Bullying anyone? Join the dots…

The Wanderlust Misfit


The above is a link to the ABC News article ‘U.S. Wanted to Provoke War with Cuba’. It’s from May, 2001.
Frankly, I’m surprised ABC ever ran the story, and more surprised that it’s still up. From the second paragraph:
“Code named Operation Northwoods, the plans reportedly included the possible assassination of Cuban émigrés, sinking boats of Cuban refugees on the high seas, hijacking planes, blowing up a U.S. ship, and even orchestrating violent terrorism in U.S. cities.”

Here is a PDF of Operation Northwoods: http://www.gwu.edu/~nsarchiv/news/20010430/northwoods.pdf

Beginning on Page 7 is an outline of potential false-flag attacks mitigated by U.S. forces against the United States — attacks to be carried out by our government which they would then blame on Cuba to solidify public support for an invasion of Cuba. The Department of Justice, which passed this over to the Kennedy Administration who turned it down, recommended bombing Guantanamo…

NATO to Survey Patriot Missile Sites in Turkey

ANKARA: NATO officials will start surveying sites along the Turkey-Syria border on Tuesday for possible deployment of Patriot air defense systems, the Turkish General Staff said in a statement.

The NATO delegation includes 30 experts from the United States, Germany and the Netherlands, all of whom have Patriots in their arsenals.

“The regions the Patriot systems would be deployed to and the number of foreign personnel that will be assigned to them will be be based on the NATO delegation’s site-survey,” the statement said.

Turkey, a NATO member, has requested the deployment of Patriot missiles on its territory, saying the anti-missile system is necessary to protect its 900-km border with conflict-torn Syria.

Among the most possible sites for the Patriot deployment are Diyarbakir, Urfa and Malatya in southeastern Turkey. Hurriyet said up to 300…

Tasmania’s forest negotiations have collapsed! Public pressure is now more urgent than ever!

If we can resist bullying here through social media and protest action then our children and their children have hope also…

T h e O b s e r v e r T r e e

On this day last year, myself and two other conservationists scaled up the side of the Sydney Opera House and unfurled a banner from the top of one of Australia’s most iconic structure. The banner read “No Harvey Norman No- Stop selling Aussie forest destruction.” It was part of a global day of action targeting the company for selling furniture made from the destruction of native forests around Australia, including in Tasmania. There were over 40 actions around the world.

A year later and Harvey Norman are still selling timber products that were once precious ecosystems. A year later and we continue to campaign for the protection of those ecosystems. Today is a good day to remember the role that retail outlets have in the cycle of destruction. Today is a good day to remind those companies that people do not want to buy forest destruction.

For those who haven’t seen it, check out this…
