Ramona Wadi is an independent researcher, freelance journalist, book reviewer and blogger. Her writing covers a range of themes in relation to Palestine, Chile and Latin America.
Chilean governments and their protection of social inequalities created the marginalisation of the Mapuche people from the rest of the population, Ramona Wadi writes.
Neoliberalism in Chile is a brutal ongoing experiment and Bachelet does know better than other diplomats at the UN that the protests must achieve their aim before any so-called dialogue with politicians, whether right-wing or centre-left.
What if Chile’s transition to democracy continues to prove it is merely a veneer for the dictatorship practices ushered in by Pinochet?
It is unlikely that the new bill will repudiate the onslaught of repercussions as a result of Moreno coercing Ecuador into IMF allegiance, Ramona Wadi writes.
Regret is not an acknowledgement of colonial violence, especially when it refuses to acknowledge the victims murdered by the British Empire.
While the UN promotes its humanitarian façade, NATO provides the militarisation of the UN’s purported human rights agenda.
In failing to take into consideration the relations between Cuba and Venezuela, the international community is heaping additional constraints on the Cuban people.
If governments in Chile continue to uphold the dictatorship pacts of silence, Chile’s memory will, with time, remain tethered to narrations which do not make it beyond diluted versions of history.
The international community is dominated by discourse that promotes foreign intervention according to the undemocratic agendas of the so-called democratic countries.
Australia’s involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan as a non-NATO member has been one of the most prominent and reportedly in relation to training missions, although it was also involved in capturing and detaining alleged terror suspects.
