Palestinian Factions Fatah and Hamas unite in Moscow*

Palestinian Factions Fatah and Hamas unite in Moscow*

It serves Israel for them to be divided, so we’ll see what happens when they return home to Palestine…

By Adam Garrie

The implications of today’s agreement are far reaching and confirm Moscow’s leading role as an even-handed geo-political peace broker.

Leaders of the two main rival Palestinian political groups, Fatah and Hamas have met in Moscow where they agreed to form a unity ‘all-Palestine’ government.

Although many symbolic talks between Fatah and Hamas have resulted in meaningless deadlock, today’s agreement could pave the way for a future peace conference between a united Palestine and Israel.

In a further blow to U.S. regional prestige, it is clear that in respect of Palestine both main factions as well as smaller Palestinian parties see Moscow’s approach to the conflict as one that offers an even hand with a pragmatic goal; a penultimate resolution to this seemingly never ending conflict.

For Israel’s part, Tel Aviv has numerous trade deals with Russia, the importance of which has only been strengthened by anti-Russian E.U. sanctions. With Moscow seen as a crucial partner but importantly, also an impartial arbiter by both sides, there may be a chance to reach a meaningful settlement that thus far the U.S. has only made increasingly unworkable.

Palestinian sources cite Donald Trump’s recent election as one of the motivations to create a united front. However, in spite of Donald Trump’s rhetorically unambiguous support of Israel, like with many things concerning Trump, his business acumen and pragmatic approach to geo-political conflicts, could work in the best interests of all sides in the conflict.

An important parallel can be derived from an understanding of the trilateral peace conference for Syria, which is about to take place in Astana. There, Russia, Iran and Turkey set out clear goals to create a lasting peace in Syria. In spite of Turkey’s well known support of jihadist terrorist groups in Syria, Ankara too – at least on paper – has signed up to the common pledge to respect Syria’s territorial integrity and her legitimate government.

Were Moscow to organise a peace conference on the Israel-Palestine conflict, as Russia has wanted to do for some time, one could envisage a similar scenario.

In such a situation, there could be a Russian drafted agreement signed off for by a united Palestinian leadership and an Israeli government, with the US more or less agreeing to the terms without having an active hand in overseeing let alone enforcing the agreement.

Not only is this now plausible under a Trump Presidency, but it would help legitimise the agreement in the eyes of most Palestinians and even many Israelis who have felt equally let down by the Obama administration.

The template is there, and Russia’s role as a leading geo-political mediator is now beyond doubt.

Will the U.S. impede or accept this new reality?

This is in the hands of Donald Trump, a pragmatist far more trustworthy than Obama the ideologue.

Washington D.C. Turned Into “Virtual Fortress” As 250,000 Protesters Descend Upon the City*

Washington D.C. Turned Into “Virtual Fortress” As 250,000 Protesters Descend Upon the City*

By Tyler Durden

Over the past couple of days, we’ve highlighted a couple of the mass protests that are being planned by disaffected Hillary supporters in an effort to disrupt the various Trump inaugural events that get kicked off tomorrow evening.  Perhaps the most aggressive “disruptions” have been planned by groups called “DisruptJ20” and the “DC Anti-Fascist Coalition” and include plans to “paralyze the city” with “clusterfuck blockades” of bridges and tunnels, “stink bombs” in ventilation systems and chaining metro trains to station platforms to shut down rail traffic.  Unfortunately for them, all of their plans were caught on tape by Project Veritas (see “New Video Exposes Anti-Trump Groups Plotting Criminal Acts To Disrupt Inauguration“) so we suspect police will be well prepared.

As Reuters points out this morning, efforts to disrupt the inaugural process will have to evade a massive force of 28,000 security personnel and miles of fencing and roadblocks fortified by sand-laden dump trucks and other heavy equipment. 

Washington will turn into a virtual fortress ahead of Donald Trump’s presidential inauguration on Friday, as the U.S. capital braces for more than a quarter-million protesters expected during the Republican’s swearing-in.

About 28,000 security personnel, miles (kilometres) of fencing, roadblocks, street barricades and dump trucks laden with sand will be part of the security cordon clamped around 3 square miles (almost 8 square km) of central Washington.

“If we do have a mass arrest, we’ll be able to get people processed very quickly,” he said in an interview with Washington’s NBC 4 television station.

And, if America’s millennial snowflakes are able to break through the police fortress they will undoubtedly be met by the Wall of Meat recently promised by the “Bikers for Trump” group which has vowed to go “toe-to-toe with anyone that is going to break through any police barriers.”

Overall, the inauguration is expected to draw a crowd of 900,000 with 250,000 of those guests showing up to protest the new President-elect.

Police have forecast that some 900,000 people, both supporters and opponents, will flood Washington for the inauguration ceremony, which includes the swearing-in on the steps of the U.S. Capitol and a parade to the White House along streets thronged with onlookers.

About 30 groups that organizers claim will draw about 270,000 protesters or Trump backers have received permits for rallies or marches before, during and after the swearing-in. More protests are expected without permits.

By far the biggest protest will be the Women’s March on Washington on Saturday, which organizers expect to draw 250,000 people.

Luckily, at least one helpful protest group will be on hand with plans to calm down the rowdy masses by passing out 4,200 doobies.

One Washington inaugural protest will come amid a haze of pot smoke as pro-marijuana protesters show their opposition to Trump’s choice for attorney general, Alabama Republican Senator Jeff Sessions, a critic of pot legalization.

The group plans to distribute 4,200 joints at the inauguration and urge attendees to light up. Possession of small amounts of marijuana is legal in Washington, but public consumption is not.

As we’ve said before, we wish all the protesters the best of luck…we’re sure your dreams of disrupting the democratic process will be well rewarded with a free night’s stay at a local DC jail.

E.U. Bans Amalgam Fillings for Children and Pregnant or Nursing Women*

E.U. Bans Amalgam Fillings for Children and Pregnant or Nursing Women*

By Dr. Joseph Mercola

“The next generation of Europe’s children are safe from toxic dental mercury,” proclaims Charlie Brown, president of Consumers for Dental Choice and the umbrella World Alliance for Mercury-Free Dentistry.

Starting July 1, 2018, amalgam use is banned for children under the age of 15 and for pregnant or nursing women — anywhere in the vast European Union (E.U.) — which includes 28 countries in all, with a population totaling more than half a billion people.

“This landmark achievement still has to be officially ratified,” Charlie says,

“but all three European Union institutions, the [European] commission, the Council [of the European Union] and the European Parliament have reached consensus.”

