Fall Of The Wall 25th Anniversary

 

berlinermauer122~_v-videowebl

To those of us who grew up in a divided Germany today is a special day, marking the 25th anniversary fall of the Berlin Wall and with it the fall of East Germany. The Eastern bloc under communism fell apart in 1989,  and a great change swept through Europe. East Germans were celebrating the freedom to travel, the right to free speech and being finally able to buy bananas!

Nowhere was the presence of the border felt more acutely than in the divided city itself. Not only were there two cities, East and West Berlin, but the capitalist West Berlin for 27 years became a symbol for freedom, an island in the sea of communism, kept alive by the Allied countries (The USA, France and Britain) and Enormous subsidies from West Germany.

I was born the day before JFK gave his famous “Ich bin ein Berliner” speech in front of the wall in 1963, but of course I was too young to care. Nor, in fact, did I ever care very much growing up, as the divided Germany was simply “normality”. Lucky for me I was born in the West.  From the time I was very young traveling to West Berlin by car became a regular event, as my paternal grandparents lived there. Border controls were the norm in Europe then (Pre EU), but in most of the countries border guards quickly glanced at your passport and waved you through.  Not so when traveling through East Germany, or the DDR, as we called it.  The DDR guards would look intently at your photo, then stare at you, the look at the photo again, then stare at you , several times, until they were sure you were not one of their own, trying to escape. There were spot checks, where they took apart half your car in order to look for hidden escapees.

I was a child, it was the way things were. And it was only a small taste of how East Germans were controlled by the Stasi for most of their lives, afraid of being caught saying the wrong thing, not being able to trust your neighbours in a country , where towards the end 25% of the population were government spies and people were thrown into jail for years for minor activism, which we take for granted.

In my late teens I became a little bit more interested in what was happening “on the other side”, My father and I spent a memorable day in East Berlin in the winter of 1980, where we tried our best to spend the 50 Deutsch Mark we were forced to exchange. I remember mostly, how dark it was: Gloomy. When we returned to West Berlin at night, the city lights just hit me. West Berlin was designed to be  a thorn in the side of the East, a constant reminder that it wasn’t going away:  loud, brightly lit and with no closing time for pubs , nightclubs and restaurants.

But in hindsight I can say that while the other side may have felt the constant pulse of the lively West Berlin, we also felt the gloom that was coming from the East which gave West Berlin a certain existentialist and melancholic tinge, forever immortalized in Wim Wenders incredible movie “Der Himmel ueber Berlin” (Wings Of Desire)

I was already living in Australia when the wall came down, the end result of  Gorbachev s” glasnost” “perestroika ”  and a peaceful people’s revolution.  The story of the Berlin Wall serves a reminder that change can happen and often happens quite suddenly, when enough factors come together to make a political situation no longer bearable.

There is no doubt, that we in the West are enjoying more freedom than the people who were imprisoned in East Germany, but we can never take these freedoms for granted, as the powers that be are happy to take them from us whenever we are not looking. While the fall of communism in 1989 was a good thing, many places, including Australia now suffer from the disease of corporatism, where it is not elected governments that run the country but corrupt politicians ruled by the Super-Wealthy and their corporations.

“We the people will need to see beyond the illusion,(created by those currently in power) that institutions like the courts and parliament, are the conduits through which justice and progressive change will be facilitated, they are merely mechanisms by which those who have hi- jacked the system,(so as to pursue their nefarious agenda) can do so unabated and limit any possibility of change to the current top down status quo.

Addressing this WILL require taking it PERSONALLY and not seeking permission to drive change from the grass roots upwards.”

In 1989 East Germans began to fight back and soon realized that if you are determined AND   have the numbers you are unstoppable.

 

IPAN open letter to the PM and Defence Minister regarding treatment of Swan Island Peace Convergence activists

IPAN open letter to the PM and Defence Minister regarding treatment of Swan Island Peace Convergence activists

Wednesday 29th October 2014

Open letter to the Prime Minister Mr Tony Abbott and the Defence Minister Mr David Johnston

The Independent and Peaceful Australia Network (IPAN) bring together over 50 community based peace and justice organisations across Australia.

We wish to express our grave concern regarding the alleged actions of SAS personnel, towards a small group of peaceful protesters at Swan Island military base on the 2nd October.

It is our understanding the Swan Island Peace Convergence group has protested Australian involvement in foreign wars over the past 5 years with protesters treated lawfully and peacefully by the ADF and the Victorian Police Force.

We in the IPAN are concerned that the tactics used this time, which include hooding, stripping of clothing, physical and verbal violence from ADF personnel reflect the Australian government’s current policies which restrict civil liberties on the basis of the threat of terrorism to Australian citizens.

The actions of the ADF personnel are reminiscent of the treatment of prisoners in the Abu Ghraib prison in 2004 by US troops, and indeed correlate with a number of inquiries into treatment of civilians by ADF personnel during Australian military engagement in Afghanistan.

