    On Sunday [[Sudan|Sudanese]] former president [[Omar al-Bashir]] made his first public appearance since his ouster in April. He was escorted through the capital, {{w|Khartoum}}, to the prosecutor's office, where he was charged with corruption<!--Independent-->. This comes barely a week after violent attacks on the protesters that still throng the area.

    According to Prosecutor Alaa al-Din Abdallah, the specific charges included possession of foreign currency and accepting gifts in an unofficial manner.<!--Independent-->

    Sudan's military removed Bashir from his position April 11 of this year after months of citizen protests against his 30-year rule. At first, the military promised to form an interim government and to schedule fresh elections in three years.<!--Independent--> Protesters demanded a more prompt transition to civilian rule.

    On June 3, men in military uniforms attacked the protester camps. The {{w|Central Committee of Sudanese Doctors}} reports that 118 protesters have been killed as of June 12, and Sudan's military council reports 61. Human Rights Watch reports protesters being whipped and raped.<!--India Today-->

    Representatives of Sudan's military council say they did not order the attacks but were rather responding to allegations that drugs were being sold.<!--Guardian-->

    It all began by being a victim of white collar crime, which began in 2014 and is still now on going, What I am going to reveal began with criminality aided by my own solicitor who knew either directly or indirectly via the senior partner of whom he was associated with, After being swindled by my now neighbour who is the party known to my solicitor, along with the joint own his father, This was never disclosed to me and it starts a long list of illegal infringements perpetrated against me, which is a conflict of interests, I was assured by my solicitor who told me of an enquiry to develop property which I owned, after approaching them to deal with legal threats I was receiving with regard to development of the roof area where I lived as I am the freeholder and held the development rights and wasn't interested in giving permission for various reasons, After outlining to the original solicitor who drew up the leases in order for my ex wife and myself to take ownership of the two separate flats under the same roof as part of the agreement I had sole ownership of the freehold, I was passed onto another solicitor as she my previous solicitor was semi retired, when I went to see the solicitor I was passed onto before I had chance to say anything he said he had an enquiry with regards to a party wishing to buy the flat above but only if I would give permission for a loft conversion to take place, I immediately said No! he said that he was aware of my years of misery at the hands of the current owners and that these interested parties could not be more respectable I he strongly recommended I think about because I could not get any better neighbours as they were wealthy white collar professionals the father a chartered accountant and the son a lawyer of who the flat was intended for, He went on to show me the farther in side the Wembley dressing room with the then current England manager Roy Hodgson, After telling him I was Un-well due to years of torment by the current owners who tried to drive me out in order to buy my flat to add to their portfolio of properties as they were developers and landlords, I also said how i had live a some what of a cloistered life due to physical and mental ill health and on top of which I was inexperienced in these matters, He my solicitor assured me he would oversee and protect my interests, This could not have been any further from the truth in its entirety, All which was the beginning of a long road of misery which was to follow and is still on going to this day, I contacted the legal ombudsman which I was told would take 6 to 8 weeks in all it took 1 year and 52 days and to my surprise they found in favour of my solicitor who I thought was incompetent but I now know he was and is corrupt, I have been subjected to torment and anguish by being made a victim of noise from the flat above at all hours of the day and night which led to my stress levels going through he roof and caused me to have migraine and the double vision and depression leaving me on anti depressants to compound on top of the physical pain I was suffering because of an industrial accident and the subsequent arthritis that I also suffer from, I was flooded out 10 times from the upstairs and their refusal to compensate led me to having to try and get the compensation through the small claims court but due to the phycological attack on me within my own home I was unable to function and due to the double vision had to rely on a third party who assured me he could deal with the requirements of the court to submit the paper work and present my overwhelming evidence to get the compensation for the damage caused by my neighbours, I faith in him was quashed when not only messing up the submission of the papers on time but the subsequent appeal that followed as he had submitted it on line and apparently should have been in hard copy via the postal system, but at the hearing my neighbours had submitted a counter claim which I can prove to be fraudulent and I was not allowed to be represented by the party who had promised to help me and i was told I had to speak for myself this was after the judge had asked the opinion of my neighbours whether I was capable of conducting my presentation and they said I was, This I thought was strange that a judge should ask an unqualified bias part if they thought I was well enough, Anyway all I managed to think of due to the shock of the bias decision for me to continue was to state that there had Been a conflict of interest as my solicitor and my neighbours had been in direct contact, The judge asked the farther who spoke and claimed that there was only contact through emails only, This was an act of perjury on top of the fraudulent claim which was Un-substantiated by the lack of any proof offered in the form of bills and receipts, I have evidence in the form of emails that