Από το Εμβολιαστικό Φιάσκο και το Ξέφρενο Χρέος στην Πανεπιστημιακή Αστυνομία – Ομιλία στη Βουλή (video)

Η Κυβέρνηση εν μέσω πανδημίας είχε τέσσερις υποχρεώσεις.

What is at stake is the independence of Ecuador, not of its central bank. This is why the oligarchy is attacking Andrés Arauz- video

It is with considerable amusement that I follow the international oligarchy’s anxiety to prevent Andrés Arauz from winning the presidential election.

A Festive Message on behalf of DiEM25 for 2021: “Because things are the way they are, things will not remain the way they are.” B. Brecht
