Grizzly Times. It makes me happy there’s a blog devoted to news and opinion about grizzly bears.

Reuters. Such as they are.
Resilience (Drumlin Woodchuckles).
United Nations (Ignacio). From 2018, still germane.
Pacific Standard (VietnamVet). Fun rant.
Politico. “The provocation that seems to have tipped the French over the edge was when Luigi Di Maio, leader of the 5Star Movement and deputy prime minister, with leaders of the Yellow Jackets movement in Paris.” Oddly, or not, we don’t seem to be hearing a lot about the gilets jaunes themselves. Presidents, prime ministers, and ambassadors, yes. Protesters, no.
The Local. From last week, still germane.
Review of International Studies
South China Morning Post
The Diplomat. “The ruling is probably the first time in history that the highest judicial institution of a country has declared colonial rule to be illegal.”
New Cold War
The National Interest
Antiwar.com. Review of Stephen Cohen’s new book.

Black Agenda Report
Common Dreams. From Healthcare-NOW and the Labor Campaign for Single Payer Healthcare: “Understandably, the transition to a new lead sponsor and an extensive rewrite process has created some nervousness and confusion in sections of the single-payer advocacy community. This has allowed a range of rumors and misrepresentations to run rampant among activist groups, including some rumors that have started spilling into published articles.” A good summary, well worth a read.
Aeon. Disaster relief.
Los Angeles Times
Truthout. That’s not a bug….
