… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Guyana deals with aftermath of deadly protests

BBC News, 30 September 2012

Several buildings were destroyed during the electricity protests

Related Stories 

The fatal shooting by police of three people at a protest over electricity prices in Guyana has reopened historical divisions in the South American nation, reports the BBC's Nick Davis in Georgetown.

James Rutherford holds up an X-ray of the shotgun pellet that is still in his body.

"If they [the police] or the government had talked to people, it wouldn't have happened; it wasn't called for," he says.

An aluminium mine in the town of Linden was at the heart of the protest that ended in tragedy on 18 July. 

Injuries from the July shooting are still
being dealt with
There is still plenty of the aluminium ore but with low global demand, the role of mining in the community has declined massively and unemployment is rife.

In the past, the mining operation had its own generators producing surplus energy and a deal was made to sell electricity to locals.

It was supplied at a reduced rate for most and given free to pensioners, as compensation to the community for having a mine on its doorstep.

Over the years, the plant has gone from private ownership to being government-controlled, back to being privately run and has changed hands a number of times - but electricity remained cheap as prices across the country in other poor communities rose.

When the government announced earlier this year that it was scrapping the electricity subsidy, it alarmed everyone in the community.

The national motto of Guyana is One People, One Nation, One Destiny, but this is clearly a nation divided.

The two largest ethnic groups are of South Asian and African descent. The country's politics are split along racial lines with many Indo-Guyanese supporting the governing People's Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C), the black community supporting the coalition opposition - A Partnership for Local Unity (APNU) - and the Amerindians holding the balance of power.

'People's parliament'

Christopher Ram, an accountant and newspaper columnist with the Stabroek News who looked into the price rises, said scrapping the electricity subsidy would have meant price hikes of between 300% and 800%.

The average residential bill in Guyana is around $40 (£24) a month but with more than 70% of Lindeners out of work and those employed making an average of about $200 a month, people in the town said they couldn't pay and took to the streets.

Linden, with its population mostly from the black community, is the gateway to Guyana's vast and resource-rich interior. When demonstrators blocked the bridge that connects it to the capital Georgetown, that - they say - is when police fired tear gas and shotgun pellets into the crowd. 

People are submitting written evidence
at the "people's parliament"
"I'm going to be a pensioner soon, that's why we protested because we can't afford it. I'd be dead if I had to pay that," said one woman.

At a store in town known as the "people's parliament", people were rowdy as they recollected the events back in July.

The shop is more like a community centre, as they waited to give written evidence to the Commission of Inquiry into the killings.

Despite having an office in town, people have been coming to have their testimony written down by APNU supporters, because they say they trust them more.

Jahmake Brummell says he was having a drink when a round hit him.

"We heard the sound and then saw the tear gas so we started running," he said.

"I felt my leg go numb; it felt like it was burning. People were trying to help and the police were shouting: 'Let him die there.'"

Local people angered by the deaths blockaded the town in further protests that lasted a month, almost completely cutting off the south of the country. Vital supplies were unable to get to some Amerindian communities and mining camps in the rainforests.

Nation divided

"The government should have come and sat with people before they made decisions which impacted them politically, economically and socially, that's what led to this situation," said Sharma Solomon, chairman of the regional government.

A team including legal experts from across the Caribbean is part of the Commission of Inquiry looking into the deaths. The electricity price rises and the economic situation in Linden will also be investigated. 

The Commission of Inquiry is looking
into all aspects of the case
There are allegations that the situation was whipped up by political parties with the blockades designed to force the government to cut electricity prices and the violence a warning against voting for the opposition.

"There was a frightening of the Indian population over the lawlessness in Linden," said Dr Rupert Roopnaraine, deputy chairman of the APNU.

"They also told the Amerindians that the reason they didn't have gasoline and food was because these people in Linden - read black people - were in effect making their lives miserable."

But the government is adamant that there was no discrimination at the heart of anything it has done.

"We have other parts of the country that are asking us 'why should Linden pay a different rate of electricity to us when the state guarantees equal treatment to all'," said the country's Attorney General Anil Nandlall.

"It's a fallacy that Linden has been discriminated against."

The official inquiry is set to last six weeks. At the Supreme Court in Georgetown, the jurists have started looking over the evidence.

Some people believe the investigation will have lasting benefits.

