AMLO’s Inauguration and the Future of Mexico

_Laura Carlsen_ / NACLA Report (New York)

Andrés Manuel López Obrador was inaugurated December 1, in a
ceremony unlike any other seen in Mexico. What’s next for the new
president?

At least six authorities elected in the July 1 general elections were
killed before taking office. Four of them belonged to Morena, one to
the Democratic Revolution Party (PRD) and one to the Ecologist Green
Party of Mexico (PVEM).

Serbia: Thousands Protest President

_Daniel McLaughlin_ / The Irish Times (Dublin)

President Aleksandar Vucic accused of undermining democracy and rule
of law.

__________
Seasons Greetings from France’s Yellow Vests: “We Are Not Tired”

_Richard Greeman_ / ZNet (Woods Hole MA)

The Yellow Vest rebellion, now in its seventh week, is not “petering
out,” despite the near-unanimous pronouncement of the mainstream
media.

__________
Cuba's New Constitution Takes Shape

_Roberto Livi_ / Il Manifesto Global (Rome)

An explicit reference to Communism has been added—not present in the
initial text: “The human being reaches their full dignity only in
Socialism and Communism.“

 

__________
South Korea: ‘Migrant Workers Are Not Consumables, We Are Humans!’

_Jo He-rim_ / The Korea Herald (Seoul)

Marking International Migrants Day, labor unions and human rights
groups took to the streets to demand the Korean government revise the
labor policy to a “Work Permit System” to protect the labor rights
of foreign workers.

 

__________
New Wave of Strikes / Protests in Iran Need Solidarity

_Frieda Afary_ / Alliance of Middle Eastern Socialists

Ongoing protests and strikes in Iran have gained a new intensity. The
oil-producing and industrial province of Khuzestan in southern Iran
continues to be the most active site of labor, environmental and human
rights struggles.

  

__________
The Battle Continues Against Neoliberalism and the Global Right

_Anish R and Muhammed Shabeer_ / Peoples Dispatch (New Delhi)

The year witnessed struggles across the world, most often led by trade
unions, against neoliberalism and the related rise of the right-wing.