“The ban on amalgam for children in Europe, we promise you, will reverberate in favour of the children across the world — in America North and South, in Africa, and in Asia and the Pacific,” said Brown

“The game changer that will do in amalgam is the Minamata Convention on Mercury, which requires every participating nation to act to reduce amalgam use. The Convention is expected to become legally binding in the middle of 2017.”

The hard-fought victory in Europe came after six grueling years of reports, hearings before the Commission, meetings at the Parliament, events in the national capital cities and in the E.U. capital city of Brussels and submission of testimony to a seemingly unending number of players. Civil society — the public — mobilized at a level rarely seen on an issue so intertwined between environment and health concerns. European-wide non-profit groups brought their networks to the forefront, and were joined by nation-based environmental and patient rights’ groups from France, Germany, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, Sweden, Denmark, the United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain and Italy.

Ultimately, in an internet vote called by the European Commission, 88% of the public voted for a phase-out of amalgam as opposed to only 12% to keep amalgam — and voter turnout was double that of any other Minamata issue.

At the outset of the campaign in 2010, every major E.U. institution supported amalgam. At the end, in 2016, no major E.U. institution did.

Brown pays particular homage to four Europeans who led the campaign: Elena Lymberidi-Settimo from Greece; dentist Dr. Graeme Munro-Hall from the U.K.; Marie Grosman from France; and Florian Schulze from Germany.

Thank You for Supporting Mercury-Free Dentistry!

Mercury-containing amalgam is a primitive, pre-Civil War pollutant that has no place in modern dentistry. Compelling evidence shows that dental amalgams readily release mercury in the form of vapor every time you eat, drink or brush your teeth.

A single amalgam filling may release as much as 15 micrograms of mercury per day; 10 micrograms per day is average. To put that into perspective, eating mercury-tainted seafood can expose you to about 2.3 micrograms per day, and that alone was enough for scientists to call for a worldwide warning in 2006.

Brown, a twice-elected former attorney general for West Virginia, has committed nearly two decades of his life to protecting children and grownups around the world from the dangers of mercury amalgam.

Consumers for Dental Choice has been a Health Liberty partner with us since 2011, and this victory is a powerful demonstration of the impact you can have when you donate money to our Health Liberty partners.

We worked long and hard to identify these partners, and Consumers for Dental Choice is one of the most effective consumer protection organizations out there. Charlie has spearheaded the creation of an enormously dedicated and effective international team operating in dozens of countries on every continent.

I would personally like to thank all of you who donated to this cause earlier this year and in years’ past. Your financial support is what makes these kinds of victories possible. Yes, you CAN make a difference in other people’s lives.

Next Steps for Europe and Elsewhere

Next, each of the 28 European countries must submit a plan for how they are going to reduce amalgam use in the remainder of the population. The most vulnerable, the children, are now protected from the dangers of amalgam, but in all reality, amalgam should not be placed in anyone, of any age or gender.

These plans are due by July 1, 2019, and by then, Charlie suspects most countries will opt to phase out amalgam entirely.

As for the United States and Canada, now that the entire E.U. is taking a strong stand to protect the health of children and pregnant/nursing women, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Health Canada will be pushed to reconsider their stance.

So far, they’ve both chosen to protect amalgam producers and the profits of pro-mercury dentists.

However, while the E.U. situation will turn up the heat on these agencies, Charlie urges all consumers everywhere to refuse to do business with any dentists who still use mercury amalgam in their practices, because consumer pressure is the fastest way to eliminate the practice.

EPA Finalizes Rule Restricting Dentists’ Mercury Discharges

In related good news, on December 15, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized a rule restricting dentists’ mercury discharges.

After more than a decade of debating the issue and an additional five years of delays, the agency finally finalized requirements for dentists (placing or removing amalgam) to install amalgam separators to prevent mercury from being flushed down the drain, entering municipal waste water treatment facilities and being haphazardly released into the environment.

Dental offices are “the largest source of mercury in municipal wastewater, the largest consumer use and also the largest reservoir of mercury in use today,” said Michael Bender, director of the Vermont-based Mercury Policy Project and a strong supporter of the World Alliance for Mercury-free Dentistry.

He called the separators, which the EPA estimates will cost dentists about $800 per year to operate, “a practical, affordable and available technology for capturing mercury.” As reported by E&E News reporter Gabriel Dunsmith:

“EPA pegs total discharge from dentists’ offices at 5.1 tons annually. The new rule will enforce the use of amalgam separators, which capture mercury before it is discharged.

The technology will eliminate dental mercury discharge, the agency said, in addition to 5.3 tons of other waste metals. In a fact sheet, EPA said its new rule is a ‘common sense solution to managing mercury that would otherwise be released to air, land, and water.’“

The Fight Continues for an Amalgam-Free World

Seeing the E.U. decision as a springboard, Consumers for Dental Choice and the World Alliance for Mercury-Free Dentistry have launched a campaign to ban mercury amalgam for every child everywhere.

“We target 2020 as victory year for the world’s children,” said Brown.

“This victory for Europe’s children will lead us to for the children of Asia, Africa and America North and South. Amalgam belongs only in museums that feature failed medical strategies.

As noted by Lymberidi-Settimo, Zero Mercury Campaign project coordinator with the European Environmental Bureau: With this agreement Europe takes an important step toward returning to world leadership in implementing the Minamata Convention. These steps toward a phase-out of dental amalgam will now resonate across the world.”

Conspiracy of Silence Has Finally Been Broken

As previously explained by Charlie, there’s been a decades’ long conspiracy of silence in the dental community, and for good reason. No patient in their right mind wants amalgams in their mouth once they understand that half of it is toxic mercury, and so it was kept a secret.

There was even a gag order on dentists preventing them from informing their patients that amalgam contained mercury, and dentists who dared speak out about amalgams risked losing their license for doing so.

This is why amalgams have misleadingly been called “silver fillings” — a description based on their colour rather than the actual composition of the material, 50% of which is mercury, NOT silver. Not only do amalgams leach mercury into your system, they also increase the likelihood of your teeth cracking and requiring additional dental work later on.

 

For consumers, dental patients and dental workers, there is no advantage to amalgam — none whatsoever. It isn’t even a modern filling technologically. One group, however, does benefit: the “drill, fill and bill” dentists who cleverly make more money per chair per day doing assembly line dentistry. It’s past time for these polluters to switch to mercury-free dentistry, and it’s time too for their patients to either insist on mercury-free fillings or head out the door to another dentist.

What the pro-mercury dentists are not telling patients is that dentists are making money again on the back end. Being a metal that expands and contracts, amalgam can crack teeth and are not at all (like composites and ionomers) tooth-friendly. So amalgam costs us a lot more than composite once we factor environmental costs and future tooth restoration costs, or either one of those.

