Are you an “enemy of the Government of Canada”? Or perhaps only an enemy of the Harper Government?

Leadnow.ca has brought to light some more information about how the present Harper Government is beginning to use backroom threats against companies in Canada in order to avoid any media scrutiny.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

This week, we learned that the Harper Government is using closed-door intimidation tactics against Canadian charities. They’re trying to silence groups that question our government’s plans to push the Enbridge western pipeline and supertankers project through overwhelming local opposition, and recklessly expand the tar sands at all costs.

A whistleblower just revealed that the Prime Minister’s Office threatened to revoke the charitable status of Tides Canada if they continue their support for ForestEthics, an environmental group that has engaged thousands of Canadians in the public hearings about the Enbridge project.[1]

According to the whistleblower, a former senior communications manager for ForestEthics named Andrew Frank, the Prime Minister’s Office told Tides Canada they consider ForestEthics to be an “enemy of the Government of Canada” because of the group’s opposition to the Enbridge pipeline and tar sands expansion.[1]

This is about more than our jobs and environment. It’s about our rights and our democracy, and we need to speak out now. Together, we can stop these closed-door intimidation tactics by shining a bright light of public attention on our government’s actions.

http://www.leadnow.ca/stop-the-threats

While we don’t know exactly what was said behind closed doors, the Globe and Mail reports that the Harper Government has called ForestEthics a group “acting against the government of Canada and people of Canada” in private meetings designed to intimidate charitable funders.[2] And Peter Robinson, the Chief Executive Officer of the David Suzuki Foundation, says that environmental groups are “right to worry” that the government will threaten the charitable status of groups they disagree with in order to shut down debate.[3]

The latest threats are part of a much larger pattern. Internal documents from March 2011 outline the Harper Government’s strategy to spend Canadian tax dollars on a PR and lobbying campaign to derail Europe’s climate and environmental policy. The foreign lobbying strategy lists First Nations and environmental groups as the government’s “adversaries,” while oil companies, industry associations, and the National Energy Board are listed as the government’s “allies.”[4]

Our government’s job is to provide a free and open forum for Canadians to hear the arguments and evidence for and against the Enbridge western pipeline and oil supertanker project, so that together we can decide whether or not the project is in Canada’s best interests.
Instead, Prime Minister Harper is abusing the power of government to silence Canadians who are concerned about a project that will kill jobs, destabilize the climate and threaten our salmon and coast.

The public hearings about the Enbridge western pipeline and supetanker project are now severely compromised in three ways:

1. The Harper Government has directly biased the hearings with a massive PR campaign to discredit environmental organizations as “foreign special interests” and “radical groups” while privately threatening Canadian charities.[5]

2. The National Energy Board has stacked the deck for the Enbridge western pipeline and supertanker hearings by issuing a directive that muzzles any discussion about the environmental impacts of the tar sands. In this way, they’ve ensured the hearings will overstate the benefits of the pipeline by ignoring the major costs of expanding the tar sands.[6]

3. The National Energy Board has committed to “consult” with First Nations, but it has not committed to respect the rights of First Nations to “free, prior and informed consent” over any project that affects their territory. Over 70 First Nations groups, covering the entire proposed path of the pipeline and much of the BC coast, have already stood together to oppose the project.[7,8]

We are seeing a radical shift in our national conversation, an aggressive attempt to poison the well of debate with public smears and private threats against organizations that Canadians have built to help us all have a voice on the issues that matter.

N.A.T.O. Charged For War Crimes: Should charge the United Nations as well

We are well aware of the atrocities committed against the People of Libya and Just government of Libya by the vapid United Nations and the military wing N.A.T.O. – all organizations that Canada should not be a member of or supporter of – including conspiring with Islamists to murder Comrade Muammar. We can only hope that as fond as they are of trying governments in absentia, the United Nations(hypocrites) are prepared to charge N.A.T.O. for War Crimes. A great article in Pravda.ru sums up the reasons that those who already read my BLOG are familiar with. See the article below

The law case of the century: Indictment against NATO military and political leaders

06.11.2011

The law case of the century: Indictment against NATO military and political leaders (UPDATED)

NATO: Indictment for breach of international law in the Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya. The military and political leaders of NATO are hereby accused of the following crimes committed in the Libyan campaign of 2011, in which the systematic breaches of international law are underlined.

Understanding that international law exists and that it is systematically broken by certain powers with impunity, understanding that such a situation is unacceptable and that the same set of laws should apply to all, equally, with the same sets of weights and measures employed in upholding it, I hereby accuse NATO and the below-mentioned individuals, party to its acts in the Great Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriya from February to September (ongoing) 2011, of breach of international law;

1. Accusation: NATO war crimes, crimes against humanity, breach of UN Charter, Breach of UNSC Resolutions, breach of Geneva Conventions, occasioning murder, attempted murder, actions occasioning grievous and actual bodily harm, destruction of private and public property.

