Are We "Proud Enough" Of Kshama Sawant?
By Romi Mahajan

http://www.countercurrents.org/mahajan041015.htm

The people of Indian origin (PIO) who most other PIOs cite as sources of pride are either business people, mainstream political actors, or sports stars. A few authors and engineers can be thrown in but in small doses only. Are we "proud enough" of Kshama Sawant? She is an avowed Socialist and is a vocal and intelligent member of the Seattle City Council. She is an articulate advocate for the people who Capitalism has left behind


Ruminations Of An Afghan Girl Burning To Death In A Hospital Bed
By David Swanson

http://www.countercurrents.org/swanson041015.htm

I know that I'm not supposed to be bitter, and yet that somehow makes it harder not to be. When my father and sister and two cousins were blown into little pieces last year, it was the action of some distant office worker pushing a switch on a remote-controlled airplane. And I'm supposed to believe that they meant well. And this is supposed to make it better. But somehow it makes it worse


At UN Syria Fails To Call For Nuremberg Prosecution Of
US And Allies Funding/Organizing Terrorist Invasion
By Jay Janson

http://www.countercurrents.org/janson041015.htm

Years from now when the East resumes world leadership after five centuries of savage European racist domination and the UN is free of colonial powers control, people will look back in astonishment to UN debates in which nations bombed and invaded by the US and NATO were unable call for justice under the Nuremberg Principles of international law. Syria allowing the US to get away genocide in 2015 one example


Russian Moves In Syria Highlight General US Hypocrisy
By Robert Barsocchini

http://www.countercurrents.org/barsocchini041015.htm

One has to wonder whether Moscow planners intend, as one of the effects of their current anti-terrorist (using US parlance) operations in Syria, to highlight US hypocrisy. Intentional or not, this aspect of the Russian campaign has been stunning


Southeast Asia "Forgets" About Western Terror
By Andre Vltchek

http://www.countercurrents.org/vltchek041015.htm

The Vietnamese people, especially the young ones, know very little about the horrific acts committed by the West in their neighboring countries. At most they know about the crimes committed by France and the US in their own country – in Vietnam, nothing or almost nothing about the victims of the West-sponsored monsters like Marcos and Suharto. Nothing about Cambodia – nothing about who was really responsible for those 2 millions of lost lives. The "Secret Wars" remain secret


Freedom For Omid Kokabee
By Dr. Ludwig Watzal

http://www.countercurrents.org/watzal041015.htm

The Islamic Republic of Iran pretends that it's adheres to superior moral values than, for example, the United States of America, especially what the incarceration of alleged Islamic terrorist at Guantanamo Bay prison is concerned, who have been incarcerated since 2001 without trail. To live up to the Islamic value system, the government of Iran should release Omid Kokabee immediately


BJP's Latest Antibiotic Tablet For Kerala
By B.F. Firos

http://www.countercurrents.org/firos041015.htm

If there is one place which has kept the Hindu right at a safe distance for such an annoyingly long time period, it is Kerala. The RSS and its political face BJP has not yet been able to make any ripples in the placid social waters of the state, though its power-hungry leaders have been salivating at the prospect of penetrating into this constituency for the past so many years. Attempts are being done to turn the tides of this renaissance. Standing at the vanguard of this regressive bid is Vellappally Nateshan, the general secretary of SNDP Yogam – a socio-cultural movement founded by the 20th century social reformer Sree Narayana Guru – which endeavored to emancipate the Ezhava community from the abyss of the oppressive Hindu caste hierarchy


Some Suggestions For The Revival Of The Indian Left
By Abdul Muheet Chowdhary

http://www.countercurrents.org/chowdhury041015.htm

The Left still has a very strong place in the hearts of the Indian people, who long for government which is truly secular, pro-poor and most importantly wants to work hard for the development of the country. The victory of the AAP should serve as an inspiration to the Left in this regard and with the right steps hopefully they will once again retain their rightful place as an influential and major political force in India