my then solicitor had sent informing Me of the contact that had taken place that had been denied in this act of perjury, I have a number of issues with the bias ombudsman the current one is six months ago I found evidence of personal association with my solicitors in the form of a wedding invitation sent to my neighbours that was carelessly put into the recycling bin its for was an embossed invitation on perspex that I saw to remove as it was no recyclable on reading this I contacted them and was told that the file was closed and I would have to write to the solicitor and put my findings and seek an answer this process would allow them 8 weeks to reply I did this and after 12 weeks having still not heard I re contacted the ombudsman who said that there was a 6 month waiting lift the six months is now up and I am still waiting to hear from them, I have since 2015 been subjected to this noises disturbance and on Christmas eve began keeping a log of the outrageous behaviour felt out by my so called respectable neighbours, I have contacted the council office who deal with anti social neighbours, I found them to be obtuse and no help at all, They came across like representatives of my tormenting neighbours making a case for the sound proofing which was part of the money swindled out of me saying that the sound proofing was up to the correct standard but when I pointed out the technical details and the deficiencies of who it was installed He the man from the council said it was't his remit but up to that point he had made it seem it was, I spoke to councillor Lorna Russell from Camden council who told me to submit to her emails I had sent Ms Tulip Siddiq the MP for camden council she said she would get back to me which she did and in the communication in email form told me either Tulip of one of her team would contact me this has never happened I send emails even day and have done so virtual non stop for hundreds of times, But hear nothing at all from any of them, I have spoken to local police when false allegations were made against me and when they called to see me I relayed my claims and told them mine wasn't hearsay but I have actual proof which to date all I have told this too are not interested in viewing it, They are happy to take the word of habitual liars which I can show proof of several times over in an assorted number of ways, I spent two hours on the phone talking to the fraud squad and after completing that supposition I received an email stating that after reviewing this it is being recommended for further investigation and was being passed on to the Metropolitan police, what I got was a disgrace 2 uniformed constables who turned up with out an appointment at my door one Sunday with a preconceived decision to take no action and to tell me it was a civil case and not criminal which is quite obviously criminal, more recently I have written to the Labour complaints and an unknown recipient because all I was given to the identity was the complaints Team? they say Its not there business, I have gone down every avenue open to bring this to public awareness, The list include local police, a local Liberal councillor Flick Rey, I have written to Jeremy Corbyn, and even the serious crime squad because I have drawn the obvious conclusion that My MP and her underlings are corrupt, Which was confirmed on the 15 May 2019 when a Labour canvasser called at my house to show mr the leaflet regarding the labour slogan the they would reunite and bring the country together, After my initial scepticism she mentioned Ms Tulip Siddiq was here and would I like to speak to her I said I would but I thought she wouldn't want to speak to me at that point she was just going to pass my gate we both beckoned her to enter, I told her that there was serious corruption in her council and I had written hundreds of emails which she denied any knowledge of reporting that my civil rights were non existent and the I had the same status as a slave who has no civil rights, I told her of the criminality I had been subjected to which include making ill because of the years I had be subjected to criminality in numerous forms and I would like a public enquiry like seen in the News of the World enquiry open public and transparent as there was serious corruption which is nothing less than fascism criminals in position of influence and power and I had evidence which would that to be the case and would open a can of worms that would also be the start to ask other further obvious questions, I have this conversation recorded on my cc tv with sound her casual attitude I found quite unusual as would a phycologist were they to examine the contents of that conversation, She took my phone number and gave the impression she would look into it, The following day I sent an email asking for her to confirm that she had full control of the in coming mail and asked for confirmation I have not received any communication at all, my neighbours are above the law they have left evidence that anyone else would be convicted on my civil right to be treated equally under the law are still being violated and with the knowledge of a fascist pretending to be a socialist, and the D-Day landings where so many died as did million of that generation to preserve all of our civil rights, The shocking revelation is that the main player are Jewish and due to their status are no doubtlessly know to the group who continue to accuse labour members of anti semitism, this is hypocrisy of the worst kind because what has happened to me doesn't even have a known name for which is anti gentile/Christian and I have paid them for the criminality which has defiled me in my own home and for years by people who have a public mask of respectability, To end this report and hope that I am contacted by legitimate people who will conduct a public and transparent enquiry, I am happy as I have told the police and My Mp and the serious crime squad who said i should report it to the local police after telling them I had already been down that and all the other avenues but such is the level of protection that I continually keep coming up against For Wikilcnks, use {{tl|w}} template, example,

