The South: What are the alternatives?

Monday 25 November 2013

The project to which we wish to contribute is that of a creative utopia. If one were to give that future, that vision, a name, one could call it ‘value-based development,’ in other words development based on a body of moral, ethical and social values that integrate democracy, liberty and equality, solidarity, etc. To my mind, this is called ‘communism,’ as envisaged by Marx.

COMMENT :"EPA 2014 Deadline-A Dangerous Corporate Strategy of the EU"

vendredi 19 juillet 2013

The 25th Session of the Joint Parliamentary Assembly (JPA) of Africa, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP), and the European Union (EU) took place in Brussels from the 15th to the 19th of June 2013. Among the issues on the agenda was the unilateral deadline issued by the European Commission (EC) for ACP states that have initialed/signed interim Economic Partnerships Agreements (EPAs) to sign/ratify them by October 2014. ACP countries that fail to do so will lose their preferential market access offered by the EU. By that decision the EC assumed the high moral ground and attempted to paint a picture in which it was faultless in the EPA deadlock and rather that ACP states were to blame for the impasse, when in fact the EC is the chief culprit. This stance did not go down well with most ACP parliamentarians
