„Wir wollen auf die Straße gehen und Freiheit für die jungen Leute einfordern, die für bessere Löhne, gegen Straflosigkeit, für eine angemessene Rente und für die Bewegung der sozialen Revolte seit Oktober gekämpft haben und immer noch inhaftiert sind“, sagte Alicia Lira, Vorsitzende der Afep.

Pfizer and Moderna vaccine fact sheets will soon feature a label from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warning of a heart inflammation risk in adolescents and young adults after a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) safety panel determined there is a „likely association“ between the vaccines and cases of myocarditis and pericarditis in younger vaccine recipients, according to an analysis presented by the panel Wednesday.
The CDC says the findings do not change the basic recommendation that all people 12 and older should be vaccinated …

His aunt wrote on Twitter preliminary autopsy results found the teen’s heart was enlarged when he died and there was fluid around the organ.
On June 23, a Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) advisory committee said there was a likely association between the risk of heart problems in young people and the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.
She had purple spots on her body when she was found, and the family and the police requested an autopsy from the National Forensic Service to find the cause of death.
A youth-led democracy movement that kicked off in Thailand last year drew tens of thousands of people to rallies demanding the resignation of Prayut, the former army chief who came to power in a 2014 coup.
The movement broke long-held taboos by demanding reforms to Thailand’s monarchy, and scores of protesters have been hit with multiple royal defamation charges, which carry 15-year jail terms.
Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said: „I think double vaccination, full vaccination, is going to be a feature for ever more and most countries, probably all countries, will require full vaccination in order for you to enter.”
He also warned youngsters they will be unable to travel if they do not get jabbed.
In a new attempt to criminalize social protest, the Colombian government issued arrest warrants against the frontline youths accusing them of having received financing from the guerrilla.
Colombia’s Defense Minister Diego Molano on Sunday announced the arrest of 134 citizens who had been protesting against President Ivan Duque on the „front line.“
The CDC did not respond to questions about the exact number of reports. However, NBC News identified at least 55 suspected cases nationwide.
That number includes 14 cases under investigation by the Department of Defense among members of the military, but it may be an underestimate. And some, but not all, state departments of health are tracking such cases.

By 15 February, the NHS had vaccinated the top four most at risk groups – groups that have accounted for around 88% of COVID-19 deaths and about 55% of hospitalisations. The UK’s four Chief Medical Officers say that you get “substantial protection within 2-3 weeks of vaccination”, which takes us to 8 March. So upon what evidence is your department relying in order to recommend that masks in classrooms are today necessary – rather than “nonsensical” – now that the four most vulnerable groups have “substantial protection”?
The national curfew came into effect at 9pm on January 23. The first night saw the police issue over 3.600 95-euro fines for violations of the curfew. 25 people were arrested. However, the police did note that, of the people who were stopped and checked during curfew hours, 80 percent carried the necessary government forms.
On Monday, the Dutch Security Council – made up of the 25 mayors who chair security regions – will meet in Utrecht in order to discuss how the curfew will be enforced over the coming weeks.
The prime minister expressed his support for police, municipal mayors and journalists who were targeted while reporting on the weekend’s violence. He said police had responded ‘adequately’ to the situation and dismissed the idea of calling in the army to enforce the curfew. We’re not taking these measures for fun,’ Rutte said. ‘We’re doing it because we’re fighting the virus and right now it’s the virus that’s taking away our freedom, and it’s because of the virus that we’re taking these rotten measures.’
Police in Noord-Holland province said they had arrested five people who had called online for riots in Purmerend, Hoorn and Alkmaar. In Amsterdam, there were at least nine arrests after trouble erupted in the east of the city. In Gouda, the mayor also evoked his emergency powers after several cars were set on fire. There were also arrests in Geelen, in Limburg, including several minors, police said.
Reportedly, the youngsters took to the streets, played loud music, and drank alcohol. At least a hundred young people had gathered in the center around 9 p.m. From there, they marched through the streets chanting “dictatorship.” They were addressed by someone with a megaphone who said, “today is the first day that we let you know that we are done.” The protestors also lit fireworks with which they attacked the police.
The police struggled to bring the situation on the control and had to call in the riot control unit. What followed was a game of ‘cat and mouse’, in which the police with long batons ran through the streets and groups of protestors repeatedly managed to escape via side streets.
The first curfew in the Netherlands since the occupation during World War II began smoothly in most part of the country but riot police were drafted in to restore order on the staunchly Protestant former island of Urk after youths went on the rampage.
Daisy Affum and Errol Johnson spoke about how Londoners should come together to tackle the hunger crisis as they posed for portraits by artist Henry Hudson which can be bought by readers to support Food for London Now.
Ms Affum, who works as a catering manager at a school but helps feed vulnerable Londoners in her spare time, said: “This issue of people going hungry was here long before Covid-19 but the virus has made it worse.”
“I cannot stay at home for a long time. I have five sisters, in addition to my parents. Pressure at home is terrible. In normal days, it was unbearable, so what about now!” Gili told Asharq Al-Awsat in a phone call. “Therefore, I ask the authorities to take into account the conditions of life in these apartments. They should think about us, who are unemployed and managing our informal trading in the markets to earn our living,” he added.
Sherine’s heartbreak reflects that of parents who cared for the 34,000 students sleeping in New York’s homeless shelters last year — enough children to fill a small city.
Sandy stands on her tiptoes and squints across the East River as the N train pulls onto the Manhattan Bridge. She watches the skyline until the train dips underground.
As a young Israeli studying abroad, I recently came home for a visit eager to discuss the upcoming elections with family and friends – but found an atmosphere of utter apathy. So I decided to go find people who were actually getting involved, and that’s how I ended up meeting Elisheva and her fellow protestors.
His victory hangs on the fates of racist Otzma and leftist Labor – and on right-wingers coming out in droves while leftists go to the beach
“The art community in Japan has always been the outliers of society, the crazies,” said Robin Rastenberger, the organizer of the art collaboration event Tokyo Lovehotel. These multi-artistic musical events bring together an eclectic audience from diverse backgrounds. Art is brought to the forefront in changing Japanese youth.
Progressive parties such as the Constitutional Democratic Party of Japan, the Japan Communist Party, and Reiwa Shinsengumi can present a truly credible alternative for Japanese millennials, if they work together in a way that is effective and captures the public imagination.
