Citizens turn up the volume on troubled TTIP negotiations
March 10-14th saw the latest round of the highly controversial EU-US free trade negotiations take place in Brussels. But while the industry’s 50 leading CEO’s, known collectively as the European Roundtable of Industrialists, proclaimed it their responsibility to ensure the deal was passed ‘with as little noise as possible’, citizens from both sides of the Atlantic had other, rather noisy (and sometimes milky) ideas for the Belgian capital.

Color Revolutions: The Strategy of the Venezuelan Opposition and How it Works
The phony issue of government repression raised by the opposition and the private media is an essential part of the script. Without the issue there is really no justification for the opposition’s sole demand for regime change embodied in the slogan “salida” (exit). Certainly there are pressing problems in Venezuela including shortages of basic (and some non-basic) commodities, inflation and delinquency. But these problems do not justify the overthrow of the government. If these were the issues, people in general would say “wait until the next elections and vote the Chavistas out of office.”
Obviously, the opposition’s strategy is either create conditions that may set off a coup (which is highly unlikely given the military’s well demonstrated loyalty) or (much more likely) bring about a wearing out process in which in the next electoral cycle the average voter supports opposition candidates who distance themselves from the violence allegedly coming from both sides.
