The fate of the Greeks as Athens burns

01 Sep 2021  |  Frontiere News
The summer of 2021 in Greece is marked by devastating wildfires from Athens to Evia and the Peloponnese, destroying hundreds of thousands of acres. The government under Kyriakos Mitsotakis faces criticism for its authoritarian tendencies and for contributing to the country's privatization. Despite the extreme vulnerability, local initiatives are emerging to rewrite the present. The olive industry, a vital economic sector, is in structural crisis, with the majority of Greek oil sold in bulk to Italy at low prices. The reconstruction from the fires is being outsourced to private multinationals, raising concerns about the impact on native flora and fauna. The privatization trend extends to real estate, with foreign investment continuing despite the pandemic. The Port of Piraeus, now controlled by China COSCO Shipping Corporation Limited, has seen improvements, but concerns remain about the balance of benefits. Poverty in Greece has become rampant, with incomes plummeting and a significant portion of the population unable to afford basic expenses. Stories of hope and opportunity arise from the crisis, such as Joanne Dimis-Dimitrakakis, who turned a family home into a guest house and is working to revitalize abandoned villages with responsible tourism.

Kidnappings, Abuse, Corruption: Counterterrorism at Europe's Borders

01 Jun 2021  |  Frontiere News
Between 2017 and 2020, Bulgaria conducted numerous counterterrorism operations resulting in the arrest of dozens of individuals, none of whom were proven to be linked to Islamic extremism. These operations, often funded by the EU, are criticized for being more about political and financial gain than genuine security concerns. The article highlights the corruption within Bulgarian institutions, particularly the State Agency for National Security, and the misuse of anti-terrorism laws to target minorities and political dissidents. The case of Mohammed Abdulqader, arrested on dubious terrorism charges, exemplifies the broader issues of abuse and lack of transparency in Bulgaria's counterterrorism efforts.

Afghans in Iran: No SIM card, no house, no rights

12 Sep 2017  |  middleeasteye.net
Afghan refugees in Iran face severe discrimination and lack basic rights such as owning property, bank accounts, or SIM cards. Despite Ayatollah Khamenei's claims of treating Afghans with respect, they are often subjected to violence, segregation, and the threat of deportation. Refugees are employed in low-status jobs and live in fear of police and extremist violence. Many are coerced into fighting for Iran in Syria, with promises of residency and financial benefits that are rarely fulfilled. The younger generation dreams of escaping to Europe, but even this journey is fraught with danger, including exploitation by smugglers.

Who is Ariel Sharon, butcher of Qibya

11 Jan 2014  |  frontierenews.it
Ariel Sharon, born in Kfar Malal to a Lithuanian Jewish family, had a long and controversial career in both military and politics. He began his Zionist activism at a young age and quickly rose through military ranks. Sharon commanded Unit 101, known for its brutal operations, including the Qibya massacre in 1953, where 69 Palestinians were killed. His political career included roles as Minister of Agriculture, Defense, and Foreign Affairs, and he was a key figure in the establishment of Israeli settlements. Sharon was indirectly involved in the Sabra and Shatila massacre and was removed from his Defense Minister position by an Israeli inquiry commission. He later became the leader of the Likud Party and Prime Minister, initiating the construction of the West Bank barrier. Sharon's visit to the Temple Mount in 2000 was seen as a provocative act that contributed to the start of the Second Intifada. He fell into a coma in 2006 and passed away on January 11, 2014.

Appeal to the Italian media: enough nonsense about the Gezi Park protests

01 Jun 2013  |  Frontiere News
Joshua Evangelista challenges the Italian media's simplistic and arrogant coverage of the Gezi Park protests in Turkey. He clarifies that not all Turkish people oppose Erdogan, who is seen by many as a reformer. The Gezi Park protesters are not a homogenous group and their actions should not be romanticized or demonized. The protests have evolved, with political parties and movements co-opting the genuine protests. Evangelista also criticizes the idolization of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk by the media, despite his oppressive cultural policies. He concludes by supporting the genuine protesters who dream of a truly democratic and uncensored Turkey.
