Tell Us Lies About Kobanê -unpicking the demand for Turkish & western intervention

Workers Solidarity Movement (Ireland) - Thu, 10/09/2014 - 09:12

The notion that the fall of Kobanê could be prevented by the intervention of the Turkish army is a smokescreen that covers the truth that they are already intervening - on the side of ISIS. The Turkish state's selective blockade of the border, which allows arms and volunteers to cross for ISIS, but strangles them for the YPG defenders of Kobanê is the decisive intervention that is giving ISIS the upper hand.

This fundamental truth has been put forward by some minority voices in the mainstream media. Chiefly those intrepid reporters on the ground trying to cover the story. Honourable mention should be made of the BBC's Paul Adams amongst others. But these marginalised voices have been drowned out by the official media line issuing from the central editorial offices downwards, that the Kurds of Kobanê and Turkish Kurdistan are protesting "against Turkey's inactivity" or "failure to intervene". This is the world turned upside down. And Orwellian newspeak where the exact opposite of the truth is reported as accepted fact. The banners the protesters are holding say "Turkey Stop Supporting ISIS".

Balochistan on the brink

The military occupation of Balochistan
“Come here, listen to this”, Ali slowly leafed through the pages of the local newspaper, “look, you see this small paragraph? This is an account from a fighter in the villages.” I asked him if he could translate. “Today we lost several fighters but we killed three Pakistani soldiers and shot down their helicopter”. I asked him whether he had visited the fighters in the Bolan Pass. “Yes, I’ve been there in my role as a government official but also as a Baloch, I negotiated with them on the release of a hostage, but I respect their fight”...

No, no son capaces

Anarkismo - Tue, 10/07/2014 - 09:55
La pataleta que protagonizaron por un ajuste franciscano en impuestos desnuda el alcance de su “Soy Capaz”: autobombo con una campaña publicitaria que convoca reconciliación, pero nada que comprometa su más grosero interés inmediato. Su aporte a la construcción de la paz se contrae a la promesa de enganchar en su firma a algún desmovilizado. Por presumir de dar el empleo que nunca crearon en respuesta a los favores tributarios recibidos una y otra vez. Ni bien se anunciaron medidas para llenar el hueco de $12,5 billones abierto por los regalos concedidos a los ricos en la reforma tributaria de 2012, protestó Luis Carlos Sarmiento, potentado de US$16.000 millones que ocupa el puesto 56 entre los más acaudalados del orbe. Se le oyó reclamar airado el día mismo en que se hacía, de un pastorejo, con $2,5 billones en la bolsa de Nueva York. Como si no le bastara con el poder de su hombre tras el trono, el superministro Néstor Humberto Martínez. También le pareció inconveniente la reforma a María Mercedes Cuéllar, cabeza de una banca glotona que colma sus arcas exprimiendo a los colombianos y expropiando a usuarios de las voraces UPAC. Poco dijo José Félix Lafaurie, portavoz de los señores de la tierra, porque ellos no pagan impuestos. En su lugar, menea la idea de donar, por caridad, una vaquita al campesino sumido en la miseria por sus compadres de la guerra.

En este artículo analizamos el papel de los EE.UU. como desestabilizador del mundo árabe y del mundo islámico y como, a través del absurdo accionar del Departamento de Estado y el Departamento de Defensa de la superpotencia, el mundo se ve delante de un proceso unilateral (de hecho) a despecho de las instancias válidas de concertación mundial.

Mexique : des pistoleros contre la protestation étudiante

Anarkismo - Mon, 10/06/2014 - 14:06
Le Mexique est secoué par les révélations sur un massacre d’étudiant.e.s protestataires, le 26 septembre : 6 morts, 25 blessés et 38 disparus. On vient de retrouver les corps de 17 des disparus, exécutés vraisemblablement par des paramilitaires de mèche avec les pouvoirs publics.

Suite à l’attaque d’une manifestation d’étudiant.e.s mexicains dans le Guerrero par les forces armées de l’État, les organisations et associations qui soutiennent l’« Autre Campagne » en Europe manifestent leur solidarité.

Les nouvelles concernant les étudiant.e.s disparu.e.s sont alarmantes, puisque des corps ont récemment été retrouvés dans des fosses communes. Les témoignages convergent pour accuser les paramilitaires — de connivence avec les autorités locales — d’avoir commis ce massacre.

Análise inicial das eleições nacionais no primeiro turno

Dilma Rousseff (PT) teve cerca de 41,60% dos votos, seguida por Aécio Neves (PSDB) com 33,56% dos votos e Marina Silva (PSB) com 21,32% dos votos. Este é o quadro aproximado após a quase totalidade das urnas apuradas. Podemos chegar a distintas conclusões do processo. Antes cabe um retrato imediato acompanhado por uma narrativa dos dias prévios do primeiro turno.
