Extra! Argentina Protests Suspicious Death Of Prosecutor

[rebelmouse-image 27088556 alt="""" original_size="750x1260" expand=1]

La Nación( Argentina) January 20 2015

Protests denouncing Argentine President Cristina Kirchner erupted all over the country Monday after prosecutor Alberto Nisman was found dead Sunday morning. Authorities are calling the death an apparent suicide, but protestors believe he may have been murdered for accusing the president of concealing Iranian culpability for the 1994 bombing that killed 85 and injured 300 at a Jewish community center.

Nisman's death came just hours before he was scheduled to give damning testimony at a congressional hearing. Days before his death, Nisman spoke to daily newspaper Clarin, saying, "I could end up dead because of this."

The thousands of protesters carried signs that said "Yo soy Nisman," borrowing from the "Je suis Charlie" and "Je suis Juif" marches that followed recent terror attacks in France. Other placards included, "Asking for justice is defending democracy," and "Enough with the lies."

The investigation into Nisman's death is ongoing, with a coroner due to make a final ruling in the days to come.

TURIN — Guess who's not coming to dinner. It seems like a scene from the American Deep South during the decades of segregation. But this happened in Italy, in this summer of 2023.

Two Italians, in their sixties, got up from the restaurant table and left (without saying goodbye, as the owner points out), when they declared that they didn't want to eat in a restaurant where the chef was what they called: an 'n-word.'

Racists, poor things. And ignorant, in the sense of not knowing basic facts. They don't realize that we are all made of mixtures, come from different racial and ethnic backgrounds. And that food, of course, are blends of different ingredients and recipes.

The restaurant is called Ginger People&Food, and these visitors from out of town probably didn't understand that either.
