'Guantanamo of the East' Ukraine Locks Up Refugees at EU's Behest | Der Spiegel

by Graham H. Cox last modified Mar 02, 2015 09:10 PM
"The European Union has provided Ukraine with €30 million ($34 million) in funding, which Kiev is using to build and renovate migrant detention centers, along with other facilities where they are housed temporarily. The International Organization for Migration received several million euros to support Ukrainian authorities in such areas as the internment of undocumented migrants. Brussels is apparently hoping that the system will reduce the number of asylum seekers in Europe -- without attracting too much attention."

Kind of a different state?

by JBB last modified Mar 02, 2015 08:21 PM
Among socialists and the radical left around the world, all eyes have been on Greece and SYRIZA--during the election campaign leading up to the January 25 vote that put the left to power in Greece for the first time in the post-Second World War era; during the opening days and weeks of the new government, when veteran radicals took over ministries and began carrying out long-awaited changes, with the promise of more to come; and now after the disappointing headlong retreat of the leaders of the new government in their first confrontation with the rulers of Europe over the austerity agenda. Here, Todd Chretien, editor of a new annotated edition of Lenin's State and Revolution, comments on an interview with socialist author Leo Panitch, published at Jacobin under the title "A different kind of state," about the hopes for change under the new government--and the subsequent debate among socialists who have drawn different conclusions.
