As France returns to the polls, can Mélenchon’s left deprive Macron of a majority?

“Jean-Luc Mélenchon pulled off an extraordinary PR coup,” said Pascal Perrineau, a professor of political science at Sciences-Po Paris. “Asking the French to elect him prime minister might sound absurd, but it was an extremely shrewd strategy. It allowed him to both supplant Le Pen as Macron’s chief opponent and cast himself as the pillar of a revamped left.”

The PR stunt was soon followed by another tour de force, which even critics have hailed as a masterstroke. In the days following Macron’s re-election, Mélenchon and his team engineered what many had come to see as an impossible feat: a broad alliance of France’s deeply fractured left, united around a common policy platform and fielding a single candidate in each of France’s 577 constituencies.

It is too late to find understanding with Russia – Zelensky

„We respect international law, we respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of each state. But please do not forget that the war is being waged on our soil. This is a war on our land. Therefore, we put pressure on Russia, on our land. There is no longer any need to reassure the military and political leadership of the Russian Federation. It is too late. We needed preventive sanctions, when we had to talk to them on a daily basis, implement specific financial and economic sanctions before a full-scale invasion,“ he said on Saturday, speaking at the 19th Asian Shangri-La Dialogue Security Summit.

„Now there is no gray area. If you are for peace now, then you support Ukraine, if you support this particular war, then you find mutual understanding with Russia. That is all.

Analysten sehen russische Zermürbungstaktik

Nach Ansicht von Analysten setzt Moskau womöglich genau darauf: dass der Schock über den Krieg nachlässt und das Interesse erlahmt. Denn je länger sich der Konflikt hinzieht und festfährt, desto höher ist demnach aus russischer Sicht die Chance, die Ukraine zu einer Einigung zu zwingen.

Jeder Kriegsmonat kostet die Ukraine laut der Denkfabrik Penta Center umgerechnet 4,7 Milliarden Euro. Daher sei das Land auf den Rückhalt der westlichen Staaten angewiesen. Für einen Sieg brauche es nicht nur modernere Waffen, sondern auch die westliche Entschlossenheit, den wirtschaftlichen Druck auf Russland aufrechtzuerhalten, um Moskau zu schwächen.

Julian Assange’s wife Stella Moris reveals how they raise children together while he is in jail waiting an extradition decision By Stella Moris

We don’t know how long our children have left with their father. We don’t know if we can visit him or even talk to him on the phone. If the extradition goes ahead, US authorities retain the right to put Julian in conditions so cruel that no one in his position is likely to survive.

It is impossible for Julian and me to escape a feeling that he is on death row. Our weekly visits may be the only time we have left together. But for how much longer? A few months more, a few weeks, a few days and then only a few hours? I fear in the end we will count the minutes and the seconds…

Julian Assange’s Australian lawyer who counts Amal Clooney and Amber Heard as friends says she has reached settlement with government ‚over breach of her human rights after it admitted she was likely put under covert surveillance‘

She said: ‚The UK Government has now admitted that its surveillance and information-sharing arrangements with the US violated my rights. That includes in relation to the protection of confidential journalistic material.

‚This follows a pattern of unlawful spying on Julian Assange and his legal team, and it raises grave concerns about government interference with journalistic material and privilege.

‚It also raises serious questions about what information the UK and US governments have been sharing about Mr Assange’s case against extradition to the US.‘

Suche nach britischem Journalisten: „Offenbar menschliches Gewebe gefunden“

Angehörige des festgenommenen Verdächtigen warfen der Polizei Folter vor. Polizisten hätten Amarildo da Costa de Oliveira geschlagen, ihn mit Pfefferspray traktiert, seinen Kopf unter Wasser gedrückt und seien ihm auf die Beine getreten, sagte dessen Bruder Osnei der Nachrichtenagentur AP. Sie hätten ihn auch unter Drogen gesetzt. „Sie wollten, dass er gesteht, aber er ist unschuldig“, sagte Osenei da Costa de Oliveira, der seinen Bruder im Gefängnis besucht hatte.

Die lokalen Sicherheitsbehörden wollten sich nicht äußern, weil der Fall von der Bundespolizei untersucht werde. Die Bundespolizei reagierte nicht auf Anfragen zu den Vorwürfen.
