Day's Message to Syrian's heroes : These are the struggles of our lives that I'm singing!

Hi everyone, I know that there are news everyday, therefore, I hope we do not forget that Syria's struggle for democracy is happening everyday. This is a very short message, just to remind our Syrian people that we will not forget them. If we can't be there to join the uprising we can be there with our hearts and minds. Music is a powerful way to express our feelings and I really hope, this song of Gonzaguinha, will show our Syrian brothers and sisters that we care, and we are bleeding,…

A Brazilian in Berlin and Nuclear Powerplants.

My first day in Berlin was peaceful. I visited the Postdamer Platz, the place where humans were separated by a wall of intolerance phisical and psychological, that limited freedom of movement, thought, freedom of speech, and only God knows which other limitations the war might have caused to the people of Berlin only, as the impact it had on mankind is yet, immesurable. Fortunately, instead of depression or devastation, a Japanese company gave Berlin, a wonderful place, where peace is…

Kader Arif: "We need to create a public debate".

The resignation of Kader Arif, of his position as rapporteur for ACTA, last January, rings the bell of "how far" the EU Commission has betrayed our trust in the EU. It is an evidence that the treaty is harmful and misleading.

Criminalization of defamation: 'press freedom' or judicial integrity?

In a web search for defamation, one sees various articles mentioning the criminalization of defamation: in a variety of countries, such as eastern European or Russian countries, or Zimbabwe. Various human rights organizations or NGOs are reported to have signed protests against recent attempts to re-introduce criminal defamation into law in some of them. It is often argued as an attack on press freedom.The European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) does not apparently support criminalization of…See More
