A French waiter fired for being “aggressive, rude and disrespectful” says his behaviour wasn’t out of line – he’s just French.

Guillaume Rey, who worked at a Vancouver restaurant on Canada’s Pacific coast, filed a complaint with British Columbia’s Human Rights Tribunal against his former employer, claiming “discrimination against my culture”.

Theresa May stands by adviser who 'outed' Brexit whistleblower

Shahmir Sanni says he was outed by Stephen Parkinson to distract attention from Vote Leave’s spending

The prime minister has “full confidence” in her political adviser Stephen Parkinson after he was accused of outing a whistleblower to distract attention from allegations he made about Vote Leave’s spending during the referendum campaign.

The whistleblower, Shahmir Sanni, says he has endured one of the “most awful weekends” of his life after telling the Observer how Vote Leave channelled money through BeLeave, a group linked to Cambridge Analytica, to get around electoral law.

'Fiery, self-important': the No 10 adviser at centre of outing claim

Stephen Parkinson, close aide to Theresa May, had senior role in Vote Leave campaign

Stephen Parkinson, one of Theresa May’s closest advisers, has benefited more than most from the prime minister’s noted insistence on loyalty, having ascended with her from the Home Office to No 10.

Now a key figure in Downing Street, Parkinson has come to public attention after reporting in the Observer about the official Brexit campaign, Vote Leave, where he was a senior operative.

Businesses face unanswered questions a year from Brexit – sector by sector analysis

With a year to go, Dan Roberts takes a look at the unresolved issues forcing firms to take evasive action

With only a year to go until Britain leaves the EU, a mounting backlog of unresolved problems is causing business to take evasive action – despite government attempts to buy more time with a transition deal.

More than half of large companies have already put emergency contingency plans into action, according to a survey, and in key sectors such as insurance and transport there are warnings of higher prices and disruption for customers if the fragile truce breaks down.

Did Lana Del Rey plagiarise Radiohead? A note-by-note analysis

After Lana Del Rey settles her plagiarism case with Radiohead, composer Ed Newton-Rex shows just how similar their songs Get Free and Creep truly are

By Niko Kommenda

“Lana Del Radiohead”, the internet scoffed recently, after Lana Del Rey’s song Get Free was found to have more than a passing similarity to Radiohead’s breakthrough hit Creep. It was all there: the moody chord changes, the even moodier, downward-turning melody. Radiohead noticed, and requested that they be added to the song’s credits – a dispute that, according to Del Rey, has been brought to an end.

Creep had, of course, been subject to its own plagiarism dispute in the 1990s, with the songwriters Albert Hammond and Mike Hazlewood added to the credits thanks to a similarity with the hit song they wrote for the Hollies, The Air That I Breathe.

Fourth plinth: how a winged bull made of date syrup cans is defying Isis

Michael Rakowitz used 6,000 tin cans to rescue a treasure destroyed by Isis. The Iraqi-American, who once made a work out of Saddam Hussein’s dinner plates, explains why he likes causing trouble

In February 2015, Isis militants videoed themselves drilling the face off one of the commanding stone statues that had guarded the gates of the ancient city of Nineveh for more than a thousand years. The lamassu – winged bulls with serene human faces – were among the most monumental casualties of a spree of destruction that over just a few days reduced many of Iraq’s most precious artefacts to pebbles.

On 28 March, the life-sized “ghost” of one of these fabulous creatures will be unveiled atop the fourth plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square, where it will stand with its back to the National Gallery, gazing south-east past the Foreign Office and the Houses of Parliament towards its spiritual home in the Middle East.

Land degradation threatens human wellbeing, major report warns

More than 3.2bn people are already affected and the problem will worsen without rapid action, driving migration and conflict

Land degradation is undermining the wellbeing of two-fifths of humanity, raising the risks of migration and conflict, according to the most comprehensive global assessment of the problem to date.

The UN-backed report underscores the urgent need for consumers, companies and governments to rein in excessive consumption – particularly of beef – and for farmers to draw back from conversions of forests and wetlands, according to the authors.