2. Accused:

Anders Fogh Rasmussen (Denmark) NATO Secretary-General; Charles Bouchard (Canada), Commander of Operations; Nicolas Sarkozy, Édouard Guillaud (France); Rinaldo Veri, Commander Allied Maritime Command (Italy); David Cameron, Sir Stuart Peach (UK); Barack Obama, Carter Ham, Sam Locklear (USA); Harald Sunde (Norway), Abdullah II (Jordan); Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani (Qatar), Khalifa bin Zayed al Nahyan (UAE); Sverker Goranson (Sweden) and the Defence Ministers Pieter de Crem (Belgium), Anuy Angelov (Bulgaria), Gitte Lillelund Bech (Denmark); Panos Beglitis (Greece); Hans Hillen (Netherlands); Gabriel Oprea (Romania);Carme Chacón Piqueras (Spain); Ismet Yilmaz (Turkey), Liam Fox (UK), Ignazio La Russa (Italy), Gérard Longuet (France).

William Hague (UK), Hillary Clinton (USA) Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini

(?)

3. Law and breaches:

3.1 Proper procedure was not followed: Under the UN Charter, any military action which comes outside a UNSC Resolution in any theatre of conflict must necessarily come from a separate Resolution in the UNSC and any military action must come after the Military Council is convened. This was not the case under UNSC Resolutions 1970 and 1973 (2011) covering the Libyan conflict.

Why did NATO not convene the Military Staff Committee of the UNSC? Under the UN Charter, Chapter VII, Article 46: “Plans for the application of armed force shall be made by the Security Council with the assistance of the Military Staff Committee”. Such committee was never convened.

This is a violation of the UN Charter rendering Resolutions 1970 and 1973 (2011) void; There is also evidence that such Resolutions were passed on the evidence from a false flag event. The supposed crimes committed by the Libyan authorities have been hotly contested and must be investigated;

3.2 Intervention in domestic affairs of a sovereign state: UNSC Resolution 2131 (XX) of 21 December 1965, containing the Declaration on the Inadmissibility of Intervention in the Domestic Affairs of States was backed up by Resolutions 31/91 of 14 December 1976, 32/153 of 19 December 1977, 33/74 of 15 December 1978, 34/101 of 14 December 1979 and 35/159 of 12 December 1980 on non-interference in the internal affairs of States.

3.3 Bombardment of undefended buildings and structures: Article 3 of the Statute of The Hague International Penal Court which states clearly that one criterion for indictment for war crimes is:

“Attack or bombardment, by whatever means, against undefended cities, towns, villages, buildings or houses”.

Another clause of the same Article 3 could also be invoked:

“Massive destruction of cities, towns or villages or destruction not justified by military necessity”.

The attack on Libya’s water supply network on Friday July 22 and the attack on the factory making pipes for the supply system on Saturday July 23 in al-Brega were not covered under “military necessity” in which case, under Article 3, this was an act of wanton destruction of civilian structures with military hardware. This renders NATO liable for trial by its own court, the ICC at The Hague;

3.4 Support for outlawed organizations and individuals. Despite this admission:

http://www.homeoffice.gov.uk/publications/counter-terrorism/
proscribed-terror-groups/proscribed-groups?view=Binary …

There is evidence that armed groups fighting inside Libya include the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group (LIFG) which according to the British Government: “The LIFG seeks to replace the current Libyan regime with a hard-line Islamic state. The group is also part of the wider global Islamist extremist movement, as inspired by Al Qa’ida. The group has mounted several operations inside Libya, including a 1996 attempt to assassinate Mu’ammar Qadhafi” and for which reason is on the Home Office list of proscribed terrorist groups, despite this, the UK aided and abetted the said group;

3.5 Failure to apply international law: Under the UN Charter, Chapter VI, Article 33, member states must “seek a solution by negotiation, enquiry, mediation, conciliation, arbitration, judicial settlement, resort to regional agencies or arrangements, or other peaceful means of their own choice”.

