The demonstration and the meeting were rare events in the communist-run island where dissent is not tolerated. At the end officials agreed to review the case of the jailed rapper and to hold future talks over their complaints on freedom of expression. Authorities said the expulsion was necessary because one of the 14 members had recently arrived from Mexico and had not quarantined appropriately. The group was protesting the imprisonment of one of their members, rapper Denis Solis. Only one of the 14 members of the original group was present at the protest Friday night.

PARIS (Reuters) - France’s IGPN police watchdog is investigating allegations a Black music producer was physically attacked and racially abused during a police check, said French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin on Twitter on Thursday. The alleged victim, who only gave his identity as Michel, told reporters on Thursday that he was jumped upon by police at his music studio in Paris’ 17th arrondissement on Nov. 21. He said he had been walking around nearby without a facemask - against French COVID health protocols - and upon seeing a police car, went into his music studio to avoid getting a fine. However, the police followed him inside the studio and started to physically attack him and racially abuse him, he said. “I want the IGPN to do their job,” Michel told reporters.

"Family Photo" for annual G20 Summit World Leaders is projected onto Salwa Palace in At-Turaif, one of Saudi Arabia?s UNESCO World Heritage sites, in Diriyah, Saudi Arabia, November 20, 2020. Debt relief for Africa will be a main theme of the Italian presidency of the G20 in 2021. The change of U.S. leadership also raises hopes of a more concerted effort at G20 level to fight climate change. Under Trump, the United States pulled out of the Paris Agreement on fighting climate change, but the decision is likely to be reversed by President-elect Joe Biden. To help finance the fight again climate change the EU will push for the G20 to agree common global standards on what constitutes “green” investment.
