A New World War for a New World Order?

By Jooneed Khan

Confronted with a declining World Order it can no longer control, does the West want to re-assert its will through a new world war, which this time would be really global?

Michael Sommer: 419.000 Menschen demonstrieren für Gute Arbeit

''Am heutigen 1. Mai, dem Tag der Arbeit, haben sich 419.00 Menschen an über 420 Veranstaltungen und Kundgebungen des Deutschen Gewerkschaftsbundes beteiligt. Die diesjährigen DGB-Kundgebungen standen unter dem Motto: Gute Arbeit in Europa, Gerechte Löhne, Soziale Sicherheit?? DGB-Pressemitteilung vom 1.5.2012, dort Links zu den Reden http://www.dgb.de/presse/++co++b9d9accc-9386-11e1-44e1-00188b4dc422

1. Mai 2012: Richtige Gewerkschaftskritik und falsches Lob

Gewerkschaften: Zum 1. Mai nichts als leere Worte zur Krise

Sie bekennen sich zu sicheren Arbeitsplätzen, zu Mindestlöhnen, zu Tarifautonomie und sozialer Sicherung. Aber um das Elend in Südeuropa haben sich die Arbeiterführer bisher nicht geschert. Kommentar von und bei Günther Lachmann, zuerst erschienen in Die Welt online vom 01.05.12 http://guentherlachmann.wordpress.com/2012/05/01/zum-1-mai-nichts-als-leere-worte

Aus dem Text: ''? Was für ein Theater! Wo haben sie sich denn in den vergangenen zwei Jahren um Europa bemüht? Sie haben die Occupy-Bewegung und all die anderen Protestgruppen ebenso allein gelassen wie jene Bürger, die vor das Bundesverfassungsgericht zogen, um die Rechte der Steuerzahler einzuklagen. Sie haben die Europäische Finanzstabilisierungsfazilität (EFSF) ebenso stillschweigend gutgeheißen wie sie nun den Europäischen Stabilitätsmechanismus (ESM) stillschweigend gutheißen, wohl wissend, dass die Regierungschefs damit die demokratischen Rechte der Völker aushebeln. Ein ums andere Mal goutierten sie die Milliardenzahlungen, die fadenscheinig als ''Hilfspakete für notleidende Südländer'' auf den Weg gebracht wurden, tatsächlich aber auf den Konten der großen Banken landeten. Keiner der ''großen Arbeiterführer'' kann sich damit herausreden, er habe es nicht gewusst. (?) Feine Gewerkschafter sind das, die nicht einmal in Zeiten größter Not zu einem Funken Solidarität und Hilfe in der Lage sind. Sie fabulieren über ein Europa der Arbeitnehmer und gerechte Löhne, scherten sich aber nicht im Geringsten um das, was in Griechenland, Portugal und jetzt in Spanien passierte. (?) Diese Schlaumeier. Und nun, da sich die politische Stimmung in Europa dreht, da Frankreich im ersten Gang der Präsidentschaftswahlen mehrheitlich gegen die deutsche Sparpolitik votiert hat, da die niederländische Regierung darüber zerbrach und sogar der Chef der Europäischen Zentralbank, Mario Draghi, aus purer Verzweiflung ein Wachstumspaket fordert, drehen auch die Gewerkschaftsführer ihr Fähnlein nach dem neuen, frischen Wind??


Ergänzende Gedanken zum 1. Mai: Warum droht der Tag der Arbeit in der Bedeutungslosigkeit zu verschwinden?

''Ohne Frage fällt es den Gewerkschaften heute ausgesprochen schwer, zum Tag der Arbeit viele Menschen zu mobilisieren. 1. Mai Kundgebungen vor 40 Jahren und heute, das ist schon wie Tag und Nacht. Es wäre billig festzustellen, an diesem Niedergang seien die Gewerkschaften schuld. Ganz unschuldig sind sie nicht. Ich habe mir den Aufruf des ´ zum 1. Mai 2012 und ein aktuelles einblick-Interview mit Michael Sommer, dem DGB-Vorsitzenden, angeschaut. Dazu und ergänzend ein paar Anmerkungen. Vielleicht findet der/die eine oder andere Redner/in darin noch Anregungen zur kritischen Anreicherung seiner/ihrer Reden zum 1. Mai?? Artikel von Albrecht Müller in den Nachdenkseiten vom 30. April 2012 http://www.nachdenkseiten.de/?p=13057


Oh je, oh je! Demonstrieren für Europa: Auf der Reeperbahn!