3.6 The Jamahiriya Government of Libya had the right to defend itself without being attacked: Chapter VII, Article 51 refers to the right of States to defend themselves against armed insurgency:

“Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self-defence if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations, until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security. Measures taken by Members in the exercise of this right of self-defence shall be immediately reported to the Security Council and shall not in any way affect the authority and responsibility of the Security Council under the present Charter to take at any time such action as it deems necessary in order to maintain or restore international peace and security”;

3.7 Mercenaries: UNSC Resolution 1973 (2011), in its Chapter on Protection of Civilians, in paragraph 4. states:

“4. Authorizes Member States that have notified the Secretary-General, acting nationally or through regional organizations or arrangements, and acting in cooperation with the Secretary-General, to take all necessary measures, notwithstanding paragraph 9 of resolution 1970 (2011), to protect civilians and civilian populated areas under threat of attack in the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, including Benghazi, while excluding a foreign occupation force of any form on any part of Libyan territory, and requests the Member States concerned to inform the Secretary-General immediately of the measures they take pursuant to the authorization conferred by this paragraph which shall be immediately reported to the Security Council;

There have been numerous reports of mercenaries being used by NATO and the rebels it supported; French Foreign Legion, Egyptians, Qataris, UAE forces, among others;

3.8 Boots on the ground: UNSC Resolution 1970 (2011) Paragraph 16:

“16. Deplores the continuing flows of mercenaries into the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya and calls upon all Member States to comply strictly with their obligations under paragraph 9 of resolution 1970 (2011) to prevent the provision of armed mercenary personnel to the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya;”.

If David Cameron has admitted that UK special services have assisted the terrorists on the ground, this is against the UN mandate which allowed NATO to intervene in Libya, and is a war crime.

A request has been sent (August 30) to the British FCO and Ministry of Defence to confirm or deny that troops have been used in the theatre of operations; no reply has been forthcoming;

3.9 Non-enforcement of UN Resolution, and violation of international law, by transporting rebel forces to enter the theatre of operations:

UNSC Resolution 1970 (2011):

In the Chapter on Enforcement of the arms embargo, Paragraph 13 of the same states:

“13. Decides that paragraph 11 of resolution 1970 (2011) shall be replaced by the following paragraph : “Calls upon all Member States, in particular States of the region, acting nationally or through regional organisations or arrangements, in order to ensure strict implementation of the arms embargo established by paragraphs 9 and 10 of resolution 1970 (2011), to inspect in their territory, including seaports and airports, and on the high seas, vessels and aircraft bound to or from the Libyan Arab Jamahiriya, if the State concerned has information that provides reasonable grounds to believe that the cargo contains items the supply, sale, transfer or export of which is prohibited by paragraphs 9 or 10 of Resolution 1970 (2011) as modified by this resolution, including the provision of armed mercenary personnel, calls upon all flag States of such vessels and aircraft to cooperate with such inspections and authorises Member States to use all measures commensurate to the specific circumstances to carry out such inspections”;

In violation of this: supply of French Milan anti-tank missiles, Swedish Carl Gustav 84mm rifles, 68mm rockets and mortars and Maadi assault rifles from Egypt; this, in addition to the British, French and Italian military advisors helping the terrorists.

3.10 Violation of Geneva Conventions: NATO and the Transitional National Council have given the people of Sirte ten days to surrender or face a full military onslaught. This is not a cease-fire. While they await their fate, they will still be subject to artillery fire and NATO bombing, and food, water and electricity have already been cut off.

These siege tactics have been outlawed by the Geneva Conventions. In particular, Article 14 of the second Protocol to the Geneva Conventions states, “Starvation of civilians as a method of combat is prohibited. It is therefore prohibited to attack, destroy, remove or render useless for that purpose objects indispensable to the survival of the civilian population such as food-stuffs, agricultural areas for the production of food-stuffs, crops, livestock, drinking water installations, and supplies and irrigation works.”

The 4th Geneva Convention prohibits all forms of attacks on civilians and the collective punishment of civilian populations, so virtually everything that the combined TNC-NATO forces are doing to the people of Sirte is strictly illegal and in fact criminal.

Will the hypocrites of the United Nations (Imperialist Scum) be prepared to charge it’s own military wing N.A.T.O. with War Crimes? It is doubtful that they will ever accept responsibility for their actions.

“Might makes right”

“Do as we say, don’t do as we do.”

Perhaps it is time for all non-NATO member countries to charge N.A.T.O. in an international court in absentia and impose sanctions against all member states of N.A.T.O.? As unlikely as it is to happen, it is certainly deserved.

