The Swiss-based bank said yesterday the cuts are intended to help shift resources to growth areas, but would not be drawn on which departments will feel the pain or benefit of this shake-up. “We continue to be proactive about monitoring the size of our business relative to client opportunities and market conditions,” it said.Credit Suisse has strengthened its position during the credit crisis, which it escaped with far lower writedowns than rival investment banks such as Citigroup, Merrill Lynch and JPMorgan Chase.Barclays’ investment unit BarCap announced it was cutting around 130 of its London back office staff on Wednesday after revenues fell more than 15 per cent from the first quarter to the second. Global investment bank income was down by an average of about a third in the second quarter from the first, analysts have said, with fixed income, currencies, equities and M&A advisory desks bearing the brunt of the slowdown.

Coup in Egypt: What it means for the revolution

first_imgJuly 8 — This Workers World Commentary was first written July 5, before the failed attempt to make Mohammed ElBaradei the prime minister and before the fighting to restore Mohammed Morsi as president broke out. What appears below includes slight additions but is essentially the same.Protesters in Tahrir Square shout slogans against President Mohammed Morsi as they watch his speech. Cairo, Egypt, June 26.An unprecedented outpouring of millions of Egyptians from all across the country has shown that the Egyptian revolution is not only alive but is on the rise. Having accomplished the overthrow of dictator Hosni Mubarak by protracted mobilization, enormous heroism and great sacrifice, the masses have once again come into the streets to demand the fulfillment of the revolution that they fought for in 2011.But while the revolution shows its numerical power, there is confusion about the role of the military — which threatens to derail the revolution.Alongside the mass mobilization, a brazen military coup d’état has taken place in Egypt.Egyptian Army guards road near Presidential Palace, one day after July 3 coup.The Morsi government had earned popular anger by bringing its own brand of social and political reaction. Meanwhile, it did nothing to counter the growing economic hardship of the Egyptian masses.Whatever the grievances against the Morsi regime, however — and there are many — even worse for the Egyptian people would be the reemergence of the reactionary, repressive, corrupt military machine and security forces created and funded by the Pentagon.The brutal military regime has sent tanks and troops to overthrow the Morsi government by force, arresting hundreds of leaders of his political party, the Freedom and Justice Party, and of the Muslim Brotherhood. This has liquidated any semblance of even a minimal expression of the bourgeois democracy represented by Morsi’s election. The generals propose to restore it once they have rearranged things more to their liking.The role in the coup of U.S. imperialism, the real dominant force in Egypt, is unclear. Sections of the U.S. ruling class were clearly worried about the coup’s consequences. Others were cautiously in favor of it. The New York Times opposed the coup, while the Washington Post, which is usually more hawkish than the Times, went so far as to demand a cutoff of U.S. military aid to Cairo. They fear future uprisings. The Wall Street Journal, however, favored the coup.It is a certainty that this coup did not take Washington by surprise. The Pentagon generals had to have been fully informed and probably consulted on the “new path” that the military was going to lay out. They will undoubtedly try to influence the outcome. Defense Minister Abdel Fattah Al Sisi, who announced the coup and charted the “road map,” was educated at the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pa.Egyptian military, client of U.S. imperialismWhatever the case may be, the Egyptian military regime had been a client of U.S. imperialism for decades before the coup, and will continue to be a client after the coup. And whether Washington approved this coup or not, U.S. imperialism will fully support whatever Egyptian regime emerges and continue to ply it with arms because of Egypt’s strategic importance to U.S. domination over the Middle East and its oil.The Egyptian generals have their own urgent interests in carrying out the coup. The corrupt and decadent military high command is more than just the state. They are an important part of the Egyptian capitalist ruling class. They own enormous properties in industry and commerce. The officer corps have their own hospitals, schools and clubs and are a privileged elite that has looted the economy at will and wants to maintain this position.The military has moved preemptively in an attempt to dissipate the growing tidal wave of mass protests that showed no confidence in the Morsi government and demanded early presidential elections. This has enabled the generals to get temporary credit with the masses and strike a blow at their historical adversaries, the Muslim Brotherhood.This political opening was created by an unprincipled and opportunistic alliance between, on the one hand, misleaders of the secular movement, sections of the youth movement, and Islamic forces in rivalry with the Brotherhood and, on the other hand, the military regime. The military’s so-called “road map” to democracy was worked out in advance with Mohamed ElBaradei, the former director general of the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency — a person thoroughly within the ranks of world imperialism’s high-level servants.Morsi regime betrayed 2011 democratic revolutionThe Morsi regime had honored the Egyptian peace treaty with Israel that left the Palestinians oppressed. It even flooded the tunnels between Egypt and Gaza in an attempt to destroy a vital economic connection circumventing the Israeli blockade. It did not prosecute those from the Hosni Mubarak regime who murdered the youth during the 2011 revolution. It looked the other way when there were assaults on women.The Morsi regime went along with International Monetary Fund demands to cut subsidies for food and electricity. It came out for the overthrow of the Syrian government and never showed even the slightest degree of independence from imperialism. The regime disregarded secular objections to the emphasis on Islamic law, and it never really reached out to the youth.The Morsi regime betrayed the democratic revolution that the masses had heroically fought for in Tahrir Square and throughout Egypt in 2011. In a popular petition, “Tamarrud” (rebellion), which was signed by more than 15 million people, the originators denounced neglect of the poor, subservience to the U.S. and lack of justice for the martyrs of 2011.These grievances are entirely justified. But the reactionary forces partial to the old regime embraced the petition campaign and swelled the numbers of protesters, knowing full well that once Morsi was ousted and the military was back in the saddle, none of the progressive demands would ever be satisfied. It was crude political cynicism and a completely underhanded maneuver.Although the generals are already moving forces from the Mubarak era into positions of power in the new state apparatus, this whole precarious structure may fall apart quickly. Popular support for the military rulers cannot last, as another betrayal of the revolutionary masses is on the agenda.The army enjoyed much prestige in Egyptian society after Col. Gamal Abdel Nasser and the Association of Free Officers threw out the British feudal puppet King Farouk in 1952 and politically liberated the country from colonial domination. It gained even more prestige with its wars against Israel. But after Nasser, Anwar Sadat in 1979 signed a peace treaty with Israel that had been negotiated at Camp David, Md., and the Egyptian army became a pawn of the Pentagon.Illusions about the military were prevalent in the 2011 phase of the revolution, when the slogan was raised that “the army and the people are one.” These illusions have now resurfaced, and the generals have stoked them in every way.The people who wanted justice, national liberation, economic security and political liberty in 2011, and who are now praising the coup, will have to go into the streets again to reclaim the revolution by independent mass struggle. The lesson of this coup may be that in order to obtain any genuine bourgeois democracy, the “deep state” — the military, the security forces, the police — must be destroyed. So long as they are in place, they will do all in their power, openly or behind the scenes, to prevent any true mass democracy or significant improvement in the life of the people.To get democracy, it will be necessary to destroy the Egyptian state and break its connections to U.S. imperialism and the Pentagon. That will lay the basis for sweeping away Egyptian capitalism, which is really the only road to liberation.Long live the Egyptian revolution!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Investigation is stalled eight months after journalist was slain

