Venezuela: People’s forces register another electoral victory

On December 10, mayoral elections were held in Venezuela’s 335 municipalities, marking the third set of successfully held elections in less than five months. Elections were held in July for the National Constituent Assembly and in October for state governors.

Canada seeks expanded military role in Asia-Pacific

Picket and signature collection, November 23, 2017, at the University Skytrain station in Vancouver. More than 2,500 Canadians thus far have signed the Canadian Petition Against War and Aggression on the Korean Peninsula.

While Canada claims it is for diplomacy and solidarity, it is not well known that the Canadian military has joined the massive annual U.S.-Republic of Korea joint military exercises Key Resolve and Foal Eagle in the spring and Ulchi-Freedom Guardian in August as well as others, all aimed at provoking the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) into a war on the Korean Peninsula. In September 2017, after participating in joint naval manoeuvres with the U.S., south Korean and Japanese military, HMCS Ottawa and HMCS Winnipeg docked at the U.S. naval base on Jeju Island which the people are fighting to demilitarize.

Warmongering meeting on Korea in Vancouver: Canada is being disingenuous

Canada will co-host along with the United States the “United Nations Command Sending States Meeting” in Vancouver on January 16, as part of what U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson calls “the pressure campaign against North Korea.” Preparations for this event began prior to November of last year. Under the guise of supporting a rules-based international order, the meeting brings together the original 21 aggressor countries that sent troops to wage the brutal war against Korea between 1950 and 1953.[1] The war against Korea took the lives of over 4 million Korean citizens and amongst other crimes, razed the city of Pyongyang to the ground.

Monopoly media ‘failed’ to connect 2017’s extreme weather to climate crisis: study

“We can’t fix the climate crisis if we aren’t talking about it. It’s critical that the media start reporting on the crisis with the quality and quantity it merits. We’re talking about the greatest challenge of our time.” | JKW JOHNSON, commondreams.org

"Given the gravity and urgency of the climate crisis, as well as a surfeit of relevant, newsworthy developments, one would expect U.S. media to report on climate and clean energy issues daily," Public Citizen's David Arkush writes. (Photo: Public Citizen)

Despite the fact that 2017 saw a flurry of devastating and “record-shattering” hurricanes, enormously destructive wildfires, and extreme droughts, a new report by Public Citizen published on Friday concludes that major American media outlets “largely failed” to connect these weather events to the broader global climate crisis.

Rebuilding Syria, the other war

Terrorist groups financed by the West and their allies have caused enormous human and material damage in Syria | SANA

(December 19) –Although a victory may appear at hand, the reality is that another war is only just beginning in Syria, a war to rebuild the country.

Shots are still being fired and missiles launched. There are remote areas where terrorists remain entrenched, and cells in cities that will not allow the country to be declared free of these elements. And perhaps most seriously, a so-called opposition, closely liked to armed groups like Al Nusra, continues to insist they will only lay down their weapons when President Bashar al-Assad is removed.  Continue reading
