Bangladesh garment workers seek unpaid wages as orders stop

Hundreds of Bangladeshi workers who produce garments for global brands blocked a highway at a protest demanding their unpaid wages during a nationwide lockdown that has forced most factories to suspend operations.

"The government should take care of us, I did not get my wages for the last two months," said a 21-year-old woman who refused to give her name for fear of retribution from factory owners.

A leader of the factory owners' association blamed global brands for abruptly cancelling orders from many factories.

Protests were reported in several parts of Dhaka, including in Kamlapur and Mirpur, while hundreds of workers blocked a highway outside the capital, disrupting vehicles carrying produce.

'All for her political gain' - Jacinda Ardern sued over lockdown

The Prime Minister is being sued over the lockdown, with two applicants making multiple claims at the High Court in Auckland today – including it being "all for her political gain".

They also asked for a writ of habeas corpus, which seeks to rule an imprisonment unlawful and release the applicants.

The two men, who are known to each other, argued the alert level 4 lockdown has left them unlawfully detained and is not worth the economic cost compared with the low number of Covid-19 related deaths.

The pair have interim name suppression after citing death threats and safety risks.

The first applicant, who is currently serving a home detention sentence, told Justice Mary Peters "the whole thing's a joke" and it has become a "panic-demic, not a pandemic" – noting his sentence allows him to leave the house between 8am and 5pm each day.

Millions of people have lost their jobs, and their lifelong savings. In developing countries, poverty and despair prevail.

While the lockdown is presented to public opinion as the sole means to resolving a global public health crisis, its devastating economic and social impacts are casually ignored.

The entire World has been precipitated into a spiral of mass unemployment, bankruptcy and extreme poverty.

EPIC : How To Think About The Fed Now

The Fed is, in effect, a lawless economic government unto itself. It serves as a bizarro-world ad hoc credit facility to the US financial sector, completely open ended, with no credit checks, no credit limits, no collateral requirements, no interest payments, and in some cases no repayment at all. It is the lender of first resort, a kind of reverse pawnshop that pays top dollar for rapidly declining assets. The Fed is now the Infinite Bank. It is run by televangelists, not bankers, and operates on faith.

You Know Who Else Liked Fighting Wars Against Invisible Enemies?

Have you heard? There’s a new enemy! No, not brown people in a faraway land which most people cannot locate on Google Maps – although they are probably our enemy too, whoever they are. And no, we’re not waging a new war against an abstract concept. We already bit off a bit more than we could chew when we took on Terror. Probably we’ll need another twenty years to solve that rather expensive, bloody riddle.

This is something really new, a nemesis unlike anything you’ve seen before – because you literally cannot see it. It’s everywhere and it will overwhelm your half-empty hospitals and kill you and everyone you love unless you do exactly what your government says. And that means doing everything that you’re told. Nothing is too servile in the fight against this ubiquitous shadow.

But we are paraphrasing. Allow us to cite the primary sources:
