Gaza-bound ship carrying pro-Palestinian activists sets sail from Greece
By : Amira Hass - Monday July 18, 2011
SOMEWHERE IN THE EAST MEDITERRANEAN – On Saturday evening a Gaza-bound boat left Greek territorial waters. Its 10 participants regard themselves as representatives of the entire abortive flotilla to Gaza, and are determined to exhaust all possibilities in order to reach their destination, or at least carry out the symbolic act of protesting the blockade. They are well aware of the Lilliputian dimensions of their venture, compared with the massive impact organizers had initially (...)

By : Claude Ribbe - Monday June 13, 2011
Dominique Strauss-Kahn, the French ex-managing director of the International Monetary Fund, rich, powerful, famous, bloated with arrogance and vanity, is accused by a perfectly ordinary, hard-working African Muslim immigrant in New York of attempting to rape her and forcing her against her will to engage in sexual acts. Because the ambitious Dominique Strauss-Kahn – the self-proclaimed future president of the French republic – claims to be a leftist, because he was the (...)

THE MEANINGLESS CONCEPT OF ETHICAL WAR : THE CASE AGAINST INTERVENTION
By : JOHN CHUCKMAN - Friday March 25, 2011
By John Chuckman French air force planes struck the first blows: using “intelligent” munitions, the planes struck tanks and artillery which threatened the people of Benghazi. Now, who wouldn’t be heartened to learn that mechanized forces being used against civilians, civilians whose only demand was freedom from tyranny, were destroyed? One might easily regard intervention, limited strictly to such targets, as both ethical and desirable, but the truth is that (...)

Paris: Week of solidarity and struggles against repression (20-27 february 2011)
By : semainedesolidarite - Saturday February 19, 2011
To control population movements is one of the States priorities. It is, in particular, to select with care the labour force needed for the economy, and this in a general context of deterioration in the standard of living. This selection requires the reinforcement of imprisonment of people called “undesirable”, border controls and raids, dropping visas and an intensification of the struggle against the ones who in one way or another go against keeping under control population (...)

INDIGNEZ-VOUS! GET ANGRY! CRY OUT by Stéphane Hessel After 93 years, it is almost the final act. The end for me is not very far off any more. But it still leaves me a chance to be able to remind others of what acted as the basis of my political engagement. It was the years of resistance to the Nazi occupation — and the program of social rights worked out 66 years ago by the National Council of the Resistance! It is to Jean Moulin [murdered founder of the Council] that we owe, as (...)

The Faults in the French Educational System Aggravate Social Inequality

by Isabelle Metral and reviewed by Bill Scoble Aziz Djellab, professor of sociology at the university of Lille-III, comments on the latest PISA report. Both the media and the French Ministry for National Education were impatiently waiting for its publication: the PISA report [1] has just delivered its verdict. And the verdict is that the French system is getting more and more inegalitarian, and that social class remains a determining factor in students’ achievements. This means (...)

France joins Ireland in ‘raiding national pension fund’
By : Max Julius - Tuesday November 30, 2010
France has reportedly passed a law to use the assets in its €36 billion national reserve pension fund to pay off welfare system debts, as Ireland tapped its own reserve pension fund to supplement an EU-IMF bailout.

The American Revolution 1776, the French Revolution 1789, the terror 1793 – Napoleon 1799. The American Revolution financed in part by France, helped to deplete the French treasury in what Churchill called, “the first world war.” The depleted treasury exacerbated the domestic miseries of the French people, while the idea of (...)

Sarkozy should retire, says France
By : Mark Weisbrot - Wednesday October 27, 2010
By taking to the streets to defend their pension rights from regressive cuts, the French are fighting for all our benefits The demonstrations that have rocked France this past week highlight some of its differences from the United States. The photo here, for example shows the difference between rioting in baseball-playing versus soccer-playing countries. In the US, we would pick up the tear gas canister and throw it, rather than kick it, back at the police. More importantly, the French (...)

By David Glenn Cox There is good journalism and then there is bad journalism and then there is reprehensible journalism. The reprehensible journalist is akin to the kid whose parents worked two jobs so he could attend the Julliard school of music. Only to graduate and take a job with Muszak rewriting Black Sabbath songs to be used as elevator music with a Paul Anka impersonator singing, “I am Iron Man.” It is reprehensible not just because it is bad, but because the (...)

TWO boys stood in a gymnasium in an eastern Paris suburb yesterday and pondered their future. "I want to be a mechanic and a footballer," said Benjamin, 14. "First, I’d like to go to school," he added. His companion, who has also never been to school, wanted to be a journalist. The boys’ immediate future is fairly certain. The French police will pack them off to Eastern Europe, along with other foreign Roma whom President Sarkozy plans to expel in a clampdown on illegal (...)

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

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

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 (...)
