“We’ve Worked real hard to Loot the Country” PP general secretary

This is what we used to call a Freudian slip.. when your subconscious  pops out the wrong word and you admit your crimes by mistake.loot  1

Maria Dolores, also President of Castilla meant to say ‘lift up the country (sacar)’ and instead said ‘loot and destroy the country’ (saquear.. as in ‘they sacked Troy’.)

It’s the second time she’s done it, and very timely too, because the latest scandal is that Rodrigo Rato, ex IMF President and guru of The ruling PP, is on the list of 705 elite politicians, business leaders and royals accused of stealing countless billions for nearly 40 years, and legalizing their offshore fortunes in a contrived ”fiscal amnesty”.rata.jpg,q1369403944.pagespeed.ce.CUvXncFVu4_foro

Rato was actually arrested and spent up to 3 HOURS in symbolic luxury custody. Continue reading “We’ve Worked real hard to Loot the Country” PP general secretary

Reserve Deputy Who Killed Eric Harris Pleads Not Guilty, Is Allowed to Take Vacation in Bahamas

BY: BREANNA EDWARDS

Robert Bates put in a not-guilty plea on Tuesday in response to a second-degree-manslaughter charge, holding fast to his claim that he mistook his gun for his Taser when he killed Eric Harris in a sting operation, NBC News reports.

Bates has a hearing scheduled for July 2, but in the meantime, the judge is allowing the 73-year-old retired insurance executive to go on his previously planned vacation to the Bahamas.

“Whether intended or not, Mr. Bates’ vacationing in the Bahamas at this time sends a message of apathy with respect to the shooting…

Refugees from NATO’s wars drowning in the Med.. ¡no borders no nations!!

An African migrant is lowered down from a border fence by a Spanish Civil Guard as fellow migrants assist, at the border between Morocco and Spain's north African enclave of Melilla during the latest attempt to cross into Spanish territory, April 3, 2014. Spain has more than doubled the strength of security forces at Melilla, after about 500 people stormed its fences in the biggest border rush for years earlier this month. Immigrants from all over Africa regularly dare the razor-wire fences of Spanish enclaves Ceuta and Melilla, which are surrounded by Moroccan territory and sea.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

A senselessly cruel policy

Monday 20th April 2015

HOW many more desperate people have to drown in the Mediterranean before the European Union and its member states rethink their callous sink-or-swim policy towards refugees?

Around 3,500 men, women and children perished last year and the weekend tragedy has pushed this year’s total up to half that already and we’re still in April.

The EU ended its Mare Nostrum rescue operation last October after some states claimed in was unaffordable.

Earth First!..116 Environmental Activists Murdered in 2014

Killing Nature’s Defenders: Study Finds Global Surge in Murders of Environmental Activists… How Many More?

Read the report, “Deadly Environment”   Para la versión española, clique aquí.

josé da Silva

New report shows killings of environmental activists are increasing, with indigenous communities hardest hit. We shine a spotlight on Honduras – the most dangerous country to be an environmental defender

 Each week at least two people are being killed for taking a stand against environmental destruction. Some are shot by police during protests, others gunned down by hired assassins. As companies go in search of new land to exploit, increasingly people are paying the ultimate price for standing in their way.

We found that at least 116 environmental activists were murdered in 2014 – that’s almost double the number of journalists killed in the same period. A shocking 40 % of victims were indigenous, with most people dying amid disputes over hydropower, mining and agri-business. Nearly three-quarters of the deaths we found information on were in Central and South America.

Globally, it’s likely that the true death toll is higher. Many of the murders we know about occurred in remote villages or deep within the jungle, where communities lack access to communications and the media. It’s likely many more killings are escaping public records.

As well as documenting fatalities, How Many More? analyses global trends in violence and intimidation, with testimony from activists who have suffered threats, attacks, and criminalization for standing in the way of so-called ‘development’. In a disturbing trend some are even being tried as terrorists, portrayed as enemies of the state.

We also shone a spotlight on Honduras, the most dangerous country per capita to be an environmental activist for the last five years, with 101 deaths between 2010 and 2014.

They follow me. They threaten to kill me, to kidnap me, they threaten my family. That is what we face. – Berta Cáceres, a Honduran activist and winner of the 2015 Goldman Environmental Prize.

The case of Berta Cáceres is emblematic of the systematic targeting of environmental defenders in Honduras. Since 2013, three of her colleagues have been killed for resisting the Agua Zarca hydro-dam on the Gualcarque River, which threatens to cut off a vital water source for hundreds of indigenous Lenca people.

Fabricated criminal charges have been filed against her, and two of her children have left Honduras out of concerns for their safety.

The true authors of these crimes – a powerful nexus of corporate and state interests – are escaping unpunished.

How many more MADJ

These three indigenous Tolupán leaders were killed by gunmen attacking an anti-mining protest in northern Honduras. They had received death threats warning them to desist from their efforts to protect the environment. 

We aren’t going to give up the struggle to keep our natural resources clean and in the hands of the community. There are those who want easy money by tearing up the land, contaminating the water.

We have been here respecting the earth that gives us our food and we intend to stay here fighting for our right to feed ourselves. – Member of indigenous Tolupán group from Locomapa.