  • Japanese owner's account of oil tanker incident differs from U.S. account

    Rubbish computer: added Category:Gulf of Oman using HotCat


    {{tasks|npov|re-review}}
    {{Japan}}
    {{date|June 15, 2019}}

    On Friday, the {{w|Japan|Japanese}} owner of the oil tanker ''Kokuka Courageous'' issued a statement about Thursday's on-board explosions inconsistent with statements, about the incident, by the [[United States|U.S.]] {{w|U.S. Department of State|State Department}}.

    <!--This paragraph provides background to the Japanese statement and should perhaps be the fourth paragraph overall.-->The explosions on the ''Kokuka Courageous'' and another tanker, the [[Norway|Norwegian]] ''Front Altair'', occurred on Thursday in the {{w|Gulf of Oman}}, near the {{w|Strait of Hormuz}}. Nearly a third of all oil transported by sea passes through the Strait of Hormuz, which connects the {{w|Persian Gulf}} to the Gulf of Oman and thereby the {{w|Indian Ocean}}. {{w|Iran}} borders the north side of the strait and both gulfs.<!-- CNBC mentions the one-third figure; the geography I'm treating as "obvious" in the sense of "Paris is in France" --> Both tankers issued distress calls, and crew abandoned ship. Responders to the emergency included the oil tanker ''Hyundai Dubai'', the {{w|US Navy}} guided missile destroyer {{w|USS Bainbridge (DDG-96)|USS ''Bainbridge''}}, and various Iranian military vessels.

    According to the {{w|U.S. Department of Defense}} (USDoD), after the crew of the ''Front Altair'' were rescued by the ''Hyundai Dubai'', Iranian military vessels surrounded the ''Hyundai Dubai'' and demanded the rescuees be turned over to them for transport to Iran, and the captain "felt like he had no choice but to comply". A spokesperson for {{w|International Tanker Management}} <!--evidently management of these vessels is separate from ownership--> said the ''Front Altair''&zwj;'s 23 crew were "safe and accounted for". By the USDoD account, as the ''Bainbridge'' approached the ''Kokuka Courageous'' an Iranian military vessel also approached and asked to take the ''Kokuka Courageous''&zwj;'s crew on board, but the owner of the ''Kokuka Courageous'' told them not to go with the Iranians, so they went with the ''Bainbridge''.

    <!--This paragraph needs to be the second paragraph because it is the crux of the article.-->A statement on Friday by Yutaka Katada, the president of the Japanese company,<!--the company name?--> which owns ''Kokuka Courageous'', said the crew's account suggested the tanker was struck by something airborne.

    {{w|U.S. Central Command}} stated the evacuation of ''Kokuka Courageous'' followed discovery of an unexploded {{w|limpet mine}} on the hull, and released a video allegedly showing Iranians removing an unexploded limpet mine from the hull. {{w|US Secretary of State}} {{w|Mike Pompeo}} said "It is the assessment of the United States government that the Islamic Republic of Iran is responsible for the attacks [...] based on intelligence, the weapons used, the level of expertise needed to execute the operation, recent similar Iranian attacks on shipping and the fact that no proxy group operating in the area has the resources and proficiency to act with such a high degree of sophistication". Additional evidence was not provided.

    <!--This should be the third paragraph, to show what the company president said. The remaining paragraphs are fine in their respective orders after the three highlighted paragraphs.-->According to Katada, "The crew are saying it was hit with a flying object. They say something came flying toward them, then there was an explosion, then there was a hole in the vessel[...] Then some crew witnessed a second shot." He also noted, "To put a bomb on the side is not something we are thinking [...] If it's between an explosion and a penetrating bullet, I have a feeling it is a penetrating bullet. If it was an explosion, there would be damage in different places, but this is just an assumption or a guess."

