"It was my first day in Cairo. I was lucky to find the right place to stay at the hotel, which was facing Tahrir Square—it was my first impression of it. From the balcony, I saw the overcrowded space—thousands and thousands of people—and some of them were helping a man who had lost consciousness. I never had a chance to see what happened with him, but I’m pretty sure that people who were around helped him. That was the atmosphere on the ground; people really took care of each other even if they had different views about Egypt, about Cairo, about revolution. If you could see the picture in detail, you would see more than just young revolutionaries. You see old people, you see really religious people. Everyone was together, and that day was very, very special."Protests in Tahrir Square from TIME Picks Top 10 Photos from 2011

The Arab revolutions challenge every rotten aspect of capitalist ideology. Take the sectarian religious divisions which have wracked Egypt at times, with Copts (Christians) suffering murderous attacks. In Tahrir Square the divisions were overcome as the common goal of fighting for democracy took hold. Copts defended Muslims at their prayers from attack, and joint prayers of Copts and Muslims were held.


Take the position of women. Even some activists on the left in Western society have refused to defend the rights of women to wear Muslim clothing such as the hijab and the niqab.[7] They have argued that this form of dress makes women simply subordinate to men, unable to play an equal role. And just as in all capitalist societies, women are oppressed. Nevertheless women, veiled and unveiled, have played a prominent role in all the activities. One of my favourite images was of a young woman wearing a hijab, clutching a rock almost too big for her hand. She faced the cameras and threatened that if Mubarak’s thugs returned, they’d cop it! We’ve seen women giving speeches, leading chants, doing interviews with the international media, arguing, disputing, organising alongside men. We’ve heard their stories of how they felt safe from sexual violence for the first time among the masses in the square. Activist and blogger Mona Seif commented, “There was one Egypt inside Tahrir and another Egypt outside.”[8] The old, oppressive attitudes were pushed aside by the desire for solidarity in the struggle.

Palestinian Resistance: an icon for those who long to live free

As Palestinians bleed and burn in darkness without water, shelter, adequate food or medicine under Israel’s barbaric onslaught, Israeli propaganda is blasting full force across the world, western media in particular, and the usual list of US politicians and media moguls are eager participants. The central theme is to blame the victims. They are cynical, surreal sound bites that many people swallow wholesale, unquestioningly.

The ever faithful to Israel, Bill Clinton, summarized Israeli talking points, saying “[Hamas has] a strategy to force Israel to kill their own civilians.”  Perhaps Clinton is trying to lay some political groundwork with AIPAC for his wife’s run for the presidency, but the abject cynicism of such a statement smacks of the worst propaganda since Goebbles.  It’s the equivalent of saying a woman in a tight dress is forcing men to rape her. No one is forcing Israel to kill unarmed civilians in their homes. No one is forcing them to bomb hospitals, rehabilitation centers, water treatment plants, bakeries, or children playing soccer on the beach.  They’re doing it all on their own. Willfully and deliberately. They are using guns and bombs and planes and warships and drones and snipers of their own volition against a defenseless civilian population in one of the most densely populated places on earth. Together with Egypt, they have besieged all borders, so there is no place for people to run or take cover. There is just no refuting this simple fact.

Students for Palestine Stunt: Oppose the media's pro-Israel bias | Facebook

The death toll from Israel’s attack on Gaza has reached 1,400 and is still climbing. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced that Israel is committed to continuing and extending the ground invasion while collective punishment is dealt to Palestinian civilians from the skies. Despite what is blatantly an act of genocide and ethnic cleansing, the media in Australia has consistently distorted, whitewashed and covered up the atrocities in Gaza. Join Students for Palestine activists in a die-in on Friday the 8th of August to protest against the media’s complicity in Israel’s crimes. Secret location to be announced.

Libertarian: Communism would be great in theory but people are too corrupt and self serving to handle it
Libertarian: that's why we should use a system that rewards greed and encourages exploitation
Libertarian: because people are too corrupt
Libertarian: this system should be completely unregulated and just allow people to do whatever horrible things they want as long as it gets them money
Libertarian: corruption ok???

Palestine supporters shut down Max Brenner in Newtown (1 August 2014)

Friday 1 August, 2014

With over 1,300 civilians killed in Israel’s assault on Gaza,
Palestine solidarity activists in Sydney, Australia occupied a
Max Brenner store in Newtown to protest Israel’s massacre
and the Australian government’s support for Israel’s crimes.

Max Brenner is owned by the Strauss Group, an Israeli 
company which provides support to the Golani and Givati 
brigades who are renowned for carrying out atrocities 
against Palestinians.

The store was successfully shut down.
