PEACE JOURNALISM PERSPECTIVE EDITORIAL[image: Prof. Johan Galtung] The Year
2015: First Third Report
Johan Galtung, 11 May 2015 - TRANSCEND Media Service
A third of the year 2015 has now passed; let us take stock.
OTHER COMMENTARIES SPECIAL FEATURE U.S. Reveals It Has Known About Israel’s
Nuclear Program for Over 50 Years
The National Security Archive, George Washington University – TRANSCEND
April 15, 2015 – Despite denials for decades, the U.S. has finally
declassified information affirming its knowledge of Israel’s Dimona nuclear
program since 1960. Included in the report are a myriad of other documents
indicating dubious practices on the part of the U.S., Israel, the UK and
even international agencies.
BY TRANSCEND MEMBERS Today’s V-Day as a Lost Opportunity for Peace-Making
Jan Oberg - Transnational Foundation for Peace & Future Research
Today, May 9, Russia commemorates V-Day – 70 years ago they won over Nazi
Germany. The price they paid were 20-26 million human beings of which 9
million soldiers. But on the order of Washington, all European
leaders–recipients of the Nobel Peace Prize–with the remarkable exception
of Chancellor Merkel, today ignore the sufferings of the Soviet citizens
and stay away as a protest. Permit me to call it insensitive, shortsighted
The Semantics of Struggle
Richard Falk – TRANSCEND Media Service
What is not helpful, actually diversionary, is to respond as if the
struggle was between good and evil, and that is what happens as soon as the
insurgent challenger is labeled ‘a terrorist.’ Such language exempts the
defenders of the status quo from self-criticism and considering
accommodationist tactics, proscribing negotiation and assessment of
Hubris versus Wisdom
<https://www.transcend.org/tms/2015/05/hubris-versus-wisdom/> by David
Krieger – Nuclear Age Peace Foundation
Humankind must not be complacent in the face of the threat posed by nuclear
weapons. The future of humanity and all life depends upon the outcome of
the ongoing struggle between hubris and wisdom. Hubris is an ancient Greek
word meaning extreme arrogance. Wisdom is cautionary good sense.

Who Is Responsible for Indian Farmer Suicides?
Vithal Rajan – TRANSCEND Media Service
The present spate of farmer suicides in India unquestionably fall in the
‘anomie’ category, linked to moral confusion caused by economic ruin,
failed aspirations and crushing disappointment. Many have gambled with
their lives and fortunes, and put themselves and their families under
tremendous risk by thoughtless borrowing to get out of their families
age-old poverty trap.
A Template for Our Global Era: The Lexical Nexus of Proportion, Process,
Anthony J. Marsella, Ph.D. – TRANSCEND Media Service
Human survival and wellbeing are now embedded in a complex interdependent
global web of economic, political, social, technical, and environmental
events, forces, and changes. This article is simply an effort to call
attention — increase awareness — to the events, forces, and powers of our
time by acknowledging and presenting the lexical nexus of global era
‘proportions,’ ‘processes,’ and ‘ideologies.’
The American Psychological Association’s Disappearing History
Roy Eidelson Ph.D., Psychology Today – TRANSCEND Media Service
During a period of heightened scrutiny, APA webpages are vanishing. APA’s
leaders have some difficult questions to answer. For starters, why has so
much information been removed from the APA website at the very time Mr.
Hoffman is being promised “full and unfettered access” for his
Reflections from and about Palestine
Prof. Mazin Qumsiyeh – TRANSCEND Media Service
7 May 2015 – I and two colleagues traveled to Jenin to both do field work
and attend the conference in Conflict Transformation and Peacebuilding.
Several speakers at the conference including me highlighted the devastating
impact of the Oslo accords (our real Nakba) on almost liquidating the
Palestinian struggle and Palestinian cause.
Evil Rules – Guidelines for Engaging in Armageddon Now
Anthony Judge – TRANSCEND Media Service
There is extensive reference to evil in the media, in political
declarations, in commentary on the web, and even in academic literature:
what is evil or who is evil. It is appropriate to recognize that the
prophesied ultimate battle between good and evil, Armageddon, is not some
time in the future. It is now, a time clearly characterized by the Biblical
reference: (Matthew 10:21).
