“HELL JUST FELL ON EUROPE since May 8, 2013!!
EU Gov just passed The Monsanto Propagation Law (like Federal Law it over-rules individ countries’ laws!! Now only Monsanto & DuPont & AstraZeneca & Pfizer & Bayer are Authorised growers of our plants, seeds, foods, animal fodder, trees – ALL PLANT MATERIAL!!
It’s a Terrifying Law, stating “All plants in EU are now illegal, until Registered on the Tested/Approved EU Plants List, and to be exclusively propagated by the mega-companies, who are to be sole marketers of all plants too!!! Plants must come Continue reading
Joe Sacco and I spent two years reporting from the poorest pockets of the United States for our book “Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt.” We went into our nation’s impoverished “sacrifice zones”—the first areas forced to kneel before the dictates of the marketplace—to show what happens when unfettered corporate capitalism and ceaseless economic expansion no longer have external impediments. We wanted to illustrate what unrestrained corporate exploitation does to families, communities and the natural world. We wanted to challenge the reigning ideology of globalization and laissez-faire capitalism to illustrate what life becomes when human beings and the ecosystem are ruthlessly turned into commodities to exploit until exhaustion or collapse. And we wanted to expose as impotent the formal liberal and governmental institutions that once made reform possible, institutions no longer equipped with enough authority to check the assault of corporate power.
What has taken place in these sacrifice zones—in postindustrial cities such as Camden, N.J., and Detroit, in coalfields of southern West Virginia where mining Continue reading
|Fortunately, the Swiss National Advisory Commission on Biomedical Ethics – AO says: just another
“service” used to conceal EUGENICS – (NEK, President: Otfried Höffe) critically commented on the use of the ADHD drug Ritalin in its opinion of 22 November 2011 titled Human enhancement by means of pharmacological agents: The consumption of pharmacological agents altered the child’s behavior without any contribution on his or her part.
rights, because pharmacological agents induced behavioral changes but failed to educate the child on how to achieve these behavioral changes independently. The child was thus deprived of an essential learning experience to act autonomously and emphatically which “considerably curtails children’s freedom and impairs their personality development”, the NEK criticized.
The alarmed critics of the Ritalin disaster are now getting support from an entirely different side. The German weekly Der Spiegel quoted in its cover story on 2 February 2012 the US American psychiatrist Leon Eisenberg, born in 1922 as the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, who was the “scientific father of ADHD” and who said at the age of 87, seven months before his death in his last interview: “ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease”
Since 1968, however, some 40 years, Leon Eisenberg’s “disease” haunted the diagnostic and statistical manuals, first as “hyperkinetic reaction of childhood”, now called “ADHD”. The use of ADHD medications in Germany rose in only eighteen years from 34 kg (in 1993) to a record of no less than 1760 kg (in 2011) – which is a 51-fold increase in sales! In the United States every tenth boy among ten year-olds already swallows an Continue reading

A FORMER Google executive has blown the whistle on a massive and “immoral” tax avoidance scheme that has “cheated” British taxpayers out of hundreds of millions of pounds over the past decade.
Barney Jones, 34, who worked for the internet search giant between 2002 and 2006, has lifted the lid on an elaborate structure which diverts British profits through Ireland to the Bermuda tax haven.
Although Google’s London sales staff would negotiate and sign contracts with British customers, and cash was paid into a UK bank account, deals were technically booked through its Dublin office to minimise its liabilities here. Jones, a devout Christian and father of four, is ready to hand over a cache of more than 100,000 emails and documents to HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC), detailing the “concocted scheme.”
|The chickens have been in place a week now. The second and third laid eggs on day two. So for most of the week we have been collecting three eggs a day. Three very different eggs, large, a larger medium and medium.
The chickens are very friendly and follow you around when you are out the back. Everything you have has to be tested in case it is food and they peck everything at least once, including the baby. They reside very comfortably with the rabbit but evicted hime from his own home.
They can be quite intimidating for kids as they rush up to you all pleased to see you, if you shoo them away they run away but staying still just makes them stand by you looking expectantly up for food.
If you try and catch them they run away and they can run fast but they can easily be trapped as they come Continue reading
|Freedom of the press and internet speech is now under direct threat from the government. How, why and who’s doing it – and what you can do about it – will be covered in detail at this important all day symposium event…
Date: Saturday May 18th
It is now published that the eco-fascists behind and probably in control of the the environmental NGO’s
advocate a massive reduction in the human population on our planet, and therefore it is now reasonable to believe that individual governments may be secretly planning along those lines. Having followed UK environment politics for well over 20 years now the evidence suggests that the UK has plans to reduce the population significantly, which may be significantly accelerated in the event of the meltdown of the global stock markets as part of an ” Austerity ” policy. It would appear that the starting gun has now been fired on the Green Holocaust in the form of the current UK Welfare Reform Bill and particularly with policy relating to the chronically sick and disabled, like Finnish eco-fascist activist Pentti Linkola suggests, achieve the goal to kill all ” defectives ” by stealth.
Although it in not at first apparent that the Welfare Reform Bill has anything to do with an eco-fascistinspired Green Holocaust if you examine all the evidence it becomes increasingly clear if you work on the theory that the doctors are prescribing medicine specifically for the side effects. Disability groups on the left of UK politics are far too hung up on fighting ” cuts ” and have their noses far to close to the political party grindstone to notice the more subtle trend on overall policy direction. Also most on the left are in total Continue reading
