  1. there are many more where that came from all over the world and the commercial media isn’t reporting on the vast majority of them. They’ve been protesting sweat shops in Cambodia, China and Bangladesh and there have been plenty of protests in Central and South America as well as trials exposing death squads with CIA connections. There are even protests here in the USA that aren’t being reported in the traditional media except perhaps at the local level without full context or addressing the issues.

    One sign of success or partial success was made in Brazil where the government agreed to meet with indigenous people protesting a damn.

    This is what leads me to believe there is a possibility of either real reform or further crackdown coming, which is what I wrote more about in the latest blog on the subject. .