ARTS Statues of Edward Snowden, Julian Assange and Bradley Manning Unveiled
Stefan Steinberg , WSWS – TRANSCEND Media Service
7 May 2015 – Bronze statues of persecuted whistleblowers Edward Snowden,
Julian Assange and Bradley Manning were unveiled in Berlin on May Day. The
statues are an art project entitled “Anything to Say?”, of Italian artist
Davide Dormino. After a month in Berlin, we will move the sculptures to the
Ostrale art centre in Dresden. We are also working to organize exhibitions
in America, Moscow, Switzerland, Portugal and other countries.
IN FOCUS Techno-Financial Capital and Genocide of the Poorest of the Poor
Prof. James Petras – TRANSCEND Media Service
Today, the ‘poorest of the poor’ are superfluous to empire and thus the
policy of genocide. The current world war between the classes has become a
war between exterminators and those who would fight to survive!
The West and Its Self-Assumed Right to Intervene
Roberto Savio, IPS – TRANSCEND Media Service
The ‘West’ is a concept that flourished during the Cold War. Then it was
West against East in the form of the Soviet empire. The East was evil
against which all democratic countries – read West – were called on to
fight. Led by the United States, in the case of the Arab world, it has
created situations that justify subsequent military interventions which
have had a high cost in both human and financial terms.
The Five-Step Process to Privatize Everything
Paul Buchheit – Common Dreams
At the heart of privatization is a disdain for government and a distrust of
society, and a mindless individualism that leaves little room for
cooperation. Adherents of privatization demand ‘freedom’ unless they need
the government to intervene on their behalf. These privatizers have a
SURVEILLANCE / SPYING / WHISTLEBLOWING / BIG BROTHER WikiLeaks Finally
Brings Back Its Submission System for Your Secrets
Andy Greenberg, Wired – TRANSCEND Media Service
It’s taken close to half a decade. But WikiLeaks is back in the business of
accepting truly anonymous leaks.
We’re Citizens, Not Subjects. We Have the Right to Criticize Government
Chelsea E. Manning (formerly Bradley Manning) – The Guardian
The American public needs more access to what the government is doing in
its name. That requires increasing freedom of information and transparency.
CIVIL SOCIETY Countries around World Are Revoking Freedom of Assembly
Willie Osterweil – Al Jazeera America
Faced with mounting unrest and unwilling to offer reforms, democratic
governments are rolling back traditional rights.
INDIGENOUS RIGHTS Hawaii’s Mauna Kea Protectors Aim to Halt Construction of
$1.4 billion, 30-meter telescope on Sacred Mountain
Imani Altemus-Williams – Waging Nonviolence
According to 17-year-old protector Kay Ala Kahaulelio, “The sacredness of
Mauna Kea is beyond what we can comprehend in the human realm. It is so
sacred because it is the portal and the closest temple where we can connect
with our akua [god].” In Hawaiian genealogy, the mountain is revered as the
piko, or center of one’s being, for Hawaii Island.
AFRICA Burundi: Denying or Hoping Won’t Do
Jan Oberg - Transnational Foundation for Peace & Future Research
Everyone who cares will see all the red lamps and hear the alarm bells. We
have a history of genocide in this country and neighbouring Rwanda just a
few years ago. There is something to build our early warnings on. But who
is listening? Who is taking action, serious political action?
ANGLO AMERICA American Psychological Association Bolstered C.I.A. Torture
Program, Report Says
James Risen – The New York Times
30 Apr 2015 — The American Psychological Association secretly collaborated
with the administration of President George W. Bush to bolster a legal and
ethical justification for the torture of prisoners swept up in the
post-Sept. 11 war on terror, according to a new report by a group of
dissident health professionals and human rights activists.
