SPECIAL REPORT: A new article in the Journal of Virus Eradication published yesterday explored the cost of mass producing several drugs that have shown distinct promise in the global fight against #coronavirus.
The research, by Dr. Andrew Hill from the Department of Translational Medicine, University of #Liverpool, found treatments used to treat #SARS and #Ebola, could be produced for just $0.93 per daily dose, and a combination of #HepatitisC medications can be made for just $0.39.
This would translate to just $9 and $5 respectively for a full course of treatment.
Instead, those #drugs are being sold for thousands of dollars each, proving that the private, for-profit #pharmaceutical industry is ill-equipped to handle a health crisis like #COVID19 .

Independent journalist @EvaKBartlett has been reporting from Donbass since early in the US-Russia proxy war despite knowing that she’s on a hit list of so-called “enemies of Ukraine.” The list was made by a group called “Mirotvorets” which means peacemakers in English.
This week we learned that @rogerwaters had been added to the list of "Enemies of Ukraine" for speaking out on the nature of the US-Russia proxy war.
Bartlett’s reporting bears witness to the reality of Ukrainians who have lived in the war zone since 2014 when the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics declared independence after the Maidan Coup.

#Facebook, #TikTok, #Google, and #Twitter recruiting their censors from a college of “War Studies” couldn’t be a lazier metaphor for their role in the war for the minds of the public.
They know that they’re a propaganda tool for the most powerful people in the world.
Empires have always used their elite schools and universities as recruitment facilities for their most brutal officers.

Israeli Occupation Forces have redirected their genocidal violence from Gaza — where they wounded 360, and murdered 44 Palestinians including 16 children this weekend — to the West Bank where they assassinated 3 Palestinians and wounded 60 more today.

The target of the assassination, Ibrahim al-Nablusi, was a resistance leader with the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade.
His last recorded words: “Take care of the homeland. I am surrounded now but I will fight until I become a martyr. I love my mother. Don’t abandon the gun.” Image
Ibrahim al-Nablusi had earned the moniker “the lion of Nablus” for his role as a leader resisting Israel's illegal settler-colonialist repression and violence.

On May 10, 2021 the Al-Qassam Brigade issued a warning to Israel: "Withdraw your settlers and soldiers from the East Jerusalem neighborhood of Sheikh Jarrah and the Al-Aqsa Mosque or the armed resistance groups will carry out military operations."

#GazaFightsBack @dancohen3000
Israeli leadership ignored the warning and organized a provocative march of thousands of Israeli nationalists through occupied East Jerusalem.

Palestinian armed groups followed through on their warning and sent a barrage of rockets toward Jerusalem.

"[Palestinian armed resistance groups] were aiming to send a very strong message: As Israel comes to disrupt life in Gaza, destroys the economic infrastructure in Gaza, creates this awful genocidal experience that's felt at the collective level of Gazan society..."