Division

There are two forces at work presently on the Globe. There are those who seek to maintain a division within the species in general and Humans that occupy the Planet. Humans like to believe that they “own” everything (my Planet, my property, my spouse, my children, my car etc.) In reality this is false. The Planet is not owned by any species and it is meant to be shared. The only differences that exist between Humans are the differences they create and impose upon themselves. This is not a natural thing. To serve the force of division is to embrace the present construct of Civilization Level Zero. Those who seek to maintain these divisions use many means such as country’s – the location of Humans on the surface of the Earth does not make them more or less Human -, Nuclear Family and all manner of religion but their most successful method is Capitalism. Capitalists do not seem to grasp that the currency they worship is an invention. The “Currency Slavers” manufacture currency – that has no value – in return for Human Labour. Only Human Labour has value. As long as the foolish Capitalists continue to strive to gain more and more of this paper currency, they will remain as slaves. It is this constant production of currency that is responsible for taxes, inflation, interest and debt. Under New Global Communism there will be no more of these things. It is in the interest of Humanity to accept the fact that only a United Planet will provide the Human Race a single voice. This is the construct of Human Civilization Level One.

We must not forget that capitalism serves as an invention meant to create differences. Currency is the root of much that is evil. Under New Global Communism, there will be no more currency. We anticipate that after the release of the book this coming Winter it will be received well and should produce champions to fight for the Human Race against those whose interest is these divisions. Soon there will be no more country’s, no more currency or personal wealth, no more nuclear family or religion. The next decade is going to be a very exciting time for Humanity. Remember that there are no Communist country’s in the world. True Communism will set the world free.

Video About Libya Provided by the C.P.G.B.: The truth about Libya

Here is a short music video and a talk with Harpal Brar.

Bob marley would have turned in his grave to know that whoever holds copyright over his song “War” (lyrics: untill there are no longer first class and citizens of any nation, everywhere is war…) uses it as a pretext to stop the truth about US / UK’s latest imperial and colonial war on Libya from reaching the ears of the masses… or some of them!

Here with amended soundtrack, we therefore present:

The report of a CPGB-ML led delegation to Libya in June 2011. What is the situation on the ground? Why should British, European and American workers support the Libyan people and their chosen leadership, Colonel Gaddafi’s government? Why should we oppose NATO? How is this linked with capitalist crisis and worker’s struggle for jobs, pensions and security?

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

This is only the beginning of the vapid United Nations waging war on the sovereign countries in order to impose their own Imperialist Regimes. Just wait and see the horrors to soon befall the citizens of Libya now that they have become a colony under the U.N.

Evidence mounts of atrocities by Libyan “rebels”

29 August 2011

A series of reports from journalists on the ground in Tripoli have provided evidence of mass killings by the NATO-backed forces in the Libyan civil war. These reports, which appear in publications largely supportive of the US-NATO intervention to overthrow the regime of Muammar Gaddafi, further expose the fraudulent claim that the imperialist war against Libya is driven by humanitarian motives and the desire to protect civilian lives.

The Washington Post carried a prominent report Saturday, headlined, “Revenge Killings Mount in Libya, Extrajudicial Attacks by Rebels Cast Shadow Over New Freedom.” The headline refers to the contradiction between the claims by the National Transitional Council (NTC), the new NATO-backed regime in Libya, as well as the Obama administration that what is taking place is a new birth of freedom in Libya and the reality of politically directed and in some cases racially motivated slaughter.

Post reporter Simon Denyer asserts that Gaddafi’s troops “executed scores or even hundreds of political prisoners this week, even as victorious rebel fighters appear to have carried out their own abuses.” He cites the testimony of Diana Eltahawy, Libya researcher for Amnesty International, who “described a record of abuse, torture and the extrajudicial killing of captured pro-Gaddafi fighters that has followed the rebels from east to west as they have taken over the country.”

The reporter himself saw five Gaddafi soldiers wounded and dying in a field hospital now patrolled by the “rebels,” without receiving food, water or medical attention, and 15 bodies, mainly of black Africans presumed to be Gaddafi supporters, left to rot in the sun outside the Bab al-Aziziyah compound where much of Gaddafi’s family lived. According to Denyer, “not all of them looked like ordinary battlefield deaths. Two dead men lay face down on the grass, their hands bound behind their backs with plastic cuffs.”

McClatchy News Service reported the same gruesome scene: “The dead apparently had been pro-Gaddafi fighters, but they had not gone down fighting. Some had been shot inside their tents, possibly asleep, without shoes on. One had been shot inside an ambulance and another had been shot inside a field hospital, still hooked to an intravenous drip. Others had gunshot wounds in the back of their heads, fueling speculation of executions by rebel fighters.”

Patrick Cockburn of the British Independent described the same scene Sunday, under the headline, “Rebels Wreak Revenge on Dictator’s Men.” He wrote: “The rotting bodies of 30 men, almost all black and many handcuffed, slaughtered as they lay on stretchers and even in an ambulance in central Tripoli, are an ominous foretaste of what might be Libya’s future. The incoming regime makes pious statements about taking no revenge on pro-Gaddafi forces, but this stops short of protecting those who can be labeled mercenaries. Any Libyan with a black skin accused of fighting for the old regime may have a poor chance of survival.”

