We are witnessing an astonishing new level of human depravity in which the US sells $110,000,000,000 worth of arms to the terrorist Saudi state while actively aiding it in bombing and starving it’s neighbours to death.
President Trump mouthes platitudes of ”alternative truth” in the middle east and is applauded by Western media, the sunni States and even the UN in a veritable cacaphony of hubris and damned lies.
Next day we read of a massive cholera epidemic but no one makes the connection. The coming Yemeni genocide is an object lesson, with the proof open to any blogger in the internet, of the capitalist insanity whereby just one day of arms spending could save the infinite suffering of poverty and lack of health services on the planet.
One big ubiquitous lie is that President Hadi is legitimate president of Yemen. He lives in Saudi Arabia, he was appointed by Saudi and the US with no other candidate as a 2 year interim president. .. then he REFUSED TO STEP DOWN or implement any of the agreed power sharing reforms, and continues rejecting the latest UN peace plan solely to retain illegitimate personal power.Continue reading Depraved USA and UK green light Genocide of Millions for Profit in Yemen→
shared from Insurrection News On 24 and 25 May, most of the world’s most powerful leaders will meet to discuss war and arming at the NATO summit. Today, NATO has become the weaponized arm of defending the interests of Western capitalism throughout the world and not a factor of security for Europe as we were sold in the context of Cold War.
We call on all the ungovernable in Europe and elsewhere to join the antimilitarist and anti-capitalist bloc from 5 pm at the Gare du Nord. The next day, at the NATO summit, a “blockage” to disrupt as much as possible the rendezvous of the great powers is also being organized by some associations.
To finance death and suffering, capitalist nations are leading at least two other wars on the rest of the world. A social war is waged within each frontier to make the poorest pay for both the whips that keep them in the rank of exploited but also the massacres of the populations and looting of resources of the countries they call under- developed, constituting a second devastating external economic war.

RAHILA GUPTA shared with thanks Could this little-known system provide a way forward for real democracy – from the bottom up – in our failing neoliberal political systems?
Every time I speak at public meetings in Britain about the gender equality and direct democracy experiment being carried out in Rojava, Northern Syria, I am invariably asked by an inspired audience what we can learn from there – and how can we implement it here.Yekîneyên Jinên in Azad Star (Star-YJA) has communicated the death of the commanders of their militia Nalin Dipo and Helin Murat, from the Free Womens Unit -Ishtar killed by Turkish bombing of Kurdistan in Iraq between 26 and 28 April 2017
Given the growing consensus in the west about the importance of equal pay and equal representation of the sexes at all levels of employment, one of the basic tenets of the Rojava revolution, co-presidentship – where every institution is headed up by a man and a woman – should not be too much of a hard sell.
Rojava Revolution Plan: Organising and Funding Projects and Volunteers
Yet even co-presidentship cannot be easily replicated within a system like ours which, driven by profit rather that values, might simply discard the idea as untenable on the grounds of cost and over-staffing. After all, the state is being rolled back everywhere; NGOs are scrabbling for cash; and jobshares are simply not the same thing.

Heavily armed officers from the General Investigations and Special Operations Division of Italy (Digos) broke down the front door and invaded the Asilo Occupato (occupied asylum) building in Turin on Wednesday, arresting six activists.
Occupants of the anarchist-run space, located on Via Allesandria, in the neighbourhood of Aurora, resisted for several hours on the roof of the property before the raid. Carabinieri (Italian militarised police) also participated in the repressive operation.
Among the detainees are four Italians (Fabiola De Costanzo,Antonio Pittalis, Antonio Rizzo, and Giada Volpacchio), a Frenchwoman (Camille Casteran) and a Spaniard (Francisco Javier Esteban Tosina), who were detained as a “precautionary measure.”
Your Taxes Subsidize Dirty Oil Corporations By $5.3 TRILLION
Source via trueactivist.com A recent paper released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) should shock all of us who believe in a green future based on renewable energy.
Despite stark warnings from scientists, fossil fuel subsidies continue to grow: this year alone, it is estimated that dirty coal and energy corporations will receive a staggering $5.3 trillion from governments worldwide.
To put this into perspective, the sum is more than the healthcare budget of all the countries in the world combined. It works out at $600 million per hour, $10 million per minute, and $200,000 per second. Just imagine what we could do with that kind of money.
Elected by a minority the UK Tory party revel in robbing, squeezing and in this case killing the population to benefit the established ruling class. The UK is a toxic blend of institutions, parties, schools, law, work, prisons, property, police, family, etc. which mould our minds and have always blocked all chance of revolution.. ……but OUR TIME WILL COME
http://www.ox.ac.uk/Researchers (published by the Royal Society of Medicine) exploring why there has been a substantial increase in mortality in England and Wales in 2015 conclude that failures in the health and social care system linked to disinvestment are likely to be the main cause.
There were 30,000 excess deaths in 2015, representing the largest increase in deaths in the post-war period. The excess deaths, which included a large spike in January that year, were largely in the older population who are most dependent on health and social care.
