The U.S. is Borrowing Its Way to Fascism
Richard D. Wolff | counterpunch.org | 2020-09-11
Viewing the GOP convention seemed a little like binge-watching the last several years' parade of none-too-subtle signs of incipient fascism. We saw extreme nationalism, scapegoating immigrants and foreigners in general, white supremacy, "strong (narcissistic)-man" government, aggressive foreign policies, and hysterical red-baiting. Those signs reflect how capitalism's deepening crisis undermines both the center-left (Democrat) and center-right…

Attack the press
Derek Royden | nationofchange.org | 2020-09-11
In normal times, we often see a gradual chipping away of basic rights like we've seen in the trials of Julian Assange, where a narrative, some of it true, a lot of it based on character assassination and outright lies, has been built over time, denying the publisher the presumption of innocence.

Chile, September 11, 1973: The Inauguration of Neoliberalism,"Shock Treatment" and the Instruments of Economic Repression: The Junta's Deadly "Economic Medicine"
Prof Michel Chossudovsky | globalresearch.ca | 2020-09-11
The Junta ordered a hike in the price of bread from 11 to 40 escudos. While food prices had skyrocketed, wages had been frozen. From one day to the next, an entire country had been precipitated into abysmal poverty; in less than a year the price of bread in Chile increased thirty-six fold.

The Myth of the "Bad" Immigrant
aclu.org | 2020-09-11
Immigrant communities are often asked to "get right with the law," but is the law right in the first place? That's what Alina Das asks in her new book, No Justice in the Shadows. She delves into her experience as the daughter of immigrants, an immigration attorney, and a clinical law professor to explore the intersection of immigration and the criminal justice system. , , Too often, she argues, our immigration system is used as a tool of discrimination and oppression, rather than as a tool of justice, and the consequences are dire. Our current immigration system is breaking up families, and forcing people to f…

Barbara Smith: The U.S. "Functions with White Supremacy as Its Engine." Here's How We Dismantle It
Staff | democracynow.org | 2020-09-11
Since the police killing of George Floyd in May sparked a nationwide uprising against police brutality, armed white supremacists have taken to the streets of U.S. cities in response to Black Lives Matter protests. Organizing against systemic racism has been met with apparent attempts by the Trump administration to cover up white supremacist violence. We speak to legendary Black feminist scholar Barbara Smith, founder of the Combahee River Collective, about her proposal for an antiracist program called the Hamer-Baker Plan — named for Fannie Lou Hamer and Ella Baker — to eradicate white supremacy in th…

What Went Wrong with AstraZeneca's Vaccine Trial? CEO Only Shares Details with Investors
Staff | democracynow.org | 2020-09-11
As the world races to find a COVID-19 vaccine, one of the most promising vaccine trials has hit a major roadblock. AstraZeneca paused its Phase 3 COVID-19 vaccine trial after a woman in the trial developed severe neurological symptoms consistent with transverse myelitis, or inflammation of the spinal cord. Details were only revealed during a CEO call with investors, and "everyone was left to guess what went wrong," writes Ed Silverman, senior writer at the health news site STAT, which broke the story.

Costs of War: After 9/11 Attacks, U.S. Wars Displaced at Least 37 Million People Around the World
Staff | democracynow.org | 2020-09-11
As the United States marks 19 years since the September 11 terrorist attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people, a new report finds at least 37 million people in eight countries have been displaced since the start of the so-called global war on terrorism since 2001. The Costs of War Project at Brown University also found more than 800,000 people have been killed since U.S. forces began fighting in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, Pakistan and Yemen, at a cost of $6.4 trillion to U.S. taxpayers.

For Greek camp migrants, COVID-19 quarantine was spark

For asylum-seekers trapped in the overcrowded facility on Greece's island of Lesbos, Moria was hell most days. But a coronavirus quarantine was the final straw.It was just before midnight on Tuesday when eight migrants who tested positive for COVID-19 were told by authorities they would be isolated to an area just beyond the gated compound, according to witnesses and government officials.Their relatives would also be moved into the fenced unit, about 40 small wooden houses on a hill inside Greece's biggest migrant settlement set up to deal with any breakout of COVID-19, for further testing.The news did not go dow…

Greece began setting up tents on Friday for thousands of increasingly desperate migrants left without shelter on the island of Lesbos after a fire destroyed Greece's biggest refugee camp on Wednesday.With more than 12,000 former occupants of the notoriously overcrowded Moria camp now camping out in fields and along roadsides without food or water and threatened by a possible spread of coronavirus infections, the need for a solution has become increasingly urgent.But the Greek government has been forced to tread warily due to growing anger among residents of an island whose location a few miles (km) off the Turkis…
