Resistere! Resistere! Resistere! Macerata 13, 14, 15 dicembre 2017


Al via la tre giorni “Resistere! Resistere! Resistere!” promossa dal GUS Gruppo Umana Solidarietà, a Macerata da mercoledì 13 a venerdì 15 dicembre.

Tre giorni per tre diverse forme di Resistenza, da Gramsci alla rivoluzione di Kobane, passando per i venticinque anni della Marcia dei 500 a Sarajevo.

“Macerata è orgogliosa di ospitare questo evento”, afferma la Vicesindaco e Assessore alla cultura del Comune di Macerata Stefania Monteverde, “perché sentiamo che attraverso la Resistenza di Gramsci, del popolo di Sarajevo e di Kobane ritorniamo a parlare di noi stessi, dei nostri valori fondanti”.

Mercoledì 13 dicembre la “Prima” al Teatro Don Bosco con un doppio appuntamento sotto il segno di Antonio Gramsci. Alle 18 la conferenza “Gramsci nel Mondo: Il Pensiero e le nuove Resistenze” che vedrà protagonista il professor Derek Boothman, docente dell’Università di Bologna, introdotto dal dottor Francesco Rocchetti, professore a contratto dell’Università di Macerata. In serata, a partire dalle 21, sul palco del teatro salirà l’attore Fabrizio Saccomanno con il monologo “GRAMSCI, Antonio detto Nino”, di Francesco Niccolini e dello stesso Fabrizio Saccomanno. Lo spettacolo racconta frammenti della vita di uno degli uomini più preziosi del Novecento. Attraverso le sue lettere si delinea la figura di un uomo che ha “resistito” e non si è mai piegato nonostante le cattive condizioni di salute e la spaventosa situazione del mondo carcerario. Provando fino alla fine a prospettare e delineare un modo di affrontare la vita in Europa e nel mondo, senza mai smettere di essere guida morale e pedagogica per le generazioni a venire.

“Dall’esempio gramsciano di lotta agli indifferenti andiamo a raccontare il percorso del GUS in questi ventiquattro anni”, afferma il presidente del Gruppo Umana Solidarietà Paolo Bernabucci. “Partiamo dalla Marcia dei 500 volontari che andarono a rompere l’assedio di Sarajevo e arriviamo alla resistenza del popolo curdo a Kobane che dopo aver sconfitto l’Isis comincia a costruire una società nuova, con un nuovo modo di stare insieme”.

Il GUS è già in Rojava e con l’Associazione UIKI venerdì 15 dicembre presenterà i progetti di cooperazione per la ricostruzione. http://gusitalia.it/

I stand with Palestine. Bella Hadid


I've been waiting to put this into perfect words but I realized there is no perfect way to speak of something so unjust. A very very sad day.Watching the news and seeing the pain of the Palestinian people makes me cry for the many many generations of Palestine. Seeing the sadness of my father, cousins, and Palestinian family that are feeling for our Palestinian ancestors makes this even harder to write. Jerusalem is home of all religions. For this to happen, I feel, makes us take 5 steps back making it harder to live in a world of peace. The TREATMENT of the Palestinian people is unfair, one-sided and should not be tolerated. I stand with Palestine. There is no hate against anyone... There are no sides... All religions living side by side.. Now it is Just one man..it has always been a factor of trying to bring peace... Where is the hope..? - Bella Hadid https://www.instagram.com/p/BcaCVA-n3Yl/

We all have a short life - Ai Weiwei

NIHRF Human Rights Festival Northern Ireland


Each year the 10th December is celebrated as Human Rights Day across the world. The date marks the United Nations General Assembly’s adoption and proclamation of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) in 1948. Civil society groups across the world use this date as an opportunity to celebrate and mark the importance of human rights globally.

Every year a diverse range of organisations across Northern Ireland have traditionally held events in the week surrounding this date to mark the occasion and highlight different aspects of human rights as they apply locally and internationally. In 2012 a number of these organisations came together to pool those individual events into a programme of activities promoted together for the first time as the Northern Ireland Human Rights Festival.

The festival is administered by the Human Rights Consortium in collaboration with organisations from civic society. The distinct events that make up the festival however, are developed and run by organisations and individuals with an interest in the protection and promotion of human rights. The diversity of events and the range of issues covered as part of the festival are reflective of the universal nature of human rights.

It is hoped that the festival will expand over time and become a fixed part of the programme of Northern Ireland festivals while continuing to expand local awareness of the importance of celebrating and protecting human rights.

European New Deal - Yanis Varoufakis



Dear DiEM25 Member,

This is a good time to be a DiEMer.

Last week we “seized the day” and plunged ourselves into a challenging, perilous, but also exciting new phase for our young movement: Yes, we will go for it!

May 2019, here we come!

Our internal vote was decisive: 73% of verified members voted and of those 93% voted “yes”. Even before DiEM25’s second anniversary comes and goes, we shall begin working tirelessly to take our European New Deal, our Progressive Agenda for Europe, to ballot boxed across Europe in the May 2019 European Parliament election.

