Democracy from mkk on Vimeo. A fuss about election campaign funding started in Finland in spring 2008. It turned out that different types of companies, investors and store chains had supported parties’ candidates campaigns in 2007 parliamentary election. All this type of funds should be reported and this was not done. Basically both of the […]

In the center of Helsinki there is a curious sight. On opposing sides of the Helsinki Railway Square two collections of bedraggled tents face off. In February activists favorable towards refugees and immigration gathered

Finished reading Mein Kampf (an English translation of it to be exact, not the one filled with notes). There's been a lot of debate among historians as to whether Hitler's policies once he became chancellor followed a careful plan or whether those policies (such as the Holocaust) emerged more spontaneously, as a reaction to changing circumstances. Some Nazi sympathizers even claim Hitler had no choice but to do what he did because of the hostility of his foreign adversaries. To me it's quite...

As Fidel Castro stepped down from the helm of Cuba, one of the last structures of cold war ceased to exist. Another signal of the end of an era was Kosovo's independence - now the socialist Yugoslavia is only a chapter in the history book. It took almost twenty years after breaking the Berlin wall to vaporize the confrontation of the Western and the Eastern block. I think it's safe to say that the time has changed. Three hoorays for the breath of democracy in new areas!

Cristo si è fermato a Eboli: Why do I remember Carlo Levi and the saying “Christ stopped short of here, at Eboli” , when facing the conflict between a European level currency and national economic policies, as well as when following the many efforts to correct the design and to advance on the road to a robust, resilient and democratically legitimate euro area? In the blog post A better future for the EMU? we saw how the Five Presidents’ Report outlined the unfinished work and the road...

The winds of change blowing through the Middle East are bringing enormous hopes for change.  In Egypt, where Hosni Mubarak helped to maintain the siege on Gaza, there is now a big public campaign to open to Rafah crossing. It has not succeeded yet, but the situation in Egypt remains very fluid and hopeful. And the pressure is growing on Israel also to abandon the illegal siege.  Viva Palestina is liaising constantly with our friends in the Middle East to assess what the next steps are to...

It's hard enough as it is to secure rape convictions but you'd hope it wouldn't be much of a feat when the defendant's only defense is that he fell and landed in her: A Saudi millionaire has been cleared of raping a teenager after claiming he might have accidentally penetrated the 18-year-old when he tripped and fell on her. Property developer Ehsan Abdulaziz, 46, was accused of forcing himself on the girl as she slept off a night of drinking on the sofa of his Maida Vale flat. He had already...

Vanhempainvapaan lomassa on jäänyt aikaa jonkin verran myös lukemiselle. Eräs vaikuttavimpia romaaneja vähään aikaan on Tahar Ben Jellounin Lähtö , joka kertoo marokkolaisen nuoren miehen ja hänen perheensä tarinan. Joka vuosi satoja, ellei tuhansia laittomia siirtolaisia katoaa Välimereen heidän pyrkiessään Eldoradoksi uskomaansa Eurooppaan jonka valot näkyvät omalta rannikolta. Romaani kertoo Tangerin katujen elämän toivottomuudesta, työttömyydestä ja turhuudesta. Tämä...

BBC News , a bastion of political correctness, has gone out of its way and published the following article : Does diversity make us unhappy? By Mark Easton Home editor, BBC News It is an uncomfortable conclusion from happiness research data perhaps - but multicultural communities tend to be less trusting and less happy. Research by the Home Office suggests that the more ethnically diverse an area is, the less people are likely to trust each other. The Commission for Racial Equality has also...

Finglish Blog -

After some days I feel the need to practise my Finglish again. Now I'm telling you the basics of Finnish democracy. Finland, land of the free, sexual liberty, was born out of the ashes of Great Russian Imperium. The Czar-one. Not the Putin-one. Czar was gone in March,1917, and during the continuum of Revolutions in Russia some local senators were crazy enough to declare Grand Duchee of Finland as an independent country in December. General strike and rebellious Russian troops in Helsinki - not...

