Daniel Bensaid – 1946-2010
By : Paris - Tuesday January 12, 2010
Tragically, Daniel Bensaid, leading French revolutionary socialist and author of Marx For Our Times passed away this morning, Tuesday 12th January 2010. This is a rough translation of Liberation’s report of the death of Daniel Bensaid. The Marxist philosopher and theorist of the old Revolutionary Communist League (LCR), a predecessor New anti-capitalist party (NPA), Daniel Bensaid, died this morning at 63. He had been seriously ill for several months. After co-founding the JCR (...)

Olivier Laban-Mattei/Agence France-Presse — Getty Images PARIS — It was apparently just a little summertime spinning with the aid of a grocery chain, but Luc Chatel, the education minister and government spokesman, found himself in some hot water over a supposedly staged visit to a quiet supermarket on Monday.

Talk peace, make war
By : Diaspora Saharaui - Saturday August 15, 2009
It is inconceivable that the Polisario would agree to any arrangement that didn’t give the Western Saharans control of their natural resource assets, most notably the phosphates and fish. These alone would give the small population of the area a good per capita income, probably well above Morocco’s. And if oil is discovered does anyone really think that Morocco would allow the Western Sahara to control the petrodollars? Inconceivable. The Moroccan military is heavily entrenched (...)

Latin America : Social Movements in Times of Economic Crises
By : Solve et Coagula - Wednesday August 12, 2009
1 comment
by Prof. James Petras Global Research, August 12, 2009 The most striking aspect of the prolonged and deepening world recession/depression is the relative and absolute passivity of the working and middle class in the face of massive job losses, big cuts in wages, health care and pension payments and mounting housing foreclosures. Never in the history of the 20-21st Century has an economic crisis caused so much loss to so many workers, employees, small businesses, farmers and professionals (...)

Marseille Sways to a Maghreb Rhythm
By : Diaspora Saharaui - Wednesday August 12, 2009
By SETH SHERWOOD AS a warm Saturday night hung over the Mediterranean, the Algerian-French band Yazmen shuffled under the spotlights with its instruments — hand drum, flute, electric bass and a boxy, long-necked stringed instrument called a guembri — while a crowd filed into the hot confines of the windowless Tankono club. Couples arrived with children while bespectacled record-store geeks and a bald guy in a dashiki made toasts with Kronenbourg beers. Close to the stage, a (...)

By David Glenn Cox It is funny how sometimes you start out to write one story and end up writing another. I have been doing research on Woodstock and as the old joke goes, “If you remember it, you weren’t there.” I remember it well enough and I wasn’t there, but as I watched the You Tube videos I began to remember details long forgotten, plus some things that I’ve learned since. I was watching a video of the Rolling Stones in Hyde Park in 1969, playing "Honky (...)

Toppling a Coup, Part I: Dilemmas for the Honduras Regime
By : Al Giordano - Sunday August 9, 2009
By Al Giordano Last Saturday, at a hastily called public meeting in Tegucigalpa, more than one hundred rank and file participants in the Honduran civil resistance and some of its known leaders came out to speak with Ivan Marovich, the Serbian resistance veteran who had been invited by local and national anti-coup organizations to share his experiences. It was one of three such sessions, and the only public meeting of the three. Almost immediately upon the completion of the screening of (...)

Judges say UK spy visited Morocco 3 times while ex-Guantanamo detainee was held there
By : English & American press - Sunday August 2, 2009
A British intelligence officer repeatedly visited Morocco at the same time that a former UK resident was allegedly being tortured there, two senior judges said Friday. Supporters of Binyam Mohamed say the revelation casts doubt on the position of the UK spy agency, which insists it never knew he was being detained by Moroccan authorities. Mohamed, an Ethiopian who moved to Britain as a teenager, was arrested in 2002 in Pakistan. He alleges he was subjected to sleep deprivation and had his (...)

By David Glenn Cox I write about homelessness and I get answers like, “So, are you for or against Obama’s stimulus?” Recently I read an article that was highly rated entitled “Now is the Time to Give Up on the President.” The author, using snark and sarcasm, set up straw men and then proceeded to knock them all down, arguing that it is much too soon to criticize this president. The underlying theme was, however, that to criticize the President was to be (...)

French Call for the total prohibition of the use of nonlethal weapons by law enforcement

To the Attention of : THE PRESIDENT OF THE FRENCH REPUBLIC I would like to thank all those who have come forward in solidarity, who have passed on information and who have allowed us to speak of these acts of unacceptable violence. Two messages have reinforced my conviction that nonlethal weapons should be outlawed. The first message comes from the father of a high school student in Nantes who lost his right eye in similar circumstances. He summed up the report that was made by the CNDS (...)

Pesticides and preservatives causing Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and other ailments

by Monica Davis Many chemicals we commonly use are suspected of generating this increase in brain proteins, including pesticides, fertilizers and food preservatives. A new study found that a chemical ingredient that has been used as a food preservative contributes to several diseases. Time and again, the chemicals we use in agriculture, food preparation and medicine have proven that there is a price to pay for convenience. The convenience of pest and weed free crops, the convenience of (...)

A New Beginning
By : Daveparts - Monday July 13, 2009
By David Glenn Cox Political parties, like people, have a life span, but unlike people they are driven by their relevance. Political parties which are no longer relevant cease to exist. The Republican Party is a perfect example; its central core values of low taxes, small government and less regulation have been proven false and the Republicans have been exposed for what they are, the party of the rich, the party of less taxes for the rich, and the party of less opportunity for the poor. (...)

Obama’s Cap and Trade Carbon Emissions Bill - A Stealth Scheme to License Pollution and Fraud
By : Solve et Coagula - Friday July 10, 2009
by Stephen Lendman On May 15, HR 2454: American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 (ACESA) was introduced in the House purportedly "To create clean energy jobs, achieve energy independence, reduce global warming pollution and transition to a clean energy economy." In fact, it’s to let corporate polluters reap huge windfall profits by charging consumers more for energy and fuel as well as create a new bubble through carbon trading derivatives speculation.

by Eric Desrosiers In spite of all the ill spoken about it, the American health care system is even sicker than is generally believed, if only for economic reasons. The mother of all battles began a few weeks ago in Washington over the question of reform of the American health care system. This battle is not the first; in fact, the first proposals for in-depth change go back to the Truman administration years. As everyone knows, one of the important reasons for this desire for change (...)

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

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. 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 (...)
