What's New: Dramatic shifts in the political and military situation in Ukraine

by Roger Annis | February 26, 2015

The backdrop to the dramatic events at Debaltseve is the ceasefire agreement reached on February 11 in Minsk, Belarus which went into force on the morning of Feb. 15. Several analyses of this agreement have already been published on New Cold, but a new one today by Alexander Mercouris in Russia Insider sheds important new light on the subject.

What's New: Social movements and the fall of Compaoré

| February 26, 2015

Blaise Compaoré became President of Burkino Faso in 1991 as a result of a coup in 1987 in which his predecessor Thomas Sankara died. In 2000 the opposition succeeded in amending the constitution to limit a President to two five year terms. In 2014 Compaoré attempted to change the constitution back to allow him to remain in power and was eventually forced from office in October 2014. Afriques en Lutte spoke to Burkina Faso specialist Lila Chouli about how the social movements led to the fall of Compaoré.

What's New: The SYRIZA Moment: A Skeptical Argument

by The Polemicist | February 26, 2015

The victory of Syriza in Greece is an important moment. Indeed, I think it is going to be a historic turning point for Europe and the world, for better or for worse. Syriza defines itself explicitly as "as a party of the democratic and radical Left," and radical it is. It's comprised of "many different ideological currents and left cultures," "has its roots in popular struggles for Greek independence, democracy and labour and anti-fascist movements," and includes serious and influential socialist, Marxist, and generally anti-capitalist currents.

What's New: A Different Kind of State

| February 25, 2015

Writer and researcher Michal Rozworski interviews Leo Panitch about the difficulties of working within political constraints while trying to transcend them, the role of international solidarity, and the importance of political organization. The interview took place last Thursday, just one day before Greece signed an agreement with the Eurogroup to extend, with modifications, its current bailout program for four months.

Bullet #1085: Breaking Out of the Invisible Prison

by John McMurtry | February 25, 2015

As we enter 2015, the global corporate system deepens and spreads in its eco-genocidal effects. But the dots are not joined in their common cause across domains. Money-value coordinates like gross domestic product (GDP), commodity productivity and stock market indexes are still adopted as the measures of "economic performance" rather than life capital development which is systemically depredated.

What's New: Week of austerity protests begins with downtown demo

by T'Cha Dunlevy | February 24, 2015

A week of protests against the Liberal government's austerity measures kicked off Sunday in Parc Émilie-Gamelin, where representatives from various social and community groups came together for the cause. "We're here today to denounce the hypocrisy and disdain of Education Minister Yves Bolduc for teachers, who for too long have been considered expendable," said Lucie Ste-Marie, a kindergarten teacher and spokesperson for Profs contre l'austérité, which organized the gathering.

Bullet #1084: Alberto Nisman's Death and AMIA: Who Cares About the Truth?

by Ezequiel Adamovsky; Atilio Boron | February 24, 2015

On 18 January the Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman was found dead in his apartment in Buenos Aires. A few days before he had returned from his vacations in Europe and presented a shocking and unexpected accusation. He claimed he had proof that President Cristina Kirchner and the Foreign Minister Hector Timerman were in the process of orchestrating a cover-up in the investigation of Iran over the 1994 bombing of AMIA.

What's New: Syriza buys four months of breathing room, but at what cost?

by Michal Rozworski | February 23, 2015

Greece's government must use the time to mobilize and build anti-austerity links at home and abroad. Assuming its plan of reforms is accepted by the Eurogroup on Monday, Greece's Syriza government has gained four months of breathing room -- albeit in the same stuffy space, already full of the nauseating fumes of austerity, the window barely cracked.