From Hidden to In the Mood for Love: why the 2000s are my favourite film decade | Peter Bradshaw

Featuring Coen brothers masterpieces and an astonishing run by Michael Haneke, this was the decade in which film rediscovered its history – and explored its future – thanks to digital technology

For the next fortnight, Guardian film writers will present personal guides to their favourite decade in the movies – subjective and of course arbitrarily conceived eras which, like much criticism, tell you as much about the author as the topic. I have chosen the noughties, the era in which I first started writing about cinema for a living.

Breaking down film history into decades is seductive, if reductive. The 1920s, the silents; the 30s, the talkies and growth of studio pictures, the Hollywood golden age and the Hays code morality; the 40s, the postwar age and the growth of noir; the 50s, the response to TV and the new epics and spectaculars; the 60s, the European new waves, the new independent and underground cinema; the 70s, the decline of the studio system, America’s own auteurist new wave and the arrival of George Lucas; the 80s, the blockbusters, the explosion of VHS and the coming of the franchise movie – III, IV etc; the 90s, the glossy new indie-mainstream films, the rise of Harvey Weinstein’s Miramax and Tarantino, and then the digital and web explosions of the new century …

Stormy Daniels has spoken. It doesn’t look good for Trump – or us | Jill Filipovic

The alleged threats and payoffs to Stormy Daniels are a scandal. But her story should open up another conversation about how we conceive of sex

Stormy Daniels has spoken. It doesn’t look good for our president – or for sex in America.

In an interview with 60 Minutes on Sunday night, Daniels told CNN’s Anderson Cooper that she had a one-night stand with Donald Trump, and agreed to be paid $130,000 for her silence after a man threatened her and her daughter. According to Daniels, a man approached her in a parking lot, “and said to me, ‘Leave Trump alone. Forget the story.’ And he leaned around and looked at my daughter and said, ‘That’s a beautiful little girl, it would be a shame if something happened to her mom.’”

I’m obsessed with mock meat and I’m not even a vegetarian
A plant-based ‘bleeding’ burger, eggs made from water-dwelling algae, milk made from oats? Bring it on

Facon, tofurkey, chickenless tenders – overly processed mock meats have always sounded like punchlines, ludicrously named meat tribute acts. They are essentially the Faux Fighters, Proxy Music and Rolling Clones of the food world. Received opinion holds that if you want meat so badly, you should just eat it. The weird thing is that I have been obsessed with mock meats for a long time. The weirder thing is that I am not even a vegetarian.

For most people, nothing can be weirder than the textures of these oddities. How could they not be, predicated, as they are, on what they are not? But it is the creative ways around such incongruity I find compelling. I like food that answers a challenge. The milk I take in tea has been squeezed out of oats or rice. My childhood was consumed by a fascination about what was in crab sticks, because I knew it wasn’t crab (although it is fish). Later, I felt the same way about Quorn – until a few years ago, the company didn’t exactly shout about the fact that its product is made from mould and grown in vats. But to me, weird just means new and interesting. Weird is my jam.

Britain has lost half its wildlife. Now’s the time to shout about it | Michael McCarthy

Modern farming has wiped out billions of insects and birds. Plans to restore them will only work with public pressure

Ever been on a protest march for the environment? If you’re young and you care about things – if you’re old, for that matter – you may well have been, and I bet I can guess the theme of the demo. It was probably about climate change, and quite right too, global warming being an unparalleled threat to our very existence. It might have been about nuclear power and its expansion; it might perhaps have been aimed at major pollution, or the loss of some local well-loved amenity. But I’ll bet you a pound to a pinch of snuff that it wasn’t about farmland birds, or the disappearance of insects.

No one, young or old, marches in the street to protest about the impoverishment of our countryside; no one hoists banners crying out against the turning of our green fields into sterile wildlife wastelands. Yet in the past 50 years in Britain, through the intensification of agriculture, we have destroyed well over half of our biodiversity, and the populations of birds, butterflies and wild flowers that once gave the landscape such animation and thrilling life have been utterly devastated – the figures are there.

From surfing to tennis, sportswomen still face sexualised media coverage

Stories that objectify female sports stars often run under the guise of female empowerment. But branding some sports as ‘sexy’ means women’s talent is overlooked

Last week a story about surfer Sophie Hellyer challenging the sexist nature of her sport was published across several newspapers. The headlines read that Hellyer was fed up with the overt sexualisation of female surfers, and since ditching a bikini for a wetsuit was no longer getting the same media coverage. Hellyer had been contacted following the new World Surf League rule that prohibits photographers from gratuitously zooming in on women’s bottoms.

