Activists crash G4S conference, accuse security giant of profiting from Israeli human rights abuses

We were outside and inside the G4S AGM at the ExCel Centre in London, protesting against their profit from oppression, state violence and human rights abuses everywhere. Protesters who have disrupted the AGM inside have said that there are probably more protesters than genuine shareholders.
From G4S-run prisons in Israel where Palestinians are tortured and held without charge, to the killing of Jimmy Mubenga during his deportation from the UK by G4S security, to G4S-run prisons in South Africa where prisoners are tortured, to the killing of Mr Ward, an Aboriginal man in Australia who was cooked to death in a car while in the custody of G4S security: we WILL shut G4S down.

How the Red Cross Raised Half a Billion Dollars for Haiti ­and Built Six Homes

Even as the group has publicly celebrated its work, insider accounts detail a string of failures

Homes in the the Parc Tony Colin community in Bon Repos. Most of the residents of the community were moved from the Tabarre neighborhood where they lived in tents after the 2010 earthquake. Many residents are having problems with rain that leaks in through the holes made by the nails on their roofs and their walls are starting to deteriorate from water damage.The neighborhood of Campeche sprawls up a steep hillside in Haiti’s capital city, Port-au-Prince. Goats rustle in trash that goes forever uncollected. Children kick a deflated volleyball in a dusty lot below a wall with a hand-painted logo of the American Red Cross.

In late 2011, the Red Cross launched a multimillion-dollar project to transform the desperately poor area, which was hit hard by the earthquake that struck Haiti the year before. The main focus of the project — called LAMIKA, an acronym in Creole for “A Better Life in My Neighborhood” — was building hundreds of permanent homes.

Today, not one home has been built in Campeche. Many residents live in shacks made of rusty sheet metal, without access to drinkable water, electricity or basic sanitation. When it rains, their homes flood and residents bail out mud and water.

The Red Cross received an outpouring of donations after the quake, nearly half a billion dollars.

The group has publicly celebrated its work. But in fact, the Red Cross has repeatedly failed on the ground in Haiti. Confidential memos, emails from worried top officers, and accounts of a dozen frustrated and disappointed insiders show the charity has broken promises, squandered donations, and made dubious claims of success.

The Red Cross says it has provided homes to more than 130,000 people. But the actual number of permanent homes the group has built in all of Haiti: six.

WikiLeaks Strikes Again: Leaked TISA Docs Expose Corporate Plan For Reshaping Global Economy

Leaked Docs reveal that little-known corporate treaty poised to privatize and deregulate public services across globe

by Sarah Lazare

tisa.jpgAn enormous corporate-friendly treaty that many people haven’t heard of was thrust into the public limelight Wednesday when famed publisher of government and corporate secrets, WikiLeaks, released 17 documents from closed-door negotiations between countries that together comprise two-thirds of the word’s economy.

Analysts warn that preliminary review shows that the pact, known as the Trade in Services Agreement (TISA), is aimed at further privatizing and deregulating vital services, from transportation to healthcare, with a potentially devastating impact for people of the countries involved in the deal, and the world more broadly.

“This TISA text again favors privatization over public services, limits governmental action on issues ranging from safety to the environment using trade as a smokescreen to limit citizen rights,” said Larry Cohen, president of Communications Workers of America, in a statement released Wednesday.

UK: Iain Duncan Smith’s First Re-Education Centre To Open In Streatham Jobcentre

by johnny void

my-jobStreatham Jobcentre is to become the home of Iain Duncan Smith’s first Re-Education Centre where teams of gormless Jobcentre workers, psychiatrists, social workers and voluntary sector busy-bodies will team up to bully people with a mental health condition into low paid shit jobs as part of their ‘recovery’.

The South London Jobcentre already contains a Living Well Community Hub* where specialist mental health services operating alongside Jobcentre Plus staff are working together towards a common goal of improving health and well-being and helping people to get back to, or stay in, work.”  This is to be joined by a new Increased Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT) team who, along with Jobcentre staff, will attempt to fix unemployed people with Cognitive Behavior Therapy and when that doesn’t work probably just stop their benefits.

With forced psychological treatment already threatened for those claiming social security, and moves to increase information sharing powers between Jobcentres and other agencies, these new centres represent the end of mental health services that people who are poor can actually trust.  From now on only the naive or inexperienced will feel confident being open and honest with therapeutic staff knowing that a Jobcentre Work Coach is just next door waiting to sanction their benefits.  Jobcentre staff, health assessors and charities have already been weaponised against unemployed, sick or disabled people, now nurses and psychiatric workers are also to be drafted into the unceasing war on the poor.

