International Round Up
- Nigeria & the tweet heard around the world
- G7 Meeting - West still allowing capitalism to kill us
- EU President, Von Der Leyen making bullshit excuses to prevent the patent waiver.
- Prime Minister of France, Macron went rogue and is now fully supporting a patent waiver for COVID vaccines.
- Apparently G7 leaders (Canada, USA, Japan, Germany, France, UK, Italy) leaders think, 1 billion vaccines and vaccinating the world by 2022 will end the pandemic. We’re not optimistic about anyplan that doesn’t include a patent waiver.
- No more tax havens? G7 agrees on global minimum tax.
- Denmark passes legislation enabling transfer of asylum seekers to offshore processing centers yet again winning the price for most blatantly racist government, masquerading as moderates.
