The Little Children and Jesus

13Then little children were brought to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples (Peter etc.) rebuked those who brought them.

Jesus said, “ Don’t threaten the children, let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Jesus of Nazereth

It were better for him, that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should scandalize one of these little ones. Jesus of Nazereth

Who turning about and seeing his disciples, threatened Peter, saying: Go behind me, Satan, because thou savorest not the things that are of God, but that are of men. Jesus of Nazereth, Bethlehem his birthplace, is a Palestinian city in the Occupied territories of the West Bank

Peter Sutherland(The King of Globalization) AkA “The Davos Man”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Sutherland

Son of the late William “Billy” Sutherland, an insurance broker, Peter Sutherland was educated at Gonzaga College, a Jesuit day school in Dublin and then studied law at University College Dublin.

He was the youngest ever European Commissioner and served in the first Delors Commission, where he played a crucial role in opening up competition across Europe, particularly the airline, telecoms, and energy sectors.

Subsequently he was Director General of the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (now the World Trade Organisation). Later Mickey Kantor, the US Trade Minister, credited him with being the father of globalization and said that without him there would have been no WTO.[citation needed] The Uruguay round of global trade talks, concluded in 1994 with Sutherland as chair of Gatt, produced the biggest trade agreement in history and established the World Trade Organisation.

He is currently serving as Chairman of both BP and Goldman Sachs International (a registered UK broker-dealer, a subsidiary of Goldman Sachs) and is a non-executive director of the Royal Bank of Scotland Group. He has formerly served on the board of ABB.

He is on the steering committee of the Bilderberg Group[citation needed], a chairman of the Trilateral Commission[1] and vice chairman of the European Round Table of Industrialists.[2]

He is a member of the Comite d’Honneur of the Institute of European Affairs, and an Honorary President of the European Movement Ireland.[3]

He was appointed as a member of the Hong Kong Chief Executive’s Council of International Advisers in the years of 1998–2005.[4]

He is President of the Federal Trust for Education and Research, a British think tank. He is Chairman of The Ireland Fund of Great Britain, part of The Ireland Funds.[5] He is a member of the advisory council of Business for New Europe, a British pro-European think-tank.[6]

In 2005, he was appointed as Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Industrial Development Organization.[7] In Spring 2006 he was appointed Chair of London School of Economics Council commencing in 2008.[8]

Peter Sutherland also serves on the International Advisory Board of IESE,[9] the eminent graduate business school of the prestigious Spanish university, the University of Navarra.

In January 2006, he was appointed by United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan as his Special Representative for Migration. In this position, he was responsible for promoting the establishment of a Global Forum on Migration and Development, a state-led effort open to all UN members that is meant to help governments better understand how migration can benefit their development goals. The Global Forum was acclaimed by UN Member States at the UN High-Level Dialogue on International Migration and Development, in September 2006, and will be launched in Brussels in July 2007…

The next stage of his career Surtherland disclosed that he has decided to join three boards – at German insurer Allianz; Koc Holdings, Turkey’s largest conglomerate; and a Chinese shipping company. (likely COSCO as in the Coal and Oil ship threatening to break up and poison the Great Barrier Reef-right now April 7 2010.)
On 5 December 2006, he was appointed as Consultor of the Extraordinary Section of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See ( financial adviser to the Vatican-Pope Benedict).


Peter Sutherland created the climate for The Battle in Seattle.

The Battle in Seattle was also the birthplace of Indymedia.

Vatican a Global Nexus of Organized Crime, Bankers, Corruption, Globalization, and Entrenched Corporate Interests

Vatican Bank reported to be facing money-laundering investigation

December 7, 2009  Josephine McKenna in Rome

http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/europe/article6946507.ece

The Vatican Bank is under investigation for alleged involvement in a money-laundering scheme using accounts at one of Italy’s largest banks, according to a weekly investigative magazine.

Panorama reports that officials from the Bank of Italy’s Financial Intelligence Unit

(UIF) have identified transactions worth up to €180 million (£160 million) that allegedly

violated anti-money-laundering regulations in accounts held at a UniCredit branch in

Via della Conciliazione, next to St Peter’s Basilica. Prosecutors in Rome, led by Nello

Rossi and Stefano Rocco Fava, are reported to be working with a special unit of the

Guardia di Finanza, the Italian tax police, to investigate the bank — which is formally

known as the Institute for Religious Works (IOR)…

In that period, it said that more than €180 million in cheques and transfers moved through the accounts. The magazine named a manager at the branch who it claimed had a close relationship with Lelio Scaletti, a former director of the IOR, who left the Vatican Bank in October 2007. This is the most serious investigation of the Vatican Bank since the 1982 collapse of Banco Ambrosiano, in which it was the major shareholder. Ambrosiano collapsed with the Vatican held partly responsible for $1.3 billion in bad debts. If the latest allegations are proved to be correct, they would be a blow for the new directors of the IOR, appointed two months ago by Tarcisio Bertone, Vatican Secretary of State.

In September Angelo Caloia, president of the Vatican Bank, resigned after 20 years,

with its five-member board of superintendents also replaced. The magazine claims the

investigation was the leading item on the agenda when the Vatican Bank’s new board,

now headed by Ettore Gotti Tedeschi, held its first meeting at the Vatican on October 27.

As investigators consider whether to interview senior officials from UniCredit, Vatican lawyers are understood to be considering whether to argue that the bank is outside Italian legal jurisdiction. In 2007 a Rome court said that the Mafia was behind the 1982 death of Roberto Calvi, the Banco Ambrosiano president known as “God’s banker”.

Vatican Bank Top 10 Money Laundering Destination

November 23, 2001 http://www.vaticanbankclaims.com/vatpr.html

About the Attorneys

Dr. Jonathan Levy is licensed in California and the District of Columbia and has represented organizations and individuals in a variety of Holocaust and Second World War related lawsuits including banking, insurance, and slave labor matters. Jon is also a member of the International Criminal Bar in The Hague and has a PhD in Political Science.

Tom Easton is a veteran California civil rights attorney. Tom has traveled extensively in Russia and Europe and holds a Masters degree in History.

According to one global source, the Vatican is the main destination for over $55 billion in illegal Italian money laundering and the number 8 destination worldwide for laundered money, ranked well ahead of such offshore havens as the Bahamas, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein.

In a recent report by the London Telegraph and the Inside Fraud Bulletin, the Vatican was named as a top “cut out” country along with the offshore banking centers of Nauru, Macao, and Mauritius. A “cut out” country is one whose banking secrecy makes it is all but impossible to trace laundered funds back to their source.

The Vatican Bank is desperately resisting a legal action for an accounting of stolen World War II assets in a San Francisco Federal court (Alperin v. Vatican Bank) filed by Serb and Jewish Holocaust survivors. Contrary to the above reports, a declaration filed under penalty of perjury by the Vatican Bank’s attorney, Franzo Grande Stevens, states in part that the Vatican Bank’s “fundamental purpose is to promote pious acts” and that its depositors “are essentially limited to Vatican state employees, members of the Holy See, religious orders, and persons who deposit money destined, at least in part, for works of piety.” Stevens also declared to the court that the Pope controls the Vatican Bank and that bank records are not retained after ten years.

It seems that the Vatican Bank, a major illegal money laundering operation, is hiding behind the benign image of John Paul II. Given the Vatican Bank’s alleged involvement with Nazi loot and current links to organized crime, a reckoning cannot be far off. The accumulating evidence points to a more piratical than pietical Vatican Bank

FORTUNE Exclusive Reveals That Vatican Has Plenty to Hide in Fugitive Marty Frankel’s $200 Million+ Insurance and Money Laundering Scam

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–July 26, 1999–investigative reporter Richard Behar

http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m0EIN/is_1999_July_26/ai_55246563/

In a tale of intrigue reminiscent of Vatican banking scandals in the not-too-distant past, a FORTUNE exclusive reveals how well known New York attorney Thomas Bolan, an ex-prosecutor and former Reagan Adviser, got caught up with several priests and Vatican officials in Martin Frankel’s web of deceit and alleged fraud in may what be the biggest scandal in the history of the insurance industry. “Washing Money in the Holy See,”…

The Vatican portion of Frankel’s money laundering efforts began in 1998, when Frankel, using the alias “David Rosse,” and working through a lawyer, Thomas Bolan, contacted Father Jacobs to set up a Vatican foundation in order to give “hundreds of millions” to Catholic causes, knowing that Jacobs’ close ties to the Holy See could help give him access to a safe haven for his money. According to a letter written by Frankel to Bolan on Aug. 22, 1998, a new foundation would have a “secret set of bylaws” spelling out that Frankel/Rosse would be the original grantor of $55 million in funds, $50 million of which would then be controlled exclusively by him and forwarded to a U.S. brokerage account in the foundation’s name.

Vatican Lawsuit Liability exceeds $1 billion

The Vatican, which has long claimed immunity to lawsuits, is now facing claimants seeking more than $1 billion.

Vatican Lawsuit Liability exceeds $1 billion in USA Courts

Insurance commissioners from Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, Okalahoma, and Arkansas have joined Holocaust victims and victims of pedophile priests in filing lawsuits against the Vatican and Vatican Bank. The Insurance commissioners are seeking over $600 million in a RICO (Anti Racketeering) lawsuit that has named several top Cardinals including two former Papal Nuncios to the United States and the Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Sodano, as co-conspirators with convicted financier Martin Frankel in an unsuccessful attempt to launder an incredible $150 billion in insurance assets.

Frankel who has plead guilty to 20 counts of wire fraud and one count each of securities fraud, racketeering, racketeering conspiracy and a forfeiture charge has been cooperating with the government in retrieving $200 million in missing insurance assets. Frankel faces 150 years in prison and will be sentenced next year.

The Vatican: Poison Gossip

June.18.1984 http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,951191,00.html

Charges of murder most foul On the evening of Sept. 28, 1978, Pope John Paul I said prayers in his private chapel in the Apostolic Palace, then retired to his bedroom a few yards away. It would be his last night alive: next morning, the Pontiff was found dead in his bed. The official cause of death was a heart attack. What made John Paul’s demise especially poignant was that he had been elected Pope only 33 days earlier.

According to Yallop, the murder was triggered by the Pope’s decision to purge the troubled Vatican Bank and cleanse the church of alleged ties with a clandestine Italian Masonic lodge called Propaganda Due, or P2.

Propaganda Due

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Propaganda_Due

Propaganda Due (Italian pronunciation: [propaˈɡanda ˈduːe]), or P2, was a Masonic lodge operating under the jurisdiction of theGrand Orient of Italy from 1945 to 1976 (when its charter was withdrawn), and a pseudo-Masonic or “black” or “covert” lodge operating illegally (in contravention of Italian constitutional laws banning secret lodges, and membership of government officials in secret membership organizations) from 1976 to 1981.

