UPDATE 22. May 2020: Pentagon claim of zero civilian deaths in Yemen is divorced from reality
UPDATE 13. April 2020: Saudis are preventing aid from entering Yemen
ALERT UPDATE 08. April 2020: Obviously some test-kits have finally been brought to Yemen and the first case of COVID-19 has been established in eastern Yemen. Another catastrophe in the making.
PROLOQUE: Almost all humanitarian and nature protection work in Yemen is brought to a near stand-still by the onslaught of the British-led and U.S.-financed war machine - targeting mainly civilians - under the banner of Saudi-Arabia and the UAE. These are the same war-crimes as they were committed by British troops - now under official investigation - in Afghanistan. Together with U.S.troops the Brits also continue to violate the sacrosanct World Heritage Site of the Island of Socotra, though the world had demanded that they should leave immediately. Bad Karma from all the civilian deaths seems to haunt now Boris Johnson.
Unreported in British media, British troops have landed in Aden. All that awaits them is the graveyard of imperialist ambitions.
By PW - 04. April 2020
Five years into Riyadh’s imperialist-sponsored war against the Yemeni people, a war conducted with the maximum savagery and cowardice, the corrupt feudal sheikhdom of Saudi Arabia is further than ever from achieving any of its goals – or any of the war aims of its imperialist sponsors in the USA and Britain.
The much-loathed and deservedly ousted former president, Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi, continues to cool his heels in Riyadh, waiting in vain for his hosts to succeed in bludgeoning his fellow countrymen into having him back.
Meanwhile, the national resistance forces continue to hold their own, whilst the Saudi alliance is increasingly weak and divided – its mercenary forces being consistently hammered in the ground war, and only able to function at all thanks to the brutal air war conducted against the civilian population.
If the war could have been won simply by piling misery upon misery on the long-suffering Yemeni people, Hadi and his sponsors would long ago have prevailed.
UPDATE 22. May 2020: EU Planning “Vaccination Passport” Since 2018
POLOGUE: The Australian government and its mainstream society did proof that they are not even able to prevent and fight devastating forest fires successfully (without the rains the fires still would burn), respect the Aboriginal owners of the continent, handle refugees with dignity, protect the Great Barrier reef and other natural gems or - not at least - free and bring home their most famous journalist and publisher, Julian Assange. Therefore nobody can expect that they manage the COVID-19 situation benevolently and for the benefit of the people. Thus the people must rise up against these machinations. One big problem is that the very body - the United Nations Organization - that is supposed to safeguard our universally guaranteed right to privacy, is striving itself for the global domination slot and is on the very forefront of surveillance of people. With implementing it by runs on helpless refugee communities and camps, UNHCR and UNICEF are the spearheads and worst offenders unleashed by the UN - having paid since years app-developers millions to create the tools, without that the public noticed or taxpayers of the funding governments authorized them to do so. The corralling systems developed by these agencies since many decades hold even more in stock for you, since the populace is only seen as chattel.
Efficacy, ideology and COVIDSafe
Questions remain over measuring the effectiveness of the Australian government’s tracking app, COVIDSafe, along with the mission creep it is sure to entail

A Timeline—Pandemic and Erosion of Freedoms Have Been Decades in the Making
By CHD - 21. May 2020
From the moment of “COVID-19’s” naming—and particularly since the imposition of unprecedented restrictions on “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness”—some people have smelled a rat.
And with each passing week, the smell becomes worse.
A growing chorus of ordinary citizens and world-renowned medical and scientific experts is raising questions about matters ranging from the coronavirus’s origins to the rationale for continued lockdowns (see here, here and here).
The mainstream media have shown themselves only too ready to lob ad hominem attacks against any and all such non-conformists. However, one does not have to be insensitive to the illness and deaths associated with COVID-19 to recognize that powerful agendas are riding on the coattails of SARS-CoV-2.
