The developments of the last week in Afrin  ….  Sat.  Feb. 17, 2018

With the defeat of the IS in Syria and especially after the liberation of Raqqa in October 2017, the Turkish state intensified its threats and attacks against the Democratic Federation of the North of Syria In this context began the Turkish invasion and war against Afrin on January 20, 2018 violating international law and the sovereignty of its neighboring country.

The Turkish army has launched this war in cooperation with jihadist groups from the ranks of the FSA. Many of them are ex members of Al-Qaeda or EI.

(TURKEY HAS  354  LEOPARD TANKS MADE IN GERMANY AND   1690 US MADE TANKS…OVER 2000 IN TOTAL, PLUS A HUGE RANGE OF MODERN NATO EQUIPMENT AND AIR FORCE. IT HAS OVER 500,000 ACTIVE SOLDIERS AND 355,000 RESERVES. Afrin on the other hand has hardly any tanks, volunteer soldiers and no air force THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF AFRIN IS ONLY 200,000 [5]  PLUS ANOTHER 200,000 REFUGEES TAKEN IN FROM THE SYRIAN CIVIL WAR      source Wikipedia)

Guns To Phase Out Americans By 2050

   February 16, 2018 – SATIRE, BREAKING NEWS, WORLD NEWS

A DISTURBING REPORT issued by the International Centre For Research (ICFR) has estimated that guns are on course to phase out Americans by 2050, WWN has learned.

With the number of people suffering horrific and violent gun deaths in America exceeding 33,000 per year, it is believed when this harrowing statistic is combined with an unwavering commitment from politicians to do nothing, the result will be the total eradication of all 320 million Americans by 2050.

 “If current trends continue, the last two standing will go down in a blaze of depressing glory sometime late 2050,” explained head of the report Duncan Morrow.

The ICFR report makes for truly upsetting reading, and begs for immediate action to be taken in relation to a number of competing problems which can all be identified as contributing to America’s gun deaths problem. However, leading Republican politicians who have received the report could only confirm how quickly it burned when placed on an open fire.

“I’m here to reassure you, you may be scared after what happened recently, but America will always be a place that is safe for you,” President Donald Trump said in a press conference in which he talked directly to an assortment of worried firearms, in a bid to reassure all guns that no harm would come them in these troubling times.

Those desperately crying out for action in the wake of tragic death after tragic death after tragic death after tragic death have been incorrectly told it is normal that someone can legally buy an AR-15 rifle before they can purchase beer, and not to worry as other non-gun things kill more Americans every year and something should be done about that instead.

Others suffering insurmountable grief and pain after learning of yet more carnage facilitated by politicians paid by the NRA not to change laws have been told to reconvene in the usual places in public and online to voice their anger next time something like this happens again.

Asma Jahangir: saying Farewell to a Pakistani Feminist .. Who will Defend Us Now?

Pakistani civil society activists light candles to pay tribute to late human rights activist Asma Jahangir in Karachi on February 12, 2018.

by The funeral of Pakistan’s celebrated human rights defender Asma Jahangir was a poignant display of women’s resistance, writes Mehmood [Rabia Mehmood]

People don’t usually break societal barriers and disrupt the patriarchal order at funerals anywhere in the world, let alone in Pakistan. But on February 13, many women in Lahore, including myself, did just that by actively participating in a janaza, a Muslim funeral ritual, for the first time.

On that day, contrary to orthodox funeral traditions observed in Pakistan, we not only stood alongside men, we actually stood in front of them. Also, there were hardly any frowns directed at women who chose not to cover their heads. Continue reading Asma Jahangir: saying Farewell to a Pakistani Feminist .. Who will Defend Us Now?

Enric Duran, 5 years as an underground Activist! .. From Robbing Hood to Faircoin

Enric Duran Giralt (born 23 April 1976, in Vilanova i la Geltrú) also known as Robin Banks or the Robin Hood of the Banks is a Catalan anticapitalist activist[1] and a founding member of the Catalan Integral Cooperative (CIC – Cooperativa Integral Catalana) and Faircoop.[2][3][4][5][6]On September 17, 2008, he publicly announced that he had ‘robbed’ dozens of Spanish banks of nearly half a million euros as part of a political action to denounce what he termed the predatory capitalist system.

From 2006 to 2008, Duran took out 68 commercial and personal loans from a total of 39 banks with no guarantees or property as collateral. He had no intention of repaying the debts, and used the money to finance various anti-capitalist movements.[7]In 2008, Duran released both an online article entitled “I have “robbed” 492,000 euros from those who rob us the most, in order to denounce them and build alternatives for society” (translated), and an online video, each explaining what he had done and that he had left the country to view the reaction and consider his next move.

This was also published in the free magazine Crisis, in Catalan, of which 200,000 copies were printed and distributed by volunteers throughout Catalonia. A second newspaper, We can! Live Without Capitalism was distributed on March 17, 2009, and a third, We want! on September 17, 2009.[8][9]

Today, five years ago, Enric made it clear that he did not accept the authority of the “justice” of the System and when it was required by him, his response was not to appear at the Provincial Court of Barcelona. On February 12, 2013, many companies were attentive to the reaction of the corrupt states of the state, the bank, and the judiciary and police.
