Gaza: A Concentration Camp of 1.5 Million People | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

Gaza: A Concentration Camp of 1.5 Million People | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Israeli forces attacked 18 targets in the Gaza Strip belonging to Hamas, which controls the besieged enclave, in the second such action over the weekend.

The strikes followed an explosion during a demonstration of Palestinians on the southern border with Israel Saturday that injured four Israeli soldiers. The Israeli military shot and killed two Palestinian teenagers in response. It was the worst such border incident since Israel’s war against Gaza in 2014 and portends a broader offensive.

None of the militant groups in Gaza has claimed responsibility for the explosion. Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman accused the Popular Resistance Committees, one of the smaller armed groups in Gaza, of detonating the bomb. Nevertheless, as always Israel holds Hamas, the Islamist national bourgeois party that controls Gaza, responsible for the attack.

For months, there have been almost weekly demonstrations against Israel’s blockade of Gaza and the deteriorating economic conditions. Last December, tensions rose after US President Donald Trump recognised Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Earlier this year, Gaza’s traders closed in protest over the deteriorating situation.

Martin Luther King: The Struggle for a Living Wage and the End to War | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

Martin Luther King: The Struggle for a Living Wage and the End to War | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization | digital divide information | Scoop.it
April 4, 2017 marked the 49th anniversary since the martyrdom of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the 20th century’s most outstanding proponent of Civil Rights and Peace to emerge in the United States.

This year the cause of low-wage workers took center stage as fast food, senior homes and child care employees demonstrated across the country demanding a $15 an hour minimum wage.

In Detroit, hundreds of these workers marched into the Michigan State Office Bldg. in Cadillac Place calling for Republican Governor Rick Snyder to support a hike in the minimum wage to $15. After being confronted by the State police the crowd of most youthful workers moved outside for a rally.

These actions are largely supported by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), one of the fastest growing labor organizations in the country. Over the last several years, SEIU has taken up the demand by these workers for a living wage.

Although the last two monthly reports from the Bureau of Labor Statistics claim that in excess of 200,000 jobs have
been created, what is not being said is in what sectors and how much are these workers being paid. Poverty is increasing overall in the U.S. A majority of people feel as if they are sinking more into economic uncertainty. Moreover, the Labor Participation Rate is the still hovering around 62 percent of the overall workforce.