During the years that the lodge was headed by Licio Gelli, P2 was implicated in numerous Italian crimes and mysteries, including the nationwide bribe scandal Tangentopoli, the collapse of theVatican-affiliated Banco Ambrosiano, and the murders of journalist Mino Pecorelli and banker Roberto Calvi. P2 came to light through the investigations into the collapse of Michele Sindona‘s financial empire.[1]

P2 was sometimes referred to as a “state within a state”[2] or a “shadow government“.[3] The lodge had among its members prominent journalists, members of parliament, industrialists, and military leaders—including Silvio Berlusconi, who later became Prime Minister of Italy; the Savoy pretender to the Italian throne Victor Emmanuel; and the heads of all three Italian intelligence services.

When searching Licio Gelli‘s villa, the police found a document called the “Plan for Democratic Rebirth”, which called for a consolidation of the media, suppression of trade unions, and the rewriting of the Italian Constitution.[4]

Outside Italy, P2 was also active in Uruguay, Brazil and in Argentina, with Raúl Alberto Lastiri, Argentina’s interim president (between July 13, 1973 to October 12, 1973) during the height of the “Dirty War” among its members. Emilio Massera, who was part of the military junta led by Jorge Rafael Videla from 1976 to 1978, José López Rega, minister of Social Welfare in Perón‘s government and founder of the Argentine Anticommunist Alliance (“Triple A”), and General Guillermo Suárez Mason were also members.[5]

Criminal organization

The Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry, headed by Anselmi, concluded that the P2 lodge was a secret criminal organization. Allegations of surreptitious international relationships, mainly with Argentina (Gelli repeatedly suggested that he was a close friend of Juan Perón) and with some people suspected of affiliation with the American Central Intelligence Agency were also partly confirmed; but soon a political debate overtook the legal level of the analysis.[19]

The majority report said that P2 action resulted in “… the pollution of the public life of a nation. It aimed to alter, often in decisive fashion, the correct funtioning of the institutions of the country, according to a project which … intended to undermine our democracy.” A minority report by Massimo Teodori concluded that P2 was not just an abnormal outgrowth from a essentially healthy system, as upheld by the majority report, but an inherent part of the system itself.[7]

Licio Gelli’s list found in 1981

n May 21, 1981, the Italian government released the list.[22] The Parliamentary Commission of Inquiry headed by Tina Anselmi considered the list reliable and genuine. It decided to publish the list in its concluding report, Relazione della Commissione parlamentare d’inchiesta sulla Loggia massonica P2.[23]

The list contains 962 names (including Gelli’s). It has been claimed that at least a thousand names may still be secret, as the membership numbers begin with number 1,600, which suggests that the complete list has not yet been found.[7] The list included all of the heads of the secret services, 195 officers of the different armed forces (12 generals of the Carabinieri, 5 of the financial police Guardia di Finanza, 22 of the army, 4 of the air force and 8 admirals), as well as 44 members of parliament, 3 ministers and a secretary of a political party, leading magistrates, a few prefects and heads of police, bankers and businessmen, civil servants, journalists and broadcasters.[7] Also included were a top official of the Banca di Roma, Italy’s third largest bank at the time, and a former director-general of theBanca Nazionale del Lavoro (BNL), the country’s largest.[11]

P2 also boasted over100 members from the Vatican.

Profile: Propaganda Due (P-2)

Propaganda Due (P-2) was a participant or observer in the following events:

October 1980: ’Billygate’-Based Disinformation Campaign Erupts near Election; Orchestrated by American Neoconservative and Italian Intelligence Agencies

An Italian-American disinformation campaign has a profound effect on the US presidential election of 1980. With the assistance of Italian intelligence (SISMI) and the shadowy right-wing organization called “Propaganda Due,” or P-2 (see 1981), American neoconservative Michael Ledeen organizes a smear campaign against Billy Carter, the brother of US President Jimmy Carter. (Billy Carter is a self-proclaimed alcoholic whose escapades have provoked much hilarity among the US press and an equal amount of embarrassment in the White House.)

In the weeks before the election, Ledeen publishes articles in the British and American press accusing Billy Carter of having untoward and perhaps illegal financial dealings with Libyan dictator Mu’ammar al-Qadhafi. Billy Carter is forced to admit that he did accept a $200,000 loan from al-Qadhafi’s regime. The ensuing scandal becomes known as “Billygate.” It is not known for sure what impact the scandal will eventually have on the race between President Carter and his Republican challenger, Ronald Reagan; what is known is that “Billygate” erupted in 1979, was investigated, and had died down.

Then, less than a month before the November 1980 election, Ledeen and Arnaud de Borchgrave write an article for the US’s New Republic and Britain’s Now magazine that falsely alleges Billy Carter took an additional $50,000 from al-Qadhafi, and worse, met secretly with Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat. The articles reignite the scandal in time to affect the election.

In 1985, a Wall Street Journal investigation will find that “Billygate” is an orchestrated attempt by Ledeen and SISMI to throw the election to Reagan. Ledeen, who used SISMI sources to unearth financial information on Billy Carter, was himself paid $120,000 by SISMI for “Billygate” and other projects. Ledeen has a code name, Z-3, and is paid through a Bermuda bank account. Ledeen will later admit that his consulting firm, ISI, may have accepted SISMI money, and will claim he can’t remember if he has a coded identity.

P-2 operative Francesco Pazienza will be convicted in absentia on multiple charges stemming from the “Billygate” disinformation campaign, including extortion and fraud. Ledeen will not be charged in the Italian court that convicts Pazienza, but prosecutors will cite his participation in their arguments against Pazienza. Ledeen will deny any involvement with either Pazienza or P-2, and deny any connection to any disinformation schemes. In fact, Ledeen will say he doesn’t even believe P-2 exists. After Reagan takes office, Ledeen will be made a special assistant to chief of staff Alexander Haig, and later will become a staff member of Reagan’s National Security Council, where he will play a key role in setting up the arms-for-hostages deal with Iran.

1981: Italian Neofascist Organization P-2 Banned; Had Ties to American Neoconservative Ledeen
Propaganda Due,” or P-2, an informal, parallel Secret Service in Italy led by neofascist and Freemason Licio Gelli, is banned by the Italian Parliament, though the organization continues to function. (Gelli is expelled from the Masons the same year as P-2 is banned.)
It had a penchant for secret rituals and exotic covert ops against what it considered Communist-based threats. P-2 members swear to have their throats slit and tongues cut out rather than break their oaths of secrecy and loyalty. Author Craig Unger characterizes the organization as “subversive, authoritarian, and right-wing.”

It was sometimes called the “P-2 Masonic Lodge” because of its ties to the Freemasons. It served as a covert intelligence agency for militant anticommunists. It was also linked to Operation Gladio, a secret paramilitary wing of NATO that supported far-right military coups in Greece and Turkey during the Cold War. P-2 is banned by the Italian Parliament after an investigation found that it had infiltrated the highest levels of Italy’s judiciary, parliament, military, and press, and was linked to assassinations, kidnappings, and illicit arms deals around the world. The critical event was the murder of Freemason and bank president Roberto Calvi, who was found hanging from a bridge in London; the investigation found that P-2 may have been involved in Calvi’s murder. American neoconservative Michael Ledeen, who has long if murky connections with both US and Italian intelligence agencies, was a part of two major international disinformation operations in conjunction with P-2 and SISMI, the Italian military intelligence agency (see October 1980 and Mid-1981 through Late 1981.

God’s banker’ case re-opened

24 July, 2003 http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/3091635.stm

Italian prosecutors have concluded the Mafia murdered the Italian banker, Roberto Calvi, who was found dead more than 20 years ago.

Prosecutors have named four people suspected of carrying out the killing, and they have been given 20 days to reply to the accusations or face formal charges.

The original coroner’s report said that Calvi, who was found hanging under Blackfriars Bridge in London, had committed suicide.

He was known as “God’s banker”, because of his close links with the Vatican.

Those now facing a murder charge are Pippo Calo, a Mafia gangster already serving a long prison sentence, Flavio Carboni and Ernesto Diotallevi, described as go-betweens and Mr Carboni’s Austrian girlfriend, Manuela Kleinszig…

Calvi was found hanging from scaffolding beneath Blackfriars Bridge in central London in June, 1982 with bricks in his pockets and $15,000 on his person.

After the initial suicide ruling, a second coroner returned an open verdict on the 62-year-old banker.

Rome prosecutors agreed to review the case last year after an independent inquiry concluded Calvi had not killed himself.

Mr Calvi’s son, Carlo, was 29 when his father died and now lives in Canada.

He says he has said all along that the Mafia was responsible for his father’s death.

Calvi had worked his way up the corporate ladder to become director-general and president of the Banco Ambrosiano, which he transformed from a small regional bank into a major international player.

At the time of his death billions of lire was owed to the Banco Ambrosiano by several Panamanian companies which were linked to the Vatican’s Institute of Religious Works.

The Vatican denied legal responsibility for the bank’s downfall but acknowledged “moral involvement”, and paid $241m to creditors.

The bank collapsed in a scandal that implicated the Mafia and international freemasonry.

In their report, prosecutors say they believe Calvi was murdered by the Sicilian Mafia and mainland Italian mobsters, the Camorra, as punishment for pocketing money they had asked him to launder.
Five are cleared in ‘God’s banker’ case

By Malcolm Moore
Published: 12:01AM BST 07 Jun 2007

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/1553879/Five-are-cleared-in-Gods-banker-case.html

The death of Roberto Calvi, an Italian banker found hanging from Blackfriars Bridge in London 25 years ago remained shrouded in mystery last night after a court in Rome cleared five people accused of luring him to his death.

Mr Calvi, the former chairman of Banco Ambrosiano, was known as “God’s Banker” because of his handling of Vatican finances. Prosecutors claimed he had been killed by the mafia because he had lost some of their money and because they wanted to prevent him leaking details of a shady power network involving senior political and church figures.

Although the prosecution could not prove who actually killed Mr Calvi, it said that the five were guilty of conspiring to murder him and of handing him over to his eventual killers.

The defendants comprised Giuseppe “Pippo” Calo, the Sicilian Mafia’s treasurer, who is already serving multiple life sentences for the 1984 bombing of an express train between Florence and Bologna, in which 16 passengers died.

The others were Flavio Carboni, a Sardinian businessman who was with Mr Calvi in London before he died, Silvano Vittor, a smuggler from Trieste who helped get Mr Calvi out of Italy and Ernesto Diotallevi, a Roman loan-shark.

US Currency Wars With China Looms

March 21, 2010

Douglas A. McIntyre

http://247wallst.com/2010/03/21/us-currency-wars-with-china-looms/

A trade war between the US and China, with tariffs and taxes, recriminations and retaliation, may be a modestly troubling prospect compared to a currency war.

China’s Commerce Minister Chen Deming said ”The currency is a sovereign issue and should not be an issue to be discussed between two countries. He warned that if the US labels the world’s third largest nation by GDP a “currency manipulator” that China will take the issue to the international legal authorities, according to a report by Reuters.

The situation is likely to get much uglier than a day in court…

A currency war between China and the US seems inevitable now. China is unwilling to let the value of the yuan “float” and be determined though the normal forces of trade and currency trading. If the American government does plan to make a stand, it has no better time that to do it now  to strengthen its level of exports and use that to help the US economy recover. As a by-product, manufacturing jobs in America should pick up and unemployment should fall. One of the single largest issues facing job creation in the US is that the relatively high-paid factory job base has been decimated by the shuttering of many facilities in the auto industry. Most economists believe that those jobs will never be replaced. An improved ability of America to be competitive as an exporter of goods would bring back some of that worker base.

