text Open letter to Bloomberg News re Loretta Lynch and the ICTR - by Ann Garrison
Bloomberg News is one of many outlets praising Loretta Lynch, President Obama's Attorney General nominee, for her work at the International Criminal Tribunal on Rwanda (ICTR). However, the ICTR was a court for victor's justice, used to fortify the lies about the Rwandan war and civilian massacres of the 1990s. These lies have been used to justify nearly 20 more years of war, conflict, and resource theft in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and the death of millions more Rwandan and Congol...

The Mexican federal governments is like a child with its eyes closed, plugging its ears with index fingers chanting the mantra "Please go away. Please go away. Please go away."

While climate science has been a prominent concern of many university based researchers, these same venerable education institutions have failed to walk the talk in regard to applying climate change science to climate risk investment of their financial assets.

text Reviving an Explosive Topic: Reducing Work Hours - by Astrid Fadler
In truth, the introduction of the eight-hour day, the free Saturday and the fifth vacation week (in Austria) did not cause economic crises. Reduced working hours means more distribution justice for the general public and more quality of life for workers. The efficiency of employees increases and the danger of accident declines through reduced working hours. Whoever works less lives healthier and has more time for the family, for (personal) development and for voluntary activity.

While the millionaires increased their wealth enormously, the mass of the population is exposed to the continuing economic crisis. The disinformation campaigns of owners of capital against a sensible taxation of mammoth assets has the wide support of the media. Discussion about a recovery of taxes on the wealthy suffers in the illusion of shock and...
