Spain led the recent property boom in Europe with prices increasing annually at an average of 13% from 2001 to 2007. With the global down-turn of 2008, Spain was hit hard, with many of its new constructions now empty. The government estimates that over 780 000 houses built since 2005 have not been sold. Cuidad Valdeluz is the starkest example of the Spanish property crash. The new town was supposed to house 30 thousand people, today barely 1000 have moved in.

Many punks have recently been arrested in Banda Aceh, Indonesia's most devoutly Muslim province, purportedly to be re-educated.

Thousands of workers took to the streets in Barcelona, in the eighth general strike to protest against labor reform. The educational community protest against cuts and the rising ratio of students per classroom in schools and colleges.

Each day in Spain more than 500 families are evicted from their homes. 22 percent of Spanish households are living in poverty and nearly 600,000 have no income. It is expected that in the coming months this situation will worsen.

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

MALAYSIAN COURT DISMISSES BID TO LEGA...
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
By Beirut Editor's Picks
12 Oct 2012

The Malaysian High Court dismissed an application today by four transgender individuals who are challenging the ban on Muslim men dressing and posing as women, which is found under Section 66 of the Syariah Criminal Enactment.

The four, who had been either arrested or penalized by the "Negeri Sembilan Islamic Religious Department" before, were applying for a judicial review to declare Section 66 unconstitutional.

Justice Siti Mariah Ahmad said in her judgment that the four applicants were indisputably Muslims and were biologically born as a man, so Section 66 applied to them. She also ruled that Part 2 of the Federal Constitution, which guarantees fundamental liberties to an individual, is overruled by Section 66.

Aston Paiva, the lawyer representing the four during the judicial review, said he would be advising his clients to appeal the decision.

The four applicants, Adam Shazrul Mohammad Yusoff, Mohammad Juzaili Mohammad Khamis, Shukur Jani and Wan Fairol Wan Ismail, argued that Section 66 violated the Federal Constitution's guarantee of freedom of expression. They also claimed that the "Syariah laws" should not apply to them as they had been diagnosed with "Gender Identity Disorder."

While several other Malaysians who were born male have sought to be legally declared women, this was the first legal challenge to the law that bans men from "cross-dressing" in Malaysia.

US TARGETS AL-QAEDA IN SOUTHERN YEMEN...

A U.S. air strike targeted a car carrying members of Al-Qaeda on Thursday, October 4th, in the Al-Saed region of Shabwa city, 500 kilometers south-east of the Yemeni capital Sanaa.
Three members of Al-Qaeda died, one of them an Egyptian national.
Eye-witnesses said that they saw a Toyota going to the mountains, and moments later they heard a loud aircraft flying over the area and bombing the vehicle, which was carrying four al-Qaeda members who were heading to a mountainous, fortified area.
Despite the cease-fire between Al-Qaeda and government forces late last June in southern Yemen, a long-term war has been waged by the Yemeni government forces with the help of the U.S.
Observers believe that Al-Qaeda has changed its strategy recently to hit-and-runs against the Yemeni authorities, who are still struggling to eliminate Al-Qaeda from the country.

Thousands of Bahraini people participated today in the funeral of the youth Mohammed Ali Mushaima (23 years old) at Aldaih village - west of the capital Manama. Mushaima passed away in custody after his deteriorated medical condition was neglected by the prison administration.

Mohammed was arrested from the hospital by the army last year while he was receiving his treatment of sickle cell disease. He was sentenced for 7 years. He complained from a sickle cell disease crisis a few day ago and the prison administration neglected his complaints. He was shifted to Salmaniya medical complex and died there Tuesday morning.

The thousands of mourners that attended the funeral, shouted angrily against the King Hamad and the royal family condemning them for the death of the detained protester.

This new crime is only 3 days after killing a child at Saddad village -western south of the capital Manama- by attacking him through shotgun from a very close distance. These human rights violations came only few days after the Geneva session where the Bahraini regime accepted the international community recommendations.

Another issue that is increasingly become more of a problem is that of child trauma, as reports say almost every child has seen someone killed and there are no resources available to provide counseling for the children, many of which are suffering from PTSD.

Lake Katwe - Uganda - 2012-08-17- Formed about ten thousand years ago from a volcanic eruption, Lake Katwe lies in Queen Elisabeth National Park, in Kasese district, western Uganda, bordering the Democratic Republic of Congo through Lake Edward.

Lake Katwe salt mine is a source of livelihood to over three thousand people in the area and in good times hundreds of salt miners at Lake Katwe can make a reasonable living, even if in self-slavery. Due to the hyper saline water that sucks moisture from their bodies and infuses them with toxic chemicals, there are severe health complications. The smell of hydrogen sulphide is all over the place.

For the women, when the female reproductive organs get in contact with this salty water, more often they develop uterine complications. The men on the other hand are also affected. When the male organs come into contact with this salty water they itch, and excessive scratching can cause wounds.

Surviving for a meager five dollars a day is a poor income. Coarse salt is still mined the way it was done over centuries years ago. Men, women and children all work at the mines for their own survival, including a large number of refugees from the nearby Democratic Republic of Congo. Workers extract three main products from Lake Katwe: blocks of rock salt used in curing hides; high quality salt crystals that can be sold as table salt; and salty mud that is used as salt licks for cattle.

Theses pictures show salt miners working on a salt pans pile on the shores of Lake Katwe.
