European Constitution Treaty, by Bellaciao
By : collective Bellaciao - Saturday May 28, 2005
11 comments
by the Collective Bellaciao To us, who fight with many people involved in politics, trade unions and associations for the refusal of Constitutional treaty by European citizens, a European Constitution has to design the democratic framework for EU institutions functions. It must finalize a proposal process coming from periphery toward center, from peoples toward elected representatives. Our adversaries, lead by financial capital and neo-liberal doctrine, try to definitely set the previous (...)

French communists find new life in `no`
By : monstersandcritics.com - Thursday May 26, 2005
PARIS, France (UPI) — Facing a small audience of party faithful at a debate Tuesday vening, Patrick Bressac, a clean-shaven, 20-something climber in the French Communist Party offered a passionate primer on why French voters should reject the new European Union constitution at the polls Sunday.

No to the proposed European constitution ! Solidarity with the French left’s campaign to vote "No" !
By : projet-k.org - Tuesday May 10, 2005
22 comments
The proposed European constitution, adopted by EU member states on 18 June 2004 and currently being subjected to various types of ratification in countries across the EU, is a danger to democracy. It is an attempt to impose a socially destructive and economically neo-liberal order on a European scale. If the constitution is adopted, life for those living in the EU will be increasingly subjected to the laws of the free market and governed by institutions which defy any form of popular (...)

Chirac asks France to OK constitution
By : Paris - Friday April 15, 2005
8 comments
In 13 consecutive opinion polls in the past month, French voters have said that they are planning to reject the EU constitution in a referendum on 29 May. A French Non would in effect wreck the treaty and leave the enlarged EU to struggle on with its existing system of decision-making. This would also deal a near-fatal blow to the continent’s bold unification ambitions. A French rejection would all but destroy the charter - which European leaders agreed on five months ago after years (...)

NON TO FRENCH WINE, OUI TO FRENCH AD AGENCY
By : M Kato - Tuesday February 22, 2005
14 comments
When France refused to join in the "coalition of the willing," the right-wing propaganda machine rolled out the "Hate-Everything-French" campaign. Conservative media mouthpieces like Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh led the Franco phobic charge, exhorting their benighted minions to boycott everything French. There was even an effort to change French fries to "freedom fries." French bashing could be heard and read, in varying degrees of ferocity, across the nation as (...)

Gaps in French Briat death report
By : Diet Simon - Tuesday January 4, 2005
by Diet Simon The French anti-nuclear movement Réseau Sortir du nucléaire charges that there are serious gaps in the state attorney’s report on how a young activist was killed in November by a nuclear waste train. Twenty-two-year-old Sébastien Briat died on 7 November near Avricourt in Lorraine when he tried to stop a train taking waste from a French plutonium plant for storage in Germany, where it had originated. He was one of a group of eight. Contrary to first reports, it is (...)

France Passes Wide Reaching Anti-Homophobic and Sexist Law
By : Paris - Sunday December 26, 2004
Paris, December 25 (RHC)-France has outlawed the use of sexist and homophobic insults in legislation that places such insults in the same category as racist or anti-Semitic hatred. On Friday, the French Parliament effectively made any public insult that attacks a person’s gender or sexual orientation a punishable offense with a maximum fine of €45,000 or one year in jail. The legislation is an attempt to curb what authorities see as increasing homophobia and verbal violence (...)

France’s ’Watergate’ trial opens
By : Caroline Wyatt - Thursday November 18, 2004
By Caroline Wyatt In France, 12 people have gone on trial for running a phone-tapping operation used by the late President Francois Mitterrand to monitor his opponents. The defendants were almost all civil servants and they include current Renault chief Louis Schweitzer. The case has taken 22 years to come to court, because of state secrecy orders that prevented the judge gaining access to key documents. It has been described as France’s own Watergate scandal. All the defendants (...)

Fresh elections on agenda to avert strife in French Polynesia

By ANGELA GREGORY France wants representatives on each side of the French Polynesian political impasse to meet in Paris and discuss calling fresh elections across the territory. Two leaders are both claiming to be the lawful head of government.

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 (...)

Neo-Nazis and far-right protesters in Ukraine 3 live-stream

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

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 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.

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 (...)
