Simon posted a topic in US News and Politics's US News and Politics DiscussionLast year, and for the first time, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), which publishes annual reports on the development of democracy, demoted the US from a full democracy to a flawed democracy. CNBC reported on this story: And apparently, Americans can't blame it all on Trump. The US has been on the brink of becoming a flawed democracy for several years, and it would have slipped below 8.0 no matter the election result in 2016. Instead, the EIU says dwindling trust in the US political system, the government and its elected representatives are the cause for the US becoming a flawed democracy.

Simon posted a topic in Europe's News and DiscussionsUh oh... Angela Merkel has just said in a speech that Germany or Europe can no longer rely on America under Donald Trump, or Britain following Brexit. Instead Merkel said that "we Europeans must take our destiny into our own hands" and "fight for our own future". The Independent reports: So, basically, France think Donald Trump is a dictator, and the Germans think he's unreliable, while the British think he can't be trusted with any kind of intel. But at least the Saudis think he's useful. Good job America!
Join the Peoples Climate Movement this April 29th in Washington, D.C. and across the country to stand up for our communities and climate. Everything we have struggled to move forward in the United States is in peril. Our loved ones feel under siege, and those in power in Washington are advancing a dark and dangerous vision of America that we know is untrue. To change everything, we need everyone. On the 100th Day of the Trump Administration, we will be in the streets of Washington D.C. to show the world and our leaders that we will resist attacks on our people, our communities and our planet. We will come together from across the United States to strengthen our movement. We will demonstrate our power and resistance at the gates of the White House. We will bring our solutions to the climate crisis and the problems that affect our communities to our leaders in Congress to demand action. We invite you to join the Peoples Climate Movement on Saturday, April 29th as we march to: Advance solutions to the climate crisis [that are] rooted in racial, social and economic justice and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers. Protect our right to clean air, water, land, healthy communities and a world at peace. Immediately stop attacks on immigrants, communities of color, indigenous and tribal people and lands and workers. Ensure public funds and investments create good paying jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize. Fund investments in our communities, people and environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all. Protect our basic rights to a free press, protest and free speech. March with us on April 29th as we come together to resist and march for our families, our communities and our planet.
