George Galloway speaks the truth.


That must remain or become again the guideline of proper journalism.

Britain's Ambassador to Washington Sir Kim Darroch claimed that Donald Trump abandoned the Iran nuclear deal as an act of 'diplomatic vandalism' to spite his predecessor Barack Obama - a leaked cable reveiled.

The cable was included in a second batch of leaked reports published by the Mail on Sunday newspaper, the first of which caused Darroch to resign earlier this week.

'What’s the difference between what the Mail on Sunday did and what and Julian did?', asks George Galloway.

There are currently more than seven and a half billion people on earth, with the UN projecting that number will hit 10 billion by 2056.

At the end of the year the United States is estimated to have a population of over 329 million.

It took 200,000 years for humanity to reach the first billion people, but after that it only took 200 more years to hit seven billion.

In honor of the United Nation's World Population Day, here are five graphics to help you understand how the number of people in the world has grown.

As fuel prices rise, firewood thieves vex rural Kenyans

By REUTERS - July 15 2019

In Summary

  • Local assistant police chief Lawrence Micheni linked firewood theft to increasing demand for firewood in rural shopping centres, as fuel prices rise and buyers try to cut costs.
  • “Chicken and crop theft are the most common crimes reported at my office. But this firewood theft is something new,” Micheni said, shaking his head in disgust at the crime.

IT IS ALL IN THE HANDS OF ONE MAN - Uhuru Muigai Kenyatta, the fourth president and son of the founding father of the young multinational state, the Republic of Kenya. If he is ready to (re)cover Kenya with a gigantic reafforestation program (like Msitu ni Mali was created by the late "Mwalimu" Julius Nyerere in Tanzania) then we are ready and standby to help him, Kenyans and Kenya too. Uhuru Kenyatta can just say YES and contact us to get it rolled out - without IFs or BUTs - and at the same time get millions of jobless youth into meaningful employment.

Lucy Muthoni has never liked dogs. But these days, a pair of mean-looking hounds tail her as she makes the rounds at her farm in central Kenya.

The untold story behind hunting in Botswana

Opinion post from Gail Potgieter – Human-wildlife conflict specialistGail Potgieter - AG - 12. July 2019

The debate surrounding Botswana’s recent decision to lift the hunting ban is highly polarised, and both sides have marshalled various facts and figures to argue their case. These figures, especially the numbers of living and poached elephants, are hotly debated and contested, with some even questioning the motives behind the research.

As a conservation scientist, I am wary of questioning the results of conservation research, especially when it is clear that the researchers are ultimately interested in conserving wildlife. I have therefore sought to cut through the politics of the debate, focus on the actual research results and draw some conclusions, which I want to share with you.

Top Assange Defense Account Deleted By Twitter

Outragious: Twitter is deleting freedom ighter's accounts everywhere and now even the a movement's unity acount in defence o Julian Assange

[Check below on Social Media Alternatives - leave the FANGs (Facebook, Apple, Netflix an Google), Youtube and Twitter!]

By - 12. July 2019

One of the biggest Twitter accounts dedicated to circulating information and advocacy for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange, @Unity4J, has been completely removed from the site. The operators of the account report that they have been given no reason for its removal by Twitter staff, and have received no response to their appeals.

Any Assange supporter active on Twitter will be familiar with the Unity4J account, which originated to help boost the wildly successful Unity4J online vigils in which well-known Assange defenders would appear to speak out against his persecution. As of this writing, the account has been gone for a day and a half.

Regenerative Agriculture is Having a Moment and 70 Investments Worth $47.5bn are in it

Regenerative, organic, decentralized and autonomous agriculture, holding land and seed sovereignty in the hands of the farmer, is the future.


Regenerative agriculture is having a moment. For long-time regen ag practitioners and proponents, this is probably jarring. But having written about regenerative agriculture for five years now, I’ve never seen such engagement or our stories about this ultra-sustainable method of farming perform so well.

Readers aren’t only engaging with the subject matter — the comments boards on these two stories are worth wading through — but the number of headlines about the strategy is also growing as more and more businesses realize the potential in what is, in fact, an age-old farming strategy.

Cargill CEO David MacLennan - consistently the last to adopt and implement any policies to protect workers and the environment - heads a 'family-business' that was awarded the title of being the worst company on Earth.

The worst company in the world. We recognize that this is an audacious claim. But when it comes to addressing the most important problems facing our world, including the destruction of the natural environment, the pollution of our air and water, the warming of the globe, the displacement of Indigenous peoples, child labor, and global poverty, Cargill is not only consistently in last place, but is driving these problems at a scale that dwarfs their closest competitors.

That Cargill would make a grand commitment and then ignore it shouldn’t be a big surprise.

From having their membership in the Chicago Board of Trade suspended shortly after incorporating for trying to corner the market on corn and artificially drive up its price, to being responsible for the distribution of more than 150,000 pounds of contaminated beef to supermarkets just last year — Cargill has a long and sordid history of duplicity, deception and destruction. Just the past two decades provide dozens of examples.

Wildlife trafficking: Organized crime hit hard by joint INTERPOL-WCO global enforcement operation

10. July 2019

Environmental crime is not restricted by borders, and can affect a nation’s economy, security and even its existence.

LYON, France - A joint worldwide customs and police operation has resulted in the seizure of large quantities of protected flora and fauna across every continent.

From 4 – 30 June, INTERPOL and the World Customs Organization (WCO) coordinated Operation Thunderball, with police and customs administrations leading joint enforcement operations against wildlife and timber crime across 109 countries.


