Anarchist Labor Unions Call Strike (3...

31 Oct 2012

October 31, 2012, Barcelona, Spain. The CGT and CNT anarchist labor unions called a 24 hour strike. The day of action is in defense of public services and a protest against social cuts and unemployment. They also complain that salaries in Spain are the lowest in Europe while the unemployment rate is the highest: it is over the 25% of the population and in the case of young people under the age of 25 the rate goes up to 52%. Considering this economic context they also criticize the rising taxes such as the VAT.

The protests started at noon in Plaza de Catalunya. From there people went to places like the AppStore in Plaza de Catalunya and the FNAC. After, they went into a Zara store. There was a tense moment as one of the approximately 300 protesters had taken a mannequin and had thrown items on the floor of the store. The people that caused the accident were a group of fifty hooded individuals; CGT claims not to be involved.

31 de Octubre 2012, Barcelona, Spain. Los sindicatos Anarquistas CGT y CNT convocaron una huelga de 24 horas. La jornada de lucha se hace en protesta contra los recortes sociales, el paro y en defensa de los servicios públicos. Además, denuncian que los sueldos son los más bajos de Europa y el índice de paro, el más alto, ya que supera el 25% de la población y en el caso de los jóvenes menores de 25 años es del 52%. Con todo este contexto económico, critican la subida de impuestos como el IVA.
Las protestas de esta jornada han comenzado a mediodía en la plaza de Catalunya. Desde allí se dirigieron a establecimientos como la AppStore de la plaza de Cataluña y también la FNAC. Después han ido a una tienda de Zara, donde se han vivido algunos momentos de tensión cuando algunos de los cerca de 300 manifestantes han tomado un maniquí y han lanzado por tierra algunas prendas del establecimiento. Los autores del incidente han sido un grupo de una cincuentena de personas encapuchadas de las cuales la CGT se ha desmarcado totalmente.

15 Sep 2012

Thousands of Lebanese greeted Pope Benedict XVI as he headed on his Popemobile to the Baabda Presidential Palace where he met with the country's top political and Muslim religious leaders on Saturday, September 15.
Crowds of people were waving both the Vatican and Lebanese flags and cheering as he passed with confetti swirling in the air.
In the Beirut suburb of Baabda where there was a festive atmosphere on the streets, the Pope first met with Lebanese President Michel Suleiman and his wife.
The Pope also met with Speaker Nabih Berri and Prime Minister Najib Miqati.

Pope Benedict calls on Lebanon to be a model of peace and religious freedom in the tumultuous Middle East.
During a speech, the Pope expressed sympathy with youth in Syria. The pope said he admired their courage, adding this is a time for Christians and Muslims to come together "so as to put an end to violence and war."
He also called for interfaith unity in order to end violence in the Middle East.
The visit of the Pope to Lebanon is aimed at bridging the gap between Christians and Muslims in the Middle East.
The pontiff, who arrived on Friday for a three-day visit, praised Lebanon as an example of “coexistence and respectful dialogue between Christians and their brethren of other religions” when he arrived at the airport.
Hezbollah's leader Hassan Nasrallah also welcomed the Pontiff's arrival in Lebanon, describing the event as "historic and extraordinary.”

Kurdish Communities In Syria
Derik, Syria

13 Aug 2012

Thousands join a Kurdish rally in the city of Qamishlo, where recent clashes occurred between Kurdish fighters and Assad's forces, for a Kurdish autonomy region inside the Syrian borders.

More than 1.000 Kurdish protesters waving Kurdish flags and demanding human rights, staged a rally against the Assad regime in the northeastern city of Girke Lege in Syria. They waved flags in the Kurdish colors demanding basic rights for the Kurdish people in Syria.

The people of the Kurdish village Bestastos in Northeast Syria attend a ceremony for the opening of a Kurdish cultural center. Under the rule of Assad teaching Kurdish culture and language was forbidden and teachers faced up to 10 years in prison. With the liberation of their cities from Assad, the Kurdish civil movement built up new language schools. But now in many Kurdish dominated parts in Syria the Regime forces where driven out by non violent actions.

Kurdish fighters, both female and male, from the Kurdish YPG self defense army, took control of the outskirts of Derik, a Kurdish dominated city in Northeast Syria. Battle broke out in the city center, where around 80 Syrian Army soldiers would not surrender. One YPG fighter got killed, several Syrian Army soldiers wounded.

Palestinians living in Burj al Barajneh, a refugee camp in Beirut, Lebanon, organized a protest against the Israeli military attacks on Gaza during the winter of 2008-2009. The demonstration turned into a hopeless, silent march, with the company of only a few television cameras and their voices were barely heard.