Neither a man nor a crowd nor a nation can be trusted to act humanely or to think sanely under the influence of a great fear. — Bertrand Russell
Has the latest pandemic made you realize that fear and scarcity control you by addicting you to a self-centered mode of survival? Ergo, the global runs on toilet rolls, masks, food supplies, etc.
Welcome to the paradigm we have co-created — where corporate persons (especially Big Business) control the access to our basic necessities (e.g. what we eat and drink, our health, where we live and just about everything about our lives). Since their exclusive reason for being is to have no greater god than growth, doesn’t this mean our lives revolve around serving them instead of them serving us and our wellbeing?
Sustainable Investing Is Booming — But Where Is the Impact?
By Florian Heeb (*) - 19. May 2020
The growth of sustainable investing is welcome news to those who believe a more conscious allocation of capital can cure society’s pains. A few years ago, sustainable investments were niche products. Now, almost every retail investing outlet offers a wide range of financial products marketed as sustainable. The increasing desire of investors to contribute to solving the world’s challenges is among the key drivers behind the trend. Accordingly, sellers of a large proportion of sustainable investing products make explicit claims of positive impact.
DOMINICA ON TRACK TO BECOME FIRST “CLIMATE-RESILIENT” NATION BY 2030
Back in September 2017, Hurricane Maria devastated the island of Dominica, killing at least 31 people, wrecking roofs on nine in ten buildings, battering forests, and causing rivers to overspill, destroying even more homes. All of this damage cost the Caribbean island nation roughly $1.3 billion — 224% of its total GDP.
Fast forward to today, and the island is well on the way to recovery, with the cleanup largely over, and a renewed focus on the future emerging. To this end, Dominica’s most impressive ambition is to become the world’s first climate-resilient nation by 2030, which includes implementing hurricane-proofing measures to lessen the impact of any future weather events. This was first proposed by Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit in an impassioned speech to the UN General Assembly, just five days after the storm.
Exclusive: UK military and arms companies produce more carbon emissions than 60 individual countries
By Matt Kennard and Mark Curtis - 19 May 2020
The greenhouse gas emissions produced by the UK military and its supply chain are up to 11 times higher than admitted by the Ministry of Defence, which has produced a ‘pattern of flawed reporting’ on its environmental impacts, new research carried out for Declassified UK has found.
The first independent calculation of its kind has found that Britain’s military-industrial sector annually emits more greenhouse gases than 60 individual countries, such as Uganda, which has a population of 45 million people.
PROLOGUE: While the world has been conditioned to just see the genocide in Rwanda as an affair between the ethnicities of the Tutsi and the Hutu people, it is often overlooked that it was the culmination of a proxy war with France, the USA, the UN and still Belgium as well as Uganda and DR Congo being major players. In addition it is completely overlooked that it also was a genocide against the Indigenous Twa people, who are the aboriginal forest people living in peace in Rwanda. Because they were seen as underdogs by the majority of the society in Rwanda, both the Hutu as well as the Tutsi believed they were used as spies by the respective other side - so both slaughtered the Twa in 1994, and until today no real justice has come forward to address this genocide. While the international and regional players, as well as the Tutsi and the Hutu came somehow to terms, the genocide against the Twa continues in Rwanda and Burundi as well as in Uganda and the DRC. The trial of the now nabbed key suspect will hopefully bring the genocide against the Twa to the forefront and also reveal how he could hide in France for so long, while powerful figures in the Kenya government were accused to harbour and shield him in Kenya. Did it take the French 26 years to spin their own narrative afresh to deliver him only now to the Hague?

COVID-views from the perspective of a 26-year-old.
By Brittany E. Pembroke - 14. May 2020
How did we, the Australians, get ‘Covid-19’ so wrong?
The response of the government of Australia to the ‘Covid-19’-crisis seems to be destroying years of ‘post-war freedoms’ and the very essence of what makes our country so great.
I believe Australia has gone too far in an attempt to be a ‘global hero’ and this very action will be to our detriment.
