Commercial exploitation of wild species for bushmeat must be banned, but at the same time the rights of Indigenous Peoples and their traditional and sustainable hunting for sustainance must not be touched.

COVID-19 and Bushmeat

By CIFOR - 05. April 2020

As the COVID-19 pandemic spreads around the world, China has outlawed the hunting and consumption of all terrestrial wild animals.

The ban is based on the theory that the virus spread from an animal species – most likely a pangolin or bat – to people in a market in Wuhan.

If a wildlife hunting ban were adopted worldwide, millions of people, often Indigenous or rural, who depend on wild meat for their dietary protein, fat and micronutrients, would face the risk of malnutrition.

10 Years of Collateral Murder

Release Julian Assange before it's too late.

By DJV - 03. March 2020

The German Journalists' Association recalls the release of the shocking video "Collateral Murder", with which the Wikileaks disclosure platform awakened the world public on 5 April 2010.

The video shows the killing of 12 civilians by the U.S. army in a suburb of Baghdad, including two Reuters correspondents.

"Collateral Murder is an outstanding film document in contemporary history that has exposed the lies of U.S. officials about the Iraq war," says DJV Federal Chairman Frank Überall. "It was also shocking to see the two Reuters colleagues die because soldiers couldn't distinguish a camera from a rifle," he said.

Sorry to share this one but the New World Order is not a conspiracy theory anymore, it has become a conspiracy fact and we are now living under the firm rule of it. Whether you like or agree with it or not. But as bad as it may look at this moment, the current conditions will be like paradise if you see what the plans for the coming future are.

It is now or never for humanity to step up to the plate, this is what we have been talking about for the last decades.

We must not let this ultimate crisis go to waste and act.

By TeleSur - 01. April 2020

The 20-year-old woman from the Kokama people tested positive for the new coronavirus, COVID-19. 

An indigenous woman in a village deep in the Amazon rainforest has contracted the novel coronavirus, the first case reported among Brazil's more than 300 Indigenous Peoples, the Health Ministry's Indigenous health service (SESAI) said Wednesday.

The 20-year-old woman from the Kokama First Nation tested positive for the virus in the district of Santo Antonio do Içá, near the border with Colombia some 880 km (550 miles) up the Amazon river from the state capital Manaus, SESAI said in a statement.

Putting the Corona Virus (Covid-19) Deaths into Perspective

Who does really care ? WHO doesn't !

By Magda Havas - 01. April 2020:This is NO April Fool’s joke.  

The planet is in lock down as we battle the spread of the corona virus and try to minimize the spread of this disease.  Very few people saw this coming and there has been a lot of discussion about why this virus became a pandemic so quickly.  Lots of misinformation provided on the internet and it is difficult to distinguish between fact and fiction.  Time will tell which of the “conspiracy theories” are in fact “accurate information”.

In the meantime, I think it is important to put the number of cases and the deaths from COVID-19 into perspective.

Live information is provided on Worldometers.info.  I just accessed it at 11 pm (EST) on April 1st, 2020 and this is the latest information from worldometer for the globe.

Total Deaths this year = 14,810,426

UPDATE 02. April 2020: SARS-CoV-2 is "Lab-Made" | WE HAVE THE EVIDENCE!, says researcher (USA and CHINA involved).

Prologue: What all people of the world now really must demand is:

A) Scientifically established (reproducable) and peer reviewed evidence of the SARS-CoV-2 virus per se and its mutants and strains. (So far even that hasn't been done conclusively).

B) Proper and peer-reviewed tests that really can detect the proven virus (and not something else).

- without A and B there is no reason to believe in any of the circulated figures and no reason for any of the drastic governmental interventions that damage the life and wellbeing of people and the economy. 

Now over 1 Million people have alegedly been tested positive since January 2020, but the real figures of whatever different entities are testing with different - often highly inaccurate - methods is probably much higher and will dramatically increase as more tests become available. Over 50,000 people have passed away, who allegedly carried the virus, but they died not necessarily due to just this alleged viral infection. Most fatal cases - e.g. in Italy over 88% -had primary morbidities.

Noam Chomsky: Coronavirus - What is at stake?

RESIST !

With the crisis worsening, 91-year-old American linguist and political analyst Mr Chomsky claimed in a recent interview that COVID-19 is a glaring new example of the cruelty of neoliberal capitalism.

Speaking with Democracy in Europe Movement 2025 (DiEM25) co-founder Srecko Horvat on Saturday, the political philosopher argued the pandemic had been predicted long before its appearance, but actions to prepare for such a crisis were barred by the cruel imperatives of an economic order in which “there’s no profit in preventing a future catastrophe".

He said: "We should think about the origins of this crisis. Why is there a coronavirus crisis?

PROLOGUE: If SARS-CoV-2 is proven to be a virus that causes COVID-2 and this disease affects cats, immediate actions must follow to safeguard all members of the cat family, incl. the big cats in the wild.

SARS-coronavirus-2 can affect cats efficiently

Cats were found to be susceptible to SARS-CoV-2

Further Studies Urgently Required

By VF/ET - 30. March 2020

Research findings:

⚠️ SARS-CoV-2 replicates in cats and infected cats can infect other cats.