Amnesty International has confirmed that many of the hundreds of thousands of migrant workers from sub-Saharan Africa have been labeled “mercenaries” by the NTC forces, by virtue of their skin color, and subjected to imprisonment, torture and summary execution.

One account of rebel abuses comes from Alex Crawford of Sky News, a British broadcast network owned by Rupert Murdoch that has enthusiastically backed the “rebels.” The correspondent was embedded with the anti-Gaddafi forces and accompanied a unit that marched from Zawiya into Tripoli. “We report it as we see it,” she said. “We saw Gaddafi fighters who were tied up and executed. It’s war. This is what happens. Rebel retaliations here are really upsetting.”

The British news agency Reuters reported the finding of several mass graves in Tripoli, claiming they were evidence of “widespread summary killings during the battle for the Libyan capital.” While attributing the worst single killing, some 53 bodies found in a burned-out warehouse, to Gaddafi’s forces, the Reuters report continued, “Reports of cold-blooded killings by both sides have surfaced in the last few days, darkening the atmosphere in a city where many residents had greeted Gaddafi’s fall with joy.”

The Los Angeles Times on Sunday wrote of “the visceral violence of rebel forces hammering away at residential neighborhoods known to be strongholds of Kadafi supporters. Rebel fighters use artillery and antiaircraft guns in such districts, which include Abu Salim, Hadba and Salahadin. At one point this week, rebels were firing assault rifles into residential apartment blocks in Abu Salim, where they suspected a sniper was holed up.”

In other words, the NATO-backed forces are engaged in precisely the same indiscriminate firing of heavy weapons in residential neighborhoods that provided the original pretext for the NATO intervention, when Gaddafi ordered similar action by his own forces. The Times account ended by quoting a Tripoli taxi driver who told the newspaper, “I have a fear that one day we’ll be like Iraqis, wishing for the days of Muammar Gaddafi.”

The Independent, in its leading article Sunday, warned the National Transitional Council that the savagery in the streets of Tripoli would backfire politically. It was difficult enough for supporters of the intervention—like the newspaper’s own editorial page—when they could claim that Gaddafi was engaged in slaughtering civilians, but “it will become almost impossible if a shift in the balance of power unleashes mass executions.”

The British newspaper also identified Abdelhakim Belhadj, the newly appointed commander of the Tripoli Military Council, as a former mujaheddin who “had fought in Afghanistan alongside the Taliban and was an Islamist terror suspect interrogated by the CIA.” Belhadj was a founder of the Libya Islamic Fighting Group, which became the Libyan affiliate of Al Qaeda after the 9/11 attacks.

A chilling picture emerges of the new regime being consolidated in Tripoli. It is being consolidated in blood, with massacres of civilians in pro-Gaddafi neighborhoods as well as pogroms of African migrant workers, under the direction of an Al Qaeda ally who now takes his orders from NATO headquarters and the White House.

The crimes being committed by the NATO-backed NTC forces demonstrate the hypocrisy of the propaganda campaign spearheaded by the Obama administration and its accomplices in Britain and France to justify the military onslaught against oil-rich Libya in the name of “human rights” and preventing a bloodbath.

Some of the journalists on the spot in Tripoli have been unable to close their eyes to the bloody settling of accounts that is taking place. That is to their credit, and it demonstrates as well the cynical and reactionary position taken by those “left” commentators in the United States and Europe who continue to justify the imperialist war against Libya and cover up its predatory character.

The events unfolding in Libya are an object lesson to the international working class. Those who held out the prospect of a “progressive” intervention by the imperialist powers to defend democracy and human rights are now politically implicated in unspeakable crimes. The only genuine and consistent opposition to imperialism is that conducted on the basis of the historic principles of the revolutionary socialist movement, as advanced by the World Socialist Web Site and the Socialist Equality Party.

I’m sure it won’t take long for the Libyan People to begin another revolution to free themselves from dangerous, Islamic Rebel government imposed upon them by the vapid United Nations and their Imperialist Scum backers.

Exiled Libyan Monarchy Admits Role In Staged Uprising

Under the puppet Libyan Monarchy, Libya had one of the lowest standards of living on the Planet. Small wonder they were exiled.

Read the story below.

