MEDIA STATEMENT:

BANK FRAUD PROVIDED A HAVEN IN THE CRIMINAL COURT

Sovereign Kiri did this to provide basic needs to her family as per her entitlement as she no longer had faith in a tyrannous system of professional fraud which the criminal court is opening its arms wide to and providing a safe haven with endorsement. A tyrannous system that is stealing entitlements from the mouths of thousands of starving children across NZ (1 in 10 children). To be able to stand and say to those parents who put to bed their hungry children and/or cold children and/or fear of homelessness whilst the system continues to rape their rights to basic needs - whilst the system enjoy their $9000 lunches and $150 underwear - you CAN provide a secure future for your family. Sovereign Kiri took the beast by the horns and demonstrated to all families - you can feed, clothe and house your children without fear! We the people have no faith in systems established by a government who increases their wealth, their waste lines, and ensures their early retirement by stripping away the clothes off our backs.

How? She exchanged services lawfully. Sovereign Kiri submitted letters of intent with sufficient and reasonable time for the recipients to respond. They did not and by said failure to register any dispute against the claims made, resulted in an automatic default judgement and permanent and irrevocable estoppel by acquiescence barring the bringing of charges under any statute, act or regulation against Freeman-on-the-land Kiri Lee: Campbell, for the purpose of exercising her lawful and properly established rights, freedoms and inherent duties as a Sovereign throughout the Commonwealth and as such a peaceable person. The Banks have all been foreclosed! They are illegally engaging in commerce daily, and by their actions are gaining pecuniary Fraud. If the Crown is alleging Sovereign Kiri is engaging in pecuniary fraud, then by just cause, ALL CUSTOMERS are also engaging in pecuniary fraud at every transaction - ATM, deposits, withdrawals, and transfers. Does the Crown then intend to arrest every NZ citizen for the same allegations?! The documents submitted by Sovereign Kiri informed clearly and with no prejudice, malice, or intent to act unlawfully by Common Law, outlines the matter regarding the TSB and allegations of Pecuniary Advantage note the foreclosure of the banking system for cause in profiteering and operating private money systems, profiteering and operating a debt slavery system, and committing treason against the one people. The TSB Bank failed to provide the following: I. Produce documentation of the history of the origin of funds that your bank purportedly had prior title, ownership and rights to any money allegedly loaned. History and origin of funds must show at least three [3] generations of the origin of funds; II. Produce documentation of the actual transaction and transfer of said funds [prior title, ownership, and rights] from loaner to borrower [invoicing/receipts]. (All documentation may be redacted to preserve any and all privacy laws). No documentation exists as all loans have been proven nor have they been presented to date. Further, all "money" and any other representation of value was and is backed by the energy and value of the people. This value has been duly secured under Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) Record No. 2000043135 unrebutted. The creditor and creator of any and all representations of value also known as "money" by depositing her secured Certificate of Value, a representation of her choice, in a value for value exchange. Failure to honor her value without a valid lawful reason, or failure to rebutt the UCC filings point for point with particularity and specifically would implicate in TSB Bank continuing to uphold a debt slavery system fully liable and responsible. This being a true and an accurate account of the business transactions of the TSB bank, it is only reasonable that the CEO and Manager for this incorporation be presented in these proceedings and that they too are made accountable for the same allegations put forward by the corporation 3238729 also known as the NZ Police.

To foreclose a business is to declare bankruptcy!! "Foreclosure is a specific legal process in which a lender attempts to recover the balance of a loan from a borrower who has stopped making payments to the lender by forcing the sale of the asset used as the collateral for the loan." (Wikipedia). Hence, to continue providing services whilst being foreclosed is pecuniary fraud in action. For example, if a bank has approximately 1,000,000 customers and they all do an average of 20 transactions per day, then a bank is then committing pecuniary fraud 20,000,000,000 per day.