    The incidents occurred as Japanese Prime Minister {{w|Shinzo Abe}} was in Iran, engaged in talks toward easing diplomatic tensions between Iran and the United States. The Foreign Minister of Iran, Javad Zarif, {{w|twitter|tweeted}} of the incidents, "Suspicious doesn't begin to describe what likely transpired this morning. [...] That the US immediately jumped to make allegations against Iran—w/o a shred of factual or circumstantial evidence—only makes it abundantly clear that the #B_Team is moving to a #PlanB: Sabotage diplomacy—including by @AbeShinzo—and cover up its #EconomicTerrorism against Iran."<!--The Iranian foreign ministers Twitter account should be listed in the sources.-->

    Oil prices rose several percent after the incidents.

  • Media outlets issue retractions in Dutch teenagers non-euthanasia death

    Green Giant: Now abandoned


    {{abandoned|June 16, 2019|userspace=}}

    {{tasks|news|npov|mos|re-review}}{{Netherlands}}
    {{date|June 7, 2019}}
    __NOTOC__
    <!--lede-->
    Media outlets in the [[United States]] and [[United Kingdom]] have ordered retractions Friday correcting initial reports 17-year-old {{w|Noa Pothoven}} of {{w|Arnhem}} death was through the [[Netherlands]]' [[euthanasia]] procedure contradicting the official death certificates cause of death to be self-inflicted dehydration and starvation. Pothoven's death was overseen by medical professionals but they did not prescribe euthanasia drugs nor intervene during her {{w|suicide}}.

    <!--Background-->
    According to Dutch law, an individual can receive euthanasia drugs by medical professionals at age 12 with parental or guardian permission. Individuals between 16 and 17 years old may also receive the euthanasia drugs with parents or guardians being notified. Pothoven did seek the euthanasia drugs from medical professionals in [[The Hague]], Netherlands, but was turned away.<!--NYT & BBC-->

    Family members have reported that she was an alleged [[Sex crimes|sexual assault]] victim suffering from depression, {{w|Posttraumatic stress disorder|post traumatic stress disorder}} (PTSD), and {{w|Anorexia nervosa|Anorexia}}. Pothoven was allegedly sexually assaulted during a school party at age 11 and was later allegedly raped by two men at age 14.<!--BBC Noa's story para: 1--> The events and mental health issues Pothoven encountered after the alleged traumatic experiences were in Pothoven's award winning autobiography published in 2018 called ''Winnen of leren''.

    Pothoven used social media during her suicide to document her decision, acknowledge it could take as long as 10 days, and her preparations preventing hospitalization through an advanced directive.<!--The Independent-->

    Her sister Isa Pothoven<!--BBC Noa Story para: 9--> had reportedly said, "You deserve a lot better, but Noa, go to sleep ... We will have to let go of you," <!--NYT para: 12 & BBC --> during the suicide. Dutch media outlets reported Pothoven she was unresponsive to external stimuli by May 31. On Sunday at 2:40 {{w|Central European Summer Time|local time}} (0040 {{w|UTC}}) a doctor pronounced her dead issuing the official death certificate.<!--NYT-->

    <!--Meat-->
    Within the United States, it was incorrectly reported had died using the Netherland's euthanasia laws rather than reporting physicians failed to intervene during her suicide. {{w|Politico}}'s Naomi O’Leary corrected the mis-information Wednesday with a [[Twitter]] statement reading, "A 17-year-old rape victim was NOT &#91;euthanized&#93; in the Netherlands. @euronews @Independent @DailyMailUK @dailybeast are all wrong. It took me about 10 mins to check with the reporter who wrote the original Dutch story. Noa Pothoven asked for euthanasia and was refused".<!--BBC-->

    {{w|The Independent}} issued the statement, "Clarification: The original version of this story stated that Pothoven’s death was a result of legal euthanasia. However, it is unclear whether medical staff assisted her death and The Independent is seeking further information. 05/06/19" with a factually correct article as of Wednesday.<!--The Independent see very bottom-->

    The [[BBC]] published a comprehensive article Wednesday where the reporters addressed the prior inaccuracy with, "The story was reported by at least one BBC international outlet and the "fake news" went as far as Pope Francis's social media feed."<!--BBC Noa's story para: 11--> [[Pope Francis]] subsequently issuing a statement over Twitter saying, "Euthanasia and assisted suicide are a defeat for all. We are called never to abandon those who are suffering, never giving up but caring and loving to restore hope."<!--NYT-->

