Simon Kuper's book about how a small group of 'Tory Toffs' who were at Oxford in the 1980s masterminded the Brexit project to reclaim their aristocratic birthright is highly entertaining, but not convincing.

You might think that if you debunk patently silly extreme weather claims, the entire fear agenda will go away. Think again. Climate change is now firmly embedded in the culture wars surrounding race, identity and gender.

Why didn't the US back Zelensky? The New York Times wrote earlier this year that his government could be overthrown by far-right groups if he ?agrees to a peace deal that in their minds gives too much to Moscow?.

"For the Women and the growing grassroots resistance movement in Costa Rica, CAFTA poses
a threat to their country's democracy and the environment. They say that it would dismantle the
social welfare system of the Country through extensive privatisation of essential services
and contribute to growing poverty and inequality".

CAFTA will extend the unequal distribution of resources experienced under the
North American Free Trade Agreement.(NAFTA)

Colombian Coverage:- http://colombia.indymedia.org

The CAFTA vote is Puerto Rico of the 07/10/07 has little coverage, the article above , published
by Isis women in Manila has links to the reasons why indigenous and grassroots activists
are opposing bi-laterals with the US. The image of the quilt banner which i am re-publishing here
rejects for Puerto Rican society the TLC's- Tratado de Libro Comercio. Whilst if you google the local
Puerto Rico press of which the eleven titles that are bunched together politically want the CAFTA
and closer relation to the States, the communites are rejecting of the perceived abuse of
their society by the US. The link to the latest WE! article looks at the economic and social
repurcussions on Chile and Thailand due to the Japanese FTA's:-
