How Globalization Denies Communities the Right to "Free, Prior, and Informed Consent" The root cause of the crises that affect humanity on a massive scale - mass poverty, displacement / landlessness, food insecurity, environmental degradation / climate change, wars, political instability / bad governance / corruption, pandemics, and social collapse - is the unsustainable extraction of the world's natural resources by multinational corporations, in a process that is facilitated by bilateral and multilateral agreements, and supported by international institutions such as the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, and the World Trade Organization. Everything that we use is derived from or depends on the use of natural resources, which include land, water, fossil fuels, minerals, forests, fisheries, and biological resources. However, multinational corporations are increasingly concentrating this natural wealth into fewer hands. A 2008 United Nations report revealed that the problem lies in a governance gap, whereby companies operate as multinational corporations, but are regulated at the national level, thus leading to conflicts and violations of human rights and environmental standards. A major study on global wealth distribution revealed that the richest 1% of adults own more than half of global wealth, while the richest 10% own 85% of global wealth. In contrast, the bottom half of the world's adult population own barely 1% of global wealth. Rather than lift the poor, corporate-driven globalization has therefore caused record income and wealth ...

Angelina Jolie visit in Afgahanistan Angelina Jolie ends Afghan visit with call for more returnee support KABUL, Afghanistan, October 24 (UNHCR) The UN refugee agency's Goodwill Ambassador Angelina Jolie has concluded her first visit to Afghanistan, where she saw both the successes and the difficulties of return and reintegration. She saw first hand the country's difficult humanitarian circumstances and called for more international support to meet critical needs during the coming winter. Jolie's two-day trip comes ahead of an international conference on return and reintegration to be held in Kabul next month. Co-hosted by Afghanistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and UNHCR, the event will bring government ministries and donors together to see how the country's absorption capacity can best be strengthened to support further repatriation. The award-winning American actress is familiar with UNHCR's Afghan operation, having twice visited Pakistan in recent years to see Afghan refugees there. But the visit on Wednesday and Thursday was her first to Afghanistan to see the reintegration challenges inside the country. "The courage, resilience and quiet dignity of returnee families rebuilding their lives against the kind of adversity few of us can imagine shows the human spirit at its best," Jolie said after visiting a number of sites. On Wednesday, Jolie travelled to Nangarhar province in eastern Afghanistan where almost 850000, or 20 percent, of all returnees to Afghanistan have repatriated since 2002. Such ...

Lives of the Forest 'Lives of the Forest' was created by indigenous activists from across the Asia Pacific region exploring the likely impacts of the UN's REDD programme on indigenous resources and lifestyles. It was created during a participatory video facilitator training in Ifugao (Philippines) by representatives of 15 distinct indigenous communities from 8 different countries. The film was shot entirely on location within the remote mountain community of Hungduan in Ifugao (home to the Tuali peoples - one of the many indigenous groups in the Cordillera region of the Philippines) and explores the traditional knowledge and lifestyles of the Tuali peoples including their deep connection with, and reliance upon, their Muyong (clan-owned woodlands) and communal forests as an example of an indigenous community whose way of life is threatened by programmes such as REDD. The indigenous filmmakers behind this short film assert that market-based approaches to climate change are at odds with the traditional lifestyles and belief systems of indigenous peoples and that, through such programs, governments around the world will assert ownership over the forests inhabited by indigenous communities leading to landlessness and increased loss of bio-cultural diversity. It was planned and created by 18 indigenous activists as a collaborative filmmaking exercise during a 2-week training program in participatory video facilitation. The trainees undertook all the conceptualisation, storyboarding and filming ...

BILL COSBY SAYS COME ON PEOPLE *BREAKING THE MENTAL CHAINS* THE REASON FOR THIS VIDEO IS BECAUSE OF A COVERSATION I HAD WITH A WHITE MALE. HE WAS QUICK TO SAY BLK PPL NEED TO GET OVER THE PAST AND TAKE RESPONSIBILITY... BUT THEN HE EXPLAINS THE REASON THAT BLACKS DOMINATE IN SPORTS IS BECAUSE SLAVE OWNERS BRED THE STRONGEST SLAVES! i ask him if he felt that physical traits were passed down from slavery what about psychological damage? then he admits that slavery is the cause of alot of the black community's problems! so i wonder why do white ppl continue to bash the black community's actions when it is the result of what they created! then he says well he didn't own slaves and no blk person alive today were ever slaves. but i wasn't talking about slavery, i was talkin about the after effects of slavery, the KKK, the lynch mobs, the blatant disrespect and inhumane treatment, discrimination in employment, education and so on! lets not forget the civil rights movement was only 40+ yrs ago! then i told him there are more middle class blk families now than ever before and he said that's because of affirmative action.

Insecurity In Mt Elgon Food scarcity is threatening the fragile security in Mount Elgon as landlessness begins to take its toll. Residents who were evicted from the Chepyuk settlement scheme have resorted to begging for food from neighbours in whose houses they are now squatting. It is feared that if they are not allowed back to their farms soon, the security they are now enjoying may not hold for long.