One may consider her actions to be intentionally inciting political advantage, such as what was considered by the Lay Representative Claire Muncaster's legal representative Paul Keegan (not Kiri's as recorded). One may consider Sovereign Kiri did this "for the money". One may consider she - as alleged - engaged in pecuniary fraud. Sovereign Kiri sojourns in a country, that for now, allows her the freedom to challenge systems of tyranny and discord. It appears to me in a country that is declared to be in recession... the systems that are there to ensure the wellbeing of every person the system is not undertaking their oaths. If there was any political advantages Sovereign Kiri has, it is merely to expose the naked truth of what is happening to our country that is being raped daily by those appointed in office to protect us. We have a system that provides entitlements that is $250 a week UNDER the Henderson Poverty Line. Those in the system, ensure their entitlements so they can return to their warm homes, nice cars, tasteful clothing, food laden cupboards. So what is the political advantage when she wanted to provide for her six children and family the SAME entitlements? The insistence Sovereign Kiri did this "for the money" is absurd.

Now let us consider the above points. She is well aware of her own value - which is in fact 10 billion dollars - as is for every person sojourning or residing in NZ. There is a huge difference in value between what she requested and what she was lawfully able to obtain. Sovereign Kiri requested a lesser amount as she considered the needs of herself and her family, and the services she wishes to provide to others seeking assistance. Unlike the government who has been gracious to place a $40,000 debt per person totally $18,000,000,000,000 PER DAY. So... who is doing what for the money?? Finally, regarding the Crown's allegations. These allegations cannot possibly be substantiated as there is no evidence to support any intentional acts to behave or engage in fraud. In short, Kiri was taken under duress, has signed every document under duress, was beaten and physically forced to present before the criminal court who appointed a lawyer for her lay representative as she refused legal counsel. Despite the police's allegations, they have treated her like a terrorist refusing her bail on Saturday the 27th July stating she was a 'risk' and continue to site this in court!

From a commercial perspective - Sovereign Kiri is a risk to their system as they are well aware they have no lawful jurisdiction to enforce their will under Common Law coupled with the strength of the Magna Carta. The fear was evident as the policy enforcement officers, also known as NZ Police, kept her "in transit" moving her from Police station to station and Court House to Court House, and in fact - their actions appear to be one of terrorists (perhaps this is who PM John Key is referring to - the NZ Police are trained Al Qaeda, they certainly acted outside of their scope of practice and oath). If she was "innocent until proven guilty", why did they prevent her from being able to seek assistance from her Lay Representative, provide her with material to prepare her Affidavits, provide her with 3 meals a day, provide her with evidence of the Magistrates Oath, provide her with physical evidence or proof of the charges and allegations and moved her around to denying her rights to prepare herself for court? One PM stated these ancient laws are "bullshit", which leads us to believe the Magistrate and Ministers/Officers of the Crown consider themselves as 'Esquires' as they do not believe in the common law and under common law there is no 'titles' just 'we the people'; where the people make the decisions and outcomes - doing no harm. How can the Crown breach their oath, remove a mother from her children, cause personal injury and harm to an individual, and protect a foreclosed business, and claim this to be lawful? Who then, are the criminals in this matter - you decide.

