"The August 2011 Riots in Britain" : an analysis

25-08-2011 02:15

For a few days in August 2011, the riots in Britain's cities flashed a searing light across the troubled sleep to which we, the ordinary people of that country, have been reduced by three decades of spiritless submission to the logic of capitalism. The only meaningful questions to ask about the riots are: how far did they go in repudiating the society that dominates us, and how can that repudiation be extended and deepened?

The Libya media hoax: Fabricated scenes of jubilation & euphoria on Green Squa

23-08-2011 20:18

Fabricated scenes of jubilation and euphoria on Green Square, Tripoli, 22/08/11

Occupied Afghanistan: The attack on the British Council in Kabul

21-08-2011 15:09

The British Council in Kabul, 19 August 2011

The attack on the British Council in Kabul on 19th August, resulting in twelve deaths and many injuries, further underlined how unwelcome the occupiers are, in a country in which they should never have been in the first place. Further tragedies, heaped on tragedies, also illustrated how out of touch those both on the ground in country - and those in high places abroad are. The day of the attack was both the Sabbath (Friday) and national holiday marking the 92nd anniversary of Afghanistan's independence from Britain in 1919 and of course, the 19th: 19 -1919.
