eastern asia / imperialism / war Friday March 28, 2008 19:45 byLaure Akai
The struggle to be free is one that is commendable and deserves our sympathy. At this time when the state is committing brutal violence against a people, solidarity and action is needed and in fact, around the world well-wishers have expressed their outrage at the situation in Tibet. Protest movements have been calling for "an end to cultural imperalism", "freedom", even for "crushing the oppressor" and are united in such slogans and demands. Yet what if Tibet were to gain independence from China?
The question of national liberation is a complicated one. Discrimination, destruction of culture and community are forms of repression which are often seen in the contest of nation against nation instead of in the context of the ruling classes against the subjugated. Thus national liberation movements of all kinds tend to create the illusion of a mass common interest against an oppressor which is always external. "Self-determination" is too often a slogan which really means establishing the right of the elites of a given nation to exert power and influence, both economic and political, over those who would be subjects of a new nation state.

venezuela / colombia / imperialismo / guerra Thursday February 28, 2008 21:44 byJosé Antonio Gutiérrez D.
El 4 de Febrero, marcharon unos tres millones de personas en Colombia en contra de las FARC-EP. Es un número importante, que plantea a esta organización insurgente la necesidad inaplazable de corregir sus métodos viciados.

Hubo muchos que dijeron (uniéndose al coro de A. Rangel) que esta marcha representaba un supuesto “despertar” de la “sociedad” colombiana, en que ya no habría, supuestamente, espacio para la indiferencia. Pero el 6 de Marzo es cuando realmente tendremos la oportunidad de comprobar si esto fue genuinamente un “despertar” o, sencillamente, una marcha de sonámbulos en medio de la larga noche del Plan Colombia. Ese día los que marcharán serán las víctimas de la violencia, todas las víctimas, convocadas en una manifestación de repudio a la violencia de Estado –lo que por extensión incluye al paramilitarismo. Pero lo más importante es el espíritu de construcción de paz con justicia social que anima a esta nueva convocatoria: su principal mensaje será el acuerdo humanitario y la salida políticamente negociada al conflicto


internacional / imperialismo / guerra Monday December 10, 2007 18:03 byManuel Baptista
A estratégia geral ao nível dos governos, para a Cimeira Europa – África, a 7 e 8 de Dezembro, em Lisboa, apresenta um aspecto muito claro : cooptando abertamente as ONG, sejam elas internacionais, de países europeus ou africanas, pretendem realizar parcerias estratégicas.

As organizações (sindicatos, associações, colectivos, etc.) presentes no terreno social, nomeadamente, no apoio aos imigrantes e outras situações de precariedade, deveriam unir os seus esforços, porém mantendo-se fora da hegemonia política neoliberal. Caso se deixem cooptar, serão em breve neutralizadas, burocratizadas e perderão, por completo, a sua razão de ser.

central africa / imperialism / war Tuesday June 19, 2007 00:57 bySteffi
The Congo, a huge country located in the heart of Africa, is another perfect example why we have to change the political system we have today. The Congo has, since the beginning of outside intervention, suffered from different forms of violence and will also suffer from it in the future as long as there is no new global system. Millions of people have been killed and the killing, poverty and exploitation still go on. No government will ever change the situation of the Congolese people.

This article highlights how outside influence has played a major role in the Congo’s history and how it still affects life in the Congo. It thereby explores how the nation-state is a means to divide people along artificial lines, especially in Africa. Another reason for conflicts in Africa and especially in the Congo is the grouping of people into so-called “tribes” or “ethnic groups” that has been done by the colonial administration and the church. Its purpose was to put artificial borders between people in order to divide them and its political importance, even today, ignores what the real problems in the Congo are, namely the state and capitalism. Both exploit the Congo because of financial and political power and greed.

The following is an interview held with Sami Hermez on the 6th of June on the current crisis in Lebanon, that started on the 20th of May with the fighting between Fath al-Islam and the Lebanese Army. This has meant a major crisis for the Palestinian refugees, thousands of them being further displaced, many of them killed and wounded.

Sami is a Lebanese anthropologist who has been active in providing support and relief to Palestinian and Lebanese refugees. As well, he writes frequently to Electronic Lebanon taking a brave political stance in defense of Palestinians and against the US project for the region.