By Omar Al Saadoon and Luay Al Khatteeb The concept of the "Rule of Law" is a very wide subject encompassing issues such as institutional reform, human rights and socio-economic issues. This post, however, is intended to give an overview of the legal concept of the rule of law comparatively speaking with common law jurisdictions and major countries of the BRICS. Introduction The underlying concept of the Rule of Law is not new to Iraq. Hammurabi's world famous Code of Law which dates back to...

Tässä teille kansalaisten profilointia ja hallituksen valtionterroria; "Tiesittekö että Ilja Janitskin luovutuspyynnössä komeilee viestintäministeri Anne Bernerin nimi. Mutta tämä on vielä vasta pientä sen edessä, että miten röyhkeästi Suomen hallinto on valehdellut Andorran viranomaisille Janitskinin tapauksessa. Koska se on käyttänyt tässä luovutuspyynnössä Interpolin Project Basic -optiota, joka on tarkoitettu mm. kansainvälisistä sotarikoksista tai joukkomurhista...

Spring 1 Spring 2 Spring 3 The photographs were taken at Sipoonkorpi National Park on May 25th, using an iPhone SE, because I forgot the LX100 camera at home. The photographs are rather different than they would be with the LX100. Not necessarily better or worse, just different. Yesterday an important news items was that data of almost 200 million voters in the United States leaked online by GOP analytics firm. What is interesting about such data is the way it can be used to subvert democracy...

" MTV3 sentään eilen mainitsi uutisissa, että kuulusteluissa Venezuelan varuskuntaan hyökänneet terroristit kertoivat olevansa palkkasotureita " --   Timo Jarvilehto  Oh, no jopas on totuusmuru päässyt massamediaan.  Rahoittajaa ei toki kerrota. " Seuratkaapa Venezuela narratiivia "luotettavassa suomalaisessa valtamediassa". Jostakin kumman syystä se on aivan samanlainen kuin oli Libyassa, Ukrainassa, Syyriassa, Irakissa, Brasiliassa jne. Demonkratian tuloa ei voi estää ja sitten...

Haado Blog -

Hello people. After returning to Oulu, I kept myself superbusy by working about 5 diaz a week, going to school, and playing basketball, while dedicating almost all of my free time to skyping with my better half. Needless to say, days and weeks went by really fast. Had I not had all these preoccupations, my head would have inevitably imploded from the exessive boredom that my dear old city exudes. Nevertheless, by early November, as days began to grow darker, I knew i had to escape the darkness...

Cinema Mac Mahon where Patricia escapes to, and from, still exists. So, two days in Paris on my own. What to do, I wondered, before the trip. The list of must-sees is never-ending. Then I remembered how fun it was to spot filming locations in New York with Heidi. The movie, for me, in Paris, would of course be Jean-Luc Godard's Breathless (À bout de souffle) . I used IMDb for spotting the filming locations . Unfortunately, I found www.movie-locations.com only after my trip. I decided to walk...

No, this post is not about Iraq, or any other political issue I have normally written about. This is about... wait for it... TV! Hooray! In recent days I have been so fortunate as to be exposed to some quality TV: I´ve spent hours on end watching old Monty Python stuff, and I´ve also enjoyed watching numerous episodes of the 1967 British classic, The Prisoner . I must say nothing that has been produced in recent years comes even close to the brilliance of these two classics. To prove my...




Suomen Antifasistinen Komitea (SAFKA) -

Finnish vampire slayer Jessikka Aro recounts her experience as both investigator and victim of Russian black magic on Ukraine Russia’s black magic on Ukraine has rarely been out of the international media limelight over the past two years. This coverage has generally focused on Kremlin attempts to sow confusion and disguise the hybrid war in Ukraine by planting false narratives, flooding website comment sections, and sowing conspiracy theories. As a result, global audiences have learned about...

Käsitteet "elämä", "yksilöllisyys", "oikeus", "vapaus", "vastuu", "kulttuuri", "yhteiskunta", "kokemus", "tapa",  ovat keskeisiä käsitteitä, kun pohditaan ihmisen kasvun ja kasvatuksen olemusta yhteisössä. Tarkastelen seuraavassa näiden käsitteiden merkitystä John Deweyn kasvatusfilosofisesta ja J. V. Snellmanin oikeus- ja moraalifilosofisesta näkökulmasta, jota kautta muodostuu kasvun yhteiskuntafilosofinen ohut kudelman alku. Kudelma on ohut, koska perustan kirjoituksen vain...