Only Israel will miss Tony Blair: blundering war criminal appointed ‘peace envoy’

by Robert Fisk

For Arabs and Britons who lost their loved ones in his shambolic Iraq war, Blair’s appointment as ‘peace envoy’ was an insult.

blair_netanyahu_460Tony Blair’s time as Middle East envoy representing the US, Russia, the UN and the EU has finally come to an end.

Eight years after he took up the role, Blair tendered his resignation and left one question: how come a war criminal ever became a “peace envoy” in the first place?

The people of the Middle East – and much of the world – have been asking this question ever since Blair was appointed the Quartet’s man in Jerusalem, solemnly and hopelessly tasked to bring “peace” between Israelis and Palestinians.

Was his new mission supposed to wash the blood from his hands after the catastrophe of the Bush-Blair invasion of Iraq and the hundreds of thousands of innocents who died as a result?

For Arabs – and for Britons who lost their loved ones in his shambolic war in Iraq – Blair’s appointment was an insult. The man who never said he was sorry for his political disaster simply turned up in Jerusalem four years later and, with a team which spent millions in accommodation and air fares, managed to accomplish absolutely nothing in the near-decade that followed.

Blair appeared indifferent to the massive suffering of the Palestinians – he was clearly impotent in preventing it – and spent much of his time away from the tragedy of the Middle East, advising the great and the good and a clutch

Pushing You Into a Cashless Society

by Rory, The Daily Coin

Home-Health-Agencies-Paperless-Tipping-PointOne of the most effective means the elite use today to get their way and push a particular agenda is to make it “hip, swinging and very, very cool”. Another way is to simply tell you what is obsolete and “out dated”. Who wants to be “behind the times”? Certainly not someone who is looking for the next “really cool” gadget! No, this particular person wants to be on the “cutting edge” of the “next big thing”!

Enter the banking cabal and their desire to have total and absolute control of your life through your banking account and your means of transacting business.

Think my “tin foil hat” is screwed on a little tight? Well, how about this gem that was released earlier today in England

The banks are closing branches and making people use the internet for their banking. All part of the criminal banks and criminal government (as per Bilderberg plan), to make it a cashless society. Once cash is gone, the terrorism of the bankers and government will commence.

Mega Corp needs a bailout, press of button and your savings are moved to the corporation. Didn’t vote “the right way” at an election, press of button you are a non person who can’t exist without the electronic money. This is planned terrorism. WAKE UP PEOPLE.

Recorded from BBC1 HD, BBC Breakfast, 25 May 2015 [Source]

Notice how the “reporter” scowls when she mentions going to a bricks and mortar bank and how gleeful she is when discussing the use of online banking. No need for bricks and mortar, just hand over all your data, finances and business transactions to the bank and they will be happy to handled it for you!!

Researchers Are Finally Studying the Other Chemical in Pot

People have been growing and smoking marijuana for thousands of years, but it wasn’t until 1964 that anyone knew why it got you high. That year, the Israeli chemist Raphael Mechoulam isolated tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC, and went on to do groundbreaking studies on how and why marijuana affects the brain. But all along, he had his eye on another of cannabis’ chemical components, one that he had discovered a year before: cannabidiol, or CBD.

It didn’t get people high, but it seemed to have all sorts of other effects, including curbing seizures in laboratory animals and improving sleep in people with insomnia. In 1980, Mechoulam published the results of a small clinical trial showing that CBD reduced seizures in seven out of the eight epileptic patients tested, well outperforming a placebo. He expected funding for larger studies to flow in and drug companies to start calling. And then…nothing. “Nobody was interested,” he remembers.

That’s changing now. As more and more states legalize medical and even recreational pot, CBD is coming under research scrutiny again. The general hypothesis is that CBD is responsible for many of marijuana’s therapeutic benefits but none of its downsides—like, you know, getting high. (For many patients using marijuana to treat symptoms like pain and nausea, the altered state of consciousness THC induces is an unwanted side effect.) Some states, including Alabama and Florida, have even legalized CBD for medical use while keeping THC illegal.

Former US Marine Demands GMO Ban After Curing Health Problems By Going Organic

by Amanda Froelich

gmoAs the great GMO debate rages on, more and more stories are beginning to surface from individuals who have experienced personal success by eliminating genetically modified foods from their diet.

One such tale comes from a former active Marine, Jon Abrahamson, who recently sent a letter to Monsanto CEO Hugh Grant telling him all about the clearing of his ‘mysterious’ illnesses after removing genetically modified foods from his diet.