Composite materials are only about 20% more expensive than amalgam, and on small cavities there’s no difference in price. Some materials, such as ionomers, are actually less expensive than amalgam. The conspiracy of silence kept consumer knowledge at bay for a long time. Fortunately, Zogby polls shows the number of people who know amalgam is mercury has doubled in the last eight years. And, as predicted, once they know it, they don’t want it.

Are Your Amalgams Causing Health Problems?

Dental mercury fans the flames of inflammation, which is a key factor in most chronic disease. It also impairs your body’s ability to detoxify. You may be particularly vulnerable to the toxic effects of mercury if your immune system is in any way compromised, or if you are exposed to other toxins, in which case mercury has a tendency to become even more toxic.

General symptoms of mercury poisoning can easily be overlooked or misdiagnosed. If you have any of the following symptoms or a combination, you might want to have yourself screened for heavy metal toxicity:

Impairment of vision, hearing or speech, including light sensitivity Lack of motor coordination Muscle twitching and/or tremors Weakness
Headaches Itching or burning Skin discoloration (red nose, cheeks or lips) Profuse sweating
Elevated heart rate High blood pressure Mood swings, nervousness, anxiety, or irritability Insomnia

 

Important Information about Amalgam Removal

For those of you who have mercury fillings, I recommend having them very carefully removed by a competent biological dentist who follows professional protocols for amalgam removal. It’s VERY important to have it done correctly. When amalgams are removed, a large amount of mercury is released, and if the proper precautions aren’t taken, your body can absorb a massive dose of mercury that can lead to acute kidney problems.

I experienced this myself more than 20 years ago when I had my amalgams removed by a non-biological dentist. Biological dentists, on the other hand, are well aware of these dangers. Some of the steps that need to be taken to keep you and your dentist safe during amalgam removal include:

Providing you with an alternative air source and instructing you not to breathe through your mouth Putting a rubber dam in your mouth so you don’t swallow or inhale any toxins, and using a high-volume evacuator near the tooth at all times to evacuate the mercury vapor
Using a cold-water spray to minimize mercury vapors Washing your mouth out immediately after the fillings have been removed (the dentist should also change gloves after the removal)
Immediately cleaning your protective wear and face once the fillings are removed Using room air purifiers

 

By Refusing to Cover Composite Materials, Insurance Companies Impose Great Harm

Disturbingly, many insurance policies still refuse to pay for composite fillings. Others that do cover composite fillings will only pay up to the cost of an amalgam, leaving you to pay the difference. As a result, people who have dental insurance are actually more likely to get amalgam than those paying out of pocket.5

When insurance companies refuse to fully pay for mercury-free composite fillings for all teeth, they harm more than your pocketbook. They harm:

  • Your health: Dental amalgam releases neurotoxic mercury vapor into your body. Children, the unborn and the hypersensitive are especially vulnerable to the toxic effects of mercury. Amalgam also requires the removal of healthy tooth tissue, thereby weakening tooth structure and increasing the risk of cracked teeth — leading to higher dental bills later.
  • The environment: Dental amalgam is the largest source of mercury pollution in the U.S. Once amalgam’s elemental mercury reaches the environment, it can convert to methylmercury, which can contaminate the fish we eat. Mercury pollution can cause health problems, especially for children and the unborn, whose brain and nervous systems are still developing.
  • Your dental office: Dental amalgam can contaminate dental workplaces with mercury, which exposes dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, front office staff and visiting patients to this toxin. Due to this constant exposure, dental professionals — many of whom are women of childbearing age — have been found to have higher systemic mercury levels than the general population.

Demand Your Choice

Today, about 50% of American dentists offer mercury-free dentistry, up from 3% 20 years ago. To accelerate change in the U.S., Consumers for Dental Choice is urging all American consumers to demand mercury-free dentistry — both from your dentist and from your insurance company. If they refuse, switch dentists; switch insurance.

At present, many insurance companies, including Delta Dental, Aetna, Equitable and Humana typically will pay only for amalgam in your molars, even though composite, not amalgam, has become the standard and mainstream filling material in North America. And, since mercury-free dentists — again, about half of all dentists in the U.S. — will not give you an amalgam filling anywhere in your mouth, the insurance company profits handsomely since you then have to pay the bill out-of-pocket even though you’re insured! As previously noted by Brown:

“They sell an artificially low-price policy to get you in. That’s a bait and switch. It’s time to hold all of them accountable … Challenge your insurance company; demand your claim be paid, and work with your mercury-free dentist to do that. We have the paperwork if you push the ‘Demand Your Choice’ button … We can change this from the grassroots up. We’re not going to wait on the FDA … We’re going to simply change the market.”

What’s Lurking in Your Silver Fillings?

It’s estimated that 75% of Americans are ignorant about that fact that amalgam fillings are actually 50% mercury, and this is no accident. The American Dental Association (ADA) popularized the deceptive term “silver fillings” so consumers would think amalgam is made mainly of silver when actually it has twice as much mercury as silver.

Mercury is an incredibly potent neurotoxin; it doesn’t take much to cause serious damage because it’s an absolute poison. If you were to take the amount of mercury in a typical thermometer and put it in a small lake, that lake would be closed down due to environmental hazards. Yet, amounts much higher than that are readily put into your mouth if you receive a “silver” amalgam dental filling, as the majority of material in the filling is actually mercury.

‘Stop Operation Soros’ Movement begins in Macedonia*

‘Stop Operation Soros’ Movement begins in Macedonia*

A new initiative, Stop Operation Soros (SOS), dedicated to countering the influence of American billionaire activist George Soros, has been launched in Macedonia.

In a press conference on Tuesday, the founders of the group called on all “free-minded citizens,” regardless of ethnicity or religion, to join them in the “fight against one-mindedness in the civil sector, which is devised and led by George Soros,” the Vecer newspaper reported. The movement says it will first focus on uncovering ‘subversive’ activities by Soros-funded NGOs.

According to Nikola Srbov, a columnist for pro-government news portal Kurir and co-founder of SOS, Soros-funded NGOs have monopolized civil society in Macedonia and used their position to suppress dissenting views.

“We’ve witnessed the takeover of the entire civil sector and its abuse and instrumentalization to meet the goals of one political party. That is unacceptable and goes beyond the principles of civic organizing,” Srbov said at the press conference.

“The Open Society Foundation, operating under the Soros umbrella, used its funding and personnel to support violent processes in Macedonia. It has monopolized the civil society sector, pushing outside any organization which disagrees with the Soros ideology,” he stated.

Another co-founder, Cvetin Cilimanov, editor-in-chief of the state-run MIA news agency, accused Soros’s Open Society Foundations of undermining Macedonian sovereignty by working not only with the opposition center-left SDSM party, but also with outside interests. By cooperating with foreign embassies and organizations such as USAID, Cilimanov believes Soros-backed groups have interfered in the political process of Macedonia.

“This is unacceptable and has largely contributed to a feeling in the public that the traditional relations of partnership Macedonia enjoyed with some countries are being undermined,” Cilimanov told journalists.

A third founder of the initiative and editor-in-chief of the Republika news portal, Nenad Mircevski, declared that the group would work towards the “de-Soros-ization” of Macedonia, echoing a speech made by former prime minister and leader of the ruling VMRO-DPMNE party Nikola Gruevski in December. In the speech, Gruevski accused foreign powers and Soros-backed organizations of meddling in Macedonian politics.

Opposition figures have expressed concern at the rhetoric used by Gruevski, fearing the start of a crackdown on dissent and advocacy groups.

The Open Society Foundation (OSF) was set up by Hungarian-born Soros between the mid-1980s to early 1990s with the stated aim of helping former Eastern bloc countries transition from communism. However, aside from its support for progressive causes such as drug policy reform, the OSF has also been involved in political activities and Soros publically supported the violent overthrow of the legitimately-elected government in Ukraine during the ‘Euromaidan’ revolution. This has earned him the ire of Russian authorities, which in 2015 banned Soros and his foundations as a threat to national security.

Soros and his foundations have come under scrutiny elsewhere as well. In an interview with the internet portal 888.hu in December, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said that 2017 would bring about “the extrusion of George Soros and the forces symbolized by him.” Orban has accused Soros of undermining European borders and values by helping facilitate the flow of refugees and asylum seekers from the Middle East and elsewhere. During a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange also blasted the Organized Crime and Corruption Reporting Project, funded by Soros, for focusing “exclusively on negative stories about Russia and former Soviet states.”

World Bank Aims to Hand over Seed Industry to Agribusiness*

World Bank Aims to Hand over Seed Industry to Agribusiness*

Monsanto is one of the six major companies in control of the world’s seed.

Monsanto by David Dees

The world seed market currently lies in the hands of only six agribusinesses transnationals.

A host of concerned organizations and individuals have come out in opposition to a corporate-backed plan by the World Bank to control the world’s seed industry. The groups say that the wide-reaching plan will strip farmers of their rights to seeds and food.

The denouncement comes in response to the World Bank’s report titled, “Enabling the Business of Agriculture.” A letter signed by 157 organizations and academics, was addressed to World Bank President Jim Yong Kim and the EBA’s five donor organizations, to demand an end to the controversial project.

“The EBA dictates so-called ‘good practices’ to regulate agriculture and scores countries on how well they implement its prescriptions,” said Frederic Mousseau, policy director from the Oakland Institute. “The Bank, behind closed doors, convinces governments to implement reforms based on the EBA scores, thereby bypassing farmers and citizens’ engagement,” he added.

In the report, “Down on the Seed, the World Bank Enables Corporate Takeover of Seeds,” the Oakland Institute explained how multinational companies already exercise tight control on the majority of the world’s seed industry.

It shows how the world seed market currently lies in the hands of only six agribusinesses transnationals, while small campesino farms “currently provide 80 to 90 percent of the seed supply in developing countries through on-farm seed saving and farmer-to-farmer seed exchange.”

While it would be crucial for food security across the world — especially in poor countries — to maintain the autonomy of small campesino farms, the World Bank is promoting a different model opposite to its official principles, said the report.

“The EBA reforms aim to foster the privatization of seed systems, regardless of the consequences for farmers and the planet,” said Alice Martin-Prevel, author of the report, “Down on the Seed.”

“The reduction of farmers as passive consumers of industrial seeds undermines their contribution to agro-biodiversity, which is crucial to mitigate pests, disease, and the effects of climate change. It also disempowers farmers, while failing to protect them in increasingly concentrated markets,” she concluded.

DAPL Cops Open Fire on Prayer Circle with Rubber Bullets, Shoot Water Protectors in the Back*

DAPL Cops Open Fire on Prayer Circle with Rubber Bullets, Shoot Water Protectors in the Back*


By Claire Bernish

Morton County Sheriff’s Department officers together with the National Guard began firing less-than-lethal projectiles, pepper spray, and, reportedly, mace on a group of water protectors at Standing Rock during what was supposed to be a prayerful, peaceful walk to the drill pad where work is rumoured to continue on the Dakota Access Pipeline.

And all of this, of course, happens on the holiday honoring Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. — who dedicated his life to non-violence to spark drastic change on the issue of civil rights.

Around 200 water protectors eventually grouped at the site of the drill pad, and three were arrested — accused of trespassing after cutting a razor wire fence and then allegedly tampering with industrial lighting.

As the crowd verbally taunted militarized police sporting riot shields and military gear, the situation Monday quickly tensed, and police began spraying people with mace. Soon after, as some water protectors sang and prayed, police fired rubber bullets at a few individuals, who then had to be transported away from the scene for medical assistance.

Reports from people at the camps indicated police brought in vehicles with water cannons just beyond the scene. In the video below, we can also see police open fire on water protectors with rubber bullets in their backs as they are running away from the tear gas.

Water protectors also gathered at Highway 1806’s Backwater Bridge, where a blockade of cement barriers, burned out vehicles, and razor wire remains in place after a confrontation in the autumn.

In fact, that site has seen several confrontations between water protectors and police from multiple states led by the Morton County Sheriff’s Department over several months — the worst occurring on the night of November 20 when less-than-lethal rounds, tear gas, and water cannons were employed to allegedly control the crowd.

The weather conditions of the protestors

The weather conditions of the protestors

Hundreds were injured and dozens had to be treated for hypothermia when law enforcement sprayed protectors with pressurized water in sub-freezing temperatures. Police claimed protectors acted violently against them and set several fires which blazed out of control — but video showed the pipeline opposition group defending against the onslaught of force, mainly hurling tear gas canisters back at police.

Monday night’s showdown between National Guard-reinforced law enforcement and completely peaceful water protectors at first seemed it would devolved into a similarly unjustified use of force, but — though many were maced and a few shot with projectiles — the situation did not spiral completely out of control.

Before night fell on the camps near Cannon Ball, North Dakota, activists filmed and photographed a surface-to-air missile system brought by law enforcement to the area near pipeline opposition camps — allegedly in place to shoot down any drones flown above the scene.

Despite evacuation and emergency orders in place in the area, water protectors remain encamped near the banks of the Missouri River in protest against completion of the Dakota Access Pipeline. A fracture also occurred after Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman Dave Archambault II asked those unprepared to endure the harsh winter on the open plains to vacate the camps.

