VIDEO: Indigenous activist 'Splitting the Sky' versus war criminal Bush

15-03-2010 12:19

former US congresswoman Cynthia McKinney
The Splitting the Sky story highlights the media cover up of the lies and crimes of 9/11. But that is only the beginning. STS's story starts with the big cover up of the reality that the New World Order of America began in 1492 with a massive genocide that continues to this day.

The founding of America on the theft of natural resources from Indigenous peoples around the world extends these days to the creation of new forms of appropriation, domination, murder and enslavement.

PETA use sexist advertising

15-03-2010 08:21

As abolitionist vegans and feminists, we oppose the use of sexist tactics in the animal advocacy movement. Ethical animal rights veganism is part of the logical conclusion of opposition to the exploitation of all sentient beings — both human animals and non-human animals. Opposing speciesism is incompatible with engaging in sexism or any other form of discrimination, such as racism, heterosexism, classism, and other forms of oppression.

GMO War Starts

GM crops

Not just a spud, this is likely to prove a very hot political potato indeed. It is living, knobbly proof of the determination of Brussels bureaucrats to spread GM crops throughout Europe, against the will of most of its people.

In a little-noticed move last week, the European Commission defied most of the governments to which it is supposed to answer to give the green light to growing a modified potato across the continent. It was the first time a GM crop had been authorised for cultivation in 13 years. But, now the long moratorium has been broken, similar approvals for others are expected rapidly to follow.

“I left my country in 2003. I come over here and apply for asylum. And I left my daughter behind. She was three years old. I couldn't come with her and since then I don't know where is her whereabouts. I've tried through the Red Cross but haven't been successful. So I always live in fear of not knowing where she is.”

Guardian: Undercover policeman reveals how he d UK's violent activists

14-03-2010 11:13

Useful for those who want/need to know. Funny how these violent activists are not contrasted with the police, which the video links to the deaths of at least 3 people. His 'chilling account' is hardly chilling - he got involved in a few demonstrations that turned violent. Nothing that chilling. Still, the Guardian has a history of writing pro-police rubbish. Worth watching though, and it sounds like the undercover spy's voice can quite easily altered to reveal the original voice should anyone have any questions about who he is....

Holocaust Museum For Persecuted Heretics?

13-03-2010 21:48

Verily, if the origin of the word ‘holocaust’ meant ‘whole’ + ‘burning’ then surely the history of the persecution and killing of pagans and various heretical sects would qualify to this nomenclature? After all, how many supposed witches, were tortured and/or burned over the centuries? How many believers in the ‘wrong’ religions or denominations, according to those fanatics who thought themselves within ‘thee’ singularly right religion, were persecuted and murdered? We don’t know any kind of exact number but it is a frightening reality to behold nevertheless.
