Journalist Hadda Hazem on hunger strike. DR.

I’ll be back again to assure you of my support as a patriot and as a columnist for the American Herald Tribune newspaper whose columns are open to you. I personally undertake to translate all the texts you want to publish into English. Personally, I know the hunger strikes because I made three of them, and I am still suffering from them until today. I advise you to pay close attention to you. You must drink a lot of water and especially no sugar water, which is very bad for the kidneys. Few people know it. Once again I assure you of all my brotherly and friendly support. Unfortunately, in today’s Algeria, patriots are mistreated while terrorists and mobsters thrive. Good luck, dear friend.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: How do you explain the decline of the American Left?

Louis Proyect: The left that I joined in 1967 embraced a “Marxist-Leninist” model that led to deeply sectarian concepts and even cult-like tendencies. This was true of both Trotskyist groups, such as the one I belonged to, and Maoist groups. I have written many articles about these problems that can be read at:  http://www.columbia.edu/~lnp3/mydocs/organization.htm but would recommend “Lenin in Context” as a good place to start.

In order to enlighten the Algerian people about the means proposed by the Algerian Government to « counter » the economic crisis experienced by Algeria, and to remove any ambiguity about the use of the printing press, I contacted the eminent economist, Dr. Paul Craig Roberts who was Economic Advisor to President Reagan and Undersecretary of the Treasury in the Reagan administration in the early 1980s, and who became known as one of the founding fathers of the Reaganomics particularly by his contribution to the reform of the « Tax Act » of 1981.

Noureddine Boukrouh. DR.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: Your book « Islam Without Islamism: Life and Thought of Malek Bennabi » is a relevant and necessary book to understand Islam and Islamism.According to you, can we say that Islamism is the negation of Islam?

Noureddine Boukrouh: There was a time, from 18th to 20th, where these two words were synonyms in the European languages because they meant one and the same thing, the religion of Islam. In the Arabic language, the word « Islamism » did not exist because it had no purpose. Islam was almost the same everywhere and, more importantly, Muslims did not kill each other for religious reasons, whatever their divisions: ethnic or doctrinal (Sunnis-Shiites, Sunnis among themselves …).

The coalition of Kenyan opposition, the NASA,

The recent crisis in Kenya following the presidential elections of 8 August reveals the tribal aspect that undermines electoral processes in African countries. Indeed, the political currents are often secondary, the preference going to the tribal affiliation of the candidates, as we have just seen in the recent Kenyan elections. These elections pitted the outgoing president, the « liberal » Uhuru Kenyatta, against Raila Odinga, « center-left » and leader of the opposition. It was the fourth presidential campaign of the latter. Lire la suite »

Dr. Peter Hudis: « Awareness of the non-viability of capitalism grows with each passing day »

Dr. Peter Hudis. DR.

Mohsen Abdelmoumen: You wrote the relevant book « Frantz Fanon: Philosopher of the Barricades« . Why such an interest in Fanon’s work?

Dr. Peter Hudis: There is indeed a renaissance of interest in Fanon’s work in the last several years (my book is only one of many that have appeared). I think there are two reasons for this. The first is the objective changes in global capitalism, which is generating racial discrimination and racism on a huge scale. Racism, and especially anti-black racism, is not new to capitalism; as the history of the U.S. shows, class relations have been shaped by racial factors since the birth of the colonial project. This is why any “purely class” analysis always fails when applied to U.S. society. Lire la suite »

From the trade unionism of Eugene Debs and Aïssat Idir to the one of the corrupt Abdelmadjid Sidi Saïd

Debs-Aissat-Sidi-Said1

At a time when social benefits are disintegrating while the trade unionism wallows in the privileges and the complicity with the employers, it is not unnecessary to remember those who fought and died to defend the working class. All over the world, men have stood with their bare hands facing the violence of the capitalist and/or colonialist system for the just recognition of workers’ rights. The American Eugene Debs and the Algerian Aissat Idir were of these men. Lire la suite »