The Chinese government has little reason to back down on the yuan. Its economy depends on keeping its huge factory base operating as close to capacity as possible.

March 12, 2010 By Rebecca Christie

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-03-12/krugman-says-china-yuan-policy-depresses-global-economic-growth.html
March 12 (Bloomberg) — Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman said global economic growth would be about 1.5 percentage points higher if China stopped restraining the value of its currency and running trade surpluses.

Krugman said China’s currency policy has a “depressing effect” on economic growth in the U.S., Europe and Japan, as measured by gross domestic product. If China’s currency, the yuan, were not undervalued, it would have a “significant” impact on the global recovery, he said.

If we could get some change in China’s currency policy, it would help the world,” Krugman said today at an Economic Policy Institute event in Washington…

China’s Response

We should not be afraid of what the Chinese might do if we pressure them to stop this currency manipulation,” Krugman said.

Even The (US) Chamber of Commerce is Critical of Chinese Currency Manipulation

Last week, I wrote about the growing bipartisan consensus to confront China on its illegal currency manipulation. 130 bipartisan lawmakers issued a call to action and economists from left to right have come out saying something needs to be done to address this issue. Now a new player has entered the chorus of those calling for something to be done about illegal Chinese Currency Manipulation – the Chamber of Commerce.

The Chamber of Commerce has traditionally advocated for free trade on behalf of big, multinational companies. In the 1990′s, the Chamber lead the fight to get China into the World Trade Organizations. So, for the Chamber to abandon China is extraordinary. As the Financial Times notes:

The US business community can no longer resist political pressure for Washington to take a tougher stand against China on trade issues, according to a senior figure from the US Chamber of Commerce.

Myron Brilliant, senior vice-president for international affairs, who has previously helped to protect Beijing from hawkish trade policies, told the Financial Times: “I don’t think the Chinese government can count on the American business community to be able to push back and block action [on Capitol Hill].”

While Brilliant did not say the Chamber of Commerce would back legislative efforts to label China a “currency manipulator” , his lack of support for China is an indication of which way the political winds are blowing. As the story notes:

Mr Brilliant said corporate America’s attitude had changed in response to a range of “industrial policies” pursued by Beijing, including the undervaluation of the renminbi, which made it harder for US companies to do business and compete with China. He also cited the tough economic times in the US – particularly the near 10 per cent jobless rate – as making it more difficult to argue against tough action on China.

Paul Krugman calls for 25% cross-the-board tariff on Chinese goods
Howard Richman, 3/15/2010

http://www.idealtaxes.com/post3079.shtml

In a commentary in Sunday’s New York Times (Taking on China), Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman called for an accross the board 25% tariff on Chinese goods. Here is his specific recommendation:

In 1971 the United States dealt with a similar but much less severe problem of foreign undervaluation by imposing a temporary 10 percent surcharge on imports, which was removed a few months later after Germany, Japan and other nations raised the dollar value of their currencies. At this point, it’s hard to see China changing its policies unless faced with the threat of similar action — except that this time the surcharge would have to be much larger, say 25 percent.

Krugman dimisses widespread defeatism concerning Chinese retaliation, arguing that America has little to fear from China dumping U.S. assets. He points out:

It’s true that if China dumped its U.S. assets the value of the dollar would fall against other major currencies, such as the euro. But that would be a good thing for the United States, since it would make our goods more competitive and reduce our trade deficit. On the other hand, it would be a bad thing for China, which would suffer large losses on its dollar holdings. In short, right now America has China over a barrel, not the other way around.

Krugman is definitely on the right track. He is suggesting that the tariff rate should be proportional to the Chinese currency value. Since the Chinese currency is 20-40% undervalued, the rate should be 25%.

However, China’s trade manipulations involve much more than just currency manipulations. China could retaliate, for example, though tariff and non-tariff barriers to American products, as when it recently placed tariffs on American nylon products and chicken parts.

In order to prevent such retaliation, The tariff rate should be announced as being proportional to U.S.-China trade deficits. Not only are trade deficits a concrete measure, but they also give the tariff legitimacy since there is a special WTO rule which lets trade deficit countries apply import limitations or duties in order to balance trade.

With this mechanism in place, if our trade deficit with China comes down, the tariff rate would come down, if our trade deficit with China goes up, the tariff rate would go up. If our trade with China reaches relative balance, the tariff would disappear.

One of the Chinese government’s biggest trade manipulations involves its lists of approved products…

Report says China is squeezing U.S. firms out of its massive wind-power market

March 18, 2010

By JIM LANDERS / The Dallas Morning News

http://www.dallasnews.com/sharedcontent/dws/bus/industries/energy/stories/DN-wind_18bus.ART0.State.Edition1.3cefd15.html
WASHINGTON – U.S. companies are getting squeezed out of the big Chinese wind-power market even as Dallas investors are bringing Chinese firms here via a big wind farm in Texas, according to a new industry report.

“They’ve used every measure you could possibly think of to enhance production of renewable energy equipment in China,” said report author Alan Wolff of the trade law firm Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP.

U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk won a pledge from the Chinese last fall to drop rules giving preference to Chinese makers of wind-power equipment. But Kirk’s office hasn’t seen any evidence that the pledge has been carried out, said spokeswoman Carol Guthrie.

Meanwhile, Chinese manufacturers are entering the U.S. wind market under a joint venture led by Dallas investor Cappy McGarr.

McGarr’s U.S. Renewable Energy Group, with Cielo Wind Power LP of Austin and China’s Shenyang Power Group, is planning a $1.5 billion, 600-megawatt wind farm on 36,000 acres in West Texas.

Several U.S. senators have complained that the West Texas project would use hundreds of millions of dollars in U.S. economic stimulusfunds for wind turbines built in China. They introduced a bill this month that would halt federal funding of renewable energy projects until “buy American” requirements are written into law.

China farming the world to feed its economy

Critics cite strong-arm tactics forcing neighboring nations to grow crops

updated 11:22 a.m. PT, Sun., May 4, 2008

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24454249/

CHALEUNSOUK, Laos – The rice fields that blanketed this remote mountain village for generations are gone. In their place rise neat rows of young rubber trees — their sap destined for China.

All 60 families in this dirt-poor, mud-caked village of gaunt men and hunched women are now growing rubber, like thousands of others across the rugged mountains of northern Laos. They hope in coming years to reap huge profits from the tremendous demand for rubber just across the frontier in China.

As Beijing scrambles to feed its galloping economy, it has already scoured the world for mining and logging concessions. Now it is turning to crops to feed its people and industries. Chinese enterprises are snapping up vast tracts of land abroad and forging contract farming deals.

Laos’ communist regime touts rubber as a miracle crop that will help lift the country from the ranks of the world’s poorest nations. China is expected to consume a third of the world’s rubber by 2020, become its largest car market and put 200 million vehicles on the road.

But some Laotian farmers are losing their ancestral lands or being forced to become wage workers on what were once their fields. Chinese companies are accused of getting rubber concessions from officials and not compensating farmers. They are also accused of violating laws, human rights and the environment, under conditions described by experts as “anarchic.”

The Chinese companies in the north are a bunch of thugs,” says Charles Alton, a consultant in agronomy for international agencies in Laos. However, Alton says, the “unpoliced, unregulated situation” in northern Laos is ripe for exploitation.

The Chinese deny or don’t comment on such allegations.

Buying farmland abroad: Outsourcing’s third wave

Published: 21 May 2009Posted in: Abu Dhabi Fund for Devt, African Union, China, IFPRI, Nestlé, Nomura, Uncategorized

Rich food importers are acquiring vast tracts of poor countries’ farmland. Is this beneficial foreign investment or neocolonialism?

EARLY this year, the king of Saudi Arabia held a ceremony to receive a batch of rice, part of the first crop to be produced under something called the King Abdullah initiative for Saudi agricultural investment abroad. It had been grown in Ethiopia, where a group of Saudi investors is spending $100m to raise wheat, barley and rice on land leased to them by the government. The investors are exempt from tax in the first few years and may export the entire crop back home. Meanwhile, the World Food Programme (WFP) is spending almost the same amount as the investors ($116m) providing 230,000 tonnes of food aid between 2007 and 2011 to the 4.6m Ethiopians it thinks are threatened by hunger and malnutrition.

The Saudi programme is an example of a powerful but contentious trend sweeping the poor world: countries that export capital but import food are outsourcing farm production to countries that need capital but have land to spare. Instead of buying food on world markets, governments and politically influential companies buy or lease farmland abroad, grow the crops there and ship them back.

Supporters of such deals argue they provide new seeds, techniques and money for agriculture, the basis of poor countries’ economies, which has suffered from disastrous underinvestment for decades. Opponents call the projects “land grabs”, claim the farms will be insulated from host countries and argue that poor farmers will be pushed off land they have farmed for generations. What is unquestionable is that the projects are large, risky and controversial. In Madagascar they contributed to the overthrow of a government.

Investment in foreign farms is not new. After the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 foreign investors rushed to snap up former state-owned and collective farms. Before that there were famous—indeed notorious—examples of European attempts to set up flagship farms in ex-colonies, such as Britain’s ill-fated attempt in the 1940s to turn tracts of southern Tanzania into a limitless peanut prairie (the southern Tanganyika groundnut scheme). The phrase “banana republics” originally referred to servile dictatorships running countries whose economies were dominated by foreign-owned fruit plantations.

But several things about the current fashion are new. One is its scale. A big land deal used to be around 100,000 hectares (240,000 acres). Now the largest ones are many times that. In Sudan alone, South Korea has signed deals for 690,000 hectares, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for 400,000 hectares and Egypt has secured a similar deal to grow wheat. An official in Sudan says his country will set aside for Arab governments roughly a fifth of the cultivated land in Africa’s largest country (traditionally known as the breadbasket of the Arab world).

It is not just Gulf states that are buying up farms. China secured the right to grow palm oil for biofuel on 2.8m hectares of Congo, which would be the world’s largest palm-oil plantation. It is negotiating to grow biofuels on 2m hectares in Zambia, a country where Chinese farms are said to produce a quarter of the eggs sold in the capital, Lusaka. According to one estimate, 1m Chinese farm labourers will be working in Africa this year, a number one African leader called “catastrophic”.

In total, says the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), a think-tank in Washington, DC, between 15m and 20m hectares of farmland in poor countries have been subject to transactions or talks involving foreigners since 2006. That is the size of France’s agricultural land and a fifth of all the farmland of the European Union. Putting a conservative figure on the land’s value, IFPRI calculates that these deals are worth $20 billion-30 billion—at least ten times as much as an emergency package for agriculture recently announced by the World Bank and 15 times more than the American administration’s new fund for food security.

If you assume that the land, when developed, will yield roughly two tonnes of grain per hectare (which would be twice the African average but less than that of Europe, America and rich Asia), it would produce 30m-40m tonnes of cereals a year. That is a significant share of the world’s cereals trade of roughly 220m tonnes a year and would be more than enough to meet the appetite for grain imports in the Middle East. What is happening, argues Richard Ferguson, an analyst for Nomura Securities, is outsourcing’s third great wave, following that of manufacturing in the 1980s and information technology in the 1990s.

