The Battle for Jobs - by Lorenz Glatz
Breaking with the disastrous logic of competition and money is in the interest of the life, peace and happiness of people today. The return of the (supposedly) better times of stormy growth and full employment is an illusion. If it weren't an illusion, it would be a tremendous acceleration of the ecological catastrophe... Everyone could work less instead of terminating people. Ways could be organized throu9gh shared activity for using the gained freedom in services of everyday life (child car...

A Partial Privatization of Justice - by Frank Bsirske
On www.socialeurope.eu, Richard Trumka of the AFL-CIO warns that the TTIP free trade agreement with Europe is a secret tribunal where only foreign investors can sue. The TTIP brings a crisis for democracy and the constitutional state by creating a parallel private arbitration system where corporate lawyers serve as judges and decisions are irrevocable. Labor and environmental regulations (and all public interest legislation) can be chilled and invalidated as "takings" or "indirect expropria...

"Nakba" - by Ted Rudow III, MA
Israel has made it a policy to ignore United Nations resolutions. The most famous one, UN Security Council Resolution 242, passed just after the Six Day War, talked of the “inadmissibility of the acquisition of territory by war and the need to work for a just and lasting peace in which every State in the area can live in security.” It demanded the “withdrawal of Israeli armed forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict.”

Free Trade and Economic Growth instead of Democracy and Ecology - by Thilo Bode, C Stark and S Wagenknecht
The TTIP agreement between the EU and the US creates a parallel private arbitration system where corporations can sue states for lost profits and decisions are irrevocable. Labor and environmental regulations can be invalidated as “takings” or “indirect expropriation.” Public interest laws can be chilled or invalidated as infringements of the “human right to profit” of foreign investors. Fast Track, TPP and TTIP Should Be Scrapped!
