The Cruel Truth of Silk – Spinning Lies By Fiona Galbraith

                   Spinning Lies by Fiona Galbraith, Viva! If you look at advertising campaigns promising luxury, you will often come across the adjective silky. Products such as Galaxy chocolate (Why have cotton when you can have silk?), Giovanni Hair Care Conditioner (Smooth as Silk) and Magnum ice-cream (smooth and silky) exploit the consensus that silk is a luxury product associated with indulgence, sex and affluence. Historically, silk was often worn by the upper classes as a symbol of wealth because of the expense involved in its production. Although silk remains more expensive than other fabrics, it is now readily available to consumers on every high street. Download report [345 KB] The Global Silk Industry Global silk production accounts for less than 0.2 per cent of the world’s textile output. Silk is produced in over 60 countries although Asian nations create most of the world’s silk (Datta & Nanavaty, 2005). China is the biggest manufacturer of silk, generating over three times as much as the world’s second largest, India (FAO, 2005). The international silk market had a turnover of $6.5 billion (over £4 billion) in 2000 and this continues to increase as India and other developing countries compete to increase their share […]

Is the Red Cross water in Haiti contaminated? – Cause of Cholera Outbreak

                   Haiti’s case against the UN for possibly importing the cholera virus by Ezili Danto Haitians have been bathing and drinking from the Artibonite river water for two centuries and have never before, in remembered history, gotten cholera. Suddenly they are getting sick from, according to the UN and WHO, drinking or eating food soaked or cooked from contaminated Artibonite river water. What ‘s new to Haiti that’s caused this? The natural assumption would be the unprecedented earthquake devastation. But the cholera outbreak is not coming from the Southern earthquake areas where sanitary conditions are compellingly worse than ever before in Haiti. So, what’s that new element, additional toxin and where did it come from? [For complete article features, please see original at Ezili Danto’s Notes here.] UN’s leaking, foul waste and unsecure septic tanks in Mirebalais is said by Haiti mayor to be the possible source of the Haiti cholera outbreak. Haiti residents in the Mirebalais, Artibonite and Central Plateau regions of the cholera outbreak are demanding an independent non-UN investigation of the case.* According to the people in the rural regions where the outbreak started its the oozing foul feces waste from the Nepalese UN base in Mirebalais […]

Please act now to Save Our British Forests ( Now Closed. Well done to all the people Common Sense Prevailed)

                  Campaign Action: Save Our British Forests The British Government has signaled their intent to sell 150,000 hectares of woodland looked after by the Forestry Commission in order to reduce the economic deficit. They are perpetrating an environmental crime by selling natural resources while lecturing other countries. The Forestry Commission manage 1.85 million acres of woodland and around a third would be sold to be potentially turned into amusement parks, sold off to developers for ‘affordable’ housing, sold to large landowners or large corporations. If the land was sold at present market price, it would raise £250m (despite the UK Government wanting to raise £5bn) which is nothing compared to how important these forests are to the environment and the country. It would set back countryside protection and the restoration of ancient woodlands by years if corporations were allowed to pick the most profitable land which would cut off funds now used for conservation and afforestation. The average forest cover in the UK is 12% where as in Europe its nearer 30% – how can the UK Government justify selling off when their election pledges promised to plant one million trees within the next Parliament term. The Read Report concluded that […]

please help PETA stop cruel animal testing and murder at University of Texas.

                  Just a quick update on this campaign, as soon as the details of this campaign was announced thousands of caring individuals inundated the Facebook page of the  University of Texas and commented on this cruelty only to find all our comments deleted and we were then subsequently banned from adding anything else to the page, we informed PETA of this and now they have set up an email so you can send the University a message this way. The link is below, we are still urging people to post a msg  on their Facebook page as well as the email, maybe we can inundate them and jam their server. Thank you. https://secure.peta.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=2831&autologin=true&c=weekly_enews A University of Texas at Dallas lab workbook uses this photo to show how to restrain rats in order to drill holes into their skulls. Did you know your Facebook account could help prevent rats from having holes drilled into their skulls? In a course at the University of Texas at Dallas, undergraduate students drill holes into healthy rats’ skulls, destroy parts of the animals’ brains with toxic chemicals, and then inject them with drugs and force them to perform in behavioral experiments to assess the brain damage […]

We must not allow another invasion because America wants one and a touching speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejed

                  Addressing the UN General Assembly, we heard that the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejed accused the US of carrying out the attacks on 9/11, this view is shared by many across the world as more information and evidence comes to light, why did the American delegates walk out during the speech?  If it were I or my fellow men being accused and I was innocent  I would have stayed, if I had nothing to do with carrying out those missile attacks, I would have stayed. .We are being led to believe once again that there is a terrorist threat to us all , what are these shadow people that control the governments trying to acheive, the more they push as all apart the more we have to stand together with love and compassion because I for one do not think the world is a terrible place. The controllers want you to believe that this is the case, divide and conquer is the name of the game but we as the masses have to start understanding the game and stop playing theirs. Below is the transcript of a speech made by the Iranian President in 2006, no wonder the Zionists have their […]

Use Nature to Cool your Home

                  Many years ago, we came up with an idea to keep our house cool in Summer that used Nature instead of expensive, electricity consuming air conditioners. We have five cats and since several of them are indoor cats, we could not leave our windows or doors open in the searing heat, so we came up with an idea that meant we could leave the windows or doors open while keeping everyone secure – the result was a grate made from inexpensive materials that fit the purpose, and we want to share it to help all of you in flats and houses who want some cool breeze to enter their homes without leaving doors and windows wide open. Disclaimer This project requires tools that should not be used by young children –  we know you have common sense to only get adults to build it. Talking of common sense, please be careful of small children when the grate is within the window, it may prevent pets from getting out but not small children – if in doubt, don’t put the grate up.

Help Pets suffering from Obscene Cruelty at Sun Pets – Please Act Now

                  I did not watch the video, I could not bring myself to do that so if you do not want to watch the video please just send an email to the district attorney of Fulton County GA who will not investigate the cruelty being carried out on these poor animals. We need to shout as loud as we can to ensure this company is closed down, please take a minute to add your own personal comments at the front of the email. Thank You Guys. As you may recall, video footage obtained in a PETA undercover investigation earlier this year revealed disturbing living and dying conditions for hamsters and other animals at Sun Pet Ltd., a wholesale animal dealer that supplies animals to PETCO and PetSmart stores. PETA is now able to release to the public more graphic footage and photos from this undercover investigation. View the never-before-seen photos and video footage from the investigation now. Animals at Sun Pet were confined to dark, extremely crowded containers that were like tombs. They were forced to eat, sleep, urinate, and defecate all in the same cramped space. PETA’s investigator also recorded the violent killing and abusive handling of hundreds of animals. […]

Chemtrails and Sylphs

                  I’ve been meaning to write this for some time but it was only two weeks ago that I downloaded the photos from my phone. Back in March/April 2010, I took some photos at work around 7am as I noticed chemtrails in the sky and they showed something very interesting. First in March 2010, I noticed the following: Nothing unusual as we have all been seeing these over the past few years – parallel chemtrails. Despite a concerted effort by us all, Governments have denied that they exist and that they are in fact contrails. However, lets look at the next photos. In April 2010, I noticed another plane leaving a chemtrail at the same location – however, I noticed that despite the chemtrail, it was also leaving a contrail behind. This was taken at 8:04am. I took another photo 1 minute later – this was taken at 8:05am, check out the area highlighted by the red arrow – it shows the contrail disappearing, leaving the chemtrail in the sky.  Do not believe our Governments when they tell us that chemtrails are in fact contrails – they are not, they are different as the photos above prove. Whoever it is, they […]

Still spraying chemtrails – thought there was a recession

                  We posted when a change of government took place in the UK that there were no chemtrails since the conservatives and liberals took over…well it seems that, that was just a settling in period and we were hoping with the so called ‘recession’ that the government would not be able to continue with the spraying on two grounds, one a moral, the other financial …seems that this government along with the last one does not have a moral issue with spraying the people and on a financial level..they seem to have reserved enough coffers to pay for these planes to spray continually throughout the day and night everyday weather permitting!!!…Do you remember a clear sunny day? Please remind me, cos when you look at movies or tv programs or look up the chemtrails  are everywhere…on tv and movies they are subliminally showing us that this is a normal sky when it is clearly not.   We have only recently found out that the sun contributes to wind patterns and as the governments of the world are so not ending the spraying even in a recession you have to ask what are they doing this for?…are they in receipt of knowledge […]