Several other features of the process are also new. Unlike older projects, the current ones mostly focus on staples or biofuels—wheat, maize, rice, jatropha. The Egyptian and South Korean projects in Sudan are both for wheat. Libya has leased 100,000 hectares of Mali for rice. By contrast, farming ventures used to be about cash crops (coffee, tea, sugar or bananas).

In the past, foreign farming investment was usually private: private investors bought land from private owners. That process has continued, particularly the snapping up of privatised land in the former Soviet Union. Last year a Swedish company called Alpcot Agro bought 128,000 hectares of Russia; South Korea’s Hyundai Heavy Industries paid $6.5m for a majority stake in Khorol Zerno, a company that owns 10,000 hectares of eastern Siberia; Morgan Stanley, an American bank, bought 40,000 hectares of Ukraine in March. And Pava, the first Russian grain processor to be floated, plans to sell 40% of its landowning division to investors in the Gulf, giving them access to 500,000 hectares. Thanks to rising land values and (until recently) rising commodity prices, farming has been one of the few sectors to remain attractive during the credit crunch.

The great government grab

But the majority of the new deals have been government-to-government. The acquirers are foreign regimes or companies closely tied to them, such as sovereign-wealth funds. The sellers are host governments dispensing land they nominally own. Cambodia leased land to Kuwaiti investors last August after mutual prime-ministerial visits. Last year the Sudanese and Qatari governments set up a joint venture to invest in Sudan; the Kuwaiti and Sudanese ministers of finance signed what they called a “giant” strategic partnership for the same purpose. Saudi officials have visited Australia, Brazil, Egypt, Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, the Philippines, South Africa, Sudan, Turkey, Ukraine and Vietnam to talk about land acquisitions. The balance between the state and private sectors is heavily skewed in favour of the state.

That makes the current round of land acquisitions different in kind, as well as scale. When private investors put money into cash crops, they tended to boost world trade and international economic activity. At least in theory, they encourage farmers to switch from growing subsistence rice to harvesting rubber for cash; from growing rubber to working in a tyre factory; and from making tyres to making cars. But now, governments are investing in staple crops in a protectionist impulse to circumvent world markets. Why are they doing this and what are the effects?

Food security is not just an issue for Abu Dhabi or the United Arab Emirates,” says Eissa Mohamed Al Suwaidi of the Abu Dhabi Fund for Development. “Recently, it has become a hot issue everywhere.” He is confirming what everyone knows: the land deals are responses to food-market turmoil.

Chinese farms cause more pollution than factories, says official survey

Groundbreaking government survey pinpoints fertilisers and pesticides as greater source of water contamination

Jonathan Watts, Asia environment correspondent

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/feb/09/china-farms-pollution

Farmers’ fields are a bigger source of water contamination inChina than factory effluent, the Chinese government revealed today in its first census on pollution.

Senior officials said the disclosure, after a two-year study involving 570,000 people, would require a partial realignment of environmental policy from smoke stacks to chicken coops, cow sheds and fruit orchards.

Despite the sharp upward revision of figures on rural contamination, the government suggested the country’s pollution problem may be close to – or even past – a peak. That claim is likely to prompt scepticism among environmental groups.

Why China is trying to colonise Africa

By David Blair
Published: 12:01AM BST 31 Aug 2007

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/comment/personal-view/3642345/Why-China-is-trying-to-colonise-Africa.html

No one alive at the close of the 19th century could have missed the “scramble for Africa”. A motley collection of robber barons, imperialist ideologues, explorers, rogues and adventurers – the likes of Cecil Rhodes and the appalling Leopold II, King of the Belgians – carved up the continent in the name of five European powers.

Today, few appear to have noticed that a second “scramble for Africa” is under way. This time, only one giant country is involved, but its ambitions are every bit as momentous as those of Rhodes and company. With every day that passes, China’s economic tentacles extend deeper into Africa. While Europe sought direct political control, China is acquiring a vast and informal economic empire…

The reasoning behind China’s new focus on Africa is simple. If its economic boom is to be sustained, Beijing must find more raw materials and new markets for manufactured goods. Chinese oil consumption is forecast to grow by at least 10 per cent every year for the foreseeable future. At this level of demand, its domestic reserves will vanish within 20 years.

Hence the quest for overseas oil. Yet Beijing’s options are limited. America and the Western powers have already snapped up the world’s largest oil reserves. Saudi Arabia and Iraq – with 45 per cent of the world’s oil between them – are in effect closed to China.

So the less developed tracts of Africa are an obvious target. Sudan’s six billion barrels of proven reserves – with more still to be discovered – have become of vital strategic significance to China.

These facts are of deep concern to many Africans. Their governments may welcome Chinese investment, but Africa’s independent voices do not share this enthusiasm. The consequences of China’s new role there have already been catastrophic.

Yolandi Groenewald reports on the concerns regarding land acquisition by foreigners in Africa

Poor people in Africa risk losing the few resources they have, as Asian nations — principally mainland China — buy up vast tracts of land on the continent at rock-bottom prices.

Other nations involved in what some have termed the new “land grab of the 21st century” and “neo-colonialism” include South Korea and India.

In Mozambique, Madagascar and Malawi locals have raised concerns and in some cases even resisted moves by Asian nations to buy land.

A new study by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), commissioned by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (Ifad), has rung alarm bells about the ease with which African nations part with their land, to the detriment of the poor.

A small B.C. first nation is making a personal plea to a series of Albertaenergy companies as well as China and other governments in hopes of derailing an Enbridge Inc. pipeline that would export oil-sands crude to Asia.

The campaign is a preview of a storm brewing between first nations and the backers of the Northern Gateway pipeline project. The 1,170-kilometre project would bring crude from Alberta to the northern B.C. coast, where it would be loaded onto very large crude carriers for transport to Asian refiners.

The project offers oil-sands producers an appealing alternative market to the United States, where climate change legislation has brought some uncertainty. It has, as a result, gained support from a broad swath of industry and government leaders.

But on some of the pristine, salmon-rich lands Gateway would cross – safely, Enbridge says – first nations are voicing growing concerns that the line will damage the environment and leave little in return.

On some of the pristine, salmon-rich lands Gateway would cross – safely, Enbridge says – first nations are voicing growing concerns that the line will damage the environment and leave little in return.

One of those nations, the Wet’suwet’en, took to Calgary yesterday in hopes of persuading energy companies to boycott the project. About 140 km of Gateway would be built on Wet’suwet’en traditional territory, and the group believes the environmental approval process for the pipeline will infringe on their constitutional rights, since it does not include a mandate to look into aboriginal rights and title.

To make their case yesterday, they hand-delivered letters to Shell Canada Ltd., Royal Dutch Shell, Husky Energy, Suncor Energy Inc., Chevron, Imperial Oil Ltd., Ivanhoe Energy, Korea National Oil Corporation and China National Petroleum Corporation. The group has met with the U.S. and Chinese consulates in Calgary, and also plans to outline its concerns to South Korean representatives.

We want to let these shippers know their support for the Enbridge project will also be supporting infringement on the Wet’suwet’en Nation,” said David deWit, the group’s natural resources manager.

A spokeswoman with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency said the review process “has proven over time to be an effective means” to consider environmental and social impacts. The panel’s findings will be used by the government “to fulfill its legal duty to consult and, where appropriate, accommodate.”

The Wet’suwet’en opposition comes as support rallies around Gateway which, along with a separate West Coast oil pipeline being pushed by Kinder Morgan Canada, is seen as a potentially critical link to foreign crude buyers.

A group of Alberta oil producers and Asian refiners has already handed Enbridge $100-million to develop the project, and on Thursday, newly-installed Energy Minister Ron Liepert said he intends to more aggressively look “at international markets for our oil and gas products.”

We have been too reliant on the U.S.,” Mr. Liepert said in an interview.

Gateway will cross the land of 50 first nations. Thirty have signed “protocol agreements” that allow discussions with Enbridge and provide funding for local traditional knowledge studies. Enbridge has not yet, however, signed a single access and benefit agreement with native groups.

Mr. deWit estimates that salmon in northwestern B.C. are worth $100-million a year.

3 Buoyed by its experience in Africa and Asia of winning friends and influencing governments by investing in massive infrastructure and energy projects, China is now setting its sights on Europe. Or, to be accurate, eastern Europe and the Balkans where the economies of the former Soviet colonies and vassal states still lag far behind their western European neighbours. Serbia, the heartland of what was Yugoslavia, is China’s first target for a multimillion dollar infrastructure project. Beijing and Belgrade have signed a preliminary contract for construction of a much-needed bridge over the Danube river in the Serbian capital. Last August Serbian president Boris Tadic went to Beijing and agreed to a “strategic partnership” which he hopes will make Serbia into China’s gateway to Europe. The optimistic theory is that Serbia is a wonderful location for China’s drive into Europe, especially as it has free trade agreements with the EU, Russia, Belarus, Turkey and the countries of the European Free Trade Association.

February 14. 2010 A Day of Lovers and Year of the Tiger

But I still want to tell the regime that deprives me of my freedom, I stand by the belief I expressed 20 years ago in my hunger strike declaration — I have no enemies, and no hatred. “None of the police who monitored, arrested and interrogated me, the prosecutors who prosecuted me, or the judges who sentenced me, are my enemies.

Liu Xiaobo

For hatred is corrosive of a person’s wisdom and conscience; the mentality of enmity can poison a nation’s spirit, instigate brutal life and death struggles, destroy a society’s tolerance and humanity, and block a nation’s progress to freedom and democracy.

Liu Xiaobo

Ask me what has been my most fortunate experience of the past two decades, and I’d say it was gaining the selfless love of my wife, Liu Xia.

She cannot be present in the courtroom today, but I still want to tell you, my sweetheart, that I’m confident that your love for me will be as always.

Over the years, in my non-free life, our love has contained bitterness imposed by the external environment, but is boundless in afterthought. I am sentenced to a visible prison while you are waiting in an invisible one.

Your love is sunlight that transcends prison walls and bars, stroking every inch of my skin, warming my every cell, letting me maintain my inner calm, magnanimous and bright, so that every minute in prison is full of meaning.

But my love for you is full of guilt and regret, sometimes heavy enough to hobble my steps. I am a hard stone in the wilderness, putting up with the pummeling of raging storms, and too cold for anyone to dare touch.

But my love is hard, sharp, and can penetrate any obstacles. Even if I am crushed into powder, I will embrace you with the ashes.” Liu Xiaobo

Liu Xiaobo, the conscience of China, was recently denied freedom at the appeal court of China for expressing his views

on human rights and political reform-sentence reconfirmed 11 years in prison.

Non-natives evicted from Mohawk reserve

INGRID PERITZ Feb. 15, 2010 12:00AM EST

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/non-natives-evicted-from-mohawk-reserve/article1468533/

Alvin Delisle and Pauline Labelle marked Valentine’s Day yesterday celebrating nearly 10 years together, while confronting a threat that could tear them apart.