We ask, are our young men and women in the ADF being trained to commit war crimes?

When viewed in the context of the government’s decision to send Australian forces into Iraq for the 3rd time we express our concern that the people of our country are being constrained in their democratic rights to protest this engagement as it potentially grows into a major war.

The members of IPAN request that findings of the investigation by the Department of Defence into the actions of members of the ADF at Swan Island be made public.

All roads privatised proposal

Of course this means that:

1) The roads will be sold off cheaply to the puppet masters corporations.

2) Roads will not be maintained.

3) No new roads will be built.

4) Your right to travel freely will be gone.

5) The road tolling system will be a means of universal surveillance

 

http://www.news.com.au/finance/money/every-road-in-australia-should-have-tolls-says-report/story-fnagkbpv-1227067053501

 

Of course roads can be built without a government, but why do that when you can get the public to pay for it, and then buy at cents in the dollar from the government you installed into office. Then of course ransom the general public for using  the roads they paid for, that y0u just stole off them.

Need  government to build roads? No. Need a government to then sell your roads to a private corporation? No. Makes you wander why tthe corporation didn't build the roads in the first place. Why not? Not economic, but stealing roads is economic.

Team Australia

The moment Tony Abbott coined this phrase it was yet another “suppository of wisdom” coming from Tony Abbott’s mouth.

It had ‘memebait’ written all over it. Fortunately SMH was on the job.

Team Australia Meme run by the SMH (Sydney Morning Herald) more or less what I would have done with the comment 'Team Australia'.

For those too young to know what this all means allow me to explain. (Adult themes and language)

Relevance? Today is the first day Australian warplanes began flying armed over the regions disputed by Syria, Iraq and Kurdistan (and of course the boogeyman ‘de jour’; ISIS).

In case there is any blow back, remember no one outside of the Australian political system voted for military intervention, If you want to blame anyone blame a politician.

Queensland cop caught stealing on video on duty

Of course the cop was never charged for the offense of stealing $1000 from an old woman while raiding her house for allegedly selling cannabis.

 

Shane Allan Sterling a detective with Queensland police steal $1000 from a house being raided. He was unwittingly caught on security cameras and later dismissed. Check the date stamp exactly 6 months before Christmas. An anti Christmas?

Occupy Central Hong Kong

In response to China’s planned erosion of democratic electoral process in the SAR of Hong Kong  (China proposing to only allow their approved candidates to stand for election), an occupation has begun.

The people republic of China has always held democratic reforms as being dangerous and unpalatable and to this day many Chinese residents are completely unaware of  the Tienanmen square pro democracy protest from 1989 and the gruesome way in which it ended.

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-29397738

Many of the protesters have taken to wearing eye protection with some using a improvised saran wrap (AKA cling film/ glad wrap) as a ‘better than nothing’ protection from presumably noxious gasses that may be released by authorities to break up the protest.

Thousands take to the street in Hong Kong in protest of Chinese government wanting to reduce democratic freedoms.

These guys are smart they are going straight to the heart of the beast, threatening to disrupt banking and finance in Hong Kong.

Moderate Muslim leaders fail to prevent extremism

When? Almost always because the Koran is a book detailing the expansion of an empire by the use of  extreme violence and terror. Islamic leaders always fail at preventing radicals, because the radicals are closer to the Koran in their actions than the Imams.In Islam the radicals control the moderates ( and use violence to gain control) unlike many other religions. The Imams are just there to appease the locals and keep the Islamisation of the host nation in progress.

From just over 2 years ago:

 

 

at 0:58 mark ISIS flag

isis flag at 58s

 

at 1:27  ISIS terrorist who made his kids hold up a severed head.

terrorist at 127

 

Inciting murder at 2:28

inciting murder

 

This was years ago and nothing has changed.

gillard as PM at the time

 

These latest claims by Islamic leaders will not  quell the violent nature of this community, they raise their children with violence and breed them to hate. Its just a tactic to attempt the reduce the blowback from the host nation’s people’s calls to reject the foreign fascist ideology growing in their back yard.

 

Does this guy look familiar?

Yeah from the video from 2 years ago. Did the Islamic leaders prevent him from becoming radicalized? Did they prevent him from going to Iraq to be a terrorist? He even took his son to pose for photos with a  severed human head. Find out more about this ‘religion of peace’

NZ mass surveilance operational PM lied

Just a week from election in New Zealand It has been revealed that mass electronic surveillance has been occurring despite government denials.

While in Australian the debate has been about meta data, in New Zealand complete content has been spied on.

https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/09/15/new-zealand-gcsb-speargun-mass-surveillance/

John Key New Zealand’s current prime minister and former US federal reserve employee, made specific assurances that such spying was not occurring.

Will this hurt his election chances? Quite likely.
