"Budapest (Hungary) (AFP) - Tens of thousands of Hungarians thronged Budapest on Saturday in anger at strongman Prime Minister Viktor Orban's crushing re-election victory.

The crowd, around 100,000 strong according to organisers and AFP reporters, marched through the city centre in sunshine to parliament for a rally under the motto "We are the majority".

"We want to live in a state of law, where checks and balances are present.. We want to live in a real democracy," said protest organiser Viktor Gyetvai, 20, a student.

"If the demands are not met then we cannot live in this country, this is our last chance to do something for this country," he told AFP."

Japan Protesters Call for ‘Liar’ Abe to Resign Over Scandal

April 14, 2018    Andy Sharp

"Prime minister has denied involvement in controversies
Tens of thousands of people joined a demonstration outside Japan’s parliament Saturday, in a sign of growing public anger over cronyism scandals engulfing Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Organizers say about 50,000 people attended this weekend’s rally in Tokyo -- the biggest in nearly three years. Protesters, many young, held up signs calling Abe a “liar” and seeking his resignation.

The prime minister has been forced in parliament to deny his involvement in two controversies over land deals to close associates. An alleged cover-up over the activity of Japanese troops during the Iraq war is also casting a cloud over his government. A spokesman for Abe’s office didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment.

The scandals have pushed Abe’s approval ratings toward all-time lows, raising questions about his ability to win the ruling Liberal Democratic Party’s leadership election in September. Victory would put him on track to become Japan’s longest-serving prime minister."

@unity  I'd be interested to hear what you have to say.  I recall some kerfluffle about Abe wanting to have a bigger military, but not anything else, and thought the people were behind him on that score. Was I wrong?  Notice one thing in both these articles, the word "young" describing the protesters.

Putin warns of 'chaos' in international order if Syria gets attacked again

April 15, 2018

Vladimir Putin, in a phone call to his Iranian counterpart, warned that the world will see 'chaos' if Syria is attacked again.

"Russian President Vladimir Putin warned on Sunday that further Western attacks on Syria would bring chaos to world affairs, as Washington prepared to increase pressure on Russia with new economic sanctions.

In a telephone conversation with his Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani, Putin and Rouhani agreed that the Western strikes had damaged the chances of achieving a political resolution in the seven-year Syria conflict, according to a Kremlin statement.

"Vladimir Putin, in particular, stressed that if such actions committed in violation of the U.N. Charter continue, then it will inevitably lead to chaos in international relations," the Kremlin statement said.

The United States, France and Britain have said the missile strikes were limited to Syria's chemical weapons capabilities."

It seems to me that the chemical attacks, both last year and this year have no basis, in fact, and are totally unproven.  Let's remember also that our attacks have mainly been against ISIS, and Hezbollah, which means we are helping Assad, not working against him.

I'm gonna say it again----"All the world's a stage."