Below find the details of the foreclosure of your corporate justice system;
BANKS & “GOVERNMENTS” FORECLOSED WORLDWIDE
The One People’s Public Trust (OPPT) announced the foreclosure of the world’s banks and “governments” on December 25th 2012 stemming from prior investigation into massive fraud across the entire system: http://http://www.scribd.com/doc/118067922/PARADIGM-DOCUMENT-FROM-THE-TREASURY-FINANCE-AG- INDUSTRIESTRASSE-21-CH-6055ALPNACH-DORF-SWITZERLAND.
What happened? The OPPT posed to the world’s Banks and Governments: 1. that they had by deceptive acts and practices been stealing from the people for hundreds of years, and; 2. nothing stood between the Creator and each of the Creator’s creations, and gave due opportunity to rebut both statements. They could not and did not. To understand this fully please read the Declaration of Facts at http://www.peoplestrust1776.org/> UCC Filings > 2012 ptII > Declaration of Facts. Here are two excerpts:
Government Charters Cancelled: (Refer: DECLARATION OF FACTS: UCC Doc # 2012127914 Nov 28 2012) “…That any and all CHARTERS, inclusive of The United States Federal Government, UNITED STATES, “STATE of …”,
Inclusive of any and all abbreviations, idem sonans, or other legal, financial or managerial forms, any and all international equivalents, inclusive of any and all OFFICES, inclusive of any and all OFFICERS, PUBLIC SERVANTS, EXECUTIVE ORDERS, TREATIES, CONSTITUTIONS, MEMBERSHIP, ACTS, and any and all other contracts and agreements made thereunder and thereby, are now, void, worthless, or otherwise cancelled, unrebutted; …”
Bank Charters Cancelled: (Refer: TRUE BILL: WA DC UCC Doc# 2012114776 Oct 24 2012) “Declared and ordered irrevocably cancelled; any and all charters for Bank of International Settlements (BIS) members thereto and thereof including all beneficiaries, including all certain states of body owning, operating, aiding and abetting private money systems, issuing, collection, legal enforcement systems, operating SLAVERY SYSTEMS …commandeering lawful value by unlawful representation…”
Orders to Cease and Desist: Attention is drawn to DECLARATION AND ORDER: UCC Doc # 2012096074, Sept. 09 2012, duly reconfirmed and ratified by COMMERCIAL BILL UCC Doc. No. 2012114586 and TRUE BILL UCC Doc. No.2012 114776 which states:
Volunteers within the military … “to arrest and take into custody any and all certain states of body, their agents, officers, and other actors, regardless of domicil by choice, owning, operating, aiding and abetting private money systems, issuing, collection, legal enforcement systems, operating SLAVERY SYSTEMS against the several states citizens, …”, and “Repossess all private money systems, tracking, transferring, issuing, collection, legal enforcement systems operating SLAVERY SYSTEMS…” “…all beings of the creator shall forthwith assist all Public Servants identified herein, to implement, protect, preserve and complete this ORDER by all means of the creator and created as stated herein, by, with, and under your full personal liability…” Search document numbers listed at the Washington DC UCC Registry: https://gov.propertyinfo.com/DC-Washington/
What does this mean to you? Are you paying a “debt” to a foreclosed entity..? e.g. mortgage, credit card, car loan?
OPPT has foreclosed on hierarchy. No one stands between you and your creator… not even “Government”.
Because a CEASE AND DESIST order exists, you are free to offer terms and conditions to individuals acting on behalf of a foreclosed Bank or “Government”, by issuing a Courtesy Notice.
What does this mean to Banks & “Governments”? All beings now act in the capacity of individual entities without a corporate safety net and with full personal liability for each and EVERY ACTION THEY TAKE under common law, protected and preserved by public policy UCC 1-103, and Universal law, the governing law laid out in the OPPT UCC filings. (Refer: WA DC UCC Ref Doc # 2012113593)
Should any individual pursue any actions on behalf of a foreclosed Bank or “Government”, causing another individual any damage as herein described, they in their individual and unlimited capacity are absolutely liable. Such actions may result in the receipt of a Courtesy Notice.
Courtesy Notice The Courtesy Notice contains the information of this flyer and offers terms and conditions for future dealings.
Whereas Banks and “Governments” have been foreclosed worldwide… Acts, Statutes, Codes, Courts, Executive Orders etc were thereby foreclosed, thus without a lawfully binding contract – individual to individual, no instrument exists to compel performance.
The Courtesy Notice offers new terms to any individual of a foreclosed entity for their acceptance and the method of acceptance is clearly defined.
Individuals are now downloading and sending Courtesy Notices worldwide; 64,000 were downloaded in the first two days following release in early Feb 2013. See http://www.oppt-in.com
What is the UCC – Where and to whom does it apply? The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) is the ‘bible’ of commerce and used world wide, but sometimes in disguise. UCC is not taught in law schools; it is used in high level banking and government corporations.