Whatever happens in the end, this is a historic moment: Never before has a movement tried to present a SINGLE comprehensive policy agenda to ALL Europeans on the basis of ONE party list across our divided and fragmenting Union.

We are in it to win. But our notion of victory is very, very different. Victory for us means putting on the agenda, everywhere, our progressive, moderate, but also radical policy framework. It means doing so in a manner that shows Europeans that a transnational European democracy is not only possible but also that it is already here – in embryonic form within the ranks of DiEM25. It means giving birth to a new politics, a new ethos in the face of elections, a new spirit of electoral engagement by activists who detest ‘authority’ but who contest elections to restore sovereignty to persons, collectives, cities, regions, peoples and Parliaments.

From today, we begin discussions in every country, in every city with civil society and with political actors whose politics is close to our Manifesto and whose policies are consistent with our Progressive Agenda for Europe and our European New Deal. The aim? To prepare, in good time, the SINGLE comprehensive policy agenda to be presented in May 2019 to voters everywhere. Our members, DSCs, National Collectives, the Coordinating Collective, all of us must prepare for this Grand Dialogue across Europe. Let’s begin! Continue

Stop returning people to Afghanistan! Taibeh Abbasi


1000s of students in Norway are doing everything they can to protect their classmate Taibeh from being deported to Afghanistan. Join them and defend all Afghan asylum seekers at risk of deportation from Norway.

Taibeh dreams of graduating from high school next summer and becoming a doctor, but right now she lives in fear of being deported to a country she has never even visited.
Like Taibeh, many other Afghans are at risk of being returned from Norway.

In the past years thousands of Afghans have been returned from Europe, despite evidence that they face serious harm in the country. Norway claims that Afghans can be returned as the country is safe, but 2016 was the deadliest year on record in Afghanistan. Returning people to Afghanistan right now is not only cruel, it is also reckless and illegal.

But people are starting to stand up for those at risk, like the 1000s of students who stand with Taibeh to stop her from being sent to Afghanistan.
Stand up for all the Afghan asylum seekers like Taibeh at risk of being returned to Afghanistan, sign the petition.

Call on the Norwegian government to stop returning people to Afghanistan until the country is stable enough to ensure the safety and dignity. Your voice on this petition will help us to show the Norwegian government that we stand with people at risk of being returned to Afghanistan in Norway.
The Norwegian government thinks we don’t care, show them we do. Sign and share to your networks now. Continue

StopOdioDaTastiera


Erano tutte giovanissime, adolescenti tra i 14 e i 18 anni. Sono morte lungo la traversata dalla Nigeria alle coste italiane. In 26 sono arrivate ieri, senza vita, a Salerno a bordo della nave spagnola Cantabria.
Sulla stessa imbarcazione quasi 400 migranti, tra cui numerosi bambini, alcuni non accompagnati.


La notizia, oltre a essere ripresa da gran parte dei media, compresi i tg delle principali edizioni, ha fatto il giro del web che mai come in questa occasione è stato invaso da reazioni e commenti sconcertanti, anche per chi è ormai abituato al linguaggio d'odio sempre più imperante sui social.

Gianluca Costantini in CONTAR O MUNDO A reportagem em banda desenhada


Gabriel García Márquez chamou ao jornalismo a melhor profissão do mundo. O ofício de analisar, questionar e decifrar a realidade continua a ser um trabalho essencial em qualquer sociedade e a reportagem persiste como o género onde esse trabalho pode fazer-se com um fôlego mais largo, um olhar com múltiplos ângulos, uma procura dedicada das histórias e dos momentos que definem uma história maior. A linguagem da banda desenhada é uma das ferramentas possíveis para esse trabalho. Não será o mais reconhecido, ou o mais óbvio, mas as últimas décadas têm mostrado uma vitalidade assinalável desta relação. Nesta exposição pretendemos mostrar como a banda desenhada responde de modos diversos e com soluções criativas às necessidades de um género jornalístico concreto (mesmo quando lhe empurra os limites em direcções menos canónicas).

Channeldraw hangs drawings, not people | Photo


Performance in TRANSEUROPA 2017, Madrid
A Festival of Arts, Politics and Culture
Matadero, Paseo de la Chopera, 14


During the opening, we will present Channeldraw hangs drawings, not people, a symbolic performance of the artivist Gianluca Costantini, known as Channeldraw, who will hang up his original drawing during the opening session of the Festival. His drawings always deal with reality, with ongoing news and actions, and they are used throughout the World by activist, as well as relatives, for manifestations, flash mob, banners and stickers, petitions and so on. He collaborates with other artists, such as Ai Weiwei and Khalid Albahi, in promoting and spreading powerful arts pointing out where there is a violation of Human rights. Human rights are the main focus of his everyday drawing, in particular against death penalty, still active in many countries. Let’s move for a world where we hang just drawings, not people.
