Dear Global Research Readers,
The Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) summit is under way in Tehran. This extraordinary gathering of world leaders is being ignored or distorted because of the venue. The mainstream media is not reporting about the NAM summit or on the reality about the events in Syria. The military build-up in the Asia-Pacific around China is also being causally brushed aside as if it has minimal importance.
The destruction of the environment, the growing deficit of social justice, civil liberties, economic depression, the gnawing of worker’s rights, political frustration in North America, media disinformation, and so many other topics are all regularly focused on by Global Research. We are committed to giving readers critical coverage on these issues and much more.
In the face of mainstream media disinformation, Global Research has remained independent and continues to act as a vital information portal for the public, and we are grateful to all those involved in this process.
Our reader feedback has been an invaluable source of encouragement, motivation, and growth. But we also need reader support and help. Without the support of our readers, the Global Research websites would not exist in their present forms and we would not be able to offer our valued readers the expanded coverage and services that we presently have. We have been able to develop our activities thanks to the contribution of Global Research readers.
Global Research does not seek financial support from private and public foundations. This is why we value every single donation and contribution made by our readers.
We encourage you to re-post Global Research articles, cite them in your work, politely talk about them to friends, using them for group discussions, and embed GRTV videos in your webpages.
CAIRO (Reuters) – The Syrian delegation at a Non-Aligned Movement summit walked out during a speech on Thursday by Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi, who described the Syrian government as “oppressive”, Al Jazeera television reported.
The Arabic satellite channel did not give further details in its brief headline and it was not immediately clear if the delegation returned after Mursi’s speech finished.
