Ending NATO and Correcting Stalin’s Mistake

UPROOTED PALESTINIANS: SALAM ALQUDS ALAYKUM

‘To Hell with Washington’

Colonel Douglas Macgregor

Introduction: The Atlantic and Europe

Judging by its name, NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was only ever about the USA and the UK, an agreement between Americans and the half-American Churchill. After all, what relevance does the ‘North Atlantic’ have to Baltic Germany or Mediterranean Italy, let alone to Aegean Greece and Black Sea Turkey? Even Spain and Portugal look towards the Caribbean and the South Atlantic, not to the North Atlantic. NATO is clearly an organisation that descended directly from the Atlantic Charter, made up by Roosevelt and Churchill in a bay off Newfoundland in 1941 (not even in the Atlantic), and then imposed on all the others.

The End of NATO

So, whatever was the NorthAtlanticdoing in the foothills of theHimalayas,in Afghanistan? Apart from the fact that that was its…

Thousands of people cry out in Spain against gender violence: “Not one more”

Posted on November 25, 2022 by ELCOMUNISTA.NET in SPAIN, translation thefreeonline

The focus has been on the victims of sexist violence, which has already left 1,171 women murdered since 2003.

Thousands of people are demonstrating this 25-N through the streets of the main Spanish cities to raise their voices and denounce the “cruel sexist violence” suffered by women. Shouting “Not one more” and “Basta ya”, they have shown their condemnation of any type of aggression and have wanted to remember the 38 murdered at the hands of their partners so far this year.

In different parts of the country, various feminist platforms and movements have organized marches for the Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

«With or without clothes, my body must not be touched», «Enough of unanswered aggression», «Not an isolated incident, it is patriarchy» or «It is not an ‘outburst’, it is a murder», have been some of the slogans. Also messages like “It’s not no”, “I don’t want to be brave, I want to be free” or “If they attack one, they attack us all”.

The focus has also been placed on the victims of sexist violence, which has already left 1,171 women murdered since 2003, and on the risk situation of many of them.

Thus, in Albacete they have highlighted that a fifth of the victims had a disability, while in Valencia they have reminded Iranian and Afghan women and girls that “they are subjected by religious patriarchy”.


From Barcelona to Las Palmas: demonstrations flood Spanish cities

In Barcelona, ​​3,000 people, according to the Guàrdia Urbana, have demanded an end to aggression and the so-called rape culture. Following the call of the November Feminist collective, the demonstration started from Paseo de Gracia with Rosellón and moved to Gran Vía, where the reading of the manifesto took place and Batucada Escandalera (drummers) performed with the theme «The rapist is you».

Thousands of people have also demonstrated through the streets of Valencia, where the demo started at 7:30 p.m. from the Porta del Mar in the capital, behind a banner with the slogan “Dones vives i unides contra el masclisme”, and it concluded in the Plaza del Ayuntamiento, where two women survivors of sexist violence read a manifesto.

In Alicante, dozens of red shoes and as many empty chairs have served to remember each of the 38 women murdered by their partners or ex-partners during this 2022 and who have symbolized the rejection of sexist violence in Alicante society, which has come out on the streets with three different demonstrations to protest against this «scourge».

The Cantabrians have also toured the streets of Santander this Friday. Purple has once again been the predominant color this 25N in the Cantabrian capital, in a march in which hundreds of people have filled Paseo Pereda, to cover the distance between Puertochico and the Plaza del Ayuntamiento.

The demonstration, called by various feminist assemblies from municipalities such as Santander, Torrelavega or Cabezón de la Sal, has had the institutional support of the Government of Cantabria and was attended by the regional president, Miguel Ángel Revilla.

The main streets of the Canarian capitals have also been filled with protesters who have asked in a manifesto “not to deny indecency”, as well as more public policies and resources to fight against this scourge.

The 25N in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria was bathed in violet and in a tide of more than half a thousand people. For its part, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, the demonstration was led by a banner with the slogan “Sexist violence does not stop, transformative policies now”.

WeChat censors posts as workers continue protests against iPhone factory and Zero-Covid restrictions

By Will Henney at Reclaim The Net. Nov 24, 2022 via thefreeonline

Some Viral posts on WeChat are disappearing.

While the Chinese government’s ‘zero-tolerance’ COVID policy has deprived workers of income, mismanagement by Apple’s supplier, Foxconn, means that remaining employment opportunities are full of exploitation and unfair treatment,” Li told the Star.

@violazhouyi is a Hong Kong based China tech reporter for @restofworld formerly in @viceworldnews @scmpnews

WeChat “removed a viral post that criticized China’s Covid policies. The account that posted it was also blocked because the post violated “related rules.”

The unidentified author of the post, which was removed after reaching 100,000 hits (the maximum number WeChat publicly reveals), asked questions directed at the National Health Commission.

According to US New York based @chinalaborwatch “there has been rising discontent by the public over China’s highly restrictive Covid policies. However, direct and detailed criticism of the government is rare given how closely Beijing monitors traditional and social media”.

