 India Commits Suicide In New Delhi
By Samar

Gajendra Singh, a farmer from Rajasthan, hanged himself from a tree during an Aam Aadmi Party rally at Jantar Mantar in the heart of New Delhi. Farmers are committing suicide all around the country. India where 70 % of its population are small time farmers who are desperately trying to keep their to heads up the flooding waters of debt and crop loss are dying like flies around a lighted lamp. Now, India's farmer's suicide epidemic has come to the nation's capital. Now nobody can deny it. Now nobody can ignore it. This is a nation's death

Earth Day Message: Double The Native Forest Cover
By Brent Blackwelder

Earth Day began 45 years ago on April 22, 1970. The first Earth Day mobilized huge numbers of people to become active in efforts to curtail pollution and protect important ecosystems like forests. As we approach Earth Day this year, the founder of the Rainforest Action Network, Randy Hayes, and other visionary leaders are calling for a doubling of the native forest canopy on the earth. They are circulating a petition calling on all people to work together to achieve this goal

US Intelligence: Houthis Are Not Iran Proxy
By Robert Barsocchini

HuffPo reports that US intelligence says: Iranian representatives discouraged Houthi rebels from taking the Yemeni capital… Iran is not directing the rebels, who follow a different branch of Shiite Islam than Iran's leaders and are believed to care more about corruption and the distribution of power in Yemen than the spread of Shiite influence across the Middle East. "It remains our assessment that Iran does not exert command and control over the Houthis in Yemen," Bernadette Meehan, a spokeswoman for the National Security Council, told The Huffington Post. "It is wrong to think of the Houthis as a proxy force for Iran," a U.S. intelligence official told The Huffington Post

Libertarians' Civil War Over Ukraine
By Eric Zuesse

Libertarians' civil war over Ukraine is a reflection of the difference between libertarianism's populist base or consumers (which the Pauls rely upon) versus libertrianism's elite source and manufacturerers (which produced and market the ideology, and so have actually created and politically exploited that base). It's like the difference between a manufacturer and a consumer. While the Pauls sell to the consumers, the Kochs have been the main manufacturers during the past forty years

Ukraine's Spate Of Suspicious Deaths Must Be Followed By Credible Investigations
By John Dalhuisen

The killing of journalist Oles Buzyna on a Kyiv street this week was shocking enough in and of itself. According to Ukraine's Interior Ministry, the 45-year-old journalist – who was widely known for his pro-Russian views – was gunned down by masked assailants in a drive-by shooting. But what makes his murder especially chilling is the fact that it is just the latest among a string of suspicious deaths of former allies of Ukraine's deposed former President Viktor Yanukovych. It came only a day after a member of Ukraine's political opposition, Oleg Kalashnikov, was also found shot dead in the capital

EU Israel-Palestine Policy Is Out Of Touch With Reality
By Alan Hart

If Zionism does not resort to a final ethnic cleansing, the day is coming when the Arabs of what is today Greater Israel will outnumber the Jews, so one state for all would lead in time to the de-Zionization of it. The end of the Zionist enterprise. That being so the obvious implication is that getting to the point where a one state solution might be possible would require the EU to play its necessary part in putting Israel on notice that unless it ends its defiance of international law and becomes serious about peace on terms the Palestinians could accept, it will be isolated and subjected to sanctions of the kind that played a major role in pushing South Africa's apartheid regime to its end

The American Torture Story Being Ignored
By Countercurrents

"Stories" of torture by the U.S. authorities are surfacing while the reports are being ignored. Amnesty International USA has accused concerned authorities in the Washington DC of "sweeping under the carpet" a December Senate report that the CIA tortured militants using the so-called "enhanced interrogation techniques" during the post 9/11 War on Terror

After The Bardo Terrorist Attack
By Serge Jordan

The barbarous terrorist attack on the 18 March at the Bardo Museum in Tunis, that claimed 22 lives, represents a watershed in the political situation of post-revolution Tunisia. This appalling event, the first terrorist act of this scale to take place in the heart of the capital, came as a reminder of the stark reality hidden behind the laudatory propaganda of the mainstream media and politicians about the successful "democratic transition."

Making History And Building A Future In The Nevada Desert
By Brian Terrell

The protests at the Nevada Test Site have appropriately been recognized for their historical significance. Perhaps one day tourists to Nevada will leave the casinos for a time to visit Peace Camp as a place of celebration and hope, where humanity turned from its path of destruction. On that day, the Nevada National Security Site, restored and returned to the sovereignty of the Western Shoshone Nation, will be a monument of regret for crimes perpetrated there against the earth and its creatures. This time has not yet come. What will be regarded as the history of the Peace Camp and Test Site, not to mention the history of this planet, is still being written as we walk and as we act

Legacy Of War
By Robert J. Burrowes

A world without violence might not be possible, but we humans are always undertaking things that look impossible at first glance. Besides, my parents always taught me to 'Try. Try again.' I still do. And, at 92, they are still my greatest supporters

End Our Misery - For God's Sake
By Abdul Majid Zargar

Human rights violations in Kashmir will not stop without seriously thinking over demilitarization of the State. Let it start by relocating the army strictly on borders & auxillary forces confined to barracks. Let India's political class not think that by committing these doables, its power over Kashmir will be ruptured. Let required political steps be taken in right earnest to attempt a just solution

Attacks On Christians And Indian Government
By Abdur Rab Khan

Instead of stopping, the cycle of attacks on and vandalism against churches is only spreading. Recently, subversive elements carried out a despicable act at a church in a historical city Agra as well. Incidents of attacks on Christian places of worship and targeting them have occurred one after the other in the past few months

Color Coding Of Communal Politics
By Ram Puniyani

As per the reports from Ahmadabad (12th April 2015) the uniform at Shahpur School; where most of the students are Hindus; is saffron and the color of uniform in Dani Limda school where almost all the students are Muslims; the color is green. This is absolutely shocking! One knew that the ghettoization of Muslims in Ahmadabad is probably the worst in the country but whether the things will go this far was unbelievable. The process of communalization which worsened after the 2002 Gujarat carnage is seeing a new low with incidents like this one
