Protesters throughout Israel have set up tents in the street to decry the country’s sky-high housing costs, reminiscent of the massive cost-of-living demonstrations that swept the country in 2011. A protest camp was set up in Tel Aviv on Sunday evening, joining the encampments that have been set up in several locations across the country in recent days. Other encampments were located in Jerusalem, Haifa, Beersheba, Pardes Hanna, Holon and Rosh Ha’ayin. They said that a large demonstration is to take place at Tel Aviv’s Habima Square on July 2
The 2022 tents on Rothschild Boulevard went up a full week after the launch of the current protest movement, which officially began on June 13. On that day, the first tent compounds were seen in the north and south of the country – first in Pardes Hannah, and then Be’er Sheva, followed quickly by similar efforts in Holon and Rosh Ha’ayin, and subsequently Ramat Gan, Herzliya, Kfar Sava and elsewhere.
The fact that the current movement emerged – and is growing – in the periphery “testifies to the fact that it’s a truly grassroots phenomenon, and suffering is happening around the country,” says Guy
Wer glaubt, dass es sich bei dieser Auseinandersetzung zwischen einer gewinnorientierten Fundraising-Website und Menschen, die es satthaben, von autoritären Covid-Charakteren herumgeschubst zu werden, nur um einen weiteren seltsamen Online-Streit handelt, sollte noch einmal nachdenken. Es geht um weit mehr als das. Hier werden die Fronten zwischen Freiheit und Macht abgesteckt, die das Internetzeitalter bestimmen werden.
Zu den Taktgebern gehört unter anderem die Komplett-Agentur A-MAZE-ING music aus Stuttgart. Das Medienunternehmen agiert seit fünf Jahren als Schnittstelle zwischen großen Labels und neuen talentierten Musikern. Mittlerweile bietet es vor allem kritischen Musikern eine neue Heimat. „Die Idee war, Künstlern eine Möglichkeit zu geben, ihre Meinung zu äußern, ohne gleich berufliche Nachteile zu befürchten“, sagt Geschäftsführer Matthias Niemyt. Der studierte Musikfachwirt spricht einen heiklen Punkt an. Im Laufe der Corona-Krise hat sich gezeigt, dass Künstler, die die Maßnahmenpolitik und den Regierungskurs kritisieren, nicht nur medial an den Pranger gestellt werden, sondern auch befürchten müssen, ihre Verleger oder Auftraggeber zu verlieren
Jetzt ist es offiziell: Kanzleramtschef Helge Braun will Vorsitzender der CDU werden. Für Friedrich Merz, den Liebling der Basis, ist das ein Geschenk. Sein Kontrahent gehört zum alten Establishment und ist mitverantwortlich für dessen Fehlschläge
Er habe gespürt, dass viele CDU-Mitglieder mehr eingebunden werden wollen: Generalsekretär Ziemiak hat in den tagesthemen erklärt, dass darüber nun die Kreischefs beraten müssten. Er selbst sei aber kein Fan von Mitgliederbefragungen.
This is HUGE news as we can now support candidates to run to fight the duopoly as People’s Party candidates in the Sunshine State. Florida is a state that moves the country politically with more than 14 Million voters, a quarter of those are already registered as unaffiliated and surveys show that millions more are seeking out a better party. This is a significant and exciting development in the building of a major new party across the country.
It’s time to switch to ProtonMail, and to private text messaging services such as Signal. It’s time to abandon YouTube for video platforms such as Rumble.
We can depart of our own accord, in a dignified manner. Or we can wait to be cancelled by these malignant corporations.
Nina Turner gives a passionate election night speech following her loss in the special Congressional primary in Ohio’s 11th District.
The special election in Ohio featuring candidates Nina Turner and Shontel Brown has become a reportedly „acrimonious and bitter“ battle between the progressive and establishment wings of the Democratic party, as these factions go all out to support their preferred candidate. Journalists Eugene Robinson and Jeremy W. Peters join The ReidOut with their analysis.
South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, the third-ranking Democrat in the House, told CNN recently that Biden needed all the allies he could get in the House, a clear shot at Turner’s past negative comments about the 46th President.
Third Way, a centrist Democratic group, is spending $500,000 on a series of ads driving that same message.

