Chers et cheres, je vous prie de lire l’article de Janine jalkh qui a couvert pour l’Orient le jour la table ronde qui a eu lieu a l’Institut des Sciences Politiques sur les Intifadas arabes.

Les intifadas dans le monde arabe : approches explicatives
Jeanine Jalkh

publié le dimanche 24 avril 2011
 

Conférence Comment expliquer ce qui se passe aujourd’hui dans le monde arabe ? Quels sont les facteurs qui ont déclenché ces turbulences ? Telles étaient les questions soulevées lors d’une causerie organisée par l’Institut des sciences politiques (ISP) de l’USJ.

Sans prétendre apporter des réponses définitives au phénomène des révolutions en chaîne qui continuent d’agiter la scène arabe, les participants, deux professeurs d’université, Fahmiyeh Charafeddine et Raghid Solh, un syndicaliste, Ghassan Slaiby, et une experte en médias sociaux, Rita Chemali, se sont penchés sur la question en apportant des éclairages divers, de type social, politique et économique.

En essayant de répondre à la question de savoir comment ces révolutions ont débuté, Fahmiyeh Charafeddine, professeur de sociologie à l’UL, a mis en exergue ce qu’elle a appelé les « accumulations négatives » – le despotisme, les misères subsidiaires, l’exclusion etc. – et les accumulations positives – les nouvelles idées des droits de l’homme, la chute de l’URSS, le colloque de Pékin – au cours des soixante dernières années dans le monde arabe. C’est le brassage de ces accumulations contraires qui a conduit, à un moment donné, à l’explosion populaire, explique-t-elle.

Tout au long de son exposé, Mme Charafeddine insistera sur le caractère spontané de ces mouvements, « qui n’ont pas été médités intellectuellement », éludant la théorie du complot qui consiste à y voir une réaction téléguidée par l’Occident, plus particulièrement les États-Unis. Selon elle, l’apport des idées occidentales a été certes important, mais il faut reconnaître que le corpus idéologique des révolutions nationalistes et par la suite socialistes dans le monde arabe existait déjà. Il a largement contribué à donner naissance à un nouveau corpus qui a inspiré les nouveaux slogans des jeunes réformateurs, souligne-t-elle.

Politologue et conseiller à l’Institut Issam Farès, Raghid Solh s’est penché sur ce qu’il a appelé la dichotomie entre démocratie socio-économique et démocratie socio-politique. Une dichotomie qu’il juge fallacieuse, puisqu’en réalité elle servait l’intérêt des régimes despotiques dans la région. Après avoir expliqué l’échec du système néolibéral notamment en Tunisie et en Égypte (la privatisation n’aura profité qu’aux classes dirigeantes corrompues en affaiblissant le secteur public), système qui a élargi le fossé entre riches et pauvres, M. Solh a démontré comment les promesses de réformes politiques sont également restées de l’ordre du théorique. Et de conclure que les masses arabes ont fini par défier le statu quo en réclamant simultanément une justice sociale et un système de gouvernance démocratique.

Ghassan Slaiby, représentant au sein de l’Internationale des services publics, s’est penché pour sa part sur le rôle des syndicats dans les mouvements sociaux arabes récents. Il a relevé qu’à l’exception de l’Union générale des travailleurs tunisiens, de la Fédération générale des syndicats à Bahreïn et de différentes centrales syndicales marocaines, les centrales syndicales arabes ont appuyé les régimes politiques et n’ont pas participé aux mouvements sociaux. « Face aux centrales syndicales appuyant le pouvoir, des groupes ouvriers et des syndicats indépendants ou autonomes à l’égard des centrales et du régime politique ont participé aux mouvements. C’est ce qui apparaît manifestement dans trois pays jusqu’à présent : en Égypte, en Algérie et en Jordanie », a-t-il précisé.

Spécialiste des médias sociaux, Rita Chemali a présenté, de manière exhaustive, les différents médias numériques qui, a-t-elle dit, « ont constitué la pierre de voûte des mouvements sociaux ». L’intervenante a passé en revue les différents sites interactifs utilisés pour propager l’information, coordonner les mouvements des jeunes et inciter à l’action, « créant ainsi de nouveaux liens de solidarité et de sociabilité notamment pour contourner la censure ». La nouvelle génération de médias a également été fort utile par moments pour alerter sur les disparus lors des arrestations, voire pour les retrouver. Le rôle de ces médias a été certes primordial, mais il ne faut pas oublier que la révolution effective a bel et bien eu lieu dans la rue, a néanmoins souligné Mme Chemali.

