La Paz (AFP) - Bolivia on Wednesday renounced a visa exemption agreement with Israel in protest over its offensive in Gaza, and declared it a terrorist state.

President Evo Morales announced the move during a talk with a group of educators in the city of Cochabamba.

It “means, in other words, we are declaring (Israel) a terrorist state,” he said.

The treaty has allowed Israelis to travel freely to Bolivia without a visa since 1972.

Morales said the Gaza offensive shows “that Israel is not a guarantor of the principles of respect for life and the elementary precepts of rights that govern the peaceful and harmonious coexistence of our international community.”

More than two weeks of fighting in Gaza have left 1,300 dead and 6,000 wounded amid an intense Israeli air and ground campaign in response to missile attacks by the Islamist militant group Hamas.

In the latest development, 20 people were killed after two Israeli shells slammed into a United Nations school, drawing international protests.

Bolivia broke off diplomatic relations with Israel in 2009 over a previous military operation in Gaza.

In mid-July, Morales filed a request with the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights to prosecute Israel for “crimes against humanity.”

That afternoon, CNN reported that the United States military will be honoring a request from Israel for assistance in the midst of their weeks-long campaign against militants from Hamas residing in Gaza City.

"Since capital is always doing well somewhere, the illusion arises that all will be well everywhere if we only readjust the form of capital to that predominant in Japan and West Germany (the 1980s), the United States (the 1990s) or China (after 2000). Capital never has to address its systemic failings because it moves them around geographically."

How the Term ‘Human Shield’ is Used to Justify State Sponsored Massacres

July 30, 2014
""Freedom" is a grand word, but under the banner of free trade the most predatory wars were conducted; under the banner of free labour, the toilers were robbed. The modern use of the term "freedom of criticism [of Marxism]" contains the same inherent falsehood. Those who are really convinced that they have advanced science would demand, not freedom for the new views to continue side by side with the old [bourgeois views], but the subsitution of the new views for the old."

U.S. Democrats plan to give Israel an addition $225 million for military spending. The same bill also cuts $1 billion of emergency funds meant to deal with the 50,000 undocumented child migrants held in crowded and unsanitary border facilities.
Israel already received $504 million for the joint U.S.-Israel Missle Defense Program for the Fiscal Year of 2014. That is not including the $3.1 Billion the Obama Administration spent on Foreign Military Financing (FMF) for Israel for the Fiscal Year 2014.

Fuck this

no money for water in detroit
no money for public schools
no money for student loan debt relief
no money for healthcare 
no money for crumbling infrastructure
no money for economic investment in inner cities and indian country

The US always has money for war and genocide. Those are our only exports.

Obama, Poroshenko threatened with tribunal for war crimes against Donbass civilians

fuckyeahmarxismleninism:

July 30 - People in the northern Italian region of Veneto are planning to arrange a tribunal of U.S. President Obama, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy and Ukrainian President Poroshenko . All of them will be charged with war crimes against civilians in the Donbass.

The movement for independence of the northern Veneto region of Italy and the revival of the Venetian Republic urged the public to assemble a new “Russell Tribunal” to punish the perpetrators of crimes against the civilian population of the eastern regions of Ukraine.

The main initiator is the head of the “people’s government” of the unrecognized Republic of Venice, Albert Gardin. The activist has gone on hunger strike to draw global attention to the criminal policy of the U.S. and the EU against the residents of Donbass.

"A new Russell Tribunal must be convened to stop the destruction and death in the Donbass. We must save Europe from dictatorship and power of the bureaucracy, Gardin told ITAR-TASS.

"Russell Tribunal" has no legal force, but once had a huge impact on public opinion. The tribunal was originally convened by British activist and philosopher Bertrand Russell and French philosopher and writer, Nobel Prize winner for literature, Jean-Paul Sartre. The Tribunal was investigating crimes during the war in Vietnam. Another "Russell Tribunal" was held in Rome in 1976 to investigate war crimes in Chile. The last meetings of the Tribunal were held in London, Cape Town, New York and Barcelona in 2012, about the war in Palestine.