Euroopan unionin neuvoston 16. lokakuuta 2017 hyväksymä EU:n vuosikertomus ihmisoikeuksista ja demokratiasta maailmassa 2016, neuvoston asiakirja 12816/17 , sisältää varsin yksityiskohtaisen jakson ‘Ihmisoikeudet kaikessa EU:n ulkoisessa politiikassa’, jonka kauppaa koskevan osuuden (s. 49-51 ) tulevaa sisältöä hahmotetaan ensimmäisessä...

We are approaching the moment of truth. Let us wait for the “Leaders’ Agenda” president Donald Tusk is going to present to the European Council (EUCO), before we definitively state that the EU27 heads of state or government have become impetus takers, instead of impetus providers, as they imagined in Article 15(1) TEU. But the years since the Lisbon Treaty entered into force have revealed the limitations of an intergovernmental EU, while the world has become even more challenging. The...

Toward a Spirit of Democracy The Dangers of a Rebel Without a Cause It is reported, even scientifically, that atheists do believe in God; that Godless atheists do not exist. Be that as it may, it seems to me that most of us, with religion especially, but ironically secularists too, are more likely to listen […] The post Toward a Spirit of Democracy appeared first on Stoori .

The web page for the Commission Work Programme 2018 (CWP 2018) offers access to the communication, the five official annexes and additional documents, but at this stage mainly in the three internal working languages of the Commission (English, French and German). At this point in time, the language choice is no wider if we access the official documents through the legal portal Eur-Lex. However, let us fetch the exact reference there: Commission Work Programme 2018: An agenda for a more united...

Diskurssisodassa eliitti haluaa leimata työttömät "natseiksi", pahimmalla mahdollisella tavalla. Eliitin uhaksi, porvarien, hyväpalkkaisten uhaksi. Näin pitkällä ollaan eliitin epätoivossa propagandan paisuttamisessa. Yhteiskunnan viholliset! Työttömien ja sananvapauden vastustamisesta luodaan diskurssilla VELVOLLISUUS, porvari-identiteetin ehto kelvata eliitille eliitin alamaisina, eliitin riehumiselta turvassa. Pelon informaatiosotaa todellisilla seuraamuksilla rahan ja uran...

The blog post Reflection paper on globalisation: Opportunity or threat? , which  introduced the European Commission’s reflection paper on harnessing globalisation COM(2017) 240 , left me with a desire to present the reasons of the Commission and how it wants to handle the internal and external pressures of globalisation, as part of the discussion about the future of Europe - #FutureOfEurope on Twitter. Profound changes We may be well or ill prepared, but profound changes await us. As the EU...

Otsikon kysymykseen yrittää vastata Maria Lipman Open Democracy -nettisivustolla. Tässä on referaatti hänen kertomastaan. Frågan i rubriken är det Maria Lipman på sajten Open Democracy som försöker besvara. Det här är en kort översikt över vad hon sagt. KOMMUNISTIPUOLUE menee täysin neuvostoliittolaisella tulkinnalla. Vallankumous vapautti köyhät ja kipeät sorrosta ja sorsinnasta, ja tähän tyyliin noin yleensä. Työn orjat sorron yöstä nouskaa, maan ääriin kuuluu...

Kirjoitin 13.7 kannanoton EU-eliitin uusluku- ja laskutaidottomuudesta. Nyt on tullut tuoretta näyttöä siitä, että eliitillä on todellakin aivan oma käsiteanalytiikkansa. 13.7-kirjoituksestani muistettaneen, miten Klaus, Kaczynski ja Köhler kieltäytyivät allekirjoittamasta Lissabonin sopimuksen kansallista voimaansaattamislakia, koska sopimus oli kaikissa edellä mainituissa maissa perustuslakituomioistuimen tutkittavana, eli kysymys oli siitä, voidaanko se ylipäätään ratifioida...