It Is Time to Call Radio “Liberty” What It Is: Radio Gestapo Amerika
Paul Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service
6 May 2015 – Radio “Liberty” has always been a propaganda ministry.
Formerly its propaganda was directed against the Soviet Union. Today it is
directed against distinguished Americans who are known and respected for
their allegiance to the truth. It has declared America’s most distinguished
Russian scholar, Stephen Cohen, to be “a Putin apologist.” He is a
professor of Russian studies at both Princeton University and New York
University and was advisor to President George Herbert Walker Bush. Mikhail
Gorbachev also trusted Cohen, and little doubt that Cohen helped to bring
about the end of the Cold War.
The American Dream: Living to 18
Amy Goodman – Truthdig
“What do you hope to accomplish with this protest,” I asked a 13-year-old
girl marching in Staten Island, N.Y. “To live until I’m 18,” the young
teen, named Aniya, replied. “You want to get older. You want to experience
life. You don’t want to die in a matter of seconds because of cops.” It’s
that sentiment that has fueled the Black Lives Matter movement across the
New ACLU Cellphone App Automatically Preserves Video of Police Encounters
Jon Wiener – The Nation
1 May 2015 – The ACLU in California today released a free smart-phone app
that allows people to send cellphone videos of police encounters to the
ACLU, automatically—and the ACLU will preserve the video footage, even if
the cops seize the phone and delete the video or destroy the phone.
In Praise of the Four “R”s: Riot, Rebellion, Resistance and Revolution
J.A. Masko – CounterPunch
There are at least three potential audiences for this piece: those that are
saying, “What the hell is this guy saying? Violence is good? Criminal
thuggery revolutionary?” And then there are those who are wondering, what
does he mean exactly? Is he just being sensationalists or radical chic? And
then there are those who get it.
EUROPE A Blueprint for Greece’s Recovery
Yanis Varoufakis, Project Syndicate – TRANSCEND Media Service
Months of negotiations have produced little progress. One reason is that
all sides are focusing too much on the strings to be attached to the next
liquidity injection and not enough on a vision of how Greece can recover
and develop sustainably. If we are to break the current impasse, we must
envisage a healthy Greek economy.
The Choice before Europe
<https://www.transcend.org/tms/2015/05/the-choice-before-europe/> by Paul
Craig Roberts – TRANSCEND Media Service
Washington continues to drive Europe toward one or the other of the two
most likely outcomes of the orchestrated conflict with Russia. Either
Europe or some European Union member government will break from Washington
over the issue of Russian sanctions, thereby forcing the EU off of the path
of conflict with Russia, or Europe will be pushed into military conflict
LATIN AMERICA & THE CARIBBEAN Brazil Passes Femicide Law to Curb Domestic
Donna Bowater & Priscilla Moraes – Al Jazeera America
Legislation defines gender-based killings and sets out tougher punishments
PALESTINE / ISRAEL New Report Details How Israeli Soldiers Killed Civilians
in Gaza: “There Were No Rules”
William Booth – The Washington Post
On Monday [4 May 2015], an organization of Israeli soldiers known as
“Breaking the Silence” released a report containing testimonies from more
than 60 officers and soldiers from the Israel Defense Forces who served
during the 50-day war against Hamas militants last summer in the Gaza Strip.
Ex-U.N. Official John Dugard: Israel’s Crimes Are “Infinitely Worse” Than
in Apartheid South Africa
Amy Goodman – Democracy NOW!
6 May 2015 – As Palestine joins the International Criminal Court, former
U.N. Special Rapporteur John Dugard talks about how an apartheid case could
be brought against Israel in the ICC. “I’m a South African who lived
through apartheid,” Dugard said. “I have no hesitation in saying that
Israel’s crimes are infinitely worse than those committed by the apartheid
regime of South Africa.”
Protective Edge Assault: IDF Soldiers’ Testimony from Gaza
Breaking the Silence – TRANSCEND Media Service
4 May 2015 – To increase public accessibility to the information we gather,
we have developed this Internet database, which allows for keyword searches
of testimonies from our archives. The database contains all testimonies
that have been verified by our researchers to date, and it continues to be
The Day After: The Israeli Defense Forces’ New Tactics
Neve Gordon – London Review of Books
Turning Civilians into Legitimate Targets
Criminalizing Palestinian Resistance – Amnesty International: Whitewashing
Paul de Rooij - CounterPunch
Palestinians should be wary of Mother Teresas peddling human rights snake
oil. In exchange for giving up their resistance and complying with AI’s
norms, it is not likely that Palestinians will obtain a pixel of justice.
