Dear readers, I’m sorry for my long absence, but unfortunately I need to read more and more in order to publish something original and overall interesting. Today I just want to give you some informations about the swine flu, claimed to be a pandemy from the World Health Organization on 11 Jun 2009.

The situation updates is available here: we talk about data presented in the last update on 6 Jul 2009. It is easy to estimate that only the 0.45% of infected humans, unfortunately, died.

But pollution, for example, causes the 40% of human deaths: that’s a pandemy, but unfortunately nobody does anything to solve the problem. So, why is the swine flu  pandemic? Probably because it is higly infectious and contagious. It should not be a problem after all: someone will produce a vaccine, and we will be able to choose to get it or not.

There is a problem. Just another one. Unfortunately we won’t be free to choose to get it: we will have to do it otherwise we will be considered legally like terrorists. The vaccine will be mandatory. Why? writes:

The question is, what will happen to the millions of people around the world who will reject the notion that the government can order someone to stick a needle in your arm by force?

A concerned citizen called the the Arkansas State Health Department for advice on what he could do to opt out of the vaccine only to be told that mandatory vaccines were constitutional and could be enforced at gunpoint by the government if necessary.

One of his main concerns centered around the fact that the company chosen to mass produce the swine flu vaccine, Baxter International, were recently caught in a scandal after it emerged they had sent out vaccines contaminated with the H5N1 avian flu virus to 18 countries from their Austrian branch. It was only by providence that the contamination was found after the batch was first tested on ferrets in the Czech Republic, before being shipped out for injection into humans. The ferrets all died and the shocking discovery was made.

Some Czech newspapers speculated at the time that Baxter was embroiled in a conspiracy to provoke a pandemic from which it would reap billions in profits from producing the vaccine to counter a bird flu outbreak.

As we have previously covered, the last time the government ordered a mass vaccination drive in response to a swine flu outbreak, the program had to be stopped short after the shots caused over 500 cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome, a severe paralyzing nerve disease. 30 people died as a direct result of the vaccinations.

As with every flu virus, the particular strain of swine flu currently circulating the globe will inevitably mutate and change, and indeed there is evidence to suggest that this is already taking place – so how on earth could vaccines be a fix all cure unless multiple vaccines produced on an annual basis were distributed?

Ahhhh….now we’re beginning to see the full picture.

Since the corporate media is owned by the same interests that control the pharmaceutical companies, who by the way will stand to profit in the billions and even trillions if a policy of mandatory vaccination is enforced, it is no wonder why the fearmongering is intensifying as we draw closer to the timeframe that officials promised us all along would mark the return of swine flu with a vengeance – along with the mass rollout of vaccines that some people will be less enthusiastic about than others.

Wow. It doesn’t sound good, isn’t it? We report another article, about the swine flu in 1976 in USA:

Given the reports of possibility of a swine flu epidemic, it is interesting to note that last time there was a significant outbreak of a new form of swine flu in the U.S. it originated at the army base at Fort Dix, New Jersey.

Hundreds of soldiers on the base, mostly recruits, were infected without becoming ill in 1976.

President Gerald Ford immediately ordered a nationwide vaccination program.

More than 40 million people were vaccinated. However, the program was stopped short after over 500 cases of Guillain-Barre syndrome, a severe paralyzing nerve disease, were reported. 30 people died as a direct result of the vaccinations.

Here there is a video about the swine flu propaganda in the USA on 1976:

It loks like Psychological terror. Our question: Why? We don’t want to be conspired, but this story looks something like that. We want to end this post with a video, from Dr. Rima E. Laibow from Heatlh Freedom, about this events. Actually there is an campaign against forced mandatory vaccines. We consider Dr. Laibow a valid and informed scientific source about this topic: you can see her CV here.

We hope in your comments, to know what you think about the truth behind the swine flu pandemy.

Source: Brazil Activists Vandalize Monsanto Farm

SAO PAULO, Brazil — Activists opposed to genetically modified crops invaded an experimental farm owned by Monsanto Co. on Friday, destroying a greenhouse and a field of corn.

About 300 members of the Via Campesina rural farm workers group vandalized the company’s property before dawn and then left the premises, the group said in a statement.

Monsanto, a worldwide leader in genetically modified seed development, denounced the invasion and vandalism as “illegal acts.”

Differences of opinion over genetically modified crops “should be expressed through legal means and freedom of expression, not by attacks against people and individuals,” Monsanto said in a statement. The company did not immediately disclose the cost of the vandalism.

