From SPAIN- Alison Hughes reports on Ahed Tamini, the Palestinian youth released from Israeli prison after 8 months. She had slapped an Israeli soldier after learning that her 15 year old cousin was murdered nearby by another Israeli soldier, also trespassing on Palestinian land. 300 Palestinian minors are being held in Israeli prisons, which has driven a Minnesota congresswoman to present a bill, HR4391, to prohibit US funds which finance Israeli military detention of Palestinian children. US backed Kurdish forces in Syria completed the first stage of negotiations with President Assad which included turning over key cities to the government. Meetings have been held in Damascus to form a roadmap for a decentralized and democratic Syria. Other meetings are ongoing with a summit planned in Turkey with Russia, France, and Germany.

From CUBA- Bolivian President Morales praised Cubans for their solidarity with other peoples around the world. Former Ecuadoran President Correa warned that current President Lenin Moreno has made a deal with the US to turn over Julian Assange when he leaves the embassy in London. Activists are on hunger strikes in Brazil to protest President Lula da Silva’s imprisonment and rising poverty in the country. Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega continues to condemn US government interference in his country.

From RUSSIA- On his program called Going Underground, Afshin Ratannsi interviewed John Perkins, author of "Confessions Of An Economic Hit Man." They discussed the future of BRICS nations (Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa) who are trying to create a post-imperial world free of US driven neo-liberalism. Perkins says that BRICS is providing an alternative to the IMF and World Bank, forcing them to soften the deals that they offer third world nations. They talk about current trade wars, the Chinese Silk Road agenda, and increasing militarism.

From JAPAN- Again, extreme heat and abnormal weather patterns are gripping Japan, while record monsoon rains are causing flooding across Myanmar. The Japanese Defense Ministry has finished withdrawing missiles that had been deployed around the country. Iran has seen its currency plunge to a record low in the face of impending sanctions from the US, and Iranian officials have expressed skepticism at Trump's suggestion that he would like to talk to President Rouhani without conditions.