One should be wary of human rights groups that don’t push for justice, play
the role of Israel’s lawyer, and are bereft of solidarity with the victims.
We Cannot Liberate Palestine with Colonized Minds
Haidar Eid - The Electronic Intifada
The inability — or unwillingness — of both the Ramallah-based Palestinian
Authority and the Hamas-led administration in Gaza to provide a relatively
acceptable example of good governance based on giving ordinary people a say
in decisions that affect them means that serious soul-searching is required
among those holding leadership positions in Palestine.
SYRIA IN DEPTH Yarmouk and the Failures of Neutral Humanitarianism
Brent Eng & José Ciro Martínez – Al Jazeera America
Aid agencies should acknowledge their role in exacerbating the Syrian
crisis. By bringing external resources into life-or-death situations
characterized by scarcity, aid agencies have indirectly exacerbated the
very situation that they are trying to ameliorate.
MILITARISM Counting the Cost of US Drones: Local Wars Killing Local People
Jack Serle – The Bureau of Investigative Journalism
It is now 13 years since the US started its covert drone wars and it is
clear its targets have expanded beyond al Qaeda. “I am not convinced that
what we are doing in Yemen makes sense either politically or even that
we’re striking the right people… You get more of a sense that we may be
involved in a local conflict more than a global conflict.” — Former DOD
US Sends Hundreds of Troops to Quake-Stricken Nepal
W. A. Sunil, WSWS – TRANSCEND Media Service
4 May 2015 – The United States has significantly increased its military
presence in Nepal as part of the relief operations underway following the
devastating earthquake that struck the country on April 25. As it has done
in previous disasters in other countries, the Pentagon is exploiting the
tragedy to forge closer ties and collaboration with its Nepalese
WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION Worldwide Nuclear Modernization Programs
Posted by Antonio C. S. Rosa, editor – TRANSCEND Media Service
Hans Kristensen, director of the Federation of American Scientists’ Nuclear
Information Project, at the United Nations on April 28  examined in
depth the “modernization” programs of Russia and the United States, and
provided overviews of the nuclear weapon activities of the other seven
nuclear-armed nations (United Kingdom, France, China, Israel, India,
Pakistan and North Korea).
CAPITALISM The Capitalist Culture Is Contrary to Life and Happiness
Leonardo Boff – TRANSCEND Media Service
Where is the genius of capitalism found? In the exacerbation of the ego to
the maximum possible extent, of the individual and of self-affirmation,
neglecting the greater whole, integration and the “we”. In this way it has
thrown off balance all of human existence, due to the excess of one force,
ignoring the other.
ENERGY Containing Fukushima Is “Beyond Current Technology”. Worldwide
Radiation is the Unspoken Consequence
Washington's Blog – TRANSCEND Media Service
“The Chief of the Fukushima Nuclear Power Station Has Admitted That the
Technology Needed to Decommission Three Melted-Down Reactors Does Not
Exist, and He Has No Idea How It Will Be Developed”
Did Tesla Just Kill Nuclear Power?
Jeff McMahon - Forbes
Thursday [30 Apr 2015] night, the famed nuclear critic Arnie Gundersen had
the inside scoop: Tesla Motors announced an industrial-scale battery that
would cost about 2¢ per kilowatt hour, putting the final nail in the coffin
of nuclear power. Solar power costs six to seven cents, he said, and wind
costs four or five cents. Add 2¢ for the cost of a utility-scale Tesla
battery, and renewables with reliable storage are still at half the price
of new nuclear power.
Costa Rica’s Energy Nearly 100 Percent Clean
Diego Arguedas Ortiz, IPS – TRANSCEND Media Service
May 5 2015 – Costa Rica has almost reached its goal of an energy mix based
solely on renewable sources, harnessing solar, wind and geothermal power,
as well as the energy of the country’s rivers. In 2015, 97 percent of the
country’s energy supply will come from clean sources.
