by Lawrence Wittner36 CommentsIn recent weeks, the people of the world have been treated to yet another display of the kind of nuclear insanity that has broken out periodically ever since 1945 and the dawn of the nuclear era.
“The fact that both Trump and Kim are being ‘messed with’ despite their possession of very powerful armed forces, including nuclear weapons, seems to have eluded both men, who continue their deadly game of nuclear threat and bluster.”
On April 11, Donald Trump, irked by North Korea’s continued tests of nuclear weapons and missiles, tweeted that “North Korea is looking for trouble.” If China does not “help,” then “we will solve the problem without them.”
BY MR. MILITANT NEGRO May 1st is a day of solidarity with other exploited people across the world and within our communities. This is a call to reclaim and rebuild the history and struggle against oppression with an anti-capitalist gathering, celebration and resistance.
This year we will commemorate those who fought with their lives for an 8 hour workday in Chicago over 100 years ago, and the innocent anarchists who lost their lives at the hand of the law.
On May 1st 2017 we will stand against capitalism, colonialism, borders and the state; we will stand for freedom, community and self-determination as we continue the struggles of workers started so many years ago.
Capitalism continues to steal land, life, culture and language from in the name of profit. The empire it has built on stolen land keeps workers under the boot of the bosses, the unemployed under the boot of the state, as our labour increases their profit margins and we merely survive and dream of the lives we can live in our worn-out bodies come retirement.
On May 1st, 2017 we will gather as anti-capitalists against the systems of oppression that commodify our basic needs and force us to work for our daily bread. The food from the fields and trees and the houses on the streets have all been packaged into marketable products and fenced off from all who cannot pay the price.

Gas Natural Fenosa (GNF) has a contract to receive hundreds of cargoes of the Fracking Gas glut in the US which is causing innumerable cancers, poisoned aquifers and has produced a methane cloud visible from space that greatly exacerbates the global climate crisis.
The GNF contracts havbe been signed for 20 years beginning in August / Sept. 2017. But we have found out that some shipments will arrive beforehand during test period. The destination is in secret but will probably be to Barcelona, which has most storage space, or Valencia.
Flood of US Fracking Gas due to arrive in Spain
GNF has already chartered 4 ‘LNG Knutsen’ tankers to do the business. One of them, the new ‘La Mancha Knutsen’, has just left Algeciras (30 March) for Sabine Pass in Louisiana, where the gas is to be collected in the form of LNG (Liquified Natural Gas)
Faced with these facts, it is more than preobable that they will start with their immoral and criminal Frack.Gas business that seeks private profit in destroying the climate and the world biosphere, and poisons the air we breathe.
Gas Natural Fenosa (GNF) té contracte per rebre centenars de carregaments del Gas LNG, gairebé tot el fracking que està arrasant EUA, causant innombrables càncers, aqüífers enverinats i un núvol de metà visible de l’espai que agreuja la crisi del clima mundial.
Els contractes de GNF estan signats per 20 anys començant a l’agost / setembre. del 2017. Però hem esbrinat que alguns carregaments arribaran abans com en període de proves. La destinació queda en secret però serà probablement al port de Barcelona que té molt espai d’emmagatzematge (o qualsevol de les 7 plantes de regasificació).
GNF ha reservat ja almenys 4 vaixells tipus ‘LNG Knutsen’ per fer el negoci. Un d’ells, el nou ‘la Mancha Knutsen’, acaba de sortir d’Algeciras (30 de març, 2017) rumb a Sabine Pass a Louisiana, on es recull el gas en forma de LNG per al contracte de Gas Natural.
UPDATE:::Aún no llega el Gas del Fracking. El barco La Mancha Knutsen se desvió y el próximo peligro es al Cadiz Knutsen#NoAlFrackGasDelTrump
STOP a la inundación del Gas de Fracking que Gas Natural Fenosa trae a España

Gas Natural Fenosa (GNF) tiene contrato para recibir centenares de cargamentos del Gas LNG, casi todo del Fracking que está arrasando EEUU, causando innumerables cánceres, acuíferos envenenados y una nube de metano visible del espacio que agrava la crisis del clima mundial.
Los contratos de GNF están firmados para 20 años empezando en Agosto/Sept. del 2017. Pero hemos averiguado que algunos cargamentos llegarán antes como en periodo de pruebas. La destinación queda en secreto pero será probablemente al puerto de Barcelona que tiene mucho espacio de almacenamiento (o a cualquier de las 7 plantas de regasificación).
GNF ha fletado ya al menos 4 barcos tipo ‘LNG Knutsen’ para hacer el negocio. Uno de ellos, el nuevo ‘La Mancha Knutsen’, acaba de salir de Algeciras (30 de marzo, 2017) rumbo a Sabine Pass en Louisiana, dónde se recoge el gas en forma de LNG para el contrato de Gas Natural. Esta información viene del sitio Vessel Finder AQUI…ver destination. Llegada a Sabine Pass 20 de Abril.

Ante estos hechos, son fundados los temores para pensar que van a empezar ya con su negocio inmoral que promueve los crímenes que están arrasando el clima y la biosfera mundial, envenenando el aire que respiramos.
Si es así que el metanero La Mancha Knutsen va a recoger el primero cargamento de gas de fracking para GNF, llegará a España entre el día 10 y día 20 de Mayo, que nos deja tiempo para averiguar a qué puerto viene.
www.reclaimthepower.org.uk Today 40 activists dressed as animals invaded PR firm Bell Pottinger in central London to expose their ties with fracking. Today’s activities closed the national ‘Break the Chain’ fortnight of action by Reclaim the Power .
The activists staged an animal-themed intervention of the Bell Pottinger offices, with zebras throwing leaves, monkeys spreading animal manure and a squid spraying ‘ink’ on the windows. The scene was left in chaos with messages reading “Break the Chain” and “We said No”.
by Skyler Simmons / Earth First! NewswireCommunities in upstate New York are celebrating the recent announcement from the Department of Environmental Conservation that the Northern Access Pipeline will not receive the necessary permits for construction. The $500 million pipeline, proposed by National Fuel Gas, would have brought fracked gas from Pennsylvania to upstate NY.
An announcement from the DEC on April 7 stated, “After an in-depth review of the proposed Northern Access Pipeline project and following three public hearings and the consideration of over 5,700 comments, DEC has denied the permit due to the project’s failure to avoid adverse impacts to wetlands, streams and fish and other wildlife habitat. “We are confident that this decision supports our state’s strict water quality standards that all New Yorkers depend on.”
While the DEC was the one that rejected the permit, the real heroes are the thousands of people that turned out to rallies and public hearings to put grassroots pressure on the government to stop the pipeline. As was noted in a previous article on the Earth First! Newswire, though the resistance at Standing Rock ultimately failed to stop the the Dakota Access Pipeline, the nationwide movement it sparked has successfully defeated numerous pipelines in the past year, as well as inspiring a new a wave protest encampments. The residents of New York and the watersheds they are protecting appear to be the latest benefactor of this powerful wave of pipeline resistance.
