RT News - November 27 2020 (12:00 MSK)

Asylum seekers in the UK are being held in prison-like conditions at an abandoned army barracks - with London trying to gag whistleblowers. We tried to speak with those inside. Alternate realities - as many Americans left jobless by pandemic queue at food banks on Thanksgiving - the rich see their fortunes soar thanks to Covid. RT journalists are among those injured, as emotions run high in the Argentinian capital, where fans are grieving for Diego Maradona. In the US, a pharma company admits it deliberately mishandled an addictive painkiller distribution, further deepening the opioid crisis. We get reaction from a mother whose son died of an overdose.

Dear readers and commenters,

We have implemented a new engine for our comment section. We hope the transition goes smoothly for all of you. Unfortunately, the comments made before the change have been lost due to a technical problem. We are working on restoring them, and hoping to see you fill up the comment section with new ones. You should still be able to log in to comment using your social-media profiles, but if you signed up under an RT profile before, you are invited to create a new profile with the new commenting system.

Sorry for the inconvenience, and looking forward to your future comments,

RT Team.
