Five answers to the Questions that you all have about Aleppo

Translated from Italian via Google Translate from VICE

Try to portray the situation in Aleppo is a difficult task for two different sets of problems.

The first is that the battle for the key cities of Syria in the war has been going on for four years or four years, during which fronts the belligerents, the fate of the civilian population have undergone radical changes and conflicts of a different kind (and more and more dramatic).

The second is that as I write is at work a propaganda war that, in the near absence of independent sources, performs admirably in its main task: misinform. The eastern part of Aleppo, where anti-regime fighters are allocated and where they lived hundreds of thousands of people, was bombed indiscriminately for these four years. The cost of which in recent months has become a real siege is very high in terms of human lives, especially of defenseless civilians. The propaganda of the regime of Bashar al-Asad called this thing a “liberation” and defines victims as “terrorists.”

Following some time what is happening in Syria and in the surrounding area, I tried to answer the questions that everyone, seeing scroll through the news of the last hours on Facebook, may have made on the situation.

WHAT IS GOING TO ALEPPO?

The siege, which resulted in the closure of all supply routes for the people of eastern Aleppo, is ending with the “victory” of the loyalist troops, assisted on the field by the Lebanese Hezbollah and the Iranians and the Russians in the heavens. There remain pockets of armed resistance, areas where the Russian bombings are continuing to hit and where it still remains trapped part of the civilian population, they speak of a hundred thousand people.

In recent days several sources describe mass executions of civilians and several episodes of looting, as well as sniper attacks on convoys prepared for evacuation. Other local sources report that several women have killed themselves to avoid rape.

In this context, in which several Western governments and international bodies such as the UN call for a ceasefire to allow civilians to true salvation, we are witnessing a gruesome propaganda ballet.

The hypothetical “ceasefire”, achieved through fragile agreements (in the latter case between Russia and Turkey), are revealed staged (the number of evacuated people is very low and we do not know where these people cramming) whose end it is mainly to “show the world” a willingness to save lives which, however, seems to be no. Those who, for one reason or another, remain in Aleppo east will be treated as a fighter-thus, in the terminology of the regime, a terrorist.

A humanitarian corridor, to be effective, should be put in the role of parties involved in the conflict, can not be handled by one of them: different sources in fact record the fear on the part of many civilians from falling into the hands of the loyalists who can at will decide on their fate. And the fear is understandable, given the bombing mode above.

The other fear, once “cleaned” Aleppo east from every human being, is that the original inhabitants of that part of the city may never return, that the demographic composition of the city is completely rewritten. Elsewhere, for example in one of the many “martyr cities” of Syria in recent years as Homs, the regime has burned the records of the land registry and already in 2013 the Guardian spoke, using a certain overused term, “ethnic cleansing.”

HOW WE ARRIVED AT THIS POINT?

The dynamics of the battle of Aleppo is very complex and has experienced several phases during which its outcome appeared uncertain. Aleppo was the economic capital of Syria. The protest movement against the regime of Bashar al-Assad in the city, as elsewhere repressed in blood, began to make their voices heard in relative lagging behind other areas of the country (the first meager events are held at the end of April 2011, a month and a half after the start of the protests). However, it was expressed with great force, especially in the outlying areas and overcrowded city, in the wake of the strong protests that were recorded in rural areas of the province aleppina.

The “battle for Aleppo” began in July 2012 as part of a broad offensive Free Syrian Army called “Damascus volcano and earthquakes of Syria”. The rebel forces (see below for an explanation of the composition) established themselves in a wide part of the city without ever reach its heart. After the first few months of clashes, during which (we are in October 2012), also the historical center of the city suffered extensive damage, the positions of the loyalists and the rebels-with the Kurdish district that remains “neutral” -rimangono for a long time unchanged .

The clash, in the early days of combat, stabilizes on the east (rebels)-west (government) and becomes war of position. The regime is preparing a long-term strategy which is to indiscriminate bombing of areas controlled by the rebellion, with tragic consequences for the civilian population and infrastructure. From their positions the rebels return fire from the ground. Being strategically important in the broader context of the war, the battle of Aleppo have focused many of the economic and logistical efforts of all the geopolitical actors involved in the conflict.

Initially little connotations from the religious point of view, the armed rebel groups have experienced different processes of radicalization, also due to the origin of their funding (mainly Turkey, UAE, Saudi Arabia and Qatar). Today, they count in their ranks even some jihadist groups and the initials Syrian qaidista (Jabhat al-Nusra Front, today Jabhat al-fatih al-Sham). The Islamic State group, founded in April of 2013 with the name of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), is absent (at the time was expelled from the area of Aleppo controlled by the rebels, as well as in the governorate of Idlib) .

The ranks of loyalists fight over the government army soldiers, irregular loyalist troops, the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah, Iran with different formations and Russia (mainly with aviation). A turning point in the battle for Aleppo was recorded after the official entry in the Russian war, starting in September 2015. Although officially the purpose of the Russians was to defeat the Islamic State group, the Russian operations were concentrated almost all ( except the most “famous” is the city of Palmira, now back in the hands of the Islamic State) on those “rebels” areas of the country where resist armed formations do not belong to that organization, areas of geostrategic interest to the regime in Damascus and where logistical and military aid of enemy regional powers (Turkey, Gulf countries) concentrated.

Aleppo is the focus of this strategy and the real reason why today the loyalists managed to conquer it is nell’avvenuto rapprochement between Putin and Erdogan took place on the basis of common economic interests. Turkey has stopped providing aid to fighters in Aleppo, concentrating on the border which is located north of the city, an area that used to Ankara to limit the advance of Syrian Kurds of YPG which, thanks to ‘ American assistance provided to them in anti-Islamic state key, sought to join the predominantly Kurdish territories in northern Syria.

WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SCENARIOS?

The battle for Aleppo is ending in the tragic form that we know. From a military and strategic point of view this is an important victory for the loyalists, but it does not mean the end of the war nor appeasement of Aleppo. Certainly the event inaugurates a new phase, with the rebellion to the increasingly confined regime terriorialmente in Idlib province and territory control by the regime-that you will face, probably for a long time, in hotbeds of revolt and of a incremented episodes terrorist-decidedly weak.

Syria is now crossed by antagonisms that seem impossible to reconcile, whose fates are increasingly linked to the decisions, actions, funding of external actors. Waiting to see what will be the attitude of America Trump we have witnessed the aforementioned rapprochement of Turkey and Russia, which share the areas of influence in the north.

And we know that a successful outcome of the other great battle going on, that of Mosul in Iraq, inevitably make the folding of the fighters of the Islamic State in Syria, where he is currently the only ones to fight with that organization’s actual results are the Kurds of YPG that drive the “Syrian Democratic Forces”, incurred (for how much longer?) from Washington. Meanwhile in the south of the country the bowls seem firm, with the forces of the “Front South” supported by the Americans and Jordanians, kept in “pause” for months.

CHANNELS THAT CAN FOLLOW TO BE INFORMED?

From time Western journalists do not have access to the war if not, by the regime, with strong limitations (such as to “propaganda” their work). Generally all sources must seriously be put under consideration, being in place, as I said, a propaganda war.

The local independent sources on the ground have now minimized. Among the most reliable is the Aleppo Media Center.

Medical sources have almost disappeared. The “Syrian Civil Defence” (which the site collects donations) said recently about not being able to reach different areas affected by the bombings. Other “lighthouse” on the east of Aleppo, but no journalists in the field, is ANA press.

A journalist who has long provided reliable reporting on the situation in Aleppo is Rami Jarrah,  now living in Turkey.

THERE IS SOMETHING CONCRETE THAT I CAN DO?

Difficult to operate in some form to give practical help. Since the question eminently “political” in this “handbook” in English is encouraged first of all to put pressure on national politicians and the international organizations to raise the issue of responsibility and humanitarian aid.

In several European cities and in Turkey these days is manifested mainly in front of the Russian embassy, demanding an end to the bombing and the opening of humanitarian corridors true. Others invited to call the respective embassies.

