He said: “They have started a campaign to bring Libya to a point reached by Egypt and Tunisia.“Security forces have pre-empted this and arrested some of the people involved. A few people have died and violence against the police has escalated. We will have a new Libya, one we have dreamed of. We can have reforms without destroying our country.” He told protesters the country could descend into civil war if the violence continues, claiming swathes of the country remain loyal to his father.Thousands of protesters clashed with supporters of Gaddafi in Tripoli’s Green Square, with helicopter gunships and snipers said to have been deployed. Protesters have also taken control of military bases and tanks.At least 50 people were killed and 100 seriously wounded in the space of just a few hours last night. A further 84 people were killed on Saturday and 20 in overnight clashes, with some commentators claiming more than 300 people have died since the violence began. Saif al-Islam claimed foreign media organisations have exaggerated the numbers.Protesters in the streets of the Libyan capital were throwing stones at billboards of Colonel Gaddafi while police used tear gas to try to disperse them.The opposition is demanding a constitutional monarchy that gives citizens a greater role in a directly elected government. It also wants the release of political prisoners.Foreign secretary William Hague yesterday urged Libya to begin dialogue with anti-government protesters and implement reforms.Hague told Saif al-Islam Gaddafi that the Libyan government’s actions were unacceptable and would trigger global condemnation.Unrest also hit Yemen, Tunisia, Morocco, Oman, Kuwait, Algeria and Djibouti over the weekend.

The house in Tinos, inspired by the cavities and ledges of the rocks, emerges from the natural landscape as a man-made cave, re-creating spatial points of exposure and introversion. The entrance is found in the back of the building, through an earth crack, while different cuts in the roof allow light and air to enter the building. The water in the pool contrasts with the rocky texture of the bare concrete as a translation of the interactions between natural elements.Save this picture!© Panagiotis VoumvakisSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Panagiotis VoumvakisA single slab of concrete, planted so it appears as an extension of the landscape, covers the three building volumes in the Lap pool house and shapes the individual architectural qualities of open and closed space in the residence. The two volumes that project from the slab perpendicular to each other make up the private spaces, a bedroom and a guest house. In the same volume there is a protected semi-outdoor space that frames the view while offering shelter, at the request of the owner.Save this picture!© Panagiotis VoumvakisThe roof that is blending with the ground in one side, becomes a big cantilever in the other side, setting its appearance as a greatly innovative structural element. That way, in the middle space under the slab, the common areas are formed. Perfectly connected with the interior of the house this concrete cantilever provides with an extended semi-outdoor living space, which might be the most appealing spot during the summer period. The tense of the building is underlined by the linear volume of the pool that comes out of the slope and leads the perspective to the horizon. Save this picture!© Panagiotis VoumvakisSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Panagiotis VoumvakisThe used color palette emerges from the color of the rocks while the materiality and textures of the bare concrete enhance the blending of the building with the sight. Therefore, the scope of the project is to achieve a camouflage in the landscape while maintaining a dynamic presence itself. Embracing this idea of merging with the landforms around it, the building urges the habitant to live with absolute connection with the scenery of Tinos and with nature altogether.Save this picture!© Panagiotis VoumvakisProject gallerySee allShow lessToday is Long Cafe / Absence from IslandSelected ProjectsMuee Restaurant / MAT OfficeSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeAristides Dallas ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMies van der Rohe AwardOn FacebookTinos Regional UnitGreecePublished on February 16, 2021Cite: “The Lap Pool House / Aristides Dallas Architects” 16 Feb 2021.

A careful count of votes in the Ecuadorian elections of Feb. 19 showed that Lenin Moreno, the presidential candidate of the current governing party, Alianza Pais, came within a hair of victory on the first round, finishing way ahead of the other seven candidates.Since the election for president will now go to a second round on April 2, there remains the likelihood of active intervention by U.S. and European Union imperialism to prevent a victory by Moreno, the more progressive candidate. Imperialist meddling and subversion to support reactionary forces in Latin America have already resulted in a close electoral victory in Argentina and a parliamentary coup in Brazil. They are also maneuvering to overthrow Nicolás Maduro in Venezuela and Evo Morales in Bolivia, in addition to the Alianza Pais government in Ecuador.Rafael Correa, who has been president of Ecuador for three terms, is backing Moreno, who got 39.4 percent of the vote. Moreno ran more than 11 points ahead of banker Guillermo Lasso, the main candidate of Ecuadorian big capital and imperialism, who received 28.1 percent. The Ecuadorian neo-liberals were split, with a second pro-imperialist candidate getting about 16 percent of the vote.Moreno has paraplegia and has been a longtime advocate for people with disabilities.According to Ecuador’s election law, to win in the first round a candidate must either get more than 50 percent of the vote or receive 40 percent of the vote and be 10 percent ahead of the runner-up. So Moreno fell short by very little. In elections for the National Assembly, however, Alianza Pais won nearly 60 percent of the seats, a clear victory.While it might appear that the large margin separating Moreno from Lasso would give him an easy victory in the second round, there is no guarantee. U.S. imperialism, under Donald Trump just as under Barack Obama, is hell-bent on thwarting any moves by countries south of the border toward sovereignty and economic independence. Especially since Hugo Chavez was elected president of Venezuela in 1998, Washington has treated all progressive moves in those countries as threatening U.S. imperialism’s economic and strategic interests.Ecuadorians know that the Trump administration would like to see a White House puppet in Quito who would rip up Rafael Correa’s progressive heritage. In his three terms, Correa developed an international policy of affirmation of national sovereignty, breaking the historical submission by the Ecuadorian ruling class to the demands of Washington. This included kicking out the U.S. military base in Manta.Even if Lenin Moreno is elected, as many still expect, the new government will face major problems in an unfavorable political and economic climate.Like other countries in South America that moved in a progressive direction, Ecuador under Correa was able to use the funds it earned through high prices of raw materials in the first decade of the 21st century to pay for social programs that benefited the poorest of its residents.With the fall in prices for these commodities on world markets, it has become more difficult for progressive governments to fund these programs and maintain a stable economy, leaving them more susceptible to imperialist subversion. Of all the countries south of the U.S. border, only Cuba has carried out a socialist revolution that put the state and the economy firmly in the hands of the workers and farmers.Anti-imperialists inside the United States should oppose any U.S. interference in the Ecuadorian presidential election or its aftermath, and support the defeat of Lasso and his rich backers in Ecuador who want to grow even richer by serving world imperialism.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
