    France bans chokehold arrest as anger mounts over police brutality

    Floyd’s fatal arrest magnified attention on the 2016 death in French police custody of Adama Traoré, a 24-year-old black man, and renewed controversy over claims of racism and brutality within the force.

    France’s police watchdog said it received almost 1,500 complaints against officers last year – half of them for alleged violence.

    After a string of protests in recent days, the interior minister Christophe Castaner announced on Monday the chokehold method “will be abandoned”.

    “It will no longer be taught in police and gendarmerie schools. It is a method that has its dangers,” he told a press conference.
    He added there would be “zero tolerance” for racism in law enforcement and officers strongly suspected of racism would be suspended.

    Castaner said too many officers “have failed in their republican duty” in recent weeks, with several instances of racist and discriminatory remarks revealed. “It is not enough to condemn it,” said Castaner. “We have to track it down and combat it.”

    The former prime minister Manuel Valls said the police were “not racist” but racism, antisemitism and violence ran through society and the security forces “unfortunately do not escape these phenomena”.

    Racism on the rise in Germany

    As Black Lives Matter protests persist worldwide, a German study reveals that discrimination against people based on their ethnic origin has increased. The report warns of serious consequences for society.

    Ever since the violent death of an African-American man, George Floyd, at the hands of police two weeks ago, a wave of protests has been rolling across the US.

    Many people in Germany were also shocked by footage in which he is seen in mortal agony while being subjected to brutal mistreatment for almost nine minutes. Tens of thousands of people across the country took to the streets this past weekend to protest against racism, despite restrictions imposed to stem the coronavirus pandemic,

    Amid considerable media attention, they also decried racial discrimination in Germany. For the image of German society, too, has repeatedly been blemished by everyday racism, xenophobic riots and right-wing extremist attacks like those carried out by the National Socialist Underground (NSU).

    Almost 1,200 complaints of racism

    Recent statistics back up the protesters' criticism and confirm a dismal trend: Racial discrimination has increased significantly in Germany.

    According to the 2019 annual report presented Tuesday by the German Federal Anti-Discrimination Agency (ADS), the number of such cases reported in Germany rose by almost 10% to 1,176. They make up 33% of the cases dealt with by the agency. That is the largest share, and not for the first time: In 2016, it was already 25%. Since 2015, when 545 reported cases were listed, the number has more than doubled.

    Germany has an "ongoing problem with racial discrimination and does not give enough consistent legal support to victims," said Bernhard Franke, the acting head of the anti-discrimination agency, when presenting the report. The feeling of being left alone with injustice has "dire consequences in the long run that endanger social cohesion," Franke warned, adding, "Discrimination wears people down."

    For this reason, the ADS' annual report focuses on the issue of racism in great detail.

    Black Lives Matter protests have taken place across Germany following George Floyd's death

    Deep traces in society

    In the report's foreword, Franke writes that 2019 was a year in which "hatred and hostility toward particular groups left deep and painful traces" — from the right-wing extremist murder of Walter Lübcke, a Christian Democratic (CDU) politician who campaigned for refugees, to the terrorist attack on a synagogue in Halle. But he wrote that there were many small incidents and everyday discrimination that had left their mark as well.

    To illustrate concretely what this means, the report includes anonymized quotes from people who describe the discrimination they face every day. For example: "A customer recently called through the store, 'Where's my (N-word)? I like it best when he massages my head!'" Or: "A kid at school insulted my brother because he has dark skin. Then the kid hit him. The teacher saw everything, but did nothing.'"

    One more example: "Two colleagues from another department approached me, laughing, and asked if I worked in the company to make coffee. I am a civil engineer from Syria and am employed as a structural engineer. When I told them that, they laughed even louder and asked whether I worked according to German or Syrian standards."

    Tip of the iceberg

    The annual report goes on to say that many of those affected have the feeling that the overall situation has not improved over the past years. They feel that although attacks and murders have shaken society, "the worries, fears and experiences of exclusion had by people with a migration background are ultimately not taken seriously."

    Violence, hatred and agitation are only the tip of the iceberg of racist attitudes and resentment, which become apparent much earlier in acts of everyday discrimination, the report says. As examples of this, the report cites ads for rented apartments that stipulate "no foreigners," the discotheque where some are told that "people like you" always cause trouble and the bosses who say a colleague who made a racist joke "didn't really mean it."

    In 2019, according to the report, one out of three people with migrant roots looking for housing within the last 10 years said they had experienced discrimination. At the same time, 41% of all respondents in a representative sample stated they had serious or very serious reservations about renting an apartment to an immigrant.

    Anonymous applications

    In principle, Germany's General Act on Equal Treatment (AGG) prohibits such things, but the legal protection against racial discrimination in the housing market is "characterized by some exceptions," according to the ADS report. A legal opinion commissioned by the agency comes to the conclusion that the EU Anti-Racism Directive has been insufficiently implemented in Germany.

    The ADS urged federal and state legislators to significantly improve both the legal position of those affected and the assistance available to them. It also said the framework for state protection and the legal consequences for violations must be more clearly defined.

