Chris Hedges: The Issue Before Us is Death

“The corporate forces that have commodified the natural world for profit have also commodified human beings. We are as expendable to global corporations as the Barrier Reef or the great sequoias. These corporations and ruling elites, which have orchestrated the largest transference of wealth upward in human history, with globe’s richest 1 percent owning half the world’s wealth, kneel, and force us to kneel, before the dictates of the global marketplace. They have seized control of our governments, extinguishing democracy, corrupting law and building alliances with neofascists and authoritarians as the ruling ideology of neoliberalism is exposed as a con. They have constructed pervasive and sophisticated systems of internal security, wholesale surveillance and militarized police, along with criminalizing poverty, to crush dissent.” — Chris Hedges, Confronting the Culture of Death

The yellow vests protest – raw footage of police brutality

Two videos from YT on the ongoing yellow vest protests in France. The first one gives a graphic view of the force of the police there (80K of them, and previous reports say they are believed to have been infiltrated by EU German forces) & the second a glimpse into the very brutal police retaliation, rubber bullets at close very range, (dropping tear gas from helicopters in other videos), also graphic footage of outright beating of innocent by standers, one an elderly man at a bus stop with his wife that has gone viral. Disturbing times. Just watching this situation.