I understand that we needed to renounce some liberties to ‘flatten the curve’ due to this ‘unknown enemy’. But I do fear this has come now at an unbelievable cost to the Australian livelihood, all in an attempt to be abiding global citizen.
Today ‘Covid-19’ is playing out to be more a political issue than a health issue. And this has me thinking about the deeper issues at play.
In this powerful interview Spiro is joined with Doctor Andrew Kaufman. Spiro and Dr. Kaufman discuss the expanding curtailment of basic civil liberties being normalized under the false pretext of a global health emergency.
Doctor Kaufman lays his reputation and his career on the line as he blows the whistle on what he describes as a manufactured crisis to carry out a preplanned agenda to facilitate global governance and population control.
Doctor Kaufman is a well-educated medical professional who convincingly illustrates, using the CDC’s own technical data, how the public has been manipulated on the grandest scale.
UPDATE 10. May, 2020: Pastoralists into New Round of Negotiations with those who Want to Wipe them off the Map of Ngorongoro
Urgent UPDATE 05. March 2020:UK High Court ruled against Dubai's Sheikh Mohammed and established that he abducted daughters and threatened wife - he has become a discrase an the Tanzanian government should stop him from holding vast lands of the Indigenous Maasai in Tanzania on lease in cruel manner.
Prologue: The Loliondogate scandal erupted already back in 1991 and evolved 1993 after the businessman and at the time deputy minister for defence of the UAE, Mohammed Abdul Rahim Al Ali, had on 11th November 1992 been granted a most irregular 10-year contract for the Loliondo hunting blocks North and South in the interest of Sheikh Mohammed of Dubai and his son the Crown Prince Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. There the company (OBC), which he was advised to set up by the then Tanzanian Minister for Natural Resources and Tourism Mgumia, would start its operation on 1st April 1993. During almost 30 years many scandals and atrocities were caused by the Arab presence in Northern Tanzania, people were murderd and crippled, a foreign journalist was killed and others got imprisioned and expelled, local people were evicted and tortured, wildlife was maimed, livestock was destroyed and houses burned to the ground, but the Tanzanian government was so far not able to get rid of this menace desecrating the lands of the Maasai. That they can be stopped was shown by an international activist action when the same group also wanted to grab the Yaida valley, ancetral home of the Hadza people, the last hunter-gatherer culture in East Africa. But in the case of Loliondo it is so far only proven that the Tanzanian government is either too weak or too corrupt to cleanse the land, end the presence of malicious foreign entities like OBC, Thompson or others and maintain the peace for the benefit of the local Maasai community.
Tanzania must finally also worry for its reputation, if President Magafuli continues to allow the UAE to wreck havov in Tanzania. The United Arab Emirates (UAE) is accused of hashtag#WarSlavery in its war against the impoverished nation of Yemen. A security company in the hashtag#UAE called hashtag#BlackShield is being accused of deception, after giving jobs to young Sudanese men who say they were then sent to fight in wars. Dozens have managed to return home, but many others are believed to still be in Yemen or Libya.
Violence erupts yet again against the Maasai in Loliondo, northern Tanzania
In September 2018, the East African Court of Justice granted an interim order preventing the government of Tanzania and its agents from evicting people from four Maasai villages in northern Tanzania: Ololosokwan, Oloirien, Kirtalo, and Arashi.
This was a major victory for the Maasai, who have faced a series of violent evictions in recent years. But less than two months later, Susanna Nordlund reports that evictions have started again.
Nordlund has been documenting human rights abuses in the name of tourism and conservation in Loliondo since 2010.
Since 1992, Otterlo Business Corporation (OBC) has been running hunting safaris on the Maasai’s territory. OBC is a United Arab Emirates company. Nordlund writes that,
In wide areas around the camp of OBC, that organizes hunting for Sheikh Mohammed of Dubai, people are being attacked and beaten, and chased away together with their cattle. This is not only a crime against human rights and Tanzanian law, but it’s a serious violation of interim orders issued by the East African Court of Justice on 25th September this year.
