From RUSSIA- On his program called Going Underground, Afshin Rattansi interviewed Sea Shepherd founder Captain Paul Watson, and David R Boyd the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and the environment. Watson discusses how the oceans are the planet’s life support, why we must issue a moratorium of 50 years on heavy industrial fishing and waste dumping into our oceans to fight climate change, how corporations and capitalism are making profit out of the deaths of entire species of fish and ecosystems, and how the corporate fishing industry has impoverished poor fishermen leading them to piracy. Boyd discusses the class dynamic of the climate change crisis, how poor countries are bearing the brunt of the effects of climate change, and myths about China being the world’s worst polluter.

From JAPAN- Talks in Austria to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear program appear to be showing signs of progress. The Chinese Foreign Minister criticized the latest Japan/US statement describing the country as a real threat to regional peace and stability- he also stressed the importance of not meddling in Chinas domestic affairs. The EU plans to step up its influence in the Indo Pacific region to counter the growing presence of China- the EU says that instability directly affects their interests.

From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on EU foreign Ministers meeting with their Ukrainian counterpart to discuss rising tensions with Russia, and threats from US Secretary of State Blinken. A Spanish journalist, Rafael Poch, published an essay on the US increasing the dangers of war in the Ukrainian Russian region, and with China in Taiwan and the South China Sea.
