Washington, D.C.- Two years after Haiti’s devastating earthquake, the dire conditions in which a majority of Haitians live have failed to improve and in many cases have deteriorated, due to a consistent lack of progress in the relief and reconstruction efforts and the ongoing cholera epidemic, Center for Economic and Policy Research Co-Director Mark Weisbrot said today. Weisbrot noted that a general lack of accountability of international agencies and aid organizations has hindered efforts by Haitians to obtain justice and a better standard of living, particularly for those who lost their homes during the earthquake. read full story / add a comment

U.S. diplomatic cables now released from Wikileaks make it clearer than ever before that foreign troops occupying Haiti for more than seven years have no legitimate reason to be there; that this a U.S. occupation, as much as in Iraq or Afghanistan; that it is part of a decades-long U.S. strategy to deny Haitians the right to democracy and self-determination; and that the Latin American governments supplying troops – including Brazil – are getting tired of participating. read full story / add a comment

Haiti's first democratically elected president, Jean-Bertrand Aristide, is scheduled to return to his homeland this week after seven years in exile in South Africa. He was overthrown – for the second time – in a 2004 coup organised by the United States and its allies. Washington has gone to great lengths to prevent his return over the last seven years, and this week the state department once again warned that Aristide should not return until "after the [20 March] electoral process is concluded." read full story / add a comment

Turkish troops and so-called 'moderate Islamist' Free Syrian Army (FSA) militants have entered Jarablus town centre and taken over all government buildings from Islamic State. Reports say almost no clashes took place between the two sides as IS militants had evacuated the city days before. Footage from FSA militants also shows that there is no civilian presence left in the city in Syria's north.

Giovedi scorso, 23 giugno 2016, senza dubbio è stata una data storica in Colombia. In questo giorno si è concordato, nel solco dei dialoghi di pace e del tavolo di negoziazioni di Havana, il cessate-il-fuoco bilaterale e definitivo tra il governo nazionale di Juan Manuel Santos e la insorgenza delle Forze Armate Rivoluzionarie della Colombia – Esercito del Popolo (FARC-EP). Per molt* colombiane e colombiani, si tratta di un desiderio che si avvera. Pur condividendo l’entusiasmo popolare, segnaliamo che questa ancora non è la fine della guerra e che resta un lungo cammino da percorrere verso l'ottenimento di cambiamenti sociali reali a beneficio dei lavoratori e delle lavoratrici,de i settori sociali e dei popoli.

Ένας χρόνος έκλεισε σήμερα από την βομβιστική επίθεση στο Suruç στη Ν.Τουρκία στα σύνορα με το Kobane. Οι εκδηλώσεις μνήμης που είχαν προγραμματιστεί για το περασμένο Σαββάτο 16/07 ακυρώθηκαν, καθώς την προηγούμενη ημέρα η απόπειρα πραξικοπήματος στην Τουρκία συμπίεσε μεγάλης κλίμακας ιστορικά γεγονότα σε διάστημα λίγων ωρών. Όλες αυτές τις μέρες οι μόνοι που νιώθουν άνετα να κυκλοφορούν όλο το εικοσιτετράωρο μέσα στην πόλη είναι οι οπαδοί του κόμματος AKP και οργανωμένοι ή σκόρπιοι εθνικιστές ή φανατικοί ισλαμιστές που συμμετέχουν στην περιφρούρηση και την προστασία της πολύ- αμφιλεγόμενης τουρκικής “δημοκρατίας”.

Η αντικατάσταση μιας δικτατορίας με μια άλλη δικτατορία δεν σημαίνει ελευθερία για τους ανθρώπους. Οι στρατηγοί δεν μπορούν να μας δώσουν την ελευθερία. Μόνο οι αγώνες του λαού μπορούν να κερδίσουν την ελευθερία.

Πρέπει να οικοδομήσουμε την επανάσταση των εργατών και την ανατροπή του καπιταλισμού. Και μόνο τότε θα μπορέσουμε να οικοδομήσουμε έναν κόσμο ελευθερίας, ισότητας και αλληλεγγύης - έναν κόσμο σε ειρήνη.

