Den engelske rockmusiker og skuespiller David Bowie dør på Manhattan, New York City, New York. (Født 8. januar 1947 i Brixton, Syd-London, England).
Bl.a. Bowies bemærkninger om Hitler som rock-stjerne (se The Quotable David Bowie), og den samtidige vækst i britiske fascistiske og racistiske partier, førte til dannelsen af bevægelsen Rock Against Racism (se Tidslinjen september 1976).

Prince (Wikipedia.dk) + længere engelske: Prince (musician) (Wikipedia.org)

Prince, 1958-2016. By Hiram Lee (World Socialist Web Site, 27 April 2016). “With his sexually charged lyrics and on-stage theatrics, Prince often courted controversy and both politicians and the media were more than happy to oblige him.”

Farewell to a true funk soldier. By Danny Katch (SocialistWorker.org, April 25, 2016). “We lost Prince just as the world seemed to be catching up to him.”

The lasting legacy and genius of Prince. By Darletta Scruggs and Eljeer Hawkins (Socialist Alternative, April 25, 2016). “The politics of Prince were a contradictory paradigm that were exhibited throughout his music – from an unapologetic sexual freedom … to a religiosity or spirituality that led him after the passing of his parents to become a Jehovah Witness in 2001.”

The Prince position. By Alexander Billet (Jacobin: Reason in Revolt, 24 April 2016). “It may be trite to say that Prince broke down boundaries, but that’s what made his music such a revelation.”

Prince and politics in Reagan’s America. By Jordy Cummings (Red Wedge, April 22, 2016). “Looking back at nearly four decades of hybridizing rock, funk and dance music, there can be no doubt that the man was a pioneer, sonically, aesthetically and as an artist who stood up and fought back against a music industry …”

Prince obituary. By Adam Sweeting (The Guardian, 22 April 2016). “Prodigious hit-maker who synthesised an intoxicating mix of musical styles.”

The Prince of sex. By Richard Kim (The Nation, April 21, 2016). “When Reagan was president, and sex was death, it was a Prince song that turned me inside out.”

En britisk kommission om Irak-krigen – nedsat i juni 2009 – med embedsmanden John Chilcot som formand (derfor ofte kaldet Chilcot-kommissionen), offentliggør rapport (“Chilcot Report”/Iraq Inquiry Report),der bl.a. konkluderer: at Saddam Hussein ikke udgjorde en umiddelbar trussel mod Storbrittanien – efterretningerne om irakiske masseødelæggelsesvåben var forkerte – at fredelige løsninger ikke var udtømte – at USA & UK havde undermineret FN’s sikkerhedsråds autoritet – at det lovlige grundlag for krigen ikke var tilfredsstillende fremlagt – at krigen mod Irak i marts 2003 var unødvendig.

The Iraq Inquiry (site). “From the links on this page you can access the Executive Summary and the Report, search the supporting documents and review transcripts and recordings of the original hearings.”

Theme: Iraq war inquiry (The Guardian)

Chilcot, parliament and Tony Blair’s lies. By Lindsey German (Counterfire, July 15, 2016). “The state is still using pro-war rhetoric to cloud the truth behind the War on Terror.”

Not a whitewash (Weekly Worker, Issue 1115, 14 July 2016). “Yassamine Mather examines the Chilcot report and looks at a possible response.” 2016chil4.jpg

Chilcot Iraq war report: More piles of evidence against the blood-soaked war for oil. By Judy Beishon (The Socialist Party, 13 July 2016). “While there is nothing fundamentally new in the report, the conclusions are more candid than is usual from establishment circles …”

How lies created the case for the Iraq war. By Nick Clark (Socialist Worker, Issue 2512, 12 July 2016). “Tony Blair did not go to war in Iraq because of ”˜mistakes’ or ”˜honestly held beliefs’””evidence given to the Chilcot inquiry exposes a deliberate process of lies to justify intervention.”

Chilcot report vindicates anti-war movement (Socialist Resistance, July 10, 2016). “Fred Leplat analyses the repercussions of the Chilcot report and the tasks that arises out of it for the left.” 2016chil5.jpg

Chilcot was vindication for everyone who opposed the Iraq War (RS21: Revolutionary Socialism in the 21st Century, July 7, 2016). “Seb Cooke discusses how the movement that opposed the Iraq War in 2003 has been vindicated in the findings of yesterday’s Chilcot report.”

