Protests in Helsinki ahead of Trump-Putin summit

Protesters in the Finnish capital on Sunday denounced the meeting of a “man-baby” and “evil spy” as Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin prepared to go head to head in a historic summit clouded by Russia’s alleged manipulation of the 2016 US election.

Monday’s summit in Helsinki will offer Putin, a former KGB spymaster, and Trump the chance to get the measure of each other on an array of fronts including Syria, Ukraine and nuclear disarmament.

In a festive atmosphere and warm sunshine, more than 2,000 people denounced attacks on human rights, press freedom and dissent as they marched to Helsinki’s central Senate Square on the eve of the summit taking place in the nearby presidential palace. (AFP)

Bastille Day military parade on the Champs-Élysées in Paris
France celebrated Bastille Day on Saturday with a colorful military parade in Paris presided by President Emmanuel Macron, and hoped the party would continue on Sunday when the national soccer team meets Croatia in the World Cup final in Russia.

Standing on a military vehicle flanked by motorcycle escorts and led by a cavalry procession, Macron rode down the Champs-Élysées, Paris’s most famous boulevard, for his second July 14 parade, cheered by hundreds of spectators.

Bastille Day commemorates the storming of a prison in 1789, a key event in the French Revolution.

After U.S. President Donald Trump in 2017, Macron this year invited the leaders of Japan and Singapore, two Asian nations with long-standing strategic partnership with France. (Reuters)

After being deported, two former Maryland soccer stars started over in El Salvador
In just five days, Diego and Lizandro Claros Saravia went from being promising soccer players with college aspirations to deportees sent to one of the most dangerous countries on earth.

On Aug. 2, 2017 — despite a campaign by their family, coaches and teammates in suburban Maryland, where they’d attended high school — the brothers were put on a plane back to El Salvador, saying goodbye to the place they had called home for nearly a decade.

After Lizandro and Diego were detained by immigration authorities, Fátima, left, and Jonathan Claros Saravia, their older siblings, spearheaded a campaign to try to save them from deportation

The brothers’ case is just one example of the Trump administration’s policy of deporting immigrants who have not committed a crime after arriving in the U.S. Other recent cases of people detained by ICE include a pizza delivery man and father to two young girls; a man who called police for help; and a Michigan father who had lived in the U.S. for three decades.

Diego, right, and Lizandro Claros Saravia, grew up in El Salvador before coming to the U.S. when they were 14 and 11.

The brothers have received support from Maryland Democrats, including Rep. John Delaney and Sen. Chris Van Hollen, but it’s unclear that anything can be done to bring them back to the U.S. soon unless immigration laws change.

In the meantime, Diego and Lizandro are still adjusting to their new lives thousands of miles away from their parents in Maryland.

“Maybe our dreams didn’t end, but I like to be realistic and think about where I am,” Lizandro said. “And there’s no American dream unless I’m in the United States.”

Pro-Trump rally by English far-right activists in London
Several hundred English far-right activists applauded and cheered on Saturday when a large cut out picture of President Donald Trump was unveiled during a march through central London.

The few thousand strong group were made up of those who were on a “Welcome Trump” march and another larger one in support of a jailed far-right activist.

Although there were a few signs saying “Britain loves Trump”, the focus was clearly the jailed activist Tommy Robinson. (Reuters)