In his last column, published the previous day, he criticised the disappearance of several kilos of cocaine after they were seized by the police.Speaking openly on 26 April, his family said he had felt under threat prior to his murder. He had just investigated and reported on the activities of a cartel of Colombian origin that controls drug trafficking on Venezuela’s Atlantic coast. He had also accused a number of Venezuelan police and army officers of colluding with this cartel.According to his family, he met Vice-President José Vicente Rangel (himself a former journalist) two weeks before his death and told him he feared be could be murdered. He also reportedly gave Rangel the names of the officers he suspected of abetting the drug cartel – the commander of the National Guard’s 7th region, Alexis Maneiro Gómez, Col. Juan Fabricio Tirry of the defence ministry, and Monagas former police chief José Manuel del Moral.His family said none of the three has even been questioned by investigators. “Prosecutor Alejandro Castillo has taken no initiative during the past four months,” Marcano’s sister, Niurka Marcano, was quoted as saying by the daily El Universal on 27 April.Only one suspect has been arrested, an individual nicknamed Freddy Caracas, but he was murdered in prison in December. Another suspect, Tony Canaves, who has prior arrests for drug trafficking, has not been questioned or arrested “because he is an associate of the governor of Monagas,” Niurka Marcano said.Reached by Reporters Without Borders, a supreme court official did not dispute what the family said. “The family should file a petition with the court for the investigation to be relaunched, as it is true there is a paralysis,” said the source, who insisted by way of explanation on the “restructuring of the judicial system that is under way.”Judicial commission president Luis Velázquez Alvaray meanwhile announced on 2 May that 16 judges are being suspended on suspicion of colluding with drug traffickers or for releasing drug traffickers in the northwestern state of Lara. The restructuring could soon affect other states.

We recognize that does not happen for all members of our community and that must change,” said Serrano during her presentation.Abernethy, who represents the Altadena/Pasadena chapter of The Links said the organization wanted to push for change.“We want to contribute to transparency, accountability and contribute to a change in policing here in Pasadena,” Abernethy said.All told, the commission will consist of 11 members, including one selected by each City Councilmember and Mayor Victor Gordo.Those choices are expected to be made at next week’s meeting.Annang and Serrano were unanimously recommended by the Public Safety Committee two weeks ago, but when the matter came to the City Council last week, four councilmembers said they wanted to hear from all of the applicants including those recommended by the PSC.“Many people are wondering why the unanimous recommendations of the Public Safety Committee were not received immediately and instead opened up again,” said Erica Romero.The council chose from five applicants, including Alpha Kappa Alpha’s Patrice Marshall McKenzie, Mikala Rhan of Learning Works.Rahn, the only white applicant, did not shy away from her race, and pushed her credentials. The former Pasadena Unified School District board member runs Learning Works Charter School and works with students impacted by police encounters.“This position will allow me to give back to the community I live in and work in,” said Mikala Rahn. “I am white but I have only worked for people of color for 15 years at Learning Works. When I go to court with my students I watch judges and lawyers look directly at me and overlook Black and Brown parents. It is embarrassing.”The council’s vote comes as the nation continues to reel from officer involved incidents.Daunte Wright, a 20-year-old Black man shot and killed in Minneapolis when a police officer reportedly mistakenly grabbed her gun instead of her Taser and shot him.Officer Kim Potter, who shot Wright, resigned on Tuesday. The Police Chief also resigned, Potter has been arrested and charged with second degree murder.Last week, Pasadena residents joined the nation as they commended prosecutors for the murder conviction of former police officer Derek Chauvin. Chauvin killed George Floyd during a traffic stop last year when he put his knee in Floyd’s neck for nine minutes.That incident renewed the calls for oversight in Pasadena and moved the City Council to pass a local police oversight ordinance.
