Narco-Socialist Cartel: Morales, the Pope and the Chaos in Bolivia

Chile’s Protesters are Tools of Neoliberalism

source: The social uprising which has occurred in recent weeks in Chile has made unanimous news: rising living costs, soaring inequalities, privatised public services, poor pensions — these are the reasons Chile’s masses are on the streets. The average salary in Chile is $778 a month, while the cost of living is comparable to Western Europe! 1% of the country’s population owns 26.5% of the wealth. So, there is no doubt about the necessity to radically reduce inequality in the country. But is this social movement part of a revolutionary uprising in Latin America against capitalism? I will argue here …

Genocide in India’s Assam State: Islamo-Leftists are Responsible

Source: enewsroom.in “If we don’t stop it now, we may end up in refugee camps.” That’s what one Assamese citizen told journalists in the documentary ‘Assam- The Silent Genocide’. Assam is a state in India’s north-eastern region. Since the country’s independence from Britain in 1947, the Muslim population of the state has increased exponentially.

Ah yes, we love to hear about brutal crackdowns on peaceful protesters when they don’t wear yellow vests and are not protesting against our own leaders! The recent protests in Hong Kong …
