"Throughout Europe, xenophobic and racist parties shape the agenda, preying on people’s ignorance and fear. According to Ipsos/Mori, Brits and Spaniards believe they have twice as many immigrants in their country as there actually are; in Italy, Belgium and France it’s closer to three times; in Hungary it’s eight times; in Poland, more than 30. No wonder they’re freaked out."

"...the authorities’ lack of urgency in responding to the crisis reflects the belief among large segments of Brazilian society that the country’s natural resources are immune to the danger of over-exploitation and depletion. “We have an energy minister who says that God is Brazilian, and will send us rain, and everything will be ok”, Moscatelli told Reuters in an interview. “That’s the kind of thing our authorities are telling the population, when the reality is that we are on the brink of a huge disaster”.

Para celebrar o aniversário ‪#‎Globo50Anos‬, nada melhor do que o clássico documentário do canal inglês Channel 4 News "Além do Cidadão Kane". Apesar de ter sido exibido em 1994, esse meticuloso trabalho jornalístico segue relevante e atual. Fundamental pra entender não só a Rede Globo, mas a própria sociedade brasileira.

Well, obviously.

But I'm looking forward to this. Should be good:

'New Apocalypse!', a fantastic anti-regeneration, anti-real estate speculation video from my hometown of Recife goes viral in the Brazilian Internet:

“The rules of engagement for soldiers advancing on the ground were: open fire, open fire everywhere, first thing when you go in,” recalled another soldier who served during the ground operation in Gaza City. The assumption being that the moment we went in [to the Gaza Strip], anyone who dared poke his head out was a terrorist.”
(...)
“There were a lot of people there who really hate Arabs. Really, really hate Arabs. You could see the hate in their eyes.”

A second lieutenant echoed his comments. “You could feel there was a radicalisation in the way the whole thing was conducted. The discourse was extremely rightwing ... [And] the very fact that [Palestinians were] described as ‘uninvolved’ rather than as civilians, and the desensitisation to the surging number of dead on the Palestinian side. It doesn’t matter whether they’re involved or not.”

Professor Hugh Gusterson of The George Washington University clearly lays out how US foreign policy comes back to haunt black & poor Americans:


"In its use of drones for counterinsurgency, then, the United States has melded the paradigms of war and law enforcement to its convenience and given itself an overly generous license to kill. Meanwhile at home, U.S. domestic police forces are also increasingly integrating the paradigms of law enforcement and counterinsurgency with the result that people like Scott, stopped for a tail-light violation, end up dead. According to the New York Times, under a program that transfers military equipment to local law enforcement, U.S. police departments—often serving communities of less than 100,000—have since 2006 taken possession of $4.3 billion worth of military equipment ... U.S. policing, in other words, is increasingly seen by the police themselves as a form of counterinsurgency, designed to control hostile populations whose lives lack value. As if they were operating in Iraq or Afghanistan, U.S. police infiltrate and spy on adversary networks, stop and search people at will, and bust down doors in the middle of the night with guns drawn."

I was reading the book A Theory of the Drone by the French philosopher Grégoire Chamayou when I heard that yet another American black man had been killed by a white police officer, this time in South Carolina. Actually, “killed” is too generic a word. In the video of the incident, ...

I used to cut my hair there when I was a student at the LSE. They had a polish hairdresser, Sylvia, who was amazing. Nobody had ever been able to manage well my curls, and she did! One day, I went back and she was gone. I have tried calling them and sending e-mail, but they would never tell me how I can reach Sylvia. The place is not the same without Sylvia, the best hairdresser for curly hair I have ever seen. Please if anyone knows where she is working, let me know.
