During the recent demonstrations in Baltimore, using the word “thug” to describe the window smashers, looters and rock throwers has drawn controversy. In The Chronicle, you printed a column by Spencer Whitney, who points out that the term is inherently racist. I agree. Yet we need a word for those who erupt in violence against property and people, namely cops.
We progressives have seen our peaceful protests wrecked by these brain-dead morons, who then become the focus of news reports, obliterating completely the intentions of the majority of demonstrators. In the Occupy Oakland demonstrations, those people called themselves anarchists, which is an insult to the term. In an April New York Times Magazine was an article about Chilean student leader Camila Vallejo, who called those kinds of people the encapuchados (masked people). She felt she had to take very good care that they wouldn’t ruin the good work she and her fellow students were attempting to do. I suggest, from this day forward, we call those people the encapuchados.

Eighteen black women who were told decades ago that their babies had died soon after birth at a St. Louis hospital now wonder if the infants were taken away by hospital officials to be raised by other families. The suspicions arose from the story of Zella Jackson Price, who said she was 26 in 1965 when she gave birth at Homer G. Phillips Hospital in St. Louis. Hours later, she was told that her daughter had died, but she never saw a body or a death certificate. No one is sure who was responsible, but Price's daughter ended up in foster care, only to resurface almost 50 years later. Melanie Gilmore, who now lives in Eugene, Oregon, has said that her foster parents always told her she was given up by her birth mother.
Price's attorney, Albert Watkins, is asking city and state officials to investigate. In a letter to Gov. Jay Nixon and St. Louis Mayor Francis Slay, Watkins said he suspects the hospital coordinated a scheme "to steal newborns of color for marketing in private adoption transactions." Their stories, he said, are strikingly similar: Most of the births were in the mid-1950s to mid-1960s at Homer G. Phillips. All of the mothers were black and poor, mostly ages 15 to 20. In each case, a nurse — not a doctor — told the mother that her child had died, a breach of normal protocol. No death certificates were issued, and none of the mothers were allowed to see their deceased infants, Watkins said. "These are moms," he said. "They are mothers at the end of their lives seeking answers to a lifelong hole in their heart."
Homer G. Phillips Hospital opened in 1937 as a blacks-only hospital at a time when St. Louis was segregated. Even after desegregation in the mid-1950s, the hospital served predominantly African-American patients. The hospital closed in 1979. [end excerpt]

* "Laborer files discrimination charge against Apple" (2015-04-30, [] [begin excerpt]:
A construction worker who lost his job on Apple’s new campus because of a 2008 felony conviction said he filed a complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission alleging discrimination.
The complaint by Kevin Yip could trigger an investigation of the tech giant’s hiring practices, which became the subject of controversy last month when The Chronicle reported that Apple was barring felons from construction jobs.
If the commission sues, it could chart legal territory regarding criminal histories and employment.
Under federal law, it cannot comment on the complaint or even acknowledge that it exists. On its website, the commission has guidelines that say employers are violating the nation’s Civil Rights Act if they fail to show why rejecting workers based on their criminal histories is “job related and consistent with business necessity.”
The commission has sued companies like BMW and Dollar General for their hiring practices involving criminal background checks. Those cases are still pending. [end excerpt]

* "Wake up, Vallejo voters" letter by Mary Washington to the editor of the Vallejo Times-Herald (2015-05-15) []
* "Vallejo asks court to step in regarding MMD ballot initiatives" (2015-05-04, []:
The next chapter in Vallejo’s medical marijuana dispensary saga will continue in the courts.
The City of Vallejo has filed lawsuits against two proposed MMD ballot initiatives, asking the court to declare both initiatives invalid.
In an email to the Times-Herald on Monday, Donna Mooney, Chief Assistant City Attorney, stated that the city will also ask the court to order that a ballot title and summary for each initiative is not required.
In documents submitted to the Superior Court in March, the city contends the (first proposed) initiative is “facially invalid on both constitutional and statutory grounds, and if garnered sufficient signatures and the voters approved it, would prevent its enforcement.”
According to the proposed initiative, MMDs which have paid the Measure C tax, are located at least 600 feet from the nearest school and are in compliance with the state law would be allowed to continue operation. The ballot measure would force any marijuana business operating in Vallejo prior to March 10 that seeks to relocate, and any new marijuana business that wishes to open, be subject to land use ordinances, rules and regulations the city council may adopt.
In 2011, around 76 percent of city voters approved Measure C, which imposes a business license tax rate of 10 percent on the sale of medical marijuana products within the city.
The council in January voted to shut down all MMDs operating within the city — even if they were paying the Measure C tax — and to stop collecting the tax altogether.
In February, several MMDs representatives were turned away from City Hall as they attempted to pay $50,000 in Measure C taxes.
The city contends the initiative, if approved, would give the MMDs, as corporations, the power to continue operations notwithstanding local or federal law to the contrary.
State law states that initiatives may not “name or identify any private corporation to perform any function or to have any power or duty,” the city said in its lawsuit.
The city also argues that the initiative would alter local variance law, which is in violation of state law and the city’s charter.
A variance is a request for a change from the zoning code for a certain development standard because of an unusual situation tied to a particular parcel of land.
“Variance is for something particular to the property, not the use of the property,” the city states in its lawsuit.
Finally, the city claims that the initiative is illegal because it allows spot zoning by “(singling) out certain parcels of land for special benefit.”
Mooney confirmed Monday that the city has submitted a legal challenge to a second MMD ballot initiative which was submitted to the city on April 16. According to law, the city attorney’s office has 15 days to provide a ballot title and summary for each ballot initiative for circulation of signatures.
Last Friday was day 15 for the second ballot initiative, which if approved by voters would allow MMDs to continue operations if open on or before January 1, and have paid the Measure C tax.
The initiative contends that, if approved, it will allow safe access to medical cannabis in Vallejo for qualified patients whose doctors recommend cannabis as authorized by state law and ensure the city continues to collect the Measure C tax, to pay for general fund services and programs such as police, fire protection, road repair and other general fund expenditures as determined by the city council.
The proponents also argue that the proposed ballot measure would protect jobs of those working in the MMDs.
In an email to the city council and officials last Thursday, James Anthony, an attorney representing the Measure C 11 — the MMDs which paid the tax before the city stopped collecting — asked for the city to provide a title and summary for the second ballot initiative.
“Such blatant disregard for democratic process, undermining the rights of voters, smacks of Jim Crow tactics for denying minorities the vote,” Anthony wrote. “You are better than this. Debate the issues with us (and) disagree with us.
“But do not cheat and violate the law,” he added. “That simply violates the whole civil relationship of trust in law and order and the democratic process.”

* "California For The Rich Only? Enough Is Enough Vallejo"
Friday, May 8at 12:00pm
555 Santa Clara Street, Vallejo, Ca
The City of Vallejo Touts itself as being the most diverse cities in America but it is hiding a very dark secret.
That secret is: Vallejo city leaders have failed is residents in every way imaginable by allowing the militarization of it's police force and arming them to the teeth.
City leaders have armed Vallejo Police while failing to drug test or psychologically evaluate any of it's police officers beyond being hired.
What does this mean?
If an officer was hired 20 years ago , that is the first and last drug test and psychological evaluation they will ever have. Regardless of histories of abuse, Officer involved shootings , traffic incidents or complaint of excessive force.
In 2012 Vallejo Police Department had the highest amount of officer involved shooting per capita in the nation but still no drug testing or psychological evaluations and May Osby Davis is okay with this.
In 2012 Mario Romero was Murdered by Vallejo police officer's Sean Kenney and Dustin Joseph as he sat in front of his Vallejo home. He was fired at 40 times, Shot 30 times including 8 times through the palms of his hands. He was cut from his seatbelt and his body taken from the crime scene, the crime scene was changed by Sean Kenney , Dusting Joseph Corporal Stan Eng Officer Matthew Thompson and Police Supervisor Clark but still no drug test or psychological evaluation.
Vallejo Police Officer Sean Kenney killed 3 unarmed men in 2012 Anton Barrett Mario Romero and Jeramiah Moore and received a promotion to detective instead of a prison cell, He is now in charge of investigating officer involved shootings for the Vallejo police department
Vallejo Police Officer Dustin Joseph has been awarded officer of the year for his terrorism on the community of Vallejo.
The city of Vallejo Has chosen to criminalize those who are apart of a protected class rather then to offer resources or assist.
The city of Vallejo has failed to step up to the plate where seniors of the Florence Douglas Senior center have been robbed of their pool table and source of enjoyment , they city has sent a clear message that they are not interested in elder abuse, theft of property and discrimination of seniors.
The city of Vallejo has failed to honor measures that have been voted upon by it's residents by making a point to criminalize the use of medical marijuana for the disabled.
There has been a great attempt by so called leaders to insure that they have all hands in the pot by causing confusion. the city of Vallejo has made a point to include police in Medical Marijuana dispensaries while failing to enforce drug testing for its police.
Today we say enough is enough, we are calling for a federal investigation in to the Vallejo Police Department by the US Attorney General, we are demanding criminal charges be filed against Sean Kenney, Dustin Joseph for the murder of Mario Romero. we are calling for immediate enforcement of drug testing for all Vallejo Police officers
* We are demanding an end to the terrorism now!
* We are demanding and end to the criminalization of homeless and disabled individuals and protections against terror
* We are demanding a return of the pool table stolen from the Florence Douglas senior center Now!

