Накануне выборов в Верховную раду Украины ряд СМИ со ссылкой на Центризбирком распространил информацию о том, что в связи с нарушениями в работе электронной системы «Выборы» и хакерскими атаками на сайт ЦИК подсчёт голосов будет осуществляться вручную, а дата оглашения результатов голосования будет перенесена.

Ukraine's election: Behind the looking glass

Ukraine's election: Behind the looking glass | Global politics | Scoop.it
The vote taking place this weekend in Kiev-controlled territories is part of the Maidan junta's desperate quest for legitimacy. Nazis still dominate Ukrainian politics, while Kiev dreams of a military ‘final solution’ for the east.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

AN EXCELLENT OP-ED! 

The way it is practiced by the West in the countries they ‘liberate’, however, democracy means whatever the ‘liberators’ say it means. Thus an overwhelming vote in favor of independence in Crimea, Donetsk and Lugansk is not ‘democratic’ – because the High Priesthood in the West says so – while the violent coup in Kiev is the pinnacle of democracy, because it was “midwifed” by Washington (per V Nuland's famous phone call).

Ecuador’s FM Patino on global corporations: Transnational misconduct must end

Ecuador’s FM Patino on global corporations: Transnational misconduct must end | Global politics | Scoop.it
Transnational corporations have abused their privileges leading to “an unprecedented level of social and environmental injustice,” said Ecuador’s FM Ricardo Patino in his article calling on all nations to hold such companies accountable for their actions:
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Ecuador is an outstanding example of a "lesser" country which suffered untold misconduct by international capital (the debt coertion, loss of national richness, even the suspicious death of a president who refused to play along), and which has been able to rid itself of so much abuse and even face the empire without complexes (as the Assange asylum shows, inter alia). It deserves the sympathy of all anti-imperialists and states fighting to preserve their sovereignty.

AFP Photo / Jonathan Nackstrand Investigative journalist Laura Poitras says she is worried about intelligence agencies using the all-too-easily-accessible data gathered from social networks – as people share their personal information voluntarily and governments only need to ask.

Олигархов на вилы: Предвыборная агитация отражает нравы украинских политиков | Global politics | Scoop.it
На Украине сегодня – «день тишины» перед досрочными выборами в Верховную раду, назначенными на завтра, 26 октября. Итоги выборов определят не только состав парламента, но и фактический состав правительства. По данным социологов, за три дня до голосования от 20% до 30% избирателей всё ещё не определились с выбором. Но сегодня любая агитационная активность уже запрещена. В числе прочего, с улиц и площадей исчезнут баннеры и билборды, призывающие голосовать за партии или отдельных кандидатов в деп

Venezuela to revise relations with Spain

Venezuela to revise relations with Spain | Global politics | Scoop.it
Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has ordered a review of all relations with Spain citing its Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy’s support for opposition and criticism of the country’s judicial system.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Aznar, who was Rajoy's mentor, was the first along with W, to recognize the ill-fated putsch junta in 2002. So there is nothing new with the very rightist government in Spain, a disgrace to the Spanish people to begin with, as it is drowning Spain into the misery of excessive doses of neo-liberalism.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Citizens of developed countries will also join forces to support those of us directly affected by the misconduct of some multinationals, once they realize that they are also victims of the supremacy of capital. Today we have the collective duty to protect our people and our environment. It’s time to reign in the arbitrary actions of corporate power and create the conditions for a more just and respectful world.
