El dueño del huerto okupado de la Prosperitat recibe $3.000.000.000 el año de EEUU por ‘servicios militares’

El día 21 de Junio el colectivo del huerto y jardín okupado  en el barrio obrero de la Prosperitat en Barcelona fue amenazado con desalojo, este vez por parte del dueño nuevo, el fondo buitre , Cerberus que pertenece al mega buitre Steve Feinberg. Cerberus está preparando el ‘mobbing’ y el desalojo de miles de pisos comprados en lotes en barrios populares para luego gentrificar y revender a precios exorbitantes.

Sin embargo, a lo mejor para hacer relaciones públicas,  no se ha atrevido meterse con l*s okupas de La Prosperitat. El caso ha sido suspendido temporalmente y el  huerto sigue desafiando el ‘buitre más malvado del mundo’.

El huerto, que ha sido okupado durante 3 años, (antes fue abandonado 10 años) es ”un modelo de funcionamiento libertario” y cuenta con el apoyo unánime del barrio entero, desde el ayuntamiento al gato de la vecina, y es también un ‘Ágora’, un espacio libre para todo tipo de actividades.

El primer intento de desalojo fallado fue por parte del BBVA.. el banco buitre, que, a pasar de ser rescatado con 12 mil millones de dinero público sigue abusando con desalojas masivas, especulación descarada y prácticas nocivas, resistido por compañer*s de la PAH. la Obra Social y los Okupas. BBVA incluso da apoyo a la organización mafiosa llamada Desokupa, formada por sicarios de los desahucios que se dedican a desalojar ilegalmente. El huerto fue vendido como parte de un ‘paquete’ a Cerberus, el fondo de 4,000,000,000 dolares del judio de Nueva York, Steve Feinberg, amigo personal de Donald Trump, . (La palabra ‘Cerberus’ significa un monstruo mítico Griego de 3 cabezas!). En 2018, el Donald Trump nombró al multimillonario  Feinberg para dirigir  la Junta de Inteligencia del Presidente

Con la compra desde Banc Sabadell de dos carteras inmobiliarias valoradas en 3.900 millones de euros por Cerberus Capital Management, (tras una quita del 57%), Santander (1.535 millones y 35.700 activos inmobiliarios) y BBVA (su cartera inmobiliaria por 4.000 millones) , Cerberus ya ha gastado cerca a 20,000 millones en inmobiliaria en España, y tiene un nivel ahora casi igual como Blackstone, el líder de los 32 fondos buitre que comen nuestras casas, con más que 100,000 ‘activos’.

Cerberus gana miles de millones aprovechando la muerte y la miseria como ”contratista” de la CIA en las guerras de Iraq, Siria, Afganistán, etcétera y invierte en propriedad muy barato en Europa, mucha de ella robado del público por no poder pagar hipotecas abusivos. Mucho del  dinero viene de su filial DynCorp como contratista militar, y indirectamente del monopolio financiero de los EEUU que puede ‘imprimir’ hasta $ trillones  porque todos tienen que negociar en dolares.

El dueño y CEO de Cerberus, Steve Feinberg, ha aplaudido públicamente este ‘gran oportunidad en Europa’  para especular o simplemente recoger alquileres para siempre.

Por otro lado, el nuevo gobierno semi-socialista ha introducido una ley para frenar la espiral de precios de los alquileres.

Como advirtió la Fundación Española de Cajas de Ahorros (FUNCAS),’‘ los fondos de capital privado con grandes inversiones han empezado a preocuparse de que muchas familias españolas, que se ganan la vida con trabajos mal pagados, sin seguridad, sean incapaces de pagar las altas rentas de hoy. Muchos de los que no pueden pagar ya han sido desalojados de los apartamentos que son propiedad de los fondos.”.

Line 3 Direct Action stops Tar Pipeline in Minnesota Victory

Direct Action in Minnesota as Line 3 Pipeline Approval Reversed

Resist Line 3 @ResistLine3

Application for permit from Great River Energy to build a transition line to power @Enbridge Line 3 pump station. Work on this site has been shut down for over 4 hours!

See Resist Line 3’s other Tweets

The language in the permits states that the the power lines are for Enbridge’s proposed project that’s part of a replacement project.

“115 kilovolt transmission line that is needed to provide electric power to a new petroleum pump station being proposed by Enbridge Energy. The Enbridge pump station is part of a pipeline replacement project.“

That proposed pump-station is intended to be attached to the new tar sands Line 3 pipeline that as of Monday morning is no longer approved in Minnesota.

While water protectors took action to shut down Line 3 construction, the paper war continued in the state as the Minnesota Court of Appeals agreed with a coalition of tribes, indigenous rights groups and environmental groups with an opinion which stated,

“We agree that the FEIS [Final Environmental Impact Statement] is inadequate because it does not address the potential impact of an oil spill into the Lake Superior watershed. Accordingly, we reverse the commission’s adequacy determination and remand for further proceedings consistent with this decision.“

Enbridge stated their disappointment in a post on their website but also pointed out that the court had sided with them on eight of the nine disputes. Enbridge ended their response post by saying,

“We are in the process of a detailed analysis of the court’s decision and will consult with the MPUC and other state agencies about next steps.“

The courts decision wouldn’t  have stopped the construction the three water protectors took direct action to stop.

