 - This imposed artificial time constraint is a very subtle one, especially when you realize everything depends on perspective. We’re clearly experiencing a manipulated, illusory cycle of time with parameters that make us feel contained, limited. And that’s the intent. Closing in on your prey is an ingrained predatory behavior. If the subjects feel there’s no escape, compliant behavior will eventually follow.

That’s pretty clever on the part of the controllers, but it’s only effective when you’re not awake to what’s going on.

Perceived containment has been proven time and again in even popular science to produce certain behaviors. Time is only one factor, but an important one as it is one of the more subtle ways they exert control and amplify fear. We cannot succumb to any of these false paradigms. Humanity is running to and fro in an effort to find solutions, but only within the confines they’ve been cleverly restricted to. It’s a closed system with clearly defined limitations. We look within their constructed time-framed and otherwise controlled system for solutions when there are none to be found. And again, it’s all by design.

The only true solution lies in conscious, transcendent awareness of the true big picture.

 - Palestinian activists have joined with global actionprisactivists to call for a Day of action for Global Political Prisoner’s Day, on 12 December 2014.

People People worldwide risk their lives for the ideal of freedom, democracy and social and political justice. People exercising their legal right to resist occupation, or resorting to democratic violence having exhausted all peaceful means, are political prisoners. They should therefore be treated with all the conventions and rights applicable to prisoners of war.

There have always been some brave men and women who are prepared to risk their lives and liberty for their people’s freedom. It is unacceptable that those people should be detained without trail, kept in inhumane conditions and face torture or medical neglect. We start this campaign for the independence and freedom of all oppressed people against those who disregard human value, rights and liberty.

We call upon all who reject injustice in the world to participate on the 12 December, making it a day for political prisoners. We are aware that each country or organisation will have particular causes to which they are dedicated. They will bring their energies and resources to that cause but ideally will remain aware that an injury to one is an injury to all. We intend that this day will become an annual event until all prisoners are free.

Israel slams Swedish plan to recognise Palestine

 - The European Parliament will add its voice to the debate on whether EU states should recognise Palestine on Thursday, 27 November in Strasbourg.

The draft text “urges all EU member states … to recognise the state of Palestine on the basis of the 1967 borders with Jerusalem as the capital”.

The MEPs’ motion will not be binding on EU countries, but it comes amid a wave of pro-recognition sentiment in Europe.

Meanwhile, over 700 Israeli VIPs, artists, and professionals have sent a petition to MEPs asking them to support recognition.  The signatories include former Israeli ambassadors, military officers, and MPs.

 - Over the last few weeks, tensions have been incredibly high in Jerusalem. As David Hearst puts it, ‘The red line in this battle is al-Aqsa in particular and Jerusalem in general. There is no question in the minds of the Palestinians of East Jerusalem but that Israel has already crossed this line. Attacking places of worship has alas become commonplace. Since June 2011, 10 mosques in Israel and the West Bank have been set on fire by presumed right-wing Jewish extremists. No charges have been filed. Over 63 mosques were destroyed and 153 partially damaged in Israel’s attack on Gaza.’

Israeli State incitement against Palestinians has included closing and limiting access the Al Aqsa Mosque, and vindictive measures such as spraying skunk water into quiet streets and schools. In the wake of the horrific killings of Israelis and Palestinians over the past few days, it appears the situation is deteriorating quickly. Gun rules for Israelis are to be eased, and the Mayor of Ashkelon has banned Palestinians with Israeli citizenship from working on building works in Kindergartens. Violence is surging against Palestinians. On Sunday, 32-year-old bus driver Yusuf Hasan al-Ramuni was found hanged inside his bus – Israeli police were quick to dismiss his death as suicide, but a Palestinian doctor, who attended the autopsy, said the father of two was strangled to death. Osama al-Ramuni, the victim’s brother, said Yusuf’s body had bruises on it, suggesting he had been tortured before his death.

Yet again, Prime Minister Netanayahu has been inciting violence, calling for a ‘heavy hand’ and describing it as a ‘fight for Jerusalem’, announcing plans for aggravated punitive measures against the families and communities of the men responsible for attacks against Israelis.

The time has come for the people of the world to bring this 66-year reign of terror to an end. Please take action wherever you are, and support some of the many ongoing campaigns and actions taking place around the world to lift the siege of Gaza, bring the war criminals to justice, and to Free Palestine.

Global actions in support of Palestine continue to be organized in cities around the world, and are updated weekly in our calendar.

- Quick question: What in the hell is going on in California?

First, the state experiences an historic drought, which some have charged is actually being engineered.

Then, new legislation was passed just a few months ago which aims to control and regulate the use of groundwater on a never-before-seen level on one’s privately-owned land. These laws will even create agencies that basically serve as “water police.” Private wells will have to be registered and metered, and landowners who fail to comply will have their wells forcibly shut down by the government.

It’s to the point that $500-a-day fines are being handed out for not obeying water restrictions, people are turning into snitches and “droughtshaming” each other on social media, and if it continues, the cost of produce could soar nationwide (considering much of the country’s fruits and veggies are grown there).

Now, it has come to light that three billion gallons of fracking wastewater has “accidentally” been pumped into clean aquifers there.

 - Maybe you have heard people call Earth “the water planet.”  The nickname is well-deserved. The majority of Earth’s surface is covered by either liquid or frozen water.  The atmosphere is awash with water as well. One satellite-based data set estimates that about 60 percent of Earth’s surface is covered by clouds (composed of water and ice droplets) at any given time.

Earth is home to yet another type of water—groundwater—which includes all the fresh water stored underground in soil and porous rock aquifers. Though groundwater is often forgotten because it’s not visible, more than two billion people rely on it as their primary water source. 

With drought afflicting several parts of the world, and with the contamination of groundwater by fracking and the aggressive use of groundwater in many agricultural regions, this precious water resource is under serious strain.

 - If the South African government gets its way, 60-80% of all natural supplements will soon vanish from South African shops. The government is bowing to corporate pressure to get rid of natural supplements by regulating them to the point that only giant pharmaceutical companies control the market.

The giant corporations have massive amounts of money to "lobby" for a change in legislation. As such, the SA government is under huge pressure to put laws in place that will effectively ban natural supplements. The corporate lobbyists nearly got away with it in the USA and the UK, but mass consumer activism stopped them at the last minute.

Don't let them get away with it here in South Africa. Let's start by signing this petition.

 - In response to the vote last week in the U.S. House of Representatives to authorize the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, the Rosebud Sioux Tribal President announced that the Rosebud Sioux Tribe (Sicangu Lakota Oyate) recognizes the authorization of this pipeline as an act of war.

The Tribe has done its part to remain peaceful in its dealings with the United States in this matter, in spite of the fact that the Rosebud Sioux Tribe has yet to be properly consulted on the project, which would cross through Tribal land, and the concerns brought to the Department of Interior and to the Department of State have yet to be addressed.

“The House has now signed our death warrants and the death warrants of our children and grandchildren. The Rosebud Sioux Tribe will not allow this pipeline through our lands,” said President Scott of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe.
