(From a Facebook post of Dec. 13, revised Dec. 24) – Six people appeared in Halifax provincial court on Monday, December 10 to face charges of mischief and obstructing a peace officer, stemming from Sunday night’s protest at the Canada Post mail-processing plant on Almon Street in that city.

Refusal to uphold international rule of law is a serious matter of concern | Three articles from TML Weekly, John Pilger and Craig Murray
Protest outside British Parliament after a court ruling barring Chagos Islanders from returning to their homeland, October 22, 2008.
TML Weekly welcomes the February 25 ruling of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the Chagos Islands. In a majority decision of 13 to 1, with all the judges from EU countries amongst those finding against the UK, the ICJ ruled that the continued British occupation of the Chagos Islands is illegal and ordered the UK to return the islands to Mauritius “as rapidly as possible.” The islands were seized by the British in 1965 and the people forcibly removed in 1971 to permit the U.S. to build a military base on the island of Diego Garcia. This base plays a criminal role in the U.S. striving for world hegemony. Continue reading

Canada is trying to position Juan Guaidó in the Caribbean to the detriment of the constitutional government of Nicolás Maduro. The U.S. needs to break Venezuela’s strategic alliance with Caribbean nations and shift the voting balance in the Organization of American States. Canada, which has meddled in the British West Indies with “aid” and warships for decades, is sent as its errand boy to pull the chestnuts out of the fire. Yet the Liberal duplicity and intrigue is to feign that it is merely acting in a disinterested manner at the request of the same Guaidó. According to this fable, Guaidó himself is not able to make such an overture! A document from Global Affairs admits “there has been no consensus among the countries of the America.” | Misión Verdad
Meeting of Caricom, February 26-27 in St. Kitts-Navis reiterated their rejection of outside interference in Venezuela.
The online Misión Verdad periodical has access to a confidential document (“Non-Paper”) drafted by the government of Canada, led by Justin Trudeau, with which they tried to build a bridge of contact between the president of Venezuela’s National Assembly (in contempt) and some countries of the Eastern Caribbean by proposing an instrument to displace Petrocaribe.

(March 12) – The United States will no longer consider its allies as protectorates. Therefore, they ask them to pay the cost of their protection, otherwise they will withdraw. This was announced by President Trump on January 17 at the Pentagon, which was presented in February at NATO, but was released only this week. A decision that applies to all allies, from Japan to Germany. The problem is that Washington is also asking its allies to align with its positions … as they did as protectorates. Continue reading
