As the European Union (EU) is about the launch its long term plan for the ‘migrant crisis’, the leaked EU policy document shows the hypocrisies of our rulers and the repeated denial by the EU of its responsibilities in the root-cause of this crisis and the ongoing civilian deaths.

The Final plan is to be published on Wednesday May, 13.

In a few days’ time millions of living rooms around the world will be filled with the intoxicating sound of football stadiums. Like modern day gladiators, special elite forces of the nations will battle in grand arenas for the biggest sporting trophy in the world. Thankfully, these battles won’t be a fight for life or death. There won’t be wild animals, brutal fighting, blood and killing at the end but there will be something else that is wild about these games and actually has brutalised the lives of millions in Brazil and around the world. That beast is called neoliberal market economy, or simply ‘capitalism’. Like the gladiator battles of the ancient times, these modern day games will be a fight for more wealth, not for the millions in their living rooms and thousands filling the stadiums but for a few who are in the business of football.

Today, there is a sense of joy among the EU and Turkish politicians; a joy that is shared and reported enthusiastically by the mainstream Turkish and European media. The main headlines give the good news in big bold letters: "Visa free travel for Turkish citizens to EU countries!" But wait! There is a much smaller, almost invisible sub-heading underneath this joyfully breaking story: "Readmission Agreement to be signed between EU and Turkey on December 16". Horror hits you!

Starting with the Arab Spring, social media has been the focus of many political debates and analyses. Books are written about social media and its role in social movements. Facebook and Twitter, among other platforms, have become the key focus of social and political analysts, as well as the new generation 'communication experts'.

Antioch, the ancient land within Turkey's border that stretches out into Syria, is a place I went to many times. I fell in love with the place, its people and its complex and multi-cultural history. When you reach the seashore of Seleucia Pieria you are in all places at the same time, divided by modern borders: Syria, Turkey and the Mediterranean Sea. The struggles of Antioch of the past are shining a light to the struggles in the region today...

Mick Wallace, Media hypocrisy and the left.

The rightwing press are having a field day with Mick Wallace’s admission that he has not paid €2.1 million of VAT and interest to the Revenue Commissioners. But the tone of righteous indignation has a distinctly political purpose - they want to associate Mick Wallace with the left in order to claim that there are ‘double standards’ at play.

Since the beginning of this current crisis we have watched crisis meetings, major EU/IMF/ECB summits, and many times, the people of Europe and the world have been told that there are now measures in place and decisions are made to fix the system.

Drama continued on, and 3 years later after yet another summit of the political/economic powers, Greek Mythology kicked in. The Olympian Gods, from Zeus to Hephaestus are upon Euro-Zone. Germany, France, EU, IMF, ECB are all baffled. One can almost hear them whispering WTF?

Have the Gods gone mad?

The minor details surrounding us. Details, that won't event get reported on main stream media. Did you ever wonder who and what decides on whether something is minor to ignore or major enough to report?
