There is little to object to in Keir Starmer’s article; there is even less to be inspired by, or to set the blood racing (“We must be bold and end the idea that inequality is inevitable. Let’s get Britain working again”, Opinion). Faced with a government doing more to dismantle democracy than any in living memory and abusing its position to favour friends and supporters, surely this is a time to stand tall and proud for the values that matter.

Oil giants have been edging towards sustainability, albeit cautiously.
“To be fair, the likes of BP and Shell are already trying to make this big pivot and it’s a costly one for them to undertake – particularly given the pandemic and the plunge in the oil price,” Streeter explained. “Now that the oil price is recovering, you would certainly expect them to step up their efforts even more because it does give them more buoyancy to enact that pivot.”
However, Streeter added: “There’s lip service paid to the fact that they have these targets but there isn’t so much being done on the ground really to make sure that we’re making those switches to green forms of energy.”

There have been violent clashes in Bristol, following protests against new laws making their way through Parliament.
The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill is a mammoth piece of legislation that includes major government proposals on crime and justice in England and Wales. One part of it covers changes to protests.
What powers do police have now?
If the police want to place restrictions on a protest, they generally have to show it may result in "serious public disorder, serious damage to property or serious disruption to the life of the community".

'Kill the Bill' protest in Worcester

AROUND 150 people gathered in Cathedral Square today to protest the Government's police, crime, sentencing and courts bill.
Activists of all ages braced the hail stones to 'defend their democractic right to protest' at The Elgar Statue in the city earlier today. 
Although nobody came forward to admit they organised the protest, representatives from Extinction Rebellion, Black Lives Matter and the Socialist Party all attended. 
Elston Gunn, 19, founder of Black Lives Matter Worcestershire said: "I am here because I want a better world for everybody. We must make a stand and not let our voices be silenced. 
"I think this bill is fascist. It has no place in a legitimate working democracy. I am grateful to whoever organised this protest and I think everyone here should be proud that they are fighting for their democratic rights."

Introducing 'The New Climate Activism' Series

DeSmog
It has been a whirlwind year for climate activism. From Greta Thunberg’s explosion onto the public stage at the annual UN climate negotiations in December 2018, to hitherto hidden masses shutting down the streets of London the following summer, climate activism has been rejuvenated.
But how new is this movement? And what has it changed (if anything)? We commissioned a special collection of work to try and probe these issues.
Sophie Yeo looked back on her first encounter with Greta, in the halls of the UN talks in a Polish former mining town. Greta was clearly the next star, she muses, but no-one quite realised how significant her impact would be.

London — 1936. In what we know today as the “Battle of Cable Street,” the Metropolitan Police protected Oswald Mosley’s British Union of Fascists against almost 20,000 anti-fascist protesters, including socialist groups, Irish dockworkers, British Jewry and anarchist and trade unionist groups. That day, 3,000 paramilitary “Blackshirts” marched through a Jewish neighborhood. Mounted police charged at a crowd of peaceful counterprotesters, and many of the arrested reported violent treatment at the hands of the police.
Following the events on Cable Street, the Public Order Act of 1936 forced organizers of large protests to obtain prior police permission and gave the police broad powers to arrest people for “insulting or abusive” speech. The ambiguity of the word “insulting” meant that the Public Order Act could be applied in a range of cases.

Our vision | Greens/EFA

As Greens we stand for a society where everyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation, age, race, or religion, can live a dignified and fulfilling life. As a political force, we put the human rights of all human beings, present and future, at the front and center of all policies we advocate and implement.            
Even though, compared with many areas in the world, the European Union is a desirable place to live, the very possibility for each and every human being to live in dignity is at grave risk. Over the years we have seen the inexorable rise of our ecological impact, and as a consequence, the looming threat of runaway climate crisis, the collapse of biodiversity and the exhaustion of natural resources.

