KYIV: RECIPES OF CURBING THE CRISIS

KYIV: RECIPES OF CURBING THE CRISIS
Review of an international conference

Віталій Дудін, Денис Пілаш

2015-12-01 02 CURBING-THE-CRISISOn the day of the October Revolution, November 7, left-wing academics and activists in Kyiv proved their ability to carry out socially critical activities of international level. The renowned Kyiv Polytechnic Institute (KPI) hosted researchers from Ukraine, France, Great Britain, Russia, Belgium, Germany, and Greece. The“Economic Crisis or Crisis of Neoliberalism? Alternative Development Policy for Ukraine” conference demonstrated a high level of debate against the dominant ideological discourse. Economists, sociologists and trade union activists voiced many pressing  issues. However, the representatives of the Ukrainian government, who would need to hear the raised proposals in order to save the country from the collapse, did not show up at the conference.

Espagne: et si l’audit de la dette commençait par les municipalités?

Espagne: et si l’audit de la dette commençait par les municipalités?

par  Fátima Martín, Jérôme Duval

2015-12-01 01 No-Debemos- No-PagamosLe 24 mai 2015, lors des élections municipales, des centaines de nouvelles formations, aussi appelées « candidatures d’unité populaire », émergent et raflent les votes dans toute l’Espagne regroupant divers partis politiques parfois appuyés par des mouvements sociaux. Ahora Madrid, Barcelona en Comú, Guanyem, Ganemos... quelles que soient leurs appellations, celles-ci remportent un grand succès pour un changement de politiques fondé sur un processus participatif et transparent. De plus en plus de ces partis de confluence se positionnent en faveur d’un audit citoyen de la dette municipale.

France Returns to the State of Exception

France Returns to the State of Exception –

The discourse of war is already upon us,

but it must be resisted 

by ACHCAR Gilbert*

2015-11-22 01 ACHCAR GilbertFrench President François Hollande’s reaction to the terrorist outrage that struck again at the heart of Paris has been to declare war — just as George W. Bush did in the face of “the mother of all terrorist attacks” that struck the heart of New York.

By doing this, the French president has chosen to ignore the many criticisms of the Bush administration’s choice, even though these expressed the prevailing opinion in France itself at that time. And he did so despite the fact that the disastrous balance sheet of the Bush administration’s “war on terror” well justified its critics. Sigmar Gabriel himself, the German vice-chancellor and head of the Social Democratic Party, brother party of the French Socialists, has declared that talk of war only plays into the hands of ISIS.

The police state will, legally, prevail over the rule of law

“The police state will, legally, prevail over the rule of law” – France’s planned surveillance law: an attack on freedom

by PLENEL Edwy

2015-11-18 05 PLENEL EdwyThe French government is rushing through a bill which will give wide-ranging powers to security and intelligence officials to snoop on the nation’s citizens. The measure, dubbed by some the French version of America’s Patriot Act, will allow spies to tap phones and emails without obtaining permission from judges. It will also allow agents to bug suspects’ homes with microphones and cameras and add covert software to their computers to track every letter and word they type. France’s lower house of Parliament, the National Assembly, will hold its final vote on the draft legislation on May 5th. Though the government has sought to justify the proposed law as a necessary tool in the fight against terrorism, the surveillance bill has met with unanimous opposition from civil liberties groups, administrative bodies and the internet community. Editor-in-chief Edwy Plenel here explains why Mediapart is so passionately opposed to this “wicked” law and urges people to join the public protest against it which is planned for Monday May 4th.

2015-11-15 01 HANDSAu lendemain des massacres de Paris, les adhérents et sympathisants d’Attac, à l’’unisson de la société française, ressentent épouvante et révolte devant la haine aveugle et meurtrière. Attac exprime toute sa solidarité avec les victimes et leurs proches. Les personnes assassinées vendredi soir ne faisaient qu’exercer leur droit à la convivialité, à la civilité, à l’’art, à une vie libre, toutes choses que ces tueurs veulent éradiquer au nom d’’une vision fanatisée de la religion.

The cruelty of imperialist wars results in the cruelty of terrorism

NPA STATEMENT

2015-11-14 01 NPAThe horrible attacks which took place in Paris on Friday evening, killing 120 people, causing dozens of casualties, this blind violence, provokes revolt and indignation. The NPA shares these feelings and expresses its solidarity with the victims, with their close relations. This tragedy is even worse in that it hit innocent victims, the murderous attacks were aimed at the population.

This contemptible cruelty in central Paris responds to the equally blind and even more fatal violence of the bombings by French planes in Syria following the decisions of François Hollande and his government.

