DiEM25’s Manifesto is a bold effort to reverse the damage and restore the promise - Noam Chomsky



CAMBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS, March 14, 2016–Distinguished American linguist, philosopher and political activist, Noam Chomsky, has officially endorsed DiEM25, the Democracy in Europe Movement launched last month by Greece’s former Finance Minister, Yanis Varoufakis.

“The formation of the European Union,” explained Chomsky, “was a highly encouraging step forward in world affairs, with great promise.” However, in the view of the American scholar, the EU “now faces severe threats, from within, tracing in no small measure to the attack on democracy.”

Il nuovo logo della Festa del'Unità


La festa de l'Unità è la denominazione che assumono i festival organizzati periodicamente in numerosi comuni d'Italiadal Partito Comunista Italiano, dal Partito Democratico della Sinistra, dai Democratici di Sinistra e dal Partito Democratico.

Le feste de l'Unità possono essere locali (di comune o circoscrizione, organizzate dalle relative sezioni del partito), provinciali o tematiche. Esiste poi annualmente una festa de l'Unità nazionale, organizzata in una città scelta appositamente. L'ultima festa de l'Unità nazionale dei DS si è svolta a Bologna dal 24 agosto al 17 settembre 2007, ed ha sancito l'ingresso dei DS nel Partito Democratico.

Le feste de l'Unità, generalmente, ospitano spazi per dibattiti, spettacoli, concerti e stand gastronomici. L'organizzazione viene curata da volontari iscritti o simpatizzanti del partito, mentre la partecipazione, ampia specialmente nelle zone d'Italia storicamente vicine al centrosinistra, è aperta all'intera cittadinanza.

No Border in Como!


Per la sua vicinanza con il confine svizzero Como sta diventando, come prima Ventimiglia, un punto caldo per la questione migrante in questa Estate 2016.

La Svizzera ha blindato la frontiera per impedire ai migranti di raggiungere i paesi dell’Europa del Nord.

Centinaia di profughi hanno dato vita a un campo autogestito nel parco che si trova fuori dalla stazione ferroviaria di Como. Continua

Eaten Fish il disegnatore detenuto nell'Hotspot di Manus Island è il vincitore del Cartoonist Rights Network International (CRNI).


Ali è un uomo di 25 anni ed è rinchiuso da più di tre anni nel campo dell'isola di Nauru e Manus Island (PNG) in Papua Nuova Guinea, il suo nome d’arte è Eaten Fish. Questo centro di detenzione è finanziato dal governo dell'Australia. Diversi gruppi per i diritti umani si sono espressi contro il campo.
Ali è iraniano e soffre del Disturbo ossessivo-compulsivo ed è stato aggredito e maltrattato all’interno del centro.
In questi giorni gli è stato consegnato il premio come miglior vignettista al Cartoonist Rights Network International (CRNI).
Mr. Eaten Fish racconta gli abusi indicibili e i soprusi delle guardie e degli amministratori del campo.
Proprio per questi suoi racconti è stato oggetto di altre percosse, privazioni di cibo e di un trattamento degradante da parte delle guardie. L’Australia ha reso punibile la pubblicazione di informazioni negative sui campi con due anni di carcere.



Il lavoro come fumettista di Eaten Fish porta alla luce gli orrori che stanno accadendo intorno a lui. CRNI crede che il suo lavoro sarà riconosciuto come tra i più importanti per la comunicazione delle violazioni dei diritti umani nella vita quotidiani all’interno di un campo di prigionia.

CRNI è un’organizzazione internazionale per i diritti umani, con una rete di più di 600 illustratori in tutto il mondo. Il suo compito è quello di difendere i fumettisti dalla censura, dalla detenzione, dalle intimidazioni, dalla violenza e dalla morte.
Più di trenta fumettisti australiani si sono esposti per la difesa e la promozione di Ali: First Dog on the Moon di Andrew Marlton e David Squires, così come David Rowe, Jon Kudelka, David Pope, Fiona Katauskas e Cathy Wilcox.



La poetessa e attivista per i diritti umani e fondatore di http://writingthroughfences.org, Janet Galbraith riceverà il premio a nome di Ali ha già detto al Guardian Australia che teme per la vita del disegnatore. 
“È  arrivato all’isola Manus come un giovane molto vulnerabile e mi ricordo che alcuni lavoratori del campo hanno detto che per quel ragazzo il centro è un posto troppo pericoloso.
“Ha un grave disturbo OSSESSIVO, si laverà i suoi vestiti e il suo corpo fino a sanguinare”.

Il Department of Immigration and Border Protection sta cercando di difendere e curare Ali nel centro di Manus.

Iran 30,000 #1988massacre



In the summer of 1988, the Iranian regime summarily and extrajudicially executed tens of thousands of political prisoners held in jails across Iran.The Iranian regime has never acknowledged these executions,or provided any information as to how many prisoners were killed.

The majority of those executed were either serving prison sentences for their political activities or had already finished their sentences but were still kept in prison.Some of them had previously been imprisoned and released, but were again arrested and executed during the massacre.

The wave of massacre of political prisoners began in late July and continued unabated for a few months. Continue

Sylville K. Smith #Milwaukee





A 23-year-old black man armed with a stolen gun was fatally shot Saturday afternoon by police in Milwaukee during a foot pursuit, authorities say.

The man has been identified as Sylville Smith, police said. Smith was shot in the chest and arm, Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said.

He fled from a car during a traffic stop Saturday about 2:30 p.m. in the Wisconsin city’s North Side, police said in a press release. He was chased by two officers and was shot during the foot pursuit, according to police.

Peaceful protests turned to violent unrest Saturday night. One police officer was hospitalized after a brick was thrown through his windshield. Three others were hospitalized with unspecified injuries, but all were released by Sunday morning. Six buildings and several vehicles were burned, including a police car. Seventeen arrests were made, officials said.

The scene was calm Sunday morning, with community members gathering to cleanup and hold a prayer service. Governor Scott Walker activated the state’s National Guard as a precaution. They will be available to assist police Sunday if needed. Continue

My support for Ali Al-Nimr #SaudiArabia





Ali al-Nimr was just 17 years old when he was sentenced to death in the wake of the Arab Spring pro-democracy uprising. He was accused of participation in an illegal demonstration and a large number of offences. These include “explaining how to give first aid to protestors” and using his blackberry to invite others to join him at the protest.

Ali is the nephew of Sheikh Nimr, a reformist cleric who has repeatedly called for an end to corruption and discrimination against minorities. He has also been sentenced to death.

Ali was arrested without a warrant. He was held in pre-trial detention for two years, and at no point was he allowed to contact his lawyer. Ali was tortured and forced to sign false confession. Throughout his trial, Ali was denied access to the evidence against him. He was not even informed of the charges until half way through the proceedings. His forced confession was the only evidence brought against him.

He was sentenced to ‘death by crucifixtion’.

Ali’s final appeal was held in secret, without his knowledge. This was the last remaining legal obstacle to his execution, and now Ali can be crucified at any time. The authorities may not even give prior notification of his family. His execution would be illegal under international law.

Why is the world silent? Ali Al-Nimr

Je suis Mannelli


Ali Al-Nimr, Dawoud Al-Marhoon and Abdullah Al-Zaher will be executed and crucified by the #Saudi regime.

They were children when arrested by the regime, for partaking in pro-democracy protests.

We must contact our elected government representatives and bring awareness to the cases of these 3 innocent young men before it is too late. #freethe3
