Greta Bellamacina, a 28-year-old British director, said she was denied entry from Cannes Film Festival, where her film “Hurt By Paradise” was screening, because she had turned up with her four-month-old son. Bellamacina told the Guardian that the festival initially refused her child entry to the site, but were eventually allowed into the accreditation area after “much stressful debate.” She said she was then told her stroller would have to be sent through a different entrance and that her child would require a delegate’s pass which costs around $335. She said she offered to pay the fee but then was told that it would take 48 hours to process her request and was asked to leave the site, according to the Guardian. Bellamacina’s film is about a young single mother trying to balance her life as a writer and was screening in the market section of the festival. Cannes organizers said they are seeking more information about the incident. (📷: Getty, @gretabellamacina)

Taiwan’s parliament voted to pass a bill legalizing same-sex marriage on Friday, almost two years after the country’s constitutional court ruled that the existing law, which defined marriage as between a man and a woman, was unconstitutional. This makes Taiwan the first country in Asia to legalize same-sex marriage. The decision was met with cheers by the tens of thousands of people who had gathered in the rain outside the parliamentary building in the capital, Taipei. Lawmakers had debated between three bills, passing the most progressive of the three, which was the only one to use the word “marriage” as opposed to “same-sex family relationships” or “same-sex unions.” The law will go into effect after Taiwan’s President Tsai Ing-wen passes it into law, according to the BBC. “On May 17th, 2019 in #Taiwan, #LoveWon. We took a big step towards true equality, and made Taiwan a better country,” Tsai tweeted after the vote 🇹🇼🌈 (📷: Getty, AP, Reuters)

Hundreds of people in Havana, Cuba, held their own pride march on Saturday after the government canceled the official march, which was going on its 12th year. More than 100 Cubans took part in the unauthorized march before being stopped by dozens of security officials. At least three activists were arrested by plainclothes police, the New York Times reported, while others were ordered to disperse. Earlier in the week, the state-run Center for Sex Education said in a Facebook post that the Conga Against Homophobia had been canceled on orders from the Ministry of Health due to “new tensions in the international and regional context that directly and indirectly affect our country and have tangible and intangible impacts in the normal development of our daily life and the implementation of the policies of the Cuban state.” The center called the alternative parade a “provocation.” Tensions have risen between Cuba and the United States since Washington threw its support behind Venezuela’s opposition leader, Juan Guaidó, and Havana, a close ally of Venezuela, maintained support for President Nicolás Maduro, according to the Washington Post.

For the first time ever, Ireland has invoked a 1999 immigration act, banning an American pastor accused of homophobic and anti-Semitic hate speech from entering the country on the grounds of national security or public policy. Ireland’s minister of justice and equality said on Sunday that he had banned Arizona-based pastor Steven L. Anderson, who was due to preach in Dublin on May 26 “in the interests of public policy.” Anderson announced in 2009 he hated US President Barack Obama and prayed for his death. He has called for the US government to exterminate all gay people and praised the gunman who murdered 49 people in the mass shooting at the Pulse gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida, in 2016, according to the BBC. His Faithful Word Baptist Church has been labeled a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center and by the Anti-Defamation League, according to the New York Times. This is the first time that the exclusion order has been invoked in Ireland since it was created 20 years ago. (📷: Getty)

Protests erupted on Sunday in Kashmir with thousands of people taking to the streets to demand justice for the alleged rape of a three-year-old girl who was reportedly lured into a school bathroom by her neighbor, according to the AP. The girl was hospitalized in critical condition on May 8 but her condition has stabilized. Officials say they have arrested the suspect in Sumbal town and a fast-track investigation is under way. The suspect’s family had said he was 13 years old, but protesters are disputing the age as they believe the family produced a fake school-issued birth certificate to save him from a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. Police are questioning the school principal who issued the birth certificate. (📷: Getty, AP)

Jean-Jacques Savin, a 72-year-old French former paratrooper, has successfully crossed the Atlantic Ocean in a barrel he built himself, which was propelled only by the currents. Savin set off from the Canary Islands on December 26 last year and arrived at the Dutch Caribbean island of St. Eustatius on May 2, after 127 days and six hours at sea. He made the 2,930-mile (4,715 km) journey in his handmade barrel, which measured about 10-feet (3 meter) long and seven-feet (2 meter) wide, that included a small kitchen, a bed, space for storage, and portholes for him to look out into the water. The design was built to protect against the waves and attacks from orca whales. He survived on fish he caught and used solar power for a tracker on board to update his followers on Facebook on his progress, CNN reported. He also dropped markers on his way to help an international marine observatory organization study ocean currents, according to CNN. 🌊🇫🇷 (📷: AP, Getty)

Thousands of moms in Mexico led protests across the country on Mexican Mother’s Day on Friday to demand authorities find their missing children or at least give some indication of what happened to them. Some 40,000 people have gone missing since the country’s drug war in 2006, and very few have ever been found, according to the AP. Human remains in clandestine mass graves are usually not identified, which has left some families with no information about their loved ones for more than a decade. Marches took place across Mexico City, Veracruz, Monterrey, and Ciudad Victoria, with mothers chanting “Children, listen, your mother is still fighting,” in Mexico City. (📷: AP)

Thousands of Welsh people held a demonstration in Cardiff to call for independence on Saturday. Organizers of the march, All Under One Banner Cymru, said it was the first march for independence in Welsh history. Some of the protesters have been lifelong supporters of independence, while others say they have been converted by Brexit and austerity. Organizers told WalesOnline that several groups believe that since the vote for the UK to leave the European Union, several groups believe that Wales and its people would have a better future as an independent nation outside the UK. According to a recent poll by ITV Wales, 12% of Welsh people support self-government 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 (📷: Getty)

Mena Mangal, a former Afghan TV presenter and an adviser to the country’s government, has been shot dead by at least one unidentified gunman while she was on her way to work on Saturday, just days after she wrote on social media that she was receiving death threats. The shooting occurred in broad daylight on Saturday morning in the capital of Kabul, Afghan officials said. No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, and police have launched an investigation, saying that it’s unclear whether her murder was a terror act or the result of a personal dispute. A former TV presenter, Mangal was a cultural adviser for the country’s lower house of parliament and an advocate for women’s rights, running popular social media pages that discussed the rights of Afghan women to work and for Afghan girls to go to school, according to VOA News.

When photographer Sebastião Salgado returned from an assignment in East Africa to take over family land in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil in 1994, he was devastated to find that the tropical forest he remembered as a child was gone, with only 0.5% of the land covered in trees. Then his wife, Lélia, had an idea to replant the forest. The couple set up Instituto Terra, an environmental organization for this purpose in 1998 and proceeded to work with employees and volunteers to restore the 1,750-acre forest. As of January 2019, they had planted more than 2.5 million seedlings from 297 native species. The property is now a federally recognized nature preserve and a nonprofit organization that raises millions of tree seedlings in its nursery, trains young ecologists and welcomes visitors, according to the Smithsonian 🌳🇧🇷(📷: Instituto Terra)

At least 10 people have been killed and 20 people have been injured in a bomb explosion outside a major Sufi shrine in Lahore, Pakistan, on Wednesday morning.

Data Darbar is a major monument in Lahore and is attended by hundreds of devotees of Sufism, a strand of Islam that believes in mysticism and nonviolence, daily. An investigation into who was responsible for the bombing is ongoing. (📷: Getty, AP, Reuters)