The invasion happened four days after hundreds of members of the same group invaded a corporate tree farm owned Swedish-Finnish paper maker Stora Enso near Brazil’s border with Uruguay to protest the planting of trees that are harvested to make pulp.

In that case, police fired rubber bullets to oust the demonstrators, triggering a series of protests throughout southern Brazil that they had employed excessive force.

There were no immediate reports of injuries in the invasion of the Monsanto farm about 200 kilometers (125 miles) from Sao Paulo, Brazil’s largest city.

Via Campesina said the Monsanto invasion was a protest against approval by Brazil’s government last month for two strains of genetically modified corn, one produced by U.S.-based Monsanto and the other made by Germany’s Bayer AG.

“The authorization of these strains shows, once again, that the government of (President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva) has made a political choice in favor of agribusiness and big foreign agriculture companies,” the group said.

Via Campesina says expanded use of genetically modified seeds harms Brazil’s environment and makes it difficult for poor farmers to compete with the nation’s rich landowners and agribusiness companies.

Shock Talk

by Sandy Haksi (from


As Cool World’zens know, we’ve spent the last few months working on a campaign for The Shock Doctrine: The Rise of Disaster Capitalism by celebrated author and journalist Naomi Klein. Drawing on historical examples going back thirty years, the book attacks the idea that free markets and democracy always go hand-in-hand. In fact, what emerges in the aftermath of brutal economic shock therapy looks anything but, as public interests are shoved aside to make way for corporations and their cheerleaders. The Shock Doctrine documents a collusion between Big Government and Bigger Business poised to leap into disaster-stricken areas before the smoke clears and the shock wears off, and ram through agendas that would otherwise be untenable. Drawing together environmental, labour, social justice, and anti-war themes, The Shock Doctrine has resonated far and wide and continues its own phenomenally successful rise. It has reinvigorated us with a sense of hope and purpose and returned us to familiar territory, provoking in people the same reaction as The Corporation: what can I do?

As we’ve tried to launch the Campaign 4 Corporate Harm Reduction (C4CHR), we’ve struggled with this central question. The problem with fighting corporate misrule is it’s so wide-ranging and all-encompassing that it’s hard to narrow down to just one thing. It involves making legal and regulatory changes that can be enforced at a global level. It involves changing the nature of our political process to limit corporate influence and ensure governments are truly answerable to the people. And it involves changing ourselves and our culture to find the right balance between consumption and growth, so nobody starves but we don’t destroy the world with our appetites either.

It’s intimidating, isn’t it? That’s a lot of change to pull off yet our institutions are run by people who, by and large, are insulated from the system’s harms, if not outright benefactors. In some ways, it feels like we’re already in a state of shock, not by a single cataclysmic event, but numbed by the application of a thousand little jolts. The slow and steady erosion of safety nets, regulatory controls, media diversity, and democratic accountability has seen with it the soaring rise of corporations, environmental degradation, public infrastructure decay, conflict, and inequality. It’s overwhelming and increasingly normalized, tinging our resistance with a sense of frustration and fatalistic resignation. To turn things around, we’ll need to fight entrenched power and wealth that, let’s face it, has done a bang-up job of taking care of its own interests and convincing everyone it’s progress, at that. It’s been party time at Club Privilege and nobody’s rushing to join us in the line when the bubbly keeps topping up their glasses.

And quite frankly, who wants them to? Resources, rights, sovereignty: these aren’t perks to dole out as an act of charitable largesse. It’s our economy, our society, our planet. And let’s not forget the kicker. We don’t need them but they do need us.

We’ve always had the power; all we’ve lacked is cohesion, the ability to collectively implement our will. Sure we have differences, a lot of them. But we’re also united by a common sense of justice and a need to belong, to have a purpose and feel like we contribute. We know when something’s not fair, we know when people are being excluded, and we know it stinks. And that is where we want the C4CHR to begin.

We want to be a vehicle that can harness and channel that collectivity. There are a lot of great groups doing a lot of great work. We think the strength of our network lies in its ability to connect them and focus attention so our actions are magnified to their fullest potential. The ideas are getting out there and people don’t need to be convinced the world needs changing, but do need a way to unite. We don’t pretend to have all the answers but we know it will take numbers and will. If there’s one thing we’ve taken from the success of The Shock Doctrine campaign, it’s that we don’t need a crisis to happen before we find either.
