from… Dandelion Salad ..Filmmaker Regis Tremblay states what few others dare to say. Humanity is on the brink of extinction! Nuclear power is not safe. 48 of America’s nuclear power plants are leaking and there is no way to get rid of nuclear waste.
America’s reckless provocations of both Russia and China, two nuclear-armed countries, risk a nuclear holocaust from which no one survives. Climate change and global warming, if not mitigated immediately, will end the human experiment on earth sooner rather than later.
A shocking documentary that traces the origins of U.S. genocides, military interventions and wars from the 15th century when the white, colonial explorers first came to the Americas to the very present. American Exceptionalism, Manifest Destiny, and the right to claim the earth and its resources as their own are the beliefs that are the foundation of American foreign policy in the 21st Century that has humanity on the brink of extinction.

The racist dictator, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is trying every means to blackmail and bribe the US into creating the Trump requested ”safe zone” in Syria by destroying the only progressive multi ethnic, multi religion, non sexist area in the whole of the Middle East, .. Rojava.
Blackmail.. by threats to leave Nato, to join the Russia/Iran/China axis, to expose the US creation and financing of ISIS.. etc, and Bribery.. by promising to conclude the huge new arms purchases, by perhaps blocking the Russian South Stream gas pipeline, etc.
The Plan is to effectively annexe the north of Syria as a ‘safe zone’ run by his own paid jihadi proxies,the FSA. Russia seems now to reluctantly go along with this, and excludes the SDF and Kurds from all negotiations.
Radio signals emerging from the newly-discovered ‘TRAPPIST-1’ planetary system have been decoded by linguistic experts at NASA, confirming the existence of extraterrestrial lifeforms who want ‘no part of Earth’s bullshit’.
There was great excitement from astronomy enthusiasts earlier this week following the discovery of seven planets in the ‘habitable’ zone of a nearby solar system; planets which seemingly had all the criteria for supporting life.
However, this was eroded somewhat today when NASA announced that lifeforms on the third of these planets seemed to be ‘standing very still as if not to be noticed’, much like how someone would hide behind the sofa in their house if a TV licence inspector or debt collector came to the door.
After further radio probing, a signal from the planet was received and later translated, and appears to show that the alien lifeforms were well aware of the existence of Earth.
“The transmission begins ‘Oh fucking bollocky bollocks’” said a spokesperson for NASA, addressing a press conference.
“‘They’ve found us, well that’s just tickety-fucking-boo’. The conversation then breaks down into a series of back-and-forth arguments where the aliens appear to blame each other for being found, with one very vocal creature appearing to be furious that Earthlings may now attempt to travel to the new planet. ‘Why did you have to have the telly on so fucking loud?’, they say”.
The transmission concludes with the lifeforms stating that they’re ‘off out for a bit’ and they ‘don’t know when they’ll be back’.
Last Thursday’s “Day Without Immigrants” work stoppages, which closed hundreds of restaurants, grocery stores, garages, retail shops, and other businesses, offered a taste of the capacity for militant action wielded by immigrant America.
Led in many cities by Latino activists calling for a “huelga general,” (General Strike) the February 16 coast-to-coast walkouts augur well for an even larger set of strikes and demonstrations, including a March 8 “Day Without a Woman” and quite possibly a May Day general strike, already endorsed by one of the Service Employees International Union’s biggest and most active California locals….
IWW strikes Victory in the Lawrence, MA, textile strike in 1912 secured the organization’s reputation for organizing immigrant … The Labor World 09-16-1906 ….. This has been the first major win in Prince Rupert for theI.W.W., Industrial Worker, 10-27-1909.
…The energy and upheaval unleashed by the Trump administration’s assault on Muslims, Latinos, and other immigrants, documented or not, has been directed toward a restoration of their rights and dignity, toward the family reunions and free passage into our country that have been happily broadcast from airports all across the country—and rightly so.

STELaR Weapons Research Centre site in Carlton Occupied
Peace protectors are presently occupying the Carlton site of the future Lockheed Martin weapons research lab.
Now an empty building and lot on the site of the former Women’s Hospital near the University of Melbourne, building will soon begin to make it the largest Lockheed Martin weapons research centre outside of the United States.
The weapons research centre will be known as the STELaR Lab (Space, Technology, Engineering and Research) and it is a joint project of the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University, the University of Melbourne, the Australian Department of Defense and Lockheed Martin (Australia).
“Whilst thousands of people are homeless across Australia, it’s outrageous that our government is giving money to large corporations like Lockheed Martin” Eli Jessup a spokesperson for the group said.
“The government claims that funding the building of this lab…
Militarized law enforcement have now surrounded their camp. In less than 24 hours, at 2pm on THIS WEDNESDAY Feb. 22, law enforcement will try and raid the camp and arrest any water protectors who attempt to remain.
THIS IS NOT OK. This is their treaty land. This is their water at stake.
Water Protectors are asking media, supporters and those who can come to come NOW. Right now. Please pay attention & share their truths. Come if you can. This is the front line in the battle against #TrumpTyranny.
Survival • Self Determination • Liberation
This is why we march. Stand with us. Organize a caravan.
March 7- 9 : Native leaders and organizers will erect tipis on the National Mall and for three days they will hold space to make our voices and presence heard. They will also lobby in the halls of Washington D.C. to protect Indigenous Rights.
March 10 : Native Peoples and their allies will gather for a march through Washington D.C. On this day we will stand together by the thousands making our demands known and collectively we will tell the new administration they can no longer disrespect our rights, our ancestral lands and the sacred water that gives us life. #NativeNationsRise #NoDAPL #NoKXL #ProtectChaco #SaveOakFlat #NoNewLeases #IndigenousRising #StandWithStandingRock
INDIGENOUS WOMEN OF STANDING ROCK ISSUE HEARTBREAKING PLEA FOR HELP AHEAD OF EVACUATION | MIC
Peaceful protesters gathered there seemed to score a victory in early December, when the Army Corps of Engineers denied a permit that would have allowed construction of the Dakota Access pipeline to continue along its previously planned route, under Lake Oahe. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe opposed the pipeline on the grounds that it threatened ancient tribal lands and could pollute a crucial water source, the Missouri River.
When you walk through the streets of Madrid or simply go to work the next 14, 15 and 16 March you may see some fancy cars, we assume they’ll be black, big, with tinted glass and reinforced to endure bomb attacks.
Maybe in some hotel or restaurant of the expensive ones you will spot some men that we suppose will go well dressed, jacketed, corked and with their hair well cut. But you would not suspect that they are death-dealing, that they are warlords.
They will be in Madrid making the inhabitants of our city ashamed. During those days Madrid will become the world capital of ”legal” arms trafficking (will the illegal arms trade be here, taking advantage? We do not know, but we can assume …).
14, 15 and 16 March 2017the HOMSEC arms fair will be held in Madrid . It is sponsored by the Atenea Group, which we have already mentioned on several occasions, highlighting its military leadership, its previous involvement in the 23-F attempted Fascist Coup and its contacts with the PP.
Its objective is to sell weapons, to the highest bidder. May Madrid host the institutional sellers (or perhaps not) of arms so that, comfortably, taking advantage of Madrid’s hospitality, they can contact, exchange news, needs, inventions and proposals? Will millions of € move on armaments? Possibly.
