"Will the application of article 155 bring an end to the crisis?
Extremely doubtful. The #Catalan
independence effort has acquired momentum over recent years and most
campaigners say they are in it for the long haul. Similarly, the #Spanish
government can’t afford to back down when it comes to such a direct
challenge to national and territorial unity." at The Guardian

A single sentence at the end of the Constitution would have solved the Catalan question forever. (It can still be added)

In the Repeal Provision, item 2, annulled laws of the nineteenth century that restricted in a certain way the historical fueros of Álava, Guipúzcoa and Vizcaya, a consequence of the 1st Carlist War annulled a law of the Second Carlist War, which constrained the Covenants between the historic Kingdom of Navarre and the Spanish State. So that the Basque Historical Territories recovered their economic concerts and Navarre, its Old Fueros. Instead of elaborating a Statute of Autonomy, Navarra drafted an Act (Organic for the Spanish State) of Reintegration and Improvement of Jurisdiction. In fact Navarre works as a federal state to Spain.
But there was a tremendous failure: they did not annul Decrees of century XVIII, consequence of the War of Succession, that they had suppressed the Historical Forces of Catalonia, Aragon, Baleares and Valencia.

Spanish Constitution 1978
Repeal provision:
2. Insofar as it could maintain some validity, the Law of October 25, 1839 is considered definitively repealed in what could affect the provinces of Alava, Guipúzcoa and Vizcaya.
In the same terms, the Law of July 21, 1876 is definitively repealed.
(It could be added: "In the same terms, the Decrees of New Plant of Catalonia, Aragon, Baleares and Valencia are considered definitively repealed")

As seen in the image, in 1702, the Corts de Catalunya approved and Philip V of Castile and IV of Aragon sanctioned, the Fourth Compilation of the Catalan Forces (Constitutions, Captains and Actes de Corts). Thirteen years later, after the War of Succession, Felipe V, by means of decrees of despotism not very illustrated, suppresses the Charter of Catalonia, Aragon, Valencia and Baleares, but not those of Navarre.
So today Navarra is not an Autonomous Community, but Foral; it works in fact as a federated state to the Spanish state; a situation that could have today Catalonia, if had taken into account the happy phrase that I have commented. Navarra has its own tax system, collects its taxes and pays with the Government of Spain the "Donation", that is the contribution that corresponds each year to the maintenance of the expenses of the state, present in the General Budgets.

Will The Kirkuk Campaign Lead To Regime Change In Kurdistan? – OrientalReview.org

 

 

The Iraqi federal government commenced a military intervention in the
Kurdish-occupied oil-rich city of Kirkuk. This area has long been
disputed between the Iraqi central
authorities and the Kurdish Regional Government of Northern Iraq, and
Article 140 of the post-2003 US-imposed “constitution” decreed that a
referendum was supposed to have been held here before 2008. Such a vote
never took place due to the country’s dire security situation and
misplaced priorities at the time, but the Kurdish-claimed city take part
in a different referendum last month when they voted for independence
from Iraq. [ 451 more words ]

Youth Suicides Reach Record High In The UK - TruePublica

Youth Suicides Reach Record High In The UK - TruePublica

 

 

By Alice Summers – wsws.orgAccording
to a study by the Institute of Public Policy Research (IPPR), 134
students committed suicide in the 2014-15 academic year. This figure, an
all-time high, represents an increase of 79 percent since 2007, when 75
students took their own lives.


 


The IPPR’s research findings come amid a worsening mental health
crisis in the UK and worldwide, which is particularly affecting young
people under the age of 25. Approximately one-in-four people in the UK
suffer from a mental health condition each year, with around
three-quarters of adults with a mental illness first experiencing
symptoms before the age of 25, according to the report.


The proportion of 16-to-24-year-olds experiencing a mental health
condition in England is rising, with 19 percent in this age group
suffering from some form of mental health problem, up from 15 percent in
2003. Young women under 25 are hit hardest by the mental health crisis,
with 28 percent affected.

 On October 6, some of America’s top political scientists gathered at
Yale University to answer these questions. And nearly everyone agreed:
American democracy is eroding on
multiple fronts — socially, culturally, and economically. The scholars
pointed to breakdowns in social cohesion (meaning citizens are more
fragmented than ever), the rise of tribalism, the erosion of democratic
norms such as a commitment to rule of law, and a loss of faith in the
electoral and economic systems as clear signs of democratic erosion.

SPAIN AGAINST THE CATALONIA PEOPLE --- Una deriva inquietant i una barbaritat

Una deriva inquietant i una barbaritat

 "In Spain, there are political prisoners again."

