There is no evidence that an unexplained death of a person in Cornwall, southwest England, was linked with satanic rituals, as suggested by some social media users. The false claim was made on Instagram (here) and builds on earlier misinformation that such rituals were carried out near this month’s meeting of G7 leaders in Carbis Bay, Cornwall (here). Reuters addressed this claim here , and found images of those allegedly carrying out the rituals were climate protesters. The caption reads: “A body found and satanic rituals?? The pictures of demonstrations show climate activist groups, not people carrying out satanic rituals.

Photos of protesters near the G7 summit in Cornwall have been used by social media users to baselessly claim satanic rituals took place in the area. “Satanic rituals going on here in Cornwall Carbis Bay where the G7 is being held,” wrote the Facebook user in the post’s caption (here). “Satanic rituals in Cornwall G7 … doesn’t surprise me,” said a user who shared a similar video on Twitter (here). However, it is not true to say the images show people carrying out satanic rituals; rather, they are pictures of protesters demanding climate action during the G7 summit. The photos show protesters demanding climate action at the latest G7 summit.

The U.S. and EU are nearing a truce on the Boeing-Airbus dispute
  + stars: | 2021-06-15 | by ( Silvia Amaro | ) www.cnbc.com sentiment -0.99   time to read: +1 min
President Joe Biden and his EU counterparts are keen to show that there is new momentum in the trans-Atlantic relationship. CNBC reported last week that the EU was pressing the White House to reach a deal to end trade tariffs imposed during the Donald Trump presidency, in relation to the Airbus and Boeing dispute that first emerged in 2004. Trump imposed duties worth $7.5 billion on European products after the World Trade Organization ruled that the EU had given unfair subsidies to Airbus. Shortly afterwards, the EU imposed tariffs worth $4 billion on U.S. products off the back of another WTO ruling that said the U.S. had granted illegal aid to Boeing. The EU has been keen to set a date to remove these outstanding tariffs and suggested July 11 last week.

Biden Tries to Rally G-7 Leaders to Challenge China

CARBIS BAY, England—Leaders of the Group of Seven wealthy democracies called on China to respect human rights but stopped short of an outright condemnation of Beijing, as President Biden sought to build momentum for an international coalition to counter Chinese influence in the world. The statement is unlikely to have any immediate practical effect. While it named Beijing despite some initial concerns from several European leaders that forceful language might antagonize China, the U.S. didn’t succeed in naming China in a section of the statement condemning forced labor practices. French President Emmanuel Macron said that he was eager to continue to engage with China on issues such as climate change. “That is unchanged,” he said, adding that nations needed to treat China with respect.

Doug Mills/Pool via REUTERSWhite House national security adviser Jake Sullivan said on Sunday G7 leaders rallied around the need to “counter and compete” with China on challenges ranging from safeguarding democracy to the technology race. "Words like counter and compete were words coming out of the mouths of every leader in the room, not just Joe Biden," he said. G7 leaders also sought to counter China's growing influence by offering developing countries an infrastructure plan that could rival Beijing's Belt and Road Initiative by supporting projects such as railways in Africa and wind farms in Asia. It says many major powers are still gripped by an outdated imperial mindset after years of humiliating China.

"We ... acknowledge the risk of carbon leakage, and will work collaboratively to address this risk and to align our trading practices with our commitments under the Paris agreement," G7 leaders said on Sunday in a joint communique. The leaders said policies to put a price on CO2 will help them decarbonise their economies. A draft of the EU policy would require importers of iron and steel, aluminium, cement, fertilisers, and electricity to buy digital certificates to get their goods over the EU border. We need to address carbon leakage to create (a) global level playing field," European Council President Charles Michel said in a tweet after the G7 meeting. Brussels says the policy is needed to put EU firms on an equal footing with competitors in countries with weaker climate policies.

LONDON — President Joe Biden and his fellow Group of Seven leaders agreed to donate 1 billion coronavirus vaccine doses to poorer countries over the next year, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told reporters as the summit wrapped up on Sunday. But the commitment falls far short of the 11 billion doses the World Health Organization said are needed to vaccinate at least 70 percent of the world's population. A plan to offer developing nations an infrastructure scheme that could rival China's huge Belt and Road initiative was also on the agenda. Greenpeace U.K. accused Johnson of producing "reheated old promises" and said it would take "nothing for granted" until nations came up with the money. As the host of the summit, the U.K. was on a charm offensive, deploying the royal family to meet world leaders on Friday.

Leon Neal/Pool via REUTERSCARBIS BAY, England (Reuters) - Group of Seven leaders were trying to resolve differences over a proposal to reallocate $100 billion from the International Monetary Fund’s warchest to help countries struggling to cope with the COVID-19 crisis. An almost final version of the G7 communique seen by Reuters showed Germany and Italy had yet to back the inclusion of the $100 billion figure in the final statement by leaders. The IMF’s members agreed in April to a $650 billion increase in IMF’s Special Drawing Rights and the G7 countries are considering whether to reallocate $100 billion of their rights to help poor countries fight the COVID pandemic. SDRs are the IMF’s reserve asset, and are exchangeable for dollars, euros, sterling, yen and Chinese yuan or renminbi. Member states can loan or donate their SDR reserves to other countries for their use.

French President Emmanuel Macron stepped into the Brexit maelstrom on the sidelines of the Group of Seven summit by sparring with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson over the post-Brexit geography of the United Kingdom and France. Ultimately, the discussion keeps coming back to the delicate patchwork of history, nationalism, religion and geography that intertwine in Northern Ireland. "The president said that Toulouse and Paris were part of a single geographic area and that Northern Ireland was on an island," the Elysee Palace said. BREXIT RIDDLEThe EU does not want Northern Ireland to be a backdoor into its single market but will not accept a border between the province and the Republic of Ireland. "He reminded (Johnson) that the UK’s exit from the EU was a British decision and that it was necessary to stick to the word given," the Elysee said.

President Biden urged G7 leaders to collectively rebuke China over forced labor. Some G7 leaders with trade ties to Beijing expressed concern about calling out human-rights abuses. President Joe Biden this weekend worked to rally the Group of Seven to offer a collective rebuke to China over forced labor, human-rights abuses, and other "non-market" practices. The administration said Biden had urged other G7 members to speak out about China's "practices that are harmful and distorted to the global economy." Some senior UK officials, for example, have sought to keep human-rights abuses in China off the table, partly because the UK has worked to build up trade with China, Politico reported.
