STOP THEM NOW: Why do So Few of us Protest the High Risk of a Nuclear Holocaust?

by   Lawrence Wittner  36 Comments      In 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.”

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un responded by announcing that, in the event of a U.S. military attack, his country would not scruple at launching a nuclear strike at U.S. forces. In turn, Trump declared: “We are sending an armada, very powerful. We have submarines, very powerful, far more powerful than the aircraft carrier. We have the best military people on earth.” Continue reading STOP THEM NOW: Why do So Few of us Protest the High Risk of a Nuclear Holocaust?

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.

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)

This information is according to the  Vessel Finder Site HERE … see destination. Arrival at Sabine Pass April 20th

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.

If the La Mancha Knutsen is really on its way to pick up the first load of Frack-gas for GNF it will arrive in Spain between the 10th and 20th of May, 2017, which leaves us time to find out which port it will come to.

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).

El gas per a Gas Natural ( principalment del fracking) arriba a Sabine Pass a través de la Cheniere Trail Pipeline que va a través dels pantans no protegits i fortament contaminades amb materials tòxics des de les plataformes petrolíferes no controlats i la runa de l’huracà Rita.

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.

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).

Massive Voter Fraud Mars Turkey Referendum

Video clips of alleged irregularities go viral in Turkey

Apr 16, 2017 at 10:54 AM ET

Claims of voter fraud and other irregularities are tainting today’s critical referendum in Turkey, where voters are deciding whether to approve a massive expansion of presidential powers. The referendum, which will replace the country’s parliamentary system with a more concentrated executive system, could allow for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to remain in office until 2029.

Given the high stakes, many Turks are on the lookout for irregularities. Videos purporting to show fraud, like voting outside of stations and voters submitting multiple ballots are going viral on Turkish social media. One video appears to show a voter emerging from his booth, then putting five envelopes into the ballot box. Continue reading Massive Voter Fraud Mars Turkey Referendum

Can a Fascist Dictator be Elected? YES.. and Erdogan threatens Prison, Dismissal and Death to NO voters

The  referendum in Turkey is to give the president Erdogan nearly total dictatorial powers. But can a Fascist Dictator really  be Elected?

YES because in this case Erdogan has already seized dictatorial powers.. he’s supposed to be a generally symbolic president yet see below  the endless list of atrocities he has ordered.

But is he a fascist? Well, he is the absolute power in the populist far right AKP party which advocates extermination of 18 million kurds and the creation of an Ottoman Empire.

Though he screams and bullies abroad he is at home a master manipulator, head of a criminal family and business mafia, adept at abusing nationalist, sexist  and racial prejudices and feelings of resentment (even working class resentment against rich europeans) to whip up frenzied mob fervour and pursue witch-hunts against Kurds, leftists, feminists, Gulanists, minorities and anyone who dares to criticize him (or is a friend or family of any of the above).

Is this fascism.. in my definition YES. The referendum in this climate is a black joke, with every kind of pressure imaginable against No campaigners, with zero international observers coming, and with the most recent elections in Nov 2015 described as ‘stinking of mass fraud’.

For an Anti-Fascist, Revolutionary Unionism!.. IWW African People’s Caucus

Image result for Twin Cities IWW African People's CaucusBy Twin Cities IWW African People’s Caucus   April 5, 2017       Fascism is a concept that has grown a lot of particular interest since the election of Donald Trump and the failure of neoliberalism. While we don’t consider Trump himself to be a fascist but a right wing populist, we do recognize that he has mobilized a broad coalition of the right, which includes some fascists.

However, reactionary violence is nothing new to black and African people living in the United States. Our communities have seen first-hand the terror campaigns of proto-fascist groups such as the KKK, and other kinds of organized white supremacist violence.Image result for Twin Cities IWW African People's Caucus

Our oppression and exploitation have been central to the establishment of modern capitalism in the Americas. This also means we have been fighting back since we were brought here. Our stake in anti-fascism is not an academic question. Continue reading For an Anti-Fascist, Revolutionary Unionism!.. IWW African People’s Caucus
