Should Cuba be concerned about Monsanto coming to the island?

#organicfarming   #organicfood   #monsanto   #bigag   #Cuba  
Over the past 25 years, Cuba has built a largely organic farming system out of necessity. When the Soviet Union collapsed, Cuba lost its main supplier of fertilizers and pesticides. What will the changing U.S.-Cuban relationship mean for Cuban farmers? We air a video report from a farm outside Havana produced by Democracy Now!

Cuba was placed on the U.S. terrorism list in 1982 at a time when Havana was supporting liberation struggles in Africa and Latin America.

#Cuba   #CubaUSrelations   #RaulCastro   #TerrorismList  
The U.S. has formally removed Cuba from its list of state sponsors of terrorism, clearing a main obstacle to restoring diplomatic ties with Havana for the first time in over five decades. Cuba was placed on the terrorism list in 1982 at a time when Havana was supporting liberation struggles in Africa and Latin America. While Cuba is now off the terrorism list, most of the U.S. sanctions remain in place. We speak to historian Jane Franklin, author...

Two years ago today Edward Snowden met Glenn Greenwald for the first time to unveil the secrets of the NSA sparking a debate over domestic surveillance that continues to this day.

#NSA   #EdwardSnowden   #PatriotAct   #GlennGreenwald   #Domesticsurveillance   #RandPaul   #news   #Congress   #usafreedomact  
The government’s authority to sweep up millions of Americans’ phone records has expired. The practice exposed by National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden could now face limited reforms as the Senate weighs the USA FREEDOM Act, which would require the government to ask phone companies for a user’s data rather than vacuuming up all the records at once. We get reaction from Glenn Greenwald, the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist who firs...

Will Sen. Ted Cruz keep talking about "global warming alarmists"?

#Texas   #oklahoma   #floods   #climatechange   #TedCruz  
Severe storms that began last week in Texas and Oklahoma have killed at least 23 people, and the damage is so extensive that Texas Governor Greg Abbott has declared nearly 40 counties disaster areas. In Houston, many highways turned into waterways, and more than a thousand cars were submerged under water. President Obama has pledged federal assistance to help the state recover, but cleanup efforts were stalled Thursday as thunderstorms continued...

+Cy Husain If you will read my comment carefully, I point out that the climate was recovering from the Little Ice Age before the anthropogenic CO2 became significant, I'm not disagreeing with the Professor in this regard at all, or making the old denier argument, since I am part of the consensus.  That doesn't mean however, that the science about the set feedback to CO2 is resolved.  We still don't know whether that net feedback is negative or positive, and whether the warming will be less or more than 1.2C by 2100.

"It revealed the arrogance and hypocrisy of the United States in pressuring Western Europe."

#JulianAssange   #wikileaks   #Bolivia   #EdwardSnowden   #EvoMorales   #plane   #news  
In 2013, Julian Assange of WikiLeaks played a pivotal role in helping National Security Agency whistleblower Edward Snowden leave Hong Kong for Russia. During the U.S. hunt for Snowden, Bolivian President Evo Morales’ plane was forced to land in Austria for 14 hours after Spain, France, Portugal and Italy closed their airspace under pressure from the United States over false rumors Snowden was on board. Assange gives the inside story on why that ...

If anybody needed objective evidence that the American empire is collapsing it would be the US government's reaction to Edward Snowden and Julian Assange.

WikiLeaks is raising a $100,000 reward for the missing chapters on America’s most wanted secret.

#TPP   #Wikileaks   #JulianAssange   #Transpacificpartnership   #bounty  
Despite the Senate vote approving a measure to give President Obama fast-track authority to negotiate the secretive Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, opposition to the deal continues to mount ahead of this month’s House vote. Critics, including a number of Democratic lawmakers, oppose the TPP, saying it will fuel inequality, kill jobs, and undermine health, environmental and financial regulations. The negotiations have been secret, and the public h...

It seems capitalism is now run on secrecy and deception (TPP, mass surveillance ...) whilst transparency now has to be bought or offered to us by whistleblowers at the price of their freedom. We need more organizations like Wikileaks and Anonymous.
