Nuclear train death: "Strategy to scare us"
By : NutzerInnen - Tuesday November 30, 2004

Göttingen (Germany) anti-nuclear activists have reflected on the dangers of railway actions after a train killed one in France. The following was stated at a demonstration by the AntiAtomPlenum Göttingen on 8 November, a day after Sébastien Briat died: “Perhaps for many of us it became clear for the first time yesterday that it is not just a cat-and-mouse game we play, we have to play, every year. ”But the fatal accident in Avricourt did not come from nowhere.

Territory and Deterritory: Inside and Outside the ESF 2004, New Movement Subjectivities
By : Rodrigo Nunes - Sunday November 28, 2004
by Rodrigo Nunes 1 - From Paris to London The path that led from the ESF in 2003 to the following edition in London was a lot less straightforward than a mere crossing of the channel; it went through a lot more detours and accidents, and raises important questions as to the present situation of European movements in their processes of deterritorialisaton and reterritorialisation. The London bid for the ESF was presented in Paris during the second edition as the result of an agreement (...)

Scottish Socialist Party in deep crisis
By : Rob Sewell - Sunday November 28, 2004
By Rob Sewell in Glasgow The Scottish Socialist Party, once heralded by many on the left as the most successful socialist experiment in recent times, is in the process of tearing itself apart after sacking its founder and leader Tommy Sheridan as the party’s convener. Officially he is now simply a “backbencher”. Sheridan was recently dumped as leader by a 19 - 0 vote by the party’s executive committee apparently over his mishandling of allegations about sexual (...)

In the summer of 2001, just months before 9/11, George W. Bush flew to Genoa, Italy to attend the economic summit of 8 leading industrialized nations. What did 50,000-80,000 protesters have to do with a terrorist assassination plot? Nothing. July 21, 2004 (revised Nov 26, 2004) 2nd-Op The G8, as it’s called, includes the leaders of Germany, France, Russia, Canada, Italy, Japan, Britian and the United States.

Germany and American hypocrisy
By : xymphora - Wednesday November 17, 2004
5 comments
The German people have been justly criticized for their failing to do anything to stop the Holocaust, with Jews disappearing off the streets of Nazi Germany to be killed while the Germans pretended not to notice. It has been one of the mysteries of history how the most civilized people on earth could have allowed the Holocaust to happen with nary a voice of opposition or complaint. How does this differ from the remarkable lack of opposition in the United States to the war crimes being (...)

Berlin Wall
By : Berlin - Monday November 15, 2004
The Berlin Wall (German: Berliner Mauer) was a long barrier separating West Berlin from East Berlin and the surrounding territory of East Germany. Its intent was to restrict access between West Berlin and the German Democratic Republic. It existed from 1961 until 1989. Background After World War II, Berlin, like the rest of Germany, was divided into four sectors, although it was surrounded on all sides by the Soviet sector of Germany. The Soviet Union, the United States, the United (...)

Calls for end to violence at funeral of murdered film-maker
By : Conway and Stephen - Friday November 12, 2004
By Isabel Conway in Amsterdam and Stephen Castle in Brussels The Dutch film-maker whose brutal murder sparked a spiral of racial violence in the Netherlands was cremated yesterday amid appeals for an end to a spate of attacks on mosques, schools and churches. On a bitterly cold Amsterdam night, the public heeded calls from municipal leaders not to turn up en masse but to follow the ceremony at home on TV. Theo van Gogh, a descendant of the 19th-century artist, was shot, stabbed and had (...)

Election Reactions from Germany : "Our Values Systems are Separating"

George Bush has been re-elected. Leading German foreign policy experts tell SPIEGEL INTERNATIONAL what the outcome means for transatlantic relations. Even before Kerry’s Wednesday concession, politicians and thinkers in Germany were at work strategizing the future of foreign relations with the world’s only superpower. A number of serious issues divide Germany and the United States — from the go-it-alone attitude of incumbent President George W. Bush to the Iraq war to (...)

LDH comments on the London ESF, preparing the Athens ESF
By : LDH - Friday October 29, 2004
By LDH Both European and World social forums aim to be spaces of open and pluralist democracy. They intend to bring together people who share the idea of possible alternatives to the neo-liberal model, as well as to facilitate the broader convergences through meetings and debates. Keeping that in mind, we are forced to state that some events occurred during the London ESF want comments from Ligue des Droits de l’Homme - French Human Rights League.

Germany Softens Stance on Sending Troops to Iraq
By : Erik Kirschbaum - Wednesday October 13, 2004
By Erik Kirschbaum BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany said Wednesday it could not rule out sending troops to Iraq, dropping its firm refusal to consider any deployment to the country whose invasion last year it staunchly opposed. Defense Minister Peter Struck said in an interview with the Financial Times newspaper that Germany might deploy troops if conditions in the country, now riven by insurgency, changed. "At present I rule out the deployment of German troops in Iraq," Struck told the paper. (...)

The Hoax of Paris Marie and the Ghosts
By : URI AVNERY - Wednesday July 21, 2004
By URI AVNERY Sometimes a trivial episode throws a revealing light on a grave public disease. A classic example: the Captain of Koepenick. On the face of it, it was a minor criminal incident: in 1906, a shoemaker named Wilhelm Voigt was released from prison, after serving a sentence for forgery. To get work he needed a passport, which, as a former convict, he could not get. So he went to a junk shop and bought the uniform of an army captain, commandeered some soldiers in the street, took (...)

Iraq War Supporters Lose in European Elections
By : LONDON - Monday June 14, 2004
Dutch opposition parties critical of the Iraq war scored significant gains at the start of elections for the European Parliament, while Prime Minister Tony Blair lost support across Britain in local voting, key tests since the invasion last year. Iraq, as well as domestic issues, concerned voters as the 25 nations of the recently expanded European Union began electing legislators a four-day process that started Thursday in Britain and the Netherlands. While Britain’s results in the (...)

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" (...)

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 (...)

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 (...)

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.

ONE SOLITARY LIFE, PART TWO

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 (...)
