Prensa Latina is posting below the full text of Fidel Castro’s reflection.

THIS brutal military alliance has become the most perfidious tool of repression known in the history of humanity.

NATO assumed this global repressive role as soon as the USSR, which had served as the U.S. pretext for its creation, disappeared. Its criminal purpose became obvious in Serbia, a country of Slavic origin, whose people heroically struggled against the Nazis during World War II.

‘Arabs disgusted by Gaddafi’s killing’ — RT

25 October 2011 — ‘Arabs disgusted by Gaddafi’s killing’ — RT

­The remains of Colonel Gaddafi, his son Mutassim and a top aide have finally been buried after days on public display. But according to Chandan, the issue of former leader’s death is still a running story.

Over the past 15 months the dusty plains of the northern Negev desert in Israel have been witness to a ritual of destruction, part of a police operation known as Hot Wind. On 29 occasions since June 2010, hundreds of Israeli paramilitary officers have made the pilgrimage over a dirt track near the city of Beersheva to the zinc sheds and hemp tents of al-‘Araqib.

“I Demand to Know What You’re Demanding!” Some Remarks on Programme at OccupyLSX By Dan Hind

24 October 2011 — The Return of the Public

There is something very striking about the occupation in the City of London. From the outset the ordinary dynamics of protest appeared to have been suspended. The form was different, for a start.