1. Mai-Flugblatt der KollegInnen vom Jour Fixe der Gewerkschaftslinken Hamburg (pdf) http://www.labournet.de/diskussion/gewerkschaft/real/mai2012jf.pdf

Aus dem Text: ?? ''Gute Arbeit für Europa'', lautet die DGB-Parole. Ein Europa mit ''gerechten Löhnen und sozialer Sicherheit''? Träumt ihr Vorständler vom DGB, Verdi oder IGM eigentlich? Die Realität in unserer Arbeitswelt sieht doch ganz anders aus. Enormes Anwachsen der Arbeitslosigkeit in Europa, besonders unter den Jugendlichen, größte soziale Unsicherheit durch die Angst um den Verlust des Arbeitsplatzes, Verarmung und Verelendung großer Schichten, vor allem bei den Rentnern, immer mehr Wanderarbeiter, die von Land zu Land getrieben werden. So sieht das Europa von heute und morgen aus! Es ist das Europa made by EU, made by Troika (EU-Kommission, EZB, IWF). Dieses Europa kann nicht unser Europa sein! Und dafür sollen wir, so möcht?s der DGB, ''gut arbeiten''? Sollen wir lachen oder weinen?...''


''Gerechte Löhne'' statt hohe? ''Gute Arbeit für Europa'' statt für Geld?''Soziale Sicherheit'' für prekäre Existenzen, die wohl immer dazu gehören? Die verkehrten Forderungen des DGB Flugblatt des GegenStandpunkts zum 1. Mai und zur Kritik an den DGB-Forderungen (pdf) http://www.labournet.de/diskussion/gewerkschaft/real/mai2012gs.pdf


Arbeitnehmervertretung: Respekt, Kollegen. Die Gewerkschaften treten wieder selbstbewusst auf, das ist gut für den Wirtschaftsstandort Deutschland.

''Liebe Kollegen von den Gewerkschaften, Euch wurde unrecht getan, auch von der ZEIT. In den vergangenen zehn Jahren wurde über alles Mögliche geschrieben, aber kaum über Gewerkschaften und nicht ein einziges Mal war der Tenor positiv. In der breiten Öffentlichkeit wurden Arbeitnehmervertreter lange Zeit als »Betonköpfe« beschimpft, als »Bremser« und »Gestrige«, die man nicht mehr brauche. Es ist höchste Zeit, dieses Bild zu korrigieren?'' Artikel von Kolja Rudzio in Die Zeit online vom 01.05.2012 http://www.zeit.de/2012/18/01-Gewerkschaften

Aus dem Text: ''? In der vergangenen Krise zeigte sich noch ein Vorteil kollektiver Vereinbarungen: Da musste nicht mit jedem Arbeitnehmer einzeln verhandelt werden, wie sich vielleicht Jobs retten ließen. Stattdessen griffen Arbeitszeitkonten und tarifliche Regeln für den Notfall. Neben der gesetzlichen Kurzarbeit half vor allem das, den Sturz abzufedern, wie Studien belegen. Auch Gewerkschaftern und Betriebsräten hat es Deutschland also zu verdanken, dass es so glimpflich davonkam.Überhaupt steht die deutsche Wirtschaft gerade dort, wo die Gewerkschaften stark sind, unglaublich gut da. (?) Das zeigt: Durchsetzungsfähige Arbeitnehmer und wettbewerbsfähige Firmen sind kein Gegensatz. Im Gegenteil, große Gewerkschaften können sogar leichter auf die wirtschaftliche Lage Rücksicht nehmen. Sie müssen sich nicht mit extremen Forderungen profilieren, wie manche Splittertruppe. Und sie wissen, welches Gewicht ihre Lohnabschlüsse haben. Wenn sie überziehen, steigen die Kosten auf so breiter Fläche, dass Jobs in Gefahr geraten. Machtvolle Gewerkschaften spüren diese Verantwortung. Das haben sie bewiesen??

