Turkish claims that the downed Russian Su-24 jet “violated” its airspace have sparked outrage among Greeks, who took to social media to say it is a clear-cut case of double standards as Turkish jets breached Greek airspace 2,244 times in 2014 alone.
They wondered what would happen if Greece had authorized engagement of Turkish aircraft, which breach the country’s borders on a regular basis.
comment: The ultra nationalist Turkish government under ‘Emperor Erdogan’ is also accused of collusion with and support for ISIL in Syria, of breaking a ceasefire and massacring peaceful Kurdish protestors, of climate crimes, of openly blackmailing Europe with threats of dumping refugees and of stealing recent elections with a terror campaign of bombings, shootings, curfews, torture and manipulation of voting results.
On Wednesday, the Protothema newspaper released the numbers of breaches saying the Turkish Air Force is usually reluctant to share any details when it comes to such violations.
Activists are furious and many now advocate the ‘Burning French’ Solution. Just weeks after The World Health Organisation finally and unanimously declared glyphosate, main ingredient of Monsanto’s Roundup, to be ‘probably cancerous’, a tame EU body has declared it ‘probably safe’. Billions of dollars and untold suffering are at stake as it’s the most popular herbicide and ‘works’ with Monsanto’s GMO seeds.
For decades Monsanto has made billions while knowingly murdering and maiming thousands of people. Selling carcinogenic pesticides worldwide using the tactics of commissioning dozens of heavily biased and partial reports from their own corrupted researchers, and infiltrating safety agencies with their compromised scientists.
The decision by the World Health Organisation to declare glyphosate to be ‘probably carcinogenic’ is the latest in an epic battle between corporate greed and horrific human suffering. After extensive review of the evidence, all 17 of WHO’s leading cancer experts said glyphosate is a “probable human carcinogen.”
Due to Global Overheating in the context of predator capitalism the oceans have never been hotter or more contaminated in human history, causing the death of coral reef ecosystems, spreading dead zones, lethal acidification, nuclear radiation damage, etc. In this context it is not surprising that beaches on the US west coast and worldwide are becoming sadly littered with the bodies of our fellow creatures on an unprecedented scale.
The city council has been won by ‘Barcelona in Common’ a radical new group stemming from the ‘Indignant’ occupiers, the feminist and the anti eviction movements.
Led by a young activist mother Ada Colau the activists have not yet been corrupted, promising like the Zapatistas to ‘govern obeying’, ordering police to stop evictions of mortgage defaulters, paralysing the plague of luxury hotel building and the rightwing liberal cuts offensive., etc.. and…

When I say the word anarchist you probably have an image of a bomb-throwing skinhead shouting slogans and facing down riot police.This week’s London Real guest David Graeber is going to change that image forever.A self-proclaimed anarchist, David is far more the picture of the soft-spoken, thoughtful academic than a combative activist.
But David’s credentials as a campaigner and anti-capitalist thinker speak volumes. In the first part of our enlightening discussion David recounts his intrinsic role in the 2011 Occupy Wall Street campaign. These protests saw THOUSANDS of people descend on New York City’s Zuccotti Park to create a political alternative to debt culture and corruption.

The current focus of this campaign is to stop the threat of coal being transported into Oakland by rail for export overseas. Despite the opposition of the City Council, the Mayor, and numerous other politicians “saying” they don’t want this new threat, the proposal remains on the table
We need a massive uprising of concerned residents, not only but mainly in Oakland, to “buck up” our political representatives to effectively challenge the coal terminal developer. If they cannot use their political muscle to stop the coal, then going to court, backed by the overwhelming majority of Oakland residents, will be the inevitable next step.
