Corporate Europe Observatory | globalresearch.ca | 2018-11-30
The gas industry is currently hyping so-called 'renewable gas' and its low-carbon potential.

Not So Black & White: NYT Touts Rural Voters, Buries Racism in Mississippi Election Analysis
Reed Richardson | fair.org | 2018-11-30
The New York Times ( 11/24/18) warns that Democrats speaking "boldly" risk turning off approximately one-seventh of the electorate. | Stop me if you've heard this one before: During a high-profile election, a major newspaper decides to stubbornly focus its coverage on an increasingly narrow sliver of white voters, while minimizing the racism that colors the electorate and the eventual Republican victor's campaign. | If this sounds like a repeat of the mainstream press's response to Trump's 2016 campaign, well, it is.

Medicare for All: As Healthcare Costs Soar, Momentum Grows to Guarantee Healthcare for All Americans
Democracy Now! | democracynow.org | 2018-11-30
As Democrats prepare to take control of the House, pressure is growing on the Democratic leadership to embrace Medicare for All. Nearly 50 newly Democratic members of Congress campaigned for Medicare for All. In the last year, 123 incumbent House Democrats also co-sponsored Medicare for All legislation, double the number who supported a Medicare for All bill in the previous legislative session. Meanwhile, pharmaceutical, insurance and hospital companies are paying close attention. As the Intercept's Lee Fang reports, over the summer the groups formed a partnership to fight the growing support for expanding Medica…

We need to speak out now.: | This October, the Indian authorities raided both Amnesty India and Greenpeace India's offices – and froze their bank accounts. | This has effectively stopped our vital human rights work there: work to end to violence against women, human rights education in schools and colleges, and ensuring human rights for everyone in India. | Sign the petition and tell the Indian Prime Minister to s…

Indian mining giant Adani has announced that it is ready to self-fund a scaled-down coalmine and rail project in Queensland's Galilee Basin. The company said that construction on the mine would begin next year. | The November 29 announcement came in the midst of a "fortnight of heat" over November 19-December 1, in which Stop Adani activists hope to turn up the heat on local MPs before they returned to Canberra for the final sitting days of parliament. | Particular emphasis was placed on targeting Labor MPs in the lead up to the party's national conference in Adelaide in December, with activists protesting on Nov…

In France, police launch attack on 'cost of living' protesters
stuart_m | greenleft.org.au | 2018-11-30
French police attacked demonstrators with tear gas and water cannons on November 24 as hundreds of thousands demanded President Emmanuel Macron resign over the rising cost of living. | The "yellow jacket" protests, named for the yellow high-vis jackets French motorists are obliged to have in their cars in case of breakdown, were sparked by rises in fuel duty that the government says is aimed at encouraging people to switch to electric cars. | Demonstrators built barricades in the streets and some ripped up paving stones and starting fires. | The government said the protests were a vehicle for the far right.

France shaken by ambiguous 'yellow jackets'
stuart_m | greenleft.org.au | 2018-11-30
In recent weeks, a new protest movement called the "yellow jackets" took to the streets of France. They are protesting the rise of petrol prices, issued by President Emmanuel Macron in order to cut CO2 emissions. | The yellow jackets movement, seemingly spontaneously born on the internet, immediately spread on a national scale. It brought hundreds of thousands of people on the streets of Paris on November 24. The protesters are worried because rising petrol prices will directly affect their everyday life. | However, in stating their apolitical stance, the yellow jackets are quite ambiguous. Firstly, they have ref…

Catrillanca joins Matiás Catrileo, Jaime Mendoza Collio, Alex Lemún, José Huenante and Rodrigo Melinaeo, all young Mapuche men who have been killed by Chilean police or disappeared while in police custody in recent years. | Protesters in Santiago trashed police vehicles and set fire to barricades constructed out of O-bikes, forcing the closure of main streets and three of the city's underground Metro stations.

