‘News outlets are officially reporting that the ‘No’ side has won a decisive victory in Greece, rejecting a bailout offer from foreign creditors that would have imposed further austerity and economic hardship.

Reuters reports that government officials “immediately said they would try to restart talks with European partners,” perhaps as soon as Sunday night.

‘”The people of Greece have stood up to the bully boys of the Troika and the violent imposition of their neoliberal policies,” said Global Justice Now’s Nick Dearden in a statement responding to the early results. “Our deeply unequal global economy relies on ordinary people having no real voice over economic decisions, so this ‘no’ vote strengthens the battle for a fairer, more humane, people-centred Europe.”‘

‘Yanis Varoufakis has announced he is standing down despite Greece’s No vote in the referendum on proposed austerity measures.

In a blog post entitled “Minister No More”, published on Monday morning, the Greek finance minister said he was standing down because of pressure from Greece’s European partners.’

‘In a written enquiry he submitted to the Italian Foreign Minister Paolo Gentiloni, Di Stefano said Syria has been facing a proxy war since 2011 by terrorists coming from 89 countries who have fomented widespread chaos and swelled the ranks of terrorist organizations, citing ISIS and al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra amid documented evidence of logistical, financial and media support they receive from certain countries.

The Italian lawmaker said the Turkish intelligence is involved in facilitating cross-border infiltration of terrorists into Syria and aiding sales of oil that ISIS has stolen from Syria and Iraq for generating revenues.

Jordan, he added, plays a similar role by facilitating the entry of terrorists to Syria as Israel is treating terrorists who have been injured during battles with the Syrian army in its hospitals.’

‘The Turkish military has called on all troop commanders stationed along its border with Syria to be present at a meeting aimed at discussing a possible intervention in the crisis-hit country.

The meeting was called by Land Forces Commander General Hulusi Akar and 2nd Army Commander General Adem Huduti following a last week visit to the border region, the Turkish newspaper Hürriyet Daily reported on Sunday.

The meeting is set to take place in the capital city Ankara next week.’

‘Saudi warplanes have continued pounding areas across Yemen, killing scores of people amid reports of a dire humanitarian situation in the impoverished Arab country.

According to media outlets on Sunday, at least 43 people were killed and 70 others were injured in the Saudi air raids on a market in the northwestern province of Hajjah on Saturday night.

Separately, Saudi warplanes bombed a munitions factory in the district of Saqayn in the Yemeni province of Sa’ada on Saturday, killing at least 23 people. They also targeted the area of Haydhan in the province, killing a woman and a child. A mosque was also bombed in Sa’ada.’

‘UK Prime Minister David Cameron is not only in complete denial about his role in facilitating the rise of ISIS, but his “response” to last Friday’s attacks will facilitate it even further.

Last week’s attacks by Islamic State (formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Al-Qaeda killed almost 300 people across six countries: Syria (145), Somalia (over 50), Tunisia (37), Kuwait (30), China (18) and France (1). Another 70 were killed in Egypt earlier this week.

That ISIS is now in a position to launch such coordinated attacks is a direct consequence of the policies pursued by Cameron and his predecessors in Syria, in Iraq, in Somalia, and most of all in Libya. Unsurprisingly, his article in The Telegraph the following Monday reflected on none of this. Instead, he suggested a series of measures that will boost their capacity even further.’

‘More than seven million children will be hit by the proposed cuts to tax credits to be announced in George Osborne’s post-election Budget on Wednesday, the Government’s advisers on child poverty have warned.

A new analysis by the Social Mobility and Child Poverty Commission found that any cut in tax credits would reduce the incomes of 45 per cent of working families. The vast majority – 72 per cent – of the losers earn less than £20,000 a year. Only 7 per cent of them have earnings of more than £30,000 a year.

Two thirds (4.9 million) of the 7.5 million families with children affected have someone in work, while 2.6 million are in workless households relying on state benefits. The figures will fuel criticism that the move will hit the “hard-working families” which the Conservatives champion.’

‘Viewers could be charged for tuning to BBC programmes on its iPlayer and other online catch-up services to compensate for a £650m a year cut in government funding.

George Osborne confirmed that he has asked the BBC to foot the £650m bill for free television licences for the over-75s to make a “contribution” to balancing the nation’s books. The plan, revealed by The Independent last month, is expected to be phased in from 2017.

The Chancellor hopes to strike a deal with BBC bosses under which they would be allowed to charge for digital services, which could raise at least £150m. It is unclear how the charges would be levied. The £650m cut represents about a fifth of the BBC’s £3.7bn income from the licence fee.’