    Politicians are obviously aware of the problem. Xenophobia and racism in all their aspects will be discussed by a special Cabinet committee, CDU party head Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer told DW. She said one of the things to be talked about is introducing the possibility of "anonymous applications for accommodation or jobs."

    The ADS considers the first anti-discrimination law recently passed by the state of Berlin to be an important step. The law enables people affected by discrimination by police officers or in the education sector to file complaints and claim damages and compensation.

    Disadvantage because of gender

    According to the ADS report, the largest proportion of discrimination brought to its attention occurs in the workplace or when people are looking for work. The second most common form of discrimination occurs during everyday activities such as looking for a flat, shopping, in bars and restaurants, or while dealing with insurance and banking matters.

    The agency took action in 3,580 cases last year. The total number of consultations rose by 3.6% compared with the previous year. In addition to discrimination on the basis of ethnic origin, 29% of all complaints concerned discrimination on the basis of gender, followed by discrimination on the grounds of disability (26 %), age (12%), religion (7%), sexual identity (4%) and ideology (2%).

    Activists target removal of statues including Columbus and King Leopold II

    Belgian authorities in Antwerp took down a statue of Leopold II on Wednesday after it was set on fire and daubed with paint. It is being taken to a museum in the Flemish capital for restoration and is unlikely to be returned to its original spot.

    Across Belgium the Black Lives Matter protests have reignited the campaign to remove statues of Leopold II, whose brutal and rapacious rule of Congo is estimated by historians to have caused the deaths of 10m people.

    A group called Repair History has launched a petition calling on Brussels city authorities to remove all statutes of the king by 30 June, the 60th anniversary of Congo’s independence from Belgium.

    By Thursday more than 68,000 people had signed the petition, which describes Leopold II as an executioner.

    “In the space of 23 years this man killed 10 million people without stepping foot in Congo. For 23 years, he treated the Congolese people as chattels for the production of rubber, which was very valuable at the time.” Pascal Smet, state secretary for heritage in the Brussels region, promised to launch a debate on the statues.

    Black Lives Matter activist rescues injured 'far-right protester' amid clashes

    Pictures show an injured white man - alleged to be a far-right demonstrator - clutching his head as a black man carries him over his shoulders amid violent fighting outside Waterloo station

    An injured white man alleged to be a far-right demonstrator was rescued and carried to safety by a black man after being badly beaten, say witnesses.

    The scene - one of the most striking to emerge from a day of violence in London - came during violent clashes between Black Lives Matter activists and thugs leaving Westminster after a far-right rally.

    The Met Police said that more than 100 people had been arrested following the violence, while Boris Johnson condemned the "racist thuggery" that "has no place on our streets".

    Pictures showed the white man clutching his head as a black man carried him over his shoulders, flanked by police in riot gear as animosity was briefly set aside during fights near Waterloo station.

    The man had been set upon on the steps leading to the Royal Festival Hall and badly beaten, before other protesters stepped in to protect him, Reuters journalists at the scene said.

    Earlier, thugs attacked police near Parliament during a far-right gathering organised by groups such as Britain First, which claimed they wanted to protect statues such as Winston Churchill and memorials from vandalism.

    A photo showing a man urinating next to a memorial for PC Keith Palmer, the officer stabbed to death by an Islamist terrorist in the Westminster attack in 2017, has sparked outrage and a police investigation.

    Smoke grenades, bottles and other objects were thrown at officers, who were also kicked and punched. In one video posted online, it appeared a number of white men were doing the Nazi salute as they confronted police at a barricade.

    Hooligans then moved on to Trafalgar Square, where they clashed with Black Lives Matter supporters as riot police tried to keep the two groups apart. It came shortly before a 5pm protest deadline imposed by police.

    After the deadline, fights erupted in the streets near Waterloo station after, according to witnesses Black Lives Matter supporters attacked alleged far-right protesters who were catching trains home.

    A number of men were left bloodied and in need of medical treatment.

    About 20 people were injured during Saturday's clashes.

    Six police officers suffered minor injuries, according to the force.

    Prime Minister Boris Johnson condemned the "racist thuggery" witnessed at the protests.

    Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said the violence against police had been "completely unacceptable".

    More than 100 people have been arrested during Saturday's far-right protest in London for offences including violent disorder, assaulting police officers possession of an offensive weapon, possession of class A drugs, being drunk and disorderly and breach of the peace, Scotland Yard said.

    By around 5.30pm, London Ambulance Service said it had treated 15 people for injuries, including two police officers.

    Six of these patients, all members of the public, had to be taken to hospital.

    The violent scenes in Westminster contrasted with peaceful demonstrations that took place at Hyde Park and Marble Arch by anti-racism protesters in support of the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement.

    On Friday, statues in Parliament Square - including of Winston Churchill, Nelson Mandela and Mahatma Gandhi - were boarded up to prevent them being targeted by protesters both from the Black Lives Matter movement and far-right groups.

    There were similar gatherings on Saturday in Belfast, Glasgow and Bristol with crowds massing around monuments.

    Avon and Somerset Police said around 300 people attended the demonstration in Bristol city centre, with two arrests made.