An exceptional result for the Victorian Socialists
pip.hinman | greenleft.org.au | 2018-11-30
For a party only launched in May, Victorian Socialists achieved some exceptional results in the November 24 state elections. | In the Northern Metropolitan Region it won more than 4% of the votes and came fourth out of 19 parties in terms of first preference votes, behind only Labor, the Liberals and the Greens. | While the population in this inner Melbourne seat might be familiar with socialist and left ideas, the result represented something more as the campaign was able to engage a new range of activists. | In Western Victoria Region, having only decided in September to run, Victorian Socialists won 0.75% of t…

In 2008, the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations published a report titled US-Latin America Relations: A New Direction for a New Reality. Timed to influence the foreign policy agenda of the next US administration, the report asserted: "the era of the US as the dominant influence in Latin America is over." | Then, at the Summit of the Americas the next year, then-president Barack Obama promised Latin American leaders a "new era" of "equal partnership" and "mutual respect". | Goodbye Monroe Doctrine?: | Four years later, Obama's second…

Twelve months ago socialists from several different groups and backgrounds came together to see if they could get the first socialist elected to an Australian parliament in more 70 years. | At the time of writing, it looks like this project, Victorian Socialists, has been thwarted in its attempt to win a seat at the November 24 state elections by an undemocratic Legislative Council group ticketing process and the unprincipled preference deals that the system encourages. | Victorian Socialists candidate Steve Jolly came fourth in the Northern Metropolitan Region, with more than 4% of the vote.

Letter from the US: Midterms offer distorted picture of political state of play
stuart_m | greenleft.org.au | 2018-11-30
Looking at elections in the United States, deeper trends in the population can be difficult to discern as the choices are between two capitalist parties that are both staunch defenders of capitalist rule and US imperialism. | There are no mass workers' parties of any stripe. If there were, we may be in a better position to understand the relation of class forces. | This is not to say there are no differences between the two parties. There clearly are. At present, President Donald Trump has the backing of Republican politicians, with a few exceptions. Democratic politicians are generally opposed to Trump's authori…

Italian gov't stuck between economic and security measures

The Italian government is facing a very delicate situation, with its two major measures in the process of being ratified by the parliament, writes Daniele Fulvi. | Both the far-right League and the populist 5 Star Movement (M5S) that make up the coalition government know their credibility depends on the approval of economic measures that will provide for the citizenship income (the key point of M5S's agenda) and the security decree (strongly advocated by the League's leader Matteo Salvini). | However, while the security decree should be ratified by the Parliament without too much trouble, the economic manoeuvre i…

WA Labor opens the gate to fracking
pip.hinman | greenleft.org.au | 2018-11-30
The Western Australian Labor government announced it is opening up 5.2 million hectares — an area roughly the size of 75% of Tasmania — to potential fracking operations on November 27. | The decision follows advice from an inquiry carried out by the WA Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that said fracking in the Kimberley, Mid-West and Gascoyne regions would not pose a serious threat to people, agriculture or the environment. | Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a dangerous process that involves fracturing rock with pressurised liquid to mine unconventional gas. | Prior to last year's state ele…

When it comes to the infrastructure of genocide, you could illustrate it using almost any photo of a school, house, shop or village in the West Bank. You could bookmark a Google maps page of a particular West Bank town — then look again in three or six months time and note the destruction wrought. | This is one way of keeping track of the demolitions of Palestinian homes and Israel's attempts to impose an "Israeli only" identity on the landscape. | There has been a redoubling of Israeli efforts to evict Palestinians in occupied East Jerusalem and deny remaining Palestinian residents the right to a livelihoo…

Labor's promise to deliver in Victoria may well be elusive

While the final results of Victoria's November 24 state elections are yet to be announced, Labor looks set to go from 47 to 52 seats in the state's Legislative Assembly, after receiving a primary vote of 43%. | It also appears Labor will have 19 seats in the new Legislative Council, up from 14 seats, though it may pay a heavy price for preferencing some racist and anti-worker micro parties ahead of the Greens. | The Coalition received a combined primary vote of 36%, representing a 6.2% swing against it, with the Liberals predicted to go from 14 to 9 seats. The Liberals lost all its marginal seats in the south-eas…
