Nicaragua goes to ICJ against the German government for its facilitation of Israel's genocide in the besieged Gaza

globinfo freexchange   The International Court of Justice heard oral arguments from Nicaragua, which has brought a case against Germany alleging that in providing political, financial & military support to Israel, Germany is facilitating the commission of genocide & has failed in its obligation to prevent genocide.   Nicaragua also alleges Germany is facilitating Israel's serious breaches of IHL & other peremptory norms of general international law in Gaza, including Palestinians' right to self-determination and right to not be subjected to a regime of apartheid. Nicaragua has requested provisional measures against Germany, including an order that Germany shall: -- immediately suspend aid to Israel, in particular military assistance; -- immediately make efforts to ensure that weapons already delivered are not used to facilitate genocide; -- reverse its decision to defund UNRWA; -- cooperate to bring to an end the serious breaches of peremptory norms of internationa

Meet Centuria, Ukraine’s Western-trained neo-Nazi army

A uniquely Ukrainian strain of Neo-Nazism is spreading throughout Europe, which openly advocates violence against minorities while seeking new recruits. With Kiev’s army collapsing and a narrative of Western betrayal gaining currency, the horror inflicted on residents of Donbas for a decade could very soon be coming to a city near you.   by Kit Klarenberg   Part 1 Centuria, an ultra-violent Ukrainian Neo-Nazi faction, has cemented itself in six cities across Germany, and is seeking to expand its local presence. According to Junge Welt , a Berlin-based Marxist daily, the Nazi organization’s growth has been “ unhindered by local security services. ” Junge Welt traces Centuria’s origins to an August 2020 Neo-Nazi summit “ at the edge of a forest near Kiev. ” There, an ultranationalist named Igor “Tcherkas” Mikhailenko demanded the “ hundreds of mostly masked vigilante fighters present, ” who were members Kiev’s fascistic National Militia, “ make sacrifices for the idea of ‘Greater Ukraine

Iran had legal right to counter-attack Israel in self-defense

Geopolitical Economy Report   Israel attacked Iran's embassy in Syria on April 1, in a blatant act of war. Iran had a legal right to respond in self-defense, according to article 51 of the UN Charter, which is exactly what it did by launching missiles and drone strikes on April 13. But Western governments are absurdly portraying Tehran as the aggressor. Ben Norton explains.

Germany again on a dark path towards fascism

globinfo freexchange   The long repression of pro-Palestinian voices in Germany reached a peak last Friday. In an unprecedented action, German police shut down the Palestine Congress, a vital event to unite activists around a ceasefire for Gaza. They detained participants, including Jewish activists; they deported a Palestinian speaker. And then they banned Yanis Varoufakis, not only from making political speeches in Germany, but also from doing so over Zoom (!). These authoritarian moves make it clear: Germany is intent on silencing anyone who speaks out against its complicity in Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza.   Yanis Varoufakis BANNED by Germany's Interior Ministry from carrying out any political activity in Germany. They're so desperate to silence anyone who dares speak out against Germany's complicity in the ongoing genocide in Gaza.

House Dems, GOP Team Up to Expand Warrantless Spying on Americans

The U.S. House on Friday passed legislation to expand a major mass spying authority after voting down a bipartisan push to attach a search warrant requirement to the heavily abused surveillance law. The bill to reauthorize Section 702 of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) for two years passed by a vote of 273-147, with 59 Democrats and 88 Republicans voting no. More Democrats voted for the bill than Republicans. With Section 702 set to expire next Friday, the legislation now heads to the U.S. Senate. "Despite a litany of abuse—improper snooping on protesters, lawmakers, thousands of campaign donors, and journalists—the House today wrote the FBI and intelligence agencies a blank check to keep misusing FISA Section 702," said Jake Laperruque, deputy director on surveillance at the Center for Democracy & Technology.  Full report: Related: "Training" soci

Day 1828: After five years, Julian Assange still in prison and under slow-motion execution by the Anglo-American imperialist criminals

failed evolution   On 11 April 2019, the Ecuadorian government of traitor Lenin Moreno, invited the Metropolitan Police into the Ecuadorian embassy in London, and they arrested Julian Assange . Since then, Assange is kept in Belmarsh high security prison in London, without actual charges.   The real reason world's number one political prisoner is still kept in this high security prison, is because he exposed horrendous war crimes carried out by the US imperialists and their allies.   The ruthless Western imperialist regime wants to punish the No1 real journalist in the world and make him an example for any Whistleblower or real journalist who will attempt to expose its big crimes in the future.   And the Anglo-American axis has now become officially a fascist coalition , framed by the rest of its Western pets. UK's Home Secretary Priti Patel, one of the most ruthless ever, decided to extradite Julian Assange to US. No surprise of course. The only question we had in mind is

