UEFA has declined the Munich city council’s request to light up its stadium in rainbow colors for Germany’s final game against Hungary this week. Mayor Dieter Reiter made the request to protest an anti-LGBTQ law recently passed in Hungary. And over 800 members of Indigenous tribes from across Brazil are camped in the capital, Brasilia, to protest what they say are attacks on their rights and land. Also, negotiations between Saudi Arabia and the Houthi rebel movement in Yemen are heating up. Saudi Arabia may be looking to exit the civil war that has led to a humanitarian disaster in Yemen.