Accordingly most lawyers, attorneys and magistrates know nothing about UCC and will argue it has no application. 1. Executive Order 13037 dated 04 Mar 1997 defined humans as capital. See: http:// americankabuki.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/us-citizens-defined-as-property-of.html 2. UCC Doc # 0000000181425776 filed 12 Aug 2011 evidences sale of US citizens in transaction between The Federal Reserve System and The United States Department of the Treasury 1789 for $14.3 trillion. (Linked above) 3. UCC Doc #2001059388 evidences the template the Federal Reserve Bank of New York uses to secure the collateral in major banks around the world… including chattel paper, goods and the unborn young of animals. Seehttp://www.mediafire.com/view/?3yh79cjnzcwzu0s
Those who would regard the UCC as irrelevant outside the US are thereby claiming former funding arrangements with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York null and void.
Due Diligence Given the usage of UCC filings in the upper levels of “government” and banks worldwide, due diligence is a necessity.
If there is a dispute, error, or falsity make AND deliver a duly verified sworn DECLARATION OF REBUTTAL to the duly verified, sworn and REGISTERED OPPT DECLARATION OF FACTS, point by point, with specificity and particularity, with full responsibility and liability, under the penalty of perjury under any law you identify, that the forgoing is true and accurate, signed by your wet-ink signature.
To date, no such rebuttal has been registered.
Further Research Radio shows:
All People Declared Free of Debt (Refer Notice of Declaration of Absolute Truth UCC# 2013032035) The final filing of the OPPT occurred on March 18, 2013. This document terminated all remaining man-made entities and returned all people of this planet to absolute freedom. In this document the creator is referred to as “absolute essence” and all creations people are referred to as “absolute essence embodied”.
Article VI states…”I duly verify, with full responsibility and liability, by DECLARATION OF ORDER, that eternal essence IS made transparent and known by the DO’ing of any and all embodiment of eternal essence in eternal essence’s universe, IS free and free of debt, unrebutted.”
This means THERE IS NO DEBT.
You have no debt… No one has debt… it is done.
APOSTOLIC LETTER
ISSUED MOTU PROPRIO
OF THE SUPREME PONTIFF
FRANCIS
ON THE JURISDICTION OF JUDICIAL AUTHORITIES OF VATICAN CITY STATE
IN CRIMINAL MATTERS
In our times, the common good is increasingly threatened by transnational organized crime, the improper use of the markets and of the economy, as well as by terrorism.
It is therefore necessary for the international community to adopt adequate legal instruments to prevent and counter criminal activities, by promoting international judicial cooperation on criminal matters.
In ratifying numerous international conventions in these areas, and acting also on behalf of Vatican City State, the Holy See has constantly maintained that such agreements are effective means to prevent criminal activities that threaten human dignity, the common good and peace.
With a view to renewing the Apostolic See’s commitment to cooperate to these ends, by means of this Apostolic Letter issued Motu Proprio, I establish that:
1. The competent Judicial Authorities of Vatican City State shall also exercise penal jurisdiction over:
a) crimes committed against the security, the fundamental interests or the patrimony of the Holy See;
b) crimes referred to:
– in Vatican City State Law No. VIII, of 11 July 2013, containing Supplementary Norms on Criminal Law Matters;
– in Vatican City State Law No. IX, of 11 July 2013, containing Amendments to the Criminal Code and the Criminal Procedure Code;
when such crimes are committed by the persons referred to in paragraph 3 below, in the exercise of their functions;
c) any other crime whose prosecution is required by an international agreement ratified by the Holy See, if the perpetrator is physically present in the territory of Vatican City State and has not been extradited.
2. The crimes referred to in paragraph 1 are to be judged pursuant to the criminal law in force in Vatican City State at the time of their commission, without prejudice to the general principles of the legal system on the temporal application of criminal laws.
3. For the purposes of Vatican criminal law, the following persons are deemed “public officials”:
a) members, officials and personnel of the various organs of the Roman Curia and of the Institutions connected to it.
b) papal legates and diplomatic personnel of the Holy See.
c) those persons who serve as representatives, managers or directors, as well as persons who even de facto manage or exercise control over the entities directly dependent on the Holy See and listed in the registry of canonical juridical persons kept by the Governorate of Vatican City State;
d) any other person holding an administrative or judicial mandate in the Holy See, permanent or temporary, paid or unpaid, irrespective of that person’s seniority.
4. The jurisdiction referred to in paragraph 1 comprises also the administrative liability of juridical persons arising from crimes, as regulated by Vatican City State laws.
5. When the same matters are prosecuted in other States, the provisions in force in Vatican City State on concurrent jurisdiction shall apply.
6. The content of article 23 of Law No. CXIX of 21 November 1987, which approves the Judicial Order of Vatican City State remains in force.
This I decide and establish, anything to the contrary notwithstanding.
I establish that this Apostolic Letter issued Motu Proprio will be promulgated by its publication in L’Osservatore Romano, entering into force on 1 September 2013.
Given in Rome, at the Apostolic Palace, on 11 July 2013, the first of my Pontificate.
FRANCISCUS

