"Deeply troubled" traditional owners in the western Pilbara have had their worst fears confirmed after Rio Tinto detonated explosives near culturally significant sites dating back more than 46,000 years.

Key points:

  • Rio Tinto has confirmed the gorge's ancient rock shelters were destroyed in blasting over the weekend
  • Permission was signed off in 2013 and was known to "impact Juukan 1 and Juukan 2 rock shelters"
  • In 2014, an archaeologist found several "staggering" artefacts believed to be the earliest use of grindstone technology in WA

A Rio Tinto spokesperson said blasting in Juukan Gorge occurred over the weekend, and on Tuesday the company confirmed its ancient rock shelters were destroyed.

UN Forced to Admit Gates-funded Vaccine is Causing Polio Outbreak in Africa

Last week, WHO and partners declared that the African continent was free of the wild polio virus, calling it “an incredible and emotional day.”

On Monday, WHO warned that the risk of further spread of the vaccine-derived polio across central Africa and the Horn of Africa was “high,” noting the large-scale population movements in the region.

This really should be one of the biggest public health scandals of the decade, but instead it’s given little attention – mainly because of the high-profile nature of the people and organisations involved.

The United Nations has been forced to admit that a major international vaccine initiative is actually causing a deadly outbreak of the very disease it was supposed to wipe-out.

Tens of millions of people displaced by the ‘War On Terror’, the greatest scam ever invented

Caitlin Johnstone: Tens of millions of people displaced by the ‘War On Terror’, the greatest scam ever inventedBy Caitlin Johnstone - 09. September 2020

A new report from Brown University’s Costs of War project has found that at least 37 million people have been displaced as a result of America’s so-called “war on terror” since 9/11.

That is a conservative estimate of a number that may actually be somewhere between 48 million to 59 million.

That number, “at least 37 million”, happens by pure coincidence to be the exact same number of Americans reported to suffer from food insecurity because their government spends their wealth and resources killing and displacing people overseas.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange awared with the Solidarity prize by the Russian Union of Journalists      "The International Day of Journalists' Solidarity is marked worldwide on September 8. Our colleague, a journalist, sacrificed his whole life to fight for truth and freedom of speech. We had no doubts about who should receive this prize. We decided that it should go to Julian Assange, a true fighter for the freedom of speech," the union’s head Vladimir Solovyev told TASS on Tuesday.

Clayton Brascoupé has farmed in the red-brown foothills of New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains for more than 45 years.

How Indigenous land rights could help save the Brazilian Amazon from deforestation

A recent study lends support to what many Indigenous people have often said: Lands held by Indigenous people are better protected from environmental destruction than other areas of the forest.

When Daiara Tukano was growing up, she learned from her family what it meant to care for the natural world and look after the rich ecology of Indigenous peoples’ traditional lands.

“Indigenous peoples, in a general way, know that humankind is not the center of the universe. We learn with nature around us because we are a part of nature,” said Tukano, a human rights researcher who belongs to the Tukano people of Northern Brazil. 

“Some people say Indigenous land isn't productive. For us, it’s more than a sanctuary. It is really rich. And the way of continuing to be rich, as a territory, is being the source of an enormous diversity. And that’s not just biodiversity, but cultural diversity as well.”

The Brazilian Amazon is constantly under threat from outside invasions. The country is seeing one of its worst years in memory when it comes to losing forests due to fires and illegal deforestation.

Saudi Savagery: Kingdom Beheads 16-Year-Old For Sending Whatsapp Message

Psychopath with a deadly smile: Mohammad bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, known colloquially as MbS, must be stopped on all of his fronts, shunned internatioally and be brought to justice. The cruelties committed by the House of Saud and their rule must end.

The controversy over Saudi Crown Prince MbS's alleged orchestration of the murder of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi has largely subsided since the government insider-turned-critic walked into the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul in early October and never walked out. But a new controversy is brewing over one of the kingdom's most controversial practices: Its mass-beheadings of men convicted of 'terrorism' charges, typically members of the Shiite minority living in the eastern part of the kingdom.

Saudi Arabia has long practiced execution by beheading. But this year, the mass extermination of 37 of mostly Shiite men this week provoked condemnation from the UN and other human rights organizations, as several teenage boys were executed for crimes as seemingly petty a sending Whatsapp messages about government demonstrations.