Exiled Libyan monarchy shamelessly admit their role in fomenting Libyan war

‘The Libyan monarchy of Idris, which was based in Benghazi, was installed by the United States and British in the 1950’s to oversee their economic and military interests in North Africa. Libya in 1951, under the leadership of King Idris, officially had the lowest standards of Living in the world. The Idris monarchy was overthrown in a bloodless revolution led by Muammar al-Gaddafi in 1969. This led to the American Wheelus Air Base (The largest American base outside of US at that time) being dismantled and the American and British armed forces stationed in Libya evacuating. The western oil companies were then nationalised.’

‘The uprising in Libya, which has been portrayed by many in the west as a democratic movement, has been symbolised by the tri-coloured rebel flag. The flag is in fact the flag of the oppressive, undemocratic, monarchy of Idris. At the start of the conflict elements of the rebels in Benghazi held aloft pictures of King Idris. Whilst by no means are all the rebels monarchists, it is however important to highlight the overthrown Libyan monarchy’s history, influence in Benghazi and relationship with the West. It is of no surprise then that the exiled monarchy of Idris has played a hidden hand in this conflict. Closely working with their old allies in NATO in an attempt to regain their lost status in Libya and ‘return to democracy’ as his Royal Highness Prince Idris bizarrely and unashamedly declares in his CNN interview.’

As a colony of the United Nations, it shouldn’t take too long before Libya has once again one of the lowest standards of living in the World.

Africans United In Defense Of Libya
They give the real reasons for this attack on Libya. Below I will provide an excerpt from their webpage.

… The real reasons for attack on Libya

The claim that the imperialists are attacking Libya for the purpose of rescuing the people of Libya from Gaddafi’s oppressive rule is a lie and a contradiction in terms.

It is like the Israeli State going to war with Hamas in Palestine, to free Palestinians and Palestine from the Israeli settler State.

France or the U.S. cannot save anybody from imperialist control, because they are the problem.

The primary obstacle to democracy everywhere is U.S. government; Gaddafi’s rule is a secondary issue.

Is it the fault of Gaddafi that the native Indians in America have been wiped out?

Is it Gaddafi’s armies who occupy Iraq and Afghanistan?

Is it Gaddafi who keeps 65 percent of CFA currencies used by 14 African countries in an operational bank account in France for the benefit of France?

Is it Gaddafi who funded the genocide of over five million people in Congo?

No, it is the U.S. and French governments that have done and are doing these things.

It is in this context of balance of power that the attack on Libya and Gaddafi’s regime must be understood.

An imperialist Europe and North America and an independent Africa cannot exist together; one comes at the expense of the other.

Gaddafi is known to be unpredictable, which means he is not a reliable puppet of the West.

Gaddafi is petty bourgeois, but he is his own man, and the potential of this man to be independent is also the potential of Africa and the African working class to be independent.

Libya is being invaded in order to bring it back under a compliable, malleable neocolonial rule.

French, Britain, German and other imperialists do not care about the Arab masses in Libya — or in Palestine, Iraq, Bahrain or anywhere else.

The attack on Libya is a desperate white imperialist attempt to end Gaddafi’s power over the region, which already recently has purged itself of two of the white capitalist powers’ key allies.

The west has a problem with Gaddafi because he is anti-Zionist, because his influence in sub-Saharan Africa is on the rise, and because they know he would readily purchase influence wherever such an opportunity and the possibility of alliances with emerging powers might present itself.

For example, it has been reported that Gaddafi “set up the $5 billion Libya Africa Investment Portfolio in 2006, investing in countries as far apart as Madagascar and Rwanda.

“Gaddafi was willing to back up his rhetoric on Africa with money.

“The Libya Africa Investment Portfolio has stakes in gasoline stations in Cameroon and Ethiopia, mobile-phone networks in Rwanda and Ivory Coast and a 506,000-hectare logging concession and sawmill in the Republic of Congo, according to its website.

“[The portfolio] also has shares in mining companies in the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of Congo, and poultry farms in Togo and Madagascar.”

All these factors explain the decision by the United States, Britain and others to invade Libya.

The aggression on Libya is the response by the western capitalist powers to the rise of popular movements throughout the region. It is also an extension of the colonial war policy started in Iraq by George Bush that has now been extended by Obama into Afghanistan, Pakistan and Somalia.

The U.S. counteroffensive also includes military aggression against democratic forces in Bahrain.

The U.S. uses democratic aspirations and “demands of the masses” of Libya as a cover while it pursues an imperialist agenda, which is the maintenance of a balance of power in the region that is favorable to itself.

Clearly, these aggressions are about maintaining colonial control over African’s resources.

If western imperialists are so concerned about the plight of Arab masses, wouldn’t they bomb the Israelis, who have used F16 jets to bomb defenseless Palestinians, or enter Bahrain, whose people are currently suffering a serious crackdown by an absolutist monarch?

