Saudi-US Propaganda by PBS NewsHour in Houthi-held Yemen

Saudi-US Propaganda by PBS NewsHour in Houthi-held Yemen

This is what American tax-supported propaganda looks like when an organization like the PBS NewsHour wants to maintain a semblance of credibility while lying through its intimidated teeth. Yes, Yemen is one of the poorest countries in the world, long dependent on imported food and other life support. But to say “Yemen’s war” is major league deceit, and PBS surely knows the truth: that the war on Yemen is American-backed, initiated – illegally – in March 2015 by a Saudi-led coalition that includes the UAE (United Arab Emirates). The US/Saudi war is genocidal, creating famine and a cholera epidemic for military purposes. These are American and Arab war crimes that almost no one wants to acknowledge, much less confront…

TRUMP’S MILITARY DROPS A BOMB EVERY 12 MINUTES, AND NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT

TRUMP’S MILITARY DROPS A BOMB EVERY 12 MINUTES, AND NO ONE IS TALKING ABOUT IT

We live in a state of perpetual war, and we never feel it. While you get your gelato at the hip place where they put those cute little mint leaves on the side, someone is being bombed in your name. While you argue with the 17-year-old at the movie theater who gave you a small popcorn when you paid for a large, someone is being obliterated in your name. While we sleep and eat and make love and shield our eyes on a sunny day, someone’s home, family, life and body are being blown into a thousand pieces in our names…

How the UN Works
should we have world government?
ROLE MODEL

ROLE MODEL

We all need a role model, hero, or mentor. I have had several very important ones in my life. One of them died recently, a woman named Mary Harris. Mary passed-on just 49 days short of her 101st birthday. I served with Mary on the board of the Democratic World Federalists. She attended meetings regularly up until the last few weeks of her long life. Living at her beach home in Pacifica, she climbed up 160 stairs every time she went anywhere and relied on public transportation and friends for rides…

DWF Journey to the United Nations
DWF Journey to the United Nations

On August 21st, leaders of over 300 Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) and national representatives from over 100 countries arrived in New York City, New York at the United Nations Headquarters to discuss the future of the global political order. The focus of the conference was to update the UN’s 2030 goals, Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), discuss improving and furthering the legality of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the global women’s rights movement, and the need for a new form of multilateralism. The conference organizers reported that this year’s conference was the most diverse in the 67 years of the conference’s existence. The most women ever, the most non-European representation ever, and the most youth representation as well. And maybe, it was this diversity that led to, what many, long-time members of the UN DPI, said was the most energetic UN conference that they had ever been too…

Human Beings Face Extinction: We need to act now
Human Beings Face Extinction: We need to act now

The global climate is unraveling at rates far beyond the predictions of scientists. The studies are so common by this date, and the scientific evidence so pervasive going back at least half a century, that there is no need to cite sources about this fact. The oceans are dying, the fisheries are becoming exhausted. The forests are dying. They are devastated through human overuse, logging, wildfires, acid rain, and rapidly changing climate conditions…

As Swedish Foreign Affairs Minister Margot Wallström has stated, the ship’s cargo must be released, according to international law…

Solidarity with the Popular Movements of Columbia

The Coalition Against U.S. Foreign Military Bases declares our solidarity with the popular movements of Colombia who are currently the targets of a systematic operation of extermination and intimidation. On August 7, 2018, the right-wing candidate Iván Duque will take possession of the office of the presidency of Colombia, backed by every business and political interest, and every paramilitary organization that wants to undermine the country’s peace…

Is Washington Planning a Pre-Emptive Strike on Iran?

Is Washington Planning a Pre-Emptive Strike on Iran?

Is Washington planning a pre-emptive strike on Iran? Will Bolton, the neocon’s, and Israel get their way and invade Iran? Whether or not an attack against Iran occurs, the mere fact that it is a distinct possibility is a good reason to demand a review of the United Nations Charter. The UN, hampered by its defective Charter, cannot stop such an illegal action. Readers are invited to explore any of the 5 different articles presented from Global Research News by going to their Url shown below…

Weapons Made in America

Weapons Made in America

US President Donald Trump has made economic nationalism the centrepiece of his political agenda. ‘Made in America’ is one his touchstones. Trade wars are part of his arsenal. Last month, in the shadows of the White House, Trump met with his advisers to cement a renewed approach – sell more weapons around the world…

WORLD CITIZENS OR WORLD SUBJECTS?

WORLD CITIZENS OR WORLD SUBJECTS?

Many of us concerned with the future viability of the Earth and its population and environment like to think of ourselves as World Citizens. But are we really “World Citizens” or “World Subjects”? Should one differentiate between aspirations and reality, especially when it comes to citizenship…?
