By : London - Monday January 16, 2006
3 comments
by Dissent! and Autonomedia Bob Geldof’s appointment as an advisor to the Conservative party has provoked a reassessment of the momentous week last summer when the G8 met in Gleneagles. This reassessment is aided by the timely publication of a new book full of first hand accounts by those more interested in shutting the G8 down than lobbying it. David Watts, one of the books editors, commented: "There seems to be a growing sense of disillusionment with the legacy of the Live8 (...)

The Night John Lennon Died
By : Henry Marchand - Saturday December 10, 2005

by Henry Marchand Twenty-five years is a long time, set beside the life span of the average human being. One quarter of a century, that’s time enough to experience all the usual milestones. But sometimes it seems a blink; sometimes, something that happened twenty-five years ago remains so vivid in memory, the passage of so much time is astounding. Assassinations. Declarations of war. Natural disasters. Political scandals. These are the kinds of public events, as opposed to personal (...)

CANNED MUSIC AT THE THEATER ISN’T A SWEET SOUND
By : CARLTON WILKINSON - Wednesday December 7, 2005
BY CARLTON WILKINSON The two-week musicians’ strike at Radio City Music Hall in November ended in a deal hammered out with the help of a mediator named by New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg. A job action staged by musicians union Local 802 halted a dress rehearsal, and the resulting dispute left the Rockettes dancing to prerecorded music for shows in the first two weeks of November. On Nov. 18, the live musicians returned to the "Christmas Spectacular," playing to packed audiences (...)

Singers and staff take drastic action in protest at budget cuts by Barbara McMahon in Rome Opera lovers in Italy this season may notice something different about the performers.

by Daniel Patrick Welch Synopsis: Once again, an old song acts as muse for Daniel Patrick Welch. Repopularized by a current Volkswagen ad, the Donovan lyric tweaks Welch’s sense of the futility of resistance in the quagmire that is today’s American political landscape. From a personal perspective, the writer describes watching as all his European friends flee one by one, a sort of metaphor for the international rejection of the would-be Pax Americana. To understand fully the (...)

English Translation of Lyrics to Bella Ciao
By : Michael P. Wright - Tuesday September 13, 2005

Michael P. Wright — Norman, Oklahoma USA mpwright9@aol.com Most Americans probably do not know the origins of the phrase Bella Ciao. This was the anthem of the World War II anti-fascist Italian underground. They called themselves partigiani (partisans). I assume that the words were written from the point of view of a resistance fighter saying good-bye to his lover. Here are the Italian lyrics and translation to English. Italians are invited to offer corrections if I have made any (...)

During a live Charity Concert on NBC tv, rap star Kanye West abandoned his pre-scripted comments and spoke his truth. “I hate the way they portray us in the media. You see a black family and they say we are looting, you see a white family and they say they are looking for food. And, you know, its been five days because most of the people ARE black. And even for me to complain, I would be a hypocrite because I would turn away from the TV because it’s too hard to watch. (...)

Visiting Havana for two concerts this weekend, member Mick Huncknall of the British rock group “Simply Red” described Cuba as “a unique country in the world.” Huncknall, the bands vocalist and composer, said he was surprised by the lack of commercial ads along Havana’s streets. “It’s different to the rest of the world, where all the cities seem to be the same,” he added.

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.

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 (...)