    In Brighton, more than 10,000 protesters attended a Black Lives Matter event in the city centre, after many lined the seafront in support of the movement.

    A Sussex Police spokesman said the demonstration was peaceful and no arrests were made.

    Germany and France reopen borders as Europe emerges from lockdown

    Spain to reopen borders on 21 June but other countries are adopting more targeted approach

    France and Germany became the latest European countries to reopen their borders as the continent emerges from its three-month Covid-19 lockdown.

    Speaking on Sunday evening, France’s president, Emmanuel Macron, said the country’s Schengen borders would be open from Monday and its non-EU borders from 1 July.

    He said that while France could be proud of its response to the pandemic, it needed to reflect on the crisis.

    “This challenge has also revealed weaknesses, fragilities, our dependence on other continents to procure certain products, our cumbersome organisation, our social and territorial inequalities,” he said. “I would like us to learn all the lessons from what we have been through.”

    Germany also opened its borders to fellow European travellers, but the government – which helped fly 240,000 people home as the pandemic grew exponentially – warned people to be careful as they planned their summer holidays.

    “My appeal to all those who travel: enjoy your summer vacation but enjoy it with caution and responsibility,” said the foreign minister, Heiko Maas. “Over the summer holidays, we want to make it as difficult as possible for the virus to spread again in Europe.”

    The appeal came as 10,900 German tourists began arriving in the Balearic islands as part of a pilot scheme to help Spain reactivate its crucial tourist industry.

    On Sunday, Spain’s prime minister, Pedro Sánchez, announced the country would reopen its borders to visitors from the EU and the Schengen area from Sunday 21 June.

    At the request of the Portuguese government, the land border with Spain will not open until 1 July, when Spain will open its border to travellers from other countries.

    Sánchez also called for caution in his televised address. “As you know, the threat of the pandemic remains present,” he said. “The pandemic isn’t over – a quick look at what’s happening right now in North America and South America show us that it isn’t.”

    Italy – one of the European countries hardest hit by the pandemic – reopened its borders on 3 June, but others are adopting a more targeted approach.

    Greece’s two main airports - in Athens and Thessaloniki – reopened to arrivals on Monday and the country plans to reopen its borders to the majority of European tourists, as well as those from certain other parts of the world, including Australia, Japan and New Zealand.

    However, anyone from a region particularly badly hit by the virus will have to undergo mandatory tests and spend their first night on Greek soil in a designated hotel. These include the Paris region, Madrid and Italy’s northern Lombardy region, among others.

    Switzerland, a non-EU member, opened its borders to all 27 countries, plus the UK, Norway and Liechenstein, but said arrivals from Sweden will have to take a temperature test due to its high rate of new infections.

    Norway is keeping its border closed with Sweden, whose virus strategy avoided a lockdown but produced a relatively high per capita death rate.

    On Tuesday, Austria – which has already opened its borders to most of its neighbours – will drop travel restrictions on a total of 31 countries, but has excluded Portugal, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

    The Czech Republic is also allowing free travel with a number of European countries from Monday, but restrictions are still in place with those deemed a risk due to their levels of coronavirus infections.

    Bulgaria, Croatia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Slovakia and Slovenia have also already begun to lift restrictions for foreigners entering their countries but excluded those from nations they deem as not safe – in many cases that list includes Sweden and the UK.

    Britain, which left the EU in January but remains closely aligned with the bloc until the end of this year, only last week imposed a 14-day quarantine requirement for most arrivals, horrifying its tourism and aviation industries.

    As a result, France is asking people coming from Britain to self-quarantine for two weeks and several other nations are not even letting British tourists come in during the first wave of reopenings. France will also ask visitors from Spain to self-quarantine.

    With flights only gradually picking up, nervousness about fresh outbreaks abroad, uncertainty about social distancing at tourist venues and many people facing record unemployment or pay cuts, many Europeans may choose to stay home or explore their own countries.

    The German chancellor, Angela Merkel, and her Austrian counterpart, Sebastian Kurz, are both planning to holiday in their homelands this year.

    “If you want to be really safe, the recommendation is still a vacation in Austria,” the country’s foreign minister, Alexander Schallenberg, told ORF television. He reminded people of the scramble in March to bring home thousands of tourists as borders slammed shut.

    “In Austria, you know that you don’t have to cross a border if you want to get home, and you know the infrastructure and the health system well.”

    France reverses ban on use of chokehold after police protests

    The volte-face comes days after the interior minister, Christophe Castaner, announced the controversial technique was to be dropped after two weeks of French protests following the death of George Floyd in the US.French police are taught the chokehold, also known as the “stranglehold” and “neckhold”, during training but Black Lives Matter activists and those protesting against police violence claim it has been implicated in the deaths of suspects.

    The ban, which Castaner outlined in a letter to police unions, also followed a report last week from the directors of the national police and gendarmerie suggesting “the techniques known as ‘the chokehold’ should no longer be taught or used”. It sparked immediate anger from officers who said it was an essential tool to ensure their safety. They accused the government of failing to understand the dangers they face daily.

    Following growing dissent from officers, the national police chief, Frédéric Veaux, wrote to staff saying the ban was being reversed.
