#Lebanon: The state of things

Lebanon. Will the confinement and the ceasefire get the better of the Lebanese uprising? Will the omnipresence of security be able to bridge the chasm into which the population seems to sink deeper every day? These are, in any case, the questions that Ghassan Salhab asks from Beirut.

#Chile: Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar once again arrested under the frame-up of bomb cases n ° 4, 5, 6 … (we already lost count)

Chile. Since the morning of this Friday, July 24, various raids began to be carried out in various communes of the Metropolitan Region, events that ended with Monica Caballero and Francisco Solar being detained (previously criminalized and acquitted) in what appears to be the new “Bombs Case”, which would laughably involve the most questionable character from the previous Piñera government, the former minister of the interior and creator of the failed frame-up of “Bombs Case” n °1, Rodrigo Hinzpeter.

#UK: Stop HS2 Update

UK. Despite a media blackout, lots is happening in the world of HS2 resistance. High speed 2 is a corrupt scheme now predicted to cost over £100 billion which will both devastate areas of natural beauty and enrich Tory cronies and construction companies. Whilst the idea to have a superfast railway line connecting the north of England to London has some merit, since the south-east is over-crowded and the UK desperately needs to reduce carbom emissions, the implementation of HS2 is completely stupid. It’s a slow ecological catastrophe. Instead of building better transport links in the north, HS2 construction has started in the south and the midlands. Ancient woodlands are being trashed by contractors who have ignored the nesting season for birds and used hawks illegally to clear zones. Just the other day in Denham, a beautiful alder tree was chopped down and a tree protector was hospitalised.
