No country in the world would have signed a convention that took away the soverign right to define who is in your territory; but, the left is going to give it a try. Is this the convention you had in mind? : After more than a year of discussions, the Global Compact For Safe, Orderly and Regular Mig...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Woowww, you finaly caught him red handed. Lock him up. oops, he is dead. I wish it was only a matter of corruption. A Chilean court on Tuesday convicted nine former soldiers for the 1973 murder of Chile's most famous folk singer, Victor Jara. The then 40-year-old Jara was arrested on September 12, ...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Britain still participates in NATO conflicts and sells weapons to any dictator who can pay. OK - had a quick look about UK selling weapons. The UK is the no 2 weapons exporter after the US. In case anybody is interested on the global arms trade, I just happened to hear the replay of an interview wi...

Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

Maersk will continue to operate in Chile in one form or another. So they are not going risk antagonizing the authorities by badmouthing the country, nor the unions by criticizing the workforce. Hence the rather bland official statement. From El Libero , referring to last years strike: Producto de e...

Re: chile's migration crisis

Maersk had doubts about its Chile container factory even prior to its launch