It has been reported that after weeks of demonstrations, protesters, largely Shiites, which make up 65 percent of the population asking for a ‘constitutional parliament’.

They have come under a brutal assault in Bahrain where Hamad Al Khalifah, the Sunni King of the Bahrain regime now has the extra support of the Saudi Arabia who has sent over 1000 troops to help to crack down on freedom protesters, mostly Shiite, following them even to the hospital to finish them off.

One doctor said troops and police had been conducting constant searches, entering wards with sniffer dogs, and that they had split the casualties off from other patients.

“‘I went in on Thursday to operate and soldiers came into the room with their boots on and machine guns, right into the operating theater,’ said another doctor.

“‘We tried to tell them this is not acceptable. While I was operating they came three or four times. We were reconstructing the jaw of a man who had been shot in the face and had a shattered jaw… and it was affecting our concentration’.” …

Hopefully Things Will Continue To Grow Much Worse: Global Economy

It is curious to see how foolish the Media continues to play at the game of Fear in order to produce a sense that some great calamity will befall the population of the Planet Earth if the Greed-mongers who are responsible for this absurd, outdated Central Banking system are unable to continue with their wreck of the Planet.

– Currency is an invention that has been mass produced to serve the greed of so many that it no longer has any value.

– The Central Banks are privately owned and owe no allegiance to any government of Humankind on this Planet

– The perpetuation of this Myth that somehow the amassing of currency is vital to survive. These false belief’s that people require it for education, health, property etc.

In fact most people fail to notice that this is illusion. They do not own any property – go ahead and stop paying taxes, mortgage, rent etc and see how long you may reside in this dwelling you suspect is yours.-

Soon New Global Communism will release the new Manifesto that will reveal this fallacy. It will be distributed to the citizens of the Globe for free and translated into as many languages as possible.

These foolish Capitalists have done an excellent job. They have served their Masters well enough. Without them it would never have been possible for us to reveal the New Global Communist Manifesto.

World leaders confer on debt crises this weekend

ReutersBy Paul Taylor and Stella Dawson | Reuters

PARIS/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Global leaders on Saturday arranged a round of emergency calls to discuss the twin debt crises in Europe and the United States that are causing turmoil in financial markets.

After a week that saw $2.5 trillion wiped off global stock markets, they are under pressure to show political leadership and reassure markets that Western governments have both the will and ability to reduce their huge and growing public debt loads.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy, who chairs the G7/G20 group of leading economies, conferred with Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron ahead of a call planned for this weekend by G7 finance ministers and central bankers.

“They discussed the euro area and the U.S. debt downgrade. Both agreed the importance of working together, monitoring the situation closely and keeping in contact over the coming days,” a spokesman for Cameron said.

Standard and Poor’s deepened the urgency for action late on Friday by stripping the United States of its top-tier AAA credit rating, a move that over time could ripple through markets worldwide by pushing up borrowing costs and making it more difficult to secure a lasting recovery.

It cited the acrimonious debate in Washington on raising the debt ceiling and near political paralysis over the best way to reduce the its $14.3 trillion debt, which on the current trajectory could climb above 100 percent of U.S. national output this decade.

President Barack Obama called on lawmakers once again on Saturday to set aside partisan politics and work together and to put the nation’s fiscal house in order and stimulate the stagnant economy.

But the most immediate concern for financial markets was the debt crisis in the euro zone, where yields on Italian and Spanish debt have soared to 14-year highs on political wrangling and doubts over the vigor of budget cuts.

The European Central Bank was scheduled to hold a rare Sunday conference call. Markets are anxiously looking for the central bank to start buying Italian and Spanish debt on Monday to stabilize prices, a move that has split the ECB governing council.

Investors saw the ECB’s failure to include Italy and Spain in a relaunch of its bond purchases late last week as a sign of the depth of political divisions over the role of the euro zone currency. German officials want to see stiffer austerity programs in place before the ECB would shoulder more Italian and Spanish debt. The danger is that further pressure on Italian and Spanish bonds could undermine an already damaged European banking system and lock Italy, the world’s eighth largest economy, out of the market.

Italy’s Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, his government weakened by infighting, ruled out early elections to stem market panic. “This has never been an option,” Berlusconi said. Instead he has pledged to bring forward austerity measures and balance the budget by 2013, a year ahead of schedule — steps the ECB will consider to gauge whether to buy its bonds.

S&P’s one-notch downgrade of the U.S. sovereign credit rating to AA-plus, while not totally unexpected, adds another level of uncertainty. Loss of gold-plated status for the world’s benchmark interest rate risks pushing up borrowing costs on everything from car loans, mortgages and corporate debt to government bonds worldwide.

