Everyone Has a Door and This Door Will Be Knocked One Day


While going past the mosques which are in city centres, there is an expression on some of the garden gates of the mosques: No parking.It is funeral gate.There is a strange feeling inside me when I see it.Suddenly, I feel as if lonely.This is to realise for a moment that the adventure of life which starts in a delivery room ends at a funeral.That is why I feel so then. It is interesting that we waited between these two gates and many other sills.We forgot that the real thing lies in these gates which are the beginning and end of life, and the others are of no importance. We made the life ordinary at the gates of owners of power who are expected with hope, at the gates of government and darling.

The world should followSomalia is suffering from the most severe drought and famine in the last 60 years, which has already resulted in the deaths of tens of thousands of people and endangers the lives of 750, 000 more Somalis.

The Futility of Green Capitalism


Daniel Tanuro's new book, L'impossible capitalisme vert, or "The Futility of Green Capitalism", is a major contribution to our analytical understanding o f ecosocialism.

Tanuro, a Belgian Marxist and certified agriculturist, is a prolific author on environmental history and policies.

Addressed primarily to the Green milieu, as the title indicates, this book is a powerful refutation of the major proposals advanced to resolve the climate crisis that fail to challenge the profit drive and accumulation dynamic of capital. Much of the book appears to be a substantially expanded update of a report by Tanuro adopted in 2009 by the leadership of the Fourth International as a basis for international discussion. That report was translated by Ian Angus and included in his anthology The Global Fight fo r Climate Justice.
