Reading Round-Up

What am I reading today? Aside from the articles indicated on the feed on the right, I'm also looking at a piece on the Brazilian army by (Notes on) Politics, Theory & Photography, and a translated opinion piece from La Republica on the Peruvian Times. I had seen the original but didn't have the chance to translate it myself. It's interesting because it links the recent news about the torture of mining protesters (see several previous posts) with the issue of military personnel moonlighting as private spies under the general topic of 'paramilitarism and parapolitics' (or, put more crudely: if you can pay, you can get people to do your dirty work in Peru).