Additionally, Oceti Sakowin — now the primary and largest camp — lies in the river’s floodplain and, as snow thaws, will eventually be submerged.

Water protectors have vowed to remain at the location until construction of Dakota Access is permanently halted — but considering the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump has openly courted Big Oil, it appears unlikely the effort will see its dream of protecting the drinking water source of some 18 million people and the Standing Rock Sioux tribe will come to fruition.

Law enforcement did not respond to multiple requests for comment on the events of Monday night.

Birth Control as U.S. Foreign Policy*

By Mary Serumaga

Aggressive population control campaigns in Africa have their roots in American foreign policy going back nearly 60 years. U.S. authorities concluded that rapid population growth in the developing world threatened America’s access to cheap resources necessary for their consumerist lifestyle. Unknown to many in the countries targeted, and against protests from the Catholic Church, America has pretty much achieved its objectives.

In The Color Purple, Alice Walker creates a scene in the forest village of Olinka in which the villagers grow increasingly excited about the approach of a new road. When the expatriate engineers reach the very edge of their village, without having participated in the planning of the road and with no knowledge of its final destination, the Olinka hold a feast in celebration. The next day the engineers resume work, driving the road through the heart of Olinka village and destroying everything in their path. It can be said a lack of due diligence on the part of the Olinka was their downfall.

In 1958, U.S. President Eisenhower is on record as follows:

“As far as he could see, continued the President, the only solution to this problem throughout the world was finding an effective two cent contraceptive. Otherwise no matter what we do, as these reports indicate, we keep falling behind in our efforts to raise the standard of living in so many parts of the world where it is desperately low.”

The problem he was referring to was the escalating population rate in developing countries. While wanting to emulate Europe in extracting minerals from developing countries, the United States was not committed to the investment in keeping those countries somewhat alive. This is clear from this memorandum to President Johnson dated 1965:

“While you’re thinking about foreign aid, here’s a fascinating statistic. A recent study claims that if economic resources in many LDCs were devoted to retarding population growth rather than accelerating production growth, these resources could be 100 times more effective in raising output per capita! In many of these countries, spending only about one percent of their present overall development outlays on reducing births could be as effective in raising per capita output as the other 99%.

…. The process of getting these countries to the stage of self-sustaining growth, and thus reducing the longer term foreign aid burden on us—could be greatly foreshortened.”

India

Population growth was not the only geo-political challenge Eisenhower faced. By 1959 the foreign policy priority in India was to prevent the country from becoming Communist. The U.S.S.R. had offered India a 5-year lump sum grant to support India’s 5-year economic plan. U.S.A. officials felt they had to match those terms but were constrained; they could only be sure of annual appropriations by Congress. India’s non-aligned position would make aid to India less palatable to Congress.

Nevertheless, President Eisenhower was upbeat about India’s self-sufficiency target of ten years. Treasury Secretary Dillon noted that among governments of the least developed countries, President Nehru’s was the most aware of the problem of the predicted population explosion and had a fertility reduction policy, implemented by sterilization or abortion with positive results in Kerala at least. It was hoped an inexpensive contraception could be found and perhaps a widespread education programme launched.

Regarding India’s proposed forcible sterilization of men, their objections centred less on human rights grounds, and more on practicability;

“We recommend that U.S. officials refrain from public comment on forced-paced measures such as those currently under active consideration in India. The Indian Government’s demand for accelerated action is understandable, but there are moral considerations as well as practical obstacles to involuntary sterilization programs (inadequacy of medical, legal, and administrative facilities), and they might have an unfavorable impact on existing voluntary programs.”

The rest of the world

Eisenhower remarked that these problems were compounded in South America by ‘religion and dogma’ while Turkey, Morocco and Malaysia all had cultural issues with family planning. The rest merely lacked the competence to implement programmes, cited were: Egypt, Kenya, Ghana, Haiti, Iran, Malaysia, Nicaragua, Mali, Botswana, Nepal, Ecuador and Liberia.

China, Thailand, Republic of Korea, Colombia, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Tunisia, Singapore, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Panama, Trinidad and Tobago, Mauritius, and Barbados had succeeded in reducing their growth rates while the outlook was hopeful in Indonesia and the Philippines.

By 1973, population growth in developing countries had reached crisis point. Three members of the Population Crisis Committee met with Ambassador Porter, Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, and foreign policy officials to discuss it,

“Ambassador Porter said… our population programs were not closely enough connected to our overall aid programs but were handled too separately….there was no use pumping in aid funds and food without closer correlation with population programs…. He believed we should not put large amounts of money in aid programs in developing countries without thinking over the long-term consequences. He said he agreed that population growth in developing countries is a definite threat to the peace, not just an economic problem.”

National Security Study Memorandum 200 (NSSM200)

In 1974, National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger circulated the National Security Study referred to as Memorandum 200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas Interests (NSSM200). The recipients, the Secretaries for Defense and Agriculture, the Director of the C.I.A., the Deputy Secretary of State and the Administrator of International Aid, were directed to consider the issue of world population. As the title suggests, it was to be considered in terms of the best political and economic interests of the U.S.A. The Committee was explicitly instructed that ecological, sociological and other issues were secondary.

The study predicted a sharp increase in world population with growth in the least developed countries (LDCs) outpacing the rate in the West. While the populations of developed countries were expected to increase by 40% by 2075, populations were expected to grow 5-fold in South and South East Asia and Latin America and 7-fold in Africa and to double in East Asia during the same period.

Rapid population growth would lead to food shortages in the future, the least developed countries being unable (even in the absence of crop failure) either sufficiently to increase food production or to afford to import the deficit. Income per capita would be undermined; chronic unemployment and underemployment intensified; finances diverted from productive investment to health, education and other services; family savings and domestic investment would fall while expenditure on food imports would rise, all leading to a low and stagnant standard of living.

Anticipated socio-economic effects of this population growth were: child abandonment, juvenile delinquency, petty thievery, organized brigandry, food riots, separatist movements, communal massacres, revolutionary actions and counter-revolutionary coups in turn driving demographic trends such as urban migration. The political fall-out would be factionalism and insurgencies potentially leading to a drop in foreign investment in the developing world and nationalization of foreign businesses.

NWO FamilyMinerals

What made this a political concern for the U.S.A. was its potential to militate against the enabling environment required for foreign investment in mineral exploration and long-term extraction projects. With only 6% of the world’s population, the United States in the 1970s consumed 30% of the world’s natural resources and demand was expected to grow with continuing industrialization.

