Radio signals emerging from the newly-discovered ‘TRAPPIST-1’ planetary system have been decoded by linguistic experts at NASA, confirming the existence of extraterrestrial lifeforms who want ‘no part of Earth’s bullshit’.
There was great excitement from astronomy enthusiasts earlier this week following the discovery of seven planets in the ‘habitable’ zone of a nearby solar system; planets which seemingly had all the criteria for supporting life.
However, this was eroded somewhat today when NASA announced that lifeforms on the third of these planets seemed to be ‘standing very still as if not to be noticed’, much like how someone would hide behind the sofa in their house if a TV licence inspector or debt collector came to the door.
After further radio probing, a signal from the planet was received and later translated, and appears to show that the alien lifeforms were well aware of the existence of Earth.
“The transmission begins ‘Oh fucking bollocky bollocks’” said a spokesperson for NASA, addressing a press conference.
“‘They’ve found us, well that’s just tickety-fucking-boo’. The conversation then breaks down into a series of back-and-forth arguments where the aliens appear to blame each other for being found, with one very vocal creature appearing to be furious that Earthlings may now attempt to travel to the new planet. ‘Why did you have to have the telly on so fucking loud?’, they say”.
The transmission concludes with the lifeforms stating that they’re ‘off out for a bit’ and they ‘don’t know when they’ll be back’.
Last Thursday’s “Day Without Immigrants” work stoppages, which closed hundreds of restaurants, grocery stores, garages, retail shops, and other businesses, offered a taste of the capacity for militant action wielded by immigrant America.
Led in many cities by Latino activists calling for a “huelga general,” (General Strike) the February 16 coast-to-coast walkouts augur well for an even larger set of strikes and demonstrations, including a March 8 “Day Without a Woman” and quite possibly a May Day general strike, already endorsed by one of the Service Employees International Union’s biggest and most active California locals….

…The energy and upheaval unleashed by the Trump administration’s assault on Muslims, Latinos, and other immigrants, documented or not, has been directed toward a restoration of their rights and dignity, toward the family reunions and free passage into our country that have been happily broadcast from airports all across the country—and rightly so.

Official Statement From Tom Goldtooth, of The Indigenous Environmental Network:
We are appalled by today’s forced evacuations of indigenous people at the Camp at Standing Rock, they are a violent and unnecessary infringement on the constitutional right of water protectors to peacefully protest and exercise their freedom of speech. It hinders the camp clean up process and creates confusion and chaos that puts the Missouri River at risk of pollution from construction and camping debris.
Today’s expulsion is a continuation of a centuries old practice, where the U.S. Government forcefully removes Indigenous people from our lands and territories.

We urge supporters of the water protectors to continue to resist this travesty by organizing mass mobilizations, distributed actions, speaking out against the violations of the Treaty rights of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and the Seven Council Fires of the Great Sioux Nation, and continuing to source up the capacity for litigation and grassroots organizing against the Dakota Access pipeline.
Our hearts are not defeated. The closing of the camp is not the end of a movement or fight, it is a new beginning.
They cannot extinguish the fire that Standing Rock started. It burns within each of us. We will rise, we will resist, and we will thrive.
We are sending loving thoughts to the water protectors along the banks of the Cannonball River, today. May everyone be as safe as can be. #noDAPL

When you walk through the streets of Madrid or simply go to work the next 14, 15 and 16 March you may see some fancy cars, we assume they’ll be black, big, with tinted glass and reinforced to endure bomb attacks.
Maybe in some hotel or restaurant of the expensive ones you will spot some men that we suppose will go well dressed, jacketed, corked and with their hair well cut. But you would not suspect that they are death-dealing, that they are warlords.
They will be in Madrid making the inhabitants of our city ashamed. During those days Madrid will become the world capital of ”legal” arms trafficking (will the illegal arms trade be here, taking advantage? We do not know, but we can assume …).
14, 15 and 16 March 2017the HOMSEC arms fair will be held in Madrid . It is sponsored by the Atenea Group, which we have already mentioned on several occasions, highlighting its military leadership, its previous involvement in the 23-F attempted Fascist Coup and its contacts with the PP.
Its objective is to sell weapons, to the highest bidder. May Madrid host the institutional sellers (or perhaps not) of arms so that, comfortably, taking advantage of Madrid’s hospitality, they can contact, exchange news, needs, inventions and proposals? Will millions of € move on armaments? Possibly.
It will be the sixth time, 5 fairs have already taken place in Madrid. But almost no one has heard about it. That is the key for death-dealing, to go unnoticed. Continue reading dis-ARM Madrid: NO NO NO to the HOMSEC Arms Fair in Madrid
