US 'White Lives Matter' Marches Likely to Be Even Bigger Flop Than Last Time
Mediapro will pay what it still owes to the football league?
© Mediapro Mediapro will pay what it still owes to the football league? The Catalan must still 31.2 million euros at the FPA. But short of cash, he could end up in the inability to honor all his debts. The Nightmark Mediapro may not be finished for the Professional Football League (LFP). The Catalan had not been able to pay the television rights of the League 1 acquired in 2018.
Neo-Nazis and far-right extremists unmoved by the failure of their last "White Lives Matter" marches were still hoping a new coordinated event would take off on Saturday.
A number of white supremacist ralliesacross the U.S. and abroad for May 8, less than a month after the previous marches on April 11 flopped.
The Chauvin Trial’s Jury Wasn’t Like Other Juries
Its guilty verdict resulted not just from the strength of the evidence, but from a jury-selection process that departed from American norms.But even with all that evidence, convictions don’t happen on their own. Twelve people, selected by lot from the public, must come to a unanimous decision. That jury—who it comprised, how those people saw the world—was of enormous consequence. This wasn’t just any jury, and the difference that made should invite a major reckoning with how juries—the deciding bodies of the country’s judicial system—are selected in America.
Despite being heavily publicized, only one far-right rally in Huntington Beach, California, appeared to have been attended by any significant number of white supremacists, but they were still heavily
Many other planned events were poorly attended, including some with only one attendee. Others were canceled altogether.
Despite this, a new day of promised white supremacist marches is being promoted for 9 a.m on May 8 on Telegram, the encrypted messaging service where the original "White Lives Matter" was also organized and discussed.
A new "White Lives Matter Official" Telegram channel was created to promote the marches. It currently has more than 3,700 subscribers, with dozens of individual channels also set up for U.S. states and foreign countries.
'London to Delhi' cycle raises cash for India's COVID crisis
LONDON (AP) — For British IT consultant Yogen Shah, India’s COVID-19 crisis is deeply personal. The pictures of people hooked up to oxygen bottles on the streets of New Delhi and patients sharing beds in overcrowded hospitals remind him of his uncle in India, who recently contracted the disease. So Shah joined volunteers from one of Britain’s largest Hindu temples who set out to raise 500,000 pounds ($690,000) by racking up 7,600 kilometers (4,722 miles) on stationary bikes — roughly the distance from London to Delhi — in 48 hours.
However, with less than one day to go, a vast majority of the channels had not revealed specific details such as an exact location for their 9 a.m march, despite being created weeks ago.
Two locations have been revealed in the Florida "White Lives Matter" channel— Airport Pulling Road in Naples and Cattleman Road and Bee Ridge Road in Sarasota. In both cases, those hoping to attend the white supremacist rallies were being encouraged to wear masks to protect their identities, rather than to follow COVID-19 health guidelines.
The "White Lives Matter" channel promoting the Florida events had 91 subscribers, with virtually all of the individual channels for each state only having a handful to a few dozen subscribers.
The channel for Pennsylvania has already confirmed it has canceled any attempt to hold a new rally.
"This location will not host an official event on the 8th of May," a post stated. "Activism will happen in each and every location, however, due to the decentralized way of organizing, it is up to you to do the best YOU can for our people in your states/country."

Many others are also merely sharing the racist posts from the main "White Lives Matter Official" channel rather than organizing an event.
Just like in April, there is no real indication that the new planned "White Lives Matter" marches will transpire into any significant rallies, but some cities are preparing counter-demonstrations.
In San Diego, California, an Antifa group said they will hold a rally against any Ku Klux Klan or neo-Nazi groups hoping to hold a march on May 8 in order to "hold space and protect" the city.
A counter-protest is also due to take place in Wilmot Township, Canada, on May 8 after posters promoting a far-right rally for May 8 appeared in Wilmot and Wellesley.
"It is time to present a new vision for Wilmot that is rooted in anti-racism and intersectionality," the organizers of the event wrote on itspage.
"Your presence is to build a wall of safety and solidarity for the grassroots activists and community leaders who have been leading the way in the fight against white supremacy. Let's show everyone in the community that Wilmot will no longer tolerate hate."