Mr. Delisle is a Mohawk Indian. Ms. Labelle is not. As a result, Ms. Labelle was told this month she would have to leave Mr. Delisle’s home on the Kahnawake reserve near Montreal.

The eviction notices sent to non-natives like Ms. Labelle by the Mohawk council have ignited a firestorm over how far first nation communities can go in applying racially based membership policies. In all, about 25 non-natives in Kahnawake received the notices this month and were given 10 days to get out.

The move has drawn criticism not just from outside the reserve but within – including from Mr. Delisle, who is a former Kahnawake council chief.

“No one’s going to tell me who I can bring into my house and who I go to bed with,” said the 66-year-old Mr. Delisle…

Ms. Labelle, who had the eviction notice hand-delivered to her at Mr. Delisle’s home, says that she and her partner will never have children, so she doesn’t pose a threat to Mohawk survival.

“I’m 60 years old. I’m not making any babies. I’m not interfering in the community growing and I’m not taking over any property.”

‘Love often gets left behind’

The move by the Kahnawake band council to evict some non-aboriginal from the reserve is inconsistent with Mohawk custom and tradition, opponents of the decision argue

Love is a victim of the initiative by Kahnawake authorities to expel some non-aboriginals from the Montreal-area reserve, say critics of the move within the local Mohawk community who call it heartless and misguided.

“The real crux of the issue is whether a Mohawk can fall in love with a non-Indian in peace and whether they should be allowed to live in the house that is theirs in peace,” said Ellen Gabriel, president of Quebec Native Women, a group that promotes equality rights and better living standards for aboriginal women in the province. “It’s above all a human rights issue.”

The association has issued a statement saying the decision by the Kahnawake band council ruptures family units and the community as a whole and misrepresents Mohawk people.

As well, an editorial in the latest edition of Kahnawake’s community newspaper, the Eastern Door, castigated the council of band elders for meddling in people’s love lives. “As in many instances in this political world of ours, love often gets left behind, forgotten, thanks to some misguided attempt to protect our identity.”

“People come here because they fall in love,” said the paper’s publisher, Steve Bonspiel. “There’s a lot of fearmongering on the part of community members who don’t want non-natives here. I mean, it’s not like they’re knocking down the door to get in here.”..

Gabriel said there are better ways to preserve the community’s Mohawk identity.

“They’d be better to stop watching TV and listening to English radio. The people really eroding indigenous identity are the bootleggers and drug dealers. They’re the ones who should be evicted.”

Speaking in Ottawa, Indian and Northern Affairs Minister Chuck Strahl washed his hands of the controversy, saying it is the band council’s call who lives on a reserve.

Ellen Gabriel, president of the Quebec Native Women’s Association, and a noted Mohawk, believes the Kahnawake Band Council is doing all Mohawks a disservice by giving ammunition to people who accuse her people of racism.

She sees in the eviction policy a racist throwback to what she calls “colonial policies”, notably, she says, the Canadian government’s Indian Act, which tries to spell out who is and who isn’t an “Indian”. The danger, says Gabriel, is that the policy will chase off people who might have made a positive contribution to the Mohawk community. Gabriel speaks of a Mohawk tradition of adopting non-Mohawks who wish to join them to live under the Great Law of Peace.

For her part, Tracey Deer, publisher of the Kahnawake newspaper “The Eastern Door”, bristles at the eviction policy, which she deems racist and “self-hating”. Deer says the Mohawk people have been mixing with other races for centuries, and that the eviction policy amounts to a disavowal of her people’s ancestors, including, she says, a great many non-Mohawks.

Ellen Gabriel, Mohawk, 196?-
She is president of Quebec Native Women’s Association. She grew up in Kanehsatà:ke, , where her role models included her grandmother, mother and aunts who joined the Native women’s movement to fight for the equality of rights for Native women that were violated by the sexist policies of the Indian Act. Gabriel always had a passion for art that was encouraged by her parents. A child during the 1960s, the various revolutions that took place at that time inspired her to have an interest in justice and human rights. Gabriel received a Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in Studio Art, from Concordia University in 1990. She joined the members of her community of Kanehsatà:ke in March 1990 as they erected barricades to protect The Pines from the expansion of a golf course in the municipality of Oka. She was chosen by the People of the Longhouse and then by her community to be a spokesperson for them during the 1990 Oka Crisis.

Time to Evict Corrupt Colonial Band Councils (Tribal Governments etc), Fossil Fuel ( Coal, Gas, Oil), Uranium, Gold, Loggers Corps etc From Traditional Indigenous Lands

The time has come for traditional Indigenous Peoples and Allies of our Beloved Earth to evict the treacherous, corrupt, mass-murderers and rapists of All life.

Cowardly acts against the “small” peoples will no longer be tolerated-the “Goliaths” will be restrained and withered away.

The Security and Well-being of Our Beloved Earth, All Peoples and All Life are at stake-Extinction is not an option-therefore it is the End of the Road for the Wendigos and Goliaths.

Our old friend and ally Mohawk warrior, activist, Shawn Brant, had a different and beautiful vision for his peoples, one of well-being, justice, harmony and protection of all children and all our relations and our beloved earth.

Our friend always clearly pointed out the corruption and colonial bantustan powers of the band councils. He and other activists even occupied their offices, as have many native activists and youth from east to west and north and south coast ( on all continents)

When the federal government tried to tax native people on reserves, our friend Shawn Brant led the occupation of Revenue Canada in downtown

Toronto in the early 1990′s, we were there.

Shawn and other activists in the mid 1990′s trashed the Ottawa, Canada offices of the corrupt Assembly of First Nations.

Why? Because aboriginal children’s lives are lost tragically on a daily basis- all totally preventable except for corrupt officials, the government of Canada, exploitive and abusive corporations and their enablers and leeches(drug pushers-legal and illicit etc).

!!! When Justice Fails, the Tyendinaga Mohawks Block the Rails !!!

The Culbertson Tract was stolen from the Mohawks in 1832 and in 2003, the federal government acknowledged that the Culberston Tract was never surrendered and is Mohawk Land. Although negotiations for the land began, the land itself continued to be exploited by corporate developers and the government issued licenses to gravel quarry operator Thurlow Aggregates to remove over 100,000 tonnes of gravel per year.

In November 2006, the Mohawk community of Tyendinaga reclaimed and occupied the quarry and shut down corporate operations at the quarry. This served as a basis to launch a broader struggle to raise awareness on issues of theft of indigenous land, polluted drinking water, and overwhelming poverty and suicides in all indigenous communities. On June 29th, the Mohawks of Tyendinaga blockaded rail lines running through stolen land for upwards of 30 hours. Dozens of trains were stopped, business as usual in Ontario was ground to a halt, and the Canadian public was forced to consider the reality and struggle of indigenous communities.

As a result of these actions, criminal charges have been laid against Mohawk spokesperson Shawn Brant. Shawn was released on bail in September after having spent more than a month in custody at the Quinte provincial detention centre in Napanee, Ontario. He now faces a total of 9 charges and a minimum of 12 years of jail time if convicted, while living under bail conditions including a curfew.

It is clear that the severity of the prison time openly being sought by the Crown indicates the punishment the Canadian state is prepared to inflict on all indigenous people who take courageous stands against ongoing colonial exploitation and corporate devastation in order to defend and protect their land and their communities for future generations.

A Song for the People

http://www.hartford-hwp.com/archives/41/331.html

By Art Solomon, 23 October 1997

Grandfather, Great Spirit
I give you thanks
That we can sit here
In this circle of Life,
We send Prayers
And the very best thoughts

Grandmother Great Spirit
As we raise this sacred pipe
To give thanks to you
y And to all of your Creation,
We give thanks
To the spirit helpers
Who came and sat among us.

Grandfather, Most sacred one,
These are your prayers
That we send to you
As we sit here together and pray

Grandmother your children are crying.
Grandfather your children are dying.
The hands of greed
And the hands of lust for power
Have been laid on them
And all around is death and desolation
The gifts you made, for all your children
Stolen,
And laid to waste
In a monstrous desecration.

Grandmother Great Spirit,
As we sit and pray together
We send you this prayer of affirmation-
We your children whom you created in your likeness and image-
We will reach out,
And we will dry our tears
And heal the hurts of each other.
Our sisters and brothers are hurting bad,
And our children, they see no future.

We know Grandfather, that you gave us a sacred power,
But it seems like we don’t know its purpose
So now we’ve learned as we sat together,
The name of that power is love,
Invincible, irresistible, overwhelming power,
This power you gave us we are going to use,
We’ll dry the tears of those who cry
And heal the hurts of them that are hurting.

Yes Grandmother,
We’ll give you our hands
And in our hearts and minds and bodies
We dedicate our lives to affirmation.
We will not wait nor hesitate,
As we walk on this sacred earth
We will learn together to celebrate
The ways of peace, and harmony, and tranquillity,
That come,And in the world around us.
Thank you Grandfather for this prayer.

Art and his wife Eva Solomon were old friends and allies of ours.

Art an Objibway elder, storyteller and healer was the first elder to come to the aide of Anishinabe and Lakota activist Leonard Peltier- Art was an AIM American

Justice is 33 Years Overdue for America’s Most Famous Political Prisoner

Why is Leonard Peltier Still in Prison?

By MICHELLE BOLLINGER

http://www.counterpunch.org/bollinger07162009.html

In his memoir Prison Writings: My Life Is My Sun Dance, he wrote:

The destruction of our people must stop! We are not statistics. We are people from whom you took this land by force and blood and lies…You practice crimes against humanity at the same time that you piously speak to the rest of the world of human rights! America, when will you live up to your own principles?

Art Solomon, Ojibway Elder, died at sunrise, Sunday, June 29th, in hospital in Sudbury Ontario. He and his wife Eva had been living with his daughters for the past three years. Eva died early this year.

http://www.dickshovel.com/elders.html

It was in 1962 that the “fog was just lifting enough that he could see the Good Red Road” that he would follow for the rest of his life. In that journey he has never wavered, he has never compromised, never rested, never looked back.

He knew what was the right thing and he did it. Art’s decision was worse than unpopular. He was misunderstood, resented, criticized, scrutinized, harassed and rejected. “Of course, you were right” he would be told, followed by a stream of excuses and rationalizations about “being practical,” “being unreasonable,” “you can’t go back” to the past. It would have been easier, of course, if Art has been born Kesheyanakwan instead of having to become one.

His life has been an unfinished work in progress and Art has been its principle craftsman sculpturing the Creator’s original material with the guidance of the Spirit Winds. All the original ingredients are still visible but his life shape today could not have been seen, if imagined, until he was well into middle age years. He evolved into someone else right before the disbelieving eyes of his family and friends who were not yet prepared to join Art on the path he was taking. The events of 1970 brought Native people into the nation’s living rooms. Native crafts went into fancy galleries. Instant medicine men appeared on talk shows. Buckskin and beads became the high fashion.

Art Solomon was well placed to gain prestige, praise and prominence but he never changed his pace or direction. He continued to utter unspeakable truths in bold terms. He did not want urban comforts preferring to be in the bush with the Creator’s riches or in the prisons with the Creator’s forgotten people.

