Black Voters Matter has embarked on what the national advocacy and policy group has christened a Freedom Ride for Voting Rights. Its goals, BVM co-founders LaTosha Brown and Cliff Albright note, are threefold: to amplify the need for federal voting rights legislation, build Black voting power, and advocate for Washington, D.C., statehood. People gather during the launch of the "Freedom Ride for Voting Rights" in Jackson, Miss., on June 19, 2021. Founded in 1869, the historically Black college became one of the epicenters of the civil rights movement. “Amen!”Barbara Arnwine, a lawyer, updated the crowd on voting rights legislation before Congress.

The Paris Club agreement over a “bridging” period until next year means Argentina will avoid a damaging default next month. It came with a commitment to strike a deal with the IMF by March 31 to revamp repayments it cannot make. The Paris Club, which has a long history with Argentina, includes among its members the United States, Germany, Brazil and Japan, which are also members of the IMF. The IMF on Thursday said it welcomed Argentina’s deal with the Paris Club, though it had no timeline currently for a new agreement. Some analysts said that even with an IMF deal, Argentina’s problems would persist, with rising poverty levels, runaway inflation and tight capital controls still in place.

Adding perky jobs data to the mix could change that picture, markets fear. Analysts expect the economy to add 600,000 jobs in June - the largest monthly gain in three months – up from a gain of 559,000 jobs in May. The U.S. Fed has shifted to a hawkish bias. Some mid-cap deals pulled stock market debuts recently: Marex Spectron in London, PHE Holdings in Paris and Primafrio in Madrid. But Nordgold aborting its debut might be the first casualty of expected central bank tightening as the hawkish Fed pushed gold 6% lower.

The prospect of a rising tide of climate litigation cases against heavy emitting businesses comes shortly after a landmark courtroom defeat for Royal Dutch Shell. INA FASSBENDER | AFP | Getty ImagesSince the turn of the century, more than 2,000 climate litigation cases were found to have been filed in a trend that is widely expected to have global implications for carbon-intensive companies. Nonetheless, it is the Dutch court ruling against Shell that is thought to have emboldened climate activists into taking on corporates directly. EcocideThe risks of a surging number of climate litigation cases for businesses include a changing regulatory environment, significant reputational damage and the expanding nature of the cases being brought. Among the new arenas of climate litigation risk, analysts say, are fraud and consumer protection liabilities, planning and permitting laws and environmental performance.

The deal with the Paris Club includes Argentina’s commitment to reach an agreement with the IMF as soon as possible and no later than the end of the first quarter of next year. “This is an issue for Argentina and the Paris Club creditors but we certainly welcome the progress that has been made there,” said IMF spokesman Gerry Rice in a scheduled press conference.

REUTERS/Charles PlatiauBERLIN, June 24 (Reuters) - Germany's Volkswagen (VOWG_p.DE) confirmed on Thursday it is considering acquiring a majority stake in car rental company Europcar (EUCAR.PA) as it seeks to tap into the trend for consumers to rent rather than own a vehicle. The car rental business has taken a heavy hit from the coronavirus pandemic given the collapse of the travel market. Company sources have suggested that Volkswagen could use Europcar's network of rental stations to help it become a broader provider of different mobility options. Bloomberg news agency had already reported that Europcar had rejected a $2.6 billion takeover bid from Volkswagen.

Failed attempts to pass marriage equality measures in 2007 and 2009, however, left supporters deflated. Andrew Cuomo was sworn into office in January after making same-sex marriage a key plank in his campaign. “We had the opposite of momentum,” said Brian Ellner, who left then-Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s office in 2011 to help lead New Yorkers for Marriage Equality. During the race, Marchione questioned McDonald’s conservative bona fides, claiming he backed same-sex marriage to secure campaign donations. That May, then-Vice President Joe Biden came out in favor of same-sex marriage, quickly followed by President Barack Obama.

International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva speaks during a joint news conference at the end of the Summit on the Financing of African Economies in Paris, France May 18, 2021. IMF chief Kristalina Georgieva this month proposed the new trust to allow rich countries to channel some of their new IMF reserves to poor and middle-income counterparts ravaged by COVID or climate change. The Group of Seven (G7) wealthy nations alone will receive $283 billion of the overall $650 billion SDR allocation. The COVID crisis is expected to leave 47 of the 82 vulnerable countries with gross debt already above levels deemed sustainable. Additionally, nine of the 10 most climate-change vulnerable countries are also highly debt-vulnerable developing economies.

Adrian Dennis/Pool via REUTERS/File PhotoLONDON, June 24 (Reuters) - It is almost two years since Novak Djokovic left Roger Federer crestfallen by edging a momentous Wimbledon final but as the tournament prepares to return after last year's cancellation, the men's game remains in the Serb's stranglehold. Since that epic five-set victory, in which he saved two match points and won the first fifth-set tiebreak in a Wimbledon final, Djokovic has claimed three of the next six majors with Rafa Nadal bagging two and Dominic Thiem one. That proved a mere bump in the road for Djokovic, however, and he will arrive at Wimbledon bidding for a sixth title to match Federer and Nadal's men's Grand Slam record haul of 20. Djokovic looked supreme at times in Paris as he claimed his second French Open title -- but there were also dips. Becker won Wimbledon a few weeks later.

Britain risks missing climate targets due to lack of policies -advisers

REUTERS/Tom Nicholson/File PhotoLONDON, June 24 (Reuters) - Britain's lack of policies to meet net zero emissions by 2050 is jeopardising its chance of meeting the target, the country's climate advisers said in a progress report on Thursday. Britain in 2019 became the G7 first member to set a net zero target, which will require wholesale changes in the way that Britons travel, eat and consume electricity. The country is also hosting international climate talks in November in Glasgow, where countries are expected to outline plans to meet the Paris climate agreement to keep global warming under 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit). Britain's greenhouse gas emissions have fallen almost 50% since 1990 largely due to an increase in renewable power such as wind and solar, and a move away from polluting coal. Failure to publish a clear strategy soon will also undermine Britain's ability to encourage other countries to set tougher climate goals at the Glasgow talks, the CCC said.

U.S. President Joe Biden's administration plans to propose new rules this year to reduce methane emissions. The New York Times used an infrared camera to identify large methane leaks at U.S. oil and gas sites in 2019 while satellite footage made available to Reuters revealed massive methane leaks from Russian gas pipelines. MOL said there were no existing regulations requiring it to measure or report emissions but it aimed to end routine methane emissions from gas activities by 2030.

Can Massive Cargo Ships Use Wind to Go Green?

Higher fuel prices would encourage the use of technologies like wind propulsion as companies look for ways to save on fuel. And if fuel costs don’t rise significantly, companies may not see a compelling reason to spend on wind propulsion. If, in this context, inventors can build a successful economic case for wind propulsion — a scenario that depends on a lot going right for them — more companies could soon place orders. According to a 2016 study for the European Commission that analyzed cargo vessels’ routes, the savings from wind propulsion could, by 2030, make it economically viable for 3,700 to 10,700 existing ships. Around that time, according to the Maersk Mc-Kinney Moeller Center for Zero Carbon Shipping, ships running on zero-carbon fuels should be hitting the market in significant numbers.
