…and it’s really not about gender?

No it is not. I only want to inform you, world out there, about something very nice, the EU has riddled out for its people: The Eurogendfor.

If you’re wondering what that is, first of all, a link for you so you can research a little further than I will describe it.

This reputable force is OUR european special force which is allowed to intervene in all european and international states if there are riots or similar actions going on.

The Eurogendfor introduces itself as follows:

“EGF responds to the need to rapidly conduct all the spectrum of civil security actions, either on its own or in parallel with the military intervention, by providing a multinational and effective tool.
The EGF will facilitate the handling of crisis that require management by police forces, usually in a critical situation, also taking advantage from the experience already gained in the relevant peace-keeping missions.

EGF goal is to provide the International Community with a valid and operational instrument for crisis management, first and foremost at disposal of EU, but also of other International Organizations, as NATO, UN and OSCE, and ad hoc coalitions.”

So, I have a feeling that maybe the Eurogendfor will be participating in the greek demonstrations, in one or the other way. Which, in my view, is not a good idea. If my assumption will come true, it will be something like a test drive for this special force, to see how far they can go, how much they can hide from the public and how the media will be able to turn their actions  upside down or inside out, in other words: propaganda. At this point I may refer to the Lisbon Treaty and its additional protocols, especially the protocol No.6, which allows the death penalty and the use of violence in case of  riots, emergencies or war.

All of which remain to be defined, or will be defined by judges or our friends of the Eurogendfor. Nice name by the way.

Anyway.

It is important to connect the dots, this european super state is eager to blur in every way possible. So, if you read something like this post, start researching and start thinking about the future. Most of the people who actively designed this treaty and everything connected to it will never have to bear the consequences.

And again: Thanks EU for making our lives a lot saver!

An open letter to Greece

Dear Greece,

I don’t know where to start. There’s so much I wanted to say, but now the only thing I can do is to apologize.

Apologize for countries like (and especially) Germany or France.

I think you now why. For everybody who doesn’t, here’s the explanation:

Greece is completely bankrupt. Now every european country is afraid, that the Euro will be or is losing value, that other european countries will have to help Greece by paying money for their debts and that other countries will be bankrupt, too.

The news hit all of a sudden. But who found out about it? Well, thanks to the rating agencies, who estimated the value of Greece, we now know, that the greek people are lazy, dumb and corrupt and are unable to handle their money.

This or a quite similar version of the events taking place in Greece is out there for everyone to read in every newspaper available.

But is that really what happened?

When Greece became a part of the EU, Brussels knew about the financial situation and the problems of Greece. They knew about the financial and economic situation, but put their blinders on with a shrug and thought their underhand dealings  would never see the light of day… But then one day the sun shone really brightly, so the whole world saw what lay beneath the vail.

If that is not outrages enough, which it is in my opinion, it gets worse.

Now the wise and ideal countries, who have no problems themselves in their own countries, have a plan, and Greece is determined to do what they imposed on them. Firstly and foremost of course the EU (what- or whoever this anonymous EU is anyway) and secondly Germany…

Germany had a terrific idea: Greece should sell parts of their government property (which is public property) like small uninhabited islands or other parts of their country or property to pay off their debts.

My comment? WTF!

Only because Germany sold their public/government property (which collides and collided with the interests and wishes of their public and put the government in question) Greece should not be forced to do so. Especially because Germany has its part to play in the economic fall of Greece (and south europe in general as well). It’s all about money, debt and european competition, in which Germany is very successful, because Germany doesn’t care about their people: lowering the taxes for the super rich while squeezing money out of the middle and lower class, they work for the economic and monetary elite and discuss how to suck the last bit of solidarity out of the political and social systems.

Not a good paradigm and for that another reason to support the greek public.

Furthermore disinformation about Greece seems to become a daily business, and a lucrative one as well. Because it is a good distraction for all political, social and economic problems in the EU that can be pushed into the background and so will be forgotten, hushed up and decided in secrecy, in every european country and the european superstate.

Great hints the EU gave to Greece: higher taxes, less public servants and less payment for them and, as already stated, the public sell out.

Wow, thanks EU!

I want to give a small example of what life is in Greece when you’re a public servant:

Imagine a teacher, who teaches in a public greek school. Because he doesn’t earn enough money to live, he’s got two other jobs to earn his living. How is he supposed to live with less money? Should he get even more jobs? Or should he start to live of air and sun? Should he train to live without eating and drinking while living on the streets?

It is madness!

Madness made in the EU!

The Greek are absolutely right to demonstrate against these enforcement. Which brings me to the next thing: Propaganda.

The only thing I get to see when I switch on my TV is something like that:

The greek youth is demonstrating violently, throwing molotov cocktails before being silenced by the good police forces.

What a laugh. Everybody who is able to think and watch the news, will realize that the people demonstrating are not only young lazy no-goods. People of all ages, all social groups and all political convictions fight against the EU imposed madness.

