the ship in the Thames Estuary in an attempt to stop it unloading at the port of Sheerness in the southeast of England.

Turkey, Iran and Iraq warn of 'counter-measures' against Kurd vote

Turkey, Iran and Iraq warn of 'counter-measures' against Kurd vote Turkey, Iran and Iraq on Thursday urged Iraq's Kurdistan region to abandon a planned referendum on independence, threatening unspecified "counter-measures" if it goes ahead with the vote. The foreign ministers of Turkey, Iran and Iraq held a rare trilateral meeting Wednesday in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, days ahead of the non-binding September 25 referendum. Ankara and Tehran fear independence for the Kurds of northern Iraq would embolden their own Kurdish minorities, and Baghdad has bitterly opposed the plebiscite.


Richard Branson slams Donald Trump after hurricanes: 'Whole world knows climate change is real'

Richard Branson slams Donald Trump after hurricanes: 'Whole world knows climate change is real' Virgin boss Richard Branson has hit out at Donald Trump after Hurricane Irma partially destroyed his home on the British Virgin Islands. Donald Trump, who has previously denied climate change, has planned to withdraw from the Paris climate change agreement, which aims to reduce the impact of global warming on Earth. Mr Branson criticised the President's stance in an interview on CNN, where he was asked about the impact of climate change on hurricanes. Richard Branson on Necker Island Credit: Virgin.com/Virgin.com "Look, you can never be 100 per cent sure about links" he replied, "but the scientists have said the storms are going to get more and more and more intense and more and more often." He continued: "We've had four storms within a month, all far greater than have ever, ever, ever happened in history. "Sadly, I think this is the start of things to come." Hitting out at Donald Trump, he continued:"Look, climate change is real. Ninety-nine per cent of scientists know it's real. "The whole world knows it's real except for maybe one person in the White House." Richard Branson launches aid relief campaign for the British Virgin Islands 02:33 The British billionaire and adventurer took refuge in the wine cellar of his home on his private island while it suffered a direct hit from the Category 5 Hurricane Irma. "As you can see from the photos, much of the buildings and vegetation on Necker has been destroyed or badly damaged," Sir Richard wrote from Puerto Rico, where he was mobilising aid efforts  for the British Virgin Islands and wider Caribbean. "We felt the full force of the strongest hurricane ever in the Atlantic Ocean. But we are very fortunate to have a strong cellar built into Necker’s Great House and were very lucky all of our teams who stayed on Island during the storm are safe and well." He has now called for a "Marshall Plan" to rebuild the British Virgin Islands in the wake of the devastation of Hurricane Irma and fears of further damage by Hurricane Maria.
