Es wird Zeit dem selbstherrlichen Geschwafel unserer (u.a. über Atomenergie unwissenden) PolitikerInnen ein Ende zu setzen. Wozu gibt es eigentlich diese unsinnigen 'Strahlengrenzwerte', während die Atomindustrie ihre Abfallprodukte im Zuge von 'abgesegneten Friedensmissionen' in Form von Plutoniumgeschossen entsorgt. Warum starb Dr. Scheer unmittelbar nach seiner Ankündigung, die Atomindustrie wegen Vertragsbruch (Laufzeitenverlängerung) verklagen zu wollen ?
The British Tribes before the conquest of the Roman Slaveholders had a Functioning Matriarchy that fronted thousands of years of liberation and peace. Just recently March 26, 2011 the TUC--Trade Union Centre of Britain had a March and Rally in Trafalgar Square, that numbered just over 500,000 organized workers, and unorganized workers. The March was centered on the ending of the Austerity programe on the Right-Wing Conservatives who are dead set on eliminating hundreds of thousands of public service and various other union jobs throughout the United Kingdom. This really is a shortfall of intelligence which proves that since the seventieth depression that our parents lived through and tell us of, has found those in power as the ones that have learned nothing from the rules of a planned society. Handing money to the tiny majority at the top while denighing it to the majority workers-peasant-student aliance is a cause of depressions along with the lie that aggressive wars is good for the economy. Aggressive wars are parasitic and depressive to the economy as they they destroy only and take from that do produce only the means of living. That is a huge hidden tax which misleads the world down a path to destruction, depression and unnecessary and now illegal aggressive killing of the younger generations. It is as to Cutting the workers out, like cutting your toes off to fit your shoes. It has not value at all, and is complete dis-information as to the path to liberation. Their lies are couched in propaganda designed to mislead the entire planet down the garden path of destruction of the air, land, water, plants, animals and people. Do you know that the second world wars was fought to end aggressive war forever as the foreign policy of each and every country, which shows in the United Nations Charter which says it is formed to make aggressive war just a long distant memory for the comming generations. Too bad the majority General Assembly did not have a veto over the tiny minority of Imperialist war makers who control the Security Council. However, if the five hundred thousand demonstrators in London wish to double their numbers and nay take the whole state to a workers position they need to restore the matriarchy and elect woman equally thusly accessing the women to half the wealth and half the law making each year. In fact of material truth that is what needs to happen globally to restore the material harmony and joy that is the natural condition of the man, and women condition. That position is win, win for all of our specie and for the most of all the species on the planet. Why wait for spring, do it now. Workers of the world, unite!! Don't forget that the worlds empires are waging aggressive wars that disallow the matriarchy as woman is most instinctually gene wise in creating life on the planet. That was destroyed with the advent of Slaveholder pens, now called modern prisons and the alienated condition of male domination is now ruling to the detriment and gender auserity of us all as a specie globally. Viva socialist liberation. Elect woman equally doubling democracy around the world. End pollution wars, not endless wars for more pollution.
Flashback to the April 1, 2001 first-ever legal same-gender wedding in the world, when Amsterdam Mayor Job Cohen married four couples at the stroke of midnight to celebrate the Netherlands' new marriage equality. Plus UN council declares support for LGBT rights, Obama and Rouseff ask the OAS to set up a special office to protect LGBT people, Uganda's "kill the gays" bill has a twin brother, Canada plans to aid refugees from homophobia, and more news.
The Libyan National Council, the Benghazi-based group that speaks for the rebel forces fighting the Gaddafi regime, has appointed a long-time CIA collaborator to head its military operations. The selection of Khalifa Hifter, a former colonel in the Libyan army, was reported by McClatchy Newspapers Thursday and the new military chief was interviewed by a correspondent for ABC News on Sunday night. Hifter’s arrival in Benghazi was first reported by Al Jazeera on March 14, followed by a flattering portrait in the virulently pro-war British tabloid the Daily Mail on March 19. The Daily Mail described Hifter as one of the “two military stars of the revolution” who “had recently returned from exile in America to lend the rebel ground forces some tactical coherence.” The newspaper did not refer to his CIA connections.
Libya and The Holy Triumvirate ......... The words they find it very difficult to say — "civil war". Libya is engaged in a civil war. The United States and the European Union and NATO — The Holy Triumvirate — are intervening, bloodily, in a civil war. To overthrow Moammar Gaddafi. First The Holy Triumvirate spoke only of imposing a no-fly zone. After getting support from international bodies on that understanding they immediately began to wage war against Libyan military forces, and whoever was nearby, on a daily basis. In the world of commerce this is called "bait and switch". Gaddafi's crime? He was never respectful enough of The Holy Triumvirate, which recognizes no higher power, and maneuvers the United Nations for its own purposes, depending on China and Russia to be as spineless and hypocritical as Barack Obama. The man the Triumvirate allows to replace Gaddafi will be more respectful. So who are the good guys? The Libyan rebels, we're told. The ones who go around murdering and raping African blacks on the supposition that they're all mercenaries for Gaddafi. ........
