Avatar is an allegory: Europe was enriched by the genocides in the Americas; the American nations were founded on them. Columbus ordered that all the native people who didn't deliver a certain amount of gold had their hands cut off. Washington was similar

If we are serious about helping Haiti, we must stop trying to control & exploit them. Ever since the US invaded & occupied Haiti in 1915, every serious attempt by Haiti's people to end exploitation & poverty has been violently blocked by the USA & allies
Population Control's Dark Past

A focus on population is a dangerous diversion from the urgent need to transition to a zero-carbon economy. Population control schemes are ineffective, & inevitably treat the victims of social & economic injustice as obstacles to a sustainable society.

Communications Minister Blanca Eekhout said the U.S. seeks to provoke a war between Colombia & Venezuela to disrupt the current process of economic & political unity by Venezuela & other independent govts. 1,000s marched against US-Colombia military deal.

While most governments in the region acted in solidarity with the elected president and the majority of Hondurans, and broke ties with the coup regime, the USA has not broken ties with the regime. US military ties & most economic aid & US trade continue.

Sri Lanka's war against the Tamil people has not ended. 250,000 Tamil people face nightmare conditions detained behind barbed wire in violation of international law, in concentration camps where they are killed, or subjected to torture, rape, disease, etc

To regain control of its "backyard," the U.S. is increasingly intervening in Latin America: U.S. support for the recent military coup in Honduras, destabilisation of Bolivia, Venezuela, Ecuador & Paraguay, & a massive U.S. military build up in the region.

The accord (signed on October 30 to end the coup conflict) has failed, because coup leader Micheletti refuses to accept the accord's condition that democratically-elected President Manuel Zelaya be reinstated. The people of Honduras continue the struggle!

6,000 police & soldiers occupied Central Light & Power Company of Mexico offices in October. Rightwing President Felipe Calderon then illegally liquidated the company & its union, the SME, leaving 44,000 workers unemployed. Huge demonstrations - join us!

The guns were seized from prisoners, & people arrested for violent crimes. In polls, Venezuelans say crime/insecurity is the most serious issue affecting Venezuela. Govt stats show that homicides rose from 1999-2007, but with new reforms, are now dropping

Despite the supposed withdrawal of US troops from Iraq, more than 130,000 US soldiers remain -- similar to the size of the US contingent when the invasion began in 2003. Torture is routine in government detention centres. Get U.S. troops out of Iraq now!!!

Official U.S. documents say a new deal with Colombia will allow the U.S. to fight "anti-US governments" in South America. Chavez responded: "Don't make the mistake, President Obama, of ordering an overt aggression against Venezuela utilizing Colombia."

Some people imagine that "Venezuela is a dictatorship that people are fleeing". The reality is very different: a democracy, where the people have elected socialist governments in recent years, ensuring less poverty, more human rights, & more people coming

Venezuela also announced the capture of 2 Colombians & 1 Venezuelan accused of spying for Colombia's spy agency, & Venezuela might submit captured documents to international bodies to "stop the abuses of the Colombian oligarchy" against democracy & peace.

The report concerns illnesses suffered by thousands of Abidjan locals. It suggests their likely cause was the release of potentially lethal gas after chemicals were dumped.
