Guantánamo, concentré d’impérialisme, par Sébastien Gillard (Le Monde diplomatique, octobre 2017)

 En 1898, les États-Unis « libèrent » Cuba, dans le cadre de la guerre
qui les oppose à la couronne espagnole. Mais l’île ne se libère de son
statut de colonie hispanique que pour passer sous protectorat américain.
Par Sébastien Gillard.

 By maintaining a form of domination and subjugation over the
Palestinians that prevents them from freely determining their political
status, Israel violates the right of the
Palestinian people to self-determination inasmuch as it is unable to
exercise its sovereignty on the territory which belongs to it.

Anglo-American 1957 Secret Plan to Assassinate the Syrian President. Déjà Vu? | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

 PROF. MICHEL CHOSSUDOVSKY: The secret 1957 Plan called for the funding
of a so-called “Free Syria Committee” equivalent to today’s Syrian
National Council (SNC). It also
involved “the arming of “political factions with paramilitary or other
actionist capabilities” within Syria. Under the plan, the CIA together
with Britain’s Secret Intelligence Serivce (SIS) “would instigate
internal uprisings”.

Europa kann nicht mehr wegsehen! - F.A.Z. PLUS:

#catalunyareferendum

Europe can no longer look elsewhere!

Carme Forcadell

We are Catalans, we are Europeans, we are European. Catalonia has
always felt itself identified with the values of peace, freedom and
justice that impregnated European construction in its origins. But
today, an important part of Catalan society is wondering when the
European institutions will continue to obviate the flagrant violation of
fundamental rights that is taking place in one of the member states of
the European Union.

The police violence against Catalan citizens
on October 1 is the peak of the repressive spiral of Spain to try to
stop, without success, the exercise of the right to self-determination
in Catalonia. People of all ages and ideologies, who only wanted to vote
and decide the political future of their country, were victims of
unjustifiable violence by the police.

It was, until then, the
culmination of an escalation that includes complaints against the
Catalan Government and the intervention of its finances, complaints
against the majority of the Parliament's table, threats against more
than 700 mayors, suspension of acts on the referendum , the closure of
more than 140 web pages, and the arrest of senior officials and
employees of the Catalan Government.

But in spite of everything,
on October 1, more than 2.2 million people voted, 90% of whom voted in
favor of independence. Although polls were requisitioned, despite
threats and violence, citizens issued a democratic mandate that the
Catalan government's president, Carles Puigdemont, assumed. But it
suspended its effects temporarily to prioritize the dialogue, the hand
Extended and international mediation.

The Spanish president,
Mariano Rajoy, has a historic disjunctive: continue with judicialization
and repression, or choose the way of dialogue. Continue with
complaints, interrogations and arrests, or decide once and for all to
face politically what is a political conflict.

Regrettably, the
answer remains to ignore the policy. The Spanish government has
initiated the procedures to suspend, even more, self-government in
Catalonia and acquire its competencies.

The State, in addition,
responded with a serious attack on the appeal to President Puigdemont's
dialogue. The two leaders of the socialist social organizations,
responsible for some of the most massive mobilizations in Europe, always
peaceful, have been imprisoned accused of sedition. Innocent people can
spend up to 4 years in jail without trial, accused of a crime they have
not committed, by a court that does not even have the powers to do so.


Yes, in the European Union there are political prisoners. Yes, there
are political prisoners in Spain. There are demons jailed for their
ideas. In view of this fact, the response of the European institutions
can not be said to be a simple internal affair.

Because the
future of Europe also happens, inevitably, for Catalonia. The
credibility of the European project as an area of freedom and democracy
is at stake with the response to the democratic democratic process and
the repressive spiral of the Spanish State. Europe can not look any
further towards the other side. They violate the fundamental rights
contained in the Treaty on European Union, and it is the obligation of
the European institutions to guarantee these rights. What is the level
of repression you are willing to tolerate? Until when?

I do not
have the answers to these questions. Yes, I have, in contrast, the
answer that will be given by Catalan society. He will continue advancing
democratically and, above all, peacefully, to build his future with
freedom.

