“Drop the Charges!”: Fri. May 11th Join Chelsea Manning and Former Defendants in DC!

On January 20th, 2017, hundreds of people were mass arrested while protesting Trump’s inauguration. The State then proceeded to blanket charge everyone arrested with “conspiracy” and multiple other felonies – seeking to lock them away for upwards of 80 years. The first 6 people faced trial in November, but were acquitted on all charges after the State failed to convince a jury of their guilt. Following this defeat, the US Attorney announced in January that it was dismissing charges against 129 defendants in order to focus resources on 59 people against whom they claim to have a stronger case.
On May 14th, a new group of defendants is scheduled to begin trial. In response, people are mobilizing to demand that the charges be dropped for all remaining defendants. A rally is scheduled in DC for Friday May 11th, a call-in campaign is set for May 10th – 11th, and on May 14th, people will engage in court support.

Facebook Event Here

Friday, May 11th, @ 12:30 PM at Franklin Square, join with former political prisoner Chelsea Manning, former J20 defendants, and special guests to rally and demand that charges against the remaining group of J20 defendants who still face upwards of 60 years in prison, be dropped immediately.

Failure of US bid to flood Europe with Gas from Fracking

….

 by TheFreeOnline      A few months ago US officials were openly boasting that they would steal the market for Russian gas in Europe by replacing it with their own LNG now flowing from the devastated fracking fields of America.
But in recent weeks not a single cargo of Frack Gas has reached Europe..What went wrong?
It seems that with so much anti Russian hysteria  they overlooked the price difference. . Gas shipped from the first US LNG export terminal was at one point priced in Rotterdam at $7.85 to $8.35  per mbtu  while the average Euro price was $ 5.35, (May 2017 European price, see Climate-lethal US frack-gas Footnote 3) .Even the rabidly anti Russian Baltic Republics seem to have shut up about bashing Putin with US gas, while Rotterdam has signed up as the trans-shipment center for cheap LNG from the new Russian LNG plant in the Arctic.


Frack-Gas is the same as normal gas, only that it’s up to 3 times more lethal than coal for the climate. Because extracting it requires fracturing shale in thousands of small wells with ultra toxic chemicals causing massive methane leaking.


Two of the biggest customers at present of  US fracking gas , Shell and Gas Natural, who have 20 year ‘take or pay’ contracts, have been shipping most of  their gas instead through the Panama canal to the Far East, where prices until now have been up to $3  per mbtu higher.

US fracking gas and oil depends on almost cost free loans and near immunity from water and air pollution laws and clean-up costs as well as a blind climate change denial policy.
The business, which has made the US nearly selfsufficient  in ‘natural’ gas, LPG and oil for now,  is often seen as a patriotic push to conserve US supremacy as the petrodollar scam wobbles  and the right to ‘infinite debt’ comes into question.Ironically the first giant LNG export plant in Sabine Pass, Louisiana, was first hit a glancing blow by the classic ‘climate change hurricane’ Harvey. . Though the company Cheniere claimed there was no damage there was still a queue of LNG tankers waiting to load at the port a month later and LNG journals were rejoicing that things were ‘getting back to normal’.  (see Recovery Continues as Sabine Pass)

Cheniere forced to close two Sabine Pass LNG tanks following dangerous  leak

Then there is the ongoing leaking tank disaster. The 6 mega plant ‘trains’ at Sabine Pass have been built in record time. Too fast it seems because last week the company was ordered to close down two of the five immense tanks where the gas is compressed by 600 times and held at minus 150 C until loaded onto the tankers.

US Fumes as ‘Petro Money’ subverts Campaign to Destroy Venezuela’

The Venezuelan “Petro” – Towards a New World Reserve Currency? By Peter Koenig

Global Research,      Imagine an international currency backed by energy? By a raw material that the entire world needs, not gold – which has hardly any productive use, but whose value is mostly speculative – not hot air like the US dollar. Not fiat money like the US-dollar and the Euro largely made by private banks without any economic substance whatsoever, and which are coercive. But a currency based on the very source for economic output – energy.

On February 20, 2018, Venezuela has launched the “Petro” (PTR), a government-made and controlled cryptocurrency, based on Venezuela’s huge petrol reserves of about 301 billion barrels of petrol. The Petro’s value will fluctuate with the market price of petrol, currently around US$61 per barrel of crude.

The Petro was essentially created to avoid and circumvent illegal US sanctions, dollar blockades, confiscations of assets abroad, as well as to escape illegal manipulations from Florida of the Bolivarian Republic’s local currency, the Bolívar, via the black-market dollars flooding Venezuela; and, not least, to trade internationally in a non-US-dollar linked currency. The Petro is a largely government controlled blockchain currency, totally outside the reach of the US Federal Reserve (FED) and Wall Street – and it is based on the value of the world’s key energy, hydrocarbons, of which Venezuela has the globe’s largest proven reserves…. article continues here..  The Venezuelan “Petro” –

MEFOBILLS shocktherapy   The Petro is money, not commodity.  The Petro became money the minute Maduro made it good for taxes.  Goods and Services will be priced in Petro’s.  Most likely there will be stores taking Petro’s for those who take their salary in that unit.

Government workers will be the first to have salary paid in Petro’s.  … Petro volume in money supply will be held to price of oil…Early adopters will be buying Petro’s with dollars, which will then help anchor Bolivar….Blockchain adds transparency, so Petro has good chance to be moral legal money.