The political, economic and social stability of mineral supplying countries was essential to an uninterrupted supply of minerals. Projections showed world population reaching 6 to 8 billion in 2000 and 10 to 13 billion by 2075, anything above which was thought to be unsustainable. NSSM 200 was formally adopted under National Security Decision Memorandum 314 in November 1975.

National Security Decision Memorandum 314 (NSDM)

This is the background to the strenuous fertility reduction programmes currently in place in East Africa and elsewhere. One option was, in the short term, proactively to lower the population growth rate in LDCs, aiming for an average family size of two children and hope that economic and social progress would lead to the viability of and preference for smaller families in the long term.

Potential methods included;

  • making available family planning services, information and technology; especially for the world’s poorest in the 11 countries in which the U.S. had a strategic interest,
  • immediately providing family planning services and materials based on current technology, while
  • encouraging research into cost-effective, durable, safe and acceptable methods amongst federal agencies with increased funds made available for annual research grants,
  • integrating fertility reduction programmes in established primary health services delivered at village level,
  • commercializing supply of the Pill, i.e. making it available over the counter without a clinical examination or prescription as in the West.

Fair trade as a driver of development

Nowhere in NSSM200 and ensuing action plans is the option of fair trade considered as a potential driver of development. It would have been logical given that the Committee acknowledged the causal relationship between industrialization and development on the one hand and falling mortality and birth rates on the other. Post-War Britain is given as an example of a country which made the ‘demographic transition’ from a position of falling mortality rates (as a result of availability medicines) driving rising fertility rates to, later, falling mortality with a simultaneously declining fertility rate (as a result of development and the smaller families it allowed.)

The purchase price of minerals paid to LDCs is mentioned only in the context of the detrimental effect on American interests any rises in commodity prices would have if suppliers in LDCs were to form a cartel as had recently happened with oil suppliers. The development of commodity-supplying countries flowing from higher earnings from their natural resources was thus deferred.

Kissinger is emphatic, without citing any authorities, that the relationship between development and falling birth rates is not fully understood and it becomes clear he is preparing the ground for mass fertility reduction as the only effective intervention, a sort of war on fertility. He is adamant that even if the universal target for LDCs of two children per family by 2000 were reached, the population explosion and its adverse effects could not be avoided without such an intervention.

Imported corruption: Another barrier to development

In addition to unfair trade, the present-day LDCs are further disadvantaged by massive losses of tax revenues. Yves Engler in his essay Canadian firms rob Africa as NGOs preach charity in  Pambazuka News discusses the extent of the financial loss caused by tax evasion by  Canadian investors.  Engler states that 40% of international mining countries are domiciled in Canada. He cites a $1.5 billion potash mine in Congo Brazzaville which avoided taxes by paying officials a $100,000 bribe; and Barrick Gold in Tanzania found guilty of avoiding $41.25 million in taxes on profits of over $400 million.

To form an idea of the magnitude of these losses to LDCs, consider the foreign grants made to neighbouring Uganda. $41 million is more than the direct budget support for FY2016/17 pledged by Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Austria and the Netherlands for the water, health and justice law and order sectors. The amount exceeds Uganda’s projected expenditure on the Tourism, Trade and Industry sector in 2016/17. This means aid merely replaces some of the income lost through corruption exported to LDCs.

Of the 4l countries party to the OECD Convention on Combating Foreign Bribery, only 4 actively enforce the convention and resolve major cases. Even those four prefer to reach out of court settlements which, if they are secret, can only fuel local corruption.

Many exporters of corruption are countries ranking high on Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index, for example firms in Sweden the third cleanest, New Zealand the fourth and Norway the 5th in 2015, were found to be guilty of paying bribes to government officials in the developing world in return for various operating privileges. Canada ranks number 10 in transaction cleanliness.

During the initial discussion of the NSSM, officials noted world food production was keeping pace with if not exceeding population growth. In other words, there was no crisis at the time. A fair income from the large and (at the time) growing market in commodities, especially if value had been added, would have enabled LDCs to accomplish that which Kissinger said would be possible only after a few generations from 1974 namely, by the 21st century: African countries would have been able to cover their own requirements for farm inputs, food, medicines and education programmes.

Consequently there would have been no food shortages, there would have been greater industrial development including value addition to commodities and the demographic transition – a drop in population growth would have followed. But fair trade would also have meant curtailing consumption in the United States and Europe. Some were aware of this. A senior White House staffer commented in writing in 1967,

“The implications of all this are very concrete for wealthy nations like the United States and Western European powers. These countries must face the explosive [emphasis added] political questions of paying taxes to help developing nations. Will we pay higher prices for imported goods from these nations? Will we be willing to work out some alteration of our trading policies to guarantee a fair and stable price for agriculture products and raw material? [Emphasis added]

Another point on which the NSDM model fails is in its assumption that heightened and increasing consumption in the U.S.A. and other highly developed countries was both a sustainable proposition and an inoculation against the social ills predicted for LDCs. The world financial crisis of 2008 proved it was neither. In fact many of the projected consequences of rapid population expansion for LDCs have now manifested in the U.S.A.; gross income inequality, chronic unemployment and involuntary part-time workers (the under-employed) and a stagnating standard of living amongst many, all of which contributed to the 2016 presidential election result.

Rampant consumption has not protected the U.S.A. from child hunger, juvenile delinquency, petty thievery, organized brigandry (read gangs), factionalism (racial tension, terrorism), and communal massacre (read mass shootings) either.

Diplomacy

Then there was the matter of the Catholics. The Vatican’s position was that “all directly contraceptive practices are morally wrong.” In order to win over those whose cultures (read religion) presented a barrier to ‘anti-natalism’ the Administration sought guidance from Pope Paul’s 1967 Encyclical on population: The Development of Peoples, (or Populorum Progressio). [11] Special Assistant to the Secretary of State on Population Matters, P. Claxton, made the following analysis:

  1. Paul VI acknowledges the impact population growth has on development as follows:

 “…accelerated demographic increase adds its own difficulties to the problems of development: the size of the population increases more rapidly than available resources, and things are found to have apparently reached an impasse.”

  1.  Claxton goes on to say the encyclical,

“states plainly (“it is certain”) that public authorities can intervene both “by favoring the availability of appropriate information” and “by adopting suitable measures.”

  1. Claxton concludes first that,

“The statement that public authorities can intervene is new and potentially of wide applicability. It should open the way for United Nations, national, state, and municipal authorities to provide appropriate information—presumably, but not plainly, meaning birth control information.”

  1. Claxton then concludes,

“They may also adopt “suitable measures”—a phrase perhaps intentionally left vague but apparently intended to be different from the “radical measures” that are rejected and may well be interpreted to include provision of some kind of fertility control program. There are two limitations on the “suitable measures:” (a) They must be in conformity with “the moral law,” which is not defined, but may refer to the standing doctrine on birth control—or may not; and (b) They must respect the rightful freedom of married couples, which is not a material limitation in practice.”

