The former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis staked his political career on getting a deal with the European Union – and lost. Now, as Theresa May enters the Brexit endgame, he looks back at the negotiating tactics used against Greece, and what the prime minister could learn. Plus: political correspondent Lauren Gambino reacts to the US midterm results

As the Brexit negotiations near crunch point, Theresa May is still battling to keep her party on side as she edges closer to a deal with Brussels. But is it possible to take on the EU in negotiations and win? One man who staked his political career on trying just that was the former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis.

He tells Anushka Asthana about his gruelling sessions with negotiators in Brussels over a bailout deal during the Greek financial crisis. He remembers the airless rooms, the terrible coffee, the anxiety and suspicions that the real deal was being agreed behind his back.

Имя Гитлера на магазине модной одежды в Мапуто | Фото использовано с разрешения автора

[Все ссылки ведут на сайты на португальском языке, если не указано иное.]

После шквала гневных реакций со стороны пользователей Facebook между 21 и 22 октября 2018 года магазин одежды в столице Мозамбика Мапуто, использовавший в оформлении нацистскую иконографию, избавился как от своего названия, так и от логотипа.

Магазин «Hitler» [прим. редактора: англоязычное написание фамилии Адольфа Гитлера], торговая деятельность которого, судя по всему, началась в первых числах октября, расположен в одном из крупнейших торговых центров страны — Maputo Shopping Center, в деловом районе центра мозамбикской столицы, рядом с приёмной премьер-министра и другими государственными зданиями.

20 октября пользовательница Facebook Фернанда Лобато разместила фото витрины магазина с изображением нацистской свастики:

Loja com o nome HITLER e com a soástica estampada no vidro da loja. Maputo Shopping. Como permitem este ultraje?

Магазин с названием HITLER и свастикой, отпечатанной на витрине. Maputo Shopping. Как можно было допустить подобный позор?

В ответ на данную публикацию последовала массовая реакция и множество комментариев. Сара Лопес, в профиле которой указано, что она проживает в Мапуто, написала:

Eu nem entrava nessa [censurado] de loja! Mas quem é o imbecil que abre uma loja dessas com uma conotação tão racista e de um homem que defende a supremacia da raça ariana quando nem ele mesmo o era?

Я даже не стала заходить в этот [удалено цензурой] магазин! Но кто этот дегенерат, что открывает магазин с расистской коннотацией и именем человека, который отстаивал превосходство арийской расы, если не сам того же поля ягода?

Рэпер, общественный деятель и мозамбикский юрист Ивет Марлен заявила, что этот магазин нанес оскорбление человечеству и что мозамбикское государство в лице государственной прокуратуры должно принять меры:

Um Estado com uma Constituição como a nossa não deveria nunca permitir isto! O que o fascismo fez com os negros? Quais eram os ideais do Hitler para Africa? Acima de tudo, o que Hitler fez a raça humana? As respostas a estas perguntas deveriam ser fundamento bastante para repudiar essa ideia comercial… Na verdade, essa loja é um insulto a nossa liberdade, moçambicanidade e nossa história por representar discriminação e genocídio a todas as raças em benefício e supremacia da raça ariana… A PGR [Procuradoria Geral da República] tem espaço para actuar aqui…não podemos aderir a Declaração Universal de Direitos Humanos por via da constituição e permitir isto de glorificar o maior genocida do mundo…

Государство с такой Конституцией, как наша, не должно допускать подобных вещей ни при каких обстоятельствах! Как обошелся фашизм с чернокожими? Какие идеалы преследовал Гитлер в отношении Африки? В конце концов, что сделал Гитлер с человечеством? Ответы на эти вопросы должны послужить достаточным основанием для отказа от подобной коммерческой идеи… В сущности, этот магазин — оскорбление для нашей свободы, мозамбикского народа и нашей истории, ведь он представляет собой дискриминацию и геноцид всех рас во благо и превосходство арийской расы… Для PGR [генерального прокурора] здесь достаточно простора для действий… мы не можем оставаться верными Всеобщей декларации прав человека, отраженной в нашей конституции, и при этом позволить восхваление величайшего геноцидиста в мире…

Возможно, благодаря последовавшим жалобам пользователей на страницу магазина в Facebook, она, по всей видимости, была заблокирована платформой.

