  • Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Attend Memorial To Honor Murdered Black Teen

    The 1993 murder of the 18-year-old student exposed racism in the London police and led to a change in the law allowing suspects to be tried twice for the same crime. The service at St Martin-in-the-Fields Church, Trafalgar Square, was also attended by Prime Minister Theresa May. Lawrence was stabbed to death at a bus stop in southeast London in an unprovoked attack by a gang of white youths shouting racist abuse. Five men were arrested in the following months, but charges were dropped due to lack of evidence. Two of the men were later convicted of murder in 2012. The case became a catalyst for change after exposing deep-rooted failings in London’s Metropolitan Police, dominated by senior white officers in an increasingly multiracial society. A 1999 report by senior judge William Macpherson said the murder had exposed “institutional racism” in the force and also accused officers of incompetence and a failure of leadership. “Stephen’s family have honored the promise of his life with everything that they have done in his name - the change they have brought about, and the remarkable things they have achieved,” Prince Harry said. Prime Minister May said the government would work with the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust to establish an annual Stephen Lawrence Day on April 22 of each year. “We will use this day to encourage and support young people in achieving their dreams, and to reflect on Stephen’s life, death and the positive change he has inspired,” May said.

Débutée le 18 mars dernier à l’hôpital Saint-Antoine à Paris, la grève du personnel paramédical s’étend désormais à une petite centaine de services. Ce mardi, un nouveau rassemblement s’est tenu en début d’après-midi, devant le ministère de la Santé pour réclamer notamment plus d’effectifs, zéro hospitalisation sur des brancards et une prime de 300 euros mensuels nets en reconnaissance de la pénibilité de leur travail.Retrouvez l'info en temps réel avec Le Parisien : >> http://www.leparisien.fr/#xtor=AL-1481423430