⚠️ Since it is the same virus that infects humans, infected cats might be able to infect humans and vice a versa.

⚠️ Cats therefore also can be a reservoir for SARS-CoV-2.

🔺️Despite the tremendous efforts to control the disease, COVID-19 has now spread to almost all countries and caused a global pandemic.

🔺️SARS-CoV- 2 is thought to have originated in bats; however, the intermediate animal sources of the virus are completely unknown.

🔺️Research into the susceptibility of ferrets, cats, dogs, and different domestic animals to SARS-coronavirus-2 was now carried out.

🔺️Research investigated the susceptibility of ferrets and animals in close contact with humans to SARS-CoV-2.

🔺️It was found that SARS-CoV-2 replicates poorly in dogs, pigs, chickens, and ducks, but efficiently in ferrets and cats. It was found that the virus transmits in cats via respiratory droplets.

Roadblocks Go Up On Navajo Nation, Curfew Enforced Amid COVID-19 Health Crisis

Revealed: Monsanto predicted crop system would damage US farms

Internal documents describe how to profit from farmer losses and desire to oppose some independent testing

By  - 30.

The US agriculture giant Monsanto and the German chemical giant BASF were aware for years that their plan to introduce a new agricultural seed and chemical system would probably lead to damage on many US farms, internal documents seen by the Guardian show.

Risks were downplayed even while they planned how to profit off farmers who would buy Monsanto’s new seeds just to avoid damage, according to documents unearthed during a recent successful $265m lawsuit brought against both firms by a Missouri farmer.

The documents, some of which date back more than a decade, also reveal how Monsanto opposed some third-party product testing in order to curtail the generation of data that might have worried regulators.

And in some of the internal BASF emails, employees appear to joke about sharing “voodoo science” and hoping to stay “out of jail”.

UPDATE 30. March 2020: NATO’s Dark Blueprint For Virus/Vaccine Warfare

PROLOGUE: The article below is also the perfect story - for those who want the perfect cover. Well researched, the media-piece is published by The Sydney Morning Herald, an Australian newspaper, that usually is not accused of being biased against China or the USA - the perfect outlet in the on-going dispute between the two mega-powers concerning the question who put the virus into the wild in the first place. The author's obvious intention to provide to the consumer of mainstream media a chain of three off-site culprits (bat, pangolin, Chinese wildlife market) sounds conclusive, but isn't. And to cover himself the author in a side-line even mentions that, confirming that the first documented COVID-19 patient had no contact with the Wuhan wet-market or these animals. Therefore: Back to square one and look deeper.

Lockdown violators are caught like stray dogs in Kathmandu. - see more further down

Meanwhile - especially if you are over 60 - prepare for the advanced Great Triage, because it was already applied in China and Iran and is reportedly now implemented in Spain and maybe Italy, with other countries getting close to it. Be aware, not because SARS-CoV-2 would be much more dangerous than other viri or bacteria causing pulmonary complications in humans, but because it is part of the polit-economic equation applied. And resist new Medical Martial Laws in countries, which hadn't prepared their legislation for Big Brother and the Hunger Games already. New Zealand has activated its "Spy On Your Neighbour" website to report lockdown violatations. The games are on and to achieve the outcomes wanted by the 1% and their tyrannical governances this virus is indeed perfect.

The perfect virus: two gene tweaks that turned COVID-19 into a killer

Horseshoe-Bats and Scaly Anteaters (Pangolins) are selected as scapegoats, but that is only part of the spin to cover the real source of SARS-CoV-2.

By Liam Mannix - SMH - 29. 

If you were to hold a Chinese horseshoe bat in your hand it would barely fill your palm, weighing little more than a ballpoint pen.

The creatures live in the darkness. Their name comes from their oddly-shaped noses, which look like upward-pointed horseshoes. Generally we ignore them and they ignore us.

In 2013, in the Chinese province of Yunnan, about 2000 kilometres south-west of Wuhan, a horseshoe bat was caught in a trap. Chinese scientists swabbed its mouth and checked the saliva for virus genes.

Queen Elizabeth II is ultimately responsible if the torture of Julian Assange persists or if he dies in her prison.

Barbaric British Decisions

By Dr. Binoy Kampmark - 29. March 2020

“To expose another human being to serious illness, and to the threat of losing their life, is grotesque and quite unnecessary. This is not justice, it is a barbaric decision.”- Kristinn Hrafnsson, editor-in-chief of WikiLeaks, March 26, 2020

Social distancing is not a word that seems to have reached certain parts of the British legal system.  Granted, it is an odd one, best refashioned as an anti-social act for the sake of preservation.  Marooned in some state of legal obliviousness, District Judge Vanessa Baraitser (image below) had little time for the bail application made by counsel for Julian Assange.  The WikiLeaks publisher had again rubbed the judicial person the wrong way.  Her memory was not unfazed: Assange had absconded in 2012 and had blotted his copy book.  He would not be permitted to it again.

