rEVOLUTION


O vírus da revolução propaga-se pelo Magrebe:

A man has died after setting himself on fire at a government building in Algeria, state media has reported, echoing the self-immolation that triggered the protests that toppled the leader of neighbouring Tunisia.

The daily El Khabar reported on Sunday that Mohsen Bouterfif had died of his burns after setting himself on fire on Thursday in front of the town hall in Boukhadra, east of Tebessa.

The paper reported that it hapened after a meeting with the mayor who was unable to provide Bouterfif with a job and a house.

It was the one of four attempted public suicides in Algeria this past week in apparent copycat replays of last month's self-immolation of a 26-year-old graduate in Tunisia which triggered a popular revolt that led to the ouster of that country's autocratic ruler, Zine El Abidine Ben Ali.

En Jordanie, où la grogne monte contre l'inflation, plusieurs «sit-in» ont eu lieu ce week-end, dont un de syndicalistes samedi devant l'ambassade de Tunisie à Amman, appelant à la propagation de la «révolte de jasmin». Au Yémen, un millier d'étudiants ont manifesté à Sanaa pour demander aux peuples arabes de se soulever contre leurs dirigeants. À Khartoum, au Soudan, un ténor de l'opposition, Moubaral al-Fadil, a estimé que le pays était «prêt pour un soulèvement populaire»…

Si contagieux soit-il, le parfum de liberté qui flotte sur Tunis est lourd d'incertitude.

O silêncio da rua Árabe é o mais estranho a ressalvar.

Normalmente tão ruidosa e participante, está a deixar Mubarak e meio mundo à beira de um ataque de nervos.

Recomendo a leitura do último capítulo do "Violência" de Zizek, onde ele explica sob que circunstâncias o mais violento a fazer pode ser nada fazer.

A seguir com atenção.
