  • Paris, May 1968 — a view from the barricades by Gökşin Sipahioğlu

    Fifty years ago, as France exploded in mass protests, words scrawled on the walls of the Sorbonne summed up the revolutionary zeal of the time: “Run free, comrade, we’ve left the old world behind!”Half a century later, the May 1968 demonstrations that brought millions of idealistic students and striking workers to the streets remain a watershed moment in France’s cultural history.Sexual liberation, artistic creativity and anti-capitalism were the order of the day. For those who were there, it was an unforgettable time.The protests swept through a France that was still ruled by the strict conservatism of Gen. Charles de Gaulle, who was then president and banned the concerts of French rocker Johnny Hallyday for causing scenes of mass hysteria.The aftershocks of the protests would be felt for years to come. (AFP) … Gökşin Sipahioğlu, a Turkish photojournalist and one of the father figures of photojournalism, covered news stories from the 1956 war in the Sinai Peninsula to Mao’s revolution in China, the Cuban missile crisis, the 1972 Munich Olympics killings, and the Prague Spring and Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia.As a correspondent for the Turkish daily Hürriyet, he came to Paris to cover the May 1968 student uprising. While many photojournalists were on the streets, Gökşin brought his curiosity, audacity, uncanny anticipation of events, and keen eye to the frontlines to freshly illuminate the quickly unfolding events. He remarked at the time:“At first I did not understand what was going on. For hours on the first day of rioting the police allowed the students to do as they liked. The students wrecked everything, ripped up paving stones, chopped down trees, erected barricades, set cars on fire. Later, in a matter of minutes, the CRS [riot police] charged the students. I asked myself, ‘Why hadn’t they charged earlier?’ I soon understood why. The authorities wanted the public to see the devastation.”While in Paris, Gökşin realized that a network was sorely needed for distribution of news photos, and he founded Sipa Press photo news agency in 1973 with American journalist Phyllis Springer. Encouraging young photographers and giving many their first chance, Gökşin created a generation of photojournalists.Photography by Gökşin Sipahioğlu/SIPA“May 68, photographs by Gökşin Sipahioğlu,” is on view at Galerie Basia Embiricos and Photo 12 Galerie in Paris through May 25, 2018. It was curated by Ferit Duzyol in collaboration with Sipa Press. _____See more news-related photo galleries and follow us on Yahoo News Photo Twitter and Tumblr.

    US scientists found a Spanish galleon laden with treasure worth up to £12.6bn ($17bn) at the bottom of the Caribbean Sea, more than 300 years after it sank. The San Jose, considered the holy grail of shipwrecks, was discovered three years ago off the coast of Colombia but few details were released at the time.

    New US research has found that eating a Mediterranean diet may provide some protection from the harmful effects of long-term exposure to air pollution, helping to reduce the risk of heart attacks, stroke and other causes of death. Carried out by researchers at the NYU School of Medicine, the study looked at data taken from 548,699 people with an average age of 62 who were followed for a 17-year period. The researchers categorized the participants into five groups based on how strongly they adhered to a Mediterranean diet and estimated their long-term exposure to fine particulate matter (PM2.5), nitrous oxide (NO2) and ozone (O3).

    China rebuffed U.S. concerns about its ties with Venezuela on Tuesday after Washington imposed new sanctions on the crisis-stricken oil-producing country following the re-election of its socialist President Nicolas Maduro. Maduro, the 55-year-old successor to late leftist leader Hugo Chavez, hailed his win in Sunday's election as a victory against "imperialism". In response to the vote, U.S. President Donald Trump issued an executive order restricting Venezuela's ability to liquidate state assets and debt in the United States, the latest in a series of sanctions that seeks to choke off financing for the already cash-strapped government.

  • Mike Pompeo threatens 'strongest sanctions in history' and vows to 'crush' Iranian proxies

