    You might have heard of this about Scottish Rolls Royce workers blocking engines being exported for the Hawker Hunters in Chile. https://amp.theguardian.com/film/2018/nov/01/on-your-way-pinochet-factory-workers-fought-fascism-from-glasgow-chile-coup-nae-pasaran The film is called Nae Pasaran.

    Boris Johnson

    No dice, not unless his dodgy spiv mates with posh accents can siphon off a few quid. Public funds are now a cash machine to these frauds.

    The Latin America thread

    Long read from the NYT about Haiti (Caribbean strictly, not Latin America) tells the story of its slaves overthrowing the French, how the French extracted wealth from its former colony, and its subsequent invasion by the USA, along with the utterly corrupt governments that have blighted its people. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/20/world/haiti-history-colonized-france.html?unlocked_article_code=AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACEIPuonUktbfqYhkTVUZAybKWsIjolqGjPnTwfk8h2TiKzKEDD1Fy-MTApqN9wLDf6NlbNZ13yieQJUJFo4Tc8FI770VOV1xGU7vq4GYmZ8BLmJlotjoAj5n1NeQAO9htGLkPmT8Iuwlzfjj5U7ZOWO9X_GP1iIxNU0y98seAFKg0HEPx6_HE_ckmYUtmKd8We0pAGsIdyKIvPL3ChlhO93gbh3U7wc-X-AxSiiE1JfHqOpGKFMOfAqAGHBv4m8868deP8cVOcv8Kx0mfsn5idYBGyObGdbQKPznolAqEKVCIKM

    Inequality

    Good listen about UK poverty and housing interviewing 2 generations of activists, including the founder of Shelter, and the guy who is exposing housing associations and landlords online who are putting people in substandard accommodation. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0017chg

    The Latin America thread

    This is a more up to date article about Honduras’ reaction to the start up city. https://restofworld.org/2022/crypto-libertarian-prospera-lost-legal-battle-honduras/ But then that’s what the CIA’s for.

    The Latin America thread

    An excellent read about Charter Cities in Honduras, their beginnings in the minds of hard right libertarians, and local opposition. Linked with some of the people behind Brexit, and the grandsons of the creators of neoliberalism. As an aside top tech cunt Musk was in Brazil to meet Bolsonaro. Not great with elections later this year. https://restofworld.org/2021/honduran-islanders-push-back-libertarian-startup/

    Flying. Everything planes.

    There’s a project rebuilding a crashed Spitfire that was shot down and over Norway. Pilot was in the PRU ( Photographic Reconnaissance Unit) and was captured and later escaped in the Great Escape from Stalag Luft III. He was then shot by the Germans. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-59233572
