From GERMANY- The Greens political party gained a great deal in the EU Parliament elections, with much credit going to the work of Greta Thunberg. Luxembourg is going to make all public transport free next year to reduce pollution caused by individual cars.

From CUBA- China delivered another 69 tons of medical and health supplies to Venezuela. US Senator Lindsey Graham says the US military should invade Venezuela like they did in Grenada in 1983. Argentina faced another nationwide strike in protest of the recession brought on by the Macri administration. The Palestine Liberation Organization has called on the international community to boycott a forthcoming US led conference in Bahrain, purportedly to encourage investment in the West Bank and Gaza Strip. The US walked out of the UN conference on Disarmament as Venezuela assumed the body's rotating presidency.

From JAPAN- Japanese President Abe and Trump made speeches on a Japanese naval destroyer that will be converted into an aircraft carrier so that it can carry some of the 100 new F-35 Stealth fighter jets Japan has agreed to buy. The people and leaders of Hiroshima are protesting the recent reporting of a subcritical US nuclear weapon test conducted in February in Nevada. Japan has been experiencing record high temperatures in May.

From RUSSIA- Afshin Rattansi interviewed lawyer and former Harvard professor Alan Dershowitz on the possible British extradition of Julian Assange. They discuss the precedents that could be set by charging a publisher with espionage, why the democratic party is not concerned with the first amendment question, and whether McCarthyism is alive in the US today.

"It's always the small people who change things. It's never the politicians or the big guys. I mean, who pulled down the Berlin wall? It was all the people in the streets. The specialists didn't have a clue the day before."
--Luc Besson
