Social Democracy or Revolutionary Democracy: Syriza and Us

Social Democracy or Revolutionary Democracy: Syriza and Us | Global politics | Scoop.it
All eyes on the Left are upon Greece. Not because of a general interest in the contradictions of capitalism in the midst of this particular crisis but because of Syriza. Unfortunately, what we are observing is not unique to Syriza. The story has been told before, and the story inevitably will occur again if we do not learn from it.

Enrique Ferro's insight:


It's been a long time since
we've run a video on
speculative science.

Here's one that will get
you thinking.

The earth is a globe -
unless you measure
things very carefully.
Then it gets weird
and interesting.

How Humberside police, CPS & UK govt conspired to cover up racist killing of Christopher Alder

How Humberside police, CPS & UK govt conspired to cover up racist killing of Christopher Alder | Global politics | Scoop.it
When a family member is killed, it is devastating for anyone. When that family member dies at the hands of the police, it is also likely to be the start of an overwhelming struggle to establish the truth.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Exactly what happened in that police van during the short one-mile journey remains shrouded in mystery; indeed it has never properly been investigated. What we do know is that by the time he arrived in the police station, he was unconscious again, had lost another tooth, and had received two additional injuries (a cut to the lip and a cut above the eye). He was then dragged into the custody suite with his trousers round his ankles and his belt missing, and left face down and handcuffed on the floor. No attempt was made to put him into the recovery position, and CCTV footage shows officers standing around chatting as he gasps for breath, still unconscious. Within 12 minutes he would be dead, with officers making racist comments and monkey noises over his corpse. It was a level of contempt that has characterized the state’s attitude towards Christopher and his family ever since.

Syrian rebels captured and beaten for ‘collaborating with crusaders’

Syrian rebels captured and beaten for ‘collaborating with crusaders’ | Global politics | Scoop.it
Farhan al-Jassem is not a reluctant soldier, but sadness lurked behind his smile and deep brown eyes when he talked about the past two and half years he spent trying to fight what he considers the good fight in Syria. In a tea garden in south-eastern Turkey last month, Lieutenant Jassem, 29, gulped down several bottles of water as he told the story of how he came to lead a key Syrian military brigade, trained and equipped by the US-led coalition, receiving training and equipment from a US-organi

Power in the service of Power

Power in the service of Power | Global politics | Scoop.it
It’s been a bad month for the angst-ridden US ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power. Last week, she was “outraged” by Russia’s veto at the UN Security Council of an international criminal court into the downing of Malaysian airliner MH17 over eastern Ukraine.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Preaching humanitarian war is selling one's soul indeed. And so are these people whose ambition distort the most basic concepts of morals and decency. This woman was instrumental in the destruction of Libya as a country and as a state, along with Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice, the three female war-lib tigers of abjection and hypocrisy. They are really the latest incarnation of US lack of humanity and compassion, the plotters of insane policies that are taking the world to a rotten end.

‘Boobs, not bombs': Hundreds take part in Ontario topless protest

‘Boobs, not bombs': Hundreds take part in Ontario topless protest | Global politics | Scoop.it
Hundreds of people, topless women among them, have taken part in a rally organized by three sisters who were allegedly stopped by police in Canada for cycling topless a week ago. Women in Ontario have had the right to go topless in public since 1996.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

 In July 1991 Jacobs, a Canadian university student, went topless on a hot summer day in Guelph. The teen, 19 at the time, said she saw a group of shirtless men and thought she could do the same, but was charged with committing an indecent act instead. Five years later the Ontario Court of Appeal overturned the conviction, however, stating there was "nothing degrading or dehumanizing" about her taking off her top in public.