NEW DELHI (IDN) - The unceasing waves of protests and uprisings against Arab regimes have given rise to a tantalising question: Why have the winds of change sweeping the Arab world not had any effect on the Chinese people and aroused them against their own government?

El miércoles 9 de marzo a las 11 de la noche el preso Adrian Magdaleno fue trasladado ilegalmente del Reclusorio Norte (donde se encontraba cumpliendo su condena de 7 años, 11 meses y 5 días) al Reclusorio de Santa Marta Acatitla, situado al este del Distrito Federal.
COLOMBO (IDN) - A challenge that preoccupies local and foreign opinion is the Challenge of Human Rights: Some countries focus their bilateral dialogue with Sri Lanka only on human rights. Our interlocutors invariably refer to human rights concerns in the country and even suggest progress on human rights as a condition for dialogue and business in other areas e.g. commerce, security and even people to people contact.
COLOMBO (IDN) - When domestic processes fail to find solutions to internal problems, external forces find space to advocate or even impose solutions for their own political or strategic convenience. Sri Lanka is no exception. Leadership failures since independence by all governments and mainstream political parties contributed to externalizing the conflict from which Sri Lanka emerged in May 2009.
SAN BERNARDINO, USA (IDN) - Asked by a local journalist whether the winds of change blowing in North Africa could make a detour to Ethiopia, Prime Minister Meles Zenawi said that was impossible because he and his party have a five-year "contract" with the Ethiopian people.
PARIS (IDN) - To avoid misunderstandings: Muammar al Gaddafi is a brutal, cynical, corrupt dictator, who obviously considers Libya to be his personal property. His sons were also forged in the same furnace. Period.
MUMBAI (IDN) - Uncertainty looms large over India's ambitious civilian nuclear programme as a consequence of the triple disasters that have struck Japan. For one, the civilian nuclear agreement, which New Delhi and Tokyo were negotiating, is certain to be indefinitely delayed.
TOKYO (IDN) - While it is too early to assess the exact impact of the disastrous earthquake, it is a no-brainer that the loss to Japan is likely to be quite significant and the impact on the global economy comparatively less severe.
STRASBOURG (IDN) - The request made by Sweden to the United Kingdom for the surrender of the founder of Wikileaks, Julian Assange, put the European Arrest Warrant (EAW) in the headlines. The EAW was created in 2002 as a response to the risk of further terrorist actions after the September 2001 attacks in the United States.
WASHINGTON D.C. (IDN) - Egypt's President Anwar el Sadat once said that President Muammar el Gaddafi was a "strange person" and later called him a "mad man". Asked for his reaction to Sadat's scathing assertion, Gaddafi tersely replied: "Sadat is not a doctor."
PARIS (IDN) - Spreading demand for change in the Middle East and North Africa has Western governments scrambling to calculate appropriate diplomatic responses. As happened when Central and Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union yielded to democratic forces, there will soon be demand from new and/or reforming governments for cooperation in political and economic institution building. Donor nations must be ready to respond.
GENEVA (IDN) - As Japan battles to stave off a nuclear catastrophe, the United Nations has launched a concerted bid to help the East Asian country to cope with the multi-front disaster that Prime Minister Naoto Kan has called Japan's worst since World War II sixty-five years ago.
MADRID (IDN) - It's amazing, just amazing, this international system! It presumably has a world Parliament made of delegates from all countries on Earth and called the General Assembly of the United Nations. Such a Parliament is led by a mini executive body of only five countries, called the Security and Peace Council.
NEW DELHI (IDN) - A small tribe in India is pitted against a British giant like the proverbial David against Goliath. Some 8,000 members of the Dongria Kondh tribe are resisting a bid by $8 billion worth Vedanta Resources to start digging an open-pit mine to obtain bauxite, the ore from which most aluminium is extracted.
BRUSSELS (IDN) - As Burma undergoes a quiet generational and political transition in the aftermath of November 2010 elections, a new report by the prestigious International Crisis Group (ICG) has called for reviewing policies of sanctions and isolation.
BERLIN (IDN) - Since several years, a handful of international institutions, such as the OECD Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA), some governments and state-owned enterprises specialized in the construction of nuclear power plants have been publicising the view that atomic power is experiencing a renaissance.
BERLIN (IDN) - Over 45 countries, ranging from sophisticated economies to developing nations, were actively considering embarking upon nuclear power programmes. The front runners were Iran, United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Italy, Vietnam and Jordan, a new report said.
SEOUL (IDN) - As the world commemorates 25 years of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in the now defunct Soviet Union, the massive earthquake of the magnitude of 8.9 that hit Japan on March 11, 2011 is posing a serious challenge to the country's hi-tec atomic power plants.
BEIJING (IDN) - China has released a draft of the 12th Five-Year Plan (2011-2015) at the annual sessions of the National People's Congress (NPC) and the Chinese People's Consultative Conference National Committee (CPPCC) from March 3-14.