"The people of Linden entered into negotiations with the government; they got a negotiated settlement to some of their main concerns," said Nigel Hughes from the opposition Alliance for Change (AFC).

"I think in terms of independence and autonomy it's a significant step forward for the region. I'm hopeful this will blossom into an example for the rest of the country to follow."

In Linden the sound of the streets reflected its Caribbean links as reggae could be heard up and down the main street.

There were lots of people on the street, clearly with not much to do.

"It's not that we don't want to pay our bills; we just don't know where we'll get the money," said a female security guard as she kept an eye on the people milling around.

Rival Bolivia miners end tin and zinc dispute

BBC News, 30 September 2012

Protests by miners have blocked roads
leading to Bolivia's main city, La Paz
Rival miners' groups in Bolivia have signed a deal with the government to end a dispute over control of rich tin and zinc deposits.

The dispute centred around the Colquiri mine, once operated by Swiss company Glencore, which was expropriated by the government in June.

Groups of public and private sector miners have clashed over who should run the mine ever since.

Earlier this month, the clashes escalated, leaving one protester dead.

The miner died when rival groups threw dynamite charges at each other in street battles in the centre of La Paz.

Months of marches and protests over the mine have paralysed parts of Bolivia for days at a time, cutting off access routes to the seat of the government.

Bolivia's Government Minister, Carlos Romero, said he was pleased that the two groups had finally reached a compromise.

"We are signing an agreement that I think is historic, because it's ending one of the most significant and complicated conflicts that we've had to deal with in the last few years," he said.

The Rosario vein at the Colquiri mine, located some 160km (100 miles) south of La Paz, will now be split into seven smaller sections, and miners from both sides will be able to exploit them for minerals.

Thousands are employed by the mining sector in Bolivia and the country depends heavily on exporting natural resources.

In Chávez's revolutionary heartland the passion burns, but fear of defeat grows

With just one week to go before elections, Jonathan Watts and Virginia Lopez find the radical leader's backers anxious that support for his dynamic young opponent is growing

Venezuela is gearing up for its closest presidential poll in more than a decade. The revolutionary incumbent, Hugo Chávez, is battling cancer and fighting for his political life. A telegenic young challenger from the right, Henrique Capriles, is gaining ground. With one week left, one voter – the hatmaker of Caracas – weighs up the options.

For half a century Juan Torres has provided hats for Venezuela's heads of state. Earning little more than the minimum wage, he shaped the panama owned by the "father of democracy", Rómulo Betancourt, when he took power in 1958, the borsalino of the centrist leader Jóvito Villalba, and the stetson donned by Luis Herrera Campíns, who presided over an era of economic decline in the early 1980s.

Now he is watching with a professional eye as a nation decides whether the revolutionary red beret that has been the trademark of Chávez, 58, during his 14 years in power will be replaced by the baseball cap of Capriles.

With just a week until polling day, most forecasters predict a narrow victory of between three and five points for the incumbent. But the gap has been closing, with many voters undecided and the huge turnouts for opposition rallies providing more momentum for Capriles, who is 40, than many analysts would have believed possible.

In this politically polarised nation, there is no doubt which side of the divide Torres is from. His neighbourhood is 23 de Enero, a bastion of Chávez supporters. In next week's poll, the president will cast his vote alongside local residents here in the Manuel Pelacios Fajardo school. Electoral banners and graffiti are everywhere – all in favour of the incumbent: the words "100% Chávez" are daubed on countless car windows. "Chávez: Heart of the Fatherland" read the posters that are fixed to every lamppost.

Although this is one of the president's strongholds, there is ambivalence: a mix of appreciation, frustration and anxiety that reflects not only many of the reasons why Chávez has held on to power but also why the vote on 7 October is likely to be closer than any other since he first won in 1998.

Torres and his son, Jonás, escort us through the neighbourhood, pointing out some of the benefits they say Chávez has brought to local people during that time: a clinic staffed by Cuban doctors, a public bus service and a new school where the walls have already been painted with a slogan, "Socialist Anti-Imperialist Commune".

Local collectives have been given considerable power, including the authority to initiate projects and bid for central government funds. Memphis Paris, the representative of a group of 5,200 residents called Three Roots Collective, said his group had been given money to improve plumbing in the tower blocks and a playground with exercise machines overlooking the valley.