He went to the World Council of Churches who backed him to get the government to recognize Native Spirituality in the prisons. Art traveled with the White Roots of Peace and Four Arrows. He was a powerful teacher, an avid student. His wife Eva was always the fuel and he was the life.

Just by being himself Art created more than his share of enemies. Persons prepared to take only half measures felt criticized by his mere presence. Government people found him unsusceptible to the rewards offered to the native leaders willing to become “co-operative.” Many native people considered Art a threat to their own “hard won progress” with the government, which he called the “beast.”

“Native people have to make gains on their own, not by having the government do it for them,” said Art. He took the pain of it all in stride and just took the blows which unavoidably came. He insisted on pushing ahead where he knew he must go without regard to the personal sacrifices which he knew would be required.

CASNP is especially grateful for Art insisting that it remain a grassroots organization run by native and non-natives, and to refuse government assistance. The CASNP family has lost a really good friend in guidance and friendship who always said, “Each person had powers and had the responsibility to use that power to do good.”

We remember back in the early 1990′s, at the royal commission on Aboriginal Peoples- an aboriginal man identifying himself as a warrior saying indigenous women who lost their native status because they married a non-native man are not part of the native community and should not be allowed back.

That was part of the racist, sexist official policies of the government of Canada, which stripped native women of their rights, not native men for marrying non-native women. A colonial attack at the core of Native culture-women.

The hateful colonial attack featured many other means to strip native peoples of our dignity-including losing native “status” for being off-reserve, not being counted by census etc

So when this “warrior” made this hateful collaborative colonial attack on native women- he made Art Solomon’s daughter Cry-who was sitting next to me. She told him that’s not our way, it’s not what my father teaches about native women and culture. He was dismissive, could not care less. I still feel her tears, and what they mean, today.

Petition: Urge the Province of Ontario to Stop Licensing the Plunder of First Nations Land

We, the undersigned, are writing to urge the Province of Ontario to end its complicity in the theft and plunder of First Nations land. Specifically, we ask that the Province stop providing licenses for resource extraction from lands currently in the Federal land claims negotiation process…

We also strongly encourage the Federal and Provincial Governments to engage in meaningful dialogue to end the exploitation of First Nation lands and resources. We are aggrieved to say that the status quo appears to be a twenty-first century perpetuation of a dismal history of policy that has done great injury to First Nations people and communities.

Wet’suwet’en call for (Alberta Oil Sands) pipeline boycott

Native group calls for pipeline boycott

filed under: Oil SandsEnbridge, First Nations

By Nathan VanderKlippe

Globe and Mail jan 16 2010

A small B.C. first nation is making a personal plea to a series of Alberta energy companiesas well as China and other governments in hopes of derailing an Enbridge Inc. pipeline that would export oil-sands crude to Asia.

The campaign is a preview of a storm brewing between first nations and the backers of the Northern Gateway pipeline project. The 1,170-kilometre project would bring crude from Alberta to the northern B.C. coast, where it would be loaded onto very large crude carriers for transport to Asian refiners.

The project offers oil-sands producers an appealing alternative market to the United States, where climate change legislation has brought some uncertainty. It has, as a result, gained support from a broad swath of industry and government leaders.

But on some of the pristine, salmon-rich lands Gateway would cross – safely, Enbridge says – first nations are voicing growing concerns that the line will damage the environment and leave little in return.

On some of the pristine, salmon-rich lands Gateway would cross – safely, Enbridge says – first nations are voicing growing concerns that the line will damage the environment and leave little in return.

One of those nations, the Wet’suwet’en, took to Calgary yesterday in hopes of persuading energy companies to boycott the project. About 140 km of Gateway would be built on Wet’suwet’en traditional territory, and the group believes the environmental approval process for the pipeline will infringe on their constitutional rights, since it does not include a mandate to look into aboriginal rights and title.

To make their case yesterday, they hand-delivered letters to Shell Canada Ltd., Royal Dutch Shell, Husky Energy, Suncor Energy Inc., Chevron, Imperial Oil Ltd., Ivanhoe Energy, Korea National Oil Corporation and China National Petroleum Corporation. The group has met with the U.S. and Chinese consulates in Calgary, and also plans to outline its concerns to South Korean representatives.

“We want to let these shippers know their support for the Enbridge project will also be supporting infringement on the Wet’suwet’en Nation,” said David deWit, the group’s natural resources manager.

A spokeswoman with the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency said the review process “has proven over time to be an effective means” to consider environmental and social impacts. The panel’s findings will be used by the government “to fulfill its legal duty to consult and, where appropriate, accommodate.”

The Wet’suwet’en opposition comes as support rallies around Gateway which, along with a separate West Coast oil pipeline being pushed by Kinder Morgan Canada, is seen as a potentially critical link to foreign crude buyers.

A group of Alberta oil producers and Asian refiners has already handed Enbridge $100-million to develop the project, and on Thursday, newly-installed Energy Minister Ron Liepert said he intends to more aggressively look “at international markets for our oil and gas products.”

“We have been too reliant on the U.S.,” Mr. Liepert said in an interview.

Gateway will cross the land of 50 first nations. Thirty have signed “protocol agreements” that allow discussions with Enbridge and provide funding for local traditional knowledge studies. Enbridge has not yet, however, signed a single access and benefit agreement with native groups.

Mr. deWit estimates that salmon in northwestern B.C. are worth $100-million a year.

From the CANADA PALESTINE ASSOCIATION

Open letter to the Assembly of First Nations

We are saddened, hurt and shocked by the visit of a delegation of the Assembly of First Nations (AFN) to Israel, as well as the following statement attributed to AFN National Chief Phil Fontaine:

Indigenous people in Canada have much in common with the people of Israel, including a respect of the land and their languages. This mission is an excellent opportunity for us to share our values and our traditional ways of life, in the hope of building greater understanding, awareness and respect for our similarities and differences, both at home and abroad.”http://www.afn.ca/article.asp?id=2276

The victims of genocide at the hands of European settler colonialism cannot and should not give cover for another form of settler colonialism that has committed and continues to commit wholesale ethnic cleansing and genocide against the Palestinian people and nation.  In 1948, over four hundred villages and towns were wiped off the Palestinian and world map and their cemeteries desecrated; two thirds of the Palestinian people were uprooted from their historic homeland and forced to live in reservations called refugee camps for the past fifty-eight years, most outside of their historic land. (See “All That Remains” By Prof. Walid Khalidi
http://palestineremembered.com/Acre/Palestine-Remembered/Story661.html

Perhaps the chiefs, elders and leaders of the Assembly of First Nations don’t know the history of the Zionist movement.  In fact, it was coined on the model of the European settler colonialist movement that preceded it four hundred years earlier and committed the genocide against the indigenous peoples.  The Zionist movement was also built on the South Africa, Zimbabwe, Angola, Guinea Bissau, Mozambique, Algeria and other European settler colonialist models of the same era – late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Here is what the first Zionist Congress held in Basle, Switzerland (in Europe) in 1897 listed as some of the aims of the movement:

Zionism strives to create for the Jewish people a homeland in Palestine secured by public law. The congress contemplates the following means to the attainment of this end:

1-     The promotion on suitable lines of the colonization of Palestine by Jewish agricultural and industrial workers.” (our emphasis)

And Theodor Herzl, the founder of political Zionism, wrote in his book The Jewish State in 1896:
“We should there form a portion of the rampart of Europe against Asia, an outpost of civilization as opposed to barbarism.” (our emphasis)

So doesn’t this logic sound familiar?  We are sure that it is painfully familiar to your ancestors and to your people who face racism on a daily basis.

We are sorry that we do not have the means to take you on similar tours to show you what is really happening in Palestine.  Perhaps you should ask the hundreds of international volunteers, including Canadians, who paid their own way to go there and bear witness to the continuous Israeli brutality against the indigenous people of Palestine (See http://www.palsolidarity.org/main/). We are sure your Israeli and Zionist hosts will never take you to see the remains of the four hundred villages that were systematically destroyed, nor will they show you the Apartheid wall, the refugee camps, the tens of thousands of uprooted trees nor will they tell you that over 95 per cent of the land that Israel sits on is stolen land from the indigenous Palestinian population.  If Chief Fontaine thinks that Israel has respect for the land, he is either unaware or complicit in covering up the massive Israeli injustice against the indigenous people of Palestine.

We will be frank with you. In the name of the vanquished indigenous people, you are being used to justify and cover up not only the Israeli atrocities and war crimes committed against the Palestinian people but also Israeli support for racism and oppression against the peoples of Africa, Asia, central and south America.

This should not pass. The sooner you clarify your position, the sooner you will salvage your name and credibility.  Already messages on the Internet are describing your collaboration with the Zionist organizations under the title: “Friends of neocolonialism meet”.  We hope that you will not be remembered as friends of European settler colonialists who committed genocide against the Palestinian people and were motivated by conquest, greed and superiority, the same evil motivations that enslaved the Native people of the Americas.

It is an offence and a crime against our native brothers and sisters who are still living and to those who perished in the process of colonization, to associate with the crimes of the Israeli settler colonialist state that is committing genocide against the native people of Palestine.

Since the year 2000, over eight hundred Palestinian “Dudley Georges” were murdered every year at the hands of the neo-fascist regime in Israel.

Are these the people who you “have much in common with” and that you want to build cultural comparisons with?  Are these the people you want to share your “values and … traditional ways of life” with?

If so, you are complicit in their war crimes and you should not do it in the name of the First Nations Peoples.

Indigenous peoples must never be a party to genocide against the Palestinian people nor any other oppressed people facing occupation, genocide and theft of their land and natural resources.

Vatican under fire as 4,000 face eviction

Church landlords accused of speculative frenzy
Conduct ‘not in line’ with papal stance on housing

John Hooper in Rome

Several thousand residents in Rome who face eviction from their rented homes by the Roman Catholic church this week have accused church bodies of indulging in a “speculative frenzy”.

In a letter to Archbishop Angelo Bagnasco, the head of the Italian bishops’ conference, a committee formed by tenants said: “We have always paid the rent and taken care of our flats. None of the evictions is for non-payment of rent; they are all because of expired leases.”

The problem is most acute in the centre of the Italian capital, where a quarter of the property is owned by the Vatican and church organisations.

The protest could scarcely have come at a more embarrassing time for the Italian Roman Catholic hierarchy or its leader. Last month, Archbishop Bagnasco made a widely reported speech in which he deplored a shortage of low-cost housing. He said: “I am referring in particular to the tragedies of those such as pensioners or single-income families who are served with eviction orders and cannot find alternative [accommodation].

The former Archbishop of Siena, Gaetano Bonicelli, who advises the bishops’ conference on social policy, stressed the evictions were being carried out, not by the church directly, but by the property agents of organisations linked to it. However, he said, their conduct was “certainly not in line with the teaching of the popes on the right to housing”…

Tenants at risk include former Vatican employees, their survivors and descendants. Others are simply long-standing tenants of bodies linked to the church.

Catholic Church Involved in Forced Evictions in Angola, Says Amnesty International

http://www.religionnewsblog.com/17179/catholic-church-involved-in-forced-evictions-in-angola-says-amnesty-international

Jan. 14, 2007

New York — Amnesty International has released a report revealing the scale and extent of forced evictions in Angola and expressing particular concern at forced evictions carried out by Angolan authorities apparently at the request of the Catholic Church.