On the surface of it, the story read as a backlash against the ubiquitous sexualisation of women in sport – albeit illustrated with full-colour photos of Hellyer emerging from the waves in a bikini. But within hours Hellyer claimed that her words – largely taken from a blogpost she had written the previous year – had been manipulated to suit an agenda, and that the reports were littered with inaccuracies; she says she hasn’t stopped wearing bikinis to compete in either. It is a classic example of media coverage operating under the guise of female empowerment, while ultimately objectifying and denigrating. Meanwhile, sportswomen miss out once again when it comes to recognition of their sporting talent.

Yemen is entering its fourth year of war – when will the suffering end? | Hind Abbas
With millions displaced and disease rife, the human cost is already incalculable. The international community must act

In three years, so many things can happen in a person’s life. A child will start going to nursery, a student can get a bachelor’s degree. In three years, someone can meet the love of their life and get married; someone can start a business and succeed. Imagine what change can happen to a country that is considered the poorest in the Middle East and exhausted by war.

The day that changed the lives of millions of Yemenis was 26 March 2015, when, within three hours, the sky filled with aircraft. People were shocked by what was happening, hoping that when the sun next rose, this would just have been a bad dream. They thought it would only last for a couple of days, but sadly three days passed and there was still war; three weeks passed and there was still war; three months passed and there was still war; and, today, three years will have passed, yet the situation keeps deteriorating.

There are good reasons for ignoring the news | David Mitchell
Wealthy American Erik Hagerman has entirely cut himself off from current affairs following the election of Trump. Here’s why I support him

Did you hear about the rich American who’s cut himself off from all news since Donald Trump was elected? There’s no reason why you should. He wouldn’t have done, if it hadn’t actually been him. His name’s Erik Hagerman and he used to be a Nike executive, but now lives on a pig farm and doesn’t even farm pigs. He just works on his art and goes for coffee and plays guitar and gives interviews to the New York Times. Which presumably he then doesn’t read, so the interviewer could have indulged in a rare consequence-free, easy-to-write hatchet job, but didn’t.

I don’t mean to be snide – things I say neutrally just come out like that. It’s the rhetorical equivalent of people whose faces’ resting expressions look deeply sad or intensely cross, so they have to smile to seem normal (which must cumulatively be depressing or irritating, thus retrospectively giving them temperaments to match their looks). Because, as it happens, I support Erik Hagerman’s life choice.

Joe Root says soul searching needed before second New Zealand Test
  • England captain reflects on defeat at Eden Park
  • Concern over Ben Stokes’ continuing back problems

Before the first Test against New Zealand, Joe Root hinted at changes in the way England were going to go about their business. None were evident at Eden Park. Jimmy Anderson continued to open the bowling with Stuart Broad; the batting was as sturdy as a marshmallow in the first innings and England recorded their tenth defeat in twelve overseas Tests, none of which were won. In their last eight matches abroad they have lost by an innings five times. It must be sinking in that he is not in charge of a multi-talented team.

This is reflected in the goal set by Root on the final day of the Test at Eden Park. “Before play I asked them to show how much it means to play for England and I thought we got that. The character that the guys showed was a step forward.” That may be true but if selected to play for your country, a task that brings honour and a reasonable remuneration there is an assumption that there will be universal commitment to the cause come what may.

World Cup worries XI: key men with cause to fret over Russia 2018

With the finals less than three months away we select an XI who may not make it or be in shape to shine because they are injured or out of favour at their clubs

A metatarsal break, his third in less than a year, means the Bayern Munich goalkeeper has not played since mid-September. Neuer’s style and competency with the ball at his feet were key features of his country’s World Cup win in 2014, meaning Joachim Löw has carefully monitored his No 1’s progress and is confident he will return in April, although this will be after Bayern have won league, leaving him to rely on the Champions League for truly competitive action.

Lewis Hamilton wary of 'rapid' Ferrari for Bahrain Grand Prix
  • F1 driver says Ferrari will have advantages on Bahrain circuit
  • ‘It was not easy to pull away from Raikkonen in early stages’

Lewis Hamilton has warned that he expects Ferrari to be very strong at the next round of the Formula One world championship in Bahrain. Hamilton made his remarks after Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel won the opening race of the season in Australia. He said that although his Mercedes car appeared to be the quicker, Ferrari’s form in Melbourne proved how strong their car is too.