La Relativité, un siècle après sa découverte

La Relativité, un siècle après sa découverte

par KRIVINE Hubert*

2015-11-06 01 KRIVINE Hubert« Ce que j’admire le plus dans votre art, dit Albert Einstein à Chaplin, c’est son universalité. Vous ne dites pas un mot, et pourtant le monde entier vous comprend. C’est vrai, réplique Chaplin. Mais votre gloire est plus grande encore : le monde entier vous admire, alors que personne ne vous comprend. »

La théorie de la relativité restreinte a maintenant 110 ans et celle de la relativité générale, un siècle. Aussi ce dialogue attribué à Einstein et Chaplin a un peu vieilli : aujourd’hui la théorie de la relativité (restreinte) est enseignée à tous les étudiants en science, ce qui concerne quand même dans le monde quelques millions de personnes.

Last Words – Ultimas palabras: Santiago de Chile, 11 September 1973

Last Words – Ultimas palabras: Santiago de Chile, 11 September 1973 

 

Tuesday 11 September 1973, by ALLENDE SALVADOR

2015-10-31 02 AllendeThe Spanish text (reproduced below second part) is the transcript of the last radio broadcast of Chilean President Salvador Allende, made on 11 September 1973, at 9:10 AM, before he killed himself during the US-backed coup that had Augusto Pinochet overthrow his socialist government. The English translation (below, first part) is done by Yoshie Furuhashi.

ALLENDE Salvador: Last Words

Surely, this will be the last opportunity for me to address you. The Air Force has bombed the antennas of Radio Magallanes. My words do not have bitterness but disappointment. May they be a moral punishment for those who have betrayed their oath: soldiers of Chile, titular commanders in chief, Admiral Merino, who has designated himself Commander of the Navy, and Mr. Mendoza, the despicable general who only yesterday pledged his fidelity and loyalty to the Government, and who also has appointed himself Chief of the Carabineros [paramilitary police]. Given these facts, the only thing left for me is to say to workers: I am not going to resign!

Zoe Konstantopoulou at the European Citizens’ Assembly on debt

Brussels, October 16th

2015-10-26 01 Zoe Konstantopoulou at the European Citizens Assembly on debtIn Greece as everywhere else, debt is an instrument to subject the people to the interest of the wealthy. In the name of debt, the Troïka and the Eurogroup have forced Greece to continue to implement austerity policies. However, many movements throughout Europe refuse to bow to the blackmail, and are now looking for alternatives. Debt audits already took and are taking place in several countries, and we now need to compare and disseminate their results.

After the Portuguese parliamentary election: quicksand in the center and an emboldened left

 by CAMARGO João

2015-10-23 03 CamargoAlthough it may have come as a surprise elsewhere, the Portuguese center-right ultraliberal government, which went “far beyond the troika” has won a relative majority in last week’s general election. With 36.8% of the vote and 1.994 million votes, the previous governmental coalition (PSD and CDS) was the winner. In second place came the Socialist Party, with 32.4% and 1.746 million votes. The biggest surprise and strongest rise was the Left Bloc, which had 10.2% of the vote with 551 000 votes, followed by the Communist Party, with 8.3% and 446 000 votes. When compared to the previous 2011 election, the right-wing parties lost more than 700 000 votes, the Socialist Party (PS) had 160 000 more, the Left Bloc (BE) rose by 260 000 and the Communist Party (PCP) by 3400 votes.

Indonésie 1965 : Un bain de sang impérialiste

par VANEK Pierre

2015-10-19 02 VANEK PierreIl y a 50 ans, le 30 septembre 1965, un massacre inouï débutait en Indonésie. Plus d’un million de membres ou sympathisant·e·s du Parti communiste indonésien (PKI) furent assassinés, jetés dans des fosses communes, torturés.

Des dizaines de milliers de personnes furent emprisonnées sans jugement dans des camps. Disparitions, enlèvements, torture, ostracisme et mise au ban de familles entières… ont été par la suite les méthodes de gouvernement d’un régime qui a pillé les ressources nationales indonésiennes au profit de compagnies étrangères.

A critic of present mainstream feminism in the US: A Feminism Where ‘Lean In’ Means Leaning On Others

A critic of present mainstream feminism in the US: A Feminism Where ‘Lean In’ Means Leaning On Others

by FRASER Nancy, GUTTING Gary

2015-10-19 01 Gary-GuttingThis interview, the latest in a series on political topics, discusses philosophical issues concerning feminism. My interviewee is Nancy Fraser, professor of philosophy and politics at The New School. She is the author of “Fortunes of Feminism: From State-Managed Capitalism to Neoliberal Crisis.” – Gary Gutting.
Gary Gutting: You’ve recently written: “As a feminist, I’ve always assumed that by fighting to emancipate women I was building a better world — more egalitarian — just and free. But lately I’ve begun to worry that . . . our critique of sexism is now supplying the justification for new forms of inequality and exploitation.” Could you explain what you have in mind?
