Finally, after many hits on the short 10 min. version, here’s the full complete video of “Viva Loisada”, by Marlis Momber, that depicts the “before gentrification occurrences” in Lower East Side in the Fall of October, 1978 with Chino Garcia & Bimbo Rivas.

These neighborhood murals began with a grassroot artists’ collective, CityArts where through visual arts, a cultural history of protest & resistances can occur. Birth of Nuyorican Poetry Club featuring poets and musicians as well as the squatter’s movement are depicted in this video.

Someone who came in later but with close connections to Cabinet Ministers – and at an eye watering price.

Biden wants to remain engaged with Russia, China

28 May 2021 — Indian Punchline

Chinese Vice Premier Liu He (L) and USTR Katherine Tai held their first call after the latter’s Senate confirmation, May 26, 2021

Anyone who tried to divine the Russia policy of the Biden presidency out of the corpus of statements by current and prospective officials in the new administration would know by now that the range of instincts and perspectives contained in those statements did not really reflect or anticipate what was to happen — the upcoming summit meeting between Presidents Joe Biden and Vladimir Putin in Geneva on June 16.