The Angolan government claims it is addressing the eviction problem, yet hundreds of families in Luanda are still homeless,” said Larry Cox, executive director of Amnesty International USA (AIUSA). “When the government relocates civilians to places further away from schools, jobs and basic amenities, it can drive people deeper into poverty.”

According to the 38-page report, Angola: Lives in ruins: forced evictions continue, thousands of families have been forcibly evicted since 2001 — nearly always without notification to the families affected. Tens of thousands have been left without shelter since the start of the evictions; hundreds of the families’ lives are in ruins today.

Amnesty International found that nearly all of the forced evictions were accompanied by excessive use of force, which sometimes involved police beatings of children and women — including one pregnant woman — and indiscriminate shooting at residents attempting to protect their homes.

While Pope decries “evil sorcerers” in Angola, Church accused of forcibly evicting people in Angola

http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.php?az=view_all&address=389×5302235

Mar-21-2009

Pope Benedict XVI appealed to the Catholics of Angola on Saturday to reach out to and convert believers in witchcraft who feel threatened by “spirits” and “evil powers” of sorcery.

And Amnesty International on Saturday called on the pope to use his influence to halt the threat of forced evictions for residents of Luanda to make rise for high-rise apartments and office buildings. Many have been given cheap houses in faraway satellite towns that have no running water or electricity.

Amnesty said that between 2003 and 2006, thousands of people were forcibly evicted from land belonging to the Catholic Church in three Luanda districts.

Asked at the press briefing about Amnesty’s allegations, Lombardi referred the question to an Angolan bishop, Monsignor Jose Manuel Imbamba. The prelate denied that anyone had been evicted or houses destroyed. “We help the poor, we don’t send them away,” Imbamba said.

Polish police evict 65 former nuns from convent

They illegally occupied facility for two years after defying Vatican order

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21230255/

Oct . 11, 2007

KAZIMIERZ DOLNY, Poland – Police evicted 65 rebellious ex-nuns Wednesday from a convent they illegally occupied for two years after defying a Vatican order to replace their mother superior, a charismatic leader who had religious visions.

The defeated nuns walked out in their black habits — some carrying guitars, drums and tambourines — after a locksmith opened the gate to the walled compound and police in riot gear rushed in and arrested the mother superior. A former Franciscan friar who had locked himself away with the nuns also was taken into custody.

Several nuns, many of whom appeared to be in their 20s, screamed at police, calling them “servants of Satan,” as they were escorted out and into waiting buses.

Police evict parishioners from shuttered churches: New Orleans

http://www.nola.com/news/index.ssf/2009/01/police_evict_parishioners_from.html

By Susan Finch

January 06, 2009

New Orleans police evicted parishioners from two Uptown Catholic churches Tuesday and delivered the buildings back into the hands of the Archdiocese of New Orleans, apparently ending a 72-day standoff that began when parishioners moved into the churches and occupied them around the clock to save them from closure.

Accompanied by lawyers from the city attorney’s office, police arrived almost simultaneously at Our Lady of Good Counsel on Louisiana Avenue and at St. Henry Church, about a mile away on Gen. Pershing Street, around 10:30 a.m.

People at St. Henry said police knocked at the locked door, were allowed entry and told three protesting parishioners to leave or face a civil summons or arrest.

Among the three was Madeline Morris, the widow of former Police Superintendent Henry Morris, said Alden Hagardorn, a St. Henry leader.

However, police and church officials had to force their way into Good Counsel, either battering down or sawing an opening in a side door, parishioners said.

A St. Henry parishioner, Cynthia Robidoux, rushed to her church in tears and pleaded for entry to swap places with those inside, who she said had not anticipated arrest.

She, however, welcomed it.

“I want everyone to see what they’re doing. I want them to be ashamed, ” she said through tears, referring to Archbishop Alfred Hughes and other church officials.

Clinton leads condemnation of Jerusalem evictions

http://www.eubusiness.com/news-eu/1249322522.19/

03 August 2009, 23:22 CET

WASHINGTON) – The United States and the European Union hit out Monday at Israel for evicting Palestinian families from east Jerusalem, warning that such moves endangered the Middle East peace process.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton led the international condemnation, labeling the evictions “deeply regrettable” and “provocative” and accusing Israel of failing to live up to its international obligations under existing peace initiatives.

“I have said before that the eviction of families and demolition of homes in east Jerusalem is not in keeping with Israeli obligations,” Clinton told reporters at a Washington press conference alongside Jordanian counterpart Nasser Judeh.

“And I urge the government of Israel and municipal officials to refrain from such provocative actions.”

Club-wielding Israeli riot police evicted two Palestinian families from their homes in occupied east Jerusalem on Sunday, after which clashes erupted in the upmarket Arab district of Sheikh Jarrah.

The action followed a decision by Israel’s Supreme Court to order the eviction of the 53 Palestinians, including 19 minors.

Time to Evict Corrupt Colonial Band Councils (Tribal Governments etc), Fossil Fuel ( Coal, Gas, Oil), Uranium, Gold, Loggers Corps etc From Traditional Indigenous Lands

The vast majority of the the world’s fossil fuels(King Coal, Natural Gas, Oil) Uranium, Trees etc are located on traditional Indigenous Peoples Lands of our Beloved Earth.

This is the last stand of the Peoples of the Earth-we must stand together in partnership to resist the Wendigos and Goliaths. They are making their final assault on traditional

Indigenous Lands worldwide on every continent from the farthest North to the South, West and East with the aide and help of the corrupt local colonial indigenous powers-business and government and NGO axis.

Now is the time to stop them-once and for all- and to show them the way of life, peace and possibility. Suffering and Extinction is not an option.

China Bosses Davos as Nobody Discusses What Happened to Google

By Rob Delaney and Ari Levy

http://www.bloomberg.com/apps/news?pid=20601087&sid=atF6ms3zqviw

Jan. 30 (Bloomberg) — Google Inc.’s opposition to censorship in China was the one topic left off the table in Davos — at China’s request.

China didn’t want to discuss Google,” Josef Ackermann, chief executive officer of Deutsche Bank AG and a co-chairman of this year’s World Economic Forum, said in an interview. China’s Vice Premier Li Keqiang made that clear, he said…

At Davos, financier George Soros, economist Joseph Stiglitz and French President Nicolas Sarkozy debated technology topics including social networking and 3-D features used in the motion picture “Avatar.” The discussion didn’t address the conflict between China and Google, even during panels on “The Rise of Asia” and “Redesigning the Global Dimensions of China’s Growth.” ..

In remarks circulated on the front page of China’s newspapers, Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates said in an interview this week on ABC News’s “Good Morning America” that “Chinese efforts to censor the Internet have been very limited.”

Gates declined to comment on Google in an interview in Davos.

(Can someone please get Bill Gates some truth serum-a free dose perhaps? Note: PSEA’s documents are generally available at google.cn

our documents are banned at baidu.com China’s State sanctioned search engine.)

Google wasn’t mentioned in either of two China-oriented Davos panel discussions: One called “U.S.-China: Reshaping the Global Agenda” and another on “Redesigning the Global Dimensions of China’s Growth,” which featured Alcoa Inc. CEO Klaus Kleinfeld and Blackstone Group CEO Stephen Schwarzman. The participants debated topics including what China Central Television host Rui Chenggang called a “self-righteous” Western media’s misapprehension of China. Rui and Schwarzman both declined to comment about Google after the panel..

People have their commercial interests,” Deutsche Bank’s Ackermann said.

Apple: Still kowtowing to Chinese censorship

January 15, 2010

http://blogs.computerworld.com/15412/apple_still_kowtowing_to_chinese_censorship

Preston Gralla

Apple has worked for years to build a company image as freedom-loving and iconoclastic. But the truth is far darker: Apple is cooperating with the Chinese government to ban iPhone applications in China related to the Dalai Lama and Uighur activist Rebiya Kandeer, even though it once highlighted the Dalai Lama in its “Think Different” campaign. One word describes Apple’s behavior: hypocritical. ..

That theme continued through the years, notably with a “Think Different” campaign in 1997. Here’s the text from the first ads, which link using Apple products to world-changing free-thinkers such as Albert Einstein, Martin Luther King, Jr., John Lennon, and, ironically, the Dalai Lama.

Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do. “ Apple

ANALYSIS China’s strident tone raises concerns among Western governments, analysts

By John Pomfret

Washington Post
Sunday, January 31, 2010

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/01/30/AR2010013002443.html

From the Copenhagen climate change conference to Internet freedom to China’s border with India, China observers have noticed a tough tone emanating from its government, its representatives and influential analysts from its state-funded think tanks…

Analysts say a combination of hubris and insecurity appears to be driving China’s mood. On one hand, Beijing thinks that the relative ease with which it skated over the global financial crisis underscores the superiority of its system and that China is not only rising but has arrived on the global stage — much faster than anyone could have predicted. On the other, recent uprisings in the western regions of Tibet and Xinjiang have fed Chinese leaders’ insecurity about their one-party state. As such, any perceived threat to their power is met with a backlash. ..

The unease over China’s new tone is shared by Europeans as well. “How Should Europe Respond to China’s Strident Rise?” is the title of a new paper from the Center for European Reform. Just two years earlier, its author, institute director Charles Grant, had predicted that China and the European Union would shape the new world order.

“There is a real rethink going on about China in Europe,” Grant said in an interview from Davos. “I don’t think governments know what to do, but they know that their policies aren’t working.”

U.S. officials first began noticing the new Chinese attitude last year. Anecdotes range from the political to the personal…

David Finkelstein, a former U.S. Army officer at the Defense Intelligence Agency who now runs the China program at the Center for Naval Analyses, said the new tone underscores a shift in China. “On the external front,” he said, “we will likely see a China that is more willing than in the past to proactively shape the external environment and international order rather than passively react to it.”

An example would be events that unfolded in December when 22 Chinese Muslims showed up in Cambodia and requested political asylum. China wanted to hold seven of them on suspicion of participating in anti-Chinese riots in the Xinjiang region in July.

Under intense pressure from Beijing, Cambodia sent the group home, despite protests from the United States. Two days after the group was repatriated, China signed 14 deals with Cambodia worth about $1 billion.

(China)Sanctions target US firms

By Wu Jiao (China Daily)
Updated: 2010-02-01 07:50

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/bizchina/2010-02/01/content_9405516.htm

For the first time Beijing vowed to censure private companies involved in the arms sales to Taiwan by the United States, a measure seen as concrete by experts and demanded by Chinese netizens for a long time.

China said it would impose unspecified sanctions on the companies involved and reduce international cooperation with the US unless it canceled the new arms package. The foreign ministry didn’t list the companies involved in its draft statement over the weekend.

But Sikorsky, Lockheed-Martin, Raytheon and Boeing, are four companies involved in the latest $6.4 billion sale. All four have so far declined to comment to the press.

Boeing has big commercial interests in China, the world’s most populous market, including commercial aircraft sales. United Technologies, which owns Sikorsky, also has significant business in the country, where it sells Carrier brand heating and air-conditioning, Otis elevators and escalators and other products.

