The Yemen Civil War Arms Bonanza
Binoy Kampmark | counterpunch.org | 2020-11-23
"Making billions from arms exports which fuel the conflict while providing a small fraction of that in aid to Yemen is both immoral and incoherent." So thundered Oxfam's Yemen Country Director, Muhsin Siddiquey after consulting figures from the Stockholm Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) showing that members of the G20 have exported over $17 billion worth of arms to Saudi Arabia since the Kingdom entered the conflict in Yemen. "The world's wealthiest nations cannot continue to put profits above the Yemeni people."

Brazilian singer Vital Farias' 'An Amazon Tale' in poetic new English translation
Peter Lownds | peoplesworld.org | 2020-11-23
Following are my English lyrics for Brazilian singer/songwriter Vital Farias' "Saga da Amazà¥nia." A poetic translation, especially of a complex lyric that employs many regionalisms, is necessarily and by definition a new work of art. I hope I have done justice to this beautiful song of protest dating back to 1982. If anything, it's even …

Future of American Democracy: On Inequality, Polarization and Violence
Ramzy Baroud | counterpunch.org | 2020-11-23
In January 2017, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU)'s Democracy Index downgraded the state of democracy in the United States from "full democracy" to "flawed democracy".

Surprise! America Is Getting Another Psycho For Secretary Of State
Caitlin Johnstone | thealtworld.com | 2020-11-23
Blinken is a liberal interventionist who has supported all of the most disgusting acts of US mass military slaughter this millennium, including the Iraq invasion. | Did you know the US Department of Defense used to be called the Department of War?

A People's Vaccine? Drugmakers Set to Profit from COVID Vaccines Made with Publicly Funded Research

With the world pinning its hopes on a successful coronavirus vaccine to curb the pandemic, corporate watchdogs say much of the research and development of the medicines rely on publicly funded research.

Every Purple Dot
_____ | popularresistance.org | 2020-11-23
Water is Life — it is where we come from, who we are (both in a base physical sense and philosophically as fluid beings in space and time), how we and the ecosystems we depend on survive. And therefore, it is also of prime interest to a capitalist system desperate to commodify everything and everyone. Water is literally a traded commodity on the stock market , perhaps the most prime example of how our system treats finite entities like water as if they were infinitely marketable while treating infinite 1s and 0s on a screen as if they were essential to our survival as a species.

Klaus Schwab, the Davos Chair, was more blunt: "Nothing will ever return to the 'broken' sense of normalcy that prevailed [earlier].

President Donald Trump's categorical refusal to accept what seems like an inevitable and increasingly crushing election loss has many in media rightly worried about the political repercussions of such a move, with some sounding the alarm over a potential coup d'etat in the US (e.g., Salon, 11/11/20; Washington Post, 11/12/20; Guardian, 11/13/20; New Republic, 11/13/20). | The New York Times, the country's flagship print publication, has been leading the condemnations, accusing the president of "vandaliz[ing] our country" (11/11/20), diagnosing him as a narcissist and a sociopath, and citing his attempts to cling…

Nigeria – On 3 October, a young man was killed by the police in Ughelli, a town in the Niger Delta region of Nigeria. A video of this incidence was circulated by residents of the city on WhatsApp and also posted on Twitter. This sparked the #EndSARS revolt of youths in the country, which was drowned in blood with the massacre of at least 36 people on 20 October. The bulk of these was at the Lekki tollgate, in Lagos state — one of the two main centres of the uprising in that mega-city where one-tenth of the country's population resides.