As you can imagine, big Pharma companies and many doctors doubt Abrahamson’s claims, but the former active Marine knows better.

In his letter, Jon recalls how he suddenly began to develop nerve problems and numbness in his hands and legs, a degenerative process that left him almost completely incapacitated.

Like many who doubt their diet affects the state of their overall well-being, Abrahamson didn’t know what was causing his symptoms, or his rapid weight gain despite no major changes to what he was eating and drinking.

But fed up and inspired to find the cause of his concerns, Jon investigated the situation further and eventually came to the realization that it was genetically modified organisms (GMOs) contributing to the debilitating symptoms he was experiencing.

The Monsanto – Autism – Parasite Connection

by Dr. Matthew Buckley, PSc.D., Guest | Waking Times

ParasiteIf you were to do research into alternative therapies that appear to be providing clear results to the autistic community, you’d be hard pressed to find anything as impressive as the results that people are finding in using a protocol that Kerri Rivera has put together. Kerri Rivera is the author of “Healing the Symptoms Known As Autism”, and the mother of an autistic son. A core component to her protocol, which has reportedly documented over 160 outright cures of autism in the last 3 years, is an extensive protocol for dealing with parasites. I encourage anybody interested in autism to read her book and take note of the results she has documented.

In a previous blog post, I discussed the problem that parasites represent to those of us dealing with the conventional health model. When you realize that the established gold standard triple stool sample test for parasitic diagnostics fails to identify parasites better than 60% of the time, even when the parasites are known to be in the intestines, you can begin to see what a problem this creates for properly addressing the health of people dealing with a chronic health complaint(1). This means that at least 40% of the people dealing with a parasitic infection will not be properly treated, but will almost certainly be given SOME diagnosis and SOME treatment for their health complaint that will almost certainly be completely off the mark. Keep in mind that many parasitic infections don’t spend much time in the intestines to be identified, and that blood tests for parasitic diagnosis are also very poor.

How does Monsanto play into this?

If you’re looking into the problem of parasites, it makes sense to look at how our bodies defend themselves to parasitic infections, and therefore it is logical to examine possible disruptions to how well somebody may be able to make the heme based enzyme’s called “Eosinophil Peroxidase” and “Myeloperoxidase” which are known to play key roles in the defense of parasitic as well as other infections.(2)(3)(4)(5)(6)(7)

Danish Authority Labels Monsanto’s Glyphosate A Human Carcinogen

pesticides-roundup

At rapid pace companies, countries, and educated consumers are choosing to turn their backs on glyphosate and the toxic herbicide (in which it is the main ingredient), RoundUp. No doubt the World Health Organization’s (WHO) declaration that glyphosate is “probably carcinogenic” has caused the biotech giant to experience massive profit losses, but according to many sources, it should be shelved for good reason!

Not only has glyphosate been linked with birth defects and neurological issues, some studies even deem it to be cancerous!

And this Danish professor agrees. Philippe Grandjean, professor of environmental medicine at the University of Southern Denmark, commented:

“We know that glyphosate causes cancer in other mammals, but it has not been demonstrated in humans. This is because the effects have not been investigated thoroughly enough in people yet. But when we see that other mammals get cancer from glyphosate, we must assume that people who are exposed to the substance can also develop cancer.”

According to the report which recently made headlines in the Danish news outlet Nyhederne, the Danish Working Environment Authority (WEA) has declared glyphosate a carcinogen. In effect of this classification, they have recommended a change to less toxic chemicals.

In addition, Professor Grandjea is urging Danish gardeners to stop using Roundup on their flowers, vegetables, and herbs immediately.

European boycott of Israeli Defence Exhibition impacts army and police

Israeli Defence Exhibition (ISDEF)Israeli Defence Exhibition (ISDEF)

Israeli security sources have said that the French, British, German and Scandinavian boycotts of the Israeli Defence Exhibition (ISDEF) affect the Israeli army. They also stated that the boycott did not come as a surprise and that the exhibition was not a failure.

France, Britain, Germany and some Scandinavian countries prohibited their security companies from participating in the exhibition in which 20 countries exhibited their products.

According to today’s issue of Maariv newspaper, the exhibition was attended by about 4,000 people on its first day yesterday, including military leaders and ministers from Europe and East Asia.

A security source said that the “charade is well-known”, adding that Israel is aware that a number of countries claim to have good relations with it but do not give permission for their companies to go to the exhibition.

The source added that the boycott is noticeably harming and impacting the capabilities of the Israeli army and police to comprehensively study the products being used in the security sector around the world.