At first glance the improvements look modest at best, particularly given that Venezuela is one of the world's three biggest oil producers and Chávez's presidency has been marked by a surge in the price of crude from $9 (£5.50) a barrel to more than $100 today. The country's state-run oil company, Petróleos de Venezuela (PDVSA), has generated revenues of more than $980bn.

Critics say Chávez has squandered this income with programmes aimed at buying off the electorate, while supporters say the money has been used for a long-overdue redistribution of income.

The government has spent almost $300bn on social programmes that aim to improve literacy, high school education, accommodation for the homeless, and to provide subsidies for groceries or affordable home appliances. Partly as a result, poverty levels have decreased. Unemployment has fallen from 13% in 1999 to just over 8%. Infant mortality has almost halved.

Torres's shop is in a central district of Caracas that the government has made the flagship of efforts to revitalise the city. Public squares are being cleared for music concerts, dilapidated theatres and buildings are being renovated. The British architect Richard Rogers, who was introduced to Chávez officials by Ken Livingstone, has designed a new central bus terminal.

But many voters complain that many ideas are never implemented because of corruption and inefficiency. Oil production has fallen due to poor maintenance and weak investment, the road system is dire, crime is rampant and social campaigns have petered out.

Torres says the government earmarked funds to improve the facades on buildings in his neighbourhood, but the money never reached the local community. "I think Chávez has good ideas, but the people around him have failed to carry them out. I'm disappointed. They are serving their own interests, not the revolution," he says.

Venezuela's economy has grown on average by 2.8% between 1999 and 2011. It's been outperformed by neighbouring Colombia, Brazil and Chile, none of which have enjoyed the windfall from oil. Inflation for 1999-2010 grew 961%, more than 10 times the average of the other seven larger economies in Latin America.

An overdependence on oil exports and failed currency controls have created a huge black market for dollars. Torres stopped making hats himself a couple of years ago because it was cheaper to import and sell them. He earns the minimum wage, plus commission. "Business has been bad this year. I hope it settles after the election," he says. "What we need is economic change."

The lack of dynamism is evident. Most of the buildings and vehicles in his neighbourhood look dilapidated. The national murder rate has more than doubled in the last 10 years, making Venezuela one of the three most dangerous countries in the world, with almost 20,000 people killed each year. Locals in the 23 de Enero district say that, on an average weekend, there are between five and 10 homicides. The police are not in control here.

The revolution began in 23 de Enero long before the comandante came to power. In his youth, Torres was a member of the urban guerrilla movement. "Here's where we used to throw molotov cocktails," he says as we walk through his district.

Today a red-starred flag on the lamppost in the main square of his neighbourhood proclaims this as the territory of the GHPP urban guerrilla group. One wall is daubed with a mural of the Virgin Mary holding an AK-47. Another has a portrait of Che Guevara and a declaration, "We will never go back to the past. Onward with the revolution."

Torres's son, Jonás, is a passionate Chávez supporter. "Things have improved. I have read about how it was before and I have heard from my mother about the social injustice and indiscriminate violence by the police. Chávez is the best chance for change," he says.

Nevertheless, for the first time in any presidential election since Chávez came to power, the outcome is in doubt. After a year of battling cancer, Chávez has been uncharacteristically subdued for much of the campaign, while Henrique Capriles has jetted back and forth across the country, drawing vast crowds wherever he goes.

Capriles is the first opposition candidate to be selected in a primary vote and has benefited from youthful good looks and a reputation as a political winner. Although many of his supporters hail from the neoliberal right, he has successfully eaten into Chávez's traditional vote by promising to continue many of his social policies and implement them more effectively.

The narrowing gap in the polls has prompted rumours of unrest in Chávez strongholds if the outcome is disputed. The president's aides insist they are ready to accept the choice of the electorate, but this has not ended suspicion on the streets. "The armed guerrillas have always existed. If it is a tight result and they feel cheated, they'll go out and fight for the comandante," says Torres.

Torres predicts Chávez will win by a close margin, but is reluctant to say outright who he will vote for. "If the opposition get in, I don't know what will happen. But I'm not afraid of them. I'm not afraid of anyone."

Mexico arrests senior leader of Zetas cartel

Jakarta Globe, September 27, 2012

Mexico's navy says it has arrested a senior leader in the Zetas drug cartel,
Ivan Velazquez Caballero, aka "Z-50"...