Vettel won the race after taking the lead through a pit stop under the virtual safety car, although Hamilton had led the field from pole. The German stressed afterwards that he believed he had been lucky in how the pit stop played out and that in pace terms Hamilton had the advantage.

TAM, GAM and trades: why MLS is the world's most overcomplicated league

For many fans, football’s beauty lies in its simplicity. So do MLS’s sometimes arcane rules and regulations put people off?

For the past four years, ESPN has conducted an anonymous survey of MLS players. There are always angles and headlines: this time around Giovani dos Santos was voted the most overrated player in the league by his peers. But in amongst the whimsy and trivia a more troublesome statement was served on how MLS is seen even by those on the league’s payroll.

Players were asked whether they truly understand how General Allocation Money (GAM) and Targeted Allocation Money (TAM) works. Only 50% answered that they do. That is likely reflective of the wider (lack of) understanding of the trade rules, too. In fact, so convoluted are the regulations they have become a source of comedy over the years, although some fans fail to see the funny side when their team is overlooked in the allocation order, sending a big name signing to a more illustrious, glamorous franchise. Look at how Clint Dempsey ended up at Seattle despite Portland apparently holding the rights to have the first shot at signing the US international. Fairly or not, the impression is that MLS sometimes makes up the rules as they go along.

Altar rock – is doing a ‘Christian record’ no longer a career killer?
Justin Bieber’s next record is rumoured to have a Christian theme – and other stars, from Chance the Rapper to Stormzy, aren’t afraid to wear their faith on their sleeves

Justin Bieber has been a high-profile member of Hillsong, the evangelical megachurch, and reports suggest his reconnection with his Christian faith will be a strong theme on his comeback album. He is, according to an anonymous source in the Sun, “reshaping his sound so it is more in line with the church’s values and beliefs”. It could be a risky move, but perhaps not as risky as it might once have been.

“We’re reaching a point where, especially with North American artists, less so with UK ones, it’s fine to talk about your faith, especially from a Christian perspective,” says Tshepo Mokoena, UK editor of Noisey, Vice’s music site. “A good example is Chance the Rapper who is hugely successful, isn’t afraid to put [his faith] in his music or talk about it on social media.

What Alan Cumming's role as a gay lead means for mainstream TV

In Instinct, the actor plays a spy-author-professor-detective whose sexuality is both irrelevant and groundbreaking

It is hard to believe, given the wellspring of queer-centric entertainment we’ve been graced with over the last few years, that Alan Cumming’s character in the new police procedural Instinct is the first openly gay lead of an American broadcast drama, ever. Even with Oscar plaudits for Moonlight and Call Me by Your Name, with shows like Transparent, Looking and reboots of Will & Grace and Queer Eye, progress has remained slow in the mainstream.

Wes Anderson's Isle of Dogs?:? loving homage to Japan ?or ?cultural appropriation?

Critics claim the director’s film, with its sushi and sumo wrestlers, bastardises Japanese culture. But is it just a clumsy cliche fest?

As someone who has routinely criticised Hollywood’s appropriation of other cultures, especially Japan’s, Wes Anderson’s Isle of Dogs ought to yank my chain. It’s a quintessentially Andersonian tale, told with all the quirks and quips and symmetrical compositions we’ve come to expect. This time the setting is Japan – a fictional future Japan, where abandoned dogs are quarantined on an island rubbish dump.

Black Panther becomes highest-grossing superhero movie in US

Box office results show that the film has earned a record-breaking total of $630.9m so far, taking it to No 5 on the all-time US list

Black Panther has overtaken The Avengers to become the highest-grossing superhero film at the US box office, taking a total of $630.9m (£443.5m) on its sixth weekend of release. The Avengers – also a Marvel production – finished on $623.4m in its home market in 2012.

The record-breaking result, in which Black Panther added an estimated $16.6m to its previous week’s total of $614.3m, came as it was dethroned from its five-week run as the box office No 1, having been overtaken by monster movie Pacific Rim: Uprising, which managed $28m on its debut.

‘People want to feel they might see an accident’ – how dangerous is the circus?

