Trump’s UK state visit: Pomp, pageantry and protests
After months of discussions and amid huge security, US President Donald Trump is arriving for his three-day state visit to the UK. Monday’s highlight will be a dinner in his honour at Buckingham Palace, which First Lady Melania Trump will also attend. Several UK politicians, including the Labour and Liberal Democrat leaders and London’s mayor, are boycotting the event.
Protests are planned in many places, including London, Manchester, Belfast, Birmingham and Nottingham.

Giving a voice to missing and murdered women
By Jessica Murphy
It has been almost 50 years since Helen Betty Osborne – a Cree woman who dreamed of becoming a teacher – was abducted and brutally murdered near The Pas, Manitoba, a town deeply divided along racial lines.
In many ways, the death of the 19-year-old was indicative of cases to come – an indigenous teenager forced to leave her remote community, targeted by four men simply because of her race, and a family’s long wait for justice.
