by wikipedia...  Since its founding last year dozens of rebel militias of all ethnic and religious hues have flocked to join the SDF (see long list and details below), as they can retain their identities and participate equally, embracing the new ideology of ‘Democratic Confederalism’ of the Rojava revolution. By May 2016 the SDF had up to 80,000 fighters and the percentage of Kurds was only about  60% and falling  (wikipedia). Continue reading Rojava Revolution gets support: Mass Desertions to join SDF

Washington Tries to Break BRICS – Rape of Brazil Begins

by F. William Engdahl, from New Eastern Outlook shared with thanks!

As millions campaign against the Capitalist Coup and Army intervention looms, the black bloc tactic, orn at least wearing a mask, is becoming accepted and generalised

It’s important to keep in mind that elected President Rousseff was not convicted or even formally charged with any concrete act of corruption, even though the pro-oligarchy mainstream Brazil media, led by O’Globo Group of the billionaire Roberto Irineu Marinho, ran a media defamation campaign creating the basis to railroad Rousseff into formal impeachment before the Senate.protesta2

The shift took place after the opposition PMDB party of Temer on March 29 broke their coalition with Rousseff’s Workers’ Party, as accusations of Petrobras-linked corruption were made against Rousseff and former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.

Mexico Jails student Luis for 33 yrs for Ayotzinapa solidarity Demo


As the anniversary of the ‘disappearance’ of teachers  approached, the State jailed our compañero Luis for 33 years for ‘damaging property’ at the Third Global Day for Ayotzinapa Protest, two years ago.

Accused of burning a bus Luis has been victimised and demonised in yet another atrocity by the ”terrorist” State. This is not exaggeration, the State really has condoned mass murders and disappearances and everyday torture of prisoners and opponents, as verified by UN and Human Rights reports.

In fact the original Ayotzinapa ‘disappearance’ of progressive socialist teachers was just the culmination of a State-condoned terrorist campaign against them.luis-fernando-banner-free-march

Everyone has always known who is  responsible, the ‘deep state’, the oligarchy of white rulers and landowners, allied with the drug mafia, with their money in Miami, and  backed as always by the USA, are continuing their immoral nazi tactics.

Sign “Stop Turkeys invasion in Rojava/Syria – Stop Turkeys war on Kurds”


Support Rojava: Open Letter Signed by all below

”We, intellectuals, writers, artists, politicians and human rights defenders, seek to draw urgent attention to the Turkish state’s invasion in Northern Syria and Rojava.

The Turkish army invaded the Northern Syrian City of Jarablus on 24 August 2016, using anti-ISIS  operations as a pretext. The operation was in collaboration with the Syrian arm of El-Qaida (Jabhat Fatah al-Sham) and groups like Ahrar El-Sham.

ISIS handed over the city, Jarablus, without a single bullet being fired. This is a clear indication that there was a prior agreement between the parties that Jarablus would remain as a base for Salafi
groups. Therefore, Jarablus will remain as a corridor for foreign fighters to cross into Syria to receive training and then to cross back over in order to be distributed throughout Europe and the rest of the world.

Sign the Petition

From the third day of the operation (26 August 2016) onwards the attacks have been directed at Kurdish Forces, the Jarablus Military Council and the Minbij Military Council. Northern Syria has
been largely cleansed of ISIS by these forces with the support of the international coalition lead by theUS. By attacking these forces, Turkey is both interrupting the fight against ISIS and strengthening ISIS.

Tayip Erdogan and other Turkish authorities officially announced the purpose of the operation, at the outset, as the targeting of Kurdish forces alongside ISIS. Turkish army has engaged in airstrikes and shelling of civilian areas, killing at least 45 in two villages south of Jarablus.

Spain’s Catalonia region has launched the country’s first public DNA profiling project in a bid to identify some of the 114,000 people who disappeared during the nation’s civil war and subsequent dictatorship.

The issue is hugely sensitive in Spain, where rights abuses during the 1936-1939 conflict and the ensuing 36-year rule of dictator Francisco Franco remain uninvestigated for fear of reviving divisions.

Raul Romeva, who handles transparency matters in Catalonia’s regional government, described the initiative as “a decisive step towards restoring” historical memory. Continue reading Catalonia: DNA tests to identify Spain’s civil war dead

Unpaid Saudi Guest Workers Starving as Bosses keep Billions Owed


The exploitation of migrant workers is turning into a full-fledged humanitarian crisis.

Dawlat Khan has worked as a health and safety officer for the construction firm Saudi Oger in Saudi Arabia for nearly eight years, but his experience took a turn for the worse 8 months ago when his monthly salary of US $2000 abruptly stopped.

According to The Middle East Eye (MEE) Khan is only one of some 50,000 Saudi Oger employees who have not been paid since last summer. The kingdom’s largest private company reportedly owes employees US $800 million in back pay.

Living in a work camp where rent is US $133 per month, Khan has to rely on friends for food and accommodation costs. Most crucially, like many migrant workers in the country, Khan’s family is reliant on his earnings in the kingdom.57427fd544f64


Unable to send remittances home for the past 8 months, Khan says his family is suffering, with his wife having been forced to sell all her jewelry in order to send their eldest son to university this year. Continue reading Unpaid Saudi Guest Workers Starving as Bosses keep Billions Owed

US betrays allies as Turkey vows to Destroy inspiring Rojava Revolution.

Late news, The Kurds and allies, the SDF/YPG have retreated south of the river Sajur to make a defensive line against Turkey attacking the liberated from ISIS city of Manbij. Manbij, like all towns in the Rojava revolution, is run democratically and with sex equality by a Council composed proportionally of all the local forces (not by the SDF/YPG).

This is what Turkish tanks and jets are aiming to destroy and replace with the medieval mockery of Islam of their ISIS and allied militias. The SDF/YPG have no tanks or air force and have been betrayed by their US allies so can not now continue the offensive against ISIS in Al Bab or towards Raqqa..

29th Aug 16. a new colour, Turkey is on the map, although their forces could be hit by Regime jets in just 5 minutes- according to the Kurds, signalling complicity in the anti/Kurd invasion.
29th Aug 16. a new colour, Turkey, is on the map, although their forces could be hit by Regime jets in just 5 minutes, according to the Kurds, signalling complicity in the anti SDF and YPG invasion to in effect protect an ISIS corridor, further west, (see map) and  the ‘$30 milllion a day’ oil and supply trade which Erdogan’s own family is involved in. .

As predicted   here the Turkish anti ISIS invasion of Syria is an excuse to continue their genocidal murder torture, repression and enslavement of Kurds and all things Kurdish.

azadiya-welat-gozalti-dagitim-1Back in Turkey the police have closed down the only Kurdish Language Newspaper (for about 18 million Kurds) The paper was already compelled to adopt a strict pro-government line, the assault on the headquarters ‘Azadiya Welat’ by agents of Erdogan has clearly political intentions.

The entire staff of 27 people were arrested and their fate is unknown.

It was the only newspaper in the Kurdish language in the whole of Turkey and follows a long line of repression against the Kurdish minority .

We recall that one month and three days ago the Turkish conservative Islamist government also arrested Zeynel Abidin Bulut, editor of the same publication.

Erdogan is at present negotiating visa free entry in the EU and threatening repeatedly to ‘unleash millions of refugees’ on Europe unless his visa and other demands are met.

Following the military coup of 1980, the Kurdish language was officially prohibited in public and private life.[Wikipedia11] Many people who spoke, published, or sang in Kurdish were arrested and imprisoned… Continue reading US betrays allies as Turkey vows to Destroy inspiring Rojava Revolution.
