    Eman Lacaba and Krip Yuson usually drank together at their favorite bar, or when they felt like staying close to campus, at the pool in Cervini Hall—the broken bottles left in the water irked the Jesuits every time. Being the good friends that they were, the two would also occasionally smoke pot together. Read more

    After the terror attacks in 9/11, now ten years hence, the US and their allies quickly came up with all kinds of laws facilitating the tracking and prosecution of terrorists. Among these is a law aimed at cutting terrorists from accessing their bank accounts. Both in the US and later in the Europe, a list of persons and organizations whose bank accounts were frozen were released. Likewise, financial aid to those in the list had been prohibited. Because of the profound secrecy behind this war against terrorism, it has never been clear how these lists had been composed. For a long time, too, it was practically impossible to lodge an appeal against any of these measures. Read more

    The top officials of the IMF and World Bank, corporate moguls, the bourgeois politicians, the experts and media pundits admit the gravity of the ongoing public debt crisis in the US and in the Euro zone and warn of a new recession on the false assumption that there was an economic recovery in 2010 from the financial meltdown in 2008. The current tumbling of the stock markets on a global scale one week after another calls attention to the much-worsened crisis. Read more

    Long pent-up social tensions exploded into four days of pitched and running battles between mainly young protesters and the police in London and other major English cities last week. The trigger was the racist killing of Mark Duggan, a black man and father of three, at the hands of the police in a “stop and search operation” in Tottenham in London on August 4.
