Rant Alert: Fiddling While Rome Burns. Our myriad of excuses why we don't or won't take action and at this late stage I don't have a great deal of patience left for it. Climate crises is real and we are staring extinction in the face yet we still hold on to habits traditions and convenience at any cost. Are we too stupid to live? Seems that way.

"Shortly after Israel announced a new “zero tolerance” policy toward demonstrations in Gaza, some 130 Palestinians were injured Friday while protesting ongoing Israeli occupation and demanding the right of return. Four paramedics and 25 children were among the injured. Ten thousand protesters gathered along Israel’s heavily militarized separation barrier with Gaza as part of the weekly Great March of Return protests that began March 30. Since then, Israeli forces have killed at least 170 Palestinians, including more than 30 children, and injured thousands more. We speak with Hagai El-Ad, the executive director of the Israeli human rights organization B’Tselem. He was in New York last week testifying before the U.N. Security Council officially for the first time.
AMY GOODMAN: You know, this week, the pope sainted Archbishop Romero, Óscar Romero, of El Salvador, who was assassinated in 1980. The last speech he gave before he was gunned down was heard throughout El Salvador on the radio. And he ordered the soldiers, he beseeched them, he pled with them, to put down their arms, to defy orders. He said, “Stop the repression.” In April, your group, B’Tselem, called on Israeli soldiers to refuse orders to shoot unarmed protesters. Did they heed?
HAGAI EL-AD: No. We published ads. This is actually also like a legal responsibility, a moral responsibility, not only, I think, from like any decent person, but also according to like Israelis’ own laws. If a soldier receives a flagrantly illegal command, he is duty-bound not to follow that command. And commands that order soldiers to fire at unarmed protesters that are not endangering anyone, from a distance, these are flagrantly illegal commands. They should not have been given. And the responsibility for that is with the country’s leadership, with the prime minister, defense minister, chief of staff. And that’s where the responsibility begins. That’s where the brunt of the responsibility is. But if such orders are given..
I woke today to find my Facebook personal page had been disabled and both my antimperialist antiwar Facebook pages The Naked Empire and Faint Signals from Vega have been deleted also along with 800 other alt media pages by Facebook. I put a lot of work into The Naked Empire in particular. I didnt have anywhere near the subscribers that some of the other alt media pages had but I considered it to be quality sharing and also I created my own content. I did a number of good interviews with indy journalists Ben Norton Max Blumenthal Dan Cohen, Dahlia Wasfi, Ray McGovern, David Swanson, Barrett Brown and others. My focus was also Palestine which I always knew could make me a target. Can't shut up about Palestine though. They need us to get the word out right? ❤
I see this as an ongoing attempt to whittle away the alt media pages that share left content from bigger content creators like Abby Martin. It's not too noticeable knocking off smaller alt media pages. It will interesting to see how long it will take for Facebook to take down pages like Empire Files Chris Hedges, Truthdig and so forth. Very unfortunate the increasing censorship. Fascism is well and truly on it's way.
Have you checked out the #IPCC report in relation to #CLIMATECHANGE and the #planet's future and our future? No more excuses. 😉 Time is now to do what's right.
Warning Graphic content. To date over 200 peaceful protestors and over 20K have been injured since late March 2018 when the peaceful protest started at the fence of the open air prison that is Gaza.
