THROUGHOUT THE PAST five and a half months, Israel has waged a full-spectrum war against the civilian population of the Gaza Strip. The United States and other Western nations have supplied not only the weapons for this war of annihilation against the Palestinians, but also key political and diplomatic support.

The results of the actions of this coalition of the killing have been devastating. Conservative estimates hold that more than 31,000 Palestinians have been killed, including 13,000 children. More than 8,000 people remain missing, many of them believed to have died in the rubble of buildings destroyed in Israeli attacks. Famine conditions are now present in large swaths of the Gaza Strip. The fact that the International Court of Justice has found grounds to investigate Israel for plausible acts of genocide in Gaza has not deterred the U.S. and its allies from continuing to facilitate Israel’s war.

The massive scale of human destruction caused by the attacks would pose grave challenges to well-equipped hospitals. In Gaza, however, many health care facilities have been decimated by Israeli attacks or evacuated, while a few remain open but severely limited in the care and services they offer. Israeli forces have repeatedly laid siege to hospital facilities, killing hundreds of medical workers and taking captive scores of others, despite thousands of internally displaced Palestinians sheltering in the health care complexes. This week, Israel again launched raids on Al-Shifa Hospital, reportedly killing more than 140 people.

For months, doctors across Gaza have performed amputations and other high-risk procedures without anesthetics or proper operating rooms. Antibiotics are in short supply and often unavailable. Communicable diseases are spreading, as hundreds of thousands of Palestinians are forced to live in makeshift shelters with little access to toilets or basic sanitary supplies. Many new mothers are unable to breastfeed and infant formula shortages are common. Israel has repeatedly blocked or delayed aid shipments of vital medical supplies to Gaza. Basic preventative medical care is nearly nonexistent, and medical experts predict that malnutrition will condemn a new generation of young Palestinians to a life of developmental struggles... ...

SREDA 15. maj, 19h --- Učesnice-i: Marija Obradović, Vida Knežević, Abdelraheem Kheirawi, Rade Pantić --- Ista tematska meta i odstojanje kao na prva dva seminara: Cilj je da se razmotre teme kapitalističke (polu)periferije iz teorijskog i praktičnog ugla, u smislu njihovog razumevanja u svakodnevnim društvenim borbama i debatama kao i njihovog značaja u okvirima i ciljevima programa partija, političkih pokreta, istraživačkih i aktivističkih platformi. Usled retkih rasprava na ovu temu, čini se da je pozicija kapitalističke periferije ili nešto što svi podrazumevaju i smatraju nepromenjivim, zbog čega je nije potrebno ni uzimati u obzir, ili je ta tema ciljano, čak neminovno isključena iz diskusija jer dovodi u pitanje brojne vladajuće i samorazumljive pojmove i perspektive (na primer: rast, razvoj, lokalne i globalne integracije, pravna i vrednosna utemeljenja i opredeljenja itd). ________________________________________

Haićanski revolucionari, sa kontrolom nad novoosnovanom nezavisnom crnačkom republikom, su 1804. godine pred sobom imali teško pitanje: šta učiniti sa poljskim vojnicima koji su ostali zaglavljeni na ostrvu a borili su se na strani Haitija? // The Ongoing Struggle in Haiti: Race, Anti-Imperialism and Pseudo-Multilateral Domination in an Age of Waning American Hegemony In 1804 Haitian revolutionaries now in charge of their newly independent Black nation were confronted with a perplexing task: what should be done with a population of Polish soldiers stuck on the island who fought on the side of Haiti?
