In diretta: #25aprile2020, il corteo web a 75 anni dalla Liberazione

la Repubblica

#ioresestolibera #iorestolibero, la manifestazione virtuale voluta da Carlin Petrini. E poi il fhashmob dell’Anpi, che invita tutti ad affacciarsi per cantare “Bella Ciao”. È da qui che muove la trasmissione condotta da Gad Lerner intitolata “E questo è il fiore”. Una sorta di corteo web sul sito di Repubblica con la partecipazione del direttore Maurizio Molinari e collegamenti in diretta (Roberto Saviano, Michela Murgia, Pif, gli storici Carlo Ginzburg e Giovanni De Luna, l’economista Tito Boeri), interviste a testimoni del ‘45 e partigiani (Carlo Smuraglia, Vinicio Silva, Laura Wronowska, Lidia Menapace, Germano Nicolini), letture della Resistenza con Giuseppe Cederna, Luigi Lo Cascio, Sonia Bergamasco, Fabrizio Gifuni, Lunetta Savino, Lino Guanciale. Con musica e ricordi (Alessandro Quarta, Orietta Berti, Diego Moreno, i Nomadi). E con gli interventi di Moni Ovadia, Zucchero e Ligabue.

Is There Something Wrong With Democracy? / La democrazia è in crisi?

The New York Times/Internazionale

For years, the number of democracies in the world had been on the rise, but recently the trend has stalled. Max Fisher and Amanda Taub, journalists for the New York Times, explore why some democratic countries have backslid, while others never made it.

“Quindici anni fa la democrazia ha smesso di diffondersi e potrebbe non ricominciare più”, spiegano Max Fisher e Amanda Taub, giornalist* del New York Times . “Molti dittatori hanno imparato a impedirne la nascita e, allo stesso tempo, alcuni leader eletti stanno sviluppando strategie per distruggere dall’interno il sistema democratico”.

Why new diseases keep appearing in China

Vox

As of early March 2020, a new coronavirus, called COVID-19, is in more than 70 countries and has killed more than 3,100 people, the vast majority in China. That’s where the virus emerged back in December 2019. This isn’t a new phenomenon for China; in 2003, the SARS virus also emerged there, and under similar circumstances, before spreading around the world and killing nearly 800.

Both SARS and COVID-19 are in the “coronavirus” family, and both appear to have emerged from animals in China’s notorious wildlife markets. Experts had long predicted that these markets, known to be potential sources of disease, would enable another outbreak. The markets, and the wildlife trade that supports them, are the underlying problem of these pandemics; until China solves that problem, more are likely to emerge.
