Fidel Castro, Cuba’s former president and leader of the Communist revolution, has died aged 90, state TV has announced.

It provided no further details.

Fidel Castro ruled Cuba as a one-party state for almost half a century before handing over the powers to his brother Raul in 2008.

His supporters praised him as a man who had given Cuba back to the people. But his opponents accused him of brutally suppressing opposition.

Canada: UN Expert Panel Warns of Anti-Black Racism in Criminal Justice System – Commentary

The State Of Race Relations In Canada: UN Expert Panel Warns of Systemic Anti-Black Racism in Canada’s Criminal Justice System

By Yvonne Sam

Findings of the United Nations Working Group on People of African Decent

Opinion - commentary -analysisFor the multiplicity of times that I have given thought of where Canada, and her provinces, stands as it relates to race relations, I am immediately reminded of a marriage in crisis. Here is the root of the problem. One spouse is committed to making the marriage work, while the other party is resistant to, or non-committal about, the eventual outcome.

Needless to state, that unless there is some form of mediation or timely intervention, the marriage is on a collision course.  Continue reading

What the world worries about – The Economist

What the world worries about

 

 

BREXIT in June, then Trump in November and next year the threat of Marine Le Pen, the leader of France’s Eurosceptic party. Populism has rarely been so popular, and Western democratic and international institutions look increasingly fragile. A recent survey of 25 countries by Ipsos MORI, a pollster, reveals the widespread discontent on which populists have preyed. In Britain and America 60% and 63% of respondents said their country was on the wrong track. In perpetually disgruntled France, that figure is a whopping 89%.

The underlying causes of this dissatisfaction vary by country. Unemployment is the main worry in France, but not in Britain or America, where immigration and terrorism dominate. Germans, who will hold elections next year, fret about poverty and inequality. Those who vote for populist parties and politicians often focus on single issues at the expense of other problems. In Britain, less-educated white voters, who are suspected to have voted in droves for leaving the European Union, may find they suffer the most from an alternative settlement rather than full membership.

And convincing those who fail to see the benefits of the status quo can be difficult. In France, the proportion of people who worry about unemployment is five times the actual rate of the unemployed. In Britain, anxiety over immigration is more than three times higher than the percentage of the population who are immigrants. Telling voters that things they worry about are bad, but not as bad as they think, is unlikely to win over a sceptical public.