WASHINGTON DC (IDN) – On March 3 and 4, a group of teenagers and pre-teens in Springfield, a nearby suburb, underwent what was called a "30-hour famine". They fasted for 30 consecutive hours, breaking only occasionally for sips of water as nourishment.
HARARE (IDN) - Zimbabwe witnessed a fierce psychological battle at the beginning of March 2011. Inspired by their new role models in the Arab world, political activists and civic society organisations tried to mobilise people for mass protests to demand a change in government. But not a single demonstrator turned up on March 1 for the much-billed 1 million-man march against President Robert Mugabe.
TOKYO (IDN) - Now an eminent CEO in Tokyo's Mitaka City, Masashi Takeuchi vividly recalls his days in Brazil's sprawling Sao Paulo, where he worked as a reporter for a newspaper that was rather popular with the Japanese community.
CAIRO (IDN) - The Cairo Institute for Human Rights Studies (CIHRS), an eminent non-governmental organization, has expressed disappointment at the proposed amendments to Egypt’s Constitution and asked the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces to review these so that the objectives of the "January 25 revolution" are not consigned to oblivion.
GENEVA (IDN) – Amidst rising concern about a seriously deteriorating human rights and humanitarian situation in Cote d'Ivoire that a UN expert body perceives as a threat to international peace and security and an international think-tank says is dragging the strife-torn country to the verge of a civil war, a former Ghana president has faulted the international community's behaviour.
BERLIN/NAHA (IDN) - Living in Germany, one tends to view the world from a European perspective, and focus only on the lessons Europe has learned from the Second World War in the last sixty-five years. Visits to East Asia, however, not only help to adjust one's lenses but also provide new insights. Japan is a distinguished example of a country that has been undergoing a bottom-up process of change.
BERLIN/VIENNA (IDN) - The Vienna Center for Disarmament and Non-Proliferation is a new feather in the cap for Austria, which served as a bridge between East and West under the leadership of Chancellor Bruno Kreisky in the 1970s, and was the venue of some early rounds of the Strategic Arms Reduction Talks (START) between the United States and the now defunct Soviet Union.
PARIS (IDN) - The 28-nation International Energy Agency (IEA), linked with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development -- also known as the ‘rich man’s club’ -- is calling for urgent action to secure adequate funds so that universal energy access becomes a reality.
NEW DELHI (IDN) - The success of popular movements in the Middle East has raised the apprehensions of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), which has been reminded of its own weakness and soft underbelly.
TOKYO (IDN) - The top climate change official of the United Nations, Christiana Figueres, has implored governments to swiftly transform the Cancun agreements into substantial action on the ground, and in particular urged Japan to provide clarity on the future of the Kyoto Protocol.
BERLIN/TOKYO (IDN) - As ‘people power’ topples one Arab regime after another, confronting the international community with an unprecedented volatile situation, an eminent Buddhist leader is urging the world's major powers not to lose sight of the compelling need to bring about a nuclear-weapons-free Middle East as one of the crucial steps towards nuclear abolition.
ADDIS ABABA (IDN) - Strange as this may sound, there is a mainstream in the unsanctioned confederacy of dictators. Whether of the present times or from the distant past, the mainstream dictator is usually decidedly understated, more often than not a loner, eccentric in private habits, and almost as a trademark, lives in a complex world of paranoia.
NEW DELHI (IDN) - As repressive regimes of long standing crumble across the Arab world, raising the spectre of anarchy, there is rising concern among leaderships in South Asia that the 'jasmine revolution' may waft across parts of this long troubled region as well.
ADDIS ABABA (IDN) - If there is solace for the injured pride of the northern Sudanese, who have to grapple with the unambiguous rejection of the southern Sudanese, it lies, ironically, in the exceptionally high percentage, 98.8%, who voted for independence. In neighbouring Eritrea, which voted for independence from Ethiopia in 1993, 99.8%, a world record, had allegedly opted for independence.
WASHINGTON D.C. (IDN) - Finance Ministers and Central Bankers of the Group of 20 (G20) -- the world's top economic performers -- who met on February 18-19 in Paris, took a low-keyed approach to a potential world food crisis that was the subject of much analysis and agitated comment on the eve of the meeting.
BERLIN (IDN) - Though hardly known beyond a circle of experts, the right to development is a human right enshrined in a United Nations declaration. As the world body starts commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Declaration, UN High Commissioner Navi Pillay has expressed the hope that it would draw wider public attention, particularly in the wake of popular uprisings in North Africa and the Gulf region.
SINGAPORE (IDN) - Two issues that have been attracting headlines recently, one in Indonesia and another in the Philippines, perhaps explain why Asian youth are not all that excited about the youth uprisings and their dramatic success in the Middle East.
LONDON (IDN) - When, in1968, the British government announced that Britain's formal protectorate in the Persian Gulf would end in 1971, American planners were anxious and distraught. After Suez, the U.S. had taken the lead in defending Anglo-American interests in the Middle East, but the structure of power in the "East of Suez" was still conserved by the old colonial power.
