Africa: Democratic Revolutions in North Africa – An Analysis

Comments Off

Published on allAfrica, by Dimitris Papanikolopoulos, December 15, 2011.

… DEMOCRATIC STRUGGLE IN INTERNATIONAL PERSPECTIVE:

After the collapse of the Communist Bloc and the subsequent lack of an economic and political antagonistic model, the western peoples’capacity to effectively challenge their native ruling elites deteriorated to a substantial degree. So did the capacity of the ruling elites in the Arab countries to exploit the competition between two Great Powers in the name of an independent policy. Since the communist threat disappeared, the ruling elites in both the Arab and the Western World searched for its new equivalent and they found it in the Islamic fundamentalist movement.  Continue Reading…

pushing for the creation of smart, strong, and enforceable laws – Received by e-mail, From: AccessNow’s Newsletter, via bounce.bluestatedigital.com, Date: décembre 5, 2011.

… Companies in this multi-billion dollar industry clearly won’t police themselves and civil society can’t campaign every time this technology is used for human rights abuse. That’s why we need governments to pass robust and enforceable laws to ensure technology is not used to track down activists and suppress freedom of expression online. Since an estimated 80-90% of these technologies are produced by European and U.S. companies, it’s time that Western governments prevent them from exporting equipment used for censoring and spying on innocent citizens. Both the European Union and U.S. Congress must take a stand — but we also need to ensure that any new legislation or regulation gets it right. Add your name to STOP the SALE petition here: access – Stop the sale … Sign the petition.
