 - The massive opposition against Monsanto is in full swing, and citizens around the world have had enough of the biotech giant’s food supply monopoly. There has never been a greater time than now to highlight the numerous dangers of Monsanto’s cancer-linked chemicals and genetically modified creations. That’s why this year’s March Against Monsanto protest is going to be the biggest one yet.

Spanning over 428 cities across the globe, March Against Monsanto is a grassroots culmination of countless individuals taking action and spreading the word about the reality behind Monsanto Company. A day of peaceful protest that now makes mainstream headlines, it was but a couple short years ago that I remember covering and attending the event in Philadelphia with minimal press presence.

- Following the second major earthquake that hit Nepal on 12 May, some scientists believe we could be seeing a seismically active period that began in 2004 and could end around 2019.

However, predicting the quakes more accurately in time and space still remains a task for the future.

The magnitude 9.1 Sumatra-Andaman earthquake of 26 December 2004, was one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded, triggering a tsunami that killed over 200,000 people.

Experts like Sun Shihong, research fellow at the China Earthquake Networks Centre have in the past spoken of a 100-year cycle for earthquakes.

In the first 60 years of the 20th century there were seven earthquakes above 8.5 on the Richter scale. In the following 40 years there were no major quakes. Sun believes a new cycle began at the end of 2004 with a massive 9.1 magnitude quake in Indonesia.

 - The phrase “right to exist” entered my consciousness in the 1990s just as the concept of the two-state solution became part of our collective lexicon. In any debate at university, when a Zionist was out of arguments, those three magic words were invoked to shut down the conversation with an outraged, “are you saying Israel doesn’t have the right to exist??”

What moves me instead in this post-two-state era, is the sheer audacity of Israel even existing.

What a fantastical idea, this notion that a bunch of rank outsiders from another continent could appropriate an existing, populated nation for themselves – and convince the “global community” that it was the moral thing to do. I’d laugh at the chutzpah if this wasn’t so serious.

Israel has no right to exist. Break that mental barrier and just say it: “Israel has no right to exist.” Roll it around your tongue, tweet it, post it as your Facebook status update – do it before you think twice. Delegitimization is here – have no fear. Palestine will be less painful than Israel ever was.

 - 5/21 ~ Venus (love, art & beauty) ~oppose~ Pluto (transformation): Okay, on top of all the responsibility and career things being triggered this week, love relationships want in on the action. This energy intensifies experiences where love or close relationships are concerned. Beware of indiscretions and seeking a more intense feeling or emotion..

5/22 ~ Sun (core Self) ~oppose~ Saturn (reality): This energy is a push-pull between who you are and who you want to be; between what you "want" to do and what you "have" to do. I always tell people, do what you "gotta do" so you can do what you "wanna do"...

 - Dozens of people have been injured after Israeli regime forces fired live rounds to disperse thousands of Palestinian demonstrators marking the 67th anniversary of the Nakba Day (Day of the Catastrophe).

On Friday, thousands of Palestinians held massive rallies in Ramallah, Nablus, and al-Khalil (Hebron) in the occupied West Bank to express their resentment over the ongoing Israeli occupation. 

The angry protesters chanted slogans against the Tel Aviv regime’s expansionist agenda and the confiscation of Palestinian land by Israel.

Local residents and witnesses said that the demonstrations were largely peaceful until Israeli forces assaulted the protesters, fired teargas canisters and live bullets to break up the protests. The protesters pelted stones at Israeli forces in return.

Israeli forces approach one of six ships bound for Gaza in the Mediterranean Sea May 31, 2010. (Reuters) - A new flotilla with humanitarian aid on board is going to help people in Gaza; the mission is beyond political polarization and in full compliance with international law, Osama Qashoo, member of the first flotilla to Gaza, told RT’s In The Now.

A flotilla carrying humanitarian aid has set out from Sweden on its way to Gaza which is under and Israeli maritime blockade. The ships are carrying pro-Palestinian activists aiming to break the blockade. Two other vessels are expected to join them later. The Foreign Ministry of Israel has described it an unnecessary provocation, saying the boats will be denied entry, and if you want to send aid to Gaza - do it via Israel.

Up to 10 people were killed 5 years ago when Israel tried to block the first flotilla bound for Gaza.

 - The entire world was watching when the devastating Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster hit Fukushima, Japan in 2011. After six nuclear reactors broke down due to an earthquake-triggered tsunami, 160,000 people were forced to evacuate and relocate to emergency shelters outside of the radioactive zone. Many, including the nuclear plant’s own employees, did not understand the severity of the accident and most believed they would be able to return home in a matter of months. However, four years later, the repopulation of Fukushima is still uncertain.

55-year-old Naoto Matsumura, a fifth-generation rice farmer from Fukushima, might be the only person who found a reason important enough to make him stay.

 - You might not be able to do much with just a quarter, but an innovative program in Canada has a great idea of how you can put that 25 cents to good use.

As part of a “Food For Friends” program, grocery stores located in Woodstock, Ontario have been inviting shoppers to add 25 cents to their check-out bill to help local families in need.

The donated money, which is collectively transferred onto food cards, allows families the opportunity to shop in dignity for their own fresh groceries. As such, they may avoid the shame associated with visiting a traditional food bank.

 - The Earth Heal New Moon group distant healing event is happening on Monday, 18 May 2015.

Non-member participants are asked to make an exchange for this treatment (an amount of your own choosing) to Earth Heal before the event. The principal of exchange is important in terms of allowing ourselves to receive the full benefit of the treatment, at the deepest levels. The amount exchanged is left totally up to participants, and all support is gratefully received and enable Earth Heal to continue planetary healing work on a regular basis, offering vibrational healing to people and animals anywhere in the world who require our help, and covering our running costs for the Earth Heal site.

If you are unemployed, please contribute a very small amount that is affordable for you.

Refugees, people in war-torn communities, indigent or homeless people, and those in desperate circumstances are included on a pro bono basis, and are asked to make a small contribution to someone in their own communities, such as a loaf of bread to a hungry person or a meal for a street dog, instead of making a direct exchange with Earth Heal.

 - Brazil’s government has excluded an Israeli “security” company from working at the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro following a campaign by Palestine solidarity activists.

This boycott success comes on the heels of another recent and very significant win in Brazil for activists urging boycotts, divestment and sanctions (BDS) against Israel. At the end of 2014, in response to a separate campaign, the Brazilian state of Rio Grande do Sul canceled a contract with the Israeli weapons company Elbit Systems to develop a major aerospace research center.

The campaign against the ISDS contract focused on lobbying the government to cancel any contract with ISDS on the grounds that the company had close ties with the Israeli military, as well as a long and sordid history in Central and South America.
