CADTM condemns Israel’s actions in Gaza and unequivocally expresses its support for the Palestinian people. We hold Israel guilty of consistently violating UN resolutions and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. It also has a terrible record of backtracking on its commitments, even in case of bilateral agreements.

Today marks the 6th month of the glorious struggle of Indian farmers which is full of sacrifices. Around 400 farmers have laid their lives till date, to make their voices heard. Sushovan Dhar explores the root causes behind farmer’s protest in India.

One of the most discussed books in recent times, Thomas Picketty’s Capital in the 21st Century, has great strengths as well as great weaknesses. The deft use of statistical data on income and wealth is admirable. However, the firm belief about a redistribution of resources through a progressive global tax on wealth under capitalism undermines the analytical framework of the book. Indeed, a careful study of the history of capitalism show his ideas to be unfounded. In the 6th part of the series about the author and his book, we explain why he is impeccably accurate in his research but theoretically thoroughly confused.

In this part of the discussion about the new debt trap for the South, we discuss how Sub-Saharan Africa continues to suffer under the unsustainable burden of debt. The unilateral suspension of debt is an imperative if people of this region are to enjoy a dignified existence.

The articles on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC), Puerto Rico’s multi-layered crisis, the vaccine politics in the Philippines, microfinance debt trap in Sri Lanka, Ecosocialist Feminism, global austerity, etc. completes another interesting read.