Internationales Manifest vor weltweitem Protesttag veröffentlicht

''Parlamentarische UN-Versammlung soll G8 und G20 ersetzen, internationale Institutionen wie der IWF sollen demokratisiert werden. Während hunderttausende Menschen in aller Welt sich darauf vorbereiten, im Zuge eines global koordinierten Protesttages für globalen Wandel auf die Strasse zu gehen, hat eine internationale und bewegungsübergeifende Versammlung aus Unterstützern der Occupy-Bewegung, von Take the Square sowie von lateinamerikanischen, afrikanischen, asiatischen und nahöstlichen sozialen Gruppen ein Manifest veröffentlicht, das konkrete Vorschläge macht, wie dieser globale Wandel aussehen sollte?'' Dossier von Friedrich Brandi in telepolis vom 11.05.2012 http://www.heise.de/tp/blogs/8/151982

Aus dem Text: ''? Obwohl das Manifest Anfang des Monats von den Teilnehmern der internationalen Versammlung im Konsens angenommen wurde, wurde besonders hervorgehoben, dass es nicht für alle in den verschiedenen Bewegungen spreche und dies auch nicht beansprucht werde. In einer heute veröffentlichten Pressemitteilung sagte Alvaro Rodriguez von der spanischen Indignados-Bewegung, der an dem Manifest mitschrieb, es spiegele nicht die Position der lokalen und regionalen Versammlungen wider. Vielmehr bestehe der nächste Schritt darin, ''das Statement den Versammlungen in aller Welt vorzustellen, damit sie es als Teil eines gemeinsamen Dialogs aller Bewegungen des globalen Frühlings diskutieren und Änderungen vorschlagen können''?''

Siehe dazu: MAY 12TH GlobalMay Statement

''We are living in a world controlled by forces incapable of giving freedom and dignity to the world s population (if, indeed, they ever were). A world where we are told ?there is no alternative? to the loss of rights achieved through the long, hard struggles of our ancestors?''

John Brennan, President Obama s chief adviser on counterterrorism, has again put on public display two unfortunate facts: (1) that the White House has no clue as to how to counter terrorism; and (2) (in Brennan s words) ''the unfortunate fact that to save many innocent lives we are sometimes obliged to take lives.''

Waking up to the drones

Look at these photographs. See the eager faces among the children at the school, they could be anyone s kids at any moment in America. And the baby, so precious and new, reflecting the light of his proud parents, the hope of everyone around him. Now imagine that the school is attacked by Predator drones launching Hellfire missiles directly into the classrooms. ... According to the Bureau of Investigative Journalism, there have been upwards of 350 U.S. military and CIA drone strikes on Yemen and Pakistan since 2004, with the majority in Yemen (20 to 36) occurring in the last two months. As if their children were less valuable than our own, most Americans either ignore or remain passive-aggressively ignorant of the civilian carnage associated with these so-called 'targeted strikes'...

The limbo of death row

CounterPunch
by Ron Jacobs

06/02/12

The death penalty is a fact of life in the United States. Despite the actions of many well-intentioned people, these premeditated murders continue to take place at a shameful pace. The fact that the death penalty does exist has brought many young people to question the morality of a system that supports and even champions execution. Unlike the other form of murder carried out by the state, war, the death penalty is harder to rationalize for many people.

Big Moneys' Effect on Big Media

Bill Moyers, Moyers & Co.: ''Big money and big media have coupled to create a ?Disney World' of democracy in which TV shows, televised debates, even news coverage is being dumbed down, just as the volume is being turned up. The result is a public certainly more entertained, but less informed and personally involved than they should be, says Marty Kaplan, director of USC's Norman Lear Center and an entertainment industry veteran. Bill Moyers talks with Kaplan about how taking news out of the journalism box and placing it in the entertainment box is hurting democracy and allowing special interest groups to manipulate the system.''
