Another controversy that affects the Trump family: activists who were investigating a supplier of Ivanka Trump shoes were arrested in China
Three activists from the US NGO China Labor Watch were investigating the working conditions of a shoe factory that supplies a small part of Ivanka Trump’s collections for 10 years. Hua Haifeng was placed in detention, accused of clandestinely recording conversations in a factory. Two other activists are reportedly also in detention, the Washington Post said.
According to NGO China Labor Watch, this is the first time in 17 years that militants have been arrested in this type of investigation, and this is undoubtedly linked to the brand Ivanka Trump. In May the NGO published a report on the work of employees over 12 hours a day, six days a week for a salary equivalent to $ 365 in one of these factories. For Amnesty International, as President Trump accused China of unfair trade practices, he should learn a lesson and use his new friendly relations with Xi Jinping to free the militants, the newspaper concludes.
It is already two months since the Venezuelan opposition goes down in the street against the regime of Nicolas Maduro, the OAS must meet today
The foreign ministers of member countries of the Organization of American States will discuss two draft declarations on the Venezuelan crisis which has already caused 59 deaths, El Espectador said. Each project has one point in common: neither of them supports the initiative of Nicolas Maduro to convene a Constituent Assembly. The OAS is hoping for an outcome that is unlikely to succeed: forcing a dialogue between the government and the opposition to break the spiral of violence and finding a way out of the economic and political crisis, reports the Miami Herald.
Mexican Chancellor Luis Videgaray said Mexico could offer its mediation to resolve the Venezuelan conflict, Milenio said.
But what can the OAS decide about Venezuela, El Espectador asks? Venezuela has withdrawn from the organization a month ago, but the full exit process will take two years, says the Colombian newspaper. In any case, its members will ask Venezuela for an electoral calendar, the end of violence and repression and arbitrary detentions, the release of political detainees and the acceptance of humanitarian aid. If 33 countries attend this OAS meeting, it will take 22 votes to validate one of the resolutions.
The opposition has launched a call to protest this Wednesday, as the number of deaths and injuries continues to increase
This time, the opposition will march towards the Foreign Ministry from 10 am local time, to coincide with the OAS meeting in Washington, El Nacional said. The government calls for an “anti-imperialist” march calling for respect for the sovereignty of the country.
In any case, for two months, there has been ” one death per day of demonstration ” and 1,119 wounded according to figures provided by the Ministry of Interior, El Tiempo insists. Neither the coup against Hugo Chavez in 2002 nor the demonstrations against Maduro in 2014 caused so many deaths and injuries, because of the repression by the State, despairs El Tiempo.
And yesterday another demonstration took place in New York, under the windows of Goldman Sachs
“Goldman Sachs, ashamed of you, ” shouted about 40 protesters at the foot of the headquarters of the American investment bank, which confirmed to have bought last week $ 2.8 billion of bonds of PDVSA, the Venezuelan oil company, Allowing Venezuela to ease the burden of its debt and breathe, the Miami Herald tells us . For the opposition, Goldman Sachs makes the game of the Venezuelan regime. But the purchase was made on the cheap, 31 cents for 1 dollar, says the New York Times, the third of its value, which angered Nicolas Maduro.