    The Pothoven family released a statement about the miss-information, "We, parents of Noa Pothoven, are deeply saddened by the death of our daughter. Noa had chosen not to eat and drink anymore. We would like to emphasize that this was the cause of her death. She died in our presence last Sunday. We kindly ask everyone to respect our privacy so we as a family can mourn."<!--BBC-->

    <!--US cases-->
    With Pothoven's high-profile case, the debate over {{w|Assisted suicide in the United States|physician assisted suicide}} was amplified when [[Maine]]'s legislature passed a bill Monday allowing individuals with terminal diseases to seek and receive euthanasia starting at 18 years old. The bill requires two oral and one request in writing for the euthanasia treatment with two physician opinions and at least two days until the euthanasia drugs are distributed. {{w|US Republican Party|Republican}} Governor Janet Mills as of Friday Mills has not indicated if she will sign the bill into law within 10 business days since Monday.<!--CNN-->

    Maine's law requires a {{w|Psychiatry|psychiatric}} and {{w|Psychology|psychological}} opinion ruling out individuals with depression or other conditions that may impair their decision making capacity for euthanasia.<!--CNN--> Given Pothoven's alleged history of suicide attempts, depression, PTSD, and anorexia, if she had been a resident of Maine, she would not have been eligible for euthanasia under this law.<!--CNN minor analysis but correct under the law AZO-->

  • Scientists swipe new shrews with all-natural earthworm bait

    Green Giant: Abandoned?


    {{abandoned|June 16, 2019|userspace=}}

    {{tasks|mos|re-review}}{{Biology}}
    {{date|June 7, 2019}}

    In findings published on Thursday in the ''{{w|Journal of Mammology}}'', scientists from the {{w|Natural History Museum of Utah|Natural History Museum of}} [[Utah]] and {{w|University of Utah}} report the discovery of two new species of large, hopping rodent, ''Rhynchomys labo'' and ''Rhynchomys mingan'', in the mountains of the [[Philippines]]. The animals appeared, says lead scientist Eric Rickart, when they switched out the peanut butter bait for earthworms.<!--Eureka-->

    Rickart describes the rodents, variously called "shrew-rats," "mice," and "tweezer-beaked hopping rats", as moving and resembling small {{w|kangaroos}}, with large hind legs and feet. "They have long, delicate snouts," he says, "and almost no chewing teeth." Behaviorally, they scout pathways on the forest floor and then run through them looking for earthworms to eat.<!--Eureka-->

    Rickart says the scientists knew the rodents were there but couldn't trap one. "In the late 1980s we were doing standard mammalogy surveys and using standard baits that most rodents really like: a combination of peanut butter and slices of fried coconut. It was really attractive bait, it makes your mouth water," but although most rodents become voracious in the face of peanut butter, these specimens didn't seem interested. When offered meatier earthworm fare, however, Rickart said, it "slurped it up like a kid eating spaghetti." <!--Eureka-->

    "Once we began baiting the traps with live, wriggling earthworms, we discovered that these little animals are common and widespread," says co-author Larry Heaney. The species described in the paper are only two of many, the scientists reported. According to Heaney, the mountain habitats in the Philippines are predisposed to prompt the development of new species, with diversity increasing with elevation.<!--Eureka-->

    Heaney also notes the deforestation in the Philippines and its effect on the rest of the area: "If you don't have an intact watershed and forest up in the mountains, you're going to have massive floods and landslides, because the water floods off instead of getting absorbed into mossy ground cover."<!--Eureka-->

    The genus ''Rhynchomys'' is Greek for "snout" and "mouse," in reference to the rodents' long muzzles.<!--Eureka--> The species names ''labo'' and ''mingan'' refer to the specific mountains on which each rat was found.

  • Man sets himself on fire outside the White House

  • Toronto's Anime North brings thousands together

    Zanimum: I thought there was Thursday programming, but the official con I guess is only three days.


    {{date|May 31, 2019}}
    [[file:Anime North 2019 C IMG_0444.jpg|right|250px|thumb|Canadian singer and cosplay model Jillea as Charizard.]]