Cirque du Soleil acrobat Yann Arnaud’s fatal fall has cast a shadow over the world of circus on its 250th anniversary. Is audience demand for bigger thrills in the big top driving performers to ever greater risks?

Ten days ago, Yann Arnaud, a French acrobat based in Florida, posted a photo to Instagram in which his right hand grips the nylon strap he would later swing from during a show by the Canadian circus group Cirque du Soleil. For weeks, he had been perfecting an act alongside fellow artist Pawel Walczewski, and they were ready to reveal it to a live audience in Tampa. “After so much work and training and staging, our straps duo act is finally in the show tonight,” Arnaud wrote below the photo. “It’s time to go for it.”

Hours later, Arnaud, 38, appeared to lose his grip. Video shot by a spectator showed him falling several metres on to the stage. Crew members rushed to his side while the audience gasped. “There were children there and they were freaking out,” another spectator told a Florida TV station. Arnaud, who had two young daughters, died in hospital later that night.

How to survive an ultra-long haul flight

Easter is nothing without chocolate, and it couldn’t be easier than these simple truffles and brownies swirled with almond butter

Ankles wet from dewy grass, a basket filled with foil-wrapped eggs, a sugar high by 10am ... the Easter-egg hunt was an annual highlight when I was little. I’ll be recreating it for my son this year, but there’ll be some grownup offerings, too: squidgy-centred brownies and the easiest chocolate truffles. Both lean on a favourite pairing: chocolate and nut butter, a flavour friendship rarely bettered. If you can’t have nuts, then sunflower seed butter will work here, too.

A local’s guide to Lisbon: 10 top tips

The Serbian-born writer picks the best places in his ‘beautiful, luminous’ adopted city for eating, shopping, walking or just hanging out and soaking up the views

Before I moved to Lisbon, almost a quarter of a century ago, someone told me: “From afar, it looks like a queen. But from closer you see that the old empress’s make-up is smudged and flaking, and that the ornaments fluttering in the wind are not lace, but someone’s laundry drying at the windows. But she’s still is a real beauty.”

I fell in love with Lisbon from the off. The city has since been seriously spruced up and redeveloped, but it hasn’t lost its shabby-chic glamour. It’s a very user-friendly city: not too big, not too small, safe, and not too expensive. Even today, 20 years later, it still manages to surprise me with its beauty and luminosity.

The human microbiome: why our microbes could be key to our health

A plethora of conditions, from obesity to anxiety, appear to be linked to the microbes inside us. Nicola Davis explains why the microbiome is such a hot topic of research

What are microbiomes?

Both inside and out, our bodies harbour a huge array of micro-organisms. While bacteria are the biggest players, we also host single-celled organisms known as archaea, as well as fungi, viruses and other microbes – including viruses that attack bacteria. Together these are dubbed the human microbiota. Your body’s microbiome is all the genes your microbiota contains, however colloquially the two terms are often used interchangeably.

'The stress is making me ill': woman's immigration battle after 51 years in UK

Sarah O’Connor cannot work or claim benefits and doesn’t have the documents or money to apply for a passport

Sarah O’Connor moved to Britain from Jamaica 51 years ago, when she was six, and has lived here ever since. Last year she was challenged by the benefits agency to prove she was in the country legally, unleashing a torrent of immigration-related problems. For the past nine months she has been left facing bankruptcy, afraid to open the front door in case it is the Home Office coming to deport her or bailiffs arriving to remove her property.

O’Connor is unable to provide documentary evidence to prove she is here legally. Without this paperwork, she has been unable to take up new work and has been refused unemployment benefits, leaving her without an income. She sold her car at the beginning of the year, but she is struggling to pay her rent and is falling further into debt.

Braunau in the spotlight: Hitler's birthplace embraces inclusion

The house at 15 Salzburger Vorstadt still attracts tourists, but the town where Hitler was born has reinvented itself as a place that welcomes outsiders

“I was travelling with Germans recently, and when they heard where I’m from, they said: ‘Nothing good ever came from Braunau!’” recounts Monika Raschhofer at local paper Braunauer Warte am Inn to illustrate the pall Adolf Hitler casts over this small town on the border with Germany.

Coming from Braunau means being asked, and asked, about Hitler and the house at 15 Salzburger Vorstadt, where he was born on 20 April 1889. It is 80 years this month since Hitler made the most historically important of his rare visits to Braunau, passing through as he annexed Austria in 1938. He didn’t stop: his family had moved away when he was three and, with the Anschluss to take care of, he headed straight to nearby Linz, the city he considered home.

