UK south-Asian diaspora despairs as India joins Covid red list
With India, Pakistan and Bangladesh travel banned, some UK families are stuck abroad, while others cannot visit frail relatives Coronavirus – latest updatesSee all our coronavirus coverageFor the past 17 months, Saurav Dutt has had to watch from afar as relatives were lost to Covid, ancestral homes were damaged by a typhoon, and the mental toll of isolation, grief and illness led his elderly relatives to question their very existence.He had flights booked for May, but with cases soaring and India on the UK’s travel red list from 23 April, that is no longer an option. “It’s a very worrying time,” Dutt said. “You would think there are a million ways to help from over here, but we’re handcuffed. To deal with these things we need to be there.” Continue reading...

El Mundo/Richard Salvino: Archivo de Guatemala review – perfect balance of sacred and profane
(Naxos)This thoughtful collection of compositions from the Cathedral of Guatemala City archives reimagines a wealth of music made in colonial Latin AmericaOver the last two decades or so the wealth of music that was composed from the 16th century onwards in colonial Latin America has been systematically investigated and performed again. Much of it has been unearthed in cathedrals and missions across Central and South America. Jesuit archives in Bolivia, for instance, were the source for three fascinating discs from Florilegium, and recordings of collections from Ecuador and Brazil have also been released. This disc by the baroque group El Mundo and its director, guitarist Richard Salvino, shifts the focus further north, to what was found in the archives of the cathedral in Guatemala City.

Racist treatment of black and Asian war dead is acknowledged at last | Letters
Readers respond to the Commonwealth War Graves Commission’s report into the unequal commemoration of soldiers in the first world warIt is gratifying that the Commonwealth War Graves Commission will finally apologise, after 100 years, for denying black African soldiers and labourers war graves for their service to the British empire in the first world war (UK inquiry blames ‘pervasive racism’ for unequal commemoration of troops, 21 April). Many people in Britain and Europe will have seen headstones in cemeteries to colonial servicemen from the British West Indies Regiment, the South African Native Labour Corps, the Chinese Labour Corps, and Indians, alongside others, and will wonder what the fuss is. These troops were considered Christian and given the privilege of a headstone by the commission.But on the African continent, where there was fighting in east and west Africa, you will not see any native African soldiers from the King’s African Rifles, the West Africa Frontier Force and the Carrier Corps given a headstone, as they were considered “heathen” and “uncivilised”. There should be at least 200,000 war graves to these men. It is important that the commission creates new headstones so that the racist construct that the war was a “white man’s war”, where only white soldiers paid the ultimate price, can finally be laid to rest.

George Floyd and the need for UK police reform | Letters
Stephen Black on why the police complaints system needs to change fundamentally and Ruth Baker on how a video by a 17-year-old was crucial to the caseWhile the guilty verdict in the George Floyd case is to be welcomed, we are very far from the culture change required if policing with consent is to become a reality (Derek Chauvin found guilty of murder of George Floyd, 21 April). In numerous incidents in the US and the UK, overzealous actions of the police have been captured for all to see, but have you ever seen or heard a fellow officer intervening or condemning them? In the George Floyd incident, two other officers did not regard the restraint as unlawful and made little attempt to prevent or advise their fellow officer.Families often have to wait many years for incidents of death in custody to be heard by the UK coroner’s court, and how many times has the verdict included the message that evidence presented by the police is simply not believed?

Florentino Pérez: the emperor who wanted more but lost for once | Sid Lowe
The Real Madrid president had been working on the project for three years but it fell apart quickly and is now threatening his legacyThere was a moment during the first and last television appearance Florentino Pérez made as the figurehead of a project he had been working towards for three years when he was asked how long he would be president of the super league. “Until they kick me out,” he replied. There was a laugh from president and presenter, something revealing in that reaction: this is not a man to give up power nor one easily removed, a man rarely denied. But, as it turned out, the correct answer was: about 24 hours.Pérez doesn’t give many interviews – “I prefer to have informal relationships with journalists,” he said once – but the following day he spoke to L’Equipe. Asked if he feared some of the other 11 clubs involved might back out, he replied: “No.” By the time his words were published, just before 8.30pm on Tuesday, theyalready were backing out. That night Pérez didn’t turn up for a radio interview with El Larguero; he was, they said, in a meeting, trying to hold it all together. Continue reading...