A press release from the Ginew collective which describes itself as a, “a grassroots, frontlines effort led by indigenous women to protect Anishinaabe territory from the destruction of Enbridge’s Line 3 tar sands project,” gave statements on why the three water protectors took action.

Frances Weatherall stated,

“Enbridge pretends to follow the process while it is busy bulldozing through our forests and wetlands,”

Frances’ sister, Mollie Weatherall, locked to same machine said,

“This is a years-long plan to send more dirty tar sands through Minnesota, don’t be fooled into thinking they won’t destroy as much as they can while they wait for their final state permits,”

Jonas, the third person who took direct action stated,

“This is a step towards decolonization, Enbridge is carving up the planet and our government doesn’t care. Today it’s my turn to put my body between the planet I want to protect and the attacks against our water, our climate, and Native sovereignty.”

The water protectors who shut down the construction site prepping ground were arrested and released from jail June 4, 2019. A bail fund was organized to support the water protectors with legal fees.

Northfield Against Line 3

about 2 weeks ago

They’re free!! These are the three water protectors who stood up for the planet yesterday by locking themselves to machinery to stop its operation in building line 3. We are so thankful that they are out of jail and back with their friends and comrades. However they still will have legal and court costs in the coming weeks. Please donate to their legal support fund here paypal.me/nfldal3 .

The Ginew collective’s statement also pointed out that this ongoing construction continues despite Enbridge not having water crossing permits,

“Minnesota has not issued the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) or DNR permits required for Line 3 construction across wetlands or water crossings. Minnesota announced the 401 water quality certification process will not be complete until fall 2019.“

These actions and decisions are just the latest in a ongoing resistance in Minnesota against Enbridge’s tar sands oil project. This latest direct action, comes on the heels of years of multifaceted resistance in court rooms and in the forests of Minnesota to #StopLine3.

Mass Hunger Strikes end in Victory over Fascist Terror.. 8 dead

reportaje en castellano abajo

After 200 days of incomparable historical resistance, the hunger strikes in Kurdistan, Turkey and Europe have been declared over today

 We send our warmest revolutionary greetings to all comrades who took part in the hunger strike and the many resistance actions and congratulate the free peoples on this victory.

Ocalan in the past has declared long ceasefires with the Turkish State rejecting terrorism and separatism  in favour of ‘municipal anarchist’ communal ideas and feminist emancipation which have swept through the over 15 million Kurdish population.

On November 8, 2018 the Kurdish politician Leyla Güven had started her hunger strike to lift the total isolation against Abdullah Öcalan, the representative of the Kurdish people and philosophical thought leader of the revolution in Northeast Syria.

How Britain stole $45 trillion from India .. And lied about it.

by

There is a story that is commonly told in Britain that the colonisation of India – as horrible as it may have been – was not of any major economic benefit to Britain itself. If anything, the administration of India was a cost to Britain. So the fact that the empire was sustained for so long – the story goes – was a gesture of Britain’s benevolence.

New research by the renowned economist Utsa Patnaik – just published by Columbia University Press – deals a crushing blow to this narrative. Drawing on nearly two centuries of detailed data on tax and trade, Patnaik calculated that Britain drained a total of nearly $45 trillion from India during the period 1765 to 1938.

It’s a staggering sum. For perspective, $45 trillion is 17 times more than the total annual gross domestic product of the United Kingdom today. Continue reading “How Britain stole $45 trillion from India .. And lied about it.”

175 years in Jail for Revealing US War Crimes? Freedom for Assange!

 Where’s MSM outrage over persecution of Assange??

Some, to their credit, have spoken out against the relentless persecution of the white-haired Australian truth-teller.

But it’s nothing compared to the outrage that could and should be stirred. Most journalists in the west have stayed as silent as Trappist monks with sore throats, or actually taken the side of the authorities acting against Assange.

Just imagine, as I discussed here if Julian was a Russian dissident, being treated in the same way by the Russian authorities. Then we’d be seeing column after column in ‘serious newspapers’ urging people to join the ‘Free Assange’ campaign. Celebrities would be falling over themselves to show their support. There’d be calls for yet more sanctions to be imposed on Russia, and to be maintained until the ‘political prisoner’ was released. But who so far has come out in defense of Assange, save for Pamela Anderson and Roger Waters? Where are the great ‘human rights defenders’?

Also on rt.com Assange may spend the rest of his life in jail, he’s got a ‘HANGING judge’ – CIA whistleblowerLest we forget, the dominant neocon/Establishment liberal narrative about Assange was that he was a cowardly creep who fled from ‘rape charges’ to hide in the Ecuadorian Embassy.

Assange’s fears about being extradited to the US – the real reason he took refuge in the Embassy – were laughed at.

