Rate: 3 Flag



"0.5 % in Haiti - Haiti's Oligarchy - own 98% of Haiti's wealth through monopolies orchestrated and supported by Western policymakers and corporations." - Ezili Dantò of HLLN

THE EVOLUTION OF DISASTER CAPITALISM

(English, about 2 hours, uploaded about 7 hours ago by fansmiles, broadcast date: 2010-11-10) (Source - politube.org)

 

THE EVOLUTION OF DISASTER CAPITALISM, Fine-tuning “Shock-Doctrine-Style” Policies , The Brecht Forum, New York - Haiti......Congo....Pakistan.....New Orleans, with Beverly Bell, Kambale Musavuli, Adaner Usmani & Ezili Dantò

 

The end of the first decade of the new millennium seems to have been marked by some of the worst natural disasters that has displaced and killed millions of people. Beginning with the earthquake in Gujarat, India in 2001; volcanic eruptions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 2002; followed by earthquakes in China and Algeria in 2003; the Tsunami in 2004, the earthquake in Pakistan’s north west frontier province in 2005; Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans later that year; the Japanese earthquake in 2009, and Haiti and Chile in 2010. The disasters, which now mirror the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, have generated a complicated and fractured terrain on which human rights and economic justice are seriously compromised.

 

Displaced people, scattered communities, devastated homes, and grieving families combine with acute health, resources, and food shortages. In the wake of such life disruptions, neo-liberal policies and conservative political formations take root, penetrating the political-economic cracks, and simultaneously the collective consciousness of a people.

 

This panel will give us an update on the current situation in Haiti, the DR of Congo/ great lakes region, Pakistan and New Orleans. The panel will also look at the intersectionality of the psychological, socio-political and economic implications created by these natural disasters. What patterns and trends have been generated over the course of the decade? What are the long-term psychological after-effects? Under these conditions, how are local leaders and groups organizing? In solidarity with the people, how do we consider, organize with, and fight for justice. What structures of accountability can we generate when economies of the wealthy few are tied to the devastation of the disenfranchised many?

Ezili: I told you when we first met in Cyberspace, or at least I insinuated it citing an article in Jeff Rense.com, that with the advent of HAARP the Evil Pigs (EP’s) who have hijacked the dream that was America have gained control of Gaia’s bodily functions. By beaming concentrated radio signals at focused points in the ionosphere and then bouncing them back at magnetic points on the earth (Gaia) these signals become magnified thousands of times over. The EP’s call this process nonlinear energy. If you were to line dominoes up from NYC to Paris starting at NY and made each domino .01% bigger than the one before it by the time the last domino toppled over onto Paris it would be bigger than the Eiffel Tower. That’s an example of how nonlinear energy works. I cannot tell you exactly how HAARP works. I am not a scientist but Dr Nick Begich is and he wrote a book warning the world about this technology in 1995. The tittle of Begichs book is ‘Angels Don’t Play This HAARP’. Begich himself is the son of the Alaskan political Icon Nick Begich senior who was serving on the only seat Alaska has in the U S House of Representatives when on 10/16/72 his plane mysteriously disappeared during a flight from Anchorage to Juneau. Also on the plane was House Majority Leader Hale Boggs. No trace of that plane was ever found despite the massive efforts of the coast guard and navy. Mark Begich Nick’s brother is currently the junior U.S. Senator from Alaska as of 2010. The HAARP installation is based outside of Anchorage. When the ex-Governor of Minnesota Jesse Ventura showed up at its gates with a camera crew recently he was denied access. Americans would do well to learn about the consequences of this technology by reading Plato’s account of Atlantis. They may also want to examine the fossil records, at exactly the time Plato tells us Atlantis was inhaled by the ocean there were massive extinctions throughout the North and South American continents including all humans. If the EP’s and all their enablers are not exterminated history will repeat itself. The earth, Gaia, is a living tapestry and she will heal herself by removing the offending organisms. The EP’s have found that disaster capitalism is extremely lucrative when you can regulate the disasters. BP could have capped that leak anytime they wanted. Why should they have? Where once they had one oil well now they have 5, paid for by tax dollars: ( http://phoenixrisingfromthegulf.wordpress.com/2010/11/10/bp-oil-spill-cover-up-cleanup-disaster-capitalism-at-its-worst/). To stop the EP’s will cost many lives to not stop them will cost all lives. I have told people repeatedly on OS that cattle live to be slaughtered and the day of the harvest is upon us.
