Amazing Amazon river dolphin

Pink, blue or albino, the Amazon river dolphin is the most distinctive of the five river dolphins. It has a ridge along its back rather than a dorsal fin and its fat, heavy body is surprisingly flexible. Paddle-like flippers which move in a circular motion provide exceptional manoeuvrability, making up for a lack of speed. The Amazon and Orinoco river basins provide all the food in its highly diverse diet, including at least 40 different species of fish. It relies on echolocation to find prey in the muddy waters. Males can reach two and a half metres in length, making them the largest of the river dolphins. This is unusual as in the other four species, the females are the larger sex. Amazon river dolphins have few natural predators, but caimans, anacondas and jaguars have been known to take them.

Climate criminal Branson zapped by Hurricane Irene

Hurricane Irene attacks Sir Richard Branson, Fantastic natural revenge!

Branson is responsible for pumping billions of tons of CO2 into the upper atmosphere.

Climate Chaos and worse hurricanes are a direct result, as the world climate nears the dreaded

tipping point of no return, with CO2 emissions totally out of control.

Branson was luxuriating on his private island with bis jet set guests,

savouring the rewards of destroying the future of the planet for us all…

WHAMMO   good old Irene totally destroyed the main mansion!!!!!

Smouldering remains of Branson’s £60m paradise home:

Irene's revenge on mega Climate Criminal Branson

Scene the day after Kate Winslet rescued Virgin boss’s mother from inferno

  • Branson thanks Winslet for helping carry his 90-year-old mother to safety
  • Sir Richard calls for ‘Dunkirk spirit’ after island battered by Hurricane Iren

This smouldering wreckage is all that remains today of Sir Richard Branson’s luxury Caribbean home after it was razed to the ground by fire.

The multi-million-pound Great House on Necker, the Virgin tycoon’s £60million private island, caught fire after it was struck by lightning in the early hours of Monday when the region was battered by Hurricane Irene.

And the tycoon revealed that as his family and guests fled for their lives the Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet carried his 90-year-old mother Eve to safety.

Etnocidio en “La selva más hermosa del mundo”

COMUNIDADES INDÍGENAS en la zona COLONIZADA del TIPNIS… No hace falta leer en la historia la crueldad de la colonización.

En pleno siglo XXI, observamos el
ETNOCIDIO cruelmente socapado
por autoridades del Gobierno.

¿Qué consecuencias tuvo la
colonización cocalera en el TIPNIS?

Adolfo Moye: Hemos visto que muchas comunidades terminaron rodeadas por colonos, como por ejemplo la comunidad de Santísima Trinidad donde yo vivo junto a 140 familias indígenas mezcladas con algunos colonos; hemos quedado al centro de la zona colonizada y rodeados por cocaleros. En la comunidad de Limo los hermanos del pueblo moxeño yuracaré ahora tienen apenas una hectárea y trabajan como empleados de los colonos. Sus hijos han tenido que migrar a las ciudades capitales para buscar empleo queriendo adoptar otra forma de vida; en muchos pueblos sólo quedan los viejitos. Algunas comunidades como Puerto Patiño e Isiborito se extinguieron y no sabemos a dónde se fueron esos hermanos.

Derechos Humanos pide respetar la marcha indígena y convoca a la pacificación..Fuente: Erbol, Tarija

La presidenta de la Asamblea Permanente de los Derechos Humanos de Bolivia (APDHB), Yolanda Herrera, demandó a los habitantes de San Ignacio de Moxos del departamento de Beni y otras poblaciones del país a respetar la marcha de los indígenas que se oponen a la construcción de la carretera por el parque nacional.

La marcha de más de un millar de indígenas de 34 pueblos indígenas del oriente boliviano, respaldado por el consejo Nacional de Markas y Ayllus del Qullasuyu y otras, recorrió al menos 90 kilómetros desde la ciudad de Trinidad hasta el municipio de San Ignacio de Moxos, donde algunos grupos adversarios anunciaron bloquearlos.

“Les pido que respetemos la demanda y la expresión de los hermanos y hermanas de los pueblos indígenas de tierras bajas que están realizando la marcha (en defensa del Territorio Indígena Parque Nacional Isiboro Sécure) porque la violencia sólo genera la violencia y empobrece a nuestro país”, afirmó.

La representante nacional de los Derechos Humanos, en declaraciones a radio Aclo Tarija de Erbol, argumentó que la marcha del pueblo indígena integrada por los niños, mujeres, varones y ancianos se manifiestan pacíficamente ante Bolivia sus demandas del respeto a su forma de vida, costumbres y su territorio.

Sin embargo, reiteró la convocatoria al presidente del Estado, Evo Morales, para que vaya hasta la marcha y establezca el diálogo porque son escenarios favorables para solucionar este conflicto sino más adelante podría haber otros escenarios por las circunstancias sociales que van generándose.

Campaña en Defensa del TIPNIS

Denunciamos ante Bolivia y el Mundo que el gobierno boliviano está transgrediendo la Constitución Política del Estado, el Convenio 69 de la OIT, la Ley del Medio Ambiente, el Reglamento de Áreas Protegidas y otras leyes bolivianas y compromisos internacionales y pretende construir de una manera ILEGAL COMPROBADA una carretera sobre el TIPNIS lo cual ocasionaría la mayor destrucción ecológica en la historia de Bolivia. Esto ocasionaría un ATENTADO a la vida y cultura de los pueblos moxeños, yurakarés y chimanés que habitan en él. Asimismo, se condenaría a la EXTINCIÓN de fauna y flora ÚNICAS en el mundo. Por otra parte, se afectaría de una manera irreparable la naciente de ríos fundamentales, lagos y belleza escénica. Solicitamos al presidente Evo Morales que sea consecuente con su discurso en defensa de la Madre Tierra.

