WHO Demands Apology For Bin Laden Assassination

Archibald Dutshown

An expert panel of the World Health Organisation on Sunday has filed a formal request to Unitednations to call upon Unitedstates to apologise for the assassination of Osama Bin Laden to all concerned parties involved. The document says that the alleged danger by the Islamic underground preacher was vastly exaggerated as to mislead unaware soldiers into slaughtering inside witnesses and destroying inconvenient evidence of Unitedstates war crimes.

Mohamed Saidler

In contact to a leaking platform, an unnamed Egyptian official has provided new information on the case of the passenger aircraft that went missing over the Mediterranean. Due to the rapid loss in mid flight height monitored in the incident, investigators had thought of a bomb attack as the most likely cause of the crash. But now an inside view of Cairo‘s vast airline conglomerate indicates gross management failures as an even more realistic scenario.

El fin de la "maldición" del rentismo petrolero

Guayú De Falkón

......con el cuento chino del fin de la “maldición” del rentismo petrolero, evaden y desvían su responsabilidad ética, moral, política, administrativa y legal en la profunda crisis económica que está sumido el país producto del despilfarro, malversación, saqueo, fraude y estafa de una gigantesca cordillera montañosa de dólares, los cuales utilizados e invertidos con responsabilidad y ética, habrían convertido a Venezuela en la nueva Suiza por todo el siglo XXI.

No y no ¡No nos dejemos engañar..! la renta petrolera no es ninguna maldición. Malditos son todos aquellos y aquellas que desde hace casi 100 años se la han robado a mansalva y la han exportado, acumulado y “sembrado” en paraísos fiscales, bancos e inversiones en EE.UU. y Europa.

“From Big Mountain to Palestine, relocation is genocide!” sings Klee Benally, Diné activist, filmmaker and former member of the indigenous punk band Blackfire, in his song 'An Act of Liberation.'

Benally refers to two of numerous politically and economically motivated displacements of people in recent memory. For one, the Nabka, 700,000 Palestinians were forced to leave their villages in 1948 to make way for the creation of the state of Israel.

The other was the topic of a screening and discussion of the 1985 documentary film Broken Rainbow, hosted by the San Diego Independent Media Center at the Metate Infoshop on January 29, as part of Enero Zapatista. The film details the historical context, events leading up to, and human and environmental impact of the forced relocation of 14,000 Diné people from the Black Mesa area, beginning in 1974, to permit expansion of the operations of Peabody Coal. --Read More--

sdindymedia volunteer

Early this morning, March 3, 2016, armed individuals forcibly entered and assassinated Honduran activist Berta Cáceres, founder of COPINH, in her home in La Esperanza, department of Intibucá in southwestern Honduras.

Our friend and colleague Gustavo Castro Soto was injured during the attack. Gustavo is Mexican and a member of the organization Otros Mundos Chiapas/Friends of the Earth-Mexico, the Mexican Network of Mining-Affected Peoples and the Mesoamerican Movement against the Extractive Mining Model (M4). Gustavo survived the attack and has become a key actor in the investigation into the murder of our friend Berta.

In the context of the terrible assassination of the much loved Berta Cáceres, we call on the government of Honduras to pay immediate attention, to intervene, and to follow up on this devastating moment for the Honduran people. We also call for all legal and political measures possible to guarantee the immediate protection of our friend and colleague Gustavo Castro so that, once he has given his testimony to the Honduran state, he can safely return to Mexico. --Read More (english)-- | --Read More (español)--