* "Changed delta tunnels plan results in less restoration" (2015-04-30, [] [begin excerpt]: Gov. Jerry Brown on Thursday announced changes to the state’s plan to build twin tunnels under the expansive delta amid objections from environmentalists who said the move will result in far fewer acres of wetlands and wildlife habitat being restored than initially promised. Brown said the state will restore about 30,000 acres at a cost of $300 million, which will be paid for with public funds. The plan considered for years had called for nearly $8 billion worth of restoration to 100,000 acres along the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta — and those costs were expected to be paid for by the water agencies that were going to receive water from the project. “That 100,000 — we didn’t have the money for it,” Brown said in Oakland. “This 30,000 is fantastic. We’ll actually get it done in a few years. This is a concrete action happening in the real world. The other was a desire on paper.” When they are built, the 30-mile-long twin tunnels are supposed to draw water from the Sacramento River to provide water for water agencies that serve farms and some urban areas, including Los Angeles and parts of the Bay Area. Those agencies are expected to pay for the $15 billion cost of the tunnels, which the state says amounts to about $5 per month per water customer. The tunnels will run north-south from Merritt Island in Yolo County to just south of Discovery Bay in Contra Costa County. Opponents, including environmental activists and local farmers, call the tunnels a “water grab” by growers of water-guzzling crops like almonds that will drain too much water from the river system. Birds and fish — particularly the native delta smelt — have already been suffering from reduced water in the delta that for years has been diverted to irrigate farmland in the Central Valley and to flow into millions of urban taps. The accompanying habitat restoration program has been expected to address the problem that has brought the smelt to near extinction. [end excerpt]

* "Flakka: The New Designer Drug You Need To Know About" (2015-04-30, [] [begin excerpt]: Flakka is produced from a compound known as alpha-PVP, synthetically derived and made from an amphetamine-like derivative of the drug, cathinone.
The khat plant, which grows in parts of the Middle East as well as Somalia, is the source of cathinones. While other designer drugs such as molly or ectasy, which contain MDMA, a psychedelic, have grown in popularity over the past decade, Flakka represents a new trend which could lead to greater harm to those seeking altered states of consciousness. The reason lies behind the mechanism of the drug as a re-uptake inhibitor of dopamine and norepinephrine—important chemicals for nerve transmission—leading to a more prolonged effect, typically referred to as “excited delirium.” Under normal functioning, the chemicals are taken back up by cells after they are released. But Flakka blocks this mechanism for reuptake, leading to a concentrated and prolonged effect of dopamine and serotonin, known as a state of “excited delirium.” One of the chief concerns of Flakka is that the suppliers–typically from China, Pakistan and India– as well as users often do not know what is actually contained in the drug when it is sold on the streets. Transactions by lower level suppliers are often made online, then reaching the streets where is it repackaged in capsules or made available for vaping. Lacking purity, it may be combined or cut with anything from heroin to cocaine, or even sprinkled with cannabis. [end excerpt]

But the consequences of that victory could toll the final bell for the American Republic
A favorite myth of Official Washington is that Syrian “moderates” would have prevailed if only Obama had bombed the Syrian military and provided sophisticated weapons to the rebels.
Though no such “moderate” rebel movement ever existed – at least not in any significant numbers – that reality is ignored by all the “smart people” of Washington. It is simply too good a talking point to surrender. The truth is that Obama was right when he told  New York Times columnist Thomas L. Friedman in August 2014 that the notion of a “moderate” rebel force that could achieve much was “always … a fantasy.”
Such a spectacle would be hard for the world to watch and there would be demands on President Obama or his successor to “do something.” But realistic options would be few, with a shattered and scattered Syrian army no longer a viable force capable of driving the terrorists from power.
The remaining option would be to send in the American military, perhaps with some European allies, to try to dislodge Al-Qaeda and/or the Islamic State. But the prospects for success would be slim. The goal of conquering Syria – and possibly re-conquering much of Iraq as well – would be costly, bloody and almost certainly futile.
The further diversion of resources and manpower from America’s domestic needs also would fuel the growing social discontent in major U.S. cities, like what is now playing out in Baltimore where disaffected African-American communities are rising up in anger against poverty and the police brutality that goes with it. A new war in the Middle East would accelerate America’s descent into bankruptcy and a dystopian police state.
The last embers of the American Republic would fade. In its place would be endless war and a single-minded devotion to security. The National Security Agency already has in place the surveillance capabilities to ensure that any civil resistance could be thwarted. [end excerpt]

Here are five things you should know about the group.
1. Anti-Islam or pro-free speech? The Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks extremist groups, lists the American Freedom Defense Initiative as an "active anti-Muslim group" []. The New-York-based AFDI says its goal is simply to "go on the offensive when legal, academic, legislative, cultural, sociological, and political actions are taken to dismantle our basic freedoms and values."
2. Pamela Geller is the group's executive director. Again, the SPLC describes her as "the anti-Muslim movement's most visible and flamboyant figurehead." Geller runs a website called Atlas Shrugs, which The New York Times says [] "attacks Islam with a rhetoric venomous enough that PayPal at one point branded it a hate site []." Geller, of course, doesn't think of it that way. In fact, in a speech delivered just before the contest for cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad opened, she defended her group's actions. She referenced the January attack on the offices of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which was targeted over its own depictions of the prophet. Geller said that over the years, she has seen an "abridgment of freedom of speech" and her group was gathered to counter that. She says that limiting speech that offends Muslims will hasten the march toward a Sharia state. "We are here for freedom of speech," she said. "Everything else is a smear."
3. The group was recording as it received word of the shooting. A police officer in tactical gear delivered the news. The crowd inside the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland went quiet, and as the police officer began to leave, someone shouted, "Was the suspect Muslim?" The video is here []. [end excerpt]

From a time of peace; to a time of riot.
From a time of Liberty; a time of protest.
With their voices heard, but their hands tied; money made its way to abide.
And the very rulers who thought and thought, with money and guns false news and timing.
Had to hurt my country that's slowly dying.
And from the mist came a breeze; That cleared it all through.
a spark, an idea; the one that cleared it anew.
For money, soldiers they don't have a clue.
That the very end will approach for you too.

World Anti-Imperialist Alliance for People's Democracy (Marxist-Leninist-Maoist)
The program for instituting a People's government is based on the success of the implementation of the theries of Lenin and Mao. For example, read the following from []: In 1918, Lenin proclaimed that Russia was under a regime of “dual power”—that of the pre-existing state government, and of the new central council (soviet) of worker's and peasant's deputies. The revolutionary socialists ("Bolsheviks") must run the council, directly or indirectly, as scientifically trained economists and social organizers. The council would have to be developed primarily as an “organ of uprising.” It would assume full political power and create a new form of state (not as a parliamentary republic, which would be “a step back”) to replace the pre-existing state government. To begin with, agitation should be based upon the slogan “all power to the councils (soviets)”. The Bolsheviks were to strengthen their positions within the councils while agitating for power to the central council as a whole in opposition to the state government. The idea expressed tactical genius but it shocked the party members who thought that the notion of “smashing the state apparatus” constituted anarchism—which it was—and that Lenin’s tactics of “permanent revolution” were unrealistic—which they were not.

European racial vanguards
* Rebranding fascism: national anarchists" (2014-06-24, by Spencer Sunshine) [] [begin excerpt]: National-Anarchists have adherents in Australia, Great Britain, the United States, and throughout continental Europe, and in turn are part of a larger trend of fascists who appropriate elements of the radical Left. Like “Autonomous Nationalists” in Germany and the genteel intellectual fascism of the European New Right, the National-Anarchists appropriate leftist ideas and symbols, and use them to obscure their core fascist values. The National-Anarchists, for example, denounce the centralized state, capitalism, and globalization — but in its place they seek to establish a system of ethnically pure villages. Simultaneously, National-Anarchists hope to draw members (such as reactionary counter culturalists and British National Party members) away from traditional White Nationalist groups to their own blend of what they claim is “neither left nor right.”
Despite this claim, National-Anarchist ideology is centered directly on what scholar Roger Griffin defines as the core of fascism: “palingenetic populist ultranationalism.” “Palingenetic,” he says, is a “generic term for the vision of a radically new beginning which follows a period of destruction or perceived dissolution.” Palingenetic ultranationalism therefore is “one whose mobilizing vision is that of the national community rising phoenix like after a period of encroaching decadence which all but destroyed it.” For the National-Anarchists, this “ultranationalism” is also their main ideological innovation: a desire to create a stateless (and hence “anarchist”) system of ethnically pure villages. Troy Southgate, their leading ideologue, says “we just want to stress that National Anarchism is an essential racialist phenomenon. That’s what makes it different.” [end excerpt]

* "Understanding Cuban Democracy" (2015-04-29, [] [begin excerpt]: I am not an apologist for the Cuban political system, and I do not present the road taken by Cuba towards democracy as any kind of ideal. But neither am I interested in criticizing it. Unlike many foreign authors, I do not consider myself an “adviser” to the Cubans. I do believe that there are many Cubans involved in People’s Power, in the universities, in the media, who have a realistic vision and are focusing on how to improve the political system within the constitutional order established by the 1976 referendum. I am on the same page as those Cubans. There is extensive, serious debate in Cuba about how to go about making these improvements. My book is intended as an entry in that debate. I think there should be more publications like it. As far as I know, and I may be wrong, there is no other book on offer at this Fair that concerns itself with the Cuban system and its electoral patterns. Cuba is the main country I look at, but not the only one. Some of its neighbours that I also study are Venezuela, Bolivia, and Ecuador, which are equally positive examples of democracy as it really is, which means an embodiment of people’s power. Another neighbour – a very different neighbour, as you know – is the United States. The subtitle Democracy in Motion is intended to indicate that I don’t consider democracy a fixed structure; it has to be evaluated and measured according to its own dynamic. We have to look at whether the political system in which it is embedded is truly participatory. If we look, for example, at what is taking place in Venezuela today, we can see that people’s participation in the defense of their own sovereignty and democracy is vital. I also mention Venezuela because, thanks to my agreement with the Cuban publisher of this book, Ciencias Sociales, we’re now able to deliver the Spanish version to publishing houses in other countries. There are a number of possibilities, and we are in contact with the Venezuelans. I should note that participatory democracy and the legacy of Hugo Chávez have a special place in the book.

* "THE PCP LEADS THE DEMOCRATIC REVOLUTION OF NATIONAL RESISTANCE AGAINST IMPERIALISM, MAINLY YANKEE" (2009-01, Peru People’s Movement)[] [begin excerpt]: The MPP salutes and rejoices at the advance of the PCP when it comes to Party leadership, and announces to the world: that the Party today has a militarized leadership, a militarized Central Committee and is carrying out a readjustment of the structure from top to bottom.
We base ourselves on the collective leadership and in the one-person leadership and consider the role of the leaders and how the leadership of the revolution, through the people’s war, in the midst of the renewal of the leadership, is being solidified and forged. We maintain the principle that the command never dies. The whole Central Committee is in the countryside, since in our people’s war the countryside is the principal arena for the actions, and the cities are a necessary complement. It is the development of the road of encircling the cities from the countryside, and its marrow the Support Base. So, to grasp the importance of this great conquest of the Party - its greater militarization, that this necessarily implies a process of struggle between the old and the new in order for it to develop more, that the war is the highest form for solving the contradictions, since it empowers people’s ability to find solutions - we must understand that it is only by developing the war more, that we have been able to have a militarized Central Committee. It is with the militarization of the Party that the people’s war is initiated and is developed. It is the principal form of struggle, so that all the members have to be militarized; thus, taking the Party as the axis of everything, build the army around it and, organizing the masses in people’s war, build the new state. The PCP contributes with its experience of concrete application of Maoism, which is universally valid, to the demand and necessity that the Communist Parties of the world militarize themselves.

