Soon back to Venezuela: German Ambassador Daniel Kriener - here as he was seen shielding coup plotter Juan Guaido (left).

Update SUN 30. June 2019 (vf): The Venezuelan government has announced the return of German Ambassador Daniel Kriener. Germany and Venezuela agreed at a bilateral meeting in Berlin on a "normalization" of their relations, the Venezuelan Foreign Ministry announced. The Federal Government had already agreed to "return" Krieners.
The German Foreign Office said on Monday that Venezuela had informed Germany that Ambassador Kriener was no longer "persona non grata". The German ministry will discuss the next steps in the coming days, it added.
In March, the government of left-wing President Nicols Maduro declared the German ambassador Persona Non Grata (undesirable person). Kriener and other diplomats had greeted Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guido on his return to Venezuela's capital, Caracas, at the airport.
Venezuela is affected by a bitter power struggle between Maduro and Guaido since months. At the end of April, a coup attempt by parts of the armed forces against Maduro had failed. The Venezuelan head of state can still count on the backing of the military leadership and is supported, among other 150 countries, by Russia, China and Turkey. German companies Lufthansa and Siemens prepare to return to Venezuela.

Declaration of Digital Independence

Monticello (Thomas Jefferson’s residence) (c) 2019 Larry Sanger

By Larry Sanger - (version 1.3) - 29. June 2019

Humanity has been contemptuously used by vast digital empires. Thus it is now necessary to replace these empires with decentralized networks of independent individuals, as in the first decades of the Internet. As our participation has been voluntary, no one doubts our right to take this step. But if we are to persuade as many people as possible to join together and make reformed networks possible, we should declare our reasons for wanting to replace the old.

We declare that we have unalienable digital rights, rights that define how information that we individually own may or may not be treated by others, and that among these rights are free speech, privacy, and security. Since the proprietary, centralized architecture of the Internet at present has induced most of us to abandon these rights, however reluctantly or cynically, we ought to demand a new system that respects them properly. The difficulty and divisiveness of wholesale reform means that this task is not to be undertaken lightly. For years we have approved of and even celebrated enterprise as it has profited from our communication and labor without compensation to us. But it has become abundantly clear more recently that a callous, secretive, controlling, and exploitative animus guides the centralized networks of the Internet and the corporations behind them.

The long train of abuses we have suffered makes it our right, even our duty, to replace the old networks. To show what train of abuses we have suffered at the hands of these giant corporations, let these facts be submitted to a candid world.

For The First Time In 17 Years, ZERO Whales Will Be Harpooned In Icelandic Waters This Summer

Whalewatching - the better option!

By McKinley Corbley

For the first time in 17 years, there will be no whaling in Icelandic waters this summer.

Due to a shrinking international market for whale meat and the expansion of a no-fishing coastal zone, both of the nation’s major whaling companies have decided to abandon their summer hunting season altogether, meaning that no whales of any kind will be hunted in Iceland.

By Jenny Gonzales - Mongabay - 28. June 2019

Already completed and proposed infrastructure projects, along with infrastructure investment plans, either directly threaten or put pressure on 68 percent of the indigenous lands and protected natural areas in the Amazon region, according to a newly published report prepared by the Amazonian Geo-referenced Socio-Environmental Information Network (RAISG), a group of specialists from NGOs and other organizations within six Amazon region countries.

The data sets are presented in the form of six maps, each corresponding to an infrastructure-related activity or practice present in the Amazon, including transport (ie. roads), energy (ie. hydroelectric dams), mining, oil, deforestation and fires. The 2019 edition takes account of development in the headwaters of Amazonian rivers, information not included in past reports. The nine nations evaluated are Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador, Guiana, Suriname and French Guiana.

Missing and murdered: Canada's genocide cover-up

Debwe, led by Mushkiiki Nibi Kwe (Lindsey Lickers) with artists Leah Roberts, Maybella King Reynolds, and Shaneixqui Brown, forms part of the art installation Red Embers dedicated to Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

Canada’s denial of race-based genocide has allowed systemic violence against Indigenous women and girls in particular to continue in plain sight. The only question now should be what is Canada going to do about it?


It’s no longer up for debate. Canada is guilty of genocide.

