Thousands of people gathered at La Mutualité in Paris on Sunday, January 24, 2010 to render homage to deceased IIRE fellow Daniel Bensaïd.

Falleció Daniel Bensaïd (1946 – 2010)

Recibimos con profunda tristeza la noticia del fallecimiento de nuestro camarada Daniel Bensaïd. Deseamos expresar nuestro sentimiento a sus familiares y a sus camaradas del mundo entero.

Desde su adolescencia fue militante revolucionario. Daniel Bensaïd fue uno de los fundadores de la JCR (Juventud comunista revolucionaria) en 1966, uno de los animadores del Movimiento del 22 de marzo y uno de los actores del movimiento de Mayo del 68 antes de participar en la creación de la Liga Comunista Revolucionaria en abril de 1969.

IIRE fellow Claudio Katz interviewed by Fernando Arellano Ortiz

The exit from the systemic crisis of capitalism needs to be political, and "a socialist project can mature in this turbulence."  So says the Argentine economist, philosopher, and sociologist Claudio Katz, who also warns that the "global economic situation is very serious and is going to have to hit bottom, and now we are but in the first moment of crisis."

par Damien Millet, Éric Toussaint

 

 

Les effets d’annonce ne manquent pas autour du sommet des 20 pays industrialisés et émergents (G20) réuni à Londres les 1er et 2 avril pour apporter des solutions à la crise. Mais bien avant la clôture du sommet, les conclusions sont connues : le G20 ne sera pas à la hauteur de l’enjeu.

An interview with IIRE Fellow Eric Toussaint , by Pauline Imbach 

Some talked about a new start for the movement for another globalization with the World Social Forum in Belém. Do you think this is the case? Since the World Social Forum (WSF) went through difficult moments in 2006, 2007, and 2008, we can really call this 9th edition a new start. It was a huge success in various respects.

A Crash Course in Capitalism

By IIRE Fellow Claudio Katz

The seism on Wall Street has surprised the world Establishment. At the summits of power, panic and alarmist declarations dominate. Everyone is absorbing an event which could be the beginning of a change of epoch. The comparison with the fall of the Berlin Wall gives some indication of this historical dimension.
