278,000 Brazilians have died from Covid-19.

New documents show that the US pressured the Brazilian government not to buy the Russian vaccine, likely killing thousands of Brazilians.

My latest in @BrasilWire:
The documents also show that the US encouraged Panama not to accept Cuban doctors into the country.

Panama now has one of the worst Covid-19 rates in the region.
EUA pressionaram Brasil a não comprar a vacina russa Sputnik V

Informação está em relatório obtido pelo Brasilwire e revela também pressão contra atuação de médicos cubanos na América Latina

The British establishment protected Augusto Pinochet from extradition for crimes against humanity

The British establishment is now pursuing Julian Assange for exposing them
The lawyer that brought the case against Pinochet to the UK courts, Baltasar Garzón, was also on Assange's legal team.

Clare Montgomery QC defended Pinochet in the late 1990s, and represented the Swedish prosecution against Assange in the early 2010s.
In November 2017, David Morales (head of UC Global, a security firm contracted to spy on Assange in the Ecuadorian embassy) "spoke about breaking into" Garzón's office. Two weeks later, men in balaclava ransacked it.

There is also evidence Garzón was followed & photographed.

The UK high court has just ruled that Juan Guaido, who has never ran for presidential office in his life, is the legitimate president of Venezuela.

This makes a total mockery of the UK courts system. Thread:
Most countries, including the UN security council, recognise Maduro, and many of those that don't were aggressively lobbied by the US.

Before Juan Guaidó pronounced himself president of Venezuela in January 2019, fewer than 1 in 5 Venezuelans even knew who he was.

Since then, Guaidó has led a regime change operation involving US mercenaries, alleged terrorism, and corruption scandals.

What’s going on with the latest smear piece about Jeremy Corbyn? (round 2: thread)

The Daily Telegraph’s front page tomorrow will claim that ‘Corbyn’s dossier’ on selling the NHS to US corporations ‘points to Russians’:

2/The Daily Telegraph is owned by the billionaire Barclay brothers. Its article on Corbyn is based on research done by the Atlantic Council and social media analytics firm Graphika.
3/The Atlantic Council has received upwards of $1 million from the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office. It also receives comparable amounts from Facebook and the Embassy of the United Arab Emirates to the United States.