Bahrain,

A beautiful country I visited for a very short time,

now suffering from a crisis internal and regional one.

the stories and news I m receiving from Bahrain are mitigated.

I just hope for this country peace, and development based on tolerance, respect, and freedom of all citizens.

below dear friends and readers you may read pieces of what I m getting from Bahrain. the sources are sometimes known, sometimes not.

for all Men, Women working in Bahrain and living there, courage, and hope that the citizens of the country can truly live in a country for all, without discrimination for any part.

I am not sure of the source of the first link:  the pictures are not for young children to see or read. What I Refuse and do not tolerate are the Sectarian talk and comments on those pictures! NO  TO SECTARIAN DISCRIMINATION AND DIVISION IN BAHRAIN

a BEAUTIFUL TEXT BY A GROUP OF citizen in Bahrain, asking for a NATIONAL RECONCILIATION, LOVE, RESPECT, AND TOLERANCE AROUND ONE NATION.

in my opinion this message ” invitation for love” is to spread widely!

Rita

Invitation for Tolerance and Respect in Bahrain

A great news I have received this morning, is that Ali is free.

Ali has blogged about Bahreini’s issues. And he was arrested and tortured, and imprisoned.

The good thing in this story that the minister of foreign affairs in Bahrein Khalida khalifa , is a user of Twitter, and social devices.

He reads the posts, and is connected to the social networks, I hope that he helped in freeing Ali, and will continue to help the freedom of speech in Bahrain.

During the workshop held in Morocco, organised by ASWAT , the bloggers ( MENA network) took Ali’s case as their case and tried to see how they can organise and advocacy campaign to free him.

Many e-activists as Nasser, Hisham, and others, had many ideas:

Nasser in Budapest at the google conference, distributed widely  the sticker ” free Ali”

Hisham took pictures of all the participants with a banner Free Ali…. I have one too!

the e-activists created a blog, on WordPress to cover Ali’s story, and a group on Facebook to keep in touch with all those who joined the campaign.

twitter and other devices were also used!

Arab People are voicing out their needs, No one can stop them from expressing their social , religious, economical, and political frustration.

With their Actions, protests, campaign, sit in, blogging and else, they are being able to tell their regimes and governments what they Want and the way they want to do it!!!

Good job guys and Girls!

Good job connected people, and people on this planet!!

Rita!!!

Ali Abdulemam Bahreini Blogger

The People (We the People) are playing the most important role in the Arab World.

In Lebanon in 2005, peaceful collective actions by a huge mass of mobilized citizen were able to make a cabinet Leave, and the Syrian army leave, and the independence of Lebanon Be. The story of the Lebanese spring was made in 2005 by the people, the young, the university youth, and the help of a coalition of political forces.

In Tunis a boy that had a university degree was able by his nonetheless violent action (burn himself) to mobilize his fellows against an unbearable social situation. Judges, doctors, women and men, without sexual differences, or gender and class differences demanded that the dictator leave.

In Egypt few of what I call” e-activists” were able to organize marches, and protests, in a closed system,  that usually close roads, follow activists in metro-stations, and intimidate all kind of opposition, by a well formed police against all kind of Human rights of speech and group.

Those few e-activists were able to mobilize millions of people in Egypt and in the World for their cause against the Regime of Mubarak, they were able by their tenacity and will to down the pharaoh, even against the will of first  “class” nations, that were lobbying for a smooth transition, forgetting that people’s lives were cut in an un-smooth manner!

In Yemen, People are trying to remove a dictator from its place, a well kept place since years and decades.

In Bahrein, bloggers and activists are being arrested, and tortured and intimidated with allegations on them being terrorists,

People have been killed while they were protesting in a beautiful square, the pearl square in a peaceful way;

In Libya the story is the same, massive protests are being organized, the voices are loud and clear, No to a Bloody regim, No to Dictatorship”…

But as in Tunis, in Bahrein, in Egypt, unarmed demonstrators are being massacred. This time not only, with horses and “baltajy” but with planes. The dictator is using the pilots of the Nation, to crush the multiplication of the non violent democratic movements that are occupying multiple streets in many cities by the people of the Nation.  Unarmed demonstrators are tortured, killed, firebombed, molested, and the synonyms are many, and the bloody actions of the dictator’s are many… but the People will decide What they want, the Way they want.

People of all Nations, decades of tyranny, brutality, despotism, nepotism, are over, When you the People declares a Game Over.

We did it once in Lebanon, but our system, the political system needs a change, a complete make over, and we will voice out our frustration,  against a political forces that are playing with our well-being, we will say like you Game Over with the bad social Situation we are all living.

rita!
