Turkey Clashes continue

Published on 14 Jul 2013

Hundreds of protesters gathered in Istanbul on Saturday to march to Gezi Park. They’ve been protesting against a recently imposed law. It blocks the Turkish Engineers and Architects Union from approving urban planning projects. The law is seen by many as part of a government vendetta.

The union previously brought a lawsuit over plans to develop Gezi Park, prompting the first protests against Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan.

The crowd chanted anti-government slogans and screamed: “This is just the beginning. The fight is continuing.”

Swedish multiculturalism

Published on 22-26 May 2013
Six nights of riots in a country, listed as ‘the best-governed in the world.’ Sweden’s police say the violence in Stockholm has now been curbed, although dozens of cars were still torched in poor suburbs. It was almost a week of rioting, with masked protesters vandalizing the city. And their anger is fuelled by unemployment and poverty among immigrants, who feel they’re being pushed to the edge of society.

Sweden could be paying a tough price for its policies on immigrants and multiculturalism. A Stockholm suburb erupted into violence for a few hours, as crowds of angry, masked youths from migrant families burned cars, smashed windows and hurled stones at police officers.

What’s believed to have fueled the riot was the death of a 69-year-old man, allegedly shot by police in the area last week.

Quebec rally protests police brutality

The police started making arrests before the protest in even started. Around 500 people came out to the 17th annual anti-police brutality march in downtown Montreal, people who say police brutality happens all too often in the city, and that the officers are not held accountable for their actions.

Police used horses, pepper-spray and kettling tactics to disperse the crowd. Because of municipal laws, requiring itineraries for such events, the march was deemed illegal from the start, But protesters say they did nothing wrong.

Why The Banking Elite Want Riots in America

Every indication clearly suggests that authorities in the United States are preparing for widespread civil unrest. This trend has not emerged by accident – it is part of a tried and tested method used by the banking elite to seize control of nations, strip them of their assets, and absorb them into the new world order.

There is a crucial economic imperative as to why the elite is seeking to engineer and exploit social unrest.

As respected investigative reporter Greg Palast exposed in 2001, the global banking elite, namely the World Bank and the IMF, have honed a technique that has allowed them to asset-strip numerous other countries in the past – that technique has come to be known at the “IMF riot.”

In April 2001, Palast obtained leaked World Bank documents that outlined a four step process on how to loot nations of their wealth and infrastructure, placing control of resources into the hands of the banking elite.

One of the final steps of the process, the “IMF riot,” detailed how the elite would plan for mass civil unrest ahead of time that would have the effect of scaring off investors and causing government bankruptcies.

“This economic arson has its bright side – for foreigners, who can then pick off remaining assets at fire sale prices,” writes Palast, adding, “A pattern emerges. There are lots of losers but the clear winners seem to be the western banks and US Treasury.”

In other words, the banking elite creates the very economic environment – soaring interest rates, spiraling food prices, poverty, lower standards of living – that precipitates civil unrest – and then like a vulture swoops down to devour what remains of the country’s assets on the cheap.

We have already seen this process unfold in places like Bolivia, Ecuador, Indonesia, Greece and Argentina. Next on the chopping block are Spain, Italy, Britain and France – all of which have seen widespread riots over the last two years.