“Even if we work every day for the next six months, we still won’t finish this job – we don’t have enough support or equipment,” says Muhammed Shaban, an officer of the Civil Defence Force in west Mosul, in the exhausted tone of someone who is unable to separate his life from his work.

Shaban and his colleagues were recovering as many as 30 bodies a day in August last year, one month after the fighting ceased. More bodies still lie under the rubble along the banks of the Tigris river, where the last bloody battles were fought. “We are working with our hands and it is so hard,” says Shaban. He is still waiting to be paid.

Bust a groove: the best – and worst – rock star statues

The world’s first David Bowie sculpture is being unveiled in Aylesbury – but well-meaning effigies to the stars of modern music have often been hit and miss with fans

The world’s first David Bowie statue is to be unveiled on Sunday in the unlikely location of Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, where the singer debuted Hunky Dory. Only time will tell whether sculptor Andrew Sinclair’s Earthly Messenger statue will prove a Ziggy smash or Tin Machine dud, although historically, such well-meaning effigies have been rather hit and miss with fans. With this in mind, we look at some of the best – and worst – rock star memorials of all time.

UN moves towards recognising human right to a healthy environment

Formal recognition would help protect those who increasingly risk their lives to defend the land, water, forests and wildlife, says the UN special rapporteur on human rights and the environment

It is time for the United Nations to formally recognise the right to a healthy environment, according to the world body’s chief investigator of murders, beatings and intimidation of environmental defenders.

John Knox, the UN special rapporteur on human rights and the environment, said the momentum for such a move – which would significantly raise the global prominence of the issue – was growing along with an awareness of the heavy toll being paid by those fighting against deforestation, pollution, land grabs and poaching.

We must honour lost land defenders by fighting the system which killed them

Two more defenders in Latin America have lost their lives challenging their country’s economic growth model which prizes profit at all cost

As the Guardian and Global Witness revealed that almost four environmental defenders were murdered every week in 2017, War on Want learned of two more killings through our Latin American partner organisations.

On 24 January, Márcio “Marcinho” Matos, involved in the fight for rights of landless peasants in Bahia in north-east Brazil, was shot in front of his son. Three days later, Temístocles “don Temis” Machado, a prominent figure in the struggle of Afro-Colombian communities across the Colombian Pacific, was murdered in his home in the Isla de Paz community.

I Heart Posters: the graphic design of Milton Glaser – in pictures

Cave paintings, thinks Milton Glaser, are the earliest posters. “Those images create reactions today with the same potency they must have had when they were made. It’s extraordinary that this form of communication has existed all through history.” The celebrated US graphic designer – whose work includes the I Heart NY design – has created countless posters, 450 of which are collected in a new book.

Some have taken on a life of their own: “People send me the strangest examples of ‘I Heart’,” he says, “for example, in a hut in a small African village.” A good poster, he says, needs to communicate effectively, be persuasive, and attract attention. But there’s a distinction between graphic design and art: “graphic design is now basically an adjunct of capitalism. Art is a means of examining reality freshly with open eyes.”

Milton Glaser Posters (Abrams Books, £22.99) is published on 27 March. To order a copy for £19.54 go to guardianbookshop.com or call 0330 333 6846

The big picture: Romany children in Slovakia

Åke Ericson captures an exuberant moment amid growing intolerance in an image from his book Non Grata

Any documentary photographer who chooses the Roma as a subject must inevitably work in the shadow of the great Josef Koudelka, whose 1975 book Gypsies is now recognised as one of the great photo essays of the 20th century. Time has imbued Koudelka’s often intimate images with an even more poetic quality, and the decade in which he made them is now viewed as a relatively benign period in their long history by the Roma themselves. Much has changed since.

This photograph was taken by the Swedish photographer Åke Ericson in the Luník IX settlement in Košice, Slovakia, in 2013, and shows a young Romany boy, Juraj Mizigor, performing a backflip for his friends beneath a rundown tower block. It is a study in resilience and resourcefulness as well as exuberance. The fact that it is in black and white, unintentionally or otherwise, links it to older images of the Roma from decades past, suggesting their long history of persecution and displacement.
