French Socialists see reason to hope with Greens in turmoil| Reuters

LA ROCHELLE, France French Socialists welcomed a decision by two senior Green lawmakers to split away and create a new movement to support them, saying on Friday it would strengthen the Left's hand in regional and presidential elections. The extra support could be key for Socialist President Francois Hollande's chances to get re-elected in 2017 as well as for regional elections in December. The Greens were a junior ally in Hollande's government until they decided last year to leave, angered by what they said was a move toward more centrist economic and social policies #United States #Middle East #United Kingdom #Latin America #Entertainment

Iraqi PM orders easier access to Baghdad's Green Zone as protests surge| Reuters

BAGHDAD Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi on Friday ordered security forces to ease access to Baghdad's fortified Green Zone and main streets, in an apparent bid to improve daily life for ordinary Iraqis as fresh protests erupted across the country. The capital and many southern cities have witnessed demonstrations in recent weeks calling for provision of basic services, the trial of corrupt politicians, and the shakeup of a system riddled with graft and incompetence. Tens of thousands of demonstrators filled Baghdad's Tahrir Square on Friday in what a senior security official called the biggest protest of the summer #India #Islam #Technology #Crime #Latin America #crisis #Entertainment

Japan student group injects new exuberance into anti-war protests| Reuters

TOKYO Wearing shorts and a baggy T-shirt and clutching a microphone, Aki Okuda stands before a crowd, the pyramid-shaped roof of Japan's parliament lit up against the night sky behind him. "No War", "Protect the Constitution", "Abe - Quit!", he chants in a hip-hop rhythm, echoed by the crowd. Okuda, 23, is a founding member of a group of students that has become a fresh face of protest against Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's push to enact a more robust defence policy - steps critics say violate the pacifist constitution and could ensnare Japan in U.S.-led wars. #Business #Japan #Technology #Middle East #Latin America #Entertainment
