Reporting Syria: I Talked to Everyone, Except Assad
Robert Fisk | counterpunch.org | 2019-12-03
I've spent months these past eight years in Syria's amputated cities.

Ukraine, the New Cold War and the Politics of Impeachment
Rob Urie | counterpunch.org | 2019-12-02
In October 2019, with the impeachment of Donald Trump already underway, wealthy 'centrist' Democratic Party donors began to fret over the Democrat's prospects in the 2020 election. Since then Michael Bloomberg and Deval Patrick, both Wall Street Democrats with deep pockets, have entered the race. Meanwhile, the Senate impeachment schedule will keep Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren in Washington— and away from the campaign trail, well into the early state primaries.

Trump backs Hong Kong protesters, signs 'human rights' bill… 'out of respect for President Xi'?
rt.com | 2019-11-28
President Donald Trump has approved legislation backing Hong Kong's 'pro-democracy' protest movement, disregarding Beijing's repeated warnings for Washington to mind its own business and stop meddling in China's internal affairs. | Dubbed the 'Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act,' the bill blazed through both houses of Congress earlier this month with virtually unanimous consent from lawmakers. In addition to threatening sanctions over human rights violations, the law requires the State Department to "certify" once a year whether Hong Kong enjoys sufficient "autonomy," though exactly how officials will qu…

We're Still Waiting for 'Early and Often' Climate Debate Questions
Julie Hollar | fair.org | 2019-11-27
As the Democratic Party prepared for its first presidential primary debates in June, climate activists pushed the DNC to schedule a single-issue debate on the climate crisis, given the urgency of the problem and the lack of attention given to it in previous debates. DNC chair Tom Perez refused, saying he had "the utmost confidence" that climate disruption would be discussed in the debates "early and often" (FAIR.org, 6/18/19). | Now that seven nights of debates have passed, and multiple…

20 Years After The Battle of Seattle: Vandana Shiva & Lori Wallach on Historic 1999 WTO Protests
Staff | democracynow.org | 2019-11-27
Twenty years ago this week, tens of thousands of activists gathered in Seattle to shut down a ministerial meeting of the World Trade Organization. Grassroots organizers successfully blocked world leaders, government trade ministers and corporate executives from meeting to sign a global trade deal that many called deeply undemocratic, harmful to workers' rights, the environment and Indigenous people globally. On November 30, 1999, activists formed a human chain around the Seattle convention center and shut down the city's downtown. Police responded by firing tear gas and rubber bullets into the mostly peaceful cro…

Congress Just Temporarily Extended the Government's Spying Powers

Congress today temporarily extended the NSA's spying powers that time and again have been used to violate our rights.
