Program Information - This Week In Palestine: An interview with longtime activist Nancy Murray|A-Infos Radio Project | Occupy NSA | Scoop.it
“ The A-Infos Radio Project: Broadcast Quality Programming via the Internet (.@IFPBdelegations leader Nancy Murray interviewed on #Palestine http://t.co/He3mQXD2CB)...”
Anonymous's insight:
Summary: In this episode: (1) Commemoration of the life of pioneering Palestinian Gazan psychiatrist Eyad El-Sarraj; (2) The feverish pace of Israeli incursion: an extraordinary interview with Nancy Murray upon return from her 23rd journey to Palestine. We get a frightening picture of what's going on right now in Palestine. The Israeli ideologues have been allowed to run free, with the all too obvious intent to capture every meaningful square inch of Palestine, "cleansing" the landscape by dispossessing native Palestinians. All this with major financial help from, and the abject approval of, the United States Government. Nancy Murray is author of "Palestinians: Life Under Occupation" (1991) and many related articles right up to the present. In 2001, she co-founded the Gaza Mental Health Foundation (www.gazamentalhealth.org) in Boston to raise funds for mental health work in the Gaza Strip.

This mechanism could threaten almost any means by which governments might seek to defend their citizens or protect the natural world. Already it is being used by mining companies to sue governments trying to keep them out of protected areas(2,3); by banks fighting financial regulation(4); by a nuclear company contesting Germany’s decision to switch off atomic power(5). After a big political fight we’ve now been promised plain packaging for cigarettes. But it could be nixed by an offshore arbitration panel. The tobacco company Philip Morris is currently suing Australia through the same mechanism in another treaty(6).

Some Things Got Better - How much Got Good? A short review of 12 years of international intervention in Afghanistan | Afghanistan Analysts Network

Some Things Got Better - How much Got Good? A short review of 12 years of international intervention in Afghanistan | Afghanistan Analysts Network | Occupy NSA | Scoop.it
“2013 marked the year in which the international community started to wrap up many of the initiatives to re-build Afghanistan – arguably the biggest international effort since the post-Word-War-II Marshal Plan.”
Anonymous's insight:
The insurgency movement itself is more symptom than cause of Afghanistan’s internal conflicts. Afghanistan's state institutions continue to be weak. After the massive electoral fraud of 2009 and 2010, President Hamed Karzai, his government and the parliament have legitimacy deficits. The balance of power between the executive, legislative and judicial branches does not work. The executive – with the opaque structures at the ‘palace’ and a small group of so-called jihadi leaders-cum-ulema at its core – dominates and manipulates the other two. Parliament is fragmented, easily manipulated and weak as a result of the de facto, though not de jure, ban on political-party-based self-organisation. The judiciary is the most corrupt of the state institutions. As a result, the rule of law is weak. The powerful can put themselves above the law with impunity. Governance is conducted and positions are distributed through patronage, not on the basis of merit; or positions are simply sold, resulting in an ineffective government. The judiciary often only serves exclusive circles and victimises those excluded. Effectiveness decreases from the central to the provincial and district levels, with the latter lacking elected councils.

Opick holds charity concert for Palestine in Aceh - ANTARA | Occupy NSA | Scoop.it
“ ANTARA Opick holds charity concert for Palestine in Aceh ANTARA Banda Aceh, Aceh Darussalam (ANTARA News) - Aunur Rofiq Lil Firdaus (Opick), Indonesian singer and writer of Islamic songs, held a charity concert for Palestine here on Sunday.”
Anonymous's insight:
"Palestinian people needs help from all over the world including from Aceh," he told thousands of his audience. Opick sang a number of religious songs, and between the songs he explained about the suffering of Palestinian people. The organizing committee collected at least Rp900 million and some goods from the concert. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has called on Indonesia to increase its contribution as the agency is facing a funding shortfall of US$37 million until the end of the year, an UNRWA spokesperson has said.
