Now West Should Sit On Its Backside, Shut Up, And Listen To “The Others”!

We were always told what to think; what is correct and what is wrong. By the white dudes living in or coming from Europe and North America. They knew everything. They were the most qualified. When I write “white,” I don’t mean just their race or color of their skin. To me, “white” is their culture, where they belong. Yes,[Read More...] → Read More

“Warrior” Steve Bannon Arrested As Trump’s America Is Crumbling

It often happens this way: extreme right-wingers, or call them ‘ultra-conservatives,’ either in the United States or Europe, suddenly fall from grace, after committing the most heinous crimes. Sometimes it is child abuse or sexual harassment, but most of the time, it is a corruption of tremendous proportions. In theory, in their own theory, it is not supposed to be[Read More...] → Read More

Anti-Racist Uprising In Minneapolis Infiltrated By Extreme-Right Hooligans

Text and photos: Andre Vltchek (Reportage from Minneapolis) The city of Minneapolis is where it all began. It is where the last drop fell on the surface of a proverbial overflowing lake, causing the dam to burst, consequently starting to destroy the foundations of the empire. A death of just one single man can, under certain dreadful circumstances, put into[Read More...] → Read More

Beirut Goes Up In Smoke

To see Beirut and its port area with a huge mushroom cloud hanging above is a truly surreal sight. But what is not surreal in battered Lebanese capital? A big part of the downtown looks flattened, thoroughly ruined. One of my Japanese friends based in Beirut exclaimed: “It looks like Hiroshima!” It does. Who is behind the carnage? What really[Read More...] → Read More

Our Planet Missed Opportunity To Unite And Fight Side-By-Side Against The Pandemic

It is time to stop irresponsible finger-pointing. All over the world, as this essay is being written, well over 17 million COVID-19 cases have been reported, and 676,000 people died. And instead of concentrating on serious research, trying to save human lives and attempting to stop the global calamity, ‘residents’ of the White House are spending all the energy on[Read More...] → Read More

Racism in Chile

Recently, when a retired Chilean U.N. employee tried to enter ECLAC (United Nations Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean, based in Santiago de Chile) to claim her pension in a bank inside the compound, her car was stopped by a U.N. security officer. She was asked to complete formalities. To her taste, the process was taking too much[Read More...] → Read More

Some Italian Thinkers Are Now Resisting Lies About The Soviet Union And WWII

Lying about world history is one of the main weapons of the Western imperialists, through which they are managing to maintain their control of the world. European and North American countries are inventing and spreading a twisted narrative about almost all essential historic events, be they colonialism, crusades, or genocides committed by the Western expansionism in all corners of the[Read… → Read More

How We Sold Soviet Union And Czechoslovakia For Plastic Shopping Bags

For months, this has been a story that I want to share with young readers in Hong Kong. Now it seems to be the really appropriate time when the ideological battle between the West and China is raging, and as a result of it, Hong Kong and the entire world is suffering. I want to say that none of it[Read More...] → Read More

Do Not Belittle Protesters In U.S By Calling Their Struggle A “Color Revolution”!

For almost a decade, I have been covering “Color Revolutions” in virtually all parts of the world. While making a film for TeleSur, I was facing Egyptian tanks, risking my life under sniper fire, getting roughed-up in the middle of clashes of the supporters of al-Sisi and Morsi. Together with Syrian commanders, I was also facing the terrorists in Idlib;[Read More...] → Read More

It Is All About Race. Awful Hypocrisy To Say It’s Not!

While I am following closely various discussions on Western mass media and social media, simultaneously engaging in several direct exchanges, one overwhelming leitmotif that I see is clearly emerging: “What is happening in the United States (and the UK, France and other parts of Western Empire) is not really about the race. Let us protest peacefully, let us not allow[Read More...] → Read More

Western racism and the world

Erkin Oncan interviews Andre Vltchek EO: How do you evaluate the George Floyd protests? Do these actions lead to a positive permanent change in the country? Is there a possibility like that? AV: George Floyd’s death was the last drop, at least for many. The country has exploded. Or more precisely, many of those who were, for years and decades[Read More...] → Read More

COVID-19 Will Devastate Indonesia Which Is Already Collapsing Under Brutal System

In Jakarta, doctors are dying, while common people do not know which data to believe, anymore. It appears that even some government officials do not trust government statistics. People in the slums are attacking ambulances, preventing patients infected with COVID-19 from being taken to hospitals. The novel coronavirus is a stigma. Tests are resisted, death certificates falsified. Social… → Read More

Anti-Communism Is A Fundamentalist Religion, Now Followed By Billions

Happy Birthday Comrade Lenin! 150 years ago, on April 21, 1870, Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov, alias Lenin, was born. According to many, he was the greatest revolutionary of all times, a man who gave birth to both internationalism and anti-imperialism. It is time to “revisit Communism”. It is also time to ask some basic, essential questions: “How is it possible that[Read More...] → Read More

“The World Cannot Breathe!” Squashed By The U.S.-A Country Built On Genocide And Slavery

More than two centuries of lies are now getting exposed. Bizarre tales about freedom and democracy are collapsing like houses of cards. One man’s death triggers an avalanche of rage in those who for years, decades and centuries, have been humiliated, ruined, and exterminated. It always happens just like this throughout the history of humankind – one single death, one[Read More...] → Read More

“Battle” Against COVID-19 In A Fragmented World, Has Ruined Billions Of Lives

It is not only about physically surviving the pandemic. People miss people, and places, sometimes desperately. And they die, when separated. We are bombarded by briefings and numbers. We are scared into submission by horrifying medical stories, by shocking images, and then, simultaneously, by predictions of economic and social downfall. Day and night, day and night. But somehow, so often during… → Read More

The Soviet Victory Over Nazism 75 Years Ago, And COVID-19

How could the Great Patriotic War in which the Soviet people (including many members of my own family) lost at least 25 million lives, have anything in common… → Read More

Cold War Of Trump/Navarro Vs China: More Dangerous Than COVID-19 – Countercurrents

It is getting ugly, extremely ugly. It is increasingly looking like a war – at least a new ‘cold’, ideological war. But in the shadow of COVID-19, it goes almost unnoticed. The blind horseman, who hates China intuitively, without knowing hardly anything about it, is leading the pack, pushing his president into a confrontation with the most populous country on[Read More...] → Read More

New Indonesian Capital In Borneo- From Rural Misery To Grody Dreams Of Urban Glory – Countercurrents

Text and photos: Andre Vltchek and Mira Lubis An old road between Balikpapan and Samarinda passes through the poor villages, through rural slums, as well as stalls selling second-rate local fruits. The cheap, unhygienic eateries, are now half-empty. While the traffic is still heavy here, the ‘real action’ is somewhere else; a few kilometers away, where the new motorway is[Read More...] → Read More

The White House And Western Media Are Smearing, And Humiliating The WHO – Countercurrents

For decades, the United States has been antagonistic to the most important international organization on Earth – the United Nations. It is because the organization has periodically rebelled and refused to take direct diktats from Washington. Although greatly influenced by the West, the U.N. has always insisted on a certain degree of independence, for which it has been criticized, bullied[Read… → Read More

Peter Navarro: A Man Who Smears China Without Knowing Much About It – Countercurrents

For many years now, it has been obvious that in both North America and Europe, smearing and provoking China has become an extremely lucrative business, even career. There are entire ‘institutes’ and NGOs dedicated strictly to such activities, and there are individuals who are groomed to become anti-Chinese warriors. Peter Navarro, a neo-con and a right-wing combatant, has been, for[Read More...] → Read More
