The Movement for the Freedom of the Defenders of Water and Life of San Pedro Tlanixco, Tenango del Valle, Mexico State, denounces the sentences given to our indigenous Nahua brothers and sister, Lorenzo Sánchez Berriozábal, Marco Antonio Pérez González and Dominga González Martinez.As you remember, since 1989, San Pedro Tlanixco has been defending the water that is born from our forests.  We are defending this water against the capitalist hydra, taking shape here as national and transnational flower-growing corporations in Villa Guerrero that have been protected by the bad governments.  We have been defending our territory because they have imposed a private highway that goes from Tenando del Valle to Ixtapan de la Sal, causing our town to be split in half.

On April 1st, 2003, the president of the Texcaltenco river system and representative of flower-growing corporations of Villa Guerrero died due to a fall.  Since this day, our community has lived through constant attacks on the part of the bad governments and the paid media that have spread the false headline that we had lynched this man.  The truth is that he and his people were in our territory because they wanted to take our water.   It was there when, due to not knowing the trails, he fell and lost his life.

Long struggle still Blocks Nuclear Waste Cemetery in Villar de Cañas, Spain

It all began in Jan 2010  at 23:56 at night, in the little village of  Villar de Cañas when a council meeting voted in favour of a Nuclear Waste Cemetery which was not even on the agenda,
Spain finally had a place which agreed to host its high level Nuclear Waste, for thousands of years. But the battle against the cemetery had only just begun.
  Laguna del Hito.. its protected habitat protection has been abolished by the PP courts
Last 25 Nov the 3rd Assembly of the Iberian Antinuclear Movement (MIA) was  held nearby in Cuenca to highlight the risk that the nearby construction of the ATC in Villar de Cañas would entail. If there is a Nuclear Cemetery available it would boost the Nuclear Industry and could delay even further the closing down of dangerous obsolete plants.
In Sept 2017 the local Castilla-La Mancha government again rejected the Centralized Nuclear Cemetery (ATC)  pending a new environmental resolution by the Ministry, which they said  “must be negative.”

“We have made it clear that we want a different energy model; we do not want the promotion of nuclear energy and we are committed to renewables. The ATC is not compatible with a natural space, “they argued.
For five years renewable energy has been severely blocked in Spain due to  disgraceful laws by the corrupt PP to favour the fossil sector and finally the EU is set to fine Spain for its blatant ‘Tax on using the Sun’ policy.
Several geological reports from the Nuclear Safety Council (CSN) indicate that this nuclear cemetery would be located on unsuitable land due to its risk of subsidence.
The Government delegate in Castilla-La Mancha, José Julián Gregorio, has defended the installation of the ATC in Villar de Cañas and has assured the public that this infrastructure “is necessary for Spain”. “Everyone will have to do what they think is convenient”, he pointed out.

Según el sitio web analista Kpler el barco la PSKOV es ”de Gas Natural’. Pero no figura en la lista de metaneros de GNF, al menos que fuera fletado últimamente.

US Millionaires Pass $1.500,000,000,000 Tax Cut for Rich

Every year wealth and power are concentrated in fewer and fewer hands.. HOW CAN WE STOP THIS MADNESS NOW?

“It’s immoral that many hardworking families will pay a higher tax bill or lose access to critical services like healthcare so that some CEO can get a bigger bonus and buy a bigger yacht.”     by  ¡ .. 34 Comments

 

By a vote of 227-205, Congressmen on Thursday passed a tax bill that would permanently cut taxes for massive corporations, reward the extremely wealthy by eliminating the estate tax, trigger billions of dollars in automatic cuts to Medicare, and raise taxes on millions of middle- and working-class families.

Activist Facing 21 Years for Turning Off Keystone Pipeline’s Valve

      from Creative Resistance

Foster says he deliberately broke the law by turning off a valve of the Keystone pipeline in North Dakota because he felt action was necessary.

In October of last year, the group Climate Direct Action turned off a valve on the Keystone Pipeline. Last week, activist Michael Foster was convicted for being involved in the action.

If North Dakota courts, where he is being tried now, find him guilty, he could be facing up to 21 years in prison. The sentencing is set for January.

‘If we don’t stop, we can’t correct … it will be too late for this generation.’ – Michael Foster, activist

Despite that hefty prison sentence hanging over his head, the former mental health counsellor from Seattle is still speaking out because he says he wasn’t allowed to tell his full side at his trial. Continue reading Activist Facing 21 Years for Turning Off Keystone Pipeline’s Valve