Mexico says it has arrested a senior leader in the Zetas drug cartel, potentially dealing a major blow to one of the country's most powerful and violent drug gangs.

"A person who is presumed to be and who says he is Ivan Velazquez Caballero, aka "Z-50"... one of the main leaders of the Zetas cartel, has been captured in San Luis Potosi state" in northern Mexico, the navy said in a brief statement late Wednesday.

It said it would provide more information about the arrest on Thursday.

Velazquez Caballero was on a list of Mexico's most wanted drug traffickers, with an offer of some $2.3 million for information leading to his capture.

Much of northern and eastern Mexico is in the clutches of the Zetas cartel, which was founded by former Mexican special forces soldiers who went rogue and are known for decapitating and dismembering their enemies.

The Zetas were originally hired as enforcers for the Gulf Cartel, but turned on their employers and have taken over their lucrative turf, which includes key land routes to smuggle drugs across Central America and into the United States.

Mexico has been in the grip of a massive crime wave in recent years, with some 60,000 people reportedly killed in drug-related violence since the launch of a military crackdown against the cartels in 2006.

Third Reich - Operation UFO (Nazi Base In Antarctica) Complete Documentary






For the first time, the legendary 2006 Russian documentary 'Third Reich - Operation UFO' in its entirety, fully translated into English and available for free viewing. Many thanks to Irina Du Toit for the translation and the saucer people for the subtitles.

The film explores the historical mysteries and rumours of a Nazi secret base in Antarctica, the 1947 flying saucer attack on Admiral Byrd's ill-fated 'Operation Highjump' expedition and the occult origins of Third Reich anti-gravity engines, flying discs and ancient Atlantean technologies viewed through the lens of perhaps the three most mysterious twentieth century German organisations of all: the 'Thule Society, 'Vril Society' and the 'Ahnenerbe'

One of the core themes of the film is the alleged existence of 'Base 211', the legendary underground Nazi base in the Antarctica. Drawing upon the pre-war Nazi interest in Antarctica and the creation of 'New Swabia'; the testimony of German U-Boat submarine commanders and the alleged disappearance of thousands of Nazi scientists and engineers at the end of the war, personnel that cannot be accounted for by the Vatican and Odessa 'rat lines' or American 'Operation Paperclip' activities. In addition, the film analyses the actual geo-physical possibilities of an underground base in Antarctica.

The other core theme is the alleged existence of a Nazi flying saucer program and the many evidential strands that this area generates. From the supposed channeling of extraterrestrial engineering schematics by members of the German occult group 'Thule Society' in the early part of the twentieth century to the 'implosion engine' of Viktor Schauberger and its possible appropriation by the Third Reich.

Bringing us to the the latter part of the twentieth century the documentary illustrates the many sightings of unknown crafts around the Antartic region and the theoretical basis for polar wormholes as entrance and exit points for visiting extraterrestrial spaceships and the possible involvement of HAARP, as well as asking why nearly all American Antarctic bases seem to be populated by agents of the National Security Agency and CIA.

Like the study of any phenomena and/or events that exist at the edges of consensus reality, occupy imaginal realms and are subject to historical revisionism; the interface of myth and reality is a shifting mosaic of fact, speculation, disinformation and fantasy, or to use the phrase of head CIA counter-intelligence spook, James Jesus Angleton, we have entered a "wilderness of mirrors".

Certainly there are elements in the documentary that give cause for concern such as the alleged "Special Bureau 13", the Nazi secret flying saucer research group and its similarity to the top secret government agency in the early eighties role playing game "Bureau 13: Stalking the Night Fantastic " (though equally the RPG title could be an insider homage to this secret Nazi organisation). Likewise, there is the lack of information on the existence of the US Navy destroyer 'Murdoch' in the testimony recounted by pilot 'John Sireson' in his description of the flying saucer attack on Admiral Byrd's fleet (testimony taken from an interview by the late pioneering American researcher Leonard Stringfield).

Equally, the testimony of Admiral Byrd that flying saucers attacked the 'Operation Highjump' fleet is of historical record as is his testimony to Congress of enemies that have the ability to fly "pole to pole". Likewise, the creation of 'New Swabia' is as much a historical fact as the 'impossible' existence of the 'Piri Reis' map.

