Julian Assange free walks to a plane for immediature departure from UK
international / rights, freedoms and repression / news report Tuesday June 25, 2024 21:11 by indy   text 1 comment (last - monday july 01, 2024 22:37)   image 7 images   video 1 video file
Julian Assange is finally free and it is reason to celebrate as his condition had deteriorated badly over the past few years and at times it looks like the vindicative British and USA governments would lead to his death with the distinct possibility that if he had been extradited to the US he would have faced a sentence of 175 years in prison.

The change of circumstances came about because the Biden administration did a plea deal with him but this is not because Biden & co are anything but war criminals but because he did not want Assange's extradition hanging over the pending election where Biden's popularity is already dismally low.

So on Mon 24th June he was able to leave the high-security British prison of Belmarsh in the UK after 5 years in addition to the 7 years holed up in the Ecuadorian embassy in London. read full story / add a comment

Take Action for Palestine on Wed 5 June Naksa Day

The Palestinian trade union movement has called on workers across the world for support to end the genocide in Gaza. In their May Day statement, they called on the international workers movement to block the supply of arms to Israel, build BDS campaigns, make trade unions everywhere Apartheid Free Zones, and to pressurise governments to cease all forms of cooperation with apartheid Israel.

typical_day_full_of_chemtrails.jpg
international / environment / opinion/analysis Thursday May 30, 2024 00:01 by indy   image 10 images   video 1 video file

This month was designated as a Chemtrails awareness month and therefore it is an appropriate time to visit this controversial topic.

The story of chemtrails goes back awhile but it appears they really ramped up in the early 2000s. The key argument is around the difference between a contrail which is a water vapor trail caused by jet engines at high altitude and represent the rapid cooling of the ater vapor in tiny ice crystals that quickly evaporate again as opposed to chemtrails which do not disappear and linger in the sky for hours. The proponents say these are fine dust particles intentionally realized.

The skeptics simply say these long lasting trails are simply contrails. However this does not stack up and on any day you can simply look up and find aircraft with short contrails that disappear quite quickly and at the same time see chemtrails that linger across the sky.

The real controversy is over what are chemtrails made of and what is their purpose. More on this in the article referenced below.

Another key observation can be made through the use of the rather now famous website https://www.flightradar24.com/ which tracks and displays nearly all civilian aircraft over the entire world. This works because each plane has a transponder which emits key data about the aircraft height, speed, position, origin and destination and other data. You can buy a relatively cheap receiver that can pick these up at least 100 miles away and it is the linkage of all these hobbyist and professional receivers linked into the internet that send all the data for all the planes to a central server for display on the website.

On any day when an aircraft flies over your house, you can go to the website and easily find the plane and details about it. BUT you will find that for aircraft emitting the long lasting trails -i.e. chemtrails -they never show up on FlightRadar24. This would suggest that they are military or covert. And the reason is simple, they don't want people tracing back where they came from. For regular aircraft in the sky with short contrails, you can easily find them on FlightRadar24

So now it is on to a selection of previous stories covering Chemtrails. The whole area is filled with lots of confusing and conflicting theories and information and undoubtedly some of it is there to misdirect and discredit any serious investigation. But one should always start off from the observations and work from there. And that is something you can do by standing outside and taking notice.

No peace with the German conditions!

We have come, and we will stay. This house was occupied by people with Kufiya in 1989. In 2024 the Kufiya will return – whether you like it or not!

We bring you two messages:

The first goes to the “Red” Flora: We are not coming to your table. We'll go into the house, do our thing, and if you want, you can talk to us. But your plenum doesn't exist to us.

The second message is: The politics of every house that is not dependent on the German state can and will be determined by migrants and anti-imperialist leftists. Let's throw out the imperial NATO leftists and “anti-German” Israel fetishizers! The time has long since come.

The depths of depravity of Israel show no signs of finding new lows. In the past few months they have massacred thousands of civilians, collapsed buildings, hospitals, shot at people rushing to get food aid, shot aid works, dropped bombs on large gatherings of civiliams.

Today though at Middle East Eye they report on this story:
Israeli drones lure Palestinians with crying children recordings then shoot them

Last September, some Italian anarchists published https://ilrovescio.info/2023/09/22/sabotage-the-war-translation-in-various-languages-of-anarchist-call-for-a-mobilization-against-the-war-in-ukraine-en-es-de/ criticising Ukrainian anarchists for defending themselves and their movement against Russian imperialist aggression.

