VIP Hajj: Saudis Accommodate the Rich, Turn Blind Eye to the Poor

Instead of pouring millions into its inglorious war against Yemen, Saudi Arabia should use its enormous wealth to make Hajj safe, and not only for VIPs but for all Muslims, Northampton-based journalist and historian Vijay Prashad stresses.

Riyadh spares no expense in its bombing Yemen, the poorest Arab state, into submission, while turning a deaf ear to repeated pleas to bring an end to the Yemeni humanitarian catastrophe, Vijay Prashad, Director of International Studies at Trinity College, points out. He adds that this is hardly surprising given Saudi Arabia's systematic disdain for the lives of thousands of ordinary Muslim pilgrims.

From Palestine to Yemen: honour and shame of the Arab world

Translated from French by Jenny Bright for Tlaxcala

 While Saudi Arabia is trying its best to supplant Israel in terms of crime, terror and barbarism, pushing a whole country to the edge of the abyss to general indifference, the poorest of the Arab countries gives the world a lesson in courage, dignity and lucidity, following the example of the Palestinian people.

The Saudi-American war against Yemen has now lasted for more than four months. It has caused more than 4,000 deaths, including 3,000 directly caused by the terrorist bombings of the Arab coalition against Yemen, with 20,000 injured and nearly 1.3 million displaced. 6.5 million people are immediately threatened by famine, while 13 million – half the population – lack access to the most basic means of subsistence and are reduced to a permanent struggle to gather their daily bread.

Over 450,000 Healthcare Workers to Strike in UK, Demanding Higher Salaries

Over 450,000 National Health Service (NHS) workers are expected to strike over pay in England Monday.
"NHS staff across England are on strike for fair pay from 7am to 11am [06:00-10:00 GMT] on Monday 13 October," UNISON, one of UK's largest trade unions, reported on its website Monday, also saying that "UNISON members working in the NHS in England will go on strike on Monday 13 October from 7am to 11 am and will be taking action short of strike action from 14 to 17 October".
A total of five British unions, including UNISON and Unite, will take part in the protest.
The four-hour strike, which is the first protest held by British healthcare workers in over 30 years, comes after an expected 1 percent pay rise for NHS staff was blocked in the United Kingdom.
According to UK Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, NHS cannot afford to raise the salaries of its entire staff by 1 percent while at the same time meeting the cost of annual pay increments, which half of all NHS staff gets for extra duties and length of service.