What sets this documentary apart from most others of its kind is the inclusion of high ranking Russian scientists and military personnel and their testimony should not be discounted.

As the great American anti-fascist researcher Dave Emory says of many elements of deep politics: "its food for thought and grounds for further research".

Exopolitics UK and 'The Saucer People' are looking for other non-English UFO/alien related videos to help translate and subtitle, we have dozens of Russian documentaries waiting to be translated into English. If you speak Russian and are interested in translating any of this material please get in touch.

Likewise, if your country of origin has produced any UFO/alien documentaries and are interested in creating English translations to be subtitled please contact us.

It took a lot of hard work to make the translation of this documentary into English and create the subtitles and we would like to dedicate our work to the late American researcher Wendelle Stevens who is quoted in the film, In our opinion, Wendelle, who sadly died in 2011 was one of the few genuine professional researchers in the UFO community who like Linda Moulton Howe, actually went and spoke to the subjects and witnesses and researched cases first-hand.

Uruguay poised to legalize abortion

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (AP) — Uruguay's congress appeared ready on Tuesday to legalize abortion, a groundbreaking move in Latin America, where no country save Cuba has made abortions accessible to all women during the first trimester of pregnancy.

Compromises made to secure votes disappointed both sides of the abortion divide, which gathered in protest. Once it gets through Uruguay's lower house, the measure would go back to the Senate for approval of changes, but President Jose Mujica has said he will allow it to become law.

The measure would give women the right to a legal abortion during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, and decriminalize later-term abortions when the mother's life is at risk or when the fetus is so deformed that it wouldn't survive after birth. In cases of rape, abortions would be legal during the first 14 weeks.

The goal is to reduce the number of illegal abortions in Uruguay, Congressman Ivan Posada of the center-left Independent Party told his fellow lawmakers Tuesday. Posada wrote the measure and is expected to provide a key 50th vote against the opposition of 49 other lawmakers.

"They talk of 30,000 a year, a hypothetical number, but whatever the number is, it's quite dramatic for a country where 47,000 children are born each year," Posada explained earlier in an Associated Press interview.

A poll this month showed 52 percent of Uruguayans would vote to legalize abortion if the question were put to the people, while 34 percent would vote against it. The survey of 802 people nationwide by the CIFRA consulting firm had a 3.4 percentage point margin of error.

Compromises include requiring women seeking abortions to justify their request before a panel of at least three professionals — a gynecologist, psychologist and social worker — and listen to advice about alternatives including adoption and support services if should she decide to keep the baby.

Then, she must wait five more days "to reflect" on the consequences before the procedure.

"It's important that the woman who decides to have an abortion attend this meeting where she will be informed, where they'll explain all the options including alternatives that she is free to choose from," Posada told the AP.

The review panel should obtain the father's point of view, but only if the woman agrees. Women under 18 must show parental consent, but they can seek approval from a judge instead if they're unwilling or unable to involve their parents in the decision.

The measure also allows entire private health care institutions, as well as individual health care providers, to decline to perform abortions.

Such requirements raised objections from Amnesty International and other groups, which say layers of bureaucracy will create barriers and delay abortions until more than 12 weeks have passed, thus forcing women and health care providers into criminal territory.

"This is not the law for which we fought for more than 25 years," complained Marta Agunin, who directs Women and Health, a non-governmental organization in Uruguay.

Also opposed are Uruguay's Catholic and evangelical institutions, which along with public hospitals provide much of the available health care in Uruguay.

A statement from Uruguay's Catholic University says it makes no sense to punish a woman for killing a fetus that is 12 weeks and 1 day old, but to decriminalize abortions before then. Conservatives also object to the removal of a proposal to require the father's consent before any abortion.

Cuba, which decriminalizes abortions in the first 10 weeks of pregnancy, is the only country in Latin America where legal abortion is common. Argentina and Colombia allow it only in cases of rape or when the mother's life is endangered. Colombia also allows it when there is proof of fetal malformation. Mexico City has legalized first-trimester abortions, but there are restrictions in most other parts of the country.

Many countries ban abortions under any conditions.

Uruguay's lawmakers have no desire to make their country a destination for women from other countries seeking abortions. The measure says only Uruguayan citizens and women who can prove at least one year's residency can apply. "This is a solution for those who live here, not that Uruguay becomes a place that attracts people from other countries for this procedure," Posada told the AP.

