Israeli Navy Seizes Freedom Flotilla III to Gaza


According to Freedom Flotilla Coalition’s latest contact with the “Marianne” at 2AM (Gaza time), the boat is aproximately 105 nautical miles and continues on its course towards the Palestinian territorial waters and the port of Gaza. It is expected to reach its destination during the next 24 hours.

As the “Marianne” enters the final segment of its trip, the Freedom Flotilla Coalition has decided to reveal its strategy. At this moment the three sailing boats accompanying and supporting the “Marianne” (“Rachel”, “Vittorio” and “Juliano II”) are changing their course and will be heading back to their ports of origin.  Political representatives, journallists, peace activists on board, a total number of 29 sailors, have assisted the Marianne and its people towards their long and difficult journey, which has always remained to end the illegal and inhumane blockade of Gaza.
We demand that our respective governments act with humanity and to ensure the safety of all of the delegates on board the “Marianne”. We call once again on the government of Israel to finally lift the blockade on Gaza and let the peaceful ship, the “Marianne”, reach its destination in order to deliver its cargo of dignity and hope. We urge all international organizations to work towards opening the port of Gaza to let people and products travel freely to the world. Our destination remains the conscience of humanity.

Apache Stronghold Rally Tucson June 30, 2015

Apache Stronghold Rally in Tucson June 30 
Caravan to Washington, D.C. Begins July 5 with Mount Graham Sacred Run

Tucson, AZ – Tuesday, June 30, 2015, at 7 pm, Apache Stronghold will hold a rally to support the efforts to protect Oak Flat, a sacred Apache site located on the Tonto National Forest which is threatened by a proposed copper mine. Apache Stronghold will begin a caravan to Washington D.C. the following week and will rally in the Nation’s capitol to ask the U.S. government and the public to support the Save Oak Flat Act, a bill introduced by Congressman Raul Grijalva in mid-June.
 The rally is sponsored by Indigenous Alliance Without Borders and Tucson Supports Oak Flat to promote Apache Stronghold in their effort to restore this land to the people. Donations for the caravan will be accepted and information about how to get involved in this historic movement will be available.
 Oak Flat, or Chi’chil Bildagoteel, has been protected from mining since 1955, when President Eisenhower recognized the importance of this site and used an Executive Order to permanently protect the cultural and natural resources for future generations. Senator John McCain, Senator Jeff Flake, Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick, and Congressman Paul Gosar used late-night political maneuvering to trade away this sacred land to a foreign mining company by attaching the land swap to a must-pass defense spending bill in December of last year.
“Once again the U.S. government has turned its back on promises made to Indian people. We are left with no choice but to take our fight to this nation’s capital” said Jose Matus, Director of Indigenous Alliance Without Borders, adding “We need to show our elected officials that the people of Arizona want sacred tribal sites protected and to let Congress know they cannot get away with giving away public lands to corporations. If Oak Flat can be traded away to a mining giant, no sacred site is safe.”
 Support for Apache Stronghold and Oak Flat has been growing steadily since February 2015, when members of the San Carlos Apache tribe began an encampment at Oak Flat to protect the site. Mainstream media has taken note with articles appearing in the New York Times, and on MSNBC. Thousands of people have signed petitions to repeal the land exchange or have the site nominated as a National Monument. Recently, the National Trust for Historic Preservation named Oak Flat as one of America’s 11 most endangered historic places.
 The rally will include music and members of the San Carlos Apache Tribe will be available for interviews.

When: Tuesday, June 30, 7:00pm-9:00pm
Where: Global Justice Center, 225 E. 26th Street
Why: Rally support for Apache Stronghold caravan to Washington, D.C. and generate support for the Save Oak Flat Act.

FALL OF THE ROMAN VAMPIRE

MNN. JUNE 28, 2015. The City of London controls all Admiralty courts worldwide. It forces its laws, commercial, political, language and culture on people globally at our peril. Red-X, the inter-dimensional ongwe’hon:weh being, looks out for us. He says that the phrase “the empire on which the sun never sets” was stolen from us. Our worldly purpose of the Great Peace was perverted.
Test your media savvy!The powers-that-be feed off of negative emotions promoted through their ownership of mass media. Media acts as their food production plant. They will starve without it. They promote fear, anger and hatred in everyone of their news stories to get the masses wound up emotionally. This is the fuel for their male hierarchy. Red-X tells us, “Many ongwe’hon:weh are murdered to feed this beast. The more blood, killings and suicides, the better for them”.
Red-X warns us, “The vampires exist only from negative emotion. Through their Babylonian divide and conquer strategy, they expect total domination of all people for their new world order. The vampiric control grid consists of the banksters, Free Masons, Illuminati and all the other esoteric hierarchical groups. The vampires enjoy flaunting their wealth and their assumed status amongst the regular populace they feed off of.
They try to scare us by telling us, “I have magic which will hurt you” to keep alive their collective negative man-eating energy. Their institutions put their instruments of fear in our minds. Red-X knows their cheap tricks. Like the magician, they make a great gesture with their left hand. With the right hand they pick our pockets and stab us.
"Quick! Run! The tekaneronkwatsera is gonna get us!"
“We’re hungry! Maybe there’s fear this way, honey!”
When the people use the strongest medicine in the world, tekaneron’kwa:tserah, [the true one love] the vampires will wither and die. Peace will follow. Red-X asks, “Are you going to let their collective destructive thoughts come into your mind?” Our earliest ongwe’hon:weh were kidnapped and taken to Europe. They saw dirty, unhealthy, starving people in a living hell. The vampires always will be searching for more blood. They still want our land, resources, and to kill us. Red-X says, “We can overcome them with knowledge and speed of thought”.
Look at yourself and your family. Our intelligence is activated by the great medicine,tekaneron’kwa:tserah.
Red-X mounted his silver bird, “I will come back and enter our minds when I am needed to remind us not to stray, forget our wisdom for our children, carry out good actions and for everyone to nurture the Great Peace”.
pontiacThe vampires greatest victory is to have you believe they do not exist. Red-X gives the solution: “Keep a good mind by allowing no fear. Stay on the path that leads to the Peace. The vampires will starve to death”.
As Jace Everett sings“When you came in, the air went out. And every shadow filled up with doubt. I don’t know who you think you are. But before the night is through, I wanna do bad things to you!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0eQL5R3bw4