Experts, while hailing the sanction as the most concrete countermeasure so far, said the government should weigh the sanctions in a cautious way as those companies have close trade cooperation with China.

Yuan Peng, head of US studies at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, said that imposing sanctions for the first time signals China is more serious than ever in its reaction to the arms sale.

Ye Hailin, an expert at the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences said the sanctions mean that those companies who try to profit from the deal need to pay the price.

“You cannot just make money from both Taiwan and the mainland,” said Ye.

Many Chinese also applaud the sanctions.

“We should make the US feel more pain over the arms sale. They deserve this concrete punishment,” said Gao Jie, a resident in Beijing.

According to Li Qinggong, deputy secretary-general of the China Council for National Security Policy Studies, arms makers, including Lockheed Martin Corp and Raytheon Co, have actually been long kept out of the Chinese market despite the fact that China has a huge demand for radars and related equipment because of its airport expansion.

On the website of Lockheed Martin, the global section listed the ROK, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and India under its category of “Asia Pacific market”, but not the Chinese mainland. The company’s last business with the mainland can be traced to 2002, when it provided seven air traffic control automation systems.

Li said it was relatively easy for China to ban pure arms sellers, but it would be very complicated to sever the relations with Boeing and the United Technologies.

“It is still unclear whether the sanctions mean to be effective against the whole group or just the unit involved,” said Li. “Yet our government should weigh the sanctions in a cautious way to avoid hurting overall trade relations.”

Like previous US governments the Obama administration has been closely linked with arms manufacturers.

Robert J. Stevens, chairman, president and CEO of Lockheed Martin made a large donation to the Democrats since the Obama administration came to power. William J. Lynn, the current Deputy Secretary of Defense, used to be chairman and chief executive officer of Raytheon Company.

Other US politicians are also closely linked with the arms sellers. FedSpending.org, a website of the watchdog group OMB Watch, reported in 2008 that 151 members of Congress invested close to a quarter billion dollars in companies that received defense contracts of at least $5 million in 2006. These companies got more than $275.6 billion from the government in 2006, or $755 million per day, said the report.

Iran Warns Against Protests During Islamic Republic Anniversary

January 31, 2010 By Ladane Nasseri

http://www.businessweek.com/news/2010-01-31/iran-warns-against-protests-during-islamic-republic-anniversary.html

Jan. 31 (Bloomberg) — Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, which helped quell demonstrations against the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, warned that protesters during the Islamic Republic’s anniversary will be considered foreign agents.

If there is any voice or color other than those of the Islamic Revolution it will be pushed aside and if a minority makes this attempt, it will be firmly confronted,” Brigadier General Hossein Hamedani, head of the guards in Tehran, said on SepahNews, the organization’s Web site. Anyone who protests “is not Iranian and will be considered an agent of foreigners.”

The guards led a crackdown against protests following Ahmadinejad’s disputed June re-election, which led to the deaths of 44 people, according to official figures. The government has banned protests and the opposition recently has taken to the streets during national or religious events. The anniversary of the Islamic Republic is Feb. 11.

Iran yesterday started the trial of 14 male and 2 female protesters accused of involvement in last month’s demonstrations, which coincided with the Shiite Muslim holy day of Ashura.

Enmity Toward God’

Five of the defendants are facing charges of “enmity toward God” and the others are being tried for taking part in “illegal protests, threatening national security, and spreading propaganda against the establishment,” state-run Press TV news channel said…

Those convicted of being enemies of God face the death penalty.

Ahmadinejad: Whoever controls the Mideast controls the world

ranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said in a Tehran conference Saturday that whoever controls the Middle East controls the world, the semi-official Fars News Agency reported.

In a speech during a conference marking 30 years to the Islamic Revolution, Ahamdinejad reportedly implied that Iran is the top power in the Middle East. “Now the question is who has the last say in the Middle East? Well, of course, the answer is clear to every one,” Ahamdinejad said.

Ahmadinejad’s fortune worth over €100M

Kuwaiti newspaper publishes list of 66 senior Iranian officials holding total of $16 billion abroad

http://www.ynetnews.com/articles/0,7340,L-3836041,00.html

Doron Peskin


01.21.10

A Kuwaiti newspaper published over the weekend a list of 66 senior Iranian government officials holding a fortune totaling some $16 billion abroad, according to American estimates.

The fortune is comprised of US dollars (about $9 billion), euros (about €4.3 billion) and pound sterling (about £1.15 billion).

The Iranian officials appear to be aware of the monitoring of their personal wealth, and have decided to scatter the risk and deposit their funds in Arab banks, in Asia and in Europe. Some of the sums are frozen as part of the international sanctions.

According to Arab sources, the details on the wealthy people are mostly based on news spread by the exiled opposition, and thus some of the data may be exaggerated.

Mahdi Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president’s eldest son, is said to have €18 million in Belgium, €45 million in Switzerland and €44 million in an Islamic bank in a United Arab Emirates country.

Ghulam Hussain Elham, the former Iranian government speaker, has $25 million in Dubai, $13 million in Turkey, $17 million in Switzerland and $700,000 in Beirut.

Nazia Khamenei, a relative of Iranian supreme leader Ali Khamenei, is also on the list. She has €7 million in Turkey, €65 million in Germany and £122 million in bank accounts in Britain.

Mojtaba Khamenei, the supreme leader’s son, who is considered one of the people in charge of corruption in the Iranian economic system, is said to hold some £1 billion in England, although these funds have recently been frozen as part of the sanctions. However, Khamenei still has €2.2 billion invested in Germany, $766 million in Qatar and unknown sums in Swiss banks.

Moscow police detained some 100 people, including several prominent opposition leaders, after an unsanctioned rally in downtown of the Russian capital, a police official said.

Moscow police spokesman Viktor Biryukov said about 300 people, including leader of the opposition movement The Other Russia, Eduard Limonov, former Russian deputy prime minister Boris Nemtsov and head of the Memorial human rights group Oleg Orlov, gathered on Triumphalnaya Square on Sunday in anti-Kremlin protest.

“After repeated requests to stop the rally, police detained about 100 people, including Boris Nemtsov, Eduard Limonov and Oleg Orlov,” he said.

The protesters said they gathered to show that the authorities are violating the Russian Constitution, which grants the right to assemble peacefully.

PSEA (Paradigm Shift Environment Alliance) is aligned with those who are against Carbon Trading (Offset) Markets- such as NASA Climatologist James Hansen.

PSEA holds that Copenhagen, Davos, the G8 and G20 are completely

irrelevant, anachronistic and are Dinosaurs from another era. They are literally dinosaurs stuck in Tar Sands-fossilized and aggrandized in their own minds. They are in fact an impediment and danger to the Security and well-being of our Beloved Earth and her inhabitants.

It has always been We the Peoples, who must stop Global Warming, We the Peoples that must protect the well-being of each other, We the Peoples that remove the impediments to our common security and our well-being, We the Peoples that bring Love, Compassion and Justice to the Center for our Economies, Governance, Cultures and Each Other.

James Hansen compares “global warming” to slavery, Nazism

And furthermore, he’s tired of even his AGW allies “compromising” on the issue, and believes that Copenhagen will solve nothing:

In an interview with the Guardian, James Hansen, the world’s pre-eminent climate scientist, said any agreement likely to emerge from the negotiations would be so deeply flawed that it would be better to start again from scratch.

I would rather it not happen if people accept that as being the right track because it’s a disaster track,” said Hansen, who heads the Nasa Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York.

[…]

Hansen is also fiercely critical of Barack Obama – and even Al Gore, who won a Nobel peace prize for his efforts to get the world to act on climate change – saying politicians have failed to meet what he regards as the moral challenge of our age.

In Hansen’s view, dealing with climate change allows no room for the compromises that rule the world of elected politics. “This is analagous to the issue of slavery faced by Abraham Lincoln or the issue of Nazism faced by Winston Churchill,” he said. “On those kind of issues you cannot compromise. You can’t say let’s reduce slavery, let’s find a compromise and reduce it 50% or reduce it 40%.”

He added: “We don’t have a leader who is able to grasp it and say what is really needed. Instead we are trying to continue business as usual.”

U.S.: Climate Justice Activists confront Carbon Trade Summit in NYC

1/13/2009 – New York, NY In the wake of a controversial outcome at the Copenhagen climate talks, a diverse crowd of scientists, Faith congregation, activists, students, and concerned citizens converged in confrontation and protest at the 2nd Annual IGlobalForum Carbon Trading Summit today. The summit is the largest annual meeting place of corporations, banks, and lobby groups to further the agenda of a carbon trading scheme to address climate change. Activists rallied to oppose market-based trading of greenhouse gas emissions credits and call for real solutions to the climate crisis. Dr. Maggie Zhou of Secure Green Future Massachusetts was among the demonstrators who engaged in in nonviolent direct action and risked arrest in attempt to blockade a portion of the venue’s revolving doors to display a banner decrying carbon trading as a false solution.

The same Wall Street bankers who gave us the global climate crisis are trying to own the sky,” stated Brian Tokar, director of the Institute for Social Ecology and an organizer of this week’s protest events. “Carbon trading is unjust, it will not work, and it is a false solution. It is a dangerous distraction from the urgent measures needed to prevent an ever-worsening destabilization of the climate.”

Speakers at the rally included Reverend Billy of the Church of Life After Shopping, who delivered a critique with the fire and brimstone of a televangelist; Bhaia Heller, Professor of Womens Studies at Mount Holyoke University and Father Paul Mayer, co-founder of the Climate Crisis Coalition and religious community leader.

Participants inside the Carbon Trading Summit will include executives from JP Morgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, Duke Energy and more.

I don’t trust these people to make decisions about the future of humanity,” said one young participant, who wished not to give her name because she will be risking arrest today. “If we follow through with market-based solutions like carbon trading, everyone will regret it. We need to stop believing the corporations’ false solutions and put all our collective energy into getting this conversation onto a track that’s useful.”

Dr. James Hansen, renowned climate scientist, was present outside the Carbon Trading Summit yesterday to voice his opposition to carbon trading schemes.

Cap-and-trade is not a smart approach,” wrote Hansen his book Storms of My Grandchildren. Hansen has stated that current US climate legislation is “worse than nothing” because it relies on risky and ineffective cap-and-trade. He also declared that the failure to reach an agreement in Copenhagen was a better outcome than adopting the carbon-trade-based approach that was being negotiated.

Carbon trade, which includes cap and trade and offsets are a dangerous distraction, economically risky, and prone to gaming and speculation,” stated Dr. Maggie Zhou, from Secure Green Future and Climate SOS stated. “Offsets allow polluters to simply pay someone else somewhere else to reduce their emissions on your behalf, which in the end does nothing to actually reduce emissions. The climate crisis simply can’t wait!

Carbon trade is an insidious threat to human rights,” stated Dr. Rachel Smolker from Biofuelwatch and Climate SOS. “It turns rights to pollute the atmosphere, as well as forests, soils and agriculture practices that store carbon into commodities to be bought and sold as excuses for polluters. This is the greatest corporate grab on the “global commons” ever! It is disastrous for most of humanity.
