Position regarding the rising tensions caused by the Iranian nuclear programme

Since the International Atomic Energy Agency report into the current status of the Iranian nuclear programme was issued in November 2011, Israel, the USA and her allies have been quick to step up their criticism of the Iranian government and their real intentions in the face of Tehran’s repeated denial of any attempt to develop nuclear weapons(1). According to the IAEA report Iran’s nuclear programme could have a military purpose. Read more »

Declaration regarding the situation in Syria

World without Wars and Violence has been observing the dramatic events taking place in Syria in recent months with profound concern.  It is clear that the non-violent popular protests in Tunisia and Egypt were not taken as models in the case of Libya.  There, European governments and the USA, instead of reinforcing peaceful and nonviolent initiatives, backed the path of war and armed confrontation.  Today Gaddafi has been brought down but, as in the case of Iraq and others, Libya has been totally devastated and is now in a situation of social disaster with countless number Read more »

The new moment and the War of the Markets

There are sufficient indicators to interpret that we have entered a new moment in international matters.  What started in Tunisia and Egypt with the “Arab Spring” has extended to numerous countries on different continents: from the Outraged of Spain and Greece, to Chile where students are demanding free and good quality education through massive, non-violent demonstrations.  The wave is not stopping; on the contrary, it’s growing day by day.  People are waking up and channelling their protests through novel movements and new forms of struggle that are gai Read more »

Regarding the situation in Libya

The Arab Spring continues to spread throughout the Arab world.  Another dictator has gone and Libya, which has been ruled by one of the longest-lasting and most bloodthirsty dictators, is turning the page on an era characterised by the reign of one individual and one family without any respect for democracy and even basic standards of human rights.
