Speaking at the Liberal Democrat conference in Liverpool, he said the “green deal” would lead to thousands of workers modernising around 26m homes to make them more energy efficient. CBI director-general Richard Lambert said: “We welcome Huhne’s commitment to developing clean coal and gas through four carbon capture and storage plants and his recognition of the important role new nuclear power will play in a low-carbon future.” But he said the CBI was against the idea of raising the EU emissions reduction target to 30 per cent.

The project is located in the Rigot park in Geneva, alongside the Avenue de France, near the Sismondi school. The choice for the location in the park was impulsed by an urgent and temporary measure aiming at accommodating 370 migrants. The project consists of two symmetrical buildings of 5 levels made of 230 prefabricated wooden modules. The dwellings are accessed by an external gallery open to a public courtyard, which connects to the Sismondi streetcar stop to the Rigot park. Through its constructive mode, the project aims to limit its environmental impact at various scales. The buildings are bound to be relocated within ten years and the site returned to its original state. Anticipating the rehabilitation of the site and the recycling of the materials upon removal, the foundations are made of wood and can be reused on the next building location.Save this picture!© Marcel KultscherThe crafting of the foundation through a network of piles and wooden footings reduces the project’s impact on its natural ground. This totally “dry” construction avoids any contamination of the surface water network during construction and frees the process of the burden of recycling concrete in the dismantling phase of the project. The project anticipates the specificity of a population that is not always the mirror of the typical couple with two kids. To respond to the waxing and waning of the demand, the project proposes evolving apartment typologies. The modular system allows the housing units to vary from 2 to 8 rooms through a play of fires doors or conversion of kitchen spaces to the bedroom.Save this picture!© Enric Rovira FerrerSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Marcel KultscherThe modularity of the apartments and their subdivisions also allows them to consider alternatives uses such as hotels industry or student housing. The set of the composition of the prefabricated modules will enable the creation of buildings with different volumetry for its future(s) reconstruction(s). The prefabrication and delivery of the finished modules were decisive for the construction site planning. This organization which plans three worksites in parallel (foundations/prefabrication of modules/assembly and finishing) allows the project to be carried out in a short period of time.Save this picture!© Marcel KultscherThe use of wood from Geneva’s forests for the foundations and the building envelope was imposed since the start of the project, which led to a process that involved the local timber manufactures, resulting in a reduction of “grey energy”. The quantity of wood that was used for the project is estimated at 3200 m³ of certified “Label Bois Suisse” wood (formerly COBS), with the exception of the larch window frames that consolidate the façade. The search of a character that expresses the wooden structure makes a statement about rational aesthetics as the essence of the project. Starting from the supply of a single dimension of raw sawn boards, the composition of the façade and the execution of a part of the exterior installations are based on this positive constraint. For the façade, the construction element is declined in two details for the railings and cladding.Save this picture!© Enric Rovira FerrerProject gallerySee allShow less77 Washington Workspace / Worrell Yeung ArchitectureSelected ProjectsATOP Beauty Clinic / TEAM55667788Selected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Avenue de France 36, 1202 Genève, SwitzerlandLocation to be used only as a reference.

