The girl who silenced the members of the UN.

severn-suzukiPreviously to his 10 years of age Severn Suzuki founded with some other children in the city of Vancouver in Canada a group of environmental activists named ECO – Environmental Children Organization.

On June 3, 1992 the 12 years old girl moved with a group of children from her environmental group to Brazil for to assist the Conference of Environment and Development, “The Earth Summit “ held by the UN in Rio de Janeiro.

Once there she made a speech of 6:32 minutes. Every word in his speech puts goose bumps … each of us must shoulder its responsibility towards what is happening in every corner of the world …

Even when we have more than enough we are afraid of losing part of our wealth and afraid to share with those who have less ….

Control oil and you control nations, control food and you control the people

The ultimate goal of Henry Kissinger, the “hired hand” of Rockefeller dynasty.

America’s post-world war II dominance rests on two pillars and one commodity – unchallengeable military power and the dollar as the world’s reserve currency combined with the quest to control global oil and other energy resources.

economic-powerIn the midst of a worldwide drought and stock market collapse, consider Henry Kissinger’s classified memo in April, 1974. It was on a secret project called National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM 200) that was shaped by Rockefeller interests and aimed to adopt a “world population plan of action” for drastic global population control – meaning to reduce it. The US led the effort, and it worked like this – it made birth control in developing countries a prerequisite for US aid. Engdahl summed it up in blunt terms: “if these inferior races get in the way of our securing ample, cheap raw materials, then we must find ways to get rid of them.”

UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reporting sharply higher food prices along with severe shortages, and warned this condition is extreme, unprecedented and threatens billions with hunger and starvation. Prices are up 40% this year after a 9% rise in 2006, and it forced developing states to pay 25% more for imported food and be unable to afford enough of it.

american-dreamVarious explanations for the problem are cited that include growing demand, higher fuel and transportation costs, commodity speculation, the use of corn for ethanol production (taking one-third of the harvest that’s more than what’s exported for food) and extreme weather while ignoring the above implications – the power of agribusiness to manipulate supply for greater profits and “cull the herd” in targeted Third World countries. Affected ones are poor, and FAO cites 20 in Africa, 9 in Asia, 6 in Latin America and 2 in Eastern Europe that in total represent 850 million endangered people now suffering from chronic hunger and related poverty. They depend on imports, and their diets rely heavily on the type grains agribusiness controls – wheat, corn and rice plus soybeans. If current prices stay high and shortages persist, millions will die – maybe by design.

exxon-dessert-eagleUnder the banner of the United Nations, the new Bretton Woods framework, the IMF, World Bank and the GATT, were established for one purpose – to integrate the developing world into the US-dominated Global North so its wealth could be transfered to powerful business interests, mostly in the US.

So far, Washington and the industry are on a roll toward controlling oil and food. The pursuit was ongoing with little public knowledge of how far advanced things are and how reckless the scheme is – to genetically engineer all plants and life forms and to control world population by culling its “unwanted” parts. Hundreds of millions around the world stand opposed, but it’s unclear if that’s enough.

Big Banks controlling the Federal Reserve and our money (dollar), Big Oil our world energy resources, Big Media our information, Big Pharma our health, Big Technology our state-of-the-art everything and watching us, Big Defense our wars, Big Pentagon waging them, and other corporate predators exploiting our lives for profit.

Study Confirms Genetically Modified Corn Threaten Human Health and Fertility

pregnant-womanA long-term feeding study commissioned by the Austrian Agency for Health and Food Safety, managed by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Health, Family and Youth, and carried out by Veterinary University Vienna, confirms genetically modified (GM) corn seriously affects reproductive health in mice. Non-GMO advocates, who have warned about this infertility link along with other health risks, now seek an immediate ban of all GM foods and GM crops to protect the health of humankind and the fertility of women around the world.

Feeding mice with genetically modified corn developed by the US-based Monsanto Corporation led to lower fertility and body weight, according to the study conducted by the University of Veterinary Medicine in Vienna. Lead author of the study Professor Zentek said, there was a direct link between the decrease in fertility and the GM diet, and that mice fed with non-GE corn reproduced more efficiently.

America is losing its superpower status in the global system

irak-war-victimsIn 2008 appeared some obstacles which produced big interruptions in the enlargement of  American power and it seems that this plan is doomed to failure. The Financial Crisis of 2008 bankrupted the American economic system and the dollar is loosing value, the big banks are crashing, the oil price is sinking, the wars in Irak and Afghanistan are complicating without possibility to win them ….. promising to initiate a big change Obama is elected new president in the United States …..

Gorbachev s russian Perestroika finished the cold war. Barack Obama s Perestroika will finish the economical war for Americans domination.

The new crisis affecting the global financial system based on parasitic speculation and usury is a terminal crisis. It can no longer be solved through purely financial and monetary mechanisms and measures. If US authorities only concentrate on this type of measure, then a truly serious collapse is imminent and unavoidable.

finances, energy and food in crisis

For the first time in modern economic times, three major crises – affecting finances, energy and food – are coinciding, coming together and merging. Each interacts with the others, exponentially worsening the deterioration of the real economy.

As much as the authorities try to minimize the seriousness of the moment, the truth is that we are facing an economic cataclysm of unprecedented magnitude, whose social effects are just beginning to be felt and will explode with total brutality in the next several months.

From financial crisis we have gone on to a social crisis. And the authoritarian policies emerge again. The European Parliament on June 18 approved the infamous “directive of return,” and the Spanish authorities have announced their willingness to arrange for the eviction from Spain of one million foreign workers.

On top of this awful situation comes the third oil shock, as the price of a barrel of crude rises to about US$140. That is an irrational increase (in 1998, a barrel cost less than US$10), due not only to an excessive demand but, above all, to the action of many speculators who are betting on the continuing rise of a fuel on its way to extinction.

As if this whole context were not gloomy enough, the food crisis has suddenly worsened, reminding us that the specter of hunger continues to threaten almost 1 billion people. In about 40 countries, the high cost of food has provoked uprisings and general revolts. The summit of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), held June 5 in Rome to consider alimentary security, could not reach an agreement to relaunch worldwide food production. Here, too, speculators fleeing from the financial disaster are partly responsible, because they”re betting on a high price of future harvests. So even agriculture is being financialized.

la-cumbre-del-g-20

The big emerging countries, who now lead the global growth want to enter the closed club of rich countries and become full partners in the conduct of economic issues on the planet. This club is dominated by the largest world economies Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Italy, United States and the European Union.  In the group of G 20 this nations include 12 emerging nations: Brazil, Russia, India, China, Argentina, Australia, Indonesia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, South Korea and Turkey.

In the heat of the financial storm that is shaking the most advanced economies, Brazil, Russia, India and China (BRIC group called by its acronym) do not want to settle for a seat in the second category of the G20 summit convened to discuss the crisis.

Those four nations had a “call to reforming multilateral institutions to reflect structural changes in the global economy” and also demonstrate “the central role that emerging markets are now playing.”
