Anthony Wallace / AFP / Getty Images Hong Kong has sentenced three young activists, including Joshua Wong, one of the leaders of the 2014 pro-democracy protests, to prison for taking part in anti-China demonstrations. The sentencing of Wong, 20, along with student leaders Nathan Law, 24, and Alex Chow, 26, also means they are banned from running for public office for the next five years. Wong received a six-month sentence while Law and Chow received eight and seven months respectively. In 2014, Wong led a group of student protesters to scale a fence surrounding Hong Kong's legislative headquarters and occupied the building courtyard, which triggered a 79-day pro-democracy movement that became known as the Umbrella Revolution. Wong and Chow were convicted of unlawful assembly while Law was convicted of inciting others to take part in an unlawful assembly. Following the announcement of the sentencing on Thursday, Wong took to Tw..

Why The Hell Are Australia And New Zealand Fighting?

This is Australia's deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce, a surprise citizen of New Zealand. Stefan Postles / Getty Images Australia's second-highest ranking politician was, until this week, a citizen of New Zealand, unbeknownst even to him. The way that fact was uncovered has caused the government to accuse the opposition Labor Party in Oz of treachery for allegedly conspiring with its Labour counterpart in New Zealand (also in opposition) to bring down the Australian government. This alleged treason was made possible by the fact that if Barnaby Joyce lost his seat, his Coalition's majority would evaporate and it could cost it government. Joyce sits in the lower house of parliament in Australia, and whichever party has the majority in the lower house forms government. And New Zealand is very much going "uhh, you what, bro?"

Hey America, This Is Why Australia And New Zealand Are Fighting Right Now

This is Australia's deputy prime minister Barnaby Joyce, a surprise citizen of New Zealand. Stefan Postles / Getty Images Australia's second-highest ranking politician was, until this week, a citizen of New Zealand, unbeknownst even to him. The way that fact was uncovered has caused the government to accuse the opposition Labor Party in Oz of treachery for allegedly conspiring with its Labour counterpart in New Zealand (also in opposition) to bring down the Australian government. This allegation is based on the fact that if Barnaby Joyce lost his seat, his Coalition's one-seat majority would evaporate and it could cost it the government.

Pauline Hanson Just Walked Into The Senate Wearing A Burqa, No, Really

The leader of far right Australian political party One Nation, Pauline Hanson, entered the parliament dressed in a black burqa on Thursday. Hanson in the Senate on Thursday. Mick Tsikas / AAPIMAGE Senators reacted in open-mouthed shock as Hanson, who is not Muslim, walked into the chamber with her One Nation colleague Brian Burston shortly after the beginning of Question Time. "What on earth," one senator said, as others sighed and complained to the Senate president, Stephen Parry. Hanson, who is vocally anti-Muslim and anti-immigration, warned in her inaugural speech for her second stint in the Senate in 2016 that "we are now in danger of being swamped by Muslims whose culture is incompatible with our own". Parry said he had been advised by the clerk that Hanson's identity was known before she entered the chamber and he would "reflect on her mode of dress" as questions continued. Hanson later removed the burqa in order to ask a question about whether the government would ..

Overseas Voters Are Seriously Concerned About Australia’s Same-Sex Marriage Postal Survey

William West / AFP / Getty Images The Australian Bureau of Statistics does not expect to have a solution for overseas Australians who want to participate in the same-sex marriage postal survey until Aug. 22 — just two days before enrolment closes. The government announced the unprecedented national postal survey last week as a last-ditch effort to keep its election promise of giving the Australian people a say on same-sex marriage. But the short time frame handed to the ABS to prepare for the vote has left Australians living overseas increasingly worried it will be difficult or impossible for them to participate. One man was told, "We have received no information about this at all" when he emailed the ABS asking for information about overseas voting the day after the survey was announced. Now, staff at the dedicated information hotline set up for the survey are telling overseas voters that it’s anticipated more information will be provided to them by Aug. 22. The electoral rolls fo..

As Leak Probes Abound, Tillerson Promotes Diplomat Who Passed Classified Info To AIPAC

Paul J. Richards / AFP / Getty Images As the Trump administration widens its crackdown on unauthorized leaks to the press, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has promoted a diplomat who provided classified information to an influential pro-Israel lobbying organization that resulted in espionage charges. David Satterfield, a long time Middle East hand with extensive experience in the region, has been named acting assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs, a State Department official told BuzzFeed News. In 2005, federal prosecutors said Satterfield provided classified national security secrets to a top lobbyist for the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a powerful special interest group known simply as AIPAC. The accusation was included in an indictment that charged two former AIPAC employees, Steven Rosen and Keith Weissman, and a former Pentagon official, Lawrence Franklin, under the Espionage Act with illegally trafficking in classified information. Satterfield avoi..

German Vice-Chancellor Was Shocked Trump Did Not Condemn Charlottesville Racists

Hannibal Hanschke / Reuters BERLIN — The German Vice-Chancellor, Sigmar Gabriel, said he was shocked President Donald Trump failed to condemn the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, adding that it was full of "neo-Nazis, the KKK, and people that helped Trump get elected." His remarks came during an exclusive interview with BuzzFeed News on Wednesday, during which he also suggested Trump withheld his criticism because "One of his advisors, Steve Bannon, is an actual right-wing extremist." “I was shocked that the American president did not call out the perpetrators in Charlottesville," Gabriel said. "We can never trivialize those people. You have to call things by their names and that was right-wing terrorism." Gabriel, who is a member of the left-leaning Social Democratic Party in the coalition government led by Chancellor Angela Merkel, has been attacked over Germany's intake of refugees, which has seen the country welcome more than one million since 2015. Last year, he ..