Opposition Deputy Javier Garcia of the center-right National Party accused lawmakers of treating living embryos as if they were "disposable," which he equated with murder.

The margin for the law was razor-thin on Tuesday after Deputy Andres Lima of the ruling Broad Front coalition said he would refuse to vote. With Posada joining the coalition, the measure appeared headed for passage by a 50-49 vote margin.

Dr. Marie Gonzalez, bioethicist at the University of the Republic, called the measure "evil" and vowed to work to persuade her fellow gynecologists to refuse to perform the procedure if it becomes law.

"... I want to define life for you - not biological life, but spiritual life. So for all those intellectuals, just hold on, for many won't like this. Spiritual life, as measured by Spirit, is when a Human has free choice. When is that? It's when they take their first breath. Not in utero. There will be those who will say, "That's wrong, that's wrong. The soul in the woman's body is alive!" Just wait. I'm talking about spiritually. That which Spirit sees, and it's when you come from the other side of the veil and take your first breath.

A child with the mother has no free choice. That child is linked to the choice of the mother until it is born. It is, indeed, a soul in preparation for free choice, and there are many attributes that are spiritual that we have discussed before about how that soul reacts. But now I'm discussing life with polarity [duality], free choice.

But let's discuss that "child inside" for a moment, for there is a process I want you to know about. I want to talk about 240 days into the pregnancy. At about that time, the child has perfect DNA. It hasn't taken its first breath. The DNA hasn't measured the energy of the planet yet, since it is contained. Did you realize that? Inside the womb is a perfect child. The child's DNA has all the attributes of the Akash and also the parent, but it's different in a way you have not been told. The DNA is 100% as designed.

The quantum instructions within the DNA are all talking to the biology of the child,, getting ready for the first breath. ..."

Antonio Trejo, Honduras rights lawyer, killed at wedding

BBC News, 23 September 2012

"No more peasant murders in the Aguan region," reads the banner
held by protesters in Honduras.

A human rights group in Honduras says a prominent lawyer who represented peasants in disputes with large land owners has been killed.

Antonio Trejo was shot dead by unknown gunmen after walking outside the church, where he was attending a wedding, to answer a phone call.

Mr Trejo represented lands rights groups in the Bajo Aguan, a fertile palm-oil-producing region.

Dozens of people have been killed in land conflicts there in recent years.

A statement by the Peasants Movement of the Valley of Bajo Aguan, known by its Spanish acronym, Marca, says he was shot five times outside a church in Tocontin, in the outskirts of the capital, Tegucigalpa.

He was taken to a nearby hospital but died of his wounds.

Biofuels

Human rights groups have called on the Central American government to investigate the deaths of dozens of peasants and campaigners in the Bajo Aguan area, in Honduras' northern Colon department.

"A long-simmering land conflict erupted in May 2011 when peasants occupied land being cultivated by large privately owned agricultural enterprises," says the pressure group Human Rights Watch in a report.

"Many victims were members of peasant associations who were allegedly gunned down by security guards working for the enterprises."

The palm oil produced in the area is used mostly to make biofuels for vehicles.

President Porfirio Lobo's government says criminal gangs, who claim to be peasants, are to be blamed for many of the conflicts in the region.

Antonio Trejo also spoke out against a government project to build privately run cities in Honduras, with their own police and tax system.

Just hours before being killed, Trejo had taken part in a televised debate in which he accused politicians of using such projects to raise campaign funds, says the AP news agency.

Honduras has the world's highest murder rate: 86 murders per 100,000 people.

Colombia drug baron Barrera captured in Venezuela

BBC News, 19 September 2012

Daniel Barrera had a $5m bounty
 on his head in the US and $2.7m
in Colombia
One of Colombia's most notorious drug traffickers has been captured in Venezuela.

Daniel Barrera, known as "Crazy Barrera", was captured in San Cristobal across the border from Colombia with the help of Venezuelan, British and US intelligence agencies.

Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos described him as "perhaps the most wanted kingpin in recent times".

Colombia is one of the world's main producers of cocaine.

Cocaine 'legend'

Mr Barrera's criminal empire delivered cocaine not only to the US but around the world, especially to Europe.

