”This was about standing up for humanity. People lose their lives there daily. We see incidences of small children being jailed by Israeli soldiers. Land is stolen, homes are stolen and people are basically living in a prison. If this happened in any other country in the world there would be an outcry. It’s not a war, it’s apartheid and it’s barbaric”.

A pesar de su compromiso con causas progresistas ahora sale que Ferrovial está metido en el cruel negocio de gestionar la detención indefinida de personas ‘secuestradas’ en alta mar y que soliciten asilo en Australia.
Hay documentados 300 casos de niños que cometen o amenazan la autolesión, 67 casos de abuso infantil, 33 casos de violación o asalto sexual de los solicitantes de asilo, 200 casos de asalto y 30 casos de abuso contra el personal de Australia – y eso es sólo en Nauru.
The editor of the feminist news agency Ajansı Jin Haber, Zehra Dogan, and Mazlum Dogan, deputy adviser in Mardin for Democratic Peoples Party (HDP) Ali Atalan were arrested two days ago in Mardin. They were sitting in a cafe in that city of Turkish Kurdistan. Zehra and Mazlum were sent to Nusaybin…
Greetings on March 8 Womens day led them to prison
Meanwhile, Mazlum Dogan has been accused of attending activities with the Deputy Ali Atalan. Police criminalize his actions in the media around March 8th when he read the following textual statement:”Happy International Women’s Day happy all working women and women from insurgents Clara Rosa, Sakine Seve. Jin Jiyan Azadi” (Women, Life, Freedom). Such words, in the Kurdish language, are regarded as a crime.

Llega a España el primer cargamento de gas de fracking USA
El 22 de Julio llegó al puerto de Ferrol el primer cargamento de gas de fracking procedente de EEUU. Según denuncian Ecologistas en Acción, Amigos de la Tierra y otras organizaciones, la llegada del metanero Sestao Knutsen, impedirá a buen seguro el cumplimiento de los ya exiguos e insuficientes objetivos climáticos europeos. Las próximas entregas serán a Barcelona y Sagunto (Valencia).
‘Ni aquí Ni en ninguna parte’ es el lema del movimiento anti-fracking, y genera rechazo el engaño de la importación de gas del fracking de EEUU, especialmente ante las noticias que resulta mucho más dañino que el carbón.
Los últimos estudios de Harvard dan pruebas que ‘La Revolución del Fracking es letal para el clima debido a las fugas incontrolables de metano y que ha hecho a perder todas las supuestas reducciones de emisiones en EEUU desde 2009.
UPDATE::LATE NEWS:: The first ship carrying EEUU frack gas to Spain arrived on 22nd July in Ferrol, Galicia. Activists and Ecological groups protested bitterly and accused the company of illegal handling and storage.
The first shipment of US frack-gas (‘shale gas’) has arrived in Portugal, followed by 6 more to Europe. The US plans hundreds of shipments, taking up to 20% of the euro gas market from their Russian rivals. With state help the enterprises have been busy strong arming and bribing EU companies into contracts, (eg. Galp (Portugal), Royal Dutch Shell and the Spanish Gas Natural. with the Rajoy govt only too eager to help).
A juicy business perhaps, aided by the usual US financial and military tools that have got the South Stream pipeline from Russia cancelled, have lined up countries and the EU against the German Nord Stream 2 pipeline, and have quietly forbidden their Ukraine ‘debt cow’ state from doing essential maintenance on their Russian pipeline, which still provides 16% of Europe’s gas.
All set then. A famous victory for the US billionaires and their power crazed political sponsors, who haven’t hesitated to buy out environmental law, poison aquifers and cause a health and ecological emergency in order to frack oil and gas from thousands of short term wells.
But just a minute. There’s a problem. .. One of the blatant scams of the frackers was to make it unnecessary to even measure methane leaks, and studies done were often bought out or dismissed as only local..
‘Turkey has blocked access to the WikiLeaks website, the telecoms watchdog has said, after nearly 300,000 emails from president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s ruling Justice and Development party (AKP) were put online as Ankara grapples with the aftermath of a failed military coup.
The emails date from 2010 to 6 July this year. Obtained before the attempted coup, the date of their publication was brought forward “in response to the government’s post-coup purges”, WikiLeaks said on its website, adding that the source of the emails was not connected to the coup plotters or to a rival political party or state.
Rojava is the start. There is lots to do. We need skilled and revolutionary people who are motivated. We need specialists of all kinds.
Rojava is a New Revolutionary Confederation
Rojava is an autonomous region in north Syria. The region gained its autonomy in the summer of 2012 in the process of the Syrian uprising, establishing a society based on principles of direct democracy, gender equity, and sustainability. Rojava consists of the three cantons called Jazira, Kobani and Afrin.
The Coopfunding campaign raised 98K euros, now closed, (14 July16), but the contribute page lists various ways people for people to participate and help this cause. Also right now volunteers can`t get into as the siege is total.
What’s The Plan?
In 1 year, we are going to implement these projects. Bringing the latest decentralized solutions to Rojava.
