Rich Men in London Still Deciding Africa’s Future

http://www.counterpunch.org/2015/03/24/rich-men-in-london-still-deciding-africas-future/

Some £600 million in UK aid money courtesy of the taxpayer is helping big business increase its profits in Africa via the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition. In return for receiving aid money and corporate investment, African countries have to change their laws, making it easier for corporations to acquire farmland, control seed supplies and export produce.

Last year, Director of the Global Justice Now Nick Dearden said:

“It’s scandalous that UK aid money is being used to carve up Africa in the interests of big business. This is the exact opposite of what is needed, which is support to small-scale farmers and fairer distribution of land and resources to give African countries more control over their food systems. Africa can produce enough food to feed its people. The problem is that our food system is geared to the luxury tastes of the richest, not the needs of ordinary people. Here the British government is using aid money to make the problem even worse.”

Ethiopia, Ghana, Tanzania, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Mozambique, Nigeria, Benin, Malawi and Senegal are all involved in the New Alliance

To see this in action, we need look no further to a conference held on Monday 23 March in London, organised by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This secretive, invitation-only meeting with aid donors and big seed companies discussed a strategy to make it easier for these companies to sell patented seeds in Africa and thus increase corporate control of seeds

Note: Ethiopian statists are currently stealing Oromo land, Burkina Faso has French and US military fighting the terrorist bogeyman al-whatever-we-want-to-call-it, Nigeria has Bogus Haram.
I am contemptous of these “terror” groups as their actions progress statist/pirate interests! Furthermore with the outsourcing of murder by the Statists and corporate pirates to mercenaries it requires little imagination to envision convenient acts of terror.
This is the context within which to view the “humanitarian” Ebola and vaccinations projects ongoing in Africa. You are free to believe that the monopolistic psychotic corporate pirates and their statists legal covermen care for humanity.

Hammond + Bundy “Ranches” — Volcanoes, Gold, URANIUM + BLM / Government

Published on 4 Jan 2016
Armed standoff in Oregon due to a ‘Rancher’ and a fight with the BLM?
Deja Vu!
This just happened in Oregon a few months ago, and again in 2014 in Nevada with the Bundy “ranch”!
But there is something hidden behind these “ranchers”, and the government that I think we should all be made aware of (before you put your support behind these strangers out in the woods, or before you might support the BLM on any claim, you should know that there is serious MONEY at stake in the ground at each location — read on to find out how/why)…
Note: Farmland, mining resources, oil…we see the commonality in Oromia, Liberia, Sudan, Congo, Mali, Libya, Syria, Iraq, etc.

How does all this relate to Ebola? Corporate/statist interests override real concerns for human welfare. Psycopathic greed vs empathy and fair trading. Real health vs vaccine profiteering. Natural food vs GMO food patents. Land, water and food appropriated for corporate profit.

So called intelligent beings insulated from personal responsibility and conscience by their statist or corporate “interests” whilst destroying their habitat and each other.

We have to de-contruct the fictions we believe like money, government and corporations. It is one of the challenges…unraveling the fictions of control and dependency.

Keiser Report: Global Market For Conflict (E721)

Published on Feb 19, 2015
Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert discuss the new Blackwater world order in which corporations employ and deploy mercenaries to enforce their extrajudicial TTIP ‘rights’ over sovereign nations of non-corporate person-peasants. In the second half, Max continues his interview with Mitch Feierstein of Planet Ponzi.com about the Carney effect on the Canadian dollar and the velocity of money. Mitch also has a chart, the most important chart the audience will ever see and that is the gold price chart. He tells the Keiser Report what it means for the future of monetary policy and our economies.

WHO – Ebola Situation summary – 21 Feb 2015

The Ebola situation report tables from 11th and 18th Feb 2015 have the same data from the 8th Feb 2015.
The figures below were compiled from WHO data summaries:
http://apps.who.int/gho/data/view.ebola-sitrep.ebola-summary-20150220?lang=en

Country Case definition Cumulative cases Cases in past 21 days Cumulative deaths
Guinea Confirmed 2758 1699 (61.6%)
Probable 387 * 387
Suspected 10 *
Total 3155 2086 (66.1%)
Liberia Confirmed 3153
Probable 1888 *
Suspected 4188 *
Total 9229 4032(43.7%)
Sierra Leone Confirmed 8223 3057 (37.2%)
Probable 287 * 208??
Suspected 2645 * 158??
Total 11 155 3423 (30.7%)
Total 23 539 9541 (40.5%)

Note: ?? show no change from previous week.  The expectation is that the best practices would be applied in all 3 countries and hence see less disparity in mortality rates. Why the consistent disparity 4 months on?
Figures in (%) are mortality rates.

Is Boko Haram a CIA Covert Op to Divide and Conquer Africa?

“…US Special Operations Command (SOCOM) chief General Joseph Votel said that US commando teams must prepare for new deployments against Boko Haram and the Islamic State. ”

[T]he greatest prize for AFRICOM and its goal to plant a PAX AMERICANA in Africa would be when it succeeds in the most strategic African country, NIGERIA. This is where the raging issue of BOKO HARAM and the widely reported prediction by the United States Intelligence Council on the disintegration of Nigeria by 2015 comes into perspective…(Atheling P Reginald Mavengira, “Humanitarian Intervention” in Nigeria: Is the Boko Haram Insurgency Another CIA Covert Operation? Wikileaks, African Renaissance News, May 08, 2014)

According to the report, a Nigerian soldier in Borno state confirmed that Boko Haram attacked Gamboru Ngala in their presence but their commander asked them not to repel the attack. The soldier told BBC Hausa Service that choppers hovered in the air while the attacks were ongoing. 300 people were killed, houses and a market burnt while soldiers watched and were ordered not to render assistance to those being attacked. The soldier said that the Boko Haram insurgency will end when superior officers in the army cease to fuel it.

Boko Haram attacks town in Niger, 2nd neighbouring country invaded in days

In light of failed coup in Gambia, attempts at a coup in Venezuela, murderous farce in Ukraine, Bogus Boko Haram activity in Northern Nigeria, fabricated Gladio B enemies Al- Qaeda and ISIS. This is the background to view the AFRICOM base in Liberia under cover of Ebola

Global News

NIAMEY, Niger – A resident says Boko Haram fighters from Nigeria have attacked a border town inside the neighbouring country of Niger.

The fresh violence Friday morning marks the second neighbouring country attacked by the Islamic extremists in recent days.

On Wednesday and Thursday, Boko Haram fighters raided a town inside Cameroon, leaving nearly 100 people dead and some 500 others wounded.

Abba Hassan, a pharmacist reached in the border town of Bosso, said the militants were repelled by soldiers after an hour-long battle.

The region of Niger where the violence took place is an area where refugees already have arrived by the thousands seeking safety from Boko Haram attacks elsewhere.

Experimental Ebola vaccine shipped to Liberia

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/jan/23/ebola-vaccine-liberia-gsk-glaxosmithkline-trials

GSK hopes to enrol 30,000 people in first large-scale trials of the vaccine, which uses a type of chimpanzee cold virus

Dr Jeremy Farrar, director of the Wellcome Trust, which is funding a trial of the vaccine in UK and Mali and parallel studies of other vaccines in Geneva, Gabon, Kenya and Guinea, said: “This week we’ve heard encouraging news from west Africa, indicating that we may at last have reached a turning point in what has been the worst Ebola outbreak in history. Mali has been declared free from the disease and schools in Guinea reopened, restoring some sense of normality for those communities.
