Attac - Mon, 09/09/2019 - 08:21
Hongkong har de siste tre månedene vært preget av omfattende og til tider voldelige demonstrasjoner. Selv om Hongkongs leder nylig besluttet å trekke tilbake utleveringslovforslaget som startet demonstrasjonene, ser det ikke ut til at demonstrasjonene vil avta med det første, og regionen er fortsatt preget av uro og usikkerhet.

Det er en vanlig

Comments - Fri, 09/06/2019 - 12:17

Det er en vanlig misforståelse. Kanslere ble ikke valgt - de ble utpekt av presidenten som beskrevet over. Det var helt i tråd med det konstitusjonelle regelverket, men det er noe annet enn å være valgt.

I dette tempoet vil det ta 200 år å få slutt på global fattigdom

Attac - Mon, 09/02/2019 - 10:13
Under debatten om global fattigdom som brøt fram tidligere i år, var det ett argument som gjentok seg: selv om inntektene til den fattige verdensbefolkningen ikke har økt i stor nok grad til å løfte dem ut av fattigdom, har inntektene i det minste vært økende. Dette argumentet har blitt en viktig hjørnestein for de som ønsker å forsvare neoliberal globalisering.

Rami Khouri: The U.S. Is Erasing "The Palestinian National Reality from Our World"

Democracy Now - Fri, 08/30/2019 - 13:00
Rami Khouri, senior public policy fellow, professor and columnist at The New Arab, says that much of the instability in the Middle East stems from the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. We spoke with Khouri, who is currently a journalist-in-residence at the American University of Beirut, about how the U.S. is exacerbating tensions in the region. The U.S. is trying to erase the “Palestinian national reality,” he says. “There’s about 12 million Palestinians in the world. And they have an identity. They have rights. … And the United States is basically telling the Palestinians, 'You don't exist. You don’t have rights. The Israelis have rights in Israel and Palestine. Their rights are superior to yours.’”
