On December 5th France’s long, long, LONG-awaited General Strike against austerity measures began, and it was a huge success: 90% of trains were shut down nationwide, there was an unprecedented walk out by teachers, and as many as 1.5 million people marched despite temperatures near zero. And yet the march in Paris was a total failure. For nearly four hours I watched perhaps 500 Black Bloc members hijack the front of the march and stop an estimated 250,000 people from moving. Just 500 unarmed Black Bloc – not battle-hardened, insane Daesh terrorists – stopped a quarter million people from advancing for FOUR hours!

The document that will be made public after the Normandy Four (Russia, France, Germany, Ukraine) summit will not include any ambitious objectives, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadim Pristayko said on Tuesday on the sidelines of the NATO Engages conference in London. "To tell you the truth, the document is not very ambitious, but rather very cautious. At the moment, the document envisages emphasizing the achivements," the Evropeyskaya Pravada newspaper quoted Pristayko as saying.

France and Germany recently decided to share the presidency of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC), and jointly do the agenda-setting and public communication tasks it involves, over the next two months. What could be an important symbol appears, however, more like a smokescreen to conceal the two partners’ skirmishes over their respective UN seats. France is one of the five permanent members of the UNSC, with all the privileges that brings, including a veto on any decisions it opposes. Germany has recently been elected to a two-year, non-permanent seat on the Council, with no special privileges.

1. Ukraine is the largest nation in Europe, with a 1400 mile land border with Russia. The U.S. government under administrations since Bill Clinton’s has sought to integrate Ukraine into the anti-Russian NATO military alliance. 2. NATO is an artifact of the early Cold War and the Truman Doctrine, vowing any means necessary to stop the spread of Communism. Founded in 1949, when the U.S. ruled most of the world, it included most of the countries of Europe except for those liberated from Nazism by the Soviets, including Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria and Romania, and Yugoslavia and Albania where anti-fascist partisans seized power...

By Nick Riemer - The recent mosque shooting in Bayonne was just the latest violent attack against France’s Muslims. The secularist left has long rejected the idea of “Islamophobia” — but as the far right goes mainstream, Muslims’ calls for solidarity have become impossible to ignore.

Zionist groups tried and failed to stop Pro-Palestinian Israeli activist Miko Peled from giving a lecture at Milan University in Itay. My lecture at the University of Milan was scheduled for the afternoon of October 9, 2019. That morning the university president, pressured by a local Zionist group, decided to cancel the lecture. The excuse given was that the lecture was scheduled on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur and this offended the “Jewish community.” The student organization that put together the event, Fuori Luogo, notified me that I should still come and that the event would take place as planned.

Europe is crumbling, & Britain’s elite desperately want to be part of the wreckage. Brexit isn’t going to happen. Left or Right – Lexit or Rexit – it’s over. It’s time to make peace with that idea. Penned in by the absurd Benn Act, No Deal is off the table, which means Britain will be forced to either remain or accept a deal that’s Remain by another name. The Letwin Ammendment and Johnson’s unsigned extension request are just morbid theatre. Unneccasary nails in a well-sealed coffin.

As Catalans are imprisoned for democratic efforts guaranteed by the UN, the EU should be condemned for ignoring an obvious breach of human rights, says Craig Murray. The vicious jail sentences handed down today by the fascists (I used the word with care and correctly) of the Spanish Supreme Court to the Catalan political prisoners represent a stark symbol of the nadir of liberalism within the EU. That an attempt to organize a democratic vote for the Catalan people in pursuit of the right of self-determination guaranteed in the UN Charter, can lead to such lengthy imprisonment, is a plain abuse of the most basic of human rights.

Against seemingly all the odds, we have a new Brexit deal. As an apparent vindication of UK prime minister Boris Johnson’s strategy to ramp up the threat of a no-deal departure from the EU and to force concessions from Brussels, one would imagine that Number 10 is rather happy right now. But that happiness will be tempered with caution, because some major issues lie ahead.

In an extraordinary session of the House of Commons, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has just been forced to request a delay to Brexit by 322 votes to 306.

India has a claim over the cordial Senhor Costa, whose father Orlando da Costa was a writer from the former Portuguese colony of Goa and a communist activist who fought against the dictatorship in Portugal, was harassed by the secret service and thrown in prison several times; his books were banned. António Costa’s politics has contemporary relevance for India insofar as he has bucked the trend of declining fortunes for Europe’s centre-left. While on campaign trail, Costa toured through Portugal, traveling along National Road 2, which cuts across the country from the mountainous north on the border with Spain and ended up in the south in Faro, 700 kilometers away on the beaches of the Algarve. It was a masterstroke. The trip gave voters and Costa the possibility to communicate with each other their concerns directly

Eva Bartlett traveled to the besieged Donetsk People’s Republic to see firsthand how residents are faring amidst a western-backed Ukrainian incursion. On September 2, I left the southern Russian city of Rostov-on-Don via minibus heading northwest to the border of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and on into Donetsk. For my first few days there, I rented an inexpensive apartment in the heart of the city. Walking on a long tree-lined and cafe-filled pedestrian walkway, life seemed normal. But I would soon find that for the people living in Donetsk, it is anything but.

They bleat about a hard Irish border, but they`re the ones who could be risking the return of paramilitary violence. This week will be crucial for the Brexit process. On Thursday and Friday, the European Council (which gathers the 28 heads of state/government of the European Union member states) will meet in Brussels. The hottest topic on the agenda will be whether the EU will be able to strike a deal with the UK, which is set to leave the bloc on October 31. This deadline has already been postponed twice since it was initially supposed to take place on March 29.

The “Moldavian Vedomosti” newspaper continues to monitor the strengthening of relations between Moldova and NATO. “Next week in Chisinau a group of English servicemen from the British Military Advisory Training Team (BMATT) will arrive there. In Moldova they will give classes for younger officer and non-commissioned officers in the Alexandru cel Bun Military Academy and also at the Bulboaca training ground, which is in close proximity to Transnistria,” reports the newspaper. According to the agency, 30 Moldovan soldiers were selected for training with English instructors. The selection was very strict – it is necessary to be fluent in English, not to have relatives in Russia (a mandatory requirement from the British side), and to have experience in participating in peacekeeping operations or in international military exercises.

For nearly four years, Katharina von Schnurbein has been posing as a champion of Europe’s Jews. If taken at face value, her speeches at numerous conferences suggest she is a conscientious civil servant motivated by a desire to halt persecution. A more detailed examination reveals she has been following an agenda set by Israel and its supporters. The real objective of this agenda has been to muzzle the Palestine solidarity movement. Von Schnurbein was appointed the European Union’s first coordinator against anti-Semitism in December 2015. The idea for such a post did not originate within the Brussels bureaucracy.