  1. And finally he states the encyclical goes further than Vatican II statements on birth control saying what was ‘new’ was (1) the faithful were urged to consider, in deciding to add to their families, the potential effect on the welfare of existing children, the health of the mother and the impact on the community; (2) the decision is to be made with full knowledge  and (3) is a matter for the consciences of future parents (enlightened by God’s law).

It was decided in future,

we should avoid the language of “birth control” in favor of “family planning” or “responsible parenthood,” with the emphasis being placed on child spacing in the interests of the health of child and mother and the well-being of the family and community.”

In short, Special Assistant Claxton’s interpretation of Populorum Progressio was that, in the light of the looming population crisis, the Vatican had softened its stand on birth control and was in fact willing to consider suitable measures as long as they are governed by ‘moral law’ – which the Special Assistant said did not necessarily refer to the standing Vatican II doctrine – and respected the rights of married couples to make their own decisions.

Claxton’s spin on Populorum Progressio was debunked the following year when Pope Paul VI published Humane Vitae (or Human Life), upholding the Church’s ban on artificial contraceptives. Claxton had to correct a misleading impression of the Vatican’s position that he had given in an interview with Time magazine.

Development: the Vatican’s view

What was left out of Claxton’s analysis of Populorum Progressio is equally relevant and important. In it, Pope Paul puts the population crisis in context. First he gives the background: exploitative colonial agricultural practices led to the emergence of a number of single cash-crop exporting nations with only one major source of income. These commodities, bought at low prices anyway, are further subject to significant fluctuations in price.

It will be remembered that in the Congo (now DRC) Congolese were prohibited from engaging in any economic activities alternative to rubber-tapping on pain of having their hand’s amputated. In Uganda the British and American allies had a monopoly on buying and selling Ugandan cotton and coffee. The penalty for African growers adding value to their cotton by ginning it was 5 years in prison or Shs500,000 (the exchange rate with the British pound was 1:1).

To correct the imbalance, Paul VI states, fair trade alone, is insufficient as long as it is defined by transactions freely entered in to but by parties unequal in negotiating power:

when two parties are in very unequal positions, their mutual consent alone does not guarantee a fair contract [emphasis mine]; …this principle was set down with regard to a just wage for the individual worker; but it should be applied with equal force to contracts made between nations: trade relations can no longer be based solely on the principle of free, unchecked competition, for it very often creates an economic dictatorship. Free trade can be called just only when it conforms to the demands of social justice.”

“…Now in trade relations between the developing and the highly developed economies there is a great disparity in their overall situation and in their freedom of action. In order that international trade be human and moral, social justice requires that it restore to the participants a certain equality of opportunity.

“Here again international agreements on a broad scale can help a great deal. They could establish general norms for regulating prices, promoting production facilities, and favouring certain infant industries. Isn’t it plain to everyone that such attempts to establish greater justice in international trade would be of great benefit to the developing nations, and that they would produce lasting results?”

The Vatican’s holistic approach to human development is supported by the initial reasoning of NSSM200 which is that underdevelopment and its associated socio-economic consequences is inextricably linked to and probably causes high rates of population growth. Populorum Progressio states that the consumerism of highly developed countries, made possible by their exploitation of what became vulnerable countries, is at the root of underdevelopment. The logical conclusion had to be that in order to prevent high fertility rates in the future there had to be less consumerism and exploitation by highly developed countries. Birth control is necessary but not sufficient for development.

Implementation plans

In July 1976 the first annual report of the International Population Task Force (set up to implement NSDM 200)[15] was presented to President Gerald Ford. By this time policies had crystallized. Countries were now divided into two categories; the ‘Big 13’ major population countries and the rest. The former were sub-divided into the committed (India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Philippines, Thailand, Mexico, Colombia) and non-committed (Brazil, Egypt, Turkey, Nigeria and Ethiopia. The latter two, Nigeria and Ethiopia, were seen as being oblivious to the issues.)

For the committed, leaders and opinion leaders would be encouraged to take ownership of the family planning project which would then be incorporated in primary health care extension services from village level upwards.

 “We must nevertheless be selective and low-key in our approaches, lest population programs otherwise be seen as primarily serving U.S. interests rather than those of other countries. That is why it is so important that the LDCs take more of a lead on population issues at international conferences and at home.”

Peer pressure to have fewer children would be created by co-opting opinion leaders at village level and training them in advocacy. In the original NSSM200 it was proposed that promising allies from amongst leading politicians and opinion leaders be flown to UN HQ for training.

NSDM implementation partnerships with the international community

The World Bank, WHO, UNDP, UNICEF, the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and NGOs were to play a central role in implementing fertility reduction in the developing world.

The NSDM Task Force (which was all American) was concerned UNFPA was at the time focused on general consciousness-raising at the expense of family planning service delivery. It resolved that 80% of UNFPA’s budget should now go on specific country programmes,

“We recommend that we use our influence through our U.N. delegation and in donor and recipient nation capitals to seek such a shift.”

UNFPA was also to be encouraged to shift away from financing academic research by agencies such as FAO, ILO, UNESCO, UNICEF, and WHO, and focus on practical programmes.

“As a result, we support the current trend in UNFPA to administer more of its own projects and the related need for increased staff and monitoring capability. We recommend, however, that UNFPA maintain liaison with the SAs [specialized agencies] to ensure that SA projects support fertility reduction.”

The U.S.A. government grant to UNFPA was to be significantly increased.

Operations were to commence in 8 major population countries in which the U.S.A. was not yet implementing family planning. It was proposed funds be provided for advocacy for fertility reduction by IPPF and other NGOs in those countries “roughly according to the directions we outline….”

The World Bank’s potential participation was limited by the fact it was not mandated to finance consumables like contraceptives, however consultants were engaged to propose a role for the Bank in the fertility reduction effort. It was also recommended the Bank work with UNFPA to fund requests for assistance from developing countries.

Research into population control

Funding was to be provided for bio-medical research. The goal was to;

  • find new methods such as reversible sterilization and once-monthly methods,
  • study the relationship between nutritional status and fertility,
  • field-test internationally promising new family planning methods.

Provision for researching and understanding the demographic transition which sees birth rates fall as a result of development was not made at this point even though Kissinger mentions at least twice that he does not understand it.

The U.S.A.’s commitment to LDC development is questionable given the modest assistance proposed: some funds were to be made available for rural development to increase household incomes and lead eventually to a pattern of smaller families. The interventions were limited to Food-for-Work type activities and PL-480 which involves auctioning American farm surpluses in aid-recipient countries and applying the proceeds as aid locally. This guarantees American farmers a market for their surpluses while suppressing demand for local produce.