Похоже, этот пост оказал существенное влияние также и на реальный мир. Два дня спустя после размещения оригинальной публикации владельцы магазина убрали его название и символику с витрин. Фернанда Лобато поделилась новостями по этому поводу:

Amigos, estou sem palavras (….) O nome da loja com o nome Hitler foi apagado. O símbolo da suástica foi apagado. Viva o Estado de Direito Democrático. Viva os Direitos Humanos. Parabéns a todos nós que nos indignamos com esta situação. Fico feliz por o meu país não admitir que símbolos que dignifiquem atrocidades efectuadas à Humanidade se perpectuem aqui. E viva as Redes Sociais, que usadas para o bem, conseguem chamar a atenção contra atos contra os Direitos Humanos.

Друзья, у меня нет слов (…) Название магазина «Hitler» убрали. Свастика также убрана. Да здравствуют Права Человека! Поздравляю всех нас, кого эта ситуация привела в ярость. Я счастлива, что моя страна не допускает увековечивания символов, возвеличивающих зверскую жестокость в отношении Человечества. Слава Социальным Сетям, которые при добронаправленном использовании могут привлечь внимание к действиям, посягающим на Права Человека.

Социолог Эдгар Кубалива призвал бойкотировать магазин невзирая на удаление названия и символики, чтобы таким образом выразить непоколебимое непризнание:

O nome e os símbolos foram apagados. Celebremos. Contudo, podemos continuar a mandar o recado para os donos: näo esquecemos…. O Nazismo saiu dos vidros mas não saiu da mente, do coração, da alma dos proprietários. E pessoas, não alimentem os discursos de desconhecimento de história por parte destes neonazistas. Esses fascistas conhecem muito bem a história, sabem o que fazem. Esse é o lado que escolheram. Agora cabe a nós sermos ou não aliados deles. Boicote.

Название и символика были удалены. Давайте отпразднуем это. Однако мы можем продолжать демонстрировать владельцам магазина наше отношение: мы не забываем…. Нацизм был удален со стекла витрины, но не покинул умов, сердец и душ владельцев магазина. И не стоит, люди, подпитывать рассуждения о невежестве всех этих нео-нацистов. Эти фашисты отлично знают историю, они знают, что делают. Это та сторона, которую они выбрали. И теперь выбор за нами — быть для них союзниками или нет. Бойкот.

A Syrian artist draws sketches of colorless, broken and undefined features in an attempt to cope with the horror and trauma of his time in prison, where he was subject to constant torture and abuse by Syrian government forces.

Najah al-Bukai draws images from the time when he was arrested, detained and tortured by the Syrian regime in one of the notorious prisons in the Syrian capital, Damascus.

“Drawing my experience relieves me from my nightmares, and this continues to develop as a healing method,” al-Bukai told VOA.

He said his goal is not to document the events but rather to use drawing as a mechanism to heal from the physiological wounds and trauma he sustained during his time in the prison.

Drawing on a paper, al-Bukai relies on his memory to recall images from inside the prison. He then re-creates them in an effort to come to terms with the experience.

“People might not look at a graphic photograph taken of a horrific situation, but when it is an artwork people react differently. They do look at it and feel compassionate about the subject of the artwork,” al-Bukai added.

Al-Bukai, who lives in Paris, was a college professor from Homs in central Syria. He studied art in France and returned to Syria in 2006 to teach art and mass media at Damascus University. He owned his own art studio in the Syrian capital.

When the uprising started in 2011, al-Bukai took part in peaceful protests in a number of Syrian towns to demand political reforms and more rights for Syrians.

In 2012, when the Syrian government intensified its crackdown on opposition protesters and groups, many Syrians were displaced and al-Bukai started volunteer work to deliver aid packages to the besieged areas in the Damascus countryside.

