Anti-corruption protests will be banned in the Victoriei Square in Bucharest between December 2 and December 20 after the Bucharest City hall approved the organization of a Christmas market in the square during this period.#crime #politics #corruption #fail #eu #europe
It creates conflicts with the laws of countries in #Europe and elsewhere around the globe, which are intended to protect #privacy interests and restrict the disclosure and transfer of personal data to a third country.If the U.S. get access to data in other countries, will these other countries also get access to data in the U.S.?
How, then, did the country move from #cosmopolitanism back to nationalism and nativism? The short answer is that Britain’s #rebranding became a victim of its own success. By accommodating previously excluded citizens, the new national story made those at the center of the older, narrower version feel like a threatened minority. And when the #Brexit #referendum rolled around, they fought back.#politics #EU #Europe #UK #news #people #fear #problem
Unlike #Trump, she has no malicious intent. She did not set out to destroy the agreements she helped to create. But the #Earth’s systems do not respond to mission statements or speeches or targets. They respond to hard fact. What counts, and should be judged, as she seeks a fourth term as German #chancellor in the elections on Sunday, is what is done, not what is said. On this metric, her performance has been a planetary #disaster.This Sunday, the sole ruler of Germany (Merkel) is confirmed in a so called democratic #election so that she can continue to govern.
Since 2005, little #girls can decide: Do I become a #hairdresser — or #chancellor?This Sunday, the sole ruler of Germany (Merkel) is confirmed in a so called democratic #election so that she can continue to govern.
A lack of leadership, vision, and #solidarity based on human rights principles are at the core of the European Union’s dismal response to #refugee and migration challenges. The #mismanagement and politicization of a surge in boat #migration in 2015, when over one million migrants and #asylum seekers traveled to the EU by sea, has led to a humanitarian and political #crisis largely of the EU’s own making that needs to be addressed with the utmost urgency.#crime #justice #HumanRights #fail #news #Europe #help
There are a lot more people than people think that are right-wing on the normal side of #YouTube.
"The European countries are deporting Afghans back," she says. "But many of them have only two ways in front of them: to became drug addicted, or to join the Islamic State group or #Taliban who pay $600 per month for their fighters."
By establishing a clear link between #terrorism and #migration in his speech, #Trump qualified migration as a major security threat that requires joint military action in order to be mitigated.

Q: In what kind of moment, what kind of situation, was the photograph taken in which you are apparently doing your best to have a discussion with a fan of neo-Nazism? What were your feelings like at that moment?
A: That was at the first stopping point for the neo-Nazi men and women, near #Moravské Square. They gave some speeches there. The action we were attending had called on us to dance, play music, sing, so we did... We had banners and we chanted. I don't like to talk about this particular interaction, because I want to describe things as they actually happened, and at the time I did not suspect that I would be asked to recount it for thousands of people, so I don't remember it very specifically. The man in the photograph is talking with me and a friend of mine about borders, migrants, and the state. I did my best to explain to him that when lives are at stake, then borders and states cease to exist. I was not afraid there - if anyhing had happened to me, I would have gotten over it, but if I had decided to stay quiet, I would never have recovered from that. Naturally the situation was an experience, but direct contact with somebody of such a different opinion was not unpleasant for me.

Only four things, Mr #Scheidel argues, cause large-scale levelling. #Epidemics and #pandemics can do it, as the Black Death did when it changed the relative values of land and #labour in late medieval #Europe. So can the complete #collapse of whole states and economic systems, as at the end of the Tang dynasty in China and the disintegration of the western Roman #Empire. When everyone is pauperised, the rich lose most. Total #revolution, of the Russian or Chinese sort, fits the bill. So does the 20th-century sibling of such revolutions: the war of mass-mobilisation.