In 2010 Assange stated: “The big risk, the risk we have always been concerned about, is onwards extradition to the United States. And that seems to be increasingly likely.

Now that the indictments from the US have come, will those who rubbished Julian’s concerns have the good grace to admit they were wrong, and that his flight to the Ecuadorian Embassy was justified?

Among those who owe Assange an apology is Emma Arbuthnot, the senior district judge, who in February 2018 said she did not find Assange’s fears of extradition to the US were “reasonable.”

But they were, as yesterday’s events prove.

Regarding the Swedish angle, we know from leaked emails the pressure put on the Swedes by the British authorities not to drop the investigation into Assange. Don’t you dare get cold feet!!!” the Swedes were told.

It’s hard to believe that similar exhortations weren’t made again following Assange’s removal from the Ecuadorian Embassy and lo and behold on Monday it was announced that prosecutors in Sweden have asked the courts to detain Assange in absentia as part of an investigation into rape allegations.

Of course rape allegations are serious. Yet how many ‘liberal’ commentators have been talking or writing of Assange being “charged with rape” or “fleeing rape charges” or even call him “a rapist”- when it wasn’t factually correct?  The old legal principle ‘innocent until proven guilty’ is thrown out of the window when Assange is concerned. It’s not just a case of ‘guilty as charged’, with Assange it’s ‘guilty even though there has been no charge’.

The great ‘crime’ of Julian – and the reason he’ll probably never be at liberty again, was to pull back the curtain to show us what was behind it.

To reveal what our governments, which we pay for, were doing in our name. He exposed Western war crimes. He showed us what was really going on. He published information which we, as taxpayers, had every right to know. He was Tobermory, the talking cat, in Saki’s classic short-story.

Yet while Assange languishes in jail, and faces the prospect of spending the rest of his life behind bars, those who planned the most heinous of war crimes, such as the illegal invasion of Iraq which led to the deaths of one million people and the rise of the genocidal death cult Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS), go free.

Even if you think the founder of WikiLeaks should face some form of punishment or penalty for publishing leaked documents, you cannot honestly maintain that sentences of up to 175 years in jail are proportionate.

Assange is being destroyed to deter others from following in his path.

If journalists and politically-minded ‘celebrities’ stay silent on this great injustice, this crime against the profession they claim to represent, this crime against the truth and against common humanity, then they should kindly spare us their ‘outrage’ on other issues.

According to a recent count, just since the signing of the peace agreements in Colombia, in November 2016, 596 social leaders have been killed.

Ordóñez was murdered Monday night by a group of strangers in the department of Nariño, in southwestern Colombia, official sources said.

Rosero Ordóñez, 47 years old, was the representative of the Public Ministry of the town of Samaniego, in Nariño, and had previously warned she was receiving threats against her life.

According to a police report, the lawyer was approached by two hit men, who shot her at close range.

Although she was given first aid almost immediately, it was impossible to save his life, the reports said. The Attorney General of the Nation and the Ombudsman of Colombia, in a joint statement, lamented the crime.

“@PGN_COL and @DefensoriaCol condemn the crime against the person from Samaniego, Nariño. Statement attached”

Both institutions demanded that the government of Colombian President Ivan Duque “take urgent measures” to guarantee the lives of human rights defenders, as well as all social leaders.

Luis Eduardo Dagua, his body was found with clear signs of torture;

According to a recent count made last week, after the signing of the peace agreements in Colombia, in November 2016, there 139 former guerrilla fighters were killed. Also 31 relatives of ex-rebels have been killed, while 596 social leaders and 119 Indigenous people were murdered.

According to the non-governmental organization Programa Somos Defensores, from January to March, 25 more human rights defenders in Colombia were killed.

The US is blockading and subverting Venezuela to control it like Colombia.

COLOMBIA’S WOMEN: VICTIMS OF A COERCIVE PEACE

Plan Colombia Has Been a Nightmare for Women  Six women were raped every hour in Colombia during the first nine years of Plan Colombia. That figure was taken from a joint survey done by women’s rights organizations, which include Oxfam and other Colombian based groups. The study revealed that some 489,678 women were victims of some type of sexual violence, while 7,752 had been forced into prostitution between 2000-2009—what were integral years for the controversial deal.

As one more example, Colombian Indigenous and campesino leader Alicia Lopez Guisao was killed in Medellin

Facebook gives your estimated Credit details to Phone Companies

Facebook helps phone companies gather user data, including their ‘creditworthiness’ – report

Facebook has supplied phone companies with customers’ private data without their knowledge or consent, and even helped those companies use Facebook behavior to evaluate users’ creditworthiness, documents reportedly show.

The social network supplied data on location, interests, and friend groupings to phone carriers and manufacturers without users’ permission – data that went far beyond mere technical specs.

Users’ activity on Facebook, Instagram and even Messenger was fair game for data-mining, and the platform encouraged and even assisted over 100 global telecoms to use customers’ data for purposes including evaluating their creditworthiness, according to documents seen by the Intercept, which suggest the program is still going on.