That is when he was arrested for the first time.

“I was taken to security branch 227 and accused of weakening the national sentiment. I was imprisoned for one month in which I lost 13 kilos [about 28 pounds] because the prisoners are barely fed,” al-Bukai said.

“After my release I went into hiding at an acquaintance’s house in Damascus,” he said.

Branch 227, also known as Al Mantiqa security department, is in Damascus. It is part of a number of intelligence branches in the area where Syrian regime opponents are interrogated using torture and other brutal techniques.

Second arrest

In 2014, after keeping a low profile and mostly living in hiding, al-Bukai was frustrated and decided to go to Lebanon. Before making it to Lebanon, he was arrested for a second time on the Syrian-Lebanese border and was taken to the same security branch where he was kept two years earlier.

He said he was kept there for 70 days before they transferred him to Damascus’ central prison in Adra town, northeast of Damascus.

Al-Bukai says he was tortured physically and psychologically. He was electrocuted, brutally beaten, starved and hanged for hours from his hands.

He says he also witnessed the torture of other detainees, with some tortured by what he termed “the German chair” technique, in which prison guards broke the backs of detainees, paralyzing them.

Dead bodies

Among all the horrific memories, al-Bukai says one image stands out. It is the memory of detainees carrying the bodies of those who died under torture. The image is reflected in many of his drawings as well.

“Everyday evening around 8 p.m., a truck full of dead bodies arrived to branch 227 from other detention centers. The security officers would order a number of detainees to go out and empty the truck. We used to go out in our underwear with a green wool military blanket to carry the dead,” al-Bukai said.

Al-Bukai added that the bodies were kept in the basement of their branch for the night and in the morning those who died under torture from their branch would be put with them and taken away by a truck.

“A security guard told us that the dead [bodies] were taken to Najha public cemetery [on the southern outskirts of the Syrian capital],” al-Bukai said.

“We heard the screams of those who were tortured, the cracking of their bones, and we heard their moaning as they were slowly dying, and we hoped that they die sooner so they finally could have some peace,” al-Bukai said.

Talking through drawing

Drawing memories became a visceral habit for al-Bukai. He believes he will not be able to stop the drawings because they are part of his life and experience now.

“Once you live through this experience, it will stay with you. I cannot stop the images of what I saw from appearing in my mind, and drawing these images over and over again became an obsession. Drawing helps me in healing and coping with the pain,” al-Bukai said.

Al-Bukai added that the detainees who went through similar horrors tend to talk about their experiences repeatedly, but after a while, those who listen to them get bored of the repeated stories.

“For the tortured detainees, silence is a black box in memory. I talk through my drawings,” al-Bukai said.

​140,000 cases of people detained

Tens of thousands of Syrians have been reportedly killed by the regime forces inside different prisons in the country.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a U.K.-based rights group monitoring developments in Syria since 2011, has documented more than 140,000 cases of people being detained by the Syrian regime.

The group has also documented the deaths of more than 60,000 civilians in detention centers during the seven-year war in Syria, including women and children. They died because of torture, starvation and lack of medicine.

VOA could not independently verify the authenticity of these figures.

#TheyVoted.

 

Voters 30 and younger stepped up to the polls in Tuesday’s midterm elections at an “extraordinary” rate compared with the midterm turnout in 2014, helping Democrats win back a majority in the House of Representatives, analysts say. 

“Young people’s dramatic rise in voter turnout, combined with an overwhelming preference for Democratic candidates, made youth a powerful voting bloc in the 2018 midterms,” reported the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) at Tufts University in suburban Boston.  

“I feel very content. I’m hoping the House of Representatives now being run by the Democrats will be a step in the right direction of a more balanced legislature,” said Michelle Sullivan, 25, of Wilmington, N.C. “I understand politics isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, but it would be nice to see more bipartisanship and cooperation amongst the two parties.” 

Roughly 31 percent of young people 18 to 29 cast ballots Tuesday, compared with four years earlier when 21 percent of eligible young voters went to the polls, CIRCLE wrote on its website. 

