The socioeconomic pressure that’s building amid a deepening energy and food shortage crisis is leading to surges in worldwide civil unrest, a report is warning.
As food and energy shortages persist, the cost of living is soaring in countries around the world.
In Sri Lanka, Peru, Kenya, Ecuador, Iran, and Europe, pockets of unrest have already been observed.
However, new research forecasts that a broader wave of discontent is looming.
Earlier this year, Rockefeller Foundation President Rajiv Shah warned that a “massive, immediate food crisis” is on the horizon.
In June, United Nations said this summer that the world is “ marching towards starvation .”
The UN said that the situation brings an increased likelihood of civil unrest and political violence.
UK-based risk consulting and intelligence firm Verisk Maplecroft is making sense of the impending global turmoil.The company has just published an updated version of the Civil Unrest Index (CUI).The CUI covers seven years of data.

It reveals the last quarter saw the most countries ever have moved higher in civil unrest risks (101 of the 198 countries tracked by the firm saw increased risks of civil unrest, while only 42 experienced reduced risks).“The impact is evident across the globe, with popular discontent over rising living costs emerging on the streets of developed and emerging markets alike, stretching from the EU, Sri Lanka, Peru to Kenya, Ecuador, and Iran,” Verisk wrote in the report.It adds that conditions are worsening as the frequency of protests and labor strikes could accelerate into fall.“Although there have been several high-profile and large-scale protests during the first half of 2022, the worst is undoubtedly yet to come,” the firm warned.Verisk noted Algeria has the highest likelihood of projected civil unrest over the next half year because of rising inflation.Other areas include Europe, mainly due to […]
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