Genocide by every race on the planet, but no, let’s only call for the deaths of Jews *rolls eyes* and post all over FACEBOOK “ISRAEL MUST BE WIPED OFF THE MAP”

Click on This Link For Human Rights Abuse in YOUR AREA OF THE WORLD. SHOULD WE WIPE YOUR AREA OF THE WORLD OFF THE PLANET TOO? http://www.amnestyusa.org/pdfs/AIR15_English.PDF
German starvation of Namibian tribes 1904-7- estimates range 30-80% of Herero and Namaqua tribes [1]

Irish Potato Famine 1845-53- many consider it a “genocide” caused by the British. 4-6,000,000, more than half of Ireland’s population starved and emigrated [2].

Armenian “Genocide” by Ottoman Empire 1916-23- Turkey officially denies it (as does Azerbaijan), Armenians claim expulsion and murder of 1-2,000,000. Almost half of the Armenian race in Asia sent into diaspora. Calculations difficult due to uncertainty of how many died due to famine, infirmity, or direct murder.

“Genocide” against Greek by Ottoman Empire 1916-23- Turkey denies it, Greece, Cyprus, and the Swedish Parliament (Riksdag) claim as many as several hundred thousand killed and label it a “genocide” [3].

Starvation of Ukrainians during Soviet collectivization- Russians deny it, Ukrainians claim from 3-20,000,000.

Soviet starvation of Kazakhs, Cossacks, Chechens, & Tatars- during collectivization, as many as 40% of the entire Kazakh population died by 1940 [4], and 25-50% of the Chechen Ingush populations died due to malnourishment. Over half of all Tatars starved to death [5].

Jewish Holocaust (Shoah)- including both systematic death camp killings and intense ethnic cleansings by Germans, Lithuanians, Estonians, Latvians, Austrians, Ukrainians, Poles, Croats, Bosniaks, Vichy France, Hungarians, and Romanians, the most corroborated total is at least 5,500,000. Over 1,000,000 killed through forced labour and gassing at Auschwitz-Birkenau alone, with at least 2 million shot by the Einsatzgruppen and local volunteers on the Eastern Front. By most counts the single most organised and extensive case of genocide in modern history.

German genocide in Poland- many consider the Nazi General Government’s rule in Poland during from 1939-1945, and the death of ~10-20% of Poland’s population, to be “genocide”.

Ethnic cleansing of Hungarians by Czechoslovakia- numbers vary. Between 25 and 150,000 civilians expelled from Slovakia to Hungary at the same time as 3,000,000 Germans were expelled. Unknown death tolls.

Ethnic cleansing of Slovaks by Hungary- numbers vary. Anywhere from 15-75,000 Slovaks expelled in a population exchange with Czechoslovakia, while anywhere from 25 to 150,000 Hungarians were expelled to Hungary. Most scholars agree that the removal of Hungarians was compulsory (an ethnic cleansing), while the removal of Slovaks was largely voluntary.

Galician Ukrainians and Poles from 1920-1945- estimates vary. Mostly considered inter-ethnic fighting, but others have emphasized the ethnicity-based violence as a “genocide.” Ranges from 10 to even 80,000 [6].

Bulgarian “genocide” of Greeks, Jews, & Serbs in Macedonia- so far unrecognized and disputed. Axis Bulgaria rounded up over 10,000 Jews and forced them into makeshift concentration camps, with uncertain deaths [7].

Croatian Nazi “genocide” against Serbs, Gypsies, & Jews- over 70,000 Jews, Gypsies, Communists, and Serbs killed in concentration camps by Croats in Jasenovac alone [8]. Total number killed by Croatia may be 1 million.

Soviet-German transfers of Baltic Germans- ~150,000 forcibly relocated by the Molotov-Ribbentrop agreement between Hitler and Stalin in 1939. German civilians targeted after Soviet conquest of the Baltic for deportation, massacre, and expulsion (see our essay for sources). Relatively few deaths but a complete removal, so more appropriately called an ethnic cleansing.

Soviet deportation of all German civilians in USSR- nearly all of 1,084,828 expelled, over 300,000 may have died during the expulsions, or 30% total (see our essay for sources). Relatively few deaths but a complete removal, so more appropriately called an ethnic cleansing.

Soviet deportation of all Volga Germans- over 400,000 expelled, half may have died (see our essay for sources). Relatively few deaths but a complete removal, so more appropriately called an ethnic cleansing.

Polish and Soviet forced march of Germans- over 5,000,000 Germans expelled, with a debated number dying in transit from starvation, hypothermia, disease, and murder (see our essay for sources). The largest death toll among expelled German populations, although debates rage as to whether Poles or occupying Soviet troops are to blame.

Yugoslav imprisonment of Germans & Croats- at least 200,000 (the entire German population) gaoled, executed, or displaced, and subjected to forced labour in what many scholars call ‘concentration camps’ (see our essay for sources). Compared to other campaigns against Germans, an unusually high death rate. However, the Yugoslav Germans are unique because they were not murdered en masse, nor expelled at all, but imprisoned for several years (with a very high death rate) until most voluntarily emigrated or were expelled.

Czechoslovak forced march of Germans and Hungarians- over 3,000,000 expelled and displaced. As many as 100,000 may have starved to death or were executed (see our essay for sources). Relatively few deaths but a complete removal, so more appropriately called an ethnic cleansing.

Expulsion of Hungary’s Germans- over 100,000 directly expelled, 300,000 displaced, 88% loss (see our essay for sources). Relatively few deaths but a complete removal, so more appropriately called an ethnic cleansing.

Deportation of Romania’s Germans- 200,000 displaced by Hitler’s population transfer, 75,000 deported for forced labour by Soviet Union (at least 15% dead), over 300,000 lost through relegated mass emigration (see our essay for sources). Relatively few deaths but a complete removal, so more appropriately called an ethnic cleansing. However, this term is largely inappropriate because most emigration was “voluntary,” albeit under severe cultural discrimination.

Australian whites against Aboriginals- controversial. Some consider it only relocation/resettlement. Others describe the intentional murder and movement of 10-50,000 natives [9]. Primarily from disease, most of the indigenous population died out within 100 years. The native population of Tasmania largely ceased to exist by 1900.

India-Pakistan Bangladesh Conflict 1947-71- some consider the movement of millions of Muslims from India to West and East Pakistan (Bangladesh) to be a forced march and a “genocide”. During the Bengali independence war between Pakistan and India, Muslims, Hindus, Pakistanis, and Bengalis engaged in mutual wars for independence. R. J. Rummel cites millions [10]. As much of the emigration was voluntary (albeit under immense pressure and discrimination), it is difficult to label this as ethnic cleansing. This is further complicated by the fact that over 100,000,000 Muslims remain in India and tens of thousands of Hindus in Pakistan, therefore indicating that neither India nor Pakistan intended to remove (or eradicate) the entire Muslim or Hindu populations, respectively.

Rwanda/Burundi “genocide” between Hutus & Tutsis- estimates range drastically from 500,000-1,000,000. Compared with other possible genocides, the violent campaigns organised by the Hutus may be one of the most authentic cases of “genocide” of the twentieth century. The Hutu Power movement, particularly the Interhamwe militias, directly advocated the extinction of all Tutsis in the style of a “genocide”, including through in some cases the systematic rape and spread of HIV/AIDS to eradicate the Tutsi populations and mixed families.

Cambodian Killing Fields- controversial. While nearly 30% of the Cambodian population died during Khmer Rouge rule in the 1970s under Pol Pot (Saloth Sar), much of the death rate can be blamed on mismanagement, corruption, and abuse of power. Despite the large death toll, the term “genocide” may be inappropriate since it is technically impossible to commit “genocide” against one’s own ethnic group. However, the regime disproportionately targeted ethnic Cham and Vietnamese communities in the country, which raises questions that “genocide” may have been carried out not against Cambodians, but ethnic minorities.

“”Genocide”” of Azeris by Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh- highly controversial. Turks and Azeris emphasize that Armenians deserve no restitution for the Armenian “genocide” from Turkey because of their murder of as many as ten thousand Turkic Muslims in Azerbaijan [11]. Armenians claim the opposite, insisting that it is a civil war.

Assyrian “Genocide” by Ottoman Turks- like the Armenians, anywhere from 200,000-600,000 Assyrian Christians in contemporary Iraq, Syria, and Turkey may have been killed along with the Armenians in the final days of the Ottoman Empire during World War II. Unlike the Armenian case, the Assyrian “genocide” has gathered relatively little recognition.