“We estimate that this is by far the highest level of participation among youth in the past quarter century — the last seven midterm elections during which we’ve been using this same calculation method,” it said. 

According to early analysis of exit poll data, 67 percent of young voters cast ballots for Democratic House candidates, compared with 32 percent who chose Republican candidates.

“That extraordinary 35 percentage-point gap in support for Democrats over Republicans is about three times higher than it was in the 2014 midterms, when 54 percent of under-30 voters chose a Democrat, and 43 percent a Republican,” CIRCLE reported. “It is, by far, the largest difference in vote choice among young people in the past quarter century.” 

“We, the Democrats, FINALLY took a step in the right direction,” Paige Baldwin, 28, of Kelso, Wash., said in response to questions from VOA. “However, I’m saddened that we didn’t do more. Not that I’m not grateful! We have so much diversity in the House now that has never been there before! LGBTQ, Muslim, WOMEN and men who are qualified! Based on the results, our work is not done! Hate is still in power! I also … feel exhausted!!!”

African-American and Latino youths — 90 percent and 80 percent, respectively — showed Democrats the most political love. White youths voted 57 percent for Democrats and 42 percent for Republicans.  

“With the first Native women, first Latina representatives in certain states, first Muslim women, and first African-American women representatives in certain states, I think we are getting closer to a more accurate representation of America in the halls of power,” said Erin Capina, 23, of Silver Spring, Md. “Change comes. It might happen excruciatingly slowly, but it happens.” 

“On Election Day, when the Democratic Party took back control of the House of Representatives, young people (ages 18-29) offered their candidates an overwhelming level of support today,” CIRCLE stated. 

Tharin Nolte, 24, of Summerville, S.C., who did not identify as a Democrat, agreed.

“They expected more Democrats to show up to this election, and they turned out to vote for their candidates. … My political party didn’t win, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t have hope for us,” she said. 

Younger Americans say they were driven by divisive government and a disregard for issues that will impact them more greatly than their elders, such as climate change and the heavy burden of student debt. 

Student activists from Parkland, Fla., are credited with increasing voter registration and youth participation. After 17 people were gunned down at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February, students there banded together to combat gun violence with a grassroots campaign that organized the March for Our Lives protests in Washington and several U.S. cities nationwide that drew hundreds of thousands. 

“I am optimistic knowing that there is some check and balance restored back to Congress,” said Emily Paxson, 24, of Washington. “However, I was hoping for a few more victories in the South, specifically Florida, Georgia and Texas.” 

In Texas, Senate Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke, 46, who waged a youth-focused campaign, lost to incumbent Republican Ted Cruz, 49. More than 70 percent of Texas youth voted for O’Rourke, compared with 29 percent for Cruz. 

“I’m unpleasantly surprised O’Rourke lost,” said Brittany Vulich, 25, of Milwaukee, Wis. “What a missed opportunity for Texans. … I’m convinced more than ever that [Cruz’s] allegiance is to the straight, white, upper-middle-class, male agenda and not the all-encompassing other populations he claims to champion.” 

“The level of youth support for O’Rourke is remarkable in a state where young people supported Hillary Clinton with 55 percent of their vote just two years ago,” CIRCLE wrote. “In 2014, Texas youth were evenly divided 49 percent to 49 percent between the gubernatorial candidates of both parties.” 

“To see the amount of young people that were first-time voters come out is really a testament to the direction this country is moving,” said Brett Capina, 25, of Aldie, Va. “I’m hopeful that the momentum sticks, and people are just as motivated for the 2020 election and all future midterms.”

Kremlin: Any new US sanctions over British spy case would be ‘illegal’

WKYC.com
The Kremlin said Wednesday that Russia will consider as “illegal” the new U.S. sanctions being imposed over the poisoning of a Russian spy in Britain. The comments by Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov follows Tuesday’s statement by the State Department that the United States will impose a second round of sanctions over Russia’s alleged use of a nerve agent on former Russian intelligence officer Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia in March.