The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls has found that Canada has and continues to engage in “race-based genocide.” 

The inquiry called to investigate the circumstances surrounding the murder and disappearance of an estimated 1,200 Indigenous women and girls came to its conclusion after hearing from their family members, survivors of violence and expert witnesses, as well as conducting its own independent research. 

This was not an academic exercise nor a political tactic, as some pundits in the mainstream press have suggested. The finding that Canada is guilty of genocide is based firmly on the evidence and law. 

Canadians should not be shocked.

Sanctions are often considered to be economic warfare like military blockades.

By Prof. Alfred de Zayas, Geneva School of Diplomacy - Speech given at Vienna, 27 June 2019

Excellencies, distinguished colleagues, ladies and gentlemen,

The world order established by the UN Charter takes precedence over other international and regional treaties and imposes positive and negative obligations on member states, including the United States of America and the European Union. This is stipulated in Article 103 of the Charter, the supremacy clause.

The question arises whether in the light of the UN Charter unilateral coercive measures could be considered compatible with modern international law?  The orthodox answer is that only those sanctions that are imposed by the Security Council under Chapter VII can be considered legal. Article 41 of the charter stipulates “The Security Council may decide what measures not involving the use of armed force are to be employed to give effect to its decisions “.  But even Security Council decisions and resolutions must be compatible with the purposes and principles enunciated in articles 1, 2, 55 and 56 of the UN Charter and not violate fundamental norms of international law, customary international law, or treaties such as the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which stipulate inter alia the right to life, the right to health and the right to medical care.  Allow me to quote from the 1993 Vienna Declaration and Programme of Action, which called upon States “to refrain from any unilateral measures… that create obstacles to trade relations among states and impedes the full realization of the human rights set forth in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”[1]

‘Modified’: A Film About GMOs and the Corruption of “Food Supply for Profit”

Parts of the documentary Modified are spent at the kitchen table. But it’s not really a tale about wonderful recipes or the preparation of food. Ultimately, it’s a story of capitalism, money and power and how our most basic rights are being eroded by unscrupulous commercial interests.

By Colin Todhunter - Global Research - 24. June 2019

The film centres on its maker, Aube Giroux, who resides in Nova Scotia, Canada. Her interest in food and genetically modified organisms (GMOs) was inspired by her mother, Jali, who also appears throughout. Aube says that when her parents bought their first house her mother immediately got rid of the lawn and planted a huge garden where she grew all kinds of heirloom vegetables, berries, flowers, legumes and garlic.

“She wanted me and my sister to grow up knowing the story behind the food that we ate, so our backyard was basically our grocery store,” says Aube.

During the film, we are treated not only to various outdoor scenes of the Giroux’s food garden (their ‘grocery store’) but also to Aube and her mother’s passion for preparing homemade culinary delights. The ‘backyard’ is the grocery store and much of Giroux family life revolves around the kitchen and the joy of healthy, nutritious food.

When GMOs first began appearing in food, Aube says that what bothered her mother was that some of the world’s largest chemical companies were patenting these new genetically engineered seeds and controlling the seed market.

Mailchimp shuts down GreenMedInfo newsletter for sharing science about vaccines

Just as we predicted, Big Tech’s censorship crusade is now breaching the bounds of social media and influencing digital service providers, which are increasingly shutting down access to clients that engage in politically-incorrect speech.

The email service provider Mailchimp, as one of the latest examples, has reportedly shut down the email newsletter of GreenMedInfo, which had been reaching as many as 300,000 people worldwide.

According to GreenMedInfo, the termination was sudden, and was predicated upon Mailchimp’s disapproval of GreenMedInfo sharing scientific information about vaccines that contradicts the official government narrative that all vaccines are 100 percent safe and effective.

Suicide rate for Native American women is up 139%

The U.S. suicide rate is up 33% since 1999, but for Native American women and men, the increase is even greater: 139% and 71%, respectively, according to an analysis out this week from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Health Statistics.
Suicide disproportionately affects non-Hispanic American "Indian" and Alaska Natives, according to the CDC. A 2018 CDC report found their suicide rate was more than 3.5 times higher than those among racial and ethnic groups with the lowest rates.
Experts who study Native American suicide blame higher rates of poverty, substance abuse and unemployment as well as geographical isolation, which can make it difficult for people to access mental health care.

