Just how bad is the state of Swaziland’s economy? It’s a ‘catastrophe’ if you believe Roman Grynberg, senior research fellow at the non-governmental Botswana Institute for Development Policy Analysis, who said this week that changes made in the past to the way Southern Africa Customs Union (SACU) revenues were distributed, added to further changes being discussed for the future, would have ‘absolutely catastrophic’ consequences for countries such as Swaziland and would be ‘serious for political stability in the whole Southern African region’. ... read full story / add a comment

Estoy seguro de que debe restituírseles la tierra a los desplazados por la violencia. Pero también debe hablarse de la totalidad de la política agraria del gobierno de Juan Manuel Santos, sobre la cual, con todo cálculo, se silencian aspectos fundamentales, a pesar de que ellos afectarán profundamente todo lo que a la postre decidan los parlamentarios santistas sobre la ley de restitución.

At least six people have been shot dead in Mozambique's capital during clashes between police and demonstrators protesting against rising food and fuel prices. Police opened fire on protesters throwing stones and setting fire to tyres and barriers, but it was not immediately clear whether their bullets were responsible for the deaths. According to the AFP news agency, one boy was shot in the head and left dead in the street, while a police spokesman told Reuters two children were killed in the violence. Red Cross rescue teams in the impoverished southern African country said demonstrators were killed during separate protests in Maputo on Wednesday. "We have had 42 cases at the hospital. Twenty-three were wounded by gunshots. Two are being operated on at the moment. Nineteen have wounds from physical attacks. One died," Antonio Assis da Costa, director of emergency services at the Red Cross, told AFP. ... read full story / add a comment

En América Latina y el Caribe los Tratados de Libre Comercio son una continua fuente de conflictos y de oposición social. Muchas realidades y estudios constatan y denuncian los negativos efectos sociales, económicos, culturales y ambientales que ha representado para la región la firma de estos tratados. El peor referente se ubica en el Tratado de Libre Comercio de América del Norte, firmado entre EEUU, Canadá y México. Con 16 años de existencia, ha permitido comprobar cómo aumentó el desempleo en los tres países, se agravó el desplazamiento campo-ciudad (así como la migración Sur-Norte), se intensificó la destrucción ambiental y fue mermada la Soberanía Alimentaria, especialmente en las comunidades campesinas e indígenas.

I first knew Mozambique through close contact in Dar es Salaam with FRELIMO in the early and difficult years – the 1960s and the first-half of 1970s – of its armed liberation struggle. Then Mozambique was seeking both to unite itself and to find political and military purchase against an intransigent and arrogant Portuguese colonialism. And FRELIMO – under the leadership of, first, Eduardo Mondlane (to be assassinated by the Portuguese) and, after him, of Samora Machel – did indeed manage, by 1975, to lead the country to victory. Along the way, FRELIMO succeeded in liberating zones in Mozambique adjacent to its rear bases in Tanzania and Zambia where it built a new social infrastructure of agricultural coops, schools and health services. Equally important, it forged an impressive corps of politically conscious and disciplined leadership cadres (see Cabaço, 2001 and 2009). ... read full story / add a comment

TORONTO 26 Juin 2010 - L'intersection de King et Bay est la capitale financière du Canada. Dans le quadrilatère formés par ces rues infâmes, au milieu des gratte-ciel emblématiques, sont situés les sièges sociaux des banques, corporations, entreprises de relations publiques et cabinets d'avocats qui aident à diriger le capitalisme mondial. King et Bay, à Toronto, est le cœur du capitalisme colonial canadien, qui projette sa misère partout dans le monde, grâce à l'exploitation minière, la foresterie et d'autres entreprises d'extraction des ressources. ... read full story / add a comment

Corre un bel rischio chi volesse tentare un approccio critico, pubblico e non apologetico, dei Mondiali di Calcio, proprio mentre nel nostro paese siamo al culmine della frenesia collettiva per le aspettative di buoni risultati, nutrite da un buon sentimento nazionale e da una diffusa eccitazione. Ma è un rischio che bisogna proprio assumersi poichè, indipendentenente al contesto, è sempre necessario distinguere il mito dalla realtà. Nel caso del "più grande spettacolo del mondo", dando pure per scontati sia la bellezza che il divertimento insiti nel gioco del calcio, la fabbricazione del mito ha creato una situazione di ebbrezza, un sorta di forte e veloce euforia che oscura la realtà, a cui seguirà una rapida caduta depressiva nel ritorno alla realtà.

Offering an unapologetic public critique of the FIFA Soccer World Cup at the height of the collective frenzy of positive expectation, feel-good nationalism and general public excitement that now exists in our country is a risky thing to do. But it is a risk that needs to be taken precisely because, no matter what the context, myths always need to be separated from realities. In the case of the ‘greatest show on earth’, leaving aside the very real beauty and enjoyment of the game of soccer, the myth-making has created a situation akin to inhaling tik – a short-lived high/euphoria that obscures all reality, followed by a rapid, depressing ‘come down’ back to that reality. ... read full story / add a comment

Throughout Venezuela's record-breaking economic expansion, the government's opponents - which includes most of the international media as well as Washington - were "crying, waiting, hoping," as the rock and roll legend Buddy Holly once sang. The "oil bust" had to be just around the corner, they prayed and wrote. But for five and a half years from the first quarter of 2003, when the Chavez government first got control of the state-owned oil company, the real economy grew by 95 percent. Poverty was cut in half and extreme poverty by more than 70 percent, social spending per person more than tripled, and access to health care and higher education rose sharply. The voters rewarded Chavez with a re-election by his widest margin ever, 63% in 2006. ... read full story / add a comment

Entre algunas de las características más notorias del régimen uribista, se encuentra la de propalar mentiras en todos los terrenos para engrandecer las supuestas realizaciones del dueño del Ubérrimo. En el terreno económico, se nos aseguró, que estábamos viviendo en un paraíso de prosperidad que ni siquiera la crisis iba a dañar, porque la política económica de este régimen había sido tan benéfica que nos iba a blindar contra los peligros de la recesión mundial. A partir de tal falacia se postularon los “milagros económicos” a todos los niveles. Ya sabemos, con precisión, que tales milagros son en realidad pesadillas, como puede vislumbrarse al repasar de manera rápida unos cuantos aspectos de la economía colombiana, como los referidos al café, a la caída de las exportaciones a Venezuela y al deterioro del empleo y las condiciones de trabajo de los colombianos. ... read full story / add a comment
