FISHERY AGREEMENT BETWEEN EUROPEAN UNION AND MOROCCO ILLEGAL
By : Diaspora Saharaui - Wednesday February 9, 2011

The agreement is written in a way that it mentions only the fishery resources of Morocco, but does not exclude explicitly the fishing grounds of Western Sahara. Since (...)

Towards the global food crisis?
By : gorraiz germán lopez - Saturday July 24, 2010
The shortage of basic agricultural products for food (wheat, corn, rice, sorghum and millet) and the increase of such bestial products in world markets that had the tip of iceberg in 2007, will presumably "in crescendo" along the next decade and reached its zenith in the horizon of 2018. In reaching that crisis, (whose first sketches and are profiled and finish with crudely drawn at the end of the decade) have contributed the following elements: Economic Development suicide of Third World (...)

By : Monica Davis - Tuesday March 16, 2010
According to civil rights activist Eddie Slaughter, April 14th will mark 11 years of acknowledged bias and legal settlements in the long-standing black farmer class action lawsuit. Admitting errors in the past lawsuit, the federal government has agreed to pay some of those who were left out of the Pigford Case $50,000 to right some of the wrongs of de facto USDA institutional racism. Many black farmers say the amount is way too low, while critics claim the lawsuit is just another (...)

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.

Dirt Between My Toes—the Need for an Urban Agricultural Policy
By : Monica Davis - Friday June 26, 2009
In this day of mega, modern, and super-automated food production, the spirituality of food, the essence of our connection with the Great Mystery, through the food production and cooking process has been destroyed. It is imperative that we reclaim our spiritual appreciation of food and the process of growing, cultivating, preparing and cooking the food that sustains us. I have always felt that the way we procure food today is unhealthy, both spiritually and physically. Somehow, we have (...)

Destroying African Agriculture By Walden BELLO
By : Emily - Wednesday June 11, 2008
Foreign Policy In Focus 07 June, 2008 Biofuel production is certainly one of the culprits in the current global food crisis. But while the diversion of corn from food to biofuel feedstock has been a factor in food prices shooting up, the more primordial problem has been the conversion of economies that are largely food-self-sufficient into chronic food importers. Here the World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF), and the World Trade Organization (WTO) figure as much more important (...)

It’s not that my generation or the previous one haven’t thought of environmentalism, because most of us have, just not on the scale or with the commitment Gen Y presents. At least, not yet.

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.

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 (...)

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 (...)