Hindu “genocide” of Buddhists in Sri Lanka after 1970- as many as 70-100,000 civilians slain by Tamil Hindu militias, especially the Tigers of Tamil Eelam [12].

Yugoslav Wars- extremely debated. Serbs deride the contumacy and revolt of the Croats and Bosniaks. Others insist that the Serbs committed mass rape and “genocide” of tens or even hundreds of thousands of non-Serbs, and 8-10,000 Muslims in Srbrenica alone [13]. War crimes were carried out by all parties, including Croatian nationalists, Bosnian Croats, Bosniak Muslims, and Bosnian Serbs.

Darfur war- extremely difficult to identify and ascertain statistics because of the wide array of tribes and religions involved in massive killings in the region that make it difficult to portray a phenomenon of one race slaughtering another. Sudan dismisses it. Human rights groups claim as high as millions are dead or displaced.

The Afrikaners are Starving – pictures & commentary exposing SA Genocide to an International Audience

contributed by G. Vallone & John de Nugent

Although much of our South African audience is painfully aware of what’s transpiring in their beloved homeland – the vast majority of the international community is not.

Why?

Because it’s been covered up by the Marxist elite running our respective medias.

For all intents and purposes there has been a media & Hollywood black out on South African anti-minority violence, and government sanctioned hatred.

Not only is this shameful, it’s proven deadly. Over the past two decades South Africa’s non-black population has been starved, raped, oppressed, forced from their land and hunted down, and the west has done absolutely nothing. Although the media has had a lot to do with this-our own apathy can’t be ignored either.

So why have the EKP championed the cause of the Afrikaner?

Although theirs is a uniquely tragic tale-in many ways it mirrors our own plight in the US. Like Americans, the Afrikaner are a people that turned a largely uninhabited tract of land into a great nation that they are now being displaced from.

In some ways, their plight reflects that of the great Western European folk-people indigenous to a soil they too are being told they have no rights on.

In spite of what are Marxist oppressors tell us, the Afrikaner are a truly African people-having lived in southern Africa for almost 500 years. They are now a quite complicated mix of people (with a large percentage of their rural population having indigenous African bloodlines) and therefore have literally no homeland outside of Africa to return to.

Not only have the Afrikaner people been deserted by the international community, they have also been so by the wealthier elements of their own society.

Their decision-one made in good faith, to compromise with the black African majority and hand over their nation to the Marxist swine now running the show, has resulted in the annihilation of those that have chosen and been forced to remain behind.

The richer members of their society have either deserted South Africa (SA), or have cozied up to the black leadership, leaving the poorest Afrikaners, as well as mixed race people speaking Afrikaans, to die.

So why is the world being kept from this tragedy but continuously bombarded with images of Sudanese, Somalis, Nigerians and black Africans starving?

“That’s an interesting question. There’s a veritable war being waged against minorities in SA, however because the minorities aren’t black, Hispanic, homosexual or Jewish:  groups protected by American civil rights legislation-and demographics, American and international Marxists believe warrant our sympathy, the media keeps it under wraps. This is all by design of course. One need only look at the names of the people behind the likes of MSNBC, FOX, the BBC, CNN & global Communism to understand why the Afrikaner are being ignored. Then there’s the fact that the white South African is seen as the last vestige of colonialism by our oppressors. They represent empire, colonialism and hyper-nationalism to the left…And let’s not forget that there are other unpopular minority groups in SA that are also being driven into extinction.” J Sen, EKP Minority Rights & Commonwealth advocate.

In fact in SA, the endangered minorities include the Afrikaner, Anglo, mixed/coloured, Portuguese-Mozambique and Indian populations. There’s certainly no one worthy of Marxist sympathy there….

Our friends at Censorbugbear provided us with truly disturbing photo montage and story exposing Afrikaner starvation.

“Little known fact – South Africa’s 3-million Afrikaners are now living in dismal squatter camps where they are denied government benefits, government food-aid and medical care – and by law, are also denied access the job market…

blogstarvingafricans1Picture: Pretoria squatter camp resident Sarie Rossouw is slowly starving to death…

Sarielives with her husband Hennie in a Pretoria squatter camp and is badly malnourished. She has only been visited once by a social worker this past year. Her frail husband Hennie, 70, tries to look after her as well as he can, but it’s difficult without health-care and no regular food supplies.

Pretoria has more than 70 squatter camps housing unemployable working-class Afrikaners, and they are consistently denied government-issued food-stamps and survival-benefits from the ANC-regime.

Solidarity trade union’s charity Helping Hand said in a recent letter to SA President Jacob Zuma that without urgent government subsidies and food-aid, many Afrikaners will start dying of starvation and poverty-related diseases – very soon.

Reports of babies and elderly Afrikaners dying of malnutrition are already emerging this year, amongst others reported by Dutch investigative journalist Saskia Vredeveld in her documentary “Poor whites in South Africa’, filmed in Coronation Park near Johannesburg and screened on Dutch IKON-TV earlier this year. She reported details about the death of a newborn Afrikaner baby – from hunger.

Solidarity’s letter also includes a series of pictures taken of some of the more than 650,000 homeless, impoverished Afrikaners.

There is growing interest from abroad in the so-called ‘poor white’ problem. Dutch investigative journalistSaskia Vredeveld and Australian photo-journalist Dean Saffron were only the latest of a long line of foreign journalists who have reported extensively from Afrikaner-poor camps this year.

And this month, a group of Dutch and Flemish students also visited the Eagle’ s Nest-squatter camp in Pretoria North. They visited the camp with its 100 poor residents and played a traditional Afrikaner sport called “Jukskei’ with the residents as part of the Dutch-South African Society youth-exchange programme. Dr Danie Langner, executive director of Helping Hand, said it was ‘very important for (foreign) students to be exposed to all the realities in South Africa, including the large number of Afrikaners who are now falling into permanent poverty and destitution. The students experienced at first hand the reality of the (more than 650,000) Afrikaners who have to survive without water, electricity or food-supplies each day. This squatter camp’s hundred residents live in horrific circumstances in which they are exposed to the elements each day”. The three-week visit by the Dutch-speaking students was sponsored by four universities, the Afrikaner League, the Afrikaans Language- and Cultural society, the Federation of Afrikaans Cultural Associations, Solidarity and the Foundation for the Empowerment of Afrikaans. http://www.zuidafrikahuis.nl/node/28

————————————————————————————

Defenseless elderly Afrikaners slowly starving to death…

Sixty-three percent of the residents in Pretoria’s 77 white squatter camps and tent-towns alone, are older than 60 years. There is only one social worker for every 4,000 South African resident. A total of 2,100 cases of dire poverty amongst whites are currently being investigated in the town of Centurion by its Council for the Elderly. In Pretoria, an average 1,000 cases are reported of whites being abused and left uncared in dismal conditions. Yet the government’s National Youth Development Agency (the former Umsobomvu Youth Fund) still rules that disability benefits are not granted to such impoverished, elderly Afrikaners.

Senior citizens find it increasingly difficult to live alone in their homes. General frailty, rising living expenses and vulnerability against crime are some of the reasons why they seek alternative accommodation. Old-age homes are only an option for those who receive a state pension, are frail and do not own property or have alternative sources of income. Senior citizens who receive a private pension, however small it may be, are not subsidised by the state and must pay the full unit cost in an old-age home, unless they are frail. The monthly unit cost could amount to R4 000,00 to R5 000,00 per person. [A South African rand is worth about one US dime, that is, 10 cents. So 4,000 rand is about 400 dollars.] Many of these elderly frail people end up in squatter camps.

The government’s social-welfare agencies also refuse to dispense food-stamps to destitute Afrikaners – even to the blind Mrs . Maria Schoeman, below:

This article from a leftist magazine, aside from some politically correct remarks about the supposed horrors of white rule and apartheid (and, after all, why did 100,000 blacks a year sneak from up north down INTO South Africa under white rule???????), is accurate and heart-rending:

Blacks and whites worked together under apartheid but lived in separate locations. The original apartheid plan, destroyed by the Marxist Jews who took over behind the scenes, was to create separate ethnic states (like US states), not just separate neighborhoods, and the plan was that the whole country would be an efficient, white-supervised federation of different ethnic and racial groups.

The prime minister who wanted total geographic separation — with semi-independent black countries — Hendrik Verwoerd, was suspiciously assassinated right on the floor of the parliament in the 1960s.