If we want peace, we must follow the example of the workers and worker-soldiers who ended WWI. We must build a working class movement which spans across frontiers and cuts the ground out from under the capitalist governments that have no solution for international problems but war. We must make a workers' revolution and overthrow capitalism. And only then will we be able to build a world of liberty, equality and solidarity – a world at peace.

imageBarışımız var mı? Havana'dan Kolombiya'ya giden yoldaki zorluklar Sep 19 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

Üç yıl süren müzakerelerden sonra Küba'nın Havana şehrinde, Juan Manuel Santos hükumetiyle FARC-EP arasında bir barış anlaşması imzalanırken, ELN ile olan süreç çıkmaza girmiş ve EPL ile olan ise siyasetin gündeminde bile değil. Müzakerelerin iflas etmesinden korkan öngörüler boşa çıkarıldı. Bu anlaşma, bir mücadele devrini kapatarak yeni senaryoları ve yeni olasılıkları açacak. Bu isyancı hareketin silah bırakma kararı, geri dönüşsüz gözüküyor ve hareket, ne olursa olsun, "tekrar sivil hayata katılmak" denilen yolda devam edecek. Bu anlaşma yapısal değişiklikler getirmeyecek olmasına rağmen, kırsal nüfus için kayda değer iyileşmeler sunuyor. [English] [Castellano]

imageHabemus pacem? Challenges on the road from Havana to Colombia Sep 08 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

After three years of negotiations, a peace accord was signed in Havana, Cuba, between the government of Juan Manuel Santos and the FARC-EP, while the process with ELN is bogged down and that with the EPL is not even on the political agenda. The forecasts that had feared the possibility of a breakdown in the negotiations have been proved groundless, and it completes the cycle of a struggle that should necessarily open new scenarios and possibilities.

I piani e le cospirazioni tra Turchia, Qatar ed il Governo Regionale Curdo (KRG in Iraq) contro la Rojava non hanno mai fine. Documenti messi a disposizione da Wikileaks di recente riguardano incontri ed accordi tra questi tre soggetti ed un incontro segreto tra Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi e Barzani, il capo del KRG, caso mai ci fossero stati dei dubbi. Basta guadare i link in fondo all'articolo.

imageIn retaking Mosul YPG/J and the Guerrillas must be aware of the hidden agenda Aug 04 by Zaher Baher 1 comments

This article is about retaking the city of Mosul that has been under control of Isis since 09/06/2014. At the moment the Iraqi government is in talk with KRG and US forces about making plan to liberate it. In my opinion this will be one of the bloodiest battle that could happen in Iraq since 2003 after the invasion. I believe there is a hidden agenda, when Isis is defeated, it will try to run away. The liberator forces may push them to withdraw towards Jazeea in Rojava. So it is necessary for YPG/J and the Guerrillas to change their tactic.

textUno "specchietto" per le allodole o cosa? Aug 02 by Lucio Garofalo 0 comments

Chi ha tutto l'interesse ad arruolare, addestrare e strumentalizzare i miliziani jihadisti, temo che non insegua affatto delle finalità religiose. Mi riferisco a quei manovratori politici che siedono nelle "alte sfere" del potere che agiscono sul terreno internazionale. L'Isis si insinua dentro i conflitti intestini al mondo islamico, in primis nello scontro secolare tra sunniti e sciiti, per rovesciare i rapporti di forza vigenti nel quadro politico arabo-islamico, in regioni geopolitiche e strategiche assai delicate e determinanti per le sorti del capitalismo, quali il Medio Oriente o il Golfo Persico, non soltanto perché ricche di materie prime e giacimenti petroliferi. Da noi, nelle società secolarizzate occidentali, gli ideali religiosi sono stati soppiantati da altri moventi, che costituiscono dei veri e propri surrogati della dimensione religiosa. Mi viene in mente il tifo calcistico, giusto per indicare un esempio...
