Since Hugo Chávez first took office, he and his party have won 13 of 14 national elections, mainly because they greatly improved the living standards of the majority of voters in Venezuela. Since 2004, after the economy recovered from the devastating opposition oil strike, poverty has been cut by half and extreme poverty by more than 70 percent. read full story / add a comment

El 30 de mayo Dan Rather, uno de los periodistas más famosos de EE. UU. Anunció que el presidente venezolano Hugo Chávez iba a morir “en un par de meses como mucho”. Cuatro meses después, Chávez no sólo está vivo y en campaña electoral, sino con las mayores expectativas de ser reelegido el domingo. Tal es el grado de tergiversación cuando se trata de Venezuela, probablemente el país sobre el que más se miente en el mundo, y del que un periodista puede decir casi de todo sobre Chávez o su gobierno sin que le reporte ningún problema, siempre que lo que diga sea negativo para el país o su presidente. Peor aún, Rather se refiere a Chávez como “el dictador”, un término que pocos científicos políticos que conozcan el país tolerarían, por no decir ninguno. read full story / add a comment

The old world order, in which US interests in the region East of the Mediterranean let Israel - a bastion of the US - continue with its Zionist settler colonialist in the 1967 occupied Palestine, has ended. Europe has started to advance its own interests, which are not in accord with the Israeli bastion. The independent steps of Europe are enhanced by its public opinion against Israeli colonialism to which the joint struggle in the West Bank contributes a lot. It was the approach of the imminent crisis that forced the Israeli Prime minister to call for elections, to save himself from the normally-timed election when the crisis would be the main agenda. The murder of the Palestinian minister of the popular struggles has focused attention on the ferment and rising of the popular non-armed struggles of which Israel is contemplating suppression with systematic use of live ammunition.

Lo Stato di Israele è stato costruito soprattutto dai socialisti nazionalisti che controllavano il 75% dell'economia nel 1949. A causa della dipendenza dalle potenze imperialiste i cosiddetti socialisti investirono soprattutto nella costruzione di una elite capital-sionista che perse il potere nel 1977. I conflitti di interesse all'interno della classe dirigente capital-sionista iniziarono a mutare l'equilibrio tra la piccola fazione di industriali favorevole all'espulsione dei palestinesi e la fazione capitalista integrata nella globalizzazione neoliberista che voleva sfruttare i palestinesi ed i lavoratori dei paesi vicini.

Oggi è in gioco la sopravvivenza della difesa collettiva dei diritti dei lavoratori e delle lavoratrici e non solo, di fronte a scelte politiche che tentano di disarmarci per segregarci in un futuro di schiavi, impotenti a reagire alla violenza delle politiche dei padroni. Oggi in piazza dobbiamo esserci in tanti se vogliamo cambiare di segno le politiche autoritarie di una Europa che cerca il suo spazio imperialista attraverso la compressione sociale.

image“Contabilidade criativa” e a incrível capacidade do governo em piorar a relação política a cada opor... Dec 18 by BrunoL 0 comments

17 de dezembro de 2014, Bruno Lima Rocha

No Brasil, a estimativa de perdas (ou gastos) com a corrupção é da ordem de R$ 69 bilhões de reais ao ano. Já a sonegação (sem contar a injustiça fiscal) chega a R$ 415 bilhões de reais. E, por fim, se da sonegação (e o sonegômetro quase ninguém fala), a gastança com a rolagem da dívida odiosa é ainda mais ocultada. Este gasto é da ordem de R$ 718 bilhões de reais ao ano! Esconder estes números e inverter as prioridades é o conluio da mídia hegemônica com os operadores do mercado financeiro e seus representantes, dentro e fora do governo de turno.

imageIl fronte della Rojava ed il complesso teatro delle operazioni della rivoluzione sociale curda Dec 16 by BrunoL 0 comments

L'analisi è relativamente complessa e la risultante sembra essere semplice. Le forze sociali della Rojava sono circondate avendo alle spalle il confine con la Turchia. Prima della liberazione della parte siriana del Kurdistan, le vie usate dai trafficanti di armi per l'approvvigionamento logistico dei jihadisti potevano contare sull'aiuto (tolleranza) dello Stato turco. Dopo il luglio 2012, le YPG, milizie di autodifesa organicamente legate alla TEV-Dem [composizione delle forze sociali egemonizzade dal PYD (Partito di Unione Democratica) che organizza la società locale] hanno cominciato a chiudere il confine nella ricerca di una autonomia regionale. [Castellano]

imageEl frente de Rojava y el complejo escenario de la revolución social kurda Dec 15 by BrunoL 0 comments

Por Bruno Lima Rocha

El análisis es relativamente complejo y el resultado parece ser simple. Las fuerzas sociales de Rojava, están rodeadas en la retaguardia, por el cierre de la frontera realizado por Turquía. Antes el bloqueo de la parte siria de Kurdistán, las líneas de los traficantes de armas y el suministro logístico de jihadistas, se realizó (tolerada) por el Estado turco. Después de julio de 2012, el YPG, milicia de autodefensa orgánicamente ligada a la TEV-Dem (composición de las fuerzas sociales hegemonizadas) y el PYD (Partido de la Unión Democrática), con la organización de la sociedad local) comenzó a cerrar la frontera en busca de una autonomía regional.

textThe Narrative of the Egyptian revolution (2011-2013) in the documentary 'Al Midan' (The Square) Dec 13 by Sweatshirt 0 comments

This essay seeks to address the subject of the Egyptian revolution by following the narrative of the revolution in the 2013 documentary Al Midan (The Square) by Jehane Noujaim. [footnote: Jehane Noujaim. 2013. Al-Midan (The Square). [http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2486682/.] The question under investigation here is: How is the revolution – its dynamics and its capacity – narrated in this piece of documentary film? Basically, I want to know, how the director and its narrators give meaning to this recent part of Egyptian history.
