“Dark Day for Everyone Who Believes in Justice”: U.K. Tories Defeat La bour in Landslide Election

Democracy Now!

Dec 13, 2019

The British Conservative Party has won a decisive majority in Thursday’s general election, winning seats in Labour Party strongholds and paving the way for Britain’s exit from the European Union by January 31. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is projected to have 364 seats in the House of Commons compared to Labour’s 203 seats. That would give the Conservatives about a 75-seat majority, the largest since Margaret Thatcher’s landslide in the 1987 election. Johnson’s message throughout the campaign was focused on “getting Brexit done,” reflecting public exhaustion with the issue that has paralyzed British politics ever since the 2016 referendum. His win comes despite his long record of racist and anti-Muslim statements, as well as accusations of sexual harassment. Following the election, Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn announced he will resign as party leader, though he will continue to sit as an MP. The Labour membership grew dramatically during Corbyn’s tenure, with the party adopting radical policies focused on ending austerity, reinvesting in the National Health Service and promoting social justice. We get response from George Monbiot, a columnist for The Guardian and author of “Out of the Wreckage: A New Politics for an Age of Crisis,” and Priya Gopal, university lecturer in the Faculty of English at the University of Cambridge and author of the new book “Insurgent Empire: Anticolonial Resistance and British Dissent.”

A new report reveals how long-term disasters, including sea level rise and desertification, and short-term disasters, such as storms and fires, are especially threatening to people living in the Global South and island nations. We speak with the co-author of a new study that finds the climate crisis is already leading to a massive increase in the number of refugees being displaced around the world. Hossein Ayazi is a policy analyst with the Global Justice Program at the Othering & Belonging Institute at the University of California, Berkeley. We’re also joined at the U.N. Climate Summit in Madrid by Saleemul Huq, climate scientist and the director of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development in Bangladesh.

COP25: Developing Countries Charge Ahead with Bold Climate Plans as Rich Countries Drag Their Feet


Democracy Now!

Dec 13, 2019

As this year’s United Nations climate summit wraps up in Madrid, Spain, many activists, scientists, indigenous and grassroots climate leaders say that rich countries most responsible for the climate emergency have spent the talks dialing back ambition and blocking progress. This comes as deadly droughts, flooding, cyclones and wildfires rage around the world. This week, more than 70 developing countries have announced they will accelerate their climate plans, and 72 countries have signed onto goals to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050. But major emitters Australia, China, India, Brazil and Saudi Arabia have made no such promises, while the U.S. is slated to pull out of the Paris Agreement entirely by next year. For more on the negotiations at COP25, we speak with Saleemul Huq, climate scientist and the director of the International Centre for Climate Change and Development in Bangladesh. He is advising the bloc of Least Developed Countries in the climate talks.

Trump Attacks 16-Year-Old Swedish Climate Activist Greta Thunberg

Dec 13, 2019

President Trump has attacked 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, who has just been named Time magazine Person of the Year. She’s the youngest person to ever receive the honor. On Thursday, Trump attacked the teenager on Twitter, tweeting, “Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!” In response to President Trump’s attack, Greta changed her Twitter bio to mock the president of the United States, writing, “A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.” Trump’s Twitter spat with the teenager comes after President Trump did not win Time magazine Person of the Year last year, instead being named runner-up.

House Judiciary Committee to Vote on 2 Articles of Impeachment Today

Dec 13, 2019

On Capitol Hill, the chair of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerrold Nadler, unexpectedly called off a vote on the two articles of impeachment against President Trump after a 14-hour debate in the committee Thursday.

Rep. Jerrold Nadler: “It has been a long two days of consideration of these articles, and it is now very late at night. I want the members on both sides of the aisle to think about what has happened over these last two days and to search their consciences before we cast our final votes.”

Congressmember Jerry Nadler has now rescheduled the vote for today at 10 a.m. Eastern time. The first article of impeachment, “abuse of power,” centers on how President Trump withheld military aid from Ukraine to pressure the Ukrainian president to investigate Trump’s political rival Joe Biden and his son Hunter. Democratic lawmakers say Trump then tried to cover up his actions, leading to the second article of impeachment: obstruction of Congress. Democracy Now! will be live-streaming the impeachment hearing today at our website, democracynow.org.
