Reflections on the Political Crisis and Right-wing Populism (tags)
The policies of neoliberal globalization have driven an enormous strengthening of transnational corporations and finance capital, and at the same time the division between rich and poor, between the top "1%" and the rest of the "99%".
Opportunity instead of crises and End this madness! (tags)
Almost no one asks what an economic policy looks like that no longer subordinates everything to economic growth: How to reduce the debt mountain to a reasonable level without GDP growth? How can pensions be secured without GDP growth and employment be guaranteed?
Opportunity instead of crises and End this madness (tags)
History teaches that major course corrections usually emerge from crises. However, far-sighted economists and politicians should start thinking today about how to shape a future without debt crises, without ecological and social exploitation, and without compulsive growth.
New Prosperity. Is a paradigm-shift necessary given the limits of economic growth? (tags)
Politicians and economists have adhered to the principle of steady growth. One possible explanation may be that "central areas of society, politics and the economy.... are existentially dependent on constant growth"
Sanders Beats Trump and Trump Throws Dynamite in the Powder Keg (tags)
The final question remains: eyes, mouth, ears: are the Democrats imitating the three monkeys again or are they nominating Bernie Sanders? The future of the next four years depends on this decision - not only in the USA, but also in Europe and the world.

STOP THE POLITICAL PERSECUTIONS IN THE PHILIPPINES! (tags)
The Philippine Peasant Support Network (Pesante)-USA demands that the US-Arroyo regime free al political prisoners and quash all made up charges against activist in the Philippines! Although the Supreme Court ordered the release Randall Echanis, detained NDFP consultant and KMP deputy secretary general and a FQS activist, the US-Arroyo regime has failed to quash its made-up charges against those with warrants of arrest. More than 20 NDF consultants and peace advocates and at least 200 activists has been languishing in jail since the breakdown of the peace talks four years ago. More than 80 people are in the regime’s “wanted list".
FREE RANDALL ECHANIS, IMPLEMENT THE JASIG TO RESUME PEACE TALKS NOW! (tags)
The Philippine Peasant Support Network (Pesante)-USA again raise the demand for the US-Arroyo regime to free Randall Echanis. Until now the GRP has failed to release Randall Echanis ,detained NDFP consultant and KMP depurty secretary general and a FQS activist. The US-Arryo regime has failed to quash its made-up charges against those with warrants of arrest. Echanis has been languishing in jail together with other NDF consultants since the breakdown of the peace talks four years ago. For Pesante-USA, this is a major obstacle to the resumption to the peace talks between te NDFP and the GRP. This is a major indication that the GRP wants to scuttle the Oslo meeting. This is blatant and obvious attempt of the GRP and the US-Arroyo regime and the militarist in the AFP to freeze in the Supreme Court the question of releasing Randall Echanis and to make difficult or impossible the release of other detained NDFP consultants.
PESANTE CONDEMNS JR 19 OF PHILIPPINE CONGRESS (tags)
“Cats with gloves cannot catch mice” The Philippine Peasant Support Network (Pesante)-USA vehemently condemns the anti-peasant Joint Resolution No. 19. Passed by the Philippine Congress before it went to its Christmas season recess. Pesante-USA stands with and wholeheartedly support the walk-out of progressive party list members and their principled opposition to the landlord schemes. ( Below is the full text of the progressive party list statement) After more than twenty years of sham land reform we contemptuously called “BIGAY-BAWI”, the ruling clique of the US-Arroyo regime who are prime despotic landlords in their respective areas, consolidated their hold like the landlords of El Salvador and Colombia and really are counter-revolutionaries at heart.

Four More American Drug Planes Seized (tags)
Coincidentally or not, the American owners of the four planes (like the two busted earlier) were largely people and companies with 'special relationships' with U.S. political movers and shakers like John McCain donors, including the CIA and the U.S. Dept. of Homeland Security.
The CPP-NPA-NDF “Hit List” - a preliminary report (tags)
It is essential to understand the real scope of the assassination policy of Left activists pursued, after the 1992 crisis, by the Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP), its military arm, the New People’s Army (NPA) and its politico-diplomatic arm, the National Democratic Front (NDF).
Angels Don't Play This HAARP e-book by Begich and Manning (tags)
This is Jeane Manning and Nick Begich's explosive book Angels Don't Play This HAARP - Advances in Tesla Technology (2004) which exposes the "dark" side of one of the most ambitious high-tech projects ever built on american soil - the HAARP facility in Alaska. The U.S. Government has a new ground-based "Star Wars" weapon which is being tested in the remote bush country of Alaska. Controlled by "Big Oil" HAARP is blasting billions of watts of high frequency microwave energy at our protective ionospheric shell which surrounds the earth. As the authors explain, this new system manipulates the environment in a way which can: disrupt human mental processes, jam all global communications systems, change weather patterns over large areas, interfere with wildlife migration patterns, negatively affect your health and unnaturally impact the Earth's upper atmosphere. The U.S. military calls its zapper HAARP (High-frequency Active Auroral Research Project) but this skybuster is not about the Northern Lights. This mysterious device will turn on lights never intended to be artificially manipulated. Their first target is the electrojet - a river of electricity that flows thousands of miles through the sky and down into the polar icecap. It will become a vibrating artificial antenna for sending electromagnetic radiation raining down on the earth. The military can then "X-ray" the earth and talk to submarines. But there's much more they can do with HAARP. Several acres of Alaskan land have been dedicated to its construction but it's real purpose runs from the practical (X-ray the earth to look for enemy submarines and secret underground bases) through the hard to believe (transmission of electrical power without wires - Tesla's wireless) through the insane (the complete disruption of global communications and mucking with weather patterns by shifting the jet stream). This unique book is so well documented, often citing documents published by the US government itself, that it is absolutely convincing and frightening. As a front-cover story, HAARP began to be revealed in September 1995. This amazing book is the rest of the story. And remember - their offical reason for building HAARP is "to see what it does". 220 pages, many pictures. A must read for everyone.
Lift terror tag, we talk' --NDF (tags)
Communist rebels are willing to resume peace talks, but only if the government initiates the dropping of the terror tag on the revolutionary movement, exiled Communist Party of the Philippines (CPP) chairman Jose Ma. Sison said yesterday. Sison said they would only return to the negotiating table when the government moves to have the CPP and the New People’s Army (NPA) stricken off the lists of foreign terrorist organizations drawn up by the United States and the European Union. Sison said the government must also show it is sincere about stopping the military from carrying out extrajudicial killings, while also indemnifying victims of human rights violations.

German Greens, Conservatives draw closer together (tags)
Last week, the conservative Christian Democratic Party (CDU) and the free-market liberal Free Democratic Party (FDP) started official talks aimed at forming a new coalition government in the state of Baden-Württemberg, after elections were held there at the end of March. Both parties aim to agree on a coalition pact by May 6. The state’s premier, Günther Oettinger (CDU), made this announcement two days before the CDU’s parliamentary faction was due to meet. The CDU had previously held two meetings each with the FDP and the Green Party to assess the possibilities of forming a coalition government. The discussions with the Greens signified yet a further convergence between the two parties and will undoubtedly be viewed in the not-too-distant future as a preparation for the first CDU-Green state government.
