Tensions in this part of DRC’s North Kivu province have been rising sinc... Show more...
 

Lessons To Learn From The Coup In Bolivia


"The coup in Bolivia is devastating for the majority of the people in that country. Are their lessons to learn from it?

Andrea Lobo writes writes at WSWS:
Bolivian president #Evo #Morales of the Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) party was forced to resign Sunday evening by the Bolivian #military in a #coup backed by the #United #States. Last night, Morales tweeted that he is “leaving for Mexico” after that country agreed to grant him asylum.

After three weeks of protests following the disputed October 20 presidential elections, the imperialist powers and their Bolivian client elite have overthrown the government of Morales. In the context of a deepening #crisis of #global #capitalism and a resurgence of the class struggle internationally, including recent mass strikes among miners and doctors in #Bolivia, the ruling class lost confidence that Morales and the #MAS apparatus can continue to suppress social opposition".

La pelea por las #apariencias tuiteras

En los días de #crisis muchos sentían que solo tenían #Twitter para informarse, sin darse cuenta del peligro que Twitter representa: no sólo da una idea #reducida y segmentada de la #realidad sino que mezcla impunemente #mentiras con noticias.

The Literal Gaslighting That Helps #America Avoid Acting on the #Climate #Crisis

Burning gas produces less carbon dioxide than burning coal. But #carbon #dioxide is not the only #greenhouse #gas. The second most important contributor to climate change is methane—CH4. And, when you frack the countryside for natural gas to burn in #power plants, lots of methane #leaks out at every stage of the process, from drilling to combustion. So: less carbon dioxide, more #methane.

On the constant humanitarian crises-stricken Haiti


Haiti has been affected by episodes of drought and erratic distribution of rainfall. Compounding the humanitarian situation were the devastating effects of Hurricanes Matthew (October 2016) and Irma (September 2017). Hurricane Matthew – the strongest since Felix in 2007 – had catastrophic impacts on the food security and livelihoods of communities living in the departments of Grand’Anse, Sud, Sud-Est and Nippes, destroying 100 percent of crops and affecting approximately 2.1 million people. Furthermore, although its eye was not directly on Haiti, floods and strong winds linked to Hurricane Irma damaged crops in the Nord-Est department.

Moreover, an economic crisis triggered by a depreciation of the Haitian gourde has caused a significant reduction in households’ purchasing power, directly affecting their food security. As a result, the population has been protesting against the Government since 7 February 2019, hampering logistics, food production and the functioning of market s... Show more...

«Live Aid» comes to Venezuela!


On Monday, the government of President Nicolas Maduro stated that it would hold its own concert this weekend on Venezuela's side of the border, according to the Associated Press (AP), opposite the Branson-led concert which will take place on the Colombian side of the border.

Ridiculty intensifies.

"Venezuela Aid Live" hopes to raise $100 million within the next two months, so that humanitarian aid can be delivered to those in need.

What will the line-up look like?

Speaking to AP, Branson said that the organizers of Friday's event want to make it "a joyous occasion", adding that they hope that "sense prevails and that the military allows the bridge to be open so that much-needed supplies can be sent across."

Russian ambassador: INF withdrawal ‘crisis of security’ for Europe
 

Again, on Nogales, AZ, and the border amped with concertina wire


The resolution — which says such a wall "is only found in a war, prison or battle setting" and has no place in the city — says that if the government does not remove the wire, it will file a lawsuit to have it taken down.

Earlier in the week, Mayor Arturo Garino told the local Nogales International that the razor wire was "lethal" to the town's residents. "I really don't know what they’re thinking by putting it all the way down to the ground," he said.

To not grieve mroe about this stupid making of populist policies, let's wonder why a local newspaper called itself Nogales International. I found this kind of funny, I must admit, but maybe, I just grew tired of all this bullshit the president is creating to show his sheeple how much he is about defending his country from the imaginary crisis that awaits in front of the border.