And especially we assume the call to build the People’s Heroes Monument in honor of the massive heroism of the Peruvian people, including Heroes prisoners in El Fronton, Lurigancho and El Callao, who gave their blood and their lives to end oppression and exploitation and build a better world. This commemoration of the International Day of the Political Prisoner, occurs in a global context of long, slow recovery from the global economic crisis, the largest and most serious crisis of the capitalist system, expressing the deepening of inter-imperialist contradictions for the redivision of the world and configuring an anteroom of a new world war. Situation that sharpens the class struggle and contradictions in the world, the main: oppressed nations – imperialism, which is reflected in the constant aggression against the peoples of the world and the resistance and struggle of these.
In our country, highlight the indomitable struggle that we carry political prisoners struggling to Solution Politics, General Amnesty and National Reconciliation! McCarthyism facing political persecution and inquisitorial outside and inside prisons. And in particular, to highlight special recognition to the most important political prisoner, Dr. Abimael Guzmán Reinoso, Chairman of the Communist Party of Peru, who at 80 years of age and about 23 in cruel conditions of isolation and life in the Base Military Callao, keeps you undefeated their Marxist-Leninist-Maoist ideological convictions. We reiterate our unwavering commitment to defend their lives and health and fight for their freedom. For his wife, Professor Elena Yparraguirre Revoredo, was in similar conditions for 15 years, and every so often is the target of reprisals for their unwavering ideological convictions.
The health of many prisoners is precarious and worsened by poor prison attention as in the case of Comrade Victor Zavala Cataño, renowned playwright who has over 82 years of age. Two months ago, the political prisoner Margi Evelyn Clavo Peralta, communist fighter lifetime, died with terminal cancer after 20 years in prison, accelerated death by torturing to which Peruvian state conditions, with Ollanta Humala in the lead collusion with the extreme right, he underwent. As part of this political persecution opened new prosecutions for acts 30 years ago to prevent the release of political prisoners Osman Morote, Margot Liendo and Victoria Trujillo Agurto, prisoners who have served their full sentence of 25 years but remain imprisoned. Also, after a year of persecution and detention of leaders and activists of Movadef, the rear freedom curbed the reactionary aim to imprison all the judicial process continues and it is being committed violations of due process to prevent political struggle for fundamental rights and general amnesty, which denounce and unmask. Worldwide, political prisoners fighting for better conditions and their right to freedom.
We welcome and solidarity with the Maoists political prisoners in Morocco carrying a hunger strike since March 23, 2015, in order to expose and stop the abuse and physical and moral suffering daily assaults in prisons in the reaction. We support the struggle of thousands of political prisoners in India and the Philippines that harsh repression keep up morale of the revolution. We stand in solidarity with the struggle of thousands of Kurdish prisoners and its leader, Abdullah Öcalan fellow fighters for the freedom of his people.
With Basque political prisoners facing a repressive penal policy, repression extends to their families. With the thousands of Palestinian prisoners from Israeli combat rages yoke viciously against children, elderly, women who resist the occupation of their land. With the exemplary resistance of prisoners of Chiapas are not faint and strength to his people that defends against capitalist expansion that threatens their land. With political prisoners in Guantanamo prison sinister imperialist torture and denial of fundamental rights. With the thousands of political prisoners in Colombia who rebelled for a more just society. With the Mapuche political prisoners held for more than 20 days on hunger strike, imprisoned by the repressive laws judicializes social conflicts. With political prisoners in Paraguay, imprisoned and prosecuted for defending their lands and natural resources. With political prisoners in Guatemala, Argentina, Ecuador, the United States itself and the five continents, all defend fundamental rights and expose the reactionary action against their peoples.
Tens of thousands of political prisoners scattered in different prisons in the world, but common to all is that they are social, revolutionary and communist fighters fighting selflessly against oppression and exploitation of the capitalist and imperialist system, for the defense of their lands and natural resources , for the defense of their fundamental rights , for independence against imperialist aggression , or the transformation of this system in new and different for the generations of tomorrow one. The struggles of political prisoners are an encouragement and example to continue fighting for the revolutionary transformation of the old oppressive and exploitative world and as part of them, political prisoners and prisoners of war in Peru , we transform the squalid dungeon prison in shining trenches combat , we reaffirm our commitment to serving the people life and never sink the knees.

The monumental sacrifices of the Russian people during World War II are not only being marginalized, but flipped upon their heads. Today, reading through the Western media, one will find a multitude of comparisons between Russia and Nazi Germany, with Russian President Vladimir Putin compared with Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler.  Beyond distasteful, this propaganda is dangerous to the point where it borders on exonerating the Nazis, even celebrating their acts of aggression and bolstering those monkeying their ideology today, particularly in Ukraine, Poland and other NATO-oriented Eastern European nations where fascism has been resurrected to once again battle the Russian people. The most recent example of this can be seen in an ABC News article “Polish Border Guards Refuse Entry for 10 Russian Bikers,” where Russian bikers planned to trace the route of Russian soldiers as they pushed back the Nazi tide in World War 2. Their goal was to visit the grave sites of fallen Russian soldiers (which includes many Polish soldiers who fought alongside them) and honor the sacrifices of tens of millions who resisted and eventually ended fascism in Europe.

Internationalist Revolutionary 1st of May demonstrations occurred across the FRG, with a united front of anarchists and communists, most notably those of the World Anti-Imperialist Alliance, gathering in the cities of Cologne, Hamburg [], Berlin, Stuttgart, Nuremberg, Magdeburg [], Schwenningen, Bremen, Oldenburg, Worms, Weimar, Saalfeld, and in smaller cities.
* "FRG-1st of May reports" (2015-05-05) [] [begin excerpt]:
Report from Hamburg. One of the slogans of the mobilization “Long live international solidarity!” could be heard during the clashes the whole night and this shows the success. With round about one thousand participants it was the biggest part of the demonstration, as last years. Different Turkish organisations like ADGH, ADHK, ATIK, the popular front, Partizan, YDG and Yeni Kadin, organisations from Iran, Latin America, Palestine and German revolutionaries and anti-imperialists from Hamburg and other parts of the FRG participated. The block was what it have to be: “The vivid expression of the deepest merger with them … struggling in stormcentres of world revolution: the revolutionary parties and organisations from Africa, Asia and Latin America” (Call of the League against imperialist Agression). Others report about 1,500 participants. The numbers launched by the police through bourgeois media of 750 not surprisingly underestimates the case. The plan of the reaction regarding revolutionary 1st of may demonstration was to crush it by all means. Right at the beginning they attacked “with everything they had and that´s a lot” (NDR, Hamburg-Journal 01-05-2015). The combating participants of the demonstration were bludgeoned, beaten with batons, attacked with pepper spray, mounted police, four water cannons and two armoured vehicles. Despite that demonstrators resisted with the red flag waving at the front line the whole time. They were supported by foreign forces from other parts of the FRG, specially from North Rhine-Westphalia, which played an important role regarding the combative character of the demonstration. We want to highlight the anarchist block with some hundred militants participating, which value for the revolutionary 1st of May cannot be overestimated. It dissolved itself without any selfishness to support the first rows of the demonstrations against the attacking police.
Also in Saalfeld it came to attacks by fascists. There, 700 gathered and beat down alleged dissidents and counter activists until they had to be taken to hospitals. Similar incidents also happened alongside the arrival routes of the different fascist groups from all over the country. [end excerpt]

Despite the rival demonstration they mobilized more than two thousand people (who quickly dispersed after police attacked). They also withstand outnumbered an extremely violent police. That was spectacular. That demonstrates how efficient even a small group can be if it is based on the principle of cadres and not being just a bunch of thugs.” [end excerpt]

But leaked documents imply that he might have been among the first people to de-facto recognize the referendum of Crimea's reunification with Russia. An ex-adviser of ousted president Viktor Yanukovych published documents that show that Petro Poroshenko indirectly entered into negotiations with Russia just a month after the referendum.
On April 16, just a month after the reunification, billionaire Petro Poroshenko's Sevastopol Marine Plant received a letter from the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade. The ministry asked the plant to report on its financial and business operations between 2010 and 2014. Interestingly, the letter referred to the peninsula as "the Republic of Crimea" and to Sevastopol as "a federal city" — the terms used in Russian legislation. The plant's CEO responded to the request in due time and provided a full report including the revenues, wages and profits year by year. Later, Poroshenko appointed the Marine Plant's CEO the chief of a major defense industry enterprise.
Petro Poroshenko the Politician has relentlessly slammed Russia as an "aggressor", seen phantom Russian armies invade Ukraine and haunted western thresholds asking for weapons to be used against his own nation. But Petro Poroshenko the Businessman sees things differently; he does not hesitate to cooperate even with the "deadly, hideous, merciless Russia", the Politician's #1 enemy. Which of the two personalities will get the upper hand?

Some violent anti-Russian militias, under the guidance of the CIA, infiltrated protests in the Ukraine capital city, started killing protesters, and this killing was blamed on the Ukraine government, which lead to the violent coup of February 2014, installing a fascist regime which proceeded to kill ethnic Russians across Novorossiya (within the eastern jurisdiction of the Republic of Ukraine).