The struggle to reverse imperialist militarism and the economic crisis in Africa

first_imgThe following remarks were made by Abayomi Azikiwe at the Workers World Party National Conference Nov. 7-8 in New York City.Africa has been severely set back with the imperialist destruction of Libya, along with the interference in the democratic processes in Egypt and Tunisia.Nearly five years ago a rebellion erupted in southern Tunisia after a young vendor set himself on fire due to the horrendous economic challenges facing postcolonial states. This rebellion soon spread throughout the North African country, resulting in the toppling of longtime dictator Zen El Abidine Ben Ali by mid-January 2011.Two weeks after the installation of an interim government in Tunisia, the unrest spread to Egypt, leading to the forced resignation of then-President Hosni Mubarak. The following year, in 2012, the Muslim-Brotherhood-allied Freedom and Justice Party were declared victorious in national presidential elections.Demonstrations spread to Algeria and later Yemen during 2011, bringing about different outcomes. The much-championed rebellions in both Tunisia and Egypt did not lead to the consolidation of progressive forces which could seize power and establish a political order committed to genuine revolutionary transformation and socialism.Of course, when a rebellion erupted in Libya on Feb. 17, a more ominous trend was soon revealed. The character of this unrest was decisively counterrevolutionary, targeting the Jamahiriya system under Col. Muammar Gaddafi. When the armed opposition groups were not able to sustain their rampage in the face of growing resistance to the Western-backed counterrevolutionaries by the loyalist troops, the U.S. and its NATO allies engineered two U.N. Security Council resolutions, which in essence provided a pseudo-legal rationale for the blanket bombing of Libya. This bombing operation continued from March 19 to Oct. 31, laying waste to large sections of the country, destroying the infrastructure of the Libyan state and breaking down all the advancements made since the Sept. 1, 1969, revolution.Today Libya is a major source of instability throughout North and West Africa, leading a trail of death and destruction into the Middle East and all the way to Southern Asia. Developments since 2011 involving imperialist militarism have compounded the already-existing crises in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Yemen. Consequently, we are witnessing the worst international humanitarian disaster since the conclusion of World War II. Well over 50 million people have been displaced internally as well as outside of their national borders. Contiguous states in Africa and the Middle East, combined with European countries in the South and East of the continent, are bearing the brunt of the ongoing migrant flows. The racism and xenophobia inherited from the collapse of socialism in the COMECON sector is illustrated through the hatred, brutality and marginalization of the hundreds of thousands flooding into Europe and the millions who are destined to come.In Egypt a military-turned-civilian regime has been in power since July 2013, continuing the decades-long subsidization of the neocolonial state by the Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon. Neighboring Tunisia has been largely returned to the political collaborators of the Ben Ali regime, taking its place as well in the so-called Washington-led “war on terrorism.” Current crisis, a product of U.S. imperialist foreign policyAt present the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) is escalating its deployments across the continent through direct intervention and partnerships with individual states and regional organizations. Emboldened by its operations in Libya, Tunisia and Egypt, imperialism is spreading its tentacles deeper into the continent.An AFRICOM base in the Horn of Africa nation of Djibouti at Camp Lemonier is being refurbished for the expanding mission, involving thousands of Pentagon troops. Airstrips are being constructed in West, Central and Eastern Africa to ostensibly assist African Union member-states in the global fight against “terrorism.”Efforts aimed at the creation of an African Standby Force, which was first advanced by the Pan-Africanist and socialist leader of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, in the early 1960s, and later by Col. Muammar Gaddafi in the 2000s, have now been realized — absent its revolutionary orientation. Recent exercises of the ASF in South Africa have prompted articles even in the bourgeois press noting the dependent character of such operations, which are relying upon funding from the Pentagon and European Union allies in NATO.Any continental military force aimed at fostering peace and stability in Africa must be independent of imperialism both politically and economically. Otherwise such efforts will serve as an appendage of the Pentagon-NATO forces and consequently serve the interests of neocolonialism, as opposed to anti-imperialism and the much-needed socialist future.   Unravelling of false recovery, imperatives for socialist solutionsThis crisis of imperialist militarism is coupled with the emerging debt dilemma resulting from the ongoing economic decline that originated from the advanced capitalist states. Despite the plethora of articles and reports over the last few years hailing what is described as phenomenal economic growth in Africa, these states at the conclusion of 2015 are witnessing a recrudescence of higher-debt service ratios, joblessness and a rapid devaluation in currencies partly stemming from the decline in oil and other commodity prices due to capitalist overproduction.At the same time this resurfacing of a monumental debt burden is giving rise to militant working-class struggles through industrial actions, student unrest and a re-examination of socialism. In Nigeria, Ghana and South Africa — three African states designated as “emerging economies” — workers and youth are engaging in strikes and mass demonstrations demanding action to halt the rapid decline in living standards fueled by inflation and the diminishing rate of direct foreign investment.Nonetheless, this developing crisis, which is not limited to Africa but extends to all the oil-producing states, from Russia and Iran to Venezuela and Brazil, requires an ideological and political response. The lessons of Egypt and Tunisia instruct us that any uprising must be informed by anti-imperialist and anti-capitalist politics. Otherwise the Libyan model will spread throughout the continent, leaving the course of the struggle much more complex and burdensome. Rising oil and mineral production without a transformation of the relations of production in the emerging economies will only benefit imperialism in the short- and medium-term. What is required is a resolution of the contradiction between the capitalist modes of production and the social relations of production.   The only solution is socialist revolution throughout the region, in which the workers, farmers and youth can determine their future without the domination of Western financial institutions bolstered by the CIA, the Pentagon and NATO forces. A break with the world capitalist system will heighten the socioeconomic crisis in the so-called Western, advanced industrialized states, where workers and youth are also subjected to higher levels of exploitation and political repression.The ruling-class interests based in the West depend upon the acquisition of natural resources and labor from the oppressed nations on the terms set by the capitalist corporations and financial institutions. Concurrently, the workers and oppressed in the imperialist states are being required to sacrifice their standard of living through the decline in wages and the evisceration of public education and social services, along with the theft of pensions funds and the transfer of public assets to private firms and authorities.Therefore, the basis for international revolution exists. We must link the struggles of the workers and the oppressed globally. U.S. imperialism, the center of all exploitation and degradation in the today’s world, must be brought under the control of the majority of the people. It is only through this revolutionary transformation that genuine peace, stability and mutual cooperation among the nations of the world can be achieved.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
