Youtube. Könnten Avocados sprechen, würden sie von Morden durch Kartelle, miserablen Arbeitsbedingungen, Hungerlöhnen, ökologischem Desastern berichten! Innerhalb von neun Jahren hat sich der Importwert von Avocados mehr als vervierfacht, obwohl bekannt ist, dass Avocados viel Wasser benötigen, bevor sie in den Regalen angeboten werden.

Könnten Avocados sprechen, würden sie von Morden durch Kartelle, miserablen Arbeitsbedingungen, Hungerlöhnen, ökologischem Desastern berichten!

Und gerade dort, wo es sowieso Probleme mit dem Wasser gibt, genau dort werden Avocados angebaut. Und weil die Avocados boomen, werden seit einigen Monaten in Mexiko, gibt es Tote, Enthauptete, zerstückelte Leichen , die auf Alleen geworfen wurden oder an Brücken aufgehängt gefunden wurden. In dieser reichen Region im Zentrum des Landes, in der etwa 50% der weltweiten Avocados angebaut werden, findet ein Kampf zwischen den Bauern, Umweltschützer und dem mächtigen Jalisco Nueva Generación Cartel (CJNG) statt. Auch Mexiko gehört zu den größten Avocado-Produzenten der Welt, diesen Boom wollen sich die Kartelle nicht entgehen lassen und jagen die Bauern von ihrem Land oder bringen sie einfach um.

Rasen ist heute ein fester Bestandteil und perfekt soll er ebenfalls sein. In Deutschland wächst auf etwa 1,8 Millionen Hektar Rasen, der in wertvolle Ackerflächen umgewandelt werden könnte. Denn Gras kann man nicht essen, und so gibt es weltweit Menschen, die eine Alternative zu Rasen für sich entdeckt haben. Hätten Sie vor ein paar Jahren noch geglaubt, dass solche Konzerne wie die großen Lebensmittelkonzerne NESTLÉ, COCA-COLA und KRAFT HEINZ in die Krise geraten könnten?

Delhi’s air pollution problem started right after the controversial USAID and Monsanto backed law was implemented.

USAID, Monsanto & Delhi Air Pollution

Before this law was passed, the problem in Delhi was limited to vehicular and industrial pollution and there were no reports of the entire metropolitan area being enveloped by smoke. Over a period of several years, it has used the fraudulent excuse of preventing the decline of groundwater to push their agenda. The Delhi metropolitan area has one of the highest concentrations of population in the world, and suffocating the people of the area on an annual basis should be treated as a crime against humanity, especially when the cause for such suffocation can be controlled.

The NED Strikes Again: Neocon Money is Funding the Hong Kong Protests. It’s been a summer of unrest in Hong Kong, and the Western mainstream press has been in uproar providing non-stop coverage of what they’ve described as a “pro-democracy movement fighting for freedom” against the repressive Chinese government.

The NED Strikes Again: Neocon Money is Funding the Hong Kong Protests

Since March, thousands of protesters have taken to the streets each week, clashing with police and security forces, escalating into a fight over who should control Hong Kong’s future. The protests erupted over a proposed amendment to an extradition treaty between Hong Kong, Macau, China and Taiwan. Hong Kongers feared that the new treaty would allow the Chinese government to arrest and imprison dissidents or whomever from Hong Kong the government deems a threat, effectively ending freedom of expression. Hong Kong has been a haven for many anti-Beijing dissidents and political figures and many felt the proposed law would dilute the island city’s already limited independence.

(CD) — Free speech advocates who warned of the predictable consequences of allowing powerful tech companies to police online discourse seized on YouTube’s attempt Wednesday to purge hate speech from their video platform after creators performing public service journalism and education were swept up in the effort.

Ford Fischer Caught Up in YouTube's Attempt to Purge Hate Speech

Wednesday’s purge came after days of sustained criticism over YouTube’s handling of bigoted content produced by fringe alt-right commentator Steven Crowder that targeted Vox media personality Carlos Maza. After nearly a week of online outrage, YouTube demonetized Crowder’s channel and then launched a site-wide cleanup of what the company defined as hate speech and targeted harassment. But the purge also caught journalists and historians up in its wake as the tech giant’s heavy-handed response to Crowder’s harassment didn’t allow for context in most of the content. YouTube Just Fired the First Shot in a New War on Journalism. (TMU) — Wednesday morning, news began circulating warning that YouTube was about to delete thousands of accounts in the platform’s latest wave of censorship. This time, the massive video sharing platform claimed to be targeting hateful content, “supremacists,” conspiracy theorists and anything that promotes discrimination or segregation based on sexual orientation, religion, race, gender, age and more.

Upon hearing the news, regular consumers of independent media knew exactly what to expect: Censorship. Corporate platforms use these vague terms that sound nice in theory to cast a wide net that also de-platforms independent, anti-war, and rational voices. Whether this is done on purpose or is a consequence of using artificial intelligence and algorithms to monitor content remains to be seen. Sex, Lies & Julian Assange.

The Strange Case of Chrystia Freeland and the Failure of the ‘Super Elite’ — Strategic Culture. Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland has become a bit of a living parody of everything wrong with the detached technocratic neo-liberal order which has driven the world through 50 years of post-industrial decay. Now, two years into the Trump presidency, and five years into the growth of a new system shaped by the Russia-China alliance, the world has become a very different place from the one which Freeland and her controllers wish it to be.

Having been set up as a counterpart to the steely Hillary Clinton who was supposed to win the 2016 election, Freeland and her ilk have demonstrated their outdated thinking in everything they have set out to achieve since the 2014 coup in Ukraine.

If the government sent out a subpoena to the VPN providers to obtain the crypto-keys to decrypt Internet traffic or request logs to view user activity, would the VPN providers dispense that information?

SpiegelMining – Reverse Engineering von Spiegel-Online (33c3) RiffReporter: Klimaschutz homemade. The Great Man-Made River of Libya. One of the biggest civilian development project that Libya’s ex-president Muammar Gaddafi undertook during his forty-two-year rule was the Great Man-Made River. Gaddafi’s dream was to provide fresh water for everyone, and to turn the desert green, making Libya self-sufficient in food production. To make this dream a reality, Gaddafi commissioned a massive engineering project consisting of a network of underground pipes that would bring fresh water from ancient underground aquifers deep in the Sahara to the drought suffering Libyan cities.

Gaddafi called it the “Eighth Wonder of the World”. The western media rarely mentioned it, and whenever it did, it was dismissed as a “vanity project” calling it "Gaddafi's Pet Project" and “the pipe dream of a mad dog”. But truth is, the Great Man-Made River Project is a fantastic water delivery system that has changed lives of Libyans all across the country.

Battlefield Casualties and Ballot Box Defeat: Did the Bush-Obama Wars Cost Clinton the White House? by Douglas L. Kriner, Francis X. Shen. Abstract America has been at war continuously for over 15 years, but few Americans seem to notice.

Increasingly, a divide is emerging between communities whose young people are dying to defend the country, and those communities whose young people are not.
