¿Por qué Argentina no jugó con Israel?

La propaganda israelí intentó poner cara de valiente a una importante bofetada, afirmando falsamente que el partido cancelado fue por amenazas a los futbolistas argentinos. Respondiendo a la campaña de activistas de BDS, partidarios de los derechos humanos palestinos, futbolistas argentinos y otros, destacando los terribles crímenes israelíes contra pacíficos manifestantes de Gaza, cancelaron lo que se calificó como un partido amistoso con Israel. Originalmente programado en Haifa, se ...Read full article...

Es contra la ley en California ducharse y lavar la ropa en el mismo día

El gobernador Jerry Brown se jubila, pero no antes de aprobar algunas leyes draconianas como regalos de despedida para California. Dos proyectos de ley se promulgaron el jueves de la semana pasada para “ayudar a que California “esté mejor preparada para futuras sequías y los efectos del cambio climático”. Los estándares obligatorios de conservación del agua serán permanentes, de acuerdo con su redacción, y no solo para uso en ...Read full article...

It’s Against the Law in California to Shower and Do Laundry on the Same Day

Governor Jerry Brown is retiring but not before he passes a few draconian laws as parting gifts for California. Two bills were signed into law on Thursday of last week to “help California be better prepared for future droughts and the effects of climate change.” The mandatory water conservation standards will be permanent, according to their wording, and not just for use in times of crisis. To make a ...Read full article...

Si votar cambiara algo, ya lo habrían hecho ilegal

Las sociedades occidentales ofrecen pruebas de que votar no tiene mucho valor, y que cuando votar realmente desafía el Poder, el voto es anulado. La democracia como debería ser es pura fantasía en la mayoría de los países, especialmente en Estados Unidos, Europa e Israel: la dureza neoliberal triunfa sobre la justicia social. La temible activista política y social, Emma Goldman (1869 – 1940) una vez explicó: “Si votar ...Read full article...

If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal

Western societies offer proof that voting is meaningless, or that when it really challenges power, power makes it meaningless.  Democracy the way it should be is pure fantasy in most countries, notably in America, Europe and Israel – neoliberal harshness triumphing over social justice. Redoubtable political/social activist Emma Goldman (1869 – 1940) once explained: “If voting changed anything, they’d make it illegal.” George Bernard Shaw once said “(d)emocracy is ...Read full article...

La Era de la Democracia se acerca a su Fin

La era democracia occidental es una mentira. Sea lo que sea que haya sido, ahora yace bajo las aguas del dominio corporativo. Los pueblos europeos cuyos gobiernos fueron pagados para vender la soberanía de sus naciones a la UE están experimentando grandes dificultades para que se les permita gobernarse a sí mismos. Como resultado de la frustración de los italianos con la élite egoísta que ha gobernado Italia durante ...Read full article...

The Democratic Era is approaching its End

Western democratic states have been dying for a long time. The European peoples whose governments were paid to sell out the sovereignty of their nations to the EU are experiencing great difficulties in being permitted to govern themselves. As the result of Italians’ frustration with the self-serving elite who have ruled Italy for decades, the recent democratic elections in Italy brought to power two anti-establishment political parties, Five-Star and ...Read full article...

Rajoy refuses to leave while the PP prepares to obstruct

Mariano Rajoy went from being the President who had a budget and stability to attending his own political funeral at the inauguration of his rival Pedro Sánchez.  The change in presidents is a drastic and unexpected one that opens many questions about what will be the future of the former president and what may happen in the PP and its parliamentary group. Although there are no certainties, various PP ...Read full article...

There is no Crisis in Catalonia, the crisis is in Spain

While in Catalonia people already voted for independence, in Spain, voters trust neither the current leader nor his substitute. Over the past five years, the mainstream media in Spain and Europe have described the struggle between the legally elected government of Catalonia and its equivalent in Madrid as a “Catalan crisis”. However, as this week’s events have proven, there is no crisis in Catalonia, but there is indeed a crisis ...Read full article...

Lo que realmente se definía en la elección de Venezuela

Si bien la abstención registrada en la elección presidencial que acaba de realizarse en Venezuela no permitiría validar formalmente el carácter democrático de la victoria de Nicolás Maduro, el índice de participación, en plena guerra económica, es de hecho más que suficiente para demostrar el apoyo popular a las instituciones de la República Bolivariana. Porque es importante entender que, más que el mantenimiento o no de los chavistas en el poder, lo que realmente estaba en juego era el futuro mismo de ...Read full article...

The hidden stakes behind Venezuela’s presidential election

Formally speaking, the level of abstention during the Presidential election in Venezuela does not allow us to validate the democratic character of the victory of Nicolás Maduro. However, the amount of participation is easily sufficient, in the middle of an economic war, to illustrate popular support for national institutions. Indeed, far more than the Chàvists’ hold on power, what was in play was the future of the country faced ...Read full article...

Life Thieves: Billions of people lose their most precious resource: TIME

What is happening to time? It is being stolen from us. Time poverty is affecting us all. It does not matter where you are: in the United States, Japan, France or Spain. It does not matter what you do for a living. In the list of rights for which we must fight, we must include the right to free time because we are being robbed of it and in ...Read full article...

Qual é o Brasil que você quer?

Miséria, crime e corrupção colapsam o gigante sul-americano. SÃO PAULO – Parece repetitivo, mas a cada três ou quatro meses temos que falar sobre o Brasil; sobre sua pobreza, aumento do crime e da corrupção que ainda existem neste país sul-americano. Um número de brasileiros que caem na pobreza extrema todos os dias é incerto, enquanto o país está dividido entre hostilidade política e corrupção latente, apesar dos recentes ...Read full article...

Israeli Court approves Palestinian Holocaust

Under international law, ethnic cleansing is a crime against humanity – defined as the forced removal of ethnic or racial groups to benefit others.  In 1992, the UN General Assembly called forced ethnic cleansing “a form of genocide,” a war crime under international law. Genocide includes the forced expulsion of individuals from their land and homes with intent to harm or destroy an ethnic or religious group in whole ...Read full article...
