By : Rachel Sanderson - Monday October 17, 2005
ROME - Primaries to select the centre-left candidate to run against Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in next year’s elections were held on Sunday but were marred by a Mafia-style killing of a local politician.

But before the polls closed, police said two masked gunmen shot dead Francesco Fortugno, (...)

By : Peter Popham - Thursday October 13, 2005
By Peter Popham in Rome Italy is about relive two of its most shocking episodes of alleged police brutality as the trial of officers accused of illegal behaviour over attacks on anti- globalisation protesters proceed in Genoa.

Government revises bill after objections from Ciampi The governing coalition considered revisions to a controversial electoral reform bill on Friday in response to criticism from President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi .

"The publication of the ’diary’ of Fabrizio Gatti in L’Espresso magazine, in which, disguised as a migrant, the reporter spent 8 days in a temporary shelter and underwent a number of outrageous abuses, is further proof of our claims that shelters like the one in Lampedusa should be closed," said Refounded Communists leader Fausto Bertinotti.

Health lessons for Italians: eat 18 courses but forget the beach umbrella

by Mick Hume ITALY IS another country, they do things differently there, to paraphrase L. P. Hartley. So you hope that a fortnight in the sun on the Riviera dei Fiori in Liguria will also mean a holiday from the stifling climate of “Don’t eat/drink/do that” back home. Even here, however, the dead hand of the EU-wide health and safety regime now seems to have la dolce vita within its grasp. For example, the Vietato Fumare signs are spreading everywhere, since smoking in (...)

Italy : probe raises ghost of Calvi affair
By : Fred Kapner - Wednesday August 10, 2005
By Fred Kapner To seasoned observers of Italy’s colourful financial imbroglios, this summer’s Banca Antonveneta affair evokes memories of many of the country’s most lurid scandals. As details emerge of how Antonio Fazio, governor of the Bank of Italy, sought to favour Banca Popolare Italiana, a small Italian bank, over Dutch lender ABN Amro in the takeover battle for Antonveneta, one past scandal comes readily to mind: the Banco Ambrosiano affair. This culminated with (...)

ITALY, OUR 51st STATE: Exporting War-Pretenses for Karl Rove, Robert Novak

By Clayton Hallmark Have our Italian friends consumed too much of MSG or prions in their pepperoni? Have they thus taken leave of their senses that they allow the US CIA to get away with kidnapping persons from Italy? Have they taken so many steroids in bulking up for the soccer game that they are so deficient of testosterone that they will not bring the 19 US spies in the Abu Omar opera to justice? Surely if the US can kidnap persons it wants from Milan’s ancient streets, then (...)

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
Sunday 28 October

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. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one 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 (...)
