The Greek Revolution of 1821: heroism, betrayal and the birth of modern Greece

The French Revolution initiated a decades-long phase of bourgeois revolutions across Europe and beyond that raised the flags of democracy, national liberation, and civil rights against the injustices of the feudal system.

Funeral de Shireen Abu Akleh atacado pela polícia: o sadismo de Israel e a hipocrisia imperialista

Depois de assassinar a popular jornalista palestina-americana da Al Jazeera, Shireen Abu Akleh, na semana passada, o Estado israelense não permitiu que seu corpo chegasse em paz ao seu local de descanso final. Em um ato chocante de sadismo, a polícia israelense atacou o cortejo fúnebre de Abu Akleh na sexta-feira, usando bastões e granadas de efeito moral contra os enlutados que escoltavam seu ataúde de um hospital em Jerusalém Oriental para um cemitério na cidade velha próxima.


En defensa del materialismo

¿Cómo adquirimos el conocimiento? ¿Existe un mundo real más allá de nuestros sentidos? Y si es así, ¿cuál es nuestra relación con él?
