Romani people are a generally nomad ethnic minority Europe, against whom it is deemed perfectly acceptable to be racist for most whites. It must be noted that Romani people were victims of the Holocaust, though that point is rarely brought up in any discussion to defend them. No less than two hundred people assaulted and destroyed the belongings of already impoverished and marginalized people, while being led by an elected representative. This is a very clear sign that fascism is alive and growing in France. It is only fair to say that participants of the heinous act are fascists and should at least be jailed. However I doubt any of this will happen as the judiciary system will never be on the side of Romani people. Meanwhile no armed anti-fascist force has the power to shut down fascism in this rotted country. This time the Soviets won't save the day, I'm afraid. As usual I only hope to be proven wrong.

Holy Shit…It looks like an atom bomb went off in Turkiye

>On Jan. 25, President Joe Biden met by phone with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, French President Emmanuel Macron, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and the Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni to coordinate their participation in the U.S.-led war. > >Biden announced that the U.S. would send 31 Abrams M1 tanks to Ukraine. German Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who had been publicly hesitating to send tanks without open U.S. participation, said Germany would send an initial 14 Leopard 2 tanks. The French, Italian and British prime ministers pledged additional military equipment. Hmm…there is something oddly familiar about all this. Is it just me?


cross-posted from: https://lemmygrad.ml/post/497845 > This is fucking horrifying, but are we surprised? Here is a [twitter thread](https://twitter.com/zei_squirrel/status/1618770802492706816?s=46&t=1GHZgZXF6Lm8X1PNbkHN5g) that goes over the refugee issues, as in Ukrainian refugees being fast tracked into other countries while non-white refugees have to fight tooth and nail just to get some space in a camp.

"The Western Corporate Media often claims that “North Korea prosecutes (or even executes) its people for watching South Korean dramas.” It’s hard to ascertain if that’s actually the case, as fake news about North Korea is the norm. The only allegations of this phenomena come from unreliable defector testimony of known liars (like Park Yeon Mi), who are rewarded for telling hyperbolic lies; or from dubious South Korean sources like the rightwing Chosun Ilbo. These hyperbolic claims are then amplified by right wing anti-communist organizations (like Liberty in North Korea) and the US MSM. However, contrary to these dubious claims, we can ascertain with certainty that South Korea does prosecute people for screening North Korean films. In fact, it’s not an exaggeration to say that much of what South Korea accuses North Korea of doing can actually be attributed right back to South Korea. In other words, these claims are projection—not cinematic, but psychological."

And above all, they don’t explicitly support one side or another nor do they fully support the Invasion of Ukraine, buy if you check it out, you’ll find their info is pretty good. Lemme know any criticisms or additional points you have on your minds about this article.

Some developments in Iran.
They are abolishing the "morality police" and discussing more issues as well. It sounds positive, though I doubt this addresses all concerns. The title links to the article. I saw a comment on reddit saying in the news tomorrow they will have made an "ethics police." Very funny lib. The news tomorrow will probably be warmongering because the state department can't control protests any more.

The article: Investment in German and EU industrial projects such as battery-cell factories will be unfeasible if the region’s policymakers fail to control ballooning energy prices in the long-term, the head of Volkswagen’s namesake brand said. “Unless we manage to reduce energy prices in Germany and Europe quickly and reliably, investments in energy-intensive production or new battery-cell factories in Germany and the EU will be practically unviable,” VW brand chief executive Thomas Schaefer wrote Monday on LinkedIn. “The value creation in this area will take place elsewhere.” An outline for industrial-policy co-operation hatched by the French and German economy ministers last week “falls short in crucial areas, and does not address the envisaged priorities”, Schaefer said. Europe’s energy crisis is compounding pressure on how to respond to the US’s Inflation Reduction Act, President Joe Biden’s climate and tax law that aims to boost domestic production of electric cars and reduce reliance on China for battery components and materials. EU officials have said the subsidy programme violates World Trade Organisation rules and discriminates against non-US companies. Schaefer said the EU’s programmes don’t focus enough on “the short-term ramp-up, scaling and industrialisation of production” , criticising what he called “outdated and bureaucratic state-aid rules”. Volkswagen plans to have six battery factories in full operation across Europe by 2030 under its battery company PowerCo, which broke ground on its lead plant in Germany in July of this year and signed a €3 billion joint venture with Umicore in September for cathode material production. – Bloomberg



