By Gaither Stewart

http://www.countercurrents.org/stewart070915.htm

Let's be clear: the direct, primary, basic, fundamental cause of the migration of peoples of Africa and Middle East is imperialist USA- sponsored, instigated, backed, prompted when not directly conducted wars in Iraq, Syria AND Libya and throughout most of Africa


The Refugee Crisis: It Has Been A Long Time Coming
By Kieran Kelly

http://www.countercurrents.org/kelly070915.htm

The world has suddenly realised that there is a "refugee crisis". There are more refugees now than at any time since World War II. The number has grown three-fold since the end of 2001. The problem is treated as if it arose just recently, but it has been a long time coming. The pressure has been building and building until it has burst the dams of wilful ignorance

Edward Snowdon Should Leave Russia For Germany
By Ludwig Watzal

http://www.countercurrents.org/watzal070915.htm

Edward Snowdon should take the chance to come to Germany. Chancellor Angela Merkel can't dare to extradite him to a country where he faces the death penalty. Only in this case, the United States is no better than Saudi Arabia and Iran


Sanctioned Terrorism
By Soraya Sepahpour-Ulrich

http://www.countercurrents.org/ulrich070915.htm

Who is a terrorist? Undoubtedly, what comes to mind is Daesh (ISIL), al-Qaeda, MKO, Boko Haram, etc. What is terrorism? The events of 9/11 and the gruesome beheadings carried out by Daesh shape our visual perception of terrorism. What is left unmentioned and unrecognized in our collective psyche is the kind of terrorism that has been deliberately obfuscated: sanctioned terrorism or terrorism with a license – sanctions

The Misinterpretation: Microfinance, NGOs And Neoliberalism
In Bangladesh - Part 4: Two Trends
By Farooque Chowdhury

http://www.countercurrents.org/chowdhury070915.htm

There are steps that strengthen neoliberal approach in Bangladesh. Capital virtually moves unbridled. With unimaginable speed and skill, public enterprises were thrown into virtual loot-market. Years-old "story" says: A setting was constructed to make appear public enterprises unworthy. A part of trade union leadership was usurped by lumpens, a part of media joined them, and they facilitated creating a setting to shut down and sell out public enterprises at prices equivalent to a few pennies. Health and education, two soft areas in public mind, were made areas for private capital's free ride. Energy sector has also been made a profitable area for private capital


Manipur Chaos: Lost In Translation
By Linda Chhakchhuak

http://www.countercurrents.org/chhakchhuak070915.htm

Some folklore say that Manipur is land of the three brothers. They are the Meitei, Naga and the Kuki communities. But as most brotherhood stories go they inevitably ended up disagreeing and quarrelling over the inheritance left by their fathers. This myth seems to sum up the history of this troubled northeastern state of India which is once again engulfed in blood, soot and tears

Food Fight 2015: Taking Down The Degenerators
By Ronnie Cummins

http://www.countercurrents.org/cummins060915.htm

To reverse global warming and restabilize the climate, we will need not only to slash CO2 emissions by 90 percent or more, taking down King Coal and Big Oil and converting to renewable sources of energy, but we must also simultaneously remove or draw down 100-150 ppm of the excess (400 ppm) CO2 and greenhouse gases that are already overheating our supersaturated atmosphere. How do we accomplish the latter? Through regenerative agriculture and land use


@Google: Your Latest Ad Also Moves Us South Asians To Tears
By Simran Kaur

http://www.countercurrents.org/kaur060915.htm

In true Google spirit, that first protest against Modi's visit should come from none than Google's CEO. He now has an opportunity to truly represent what it means to be an Indian at Google, what it means to practice Google's "Leadership that Empowers." If he still isn't sure about what message Google's advertisement of Modi will send to those victim-survivors who have been silenced and tarnished in Modi's India, he knows what to do. Google It
