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.

Slave labor, oblivious expats, environmental collapse. Is this the real Dubai?

 

 

“The dark side of Dubai” – An article written by Johann Hari for the The Independent offers  a revealing insight into Dubai’s underbelly.

It is a true eye-opener to the slave labor tactics, racism, abuse, and the blatant disregard  for other human beings.

 

The road to this concrete glitz is paved with sweat, blood, and tears.

Justice for Richard O'Dwyer – Protect Internet Freedom

Justice for Richard O’Dwyer

 

“Richard O’Dwyer is a 24-year-old British student at Sheffield Hallam University in the UK. He is facing extradition to the USA and up to ten years in prison, for creating a website – TVShack.net – which linked (similarly to a search-engine) to places to watch TV and movies online.

O’Dwyer is not a US citizen, he’s lived in the UK all his life, his site was not hosted there, and most of his users were not from the US. America is trying to prosecute a UK citizen for an alleged crime which took place on UK soil.– from DemandProgress


TVShack.net simply linked to content hosted elsewhere on the internet. Nothing illegal was done here. This is the same way I can email anyone else a link to a YouTube video or post a link here on this blog. Such baseless accusations cannot be tolerated! Linking to content is NOT copyright infringement, it is freedom of speech! Stand up to the corporate bullies!

Stay vigilant and protect our civil liberties.