Conversely, the magnitude of American commitment to fertility reduction in LDCs is apparent from its persistence over a period of decades; the level of resource mobilization (promoting the Bucharest Conference and committing, by 1969, $125 million per year) [17]; co-option of U.N. agencies; the participation of their president as a spokesman for the project and its willingness to influence U.N. agencies.

The World Population Day was instituted with the aim of propagating population control thinking. The Bucharest Conference followed with high-level negotiations with LDC governments carried out in preparation.

The fertility wars

Most of sub-Saharan Africa has been the grateful recipient of preventative health care programmes; MMR vaccinations, treated mosquito nets, guinea worm eradication and HIV/Aids and TB control. They have a direct impact on infant and neonatal mortality which in turn are drivers of high birth rates. The Catholic Church is a major and the oldest health services provider (since before independence) with 58 hospitals, 83 health centers, 311 dispensaries, and 18 medical training schools in Kenya alone.

Elements of early NSSM200 discussions are currently visible in the availability of one-type-suits-all contraceptive pills over the counter in East Africa. Diplomatic language has evolved further than in the 1970s – fertility reduction is now rights-based: reproductive rights. Religious and cultural sensitivity has fared badly as under-age girls may be given access to birth control without the knowledge or consent of their parents.

Kenya 2014

In 2014 the Kenya Conference of Catholic Bishops (KCCB), informed by the Kenya Catholic Doctors’ Association, issued a public statement claiming that the new tetanus vaccine against Maternal Neonatal Tetanus for women and girls donated to Kenya by UNICEF and WHO was a clandestine mass-sterilization agent, and warned the public to refuse it. The outburst was all the more resonant as the Church is known to be slow to react to anything, especially allegations. Roma Mora, Rome delays. Rome is prudent. Only a situation perceived to be potentially directly life-threatening could have elicited from them the reaction that it did.

Similar allegations of clandestine mass sterilization had come out of Northern Nigeria in 2003. There were links to American foreign policy in the Middle East. The polio vaccine was rejected at the urging of political and religious leaders and unfortunately, Uganda, polio free for a brief period, was re-infected by a traveler from West Africa.

In Kenya, samples of the tetanus vaccine were purloined and passed on to the bishops’ conference. They were distributed for testing in Kenya and South Africa. The results showed the presence of beta-HCG, a hormone which when combined with the tetanus vaccine either suppresses conception or causes the abortion of fetuses. The vaccine was available to 2.3 million girls and women of child-bearing age, 14 – 49 years (the age of consent in Kenya is 18.) The bishops issued a warning to the faithful (40% of Kenya’s population) against accepting the treatment.

Government’s response was predictably vigorous as coverage of target populations with vaccination is a major concern of the health sector and is relied on as a development indicator. It usually creeps up only incrementally and any discouragement of participation in vaccination programmes would have long term effects.

The Minister of Health issued a denial, stating the samples were tested and approved by WHO and there was no beta-HCG present in them. The bishops called it a lie, another first. Being the conduit through which an alleged abortifacient was reaching the population must have seemed like a huge responsibility in which, if their independent lab tests were correct, they were culpable.

CNBS.com reported that the head of the Kenya Coalition of Catholic Doctors testified before Parliament to the effect that beta-HCG would not occur naturally in the tetanus vaccine and is not required in its manufacture. Dr Ngare Muhame cited irregular protocols. The campaign was launched at a reception at a swanky hotel and the occasion became known to the majority of health sector workers only after the fact; the drugs were transported to vaccination centres under police guard and administered mainly by personnel independent of the health centres. All remainders were taken away at the close of each exercise. Furthermore, the programme involved five shots of vaccine rather than the usual three. It was stated that when a similar 5-shot regime was used in Mexico, Nicaragua and the Philippines, miscarriages began to happen three years later.

The KCCB found external support in Dr. Donna Harrison, an Ob/Gyn and executive director of the American Association of Prolife Obstetricians and Gynecologists who has experience of testifying before Congress and the Food and Drug Administration as an expert witness. She confirmed the science: beta-HCG can be used as an abortifacient when combined with the tetanus vaccine and there could be no reason for beta-HCG to be present in the vaccine. If the vaccine was deliberately adulterated she said,

“…it would be like lacing ice cream with LSD,…It’s that level of wrongness, [and it] raises huge concerns about population control agenda and genocide.”

The argument escalated to unprecedented heights. Government claimed to have carried out its own tests with negative results: a distortion of the truth and misleading, according to the bishops. Government, they said, tested only (unadulterated) samples taken from the general medical stores and not the batch in contention.

UNICEF pronounced the KCDA and KCCB beta-HCG positive test results ‘misinformation’ and took out newspaper advertisements to assure the public the vaccine was safe. In a bid for the moral high ground they lamented that the scandal was undermining faith in the health service. The BBC correspondent covered this angle, reporting the vaccine to be ‘safe and certified’ and pointing out the dangers of discouraging compliance. Tetanus had a mortality rate of one child a day at the time.

Allegations of intimidation of Kenyan doctors corroborating the KCDA claims surfaced. Eventually it was agreed to carry out joint tests.

The final report by KCCB issued in February 2015 stated that;

  • the Kenyan Government had withdrawn from the Joint Committee and joint testing was not done,
  • the Kenyan Government had tested regular vaccines from regular batches and presented the negative results for those as proof  that the vaccines in the contentious batch were not adulterated.
  • 30% of the samples obtained from the new campaign and tested by the KCCB were positive for beta-HCG.

The joint denials by UNICEF and WHO and a collaborating Kenyan leadership were disingenuous in as far as they required the public to believe what they said just because they said it. To insist the vaccine was sourced from ‘pre-qualified’ suppliers and therefore safe, means nothing. If an attempt were being made to sterilize women clandestinely, the parties responsible would naturally begin by compromising the pre-qualified suppliers.

Going back to 1968, in Humanae Vitae, Paul VI asks,

“Who will prevent public authorities from favoring what they believe to be the most effective contraceptive methods and from mandating that everyone must use them, whenever they consider it necessary?”

There is a Luganda saying,

“Whenever he who has been bitten by a snake sees a centipede….”

Given what we now know about the lengths to which the powerful will go to further their own interests at the expense of the vulnerable, and that there is a recent precedent for eugenics and clandestine sterilization in the United States and that Palestinian and other children die in their thousands on live TV and still remain invisible; KCCB, KCDA and particularly the whistle-blower ought to be commended for their due diligence.