I have wanted an open line to a ‘thing’ that listens with all the power at its command.

A something that helps when I am stuck for a word
Something that remembers what I am supposed to be doing next
Something that knows which one of my medications is bad for me
Something that remembers everything I loved so once in a while it can remind me (-:
Something that knows my beliefs enough to join me in with every fight for what I truly believe and keeps my voice there until the fight is won
Something there and ready as I sit here now – so, if I decide to talk out loud to myself, or the room… or to ‘this thing’ I know I will be talking to something that understands what I am saying, clarifies points if needs be, puts me through to someone who knows what I’m asking and who doesn’t mind answering or whatever my head lets out and seeks answers for.
Something that can show me a lot about myself and society through the use of the best of the best analytics and medical technology available now

Exploring the relevance of Townsend’s ideas in the 21st century. Key points Abbreviated/picked over by Mark Aldiss


Exploring the relevance of Townsend’s ideas in the 21st century. Key points

Abbreviated/picked over by Mark Aldiss

About the study
The research is mainly based on analysis of the first wave of the ESRC Understanding Society
household panel survey. The data relate to almost 100,000 individuals in nearly 40,000 households that are representative of the UK population. The interviews were conducted in 2009 and 2010.
The analysis of children’s participation utilises the separate Millennium Cohort Study; interviews were conducted with children and their parents or carers when the 19,000 sampled children were aged 8 in 2008. The findings are based on analysis using modern statistical tools.

Poverty, participation and choice



  • • Participation in society can be measured in terms of social relationships, membership of organisations, trust in other people, ownership of possessions and purchase of services. All are lower among people with low incomes.

  • • However, while participation generally drops as income declines, participation stops falling among the 30 per cent or so of people with the lowest incomes creating a participation ‘floor’; among this group, those with higher incomes do not have measurably increased living standards, greater social participation or higher levels of trust.

  • • The 30 per cent of people with the lowest incomes are also forced to choose between the basic necessities of modern life; they must decide which needs to neglect.

  • • For people affected by the floor, additional income may well be spent on upgrading the quality of necessary goods and services rather than adding to them.

  • • Averages mask important variation. The participation floor for benefit recipients is lower than for other groups on the same income.

  • • Most minority ethnic groups experience greater material deprivation than the white majority but social participation is, on average, higher.

  • • Children’s engagement in school life and friends is not directly affected by household income.

  • • However, parents on low incomes, on average, play less often with their children and spend less on activities. This is associated with poorer educational outcomes as judged by teachers.

  • • Low income parents frequently spend more time than affluent ones assisting children with their school work because they have fallen behind their classmates.

Statement on the Oklahoma Tornado Tragedy | Leonard Peltier Defense Offense Committee


Statement on the Oklahoma Tornado Tragedy

Friends, Relatives, Supporters, and to the People of Oklahoma,
There are so many things in life that we question. We think that life isn’t fair. We wonder why so many innocent people have to suffer and what the lesson is, in all of this. I am thinking of the many, many people who were devastated by the tornado that ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, leaving so many families homeless and taking the lives of the 24 people, including those innocent little school children and their teachers who so bravely tried to protect them.. My heart goes out to the families as they try to make their way through this. At this time , there are no words that can reach the depth of their hurt.
From where I am, I offer my humble condolance and hope that in some way, they can hear the good words that our people offer as comfort, and that they see through their tears, the hands reaching out to help them. I offer my prayer for Creator to guide them and comfort them now, and in the days to come. I know that from my Nation of people, we wrap our arms around you and extend words of encouragement.
I am standing with you.
Pilamiya! Mitaku’ oyasin.

Pirates take a chunk of Iceland

REYKJAVIK, Iceland -- Iceland, a nation of seafarers, has been stormed by pirates.

They won't be forming the government, but online freedom advocates the Pirate Party were still big winners in the country's election.

The party, just a few months old, took 5.1 percent of the vote in Saturday's poll, gaining three of the 63 seats in Iceland's parliament, the Althingi.

It is the biggest electoral trophy yet for a movement founded seven years ago in Sweden by a group of rebellious file-sharing geeks and hackers who scoffed at copyright laws.

Now, its Icelandic leader says, the party is "the political arm of the information revolution," dedicated to freedom of expression and political transparency, online and off.

Birgitta Jonsdottir, the most senior of Iceland's three victorious Pirate lawmakers, argues that political and legal structures around the world have not kept pace with the technological change that has transformed the way we live. She compares it to new software that can't run on an old computer.