* "IN MIDST OF WAR, UKRAINE BECOMES GATEWAY FOR JIHAD" (2015-02-26, [] [begin excerpt]: In the West, most look at the war in Ukraine as simply a battle between Russian-backed separatists and the Ukrainian government. But the truth on the ground is now far more complex, particularly when it comes to the volunteer battalions fighting on the side of Ukraine. Ostensibly state-sanctioned, but not necessarily state-controlled, some have been supported by Ukrainian oligarchs, and others by private citizens. Less talked about, however, is the Dudayev battalion, named after the first president of Chechnya, Dzhokhar Dudayev, and founded by Isa Munayev, a Chechen commander who fought in two wars against Russia. You can also do business in Ukraine that’s not quite legal. You can earn easy money for the brothers fighting in the Caucasus, Syria and Afghanistan. You can “legally” acquire unregistered weapons to fight the Russian-backed separatists, and then export them by bribing corrupt Ukrainian customs officers.
“Our goal here is to get weapons, which will be sent to the Caucasus,” Ruslan, the brother who meets me first in Kiev, admits without hesitation. “I am here today because my brother, Isa, called us and said, ‘It’s time to repay your debt,’” Ruslan says. “There was a time when the brothers from Ukraine came [to Chechnya] and fought against the common enemy, the aggressor, the occupier.”
That debt is to Ukrainians like Oleksandr Muzychko, who became one of the brothers, even though he never converted to Islam. Muzyczko, along with other Ukrainian volunteers, joined Chechen fighters and took part in the first Chechen war against Russia. He commanded a branch of Ukrainian volunteers, called “Viking,” which fought under famed Chechen militant leader Shamil Basayev. [end excerpt]

The request comes after French investigation have revealed links between the perpetrators of the terrorist act Said Kouachi, Cherif Kouachi and Hamyd Mourad with the Ukrainian Volunteer Sheikh Mansur Battalion run by Isa Munaev a former Chechen associate of slain Islamic State in Syria leader Sheik Omar al-Shishani. Munaev is suspected of running a smuggling operation whereby weapons from the Ukraine conflict are being smuggled into Europe via returning Volunteer fighters and sold to collectors and potential in this case have fallen into the hands of terrorists.
The Ukrainian Volunteer Sheikh Mansur Battalion is a Muslim volunteer battalion made up of mostly European based Chechen fighters who fought under former Chechen President Aslan Maskhadov and before arriving in Ukraine were fighting with the Free Syrian Army and the Fighting Islamic Group of Libya. French Police are investigation weather French based fighters who have fought with the Sheikh Manur Battalion in Ukraine and who have proven links with the Kouchi brothers and Mourad may have smuggled military grade equipment from Ukraine after fighting with the unit during the recent European summer.
Links between Ukrainians and Chechens fighters now fighting with the al-Qaeda linked Al Nusra front and the Islamic State go back to the first two Chechen Wars where volunteers from the Ukraine Nationalist Association Viking Unit led by Oleksandr Muzychko who was killed by Ukrainian anti-terror police in 2014. Slain Islamic State leader Sheik Omar al-Shishani also fought with Muzychko’s Viking Unit as a Georgian Special Force’s Officer.

Ukrainian Fascists and the War in Chechnya: Supporters of Al-Qaeda Terrorism.
* "Radical Ukrainian Nationalism and the War in Chechnya" (2014-05-27, [] [begin excerpt]: The UNA-UNSO has its origins in the turbulent days of the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. The UNSO was created as a paramilitary “patriotic” organization intended to defend the nationalist ideals of the UNA and oppose “anti-Ukrainian separatist movements,” especially in the Crimea and eastern Ukraine. UNSO street fighters quickly gained attention by military-style marches and attacks on pro-Russian political meetings throughout Ukraine. Although UNSO members were sent to Lithuania and Moldova’s Transnistria region in the early 1990s, significant UNSO military operations began with the dispatch of a small group of fighters to Abkhazia to defend Georgian sovereignty in the summer of 1993. Under the command of ex-Soviet officer Valery Bobrovich, UNSO’s “Argo” squad of roughly 150 men found themselves in the thick of the fighting. Russian and Ukrainian security forces declared that UNSO members were acting as mercenaries. As war clouds gathered over Chechnya in 1994, UNA-UNSO leaders Anatoli Lupinos and Dimitro Korchinski began to lead Ukrainian delegations to Grozny to meet with Chechen leaders. This was followed in 1995 by the arrival of UNSO fighters organized as the “Viking Brigade” under the command of Aleksandr Muzychko, though their numbers never approached brigade size. Besides fighting in the battle for Grozny some UNSO members were employed as instructors. UNSO members have also been active in the anti-Lukashenko opposition movement in Belarus, participating in demonstrations and riots. The UNA’s political program appears to an outsider to be full of contradictions. Despite close ties to the Ukrainian Orthodox Church and a general view that Muslims are an anti-Slavic threat, the movement supports Chechnya’s Islamic resistance. While supporting the separatist Chechens, the UNA strongly opposes any sign of separatist sentiment amongst Ukraine’s Crimean Tatars.
According to Russian charges, UNA-UNSO members were active in Chechnya’s Kurchaloi, Vedeno and Nozhai-Yurt districts during 1999-2000. The official UNA position was that the movement would not take part in military operations during this second war, but would assist the separatist government by creating Chechen information centers. Pressure was much stronger this time from the Ukrainian government to keep Ukrainians out of the conflict, and the Foreign Ministry promised that any would-be volunteers would be arrested. Korchinski confirmed the presence of UNSO members in Chechnya at a Kiev rally in March 2000, but complained that the cost of transporting more volunteers had become prohibitive. As recently as March 2005, Ramzan Kadyrov denounced the continued presence of Ukrainian “mercenaries” in Chechnya, but did not provide any details.
In December 2001, Russian Communist Duma deputy Viktor Ilyukhin alleged that Ukraine’s nationalist groups were helping Osama bin Laden organize on Ukrainian territory while the Ukraine government supplied Chechen rebels with weapons and other military equipment. No evidence was presented to substantiate these claims. At the same time, the trial of flamboyant but inept Chechen warlord Salman Raduev heard evidence that 20 Ukrainian nationalists were active participants in the warlord’s terrorist activities in 1997-98.

* "The underground resistance to Kiev’s anti-communist laws" (2015-04-28, [] [begin excerpt]:
On April 9, the Ukraine parliament (Verkhovna Rada) adopted a law called “On the condemnation of the Communist and National Socialist (Nazi) totalitarian regimes in the Ukraine and the prohibition of their propaganda and symbols”. This law clearly has nothing to do with European values such democratic rights and freedoms that the Ukrainian authorities have declared they support. Under this law monuments to Communist leaders will become taboo – that is, those that are still standing. Soviet symbols, such as the Soviet flag, the Soviet anthem and even a memorial plaque in honor of Communist leaders will be outlawed. Monuments must be dismantled within a few months, and all cities and streets named after Communist leaders must be renamed. The law also requires the renaming of “cities, parks, boulevards, streets, alleys, thoroughfares, squares, embankments, bridges and any other places that contain within their names Communist totalitarian symbols”.
In Ukraine, there is more and more talk and discourse concerning Communist “terrorists”. It appears that very shortly Kiev may declare an “anti-Communist operation”. The result will be that groups and individuals that do not accept the nationalist tendency will become more sidelined and then removed altogether. Under the new law a person can simply be called a “Sovcom” (Soviet Communist) and a “promoter of the totalitarian regime” and be prosecuted.
At the same time, the prohibition of Nazi propaganda is just a formality. Simultaneously with the above law, the Rada adopted a law called “On the legal status and honoring the fighters for independence of the Ukraine in the twentieth century”. Under this law, members of dozens of organizations, including those who openly collaborated with the Nazis, will be recognized in Ukraine as heroes and independence fighters. Modern fascist organizations have now become an official part of the Ukrainian state apparatus. They openly use their symbols and sometimes various stylized Nazi symbols. The chevron design of the Azov battalion uses an image that has written on it “the Idea of a Nation” (using the letters “I” and “N”), which has long been an identifying symbol of the Ukrainian neo-Nazis, and which was used by Nazi Germany as the emblem of the SS tank division Das Reich. It is also used by modern neo-Nazis, in particular football hooligans, whose torchlight processions through the streets of Kiev have long been familiar. [end excerpt]
* "Wars of past and present: Who liberated Auschwitz?" (2015-02-04, [] [begin excerpt]:
On January 27 2015, while visiting an exhibition “Auschwitz concentration camp – Ukrainian dimension” in the National Museum of History of the Great Patriotic War located in Kyiv, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk stated that the Nazi concentration camp was liberated by Ukrainian soldiers from Zhytomyr and Lviv regions. These soldiers were part of the First Ukrainian Front of the Soviet Army. Yatseniuk also said that he bows his head in memory of millions of Jews and millions of Ukrainians who fell victims to Nazism and Stalinism. Declarations by Putin that Russia would have won the World War II without Ukraine, are unacceptable, stated Mr. Yatseniuk. Millions of Ukrainians fought against Nazis shoulder-to-shoulder with other nations. Mr. Yatseniuk did not mention Russians. At all. Standing behind Yatseniuk was Volodymyr Viatrovych, director of the Institute of National Memory of Ukraine. This Institute was created in 2006 under former President Victor Yushchenko, inspired by a Polish model.
Victor Yuschchenko is known for a highly controversial decision at the end of his presidency in 2010 to declare Stepan Bandera a national hero of Ukraine. Bandera was the leader of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) which fought a guerilla war against both the Soviet Union and, at times, against units of the German Nazi army during the World War II. At the beginning of the war, the OUN proposed to Germany the creation of a Ukrainian army that would fight alongside Germany army until a ‘final victory’. The OUN was hoping that Nazi Germany would allow the formation of a Ukrainian state. However, the Nazis did not approve of this plan. They arrested the leadership of OUN. Later, leaders of the OUN were released. The main enemies targetted by the OUN were Soviet partisans and troops of the Soviet Army. Although the OUN did conduct raids against the Nazi army in 1944, the OUN also allied with the Nazis later that same year to fight against advancing Soviet troops and partisans. The OUN conducted ethnic cleansings of Poles and Jews on the territory of Western Ukraine. Following WWII, the underground cells of OUN-UPA would kidnap and murder local teachers and heads of collective farms in Western Ukraine because these Ukrainians were working for the Soviet order.The OUN had a military wing – the Ukrainian Insurgent Army or UPA (Ukrayinska Povstanska Armiya). The UPA had significant support from the local population. Thanks to this support, the UPA was able to continue underground fighting against the Soviets after the war. The last active units of UPA were liquidated by the NKVD (Soviet secret police) in 1950, although some centres of resistance remained till 1953-1956.
In June of 2013, a group of 148 deputies from the Party of Regions and from the Communist Party of Ukraine in the Ukrainian Parliament, whose electorates are in South-Eastern Ukraine, signed and sent a petition to the Polish government asking it to recognize as genocide the ethnic cleansing of Poles by the UPA in Volynnia region during the World War II. Not surprisingly, this petition caused a big resonance in Ukraine. How could Ukrainians dare to ask Poles to recognize other Ukrainians as executioners of genocide, especially when these Ukrainians are seen by many as heroes of national liberation? This petition was called an act of high treason; those who signed the petition were labeled haters of the Ukrainian nation and of the Ukrainian state. The Polish Parliament eventually voted a declaration according to which the killing of Poles in Volynnia by OUN and UPA was an ethnic cleansing with features of genocide. According to the declaration, 100,000 Poles fell victims in these cleansings. [end excerpt]

