03-08-2006 18:56La Sicilia è diventata negli ultimi anni la frontiera Sud dell’Europa e Lampedusa è il suo avamposto. Il tentativo di mascherare l’inarrestabile fenomeno politico-sociale delle migrazioni come un problema di ordine pubblico da contrastare, con la crescente militarizzazione delle frontiere e provvedimenti di polizia, ha prodotto soltanto l’istituzione di nuove forme di apartheid.
03-08-2006 17:25On july 8, 2005 while the G8 was meeting in Scotland a demonstration was held in San Francisco. Now one defendant is to go on trial while another sits in jail for refusing to turn over video footage.
03-08-2006 16:00Drastic and tragic Climate Change is well underway, and will worsen unto Doomsday if we do not take drastic measures to stop its progress. Energy conservation is at best stopgap. The development of Green (clean, renewable, cheap) energy sources is indispensable. This has never been a particularly difficult technical problem.

Hizballah, the Lebanese Shi‘i movement whose militia is fighting the Israeli army in south Lebanon, has been cast misleadingly in much media coverage of the ongoing war. Much more than a militia, the movement is also a political party that is a powerful actor in Lebanese politics and a provider of important social services. Not a creature of Iranian and Syrian sponsorship, Hizballah arose to battle Israel’s occupation of south Lebanon from 1982-2000 and, more broadly, to advocate for Lebanon’s historically disenfranchised Shi‘i Muslim community. While it has many political opponents in Lebanon, Hizballah is very much of Lebanon -- a fact that Israel’s military campaign is highlighting.