Bob Dylan strikes again

Like a shot ricocheting at Heaven’s Door, Bob Dylan has released a masterpiece dissecting JFK's assassination

What spectacular timing. Like a shot ricocheting at Heaven’s Door as a virus pandemic rages and Planet Lockdown is the new normal, Bob Dylan has produced a stunning 17-minute masterpiece dissecting the November 22, 1963, assassination of JFK – releasing it at midnight US Eastern Standard Time on Thursday.

For baby boomers, not to mention obsessive Dylanologists, this is the ultimate sucker punch. Countless eyes will be plunged into swimming pools revisiting all the memories swirling around “the day they blew out the brains of the king / Thousands were watching, no one saw a thing.”  But that’s not all: the Dylanmobile takes us on a magical mystery tour of the 60s and 70s, complete with the Beatles, the Age of Aquarius and the Who’s “Tommy.”

COVID-19: MARTIAL LAW, DIGITAL CURRENCY, AND WORLD GOVERNMENT

The tyrannical trait hasn't been taken out of Man's genome and the equations of government.

By KURT NIMMO - 27. March 2020

Is the corporate media-generated hysteria over what appears to be a normal influenza virus happenstance? 

I certainly don’t claim to be a financial wizard. In fact, at best, I have a rudimentary understanding of how the convoluted funny money economy works. However, you don’t need to fully comprehend the ins-and-outs of rigged monetary system to understand we’re in for big trouble and the coronavirus “pandemic” is not only accelerating the fall but will make the outcome far, far worse. 

For more detail on the financial end of this disaster, read Mike Whitney’s Why Washington’s COVID-19 Relief Package Must Be Stopped!

No chance, however. As I write this, Congress passed a pork-laden “stimulus” bill. 

UPDATE 27. March 2020: The U.S. Now Leads the World in Confirmed Coronavirus Cases. In the United States, at least 81,321 people are known to have been infected with the coronavirus, including more than 1,000 deaths — more cases than China, Italy or any other country has seen, according to data gathered by The New York Times. Other sources like HERE or HERE or HERE or HERE or from this MAP list already 85,749 infected and 1,311 dead in the USA. "Sick Man" America will take many others down while dying. 

Venezuela’s Coronavirus Response Might Surprise You

- but inhumane USA blocks medical and other evacuation flights for stranded Venezuelans back to Venezuela. 

With medical and humanitarian help from Cuba, China and Russia the Venezuelan people also survive the coronavirus onslaught

By Leonardo Flores - ICH - 27. March 2020

Within a few hours of being launched, over 800 Venezuelans in the U.S. registered for an emergency flight from Miami to Caracas through a website run by the Venezuelan government. This flight, offered at no cost, was proposed by President Nicolás Maduro when he learned that 200 Venezuelans were stuck in the United States following his government’s decision to stop commercial flights as a preventative coronavirus measure. The promise of one flight expanded to two or more flights, as it became clear that many Venezuelans in the U.S. wanted to go back to Venezuela, yet the situation remains unresolved due to the U.S. ban on flights to and from the country.

Those who rely solely on the mainstream media might wonder who in their right mind would want to leave the United States for Venezuela. Numerous outlets—including TIME magazine, the Washington PostThe Hill, the Miami Herald, and others—published opinions in the past week describing Venezuela as a chaotic nightmare. These media outlets painted a picture of a coronavirus disaster, of government incompetence and of a nation teetering on the brink of collapse. The reality of Venezuela’s coronavirus response is not covered by the mainstream media at all.

Celebrate Lobo Week with Hope for Mexican Gray Wolves

By Craig Miller - 26. March 2020

It’s Lobo Week and we have great news to share: The Mexican gray wolf, one of the world’s rarest land mammals, is making a comeback in the wild!  Earlier this month the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) released its official 2019 Mexican gray wolf population count revealing that 163 individual wolves in 42 packs are in the wild in Arizona and New Mexico, up 24% from last year’s count! 

This is an amazing achievement considering that just a few decades ago these rare wolves had been eliminated from the wild and reduced to just a handful of captive individuals. 

Wolves play a key ecological role in keeping ecosystems healthy. They help to keep deer and elk populations in check, which benefits many other plant and animal species while keeping forests diverse and resilient to drought, disease and wildfire.

Frightened Mobs in Peru Burn Hundreds of Bats With Torches as Coronavirus Hysteria Grows

Peruvian authorities urged locals to understand that "bats are not our enemies."

Bats in Peru killed by hysteric mob.

By Elias Marat - 26.

(TMU) — As the coronavirus outbreak continues to grow, misinformation in the form of fake news, rumors, and gossip have continued to feed mass hysteria and panic over the deadly disease.

In Peru, this has resulted in locals attempting to fight CoViD-19 by attacking communities of bats despite the fact that the novel virus still hasn’t been decisively proven to have originated from the winged creature.

On Wednesday, the Peruvian government issued a statement warning residents to stop killing bats after authorities were forced to intervene when roughly half a thousand of the flying mammals came under attack by gangs of peasants hoping to exterminate what they believed were carriers of the disease, reports Peruvian network América Noticias.
