Friday, March 26th, 2021

Montevideo At NightDuring a video conference substituting for a summit commemorating 30 years of MERCOSUR, President Luis Lacalle Pou clashed with Argentine despot Alberto Fernandez over the Argentine desire to close the bloc to any new trade agreements ever.

Thursday, May 28th, 2020

Brasil's "Federal Police" struck the homes of numerous ardent supporters of Brasil's democratically elected President Jair Bolsonaro as part of an alleged campaign to suppress "fake news" in the country.
