The picture that shames Italy (video)
By : Peter Popham - Thursday July 24, 2008
1 comment
By Peter Popham in Rome It’s another balmy weekend on the beach in Naples. By the rocks, a couple soak up the southern Italian sun. A few metres away, their feet poking from under beach towels that cover their faces and bodies, lie two drowned Roma children. The girls, Cristina, aged 16, and Violetta, 14, were buried last night as the fallout from the circumstances of their death reverberated throughout Italy. It is an image that has crystallised the mounting disquiet in the (...)

Catch 23
By : Daveparts - Tuesday July 22, 2008
1 comment
By David Glenn Cox Probably the most profound statement made by a US President in the last fifty years was “It all depends on what your definition of is, is.” We no longer have Presidents who make profound statements, they would be lost over the heads of the masses and so the old axiom kicks in: If you can’t dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bullshit. Fox News claims the recent drop in oil prices is due to President Bush lifting the executive order banning (...)

Marina Petrella: not the only former Red Brigade militant facing extradition
By : France - Monday July 21, 2008
Sign the petition A former member of the Red Brigades, Marina Petrella was convicted in absentia in 1992, and sentenced to life in prison.

She was arrested in December 1982 and gave birth to her first daughter in prison a year later. In 1986, however, after being granted bail, she fled to France. Like other fugitive far-left activists, she benefited from a policy of (...)

160 years of labor struggle for shorter hours
By : Michel Etiévent - Monday July 21, 2008

By Michel Etiévent As far back as 1848, the employers opposed the reduction of the work day from 14 to 12 hours because “it would trigger a series of bankruptcies.” June 1936. The bosses are in a panic. The work week has fallen to 40 hours. The metal trades bosses thunder against the “law instituting laziness” : “Our companies are lost. How is the nation to recover if our workers, who are used to piece-work and are proud to do it, work half as much ? France (...)

Americans – a Superior Breed of People?
By : Siv O'Neall - Thursday July 17, 2008
By Siv O’Neall If not inhibited by a wise and loving upbringing, human beings certainly turn out to be the cruelest of animals. Other animals kill for food and possibly to save their own lives or the life of a loved one. Humans kill and torture from a cruel sense of power or for the ultimate fulfillment of their greed. All human beings seem to have a deeply ensconced need to feel and express their superiority over other humans. In other cases, they take their viciousness out on (...)

Topless model turned Italian cabinet minister sues comedian over ’lewd act involving Berlusconi’ jibe (video)
By : Nick Pisa - Friday July 11, 2008

By Nick Pisa It involves a former topless model and the Italian prime minister, and has all the makings of a risque joke. But the story about Silvio Berlusconi and a glamorous female cabinet minister hasn’t left many people laughing. In fact, model-turned-politician Mara Carfagna is now threatening to sue an Italian comedian who claimed she had performed a lewd act with the 71-year-old PM. For a fortnight, the country’s newspapers had been buzzing with wild rumours that Mr (...)

Friends and favours: Berlusconi & his ’butterflies’ (video)

The Italian premier’s penchant for a pretty face usually arouses nothing more than a snigger. But now it could land him in court. By Peter Popham in Rome and Claire Soares by Leonard Doyle For years, Italy’s perma-tanned 71-year-old prime minister has got away with acting like a sultan in his harem, and the Italian media, forgiving to a fault of private peccadilloes, has left him to it. He has laid siege to television eye candy, appointed some of the prettiest and least (...)

Early counting in Ireland’s referendum on the Lisbon treaty puts the "no" camp in the lead. Ireland is expected to reject the Lisbon treaty, the country’s justice minister admitted today. Justice Minister Dermot Ahern said unofficial indications showed the results of yesterday’s referendum on the EU treaty were going against the "yes" camp. Ahern said: "Based on the unofficial early figures it’s not looking too good for the "yes" side. "It’s still all (...)

On 13 December 2007, the heads of EU States and governments signed the "Lisbon Treaty" which they expect to take effect on 1 January 2009. This Treaty will govern the future workings of the European Union and, like the European Constitution refused by French and Dutch voters in 2005, it will set the course of a neo-liberal, free-market Europe in exactly the same way. The social needs of European citizens are not taken into account. Instead of respecting the wishes of Europeans for a (...)

The collapse of the United States is accelerating : Oil in Euros vs. US dollars

In the last eight years implementing the plans for the Project for the New American Century (PNAC) designed "to promote American global leadership" has backfired. To accomplish PNAC’s goals, all threats needed to be eliminated. From the onset, the United Sates earmarked two countries as mortal enemies: Venezuela and Iran. With Venezuela, it is well documented that the CIA attempted to overthrow the democratically elected government of Chavez. And with Iran, the United States (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE
Sunday 28 October
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART IV
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college. About a year into my studies, I (...)

Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

At first glance, it is almost unfathomable that anyone with a modicum of intelligence would have voted to retain Scott Walker as Wisconsin’s governor.

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
