Norwegian-Swedish Imperialism in Ethiopia

Since 2009, through the operating company Etno Mining, they have been looking at a concession area that is 36 square kilometers larger than Drammen Municipality. An estimated 4 billion kroner worth of gold is expected to be recovered within the first period, and although Torsen claims that the estimate is speculative, he adds that it is a conservative estimate.

Norwegian state capital grows with the exploitation and destruction of nature and peoples in one of the world’s poorest countries.


Norway in Afghanistan: Sophisticated Intelligence and Thousands of Murders

NRK has published a report that reveals new electronic surveillance developed and used by Norwegian and US intelligence. In Afghanistan, the surveillance is used in operations that in one year alone took more than 6000 lives. Norwegian authorities have refused to take responsibility.

China: Thirty Years Since Tiananmen Square

Today, June 4, marks 30 years since Chinese authorities cracked down on political unrest in 1989. In the Spring of 1989, China was characterized by protests and demonstrations.
