Idle No More: New Shift to an Indigenous Reality

Idle No More: New Shift to an Indigenous Reality

By Hwaa Irfan

The Mau Mau of Kenya did not wait for the dawn of a New Age to lay claim to justice. Tortured and brutalized by the British in the 1950s, members of the Mau Mau have literally confronted Britain with its colonial past and present when lawyer Martyn Day departed from London’s High Court with hopeful news. Prior to that Britain threw a disclaimer stating that they are not responsible for the acts of others, despite their continuance to this day.

London’s High Court ruled on October 5 2012 that three living, but now elderly members of the Mau Mau who were seriously tortured (one was castrated) can proceed with their claims against the British government. This means, for the first time ever, victims of British colonialism can due Britain!

“This is an historic judgment that will reverberate around the world,” Day said.

“There will undoubtedly be victims of colonial torture from Malaya to Yemen, from Cyprus to Palestine, who will be reading this judgment with great care.”

Day was welcomed by supporters waiting in expectation outside the High Court, including the 3 non-English speaking octogenarian plaintiffs, Wambugu Wa Nyingi, Jane Muthoni Mara, and Paulo Muoka Nzili who were beaten, raped, and castrated. Joy is joy amongst the indigenous who do not wait to express it! Day’s news back in Nairobi was responded by dance, and nostalgic ballads from the struggle for independence.

Britain of course launched an appeal, which was turned down on October 26.

Connections are not being made, as our colonial global elite clamp down on their citizens around the world stripping hard won rights, and drive thousands into poverty while they gamble with the billions made by the working population – the 95%!

It was in the 1940s that Kenya’s resistance movement, the Mau Mau had gained great support across the nation. Those who died must be turning over in their graves as their country under U.S imperialism take control of Somalia. Under British rule, thousands of Kenyans were driven from their fertile land, and it is Britain that led the recent global bout of and grab in Africa and elsewhere.

Under a pledge of oath, the Mau Mau swore to fight for their independence, and fed into the forests to do so.

By the mid-1950s, 150,000 Kikuyu were detained without trial, and up to 1.5 million displaced, and 30 Europeans killed along with British Kikuyu loyalists who betrayed their homeland.  The kind of treatment meted out by the British was described by one female survivor, Mara. She was 15 at the time and incarcerated at the notorious Gatithi camp. On  the second day four guards pinned her to the ground: one pushed her legs apart and kept them apart with spiked army boots, another kicked a glass bottle of hot water up her vagina.

Another survivor, Paulo Muoka Nzili was castrated with pliers used to castrate cows.

The new puppet government after independence sustained a ban on the Mau Mau and drove the survivors underground. The ban was not lifted until 2003 when most had died.

Since 2009, Katie Engelhart reports they have been trying t get their case heard!

The British lawyer who succeeded in doing so, Martyn Day had this to say:

 “You know, we [Brits] hold ourselves out as being pretty good, fair, decent, honest sorts of people,”

“We look at the Germans and the Japanese and other people who have done really terrible things. We hold ourselves out to be rather different. But actually, one recognizes through cases like this that we have sides to our character that are … not quite as bad, but pretty bad. It’s important that we understand that.”

As many around the world prepared for the dawn of a New Age – the transition from 13 to a new B’aqtun (December 21-22, 2012), many indigenous including the Mayans have been preparing to not uplift humanity, but their own communities as well and that includes rights on a more holistic basis. They are a people who have been faced with what the rest of the world has been experiencing, and has yet to experience.

‘Idle No More’ is the name of the recent round in struggle, which has been taking place in Ottawa, Canada, where the largest student march the world has ever seen took place in 2011-2012. Their mission. . .
“Idle No More calls on all people to join in a revolution which honours and fulfils Indigenous sovereignty which protects the land and water. Colonization continues through attacks to Indigenous rights and damage to the land and water. We must repair these violations; live the spirit and intent of the treaty relationship, work towards justice in action, and protect Mother Earth.

December 10th was the date that indigenous people and allies stood in solidarity across Canada to assert Indigenous sovereignty and to work towards a sustainable, renewable future. The challenge is Desmarai is controlled Canada – the family that owns Power Corporation,  foreign corporations in Europe and China, the French-speaking Quebec media as well as a control over every Canadian Prime Minister since Pierre Trudeau with close ties to the Rothschilds, The Rockefellers, Spanish royalty, The Council on Foreign Relations, the Trilateral Commission, and the Bilderberg Group. However, Idle No More, “….recognize that there may be backlash, and encourage people to stay strong and united in spirit.”