Russia’s FSB chief says US, Britain, Ukraine behind Moscow attack

The director of Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB), Alexander Bortnikov, said on Tuesday (26 March) that the United States, Britain and Ukraine were behind the Moscow concert hall attack that killed at least 139 people on Friday, state news agency TASS reported.   Ukraine has denied Russian accusations of involvement in the attack, for which the Islamic State militant group claimed responsibility. Western countries have said their intelligence indicates that ISIS-K, Islamic State’s Afghan offshoot, was responsible.  Russian President Vladimir Putin acknowledged on Monday that last week’s deadly attack was carried out by Islamic militants, but suggested it was also to the benefit of Ukraine and that Kyiv may have played a role. Fresh accusations from the secretary of Russia’s security council that Kyiv was responsible for a deadly attack in Moscow on Friday are lies, senior Ukrainian presidential aide Mykhailo Podolyak said on X.

"Genocidal Machine": Dr. Ghassan Abu-Sittah on Israel's Destruction of Gaza's Hospitals

Democracy Now!   Israeli forces withdrew from Al-Shifa Hospital in Gaza City today after a two-week raid that has left most of the medical complex in ruins. Since October, Gaza's health sector has been completely decimated, leaving only a dozen hospitals partially functional as the entire medical infrastructure is relentlessly shelled, besieged and raided.    Democracy Now! spoke with British Palestinian reconstructive surgeon Ghassan Abu-Sittah, who spent over a month treating patients at Al-Shifa and Al-Ahli Baptist hospitals. He pays tribute to Dr. Ahmad Maqadmeh, a fellow surgeon that was found killed today alongside his mother at Al-Shifa.    " I blame the Western journalists, who perpetuated the narrative that militarized the hospital as a justifiable and acceptable target, " says Abu-Sittah about Maqadmeh's death. " This was a war Israel declared on Palestinian children, " he later concludes, " because Palestinian children represent the Palestin

Η μαύρη επταετία του καθεστώτος Μητσοτάκη

globinfo freexchange   Όπως έχουμε ήδη αναφέρει σε προηγούμενο άρθρο , η παντοδυναμία του καθεστώτος Μητσοτάκη στηρίζεται σε πήλινα πόδια. Τώρα, σε κανονικές συνθήκες, (έτσι βέβαια όπως τις αντιλαμβάνονται τα κέντρα αποφάσεων της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης), οι γραφειοφασίστες των Βρυξελλών και το διευθυντήριο του Βερολίνου φροντίζουν όλο και πιο συχνά να διαμηνύουν στις κυβερνήσεις ότι "το πάρτι τελείωσε".  Αυτό σημαίνει καταρχήν σκληρή λιτότητα. Και επειδή κανείς δεν ξέρει στην πραγματικότητα πόσο χρήμα μοιράστηκε στην προηγούμενη θητεία Μητσοτάκη, πάνω και κάτω από το τραπέζι, προς διάφορες κατευθύνσεις, προκειμένου το καθεστώς να ανανεώσει το ραντεβού του με την εξουσία, είναι πολύ πιθανό να αρχίσει να εμφανίζεται στον ορίζοντα ένας σοβαρός εκτροχιασμός των δημοσιονομικών στόχων και άρα των πολύ σκληρών όρων που επιβλήθηκαν στην κυβέρνηση Τσίπρα με αντάλλαγμα τη ρύθμιση του χρέους.

April 1st 1957: the day Western mainstream media officially became masters of propaganda through a seemingly innocent April Fools' Day joke

globinfo freexchange  In 1957, BBC conducted a very interesting experiment. The spaghetti-tree hoax was a three-minute hoax report broadcast on April Fools' Day 1957 by the BBC current-affairs programme Panorama , purportedly showing a family in southern Switzerland harvesting spaghetti from the family "spaghetti tree". At the time spaghetti was relatively little known in the UK, so that many Britons were unaware that it is made from wheat flour and water; a number of viewers afterwards contacted the BBC for advice on growing their own spaghetti trees. Decades later, CNN called this broadcast " the biggest hoax that any reputable news establishment ever pulled ". This "innocent" farce showed dramatically the unimaginable power of TV and the mainstream media to shape massively the minds of millions. Earlier, Freud's young nephew, Edward Bernays, had set the foundations of modern propaganda. It is worth to add that the te