….THE AFRIKANER’S CONFESSION (a sarcastic and bitter essay by a Boer)

Along with the NG Church [Netherlands/Dutch Reformed Church, which is now hyper-liberal and preaches White guilt over apartheid to the Boers with full Black-government approval] we Afrikaners who are not members of it also wish to confess.

We want to confess to all coloureds [in South Africa, the “coloured” are the mixed-race/”mulatto” South Africans, who descend from Afrikaaner fathers and Black mothers, and they speak Afrikaans; there was a lot of this racial mixing in the 1700s until it was banned by law] and blacks in the RSA for every injustice we and our ancestors committed against them. We acted like senseless fools that knew no better, and today we are genuinely sorry for each of these sins which have brought only shame and damage over us:

1. We provided doctors and free medical services to them so that they could multiply and breed uncontrollably.

2. We sent missionaries among them in an attempt to introduce the white man’s God to them – all in vain.

3. We taught them to read and write and even put their own languages in writing for them. We also taught them elementary arithmetic. We built schools for them and repaired them again after they had trashed and burned them down.

4. We built factories and trained them to work in them in order to earn money – more than their black brothers have earned in any other African country.

5. We provided free housing for them, cheap transport, the protection of our police force, and when necessary, they also received free medical treatment in our best-equipped hospitals.

6. We developed farms on which we produced food in order to feed their millions of hungry stomachs.

7. We gave them clothing so that they would not have to go naked as in the time before Jan van Riebeeck, and become ill and die in the harsh winters.

8. We mined the minerals over which they trampled and regarded as worthless gravel and stone under their bare feet for centuries, and we let them share in the profits thereof. Thousands of them are still working in the mines.

9. Our women established welfare organisations to feed and clothe the destitute among them.

10. We built a network of roads on which they kill and maim us today.

11. We built huge dams in order for them to misuse water freely.

12. We spend 90% of our income on their welfare and needs and we do more for them than any other nation would do for its own people. For this the world despises us and we have lost all our self-respect.

We should not have done it! We are guilty! We are sorry!

We sincerely and humbly ask: May our black ‘brethren’ forgive us. Please, if possible, forgive us! We did it out of ignorance and meant well!

One day when we stand before God and we are judged, we will be judging ourselves. The condemned themselves will realise that their way was not worthy of Christ and that they were never prepared to make one single sacrifice on His behalf. They will remember how they stood looking on how the holy name of God was banned from schools; how they shrugged and accepted that the prayer of the Government was no longer the prayer directed to their Redeemer, the Son of God; how they believed the lies of the media without thinking or investigating for themselves; how they turned their backs when Satan attacked the children of God and were thankful it was not themselves being attacked.

Will they also remember how they, along with the followers of Satan, willingly knelt before the false gods for the sake of monetary gain, a shiny car, a few worldly possessions, and made pacts with the satanists of all races and sought their favour?

Merciful God, is there another nation with so many spineless jellyfish among its ‘men’? Show me the nation that sits back and looks on while its inheritance, its children, its spiritual goods, yes, everything that belongs to it, is robbed and plundered? Show me another nation whose parliament is run by a band of terrorists and robbers that carries away everything before it, and of whom many had to be released from the prisons in order to take over the running, no, the RUINING, of the country!

I see in the Boer (Afrikaner) of today a combination of what Israel suffered so many centuries ago. The nation is experiencing punishment as the Israelites did. They were slaves in Egypt for 400 years. Our slavery will be short-lived, but just as intense. We are waiting for a Redeemer, a Moses, an Elijah, because the nation itself cannot rectify the mess any longer. We are exiles in our own land, pushed out and have been reduced to the status of beggars along our roadsides.

HERE is a little background information of the current genocide of the white population in South Africa, so you can understand why this is happening .

South Africa’s NAZI Plan to Exterminate the White Population

Afrikaner Extermination – Slow Genocide

800,000 OF 3 MILLION AFRIKANERS HAVE BECOME INTERNAL REFUGEES BY 2010:

The ANC Government’s anti-white hiring- and land-ownership laws, the so-called black-economic-empowerment laws, cause severe homelessness, hunger and poverty among Afrikaners which is even worse than it is for poor blacks: the ANC-regime provides government benefits to some 16-million poor blacks and feeds 12-million poor children in the schools – benefits which they deny to the Afrikaners. 800,000 of the 3-million Afrikaners now live in abject poverty because of the ANC-regime’s official laws barring them from most public life: including jobs. They are even denied public health care and the government’s food-stamps…

These increasingly desperate and malnourished internal refugees huddle together for their own safety in some 640 squatter camps countrywide – often living at former missionary stations, in discarded government buildings and around farm dams; while many poor Afrikaners also created small enclaves at public municipal parks or the discarded campsites of the Afrikaanse Taal and Kultuurvereniging, as was done in disputed Coronation Park in Krugersdorp.

THESE DIRT-POOR AFRIKANER PEOPLE THUS ARE STEADILY GROWING MORE AND MORE DESTITUTE AND UNDERFED AS THEY ARE DENIED GOVERNMENT BENEFITS SUCH AS FOOD-AID, UNEMPLOYMENT- OR DISABILITY PENSIONS. THERE ARE JUST A FEW PRIVATE WELFARE ORGANISATIONS WHICH DARE TO HELP THEM SUCH AS SOLIDARITY TRADE UNION ‘S HELPING HAND CHARITY, WHICH TRIES DESPERATELY TO KEEP FEEDING AND HOUSING THEM ALL…

“The ANC-regime now is planning to uproot some of the Afrikaner squatter camps by force and dump them in nearby black townships.  But Afrikaners greatly fear being dumped in these squatter camps – where the clearly already present animosity can very quickly turn into deadly violence.”   http://censorbugbear-reports.blogspot.com/2010/11/blacks-reject-poor-whites-in-townships.html

BLACKS REJECT POOR WHITES IN TOWNSHIPS

Afrikaners are rapidly changing from the ex-employers of millions of blacks and home-owners to desperately hungry internal refugees who cannot find safe refuge in their own country…

Pretoria, South Africa, 18 November 2010  – The ‘housing crisis’ for poor South Africans is taking a startling new turn. The ANC-regime is planning the forced-removals of poor Afrikaners to black townships, starting with Krugersdorp’s Coronation Park squatters.  However the black residents in the townships are up in arms about these plans: often violently opposed to having poor ‘Boers’ in their midst. A recent article in the Sowetan about the forced move received some hefty comments  — See article:  sowetanlive.co.za/whites-blacks-fight-over-rdps (please note 286 comments of a very racist nature)

Moreover, the Afrikaners – greatly fearing for their safety —  also don’t want to be moved there and plan a protest march through Pretoria’s Main street on December 11,  2010.

There’s a massive backlog in the building of public houses for poor blacks – also because there are an annual million poor black people streaming across the wide-open borders from the rest of the continent who put heavy stresses on the country’s rapidly-dwindling resources.

Food-aid to destitute Afrikaners given in secret…

November 25 2010 – PRETORIA. A group of commercial farmers in Mpumalanga has to work in secret – just to send three eight-ton trucks with 24 tons of produce for tens of thousands of destitute Afrikaners in Hatfield, Claremont, Wolmer ( Pretoria ) and Coronation Park ( Krugersdorp ) this month. These impoverished working-class Afrikaner communities are being placed under heavy pressure by the ANC-mayors of Pretoria, Krugersdorp and other towns who want to forcibly move them to black squatter camps – where they will be away from public scrutiny and will be far too dangerous for charity workers from the Afrikaner community.

Poor Afrikaners denied most government benefits – even food-stamps:

This growing army of increasingly poor, working class Afrikaners also is consistently denied government food-aid, public housing and any other charity-benefits from the ANC-regime – and the (then-) ANC-mayor in Pretoria even sued two Afrikaner charity-workers for erecting small Wendy houses for these homeless, destitute families, ordering them demolished. The tens of thousands of homeless Afrikaner squatters have become internal refugees in the towns which were founded by their forebears – greater Pretoria, Krugersdorp, Vereeniging and elsewhere. The ANC-regime wants to ethnically-cleanse the poor Afrikaners from their home-towns by forcibly removing them to black townships – away from public scrutiny by the news media and Afrikaner charities such as Volkshulp 2000 and Helpende Hand

This month, black residents in the township of Kagiso  – opposed to the forced-removal plans by the council – even threatened to kill the impoverished Afrikaner families if they were moved into public housing: the black residents are mounting counter-campaigns against the plans.