UK showed no real interest in monitoring civilian casualties – Iraq Body Count on the Chilcot Report (Iraq Body Count, 7 July 2016)

Britain: Chilcot report rocks the Establishment. By Rob Sewell (In Defence of Marxism, 6 July 2016). “The report’s conclusions could not be more damning …”

For the anti-war movement, Chilcot is not the end. Blair must face charges. By Lindsey German (The Guardian, 6 July 2016). “Peace campaigners called for this report and predicted many of its conclusions. Now we need action to finally achieve justice for Iraq.”

Shimon Peres – i midten – modtog Nobels Fredspris i 1994 sammen med Yitzhak Rabin og Yasser Arafat (se også: links om Oslo-aftalerne, på  Socialistisk Bibliotek)

Shimon Peres (1923-2016). By Patrick Martin (World Socialist Web Site, 1 October 2016). “In reality, Peres was deeply implicated in many of the foulest historical crimes associated with the establishment, expansion and militarization of the state of Israel.”

Shimon Peres””war criminal and confidence trickster. By Simon Assaf (Socialist Worker, Issue 2523, 30 September 2016). “He is remembered as being the force behind an attempted peace with the Palestinians. But the Oslo process he championed turned out to be a trap.”

Press Statement: On the death of Shimon Peres, Apartheid collaborator and Israeli war criminal (BDS South Afrika, 29 September 2016). Shimon Peres on Apartheid South Africa: “Israel and [Apartheid] South Africa have one thing above all else in common: they are both situated in a predominantly hostile world inhabited by dark peoples.”

Shimon Peres from the perspective of his victims. By Ilan Pappe (The Electronic Intifada, 28 September 2016).
“Shimon Peres symbolized the beautification of Zionism, but the facts on the ground lay bare his role in perpetrating so much suffering and conflict.”

Shimon Peres was no peacemaker. I’ll never forget the sight of pouring blood and burning bodies at Qana. By Robert Fisk (The Independent, 28 September 2016). “Peres said the massacre came as a ”˜bitter surprise’. It was a lie: the UN had repeatedly told Israel the camp was packed with refugees.”

Simon Peres, as he was. By Michel Warschawski (AIC: Alternativenews.org, 28 September 2016). “A great statesman former Israeli president Shimon Peres was not. The architect and gravedigger of the Oslo Accords was a cunning politician, never elected by popular vote.”

Peres, Oslo and Peace (Counterfire, September 28, 2016). “Is Shimon Peres’ record as ‘dove-like’ as his obituaries makes out? Shabbir Lakha thinks not.”

How Shimon Peres stole the bomb with a bluff, and why military censor doesn’t want Israelis to know about it. By Richard Silverstein (Tikun Olam, September 28, 2016). “From almost the first moment after the State was founded Ben Gurion aspired to create a nuclear weapon.”

Was Shimon Peres a man of peace? By Gideon Levy (Haaretz, September 28, 2016). “The truth must be told: Shimon Peres wanted peace, but never saw Palestinians as equal to Jews.”

The other, darker legacy of Shimon Peres. By Haggai Matar (+972 Magazine, September 28, 2016). “Shimon Peres, the last member of Israel’s founding generation, was feted internationally as a visionary man of peace. His legacy is in fact far more complex, and often nefarious.”

Shimon Peres: Israeli war criminal whose victims the West ignored. By Ben White (MEMO, September 28, 2016). “Shimon Peres epitomised the disparity between Israel’s image in the West and the reality of its bloody, colonial policies in Palestine and the wider region.”

Shimon Peres, dead at 93 (Mondoweiss, September 28, 2016). “… Peres’s true legacy includes the ongoing colonization of Palestinian lands and creation of Israel’s nuclear weapon program.”

Shimon Peres 90th birthday: Career of land theft, killing civilians, assassinations, and wars. By Uri Avnery (Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, June 24, 2013). “If the life of Shimon Peres was a play, it would be difficult to classify. A tragedy? A comedy? A tragicomedy?”
