_97037091_hi040719804
Anthony Scaramucci is the new head of Comunications at the White House

White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer has resigned in protest at an organisational shake-up.

Apparently, Mr Spicer disagreed with President Donald Trump’s appointment of a new communications director.

Instead, the Wall Street financier Anthony Scaramucci has been the mediator in this context.

Mr Spicer’s press briefings were very brief and he withdrew from camera in recent weeks. This happens when the White House faces a difficult situation concerning the apparent Russian meddling in last year’s US presidential election and with Mr Trump’s campaign team conspiracy with Moscow.

Venezuela: is opposition a general force or a fabrication?

 

two_cities.jpg_1718483346
While some people in West Caracas are working, on the East side the opposition supporters are disturbing and setting barricades.

A few weeks ago, Venezuelan opposition published a document with “more than 17 millions of signs” to stop the National Constituent Assembly that will take place this July, 30. Taking into account that the number of Venezuelan population is over 30 millions, the amount of signs reported by the opposition should be enough to solve the political crisis through international mediation.

But the truth is that the segments of Venezuelan population disagreeing with the government do not make the majority to make Nicolas Maduro resign.

Saddly, media only talk about the oppositors and forget the ones who are supporting the constitutional government. The news only refers to casualties of the opposition in the war they themselves exacerbated. Mostly of the deads have occured as a result of violent and criminal acts which will never be criticized.

Foro-de-Sao-Paulo-580x393

For the first time in the history of Latin America and the Caribbean countries have developing processes of revolutionary transformation or progressive social reform. But these achievements are threatened by a regional right-wing offensive to reverse social transformations in Venezuela, Bolivia, Ecuador, Uruguay, Nicaragua and El Salvador.

The biggest error of Latin American people is to forget a past of horror, of coups d`états, of plans for training mercenaries, of tortures, military dictatorships and thousands of disappeared progressive leaders. All those episodes were the result of conservative and imperialist groups action.

The restaurant has been under attacks in the last couple of months, but community support remains strong.

The Palestinian-owned restaurant Reem’s California Bakery, located in the heart of Oakland, California, has been under fascism and bigotry attacks for having a grand mural of former Palestinian political prisoner and revolutionary Rasmea Odeh.

“Now we’re terrorists ourselves,” Cece Carpio, one of four artists who created the mural in the community-centered-and-funded bakery.

Carpio explained that Reem Assil, the owner of Reem’s, and her colaboration for Palestinian liberation, had been targeted by pro-Israel groups in the bay area.

But it wasn’t until assil opened her eatery a few months ago, with Odeh’s profile on its walls, that the forces opposed to Carpio´s work.

US against Venezuela… perhaps against the world?

donald_trump.jpg_1718483346
Donald Trump promised ” strong and swift economic action” if Venezuela continues with the National Constituent Assembly.

Fernando Cutz, the director for South America of Donald Trump’s National Security Council, promised tough measures against Venezuela but didn´t give details in a White House briefing Tuesday.

Cutz told journalists that no decision has yet been taken on new sanctions against Venezuela, not specific actions nor the names of individuals or entities that might be targeted.

The briefing occurred soon after President Trump threatened to take “strong and swift economic action” if the Venezuelan government “continues with elections for a Constituent Assembly on July 30”.

Isn´t that threat similar to that Trump made to Cuban government when he appeared in Miami to promise same robust measures. And anyone can ask itself why trump administration is taking such hard decisions regarding other countries that is not U.S?
