People Across Europe Protest Inhumane Immigration Policy
By teleSUR 25 April 15

Citizens demand their leaders do more to help immigrants and refugees.
fter nearly 900 people drowned in the Mediterranean on Sunday trying to reach Europe from Libya, European leaders have finally decided that the looming migration crisis should be taken seriously.  In an emergency summit in Brussels Thursday, leaders finally agreed to invest more money into marine search and rescue operations – what some nations, particularly Britain and Germany, have been reluctant to do, saying it would only “encourage” more migration to the continent.  For months, however, citizens across Europe have taken to the streets and spoken out in various ways, demanding that their leaders do more for the thousands of migrants dying at sea. In 2014 alone, 3,000 people drowned in the Mediterranean trying to get to Europe, while an additional 1,600 have lost their lives since January of this year alone – a number 30 times higher than…

Selling Hillary Clinton 22

"Ik reconstrueer een werkelijkheid op basis van het relaas van ongeveer tachtig personen en vele andere bronnen. Onvermijdelijk stoot je dan op mythes en halve waarheden. Een daarvan is dat de loterij is opgericht voor de goede doelen; de loterij is in eerste instantie opgericht om een eigen probleem op te lossen, namelijk het jaarlijkse tekort bij het persbureau IPS waar Boudewijn directeur van was. Overigens zegt hij zelf dat IPS een goed doel was, het was een persbureau voor en door de Derde Wereld dat gesteund werd door onder andere Buitenlandse Zaken."

Crimes Egyptian Regime

Dutch Lawsuit Charges Crimes Against Humanity During Egyptian Massacres By Marjorie Cohn Global Research, April 23, 2015 Url of this article: On July 3, 2013, the Egyptian military staged a coup d’etat and deposed the democratically elected government of President Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood. Thousands of Egyptians staged demonstrations throughout Egypt to show support for Morsi.
One month later, the Egyptian army and police carried out several massacres in Cairo, killing hundreds of unarmed protesters. Authorities mounted a military response to largely peaceful protests by supporters of the Brotherhood against the illegitimate Egyptian government. Although aimed primarily at the Brotherhood, the crackdown included other political opposition groups and individuals. Four Dutch citizens of Egyptian origin, who were present during three of the most brutal massacres in s…

Cities and States Pay Massive Secret Fees to Wall Street  Posted on Apr 24, 2015 By David Sirota

Drongowski(CC BY 2.0) California’s report said $440 million. New Jersey’s said $600 million. In Pennsylvania, the tally is $700 million. Those Wall Street fees paid by public workers’ pension systems have kicked off an intensifying debate over whether such expenses are necessary. Now, a report from an industry-friendly source says those huge levies represent only a fraction of the true amounts being raked in by Wall Street firms from state and local governments.
“Less than one-half of the very substantial [private equity] costs incurred by U.S. pension funds are currently being disclosed,” says the report from CEM, whose website says the financial analysis firm “serve(s) over 350 blue-chip corporate and government clients worldwide.”
Currently, about 9 percent—or $270 billion—of America’s $3 trillion public pension fund assets are invested in private equity firms. With the financial indust…