CHARITY WORKERS SUED BY ANC-MAYOR: ORDERED TO DEMOLISH HOUSING FOR POOR AFRIKANERS

In June 2010, Pretoria’s ANC-mayor lost a court order against two Afrikaner charity-workers when it overruled the council’s order to demolish prefabricated Wendy houses for all the ‘poor-white’ families. These Good Samaritans – Mrs Magda Stroebel and Mr Johan Brummer – were forced to appear in the local municipal court as if they were criminals for ‘ contravening the council’s bylaws.” However, the Freedom Front Plus party’s councillor in the West Moot area, Mr Philip van Staden, aided by legal counsel Roelof van der Merwe, won the case.    and

ANC anti-white laws similar to Nuremberg-laws:

  •  (Afrikaners are barred from public life by ANC-laws after 1994; the Jews of Europe were barred by Hitler’s laws from 1935 to 1945…)

At the end of 2008 a province-by-province census by Solidarity trade union’s charity Helpende Hand registered more than 800,000 impoverished, homeless Afrikaners – out of a total 3-million. Many young, better-educated Afrikaner/Boer families have emigrated to many countries off-continent: mostly to British commonwealth countries. Their grinding poverty is due only to the fact that ANC-regime’s official black-economic empowerment laws effectively bar all the so named ‘previously-advantaged whites’ from most public life — including jobs in the public- and private sector. A violence-driven campaign of terror was also mounted by the ANC-regime to force Afrikaners from civil-service jobs and from the South African commercial farms and smallholdings.

Fog of war” hides Afrikaner genocide:

IN 1998 NELSON MANDELA RELEASED 9,000 EXTREMELY DANGEROUS CRIMINALS TO CELEBRATE HIS 80TH BIRTHDAY…  NOW A CRIMINAL WAVE SWAMPS SOUTH AFRICA

“…In 1998 Nelson Mandela released 9,000 criminals who had less than six months left of their sentence as his 80th Birthday present to the Nation. Many of these criminals were extremely dangerous…murderers, rapists, hi-jackers, armed robbers…”

“Ever since then it is my belief that the current crime situation is a deliberate creation of the ANC …”

“I have also heard other people agreeing with me and coming to the same conclusions. The ANC wants this criminal wave to swamp South Africa…they want this cloud of criminality to hang over South Africa so that the world does not see what is really going on in South Africa.   Under this “fog of war”, genocide of whites can be perpetrated and be blamed on “ordinary crime” such as “botched hi-jackings” and “botched robberies…’

New World Order Ties:

The African Union is playing right into the hands of the New World Order. Or should we say the African Union is the brainchild of the New World Order.  Africans believe that they need to be ‘ONE’ again in order to achieve success.   However in order to achieve unity in diversity and this “NEW WORLD” they dream of, they need to remove the white man (or anything that will stand in their way).  The New World Order do not care what happens to anyone in each and every county in Africa, as long as their plan is achieved at the end of the day.

The GOAL is to have a people who are SUBMISSIVE  to them that will go along with their plans without question, the spirit of the African people is of an occult nature (traditional African religions) and therefore unites with the anti-Christ spirit of the New World Order.   (See here:  Jacob Zuma wants Cleansing Ceremony)  White people are mostly Christian and need to be exterminated.

Indians in South Africa are either Hindu’s or Muslims and are not barred from seeking work.  Yes there are many genuine Christian black people as well, but they are none the wiser as to what they ANC government is doing – hence this article.  Many so called Christian Blacks in South Africa, fall under Roman Catholicism, Anglicism, Methodism, and the Zionist ZCC, etc, and then there is a huge following of the false Word of Faith/Prosperity doctrine.

White unemployment as a consequence of harsh Cadre Deployment and Affirmative Action driven by ANC demands is driving more and more whites into unemployment

A recent estimate places the quantum of unemployed whites at about 760,000 which is about 17% of the current white population

These people have largely been replaced by incompetent individuals who are doing great harm to the economy

Devin is also very generous, kind and peaceful person who loves animals, elderly and kids, and the nature of this crime is too far reaching for anyone that knows Devin. There are many wrong doings and civil rights violations with arresting and accusing and holding Devin for these alledged crimes. Please do not let this paticular Court system ruin Devins present and future

Published on Mar 28, 2014

Unfortunately, Devin has ended up a victim of this Counties insane ongoing corrupt legal system. He is innocent, only guilty of letting a homeless friend spend a few nights at his home to get out of the cold. Devin had no idea that this friend would end up being charged with a crime, let alone, him being accused of the crime as well.

There is much evidence that points to other individuals of serious criminal activities, yet Law and Courts in Nevada County are complicit to let an innocent young man take an unfounded charge so they can easily railroad a kid, and lie to the public on how easy and fast they can find the criminals to close the case, without having to work such a deal.

Aid For the People of Pungesti, Romania ~ Victims of Chevron Greed and Deception

.

rosiamontana9

.

CITIZENS OF THE WORLD:  It is NOW time to come together as ONE FAMILY to stand with our brothers and sisters in a small village in Romania – Pungesti, UNITED AS ONE FAMILY to defeat Chevron in their Greed and Deception.  Chevron and the United Nations Nuclear Experts threw a big party for the villagers trying to deceive them into thinking that fracking would be something wonderful.  However, due to some of the villagers who have internet access, standing up in the Town Hall Meeting and telling the Officials that they know the truth about FRACKING, the entire village knew they did not want their homes and lands destroyed by earthquakes and poisoned water caused by fracking.  They refused the “offer” ~ However, the government of Romania, in a back-room deal, told Chevron to COME ON DOWN. If you do not read Romanian, PLEASE look at all the pictures and videos below- because one picture is worth a 1000 words. SEE how these brave people defied the Special Forces Police sent by the government to force fracking on them.

This is an appeal for donations, in any amount of $$ you would like to send to fortify the people of Pungesti, standing on the front lines against the Giant Machines of Chevron, with medicines and food. Although these people are in a remote village, they have the Courage of the Ancients to stand up against the GIANT CHEVRON.

If you would like to send a donation through PayPal, send it to the following PayPal address:

orion_orion888@hotmail.com

(Be Sure to put the UNDERSCORE between the two orions)

CHEVRON has left ~ but they SHALL RETURN with their huge machines to destroy the Village and the Land as soon as they think the people have chilled out.  We want Our People to be well fortified with food and cold medicines to help them stand on the front lines to fight this Evil Corporate Giant of the New World Order.  Please donate whatever you are able.

Ieri s-a decis in Anonymous World Legion Council sa cumparam hrana si medicamente pentru satenii din Pungesti , pentru a putea rezista pe baricade ! Anonymous din intreaga lume vom asigura astfel satenii romani ca NU SUNT SINGURI si II APARAM !

Yesterday, it was decided in Anonymous World Legion Council to buy food and medicines for the villagers of Pungesti, in order to be able to stand on the barricades! Anonymous worldwide we ensure the Romans as villagers are NOT ALONE and STAND UP!

REZISTENTA CONTINUÃ!

