Even though the Aegean Sea in winter is cold and rough, conditions for migrants in Turkey are so harsh that over 102,000 of them have crossed the narrow waters from Turkey to the Greek islands since Jan. 1, according to an estimate of the International Organization of Migrants.This is just a small part of the nearly 5 million Syrians who are refugees from the violent war that the United States and its NATO allies — like France, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Turkey — and its allies in the Gulf region — like Saudi Arabia and Qatar — have fomented, instigated and manipulated.Now NATO, at the request of the European Union, has sent a flotilla of ships to the Aegean Sea to restrict and control this flux of refugees.In the Balkans, Macedonia closed its border with Greece to all but a handful of refugees each day, beginning mid-February. Since between 1,000 and 2,000 refugees a day enter Greece, the Greek government has turned its passenger terminals in Piraeus, the port where the ferries dock, into temporary reception centers. Videos and photos show thousands of people — families with children, elders, youth, men and women — stretched out on the floors or waiting on long lines for a meal.As the refugees keep on coming, they have spread out to the squares, traffic circles and sidewalks of Athens. The Greek authorities estimate that as of Feb. 27 there were 20,000 refugees on the streets and in temporary shelters in the capital city.Small states like Macedonia, Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia and Albania — countries in the western Balkans on the refugees’ route north — are virtual colonies of the wealthy powers of the European Union, especially the big imperialist powers like Germany. If pressured by the big powers to prevent the refugees from continuing their trip, they have few options but to close their borders.Many refugees — at least 2.6 million, according to UNHCR [U.N. Refugee Agency] estimates — who are fleeing from the fighting that the war on Syria has engendered have wound up in Turkey. Those in western Turkey need to cross just a few miles of water to reach islands belonging to Greece. Many attempt the crossing.Greece, one of the poorest countries in Europe, has been quickly giving this massive flux of refugees travel documents and sending them on to the wealthier countries they aim to reach. This strategy depends on a friendly reception for the refugees in much wealthier Germany, England and France. These last two countries have accepted only a minuscule number of refugees.AKEL, which is the Progressive Party of Cypriot Workers, released a statement Feb. 10 on the situation of the refugees and the NATO intervention:“NATO’s involvement in the management of flows of refugees in the Aegean Sea, following the objectives of Turkey and Germany, is a dangerous development. The new measures and mechanisms that the European Union and NATO are providing pose blatant threats to the sovereignty of their member states. At the same time, the intensification of repression against refugees and the militarization of the crisis foretells other tragedies in the Aegean and the Mediterranean.”The statement concludes:“AKEL reaffirms that there is no other definitive solution to the refugee crisis than the end of the bloody civil war in Syria.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Resistance is rising to fight U.S. atrocities against im/migrants and refugees, with massive marches set for June 30. Taking part in those protests, including at the U.S./Mexico border in McAllen, Texas, is the new group, FIRE, which issued the following call:The news from the border has been impossible to ignore, even for those who tend to overlook the war on im/migrants. Parents weep as their children are ripped from their arms to be taken to concentration camps and placed in cages. The Border Patrol shoots an unarmed indigenous Guatemalan woman in the head. A trans woman fleeing patriarchal violence is left to die in a so-called “ice box.”But is this inhumanity and destruction of families new to this country? How many families were destroyed in the genocide and forced displacement of the Indigenous Nations of this land? During slavery, African people were auctioned off after being torn from their families and put in chains. In the 1940s the U.S. forced Japanese immigrants and their descendants into internment camps. In recent times, the prison system, for-profit or government-run, has separated millions from their families and communities.FIRE — Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere — is a newly formed, multinational, multigender, grassroots movement comprised of migrant rights advocates, students, teachers, unionists, socialists, Black Lives