I’d lived there for almost a year before the massacre of May 2nd 2014, in which pro-Ukraine activists burned alive a number of pro-Russia activists eye witnesses report as over a hundred. I remember things really starting in Odessa, March 2014. Peaceful demonstrations, here thousands marching for referendum []. That hope that proceedings could be resolved peacefully increasingly in March giving way to fears that would be far from the case, as each passing week in Odessa escalated []. I was away for May 2nd, already reporting in Slavyansk, however given my attendance at actions in Odessa, knew many who were killed in that inferno. A very interesting documentary on the tragic events of May 2nd here []. Before getting the call to come east, in early April 2014, you could have found me wandering around Odessa. That hope that proceedings could be resolved peacefully increasingly in March giving way to fears that would be far from the case, as each passing week in Odessa escalated. But after March 3rd, and an action at an administrative building in the city, it was clear something had stirred in the city which had, until that point, mostly sat out Euromaidan. I was along from that day, photographing and filming events, on both the pro-Russia and pro-Ukraine sides. On the ‘pro-Russia’ side, I knew these people. Odessites, extremely unhappy with the current situation in Ukraine – an unelected Kiev government passing legislation many saw a direct attack on their culture, way of life. They were, as you can see here, normal, Odessa citizens – from my experience of them, on a personal level, good people []. Of course, as the situation escalated, there were more militant members of the Odessa, pro-Russia side, as there were on the pro-Ukraine side. Yet it must be said that at the demos in Odessa I attended, it was the pro-Ukrainians who came bearing weapons []. Yet, what happened on the evening of May 2nd, with reports of 42 to even over 100 of the ‘pro-Russia’ side burned alive by pro-Ukrainians, in the Trade Union building on Odessa’s Central ‘Kulikovo Pole’ marked a seismic shift in the situation. One from which there was no return, nor could be. It was a day which changed the mood, the stakes, the whole landscape of a situation which quickly spilled into all-out civil war. Just a week later, another large city by the sea, Mariupol, witnessed its own tragedy, when Ukrainian forces entered the city, opening fire on civilians []. In Odessa on May 2nd, true, some peaceful pro-Ukrainians tried to assist their countrymen as they perished in a building which had been their base, their gathering place, for months. But more looked on, chanting pro-Ukrainian songs, posing for photos even. Some of those, formerly peaceful pro-Ukrainian activists, even made, threw Molotov cocktails, with then several who managed to escape incineration by leaping from windows reported as beaten to death on the ground below. Others, shot from the ground, at least escaped the agony of death by incineration.

Nobody was arrested and processed although the leaders of the massacre are well-known by the maidan authorities that took the power illegally in Kiev after a bloody coup at the end of february 2014.

* "Reform or Repression: What’s Behind Russia’s Mysterious College Shutdown?" (2015-05-06, [] [begin excerpt]:
The Ministry’s plan is set to conclude in 2020. Besides the outright closing of about 40% of Russia’s universities, the goal is a thorough-going reform of Russia’s higher-education system, with funds reallocated and consolidated toward better-performing schools. What’s envisioned is a national university hierarchy, following the model of successful Western-style institutions.
Some Western observers are skeptical about the plan. Mark Leiderman, a professor of Russian Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder, who was born and completed undergraduate studies in Russia, noted that many universities, private and public, “are famous for their non-education.”A number of the schools facing closure are nothing more than “certificate printing factories,” according to Andrey Shcherbenok, a professor of Educational Development at the Moscow School of Management who is involved with the Ministry, the rise of which he blames partly on a massive post-Soviet Union expansion of higher education.
“In the Soviet Union, maybe 20% of high school graduates went to study in college, the rest went on to some vocational education. By the end of the 1990s, the figure rose to something like 80% of high school graduates going to college,” Shcherbenok told WhoWhatWhy.
Such a dramatic increase in college education sounds like something to be lauded, but according to Shcherbenok, the sudden demand for and freedom from Soviet rule gave way to lax government approval procedures for new and/or altered programs. As a result, many under-qualified students were admitted to schools simply because the universities had a financial interest in doing so.
“Before the mid-2000s, about 100% of the universities received government accreditation, but the mystery is how that happened,” Shcherbenok said. “People would accredit programs where there was no educational process at all. There are colleges now where there is not even a place, maybe one room inside a village library that calls itself a college and issues diplomas.”
Another part of the Ministry’s framework will be the shuttering of many small university branches, leaving the resources to be reabsorbed by their larger parent schools. According to data from the Ministry, Russia is currently home to 486 private universities with over 600 branches, and 593 state universities with more than 1,000 branches. All together, the schools serve a student body that exceeds 7 million.
While Shcherbenok admitted that professors at Russian universities are overburdened and underpaid, he said one of the biggest problems facing the institutions is actually the teaching staff.
He claims that the average Russian professor is over 60 years old, meaning they likely stuck around through the peak and ultimate fall of the Soviet Union and, as Shcherbenok sees it, they are “extremely conservative” and “resistant to innovation,” traits that are compounded over teaching generations, as professors tend to hire only their own graduates.
“They stay in the same place,” Shcherbenok said, “and this place is already not functioning very well and in a system where all the best people leave and good people from other places never come. So, a lot of the universities are really in shambles.” [end excerpt]

Two of these groups, Division 13 and Fursan al-Haq, have gained grounds while fighting alongside a group calling itself Army of Fatah, an Islamist alliance that includes the Nusra Front – al-Qaeda's wing in Syria – and another hardline militant group, Ahrar al-Sham. Division 13 and Fursan al-Haq, which do not share a joint command structure with Army of Fatah and reject its anti-Western views, receive covert support from the CIA, senior group members said in interviews with Newsweek.

* "NEAR SYRIAN BORDER, WOUNDED FIGHTERS AND CIVILIANS RECOVER" (2015-04-30, AP newswire) [] [begin excerpt]:
The mood is relatively upbeat among the young Syrian men, their lives forever scarred by war, at the Dar Al-Salameh center for recovery and physiotherapy in the Turkish border town of Kilis.
"This is a temporary home where Syria's many wounded people who have nowhere else to go can stay until they recover," said Yasser Abu Ammar, a Syrian physician. The center is one of several in the border area that were established to help deal with the massive number of wounded streaming in from the war next door.Hassan, who fought with an Islamic rebel group in Aleppo, said the only thing he wants to do is return to the front lines, even though he has lost an eye and a leg.
The two-story building in Kilis is less than an hour's drive from Syria's contested northern city of Aleppo and had been receiving a steady stream of people with traumatic injuries asking to stay. The number dropped sharply last month, when Turkey closed the crossing with Syria as a security precaution.
At the center, only a kilometer (half mile) away from the border crossing, patients share the pain of displacement and loss.
"Maybe I cannot fight anymore, but I still want to do something to serve the jihad and the mujahedeen," he said of the "holy war" against Assad.

* "Eyewitness debunks claim of “attack” on Paris Jews by BDS activists" (2015-05-03, [] [begin excerpt]:
An eyewitness account debunks a report disseminated by anti-Palestinian groups and Israeli media that two Jews were attacked by “BDS” – boycott, divestment and sanctions – activists during May Day commemorations in Paris on Friday.
According to the eyewitness, an altercation was provoked by extremists from Ligue de Défense Juive (LDJ), the French counterpart of the Jewish Defense League. In March, two extremists with the Jewish Defence League UK were sentenced for assaulting Palestine activists in London [].
The French pro-Israel website JSSNews claims [] that on Friday at around 3pm, a group of 40 people set upon two men who were “identifiable” as Jews.
JSSNews quotes an unnamed person from “a security service belonging to the Jewish community” stating that “the savages” who allegedly carried out the attack “were linked to the anti-Semitic and anti-Zionist organizations Gaza Firm and BDS.”
The report claims that “police opened an inquiry and it was impossible to learn the condition of the two victims.”
It adds that “this summer it was ‘pro-Palestinian’ youths from Gaza Firm who attacked synagogues in Paris (in Rue de la Roquette in particular).”
In fact, as The Electronic Intifada has reported, Serge Benhaim, the president of the Rue de la Roquette synagogue, categorically denied that any such attack had taken place [].
The 13 July incident was another altercation sparked, according to eyewitnesses, when LDJ members armed with sticks and batons stormed away from the synagogue and tried to provoke street fights with members of Palestinian solidarity groups demonstrating peacefully in the Place de la Bastille against Israel’s attack on Gaza.
JSSNews also cited as a source the BNCVA – a pro-Israel group that purports to monitor incidents of anti-Semitism in France.
On its website, BNCVA claims [] that on 1 May, two Jewish men aged around 21 were attacked by around 40 “Brothers” and lightly injured.
The French-language report actually uses the word “brothers” in English, but it is unclear if it is supposed to indicate the Muslim Brotherhood, a slang term for men of color, or something else.
The Paris 11th district police station – which is responsible for the area where the alleged May Day incident took place – refused to provide any comment to The Electronic Intifada and referred the matter to the central media unit that does not answer phones on Sunday.
There have been no reports of arrests related to the alleged incident.
Israeli media, including Haaretz [], picked up the dubiously sourced report. The website of the Israeli news channel i24News [], citing BNCVA, claimed that “two young men of Jewish extraction were beaten up Friday in Paris by a 40-strong gang.”
In a statement [], the activist collective Géneration Palestine says that on 1 May, in the vicinity of Boulevard Voltaire, persons identifiable as belonging to LDJ and Betar “attacked participants in the traditional May Day march.”
“Attacks and provocations are the modus operandi of the extreme right Zionist militias,” the statement adds. “During the summer of 2014, during demonstrations in support of the people of Gaza, the LDJ became visible in the media because of its violence, provocations and multiple aggressions.”

