Crooked Thinking

I blog about politics, comic books, video games, books, movies, Hannibal, and anything that interests me. This is also a personal blog. I usually follow back.

Two Palestinians in the occupied West Bank just north of Jerusalem have been killed by Israeli police and more than 55 others injured while protesting in support of those under siege in Gaza. Israel’s military offensive there has seen at least 800 Palestinians dead and more than 5,250 injured.

Enough Is Enough! Break The Silence In Solidarity With Gaza!
On July 20, 2014 Doctors without Borders issued a statement:
Israel Must Stop Bombing Trapped Civilians. Since the beginning of Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip, the majority of the dead and wounded in Gaza are civilians, and medical workers are also coming under fire, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) said.
On Wed Jul 23, 2014 Israel issued an evacuation warning to Shifa hospital.
On July 15th 2014 Doctors treating patients in Gaza accused Israel of using experimental weapons (DIME) on Palestinian civilians. DIME weapons are not in any treaty, are not banned, but given that the US mindlessly vetoes any resolution against Israel at the United Nation that matters little.
And it is not just now, not suddenly. The Israeli military-industrial-complex seems to have a habit of using occupied territories as lab: As the pharmaceutical industry is a highly globalized arena, the “CAPTIVE ECONOMY - THE PHARMACEUTICAL INDUSTY AND THE ISRAELI OCCUPATION” report from 2012 reveals some of the ways in which Israel’s occupation of Palestinian lands offers opportunities to exploit the captive Palestinian market.

Mexico’s Campesinos March for Land Rights, Against Fracking

An estimated 50,000 campesinos and supporters turned out to march in Mexico City on Wednesday. Agricultural organizations from throughout Mexico attended.

Under the banner “The Countryside Is for All,” attendees marched in support of farmers, food sovereignty, Indigenous land rights, and against recent energy reforms that would allow for fracking and appropriation of farm lands.

Organizers were able to obtain a meeting with Interior Secretary Osorio Chong to discuss concerns.