"With this movement Rajoy will reassure his hooligans and the most radical sectors of his party," the editorial of José Antich

 

 Jordi Sánchez's and Jordi Cuixart's unbanked prisoners arrested on Monday night by Judge of the National Court of Justice Carmen Lamela, accepting the petition of the fiscal ministry, places the conflict between Catalonia and Spain at one of the points more energetic since its inception in 2010. The leaders of the sovereign entities that have accompanied the entire independence process and who are the organizers of the peaceful demonstrations that have surprised the world for civility and the capacity to call, a criminal organization nor are they at the helm of a group of criminals. They are responsible for civic organizations with a strong roots in Catalan society. Sànchez, President of the Catalan National Assembly (ANC), has been a recognized activist since the eighties of non-violence and pacifism. Cuixart presides over Òmnium Cultural, an entity created in 1961 to promote the Catalan language, to spread culture and, in recent years, to promote independence. In 1963, the Franco regime closed its headquarters and prohibited its activities, but in 1967 it was legalized.

This explanation is essential for the representation and representation of the ANC and Òmnium in Catalonia for the magnitude of the colossal error committed by the Spanish government, through the Ministry of Justice and the State Attorney General, giving a letter of Verisimilitude to the crime of sedition for the concentrations that were before the Ministry of Economy on September 20 during the registration of the department by the Civil Guard. The State has acted blindly, starting from previous experiences in the Basque Country, ignoring the Catalan reality and its feelings, and convinced, as it is, that the repression will reverse the rise of independence, will make it into contradictions He will break his unit, force him to step back and end up calling for elections to Parliament. This mistake, just fifteen days after he was unable to find a single ballot box of more than 6,000 that was placed in schools throughout Catalonia on October 1, shows how far he can stumble twice followed

With this movement, Rajoy will reassure his hooligans and the most radical sectors of his party. In the media, radio and television. Citizens will also celebrate it. But the satisfaction will not go much further. The PSC is selling difficult times, as the irritation for its endorsement to the repression of the State will not solve it with tweets of Iceta, Parlon and company. Speaking in silver: the dilemma of the police action of October 1 returns with more force: or it is with the polls or is with the porras.

That the arrest of Cuixart and Sanchez coincide with the letter from Carles Puigdemont to Mariano Rajoy in which he insisted on dialogue, negotiation and mediation and asked for a meeting and set a period of two months for an agreement is not a chance The 155, which has long been present in one way or another, starts to gain a body without the end of the deadline established next Thursday.

More luck that Cuixart and Sanchez had the greatest Trapero, responsible for the Mossos d'Esquadra, who also had to appear at the National Court. It is true that he did not go into prison as the prosecutor asked, but the precautionary measures imposed by the judge are not only extemporaneous but unjustly unfair to a public servant with an irreproachable record. His experience with counselors with a very different political color confirms this. The impromptu response to the streets of Barcelona so the detention of Cuixart and Sánchez was known, with cars touching their claxons and the return of the cassolades, they make evident the indignation of a broad sector of the citizenship to a measure that the Spanish government through the prosecutor should have avoided. In Spain, there are political prisoners again.

 'Two political prisoners persecuted in the 2017 Europe by an authoritarian state that has shown that he is capable of violating his law.'

 Freedom Jordis! We want them to the street!
«As of that night, they, their freedom, are also an objective of our struggle»

  

Spain in 2017 has issued an order of imprisonment against Jordi Sànchez and Jordi Cuixart, two Catalan political and social leaders who have done nothing but to lead the great mobilizations of recent years for the independence of Catalonia. They are political prisoners. Two political prisoners persecuted in the 2017 Europe by an authoritarian state that has shown that he is able to violate his law in order to condemn them with an interlocutory that does not withstand the minimum technical analysis.

Sànchez i Cuixart are two esteemed, respected and recognized people. And they are far beyond the independentist circles, as it has been seen immediately, so it has been known that they entered prison. In them, we have seen many of us and we can see the best and best of our country. They are people who voluntarily have spent hours and hours of their lives with the sole desire to help our society to understand the great problem that we have and encourage it to solve it. They are two people with a life made, without any need to engage in politics, that have been generously placed at the service of Catalan society and the defense of their interests. Two people who have advocated the interests of all to personal interests.

They pay it expensive Today they paid too much. And that is why it is imperative that we show them our greatest and unconditional solidarity. I do it on my behalf, on behalf of the publishing company of VilaWeb and on behalf of all those who work on it. But I am sure that I also do it on behalf of all the readers of this newspaper, that we have been shaking today with indignation when we heard the news.

We want them at home and free. Strolling through our streets. We want to bring our banners with your smile. We want to receive the warmth of the people, that their work deserves. We want to hear from the microphones. We want to touch and hug you. We want to push you to keep going. We want them out of Spanish prisons.

