Like the fading sun of the Summer, there is now little time left to enjoy the last days of Eurostasis we have been enveloped in of late. The relative calm that descended on the Eurocrisis, with the brief exception of the Cyrpus panic in March, is coming to an end with the German elections this coming Sunday. read full story / add a comment

Sabato 16 marzo i ciprioti si sono svegliati con la notizia di essere in procinto di essere derubati. Con un agguato pre-programmato e pianificato per concidere con un weekend di vacanza delle banche locali, i burocrati dell'Eurozona hanno minacciato di bancarotta il sistema bancario cipriota facendo paventare un ritiro immediato del supporto di liquidità da parte della BCE.

The rain is pouring, Summer's over and the Eurozone crisis is back from his hols. Timed nicely to coincide with the brutal Spanish riot police attack on the indignados protest outside the Madrid parliament, yesterday's statement by the remaining triple-AAA rated "Nordic Front" of Germany, Finland and the Netherlands, has put the cat back amongst the pigeons. read full story / add a comment

Come un incidente d'auto al rallentatore, l'inarrestabile crisi dell'Eurozona ha toccato un altro punto di crisi. Le elezioni in Francia ed in Grecia, le elezioni tedesche in Renania Settentrionale-Vestfalia e le nuove elezioni in Grecia il prossimo mese, hanno portato i sintomi di sofferenza della Eurozona a livelli di panico. Sull'intera situazione grava lo spettro di una morte annunciata: un funerale per l'icona dell'euro come un partito che nessuno vuole abbandonare. [English] read full story / add a comment

Per la stessa ragione è tempo anche per noi, che siamo interessati a lottare contro l'Europa della Austerity, fare il punto della situazione. [English] read full story / add a comment

The big bad ECB wolf is a-huffing and a-puffing but the first of the three little pigs is showing no signs of surrendering just yet. And behind the spectacle of the Greek populace standing up against its government and the core EU powers, lurks a recent historical shadow - a spectre is haunting Europe, the spectre of Yugoslavia. read full story / add a comment

Slaughter in Gaza. It's in the papers, on the radio, on the TV news. We stare numbed at the images of horror while eating our dinner. And then the spokespeople, one after another. Hamas are blaming Israel. Israel and the US are blaming Hamas. The Europeans and the rest of the world are blaming the US. One one thing they are all agreed, it's not their fault, the blood is on somebody else's hands. Meanwhile bloodied parents stagger through the streets of Gaza bearing the shattered bodies of their children. read full story / add a comment

Aunque éste pudo haber sido el evento detonante de la crisis, cabe subrayar que no su causal real. read full story / add a comment

The official story is that the origins of the current crisis lie in the collapse of the US subprime mortgage market - i.e. poor people not paying their mortgages. Although this may have been the trigger event, it is not the real cause. The real cause lies in pyramids not houses. Specifically the enormous debt pyramid built up by the Western countries read full story / add a comment

Imagine that, leaving the pub on Saturday night, you find a fight outside. The Gardai turn up, grab a load of people, including you, and drag you off to the station, and throw in a beating in the back of the van. Next morning you are taken to an interview room and an old garda gives you a cup of tea, apologises for the “mix-up” earlier and says you can go as soon as you’ve signed a 6 page statement he’s prepared for you. read full story / add a comment

This is the first part of a series of articles investigating the capitalist financial markets from a critical perspective. With such a large topic it is tricky finding a route into the subject and a plan of enquiry. The chosen road is to start with a look at the financial markets, particularly focusing on the mechanics of some of the instruments that have led to a momentous transformation of the workings of global financial markets in the most recent decades. read full story / add a comment

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.

textPalestina-Israele - conflitto senza fine tra il colonialismo sionista ed i palestinesi 17:56 Tue 22 Jul by Ilan S. 0 comments