China’s draconian ZERO-Covid policies originated in fears of a ‘Race Specific” virus against ethnic Chinese escaping from a US Bio War Lab. Later China’s efficient lockdowns policy was copied unsuccessfully around the world. Now as the virus has waned the Zero Covid policy seems absurd and totally counter productive.

They asked why there are still tough restrictions when other parts of the word, including Hong Kong, have gone back to conditions matching the pre-pandemic period..

WHO PROTECT US?

THE PRODIGY OF IDEAS

A handful of people are defending most of Earth’s biodiversity. Our survival depends on their strength and resilience.

Instead of helping these people, our governments collaborate with regimes who are more than willing to infringe upon their rights and destroy their forests.

Of course, let’s not forget this isn’t happening just in Brazil, Congo, Indonesia etc. it’s also happening in the US and Canada…

If we manage to destroy them, we are certainly going to destroy ourselves.

Seven Indigenous political prisoners from Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón launch hunger strike

by fallingincandescence

By Gloria Muñoz Ramírez, Desinformémonos
Translated by Scott Campbell

Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón | Desinformémonos. The demand for the freedom of the seven Mazateco political prisoners was the focus of the international event organized to mark the 100th anniversary of the death in prison of Ricardo Flores Magón, an anarchist precursor of the Mexican Revolution who questioned power until his death, which occurred on November 21, 1922 in a U.S. prison.

The revolutionary was born in Eloxochitlán, Oaxaca, and here, after a series of commemorative acts organized by the community, it was announced that the prisoners – held in three different prisons – will remain on hunger strike until governor-elect Salomón Jara Cruz opens a dialogue with their relatives to facilitate their release.

In a letter sent from the prisons of Villa de Etla, Taniveth, and Cuicatlán, Oaxaca, Jaime Betanzos, Fernando Gavito, Alfredo Bolaños, Omar Hugo Morales, Herminio Monfil, Isaías Gallardo and Francisco Durán recalled that the federal government recognized them as political prisoners in December 2018. At that time, they noted, “it was recognized that we are Indigenous people whose rights have been violated and that crimes were fabricated against us.”

In this town in the Sierra Mazateca, the activities in homage to Flores Magón began on November 19 and culminated today, November 21, with a march and political act in front of the municipal offices.

How did Pfizer recruit kids for its Covid-19 vaccine trial? Why was a New York hospital running an ad to bring in children? Watch this video and find out.

lies secrecy covid vaccines feature

Government health officials could have saved themselves by coming clean a few months into the COVID-19 jab scam. At this point, there’s no way to save face, let alone anyone’s career.

Story at a glance:

  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has publicly warned that COVID-19 is one of the Top 10 causes of death in children aged 5 to 11, yet when asked to produce the data, they admitted they never conducted an analysis for that age group.
  • The CDC has also lied about Pfizer’s study results. While claiming the Pfizer jab was 92% effective for those with previous COVID-19 infection, the actual trial data found NO evidence of efficacy in those with previous infection.

Police blame rats for missing cannabis

24 Nov, 2022 21:19 HomeWorld News via thefreeonline

“Rats are tiny animals and they have no fear of the police,” law enforcement officials said, stating that “it’s difficult to protect the drug from them.” ..Indian officers claim rodents ate hundreds of kilograms of cannabis stored as evidence

Mice Ate Half a Ton of Marijuana, But Did They Get High?

Indian Police Service officials have pointed to “fearless mice” as being the culprits responsible for the disappearance of hundreds of kilograms of cannabis seized from drug dealers and stored as evidence in drug-peddling cases.

The unusual explanation came after a court in Uttar Pradesh state had asked law enforcement on Saturday to produce the confiscated marijuana for several ongoing drug cases dating back to 2018.

Police reportedly responded by stating they couldn’t provide the full amount because rats had destroyed 195 kilograms of the cannabis in one case. The rodents, they said, had also eaten “some” of the evidence in another case involving 386 kilograms of the drug.

“Rats are tiny animals and they have no fear of the police,” law enforcement officials said, stating that “it’s difficult to protect the drug from them.” Mathura public prosecutor Ranveer Singh further explained that there is no place in the police station where the cannabis could be safe from rats.

Judge Sanjay Chaudhary conceded that police “did not have the expertise” to deal with such tiny rodents and noted that some 700 kilograms of marijuana seized by law enforcement is currently lying in police stations in the Mathura district and that all of it was in danger of infestation by rats.

The judge went on to suggest that the only way to protect the cannabis from “such fearless mice” was to auction it off to drug research labs and medicine firms and send the proceeds to the government.

The court has now ordered the police to find a way to deal with the “rat menace” and produce evidence that the rodents did indeed destroy the 581 kilograms of marijuana, reportedly worth six million Indian rupees ($7,341).

Police Blame Rats For Missing 540 Kilos of Weed ·

A similar case occurred in 2018 in Argentina, when eight police officers were fired after they blamed mice for the disappearance of half a ton of cannabis from a police warehouse.

Their claims were dismissed after forensic experts pointed out that it was unlikely that the animals would confuse the drug with food and that there would have been “a lot of corpses” found in the warehouse if the mice did consume the marijuana.

