Pambazuka - Why does Malawi continue oil exploration as global prices fall? Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Pambazuka - Why does Malawi continue oil exploration as global prices fall?: Oil has not been as profitable as it was in the past due to changes in the global political economy. The profits that oil producing countries were once yielding have drastically decreased worldwide. Already, the world has witnessed oil producing countries such as the US lay off nearly 10,000 workers and British Petroleum let go of 4,000 employees. Angola and Nigeria, Africa’s largest oil producers, have also seen their oil profits decrease steadily. Additionally, the recent lifting of sanctions in Iran, who once had been unable to sell oil on the international market, will further impact this sector.

Iran has been cash strapped due to the international embargo placed on its trade years ago and has a plethora of oil to unleash on the global market [3]. It holds the fourth-largest oil reserves in the world and roughly 20 to 40 million barrels in storage. Therefore, the lifting of international sanctions means the likely influx of Iranian oil on the world market will cause oil prices to drastically drop and will lead to greater competition for market share and further uncertainty in this market. Other than Iran, there are a plethora of other factors - including viable alternatives and improvements in fuel technologies - that are leading current oil producing countries to diversify and financial lending institutions to predict an end of the era of oil.

I CARE - - French government is destroying homes, schools, and medical centre for 1,000 refugees Aboriginal News Group Newswire

I CARE - - News - Internet Centre Anti Racism Europe: 15/2/2016- The French government has told over 800 refugees currently living in the so-called Calais Jungle that they will be expelled from the camp in the next few days. The planned clearance of the southern section of the camp will also involve the demolition of three mosques, one church, three schools, a women and children's center, youth center and legal lentre. Also going is the vaccination center credited with containing an outbreak of measles in the camp, the Jungle Books Library, a theatre and three hot food distribution points that currently serve 2,000 meals each day. In a statement, the French government estimates 800 to 1,000 refugees will be affected by the clearance, which they state will take place "within a week". If clear signs of movement are observed within the camp, a stay may be granted until the affected refugees have managed to salvage their shelters. However, aid organisations such as Help Refugees suggest the actual figure is likely to be twice as high, as around 2000 people currently live in the area earmarked for clearance.

Iraq: Yazidi women take up arms against ISIS | World War 4 Report Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Iraq: Yazidi women take up arms against ISIS | World War 4 Report: Cpt Khatoon Khider of the Sun Ladies told reporters: 'Whenever a war wages, our women end up as the victims. Now we are defending ourselves from the evil... We will do whatever is asked of us... Our elite force is a model for other women in the region. We want everyone to take up weapons and know how to protect themselves from the evil." The Sun Ladies are part of the Yazidi militia now preparing an offensive on ISIS-held Mosul with Peshmerga forces. The UN says ISIS still holds some 3,500 people captive in Iraq, the majority women and girls from the Yazidi community. Last month, the director of the UN human rights office in Iraq, Francesco Motta, accused ISIS of genocide, saying the jihadist group is seeking to "destroy part or the whole of the Yazidi people."

In last interview, former UN Secretary-General defends Cairo's crackdowns - Al-Monitor: the Pulse of the Middle East Aboriginal News Group Newswire

In last interview, former UN Secretary-General defends Cairo's crackdowns - Al-Monitor: the Pulse of the Middle East: [al-monitor.com] Boutros Boutros-Ghali, the former secretary-general of the United Nations and the honorary president of the National Council for Human Rights, gave an exclusive phone interview to Al-Monitor on Feb. 8, a week before his death at the age of 93. He said that the current climate does not allow the full application of human rights, given that Egypt has gone through two consecutive revolutions, followed by protests and demonstrations on the part of the Muslim Brotherhood and its supporters who are difficult to contain.

In regard to the Renaissance Dam, which the Ethiopian government is determined to complete, Boutros-Ghali said that the Egyptian government has neglected this issue for many years under former President Hosni Mubarak, stressing that any demands for military intervention in Ethiopia reflect “ignorance.”