“However justified, S&P couldn’t have picked a worse time to downgrade the U.S.,” said Rabobank in a note to clients.

A senior European diplomatic source said the U.S. downgrade, coupled with Europe’s problems, raised the need for international policy coordination. G7 finance ministers and central bankers of the major industrialized nations were to hold talks by telephone on either Saturday or Sunday, the source said. Their deputies from the broader G20 were due to hold a call on Saturday evening, a Brazilian finance ministry source said.

A U.K. official said “senior officials” also would talk late on Saturday. There was no indication of whether a statement would be issued by G7 or G20 policymakers, the usual method by which they lay out policy steps designed to soothe markets or provide them with direction.

DEBT ADDICTION

China, the largest foreign holder of U.S. debt, took the world’s economic superpower to task for allowing its fiscal house to get into such disarray. It also revived its calls for a new stable global reserve currency to replace the U.S. dollar, gaining a sympathetic ear in the United Kingdom.

“The U.S. government has to come to terms with the painful fact that the good old days when it could just borrow its way out of messes of its own making are finally gone,” China’s official Xinhua news agency said in a commentary.

Xinhua scorned the United States for a “debt addiction” and “short sighted” political wrangling. China, it said, “has every right now to demand the United States address its structural debt problems and ensure the safety of China’s dollar assets.”

China and Japan have called for coordinated action to avert a new worldwide financial crisis. India’s Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee told reporters: “There is no need to unnecessarily press the panic button.”

Dutch Finance Minister Jan Kees de Jager said: “I am in constant contact with colleagues in other countries and am following the development of the financial markets closely.”

Recrimination flew thick and fast among U.S. politicians over its debt downgrade, with each side seeking to blame the other for the impasse over how to solve the fiscal crisis.

Senator Jim Demint, a Republican, said Obama should demand the resignation of Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner.

In contrast, French Finance Minister Francois Baroin said France had faith in the United States to get out of this “difficult period.” Friday’s U.S. unemployment numbers were better than expected and so things were heading in the right direction, he said.

“One should not dramatize, one needs to remain cool-headed, one should look at the fundamentals,” he told France’s iTele.

“There is no need for panic,” Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk said. “We will see in August, and maybe more intensively in September what the effects for the world economy will be.”

We can only hope the crisis will continue to worsen as it develops.

Never forget that only labour has true value, nothing else has value.

Communism and Capitalism Explained

It is absurd to note that the present Global Economy is something that seems to be a mystery to most people who do not even understand what Capitalism and Communism are. First of all we live in a Capitalist World. There is no Communism today nor has there ever been any Communist country’s in the World. All Countries have the same economy and that is one that is based upon Capital.

Capitalism: Once upon a time some individuals decided to make the transport of goods easier through notes of holding. These notes represented set sums being held so that to transport gold, silver etc. one needed only to present a note to a holding office and the value represented by that note could be redeemed. This went on to become our present currency system. Today the currency that is printed and used by country’s from their privately owned Central Banks are notes that have no value. They do not represent anything in holding as they did once upon a time.

Central Banks: These are private corporations that are owned by a small group of individuals that have managed to obtain from the governments where they operate a contract that enables their corporation to mint currency that is then used and then owed to that bank by the Government/People that reside in that particular country. It is absurd that this still exists as the currency they produce is just paper that is run off a press and based upon no actual value. The Federal Reserve is not owned by the U.S. government, the Bank of England is not owned by the U.K. government, the Bank of Canada is not owned by the government of Canada etc. It just goes on and on. The Trillions of dollars manufactured by these Private Banks has gotten to the point of absolute nonsense in regards to their value by the population that they do not serve.

When we examine the present state of such economies as Greece and the United States of America it is apparent that this absurd Private Central Banking system has finally reached and surpassed it’s climax and now it is time for us to observe the denouement. The New Global Communist Party will be the only Communist Party in the World. Communism is based not upon Capitalism or any form of Capital. This is what the New Global Communist Party will represent and soon offer to the World. China is not a Communist country, Cuba is not a Communist country etc. these economies are just different forms of Capitalism (Socialist Capitalism). All this will soon change with the launching of the New Global Communist Party.

We will be releasing a book entitled New Global Communist Manifesto: the Construct of Human Civilization Level One

This will be released after the official launching of the homepage for the New Global Communist Party and the social network “Brethren Of the New Dawn”-B.O.N.D.- Only after these websites have been completed will we be prepared to release the book to the public that will explain the present Global Economy and the future economy of New Global Communism that will be based upon Universal Labour Value.
