" Ξέρεις κάτι; Η Ελλάδα πεθαίνει.
Πεθαίνουμε σα λαός. Κάναμε τον κύκλο μας, δεν ξέρω πόσες χιλιάδες χρόνια, ανάμεσα σε σπασμένες πέτρες και αγάλματα.
Και πεθαίνουμε....
Αλλά αν είναι να πεθάνει η Ελλάδα, να πεθάνει γρήρορα. Γιατί η αγωνία κρατάει πολύ και κάνει πολύ θόρυβο..."

Refugee camp massacre: Libyan militia launch racist raid

Heavily armed fighters have attacked a camp of about 1,500 refugees on the outskirts of Tripoli, opening fire on its inhabitants. At least six were killed in the incident raising fears that civilians have little protection from militias running amokMoreover, the fact that the attack took place just outside the capital itself begs the question of just how much control the interim government actually has over the country.
"Men from Misrata came to the camp [in Janzour district] at 10 o'clock [Monday]. We knew they were from Misrata because it was written all over their cars," camp resident Huda Bel-Eid said at Tripoli Medical Hospital, Al Jazeera reports.
According to various reports between six and twelve people were killed, including children, women and the elderly. The area around the camp was cut off by the attackers to prevent any help reaching the refugees.

Why he is boycotting Israel. Robert Del Naja of Massive Attack tells William Parry

The movement for a cultural boycott of Israel in response to its treatment of the Palestinians, modelled on the boycott of apartheid South Africa, could eclipse decades of disingenuous political charades in engaging western intellectuals, academics and artists. Internationally renowned figures such as Naomi Klein and Ken Loach have supported the call, and now one of Britain's most successful bands, Massive Attack, is publicly backing the boycott.

“I've always felt that it's the only way forward," Robert Del Naja, the band's lead singer, tells me when we meet at the Lazarides gallery in Fitzrovia, London. Del Naja is an artist as well as musician and his face and fingers are speckled with paint. Dozens of his pictures are strewn 
all over the wooden floorboards, drying. "It's a system that's been applied to many countries. It's a good thing to aim for because it applies the continual pressure that's needed." Musicians have a history of rallying the public to supporting political causes. The global anti-apartheid movement got the fillip it desperately needed when musicians began supporting it. The single "Sun City" by Artists United Against Apartheid in 1985 and the 70th-birthday tribute concert for Nelson Mandela at Wembley in 1988 catapulted the cause into millions of ordinary homes. I think musicians have a major role to play," Del Naja says. "I find the more I get involved, the more the movement becomes something tangible. I remember going to 'Artists Against Apartheid' gigs, and 'Rock Against Racism' gigs around the same sort of time. Bands like the Clash and the Specials had a lot to do with influencing the minds of the youth in those days."

The Three Demands of Silver

INTRODUCING THE GOVERNMENT’S NEWEST UNPAID SPY: YOU

One of the most terrifying aspects of George Orwells seminal work 1984 was his description of how society had turned into one giant police agency. People were encouraged to rat each other out, groomed since childhood to be unpaid government spies: 
[Children] adored the Party and everything connected with it… All their ferocity was turned outwards, against the enemies of the State, against foreigners, traitors, saboteurs, thought-criminals. It was almost normal for people over thirty to be frightened of their own children.”
The Department of Homeland Security’s “If you see something, say something…” is not too far off from this paradigm– encouraging citizens to rat each other out to the police for the mere suspicion of potential wrong-doing.
DHS Introducing the governments newest unpaid spy: YOUDHS Secretary Janet Napolitano even made a special appearance at last Sunday’s Super Bowl to get the message out about ‘public vigilance,’ and ensure that the entire city of Indianapolis was blanketed with advertisements from her Big Brother campaign.

Israeli union federation launches nationwide strike


Israel's main trade union federation has launched a national strike intended to shut down government offices, banks, airports, ports and rail services.
Histadrut said it was in protest at the government's use of contract workers, who often earn less and receive fewer benefits than permanent employees.
Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz said the strike was unnecessary and would harm the country's economy.
The Israeli Chambers of Commerce put the cost at about $100m (£63m) a day.
The high court rejected a petition against the strike by the chambers of commerce on Tuesday, saying it did not see a reason to intervene.
Overnight talks between the finance ministry and Histadrut also failed.
