Maria Anecy Martins arrived in Brasília this week with glowing eyes to join the 2019 ‘Daisies’ (=Margaridas) March. The 45-year-old small farmer is one of the 100,000 peasant women who joined the 2-day event .

The sixth edition of the ‘Daisies’ March took place in Brasília on Aug. 13 and 14. The name of the event, originally Marcha das Margaridas, pays tribute to Margarida Maria Alves, a union leader in the northeastern state of Paraíba who fought for rural workers’ rights and was murdered by contract killers hired by big landowners in 1983.

OMG No! The Fucking Brits Are Really Going To Do It

DESPITE all available facts which should act as a deterrent, the fucking Brits are really entering into the finals stages of creating such a morally bankrupt society that Boris Johnson can waltz into the position of prime minister.
Johnson, who has dedicated his life to only providing proof of his insidious ineptitude, finds himself topping the votes in the first round of Tory leadership voting, even though his two brain cells lost touch a long time ago and refuse to speak to each other.
While Britons look to pin the blame on the members of the Tory party, it has been pointed out that Johnson was the directly elected Mayor of
London, twice, and elected as an MP, so no one is getting out of here without acknowledging their culpability.“Don’t overestimate us, we voted for Brexit,” confirmed one fed up Briton.
Britain, not blessed with political leaders of substance for some time, have failed to come together and plot a way to keep the serial liar from the highest political offices.

Even with myriad scandals and actions which serve as a constant source of national embarrassment for Britain, Johnson still has 3 years left to run on his ‘well, it’s okay ‘cus he’s a funny kind of posh’ card which covers him for acts of racism, corruption, classism and naked self advancement.

The fact that his rivals for Tory readership include that creepy uncle your family doesn’t talk about anymore, a looped video of car crashing into a wall, a wolf who keeps saying ‘I’m going to eat you’, cocaine and a particularly strong strain of Gonorrhea, is seen as no excuse for still being in this position.

WTG, Brits! You have a Trump. If left untreated, it will grow and fester. before you can say, “Wait. What?”, there will be a cancer across the land. Take it from me. You should excise that tumor now, before it becomes malignant.

Not my choice but then I am not in the Tory party. Trouble is the Tory’s will probably think he is the best chance of them getting in at the next general election. The Brexit brigade love him. But then does that split the vote between Farage and Boris and thus let Corbyn in? It’s like choosing to be buggered by the broom or the mop.

Jeremy Hammond: Anarchist Hero sends Message from Prison

June 11th 2019 statement

A special message from anarchist prisoner Jeremy Hammond

A raised fist to you all this June 11th! May this letter find you in revolutionary health and spirits. Although I am unable to be with you physically on this occasion due to being held in captivity by the BOP, I still feel connected with you on this day of solidarity. It was nice to run the 5K with you a few days ago for Running Down The Walls. I also sent out a few dozen origami models decorated with June 11th anarchist tattoos; you should be receiving those shortly.

Big ups to the other anarchist comrades behind bars. We have been through a lot of trials and tribulations over the years: harassment from abusive guards, solitary confinement, diesel therapy, the mind-numbing frustrations from battling the brutal bureaucracy for so many years. Never have we been alone, however. Continue reading “Jeremy Hammond: Anarchist Hero sends Message from Prison”

How Britain stole $45 trillion from India .. And lied about it.

by

There is a story that is commonly told in Britain that the colonisation of India – as horrible as it may have been – was not of any major economic benefit to Britain itself. If anything, the administration of India was a cost to Britain. So the fact that the empire was sustained for so long – the story goes – was a gesture of Britain’s benevolence.

New research by the renowned economist Utsa Patnaik – just published by Columbia University Press – deals a crushing blow to this narrative. Drawing on nearly two centuries of detailed data on tax and trade, Patnaik calculated that Britain drained a total of nearly $45 trillion from India during the period 1765 to 1938.

It’s a staggering sum. For perspective, $45 trillion is 17 times more than the total annual gross domestic product of the United Kingdom today. Continue reading “How Britain stole $45 trillion from India .. And lied about it.”
