Far right hate is spiralling out of control – and politicians aren’t doing enough to stop it | The Independent

Meanwhile, the elevation of Gerard Batten to leader of Ukip heralded its shift to becoming a fully-blown far right party and its adoption of a strongly anti-Muslim agenda.

The shift to the right coincided with a move to street politics, with Batten now a regular speaker on Democratic Football Lads Alliance (DFLA) protests and the appointment of Stephen Lennon as his advisor on grooming gangs.

Polling for our report found that Lennon continues to be the most high profile far-right activist in the UK, with 55 per cent of Britons having heard of him, making him better known than some of our national politicians. Of those, 37 per cent have seen or heard one of his videos on social media. This rises to 57 per cent of 18-24 year olds.

Venezuela – An Appeal to Russia, China and all Unaligned Countries for Support of Sovereign Venezuela Peter Koenig 24 January 2019 | Uprootedpalestinians’s Blog

Chevron, Halliburton Cheer On US Venezuela Coup

WASHINGTON — For much of the past twenty years, critics of U.S. foreign policy have noted that it is often countries with sizeable oil reserves that most often find themselves the targets of U.S.-backed “humanitarian” interventions aimed at “restoring democracy.” Analysis of the nearly two-decades-long U.S. effort aimed at regime change and “democracy promotion” in Venezuela has long linked such efforts to the fact that the South American country has the world’s largest proven oil reserves.

However, the current U.S. effort to topple the government led by Chavista politician Nicolás Maduro has become notable for the openness of the “coup architects” in admitting that putting American corporations – Chevron and Halliburton chief among them — in charge of Venezuelan oil resources is the driving factor behind this aggressive policy.
