Lessons of a Left Victory in France
By : Rick Wolff - Thursday April 20, 2006
by Rick Wolff France’s leading bureaucrats, from President Jacques Chirac on down, have been defeated. French neo-liberalism — the dismantling of its welfare state in favor of business — has suffered a serious blow. A powerful alliance of high-school and university students and of organized labor achieved the victory against the government’s law that undercut job security for workers under 26 years of age. The alliance forced Chirac to annul the law — (...)

Why Oppose the Israel Lobby? Comments on Mearsheimer and Walt Gabriel Ash, www.dissidentvoice.org April 18, 2006 Two academics from the Chicago University Political Science Department and the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University shocked the tender sensibilities of the chattering classes when they published a damning study of how and to what extent "the Israel Lobby" influences U.S. foreign policy.

The Antiwar Movement Needs to Take a Look Around Resistance: the Remedy for Fear By RON JACOBS The French students and workers force the repeal of a law that would have provided employers complete control over the work lives of French youth.

Latin American School of Medical Sciences : free for all !

Housed on a former military base in Havana, the Latin American School of Medical Sciences trains  students from all over Latin America to be doctors, free of charge. Since the revolution in 1959, Cuba has had a long tradition of sending doctors and other medical personnel to countries in Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean in need of their services.  The devastation in Central America and the Caribbean caused by Hurricanes Mitch and Georges in 1998 increased this need exponentially, (...)

France: The Issue behind the Barricades

By Carl Bloice Boy, those students sure have a lot of people in a tizzy. From the slightly left of center of the political spectrum all the way to the far right, pundits and politicians are outdoing each others to declare that something horrible is going on in the streets of France. At the former end, the students are being roundly ridiculed as lazy elitists, and on the far right, the whole French nation is being characterized as crazy. Some of the drivel passed on by the New York Times (...)

Responding to their rallying cry, more than a million people showed up in the streets, marching in the familiar protest parades that the unions sponsor from time to time.

By Rick Kelly and Antoine Lerougetel An estimated 2 to 3 million striking workers and students demonstrated in cities and towns throughout France yesterday in opposition to the Gaullist government’s “First Job Contract” (CPE-Contrat première embauche) legislation, which permits employers to dismiss young workers without cause or compensation during their first two years on the job.

By CRAIG S. SMITH Facing crippling strikes and growing civil unrest, French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin today discussed with lawmakers watering down his contentious new labor law. But union leaders, who have refused to enter into a dialogue with the government until it has rescinded the law, showed no signs of budging on their promise to mount nationwide protests and strikes next week.

By Jon Boyle PARIS - France’s ruling conservatives looked to Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin to chart a way out of a youth jobs law crisis on Tuesday as the threat of a national strike and fresh protests kept up the pressure. The large public sector is expected to join a one-day work stoppage on March 28 and high school students took to the streets on Tuesday around France to demand Villepin withdraw the contract they say removes job security for young people.

Protests Heat Up as France Feels the Chill of Change
By : France - Friday March 17, 2006
PARIS, March 16 - Once again, students are on the barricades in France, evoking comparisons to the uprising of May 1968. But this is not a revolt. It is not 1968 revisited. Certainly, students are taking to the streets and shutting down universities, and tear gas penetrated the heart of Paris. Today, hundreds of thousands of protesters, most of them students, filled the streets and marched in cities throughout France. With teachers, workers, labor union leaders, the jobless, even retirees (...)

When a young Frenchman’s fancy turns to revolution

William Pfaff: When a young Frenchman’s fancy turns to revolution Governments in France are unwise to launch initiatives affecting students and the young when springtime approaches and the sap rises. Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin has put himself in a difficult situation at a moment when the French already suffer depression connected with unemployment, a sense of economic vulnerability and what seems like political futility. This week, Villepin confronts street (...)

France : a look at the growing revolt against CPE

French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin unveiled his labour law liberalisation package CPE on the 16th of January. He said that “urgent” action was needed to “bring the French labour market into the modern era”. The law would see employers hire 18-26 year olds on two year contract that would allow them to fire the youths without notice, and without explanation. In responce, student union bodies called for a week of meetings and mobilisation from 30th 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.

I’VE DECIDED TO "WASTE" MY VOTE

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 (...)

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.

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 (...)

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 (...)