I’ll make this prediction right now, it will work.  Other nations in Caribbean and Latin America will also jump on Petro bandwagon.  Mammon, now occupying Washington, London, and Tel-Aviv will not be happy.


Will the US Invade Venezuela?

Speaking at his alma mater, the University of Texas, on February 1, Secretary of State Tillerson suggested a potential military coup in Venezuela.  Tillerson then visited allied Latin American countries urging regime change and more economic sanctions on Venezuela.     ..                     continues below..

Guns To Phase Out Americans By 2050

   February 16, 2018 – SATIRE, BREAKING NEWS, WORLD NEWS

A DISTURBING REPORT issued by the International Centre For Research (ICFR) has estimated that guns are on course to phase out Americans by 2050, WWN has learned.

With the number of people suffering horrific and violent gun deaths in America exceeding 33,000 per year, it is believed when this harrowing statistic is combined with an unwavering commitment from politicians to do nothing, the result will be the total eradication of all 320 million Americans by 2050.

 “If current trends continue, the last two standing will go down in a blaze of depressing glory sometime late 2050,” explained head of the report Duncan Morrow.

The ICFR report makes for truly upsetting reading, and begs for immediate action to be taken in relation to a number of competing problems which can all be identified as contributing to America’s gun deaths problem. However, leading Republican politicians who have received the report could only confirm how quickly it burned when placed on an open fire.

“I’m here to reassure you, you may be scared after what happened recently, but America will always be a place that is safe for you,” President Donald Trump said in a press conference in which he talked directly to an assortment of worried firearms, in a bid to reassure all guns that no harm would come them in these troubling times.

Those desperately crying out for action in the wake of tragic death after tragic death after tragic death after tragic death have been incorrectly told it is normal that someone can legally buy an AR-15 rifle before they can purchase beer, and not to worry as other non-gun things kill more Americans every year and something should be done about that instead.

Others suffering insurmountable grief and pain after learning of yet more carnage facilitated by politicians paid by the NRA not to change laws have been told to reconvene in the usual places in public and online to voice their anger next time something like this happens again.

Nuclear War Imminent: UK must hold back Trump and join Weapons Ban

A Nuclear war could unleash a worldwide Nuclear Winter of up to 5 years if President Trump attacks North Korea and China defends her ally.

UK should take a Lead Role in de-escalating Nuclear War threat

Fourteen medical doctors and scientists call on the British government to join the international treaty demanding the ban of nuclear weapons:
”As medical doctors and scientists, we write concerning the escalating crisis between North Korea and the US (World running out of diplomatic levers, 30 August).
The power to kill millions is in the hands of unstable countries and unpredictable people. Tensions between these two nuclear powers clearly illustrate the dangers of nuclear weapons, which make the world less stable.

Evidence is indisputable that any use of such weapons would have a devastating health impact on populations. Robust scientific studies show that even a limited exchange of nuclear weapons would lead to major crop failures around the world. Such a “nuclear famine” scenario would result in mass starvation, potentially affecting as many as 2 billion people.

Venezuela Brings Regional Elections Forward to October. Greedy Capitalists Still Fuming

Imagen relacionadaYesterday the BBC dedicated its top world headline to the fact that an ex Venezuelan judge accused the president of corruption. .. Sorry? What? Who cares?

After 18 years of subversion, infiltration, coercion, bribery and a constant blitz of fake news the US is pushing Venezuela into a horrific civil war in order to take control of its oil.
Venezuelan commune movements march in support of the new Constituent Assembly (photo by AVN)

Trump cries  for lost democracy in Venezuela and threatens to send in the Marines to take the oilfields. Yet Venezuela has had elections almost every year and the latest Constitutional Assembly system is clearly more democratic than  before. We support the popular revolution and force Maduro and the repressive State not to sell out!

See Also.. US Pushing Civil War on Venezuela for Oil Control

Anything goes in he western media to throw mud at Venezuela . Shock, horror and  hate for a popular Social Revolution. And OMG  Scandal that a ‘socialist’ (albeit corrupt and repressive) State still survives . And this despite a blatantly illegal, billion dollar, decades long US subversion effort abetting one of the cruelest most implacable local oligarchies America has ever seen.

Is Maduro a dictator? By whose standards? Remember how we were fooled by the blitz of fake news into condemning Gaddafi, so they could destroy the best welfare state in Africa, leaving him raped and murdered in the street and the country in horrific chaos to this day.  Remember the mega-lying witch hunt against Saddam..Why? To steal rights over their oil.

We publish here an unreported snippet on local elections being brought forward by the new more directly democratic Constitutional Assembly.. But there is little hope of countering the TSUNAMI OF FAKE NEWS.


teleSUR  via  Aletho News           Venezuela’s newly-elected National Constituent Assembly, ANC, has brought forward the regional elections by two months.

The polls, which had been scheduled to take place on December 10, will now be held in October following unanimous approval by the ANC. Continue reading Venezuela Brings Regional Elections Forward to October. Greedy Capitalists Still Fuming

EN ESPAÑOL AQUI https://es.theanarchistlibrary.org/library/peter-gelderloos-la-anarquia-funciona

This book takes examples from around the world, picking through history and anthropology, showing that people have, in different ways and at different times, demonstrated mutual aid, self-organization, autonomy, horizontal decision making, and so forth–the principles that anarchy is founded on–regardless of whether they called themselves anarchists or not.

Too well documented to be strictly mythology, and too generalized to be strictly anthropology, this is an inspiring answer to the people who say that anarchists are utopian: a point-by-point introduction to how anarchy can and has actually worked.
