Protesters rally across Germany against mega trade deal

TTP protestTens of thousands of demonstrators have taken to the streets across Germany in protest over a massive transatlantic trade deal, dealing a new blow to the disputed accord.    

In Berlin, as in Munich, there was a sea of flags on Saturday as people flocked to join the rallies despite the rain, carrying placards and banners representing dozens of anti-globalisation groups, NGOs, political parties and unions.    

"People are not letting their mood be ruined" by the weather, a spokeswoman for the organisers, Kathrin Ottovay, told the AFP news agency.


Five Years Later, Occupy Gets Its Moment

Occupy movementt was five years ago today that hundreds of activists descended on New York City’s Zuccotti Park, 5 blocks from the New York Stock Exchange, to “Occupy Wall Street”— a blunt but effective idea that resonated far wider that their original numbers would ever suggest.

The organizers were shrouded in mystery. Their goals were vague. But they sought to emulate the social-media driven protests in Egypt that (briefly) toppled a dictator and, in the words of one organizer “rise up and reform the global economic system.”


Former Defense Sec'y Bob Gates: Trump is 'beyond repair'

robert GatesNeither presidential candidate has offered a compelling vision on national security, former Defense Secretary Bob Gates writes in a scathing Wall Street Journal op-ed -- but Donald Trump is “beyond repair.”

Gates, who ran the Pentagon under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, is critical of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, citing her advocacy for the invasion of Libya, her reversal on trade agreements she supported as secretary of state, and her opposition to the troop surge in Iraq.

Trump behavior like male chimpTrump is set to debate his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton, on Sept. 26. When it happens, Goodall told The Atlantic she’ll be thinking of “Mike,” a chimpanzee she studied that displayed dominance by kicking kerosene cans, creating a racket that sent would-be challengers fleeing.

Unsurprisingly, Trump has already boasted that he will come out on top, telling The New York Times “I know how to handle Hillary.”


United States will not recognize outcome of Russian Crimea elections

US will not recognize Crimean election The United States announced that it will not honor the results of the Russian parliamentary elections planned in Crimea.

U.S. State Department spokesman John Kirby condemned the elections planned for Sunday, which will be the first time Crimea will elect members of the lower house of parliament since it was annexed by Russia in 2014, according to Al Masdar News.

"The United States does not recognize the legitimacy, and will not recognize the outcome, of the Russian Duma elections planned for Russian-occupied Crimea on September 18th," he said. "Our position on Crimea is clear: the peninsula remains an integral part of Ukraine. Crimea-related sanctions against Russia will remain until Russia returns control of Crimea to Ukraine."

No damage to surrounding structures was reported, and no runners or bystanders were in close proximity to the 9:30 a.m. blast, so no one was hurt, authorities said.