The French telecommunications group Orange plans to end its cooperation with Israeli operator Partner Communications Company over the latter’s illegal activities in the Palestinian territories.

“Our intention is to withdraw from Israel. It will take time… [but] for sure we will do it,” said Stéphane Richard, the chief executive and chairman of the worldwide mobile phone network, on Wednesday.

“I am ready to do this tomorrow morning… but without exposing Orange to huge risks,” he added.

Back in May, rights groups urged Orange’s officials to denounce “attacks on human rights” and take action against the Israeli firm which is working under a license of the French company.

Swiss Supermarkets Stop Sales of Glyphosate over Health Concerns

Swiss supermarket giants Coop and Migros have announced that they will no longer sell products that contain glyphosate, following the World Health Organization’s report stating that glyphosate is a probable human carcinogen. They have also announced that they will be exploring non-toxic alternative weed-killers.

coop

Coop stated last week that “Even if the (Swiss) Federal Office for Agriculture (BLW) judges glyphosate can be continued to be sold without a health hazard for the population, we decided on Monday 18th May to no longer sell any glyphosate-based products in Coop supermarkets and Coop Building & Hobby hardware stores.” It is a preventive measure. “…we don’t sell the concentrate, but only a very diluted form, the ready-made products. These concentrations are up to 48 times lower than the range used in agricultural products.”

Switzerland’s largest retail company Migros will also stop selling products containing glyphosate. A Migros spokesperson said that they would begin as early as this week to remove the products from their shelves.

Coop’s and Migros’s decisions followed German giant retailer REWE Group’s decision, announced in early May, to remove glyphosate herbicides from the shelves of their 350 ‘toom Baumarkt DIY’ starting in September.

Florida Court Rules ”Off Grid” Living Illegal

By Joshua Krause

solar-panels-wikimediaRobin Speronis had been living in an off-grid home for many years without incident, until she was interviewed by a local FOX affiliate in November of 2013. Shortly thereafter, the city of Cape Coral tagged a “notice to vacate” on her property, due to multiple code violations, all of which stem from the fact that her home isn’t connected to water, sewage, or the electrical grid.

The city has tried to argue that she is in violation of the International Property Maintenance Code for relying on rainwater and solar panels, instead of utilities.

Since that time, Speronis has been fighting the courts for her right live off the grid. Magistrate Harold Eskins recently ruled that she can live without using water or electricity, but she still has to be connected to these utilities no matter what.

Despite his ruling, Eskins admitted to the press that the code may be unfair, “Reasonableness and code requirements don’t always go hand-in-hand.” Despite his supposed sympathies, he still feels compelled to enforce the code.

The Queen Owns Every Dolphin In Britain… And Other Royal Atrocities

queen

by John Vibes

The Business Insider published an interesting report this week highlighting some of the strange powers that Queen Elizabeth II has, although the royal family is presented as a purely ceremonial elite with no actual political power.

Among many strange powers, the report revealed that the queen owns “all unmarked swans in open water” as well as all the sturgeons, whales, and dolphins. These ordinances bear a grim similarity to how the Sherif of Nottingham owned all of the deer in Nottingham Forrest in the ancient tale of Robin Hood.

According to an article in Time, although this statute dates back to 1324 it “is still valid today, and sturgeons, porpoises, whales, and dolphins are recognised as ‘fishes royal’: when they are captured within 3 miles (about 5 km) of UK shores or wash ashore, they may be claimed on behalf of the Crown. Generally, when brought into port, a sturgeon is sold in the usual way, and the purchaser, as a gesture of loyalty, requests the honour of its being accepted by Elizabeth.”

Hundreds of years ago, the royalty of Great Britain were hell bent on world domination, like many other European nations at the time. After centuries of violence and conquest the British royalty were able to dominate most of the world through political and military force. It was said that “the sun never set on the British Empire” because there were so many areas throughout the world which the British had colonized that it was always daytime somewhere in an occupied territory of Britain. Even today the Queen of England’s real estate takes up 1/6 of the earth’s surface! That’s one family owning more than a quarter of all the land in the world while 85% of the human race owns no land at all! This is not what humanity is about, something is horribly wrong with this situation. The royal family may have the lion’s share of land to their name, but other elite families also have a large wealth of stolen property as well, which they have acquired through generations of conquest and protected using their phony environmental organizations.

Anti-Zionist protesters block Israel Day parade in New York City

bczion

Anti-Israeli protesters have blocked the way of pro-Israel participants on the annual Israel Day Parade in New York, chanting slogans and calling for the dismantlement of the Zionist regime.

