PAY-Oil-spill

An indigenous Amazonian tribe in Peru seized a grounded military helicopter and kidnapped eight public officials last Sunday, after two recent oil spills on their ancestral land.

The “Wampis” are holding the officials hostage until the government agrees to clean up their polluted land and rivers.

Hostages include three employees of Petroperu (the state-owned energy company responsible for the spills) four officials with the OEFA (Peru’s version of the American EPA) and one official from the Energy and Mines Ministry.

How GMO Corn Could Be Contributing to the “Leaky Gut” Epidemic

March 10, 2016 at 1:08 am




Bt insecticide kills bugs by “breaking open their stomachs.” Monsanto has genetically engineered this insecticide into our corn. Could it be busting holes in our guts as well?

It has been estimated that nearly 80 percent of the U.S. population has some degree of leaky gut syndrome – a condition where holes in our intestines let food particles and toxins into our blood stream. The medical-industrial complex does not recognize it as a legitimate condition, but alternative healthcare practitioners claim “leaky gut” is the main culprit behind food allergies, auto-immune disorders (like lupus), eczema, multiple sclerosis, and even diabetes and cancer.

Author of Seeds of Deception Jeffrey Smith explains how Monsanto’s Bt corn – which is in the vast majority of processed foods and animal products in America – is literally leaving holes in our guts:

How to Make Your Own Charcoal

Here’s that awesome Primitive Technology man again showing us how to make charcoal from scratch (wood). He uses sharp rocks to chop the wood into small pieces, puts them in a pile, covers it with leaves and kindling, covers the mound with mud, and then burns the wood under it until it becomes charcoal:

Here’s that “crazy” Primitive Technology man making more stuff from scratch in the wild. First he shows us how to weave baskets using nothing but his hands, palm leaves and lawyer cane, and then makes a stone hatchet with nothing but rocks, sticks and his hands. Pretty impressive.

Why I Sometimes Wish I’d Had an Abortion

March 7, 2016 at 4:53 pm




422508_10151380249240106_318511931_nIn a previous blog post, I wrote about how having a baby changed my mind about abortion. The hardship of four years of unplanned parenthood made me change my former staunch pro-life position.

But in this post, I want to be even more explicit. It’s not just that I now support women’s right to choose as some sort of abstract ideology. I actually often regret having a child myself. Especially lately.

I recently posted on Facebook about four abused, neglected siblings who are up for adoption as a package deal. Who knows, maybe their parents were great and CPS just kidnapped them for no reason. But that’s beside the point. The point is there are basically zero happy, healthy, financially-prepared, functioning families out there willing to adopt four kids.

As with other indigenous peoples around the world, the native Lenca people of Honduras are being pillaged and sacrificed to civilization

Berta Caceres in the Rio Blanco region of western Honduras where she, COPINH (the Council of Popular and Indigenous Organizations of Honduras) and the people of Rio Blanco have maintained a two year struggle to halt construction on the Agua Zarca Hydroelectric project, that poses grave threats to local environment, river and indigenous Lenca people from the region. She gathered with members of COPINH and Rio Blanco during a meeting remembering community members killed during the two year struggle.

Berta Cáceres, the indigenous Honduran woman who saved her people by scaring away the world’s largest dam builder was assassinated yesterday.

According to Global Witness, Honduras is the deadliest country for environmental activists in the world, especially indigenous environmental activists.

Since the US-backed military coup in 2009, almost a third of the country’s land has been stolen and earmarked for mining projects. The new government has approved hundreds of dams around the country to fuel the operations.

One of those dams, near the village of Rio Blanco, would’ve cut off food and water to hundreds of Lenca people.

Circumcision is Torture and Child Abuse

March 2, 2016 at 8:06 pm

The people behind the knife should be behind bars for life




thumb Baby boys are being brutally tortured every 25 seconds in the United States.

Let’s not mince words about it. That’s what circumcision is – torture, sexual assault, genital mutilation, unconscionable child abuse, and possibly the worst violation of human rights in history.

The mother of an only-daughter, I really had no reason to research circumcision I had no idea of the horrors it entailed until recently. One of the moms in our peaceful-parenting play-date group enlightened me in the park last week. She sent me a few links, and I dove in. What a can of worms…

This method appears to be even faster and easier than the primitive drill method by an Australian man Return To Now featured a few days ago.
