Enrique Ferro's insight:


Hopefully 40 years later justice is served. I feel tears in my eyes. Victor Jara was for all the Spanish speaking world more than a brother -a daughter of mine bears his name. Like the Che, he has been our inspiration, joy, and pain.

«План Евросоюза» против RT: цензура во имя свободы?

«План Евросоюза» против RT: цензура во имя свободы? | Global politics | Scoop.it

Впервые со времён войны с нацистской Германией странам Западной и Центральной Европы предлагается напрямую бороться на своей территории с иностранными СМИ. Причем не со всеми, а со СМИ отдельно взятой страны, а именно России. В программе так и говорится: нужно бороться «с

ISIS barbarians at the gates, while NATO busy hyping ‘Russia threat’

ISIS barbarians at the gates, while NATO busy hyping ‘Russia threat’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
As ISIS and ISIS-style terror erupts across the globe, Western governments are busy making plans to establish a rapid reaction force in Eastern Europe to ‘contain Russia’, thus qualifying them for an annual ‘you couldn’t make it up’ award.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Meanwhile, in Iraq and Syria, the so-called Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS/ISIL) and other Salafist terror groups continue to kill, slaughter, and butcher men, women, and children. All this is happening while the West continues to make a virtue of impotence, more concerned with directing its ire against a country, Russia that has been at the forefront of resisting terrorism at home and abroad.

За нарушение запрета туристам придётся платить штраф. Введение запрета на селфи на фоне памятников чиновники ЕС объясняют тем, что такие фото часто публикуют в социальных сетях и тем самым нарушают закон об авторских правах.

‘Greece should go bankrupt, get it over & start it over’

‘Greece should go bankrupt, get it over & start it over’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
Though there is a lot of noise concerning the Greek crisis and the Greek economy is likely going to collapse this week, three months from now no one will remember Greece going bankrupt, financial commentator Jim Rogers told RT.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

AFRAID OF DEMOCRACY: "Let’s put one thing very clear, they are completely opposed to the idea of a referendum regardless of [a result of the vote]. They are opposed to the idea itself that the whole austerity policies of the EU will be put to a popular voting in any country. That is the problem; they don’t what it because this would be a precedent for other countries to do likewise."
