Cuba’s generosity after Chernobyl
Millions have watched Chernobyl, the TV series about the 1986 nuclear meltdown, and your coverage has been extensive (Report, 13 June). But an important related story has not had a mention at this time of renewed interest. Following the catastrophe, the tiny island of Cuba stepped forward and cared for over 20,000 young cancer victims from 1989 to 2011, – medical care, schooling, clothing, food, accommodation, playgrounds – all free of charge. A specialised medical facility was opened to the east of Havana, and Cuban doctors travelled to the affected region to treat patients in their homeland.No other country in the world launched such a massive programme. The Cubans responded – as “an ethical and moral”, not a political question, as it was put at the time, and the programme continued despite changing governments in the Ukraine.

Only Jeremy Corbyn Can Stop Farage
The unending impasse over Brexit has thrown Britain’s Conservative Party as well as Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour Party into turmoil. Both have suffered declines in the polls, and the far right led by Nigel Farage’s new Brexit Party is taking full advantage, leading it to victory in the European elections and to the top of opinion polls.Corbyn’s program of redistribution, reversing privatization, boosting public education, and improving public services remains wildly popular. And for a while, promoting this class-based platform against the backdrop of Theresa May’s disastrous handling of Brexit negotiations was a boon for Labour. But the European elections, and the impending possibility of a no-deal Brexit, has put the European Union at the center of British politics. This throws up challenges for a Labour Party whose base is still divided between Leave and Remain. Here, Jacobin contributor Ashley Smith speaks to Salvage editor Richard Seymour about this volatile situation, how the far right stands to benefit from the breakdown of the Tories, and what the Left can do about it.

Remember the Vincennes? The US’s Long History of Provoking Iran
Remember the Vincennes?That’s the name of the U.S. Navy warship that shot down an Iranian airliner with missiles in 1988, killing all 290 people aboard that airplane.That shootdown, where 60 children perished, was an accident, according to the U.S. Navy’s official report. However, many, including military personnel, considered that report a whitewash.That U.S. military attack on a civilian airliner occurred during a time when the administration of then U.S. President Ronald Reagan was all but openly supporting Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, who had launched a war of aggression against Iran – the nation now in the crosshairs of the President Donald Trump Administration.The Vincennes incident is instructive as the Trump Administration is seemingly searching for a ripe moment to launch a war against Iran, an action long sought by right-wing forces in the United States along with U.S. Middle East allies Israel and Saudi Arabia.

This Week in Fascism #14: The Alt-Right Will Never Be Anti-Capitalist
Welcome, fellow anti-fascists!

socialists and communists need to bring up Cuba's massive health initiatives more often. It just objectively shows that Cuba is the closest thing the world stage has to a "good guy".

I'm more angry that Merkel won again than happy over the fact that AFD lost.

Someone has read Nick Land

Was an anti-government libertarian reactionary who was probably becoming a fascist anymore. You can tell he was disillusioned with his life and the status quo so he thought he could resolve it with nihilistic violence. Truly a memelord who will only be remembered for getting pwned by state. The quintessential ANCAP terrorist. Wonder if the right is gonna claim false flag on this one?
