Wereldgebeurtenissen die in november staan te gebeuren

By Jordi Bou

November 1, 2019 - November 30, 2019 - The World Agenda gives a preview of world events scheduled for November. Events include the start of the year-long countdown to the U.S. presidential election, and Spain’s fourth general election in four years. Shinzo Abe becomes Japan’s longest-serving prime minister, Mexico marks 500 years since Spain’s conquest of the Aztec Empire, and Berlin celebrates the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Russia marks the centenary of the birth of Mikhail Kalashnikov, Mercury will transit across the face of the sun, and the first of several films about the 2018 Thailand cave rescue is released.

Nov 3, U.S.: The year-long countdown to the election for the presidency and control of both houses of Congress begins, with pressure mounting on Republican incumbent Donald Trump

Nov 8, Mexico: Hernán Cortes conquered the Aztec Empire 500 years ago, winning Mexico for Spain at the cost of vast numbers of indigenous lives. President Andrés Manuel López Obrador wants an apology from Spain and the Vatican

Nov 9, Germany: Berlin celebrates the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, which symbolized the Iron Curtain between the communist east and the capitalist west during the Cold War

Nov 10, Russia: The centenary of the birth of Mikhail Kalashnikov offers Russians a new opportunity to honour the inventor of the AK-47

Nov 10, Spain: The second election this year and fourth in four years takes place after Socialist acting Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez failed to get the necessary support to form
a government in April. Unrest in Catalonia is expected to dominate the debate in the lead-up
