New Zealand is unlikely to stop having Queen Elizabeth as its head of state anytime soon, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said, in comments following Oprah Winfrey's interview with Prince Harry and Meghan. Ardern was asked by a reporter if the interview, and the picture painted of the royal family, had given her pause around New Zealand's constitutional ties with the royals. A former British colony, New Zealand retains Queen Elizabeth as its constitutional monarch and head of state.
The U.S. Justice Department has arrested another alleged associate of the anti-government Oath Keepers militia over his alleged role in storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6.

In a former royal forest, tree surgeons on Monday began felling centuries-old oak trees which will be used to rebuild the wooden-framed spire of Notre-Dame de Paris after it was destroyed by fire. The lead-coated spire, which for more than 150 years had defined the central Paris sky line, was consumed by the blaze in April 2019, collapsing through the stone vaulted roof to the tears and gasps of distraught onlookers. President Emmanuel Macron announced last summer that the 96-metre (315 ft) spire would be reconstructed as originally designed by Eugene Viollet-le-Duc in the 19th century, launching the hunt for the 1,000 oaks required to build the spire and the frame of the cathedral's transept.
A Brazilian Supreme Court judge on Monday annulled the criminal convictions against former leftist president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, a move that could allow the popular politician to run in next year's presidential election. In a surprise decision, Justice Edson Fachin said that a court in the southern city of Curitiba did not have the authority to try Lula on corruption charges and that he must be retried in federal courts in the capital Brasilia. The ruling, which will be reviewed by the full Supreme Court, restored Lula's political rights, potentially blowing open the 2022 presidential race, when right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro is expected to seek reelection.

Poles took to the streets on Monday to mark International Women's Day, in demonstrations around the country that took on added significance months after a constitutional court banned almost all abortions. In Warsaw, several dozen protesters brandishing placards with slogans such as "I am a feminist warrior" gathered in the city centre, where they were outnumbered by a heavy police presence. Previous protests organised by the Women's Strike movement, which opposes the tightening of restrictions regarding abortion, have been marred by violence, with the police criticised for heavy-handed tactics.

World Athletics president Sebastian Coe told AFP Monday he wants an organisation in which a woman can aspire to the top job and one that retains far more female athletes as coaches and officials.
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA), which awards the Golden Globes, has already taken steps to make good on the group’s onstage promise at its Feb. 28 telecast to add Black members to its ranks, but some longtime observers say it may be too late for the group to make meaningful change. The 40-second statement at the Globes by HFPA president Ali Sar, former president Meher Tatna and Helen Hoehne, a member from Germany, followed a Feb. 21 Los Angeles Times exposé highlighting the fact that the 87-member HFPA has no Black members, as well as a Feb. 26 demand to diversify its membership from Time’s Up. “I know inside (HFPA) they are completely panicked, the people on the stage are panicked. They don’t know what to do,” one HFPA member who asked not to be named told TheWrap. Reps for the HFPA did not respond to multiple requests for comment for this story. The L.A. Times is hardly the first to examine the lack of HFPA diversity as well as other questionable practices at the organization. TheWrap called out the lack of Black members as long ago as 2013, when a Black applicant from the U.K. was rejected by...Read original story Inside Golden Globes’ Diversity Promise: Too Late for Meaningful Change?