PE AICI NU SE FOREAZÃ Cu toate manevrele de intimidare exercitate prin aducerea în zonã de forte importante de jandarmi, locuitorii din Pungesti au reusit sã blocheze, pentru încã o zi, intentia Chevron de a începe explorarea gazelor de sist la Silistea. În ajutorul pungestenilor au sãrit si vecinii din comunele Gârceni sau Ivãnesti, dar si protestatari sau activisti din Bârlad, Suletea sau Iasi. Încercarea jandarmilor de a dispersa multimea pentru a permite utilajelor sã pãtrundã pe perimetru s-a soldat cu victime, nu mai putin de cinci persoane fiind transportate la Spitalul Judetean de Urgentã. Cel mai important, însã, e faptul cã protestatarii din Pungesti nu sunt singuri. Asearã, peste 1000 de oameni din Bucuresti, Cluj Napoca, TârguMures, etc au iesit în stradã arãtându-si solidaritatea fatã de vasluieni!

rosiamontana5

Încã de la primele ore ale diminetii, era clar cã la Silistea, acolo unde sute de locuitori protestau de douã zile împotriva intentiei Chevron de a începe explorarea gazelor de sist, se va întâmpla ceva. Au apãrut efective importante de jandarmi, urmate, la scurt timp, de utilajele firmei muresene Mif SA, care ar fi trebuit sã amenajeze drumul de acces în perimetru. Pânã la prânz, a fost liniste, fãcându-si aparitia din ce în ce mai multe trupe de jandarmi, de la Vaslui si Bacãu, care, în primã fazã, s-au pozitionat pe axul drumului judetean, chipurile pentru a nu fi blocat drumul. La ora 13.30, a fost dat semnalul interventiei în fortã, efectivele fiind dublate, jandarmii împingându-i pe protestatari în câmp, pentru a permite accesul trailerelor, care au descãrcat utilajele, un buldozer si un buldoexcavator, angajatii Mif pregãtindu-se sã se apuce de treabã. A fost efectuatã si o manevrã de învãluire, tocmai în încercarea de a crea culoar de trecere utilajelor, în special pentru amplasarea tuburilor de beton pentru realizarea unui pod peste ravena de la marginea perimetrului vizat de beton. În timpul busculadei, mai multor persoane în vârstã li s-a fãcut rãu, având nevoie de îngrijiri medicale. Cel mai grav afectati de interventia jandarmilor au fost Gheorghe Munteanu, de 81 ani, care a fost cãlcat în picioare de jandarmi, si Costicã Spiridon, sufletul protestului, care a fost lovit si împins de un jandarm în ravena de la marginea drumului. Plin de apã si noroi, rãmas fãrã cunostintã, fostul primar al comunei a stat minute în sir aruncat în iarbã, pe câmp, pânã s-a permis accesul medicilor de pe ambulanta situatã la doar câtiva metri. Transportat la ambulantã, a fost resuscitat de medici si transportat de urgentã la Spitalul Judetean de Urgentã Vaslui, starea sa fiind gravã, cu atât mai mult cu cât acesta mai suferise, anterior, un infarct.

rosiamontana6

În genunchi în fata jandarmillor si utilajelor

rosiamontana11

Tactica protestatarilor a fost de a se opune fãrã violentã, de cele mai multe ori asezându-se pur si simplu pe jos, pentru a nu permite accesul utilajelor. Imediat, zona a fost izolatã, un filtru de politie situat la Moara Sima, la intrarea în comuna Pungesti dinspre DN Vaslui Bacãu, si cordonul de jandarmi din dreptul perimetrului interzicând accesul vehiculelor în zonã, încercând astfel cã opreascã pe alti protestatari sã se alãture revoltei. Tot atunci, dat fiind “succesul” obtinut de fortele de ordine, prin descãrcarea utilajelor de pe trailere, în zonã si-au fãcut aparitia alte douã tiruri, unul cu tuburile necesare realizãrii podului peste ravenã, altul cu pietris. Mai mult decât atât, muncitorii Mif SA erau gata sã se apuce de treabã, dacã protestatarii nu ar fi rezistat presiunii jandarmilor. În tot acest timp, subprefectul Andrei Puicã era prezent, dar fãrã sã-si facã aparitia în apropierea protestatarilor. În total, peste 250 de jandarmi au încercat sã intimideze manifestantii, la acel moment chiar mai putini decât jandarmii. Odatã cu aflarea vestii cã Spiridon a fost bruscat de jandarmi, fiind aproape de moarte, zeci de alti locuitori din zonã au început sã se alãture manifestantilor, inclusiv un grup de activisti anti-Chevron în frunte cu pãrintele protopop Vasile Lãiu. Câteva ore protestatarii anti-Chevron s-au masat pe sosea, pentru a interzice accesul celorlalte tiruri cu materiale. La ora 17, o formatie de circa 50 de jandarmi, nou veniti la Pungesti, au încercat sã-i îndepãrteze pe protestatari, în acest sens seful brigãzii mobile Bacãu parlamentând cu oamenii masati pe sosea, printre care se aflau si multi copii. Vãzând cã manifestantii nu cedeazã, jandarmii au încercat o stratagemã, trimitând la înaintare o ambulantã, care chipurile, trebuia sã preia un copil bolnav de la Gârceni. Vãzând cã jandarmii s-au masat imediat în spatele ambulantei, manifestantii nu i-au permis accesul, ajungându-se la o nouã altercatie cu cei 50 de jandarmi, care însã nu au reusit sã strãpungã barajul uman. Motivul interventiei jandarmilor a fost faptul cã manifestantii blocheazã drumul judetean, asta desi, de ore bune traficul era blocat chiar de fortele de ordine. În tot acest timp, numãrul protestatarilor crestea, în sprijinul lor venind tot mai multi locuitori în special din Ivãnesti, Pungesti sau Gârceni, la ora 17.30 fãcându-si aparitia un grup de circa 20 de persoane venite tocmai de la Suletea, în frunte cu primarul comunei, Ciprian Robert Tamas, la alte câteva minute, un grup masiv de bârlãdeni sosind si ei la Silistea, aducând mâncare, ceai cald si sucuri pentru manifestanti. Toti acestia au trebuit sã strãbatã mai multi km pe jos, dat fiind interzicerea, de cãtre fortele de ordine, a oricãrui vehicul în zonã. Mai multi preoti, peste 15, în special din zona Bârlad si Puiesti, si-au fãcut aparitia la Silistea, alãturându-se revoltei, prezenta acestora aducând un plus de sperantã acestei manifestãri spontane. În sfârsit, abia la orele 18 si-a fãcut aparitia si prefectul Radu Renga, însotit, se pare, de seful jandarmeriei române, dr. col. Mircea Olaru, si care, imediat dupã sosire, i-au bãgat în sedintã pe comandantii jandarmilor, col. Paul Smântânã, comandantul IJJ Vaslui, si seful brigãzii mobile Bacãu. Singura declaratie fãcutã presei de cãtre prefectul Renga a fost una lapidarã: “Important este ca nimeni sã nu pãteascã nimic, iar legile tãrii sã fie respectate”. Nimeni nu a dorit sã explice de ce jandarmii protejeazã interesele unei firme private, Chevron, câtã vreme protestul a fost pasnic, neînregistrându-se nici un fel de violentã pânã la interventia fortelor de ordine. Dupã venirea prefectului, si în conditiile în care crestea numãrul demonstrantilor, au fost retrasi cei 50 de jandarmi care încercaserã sã spargã barajul uman în cursul dupã-amiezei, apoi au plecat pompierii prezenti încã de dimineatã la fata locului, si ambulantele, ca, imediat dupã aceea, cele douã tiruri cu materiale care asteptau sã fie descãrcate au fãcut cale întoarsã, fiind garate în curtea primãriei din Ivãnesti, acolo unde se pare cã a fost stabilit cartierul general al fortelor de ordine pe timpul noptii. La vederea plecãrii tirurilor, multimea a izbucnit în urale, considerând acest lucru ca o mare victorie a zilei de ieri. Toti cei prezenti si-au declarat intentia de a rãmâne în continuare, non stop, indiferent de vreme, pe pozitii, la Silistea, pentru a nu permite începerea lucrãrilor de explorare a gazelor de sist. Pentru sâmbãtã, 19 octombrie, la Pungesti este anuntat un mare miting, la care si-au anuntat participarea mii de persoane, inclusiv din tarã, din Bucuresti sau Timisoara.

HERE COMES CHEVRON WITH THEIR HUGE MACHINES TO START DESTROYING THE VILLAGERS HOMES AND LAND.

