THEY ARE NOT ENEMY OF IRAQI PEOPLE!!

By : Collective Bellaciao - Saturday April 10, 2004
7 comments
Yesterday three Japanese were kidnapped on the way to Baghdad by one religious brigade. The brigade sent a letter demanding the Japanese government to withdraw the Self-Defense Forces, or Japanese Army from Iraq within three days and telling that they would kill them in the same way as Americans in Falluja if the Japanese government wouldn’t accept it. Three Japanese were going to Baghdad to support Iraqi people. Naoko Takato at 34 is a NGO activist of medical care. She is (...)

IRAQ AT THE BOILING POINT
By : Collective Bellaciao - Friday April 9, 2004
The Iraqi revolt against occupation is spreading in qualitative developments. The Pentagon is reacting with a murderous iron fist that is making the popular Iraqi position increasingly clear to the world: that the occupation forces are indeed an enemy - not liberators. In the last 72 hours, as the colonial force attempts to hold the country in a tight grip, the number of casualties has mounted, as Iraqi cities are besieged and bombed by missiles and tanks. Street fighting is raging (...)

The Italian poisoner
By : Collective Bellaciao - Thursday July 10, 2003
Berlusconi is not just another rightwinger; he is a threat to democracy Martin Jacques The Italian prime minister, Silvio Berlusconi, may have been forced to apologise, albeit belatedly, for his extraordinary attack on Martin Schulz, the German MEP, but it seems likely that the bitter taste will remain to sour the next six months of the Italian presidency. More importantly, this incident could serve as a long overdue wake-up call to Europe’s politicians and opinion-formers about (...)

EUROPE: Berlusconi refuses Germany an apology
By : Collective Bellaciao - Wednesday July 9, 2003
By Fred Kapner in Rome and Hugh Williamson in Berlin Silvio Berlusconi insisted yesterday that he would not apologise for comparing a German member of the European parliament to a guard at a Nazi concentration camp, ignoring Europe-wide condemnation of his remarks for the third day in a row. On Thursday the Italian prime minister had expressed "regret at being misinterpreted" in a telephone conversation with Gerhard Schröder, the German chancellor, who had demanded a full apology. But (...)

Profile: Silvio Berlusconi
By : Collective Bellaciao - Tuesday July 8, 2003
Silvio Berlusconi is Italy’s richest man whose reach is hard to escape. An Italian can spend a Saturday shopping at his local supermarket, relaxing in his home, reading a paper, before flicking through a few TV channels to watch AC Milan play football, and all these services may have been provided by his prime minister. For Mr Berlusconi is the head of a vast business empire spanning newspapers, TV and radio, film, football, advertising, insurance, food and construction. For some (...)

From Pinocchio to Mussolini and now Berlusconi, it’s a story of lies’
By : Collective Bellaciao - Tuesday July 8, 2003
Cristina Odone’s Diary Every nation gets the leader it deserves. And Italy deserves Berlusconi. The Italian Premier is bully, braggart and buffoon rolled into one. He stands accused of avoiding paying millions in taxes and his government is pushing through an immunity law to save him from corruption charges. Now in his new role of leading the European Union he has sparked an international row with his Nazi jibe against a German MEP. Yet, Silvio Berlusconi mirrors (...)

Where now after referendum in Italy?
By : Collective Bellaciao - Monday July 7, 2003
THE NUMBER of people voting in the Italian referendum which would have allowed the extension of workers’ rights did not reach the required amount of 50 percent plus one of the electorate. There were 12,188,917 voters, which was 25.5 percent. Some 86.7 percent of these were in favour of the extension of workers’ rights and only 13.3 percent against. The national secretary of Rifondazione Comunista, Fausto Bertinotti, said, "We have lost. The injustice for some (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January
2 comments
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" (...)

At first glance, the results of America’s 2012 election appear to be a triumph for social, racial, and economic justice and progress in the United States: California voters passed a proposition requiring the rich to shoulder their fair share of the tax burden; Two states, Colorado and Washington, legalized the recreational use of marijuana, while Massachusetts approved the use of marijuana for medical purposes; Washington and two other states, Maine and Maryland, legalized same-sex (...)

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 (...)

Thanks largely to the power and pervasiveness of the Internet, “for-profit” colleges (hereinafter for-profits) have become a growing phenomenon in America.

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART II

PART I PART III PART IV Several years ago, a young lady came into the college where I was teaching to inquire about a full-time instructor’s position in the sociology department. She was advised that only adjunct positions were available. Her response was, “No thanks. Once an adjunct, always an adjunct.” Her words still echo in my mind. Even as colleges and universities raise their tuition costs, they are relying more and more on adjunct instructors. Adjuncts are (...)

HIGHER EDUCATION IN AMERICA: DREAM OR NIGHTMARE? PART I
Friday 28 September
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru
PART II PART III PART IV When The Bill of Rights was added to the United States Constitution over two hundred years ago, Americans were blessed with many rights considered to be “fundamental.” One conspicuously missing, however, was the right to an education. This was not surprising given the tenor of the times. America was primarily an agrarian culture, and education, especially higher education, was viewed as a privilege reserved for the children of the rich and (...)

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO
Monday 30 July
by : David R. Hoffman, Legal Editor of Pravda.Ru

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 DEMOCRACY ENDURE?

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 (...)

Imagine, if you will, that the United States government passes a law banning advertisers from sponsoring commercials on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show or Rupert Murdoch’s Fox (Faux) “News” Network. On one hand, there would be two decided advantages to this ban: The National IQ would undoubtedly increase several percentage points, and manipulative pseudo-journalists would no longer be able to appeal to the basest instincts in human nature for ratings and profit while (...)

LIVE, from the State that brought you Senator Joseph McCarthy, Wisconsin voters now proudly present, fresh from his recall election victory, Governor Scott Walker! 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. This, after all, is a man who openly declared he is trying to destroy the rights of workers through a “divide and conquer” strategy; who received 61% of the (...)

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 (...)
