We posted the 2 articles below to give decent summaries of where protests are taking place and their severity – not that we agree with either sides, the right and left being two sides of the same coin. Yesterday, we didn’t mean either that the ousted Evo Morales is a saint, financed socialism is as bas as financing the milirary complex , Socialism lasts while it can and eventually leads to fascism
Though it looks as if the BoA warning (that we ought to prepare for social upheavals) is becoming truer by the day, but lets not fool ourselves, the usual suspects have even socio-engineered all these protests with help of the political grassroots movements which they have financed all along since ever – And by doing so they can remain in control of the outcome that upheavals bring about in their wake while people are kept in herds.
But this time something very different will have to be tried then hitting the 1% in their Achilles’ heel. Their assets. We cannot play the money game anymore . Humans are not governable and this Truth could really fire back at the instigators but the latter expect the masses to never discover the real agenda behind their political shenanigans. So they have to feel safe – for now.
So what we must do is stay focused, and quit consuming as if there are no tomorrows. We must degrow the economy to shrink it , then take down our several planetary Goliaths. And it is much simpler than we think. Protest not needed. Just endorse new consuming habits to change the world and this will make the transition way more peaceful. Violence will just get what we do not need anyway.

From Iran to Hong Kong, the World Is Becoming Ungovernable (nov 21 2019)
The dominant political trend of the past year has been popular uprisings that are jolting the ruling institutions. But anarchy isn’t the worst that could happen — More important, what the political situation in most of the countries where protest has erupted has in common is the helplessness of the central government. Even if the leaders threaten to react with an “iron hand,” it turns out that their hands are tied. In many countries, the central government seems to be weaker than it has been for generations. Try as they might, these states are not succeeding in enforcing their authority. The political instability generated by the protests comes on top of the bankruptcy of the political system in a number of democracies. Israel is not the only country that has been hurled lately from one election to another. — In other countries, the political impasse is so far evident only at the local level. A case in point is the German state of Thuringia, where the election last month produced a parliament in which the largest parties are the radical left Die Linke and the radical right AfD. Because both parties are boycotted by the ruling party in Germany, the Christian Democratic Union (which came in third), no coalition seems possible. The state was declared “ungovernable” by the CDU, among others. This is a typical crisis, characteristic of a period in which the political center is crumbling and the political arena is polarized between radical right and radical left.

Welcome to the Global Rebellion Against Neoliberalism As distinct as the protests seem, the uprisings rocking Bolivia, Lebanon, and scores of other countries all share a common theme.
But they are, and it’s getting louder. Last week you could hear the banging in Colombia—in Bogotá, Cali, Cartagena, Barranquilla, Medellín, a curfew declared, the army in the streets—and the week before that in Iran, a steady beat that quickly spread to more than 100 cities. At least 100 protesters have been killed so far. It’s hard to know if there were more, or exactly what is going on: The government shut off the Internet on the protests’ second day. But even when there’s a steady connection, it’s hard to put it all together: Protests have been roiling through Algeria, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Egypt, France, Germany, Guinea, Haiti, Honduras, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Lebanon, the Netherlands, Spain, Sudan, the UK, and Zimbabwe—I’m sure I’m leaving someplace out—and that’s only since September. Some have been the fleeting, routine sort that snarls up traffic for a day. Others look more like revolutions, big enough to topple governments, shut down entire nations.
