No Mas Muertes!

Perpetrators of the violence on both sides of this declared “war” have strong links to the US School of the Americas/WHINSEC. Ciudad Juarez Police Chief, Julian Leyzaola Pérez, accused of torture, arbitrary detention and violence against activists, is another graduate of this infamous school (read a UNHCR report that cites Leyzaola here.) On the side of the drug cartels,at least one third of the original members of the drug cartel known as the “Zetas” are deserted members of the Mexican military who have graduated from the SOA/WHINSEC.

Dedicated to the 99%

This is more than prohibiting flights by the nights
It is about awareness
It is about guarding our human rights

We have come together
We are grand
We are taking a stand
Maybe you don’t understand

The world lost
Princess Diana
Malcolm X
Dr. King
Gandhi
JFK
RFK
Back in the day
They represented
Collective voices

Today a movement has taken shape
Something astounding has taken place
Those superficial differences are being erased
Prejudice is unattended
The 99% have arisen

Collectively, we have become our own voice
And in togetherness
We know that we have a choice
To change course
In a tour de force
The world around has reinforced

And I have never felt so alive
Felt life so surreal
Felt so sublime
This feeling no longer an internal rhyme
Empathetic togetherness
A mountain of injustice we must climb

From racial profiling to corporate greed
Gapping and unjust income inequality
To lack of opportunity
All the way to banking and Wall Street crime
To the mountain top of democracy
We will climb
We will strive and thrive
Compassion
We will imbibe

Our Forefathers wisdom and constitutional design
Is still pulsating in our hearts and minds
This great nation shall surpass
This fascist attack
On the working class
At long last
May that greedy shadow that was cast
Become the dead hand of an un-American past

As concerned current residents of this planet, we welcome public hearings and official acknowledgment of the long denied practice of environmental geoengineering. Our descendants need our voices. Ban geoengineering world-wide.  Bravo longislandskywatch!

More than 100 wonderful people showed up to support the proposed legislation to ban geoengineering over Suffolk County, Long Island. The legislation was

In the south region of Mato Grosso do Sul, in the border of Brazil and Paraguay, the most populous indigenous nation of the country silently struggle for its territory, trying to contain the advance of its powerful enemies.

Expelled from their lands because of the continuous process of colonization, more than 40,000 Guarani Kaiowá live nowadays in less than 1% of their original territory. Over their lands there are now thousands of hectares of sugarcane planted by multinational enterprises that, in agreement with the government, show ethanol to the world as an environment friendly and “clean” fuel.

Without the lands and the forests, the Guarani Kaiowá have been coexisting for years with a malnutrition epidemic that reach their children. With no alternative of subsistence, adults and kids are exploited in the cane fields in exhausting working days. In the production line of the “clean” fuel, the Federal Public Prosecutor constantly sues the owners of the plants because of the child labor and the slave labor found there.

Amid the delirium of the green gold fever (the way people call sugarcane), indigenous leadership that face the imposed power many times find as their fate the death ordered by the big farmers.

The people united will never be defeated!

Geoengineering is the world-wide secret program to manipulate the atmosphere. The government now admits it has been “testing” the manipulation of earth’s atmosphere with barium salts, aluminum dioxide and other toxic compounds.  This experiment represents a clear and present danger to the health of all life and ecosystems on the planet.  And of course, we are all unwitting subjects.  Stop the subversive experimentation and curb fossil fuel consumption.  End deforestation.  Support clean energy technologies.  Consider our health and that of all inhabitants of our beautiful planet.

I like the sky just the way it is!   Stop weather modification!

 

692 Jungle and more jungle, I went up with him at 6AM to pull yucca from the earth. I walked a path I had not yet walked across a rushing river with huge flat boulders. I tried to keep his morning pace through banana fields and over jungle logs. Up on the slope where the yucca was planted we weren’t high enough for the Caribbean view or the overlook of the valley, we had only the view of more jungle slopes. For a moment, I had this feeling that the dense jungle went on forever and ever and ever. That where we were was all there was. Sometimes the jungle does seem that immense. Sometimes life does seem that intense.