Indigenous Mazatec Political Prisoners from Oaxaca Demand Freedom!

To our families and residents of our hometown, Eloxochitlán de Flores Magón, Sierra Mazateca, Oaxaca, Mexico:

To our sisters and brothers in the struggle in Mexico and the world:

People of the world:

To the media:

We are Mazatec prisoners Jaime Betanzos, Herminio Monfil, Fernando Gavito, Alfredo Bolaños, Omar Hugo Morales, Isaías Gallardo and Francisco Durán.

Five of us have been imprisoned for eight years without trial or sentence, and two of us for four years in the same circumstances.

Some of us were released in March 2019, but at the door of the prison we were arrested again based on false accusations.

We did not enjoy a single minute of freedom. 15 more comrades have been forcibly displacement because arrest warrants were issued on the same false accusations, among them, Miguel Peralta Betanzos.

We are still locked up, even though it has been proven that the crimes are based on fabricated evidence.

As Mazatecos wanting self-determination for our people, we do not understand why the government of Oaxaca wants to keep us locked up.

We have had more than 13 favorable rulings in court and more than 20 decisions ordering the release of other comrades. Since December 2018, the federal government has recognized we are unjustly imprisoned people and political prisoners.

Women, mothers, comrades, daughters, sisters and people in solidarity have tirelessly demanded our freedom, but have faced discrimination and racism.

For this reason, we want to strengthen our demands.

We have agreed to continue organizing as a collective, because enough is enough! It has been too long!! We should be free by now!

Our freedom, and that of every person, is precious.  We will always defend freedom and would not trade it even for all the gold in the world.

We have decided to name our struggle: “Tjí’nde-najin Kjoabijnandií-najin”, a Mazatec expression that means: “We have the right to freedom”.

As a collective, we have agreed to join the struggle for freedom with the “International Coordinating Committee for Solidarity and for the Freedom of Revolutionary Political Prisoners of The World, Oaxaca”, because we are not alone.

In has been 100 years since our brother, Mazatec anarchist Ricardo Flores Magón, was assassinated in prison and we say: Enough!

No one should be in prison for thinking differently! No one should die in prison! Down with the prisons walls!”

We are once again calling for worldwide solidarity, and to those who have already offered it to us, it would be an honor to have your continued support.

We invite you to join us in our demands. If we are standing, it is because you have supported us in solidarity from the outside. We thank you for your faith and your sensitivity in recognizing that we are innocent.

Sincerely, from the prisons Villa de Etla, Taniveth and Cuicatlán, in Oaxaca, Mexico:

Collective: “Tjí’nde-najin Kjoabijnandií-najin” “We have the right to freedom”.

Jaime Betanzos,Fernando Gavito, Alfredo Bolaños, Omar Hugo Morales, Herminio Monfil, Isaías Gallardo, Francisco Durán

Important: We invite you to share and spread the word about this communiqué, as well as to translate it into all the languages you know.

100 years after death of Mexican Revolution hero, political prisoners begin hunger strike

President López Obrador named 2022 the Year of Ricardo Flores Magón, but has done nothing to help residents of the revolutionary’s hometown who have been locked up for eight years on what they say are unfounded charges.

ELOXOCHITLÁN DE FLORES MAGÓN, Mexico (CN) — Schoolbooks in Mexico say little, if anything, about Ricardo Flores Magón. His anarchist ideology was unpalatable to a state trying to consolidate power after the turmoil of the Mexican Revolution. Picturesque roughriders like Emiliano Zapata and Francisco Villa made for more patriotic role models.

Stop Fossil Fuels Expansion! – it’s now or never ..answer.. “How About NEVER”?

by George Monbiot at monbiot.com/ on 23rd November 2022 via thefreeonline

Powerful governments have no intention of preventing climate breakdown.

The chances of any one person being born were calculated by the life coach Dr Ali Binazir.

He multiplied the probability of your parents meeting, mating and conceiving by the chances of a particular sperm and egg fusing; of all your human and hominid ancestors reaching reproductive age; and of all them successfully reproducing.

He arrived at a figure of one in 10 to the power of 2,640,000. In other words, a 10 followed by 2.6m zeros. It’s an unimaginable, miraculous number. Yet here we are.

The chances of being alive right now, as a member of one of the first generations to know the path it is on, and one of the last that can change it, must add several more zeros to this crazy number. The chances of being the president or prime minister of your nation at this critical moment … well you get the idea.

So how have heads of government chosen to use this miracle? To extend our time on Earth, earning the gratitude of all the improbable humans of the future?

No. They have chosen to do nothing.

Nothing that has a realistic chance, in this contest of probabilities, of changing our trajectory. They had a choice at the Cop27 meeting in Sharm el-Sheikh of defending the habitable planet or appeasing their sponsors. They went with the sponsors.

We know how way leads on to way, how the power amassed through corrupt decisions in previous generations drives the corrupt decisions of our time.

We know that the licence granted to fossil fuel companies by 50 years of failure has enabled them to make stupendous profits – $2.8bn a day on average across that entire period – and that they need invest only a fraction of this money in politics to buy every politician and every political decision they want.