The argument is based on both ethical and factual points. I will start by commenting on the latter, as unfortunately it seems like these comrades have fallen into an alternative reality, shaped by Russia Today and other Russian-sponsored social media disinformation. read full story / add a comment

The Ireland-Palestine Solidarity Campaign, supported by scores of other Irish civil society groups, has called another National Demonstration for Palestine on Saturday 17th February, starting at the Garden of Remembrance at 1pm and going to the Department of Foreign Affairs on St. Stephen’s Green to bring our demands to the Irish government’s doorstep.


END GAZA GENOCIDE!
END ISRAELI APARTHEID!
SANCTIONS NOW!
FREEDOM AND JUSTICE FOR PALESTINE!

This march – endorsed by scores of Irish civil society organisations – has been called as part of the Global Day of Action for Gaza. Last month we made history with one of the largest demonstrations in Irish history, bringing 100,000 people onto the streets for Palestine. Let’s make this one EVEN BIGGER!

Tucker Carlson who has a following of millions and is even more popular since he was dropped from Fix News is of the few American journalist to challenge the narrative on many issues.

Given the NATO-Ukraine vs Russia is not going according to the plan of the USA to trigger regime change in Russia despite over $100 billion being wasted on it and at least 500,000 Ukrainians dead on behalf of US strategic interests and courtesy of the Nord Stream gas pipeline destruction carried out by the US that is leading de-industrialization of Germany and hence Europe, and of course the whole pretext of the war, then it is probably important that the public who have largely only heard the Western propaganda, should get a chance to hear what the other side has to say read full story / add a comment

Larry Johnson on his blog reports on the hideous actions of the Israeli state and how they are undeniably behaving like real Nazis.

He writes: If you thought that Israel has a highly professional, well-trained army, think again. The photo above shows the Israelis acting like the Nazis in Latvia in World War II. These men are not Hamas fighters. They are civilians. The bare chested man is a physician. Why is Israel, like the Nazis, photographing their victims after stripping them of their clothes? Also note that in the photo above you do not see piles of weapons. These men were not caring firearms. Just compare the photos. read full story / add a comment

The Israeli "Hannibal Directive" is the name of a controversial procedure used by Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) to prevent the capture of Israeli soldiers by the enemy and it says stopping them from being taken prisoner should be prevented by all means including up to killing their own forces. It seems during the Hamas raid on Oct 7th (2023), that Israel took this procedure to absurd levels and killed a lot more of their own including children to kill just a small number of their enemy. Then they used the death of their own by their own forces as the centre peice of the propaganda drive to launch and justify their genocidal campaign in Gaza.

The background for this comes from a report from Max Blumenthal of https://thegrayzone.com read full story / add a comment

There is clear evidence that Israeli has for many years planned to drive all the Palestinians out of their former ancestral lands and to drive them out of Gaza and then later the West Bank. Their current openly stated plan is to drive the South towards Egypt and across the border.

Right now they are bombing indiscriminately all over the Gaza and particularly northern Gaza to destroy everything and drive the people Southwards. At the same time Netanyahu has been embroiled in charges of corruption and political scandal and Israeli society is pretty much divided over his attempts to strip the judicial system of its power and make them political appointees.

So putting things in context, the whole idea that this was a surprise attack is extremely fishy and now evidence is pouring in to show that the whole thing has been orchestrated by sinister forces.

1st Nov 2023 “It became evident to US officials that Israeli leaders believed mass civilian casualties were an acceptable price in the military campaign,” The New York Times reported on Monday.

“In private conversations with American counterparts, Israeli officials referred to how the United States and other allied powers resorted to devastating bombings in Germany and Japan during World War II – including the dropping of the two atomic warheads in Hiroshima and Nagasaki – to try to defeat those countries,” the newspaper added.

Despite this horrifying knowledge, the Biden administration still adamantly opposes a ceasefire in Israel’s extermination campaign in Gaza. read full story / add a comment

On Wednesday evening, the Israeli army bombed many homes, buildings, public facilities, and a UNRWA-run school, killing dozens of Palestinians and wounding hundreds in the Gaza Strip.

Medical sources said dozens of Palestinians were killed and injured after the army fired missiles at a school run by the UNRWA near Nasser Hospital in Khan Younis, in the southern Gaza Strip, where families have been staying after the army bombarded their homes in northern and central Gaza Strip. read full story / add a comment