One non-native participant n 21st had this to say about the 21st:

“That was the most amazing day I have ever been a part of. We Gathered in Peace. We Gathered In Solidarity. We Stood Proud and Tall. We Spoke in Truths. December 21st 2012, to me, will always be remembered as, the Day I stood up, with all of you, in a We rally. We did this. We set the stage for the world to listen and really hear us. Pride, Peace, Solidarity, will forever be in my Heart, and Mind when I look back upon this day. We, the Grassroots, our Leadership & Non Natives shared a stage, shared our ideas.”

That day Idle No More blocked 17 highways outside of Sault Ste Marie causing disruption to those seeking to go about their affairs. In a country that has achieved its sovereignty through invasion followed by various methods of ethnic cleansing like Australia, it is not only the indigenous who are seeking their identity, but the occupying societies as well, and this is fully recognized by those claiming the right to exist. The elite not only alienated the indigenous, but they also alienated those who profited for them, and alienated the environment as well.

That day, First Nations from around the Salish Sea joined in solidarity including drumming, singing and dancing.

Malians Protest in Support of What Government*

Malians Protest in Support of What Government*

 

Hundreds of Malians have taken to the streets in the capital Bamako to support the government which encounters a rebellion in the northern part of the crisis-hit West African country Press TV reports

The protest happened five days after the United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warned against a hasty military intervention in northern Mali, saying it could lead to a humanitarian crisis as if there isn’t one already!
“I am profoundly aware that if a military intervention in the north is not well conceived and executed, it could worsen an already fragile humanitarian situation and also result in severe human rights abuses,” Ban said, which is telling in itself

On October 13, the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a resolution that gave the AU and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) 45 days to present the details of a plan for a military intervention in Mali.

Chaos broke out in the West African country when Malian President Amadou Toumani Toure was toppled in a military coup on March 22. The coup leaders said they mounted the coup in response to the government’s inability to contain the two-month-old Tuareg rebellion in the north of the country.

However, in the wake of the coup d’état, the Tuareg rebels took control of the entire northern desert region, but the Ansar Dine extremists pushed them aside and wrested control of all the northern desert regions.

What is missing frm the picture is that Amadou Sanogo, the Malian army captain who overthrew the civilian government in the wake of the Tuareg offensive, was trained by the U.S. military. Sanogo attended the Defense Language Institute in 2005 and 2007, a U.S. Army intelligence program in 2008, and an officer-training course in 2010. At least that explains Ban Ki Moons response and prior warning, and why hundreds and not thousands are not making a rallying call!

“This coup d’état cannot be justified, all the more so in that it has come about on the eve of an election that would have permitted the election of a new president,” said the Party for National Renaissance, in a statement from its president, Tiébilé Dramé, a former foreign minister. “It has set us back decades.”

The U.S and UN are adept at setting countries back decades, so why Mali?

Once famed for its popular trade route Timbuktu, Mali could still serve as much again but in the interest of the trade arm of global governance, providing easy means of transporting exploited natural resources out of Africa to the West. In fact the sovereign wealth has become just as important as before to colonial players in the international financial system the flow of which this time round would be more concentrated in favour of the global elite.

In addition there are the natural resources of Mali itself though badly managed due to corruption and coups, which provides a golden opportunity for Western exploitation – Ghana and Mali together account for 5.8% of total world gold production!

Though seemingly insignificant, gold is gold and the new financial system designed to ensure that wealth flows to the global elite is built upon gold! However there is a little problem with credibility. This would help to feather the nest of the global fund crisis at least until that runs out again!