Editor’s note: Funny how the human collective mind works. If Assange was being deported to the US in 2012 there would have been an uprising — everyone understood what this was about back then. But put a decade of distance, and of corporate media psy ops, between the events and it’s a collective shrug.

After the visit, Moris said that he looked to be in “a lot of pain.”

Fabricating a Pandemic – Who Could Organize It and Why

By Gregory Sinaisky - 06. September 2020

It is difficult not to notice something contrived in the currently announced “pandemic” of the Novel Covid-19 virus. Media coverage of this event has all the hallmarks of a coordinated hysterical campaign, namely:

  • the use of emotions instead of numbers and logic (for example videos showing allegedly overflowing hospitals and morgues, which can easily be staged or occur due to a natural situation unrelated to Covid-19)
  • the refusal to even mention the most obvious counter-arguments (for example, the media will never compare the number of deaths caused by flu in recent years with Covid-19 deaths)
  • and the complete censorship of all opinions that disagree with the mainstream media narrative, even those that come from recognised experts.

UPDATE 02. September 2020: The Carbon Lottery: Europe blind to potentially huge Brazilian beef carbon footprints

Special Report: One Brazilian farmer tried – and failed – to ranch more responsibly in the Amazon

By Stephen Eisenhammer - 28. August 2020

TAILANDIA, Brazil (Reuters) - Mauro Lucio Costa wanted to do the right thing for the world’s largest rainforest.

For decades, the third-generation rancher in northern Brazil watched guiltily as his industry, feeding soaring global appetite for beef, razed ever more jungle. So, gradually he experimented with grasses and grazing techniques that today make his ranch one of the most efficient in Brazil. Costa became a model for those who believe beef can be raised profitably and sustainably – even in the Amazon.

As a so-called “finishing farm,” Costa’s ranch is the last stop cattle make in a chain that begins with breeders and often includes stays on a progression of other properties before animals are grown and ready for slaughter.

Eager to do more – and push others in the industry toward sustainability, too – Costa in 2017 decided to buy cattle only from breeders who could prove they weren’t ranching illegally cleared land. He asked a consultant to check suppliers’ farms for deforestation using satellite maps and a government list of embargoed properties.

What do HONEST scientists say about COVID-19?

honest scientistBy SWC - 01. September 2020

Are you listening to the right scientists?

There are two types of scientists: those that are bought by Big Pharma... and those that are not. The ones who serve financial and political purposes are the ones who get the largest platforms in the media and in governments. They will say anything in order to cash in millions of dollars.

The ones who are speaking the true scientific facts, are often silenced or simply ignored.

That's why I have listed the true scientific findings of these honest experts concerning Covid-19 on this page. Since the mass media is owned by Big Pharma they will never tell you these facts and will even hide them from you at all costs.

Enjoy this liberating truth and share it wherever you can...

Monsanto pays out $10mn as it admits spraying BANNED toxic pesticide on Hawaii crops

By RT - 22. November 2019

Embattled biotech company Monsanto will pay a hefty fine for stockpiling over 72kg of highly dangerous pesticide and spraying it on “research crops,” even after it was banned by the US government.

Monsanto acknowledged that it used methyl parathion, the active ingredient in Penncap-M, on corn seed and other crops on the Hawaii island of Maui back in 2014, knowing that it was prohibited by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) the previous year.

The US Justice Department, which investigated the case, said that over 72kg (160lbs) of the chemical – fatal if inhaled and hazardous if swallowed – was illegally stored at a company facility, endangering “the environment, surrounding communities and Monsanto workers.”

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia—Amid fears that Beijing is taking control of various sectors of Africa’s economy, civil society organizations in Africa have expressed unhappiness with development projects implemented by Chinese investors, which they say don’t benefit local people.

In the Ethiopian capital, Addis Ababa, just like in many major cities in Africa, there are various Chinese investment projects at different stages of implementation. High-rise buildings under construction by the Chinese can be seen in most parts of the city.

The Africa Union Conference Center and Office Complex (AUCC), funded and constructed by the Chinese government at a cost of $200 million, stands imposingly in Addis Ababa, dwarfing nearby slums and other commercial buildings.
