On the Gaza Conflict

09-01-2009 09:42

Israel’s claims of self-defense are clearly refuted by the disproportionate consequences of its aggression. With the death toll rising to 599, including 133 children, 33 women, and 6 medics, Israel can no longer hide the fact that its actions are tantamount to genocide, as Richard Falk, the United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian Territories, has pointed out.

Candlelit vigil (Southampton) gratuitious ...write your own comment also please.

arabic - Gaza - candle vigil in Southampton
People came from far and near came, to hold their candles and share the cold and the sadness for others further away where electricity, water. food and ordinary daily needs are not being met because of savage oppression, killing, maimings and bombing.

Hanthala turned up, I reflect he was saddened and if you could have seen his face there were tears of blood - yet he held a bright candle with us - he holds a candle even now whilst many of us sleep he holds it high - hope happens in community never alone, alone we despair.

Systemic aspects of academic repression in the New World Order

08-01-2009 13:24

It is generally acknowledged today that every single individual freedom, including of course academic freedom, has been effectively undermined, both on account of the systemic limitations imposed by the form of the system of market economy developed in neoliberal globalisation, and on account of the corresponding limitations imposed by the semi-totalitarian transformation of representative “democracy” in the aftermath of the 9/11 events. (…) unless universities are directly controlled by society itself (which, alone, could express the general interest) and the academic community, i.e., teachers and students, no real academic freedom is possible. (…) A democratic paideia, therefore, presupposes a struggle for radical change not just in the educational structures but also in the socio-economic structures, (…) there is little (if any) relation between market needs and human needs in the market economy system, in which what determines “market needs” is crucially conditioned by privileged social groups, through the concentration of income, wealth and economic power at their hands. It is therefore only within the context of an inclusive democracy, which institutionalises an equal distribution of political and economic power among all citizens that one could meaningfully talk about academic freedom.

Palestine: 60 years of ethnic cleansing and dispossession

07-01-2009 15:36

(Better version). Largely consisting of an article written in 1999 entitled ‘Palestine: fifty years of ethnic cleansing and dispossession’, an historical overview of the conflict in Palestine since 1947, by Dr. Ismail Zayid. Israel’s ‘defensive measures’ justified by those who talk on behalf of Israel and accepted as given by the media consistently fails to recognise that these militants fire weapons into territory which they believe belongs to them and which they view is occupied by Israeli settlers.

U.S. Backed Invasion by Israel: Stop the Israeli Massacre in Gaza!

06-01-2009 22:19

Shortly after darkness fell on Saturday night, January 3, Israel launched a massive land invasion of Gaza involving 9,000-10,000 soldiers, tanks, helicopters, and heavy artillery, engineering and intelligence forces, with the support of Israel’s Air Force, navy, and secret police and spy agencies. The ground invasion came after Israel, for the first time, unleashed an artillery barrage on Gaza, striking a mosque and killing at least 11 people. By the next day, Israeli forces had reportedly cut Gaza in half, “bisecting” it between north and south.

National Gaza demo in pictures.

Big march leaves embankment.
Today those peace loving Israelis announced that they were still doing everything possible to minimise civilian casualties. They also manages to shell a school built by the UN and kill three of there own troops in a friendly fire incident. Clearly taking great care to hit the right targets?

Saturdays demo was very loud and angry. The Police, following their usual government agenda, said that a mere 10,000 were in attendance. Meanwhile the Stop the War Coalition doubled the figures to 50,000. Both faction should be congratulated for their consistency if nothing else.

After the demo a march heading for the embassy was stopped by Police in an underpass while several thousand others made their way there by tube.
