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

A crise do Iraque já se arrasta há décadas. Tanto o regime Saddam Hussein tanto quanto sob a atual "democracia", desde a invasão de 2003, não há liberdade, justiça social, igualdade e há poucas perspectivas para aqueles que são independentes aos partidos políticos no poder. Além da brutalidade e discriminação contra as mulheres e as minorias, um grande abismo foi criado entre os ricos e os pobres, fazendo com que os pobres ficassem cada vez mais pobres e os ricos mais ricos.

Les syrienNEs ont montré de manière répété qu'ils et elles refusent d'accepter les tyrannies qu'il s'agisse de celle de Bashar Al Assad ou de tout groupe extrémiste qui essaie de leur imposer sa vision. Dans les derniers mois, renforcé par les équipements militaires américains et iaquiens saisis en Irak, « L'Etat Islamique » (Précédement EEIL et connu localement sous le nom de Daesh) a fait des avancées considérables dans le nord et l'est de la Syrie. Là ou il est allé, il a imposé une interprétation haineuse et réactionnaire de la loi islamique et des restrictions sévères à la population locale, a commis des massacres sectaires et d'autres atrocités telles que des crucifixions ou des décapitation, et a assassiné et emprisonné des révolutionnaires.

Continua la guerra nella Striscia di Gaza governata da Hamas, anche se in tutto il mondo continuano le manifestazioni contro le scelte guerrafondaie di Israele. Dalla scomparsa dei tre coloni da Gush Etzion, (colonia per soli ebrei sotto il controllo totale dello stato di Israele in Cisgiordania), Israele ha posto sotto assedio quattro milioni di palestinesi, bombardando ospedali, scuole, ogni sorta di obiettivi civili, distruggendo e saccheggiando case, rubando, effettuando sequestri, ferendo e uccidendo sia in modo mirato che indiscriminato al di fuori di ogni legislazione internazionale.

Da molti giorni l'esercito israeliano bombarda la striscia di Gaza, in seguito al lancio di razzi sul territorio israeliano. Col pretesto di prendersela con i "terroristi", o con "quelli che rifiutano la pace", i bombardamenti colpiscono in realtà la popolazione civile, bambini compresi, e servono a scoraggiare con il terrore ogni volontà di resistenza.

Depuis plusieurs jours, l’armée israélienne bombarde la bande de Gaza, suite à l’envoi d’une roquette sur le territoire israélien. Sous prétexte de s’en prendre à des « terroristes », ou à « ceux qui refusent la paix  », les bombardements touchent en réalité surtout la population civile, y compris des enfants, et visent à décourager, par la terreur, toute volonté de résistance.

Η κρίση στο Ιράκ συνεχίζεται για δεκαετίες, ενώ ήταν υπό την εξουσία του Σαντάμ Χουσεΐν ή κάτω από το «σημερινό δημοκρατικό καθεστώς» μετά την εισβολή του 2003. Δεν υπήρχε ελευθερία ούτε κοινωνική δικαιοσύνη ούτε ισότητα ούτε και μια μικρή, έστω, ευκαιρία για εκείνους που ήταν ανεξάρτητοι από τα πολιτικά κόμματα που βρίσκονταν στην εξουσία. Εκτός από την υφιστάμενη βαρβαρότητα και τις διακρίσεις κατά των γυναικών και των απλών ανθρώπων δημιουργήθηκε ένα πολύ μεγάλο χάσμα μεταξύ πλουσίων και φτωχών, καθιστώντας τους φτωχούς ακόμα φτωχότερους και τους πλούσιους πλουσιότερους.

La crisi in Iraq risale al regime di Saddam Hussein ed è proseguita con "l'attuale regime democratico" dopo l'invasione del 2003. Non c'era libertà, né giustizia sociale; nessuna uguaglianza e pochissime opportunità per coloro che erano indipendenti dai partiti al potere. Oltre alle violenze ed alle discriminazioni contro le donne e la gente comune si è creata una forbice enorme tra i ricchi ed i poveri, con i ricchi sempre più ricchi ed i poveri sempre più poveri.

The Iraq crisis has been continued for decades while it has been under the power of Saddam Hussein or under the “current democratic Regime” since the invasion of 2003. There were no freedom, no social justice; no equality and also little opportunity for those who were independent from the political parties who were in power. In addition to existing brutality and discrimination against women and the ordinary people a very big gap was created between the rich and poor, making the poor even poorer and the rich richer.

textKurdish "Terrorists" Rescue Yezidis Aug 15 by PaulB 0 comments

The US special forces finally sent to Mount Sinjar in Northern Iraq to assess a mission to rescue the threatened Yezidis this morning [Thursday 14 August], reported that most of the displaced population had already been rescued in the previous days. What is not being widely reported is the identity of the Kurdish forces who secured the northern side of the mountain and opened a safe passage for the threatened Yezidi civilians, through the Syrian territory they control to Dohuk in the north of the Kurdish Autonomous region in Iraq.

Embarrassingly for the US, arriving on its white charger to save the day, only to discover they are far too late, the saviours of the Yezidis are the Turkish Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and their Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) allies. The PKK are officially on the US and EU “terrorist” lists and the autonomous Syrian region defended by the YPG is subject to blockade by ISIS to the South and West, Turkey to the North and the corrupt Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) regime in Kurdish Northern Iraq to the East.
