Whistle Blowers & Surveillance, Edward Snowden. with Debra Sweet, Carl Dix & Faiza N. Ali -


The World Can't Wait,, Gee We're STILL waiting! 
Put in place in 2009 to end the Bush Regime, Debra Sweet,, "whether the system can Actually work"

Carl Dix,, Vietnam War Resistor, 1970, part of the largest mass refusal to go to Vietnam, Ft Lewis 6,, 

1970-Carl Dix, now a spokesperson for the RCP, USA, was among six GIs at Ft. Lewis in Washington who refused orders to go to Vietnam in 1970-this was the largest group refusal by U.S. soldiers of orders to Vietnam. While in the Fort Lewis stockade Carl led a hunger strike against the beatings and brutality inflicted on rebellious prisoners. While serving a two-year sentence for refusing to go to Vietnam in Leavenworth Military Prison, he was arrested in prison on charges of "conspiring to overthrow the legitimate authority of the stockade," for which he spent approximately 15 months in solitary confinement. 
More people are in prison because "People have been criminalized" Not because there are more criminals,, Because the Criminals Running things are criminalizing the people! 

Faiza N. Ali, of the Arab Association , "surveillance in our backyard" by NYPD on the Muslim community here in New York 

Can you Imagine?? Military personnel laughing!! at the killing of innocent people this country "calls" "Terrorist" so they can keep their power and criminalize the entire world. The Drone Operators call those they kill,, "Bug Splat"
The PTB will Criminalize ALL of us!! If we don't call them out as the Real Criminals!! So, We'd better get to it!

Kellie Cottam | Forced Adoption Exposed - YouTube

Currently in the UK, a child is being taken by the Local Authority every 20 minutes. Many of these cases are unlawful and children are in fact being kidnapped. In some cases even abused and trafficked. 

Children are being taken from loving families and thrown around the foster care industry, or placed for adoption. Social Services are underfunded, under-resourced, staff have too many cases and they cannot give attention to the families that they are there to help. 

This system is no longer about enabling and empowering families; it is about discrimination, defamation and the persecution of parents. It's abusive, barbaric and we must end this. 

To do this we need your help. We need your support and your prayers. We need help getting the message out to the right people. We need help with supporting families. We need help in funding the campaign and we need any help you can give. 

They have two of my children and I will not stop until this system is working for families, but I need help to make this happen. We need to gather every family who is affected by this to come together as one body. 

Please help by watching this video by liking / commenting and sharing to your own social media platforms to help us get this message out. We are not abusers of our children, we are innocent parents whose children have been failed by the system.

Thailand: Army expands control over Bangkok streets after declaring martial law

Thai soldiers were seen patrolling the streets and setting up barricades at key points around Bangkok after declaring Martial Law via a televised statement, Tuesday.

Troops already secured television stations around the capital, and could be seen patrolling the streets, checking vehicles entering the city and placing sandbags outside a city centre police headquarters.

The state of Martial Law was imposed in Thailand by the army to stem political and civil unrest after six months of anti-government protests resulting in escalating violence.