A single sentence at the end of the Constitution would have solved the Catalan question forever. (It can still be added)

In the Repeal Provision, item 2, annulled laws of the nineteenth century that restricted in a certain way the historical fueros of Álava, Guipúzcoa and Vizcaya, a consequence of the 1st Carlist War annulled a law of the Second Carlist War, which constrained the Covenants between the historic Kingdom of Navarre and the Spanish State. So that the Basque Historical Territories recovered their economic concerts and Navarre, its Old Fueros. Instead of elaborating a Statute of Autonomy, Navarra drafted an Act (Organic for the Spanish State) of Reintegration and Improvement of Jurisdiction. In fact Navarre works as a federal state to Spain.
But there was a tremendous failure: they did not annul Decrees of century XVIII, consequence of the War of Succession, that they had suppressed the Historical Forces of Catalonia, Aragon, Baleares and Valencia.

Spanish Constitution 1978
Repeal provision:
2. Insofar as it could maintain some validity, the Law of October 25, 1839 is considered definitively repealed in what could affect the provinces of Alava, Guipúzcoa and Vizcaya.
In the same terms, the Law of July 21, 1876 is definitively repealed.
(It could be added: "In the same terms, the Decrees of New Plant of Catalonia, Aragon, Baleares and Valencia are considered definitively repealed")

As seen in the image, in 1702, the Corts de Catalunya approved and Philip V of Castile and IV of Aragon sanctioned, the Fourth Compilation of the Catalan Forces (Constitutions, Captains and Actes de Corts). Thirteen years later, after the War of Succession, Felipe V, by means of decrees of despotism not very illustrated, suppresses the Charter of Catalonia, Aragon, Valencia and Baleares, but not those of Navarre.
So today Navarra is not an Autonomous Community, but Foral; it works in fact as a federated state to the Spanish state; a situation that could have today Catalonia, if had taken into account the happy phrase that I have commented. Navarra has its own tax system, collects its taxes and pays with the Government of Spain the "Donation", that is the contribution that corresponds each year to the maintenance of the expenses of the state, present in the General Budgets.

The Iraqi federal government commenced a military intervention in the
Kurdish-occupied oil-rich city of Kirkuk. This area has long been
disputed between the Iraqi central
authorities and the Kurdish Regional Government of Northern Iraq, and
Article 140 of the post-2003 US-imposed “constitution” decreed that a
referendum was supposed to have been held here before 2008. Such a vote
never took place due to the country’s dire security situation and
misplaced priorities at the time, but the Kurdish-claimed city take part
in a different referendum last month when they voted for independence
from Iraq. [ 451 more words ]

Youth Suicides Reach Record High In The UK - TruePublica

Youth Suicides Reach Record High In The UK - TruePublica

 

 

By Alice Summers – wsws.orgAccording
to a study by the Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR), 134
students committed suicide in the 2014-15 academic year. This figure, an
all-time high, represents an increase of 79 percent since 2007, when 75
students took their own lives.


 


The IPPR’s research findings come amid a worsening mental health
crisis in the UK and worldwide, which is particularly affecting young
people under the age of 25. Approximately one-in-four people in the UK
suffer from a mental health condition each year, with around
three-quarters of adults with a mental illness first experiencing
symptoms before the age of 25, according to the report.


The proportion of 16-to-24-year-olds experiencing a mental health
condition in England is rising, with 19 percent in this age group
suffering from some form of mental health problem, up from 15 percent in
2003. Young women under 25 are hit hardest by the mental health crisis,
with 28 percent affected.

 On October 6, some of America’s top political scientists gathered at
Yale University to answer these questions. And nearly everyone agreed:
American democracy is eroding on
multiple fronts — socially, culturally, and economically. The scholars
pointed to breakdowns in social cohesion (meaning citizens are more
fragmented than ever), the rise of tribalism, the erosion of democratic
norms such as a commitment to rule of law, and a loss of faith in the
electoral and economic systems as clear signs of democratic erosion.