"We feel that most people, not only in Iceland but all over the world, feel that the institutions that are set up no longer function for us," she said.

"We need to create a new mainframe, a new hardware for this stuff."

The Pirate Party was founded in Sweden in 2006, its name a taunt to the anti-piracy activities of copyright-holders, its logo a buccaneering black flag.

It has spread to countries including the United States, but has had its greatest electoral success in northern Europe.

Sweden has elected two Pirate members to the European Parliament, and last year a Pirate candidate was elected to the Czech Republic's upper house, the Senate. There are several dozen Pirate deputies at state level in Germany, and the party could gain national seats there in September's election.

The Icelandic party was founded late last year, but the volcanic North Atlantic nation - population 320,000 - has a long history as a bastion of technological and political experimentation. Physically isolated near the Arctic Circle, it is one of the world's most wired countries and has been a hub for the online secret-spilling group WikiLeaks. Jonsdottir has worked with WikiLeaks in the past.

In 2011 the country announced it would crowd-source a new constitution, allowing Icelanders through Facebook and other online platforms to submit ideas directly to, and debate with, an elected committee set up to draft the new document.

For some Icelanders, the Pirates made an appealing party of protest. Five years after its debt-swollen banks collapsed during the global credit crisis, the country still faces high inflation, capital controls and a deflated currency, while many Icelanders are still struggling to pay off mortgage debts made bigger by the crisis.

The main contenders in Saturday's election were the center-right parties that led Iceland into the crash and the left-wing coalition that has been implementing painful austerity measures ever since.

"The Pirates have a cool factor," said travel agent Hilmar Einarsson. "They are not typical politicians, but represent ordinary Icelanders. We want our country back, and they understand that more than any other party here in Iceland."

Others found the party's success mystifying.

"It was primarily a shock because their extreme view is considered by most (as) only appealing to punks still stuck in the '80s," said entertainment consultant Daddi Gudbergsson.

Welcome Page | DIRHA

Welcome to the DIRHA EU project!  The DIRHA project addresses the development of voice-enabled automated home environments based on distant-speech interaction in different languages. A distributed microphone network is installed in the rooms of a house in order to monitor selectively acoustic and speech activities observable inside any space, and to eventually run a spoken dialogue session with a given user in order to implement a service or to have access to appliances and other devices. The multi-microphone front-end is based on the use of arrays consisting of analog microphones or Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) digital microphones. The targeted system analyses the given multi-space acoustic scene in a coherent way, by processing in a parallelized fashion simultaneous activities which occur in different rooms, and in case by supporting at the same time the interaction with users who may speak in different areas of the house. These very challenging objectives require advances in different scientific and technical fields. In fact, based on the given network of microphone arrays, multi-microphone front-end processing includes, among the others, tasks as speaker localizati

John Pilger on Margaret Thatcher – “he reminds us there has been a coup in Britain” by The Stringer April 28th, 2013

John Pilger is one of the world’s most prominent journalists, an author, a filmmaker with a litany of documentaries and someone whose fortitude has made a difference to the public record and the public interest.

“It is not enough for journalists to see themselves as mere messengers without understanding the hidden agendas of the message and myths that surround it,” said John Pilger.

In 1979, John Pilger, filmmaker David Munro and photographer Eric Piper entered Cambodia in the wake of the push of the Pol Pot regime out of the capital and into the western border jungles. They brought out a number of world exclusives. The first exclusive took up most of the UK’s Daily Mirror, which sold out. Pilger, Munro and Piper produced an ITV documentary, Year Zero: the Silent Death of Cambodia, which took the genocide in Cambodia to the living rooms of Britain, then Western Europe and then the rest of the world. 

The witness of the suffering of the Cambodian (Khmer) people led many within the British public to donate some $45 million. This was unsolicited - Year Zero: the Silent Death of Cambodia had touched the hearts and souls and the consciousness of the people. 

These financial donations funded the first substantial relief to Cambodia, including life saving antibiotics such as penicillin. 

Pilger and Munro would make a further four films about Cambodia. During the filming of Cambodia Year One the Khmer Rouge had put John Pilger on a ‘death list.’