    Golocal247.com news

    Mike Pompeo, the US secretary of state, threatened Iran with the "strongest sanctions in history" and vowed to "crush" the regime's proxies around the world on Monday, sparking a furious response from Tehran. Mr Pompeo also called for a new nuclear treaty with Iran to replace the Obama-era deal that Donald Trump withdrew from earlier this month. But the top US diplomat issued a list of  12 requirements for such a deal, many of which Iran would be unlikely to agree to. He said the US would apply "unprecedented financial pressure" on Iran and send teams of specialists to allies around the world to explain US policy. Mr Pompeo said if Iran makes "major changes" the US was willing to lift all sanctions. Iran responded in furious fashion. President Hassan Rouhani led a bitter personal attack on Mr Pompeo, pointing out that he had until recently led the CIA, which had been implicated in Iran's 1953 coup. "A guy who had been active in an espionage center for years now wants to make a decision for Iran and other countries from the position of a foreign minister. It is not acceptable under any circumstance," he said. Javad Zarif, the foreign minister, insisted Iran was working with other partners to find a new solution. US diplomacy sham is merely a regression to old habits: imprisoned by delusions & failed policies—dictated by corrupt Special Interest—it repeats the same wrong choices and will thus reap the same ill rewards. Iran, meanwhile, is working with partners for post-US JCPOA solutions.— Javad Zarif (@JZarif) May 21, 2018 Iran deal was a 'loser' Delivering his first major foreign policy speech since taking the job, Mr Pompeo doubled down on the United States’ decision to quit the Iran nuclear deal earlier this month.  He framed the 2015 deal as allowing Iran to increase its malign influence across the Middle East on the back of funding from renewed trade with the West. Mr Pompeo accused the Iranian regime of "playing with house money that has become blood money". And he told the regime: "Understand your current activities will be met with steely resolve". He added: "The Obama administration made a bet.  That bet was a loser with massive repercussions. Mike Pompeo speaking in Washington Credit: Reuters "The bet was a bad one for the US, for Europe, and for the world. Iran's leaders saw it as a starting gun for the march across the Middle East." He added: "We will track down Iranian operatives and their proxies around the world and we will crush them." America 'open' to a new deal Mr Pompeo called for a new treaty with Iran, ratified by Congress, that ends enrichment and gives inspectors access . He said Iran must "stop enrichment" of uranium, which was allowed within strict limitations under the 2015 deal. Iran must also allow nuclear inspectors "unqualified access to all sites throughout the country". The Iranians must also declare all previous efforts to build a nuclear weapon, he said. Mr Pompeo also demanded that Iran must end support for Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen, withdraw all forces from Syria, halt support for Hezbollah and stop threatening Israel. It must also release all US citizens missing in Iran or being held on "spurious charges". Mike Pompeo Iran demands Mr Pompeo said if Iran made "major changes" the US would be willing to lift all sanctions, restoring full diplomatic and commercial ties. The US. would even support the modernisation of Iran's economy and help it reintegrate into the global financial system, he said. He added: "A treaty would be our preferred way to go."   Pompeo reaches out to European allies Mr Pompeo reached out to European and Middle Eastern  allies to help ramp up economic pressure on Iran. He said: "We want the support of our most important allies," adding that he welcomed backing from any other nation "sick and tired" of Iran. He said the plan "may seem unrealsistic" but what the US was pursuing was the global consensus befoe the 2015 Iran deal. "Our ears are open to what may be possible," he said, adding that progress with North Korea showed what could be achieved.   Other signatories of the 2015 Ian deal - Britain, France, Germany, the European Union, China, Russia and Iran - have said they will try to keep the agreement alive.  Mr Pompeo said: "I know our allies in Europe may try to keep the old nuclear deal going with Tehran. That is certainly their decision. They know where wee stand." The future of the 2015 deal remains in the balance, with Iran saying it will only keep to the agreement if the economic benefits gained from it remain in placed.  American allies have been clamouring for the Trump administration to explain its ‘Plan B’ approach to Iran after unilaterally quitting the deal.  US 'fully prepared' to respond if Iran resumes nuclear programme Mr Pompeo said the US was ready if Iran chose to resume its nuclear programme. He said: "Our demands on Iran are not unreasonable - give up your programme. "Should they choose to go back, should they begin to enrich, we are fully prepared to respond to that as well. I hope they will make a different decision, choose a different path." He did not say what the US response would be. European businesses would have to cut ties with Iran Much of the effectiveness of the Trump administration’s reimposition of sanctions depends on European businesses cutting economic ties with Iran.   Firms in the EU have taken much more advantage of the 2015 waiving of sanctions to sign contracts increasing business in Iran than those in America.  The EU exported over €10.8 billion (£9.4 billion) worth of goods to Iran in 2017, half of which was made up by machinery and transport. That is up from €6.5 billion (£5.7 billion) in 2015.  Senior Trump administration officials have threatened to impose ‘secondary sanctions’ on European businesses if they refuse to cancel their contracts. In return the EU has moved to reimpose a “blocking statue” originally meant to circumvent a the US embargo against Cuba in the 1990s that would protect European businesses.