The WHO cover-up that is costing us the Earth

"A must-read, if ever there was one!"

A wireless wake-up call, with a message for all of humanity

By Olga Sheean - 08. July 2019

​Radiation from wireless technologies now spans the globe, affecting all forms of life. The resulting electromagnetic fields (EMFs) are causing epidemics of illness, addictions and disorders that often fail to be attributed to the true underlying cause. 

With humour, insights and discoveries from the forefront of modern science, this book tells a profoundly personal story, revealing the deeper truth about our love affair with technology, why governments are hiding the facts, and how neuroplasticity and quantum physics are transforming our perception of reality and our capacity to transform our personal and planetary health.

Report Shows How War Profiteers Are Now Refugee Profiteers, Too

Arms dealers flood war-torn Middle East with weapons and then lobby EU to militarize borders against refugees—profiting from both ends of conflict

As Europe comes to terms with a Brexit vote fueled in large part by anti-immigrant hate-mongering, a new report exposes how war profiteers are influencing EU policy to make money from unending Middle East conflicts as well as the wave of refugees created by that same instability and violence.

The report (pdf), Border Wars: The Arms Dealers Profiting from Europe's Refugee Tragedy, released jointly by the European Stop Wapenhandel and Transnational Institute (TNI) on Monday, outlines arms traders' pursuit of profit in the 21st century's endless conflicts.

"There is one group of interests that have only benefited from the refugee crisis, and in particular from the European Union's investment in 'securing' its borders,'" the report finds. "They are the military and security companies that provide the equipment to border guards, the surveillance technology to monitor frontiers, and the IT infrastructure to track population movements."

Massive Forest Restoration Could Greatly Slow Global Warming

The right trees, planted in the right locations, could store 205 gigatons of carbon dioxide and employ the unemployed

Global tree restoration potential and needs are massive.

By - 04.

We have heard for years that planting trees can help save the world from global warming. That mantra was mostly a statement of faith, however. Now the data finally exist to show that if the right species of trees are planted in the right soil types across the planet, the emerging forests could capture 205 gigatons of carbon dioxide in the next 40 to 100 years. That's two thirds of all the CO2 humans have generated since the industrial revolution. "Forest restoration is by far our most powerful planetary solution today," says Tom Crowther, a professor of global ecosystem ecology at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, and an author of a study published Thursday in Science that generated the eye-opening number.

Campaign To Help Stop 5G Globally

5G Is A Major Global Health Hazard & How You Can Help Us Stop It

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    We recently launched a campaign to do our part and dive deep into the 5G issue. With censorship and demonetization of our platform, we need your help to do the work that we do to play our part. 5G is a global health hazard that needs to be stoped.

  • Reflect On:

    How can technologies like this rollout without any appropriate safety testing from our federal health regulatory agencies? How much corruption and lies go into the approval of various products and services that surround all aspects of humanity?

One mystery of our modern day world is how products and services continue to gain approval that are clearly harmful to human health. Many of these products and services are completely exempt from any health and safety testing by our federal health regulatory agencies, or our federal health regulatory agencies become compromised by big corporations that seem to control them and dictate government policy.


Brazil deforestation exceeds 88% in June under so-called president Bolsonaro

Bolsonaro commits Ecocide in the Amazon

By Jake Spring - Reuters - 03. 07. 2019

Deforestation in Brazil’s portion of the Amazon rainforest soared more than 88% in June compared with the same month a year ago, the second consecutive month of rising forest destruction under new President Jair Bolsonaro, who has called for development of the region.

According to data from Brazil’s space research agency, deforestation in the world’s largest tropical rainforest totaled 920 square km (355 square miles).

The data showing an 88.4% deforestation increase is preliminary but indicates the official annual figure, based on more detailed imaging and measured for the 12 months to the end of July, is well on track to surpass last year’s figure.

Ships set off in Japan's first commercial whale hunt in more than 30 years

By Elaine Lies, Masashi Kato - Reuters - 01. July 2019

KUSHIRO, Japan (Reuters) - Five small ships sailed out of harbor on Monday in Japan’s first commercial whale hunt in more than three decades, a move that has aroused global condemnation and fears for the fate of whales.

Japan has long said few whale species are endangered, and news in December that it was leaving the International Whaling Commission (IWC) to resume hunting was the culmination of years of campaigns by industry supporters and Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, whose constituency includes a city that has long whaled.

“If we had more whale available, we’d eat it more,” said Sachiko Sakai, a 66-year-old taxi driver in Kushiro, a gritty port city on the northernmost main island of Hokkaido, where the whaling ships were waved out of harbor in a brief ceremony.

“It’s part of Japan’s food culture,” said Sakai, adding that she ate a lot of whale as a child. “The world opposes killing whales, but you can say the same thing about many of the animals bred on land and killed for food.”

Botswana has an elephant poaching problem, not an overpopulation problem

Killing for sport or trophy and poaching destroy the largest Elephant population in the world for short term gains of government or criminals.

By Ross Harvey - 30. June 2019

The Botswana government recently reintroduced trophy hunting after a five-year moratorium. It did so on the pretext that Botswana has 'too many elephants'.

But a newacademic paper shows that this argument doesn't hold.

The researchers compared the results of two aerial surveys in northern Botswana. The first was conducted in 2014, the second in 2018. Both were conducted during the dry season. This allowed for easy detection of changes over time.

A 94,000km2 area was studied and the elephant population estimated at 122,700 in 2018. This was roughly similar to the 2014 numbers.