* "Israeli Soldiers Admit to Shooting Palestinians for 'Fun' in Gaza War" (2015-05-05, [] [begin excerpt]: Israel’s war with Hamas last summer left more than 1,200 Palestinians dead and reduced the Gaza Strip to rubble. Tel Aviv has maintained that much of the damage resulted from Hamas’s use of civilians as human shields, but a recent report consisting of testimonies from the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) tells a very different story. Titled "This is How we Fought in Gaza," the report paints an alarming picture of how the Israeli military’s lenient and permissive rules of engagement led to the senseless death of unarmed civilians and much of the carnage in the Gaza Strip, during the 50-day "Operation Protective Edge." According to the report’s authors, testimonies were collected from over 60 anonymous enlisted men and officers, a quarter of whom "go all the way up to the rank of major." Testimonies were also taken from soldiers serving in various posts during the conflict, ranging from air to ground forces. The report found that "the guiding military principle of 'minimum risk to our forces, even at the cost of harming innocent civilians' led to massive and unprecedented harm to the population and the civilian infrastructure in the Gaza Strip."
In even more disturbing testimonies, some reported that they targeted unarmed civilians simply because they were bored. A 21-year old tank gunner whose testimony was included in the report told the Washington Post that he was "ashamed" of how he targeted unarmed travelers on a main Gaza highway. "War crime is a big word," he said. "I didn’t rape and kill anyone, but yeah, I shot at random civilian targets sometimes, just for fun, so yeah." Soldiers said they were instructed by commanders to assume that anyone in site was a potential threat and should be targeted. "If we don’t see someone waving a white flag, screaming, 'I give up' or something – then he’s a threat and there’s authorization to open fire," a first sergeant with the Mechanized Infantry in Gaza reported.

He will be the first member of the generation of grandsons of the Saudi kingdom’s, Abdulaziz ibn Saud, to be placed first in the line of succession to the throne. Mohammed bin Nayef has emerged as the strongman of the regime, spearheading crackdowns on both Islamic fundamentalists opposed to the ruling family, and dissidents of every kind, from liberals to the Shiite minority to the vast immigrant workforce that performs most of the country’s labor. Perhaps more importantly, from the standpoint of the internecine struggle within the dynasty, the 55-year-old prince has no sons, making the position of deputy crown prince that much more important. Here Salman chose his own son, Mohammed bin Salman, who is only 34 years old, jumping him ahead of hundreds of more senior princes of his generation. Mohammed bin Salman was named secretary of the royal court and the defense minister when his father succeeded to the throne in late January. In the latter position, he is responsible for both theaters of war in which Saudi armed forces are engaged: the bombing of Yemen, which could become a ground invasion; and the bombing of ISIS targets in Syria, where warplanes from Saudi Arabia and other Persian Gulf monarchies play a role in support of the predominately American military operation.

It has been declared in a press statement released on the occasion of May Day 2015. It has come to know that the announcement was scheduled for 25th April, and was postponed after the heart-shaking disaster. In a long, but an analytical press statement—’Real rupture with the liquidationists’, he has made clear the entire situation running within CPN-Maoist. According to Com. Baral, there were several issues concerning the two line struggle that made him to come out from the CPN-Maoist. In his statement, he has focused on four issues: ideological and political line of the party, international communist movement, federal system and identity based politics and party unity with Prachada. Com. Baral has mentioned in his statement that, Baidhya has no any vision, not any plan and policy to advance the New Democratic Revolution . He just want to pass the time doing nothing. He has only one mission of party reunification with Prachanda the traitor, and he wants to achieve this goal at any cost. According to Com. Baral Baidhya is not exercising MLM but liquidationism. He is pleading ‘people’s revolt’ and has abandoned the line of Peoples War and the revolutionary path guided by Maotse-tung. He has abandoned the role of class struggle and exercising the identity based politics. As Baral has mentioned : Baidhya is a man of without willpower and revolutionary enthusiasm. He is not capable to lead the Nepalese revolution. According to Com. Baral to stay with them means to spoil oneself, to cheat the Nepalese oppressed people. We all know Dr. Rishi Raj Baral, who joined 10 years People’s War, is the convener of Revolutionary Intellectual-Cultural Front, Nepal. [end excerpt]

The leaders of China and Russia will take part in the most important celebrations of the year — Victory Parades which will be held on May 9 and September 3 in Moscow and Beijing respectively.
Regarding these celebrations the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of China in the Russian Federation, Li Hui, spoke to Rossiyeskaya Gazetta. “This year marks the 70th anniversary of the Victory in World War against fascism and the 70th anniversary of the victory of the Chinese people in the war of resistance against Japan. Being two important fronts of Asia and Europe, China and Russia will carry out celebrations to jointly protect the results of the Victory in World War II and international justice, which is an important event in Sino-Russian relations and will attract attention from the international community,” His Excellency Li Hui said.
He added that 70 years ago the people of Russia and China faced serious aggression from the fascists and experienced the most severe hardships and greatest losses. In turn, China and Russia made their historically important contribution to the victory in the global war against fascism. “We strongly oppose any attempts to falsify the history of the Second World War, the aim of which is to disrupt the postwar world order,” His Excellency said.
He continued by saying that with these celebrations, they call on all people to strive for peace and to resolutely defend it to avoid the repetition of historical tragedies and to defend the bounties of victory in World War II. Regarding the attempts of some governments to distort history and revive fascism, the ambassador said that this is unacceptable. The countries should follow the principles of the United Nations — such is the position of the Chinese Government. “We strongly oppose any attempts to falsify the history of the Second World War. It is disappointing that some individual countries are not able to properly evaluate and review the deep history of foreign aggression and colonial rule by Japanese militarism.” According to him such countries vainly try to blur the line between truth and lies, the aggression issue gets labeled as the struggle for justice, and war criminals are made heroes. This causes pain and terror in the hearts of the people. "Special attention should be paid to the fact that in recent years the situation has been steadily intensifying. The position of such figures is becoming increasingly fierce, which makes peace-loving forces of the world strengthen their vigilance."
Regarding relations between Russia and China, His Excellency said that Sino-Russian relations are currently experiencing the best period in the history of their development. The prominent features of Sino-Russian relations are nonalignment, the absence of confrontation as well as the rejection of the dividing lines of ideological principles. This year will see a number of joint activities between Chinese and Russian leaders. They will be seen during the celebration of the 70th anniversary of the Victory in World War II. In addition, the leaders will meet during the BRICS summit, SCO, G20 and APEC. The heads of both governments will also collaborate during the Sino-Russian commission on energy, humanitarian and investment cooperation.

But that’s exactly what Phra Buddha Issara is dealing with as he mounts a campaign to overhaul Thailand’s religious institutions. The activist monk has earned plenty of enemies since he launched a campaign to clean up Buddhism in Thailand, urging the country’s 300,000 monks to be more transparent in their financial dealings and the religion’s governing body, the Supreme Sangha Council, to crack down on wrongdoing. Thai Buddhism, much like Thai democracy, is in a state of upheaval. “There is more open crisis in the Sangha then has been seen in living memory,” said Michael Montesano, a Thailand expert at the Institute of Southeast Asian Studies. “This is a crisis in yet another Thai institution.” Monks have long been revered here, in a country where 95 percent of the population is Buddhist. They have their own fast-track lane at the airport and designated priority seats on the metro. But in recent months, there have been tales of monastic misbehavior that would seem to belong in the most gossipy tabloids. There have been monks with girlfriends (and boyfriends), drunk monks crashing cars, monks pocketing wads of cash meant for funerals or playing the stock market. And that’s not even mentioning the monks-on-meth or the selfie-snapping, Louis Vuitton bag-wielding, private jet-taking monk scandals of 2013. [end excerpt]

Yet not a word of complaint was heard from a compliant Gough.
Tony Abbott recently said, “I want to acknowledge the work that Indonesia has done to provide greater autonomy... to provide a better life for the people of West Papua”.
And in response to demonstrators in Jakarta, he said, “... and people seeking to grandstand against Indonesia’s [invasion of West Papua] please, don't look to do it in Australia. You are not welcome.”
Documented incidents of torture and mass murder by the Indonesian military in West Papua abound, while the local population complains that profit from the rich resources raped from its land finds its way back to Jakarta leaving West Papuans destitute.
West Papuans are a distinctly ethnic and mostly Christian group ripe for Islamic dominance. Bows and arrows prove hardly an effective defence against the rape of women and children and the slaughter of entire villages. [end excerpt]

1961 Law On The Books to Disarm All Americans, impetus for “ultimate world disarmament” and U.N. control over military
Public law 87-297, the Arms Control and Disarmament Act signed by President Kennedy in 1961, provides an impetus to not only ban civilian firearm ownership but to also transfer control of the U.S. military to the United Nations.
Public Law 87-297 []
“It is the purpose of this Act to provide impetus toward this goal by creating a new agency of peace to deal with the problem of reduction and control of armaments looking toward ultimate world disarmament,” the law states.
The law was based primarily on State Department Publication 7277, The United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World, which advocates the complete disarmament of every country in favor of a permanent U.N. military force:
Department of State Publication 7277 Dtd 1961 by SFCWizard77
The over-all goal of the United States is a free, secure, and peaceful world of independent states adhering to common standards of justice and international conduct and subjecting the use of force to the rule of law; a world which has achieved general and complete disarmament under effective international control; and a world in which adjustment to change takes place in accordance with the principles of the United Nations.
In order to make possible the achievement of that goal, the program sets forth the following specific objectives toward which nations should direct their efforts:
– The disbanding of all national armed forces and the prohibition of their reestablishment in any form whatsoever other than those required to preserve internal order and for contributions to a United Nations Peace Force;
– The elimination from national arsenals of all armaments, including all weapons of mass destruction and the means for their delivery, other than those required for a United Nations Peace Force and for maintaining internal order;
– The institution of effective means for the enforcement of international agreements, for the settlement of disputes, and for the maintenance of peace in accordance with the principles of the United Nations;
– The establishment and effective operation of an International Disarmament Organization within the framework of the United Nations to insure compliance at all times with all disarmament obligations.

Since public law 87-297 was enacted, just about every president has worked to enact its provisions, including President Obama who signed a U.N. arms trade treaty which was rejected by the Senate.
“The right to own, buy, sell, trade, or transfer all means of armed resistance, including handguns, is denied to civilians by [Article 2] of the Arms Trade Treaty,” wrote Joe Wolverton II of the New American. “Article 3 places the ‘ammunition/munitions fired, launched or delivered by the conventional arms covered under Article 2′ within the scope of the treaty’s prohibitions, as well.”

