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

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.

Συχνά αναφέρεται ότι κατά βάση η υποχρεωτική στράτευση, ανεξαρτήτως κράτους, νομιμοποιείται κοινωνικά από τις εκάστοτε κυρίαρχες ιδεολογίες, τις πολεμικές και θρησκευτικές ιδεοληψίες, την πολιτική και κρατική διαχείριση και τους εθνικισμούς. Αυτό που αναφέρεται λιγότερο συχνά είναι ότι όλα τα παραπάνω, και φυσικά η κοινωνική νομιμοποίηση της υποχρεωτικής στράτευσης, αποδυναμώνονται -αν δεν απονομιμοποιούνται- από τις κοινωνικές αντιστάσεις και τις αρνήσεις των καταπιεσμένων.

Το Αναθεωρητικό Στρατοδικείο της Θεσσαλονίκης θα αποφασίσει για τις 2 εφέσεις που ακολούθησαν τις 2 πρωτόδικες καταδίκες του για το ίδιο αδίκημα. Το Στρατοδικείο του Μιχάλη Τόλη δεν αποτελεί απλά ένα δικαστικό ζήτημα ενός μεμονωμένου ανθρώπου με τις ένοπλες δυνάμεις, αλλά ένα καθόλα πολιτικό ζήτημα, το οποίο ξεπερνάει τις όποιες αποχρώσεις των εκάστοτε κυβερνήσεων και αποτελεί μέρος της πάλης της τάξης μας με το κράτος και με τους σάπιους θεσμούς που το ενσαρκώνουν.
Εκφράζουμε την αλληλεγγύη μας στον Μιχάλη Τόλη και σε όλους τους αρνητές στράτευσης που βρίσκονται στο στόχαστρο δικαστικών, στρατιωτικών και κρατικών θεσμών. Ο αγώνας τους είναι αγώνας όλης της τάξης μας.

Roughly 50 years ago we saw the dismantling of most of the European colonial empires in Africa. High hopes greeted the "new nations" that merged - and certainly, a move from colonial rule, with its racism and external control and extractive economies, was progressive.

However, many of the hopes were soon dashed. Politically, most independent African states moved in the direction of dictatorships and one-party systems, normally headed by the nationalist party that took office at independence - and, over time, the military became a major player too. Many of these states were highly corrupt, even predatory, and the gap between the rising local (indigenous) ruling class, and the masses, grew ever vaster.

Το ΝΑΤΟ, εκπροσωπούμενο από το τουρκικό κράτος, έχει τις τελευταίες ημέρες εξαπολύσει βομβαρδισμό των κουρδικών πολιτοφυλακών του YPG που είχαν προχωρήσει προς τα βόρεια του Χαλεπίου προς τις πόλεις A'zaz και Tal Rifaat. Οι βομβιστικές επιθέσεις, από τις οποίες έχουν σκοτωθεί τουλάχιστον 23 άμαχοι, επικεντρώνονται γύρω από την στρατιωτική αεροπορική βάση της Menagh, η οποία καταλήφθηκε το 2013 από ένα συνασπισμό “ανταρτών”, συμπεριλαμβανομένης και της Αλ - Κάιντα (Μέτωπο Al-Nusra) και άλλων οι οποίοι αργότερα θα σχηματίσουν Ισλαμικό Κράτος. Αυτό είναι ένα σημείο-“κλειδί” για τον εφοδιασμό της "εξέγερσης", η οποία εξυπηρετεί την πετρελαιο-θεοκρατία και τα συμφέροντα των ΗΠΑ και της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης.

imageNATO against the Kurds: The battle for A’zaz Feb 24 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 5 comments

NATO, represented by the Turkish State, for the last two days has been bombing the Kurdish militias of the YPG that had advanced to the north of Aleppo towards the cities of A'zaz and Such Rifaat. The bombings, which have killed at least 23 civilians, are concentrated around the military airbase of Menagh, conquered in 2013 by a coalition of “rebels”, including Al - Qaeda (Al- Nusra Front) and others that later would end up as the Islamic State. That is a key point to supply the “rebellion,” which serves the petro-theocracy and the interests of the USA and the EU. Ahmet Davutoğlu said that he has informed the vice-president of the USA Joe Biden about the bombings. Although Biden has not publicly approved Turkey’s military intervention, he has neither condemned it nor taken any action to restrain the Turkish State, which would never act without the absolute certainty that the U.S. would end up supporting them.

imageL’OTAN contra els kurds: la batalla per A’zaz Feb 16 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

L’OTAN, representada per l’Estat turc, porta dos dies bombardejant despietadament a les milícies kurdes del YPG que avancen al nord d’Aleppo cap a les ciutats de A’zaz i Tal Rifaat. Els bombardejos, que han mort almenys a 23 civils, s’han centrat en la base aèria de Menagh, conquistada el 2013 per una coalició de “rebels”, entre els quals participava Al-Qaeda (el front Al-Nusra) i altres que després acabarien en l’Estat Islàmic. Aquest és un punt clau per abastir la “rebel·lió” al servei de les petro-teocràcies i dels interessos dels EUA i la UE. Ahmet Davutoglu ha dit que ha informat d’aquests bombardejos al vicepresident dels EUA Joe Biden, que encara que públicament no aprova la intervenció militar, tampoc l’ha condemnat ni ha pres accions per frenar l’Estat turc, el qual mai actuaria sense la certesa absoluta que EUA acabaria donant-los suport.
