Economic Reforms and Workers’ Rights in the People’s Republic of China

Por • 19 ago, 2018 • Category: Política

The latest developments show that some labour NGOs seem to have reduced capacity to support workers in their struggle due to the shrinking political space for civil society – particularly civil society working in the labour sphere. But challenges to labour activism do not put an end to class struggle. Therefore, in order to understand the trajectory of China’s labour situation there are two key points that must be considered.



El Arte de la Transición

Por • 9 ago, 2018 • Category: Política

El triunfo electoral y la superación de dinámicas caotizadoras post-electorales requiere inevitablemente un centro de poder conductor, que esté en relación dialéctica real con las masas y los bloques de poder. Lo que sucede, cuando por falta de liderazgo no se establece la direccionalidad e integración necesaria de las fuerzas de transformación estatales y sociales en una gobernanza nacional adecuada, lo vemos en Venezuela y, crecientemente, en Argentina, Brasil, Estados Unidos y Nicaragua. La entropía del sistema aumenta y se acerca al punto del colapso vía el magnicidio, el golpe militar, el levantamiento de masas o la intervención externa.

Minister Benjamin Netanyahu threatened Iran with the start of a military conflict in which he believes an international coalition would also take part, should Tehran choose to close an important waterway in the region, the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait.“If Iran tries to block the Bab-el-Mandeb Strait, I am convinced that [Iran] will face an international coalition to avoid the blockade and this coalition will also include all Israeli military forces,” Netanyahu told the graduates of the captains of the Israeli Navy at its naval training base in Haifa.



Discussing changes in the international order

Por • 30 jul, 2018 • Category: Política

Academics are currently debating about the future course of the world order. Will the world head toward a new Cold War? What path will China take? As we reach the end of the second decade of the 21st century, the so-called trade war between China and the US and its overall impact is mirroring the ups and downs in the international situation, and the anxieties brought about by the behavior of the only world superpower, the United States. Observers are thinking about what the next world order might be. The current order cannot cope with all the problems the world is now facing, and the new order is not yet in sight. The reality is that many countries, including the US, China, Russia and some European nations, are all facing internal challenges to different degrees and need to concentrate on solving their own problems. However, some international issues have also resulted from the spillover of domestic problems. In such a situation, which path should China take? China’s foreign policies serve the country’s development strategies and aim at maintaining world peace while promoting international cooperation. It could be predicted that China would not change its basic foreign policies, nor its US policy, as it is an important part of its overall foreign policy.



Defense Minister Shoigu on Moscow’s Vision of Security Problems

Por • 19 jul, 2018 • Category: Política

On July 11, Defense Minister Army General Sergey Shoigu elaborated on the problems that cloud the relationship between Moscow and Washington in an interview with Italian Il Giornale. According to him, “American political elite” is to blame for the deterioration of the bilateral ties and no progress on security-related issues. NATO is creating logistics infrastructure for offensive operations against Russia. The construction work is underway to turn the Polish town of Powidz into a hub for the Baltics and Northern Europe. Last year, US Army Europe established a new tactical headquarters in Poznan, Poland. The Polish armed forces will acquire the first strike capability against Russia upon getting US 70 AGM-158B JASSM-ER (extended range) missiles. In November, Poland will host what it calls a “national” exercise. Dubbed Anakonda-2018, the largest event ever staged by the alliance since the end of the Cold War will involve 100,000 troops, 5,000 vehicles, 150 aircraft and helicopters, and 45 warships of NATO members and their enhanced partners. The scope of the training event is mind-boggling.



China weaves financial web to oust Russia and USA from Middle East

Por • 16 jul, 2018 • Category: Política

After China’s successful economic expansion into Central Asia, Beijing proceeded to implement its “Marshall Plan” for the Middle East. China has allocated $20 billion to restore economies of the Arab states. In addition, China and the Arab countries will create an inter-bank association worth three billion dollars. China’s ultimate goal is to oust Russia and the United States from the Middle East by creating a giant financial web that will put the countries of the Middle East countries in economic dependence on China. One may assume that $20 billion allocated to the Middle East within the framework of the Chinese “Marshall Plan” will be invested in the development of interbank connections, as well as in the creation of transport arteries within the framework of One Belt, One Road project.



Why Vietnam’s First RIMPAC Participation Matters

Por • 13 jul, 2018 • Category: Política

While much ink has been spilled about China’s exclusion from the 2018 iteration of the Rim of the Pacific (RIMPAC) exercise, the world’s largest international maritime exercise, Vietnam’s inaugural inclusion in the exercise deserves attention as well. Hanoi’s first foray into RIMPAC, which kicked off on July 1 and will last till July 31, bears noting given the other developments in U.S.-Vietnam relations under U.S. President Donald Trump and the furthering of Washington’s new Free and Open Indo Pacific Strategy (FOIPS).

The Two “Superpowers”: Who Really Controls the Two Countries?

Por • 2 jul, 2018 • Category: Política

You can see the Deep State’s fear in the editorials that the Deep State handed to the Washington Post (June 29) and New York Times (June 29), two of the Deep State’s megaphones, but no longer believed by the vast majority of the American people. The two editorials share the same points and phrases. They repeat the disproven lies about Russia as if blatant, obvious lies are hard facts. Both accuse President Trump of “kowtowing to the Kremlin.” Kowtowing, of course, is not a Donald Trump characteristic. But once again fact doesn’t get in the way of the propaganda spewed by the WaPo and NYT, two megaphones of Deep State lies. The Saker says that Putin finds himself in a similar box, only it doesn’t come from the national security interest, but from the Russian Fifth Column, the Atlanticist Integrationists whose front man is the Russian Prime Minister Medvedev, who represents the rich Russian elite whose wealth is based on stolen assets during the Yeltsin years enabled by Washington. I find The Saker’s explanation the best I have read of the constraints on Putin that limit his ability to represent Russian national interests.



Cesáreo Espinal Vásquez: Estado Piar

Con la frase “zona en reclamación” hemos vivido como ilusos escrupulosos, cuando la patria ha debido sostener y defender con toda propiedad el justo título que le deviene de la Capitanía General de Venezuela desde 1777, ejerciendo desde un principio, la acción reivindicatoria fundamentada en el uti possidetis iuris, imprescriptible y aplicada por la reiterada jurisprudencia de la Corte Internacional de Justicia.