Update 24. 06. 2019: Ethiopian forces kill suspected mastermind of attempted coup
The Associated Press reports that prime minster Abiy Ahmed’s spokesman Nigussu Tilahun said on Monday that Brig. Gen. Asamnew Tsige was killed on the outskirts of Bahir Dar, capital of the restive northern Amhara region.
He also indicated that other plotters had been arrested.
Asamnew had been on the run since Saturday, when soldiers loyal to him attacked a meeting of the Amhara government, killing the regional governor and his adviser.
The government had deployed a heavy contingent of pro-government forces in Bahir Dar and the capital, Addis Ababa.
That attack was followed hours later by the assassination in Addis Ababa of the Ethiopian army chief and a retired army general by a bodyguard.
Speaking on state television on Saturday, Abiy said the general had been trying to prevent plotters carrying out a coup in Amhara state, one of Ethiopia’s nine federal states.

Update 23. 06. 2019: Ethiopia Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed, the former spy-chief of the country who was installed by an US-led soft coup, says country's armed forces chief of staff, General Seare Mekonnen, has been shot following unrest in the northern Amhara region. READ

Update 22. 06. 2019: Breaking: An attack against officials in Bahir Dar / Amhara started at 16:00 local time and the news had already reached Finfinnee 20 minutes later. The attack against the Chief of Staff of the Army was then conducted at 21:00 local time.

Confirmed 4 senior officials killed in an attempted coup

• General Seare Mekonnen - Army Chief

• General Gezai Abera - Senior Military General

• Ambachew Mekonnen(PhD) - President, Amhara Regional State

• Ezez Wasie - Senior adviser of the president

High time that peaceful Oromiya kicks out all these warmongers and establishes it own state independently.

Update 22. 06.2019: Despite all the horrors for the Oromo people, Ethiopia has been named as the world's most welcoming country. While it is true that especially the Oromo are very hospitable and friendly people, the governance makes sure that tourists don't venture into Oromiya or the Ogaden. Tourism under total surveillance. WATCH OUT 

The horrors just got worse for the Oromo people, who struggle for their independence but do not even receive their constitutionally guaranteed autonomy.

Oromia includes the capital Finfinne (Addis Ababa) and that poses a specific problem to the freedom struggle of the Oromo people.

By OSG - 1. July 2019

When Abiy Ahmed was brought to power in an US-led soft-coup, the trained and actively operating spy-chief sold himself to the international community and their mainstream media as an ethnic Oromo, making many believe the previous dictatorship and the crisis for the century-long oppressed Oromo people would have come with his selection finally to an end. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

The extra-judicial killing and arbitrary arrest of alleged Oromo Liberation Front (OLF) supporters since December 2018 has created a situation in Oromia very similar to that in 1991-2 when thousands of  OLF supporters were killed and  scores of thousands detained and tortured. 

The good will and support for Ethiopia from the international community helped to maintain the abusive regime of previous prime minister Meles Zenawi, then in power. The current silence about the killings and widespread imprisonment is eerily reminiscent of that time.

Many reports have been sent to the Oromia Support Group Australia (OSG) since December 2018 and this report is a summary of the information received by OSG, the Oromo organization that recently received UN special consultative status and is able to separate propaganda from facts.

This report includes information on about 163 extra-judicial killings and the arbitrary detention of at least 933 persons - all due to their alleged  support for the Oromo Liberation Front, which officially returned to Ethiopia in September 2018.

Catastrophic breaking news: 537 vultures found poisoned in dark day for Botswana conservation

It also shows that wildlife protection in Botswana can't be trusted and Elephant sport-hunting as well as culling must be banned again. Only the San and other aboriginal hunters must retain their ancient rights to hunt within their traditional culture for their sustainance.

Botswana’s Department of Wildlife and National Parks (DWNP) has announced only today that they had recently identified a poisoning site with 537 dead vultures (comprising 5 species) and also found two tawny eagles killed by the strong poison. 

The site of the mass poisoning was identified as Wildlife Management Area CT 1 in the Central District. This former trophy hunting area is close to the Botwana and Zimbabwe border, near Zimbabwe’s Hwange National Park. Three poached elephant carcasses were laced with poison, which led to the vulture deaths.