Polly Higgins — The Lawyer Taking on Big Oil's 'Crimes Against Humanity'

Polly Higgins is a woman on the hunt. And you get the sense that, after decades of working towards holding powerful polluters to account, her prey may finally be in sight.
“When you’re looking at any crime, you’re looking at who are your suspects,” she tells me in a soft Scottish accent that belies the hard truths she regularly delivers. “Within a corporate context, you’re looking at CEOs and directors. Within a state context, it is ministers and Heads of State.”
“They’re the ones where final responsibility rests for making the decisions that can adversely impact many hundreds of thousands, if not millions, and indeed — in the case of climate crime — billions of people.”

2 Min Read
LONDON (Reuters) -Police arrested seven people outside the London headquarters of Barclays on Wednesday after climate change activists broke windows to protest the role of the financial sector in climate change.
The activists from the Extinction Rebellion group used hammers to break the windows and then pasted the message “In Case of Climate Emergency Break Glass” on the front of the bank’s building.
The group said the action was part of its “Money Rebellion” against the capitalist system which used “nonviolent direct action, causing damage to property to prevent and draw attention to greater damage”.
It accused the bank of “continued investments in activities that are directly contributing to the climate and ecological emergency”.

Big Polluters Hijack Shipping Talks to Slow Decarbonisation Progress

UN shipping talks stalled last week as slow-moving players, including Saudi Arabia, Brazil and the US, obstructed attempts to decide how the sector should begin to decarbonise.
The negotiations, which took place at the London headquarters of the International Maritime Organisation (IMO), are part of a global process on how to cut shipping’s large and growing emissions.
Setting speed limits on ships and increasing operational efficiency were just two of the 15 proposals on the table for reducing emissions in the short term, meaning before 2023.
But much of the week-long environmental protection committee talks were spent debating the order in which different proposals should eventually be discussed, with little to no progress made on which of them should actually be implemented.

The U.S.-China Trade War Isnt Over Yet
When former U.S. President Donald Trump ascended into the Oval Office in January 2017, he kicked off his presidency by investigating unfair trade practices in China as part of his 'America First' policy. A year later, he imposed hefty tariffs on a wide range of goods from the Asian nation, sparking outrage and retaliatory tariffs from its trading partners. A year ago, Washington and Beijing inked the Phase One Trade Deal whereby Beijing committed to importing an extra $200 billion worth of American goods over the next two years, including

Newham MPs urged to back climate emergency bill

Both MPs welcomed the "passionate" campaigning on the issues, but raised concerns over the assembly.
Ms Brown said: "The climate emergency is a terrible threat to humanity and I take it extremely seriously.  
"The CEE bill at the moment has little chance of coming to a vote in Parliament, and I’m afraid to say I’m not yet convinced the strong action we need against the climate emergency will be secured by changing the democratic system in the way the bill suggests. 
"We can learn from the example of President Biden, who is taking strong action based on his democratic mandate, and work together to secure a Labour government on the basis of a radical green manifesto in 2024."

He said investing in reforestation and sustainable agriculture were "cost effective" ways of tackling the issue.
Banks have come under increasing pressure to step up efforts to help fight climate change.
Just this week, Barclays' London headquarters was the target of a protest staged by climate activist group Extinction Rebellion. Members held placards and broke several windows as they called on the bank to stop financing fossil fuel companies.
Addressing central bankers and finance ministers at the spring meetings of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and World Bank, the duke said the world's natural habitats continue to decline at an "alarming rate".

The entire left should be making the argument that the pandemic is a wake-up call — taking economic, social and health emergencies to crisis point.
Groups like Extinction Rebellion (XR) have raised the profile of the climate emergency, forcing politicians to acknowledge it.

Water scheme opponents: Canterbury Plains environment 'ruined' by farming

STACY SQUIRES/Stuff
Aotearoa Water Action spokesman Peter Richardson says nitrates leaching into Canterbury’s waterways is a public health disaster in the making.
If approved, it is estimated to be the largest pollution consent issued for a 10-year period in New Zealand history, with MHV’s past, present and proposed activities considered.
Freshwater advocate Angus Robson predicted it could raise nitrates by up to 25 times what international studies consider safe, and 10 times the environmental bottom line in new national freshwater regulations.
AWA spokesman Peter Richardson said they were concerned about the lack of public notification, on a consent which could have ramifications for both human health and the environment.
