Inside the Kremlin’s velvet grip, Russia’s civil society struggles to survive

You also see signs of this happening in America as well. New laws (environmental, etc.) are being created and used as a tactic to come down on whoever is wanted out of the way. This is why a lot of people don’t see an incoming dictatorship. As seen in this article, the government in a new form of dictatorship will wear you out through legal means and with an endless supply of taxpayer money to back it.

 

Workers at Memorial, Russia’s leading human rights monitor, live under constant, unyielding pressure from the government, which is trying to stymie dissent.

All seems perfectly normal on the busy downtown corner where Memorial, Russia’s largest grassroots human rights monitor, maintains its sprawling Moscow headquarters. On most days the building is a hub of activity: people come and go, and even police officers stroll by without so much as a sideways glance.

Yet enter the building and spend a while with the people who tend its vast archives, run seminars, and manage its campaigns, and the feeling of a grinding siege becomes palpable. Among the workers here there is a mounting mood of despair. Some say their nerves are near to snapping, and few believe Memorial can survive much longer. Continue reading

Americans Renouncing Citizenship Up 221%, All Aboard The FATCA Express

America is a great land and lures immigrants worldwide, yet record numbers of U.S. citizens and permanent residents are giving up their citizenship or residency. For all the immigrant arrivals the trickle the other direction is increasing. The number is still small, with the “published” expatriates for the quarter 630 for the last quarter of 2013.

That brings the total number to 2,999 for all of 2013. The previous record high for a year was 1,781 set in 2011. It’s a 221% increase over the 932 who left in 2012. You can call it a shaming or a public record, but the Treasury Department is required to publish a quarterly list of Americans who renounced their U.S. Citizenship or terminated their long-term U.S. residency. The public outing puts Americans on notice who relinquished their rights. Continue reading

The DGSE “systematically collects electromagnetic signals emitted by computers in France, as well as the data feed between France and abroad: the entirety of our communications are being spied upon,” said the report. Continue reading
