Please send the elites at the UN a big thank you for implementing Agenda21. Psychopaths are in control of the world, and we are going to pay dearly if we don’t stop the madness.

Gridlocked cities, empty shelves and bloodshed as fury at soaring costs spreads around the world

Worldwide protests over the rising price of fuel escalated today, with the Philippines presidential palace besieged by lorries, fishermen burning their boats in Thailand, and Spanish petrol stations running dry as hauliers blockade major roads.

Violence has already claimed lives of lorry drivers on either side of the dispute, while one haulier was nearly burned to death in his cab by strikers.

Hundreds of lorries and minibuses blocked roads in Manila leading to Malacanang Palace today to demand the lifting of a 12 per cent sales tax on fuel. Petrol prices there have risen about 24 per cent this year.

Anger: Drivers take their grievances onto the streets of Manila

Traffic ground to a halt as anti-riot police halted the convoy, including about 500 tuk-tuks, Manila’s three-wheeled taxis.

In Thai capital Bangkok, tens of thousands of heavy lorries are threatening to cause havoc while farmers are demonstrating and fishermen have begun burning their boats in nationwide protests against soaring prices of fuel and other essentials.

Lorry drivers’ leaders warned the government that it has until next Tuesday to subsidise their fuel or face at least 100,000 vehicles rumbling into Bangkok.

A half-day strike yesterday by lorry drivers who parked their vehicles on roads across the country was only a prelude to next week’s possible push into Bangkok, they said.
Finance Minister Suraphong Suebwonglee said there were plans to help reduce transport costs.

‘I am not concerned about the lorry drivers’ threat to strike because the government is seeking to subsidise the transport sectors as the whole,’ he said.

One fishermen’s group said more than half of the 50,000 fishing boats under its wing are being kept ashore because of the high cost of diesel.

Thai Airways International raised its fuel surcharges by up to 100 per cent yesterday day due to the rising cost of jet fuel.

Meanwhile opposition groups in Malaysia today vowed to push on with mass protests against a 41 per cent hike in petrol prices – despite a pledge from the Prime Minister to keep prices fixed for the rest of the year.

Malaysia is Asia’s largest net oil exporter, earning £38 million a year in revenue for every 50 pence rise in crude prices. Protesters demanded to know why rising profits from oil exports were not being used as subsidies to the poor.

A march is planned tomorrow in Kuala Lumpur to the Petronas Twin Towers, headquarters of oil giant Petronas.

A million people are expected for another demonstration in the capital next month.

Police have warned they will take action against protesters, with a permit required for any gatherings of more than four people.

Malaysia followed India, Indonesia, Taiwan and Sri Lanka by raising pump prices last week.

On Monday, Nepal became the latest Asian nation to rise prices to stem losses of a state firm.

Also in Asia, South Korean lorry drivers voted to strike on Monday, ignoring a £5 billion government aid package designed to cushion the impact of fuel price rises.

Is Global Warming Man Made?

June 9, 2008

Editor:

Is Global warming man made?

Yes

Global warning is man made all right.

It’s made up – by man.

And it’s being used to screw you over.

The elites have a “Agenda” and they are using the idea of global warming – fronted by the “Green Movement” to push their “Agenda”.

Renewable energy, high food prices, high fuel prices and failing economies are are all part of their “Agenda”, to crush the industrialized world.

What is the ultimate aim of these elite – psychopaths, sociopaths and so called world leaders.

They have two aims.

1) A New world order.

2) Massive depopulation.

“We came up with the idea”

In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up
with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming,
water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill …
All these dangers are caused by human intervention
and it is only through changed attitudes and
behaviour that they can be overcome.
The real enemy, then, is humanity itself
.”
Club of Rome,
The First Global Revolution,
consultants to the UN.

“the science of global warming is all phony”

No matter if the science of global warming is all phony… climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”
Christine Stewart,
fmr Canadian Minister of the Environment

“Isn’t it our responsibility”

And from Maurice Strong – Mr. Kyoto himself

Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the
industrialized civilizations collapse?
Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about
?”
Maurice Strong, former Secretary General of UNEP

UN food body 'should be scrapped'

May 5, 2008

Editor:
I would like to go further. The UN should be scrapped entirely. The UN is the home of evil. It is home of the Global Warming scare, which is a lie.

It is cause of the present food shortage. It pushed biofuels which it knew would have a devastating affect on food supplies. The UN wants to reduce world population by up to 80%.

The UN is the home of the elitists that want to rule the world via unelected officials. New World Order Read Agenda 21

The UN makes Hitler look like a pussy cat.
F@#k the UN and the New World Order

UN food body ‘should be scrapped’

President Abdoulaye Wade

President Wade said the FAO’s work was duplicated by other bodies

An African leader has dismissed the UN’s food agency as a “waste of money” and called for it to be scrapped.

President Abdoulaye Wade of Senegal spoke out days after the UN announced an emergency plan to bring soaring world food prices under control.

Mr Wade said the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) was itself largely to blame for the price rises.

His comments came as bakers in Nigeria began a week-long national strike in protest at the cost of flour and sugar.

Some global food prices have nearly doubled in the past three years, provoking riots and other protests in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
