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.

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

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

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.

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

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]

imageOs flancos abertos de Marina Silva são alvos móveis para as baterias do lulismo original Sep 19 by BrunoL 0 comments

Bruno Lima Rocha, 18 de setembro de 2014

Na reta final do 1º turno, faltando menos de vinte dias para o pleito, parece que finalmente houve um ajuste da estratégia de campanha do partido de governo (PT) e da defesa do mandato da presidente Dilma Rousseff. Como havíamos dito anteriormente, o pior dos mundos para a situação seria uma versão do lulismo mais palatável para os operadores midiáticos e com livre trânsito nos agentes com poder de veto. Tal produto de marketing político é a ex-ministra do Meio Ambiente Marina Silva. E, sua maior virtude publicitária, termina por tornar-se o alvo visível e concreto dos ex-correligionários petistas.

No primeiro semestre de 2014, a luta de diversas categoriais de trabalhadores (as) ganharam as ruas para o desespero de patrões e governos. O contra-ataque dos poderosos teve a ajuda da grande mídia, que tentou criminalizar os protestos e desmobilizar os lutadores. Isso ocorreu antes, durante e depois da Copa do Mundo, momento em que os noticiários buscavam legitimar as ações violentas dos aparelhos repressivos do Estado e seus governantes. Na sequência, vieram também as perseguições políticas e prisões de dezenas de manifestantes de forma autoritária, violando os meios democráticos e direitos humanos. [English]

imageEEUU en el Medio Oriente: hipocresía y doble discurso Sep 15 by BrunoL 0 comments

Bruno Lima Rocha*

El Oriente Medio es un ajedrez motivado por el peor realismo, mezclado con intereses geoestratégicos. Veamos por qué, a través de la doble posición de los Estados Unidos, Israel entró en una guerra “preventiva” contra Hamás, organización político-militar de fundamentación religiosa y que comparte el gobierno de la Franja de Gaza desde 2006. El saldo del conflicto fueron cerca de 52 israelíes muertos y más de 2000 palestinos eliminados físicamente. La infraestructura de Gaza fue destruida con la aplicación de la estrategia de “tierra arrasada”. Esta forma de combate viene de la política de Reagan y sus aliados centro americanos contra las guerrillas de El Salvador y Guatemala en los años 80. La postura de los Estados Unidos –ardoroso y autoproclamado defensor de los derechos humanos– fue tímida delante de la supremacía bélica y tecnológica del Estado de Israel. El país fundado por pioneros sionistas como Ben Gurión es el único del planeta con poder de veto dentro de Washington. Es por eso que la política de los EEUU para Medio Oriente tiene literalmente, dos pesos y dos medidas.

In the first half of 2014, the struggles of diverse categories of workers were taken to the streets to the dismay of bosses and governors. The powerful’s counterattack was supported with the help of the mainstream media, which tried to criminalise the protests and demobilise the strugglers. This happened before, during and after the World Cup – a time in which the news sought to legitimise the violent actions of the repressive apparatus of the state and its leaders. Following this came the political persecutions and arrests of dozens of protestors in an authoritarian manner, violating democratic means and human rights. [Português]