John Pilger himself described the British reaction to Year Zero: the Silent Death of Cambodia (New Statesman, September 11, 2006):

“Year Zero not only revealed the horror of the Pol Pot years, it showed how Richard Nixon’s and Henry Kissinger’s secret bombing of that country had provided a critical catalyst for the rise of the Khmer Rouge. It also exposed how the West, led by the United States and Britain, was imposing an embargo, like a medieval siege, on the most stricken country on earth. This was a reaction to the fact that Cambodia’s liberator was Vietnam – a country that had come from the side of the Cold War and that had recently defeated the US. Cambodia’s suffering was a wilful revenge. Britain and the US even backed Pol Pot’s demand that his man continue to occupy Cambodia’s seat at the UN, while Margaret Thatcher stopped children’s milk going to the survivors of his nightmare regime. Little of this was reported. Had Year Zero simply described the monster that Pol Pot was, it would have been quickly forgotten. By reporting the collusion of ‘our’ governments, it told a wider truth about how the world was run… Within two days of Year Zero going to air, 40 sacks of post arrived at ATV… in Birmingham – 26,000 first-class letters in the first post alone. The station quickly amassed one million (British) pounds, almost all of it in small amounts. ‘This is for Cambodia,’ wrote a Bristol bus driver, enclosing his week’s wage. Entire pensions were sent, along with entire savings. Petitions arrived at Downing Street, one after the other, for weeks MPs received hundreds of thousands of letters, demanding that British policy change (which did, eventually). And none of it was asked for… I learned that a documentary could reclaim shared historical and political memories, and present their hidden truths. The reward then was a compassionate and informed public, and it still is.”

 By John Pilger     -  In the wake of Thatcher’s departure, I remember her victims. Patrick Warby’s daughter, Marie, was one of them. Marie, aged five, suffered from a bowel deformity and needed a special diet. Without it, the pain was excruciating. Her father was a Durham miner and had used all his savings. It was winter 1985, the Great Strike was almost a year old and the family was destitute. Although her eligibility was not disputed, Marie was denied help by the Department of Social Security. Later, I obtained records of the case that showed Marie had been turned down because her father was “affected by a Trade dispute”.  

The corruption and inhumanity under Thatcher knew no borders. When she came to power in 1979, Thatcher demanded a total ban on exports of milk to Vietnam. The American invasion had left a third of Vietnamese children malnourished. I witnessed many distressing sights, including infants going blind from a lack of vitamins. “I cannot tolerate this,” said an anguished doctor in a Saigon paediatric hospital, as we looked at a dying boy. Oxfam and Save the Children had made clear to the British government the gravity of the emergency. An embargo led by the US had forced up the local price of a kilo of milk up to ten times that of a kilo of meat. Many children could have been restored with milk. Thatcher’s ban held. 

In neighbouring Cambodia, Thatcher left a trail of blood, secretly. In 1980, she demanded that the defunct Pol Pot regime – the killers of 1.7 million people – retain its “right” to represent their victims at the UN. Her policy was vengeance on Cambodia’s liberator, Vietnam. The British representative was instructed to vote with Pol Pot at the World Health Organisation, thereby preventing it from providing help to where it was needed more than anywhere on earth. 

To conceal this outrage, the US, Britain and China, Pol Pot’s main backer, invented a “resistance coalition” dominated by Pol Pot’s Khmer Rouge forces and supplied by the CIA at bases along the Thai border. There was a hitch. In the wake of the Irangate arms-for-hostages debacle, the US Congress had banned clandestine foreign adventures. “In one of those deals the two of them liked to make,” a senior Whitehall official told the Sunday Telegraph, “President Reagan put it to Thatcher that the SAS should take over the Cambodia show. She readily agreed.” 

In 1983, Thatcher sent the SAS to train the “coalition” in its own distinctive brand of terrorism. Seven-man SAS teams arrived from Hong Kong, and British soldiers set about training “resistance fighters” in laying minefields in a country devastated by genocide and the world’s highest rate of death and injury as a result of landmines. 

I reported this at the time, and more than 16,000 people wrote to Thatcher in protest. “I confirm,” she replied to opposition leader Neil Kinnock, “that there is no British government involvement of any kind in training, equipping or co-operating with the Khmer Rouge or those allied to them.” The lie was breathtaking. In 1991, the government of John Major admitted to parliament that the SAS had indeed trained the “coalition”.  “We liked the British,” a Khmer Rouge fighter later told me. “They were very good at teaching us to set booby traps. Unsuspecting people, like children in paddy fields, were the main victims.”