... further investigations warranted.

A Raelian linked company called Clonaid claims to have created human clones.

Human cloning is the creation of a genetically identical copy (or clone) of a human. The term is generally used to refer to artificial human cloning, which is the reproduction of human cells and tissue. It does not refer to the natural conception and delivery of identical twins. The possibility of human cloning has raised controversies. These ethical concerns have prompted several nations to pass laws regarding human cloning and its legality.

ConeAid says they are pioneers in Human Cloning and present themselves as the first human cloning company.

CLONAID, however, is a project name, while the company name under which they operate is different and is not revealed for obvious security reasons as to protect the safety of it's employees.

David Attenborough’s worried about this ocean threat - and it’s not plastic

Overfishing puts the entire ocean ecosystem at risk. Image: REUTERS/Ricardo Moraes

By Emma Charlton (*) - 18 June 2019

If the ocean was an economy, it would be the seventh largest in the world.

But instead of fostering it as a resource, humans are jeopardising its future – using it as a garbage dump and fishing it dry.

Broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough has warned our waters are facing the biggest threat in their history, with industrial overfishing putting the entire ecosystem at risk. Seafood is a key source of protein for people around the world, but nearly 90% of the world’s marine fish stocks are now fully exploited, overexploited or depleted, according to Friends of Ocean Action, a group of more than 50 global leaders, convened by the World Economic Forum and World Resources Institute.

Elephant Holocaust: Africa’s giants are losing ground faster than ever

N.B.: It also shows that the previous wildlife protection and especially the "conservation" schemes didn't work and can't be trusted. Elephant sport-hunting as well as culling must be banned again. Only the San and other aboriginal hunters must retain their ancient rights to hunt within their traditional culture for their sustainance.

Elephant populations continue to decline alarmingly due to rampant poaching, the continuation of the ivory trade and unregulated trophy hunting

In 2016, a continent-wide census revealed that in just seven years one third of Africa’s elephants had been wiped out. This was largely due to rampant poaching driven by the global desire for ivory, habitat loss as human encroachment into natural wilderness expanded, the trade in live elephants for global zoos and circuses, and the continuation of unregulated trophy hunting. Left unchecked it could be less than a decade before African elephants are extinct in the wild.

Israel’s Secretive Nuclear Facility Leaking as Watchdog Finds Israel Has Nearly 100 Nukes

Israel is one of only five nations in the world that refuse to sign the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons, an international treaty aimed at ending the proliferation of nuclear weapons and achieving global nuclear disarmament.

By Whitney Webb Whitney Webb

The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI) — an international watchdog organization focusing on conflicts, the arms trade and nuclear proliferation — released a new report on Monday that claimed that Israel has nearly a hundred nuclear warheads, more than previously thought.

The SIPRI report described Israel’s nuclear arsenal as follows: 30 gravity bombs capable of delivering nuclear weapons by fighter jets; an additional 50 warheads that can be delivered by land-based ballistic missiles; and an unknown number of nuclear-armed, sea-launched cruise missiles that would grant Israel a sea-based second-strike capability.

LONDON—On Friday morning I was in a small courtroom at Westminster Magistrates’ Court in London. Julian Assange, held in Belmarsh Prison and dressed in a pale-blue prison shirt, appeared on a video screen directly in front of me. Assange, his gray hair and beard neatly trimmed, slipped on heavy, dark-frame glasses at the start of the proceedings. He listened intently as Ben Brandon, the prosecutor, seated at a narrow wooden table, listed the crimes he allegedly had committed and called for his extradition to the United States to face charges that could result in a sentence of 175 years. The charges include the release of unredacted classified material that posed a “grave” threat to “human intelligence sources” and “the largest compromises of confidential information in the history of the United States.” After the prosecutor’s presentation, Assange’s attorney, Mark Summers, seated at the same table, called the charges “an outrageous and full-frontal assault on journalistic rights.”

Most of us who have followed the long persecution of Assange expected this moment, but it was nevertheless deeply unsettling, the opening of the final act in a Greek tragedy where the hero, cursed by fortuna, or fate, confronts the dark forces from which there is no escape.