Dirty Politics: The Ethical Slip

Dirty Politics: The Ethical Slip

 

By Hwaa Irfan

 

The abnormal rain clouds that have blanketed the skies since President Mursi made the Constitutional Declaration that was an emergency attempt to secure an insecure-able situation i.e. to secure the country’s main institutions until a Parliament was in place depicted the intentions of those behind the backlash to Mursi’s declaration. They are the kind of people one could not trust one’s life with, because as the days have progressed with each successive violent protest it became more and more evident the extent of the corruption. Pivotal to the Big Lie, has been Egyptian media that climaxed with the death of 118 youth and 126 injured outside of the Presidential

An injured pro-Mursi protester

Most of the population is rightly confused about what has been going on for the last 10 days, because the people behind the initial protests in Tahrir Square could be counted with two hands. Most of the population has not been party to protests that have grown in successive weeks after the first embarrassing protest, which became reliant on ordinary members of the public whose only preoccupation was more pay from a country that has a huge deficit in the billions. With time those forces galvanized their different factions over the draft constitution. They argued consistently that the Constitutional Assembly was not representative and was dominated by Islamists, yet according to non-Islamists who were apart of the Assembly, the Assembly was representative, the draft is comprehensive and stands up to international standards. A sister who has read the draft, a Muslimah, not pro or against Mursi, and not a supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood cannot see what the fuss is about, with the exception of one article out of 234 which positions Arabic as the language of education.

The so-called opposition pulled out at the last moment, repeating their self interested concerns, therefore removing themselves. If their real concern was their country, and the population as a whole, they would have stuck it out. Their self removal was a formal attempt to stall the process, to make it appear illegitimate, hence to make Mursi illegitimate despite the fact that he was democratically elected by a slim majority no less than President Obama. Aware of the extent of the corruption throughout Mursi attempted to speed up the Constitutional process in order to bring in an elected Parliament.

The accusations, and lies flying back and forward, inflamed by the media both print and T.V., thus inflaming some, not all of the populous, but enough to come across to the international media, as a substantial rejection of President Mursi. Amidst the media coverage were reports of Muslim Brotherhood property being burnt down. Calling one locality to find out if it was true that the Muslim Brotherhood headquarters was burnt down, the answer was no, it was not even attacked. The Judges Club has also been used, and prevented from carryout their duties, but in truth have taken no political sides. Judge Zakareya Abdel-Aziz, former head of the Judges’ Club calls on leading groups to discourage the use of violence by youth, and calls for a consensus-building initiative by Constituent Assembly members and the National Salvation Front to negotiate ways forward.

The name of the revolution is used, but those who have polarized the nation is used, but they do not represent the youth who began the revolution. So sickened by the tactic employed, some of come out and have named those behind what has been happening, namely Muhammed El-Baradei – who many ordinary citizens believe is behind the violence, and surprisingly ‘Amr Moussa which includes the violence… under such circumstances it is easy to blame those one wants to remove from the political scene. Accusations of sedition and espinoage has been made against El-Baradei, ‘Amr Moussa and Hamdeen Sabbahi, Constitution Party Wafd Party president Al-Sayed al-Badawy and Judges Club head Ahmed al-Zend. The accusation curiously enough was made on a CFR blog by Elliott Abrams.

President Mursi expressed in a televised interview that having been a member of the opposition for the longest time, he felt it was healthy, but naturally is against vandalism and violence. Mursi also expressed his intentions without underlining the corruption issue, which is reflected in the violence. The sweeping power that Mursi has been accused of stealing is totally tied to the Referendum, which not only sets a time limit on those powers, but also if passed by the people, would reduce the powers that Egyptian presidents have had for far too long.

A person is judged by their intentions by our Creator, and those who have made the accusations would have  only had to wait until mid-December at which time, if successful, there would be a new constitution, a constitution that Mursi cannot over-ride as SCAF did to the constitution that went to public referendum in March 2011.

In the meantime much has been said, much has been written, and much of it has been untrue…  The fact that a foreign newspaper, a reputable journal sees the game plan even as the so-called opposition, the National Salvation Front, which sounds familiar think of (Iraq, Libya, Syria) persists in expediting a scenario that has no appreciation of democracy, is not interested in the choices of the country as a whole, and will lead to ongoing political strife for a long time to come. Below is what that journal wrote as an editorial – a statement of what stands at risk:

Egypt: Tug of War

Morsi is determined polls be held as soon as possible to reaffirm the popular mandate which he still thinks he has

Editorial – The Guardian

December 08, 2012 “The Guardian’ – –  As the crisis in Egypt develops, it is becoming increasingly clear what it is not about. It is not about the proposed constitution, many of whose provisions opposition members put their signatures to, before changing their minds and walking out of the drafting committee. Negotiations on the contentious clauses have been offered and rejected. Nor is it about the date of the referendum, which the Egyptian justice minister, Ahmed Mekki, offered to postpone. Again, this was rejected. Nor even is it about the temporary but absolute powers that the Egyptian president, Mohamed Morsi, assumed for himself – which will lapse the moment the referendum is held whatever the result.

