  2. Fighting Maoists

    Praful Bidwai
    02 August 2012

    The killing of 20 civilian men, women and children by Indian military police is morally impermissible and a political triumph for the Maoist argument that the Indian state is structurally and irredeemably anti-people, anti-Adivasi and brutal.

  3. A Shameless Secretary General versus Freedom Flotilla 2

    Richard Falk
    09 June 2011

    A year after Israel's violent attack on the first aid flotilla, it has failed to keep its promise to end the blockade of Gaza, where the humanitarian crisis continues to worsen.

  6. Libya's opposition calls for a ceasefire

    Phyllis Bennis
    07 April 2011

    Since the intervention in Libya has neither resulted in the removal of Gaddafi, nor an end to the fighting - an immediate ceasefire should be top of everyone's agenda to bring an end to the continuing bloodshed.

    15 June 2010

  10. Ander Europa


    Het comité Ander Europa is een samenwerking van Nederlandse en Vlaamse linkse activisten met diverse achtergronden, maar verenigd rond dezelfde overtuiging en bekommernis: de Europese Unie (EU) is niet het Europa dat we willen, integendeel, het is een ondemocratische politieke structuur, die grotendeels aan de controle van burgers en zelfs van nationale parlementen ontsnapt, en die haar...

  16. Optimism and Fear

    Phyllis Bennis
    06 September 2013

  19. Unmasking Authoritarianism

    26 April 2018

    With the likes of Putin, Trump, Xi Jinping and Modi controlling some of the world’s most powerful nations, authoritarianism is fast being normalised. The rise of these figures has been paralleled by a disturbing growth in nationalist, racist and xenophobic forces, disaffection towards traditional democratic institutions and a steady increase in repression of social movements and civil society.  The promises of Fukuyama, Friedman and others that capitalism and liberal, open societies were inextricably bound together lie today in tatters.
