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

sorrymigrantx.jpg imageIreland - Migrant X refused an abortion and forced to have a C-section 22:31 Thu 21 Aug by Andrew 0 comments

This is as complete a story about what happened to 'Migrant X' that we are aware of.  Migrant X is a young migrant women who it emerged was refused an abortion by the Irish state despite apparently meeting the grounds of the X-case legislation and instead forced to carry the pregnancy and agree to a C-section.  The pregnanacy itself was the result of rape, Migrant X attempted suicide after being refused the abortion and later went on a hunger and thirst strike.  Once what had happened to her became known there were sizeable pro-choice solidarity demonstrations called across Ireland and at Irish embassies overseas.   We have been given information that the migrant woman at the centre of the current forced pregnancy was 'committed' to a psychiatric hospital following her initial request for termination. It’s already known that the initial request was made when she was 8 weeks pregnant.  It was this crucial period in which she was being held incommunicado which led directly to the Caesarian option being possible to impose as an ‘alternative’ to allowing her to access the abortion she had asked for.

Saturday August 9th, a racist Ferguson police officer profiled and fatally shot a black teenager, Michael Brown, as he walked to his grandmother’s residence with a friend. He was 18 years old. Multiple witnesses told KMOV that Brown was unarmed and had his hands up in the air when he was cut down. “The officer shot again and once my friend felt that shot, he turned around and put his hands in the air,” said witness Dorian Johnson. “He started to get down and the officer still approached with his weapon drawn and fired several more shots.” The family and the community are calling his death an execution.

A crise do Iraque já se arrasta há décadas. Tanto o regime Saddam Hussein tanto quanto sob a atual "democracia", desde a invasão de 2003, não há liberdade, justiça social, igualdade e há poucas perspectivas para aqueles que são independentes aos partidos políticos no poder. Além da brutalidade e discriminação contra as mulheres e as minorias, um grande abismo foi criado entre os ricos e os pobres, fazendo com que os pobres ficassem cada vez mais pobres e os ricos mais ricos.

textPalestine-Israel, Israel attack on Gaza ending with a defeat of its arrogant power show* 19:34 Tue 12 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

Israel started the attack on the Hamas to sabotage the Hamas compromise with the west bank authority, and restore a weakened Hamas independent rule in the Gaza strip. Hamas compromise was a response to Egyptian closer intended to dismantle the Hamas. The failed Israeli attack will force it to contribute its share to significantly open the closer of the border between Israel and the Gaza strip which was till the attack based on the bare minimal on the margin of humanitarian catastrophe. Whatever the details of the new cease fire and arrangements, the failure of Israel vicious assault to stop the Hamas from firing rockets on Israel is a significant "game changer". The failed attack on Gaza and the continuing popular struggle in the west bank are hastening the international pressures to end the occupation of the West bank and the closer of the Gaza strip.

textPalestina-Israele, la lotta unitaria in tempi di guerra 17:07 Wed 06 Aug by Ilan S. 0 comments

Le lotte unitarie nelle solite località di Bil'in, Ni'lin, Ma'sara, Sheikh Jarrah, Nabi Saleh, Qaddum, le colline a ovest di Hebron, svoltesi nel weekend ed in settimana, si sono focalizzate sulla guerra a Gaza e sugli aspetti più evidenti dell'occupazione. Ad oggi, sembra che Israele abbia fallito l'obiettivo di insediare a Gaza un governo di Hamas indipendente ma indebolito, dato che le atrocità commesse su Gaza non sono riuscite a suscitare una pressione internazionale sufficiente a spingere l'Egitto ad allentare l'assedio su Gaza. Pare che tra Hamas e l'Autorità Palestinese in Cisgiordania verrà rinnovato quel patto che Israele ha così strenuamente cercato di sabotare. [English]

imageQue pensons nous de la crise actuelle en Irak ? Aug 05 Forum anarchiste du Kurdistan 0 comments

La crise irakienne est continue depuis des décennies, tant sous le régime de Saddam Hussein que sous le « régime démocratique actuel » depuis l'invasion de 2003. Il n'y avait ni de liberté, ni de justice sociale, ni d'égalité et peu de perspectives pour celles et ceux qui étaient indépendant des partis politiques au pouvoir. En plus de la brutalité existante et la discrimination contre les femmes et les genTEs ordinaires, un très grand fossé a été creusé entre les riches et les pauvres, rendant les pauvres de plus en plus pauvres et les riches de plus en plus riches.

imageKAF: Was wir über die aktuelle Krise im Irak denken Aug 01 Kurdistan Anarchists Forum 0 comments

Die Krise im Irak hält be­reits seit Jahr­zehn­ten an, seit sich das Land unter der Macht von Sad­dam Hus­sein oder unter dem „mo­men­ta­nen de­mo­kra­ti­schen Re­gime“ nach der In­va­si­on von 2003 be­fun­den hat. Es gab keine Frei­heit, kei­nen so­zia­len Frie­den, keine Gleich­be­rech­ti­gung und nur wenig Mög­lich­kei­ten für jene, die un­ab­hän­gig von den herr­schen­den po­li­ti­schen Par­tei­en waren.
Zu­sätz­lich zu der vor­han­de­nen Bru­ta­li­tät und Dis­kri­mi­nie­rung ge­gen­über Frau­en und gegen die ein­fa­chen Leute ging die Sche­re zwi­schen den Rei­chen und den Armen immer wei­ter aus­ein­an­der. Da­durch wur­den die Armen noch ärmer und die Rei­chen noch rei­cher.
