Invasion Day and Indian Farmers Protest

The Establishment, Nationalists and the Plebeians - Gap and Inequality reaches critical levels.

And on the Continent of Europe ...

In the Netherlands the Generation Gap ... young people want their freedom, jobs and wealth ... let the old and vulnerable meet their fate ... a few years early than planned. This has been years in the making ... the Babyboomers have made in ... now it's "our" right to live.

Wasn't that precisely implied by the early "herd immunity" policy of populist leaders across the western world.

When Gandhi stood trial for sedition in 1922

Hindustan Times republishes a piece from the supplement titled `Statement at the great trial of 1922', which details the events of the year when the Father of the Nation was tried under section 124A of the Indian Penal Code -- the sedition charge -- for causing disaffection against the colonial government.

    In a comment on the arrest of the 21-year-old Ravi, Vij had on Monday urged the "extermination from the roots" wherever seeds of anti-nationalism are found. "Whoever harbours the seeds of anti-nationalism in their mind, has to be destroyed from the roots, be it #Disha_Ravi or anyone else," Vij had tweeted in Hindi.

Ravi possessed a toolkit of Greta Thunberg ... an International plot to overthrow the elected government ... 🤣

'Gag law' reform

Meanwhile, the sentencing of Hasél has triggered a wave of criticism against Spain's ruling socialist leader, Pedro Sánchez, who said previously in 2018 that the reform of the Public Security Law - commonly known as the "gag law" - was one of his main priorities.

The law, enacted in 2015 by the previous administration, bans the glorification of groups such as ETA, insults against the Crown and religion, but it also establishes fines for taking and sharing photographs of police officers.

Last week, the left-wing coalition government unexpectedly announced reform of the gag law, aiming to target only actions that "clearly create a risk to public order or encourage some kind of violent conduct".
