LEAH WATSON—As we reflect on that night, we must remember what ignited these protests. Two months after the murder of George Floyd, on August 23, 2020, Kenosha Police shot a Black man, Jacob Blake, in the back multiple times, paralyzing him. Faced with this latest manifestation of law enforcement’s systemic mistreatment and disregard for the lives of Black and Brown people, people took to the streets of Kenosha. Kenosha County Sheriff David Beth oversaw law enforcement’s response to these protests, including the coordination of over 40 local, state, and federal agencies.

It seems the middle class is scared of a possible indefinite wave of social and economic disruptions. Their instinctive conservatism is kicking in, creating a possible social stasis with no easy resolution. El estallido social de 2019 hizo que las posturas de los ciudadanos se radicalizaran sobre temas como la inseguridad, lo que llevó a que posturas como la José Antonio Kast, pese a ser muchas veces políticamente incorrectas, se popularizaran de cara a las elecciones presidenciales. Les contamos desde Santiago.
The social outburst of 2019 made citizens’ positions radicalize on issues such as insecurity, which led to positions such as José Antonio Kast’s, despite often being politically incorrect, to become popular in the run-up to the presidential elections. We tell you about it from Santiago.

The great vaccine robbery: Pharmaceutical corporations charge excessive prices for COVID-19 vaccines while rich countries block faster and cheaper route to global vaccination
P. GREANVILLE—More than a year into the pandemic and I still find it hard to locate easily digestible facts for what should be a straightforward question: How much is Big Pharma charging for an average vaccine shot? The leading TV journos have pretty much ignored the topic, as if it did not matter, supposedly (I presume that’s their convenient rationale) because the government, as if by magic, is making the jabs free to the public, anyhow. But, friends, without going libertarian, we all know that when the government pays, WE pay, ultimately, because the moneys laid out are our taxes, our money —well so they say. (Contrary to common assumption, the government, which does NOT operate like a household, need not balance the books nor rely on taxes alone for its expenditures).

PG—This is a highly recommended conversation between two genuine anti-imperialist activists and communicators, Caleb Maupin, who needs little introduction to our audience, and Craig Pasta Jardulla, one of the pillars of the Convo Couch, a unique platform for authentic journalism and badly needed insightful leftist analysis. With his equally formidable co-host Fiorella Isabel —who is as brilliant as she is beautiful—and aided by their technical whiz Johnny, they produce impressive progressive and elegant content on a broad array of political topics almost every day, literally on a dime, something that dedicated people do around the globe, thereby keeping the flame of truth and the thirst for justice alive. Please support these people as much as you can, and do your part to advance revolutionary change.

GROVER FURR—In Chapter 11 of my 2011 book Khrushchev Lied, I studied the rehabilitation reports that had been published by 2003. I showed that none of them contains any evidence that the person “rehabilitated” was innocent. It was politically convenient for Gorbachev (and earlier for Khrushchev) to claim that many persons convicted of serious crimes during the “Stalin period” were falsely convicted. But Gorbachev’s men did not make public the investigative files that included the evidence against the defendants or – in the case of the Germans and Austrians – even the “rehabilitation” reports.
