Bolivian President Luis Arce on Country Recovering from US-Backed Coup & Latin American Unity

[embed]https://youtube.com/watch?v=LaOqE7PdRcA[/embed] LA PAZ, BOLIVIA — Bolivian President Luis “Lucho” Arce did not pull his punches when asked by MintPress News last week what he thought about U.S. interventions in his region: “The message that we give to Mr. Biden is that he should continue being president of the United States and let all the presidents of Latin America be presidents of our countries.” Arce made those comments during a sit-down interview conducted with MintPress at the Bolivian Embassy in London. “The only people who can generate policies to solve our problems are the Latin American countries themselves,” he said, adding: “It is clear to us that South America, Latin America has to stop being the backyard of the United States.” Much to the disappointment of the U.S. government, Arce was elected president of Bolivia last year in a landslide, helping return the Movement to Socialism Party (MAS) back to power after 11 months in opposition following a U.S.-backed military coup in November 2019. Since the election of Evo Morales in 2006, Bolivia has been a global leader in fighting for an alternative vision of the world, and has drawn the attention of political movements from across the planet.

What Is France Hiding in the Sahel?

BAMAKO, MALI — On the 8th of October, Choguel Maïga, the prime minister of Mali, boldly informed the world that its former colonial power, France, was sponsoring terrorists in the country’s northern region. Standing before dozens of cameras and microphones, he provided details on how the French army had established an enclave in the northern town of Tidal and handed it over to well-known terrorist groups. The revelation was shocking not simply for the serious nature of the accusation but because in past times West African leaders have rarely sparred so openly with the French government. A chain of events simmering in the background for weeks triggered the latest spat. On October 2nd, Britain’s BBC published an article with the headline “Mali’s plan for Russia mercenaries to replace French troops unsettles Sahel.” The embattled media outlet further claimed: “There is deep international concern over Mali’s discussions with the controversial Russian private military company, the Wagner Group.” Scene after a terrorist attack in Gao, Mali, Nov. 13, 2018. | Wikimedia Commons By now we all understand that whenever Western corporate media outlets utter the

Cruel Britannia: Britain’s Real Role in the World, with Mark Curtis

[embed]https://youtube.com/watch?v=-So9YotcGf0[/embed] Despite a number of embarrassing political events over the past number of years, Great Britain still likes to regard itself as a forward-thinking, world-leading country and a force for good. Surveys show that the United Kingdom retains a great deal of positive sentiment around the world. And despite the savagery of the era, Britons themselves remember their empire extremely fondly, far more positively than those in countries subjugated by the crown. In 2014, a poll by YouGov found that 59% of the public considered the country’s empire something to be proud of, with only 19% thinking it was a shameful episode in British history. Perhaps more startling is the fact that more than three times as many Britons believed that their colonies were better off than worse off under their control. These numbers have begun to change, with the rise of new histories and new political movements, such as Black Lives Matter, that have challenged the jingoistic consensus. One historian whose work has done a great deal to shatter the myths of empire is Mark Curtis, who joins Alan MacLeod on the Mintcast today. Mark Curtis is a historian and journalist, the co-founder of Declassified UK, an