The reward offered for his capture in the US was $5m (£3m) - the same as Osama Bin Laden. Colombia added $2.7m to that.

The BBC's Jeremy McDermott in Colombia says the trafficker was a legend in the cocaine business, not only for his longevity but also for his ability to work with all sides in Colombia's 48-year civil conflict.

"He has dedicated 20 years to doing bad things to Colombia and the world, all types of crime, perverse alliances with paramilitaries, with the Farc [rebel group]," President Santos said in a televised speech.

Daniel Barrera's arrest was the third detention of an alleged Colombian drug baron over the past year.

Bolivia enacts law to protect Amazon pink dolphins

BBC News, 18 September 2012  

The pink dolphin, known locally as
bufeo,  is Bolivia's only freshwater
mammal species
Bolivian President Evo Morales has enacted a law aimed at protecting a unique species of dolphins that live in the country's Amazon rivers.

The new legislation bans fishing freshwater pink dolphins and declares the species a national treasure.

At a ceremony along the shores of the Ibare river, President Morales called on the armed forces to protect the habitats of the pink dolphins

The species is threatened by erosion, pollution and logging in the Amazon.

The Bolivian pink dolphin, whose scientific name is Inia boliviensis, is similar to mammals found in neighbouring Brazil, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela.

Male Bolivian freshwater pink dolphins can weigh up to 200kg (440 pounds).

An appendix to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Flora and Fauna (Cites) says the species is vulnerable because of overfishing in the Amazon basin.

But it says the main threat is the contamination of rivers in the region by mercury, used in illegal gold mining operations.

Lemuria: the lost continent

News Pakistan, Fouad Ashraf, August 31st, 2012 


Lemuria is a lost continent proposed by Philip Sclater Lutley in the nineteenth century, more precisely in 1864.

It was located in the Indian Ocean and lands connected and included current and South Africa, Madagascar, Sri Lanka (Ceylon), Sumatra, Australia, New Zealand and Pacific Ocean somewhere.

Lutley Philip Sclater was an English geologist who was dedicated to exploring and trying to understand these strange worlds as were Africa, Asia and Oceania. In one of his postulated that there should be a continent that connected the lands of South Africa and in India since the presence of lemurs in both continents was impossible.

It is clear that animals can migrate from one part of the globe to another, but the lack of other types of lemurs on the route that should have traveled to reach from one point to another suggests that should otherwise have traveled.

Clearly, the name Lemuria was proposed as the main hypothesis comes from the explanation of how these small mammals are present in the two continents.

After continued advancing science and geological studies achievements gained new theory about the existence of Lemuria was denied. The explanation for the failure of this lost continent explained by the theory of plate tectonics.

The theory of plate tectonics explains that the creation of the continents as we know them are actually the result of a separation of a large continent called Pangea .

Although the explanation for the absence of this continent is entirely valid explanations have not been found for the existence of lemurs in both South Africa and India. This is a question that remains open until today.

"The Big Picture - You Are Not Alone" - Feb 2012 (Kryon Channelling by Lee Caroll)
“… Lemurians

The Lemurian energy is the one seed-group that was totally isolated. You might even say it's the one where the Pleiadians came first. Because Lemuria was a mountain island [Hawaii], it survived in a form that was purer than others. Even the most remote groups on the earth had room to spread out [land], and that created variety of thought. But Lemuria was the same for thousands of years, making it one of the most long-lived civilizations in history and almost totally lost to science. We have given you their history before.

Therefore, the Lemurians carry the oldest Akash for an old soul and part of the system of spiritual seeding back then was that it was an avenue for only new souls to come in. Only a few of the Lemurian priests had a past-life in Lemuria, and most were women. Almost all the Lemurians were new to the planet. This was a major Earth-soul creating process, which is only now having results.

Dear ones, this was your fifth time to work the "enlightenment puzzle." You had four other opportunities that didn't get past this stage. However, this one has a potential that will survive. It's 2012 and the energy of it coordinates with the Galactic Alignment. This time fractal was seen as a major potential and even the prophecies of the ancients saw you going through this. Now you are beginning to do it. Even 50 years ago, this potential was not solid, for your fifth time might have been your last, for the old energy is strong and the idea of Humans destroying everything was a real possibility. Those who read this know what I'm talking about. Now even that has changed, if you noticed. …”
