Ukraine | Secret Meeting in Warsaw between Yulia Timoshenko and Igor Kolomoisky – New Plan for Ukraine, More War with Russia

by John Helmer

In the Polish capital of Warsaw a fortnight ago, Igor Kolomoisky met secretly with Yulia Tymoshenko. The reason for the secrecy is the terms of exchange which they discussed. These include Tymoshenko’s agreement that if she is elected president in Kiev in eight months’ time with Kolomoisky’s support, he will get relief from Ukrainian state pursuit of billions of his dollars currently frozen on British court orders.

Ukraine | Fascists threaten the independence of the court in the capital of Ukraine

On the last day of July, representatives of the ultra-right organization C14 broke into the premises of the National Academy of Advocates of Ukraine (NAAU) in Kiev. Three dozen young people tried to disrupt the meeting of the defense lawyers’ committee. The lawyers called in the Podolsky district police department and replaced them with a request to send uninvited guests. The police said they did not see any violations and simply contemplated the continuation of the conflict between lawyers and fascists.
The reason was the conflict between fascists and lawyer Valentin Rybin in the building of the Court of Appeal of Kiev. On July 18, the court seized Sergei Mazur, one of the leaders of the fascist gang C14, accused of gypsy pogrom. On July 27, the court considered an appeal for his arrest. Several dozen fascists came to support their leader and met in court lawyer Rybin. They insulted the lawyer and tried to beat him. In response, the lawyer applied to the National Advocates Association of Ukraine, asking for an assessment of the situation. An emergency meeting of the relevant committee was scheduled for July 31. Then the fascists seized the meeting hall, and the police were inactive.

Italy | African harvest workers strike in southern Italy

by Gerhard Feldbauer, August 14

After the death of 12 farmworkers in a traffic accident in southern Italy on Aug. 6, hundreds of migrant farmworkers walked off the job there. The USB trade union federation called for the strike.

In a “march of red caps” — a reference to the covering which the workers usually use to protect themselves from the blazing sun — the protesters went to the prefecture [representing the national government] in the city of Foggia and demanded decent working conditions. At a demonstration by the CGIL, CISL and UIL trade unions in Foggia, member of parliament Roberto Speranza, who is also chairperson of the left-wing movement “Free and Equals” (LeU), expressed his solidarity with the migrants.

Japan | 70,000 protest U.S. base plan in honor of late Okinawa governor

On August 11 a massive crowd gathered in Okinawa to protest the government’s controversial plan to relocate a contentious U.S. air base to another part of the prefecture.

Some 70,000 people took part in the rally at a park in Okinawa’s capital Naha, where they adopted a resolution urging the central government to abandon the plan to transfer U.S. Marine Corps Air Station Futenma from densely populated Ginowan to the coastal area of Henoko in Nago, according to an organizer.

At the start of the gathering, the participants offered a silent prayer to late Gov. Takeshi Onaga, who died of cancer Wednesday in the midst of his anti-base campaign.

Ukraine | Persecution of journalists in Ukraine

The suppression of opposition journalists has long been the hallmark of the Kiev regime. So that no one has any doubts about which policy is being pursued, several high-profile actions took place in Ukraine on the same day. Three attacks on journalists were held, and the Kiev regime publicly exposed the Council of Europe as a fool.
In Zhitomir on August 6, the fascists attacked journalist Vasily Muravitsky, whom the special services accused of undermining the information security of Ukraine, and the court released him later under house arrest. Activists from the Nazi group C14, Avtomaidan, as well as a deputy from the ruling Petro Poroshenko Bloc were seen among the attackers. Vasily Muravitsky was struck in the back and splashed with green medical blend to eyes when he went out after the court session. The journalist was poured by those fascists who were present in the court during the trial of the case.