* "Obama’s role model to journalists — Dorothy Thompson" (2015-04-28, [] [begin excerpt]:
Thompson’s long life and career was documented in her biography, American Cassandra, by Peter Kurth. She was born in 1893, the daughter of an impoverished Methodist preacher.  After graduating from Syracuse University, she became a major player in New York’s suffrage movement as an organizer and speaker.  In 1920, Thompson went to Europe with a friend to pursue her journalism career.  The ship was filled with Zionists heading to a conference in London and during the 12-day voyage she learned everything she could about Zionism, becoming a strong advocate for their cause.
In London, she convinced a paper to allow her to cover the Zionist conference as a free-lance journalist and later covered the Irish Rebellion. The popularity of her articles in the US led to further positions. By 1925, she was head of the Berlin bureau for the New York Post.  She married author Sinclair Lewis in 1928.  She exposed and criticized the Nazis early on, and, in 1930, was one of the first journalists to interview Adolph Hitler.  She predicted the Germans would start a new war by the end of that decade.  In 1934, her aggressive anti-Nazi reporting caused Hitler to expel her from Germany.
Thompson returned home a national hero, her story on the cover of newspapers and magazines throughout the country.  Her fame increased as she became a syndicated national columnist and radio commentator for NBC.  By 1936, she was writing a political column for the New York Herald Tribune and was considered the leading voice in the war against fascism.  By 1939, she was on the cover of Time magazine.  A movie about her life stared Katharine Hepburn and a play stared Lauren Bacall.  She was named the second most popular and influential woman in America behind Eleanor Roosevelt.  She spoke out about anti-Semitism and the plight of the Jews in Europe, and urged a relaxation of immigration restrictions so the US could be a safe haven for the Jews under threat in Europe.
In the summer of 1941, she went to London to report on the Blitz and met with the Queen and with Prime Minister Winston Churchill.  She fought against isolationism and urged the president to declare war on Germany.  In 1942, at a Zionist convention at the Biltmore hotel, she was the keynote speaker and gave a rousing pro-Zionist speech advocating unrestricted Jewish immigration to Palestine.  By the end of the war, she was considered one of Zionism’s most effective spokesmen.
All that changed early in 1945 after a fact-finding trip to Palestine.  Up until 1945, her anti-Nazi and pro-Zionist credentials were impeccable. What she saw in Palestine totally changed her outlook.  She began to write that the proposed establishment of the State of Israel was a formula for disaster, “a recipe for perpetual war” in the Middle East.  During her 1945 trip, she discovered that Zionism was not “the liberal crusade that the Zionist leaders envisaged”, and that Israel was to be “not a small state of Jews who chose to live in Israel, but a Zionist state destined to become the leading power in the Middle East.”
Her anti-Zionist statements and reporting began losing her the support of American Zionists. Her boss at the New York Post dropped her “On the Record” column at the beginning of 1947.  He was a strong supporter of Zionism and very close to the Irgunists and Menachem Begin, the leader of this Jewish terrorist group.  Thompson had told him, after her trip to Palestine, that “…the situation there is not the way it has been presented by many of the Zionists.  It is one of the most complicated and difficult problems on the earth today.”
Despite the loss of this important column, she continued her criticism of Zionist actions in Palestine. She concluded, after the 1948 war, that Zionism was “an aggressive, chauvinist movement” and that the new State of Israel was “an expansionist power.” She was angered by Jewish terrorism in Israel and appalled by Menachem Begin and the Irgun being treated as heroes in New York City.  She was the first and only American journalist to speak out in defense of the Palestinian Arabs and the Arab nations, and was also the first and most prominent American journalist to be smeared with the label of “anti-Semite”.
Still, she wouldn’t back down. In a 1949 column, she detailed the problems caused by Israel’s aggression toward the Palestinian Arabs and urged the UN to establish specific borders for the State of Israel. Her 1949 speech before the anti-Zionist American Council for Judaism resonates today:
Miss Thompson expressed alarm at the way, she said, American Jews are being indoctrinated by Zionist propaganda, “with the idea that they exist in this country–as everywhere outside of Israel–on dubious sufferance and that whatever happened in Germany could happen here any minute.” She denied that there was any analogy between the outbreak of Nazism in Germany and the danger in this country. In addition to this fear, the speaker said, “there is another tendency equally dangerous as it affects non-Jews, and that is to equate anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism.

* "The U.S. Congress: a Metonym for AIPAC" (2014-08-15, [] [begin excerpt]:
AIPAC’s headquarters is located several blocks from Capitol Hill in a nondescript but secure and heavily guarded building whose occupants work closely with the office in Jerusalem and oversee the activities of a further seven U.S. regional AIPAC offices. By working closely with their Washington Headquarters, each regional office maintains a year-round hands-on involvement for its members who are kept informed with seminars on Israeli issues and encouraged to become effectively involved on Israel’s behalf in both local and national politics.
The seeds of AIPAC’S creation were sowed soon after Israel’s establishment as a state in 1948 when it became apparent that in order to cope with the influx of some 600,000 Jewish immigrants — room was made for them by killing palestinians and expropriating their homes — Israel would require the assistance of U.S. Jews. But even before then, U.S. Jewish money was being raised under the deceitful name of American Friends of the Fighters for Freedom of Israel. The money was for for two brutal Jewish Terrorist groups — including the savage Lohamei Herut Yisrael also known as the LEHI or Stern Gang after its founder Avraham Stern — who were murdering innocent civilians as a matter of course to cleanse Palestine of its British occupiers and its indigenous inhabitants. A Mr. Shepard Rifkin who was the executive director after the UN Partition of Palestine and prior to the creation of Israel in May 1948, solicited Albert Einstein to help the Stern Gang raise American money for arms to drive out the Arabs and help create a Jewish state. On April 10th, the day after the infamous massacre of Arabs at Deir Yassin, Einstein replied with the following letter:
"April 10, 1948, to Mr. Shepard Rifkin, Exec. Director, American Friends of the Fighters For the Freedom of Israel, 149 Second Ave., New York 3, N.Y.
Dear Sir: When a real and final catastrophe should befall in Palestine the first responsible for it would be the British and the second responsible for it the terrorist organisations built up from our own ranks. I am not willing to see anybody associated with those misled and criminal people. 
Sincerely yours, Albert Einstein"

Alexander Lvovich Parvus, born Israel Lazarevich Gelfand (1867-1924), was a Marxist theoretician, revolutionary, and a controversial activist in the Social Democratic Party of Germany. In 1900, he met Vladimir Lenin for the first time, in Munich, each admiring the other's theoretical works. Parvus encouraged Lenin to begin publishing his revolutionary paper Iskra. However, German counter-intelligence had penetrated part of the socialist revolutionary network and upon reading his writing in the socialist press during the Russo-Japanese War, found Parvus had predicted that Russia would lose the war, resulting in unrest and revolution. When this proved to be the case, Parvus' prestige among his socialist and other German comrades increased. Thus, German intelligence soon estimated he would be useful in efforts against the Russian Empire. During this time he developed the concept of using a foreign war to provoke an internal revolt within a country. It was at this time that Parvus revived, from Karl Marx, the concept-strategy of "permanent revolution". He communicated this philosophy to Trotsky who then further expanded and developed it. Through Trotsky, the method was eventually adopted by Vladimir Lenin and the Bolsheviks in Lenin's April Theses in 1917.
In 1905, Parvus arrived in St. Petersburg with false Austro-Hungarian papers. Parvus was regarded among European Marxists of the day as an authority on political and financial questions (Source: "The Rise of Social Democracy in Russia" by J.L.H. Keep, 1963, pg. 191); consequently when he authored a provocative article In December entitled The Financial Manifesto, which described the Russian economy as being on the verge of collapse it received broad play in the press.
In combination with this propaganda, Parvus coordinated an agitation of locals to feign a run on the banks. As the news of the article and the subsequent "rush" was spread, the consequent hysteria managed to upset the economy and enrage prime minister Sergei Witte, but did not cause a financial collapse.
In connection with this provocation and Parvus' involvement in the organization of anti-government actions during the 1905 revolution, Parvus (together with other revolutionaries such as Leon Trotsky) was arrested by the Russian police. While in prison he became close with other revolutionaries, and was visited by Rosa Luxemburg. Sentenced to three years exile in Siberia, Parvus escaped and emigrated to Germany, where he published a book about his experiences called In the Russian Bastile during the Revolution. Consequently, Parvus offered his plan via Baron von Wangenheim to the German General Staff: the paralyzing of Russia via general strike, financed by the German government (which, at the time, was at war with Russia and its allies) (Source: "Alexander Helphand-Parvus–Russian Revolutionary and German Patriot", 1959-10 by Heinz Schurer for Russian Review Vol. 18, No. 4, pages 313-331). Von Wangenheim sent Parvus to Berlin where the latter arrived on the 6 March 1915 and presented a 20 page plan titled "A preparation of massive political strikes in Russia to the German government" (Source: "The plan of the Russian Revolution" machine translated []).
Parvus' detailed plan recommended the division of Russia by sponsoring the Bolshevik faction of the Russian Social Democratic Labor Party, encouraging ethnic separatists in various Russian regions, and supporting various writers whose criticism of Tsarism continued during wartime. Basing himself on his 1905 experiences, Parvus theorised that the division of Russia and its loss in the First World War was the best way to bring about a socialist revolution.
As the depth of Parvus' arrangements with the Imperial Government became known, the revelations ruined relations with the rest of the revolutionary network including Rosa Luxemburg and other German socialists who were engaging in the subversion of the German Empire. Despite evidence showing that Parvus had never betrayed German socialists to the authorities, his credibility among the revolutionary elite went sour.
As his political activity waned, the war ground to a halt, and he refused to help the new German authorities smash the Spartacist uprising, he retreated to a German island near Berlin. Despite his failure to help the new Weimar Republic regime he was well provided for, living in a well-appointed 32-room mansion in Berlin's Peacock Island. He later published his memoirs from this residence.
Parvus has left no documents after his death and all of his savings disappeared. Both of his surviving sons became Soviet diplomats.