>Around Nov. 5 the police used one of these APCs to remove the blockade held by an armed group on Haiti’s petroleum port, Varreux, which is in Cite Soleil. The international media hailed this as a great victory. > >But some drone videos on YouTube estimate there are at least 20 blockades in Cite Soleil, the poorest neighborhood of Port-au-Prince — blockades that would have to be removed for gas and diesel fuel to move freely. Meanwhile, at least one Maltese tanker with fuel from Curacao was docked at a different terminal.


Algeria and China have signed the second five-year comprehensive strategic cooperation plan 2022-2026.
English source doesn't have anything so here's translation of the arabic, I have skipped translating some stuff because it's useless: > according to the same source, the foreign relations minister "Ramdan Lamara" and the foreign minister of the people's republic of China, "Wang Yi" have both declared the signing of "the second five year plan for the complete strategic cooperation between China and Algeria 2022-2026." > The source also defined that this plan aims for "continuing the relation between Algeria and China, in all ways inclusing economy business power agriculture technology and science space health and culture. > Both sides have announced their excitement for this opportunity... This will bring success and benefits to the friendly nations وحسب ذات المصدر, فقد أعلن كل من وزير الشؤون الخارجية والجالية الوطنية بالخارج, رمطان لعمامرة, وعضو المكتب السياسي للحزب الشيوعي الصيني, مستشار الدولة, وزير الشؤون الخارجية لجمهورية الصين الشعبية, وانغ يي, بشكل مشترك, عن التوقيع على "الخطة الخماسية الثانية للتعاون الاستراتيجي الشامل بين الجزائر والصين للسنوات 2022-2026". وتعتبر هذه الخطة, حسب نفس المصدر, "الثانية من نوعها في مجال التعاون الاستراتيجي الشامل التي تم التوقيع عليها بين البلدين منذ إقامة علاقات الشراكة الاستراتيجية الشاملة" بين الجزائر و الصين. و أوضح ذات البيان أن هذه الخطة تهدف إلى "مواصلة تكثيف التواصل والتعاون بين الجزائر والصين, في كافة المجالات بما فيها الاقتصاد والتجارة والطاقة والزراعة والعلوم والتكنولوجيا والفضاء والصحة والتواصل الانساني والثقافي, اضافة الى تعزيز المواءمة بين الاستراتيجيات التنموية للبلدين". وحسب بيان الوزارة, يعتزم الطرفان انتهاز فرصة تنفيذ هذه الخطة الخماسية "لتعميق التعاون العملي بينهما في كافة المجالات, بما يضمن استمرار إثراء مقومات علاقات الشراكة الاستراتيجية الشاملة بين البلدين, ويعود بالخير والمنفعة على البلدين والشعبين الصديقين".

>The one-day general strike occurred just as oil refinery workers at several depots owned by the corporate oil giants ExxonMobil and TotalEnergies, formerly known as Total Fina, had been on strike for over a month. Many of the striking oil workers, who have been conducting militant blockades, belong to CGT and voted in early October to continue their strike, despite government threats of criminal charges if they refuse orders to go back to work.

What’s up with all the Western assertions that Xi has become God Emperor of China? Like I took half a week off of focusing on Politics and now I see news segments saying he’s the new Mao(based!)
Like fr I took a small break from political talk/news for my own sanity, and next thing I see is nothing but big bad scary China flags and CPC Hammer+sickle and everyone is saying he’s transforming into Mao, like memes aside what the fuck has changed after the CPC’s meetings this past week? Is it just Westerners getting scared of nothing, because I genuinely wouldn’t doubt that
