In traditional Indian culture, according to texts as early as the Vedas, the Earth is home to all living species that inhabit it and must not be excluded as they all contribute to the planet's welfare and preservation. Therefore, human beings must contribute to the web of life of which they are a part and find ways of using the elements to produce food without damaging other life forms as far as possible.

21 Apr 2017 - Why has this tiny nation of 24 million people invested so much of its limited resources in acquiring nuclear weapons? North Korea’s stance cannot be separated out from its turbulent history during the 20th Century, especially its four decade long occupation by Japan, the forced division of the Korean peninsula after World War II, and, of course, the subsequent utterly devastating war with the United States from 1950-1953 that ended in an armistice in which a technical state of war still exists.

16 Apr 2017 — Having spent the last 15 years in an Israeli prison, I have been both a witness to and a victim of Israel’s illegal system of arbitrary arrests and ill-treatment of Palestinian prisoners. After exhausting all other options, I decided to resist these abuses by going on a hunger strike. Freedom and dignity are universal rights that are inherent in humanity, to be enjoyed by every nation and all human beings. Palestinians will not be an exception.

19 Apr 2017 - With 18.8 million people –nearly 7 in 10 inhabitants– in need of humanitarian aid, including 10.3 million requiring immediate assistance, Yemen is now the largest single-nation humanitarian crisis in the world, the UN informs. According to OCHA, over 17 million people are currently “food insecure,” of whom 6.8 million are “severely food insecure” and require immediate food assistance, and two million acutely malnourished children. The Yemeni population amounts to 27.4 million inhabitants.

Many people in the West are worried about the situation not because of Donald Trump’s insane militarism, but that of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. Such thinking is irrational and ahistorical, and is rooted largely in mass-media deception and good old-fashioned 'Yellow Peril' racism. The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has invaded and bombed not a single country. The USA, on the other hand, has invaded and bombed dozens of countries - including Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yugoslavia, Grenada, Nicaragua, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and, yes, Korea.

That common ground between poetry and science is what poet Jane Hirshfield sows with splendor in this poem written for the 2017 March for Science in Washington, D.C., protesting the anti-fact, anti-truth, anti-science political climate of the current American administration. (Maria Popova)

21 Apr 2017 - This is not normal: We’re on track to witness a climate unseen in 50 million years by mid-century. We first hit 400 parts per million back in 2013, and that became the new norm just four years later. And on April 18 this year, as predicted, we crossed the 410 ppm threshold for the first time at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii.

La Corée du Nord, une menace pour les Etats-Unis? Oui, si on applique un principe fondamental de la propagande de guerre: occulter l’histoire. Par contre, si on replace les événements dans leur contexte, les tensions entre Washington et Pyongyang prennent une toute autre dimension. C’est pourquoi nous vous proposons la lecture cet article de 2010. Un historien revient sur la guerre qui a ravagé la Corée de 1950 à 1953. Utile pour remettre les pendules à l’heure.

22 Apr 2017 - I have a confession to make: I like Marwan Barghouti. I have visited him at his modest Ramallah home several times. During our conversations, we discussed Israeli-Palestinian peace. Our ideas were the same: to create the State of Palestine next to the State of Israel, and to establish peace between the two states, with open borders and cooperation. I am waiting for the day when I can visit Marwan again as a free man in his home in Ramallah. Even more so if Ramallah is, by that time, a town in the free State of Palestine.

Talk That Chris Hedges Gave on 17 April 2017 at Princeton University - In the conflicts I covered as a reporter in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and the Balkans, I encountered singular individuals of varying creeds, religions, races and nationalities who majestically rose up to defy the oppressor on behalf of the oppressed. Some of them are dead. Some of them are forgotten. Most of them are unknown.

Between 1900-2006, campaigns of nonviolent civil resistance were twice as successful as violent campaigns. Erica talks about her research on the impressive historical record of civil resistance in the 20th century and discusses the promise of unarmed struggle in the 21st century. In addition to explaining why nonviolent resistance has been so effective, she also shares some lessons learned about why it sometimes fails.

The Palestinian Committee of Prisoners' Affairs released a statement Monday [17 Apr] saying that Israeli Prison Service officials have forcibly moved hunger-striking prisoners to different sections of Israeli jails, confiscated their clothes and personal belongings and prevented lawyers and family members from visiting them in jail. Some Israeli leaders are calling for a more blood-soaked crackdown, calling on the state to execute many of the prisoners.
