I've completely lost track of all the strikes/active labour disputes that are going on right now, there is a shit load, and that is a good sign.

can we try and compile them all? Name your country, then name all the strikes and any other type of mass unrest.

Railway Workers, Ambulance Workers, Border Force Workers, University Teachers, Teachers, Nurses, Care Workers, Binmen,

Probably more but those are the main ones

Is it true that this photo was produced based on >>1295767
after 1930? Most websites don't cite anything and others cite Wikipedia which itself cites nothing.
As far as I know, the one and only source is "the Commissar Vanishes" by David King, but that book cites absolutely nothing for either the photo or for the information (him getting shot in 1930/getting erased from the photo).
The book uses that 4-panel image of Stalin, Kirov, and two others at a table on its cover, which is really suspicious considering that image is extremely dishonest. only one person in that photo was actually purged and the other two images are completely unrelated: one was a photo included in one single history book that cropped the others out because they wanted to focus on Stalin and Kirov, and the other was just a random artist a decade before the purge who used the photo as a reference. Neither were pretending to "rewrite history". The one that only has Kirov and Stalin was literally produced while one of the cropped figures was still alive and in a high post. So already the book seems silly, let alone that it claims Malchenko was shot in 1930 with zero sources.

President Castillo Installs a 'Government of Exception' in Peru
This came just hours before Peruvian lawmakers were expected to debate a new impeachment motion against him, which could have immediately removed him from the country's presidency. His decision also includes the call for new parliamentary elections whose purpose would be to generate the conditions for the drafting of a new constitution for Peru. The call for elections will take place within a period of no more than nine months, according to Castillo.

Venezuela: Currency Reels to Spark Inflation Fears
The national currency has seen the exchange rate against the US dollar increase by nearly 35 percent since November 1, going from 8.57 BsD per USD to 11.86. The decrease severely hits working-class wages and pensions. The Venezuelan Central Bank (BCV) has rushed to inject a reported US $190 million into so-called exchange tables run by public and private banks over the last week in an attempt to stop the depreciation cycle. However, it has not yielded effects, with more monetary interventions expected in the coming days.

At least two protesters were killed Wednesday in southern Iraq after security forces opened fire on a crowd demonstrating against a harsh prison sentence handed down against a young Iraqi activist over a Twitter post, local officials said. Hundreds of protesters took to the streets in the city of Nasiriyah against a court ruling this week sentencing Hayder Hamid al-Zaidi, 20, to three years in prison over alleged criticism of state-sanctioned militias.

Rail workers warn of exodus after Congress forces through deal
Those who were holding out hope for a strong contract might look for a new job after the deal failed to provide paid sick leave or put an end to strict attendance policies and strenuous schedules that require workers to be on call constantly, rail workers say. “I don’t think you’ll just see half of the workforce disappear, but you’ll see a good percentage, and we can’t afford for anybody to leave because we’re so undermanned as it is,” said Hugh Sawyer, an Atlanta-based engineer at Norfolk Southern.

Timothy Snyder’s Bloodlands: Right-wing propaganda disguised as historical scholarship — Part Four
Perhaps the most disturbing component of the relativization of the crimes of fascism in Bloodlands is Timothy Snyder’s systematic distortions of the Nazi-led genocide of six million European Jews. For all the detailed descriptions of gassings and mass shootings in Bloodlands, Snyder offers the most systematic right-wing historical revision of the established understanding of the crimes of fascism in decades, outstripping anything that Ernst Nolte dared to do in the late 1980s.  Snyder persistently downplays the persecution of the Jewish population of Western and Southeastern Europe by the Nazis. The murder of Dutch, French, Greek and Yugoslav Jews, as well as the annihilation of Hungary’s Jewish community of half a million people, are mentioned in a few sentences, if at all. Other victims of the genocidal policies by the Nazis are all but ignored as well. The systematic mass murder of an estimated 200,000 mentally ill and handicapped people, first in Nazi Germany and then in occupied Europe, is skipped over by Snyder in a single paragraph. The genocide of between a quarter and half a million European Sinti and Roma is not mentioned at all.

France’s Most Degrading Talk Show Is Promoting Far-Right Politics
If you had to imagine what France’s most-watched TV talk show looks like, you might think of something resembling the high-brow discussions hosted on the nation’s public airwaves — a place where guests debate topics like the legacy of Chopin, the future of EU integration, or the shifting depictions of the American dream in the films of Paul Thomas Anderson. The reality is much grimmer. According to ratings, France’s most popular talk show is a two-hour sludge of infotainment where topics are selected according to their traction on social media and their capacity for provocation. Typically, these range from a potpourri of pop culture happenings and blood-curdling crimes to trends on TikTok, Twitter, and Instagram with just a smidge of political news: welcome to the world of Touche Pas à Mon Poste!

None at the moment. The implications at this point are that it is unfeasible to write code. It is at best a good "buddy" to ask questions to regarding programming stuff, but this shit can't write code for you. Software engineering is a delicate, precise, but also a social activity. Ask any software engineer, programming is the easy part, it's the other stuff that is hard.

Colombia president's move to label protesters 'peace managers' sparks controversy
Opponents of Colombia President Gustavo Petro on Monday insisted that people jailed for participating in anti-government protests in 2021 were in prison for breaking the law, not demonstrating, after Petro announced plans to name dozens of youths as peace managers, paving the way for their release. Petro, Colombia's first leftist president who took power in August, promised in his campaign earlier this year to release dozens of young people prosecuted and imprisoned for participating in demonstrations in 2021.

Argentina’s Cristina Fernández sentenced to six years in $1bn fraud case
Argentina’s vice-president and former president, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, has been sentenced to six years in prison and given a lifelong ban on holding public office after being found guilty in a $1bn fraud case related to public works. Fernández – who was president of Argentina for two terms between 2007 and 2015 – was found guilty on Tuesday, though she is unlikely to serve any prison time soon as she has immunity thanks to her government roles and is expected to launch a lengthy appeals process that could take years.

Timothy Snyder’s Bloodlands: Right-wing propaganda disguised as historical scholarship — Part Three
The real political purpose of Snyder’s false equations of Stalinism with communism, and of the Soviet Union with Nazi Germany, is revealed in his account of World War II. In Bloodlands, the Nazi war of annihilation and the crimes of Hitler’s Wehrmacht are systematically trivialized and relativized as a “reaction” to, or as part of, an “interaction” with violence from the Soviet side. The Nazis attacked the Soviet Union on June 22, 1941, launching the bloodiest war in human history. The estimated death toll among the Soviet population is 27 million, but may well have been higher. The war also marked a critical turning point in the development of the Nazis’ genocide of the European Jews. Within less than two years after the beginning of the Nazi-Soviet war, almost the entire Jewish population of Eastern Europe had been murdered. The falsifications and omissions with regard to the Nazi-Soviet war in Bloodlands are of the most fundamental character. It is impossible to enumerate them all. Let the reader be reminded that over half of the victims of the Nazi-Soviet war do not even figure in Bloodlands as part of the death toll of the Nazi regime. Some of the most important chapters in the history of this war are effectively ignored. This includes the battle of Stalingrad, which led to the first major defeat of a German army, in February 1943, and is widely seen as the beginning of the end of the Third Reich.