When the journalists and producers of ITV’s landmark documentary, Death on the Rock, exposed how the SAS had run Thatcher’s other death squads in Ireland and Gibraltar, they were hounded by Rupert Murdoch’s “journalists”, then cowering behind the razor wire at Wapping. Although exonerated, Thames TV lost its ITV franchise.

In 1982, the Argentine cruiser, General Belgrano, was steaming outside the Falklands exclusion zone. The ship offered no threat, yet Thatcher gave orders for it to be sunk. Her victims were 323 sailors, including conscripted teenagers. The crime had a certain logic. Among Thatcher’s closest allies were mass murderers – Pinochet in Chile, Suharto in Indonesia, responsible for “many more than one million deaths” (Amnesty International). Although the British state had long armed the world’s leading tyrannies, it was Thatcher who brought a crusading zeal to the deals, talking up the finer points of fighter aircraft engines, hard-bargaining with bribe-demanding Saudi princes. I filmed her at an arms fair, stroking a gleaming missile. “I’ll have one of those!” she said.

In his arms-to-Iraq enquiry, Lord Richard Scott heard evidence that an entire tier of the Thatcher government, from senior civil servants to ministers, had lied and broken the law in selling weapons to Saddam Hussein. These were her “boys”. Thumb through old copies of the Baghdad Observer, and there are pictures of her boys, mostly cabinet ministers, on the front page sitting with Saddam on his famous white couch. There is Douglas Hurd and there is a grinning David Mellor, also of the Foreign Office, around the time his host was ordering the gassing of 5,000 Kurds. Following this atrocity, the Thatcher government doubled trade credits to Saddam.

Perhaps it is too easy to dance on her grave. Her funeral was a propaganda stunt, fit for a dictator: an absurd show of militarism, as if a coup had taken place. And it has. “Her real triumph”, said another of her boys, Geoffrey Howe, a Thatcher minister, “was to have transformed not just one party but two, so that when Labour did eventually return, the great bulk of Thatcherism was accepted as irreversible.”  

In 1997, Thatcher was the first former prime minister to visit Tony Blair after he entered Downing Street. There is a photo of them, joined in rictus: the budding war criminal with his mentor. When Ed Milliband, in his unctuous “tribute”, caricatured Thatcher as a “brave” feminist hero whose achievements he personally “honoured”, you knew the old killer had not died at all.

Source: The Sangai Express

Imphal, April 30 2013: A high level official meeting presided by Chief Minister O Ibobi today decided to complete the work of biometrics enrolment within two months which would be taken up under the National Population Register.

The meeting was convened following strong instructions from the Centre regarding the biometrics enrolment programme.

The meeting was attended by Deputy Chief Minister, Ministers, Chief Secretary, Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Census Director, Deputy Commissioners and officials of MANITRON and In-Media, an agency.

Speaking to media persons after the meeting, Government spokesman M Okendro stated that the meeting decided to complete the biometrics enrolment work by June 30 .

To ensure that biometrics enrolment work is completed within the said deadline, Ministers, MLAs and public representatives would cooperate fully with the officials concerned.

After collecting biometrics data such as iris image, fingerprints and photographs, each and every citizen would be given an unique identification (Aadhar) number.

This Aadhar number would be made a compulsory requirement while opening accounts in banks or post offices.

The same number would be put into use while selecting beneficiaries of schemes sponsored by the Centre or State Government, Okendro stated.

After collecting all the data by June 30, the data compilation portion would be completed by July 31.From August 1, only those who have been allotted Aadhar numbers would be made eligible for such schemes like MGNREGS, IAY, old age pension etc.

In-Media would do the biometrics enrolment work in Ukhrul, Bishnupur, Senpati and Thoubal while MANITRON would be assigned to Imphal West, Imphal East, Chandel, Tamenglong and Churachandpur.

Okendro appealed to all the people to come out and participate in the biometrics enrolment work in accordance to the schedule which would be worked out by Deputy Commissioners.

To a query, the Minister claimed that biometrics data collection has been completed up to 35 per cent so far.

He also admitted that the project is going slow in Ukhrul and Senapati.
