Würzburg, München, Ansbach: Gemeinsamkeiten und die einzig mögliche Antwort

Evelyn Rottengatter, Pressenza, 30. Juli 2016 - In nur wenigen Tagen drei Anschläge auf bayerischem Boden, alle von jungen Männern mit islamischem Hintergrund. Kein Wunder also, dass rechtskonservativ bis rechtsextreme Stimmen immer mehr Gehör finden, wenn sie sagen, der IS schleuse seine Terroristen als Flüchtlinge getarnt nach Europa ein und deshalb dürfe keiner mehr reingelassen werden und alle müssen bis ins kleinste Detail überwacht werden.

Våpenprodusenter profitterer på krig og flyktningene som rømmer fra krigen

Norges Fredslag, Folk Lager Fred, 26/07/2016 - En ny rapport fra organisasjonene Stop Wapenhandel og Transnational Institute, Border Wars, tar for seg forbindelsen mellom noen av verdens største våpenprodusenter, krigene i Midtøsten og militariseringen av Europas grensekontroll. Tematikken er viktig, og det er behov for sterkere fokus på hvordan vi håndterer den såkalte flyktningkrisen og hva som bør gjøres for å behandle årsakene til flyktningestrømmene vi ser i deler av verden i dag.

Wapenindustrie verdient grof geld over de rug van vluchtelingen

Doorbraak.EU  13 juli 2016 De een z’n dood is de ander z’n brood, en ook nog eens in dubbel opzicht. Want dezelfde Europese militaire industrie die wapens verkoopt aan het Midden-Oosten, maakt ook flinke winst met de militarisering van de EU-buitengrenzen. Dat blijkt uit het onlangs verschenen onderzoeksrapport “Border wars” van Stop Wapenhandel en Transnational Institute. Lees meer »

Comment les vendeurs d’armes européens profitent à la fois des guerres au Moyen Orient et de la militarisation des frontières

Rachel Knaebel, Observatoire des Multinationales, 11 juillet 2016 - Les exportations d’armes des entreprises européennes à destination du Moyen Orient ont explosé ces dernières années, alimentant les conflits et la répression qui ravagent cette région du monde. Mais les mêmes industriels bénéficient également de la militarisation croissante des frontières du vieux continent face à l’afflux des réfugiés. « En d’autres termes, les entreprises qui créent la crise sont celles qui en profitent », souligne un nouveau rapport du Transnational Institute.

Pavel Turek, Seda Dzholdosheva, Respekt (Czech Republic), 9.7.2016 - Na Východě existuje intimita bez přátelství, na Západě máme přátelství bez intimity. Zhruba tak se dá shrnout obsah glosy My Struggle with American Small Talk od původem indického spisovatele Karana Mahajana. Do Spojených států se přistěhoval v roce 2001, bylo mu sedmnáct a nastupoval na vysokou. [...] Lees meer »