Matter, anti-imperialists and other activists. We believe that not just the Republican Party, but the Democratic Party as well, is to blame for this crisis. Migrants have been forced into the U.S. and Europe because of policies hatched in Washington and Wall Street. People fighting on their own behalf is the only solution.The aim of FIRE is to melt ICE, Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Not to reform it, or change its management, or any other half-measure. To fight for im/migrants, we must get rid of ICE entirely. It means dismantling concentration camps for immigrants and tearing down any racist border wall that Trump tries to build. Fighting for refugees means understanding that many im/migrants are fleeing conditions at home created by the U.S. And we must understand the global character of this crisis.The root cause of migration in this age is imperialism, the highest stage of capitalist development. Whether through wars and military strikes in the Middle East, far-right coups in Honduras in 2009 and Brazil in 2016, or draining countries’ wealth so they are unable to respond to natural disasters like the earthquake in Haiti, imperialism creates the conditions that im/migrants and refugees are fleeing.The ruling class also creates refugees through its blatant disregard for the environment, even as floods, storms and/or expanding deserts displace millions. Climate change and capitalist austerity have devastated Puerto Rico, leaving almost 5,000 dead and displacing tens of thousands more.This criminal treatment is not unique to the U.S. While trying to pass refugees onto neighboring countries, many European states confiscate their valuables before placing them in camps. The imperialist countries vie for cheap labor and natural resources while cooperating to deny the most basic humanity to their victims.This country’s working class has not sat idly by. There have been demonstrations in cities across the country, including occupations of ICE centers, with countless more planned for the coming weeks.In the face of working-class power, the Trump administration has hastily issued an executive order, hoping to pacify the growing people’s resistance. But facts are stubborn, and this so-called “retreat” does not begin to end the policy of family separation.Trump hopes to resolve the crisis by replacing child concentration camps with family ones, as if the problem were not the concentration camps themselves! At the same time, he ramped up the status of “illegal” border crossings from a civil offense to a criminal one. Once parents have a criminal conviction, the state again has free rein to take their children! The executive order also allows migrants to be detained indefinitely and asks the Pentagon to open camps on military bases.The Democratic Party and the corporate media loyal to it seem content with this “solution,” as long as it is followed up with an electoral victory in November. The Democrats are desperate to portray themselves as defenders of migrant families when in truth they were enthusiastic participants in creating this horror. Even beyond the record of “deporter in chief,” Obama, whose administration built many of these detention centers in the first place, or the Clinton-era law that drastically lowered the threshold for deportation, the Democrats have always been complicit in the crimes of U.S. imperialism.It falls upon the workers and the oppressed of this country to fight to end these crimes and for liberation from the system that fosters them. We won’t be fooled by partial retreats and a kinder face to concentration camps. We call on the multinational, multigender working class to join with us to dismantle ICE and the racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic imperialist system that created it.We ask you to help us do something simple, though not easy: Fight for Im/migrants and Refugees Everywhere — FIRE!To contact FIRE: Website ourfire.net, email [email protected], postal address FIRE, c/o Solidarity Center, 147 West 24th Street, New York, NY, 10011, or call 212-633-6646.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The storm’s strong winds downed power lines, wiped cell signals and created power outages. The storm dumped 19 inches of snow in two days, breaking a record set in 1934 by more than 5 inches, according to Matthew Jackson, a National Weather Service senior meteorologist.

Yuriy Lutsenkoany said any possible crime “happened two or three years before Hunter Biden became a member of the board.” Hunter Biden became director in 2014 while Joe Biden was vice president.The comment comes in response to the recent efforts by President Trump to start just such an investigation, efforts that pushed House Democrats to launch an impeachment inquiry.

News RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan RSF_en Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says BelarusRussiaEurope – Central Asia Protecting journalists ImprisonedImpunityPredators Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia News The “editor-in-chief” of the Russian state-funded media outlets Rossiya Segodnya, RT and Sputnik has publicly congratulated Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko on the hijacking of an airliner to Minsk and the arrest of journalist Raman Pratasevich last month. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) deplores her comments, which amount to open support for the crackdown by the Belarusian government on independent media. (crédit : Margarita Simonian / Twitter) News June 2, 2021 Russian media boss drops the pretence and defends Belarus crackdown Receive email alerts Читать на русском / Read in RussianThe Ryanair flight carrying more than a hundred passengers from Athens to Vilnius was diverted to the Belarusian capital on 23 May after it was falsely reported there was a bomb on board, and led to the arrest of Pratasevich who was on the plane. Writing on Twitter, Margarita Simonyan expressed her admiration for the Belarusian government and congratulated Lukashenko: “I never thought that I would envy Belarus for anything. But now I’m jealous in a way. Batka (Lukashenko) played it beautifully.”“Such comments amount to welcoming the crackdown on Belarusian journalists, which is shocking coming from someone who often invokes freedom of the press when it comes to defending the interests of the media organisations that she runs,” RSF Secretary General Christophe Deloire said.“The Munich Charter of ethics states in article 2 that journalists should ‘defend freedom of information, comment and criticism’ and Margarita Simonyan is doing the opposite, which says a lot about her idea of freedom. In arresting Raman Pratasevich, the Belarusian authorities have breached the international right to press freedom, which they ferociously trample underfoot every day. Moreover, the video showing the journalist speaking with a swollen face suggests that he had most probably been beaten, perhaps even tortured.”Simonyan has led RT since 2005, as well as the state-funded media group Rossiya Segodnya, which controls the Sputnik network amongst others. She is a pillar of Russian propaganda and makes no bones about attacking independent journalists. In a televised debate in February, she said that independent news organisations in Russia were in the pay of U.S. intelligence and “will be tried for spying and treason”.The news organisation she runs openly supported the Belarusian state broadcaster BT during a strike by its staff in August 2020. In response to an appeal by Lukashenko, “Russian specialists” from RT travelled to Minsk to fill the gaps caused by the strike and the resignation of hundreds of BT employees in protest against fraudulent presidential election results.“You were important to us in this difficult period,” the head of the station Belarus 1 said later in thanking RT correspondent Konstantin Pridybailo.These days, the flagship news broadcasts on Belarus 1 have adopted a style and rhetoric similar to the “Vremia” and “Vesti” newscasts on Russian state television and use the same studio experts, as noted by the Russian independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta. Belarus fell five places to 158th out of 180 countries in the 2021 World Press Freedom Index compiled by RSF.

to go further Reporters Without Borders (RSF) and Journalist in Danger (JED) condemn the repeated threats against journalists in Kasaï-Central province, in the south-central part of the Democratic Republic of Congo. In the latest instances, both provincial deputy governor Justin Milonga and Jean Shesh, the administrator of the province’s Mweka region, went so far as to threaten the families of journalists in an attempt to silence their reporting. RSF and JED deplore such flagrant attacks on freedom of information, which are unworthy of a democratic government, and call on the authorities to stop persecuting the media. News RSF_en February 16, 2021 Find out more May 9, 2017 Deputy governor threatens to “kill” journalist’s wife and children Follow the news on Democratic Republic of Congo JED’s press release follows:8 May 2017“Your wife and children will have to die for you to finally understand,” Kasaï-Central province deputy governor Justin Milonga told Edouard Diyi, the head of Radio Télévision Kasaï Horizons (KHRT), a radio and TV station based in Kananga, the provincial capital.In the opinion of Journalist in Danger (JED), this threat was too explicit and too serious not to be taken seriously, especially in a province where violence is common and journalists put their lives on the line every day.According to the information obtained and corroborated by JED, Diyi was covering a protest outside the governor’s office on 5 May when he was verbally attacked by Milonga, who clearly did not appreciate his presence.Milonga told him: “So you’re here, Edouard. I’ve told you many times but you don’t change. All of the provincial security council’s members are fed up with you. I’ll have you arrested. I will personally follow your case closely to see that happens. You know me well. I will get rid of your radio station. We battle day and night to deal with the security situation and you just fuel the tension. I think your wife and children will have to die for you to finally understand.”In Mweka, a city in the same province 250 km northwest of Kananga, Radio Télévision Mweka reporter Jérôme Mwana Nsthieyi fears for his life after criticizing certain Brahmanist preachers and accusing them of straying from the sect’s philosophy.A group of armed men stormed into Nsthieyi’s home at around 7 am on 6 May, when he was not there, searched the house from top to bottom and then left with his wife. They forcibly took her to the home of Mweka’s administrator, where she was ordered to tell them where he was. She was finally released at around 6 pm.JED is extremely concerned about the repeated threats against journalists in recent months in Kasaï-Central province, where they are constantly targeted by both the provincial authorities and the Kamuina Nsapu militia.JED calls on the provincial authorities to put a stop to this persecution.
