Genocide Unfolding in Palestine

By Craig Murray Global Research, Tonight has been the most violent bombardment of Gaza so far, notably concentrated on precisely the areas into which Israel ordered the population to evacuate. I find it almost impossible to believe that this genocide is under way with the active support of almost all western governments. I want to look at two questions – what will happen internationally, and what is happening in western societies. Israel plainly is on the course of further escalation and intends to kill many thousands more Palestinians. More than 2,000 Palestinian children alone have now been killed by Israeli aerial attack in the last fortnight. Gaza has no defence from bombs and missiles, and there is no military reason why Israel cannot keep this up for months ...

Nicaragua, climate crisis and capitalism

In a recent webinar addressed by Ambassador Valdrack Jaentschke, who led the Nicaragua government delegation to the 2023 United Nations climate change conference in Dubai, more commonly known as Cop28, the ambassador explained how Nicaragua is combating climate change, both at home through its renewable energy and other programmes, and in the international arena through cooperation and by the power of its example in implementing policies that demonstrate a real concern for the earth (in contrast to imperialist greenwashing). He began by recalling the Paris climate conference of 2015. While Nicaragua upheld the position that the capitalist economic system is at the root of our environmental problems at that meeting, the majority of participants and all the meeting’s outcomes sim...

How unjust and cruel US sanctions impact on Cuba’s health provision

By Aymee Díaz Negrín – Presentation to the annual Latin American Conference held in London on 27 January 2024 I think when we talk about the US blockade against Cuba, many times we think only about the illegal and unilateral sanctions against a country or a government with a political system completely different from the US, but the blockade is not only against the Cuban government. It has a devastating impact on the Cuban population, especially in the education and health sectors, despite the Cuban government’s huge efforts to provide high quality medical services. Just to give you an idea about the impact of the US policy: between March 2022 and February 2023 the blockade cost the Cuban health sector almost 240 million dollars. I am going to mention some examples to bet...

Nicaragua joins South Africa at the ICJ in support of Palestine

The way that different countries have responded to the ongoing genocide in Gaza says everything about which interests their governments really represent. Proletarian writers Subscribe to our  channel The anti-imperialist solidarity between the revolutionaries and national-liberation movements of Nicaragua and Palestine is not new, but it is testament to the principled leadership of the Sandinistas that Nicaragua is willing to put itself forward against zionism on the world stage, knowing full well that this will bring the opprobrium of international finance capital down on its head. While Yemen has been the first state actor to deliver full practical solidarity with the Palestinian struggle, and South Africa was the first to have recourse to international l...

Lula, el genocidio de Israel y el racismo en los medios corporativos brasileños

Para los medios corporativos y la clase política brasileña, incluso las elecciones municipales tienen un peso moral mayor que el exterminio de una población by Gabriel Rocha Gaspar Lula en la Cumbre de la Unión Africana en Addis Abeba, Etiopía, donde fue noticia con sus comentarios sobre el genocidio en Gaza (Foto: Ricardo Stuckert) Read in English here “La tradición diplomática brasileña se basa en la resolución de problemas. El ‘incidente’ con Israel va en la dirección opuesta y afecta no sólo a la imagen de nuestro país, sino también al curso de los temas que realmente importan a la población en un año electoral”. Con estas palabras, el presentador del talk show más conocido de Brasil, Roda Viva, cerró la edición del pasado lunes, que tuvo como invit...

Milei launches massive attack on press freedom and shuts down national news agency Télam

The news agency building woke up with its building fenced off and with its website under “reconstruction.” The workers are mobilizing in responseMarch 04, 2024 by ARG Medios Télam workers at a protest. "Defending public media is defending national sovereignty". On the morning of March 4, the website of the national news agency, Télam, was shut down and inaccessible to workers with a notice that indicated “page under reconstruction.” The offices of Télam were also fenced off and with a security operation to ensure that no one is able to enter.

In the speech Milei gave last Friday, he assured ...

“In the face of war and violence, let us defend peace!” declare Latin American and Caribbean leaders

The Community of Latin American and Caribbean States held their 8th Summit, stressing peace and dialogue in a world threatened by US domination. By Benjamin Zinevich The Community of Latin American and Caribbean States, or CELAC, met in the city of Kingstown, the capital of Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, for its 8th Summit on March 1. The discussion largely focused on the need for peace and security in both the hemisphere as well as the globe. Seen by some as an alternative to the US creation of the Organization of American states, there was no representative from Washington present in Kingstown. However, in attendance was the Special Representative of the Chinese Government in Latin American Affairs Qiu Xiaoqi, upon invitation by CELAC. In his opening remarks...

Cuban health workers vow to face down the genocidal US blockade

Solidarity aims must move on from the charitable aid mentality and work for the destruction of the imperialist system. Much is presented in Western corporate media regarding the parlous state of Cuba – its economy, food shortages, the flow of skilled, especially young workers overseas, shortages of every conceivable commodity – fuel, cement, medicines, educational materials etc. – that is essential to the building of a civilised life.  Little is said of the cause of this economic genocide. The cause is simply the illegal, criminal and ongoing US embargo, which for over 65 years has attempted to suffocate socialism, independence and national aspirations in Cuba.  The economics of genocide is exactly what the USA applies to Cuba. There may not be overt military interven...