UPDATE 10. May 2020: The German Magazine DER SPIEGEL published a bombshell report based on intelligence sources stating: Chinese President Xi Jinping personally asked World Health Organization Director-General Tedros Adhanom to 'delay a global warning' about the threat of COVID-19 in January.
UPDATE 22. April 2020: Most dumps on pastebin have already been removed, which shows that pastebin is no longer the best place to deposit findings. However, there is a lot of talk on the timing of the release, the media silence etc. etc. - and there is even the question if it was an intrusion by real hackers or a cover for a break-in by a government-led investigation. However, it remains to be seen, if some good people checking through the data, can come up with facts that shed light on the background of the COVID-19 related mass death and the whole global hostage situation.

South Dakota Governor Demands Indigenous Leaders Remove Checkpoints Set Up to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19
By Madeleine Carlisle - 10. May 2020
Cheyenne River Sioux and Oglala Sioux leaders have rejected South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem’s demand that they remove checkpoints meant to regulate traffic through their reservation, set up to prevent the spread of coronavirus on Indigenous lands.
In early April, the Indigenous peoples’ governments separately decided to regulate travel on and off their 'reservations' via checkpoints. The Oglala Sioux Tribe closed the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to all non-residents for non-essential travel, though vehicles could pass through without stopping. The Cheyenne River Sioux also restricted travel, limiting non-residents from entering their 'reservation' unless on essential business or if the First Nation government has granted them a travel permit. Residents and non-residents entering the reservation must fill out a health questionnaire.
Almost every corner of the planet will soon be monitored by video surveillance satellites capable of live-streaming coverage of human activity for “governments and large enterprises”— if Bill Gates gets it his way.
Microsoft founder Bill Gates is bankrolling a company that is using a $1 billion initial equity allocation from investors to plan a network of satellites to provide real-time coverage of almost every location on Earth.
Washington-based company EarthNow plans to launch an army of more than 500 satellites into our atmosphere, providing its users with near instantaneous video feedback with only one second of delay.
I have been here before. This feeling of uncertainty and not knowing. It is true that this crisis is not exactly the same as the last time, but the feelings I am having are the same. Together, we are all dealing with a great deal of uncertainty. Am I in a dream? This feels more like a bad movie.
When the financial crisis hit in 2008, I remember these same feelings. I remember the anxiety, the denial, the fear and the panic but mostly I remember watching how everyone stayed in some of these stages and yet others moved quickly through them. Why is it that some people are just more resilient and others are so much more prepared? Why was it that some people seemed to take things in stride and others were devastated after 2008? What makes someone resilient? I wanted to be more resilient and I started to take a personal inventory of my own mental reservoir. I started to focus on building that.
PROLOGUE: Though often unabated also before the present COVID-19 lockdowns the robbing of nature is now rampant worldwide. Wildlife killing, deforestation and illegal fishing are on the upsurge. While abusing the poorest of the poor to do the dirty work, powerful networks are raking in the criminal proceeds, while environmental and humanitarian organizations run out of funding.
Exclusive: Investigating how North Korean fishermen plunder foreign waters
By Elena VOLOCHINE & Ian M. QUY - 08. May 2020
In this exclusive 35-minute documentary, we expose a massive and unknown fish smuggling and supply network in the Pacific Ocean. Every year, an armada of North Korean ghost ships invade the waters of the Russian Far East and Japan. From Vladivostok to North Korea, via China, our reporter Elena Volochine investigated the illegal fishing networks of the world's most secretive country, North Korea.
Every year, during the squid fishing season between June and October, thousands of makeshift boats invade the waters of the Exclusive Economic Zones of Japan and Russia. These coarse wooden boats, made of studded planks covered with tar, with plastic propellers and stones as anchors, belong to the flotilla of secretive North Korea. Its leader Kim Jong Un is said to have ordered his people to fish more and more to feed the country, squeezed hard by international sanctions.