Hamas: How Israel created its own nemesis

The Real News Network   Hamas, like all resistance groups, from the African National Congress to The Irish Republic Army, are as demonized as they are misunderstood. Hamas is a religious, nationalist political movement. It is not, despite what Israel and Washington say, a terrorist organization—although, like most resistance groups (including the Jewish militias that created the state of Israel), it has used terrorism as a tactic.    Because those on the outside do not understand what went into making Hamas—the steady drip of humiliation, violence, and impoverishment that define Israel’s Occupation of the Palestinians—Hamas and its ideology appears incomprehensible. But from the Palestinian perspective, Israel has left the Palestinians with no other choice.    Journalist and historian Paola Caridi, author of "Hamas: From Resistance to Regime," joins The Chris Hedges Report to discuss the roots and nature of Hamas, and what we miss when we unthinkingly cast Hamas as nothing m

Intel Brags of $152 Billion in Stock Buybacks Over Last 35 Years. So Why Does It Need an $8 Billion Subsidy?

Intel, the largest chip maker in America, with 2023 revenues of $54 billion, has just been awarded an $8.5 billion grant from the federal CHIPS and Science Act, plus $11 billion in favorable loans. In addition to badly needed microchips, Intel produces totally useless stock buybacks. On its website the company proudly proclaims to have spent $152 billion on stock buybacks since 1990. That’s not a typo: $152,000,000,000. Which is why I call it "Stock Buybacks Я Us." Intel took $152 billion of its revenues, some portion of which could have been used for R&D and building new microchip facilities in the U.S. as well as paying workers more, and instead funneled it to its largest Wall Street stockholders and corporate executives, enriching the top fraction of the top one percent.  A company repurchasing its own shares sees earnings per share rise because there are fewer shares in circulation. Share prices rise, though nothing new is made, and the largest stockholders, including

Rights expert finds ‘reasonable grounds’ genocide is being committed in Gaza

Francesca Albanese was speaking at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, where she presented her latest report, entitled ‘Anatomy of a Genocide’, during an interactive dialogue with Member States. “ Following nearly six months of unrelenting Israeli assault on occupied Gaza, it is my solemn duty to report on the worst of what humanity is capable of, and to present my findings, ” she said. “ There are reasonable grounds to believe that the threshold indicating the commission of the crime of genocide…has been met. ”   Citing international law, Ms. Albanese explained that genocide is defined as a specific set of acts committed with the intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnic, racial or religious group. “ Specifically, Israel has committed three acts of genocide with the requisite intent, causing seriously serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group, deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in w

Failed ICJ Case Against Russia Backfires, Paves Way for Genocide Charges Against Ukraine

by Kit Klarenberg  Part 3 - Kiev goes in for the kill   The ICJ has now effectively confirmed that the entire mainstream narrative of what happened in Crimea and Donbas over the previous decade was fraudulent. Some legal scholars have argued Ukraine’s acquittal on charges of genocide to be inevitable. Yet, many statements made by Ukrainian nationalists since Maidan unambiguously indicate such an intent. Moreover, in June 2020, a British immigration court granted asylum to Ukrainian citizens who fled the country to avoid conscription. They successfully argued that military service in Donbas would necessarily entail perpetrating and being implicated in “ acts contrary to the basic rules of human conduct ” – in other words, war crimes – against the civilian population. The Court’s ruling noted the Ukrainian military routinely engaged in “ unlawful capture and detention of civilians with no legal or military justification…motivated by the need for ‘currency’ for prisoner exchanges. ” It ad

We will never forget, never forgive what the NATO criminals did to Yugoslavia

On this day in 1999, NATO began bombing its illegal bombing campaign of Yugoslavia without permission from the UN Security Council. Between 1200-2500 civilians were killed and 5000 were wounded. During the 3 months of bombing, NATO dropped between 10-15 tonnes of depleted uranium bombs. After years of supporting right-wing nationalist forces to undermine and weaken the integrity of Yugoslavia, NATO begun its campaign to break up the socialist state. Though it claimed to be intervening to stop ethnic cleansing, the Assistant to US Secretary of Defense Strobe Talbott revealed the real reason for the war: "It was Yugoslavia's resistance to the broader trends of political and economic reform, not the plight of Kosovar Albanians, that best explains NATO's war.” NATO openly bragged about its destruction of Yugoslavia’s infrastructure, with its spokesperson Jaime Shea proudly saying in 1999 “And the fact that the lights went out in 70% of the country…we can turn the power off whe