    [[file:Anime North 2019 E IMG_0390.jpg|right|250px|thumb|Voice actor {{w|Alexis Tipton}}.]]
    Many thousands of {{w|anime}} and {{w|manga}} fans descended on the {{w|Toronto Congress Centre}} for {{w|Anime North}}, a fan-run convention launched in 1997. Spread between four venues over three days, May 24 to 26, the event featured {{w|J-pop}} maid idols, voice actors, writers, and more. ''Wikinews'' attended.

    Despite the ample indoor spaces, the parking lot of the Centre is also a hub of activity, with {{w|cosplay|cosplayers}} posing for photos. Attendees were sent running for cover on Saturday, as heavy rains and a severe thunderstorm warning put a damper on festivities.

    The event is organized by a massive team of volunteers, and known for its specialized programming for fans, by fans. On the night of May 25, for example, attendees could catch "{{w|Pokemon}} Biology", "{{w|Kimono}} Obi Tying", and "Underappreciated Sports Anime/Manga."

    {{w|US}} voice actor {{w|Alexis Tipton}} marveled at the growth of the anime industry in the last decade. "Back when I was going as a fan, there wasn't as much anime, so it was easier to know about everything," Tipton observed during a question and answer session. "I'm so overwhelmed by how much there is."

    Tipton held a panel on her career, dubbing anime for US distribution company {{w|Funimation Entertainment}}. While many anime voice actors weren't fans going into the industry, Tipton recalled going to anime conventions with her friends during middle school and high school. Once she was an invited guest, Tipton recalls realizing "oh, I'm not here to just have fun, I'm here to work; I have a set schedule and I can't just, like, you know, go do what I want."

    Early in her career, Tipton was cast as a voice for ''{{w|My Bride is a Mermaid}}'', a role that required singing. Then just 19 years old, she looked at the role as a "chance to face my demons," having questioned her abilities for years. "I was in an extremely competitive [singing musical theatre] program in high school. I had started working at Funimation when I was 19, so I was just barely in college. And so those scars were still like, really fresh. I had a lot of competition and people would find what your perceived weakness was, or what your actual weakness was in the program, and they would take advantage of it. And so I had people trying to make me feel like I couldn't sing my way out of a paper bag, and then I would get so nervous when I would sing that I couldn't support my notes, and so it would just prove them right."

    Tipton was devastated when she got a sinus infection, the week of the audition. "This director doesn't know me, I haven't worked with him, he's going to think that this is what I sound like," she recalls thinking. "I don't know if I had a shot to begin with, but now I really don't have a shot." She was thrilled when she was cast.

    Another voice actor, {{w|Lauren Landa}}, would list Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus as dream roles, when asked at conventions. She was given a chance to audition for the characters years later, when {{w|Viz Media|Vizmedia}} dubbed the first two seasons of {{w|Sailor Moon}}. When she was cast, "I swear to you, I was speechless," she told an audience at her Q&A session.

    Cosplay model and professional singer Jillea attended the Saturday of the convention dressed as {{w|Pokemon}} species Charizard. ''Wikinews'' spoke with her by email, after the event:

    {{WNIQ}} What got you into cosplay modelling?

    :'''Jillea''': My love for cosplay started with the community, what started as a fun hobby I would do periodically quickly became a huge part of my life, and the reason for that being how amazing the cosplay community embraced me and my work. I've always been a creative person, so getting to make my costumes and have people say 'oh my gosh, I love that character!!' got me hooked right away. They're just my people, what can I say, they really make me feel welcomed and I love them for it.

    {{WNIQ}} How did you choose Charizard?

    :'''J''': I'm a 90's baby so you could say I’m a bit of a Pokémon {{wikt|O.G.|OG}}! I had a {{w|Game Boy}} as a kid and my very first purchase was {{w|Pokémon Red}}, solely based on how cool Charizard looked on the cover. Charizard has always been my favourite Pokémon and I can’t resist a challenging cosplay... and the nostalgia!

    {{WNIQ}} What was your favourite part of Anime North?

    :'''J''': This was my very first time attending Anime North and I was blown away! The booths were incredible and unique, every time I turned around I was seeing something different I've never seen at a convention before. Everything was easy to access and I even made use of the Cosplay Recharge station that literally saved the day with their {{w|Hot-melt adhesive|hot glue}}! Extremely friendly environment it will not be my last time back for sure.

    ''Wikinews''&zwj;' Nick Moreau photographed the event.
