Disinformation that Huawei 5G Network is a threat to national security. Second of two parts. Part One is here. | LOUIS LANG
The U.S. is making the penetration of Huawei’s 5G network in the North American market an issue of the “danger of Chinese espionage which is a security threat for the whole world.” It is part of the fierce competition in the telecommunications field amongst the largest telecommunications companies, in which the U.S. seeks to maintain its dominance through its links with the oligopolies that are already directly linked to the U.S. military and security apparatus.

Disinformation over what’s at stake. First of two parts. Part Two is here. | LOUIS LANG
The attacks against Huawei and individual officers of the company come at a time when inter-monopoly competition in the high-tech communications sector becomes fiercer each day. Invoking the rule of law to justify Canada’s arrest of a Huawei executive rings hollow when we see the elaborate international U.S. campaign to discredit and undermine Huawei. This includes international political and military threats designed to intimidate countries to stop them from incorporating Huawei technologies in their 5G networks. Continue reading →
Refusal to uphold international rule of law is a serious matter of concern | Three articles from TML Weekly, John Pilger and Craig Murray
Protest outside British Parliament after a court ruling barring Chagos Islanders from returning to their homeland, October 22, 2008.
TML Weekly welcomes the February 25 ruling of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the Chagos Islands. In a majority decision of 13 to 1, with all the judges from EU countries amongst those finding against the UK, the ICJ ruled that the continued British occupation of the Chagos Islands is illegal and ordered the UK to return the islands to Mauritius “as rapidly as possible.” The islands were seized by the British in 1965 and the people forcibly removed in 1971 to permit the U.S. to build a military base on the island of Diego Garcia. This base plays a criminal role in the U.S. striving for world hegemony. Continue reading →
David Wise–the prize-winning journalist and author who in 1964 co-wrote one of the first best-selling history books critical of the CIA–passed away on October 8th, 2018, in Washington, DC. He was 88.
Co-written with fellow journalist Thomas B. Ross, The Invisible Government became a best-seller with its revelations of — until then — secret CIA operations in Iran, Guatemala, and other countries. Continue reading →
Canada is trying to position Juan Guaidó in the Caribbean to the detriment of the constitutional government of Nicolás Maduro. The U.S. needs to break Venezuela’s strategic alliance with Caribbean nations and shift the voting balance in the Organization of American States. Canada, which has meddled in the British West Indies with “aid” and warships for decades, is sent as its errand boy to pull the chestnuts out of the fire. Yet the Liberal duplicity and intrigue is to feign that it is merely acting in a disinterested manner at the request of the same Guaidó. According to this fable, Guaidó himself is not able to make such an overture! A document from Global Affairs admits “there has been no consensus among the countries of the America.” | Misión Verdad
Meeting of Caricom, February 26-27 in St. Kitts-Navis reiterated their rejection of outside interference in Venezuela.
The online Misión Verdad periodical has access to a confidential document (“Non-Paper”) drafted by the government of Canada, led by Justin Trudeau, with which they tried to build a bridge of contact between the president of Venezuela’s National Assembly (in contempt) and some countries of the Eastern Caribbean by proposing an instrument to displace Petrocaribe.

(March 12) – The United States will no longer consider its allies as protectorates. Therefore, they ask them to pay the cost of their protection, otherwise they will withdraw. This was announced by President Trump on January 17 at the Pentagon, which was presented in February at NATO, but was released only this week. A decision that applies to all allies, from Japan to Germany. The problem is that Washington is also asking its allies to align with its positions … as they did as protectorates. Continue reading →

The Revolutionary Government strongly condemns the sabotage perpetrated against the Venezuelan electrical power system, which is a terrorist act intended to harm the defenceless population of an entire nation, and taking it hostage in the non-conventional war launched by the government of the United States against the legitimate government headed by comrade Nicolás Maduro Moros and the civic and military union of the Bolivarian, Chavista people.
A recent news item, “Canada at Odds with Cuban Ally Over Maduro’s Fate,” written by Evan Dyer, is a continuation of CBC News’ campaign of vicious lies and distortions about the struggle of the Venezuelan people who are defending their independence and sovereignty against foreign aggression.

In Support of Revolutionary Cuba | MARGARET VILLAMIZAR
In a spurious article published on March 3 titled “Canada at odds with Cuba ‘ally’ over Maduro’s fate,” CBC’s Evan Dyer appears to be trying to prime Canadians to accept a new round of illegitimate activity by the Trudeau government – this time appeasing the U.S. imperialists aiming their guns at Cuba as well as Venezuela.

A poisonous adult frog of the Colombian species Golden Dart has so many toxins that it can kill 1,000 humans. It is called the Iván Duque.
Colombian president meets with Admiral Craig Faller, November 30, 2018 in Bogotá. Appointed commander US Southern Command just two days earlier, the American viceroy immediately left for Colombia to meet with the frog.
Hanoi, Mar 2 (Prensa Latina) – The much-expected second Summit between Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un concluded on Thursday here without agreements, but it was not Vietnam”s fault: the scenario deserved significant rapprochement between the United States and North Korea. Things went as planned, but Vietnam, as a country, and Hanoi, as the venue of the meeting, can rest assured that they created all conditions to get more results. Continue reading →
With less than four weeks to go before Britain is due to leave the European Union at 11pm on Friday, March 29, the House of Commons is very little nearer to agreeing what the Withdrawal Agreement should be. The Deal agreed between the government negotiating team and the EU leaders, an agreement which has been endorsed by the other 27 EU member countries, has been rejected by MPs. Changes to the Deal have been ruled out by the EU negotiators. Theresa May has attempted to negotiate changes with them without success, while being unable to convince MPs to accept the Deal that has been negotiated. Continue reading →
On Sunday, March 3, the CBC ran a tendentious and manipulative article making slanderous claims about the relations between Cuba and Venezuela. The Ambassador of Cuba to Canada HE Josefina Vidal, sent the CBC the following fitting reply.
U.S. and Canada must stop trying to overthrow the Venezuelan government
Windsor Peace Coalition, March 2, 2019
To be considered humanitarian, any international assistance offered to a country must be based simply on the notion that as human beings we should support one another when we are in need, not on ulterior motives. In the case of Venezuela today alleged humanitarian aid is being used to try and incite a civil war and foreign aggression led by the United States. Continue reading →
Demonstration in Edmonton, February 16, 2019, one of many across Canada condemning U.S. plans for military intervention and the despicable role of the Canadian government in supporting it.
On February 19, U.S. President Donald Trump delivered a speech at the International University of Miami in which he threatened to intervene militarily in Venezuela and as much as said Cuba and Nicaragua were next on his list for regime change. The speech elaborated Trump’s depraved doctrine which advocates immorality, corruption, anarchy, violence and war on a grand scale. Continue reading →
In his speech at the International University of Miami on February 19, Trump called him a “brave Venezuelan police officer” and “extraordinary and great person.” His words were broadcast in the city of Miami, in an act with the community of Venezuelans living in that country, in what seemed an attempt to win over the inhabitants of the state of Florida with a view on the elections of 2020.

Twenty-three years have passed since the Helms-Burton Act was approved. Its authors are barely remembered, but Cuba is still here, free and sovereign, and more committed than ever to our social project | Elson Concepción Pérez
The Trump administration is threatening to unleash a flood of lawsuits involving Cuba, which no U.S. president has ever done. It has set a deadline of March 2 to announce whether it will create, in the words of the National Lawyers Guild, “a second embargo” of Cuba — “one that would be very difficult to dismantle in the future.” Continue reading →
