Martí y nuestro tiempo

Martí y nuestro tiempo | Global politics | Scoop.it
Llegó a su término la IIª Conferencia Internacional “Con todos y para el bien de todos” organizada en La Habana por la Oficina del Programa Martiano. Este aforismo ha sido a menudo mal interpretado, como si Martí fuese tributario de una concepción negacionista de las clases sociales y su conflicto. En realidad era un fino observador y analista de las sociedades de su tiempo, y sus fragmentaciones y asimetrías no pasaron desapercibidas a su aguda mirada.

Saudi Arabia's Defeat in Yemen: The Stakes Could Not Be Higher

Saudi Arabia's Defeat in Yemen: The Stakes Could Not Be Higher | Global politics | Scoop.it
The most dangerous crisis in the world today is not the confrontation in the South China Sea, the war in Syria, the crisis in Ukraine or the North Korean nuclear test.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

And the Saudis want to invade Syria? Madness. Besides, is it so worrying that the Saudi regime goes down to hell? Good riddance!

Freaking out! Poor Ukrainians, as long as they tolerate this grotesque regime they'll be unable to leave Ukraine, because the EU isn't giving them any visa either.

Enrique Ferro's insight:

Heinsohn contends that these youth bulges can lead to extreme violence as the young men, needing to carve out a place for themselves in the world, often tend to resort to violence in order to survive. This is one of the many factors driving the Islamic State. The youth bulge means boom time for imperialism’s merchants of death, who are harnessing youthful anger and hatred for the fomentation of proxy wars against geopolitical enemies. Heinsohn predictedthat Europe would be overwhelmed with Southern Hemisphere youths by 2015.

JusticiA con A de Ascensión: a propósito de la exhumación de una fosa española a solicitud de una jueza de Argentina

JusticiA con A de Ascensión: a propósito de la exhumación de una fosa española a solicitud de una jueza de Argentina | Global politics | Scoop.it
El pasado sábado 30 de enero, los equipos forenses españoles encontraron los restos que requerían los familiares de Timoteo Mendieta Alcalá, ciudadano español fusilado en 1939 por las fuerzas franquistas aduciendo "auxilio a la rebelión" y enterrado con 22 cuerpos más (ver  nota  de Eldiario.es).
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Con estos hallazgos del último fin de semana del mes de enero del 2016, Timoteo Mendieta Alcalá se convierte en la primera víctima del franquismo en ser exhumada a solicitud de la justicia de Argentina ¿Cómo puede explicarse que la exhumación de una persona fusilada en 1939 en España (y cuyo cuerpo yace con otros en una fosa ubicada en territorio español) deba ser tramitada ante un juzgado en Buenos Aires? Es lo que se intentará brevemente aclarar en las líneas que siguen. - See more at: http://www.alainet.org/es/articulo/175262#sthash.88oe9jnp.dpuf

Lo que no se conoce sobre el que lidera la campaña de austeridad contra Grecia y España

Lo que no se conoce sobre el que lidera la campaña de austeridad contra Grecia y España | Global politics | Scoop.it
Cualquier lector que haya seguido de cerca las noticias sobre Grecia recordará que una figura clave de la imposición de las políticas de austeridad al pueblo griego, que han tenido un impacto devastador para aquel país, fue el Presidente del Eurogrupo, el Ministro de Finanzas de Holanda, el Sr. Jeroen Dijsselbloem, que lideró el ataque (y no hay otra manera de decirlo) a Grecia, forzándola a que aplicara las recetas neoliberales que han causado tanto daño, no solo a las clases populares griegas, sino a las de todos los países -incluyendo España- cuyos gobiernos han aplicado dichas recetas.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Lo que no se conoce –porque no se ha publicado en ninguno de los mayores medios de información- es quién es este señor. Dicho personaje ha jugado un papel clave en convertir Holanda en un paraíso fiscal en el que las mayores empresas europeas (incluyendo españolas) y norteamericanas evitan pagar sus impuestos en los países donde se realiza la producción, la distribución o el consumo de sus productos. La política impositiva de tal país está diseñada para atraer a compañías multinacionales que establecen su sede en Holanda. Las ventajas fiscales y subsidios públicos, así como su tratamiento sumamente favorable a las rentas del capital, son bien conocidos en el mundo financiero y empresarial. - See more at: http://www.alainet.org/es/articulo/175256#sthash.kwQ6XYmr.dpuf

Saudi Arabia: the Devil’s Playground

Saudi Arabia: the Devil’s Playground | Global politics | Scoop.it
Global markets continue on a roller-coaster ride two weeks after this column revealed how Saudi Arabia had been unloading at least $1 trillion in US securities, crashing global markets in parallel to its market share/oil price war.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

What's certainly advancing under the radar is something way more serious; a Russia/China-based alternative monetary system. That's why the Russian Central Bank is basically not interfering with the fall of the ruble parallel to the fall in oil prices.

Russia will need a lot of rubles for the Russia/China monetary system. So Moscow's strategy is to buy rubles back from the flooded market at rock-bottom prices, using artificially boosted dollars and euros. Russia's treasury, meanwhile, also bought Russian companies shares at low market prices while repatriating at least 30% of Russian oil shares previously owned by foreigners.

'We Expect A Military Escalation in Syria': Turkey’s True Motives

'We Expect A Military Escalation in Syria': Turkey’s True Motives | Global politics | Scoop.it
As Turkey shows increasing signs of invading Syria, Turkish journalist Erman Cete and Daniel McAdams of the Ron Paul Institute speak to Radio Sputnik’s Loud & Clear to discuss the meaning for relations between Russia and NATO.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Most likely such an adventure would end in a catastrophic defeat for Turkey, and NATO would wash its hands. The only way for Erdogan and the Saudi despots to invade Syria is along the US. But is the US ready to step across the border?

Why do nine foreign nations weigh in on the resignation of a minister in Ukraine? "The answer is simple."

Why do nine foreign nations weigh in on the resignation of a minister in Ukraine? "The answer is simple." | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Their perverse priorities explain why, in contrast with other countries of the former Soviet Union, the Ukrainian politicians have never managed to come up with a national identity that makes sense. Russophobia could possibly be a national cement for the Baltic States, but it's a suicide potion for a county of vast expanse like Ukraine, that precisely links Europe to Russia, and whose history, ethnicity, and language are inseparable from those of Russia.
