Economists Radhika Desai and Michael Hudson explain the end of the British empire’s sterling area with the rise of the US dollar system, its central role in imperialism, and why it ultimately failed to accomplish Washington’s hegemonic goals.
Σοκ προκαλεί νέα απάνθρωπηυπόθεση που αφορά στους πλειστηριασμούςκατοικιών, καθώς μία γυναίκα καθηλωμένη σε αναπηρικό καροτσάκι, η οποία παράλληλα λαμβάνει πολύ χαμηλόεισόδημα έχασε το σπίτι της, διότι δεν μπορούσε να αποπληρώσει το στεγαστικό της δάνειοούτε να έρθει σε συμφωνία με το fund που το απέκτησε. Έτσι όχι μόνο έχασε την κατοικία της για 46.000 ευρώ αλλά είδε ανθρώπους να προσπαθούν να την βγάλουν εισβάλλοντας από το παράθυρο. Η γυναίκα που πάσχει με ρευματοαρθρίτιδα από το 2016 μίλησε στο OPEN τόσο για τις δώσεις που αδυνατούσε να καταβάλλει όσο και για την περιπέτεια που έζησε κατά την επιχείρησηέξωσης, η οποία θυμίζει αστυνομικήταινία του Χόλιγουντ και όχι έξωση ανθρώπου από το σπίτι του.

Damascus – About two weeks after the devastating earthquake that struck both Syria and Turkey and the unprecedented human tragedy it left behind, the scale of Western hypocrisy and the falsity of its repeated claims about human rights and the defense of humanitarian issues for which it set itself up as its advocate, or rather as a judge under the pretext of which it flogs whomever it wants from its enemies under the pretext of defending them, have been revealed successively.
In the most recent chapter of this strange paradox which amounts to a scandal is what a UN official announced that the rate of response in Syria following the devastating earthquake did not reach the minimum required so far.
Ghada Mudawi, an official at the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, confirmed that the humanitarian appeal launched by the United…
The Western world’s threat narrative seeks to disrupt the concept of multipolarity by imposing sanctions and military deterrence.
On February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin delivered a speech at the Federal Assembly, which received significant attention, particularly from Western media, as the first anniversary of the Ukrainian war approached.
Although Western analysts anticipated an aggressive tone from Putin’s speech, it did not materialize. Their expectation was primarily that Putin would make statements about “shifting gears” in Ukraine and declaring the beginning of a new phase in the operation.
However, Putin’s speech focused more on domestic issues in Russia. He recalled how the Soviet economy faced difficulties in its final days, stating that the Soviet Union began creating a market economy, similar to that of Western countries, but…
Joe Biden’s recent performance in the State of the Union message delivered to the U.S. Congress is being hailed as the start of his campaign for reelection as President in 2024. Nevertheless, the best thing that Biden could do right now would be to announce that he will not be a candidate, thus inaugurating an open contest for the Democratic nomination.
According to a new poll, 63% of U.S. Democrats think that Biden should not run again, and the reason cited by virtually all of them is his advanced age (80) or characteristics related to age (halting speech, for example). These seem to me theleastimportant reasons for Biden to decline to run again. In fact, the cavalier ageism of many people who would not dream of opposing someone’s candidacy on the basis of…
من البوّابة الإنسانية، عبرت مصر نحو رفْع مستوى علاقتها مع سوريا، من التنسيق الأمني غير المعلَن، إلى التواصل المباشر بين البلدَين اللذين فرّقتْهما قطيعة مؤقّتة، تَبِع انتهاءها موقف مصري متذبذب، سرعان ما فارقتْه القاهرة في أعقاب وقوع الزلزال الكارثة في السادس من شباط. وعلى رغم التكهّن بأن الخطوة المصرية الواسعة إزاء دمشق قد تكون، في جانب منها، مدفوعةً بالخلاف المستمرّ في ما بين القاهرة والرياض، إلّا أن سياقها ينبئ باندراجها في إطار الحَراك العربي الأوسع الذي تقوده أبو ظبي ومسقط وعمّان نحو سوريا، والذي يُتوقّع أن لا تتأخّر الرياض في الانضمام إليه
في تطوُّر يفتتح فصلاً جديداً في العلاقات السورية – المصرية، حلّ وزير الخارجية المصري، سامح شكري، ضيفاً على دمشق، حيث أجرى لقاءً مع نظيره السوري، فيصل المقداد، والرئيس بشار الأسد، في…

On Monday, an Israeli court denied an appeal against the demolition of a Palestinian in Beit Ta’mar village, east of Bethlehem, in the occupied West Bank.
The WAFA Palestinian News Agency said the appeal was filed by the Wall & Colonization Resistance Commission and The Society of St. Yves – Catholic Center for Human Rights, asking to repeal a demolition order of Tahadi 5 Basic School in the village.
The Israeli occupation authorities issued a demolition order in the year 2017, and since then, the appeal was filed to stop the destruction, but the court refused to allow the renewal of the appeal application and affirmed the demolition during a hearing held last week.