In terms of autonomous development—may God grant Ukraine every success in this endeavor. Its grave mistake lies specifically in its excessive expansion into those lands that were never Ukrainian prior to Lenin: two Donetsk regions, the entire southern strip of Novorossia (Melitopol-Kherson-Odessa), and Crimea.
(Accepting Khrushchev’s gift was, in the very least, done in bad faith, including the appropriation of Sevastopol, despite—I’m not saying “Russian sacrifices”—but also from the standpoint of Soviet legal documents, this was state theft)…
How many Russians—with indignation and horror—lived through the 24-hour hand-over of Crimea, lacking any will and uncontested in any shape or form thanks to the nature of our sagging diplomacy back then? Then came its betrayal in every Crimean conflict. And the obedient hand-over of Sevastopol—the diamond of Russian military valor—without even the smallest political steps. This evil was committed by our elected government; however, we, citizens, did not oppose it in time either. And now for the long foreseeable future, the upcoming generations will have to accept this…
Pushing out the Black Sea Fleet from Sevastopol is the lowest, evil abuse of the entire Russian history of the 19th and 20th centuries. Under all these conditions, Russia cannot dare indifferently betray those millions of Russians in Ukraine in any shape or form, or renounce our unity with them.
The Ukrainian authorities had chosen the path of forcefully persecuting the Russian language. Not only did they deny its right to become the second state language, but they are also zealously pushing it out of radio, television, and print media. Everything is done in the Ukrainian language in post-secondary institutions, from the entrance exam to the final project, and it is too bad if the terminology is insufficient. School programs either completely exclude Russian, or introduce it as a “foreign” language in an elective course; they completely pushed out the history of the Russian state and almost all the Russian classics from the literature courses. We hear accusations along the lines of “Russian linguistic aggression” and “Russified Ukrainians are the fifth column.” Thus begins the suppression of Russian culture, rather than the growth of the Ukrainian one. And they persist in oppressing the Ukrainian Orthodox Church—the one that remained loyal to the Moscow Patriarchate with its 70% of Ukrainian Orthodox…
The fanatical suppression and persecution of the Russian language (which the previous polls demonstrated as the main language for more than 60% of the population) is a brute measure, one that is directed against the cultural prospects of Ukraine itself.

In rejected Galicia, accompanied by Austrian mocking, there grew a distorted Ukrainian language that was not of organic nature [nenarodnyi, didn't develop from among the People], packed with German and Polish words …
Even the ethnic Ukrainian population does not speak or use the Ukrainian language under many circumstances. Thus, there must be measures of transferring all nominal Ukrainians into the Ukrainian language. Then, there will obviously be the task of making Russians use the Ukrainian language, too (and this already—not without violence?). Then, the Ukrainian language is yet to vertically sprout into the upper strata of science, technology, and culture—this task is ahead, too. Furthermore, the Ukrainian language must become mandatory in international relations. Perhaps, all these cultural tasks might need more than a single century. For now, we are reading the news about the persecution of Russian-language schools, even thuggish attacks on Russian schools, about ceasing to broadcast Russian television in certain places all the way through to the ban on the Russian-language use between librarians and readers. Is this really the development course of Ukrainian culture?
Ukraine’s anti-Russian position is precisely what the United States needs. Ukrainian government subserviently plays along with the American goal of weakening Russia. And this quickly reached the “special relationship of Ukraine with NATO” and the US navy exercises in the Black Sea. One is forced to recall Alexander Parvus’s immortal plan of 1915: using Ukrainian separatism to succeed in breaking up Russia. [end article excerpt]

Introduction and context to the article
* "Purging the Purged: Solzhenitsyn, Ukraine, and the West" (2015-04-22) []:
Alexander Solzhenitsyn is one of the best-known Soviet dissidents, so much so that he earned the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1970. His Gulag Archipelago, written in the 1950s-60s, and One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich from 1962—both about the Stalin-era labor-camp system—are his most famous works outside of Russia. Yet after the collapse of the USSR, it became increasingly clear that much of his foreign support was not inspired by the Western ideal of ‘human rights’ or concern for average Russians, but served as a tool of geopolitics instead.
His statements about resurgent Russia [], particularly in the last years before his death in 2008–well into the era of Putin’s leadership–did not suit those that would rather have the country in the permanently weak state of ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’ of the 1990s, so that its resources could continue being plundered by domestic oligarchs and foreigners alike, while its culture–transformed into the soft authoritarianism of neo-Liberal Postmodernity. In contrast, one of the most attractive aspects of Putin’s Russia for Solzhenitsyn was the revival that Orthodox Christianity continues to experience.
In the eyes of Western mainstream opinion-makers—that is, in the Anglosphere, specifically—at best, Solzhenitsyn’s support for Putin made him a “puzzle” []. At worst, his patriotism, referred to as “nationalism” with a derogatory connotation, is said to be “off-putting” [], “bizarre” [], and an “irony” []. Newsweek even presented a ‘psychological evaluation’ of Solzhenitsyn, concluding that he suffers from the “Gulag of the Russian mind” []. Indeed, it has become increasingly difficult to use his scathing criticism of certain Soviet policies in light of his advocacy for Russia’s own organic path that includes a set of geopolitical interests. The latter was dubbed as anti-Western.
The final straw seems to have arrived following Ukraine’s coup d’état in 2014 that was backed by Washington and Brussels, when several Russian-language publications decided to revisit Solzhenitsyn’s statements about the two neighboring countries made throughout his life. A number of his comments has been translated into English [], and are well worth examining. Solzhenitsyn felt greatly attached to this subject because “Ukraine and Russia are merged in my blood,” he wrote. I provide another translation of excerpts from a book called Russia in Collapse (Rossiia v obvale, 1998) below. Unsurprisingly, Western officialdom found his goal of returning to a historic union of Russia and Ukraine highly problematic []. Others simply criticized his statements for being uninformed, suggesting that writers should stay away from international relations [].
But the “irony” that the mainstream opinion-makers in the West described was actually on them: Solzhenitsyn was, in fact, consistent in his critique of the Soviet nationalities policies that, at times, divided regions administratively, without accounting for their ethno-cultural makeup. This was the case with Crimea and Donbass, the tragic results of which have become too obvious in the past year.
Falling out of favor with Cold Warriors and their heirs alike, one might reconsider the Archipelago itself. While this massive text undoubtedly has both literary and historic value, it cannot be used for statistical analysis by definition. After all, it was, in part, based on eyewitness testimony and available Soviet legal decrees, rather than those documents that only became declassified after 1991. Neither can this text be employed to describe the entire Soviet era or, for that matter, contemporary Russia, the way propagandists do with their persistent Putin-Stalin trope []. Looking to understand that turbulent period, paradoxically both tragic (from collectivization to the purges) and triumphant (from industrial feats and increased literacy to the elimination of childhood mortality and epidemic diseases, to say nothing of the Great Patriotic War), one is best to go directly to factual archival data compiled by historians rather than falling for the deliberately exaggerated claims by those who seek to use this author to undermine Russia.
The following excerpts from “Slavic Tragedy” (Slavianskaia tragediia), a chapter in Russia in Collapse, will demonstrate why some journalists in his homeland referred to Solzhenitsyn’s words—from his comments about the Church to the question of language—as “prophetic.” And why the West’s favorite Soviet-era dissident has become so geopolitically inconvenient as of late will also become clear.

* "Ukraine: Truth Has Been Murdered" (2015-04-28, []:
The Western media has created a fictional account of events in Ukraine. The coup organized by the Obama regime that overthrew the elected democratic government in Ukraine is never mentioned. The militias decked out in Nazi symbols are ignored. These militias are the principle source of the violence that has been inflicted on the Russian populations, resulting in the formation of the break-away republics. Instead of reporting this fact, the corrupt Western media delivers Washington’s propaganda that Russia has invaded and is annexing eastern and southern Ukraine. British and European politicians parrot Washington’s lies. The Western media is complicit in many war crimes covered up with lies, but the false story that the Western media has woven of Ukraine is the most audacious collection of lies yet. Truly, truth in the Western world has been murdered. There is no respect for truth in any Western capital. The coup in Ukraine is Washington’s effort to thrust a dagger into Russia’s heart. The recklessness of such a criminal act has been covered up by constructing a false reality of a people’s revolution against a corrupt and oppressive government. The world should be stunned that “bringing democracy” has become Washington’s cover for resurrecting a Nazi state. [end excerpt]

* "Victims of Communism Day" (2015-05-01, [], by Ilya Somin is Professor of Law at George Mason University. His research focuses on constitutional law, property law, and popular political participation. [begin excerpt]:
May Day began as a holiday for socialists and labor union activists, not just communists. But over time, the date was taken over by the Soviet Union and other communist regimes and used as a propaganda tool to prop up their [authority]. I suggest that we instead use it as a day to commemorate those regimes’ millions of victims. The authoritative Black Book of Communism estimates the total at 80 to 100 million dead, greater than that caused by all other twentieth century tyrannies combined.
The main alternative to May 1 is November 7, the anniversary of the communist coup in Russia. However, choosing that date might be interpreted as focusing exclusively on the Soviet Union, while ignoring the equally horrendous communist mass murders in China, Cambodia, and elsewhere. So May 1 is the best choice.
Our relative neglect of communist crimes carries a real cost. Victims of Communism Day can serve the dual purpose of appropriately commemorating the millions of victims, and diminishing the likelihood that such atrocities will recur. Just as Holocaust Memorial Day and other such commemorations help sensitize us to the dangers of racism, anti-Semitism, and radical nationalism, so Victims of Communism Day can increase awareness of the dangers of far left forms of totalitarianism, and extreme government control of the economy and civil society.
In a 2012 post, I explained why May 1 is a better date for Victims of Communism Day than the available alternatives, such as November 7 (the anniversary of the Bolshevik seizure of power in Russia) and August 23 (the anniversary of the Nazi-Soviet Pact). I also addressed the objection that it would be wrong to take May Day away from non-communist socialists and trade union activists. [end excerpt]

The USA is officially on a campaign to redeem the narrative for the Vietnam War, and propagandists are chosen who are trained to censor USA warcrimes and official support for narcotics trade and criminal cartels who, basically, ruled the economy of the old administration over southern Vietnam, which was so unpopular that it fell by 1975 to an internal uprising, despite military support by the USA, which killed at least 3 million civilians during the so-called "Vietnam War". The irony of the author's attention to the current Vietnam "re-education camps", is that so many Black Muslims and Black Panther political prisoners from the Northbay, as it is across the USA, are being given a permanent torture regime in Prison SHU rooms in order to "break their minds".
Hoo-ray for the USA! Never comparable to foreign governments, always better!
