Contre l'islamophobie, pour le droit à la caricature de Charlie Hebdo

Contre l'islamophobie, pour le droit à la caricature de Charlie Hebdo | Daraja.net | Scoop.it

Un climat inacceptable de stigmatisation et de discrimination vis-à-vis des musulmans perdure en Occident, relancé par l'ignoble film islamophobe Innocence of Muslims. Cela alimente et renforce les divisions parmi les opprimés du monde entier dont les classes dominantes ne peuvent que se réjouir à un moment où elles imposent des cures drastiques d'austérité aux peuples.

Market turmoil - a very clear analysis of collapse in stock prices

Market turmoil - a very clear analysis of collapse in stock prices | Daraja.net | Scoop.it

A very clear analysis of the recent widespread collapse in stock prices by the Marxist economist Michael Roberts. He argues that the current market correction "exposes a big truth about the global ‘economic recovery’, such as it is, since 2009. It has been mainly based, not on investment in productive sectors to raise productivity and employment, but in fictitious capital."

South Sudan: The beginning of the end of the civil war? | Daily Maverick | Daraja.net | Scoop.it
In Addis Ababa, a grinning President Salva Kiir finally put pen to paper on a peace deal for South Sudan. Better 10 days late than never. While sceptics are right to wonder if his signature is anything more than a PR stunt, the truth is that peace doesn’t come easy – and this is as good a place to start as any. By SIMON ALLISON.

Noam Chomsky, Rogue States and Nuclear Dangers

Noam Chomsky, Rogue States and Nuclear Dangers | Daraja.net | Scoop.it

Throughout the world there is great relief and optimism about the nuclear deal reached in Vienna between Iran and the P5+1 nations, the five veto-holding members of the U.N. Security Council and Germany. Most of the world apparently shares the assessment of the U.S. Arms Control Association that “the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action establishes a strong and effective formula for blocking all of the pathways by which Iran could acquire material for nuclear weapons for more than a generation and a verification system to promptly detect and deter possible efforts by Iran to covertly pursue nuclear weapons that will last indefinitely.”

"The winners are eating for doing nothing": Corruption in South Africa | Daraja.net | Scoop.it

Anyone who still thinks that corruption takes place between the frontiers of the public and private space and between a 'private' actor who is assumed to be clean or a victim, and a 'public' official who is assumed to be inevitably pressing for a kickback, is a deluded liberal. Where are these individualized and sacrosanct frontiers in the power structure of South African society and polity? Please someone show me one.

African Civil Society Says No to Mining – Yes to Life!

African Civil Society Says No to Mining – Yes to Life! | Daraja.net | Scoop.it
Africa is rapidly becoming a huge mining zone. The hunger for Africa’s natural wealth – her oil, minerals, metals, land and water – is turning into a second scramble for our continent in a bid to drive the mistaken idea of endless economic growth and development. Over the last few years prospecting and mining has grown exponentially. As the more concentrated deposits of minerals, metals and fossil fuels become depleted, so the technology and toxins used to extract become ever more destructive. Mining is therefore no longer what it used to be. It is no longer in isolated pockets but it can take hold anywhere.

Soweto electricity protests: “Where is the money to pay for electricity going to come from?”

Soweto electricity protests: “Where is the money to pay for electricity going to come from?” | Daraja.net | Scoop.it
Earlier this month, residents of Dobsonville in Soweto took to the streets to protest against protracted power cuts in the area over the non-payment of electricity bills and their refusal to use the new prepaid electrical meters installed by Eskom.
The struggle over electricity in Soweto is now in its fourth month, after Eskom announced in May that it would cut electricity if residents refused to install the prepaid meters. The community says they simply cannot afford to pay for power and the prepaid meters would keep them in the dark. MANDLA NYAQELA spoke to two residents about the power struggles in the community.