HEALTH Duty to Warn – Mitochondrial Collateral Damage Thanks to Big Pharma
Gary G. Kohls, MD – TRANSCEND Media Service
About the multitude of common iatrogenic (drug- or doctor-caused) diseases
that can be caused by the commonly prescribed drugs and/or commonly
injected vaccine ingredients that are making many of us highly drugged,
malnourished, environmentally-toxic and also thoroughly vaccinated.
3 Reasons Healthy Gut Flora Are Important
Dr. Edward F. Group III, Global Healing Center – TRANSCEND Media Service
Your gut should be home to over 100 billion bacteria, but antibiotics,
pesticides, stress, and genetically-modified foods are just a few of the
things that can weaken that diversity. Your gut’s bacteria needs to stay
healthy or problems like irritable bowel syndrome, gluten allergies, and
even obesity can be more likely. Let’s look at just 3 reasons that healthy
gut flora are so important.
ACADEMIA-KNOWLEDGE-SCHOLARSHIP Universities, Inc. – How Academia Became a
Ben Agger - CounterPunch
We use shorthand for evaluating faculty: “She is productive.” Factory work
may be too grubby a metaphor for genteel academics. The antonym is worse:
Loser, slacker, non-publisher. Universities are forced to become
business-like, produce human capital; we need gadflies, poets, and
activists, too. We want a university—and society– in which people question
the meaning of “productivity.”
REVIEWS Love and Resistance by Theresa Wolfwood
Sumeet Grover – TRANSCEND Media Service
The poems by Theresa Wolfwood in ‘Love and Resistance’ are an historic
contribution to our art of poetry, which is denied a place in the
mainstream discourse on human conflicts, social justice, poverty and the
bombing of civilians globally in the name of national security.
Peace Lessons: How to Reduce Violence
Robert J. Burrowes, Ph.D. – TRANSCEND Media Service
If you are interested in learning more about the meaning of, and the
relationships among, direct, structural and cultural violence–particularly
developed by Professor Johan Galtung–and how one peace studies scholar
suggests we use the integrative power of nonviolence to address violence
constructively, then I suggest you read the new book by historian,
playwright and novelist Professor Timothy Braatz called ‘Peace Lessons’.
Pro-Capitalist “Anti-Capitalism” – This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs.
Evan Winters, WSWS – TRANSCEND Media Service
When the word “capitalism” appears in her book, it is invariably preceded
by “neo-liberal,” or “deregulated” or “predatory.” Klein is calling for a
return to some sort of regulated capitalist economy.

Maria Popova, Brain Pickings – TRANSCEND Media Service
Centuries after Ada Lovelace, the world’s first computer programmer,
contemplated the relationship between science and religion, and decades
after Carl Sagan did the same in his exquisite ‘Varieties of Scientific
Experience,’ physicist-turned-science-writer Margaret Wertheim offers
perhaps the most elegant and emboldening reconciliation of these two
frequently contrasted approaches to the human longing for truth and meaning.

IN OTHER LANGUAGES (Italiano) La strana leggerezza della storia
Boaventura de Sousa Santos, ZNet – TRANSCEND Media Service
Alcune persone sono proprio troppo piccole per essere umane è forse è
accaduto sempre così. Ma da quando la modernità occidentale è cresciuta
tanto da abbracciare tutto il mondo grazie al colonialismo e al
capitalismo, la contraddizione tra l’uguale dignità per tutti gli esseri
umani e il trattamento inumano di alcuni gruppi sociali, ha assunto la
forma di una frattura abissale dove moltissimo sangue è stato versato e
molta ipocrisia è stata distillata.

cosas y por eso las personas resentidas nunca se sienten satisfechas con la
justicia. Para gestionar los resentimientos, en primer lugar hay que
reconocerlos; y, en segundo lugar, pasar necesariamente por la justicia.
Cuando no hay justicia el mal queda dentro y el resentimiento crece”.
