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. read full story / add a comment

Just over a week ago, if you were thinking of cities in Spain most likely to host the start of a proletarian uprising, Burgos would have come pretty much at the bottom of the list. A sleepy, socially conservative, traditionally ultra-Catholic city in the Northern Castille plain, Burgos was up until now mostly known for its Cathedral and other mediaeval real estate and a local sausage uncannily reminiscent of Clonakilty black pudding. But since the initial clashes between police and protesters in the working class district of Gamonal on the night of Friday 10th January, Burgos has seen nights of continual rioting, a veritable military occupation by riot police, and solidarity demonstrations this week around 46 cities in Spain, including two successive nights of demos in the capital Madrid, resulting in clashes with the police, arrests and injuries. All this supposedly over a plan to redevelop the main road through Gamonal into a tree-lined Boulevard. read full story / add a comment

Durante el primer año de su gobierno el producto nacional creció 6,1 por ciento, en 2011 un seis, en tanto las proyecciones para el año en curso están en torno a un cinco por ciento, debido a la crisis financiera de las grandes economías del mundo.

The slow-motion car crash that is the ongoing Eurozone crisis has hit yet another seizure point. The previous weekend’s French and Greek elections, Sunday’s German election in Nordrhein-Westfalen and the threat of a second Greek election next month, has raised the Eurozone stress levels back to panic levels. Hanging over the whole situation is the spectre of a death foretold - a funeral for the vision of the Euro as the party that no-one ever leaves. [Italiano] read full story / add a comment

ireland / britain / economy / news report Friday March 02, 2012 23:57 by Paul
Wednesday the European Central Bank (ECB) gave out 530 billion euros in 3-year term loans to the private banks of the Eurozone. Together with the 490 billion they doled out last December, that's over 1 trillion euros. If pigs could fly and politicians never lied and every household in the country was magically able to pay the hated Household Tax, the total receipt would be 160 million euro. At that rate, it would take 6,250 years to amount to 1 trillion. It would also take 20 years to amount to the 3.2 billion euros the state are handing over to the Anglo bondholders on the 31st March coming. read full story / add a comment

Come descrivere gli eventi che hanno sconvolto l'economia globale negli ultimi tre anni? La maggior parte dei commentatori economici concordano sul fatto che ci sia stata una crisi finanziaria, che ha dato origine a una recessione, ma che una azione rapida del governo per salvare le società finanziarie e "stimolare" l'economia abbia scongiurato la minaccia di una vera e propria depressione. Alcuni economisti non si aspettano una ripresa economica prima di un anno o due, mentre quasi tutti sono d'accordo che anche un miglioramento dell'economia sarà una ripresa senza posti di lavoro, ma l'opinione comune, almeno per il momento, è che il peggio è alle nostre spalle. Ma, con qualunque variazione, l'idea di base è che la causa principale dei problemi del mondo è stato il crollo del settore finanziario americano, causato dalla assunzione di rischi finanziari senza precedenti, stimolati dai fantastici profitti raggiunti da questo settore negli anni 90 e aiutati da una regolamentazione governativa lassista.

How are we to describe the events that have convulsed the global economy over the last three years? Most economic commentators agree that there was a financial crisis, which gave rise to a recession, but that swift governmental action to bail out financial corporations and "stimulate" the economy averted the threat of a full-scale depression. Some economists do not expect full economic bloom for another year or two, while almost all agree that even an improved economy will be a "jobless recovery," but the consensus view, at least for the moment, is that the worst is behind us. But, with whatever variations, the basic idea is that the root cause of the world's economic troubles was the collapse of the American finance industry, brought on by unparalleled financial risk-taking, stimulated by the fantastic profits achieved by this sector in the 1990s and helped along by lax governmental regulation.

I 50 giorni di guerra su Gaza sono finiti dopo che Israele ha implorato un cessate-il-fuoco ed aperto ad ulteriori richieste da parte di Hamas (di cui alcune tenute segrete persino agli stessi ministri israeliani). Una maggioranza di israeliani è disposta ad ammettere che Israele non ha vinto la guerra ma riconoscono con difficoltà che Hamas ha avuto la mano migliore. I ministri hanno approvato due settimane fa un documento del governo contenente una proposta di dispiegamento di una forza internazionale a Gaza, che può significare la fine dell'occupazione israeliana della Striscia di Gaza e l'apertura del ghetto... e può essere un precedente che potrebbe essere la fine dell'occupazione della Cisgiordania.

The 50-day war on Gaza ended, after Israel begged for a ceasefire and yielded to major demands from Hamas (some kept in secret even from Israeli government ministers). A majority of Israelis admit that Israel did not win the war but with difficulty admit that Hamas had the upper hand. Ministers passed two weeks ago a classified Cabinet document containing a proposal to place an international force in Gaza, which may mean the end of Israel's occupation of the Gaza Strip and the opening of the Ghetto... and may be a precedent to what could be the end of the occupation of the West Bank). In Israel, the "radical" left is back to "normal"... though many more activists are contemplating joining the comrades who had already lost hope and emigrated. It seems the international pressures of the imperial powers and the advances of the boycott movement are bringing the end of the 1967 occupation sooner than expected. [Italiano]

Durante mucho tiempo, el aborto fue considerado uno de los temas intocables en este país. Recientementese conoció el caso de una adolescente que, producto de lesiones provocadas por un aborto, concurrió al Hospital Luis Tisné y fue denunciada por el médico que la asistió. Sin reparos al código de ética médica, vemos como una vez más no se resguardó la salud ni la dignidad de las mujeres, infringiendo derechos básicos de las pacientes. Este caso se viene a sumar a cientos de los que ya hemos sido testigos en nuestro país, donde no existe ningún tipo de legislación en resguardo de las mujeres en estas situaciones, menos aún disposiciones que garanticen su autonomía corporal y reproductiva. Esto da lugar a la pregunta: ¿podemos esperar algún cambio por parte del gobierno de Bachelet?