My name is Lisa Ring and I’m a two-time former candidate for Congress endorsed by Justice Democrats and Our Revolution. Today I’m thrilled to announce that I’m joining the People’s Party as our new development manager.
Like so many of you, I’m fed up with the two-party system and I’m here to do something about it. I believe in the power of the people to transform this country. That’s what led me to activism in my 20s, inspired me to organize the Coast of Georgia for the past seven years, and drove me to run for Congress in GA-01 against a multi-millionaire Republican incumbent. We knocked on more than 50,000 doors and won my primary in 2018. I want to bring what I’ve learned to the People’s Party.
While I used my social media platforms to denounce the false accusations voiced by Uygur and Kasparian against Maté, none of this would merit an article or stand-alone commentary if not for the fact that the two weapons they chose — false accusations that someone is a paid Russian agent and exploited sexual harassment accusations — have become extremely commonplace in Democratic Party politics, liberal circles and U.S. politics more broadly. It is long past time — way past time — that these tactics be rejected and scorned by everyone regardless of ideology or personality preferences.
The group includes the former Cabinet minister Esther McVey and Sir Graham Brady, chairman of the influential 1922 Committee of Tory backbenchers, according to the Telegraph

The Sun joined forces with the NHS and the Royal Voluntary Service to urge readers to volunteer as stewards at the pop-up vaccination centres across the UK. It launched on New Year’s Day.
According to the latest figures, 7,744 have signed up to help, with most of those crediting The Sun.
Catherine Johnstone CBE, chief exec of the Royal Voluntary Service, said: “The response from Sun readers has been incredible.
It is hard to underestimate how close this country came to throwing away the 2016 referendum result. As deadline after deadline was missed, those who lost the referendum received more and more concessions. From European Court of Justice oversight to commitments to remain chained to the EU’s failed economic model – a virtual colony trapped within the Brussels regulatory orbit. On this side of the Channel, Brexiteers were confronted daily by the scheming of a thoroughly rotten Parliament abetted by a partisan speaker and activist legal establishment.
It is from this context that we must view today.
While the Biden wing of the Democratic party bets on centrism, progressives keep scoring wins. We take a look at a party marching in two directions toward November.
Joe Biden, first elected to the Senate in 1972, is in many ways a throwback to a bygone era. He has described himself as a transitional figure who can help build the next generation of Democrats. Biden may be the party’s presumptive presidential nominee, but Clay’s defeat underscores the deeper sea change underway in the party’s activist ranks and foreshadows some of the potential governing challenges facing the former vice president should he win in November.
At Saturday evening’s protest, one person was put in charge of a logistical situation room that handled arrests as well as the photographers, “so we can tell our story rather than what the police and the media are saying,” as one person described it.
Speaking before the demonstration, he said “the situation room will help connect the many groups, but in the end, everyone will do what they want.” He also expressed confidence that there was no need for leadership of the protests, and in fact, opposed such leadership.

Throughout the 2020 campaign, Mr. Sanders has sounded like an echo of his younger self, threatening reprisals against the elected officials in his way.

It is a method of governing untested in the modern presidency.
BEIRUT: Melhem Khalaf, a law professor at Saint Joseph university, has become the new head of the Beirut Bar Association after beating out the political ruling class‘ candidate.

„If they can falsely portray me as a traitor then they can do it to anyone,“ Gabbard continued. „And in fact, that’s exactly the message that they want to get across to you. That if you stand up against Hillary and the party power brokers, if you stand up to the rich and powerful elite and the war machine they will destroy you and discredit your message.“

The U.S. needs to get money out of politics, and you can help! Cenk Uygur, Brett Erlich, and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.
It is telling that when the protests were organised, they bypassed France’s organised left entirely, eschewing not just the political parties, but the trade unions, too. The reaction of some on the left suggests they were right to.
The inspiring and hardworking activists and grassroots organizers of Our Revolution are at the heart of the progressive movement in this country, working with leaders to address a rigged political system and growing economic inequality. Now, together, we’re bringing the political revolution to New York, and I’m proud to join them in the fight to create a more *democratic* Democratic Party!