As of this night, their freedom is also an objective of our struggle. We call you to follow the slogans of the National National Assembly and Omnium. Tomorrow at twelve noon, concentrate at the door of work. Tomorrow at eight in the evening, let's focus on candles in Barcelona, ​​on Avinguda Diagonal - Paseo de Gracia. And we call until we have no voice: 'Liberty Jordis! We're flying to the street! '

How American Oligarchs Created the Concept of Race to Divide and Conquer the Poor

How American Oligarchs Created the Concept of Race to Divide and Conquer the Poor

While teaching U.S. history at a public charter high school in
the District, Julian Hipkins III noticed that students tended to assume
that “race” was as old as mankind. “Almost like it was natural, a
given,” as he put it.



So, using some specialized lessons, Hipkins helped the students
explore the invention of race and the reasons for it, as laid out in
colonial law. Especially the Virginia slave codes enacted between 1640
and 1705.



Question: How did wealthy landowners thwart the efforts of enslaved
Africans and European indentured servants to join forces in a common
struggle for economic justice?



Answer: Divide and conquer through the invention of race. Make the
white servants feel superior to black slaves by virtue of skin color;
manipulate poor whites into believing that any perceived gains by blacks
had come at their expense.



“I started by having students get together in groups and think up
laws that could be used to separate one group of people from another and
laws that would make one group of people feel superior to another,”
said Hipkins, who taught 11th-graders at the Capital City Public Charter
School in Northwest Washington.



The students, reluctantly, brainstormed. And when Hipkins showed them
how similar their concocted laws were to actual slave codes, some of
the students recoiled in disbelief. “They said, ‘You made that up!’ ”
Hipkins recalled. “I said, ‘No, those are actual laws.’ They said,
‘That’s crazy. Somebody actually sat down and wrote those?’ ”



Students eventually homed in on the essential question: Who stood to
benefit from such diabolically inspired disunity among people whose
economic interests were so intertwined?

 PETER KOENIG: Ernesto “Che” Guevara was born in Rosario, Argentina, on
14 June 1928 and was assassinated in Higuera, Bolivia, by CIA-led
Bolivian forces on 9 October 1967. It
was a summary execution – no trial, no questions asked – 50 years ago.
What has changed in 5 decades? – At the surface, one might say – not
much. The world is still divided between the capitalist, neocolonialist
west and the much more visionary and peaceful east.

For
millions of people, the global economic collapse has generated
curiosity about how money systems actually work, as opposed to how
they’re portrayed, especially when so
many financial pundits seem to be baffled. In The Ascent of Money,
economist Niall Ferguson works through some history that created today’s
money system, visiting the locations where key events took place and
poring over actual ledgers and documents, such as the first publicly
traded share of a company. Viewed with a critical eye, this series aims
to show how the history of money is indeed at the core of civilisation,
with economic strength determining political dominance, wars fought to
create wealth and individual financial barons determining the fates of
millions.

From Shylock’s pound of
flesh, to the loan-sharks of Glasgow; from the “promises to pay” on
Babylonian clay tablets, to the Medici banking system; this first
episode explains the origins of credit and debt and why credit networks
are indispensable to any system of power.http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x5uxhnu

The Speculative Civil War Novel Comes Home

 Two authors’ attempts to imagine the consequences of pre-election
political realities have been made less and less speculative by the
rolling disaster we live in.

 Neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other alt-right factions scuffled with counter-demonstrators near Emancipation Park (Formerly "Lee Park") in downtown Charlottesville, Virginia. After fighting between factions escalated, Virginia State Police ordered the evacuation by all parties and cancellation of the "Unite The Right" rally scheduled to take place in the park.

Raqqa is almost liberated from ISIS.

The US-backed SDF has played a role in taking back the town. The motive for US support of the SDF is that there are many Syrian
Kurds in it and taking Raqqa helps with Kurdish expansion. Retaking
Raqqa will help factionalize, divide, and weaken the Syrian Arab
Republic. In general, the US coalition mostly targets anti-ISIS fighters
with precision while killing mostly civilians when targeting ISIS.

 One by one, each breathless claim of Russian involved in US elections or
involved in "demoralizing" Americans has fallen apart under even basic
scrutiny. Senate Intelligence Committee
and Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigations are going nowhere by
their own admission. How many more millions of dollars are going to be
funneled into this farce? How long until Americans wake up and realize
they are being had?

What Produces Wealth in America: Studies Show Republicans Don’t Understand | Global Research - Centre for Research on Globalization

 ERIC ZUESSE: A Pew poll published on May 2nd was headlined “Why people
are rich and poor: Republicans and Democrats have very different views”,
and it reported that, “Most Republicans
link a person’s financial standing to their own hard work – or the lack
of it. Most Democrats say that whether someone is rich or poor is more
attributable to circumstances beyond their control.” The partisan
difference on this issue was stark: “By about three-to-one (66% to 21%),
Republicans and Republican-leaning independents say hard work, rather
than a person’s advantages, has more to do with why someone is rich. By
nearly as wide a margin, Democrats and Democratic leaners say the
opposite: 60% say a person is rich because they had more advantages than
others, while just 29% say it is because they have worked harder.”