How long until all Europeans will stand up and show their governments that what politics should be about is fulfilling the requests of the people, not those of the rating agencies and banks, of corrupt politics and liars.

The real problems europe has are other ones…

So, last but not least, I apologize for the arrogance and foolishness demonstrated by the heads of european countries. But I hope your fight against this insanity won’t be in vain and that it maybe will wake up other Europeans and finally uncover what this EU really is about: money and might.

Save havens

Two weeks of  Kopenhaven really got to me. I was unable to watch the news, because of the omnipresent climate change. I don’t want to hear it anymore, all those lies and all those good-hearted politicians only wanting to save our planet…for god’s sake!

But what it was good for is as follows:

The demonstrators were treated like extremists, the security standards were so very strict that even the reporters got cranky because they weren’t able to report the propaganda as usual. They had to pass security always, even when they wanted to got to toilet. Yeah, poor reporters. Most of the demonstrators were held captive minimum once they attended the demonstrations and were treated more than rough: sitting on the pavement for ours, being beaten by the police and the media seemed to agree with all those actions.

Well, at least, the end (of the year) is nigh, so let’s sit back and watch how this year is going to end.

Although I believe that nothing will ever change politics, politicians and economy, I hope that maybe one day we the peoples of the world will get a chance for real change.

So maybe this is going to be my new years pledge: to see through more of the lies propaganda tells and try to wake up some more sleeping beauties.

So, merry christmas and a revolutionary new year for everyone!

UPDATE 12/08/2009:Young, beautiful – and very, very angry!

UPDATE: The violence rages on. The police brutality against citizens and demonstrators is outrages. Now, they even have policemen disguised as civilians, working together with the police, kicking and hitting demonstrators and even passers-by. My solidarity to all demonstrators. Please do not stop reporting. The world needs to see more than this propaganda on TV!! For more information, videos and photos please see this link.

One year ago the greek police shot a 15-year-old boy. What happened after that has become history – at least for some people. It had and still has influence on their daily lives, because since then, nothing seems to have changed. Even though their new president made many promises of which none has come true.

I’m of course talking about the riots in Greece, which took place a year ago and which were connected to great violence from every side. Police as well as demonstrators.

Since then we’ve heard a lot and often about Greece again. And so it is today.

The cities are burning, the country where democracy was born, has become a state of angry, young people, having and seeing no future, if the system goes on working like it is.

I’m against violence, because there is nothing that justifies it. But though I understand why it is used by some demonstrators. What to do in a country you have no perspective? Especially when you’re young and want to reach something? When your whole life is over before it has begun? When there is no chance to get a job, to have a health insurance, to build a home even to get your scratch of education?

This is of course a very dark way to put it, but nevertheless, from what I’ve heard and read, many people feel like that.

Thousands of people got to the streets and were demonstrating peaceful. It seems as if the police has orders to detain as many people as possible. The problem is, that only a fraction of what happens is shown and reported in the media, most of it shows the violence of the demonstrators and silences the fact that the police has its part in it as well.

Why, for example, are policemen allowed to overrun demonstrators by motorcycle? Whatever violence the demonstrators use – the force with wich the police reacts is more than is allowed, more than what should be possible and it should be stopped. It seems to me that the rage becomes publicly shown hate which justifies every step taken and manifests in killing and detaining demonstrators.

Please follow this link, to get more information from the activists point of view, watch the videos and think about what’s going on there. Learn more about their goals and reasons for the actions taken.

And apart from the violence, I’m saluting: the solidarity the greek are able to show each other, their endurance for protesting and for claiming what they believe to be right – real democracy and freedom, a perspective in life and a social state.

But it seems as if some people use the Greek as an excuse to burn police stations even in Germany. That was said by their news report “Tagesschau”.

But first things first.

In Berlin and Hamburg there were attacks against the offices of ministers and secretaries, and the “Bundekanzleramt”, like the office of the german chancellor. Those were only “colour attacks” meaning that balloons or similar things filled with colour were thrown at the walls and windows.

In Hamburg a police station was attacked with molotov cocktails and a few police cars burned down. No one was hurt. That was in the night from saturday to sunday.

Then the news reported that a text was given to a newspaper (Hamburger Morgenpost), where a group calling themselves “Koukoulofori” (which means something like the hooded or masked) claimed responsibility for these attacks and furthermore threatened to repeat the attacks. They legitimate their attacks with the dead of 15-year-old Alex last year and see it as protest against the regime in Greece.

Though the police thinks it is authentic, I prefer being a bit more careful. Who knows how this could be used to impose new regulations and anti-terror laws in every european and other country in this world. Because then it is not only the islamic terrorists, but the left-wing terrorists as well, they have to “protect” us from. There could be a lot more behind it than we now think of. But of course, that’s just conspiracy talk.

But again it is shown how any action any event in this world seems to affect the whole rest of it. How everything that is directed against the system is used by the same system and inverted to take it as a weapon against the people, who try to break free of it.