Rugãciuni împotriva violentei jandarmilor

În nenumãrate rânduri, manifestantii au fãcut apel la ratiune, dar si la întelegerea jandarmilor: “Sunteti vasluieni si oameni ca si noi, de ce nu ne sunteti alãturi?!?”, ori “Astãzi, cautã gaze la Pungesti, mâine poate cautã la voi acasã!”. Un grup de copii, în frunte cu un cadru didactic, învãtãtoare la scoala din Gârceni, au fãcut, la un moment dat, lant viu în fata masinilor Chevron, scandând “Si noi vrem sã trãim”, si “Nu vrem sã murim”. Preotii care s-au alãturat manifestantilor, în frunte cu protopopul Vasile Lãiu, au rostit, în mai multe rânduri, rugãciuni, toti oamenii punându-se în genunchi în acele momente. De altfel, pãrintele Lãiu, unul dintre cei mai consecventi protestatari anti-Chevron a explicat, atât multimii, cât si jandarmilor, riscurile fractionãrii hidraulice. Ca si zilele trecute, nimeni din conducerea primãriei nu si-a fãcut aparitia, primarul Mircia Vlasã fiind în continuare “în concediu” si, deloc surprinzãtor, nimeni din conducerea CJ Vaslui nu a venit în zonã, pentru a lua contact cu realitatea de la Pungesti, cu oameni care se opun explorãrii gazelor de sist. De altfel, chiar dacã au fost prezenti la Silistea, nici prefectul Renga, si nici subprefectul Andrei Puicã nu au dorit sã dialogheze cu oamenii, rezervându-se la a observa situatia si a da ordine fortelor de interventie.

Jandarmii în slujba Chevron!

Personajele negative ale zilei de ieri, au fost, alãturi de politicieni, jandarmii. Acesti au avut câteva interventii în care au arãtat cã nu le pasã de cetãtenii români, ci de interesele firmei Chevron. Evident, nu vorbim de lucrãtorii de pe teren, ci de sefii acestora care au dat ordinele. Aceiasi sefi au negat cu înversunare cã jandarmii au folosit forta pentru a-i intimida pe protestatri. Ieri timp de cinci ore, au existat mai multe declaratii si comunicate oficiale în care s-a spus cã nu au existat violente. Asearã, însã, am obtinut mai multe filmãri în care se vede clar cu jandarmii îi agreseazã pe protestatari. De asemenea, foarte multi martori oculari au povestit cum Costicã Spiridon a fost lovit si împins de un jandarm într-o baltã si târât de acolo ca un sac de cartofi. Ulterior acesta a ajuns la spital în stare gravã. Este doar una din scenele în care jandarmii au folosit violenta. Scandalos este faptul cã nu s-au bãtut cu ultrasi sau “golani” din stadioane, ci cu bãtrâni, femei si copii!

Fukushima is Here Now ~ This Will Kill You.

.

fukushima9

.

Cancer cluster in Ulster. They suggest the Leukemias are caused by former apple orchards that existed in the area long ago, but they weren’t reporting illness until 2012. UK gets a lot of fallout from Fukushima due to high precipitation.

You think that won’t kill you? That will KILL you! The children are dying and they are trying to blame farmers who aren’t even there anymore. We have to break through the wall of silence in science and the media.

RECORD ON LINE

HIGHLAND — County and state health officials are investigating whether a potential “cancer cluster” exists in the Town of Lloyd after at least four children have been diagnosed with childhood leukemia within the past 20 months.

Lloyd Supervisor Paul Hansut referred the cases to the county Health Department two months ago. According to county sources, Ulster County Health Commissioner Carol Smith reviewed the request and found it credible enough to forward to the state Health Department.

Smith was not immediately available for comment Thursday. No comment was available from the state Health Department.  The next steps and the time frame are undetermined.

There’s been a long-standing fear in towns like Lloyd, where apple growing has been a primary industry, that soil and water may be contaminated by decades of reliance on toxic weed and pest control chemicals.

Hansut said earlier this week that he became concerned after attending a benefit for one of the children and learning of other cases. While he said he didn’t believe all the affected homes were built on former orchards, at least three of the homes drew their water from wells.

fukushima10Stacey Malheiro’s 8-year-old daughter Alexandra was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia or ALL, the most common type of childhood cancer, in July of 2012. Following exhaustive and exhausting steroid and chemotherapy, Alexandra’s disease is now in remission, her mother said.

“She’s a trouper,” she said, a description that’s been used by everyone who’s come to know Alexandra.

Three boys ranging in age from 3 to 4 have also been diagnosed with cancer, two with ALL and one with stage four neuroblastoma, according to Malheiro, who stays in touch with the affected families.

Hansut said that since he’s posted information on Facebook he’s received at least fifty inquiries from residents worried about the possibility of cancer clusters in connection with other types of cancer.

Stacey Malheiro, her husband, Joe, and two sons moved to Highland seven years ago from Brooklyn.

“We’re very proud people,” Stacey Malheiro said Thursday. “We’re taught ‘You do it yourself; don’t ask for help.’ But people have come forward, they’ve been great, and all we can do is pay it forward, which is what I hope this does for other families, helps them in some way.”

SAMPLE MESSAGE

The United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) during their 60th session, submitted a report on expected human  health effects of the Fukashima Daiichi nuclear meltdowns. The report, produced by only 80 people called “scientists”, predicted no deaths or negative health impacts attributable to radiation releases in Japan among workers or the general public. In retrospect, it is obvious that the report was innacurate and deliberately misleading.

. The Fukushima Daiichi plant manager who stayed through the night, trying to prevent the meltdowns, is dead. His cancer was of rapid onset and progression. The publicity surrounding his death made it impossible to conceal the hazards Tepco workers face on a daily basis at Fukushima Daiichi.

. The published reports of several dozen children in Fukushima Prefecture diagnosed with thyroid abnormalities and three with thyroid cancer, a rare disease in children, also confirms the serious public health hazard associated with releases of ionizing radiation from Fukushima.

. The UNSCEAR report constitutes a deliberate attempt to conceal the potential detrimental effects of the release of ionizing radiation on all complex life forms exposed to it. The Tepco emergency workers at Fukushima face the greatest hazard and are silenced by their employer. Workers have not been provided the necessary equipment to accurately determine their exposure. Medical examination of workers appears to be inadequate and yet reports have leaked publicly of 400% increase of elevated white blood cell counts among workers, indicative of Leukemia.

. While working under the most hazardous possible conditions, the Fukushima emergency workers have been prevented from speaking freely to news reporters or on the internet. This is unacceptable. As more accurate measurements of radioactive contamination released by the nuclear meltdowns has become available to the wider scientific community and the public, it has become impossible for UNSCEAR to conceal the seriousness of the disaster, the grave threat to the entire planet, and the immediate peril Fukushima emergency workers face in the performance of their duties.

. The Fukushima emergency workers are risking their lives at Fukushima Daiichi for every person on Earth. It is now perfectly clear that those men are fighting a force that may threaten civilization and even life as we know it on the entire globe. The workers must be fully informed of the hazards they face. Their partucipation must be voluntary and they must have freedom of speech.

. The UN’s failure to develop an international task force to stop the Fukushima meltdowns, recapture the lost cores, and make safe the spent fuel rods in fragile reactor buildings, has caused the public to doubt the wisdom and competency of world leaders around the globe. The failure to protect the health and human rights of Fukushima emergency workers cannot continue.

. The UN must immediately act to secure the rights of Fukushima emergency workers to be fully informed of the risks they face, the right to speak freely and publicly about Operations at the Fukushima Daiuchi nuclear power station, and the best possible equipment and health care must be provided for their safety. No matter who you are or where you live on planet Earth, the Fukushima emergency workers are fighting for your life.

.

I DEMAND that the U.N. conduct Inspections of Working Conditions at the Fukushima Daiichi Plant.

OPEN LETTER BY CORAL EDWARD BROWN

This Alert is in reference to the November 1988 explosion at the Brown Brothers Construction Site located at 87th Street and Blue River Road in Kansas City, Mssouri. I want to know why the firefighters used water on a fire that had explosives on site. I believe that the lack of professional handling of the fire at the Construction Site was a major factor in the deaths of those six firefighters.

.

I, Edward Brown (Father of Richard Brown) would like to know why there was never any questioning of the firefighter’s responsibility to follow standard protocol in approaching a fire that had an unknown cause. In the transcripts, it is reported that the fire chief repeated three times “Do not put water on that fire!” Was this sheer negligence on the part of the firefighters when they didn’t listen to their Chief’s commands nor follow standard training in the Hazmat rules on how to handle a fire that had explosives on site? Is it possible they had not been trained properly? It seems that had they not applied water and if they had followed protocol, the explosion would NOT have happened! Does a Part of the responsibility in this mishap belong to ones in charge of training?

