The British voted for Brexit ignoring threats, intimidations and monstrous tales

by Dimitris Kazakis, President of EPAM

Professionals of division, civil war and European racism are panic-stricken. Britain has voted for Brexit giving Boris Johnson an unequivocal mandate “Get the Brexit done”. That was anyway the slogan of the Tories’ electoral campaign.

The BBC predicts that the Conservatives with 43,6% of the votes obtain 364 seats, the Labour with 32,2%, get 203 seats. The Liberal Democrats with 11,5% get 12 seats, while the Scottish National Party with 3,8% 48 seats. A party needs 326 seats to secure absolute majority in the British parliament. (more…)

The state of Greece shows us why it is crucial to chuck the Chequers deal

So it is “Cabin crew, doors to manual” and, as you settle back and prepare to hand over €20 for an easyMeal, you may be reflecting on that delightful week you just had in the Med – the bustling marinas, the crowded restaurants – and you may conceivably have been persuaded by all those UK cheerleaders for the EU that the euro crisis is indeed at an end.

You may now go along with the fashionable pro-EU narrative, that the nice Mr Draghi of the European Central Bank has cracked it, that the euro is in robust health, that Club Med countries are on the way to durable recoveries. And you may even ask yourself whether they are therefore right – those same London-based cheerleaders for the EU – when…

The speech of the President of the EPAM, Dimitris Kazakis, presented at the Université d’automne conference, held in La Rochelle, France, 8/11/2019

Dear comrades,

The European Union is evolving more and more into an empire. On September 15th this year, Guy Verhofstadt, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP), the EU’s chief negotiator on Brexit and leader of the EU’s Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe faction, spoke at a Lib.-Dem party congress of the United Kingdom:

«The world order of tomorrow is not a world order based on nation states or countries. It’s a world order based on empires… The world of tomorrow is a world of empires in which we Europeans and you British can only defend your interests, your way of life, by doing it together in a European framework and a European Union.» (more…)

Un viaggio condiviso assieme ad intellettuali, politici e gente comune.

Statement-Denunciation of the US intervention in Venezuela

The recognition by the USA of the largely defeated candidate in Venezuela’s Presidential elections, as “interim President” of the country is a blatant interference of the Americans in the internal affairs of an independent, sovereign state. Venezuela is experiencing an unprecedented situation, where the defeated in the elections presidential candidate, declares himself president and the “World President” rushes to recognize him. Close behind the sidekick countries of Latin America (the so-called “Lima group” declare that they recognize the leader of the Opposition as President, and, backed up by the OAS, exert pressure for the “restoration of democratic order” (change of regime, that is) in Venezuela.
