Brazil Protests – “Do not come for the World Cup!”

Brazil is under Siege: Protests in all Major Cities.

 

 

Livestream

 

Brazil experienced one of its biggest nights of protest in decades on Monday as more than 100,000 people took to the streets nationwide to express their frustration at heavyhanded policing, poor public services and high costs for the World Cup.

The major demonstrations in Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Brasilia, Belem, Belo Horizonte, Salvador and elsewhere started peacefully but several led to clashes with police and arson attacks on cars and buses.

The large turnout and geographic spread marked a rapid escalation after smaller protests last week against bus price increases led to complaints that police responded disproportionately with rubber bullets, tear gas and violent beatings.

Coinciding with the start of the Confederations Cup – a World Cup test event – the rallies brought together a wide coalition of people frustrated with the escalating costs and persistently poor quality of public services, lavish investment on international sporting events, low standards of healthcare and wider unease about inequality and corruption.

Stephen Fry on American Prisons – Facts

Three “strikes” and you get life in prison.

  • Even for trivial crimes, Leandro Andrade is serving 2 consecutive life sentences for shoplifting 9 video tapes with a value of $153
  • 1% of Americans are in jail (2.3million)
  • No society in history has imprisoned as many people as America
  • 1 in 30 men aged 20 – 34 are in prison
  • 1 in 9 black males are in prison
  • There are more 17 year old black males in prison than in college
  • American prisons produce 93% of domestically used paints, 36% of home appliances, 21% of office furniture, which allows America to compete with factories in Mexico

You get solitary confinement if you refuse to work!

Thus America has successfully reinvented the slave trade.

ISPs to launch copyright spying scheme on July 1st

The country’s largest Internet Service Providers haven’t given up on the idea of becoming copyright cops.

 

Last July, Comcast, Cablevision, Verizon, Time Warner Cable and other bandwidth providers announced that they had agreed to adopt policies designed to discourage customers from illegally downloading music, movies and software. Since then, the ISPs have been very quiet about their antipiracy measures.

 

But during a panel discussion before a gathering of U.S. publishers in March, 2012, Cary Sherman, CEO of the Recording Industry Association of America, said most of the participating ISPs are on track to begin implementing the program by July 1.