Granted, it has been determined by the court that it was a planned fire and the courts have finally determined and declared that it was not planned by the five people charged and doing the prison time now for allegedly committing a crime. The fact is they have consistently insisted they did not set the fire. Attention should be shifted now to find the ones who planned and set this fire. A young friend named, Bryan, who was a minor at the time, is still serving a six-count life sentence for involuntary man slaughter along with four other people. There is a law that says a 17 year old minor cannot be sentenced to life without parole and yet Bryan is still in prison. What will it take to release those innocent victims for a crime they did not commit?!? When does the responsibility finally rest in the hands of the ones who planned the fire and the firefighters who responded unprofessionally to an unknown fire that ultimately led to the explosion?!

I am disgusted with the corruptness of this case and our court System! Bryan was a minor being tried as an adult for a crime he did not do.

My son, Richard Brown,  was spending the night at his grandfather’s house and he was in bed at the time of this tragic fire. He got out of bed, and his family and the neighbors all testified that they had seen him standing on his grandfather’s porch in his boxers right after the first explosion. I know for sure that it is virtually impossible to be at two places at the same time!

For 17 years now my son has been basically lost to me. He has also lost everything. He loved to clown around, tease people, and make others laugh. The first thing he lost was his freedom which he valued because he wanted to live a good upstanding life. He wanted to have a family, a wife, and children. He left three babies, one was a year, one was a new born, and his daughter was seven years old. Their mother had to raise them without their dad’s help. He wanted to offer his talents to better his family and to help people; he was good hearted and looked for people to help. My heart is sickened in regard to these facts of what he has lost and also for the loss of all this time. I also hurt for all the families of the other people that were wrongly accused and convicted of this horrible crime. I am sorry about the firefighters and their families; they are all victims of this atrocity as well. The people who were wrongly convicted and are serving time in prison are also truly victims, too.

With this letter I entreat the courts, lawyers and interested parties who actually seek justice in this world, and most specifically the ones that have worked on this case, to hold accountable and find the guilty ones who set this fire, who originated and committed this crime. I also encourage, anyone to question the level of responsibility the firefighters had in performing their job. Do not misunderstand my plea; I know it is incredibly unfortunate what happened to everyone concerned.

Yet, everyone makes mistakes and sometimes it even costs them their lives. We know it also causes incredible pain for their family and loved ones. What will correct this horrible wrong is to find the people that were the real criminals, the true perpetrators of this horrible tragedy.

I invite anyone reading this letter right now to interview me as to my extensive research and knowledge of this case. I hope to be able to tell each one of you what I plan to do next! You may email me at the following email address:  pewebre@sbcglobal.net .

The U.S. Department of Justice should impanel a grand jury to re-investigate the “wrongful convictions” of five people in the 1988 arson and explosion deaths of six Kansas City firefighters, attorneys for the defendants said Thursday.

A U.S. Department of Justice investigation prompted by stories in The Kansas City Star said last year that others in addition to the defendants were involved in the arson and explosion that killed firefighters Thomas Fry, Gerald Halloran, Luther Hurd, James Kilventon Jr., Robert D. McKarnin and Michael Oldham.

The federal investigation, only portions of which were released to the public, said “several newly developed pieces of information, not previously known to the prosecution,” suggest that other people, who were never prosecuted, “may have been involved in the arsons.”

Justice Department officials said at the time, however, that the new evidence did not exonerate the five people convicted in the arson. Any new suspects, investigators said, would have committed the crime along with those found guilty at a 1997 trial.

Investigators did not explain why the defendants, who have served more than 17 years and always have maintained their innocence — would have failed to tell authorities that they had accomplices.

But attorneys for the defendants said they now believe the new evidence they will reveal Friday “points completely away from those defendants and toward others who were not adequately investigated.”

Those convicted in the case were Frank Sheppard; his brother Skip Sheppard (who died in prison in 2009); their nephew Bryan Sheppard; his best friend, Richard Brown; and Frank Sheppard’s girlfriend, Darlene Edwards.

Pilate and the Midwest Innocence Project, who are working together on the case, said they will be asking members of the public who have additional information about the case to contact them.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Missouri said late Thursday that Pilate made several presentations regarding new evidence in the case to the office last year. But it added that “none of the information Ms. Pilate has presented … to date indicates that the defendants in the firefighters case were wrongly convicted.”

“In this case, as in every case, the United States Attorney’s Office remains willing to receive and review any information from Ms. Pilate or others regarding the 1988 firefighters case and encourages anyone with relevant information to step forward and contact federal law enforcement.”

To reach Mike McGraw, call 816-234-4423 or send email to mcgraw@kcstar.com.

http://www.kansascity.com/2012/09/28/3838954/this-case-is-not-going-away-attorneys.html

Attorneys representing two of the four living defendants serving life sentences in the 1988 deaths of six Kansas City firefighters said Friday that they have developed “compelling new information that casts substantial doubt” on the guilt of all four.

Cheryl Pilate of Morgan Pilate LLC and Laura O’Sullivan, legal director of the Midwest Innocence Project, said at a news conference that their new findings — along with information unearthed last year by federal authorities — should be enough to convince the government to impanel a new grand jury to investigate the 24-year-old case.

Pilate said that there were significant gaps and leads that weren’t pursued in the original investigation and that the new information “casts very grave doubts on the government’s case.”

“This case is not going away,” she said.

The U.S. attorney’s office has said that several meetings with Pilate have yet to convince them to reopen the case.

But Pilate said Friday that she will be presenting the new information at additional meetings and that the U.S. attorney is maintaining an “open door” to hearing any new evidence.

Pilate said several newly developed pieces of information “not previously known to the prosecution” suggest that others were responsible for the November 1988 arson and explosion that killed firefighters Thomas Fry, Gerald Halloran, Luther Hurd, James Kilventon Jr., Robert D. McKarnin and Michael Oldham.

She said her investigation has concentrated on witnesses who drove by a highway construction site the night of the explosion and whose statements suggest that other people were responsible for the crime.

However, she declined to discuss specifics, noting that could influence potential witnesses and hinder the ongoing investigation by her office and the Midwest Innocence Project.

Nearly nine years after the deadly explosion, five people were convicted of the crimes: Frank Sheppard and his brother Skip Sheppard, who died in prison; their nephew Bryan Sheppard; Richard Brown; and Frank Sheppard’s girlfriend, Darlene Edwards.

O’Sullivan represents Bryan Sheppard, the youngest of the defendants, and Pilate represents Edwards.

At the news conference, Pilate read portions of a statement from Marion Germann, a retired battalion chief who is the only firefighter who survived the explosions, in which he said he supports reopening the case because he knows some prosecution witnesses did not tell the truth.

“I’ve just always been uncomfortable with whether the right people went to trial,” Germann told The Star in a 2008 interview.

In addition, for the first time, a relative of one of the fallen firefighters agreed that a new investigation may be needed.

Leo Halloran, brother of Gerald Halloran, told The Star that a new grand jury needs to consider new evidence in the case.

“That’s the only way to clear all this up,” Leo Halloran said.

The Star began investigating long-held doubts about the convictions in 2007. Ed Massey, who was cutting wood at the construction site around the time of the explosion, told the newspaper and later federal investigators that he saw someone set the fires that caused the explosions, but that it was not the five who were convicted.

That and other newspaper stories prompted an independent investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice that was completed in July 2011.

The department found information, not previously known to the prosecution, that suggested that other people “may have been involved in the arsons.”

But Justice Department officials said the new evidence did not exonerate the five defendants who were convicted.

At Friday’s news conference, the lawyers asked that anyone with information about the case email it to kcfirefighterexplosion88@gmail.com.

The situation for immigrants seeking political asylum in Greece is a total nightmare! How they are treated is shocking considering that Greece is the birthplace of Democracy!  “Golden Dawn” is a ‘neo-Nazi‘ party that seeks out immigrants to beat them mercilessly and terrorize any others who sympathize with the situation that these political asylum seekers are in while trapped in Greece.

“Golden Dawn” wants these political asylum seekers out of Greece so they harrass and beat them.  The problem is a result of the EU’s rules and regulation for asylum seekers that make Greece a port of entry to the EU so that they cannot proceed to eastern Europe easily. These immigrants are stuck in a country that can not afford to feed them.

It is unacceptable for the disturbed psychopaths of ‘Golden Dawn” to be elected to the Greek Parliament, and exist anywhere in society including the police department. Not all Greeks agree with this treatment that the police inflict and Greek government condones. “GOLDEN DAWN” is trying to take over Greece and make it a fascist state!
