~ Israel funded and trained the military repression of anti-colonial uprisings and/or dictatorship in the Ivory Coast, Central African Republic, Benin, Cameroon, Senegal, Togo, Uganda, Nigeria, and Somalia.37
~ In the neo-colonial civil wars, former colonial powers and current imperial powers fuel, arm, and even instigate these wars to divide and re-conquer Africa. Israel has armed many or all sides. A prime example is Israel’s arming of the three sides of Angola’s civil war at different times over four decades.38

It would appear the UK Government has learnt from the USA, bringing forward an Act, that will protect Frackers and their supporters. At the expense of the public and environment!

The Infrastructure Act unexpectedly made news last week with the closure of a loophole on fracking consent. Fracking in the UK now looks unlikely in 2017. But 2018 could be very different, with fracking now expected at two sites and shale gas companies looking for new locations. In this guest post, barrister Paul Stafford examines the consequences for landowners of the Infrastructure Act provisions on fracking.

What happened to strict regulations and monitoring promised by this Government, totry and win public support?

Third Energy should be denied consent to frack in North Yorkshire because it failed to carry out monitoring correctly, Friends of the Earth said this morning.

The League of Nations, which the #USA based United Nations replaced, made clear;
Article 22 of The League of Nations Covenant stated that the right of “those colonies and territories which, as a consequence of the late war, have ceased to be under the sovereignty of the States which formerly governed them and which are inhabited by peoples not yet able to stand by themselves…there should be applied the principle that the well being and development of such people form a sacred trust of civilisation and that the securities for the performance of this trust should be embodied in this Covenant”.
Also the British Government in a White Paper, May 17 1939, concluded;
- “The proposal of partition recommended by the Royal Commission, namely the establishment of self-supporting independent Arab and Jewish states within Palestine, has been found to be impracticable.
- His Majesty’s Government now declares unequivocally that it is not part of their policy that Palestine should become a Jewish state.
- The object of His Majesty’s Government is the establishment within 10 years (i.e., by the end of its Mandate) of an independent Palestine State…in which Arabs and Jews share in government in such a way as to ensure that the essential interests of each community are safeguarded”.
But the Zionists managed to threaten and bribe politicians and using the Balfour Declaration as prove of their right of a Jewish State. And so started the Palestinian’s Nakba, their ‘holocaust’!
If we are to slow Global Warming down (it is too late to stop it), we have to stop using fossil fuels. We cannot proceed with further oil & gas exploitation, especially unconventional fossil fuels like shale gas. From people’s experience in the USA and Australia, there is the added environmental issues from High Pressure horizontal slick-water hydraulic fracturing (fracking), there is no place for it, anywhere!
As for the Environmental Agency (EA) and Health and Safety Executive (HSE), they are no longer fit for purpose. They only deal with incidents, after the fact, when it is too late to save life and the environment. Politicains should be acting on the ‘Precautionary Principle’, not business before people.
The USA has engaged in occupation, war, ,genocide, regime change and globalisation since its independence. It has always tried to blame others, but the blame Russia hysteria, is a reflection of its arrogant selfish nature. Boycott all USA products where you can.
I’m really struggling with this whole “blame Russia” hysteria. I’m troubled by DT winning the election and it seems like a cosmic joke. I’m horrified by the people appointed to be in charge of departments that are supposedly for the common good, when they have all built their careers on enriching private individuals at the cost of social good. Secretary of education that sells private education. Secretary of state that runs the world’s largest oil company. Not that any of it is surprising. If you have been paying any attention behind the the scenes for even just a few years you know that the USA has been functioning as a private enterprise for the very rich for the past 30 years. Private prisons. Private healthcare. Private schools. Private mercenary squads in faraway deserts and during peaceful protests at home. Oil lobbyists setting the foreign agenda. The media faithfully reporting on…
