25/11: Stop the pandemic of violence! Fight against patriarchy and capitalism!

“Violence against women remains devastatingly pervasive and starts alarmingly young. Across their lifetime, 1 in 3 women, around 736 million, are subjected to physical or sexual violence by an intimate partner or sexual violence from a non-partner – a number that has remained largely unchanged over the past decade. This violence starts early: 1 in 4 young women (aged 15-24 years) who have been in a relationship will have already experienced violence by an intimate partner by the time they reach their mid-twenties.”

by Athina Kariati and Ruyam Oztuna

While this article was being written, 10.000 turkishcypriots went on the streets against turkish intervention. A report will follow soon. 

Ersin Tatar, the candidate of the traditional right wing nationalist party UBP won the elections of the 18th of October in northern Cyprus.

Environment inaction threatens the Eastern Mediterranean

Gold mining in Kaz – Turkey

By Athina Kariati – New Internationalist Left – the CWI in Cyprus – published in, the website of CWI.

Climate change is having severe implications for the countries of the Eastern Mediterranean. According to scientists, the temperature of the area is increasing at a much faster rate than the global average and precipitation throughout the region is expected to decline. These factors, combined with the greed for more profit by the ruling elites will have disproportional effects for the destruction of the environment here compared to other areas. [1]

Will the EU elections shake the “European project”?

an article from Sonja Grusch, from SLP the sister organisation of NEDA in Austria and the section of CWI in Austria

  • Is it a choice between nationalism and Europe? Between the far-right and democratic rights? Or is there more?

All over Europe, politicians and parties have started their campaigns for the European Parliament elections in May. Opinion polls point to an end of the “grand coalition” between the EPP (European People’s Party) and the S&D parliamentary fractions. Especially the latter are worried about the elections, which could see them lose further support and drop to historically low levels in the polls. This could lead to crises in ruling parties and/or governments in various European countries.