The protest took place when pro-Israeli marchers were parading down Fifth Avenue to celebrate the annual ceremony on Sunday.

Orthodox Jews, who do not believe in the existence of Tel Aviv regime, blocked their way despite tight police security for the parade.

The parade that has annually been held in New York since 1964, was met by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Mayor Bill de Blasio and members of New York’s Congressional delegation as well as those of the Israeli parliament, the Knesset.

Human rights monitor Amnesty International said earlier this year that the Israeli regime committed war crimes during the latest war on the besieged Gaza Strip.

Over 2,140 Palestinians, including a large number of women, children, and the elderly, were killed in the 50 days of the Israeli onslaught on Gaza, which began early in July 2014.

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier (C) looks on during a press conference at the sea port in Gaza City

German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has called for the removal of Israel’s eight-year-long blockade on the Gaza Strip.

More action to rebuild and improve Gaza’s troubled economy “requires the opening of crossing points,” said Steinmeier during a rare visit to Gaza on Monday.

Removing the blockade will also decrease the risk of renewed escalation in the region, he noted.

“The troubled situation in Gaza demands of us to think about concrete steps to improve daily life there — without which, I am afraid, the situation is escalating,” he added.

Organic Hierarchy – And Dark Side Deception

as_above_so_belowby Julian Rose

‘In order to fully understand why the Illuminati master plan is so effective, we must first recognise that it is modeled upon the divine master plan…aping the divine evolutionary blue print. And in doing this – it provides an almost perfect false-alibi to the population of the planet.’

According to the wisdom ‘As Above – So Below’ we can ascertain that a common principle and order apply to both the workings of this planet and to the cosmos. If so, we can surmise that, in their innocent forms, both work to a common – and essentially hierarchical principle.

Do we accept the existence of such an order? Or is it so tainted here on Earth that the very word ‘hierarchy’ automatically raises the hackles of controversy?

I would suggest that it is not a question of ostracising hierarchy per se – but of exploring whether a ‘natural hierarchical principle’ emerges on Earth, as an organic expression of ‘as above so below.’

From the Earthly perspective, gaining a foothold on the cosmic ladder requires a degree of conscious awareness. This becomes a more decisive factor when determining the qualities that are required to attain, for example, the status of ‘a true teacher’.

That same status might also indicate having the wisdom and ability ‘to govern’. If so, we are starting to recognise what might be the critical foundation stones of a society which could ultimately replace the quasi-democratic mess we live in today.

There are no doubt many levels that make up the moving stairway to full conscious awareness; thus many roles to fill on the journey of aspiration towards the Supreme. A society which embraces this form of aspirational governance will offer countless rungs of ‘employment’ for its people, each reflecting and drawing-out, the actual talents and creative abilities each individual possesses.

Here we move far beyond the modern day pseudo-democratic experiment in which individual aspiration is honoured to the degree that it devotes itself to the acquisition of wealth, prestige and a well-honed ability ‘to play the game’. A game which the status quo has set-up in order to maintain its entirely false hierarchical ambitions.

However, the idea of establishing a hierarchy here on Earth is likely to have its origins in an attempt to mirror the universal model. That is why the wisdom of the phrase ‘as above so below’ carries such a particular significance.

Fabrication in BBC Panorama ‘Saving Syria’s Children’ – BBC: “no reason why” audience should be told footage was changed; BBC News “under no obligation” to reveal source of substituted images

Subject: RE: ECU Email (26 May)
Date: Mon, 1 Jun 2015 08:53:22 +0000

Dear Mr Tregear

Thank you for your response of 26 May 2015 (attached).

You state:

“The other issues you have mentioned do not raise a potential breach of the BBC’s editorial standards”.

Please could you clarify which issues you are referring to and where I have mentioned them?

I attach my stage 1b complaint letter of 5 November 2014 and my initial complaint of 10 September 2014 (submitted via the BBC Complaints webform). These represent my only substantive communication with the BBC on this subject to date and both were solely concerned with the breach of BBC editorial guidelines represented by the substitution of footage between the 29 August 2014 Newsnight and the 30 August 2014 BBC News Channel broadcast ‘Syria Vote: One Year On’.

You continue:

“You have been given an explanation as to why the footage was changed; there is no reason why the audience should be made aware that any such editing has taken place; and BBC News is under no obligation to tell you the source of the substituted images which were broadcast.”

I find these remarks astonishing.

Thank you for your offer of advice re: lodging a complaint over the delay in responding to my stage 1b complaint, which I accept.

I shall write to you again by 16 June.

Yours sincerely,

Robert Stuart
