Iranians rally in Berlin in solidarity with protesters at home



Some 80,000 Iranians and their supporters marched in Berlin on Saturday, in one of the biggest rallies by the Iranian diaspora in solidarity with ongoing protests.

The protests in Iran were triggered by the death of a young woman in police custody. Mahsa Amini, 22, died after being arrested by morality police in Tehran on 13 September for allegedly wearing her headscarf too loosely.

Police denied reports that she was beaten on the head with a baton and said she suffered a heart attack.

Amini’s death catalyzed six weeks of demonstrations by Iranian women against the mandatory wearing of headscarves, which they see as a symbol of oppression. The slogan of the protesters has been “Women, Life and Liberty!”

On Saturday, rallies were held in several world capitals including Washington, where thousands turned out.

The rally in Berlin was one of the biggest held by the Iranian diaspora in solidarity with the protesters at home. Chanting “Women, Life and Liberty!”, Iranians from across Europe came together to show their support.

In Iran itself, the protests have entered a sixth week with no end in sight. The demonstrators are calling for an end to the mandatory wearing of headscarves, as well as an end to the Islamic Republic itself. The regime has responded with a heavy-handed crackdown, arresting hundreds of people and using violence against those who take to the streets.

The international community has been largely silent on the issue, but there are signs that that may be changing. In recent days, both Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French President Emmanuel Macron have spoken out in support of the protesters. It remains to be seen whether this will lead to any concrete action, but it is clear that the world is watching closely as the situation in Iran unfolds.

The rally in Berlin is one of many being held around the world in solidarity with the protesters in Iran.

Ukraine prepares for a summer of violence



Is support for the war waning after the conflict has surpassed 1-year and millions of dollars?

After a Russian air assault on Kyiv in which one civilian was killed, residential buildings in wealthy districts of Moscow were hit by multiple drone strikes injuring two people.

The Kremlin is claiming that most of the drone strikes which happened during broad daylight—were intercepted.

A Russian politician said the attack on the capital was the most dangerous since World War II.

Russia says Ukraine launched the attack and has vowed to bolster their air defenses.

Meanwhile, Ukraine is denying direct involvement, having just recently suffered three air attacks within a 24-hour time span.

Last month, leaked Department of Defense documents revealed possible weak links in Ukraine’s military campaign against Russian forces.

Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine with tens of thousands of troops more than a year ago and there appears to be no end in sight.

“I think there is a great risk”: will AI steal our jobs?



Artificial Intelligence has become an increasingly powerful and pervasive force in our modern world.

Artificial intelligence is not a new concept. However, the growing advancements have the potential to revolutionise industries, improve efficiency, and enhance the quality of life.

Along with its promising advancements, artificial intelligence also brings certain risks and challenges that must be acknowledged and addressed.

It has become the focus of lawmakers, who are working towards greater regulation of the sector.

U.S. and European Union officials recently met in Sweden to weigh up the benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies.

“The AI process is creeping up on us,” said Dr Keith Suter, who is a global futurist.

“You’ve got competition between companies.”

It’s almost like some of us can see this raft that’s heading towards the rapids and a disappearance towards the waterfall, and we’re giving a warning but it’s not being heeded because everybody’s in this race to get down to the river,” Dr Suter said.
