“The democratic memory also serves to repair the Roma people” by Sofía Pérez Mendoza

“The Government is going to approve a Memory Commission, foreseen in the law of 2022, which will give rise to measures of "truth, justice, and reparation" for this community, whose history is one of the most unknown. With the help of historians, we recover large and small episodes to fill in the gaps.”

"The modus operandi of men like Hawkins was to sail to Guinea, acquire a cargo of enslaved people, by force and/or barter, and ship them to the Spanish Caribbean and Mexico.91 Here, Hawkins would claim inclement weather had forced him to the area (a tactic used by many illicit traders), offer platitudes to local officials and sometimes promise to help clear out foreign pirates from the area.92 In return, he asked the Spanish to purchase his enslaved people. If that failed, he became aggressive, after which the local elites, often under-manned and in relatively lightly defended settlements, would agree to purchase his human cargo."

They "resigned" the Irish prime minister after he told about Why the Irish stand by Palestinians.

We really living in strange world where any humanization or show of empathy towards palestinians results in terrible consequences for those who dare challenging the global Israeli dominance of global politics.

/ Spanish, Irish leaders call on Ursula von der Leyen to review EU-Israel trade accord over human rights concerns [February 14]

Duo calls for “urgent review” of trade agreement between Israel and the in light of military operation.

[…] In a letter to European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen on Wednesday, the two leaders called for “an urgent review of whether Israel is complying with its obligations, including under the EU/Israel Association Agreement, which makes respect for human rights and democratic principles an essential element of the relationship.”

[…] If Israel is found to be in violation, the agreement needs to be reconsidered, Sánchez and Varadkar argue.
