Morales, a former union leader of coca growers, is serving a third term as Bolivia's first indigenous president. His government's bill would cap the legal area for coca cultivation to 20,000 hectares (49,421 acres). The farmers want to be able to produce as much coca as local demand warrants. Coca is a traditional crop, with Bolivians for generations using the leaf to fight fatigue, reduce altitude sickness in the Andean mountain country and divine the future in indigenous rituals. Chemically processed, coca becomes the addictive stimulant cocaine, an illegal drug in the country and around the world. Under the proposed law, the legal cultivation area for the country's two main coca-growing regions would be capped at 13,000 hectares for the Los Yungas region and 7,000 hectares in the Chapare region, where Morales used to grow coca. According to the United Nations in its latest report, in 2015 Bolivia had 20,2000 coca-growing hectares and was the world's third-largest producer after Colombia and Peru.

Remainers like me must understand why people voted for Brexit. I feel the way it has shifted, the Remainers had given ground. Not saying we are going to fight the referendum all over again, we're saying we want a relationship with Europe and we will campaign for that.

It's a second-order issue precisely what policies are, what we know is that he's not racist, he is pro-European, he is socially liberal. And he will fight off some of the dark forces in France and across Europe. Hello to everyone. This is a message for American researchers... He has a canny political sense for appealing to liberals. I do know how your new President now has decided to jeopardise your budget, your initiatives, as he is extremely sceptical about climate change.

He is economically liberal, he's against the French 35-hour week. And he is an unashamed globalist. He is the antithesis of Donald Trump. What I like best about Macron is that he is not of the right. Not of the far right. Where we are now in politics, anybody who can win who is not of the right and who will fight off the right is an asset.

He disagreed with another tireless African-American civil-rights advocate, Booker T. Washington, who believed in a more practical education in the trades. In the words of Du Bois, Education must not simply teach workit must teach life. Du Bois himself was a very accomplished man and likely arrived at his opinions due to his upbringing. He was born in Great Barrington, Massachusetts, into a socially progressive community which embraced a more racially integrated way of life. His experiences afforded him a good start in life and he noted, I had a happy childhood and acceptance in the community. Because of his progressive beginnings, he had the opportunity to receive a good education and went on to become the first African American to graduate with a Ph.D. from Harvard. Throughout his life he was deeply involved in the fight for the rights of African-Americans and was also a prolific author of such important works as The Souls of Black Folk and Black Reconstruction in America .

Watchable is hoping to get viewers hooked to its new series with one simple, age-old question: Would You Rather? The Comcast streaming video platform has launched a new series from The Cut called Dan and Dietrich Play Would You Rather. In it, the two dudes tackle "would you rather?" questions with twisted twist because once they've made their choice, they actually have to go through with the task, no matter how gross, humiliating or potentially damaging. For example: Would you rather eat the entire McDonald's menu deep fried or blended together into a smoothie? Take a poop in front of 10 strangers or live stream it? Get shot with a rubber bullet or get tased? Watch porn with your parents or fight an MMA fighter? Read more... More about The Cut , Would You Rather , Web Series , Watchable , and Entertainment

The beginning of Trump’s presidency has included numerous drastic policy initiatives, most in the form of executive orders. The orders come with little warning and with each comes an indication of another. The suspense has put the community of interest groups, who fight for progressive causes, on high alert. And the seemingly constant barrage of orders enacted rapidly with expansive implications has created yet another obstacle for activistsexhaustion. VICE News Correspondent Evan McMorris-Santoro checked in with some of the sleep deprived advocates prepared to mobilize at a moment’s notice to challenge what they consider unjust orders.

Trump quoted Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.’s words; “We are determined to work and fight until justice runs down like water and righteousness like a mighty stream,” before expressing his hopes for nationwide unity. The president stated that "we have a divided country, it's been divided for many, many years but we're going to bring it together, I hope every day of my presidency we will be honouring the determination and work toward a very worthy goal."
