It is not only the fauna that they attempt to destroy (thousands of species of animals and communities that have been thrived before the advance of Capital and ‘civilization’.
TIPNIS is located between the north of Cochabamba Dept. and the south of Beni. From the year 2000 to 2012, there were nine protest marches through the territory, demanding that those in Power respect their self-determination and not interfere in their behavior with the natural environment. This place has a lot of diversity as far as nature is concerned, and therefore is attractive to exploiters.
While Morales was enacting the new law, in the streets of Trinidad indigenous of the TIPNIS, environmental activists and settlers marched against Law 266 because they consider that the highway will only allow the expansion of the coca crops. According to the latest report of theOficina de las Naciones Unidas Contra la Droga y el Delito (UNODC),United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), these illegal sowings grew by 150 per cent from 2015 to 2016.
In October 2011, with the arrival of thousands of TIPNIS defenders, a law was approved which grants intangibility to the protected area. However, those in Power approved this past Tuesday [August] 8 a law that removes the intangibility of TIPNIS.
Two activists have come forward and admitted to some of the multiple acts of eco-sabotage against the Dakota Access Pipeline in Spring 2017.
Several of these incidents had been previously hidden from the public. Much of the sabotage took place with minimal equipment and training, and during broad daylight.
The women have come forward in the hope that others will support and be inspired by their actions.
They have currently been arrested on a lesser charge, and the FBI is investigating. Deep Green Resistance is reaching out via our Political Prisoner / Prisoner of War Support Group and aims to provide whatever assistance possible.
This is a developing story and more news will be coming soon. Press release follows:
The Dakota Access Pipeline is an issue that affects this entire nation and the people that are subject to its rule. With DAPL we have seen incredible issues regarding the rule of law, indigenous sovereignty, land seizures, state sanctioned brutality, as well as corporate protections and pardons for their wrongdoings. To all those that continue to be subjected to the government’s injustices, we humbly stand with you, and we ask now that you stand with us.

“El buque ‘Ribera Del Duero Knutsen’ de Gas Natural levantó un cargamento en el pase Sabine el 9 de julio y lo entregó a Cartagena, España, el 21 de julio”.
Al alba del 21 de julio, un gigantesco petrolero de gas natural líquido (GNL) apareció por la niebla en el puerto de Cartagena en Murcia. Nada sorprendente… Sólo que era el primero de cientos de cargamentos de frack gas de los Estados Unidos destinados por GNF para europa, y el final de un camino de crímenes contra el clima, el planeta y la humanidad.
Frack Gas (de esquisto) es el mismo que el gas normal, sólo que es hasta 3 veces más letal que el carbón para el clima. Esto es debido a que su extracción requiere fracturar el esquisto en miles de pozos pequeños con sustancias químicas ultra tóxicas que causan fugas masivas de metano (ver nota al pie 1).
Ahora, con la orden ejecutiva de Trump, todas las pretensiones de control del metano, mitigación del cambio climático, protección del agua o del medio ambiente han sido suprimidas en una mezcla tóxica de falso patriotismo, corrupción e insaciable avaricia.
(Véase la nota de pie 2)
Debido a la falta de control, los subsidios ocultos y el dinero ‘gratis’ hay un exceso de gas de fracking en los EE.UU. El plan es forzarlo a Europa, incluso con una pérdida de dinero masiva y con daños climáticos incalculables, como parte de su guerra comercial y armamentística contra Rusia, que suministra el 34% del gas europeo.
Toda una serie de plantas de licuefacción se están lanzando a la operación en Louisiana y Texas, hasta ahora tres enormes líneas están en operación en Sabine Pass, con secciones enteras dedicadas a Gas Natural Fenosa de España y Shell que han firmado insensatamente contratos de 20 años con la cláusula ”hay que pagar el gas si usted lleva el gas o no “. Continue reading El Frack Gas de Trump llega a España via GNF→
Early on 21st July a giant Liquid Natural Gas Tanker (LNG) appeared out of the mist in Cartagena harbour. Nothing surprising, you may say. Only that it was the 1st of hundreds of GNF’s Frack-Gas cargoes from the USA.
Frack-Gas is the same as normal gas, only that it’s up to 3 times more lethal than coal for the climate. Because extracting it requires fracturing shale in thousands of small wells with ultra toxic chemicals causing massive methane leaking.(see footnote 1)
Now by Trump’s executive order all pretence at methane control, climate change mitigation, water or environmental protection have been abolished in a toxic mix of false patriotism, corruption and insatiable greed. (see footnote 2)
Due to lack of control, hidden subsidies and free money there is a glut of frack gas in the US. The plan is to force it on Europe, even at a massive loss and with incalculable climate damage, as part of their trade and arms war against Russia, which supplies 30% of European gas.
A whole range of liquefaction plants are being rushed into operation in Louisiana and Texas, until now three huge lines are in operation in Sabine Pass, with whole sections devoted to Spain’s Gas Natural Fenosa and Shell who have perhaps foolishly signed 20 year ‘pay up whether you take the gas or not’ contracts.
The battle against extreme energy is intensifying. Fracking firm Cuadrilla began construction of a super-sized hydraulic fracturing well pad at Little Plumpton, Lancashire in January.
They have been been met by daily resistance from local protectors who know the water, land and air will be poisoned if they do not act. People fear their peaceful rural neighbourhood being turned into an industrialised gas field.
Your Taxes Subsidize Dirty Oil Corporations By $5.3 TRILLION
Source via trueactivist.com A recent paper released by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) should shock all of us who believe in a green future based on renewable energy.
Despite stark warnings from scientists, fossil fuel subsidies continue to grow: this year alone, it is estimated that dirty coal and energy corporations will receive a staggering $5.3 trillion from governments worldwide.
To put this into perspective, the sum is more than the healthcare budget of all the countries in the world combined. It works out at $600 million per hour, $10 million per minute, and $200,000 per second. Just imagine what we could do with that kind of money.
Before beginning, a note is in order. No one is claiming Kirk’s analysis is scientifically or statistically valid. Nevertheless, it is a useful tool for understanding the factors climate change deniers base their beliefs on.
Kirk ends her discussion with perhaps the most cogent and useful advice of all. “Be nice,” she says. “None of the commenters lauded the effectiveness of flaming arguments, shaming, or condescending treatment. Letting go of a long-held belief is hard.We can support people and give them rational, relatable reasons to appreciate the science of climate change. We have the evidence and the credibility on our side. Let’s not squander the high ground.” Amen to that, Karin. Ready to learn more? Let’s go.
Family Values Most Common Source Of Science Resistant Beliefs
This shouldn’t surprise anyone. Most people tend to adopt the worldview of their parents, family, and social group. Children of Democrats tend to be Democrats themselves. The same is true of Republicans. Religious beliefs and ethnic mores tend are transmitted from parents to children. The following comments were typical.
