“From the National Confederation of Labor, CNT we show our utmost grief, indignation, confusion and pain at the attack suffered this afternoon in Barcelona.
Once again it has been the people, the civilian population, the ordinary people, who have suffered the consequences of wars that are not theirs. Once again the people put back the suffering and the dead.
This time the location has changed, the place has changed. This time has been hit the heart of Barcelona. But again the objective has been the same: the civilian population unarmed and innocent.
Whether in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, London, Paris, Berlin, the Mediterranean or in the fences of Melilla, we return to becoming propitiatory victims, in collateral damages of a war between sides that we do not know, that does not repair media or Limits to reach their goals, who does not know the meaning of the word “love.” Gangs for whom power is above people and life. Gangs that do not represent us. Continue reading Solidarity with Barcelona victims: No God. No State, No Caliphate
‘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.
Next day we read of a massive cholera epidemic but no one makes the connection. The Yemeni genocide is an object lesson, with the proof open to any blogger in the internet, of the capitalist insanity whereby just a few days of arms spending could save the infinite suffering of poverty and lack of health services on the planet’… continues…HERE.. Depraved USA and UK green light Genocide of Millions for Profit in Yemen
Saudi-led siege, bombs and invasion bring famine and Cholera horror to Yemen
Massive Cholera Outbreak In Yemen There is a state of emergency in Yemen‘s capital after a recent outbreak of cholera.
By Niles Niemuth in the USA: According to the latest figures from the World Health Organization (WHO), more than 1,500 Yemenis have died in a deadly cholera epidemic which has infected some 250,000 people since April. Children account for a quarter of the deaths and half of all infections.
The deadly outbreak is the direct result of the criminal Saudi-led, US-backed war to reinstate the puppet government of President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, who was ousted in 2015 …
The Saudi-led assault on Yemen is a war crime of immense proportions, rivaling the US proxy war for regime change in Syria that has killed or displaced millions and the 2003 invasion and occupation of Iraq, which resulted in the deaths of more than a million people. Continue reading US-backed Bombing, Blockade and Invasion of starving Yemen sparks deadly Cholera
info from… Follow The Money Over the past two years, Qatar has conducted over $86 billion worth of transactions in Chinese Yuan and has signed other agreements with China that encourage further economic cooperation.
This is incredibly important because Qatar shares its major natural gas reserve with Iran, and Iran also conducts its oil-related business deals with China in Yuan. Iran signed deals with France’s Total, a multinational integrated oil and gas company, to develop this project.
If Iran and Qatar continue down this path, the U.S.’ self-asserted hegemony over the world’s financial markets will directly come under attack.
Until now the biggest losers are the 2 million immigrant workers who have been treated as slave labour, working in 40C degree heat, but any real war on the oil and gas fields could wreck the world economy.
Remember that Hillary Clinton’s leaked emails confirmed that the U.S. and France were so concerned with attacking Muammar Gaddafi (and destroying Libya to this day) not out of humanitarian concern, but rather, out of fear of his plan to unite Africa under a single gold-backed currency that would be used to buy and sell oil on the global markets, thus sabotaging their lucrative petrodollar monopoly
Remember that in 2000, Saddam Hussein announced he would sell Iraqi oil in euros, and the Guardian reported in 2003 that Iraq had actually netted a handsome profit in doing so — at least until the U.S. invaded not long after and immediately switched the sale of oil back to U.S. dollars. Continue reading Attacks on Qatar were okayed by US ‘for selling Gas in Yuan not US dollars’

The referendum in Turkey is to give the president Erdogan nearly total dictatorial powers. But can a Fascist Dictator really be Elected?
YES because in this case Erdogan has already seized dictatorial powers.. he’s supposed to be a generally symbolic president yet see below the endless list of atrocities he has ordered.
But is he a fascist? Well, he is the absolute power in the populist far right AKP party which advocates extermination of 18 million kurds and the creation of an Ottoman Empire.
Though he screams and bullies abroad he is at home a master manipulator, head of a criminal family and business mafia, adept at abusing nationalist, sexist and racial prejudices and feelings of resentment (even working class resentment against rich europeans) to whip up frenzied mob fervour and pursue witch-hunts against Kurds, leftists, feminists, Gulanists, minorities and anyone who dares to criticize him (or is a friend or family of any of the above).
Is this fascism.. in my definition YES. The referendum in this climate is a black joke, with every kind of pressure imaginable against No campaigners, with zero international observers coming, and with the most recent elections in Nov 2015 described as ‘stinking of mass fraud’.
