A woman has activated the ancient Norman rite of Clameur de Haro to protest against the narrowing of a road which she claims would endanger pedestrians and motorists. Rosie Henderson, from Guernsey, raised the clameur by kneeling and calling for help and reciting the Lord’s Prayer in Norman French. Fully enforceable in Guernsey and Jersey law, it means the construction work in St Peter Port must stop until a court decides the case. Henderson, a parish councillor, raised the clameur on Tuesday by the roads of Les Échelons and South Esplanade, near the construction site. Whoever calls the clameur has 24 hours to register it in court, but whoever it is called against must stop all work immediately.

Fraser Anning urges vote on ending Muslim immigration – politics live Read moreHe also invoked the white Australia policy, suggesting Australians may want “to return to the predominately European immigration policy of the pre-Whitlam consensus”. The white Australia policy, which restricted non-European immigration, ran from 1901 until it began to be dismantled in the late 1960s. The senator then invoked the term “final solution” in calling for his preferred plebiscite on the “immigration problem”. “The final solution to the immigration problem, of course, is a popular vote.”Labor’s Senate leader, Penny Wong, blasted the contribution shortly after delivery on Tuesday evening. “My parents were married in the dying days of the white Australia policy,” she told Guardian Australia.

Turning off location history won’t hide where you are when you use search, Maps or weather. Here’s how to stop being trackedWhen you turn off “location history” Google still tracks your location when you use several of its key services including Maps, search and the weather. When you turn off location history, Google stops automatically recording your location for features such as the Maps timeline, but it warns you that “some location data may be saved as part of your activity on other Google services, like Search and Maps”. To prevent it from doing so you need to turn off another setting called “Web & App Activity”. You can also delete your location history in your Google Maps timeline by clicking on the bin icon.

The whistleblower will speak in October at the Institute of Contemporary Arts dinnerChelsea Manning will discuss the Cambridge Analytica scandal and other issues around technology and democracy during her first appearance in the UK later this year. Quick guide Cambridge Analytica: the story so far Show Hide What services did Cambridge Analytica provide? Two-and-a-half years after the first report in the Guardian of Kogan's use of Facebook data, the company responded, banning Kogan and Cambridge Analytica from its platform and launching an investigation into misuse of its site. She will also talk about Cambridge Analytica, the political consulting firm that worked for Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and harvested raw data from up to 87m Facebook profiles. Since her release from prison, Manning has said pressures and difficulties with mainstream outlets had forced her to send the documents directly to WikiLeaks but she has never apologised or expressed regret.

Mapping the world’s cities where you can live comfortably without heating or air conditioning reveals how few boast such ideal climates – and how global warming may further narrow the fieldLast summer I mapped the cities of the world where the residents can live comfortably without heating or air conditioning. Working with Guardian Cities to scale up the original survey using data from the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, we broke the world’s cities into four categories. Second, cities that are warmer in the summer, meaning you probably want air conditioning but can still get by without heating. Lastly, cities with hot summers and cold winters, where you probably want both air conditioning and heating. Using data from the Impact Climate Lab, we have modelled how climate change might affect temperatures globally, making more people dependent on air conditioning in cities where it is currently strictly a luxury.

Men use wet wipes too, as well as other products that can clog the sewers if they are flushed, not binned. But what about other daily products – wet wipes, nappies and period products?” asked Caroline Russell of the Green party, chair of the LGA environment committee. Held together by fat dumped into the sewer system from domestic sources and eateries, they are made up largely of wet wipes. Wet wipes, despite the havoc they cause in sewers, are frequently labelled as flushable, which confuses consumers. The report also calls for much more signage in public areas, informing people about the dangers of flushing wet wipes and other plastic-containing products.

China has said Xinjiang faces a serious threat from Islamist militants and separatists who plot attacks and stir up tension between the mostly Muslim Uighur minority who call the region home and the ethnic Han Chinese majority. Members of a UN panel reviewing China’s rights record have said they received credible reports that one million ethnic Uighurs are held in what resembles a “massive internment camp that is shrouded in secrecy”. The “ulterior motives” of anti-China forces were behind the “unfounded” slandering of the country’s anti-terrorism measures, foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said in a statement. “Any defamatory rumours are futile,” Lu said, adding that the situation in Xinjiang was stable with communities of all ethnicities getting along harmoniously, and economic development enjoying good momentum. China officially guarantees freedom of religion but in recent years officials nervous about the possibility of radicalisation and violence have tightened controls in heavily Muslim areas.

And both believe that the BDS movement will expose the true nature of the conflict to the world. “Abu Mazen understands more than the BDS movement that you have to be subtle,” he said. In Gaza this January, I met Haidar Eid, a professor of literature at Al-Azhar University and a co-founder of the BDS movement in Gaza. International organisations, too, have been influenced by the BDS movement to move slowly from ineffectual condemnations to calls for practical measures that have some teeth. One of the primary apprehensions of liberal Zionists about the BDS movement is what they consider to be its strident tone and uncompromising positions.

National Farmers’ Federation says US court ruling that weedkiller causes cancer sets a ‘reckless precedent’Australian farmers body says Roundup cancer ruling is 'in blatant ignorance' of scienceAustralia’s National Farmers’ Federation has rejected the finding of a US court that the weedkiller Roundup causes cancer, saying it set a “reckless precedent” that could harm agriculture. The jury ruled that Dewayne Johnson, a school groundskeeper, developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma due to regularly using Roundup. The active chemical in Roundup – glyphosate – has been classified as “probably carcinogenic” by the World Health Organisation but is still approved for use in Australia and the US.

Proposed laws would also compel Facebook, Apple and Google to assist in decrypting private communicationsLaw enforcement agencies would gain new powers to conduct covert surveillance on electronic devices and compel technology companies to assist in decrypting private communications under proposed legislation. “We must ensure our laws reflect the rapid take-up of secure online communications by those who seek to do us harm,” he said. Warrants would allow agencies including police and anti-corruption bodies to remove computers, copy data and to conceal their activities from the person under surveillance. Steele-John said the legislation would allow security agencies to install software to capture data as it is decrypted on the receiving end “undermining the very principle of end-to-end encryption”. Taylor said the reforms “will allow law enforcement and interception agencies to access specific communications without compromising the security of a network”.
