Dante’s Slope
By : David Glenn Cox - Tuesday July 12, 2011
By David Glenn Cox I have been at loose ends now for two, could it be going on three years? Without a phone or an address to call my own, I have access to these things but they aren’t mine. For the last six months I have been staying like Dick Cheney, in an undisclosed location. I wonder now, if I’ve become a gentleman of the road? I’ve been placing an ad in Craigslist offering to do day labor, I’ve built fences, stained decks, built brick retaining walls. No job (...)

Uri Avnery: When imagined memory replaces the real in Israel
By : Uri Avnery - Monday July 11, 2011
1 comment
By Uri Avnery People see elderly, nonviolent human rights activists as dangerous provocateurs because the government and the media tell them so. For several weeks now, our army and navy have been in a state of high alert, bravely facing a deadly threat to our very existence: 10 little boats trying to reach Gaza. These vessels are carrying a dangerous gang of vicious terrorists, in the form of elderly veterans of peace campaigns. Benjamin Netanyahu has affirmed our unshakable (...)

A State Department That Can
By : Sean Penn - Saturday June 11, 2011
With due respect to the United States Department of State and Secretary Clinton, in regards to economic sanctions leveled under CISADA on Venezuela and six other foreign entities. Among the affected countries, only Venezuela is a nation in abject poverty. Oil is its primary export and the exceptionally devastating impact upon its people should be of specific consideration. There has been a systemic barrage of misreporting and context-shifting within the U.S. media and espoused by many U.S. (...)

TAMING THE UNIONS - The mirage of a social Europe (by C. GOBIN)
By : Le Monde Diplo - Monday May 30, 2011
France and Italy have undertaken to introduce a 35-hour working week. But this step forward has been greeted with serious reservations by most European Union governments, and with downright hostility by employers and heads of finance. The key word is now flexibility. But it remains to be seen at this month’s European Council summit what hope there really is for a "social Europe". What is sure is that European trades unions have been hopelessly slow off the mark. by Corinne Gobin (...)

100 Reasons for Revolution
By : Daveparts - Tuesday April 12, 2011
1 comment
by David Glenn Cox There comes a time when the Gordian knot must be cut when the systems and processes which might have been used to correct the errors and injustices of the meandering course of human affairs have been broken and have become decrepit. But worse still, it is when these processes have not become broken or decrepit but have been intentionally mutilated and deformed into a monstrosity. I began this article before the events in the Wisconsin Supreme Court race were announced. (...)

Paris: Week of solidarity and struggles against repression (20-27 february 2011)
By : semainedesolidarite - Saturday February 19, 2011
To control population movements is one of the States priorities. It is, in particular, to select with care the labour force needed for the economy, and this in a general context of deterioration in the standard of living. This selection requires the reinforcement of imprisonment of people called “undesirable”, border controls and raids, dropping visas and an intensification of the struggle against the ones who in one way or another go against keeping under control population (...)

Testicle Importation

By David Glenn Cox Those of you who know me well, know I’m a buy American first kind of guy. I don’t drive foreign cars or eat fancy foreign cheeses but you just can’t grow a good Brazil nut in Omaha. There are sometimes when importation is the only answer to a national shortage. Don’t ask me why, maybe its the fluoride in the water or all those atom bomb tests back in the 1950’s but this country is facing a serious testicle shortage. It would certainly seem (...)

Nicolas Sarkozy evokes memories of Gestapo by rounding up Roma for expulsion

TWO boys stood in a gymnasium in an eastern Paris suburb yesterday and pondered their future. "I want to be a mechanic and a footballer," said Benjamin, 14. "First, I’d like to go to school," he added. His companion, who has also never been to school, wanted to be a journalist. The boys’ immediate future is fairly certain. The French police will pack them off to Eastern Europe, along with other foreign Roma whom President Sarkozy plans to expel in a clampdown on illegal (...)

TV news reader quits in protest at Berlusconi
By : Michael Day - Thursday June 3, 2010
One of Italy’s top news readers has dramatically quit her job on state-funded television after claiming its coverage was biased in favour of the media mogul and premier, Silvio Berlusconi. Maria Luisa Busi, who presented the flagship evening TG1 news show on the Rai 1 channel, reportedly told bosses what she thought of the programme’s editorial line in a frank letter pinned to a notice board. Her abrupt departure at the weekend follows a series of clashes with TG1 editor (...)

"The Hurt Locker": A victory for women!? The Oscars Academy grants an apology to the US Army!
By : La Louve - Monday March 8, 2010

Is a movie that “only” costs $11 million more « politically correct » than a $500 million one? They can’t see the trees for the forest. Or more bluntly, had the Academy Awards wanted to grant ‘its’ army an Oscar without thinking twice about it? People will call it a ‘work of art’, a ‘movie’, ‘without an ulterior motive’ (yes I’ve already read it somewhere...) etc On top of it all, was the great March 8th pet theme: (...)

Immigrants Rally for a Nationwide Strike in Italy

By ELISABETTA POVOLEDO MILAN — In an effort to heighten awareness about the contributions made by foreign workers to the Italian economy, the promoters of the first strike by immigrants in the country invited workers to stay home and to boycott shopping for one day. Similar protests took place in other European countries on Monday (the initiative started in France and found supporters in Spain and Greece, as well).

New Caledonian union leader set free from ‘inhumane’ jail
By : New Caledonia - Monday January 18, 2010
New Caledonia’s pro-independence USTKE (Union of Kanak and Exploited Workers) union leader Gérard Jodar has been granted release from a nine-month jail sentence he was serving for disrupting air traffic during violent clashes on the tarmac of the Magenta domestic airport late May 2009. The ruling was handed down by an Appeals Court in New Caledonia’s capital Nouméa, local media reported. Mid-September 2009, a former appeal ruling reduced Jodar’s initial sentence of 12 to (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream
Friday 24 January

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 (...)

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

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.

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 (...)

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 (...)