That’s why I don’t think violence will get us to where we want to go. But when you don’t know where you go, or if you can go – that’s a point of hopelessness, frustration and anger that breaks itself free of any scepticism and rational behaviour.

I don’t justify it, I only think that it’s human and so could happen to every single one of us given the right circumstances…

War Promises – Please watch!

Just a short YouTube documentary announcement:

The german filmmakers from NuoViso made a very good documentary called “war promises” which is now available in english as well as in german.

Please watch the documentary. It is not only informative but shows how war is created by different lobbies and politicians to earn money and oil and might. And why war seems to be a bottomless money-making machine!

Here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mAQVQtLSK8

Please watch it!

I also want to remind you that the Lisbon Treaty is in effect. Meaning that the EU now has a common foreign policy which is binding for every EU state. Every state has to participate in all actions which could be taken in regards of foreign relations. No matter if we want it or not – it will be done, like the history of the Lisbon Treaty has shown very clearly until now.

What an incindent!

So, just in the moment I proclaimed the week of civil disobedience, I saw what was going on in Istanbul.

Yeah right. Not only that the World Bank and the IMF (International Monetary Fund) had a nice meeting again, where they declared the old world order (meaning before the crisis) to be – nonchalantly put – out of date and not worth talking about.

The new one will be prepared and imposed on us as soon as they have created the perfect moment to slam it into our faces. Of course they know, what is next to come…

But a different point of view:

Again opponents of the existing monetary system and of the world order as it is and will be, have demonstrated. I don’t say that I support the aggression or the destruction that took place, but I really prefer that they stand up and make their opinion very clear.

I really don’t understand, why the peaceful protesters were arrested. Why I say that: Well, I only saw police officers who cuffed the peaceful protesters, who didn’t even try to escape the cuffs or the police. Shouldn’t it be the other way round?

Again all of us are reminded that all over the world people want to save their rights, their freedom, their individuality, people who fight for the rights of those who are not able to speak out for themselves.

So, thank you!

And to you, Mr. Zoellick, we all know what really counts for the World Bank and the IMF, so don’t try to pull our legs, or maybe our feet will one day find a nice place in your behinds they’d really quite fit into!

Shoot the terrori…I mean save the protesters!

Ok, another day another topic.

Today is all about demonstrations and their participants.

First of all, we’ll take a look at what the right to demonstrate is all about.

In most countries you have the right to demonstrate for political, ideological or whatever cause, based on the freedom of speech and the right to assemble for public protests. It is a democratic way of participating in the political decision making process as well as showing political weaknesses and errors at least those that are perceived that way by the population.

Until this point everything is known, isn’t it? We can use our rights to protest against injustice in all areas of life, society and politics which we think are wrong or at least not as they should be.

But what is happening for a few years now, always justified by 9/11 and the war on terror, is the constraint of those rights.

Let’s take a look at Guinea:

50.000 people protested peacefully against the military dictatorship that seized the power after the long term dictator Lansana Conte had died. Furthermore Mousa Camara, the leader of the new military dictatorship, now wishes to be elected for president although he had stated after the putsch that he will not participate in the next election. So, a sudden change of mind, eh?

But let’s stick to the point:

1500, so the official numbers tell us, were hurt and wounded not to say slaughtered. Women were stripped naked on the streets and then raped by the soldiers or by the police. They shot the protesters randomly without reason.

Of course, now you think: It’s a military dictatorship! What else should happen, when you exercise your rights.

Sorry to disappoint you, really, because Guinea/Africa seems to be not the only police state existing.

The demonstrations called “Freedom not fear” which were an international attempt to mobilize the world population to protest against the “total retention of telecommunication data and other instruments of surveillance” was partly not only attended by police but destroyed. The police also used violence against the protesters, as can be seen here in Berlin, here and there.

As you can see in the Berlin video, the police is filming the protestors. I think is has become a common way of identifying the participants for further investigation. With the small constriction that the police doesn’t allow the protesters to film.

How about some more nice examples of how the police serves its citizens?

Here, from september 24th at the G20, here from 2007 I think. This is from 1999 in Seattle. Or here without any reason in the UK.

There are so many videos of police brutality taking place not only while demonstrations! So what can we learn from it?

Or put differently: How many people have to attend a demonstration to be save from police brutality? Can you be save?

I say no! Because the police is not a servant of the people it is an instrument to observe and control people, filming the protestors while they prohibit being filmed, often by taking away the cameras of the protester or even destroying them.

It also is a way of making people afraid of demonstrations or of taking part in them, of demonizing protestors and show them as terrorist who destroy cities, undermine authority and who are potentially dangerous.

Do you think this describes you? Are we all potential terrorist? No, we are NOT! But we are free people, capable of speech, thinking and full of will.

And as long as we have our rights, we should use them. And everybody who wants to take these rights away should prepare, because we will be loud and for everyone to hear, when we march peacefully for our freedom.

Don’t let your rights be torn apart, don’t shut your eyes – open your mouth!
