Salvadorans commemorate the murder of six Jesuit priests and two women at UCA in San Salvador – one of the civil war’s most notorious crimes Photograph: Oscar Rivera/EPA/Corbis   Every so often, Father Jon Sobrino makes the short walk from his office in San Salvador to the pretty little rose garden where, 26 years ago, soldiers forced five of his Jesuit colleagues to lie face down on the ground before shooting each one in the back of the head. After killing the five Spaniards, the soldiers then shot an infirm Salvadoran priest in his bedroom before opening fire on the…

The Trump effect: Koch-linked groups abandon GOP primary for Senate races


Billionaire Charles Koch said earlier this year he was unimpressed with the anti-Muslim rhetoric used by Donald Trump. Photograph: Paul Sancya/AP   Key conservative groups backed by the billionaire Koch brothers and their network of rich allies are plowing millions into Senate races after becoming frustrated by the overheated rhetoric and policies of leading Republican presidential candidates – especially frontrunner Donald Trump – and opting to stay out of the primaries. Three leading groups – Americans for Prosperity, Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, and Concerned Veterans for America – supported by the Koch donor network spent almost $4m on ads in just…

 Pierre Moscovici has been leading EU efforts on tax transparency. Photograph: Laurent Dubrule/EPA Britain is under growing pressure to end its opposition to an EU blacklist of tax havens, as the European commission vowed to step up action on tax transparency following the leak of the Panama Papers. Pierre Moscovici, the European commissioner in charge of tax policy, said he was outraged by the revelations in the leak of 11.5m files from the Panama-based law firm Mossack Fonseca. The extent of illegal activity was unclear, he told journalists in Brussels, but much of it was “clearly immoral, unethical and simply unacceptable”….

the guardian

 Pope Francis is not expected to grant remarried Catholics the right to take holy communion. Photograph: SIPA/Rex/Shutterstock Pope Francis is likely to disappoint Catholic reformists on Friday with the publication of his views on family life, which observers predict will not change church doctrine on divorcees and gay people, despite presenting a more open approach. The Amoris Laetitia (Joy of Love) document, known as an apostolic exhortation, follows a two-year consultation with bishops to determine how the church should address the challenges facing modern families. Francis is expected to adopt a positive tone and welcoming approach to Catholics who do not fit the…

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz‘s planned visit to a school in the Bronx was canceled after students threatened a walkout if the Texas senator came, the New York Daily News reported. Cruz was scheduled to speak at Bronx Lighthouse College Preparatory Academy, but students at the school wrote a letter to the principal asking that she not allow Cruz to come.   “We told her if he came here, we would schedule a walkout,” said Destiny Domeneck, 16. “Most of us are immigrants or come from immigrant backgrounds. Ted Cruz goes against everything our school stands for.” The letter explained that a…

Trump would seek to block money transfers to force Mexico to fund border wall

Donald Trump says he will force Mexico to pay for a border wall as president by threatening to cut off the flow of billions of dollars in payments that immigrants send home to the country, an idea that could decimate the Mexican economy and set up an unprecedented showdown between the United States and a key diplomatic ally. In a two-page memo to The Washington Post, Trump outlined for the first time how he would seek to force Mexico to pay for his 1,000-mile border fence, which Trump has made a cornerstone of his presidential campaign and which has been repeatedly scoffed…
