Who Took Down Golden Dawn?
Antonis A. Ellinas / Le Monde diplomatique (Paris)
At a time when Golden Dawn tried to dominate in the streets, dozens of small but well-organised groups — from teacher unions to human rights advocacy networks — put aside their differences and pooled resources to organise thousands of neighbourhood demonstrations, protests and meetings against it.
Khateera: Women Are Dangerous
Marta Vidal / Middle East Eye (London)
A new feminist initiative founded in March called Khateera (the name in Arabic being the feminine derivative of the word “dangerous”) presents itself as a platform for every woman who “takes her place in this world without asking for permission”.
The finance minister is transferring the cost of the economic crisis on to the working class and the poor. However, these communities vow to continue fighting to be heard.

Maduro proposed the new anti-blockade law, arguing it is essential to helping circumvent the sanctions. But some sectors believe it represents an important departure from the socialist policies of his predecessor, Hugo Chávez.
