This Week In Palestine: Mazin Qumsiyeh, MD, reports the diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and formula for successful recovery of our patient, Palestine/"Israel", Segment 2

3 months 2 weeks ago
The diagnosis: colonialism. The prognosis: full recovery. The treatment: resistance. And the formula for successful recovery: diversity. Among Mazin Qumsiyeh's impressive qualifications are his MD degree and genetics professorship at Yale School of Medicine. Thus the basic outline summarized above. In this riveting presentation recently at the Community Church of Boston, he explains why we must recognize, celebrate, and cultivate diversity in all matters. This applies to the environment and to human community building. It also means one democratic state for Palestine/"Israel", ending apartheid forever. For some background on Qumsiyeh and his primary love, we quote from thisweekinpalestine.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/The-Palestine-Museum-of-Natural-History.pdf: "As a child, Dr. Mazin Qumsiyeh, the founder of the Palestine Museum of Natural History (PMNH) at Bethlehem University, used to accompany his uncle Sana to the field and thus fell in love with nature. Qumsiyeh was 13 years old when his uncle died, and that is when he resolved to fulfill not only his uncle’s mission of doing research on mammals but also his dream of building a museum. Qumsiyeh, who has taught at Duke and Yale universities, now teaches at Bethlehem and Birzeit universities. He has published more than 140 scientific papers on topics ranging from systematics to biodiversity to cancer. He has also published several books, including Bats of Egypt, Mammals of the Holy Land, Sharing the Land of Canaan, and Popular Resistance in Palestine.” For those interested, we have included separately a raw unedited recording of the 35-minute Q&A session. Finally, go to youtube.com/watch?v=4xTTHYOvwgU to see an informal video of this event, including some of his slides. Qumsiyeh is a passionate, tireless, and also fun presenter!

TUC Radio: Yanis Varoufakis: Is Capitalism Devouring Democracy?, Segment 2

3 months 2 weeks ago
The two June 2018 programs by TUC radio with the economist and former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis drew such a huge response that we are following up with an extraordinary excerpt from a May 9, 2018, talk at the Cambridge Forum. In that talk Yanis Varoufakis makes the point that democracy and capitalism are incompatible. However capitalism also can't maintain itself - he says - it is a self devouring system. And he invites us today to resolve the question of who is going to survive, democracy or the global financial system. In this excerpt of his near two hour talk Varoufakis traces the origins of the current economic crisis from 1929 through the New Deal through WWII through Bretton Woods to 2008 and beyond. Varoufakis is weaving in illuminating historic facts such as why bankers were not allowed to participate in the drafting of Bretton Woods, how the Marshall Plan saved the US economy, how Bretton Woods collapsed in the 1970s, and why and how bankers became instrumental in rescuing the US from collapse after the US bankrupted itself by going on a global shopping spree - and why we need a new New Deal. Yanis Varoufakis was already an internationally known economist and academic when he was elected to the Greek parliament as a member of the Syriza party. At the height of the Greek debt crisis he served as Minister of Finance in 2015. He resigned in protest over the imposition of structural adjustment and bailout loans on the Greek people. Varoufakis had been invited to the US to talk about his most recent book: Talking to My Daughter About the Economy. Among his other books are: Adults in the Room, And the Weak Suffer What They Must?, and The Global Minotaur, America, the True Causes of the Financial Crisis and the Future of the World Economy. Yanis Varoufakis is a cofounder of an international grassroots movement, DiEM25 (Democracy in Europe Movement 2025). After teaching for many years in the United States, Great Britain, and Australia, he is currently a professor of economics at the University of Athens.