¿Acaso este es el aporte de Evo Morales a la destrucción de la Amazonía boliviana?

TinTin’s riot class..Freedom Press

Tintin the responsible Rioter

Freedom Press is in the process of re-printing The Adventures of Tintin: Breaking Free that perennial anarchist classic.

It features our hero, a ordinary working class lad from the inner cities, at the centre of political demonstrations, wildcat strikes, street riots, and eventually a revolutionary uprising.

It graphically depicts scenes of social unrest, workers solidarity and people looting the local Tescos.

Resist army repression: Israeli/Egyptian/Syrian

Mass rallies in Egypt against Israeli killings of Egyptian soldiers.

Divide and rule..Sure thing the Generals on BOTH sides are secretly delighted.

Using nationalism as always to divide and control

Suddenly interest has switched from Mubarak’s grisly trial.

Dont forget…”Before and after Mubarak was ousted, Egypt’s military arrested, imprisoned, tortured, and disappeared thousands, a practice continuing to ruthlessly stay in power and prevent change.”

and …”Notably, Washington backs brutal junta rule, including violence against growing public opposition to prevent a “second revolution.” So does National Association for Change leader Mohamad ElBaradei, saying he regards the military as the main guarantor of Egypt’s “incipient democracy,” when, in fact, none exists, isn’t planned, and won’t be tolerated by junta generals, top Obama administration officials, or himself, based on his offensive comment and others earlier.

From around March to July 7, Al Jazeera reported little about Egyptian discontent, strikes, street protests and brutal security force crackdowns, including the mass July 1 street protests and a million or more coming out on July 8….”

Brasil mani’s em defesa da Amazônia

On sat 20th Aug a massive demo took place against the ongoing Amazon destruction for the Belo Monte dam. Also against the new Forest Law, now in the Senate, which ‘relaxes’ the already unenforced deforestation  code. Brazil had been a constructive leader in Climate talks, which came to nothing due to the greedy demands of the West.

Milhares de ativistas protestam contra Usina de Belo Monte

“A represa de Belo Monte significa a última punhalada no coração da Amazônia”, declarou em Belém o presidente do Conselho Indigenista Missionário, Erwin Krautler, que é também bispo prelado do Xingu, região onde as obras inundarão 516 quilômetros quadrados de floresta e que, segundo os povos ribeirinhos, vai obrigar a remoção das famílias de cerca de 50.000 pessoas. Além de Belém, onde 2.000 pessoas se mobilizaram, e São Paulo, houve manifestações similares em Brasília, Rio de Janeiro, Fortaleza, João Pessoa, Recife, Salvador, Santarém, Florianópolis, Cuiabá, Manaus e Belo Horizonte. Enquanto você lê isso, centenas de escavadeiras agem ilegalmente na Amazônia, dando início a um dos mais avassaladores e irreversíveis crimes ambientais de nossa história, a construção da hidrelétrica de Belo Monte, que vai acabar com o Parque Nacional do Xingu. No mesmo instante, as emendas feitas no Código Florestal Brasileiro, propostas pelo deputado Aldo Rebelo (PC do B), já foram aprovadas pela Câmara e aguardam apenas a votação no Senado para permitirem aos grandes latifundiários do Agronegócio desmatarem à vontade nossas florestas, sob a desculpa da “necessidade de produção alimentícia”.

Além de protestar contra o Código Florestal, os manifestantes querem manter o diálogo com a sociedade que, pare eles, está mal informada em relação ao projeto. “O novo Código Florestal nos faz ver que esse é um dos maiores escândalos governamentais desde a guerra do Iraque. Isso se não for mais. E a população precisa saber disso, uma vez que essa aprovação irá alterar suas vidas no futuro”, acrescenta Leandro.

17yr Facebooker arrested for ‘start rioting’ quip.

FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE FACEBOOK KIDS………….

Please post on your facebook/twitter/blogs/comments………all over Prisoner suport group here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/143369622416604/

 

This is what he wrote.. “I think we should start rioting, it’s about time we stopped the authorities pushing us about and ruining this country.  “It’s about time we stood up for ourselves for once. So come on rioters – get some. LOL.”

This is an absolute attack on free speech. The 17 year old lives in a small village near Bury St.Edmunds.There is nothing specific in his facebook post to any area – it’s a general statement. He’s been given a curfew, youth rehabiitation order and god knows what else. He’d even deleted it so it ws only up for a short  time.

The weekend before last Nik Cohen posted in The Observer ‘Why are there no riots here’ – why aint he been done. Or a thousand pieces you could read in broadsheets giving opinions or on leftie blogs like this. Why pick on teenagers?

This prosecution is worse than the other one because it’s a general statement of opinion by no mean a specific incitement. If a kid in Syria had posted this he’d be hailed a hero. It’s now a crime here to say ‘I think we should start rioting’.

I think we need a lot of people who write and blog to stand up now and be counted on this one. Maybe some mass signed statement – maybe all put our names to what this kid has said and wait for the knock at the door. First they came for the 17 year old Facebookers…….
