Climate Strike: Week 2
William Mansell / ABC News (New York)
For the second consecutive week, climate change demonstrators took to the streets across the globe to highlight the growing climate crisis.
Fury in Haiti
Jane Regan / NACLA Report (New York)
A three-week gasoline shortage—caused because the government, which purchases gas on behalf of distributors, owes suppliers $100 million—led to outrage.
UK Labour Party Conference Sprints Left
Sarah Jaffe / The American Prospect (Washington DC)
Labour’s best hope for victory in a general election, just as it was in 2017, is to get people talking about something besides Brexit.
The Left should take the lead, prepare itself to plough its own furrow and be in it for the long haul (as distinct from falling for short-term and short-sighted “strategic” electoral arrangements/understandings either with opportunist parties or with ideologically right-oriented formations).
Egypt: New Wave of Protest
Sharif Abdel Kouddous / Democracy Now! (New York)
Thousands have taken to the streets to demand the resignation of President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi over accusations of corruption.
Nuria Barbosa León / Granma (Havana)
Havana will again serve as a meeting place for those who defend peace, solidarity, and justice, November 1-3. The event will propitiate debate and interaction around a program of concrete action to condemn the brutal economic, commercial, financial blockade imposed unilaterally by the U.S. government.
