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

Los territorios de Bakur, o norte de Kurdistán –aquella región del sudeste del Estado turco- han sido militarizados y se reportan graves violaciones que persisten después de las elecciones, según lo denuncia un llamado urgente a la solidaridad emitido por la Unión de Municipalidades del Sur de Anatolia (GABB).

Η διαδρομή προς την ελευθερία βρίσκεται μέσα από την αγάπη και την αλληλεγγύη μεταξύ των ανθρώπων που αποτελούν την εργατική τάξη και όχι μέσω των πολέμων και της «σύγκρουσης μεταξύ των πολιτισμών». Υπάρχει μια επιλογή στην οποία πρέπει να προχωρήσουμε τις επόμενες ημέρες και τα χρόνια, μιας και το Παρίσι δεν θα είναι η τελευταία θηριωδία και τέτοιες επιθέσεις έχουν σχεδιαστεί ακριβώς για να εντείνουν τον μιλιταρισμό και να εξάψουν το μίσος. Οι σύμμαχοί μας δεν είναι οι δυνάμεις της ιμπεριαλιστικής σφαγής που δημιούργησαν αυτές τις συνθήκες, αλλά μάλλον όλες εκείνες δυνάμεις της περιοχής αυτής που αγωνίζονται για μια πραγματικά ελεύθερη κοινωνία.

– Exigim als governs de França i Espanya que deixin de desestabilitzar governs laics a l’Orient Mitjà, de donar suport polític a Turquia i les monarquies del Golf i de finançar i armar Al-Qaida i altres bandes salafistes a Síria i l’Iraq.

– Recordem a l’opinió pública catalana que els terroristes de l’DAESH (Estat Islàmic), d’Al-Qaida i altres bandes similars atempten diàriament al món islàmic matant desenes de musulmans. El problema no són els musulmans: és el salafisme, que és un fanatisme religiós

imageSiria: quale destino per i Curdi nei negoziati di Ginevra? Feb 10 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

La settimana scorsa si doveva tenere a Ginevra una riunione nel quadro dei colloqui indiretti tra il governo siriano e le varie fazioni dell’esercito di “opposizione” raggruppate sotto il nome di Alto Comitato per i negoziati. L’inviato speciale delle Nazioni Unite per la crisi siriana, Staffan de Mistura, ha deciso di rinviare l’incontro al 25 febbraio. Curiosamente, il partito curdo PYD, che è, tra l’altro, un attore politico chiave nel futuro della Siria e l’unica forza che ha combattuto lo Stato islamico sul terreno, è stato escluso dalla riunione. È paradossale che esso venga boicottato come membro della riunione, mentre i media occidentali spesso presentato i kurdi come “amici” dell’Occidente, facendo attenzione a non parlare degli obiettivi politici di questo movimento ed a limitare la loro simpatia ad immagini semi-erotizzate di giovani donne armati di fucili.

imageSíria: O que aconteceu com os curdos nas 'negociações' de Genebra? Feb 08 by José Antonio Gutiérrez D. 0 comments

Na semana passada estava prevista uma reunião em Genebra, no marco das negociações indiretas entre o governo sírio e as facções da 'oposição' armada reunidas no grupo divulgado pelo nome tonitruante de Alto Comitê para as Negociações. O enviado da ONU para a crise síria, Staffan de Mistura, decidiu adiar a reunião para o dia 25 de fevereiro. Curiosamente porém, foi excluído daquela reunião o partido dos curdos, o PYD, o qual, dentre outras coisas, é ator político importantíssimo no futuro da Síria e a única força que combateu em solo contra o 'Estado Islâmico'. É paradoxal que se boicote a participação do PYD, quando a mídia-empresa ocidental tão frequentemente vendeu a imagem dos curdos como os "amigos" do ocidente, cuidando atentamente de esconder os reais objetivos políticos desse movimento, e limitando sua simpatia a uma imagem semierotizada de mulheres jovens armadas com fuzis.

Il devait se tenir la semaine dernière à Genève une réunion dans le cadre des négociations indirectes entre le gouvernement syrien et les diverses factions de l' « opposition »armée regroupées sous le nom ronflant de Haut Comité des négociations. L'envoyé spécial de l'ONU pour la crise syrienne, Staffan de Mistura, a décidé de reporter la réunion au 25 février. Curieusement, le parti kurde PYD, qui est, entre autres, un acteur politique essentiel de l'avenir de la Syrie et la seule force qui ait combattu l’État Islamique sur le terrain, a été exclu de cette réunion. Il est paradoxal qu'il soit boycotté dans le cadre de cette réunion, alors que les médias occidentaux nous ont souvent présenté les Kurdes comme des « amis » de l'Occident, tout en prenant bien soin de ne pas trop parler des objectifs politiques de ce mouvement et en limitant leur sympathie à un image semi-érotisée de jeunes femmes armées de fusils.

Esta semana iba a darse una reunión Ginebra dentro del marco de las negociaciones indirectas entre el gobierno sirio y las facciones de la “oposición” armada agrupadas en el rimbombante Alto Comité para las Negociaciones. El enviado especial de la ONU para la crisis siria, Staffan de Mistura, decidió postergar la reunión para el 25 de Febrero. Curiosamente, de esta reunión se ha excluido al partido kurdo, el PYD, quienes son, entre otras cosas un actor político importantísimo en el futuro de Siria y la única fuerza que ha combatido en terreno al Estado Islámico. Es paradójico que se boicotee su participación, cuando los medios occidentales han frecuentemente vendido la imagen de los kurdos como los “amigos” de Occidente, cuidándose muy bien de no hablar mucho de los objetivos políticos de este movimiento, y limitando su simpatía a una imagen semi-erotizada de muchachas jóvenes con fusiles [Português] [Français] [Italiano]

Introdução – Nesta nova série, inicio um conjunto de textos de difusão que visam ganhar a densidade até se tornarem um ensaio posterior. A meta não é necessariamente polemizar de fora para dentro da academia, e sim servir como apoio da frente teórica dentro da corrente para os debates, proposições e perspectivas em termos de política internacional, economia política internacional e relações internacionais. Muitas vezes, diante da impossibilidade teórica, há impossibilidade estratégica, logo, nada se realiza e quase tudo se copia ou mimetiza. A razão desta nova série é aportar uma contribuição para diminuir esta lacuna.