Urging the opposition to shun dialogue, Mohamed ElBaradei said that Morsi had lost his legitimacy. So the target of the opposition National Salvation Front is not the constitution, or the emergency decree, but Morsi himself. What follows is a power battle in which the aim is to unseat a democratically elected president, and to prevent a referendum and fresh parliamentary elections being held, both of which Islamists stand a good chance of winning. Morsi, for his part, is determined that both polls be held as soon as possible to reaffirm the popular mandate which he still thinks he has.

In weighing who occupies the moral high ground, let us start with what happened on Wednesday night. That is when the crisis, sparked by Morsi’s decree when he was at the height of his domestic popularity over the role he played in stopping the Israeli assault on Gaza, turned violent. The Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice party sanctioned a violent assault on a peaceful encampment of opposition supporters outside the presidential palace. But lethal force came later, and Islamists were its principle victims. Five of the six people killed in Cairo were members of the Brotherhood and one came from the opposition. Two more Islamists were killed outside the capital. Brotherhood offices were attacked up and down the country, while no other party offices were touched. This does not fit the opposition’s narrative to be the victims of Islamist violence. Both sides are victims of violence and the real perpetrators are their common enemy.

Morsi undoubtedly made grave mistakes. In pre-empting a decision by the constitutional court to derail his constitution, his decree was cast too wide. The final draft of the constitution has many faults, although none are set in stone. The opposition on the other hand has never accepted the results of freely held elections, parliamentary or presidential, and is doing everything to stop new ones being held.

President Mursi refused to back down on the decree holding grave concerns that stands at the heart of his ethics. He asked his supporters, not to challenge the protesters. It cannot be validated that e.g. the Muslim Brotherhood have indeed participated in the violence, because it is well known from January 25th 2010 that anyone can mingle in, dress-up, and appear to be what whoever wants to see. It is a ruse that Israelis are known for, yet here the country finds itself, uprooting what has been deemed a great constitutional that covers the rights of all members of society, but those who stand to fear the most are those behind the entrenched corruption  have the greatest reason to turn the country upside down.

Much originated from Britain, in terms of organizations and institutions, i.e. tentacles that has the ability to reach into any society around the world and to manipulate it. One of the arms of the tentacles is the Council for Foreign Relations, CFR, although projected as an independent U.S. entity.

In 2009, a CFR document entitled the Contingency Planning Memorandum No. 4: Political Instability in Egypt” authored by Steven Cook. This document is not supposed to be reproduced in any form or part….

It was written a time when they deemed the 60 regime as resilient, but with a political leader, i.e. Hosni Mubarak, failing health, and political activism as the domain of the elite. The support was for the former regime, which would continue through Gamal Mubarak.

The proposal was to manage any crisis, by reducing any budding Islamist power,  to lend support to the country’s military, to support financially improved standard of living for the people the infrastructure, health, and education. However the overall general feeling is that successful power bid from Islamists presents a threat to their interests in the region.

To help in the above goal, has been an outsider, but a citizen, Muhammed El Baradei, the self proclaimed voice piece of the opposition. In a country that places status to a high position rather than caliber that is coherent with the principles of the revolutionary youth, former head of the UN Nuclear body International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Retired, El-Baradei is on the Board of Trustees of the International Crisis Group. The ICG was even concerned about his detention days after the January 25 revolt and issued a statement:

“His detention has no credible basis. It also will not serve Egypt’s interests at this critical juncture”, says Crisis Group President Louise Arbour. “In a situation as tense as this, repression and abuse can only further inflame the situation. Rather than resort to repression, the authorities should heed demands of the population for dramatic political, social and economic transformation.”

The ICG is financed by Carnegie, Ford Foundation, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Rockefeller Brothers Fund, Morgan Stanley, Deutsche Bank Group, Soros Fund Management LLC, Chevron, Royal Dutch Shell and Open Society (George Soros) to the tune of U.S$15mn annually has championed many NATO wars towards the European based One Government world where personal and domestic sovereignty will be terms not even found in the dictionary!

Yet, it is President Mursi who compromises on a problem that will remain unless the corruption that claims rights is uprooted, when the people are not even interested in their arguments at a time when paying someone to wreak havoc is easily done!