Siamo al 13° giorno di guerra nella Striscia di Gaza governata da Hamas. In tutto il mondo continuano le manifestazioni contro le scelte guerrafondaie di Israele. Tutto quello che Israele vuole da questa guerra è rompere l'unità di governo palestinese ed evitare l'accelerazione degli accordi di pace. Il problema causato dalla resa di Hamas, messa in ginocchio dalla crisi economica, alla Autorità Palestinese, deriva dalle scelte del governo egiziano, il quale minaccia molto seriamente quel progetto di divisione permanente dei Palestinesi a cui Israele ha dedicato tanti sforzi. Il solo totale collasso del governo di Hamas nella Striscia di Gaza spaventa Israele più di ogni altra cosa. [English]

The war on the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip continues for the 13th day. Demonstrations against Israeli warmongering continue both in Israel and throughout the world. All that Israel wants in this war that it has initiated is to thwart a Palestinian unity government and curb the peace agreements it might speed up. The danger of Hamas' surrender to the Palestinian Authority in the heels of its economic crisis has resulted from the actions of the new Egyptian government, which seriously threatens the project of splitting the Palestinians, something that Israel has invested extraordinary efforts in. Only the total collapse of Hamas rule in Gaza scares Israel more than that. However, due to internal problems among the Israel political elite and public opinion, the government refrained from revealing the true nature of the war, which is to stabilize independent Hamas rule in Gaza and prevent the need for Hamas to surrender to the Palestinian Authority of the West Bank. So, instead the Israeli government has exaggerated the reports about attacks against Hamas and is hiding the real agenda - the obstruction of Palestinian unity. [Italiano]

El encantador de serpientes debería decidir su posición: o se sigue negociando en medio de la confrontación, y entonces debe asumir las consecuencias de esta torpe decisión, o se decreta un cese al fuego bilateral, y entonces debe tener capacidad para enfrentar las presiones de Washington y del bloque militar-terrateniente-mafioso. Decida lo que decida, lo importante es que Santos deje de exhibir un comportamiento esquizofrénico y asuma las consecuencias de sus acciones.

Al comenzar los conflictivos y rebeldes años ‘80, se inauguraba una segunda ola privatizadora, donde los Chicago Boys finalmente imponían su hegemonía política y su proyecto país al interior del bloque dominante dictatorial. Se implementaron las famosas leyes orgánicas constitucionales; las AFP, las Isapres, el Código Minero, la Ley Orgánica Educacional, etc. Toda la deuda privada de muchos empresarios se transformaba, de manera arbitraria, en deuda pública del Estado.

Terminada la Copa del Mundo de Brasil, tenemos ahora el inicio de la contienda presidencial. Con el principio de la campaña electoral el análisis político vinculado a los intereses mayoritarios tiene que identificar el centro nervioso del manejo de los recursos colectivos. Es allí que incumbe a la base de la pirámide social brasilera. No se trata de maniqueísmo, porque sería frívolo igualar a los gobiernos de Fernando Henrique Cardoso (1995-2002) a los de Luis Inácio Lula da Silva (2003-2010) y Dilma Rousseff (cuyo primer mandato finaliza ahora en 2014). Y sería todavía más irresponsable posicionar en la izquierda la propuesta del lulismo. Veamos por qué.

Como sugeríamos en la editorial anterior, la nueva conformación del bloque dominante, efectivamente está produciendo cambios en el clima político del país. Por un lado, tenemos a una derecha histórica que es incapaz de reacomodar un proyecto político coherente que le permita cohesionar a las distintas expresiones políticas que la conforman, al contrario, la fragmentación política vivida durante su último gobierno (Piñera) y el desarme que sufrieron luego de haber perdido las presidenciales del año pasado. Por otro lado, el conjunto de reformas instaladas en estos primeros 100 días de gobierno, están siendo cuestionadas por un número no menor de sectores organizados de la clase trabajadora, del estudiantado, y pobladores y pobladoras, que han seguido a pesar de este clima, movilizados, aunque con menor intensidad.
