A report released last year by Global Witness, found that 185 killings occurred in 2015 – a 60 percent increase over the previous year, and “the deadliest year on record.”
The majority of the murders were committed against activists involved in opposing logging, mining, agribusiness and dam projects, with Brazil’s logging protestors being the most common victims of violence.
In Brazil’s Amazon states – and elsewhere throughout the world – the murderers are being shielded by “collusion between state and corporate interests.”
“In cases that are well-documented we found 16 were related to paramilitary groups, 13 to the army, 11 to the police, and 11 to private security — strongly implying state or company links to the killings. There was little evidence that the authorities either fully investigated the crimes or took actions to bring the perpetrators to account.”
Governments are ‘turning a blind eye’
And, although the Global Witness report finds these trends more prevalent in locations such as South America and Africa, the United States government is also complicit in the persecution of activists, labeling them as terrorists, and using infiltration and illegal surveillance tactics against their organizations.
In fact, many governments throughout the world are not only “turning a blind eye to corruption, illegalities and environmental degradation,” but are also publicly condemning activists as being “anti-development.”
The sad truth is that most of the violence is being perpetrated against indigenous people trying to protect their land from pillaging by loggers, ranchers and plantation owners.
Indigenous people accounted for 40 percent of the total deaths.
Anti-logging activists were the most frequently targeted, but the palm oil industry in places like the Philippines was also responsible for a number of deaths.
From Free Thought Project:
“The top five most deadly countries for environmental activists and land defenders were Brazil, with 50 deaths; the Philippines, with 33; Colombia, with 26; and Peru and Nicaragua, with 12 fatal attacks each.”
Globalization: the human and environmental cost
Globalization has created a whole new level of government and corporate collusion in terms of exploiting resources and crushing any opposition.
Free trade agreements such as the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) will make it even more difficult to oppose global corporate interests, leaving activists squeezed between legal obstacles and government-sanctioned persecution.
The TPP will weaken regulatory agencies globally, making it easier for corporations to exploit natural resources, and leaving little legal recourse for those who oppose them.
And, as long as governments continue to turn a blind eye to violence against activists, while simultaneously passing legislation favoring corporations, the problem will only continue to grow worse.
Global Witness is calling for the protection of activists and their right to speak out, as well as a full investigation into, and prosecution of, those responsible for the violence.

And, as corporate influence becomes more powerful by the day, it’s crucial for the average citizen to become as self-reliant as possible. Don’t wait for the total collapse of the system; start preparing today.
It’s becoming increasingly clear that our governments do not represent the people anymore, but rather the corporations who get them elected while lining their pockets. And these corporations have shown that they will stop at nothing – even murder – to get what they want.
The power structure is fracturing and losing ground on every front. This includes the medical/industrial complex that has been the source of immeasurable and irreparable suffering for far too long. Thanks to the film VAXXED, the lethal dangers of vaccinations are finally being exposed. A major VAXXED screening event is now scheduled for Northern California on August 5th that will include the VAXXED film producers, pediatricians, and climate engineering presentation from geoengineeringwatch.org (more details coming on this event). On the wider front, May, 2016, broke yet another all time climate heat record. It was the 13th consecutive month of record breaking global temperatures. We are already descending into a runaway greenhouse event with climate engineering helping to fuel the overall fire. Record heat, record floods, record droughts, and unprecedented weather whiplash is now the norm. The Florida terrorist attack is playing perfectly into the hands of the power brokers and their corporate media weapons of mass distraction. With the biosphere implosion accelerating, corporations like Shell Oil use private mercenary armies to police their pillaging of countries like Nigeria.
All the while elements of our government do all they can to protect the military/carbon fuel/ industrial complex and to hide their crimes. The Australian government is doing all they can to hide the fact that much of the barrier reef just died in the geological blink of an eye. The Saudi dictatorship is helping to fund the Clinton presidential campaign, while using US made cluster bombs to kill innocent men, women and children in Yemen. We are told by FOX news that “ISIS may take over the world”, but what countries are actually part of the overall ISIS support system? The USA, Turkey, and Israel are three.
How can we remain sane and focused through the gathering storm? It is imperative for us all to examine our believes, our perspectives, and our philosophies. Solace lies in an unyielding commitment to the greater good, make your voice heard.
Of the many great books Dr. Joseph P. Farrell has published, this one is one of my favorites.
Constantly, for many years now he has been putting out high quality information, and this book is no different.
Covert Wars And Breakaway Civilizations – The Secret Space Program, Celestial Psyops & Hidden Conflicts by Dr. Joseph P. Farrell, is a mind bending expedition not only into the abstruse facets/subjects that have helped mold our society, but also showcasing how these components are being used to carve out a different reality – a more sinister one. And parallel to that is arguably one collective powerful group [at minimum] that’s breaking away.
‘Breaking Away’, is an off-shoot of the term ‘Breakaway Civilization’, which was coined by scholar and renown researcher Richard Dolan. Dolan has written an extensive and rather thought-provoking synopsis of what a Breakaway Civilization is in his analysis titled A Breakaway Civilization: What It Is, & What It Means For Us
Getting back on track, opening the journey into this book, Farrell lays the foundation by covering the financial nexus that has fueled much of the malice that we have seen within the financial sector, and which has naturally dovetailed into other arenas as well.
Economic warfare is a topic that doesn’t get enough light by mainstream, and even alternative media circles to some extent. However, the modern derivative [no pun intended] of financial warfare has some of its nascent stages within the earlier parts of the 20th Century. A prime example of this is Operation Bernhard. This type of operation was the brainchild of the Nazi’s during WWII, and its main purpose was to “destabilise the British economy via economic warfare by flooding the global and British Empire with Forged Bank of England” notes.
This sophisticated method of economic warfare of using British pound notes was phenomenally trenchant not only because it took part in an industrial scale, as Farrell mentions, but also because as is mentioned by the author, “They were, in effect, to be British pound notes”. That’s the type of forgeries that were being carried out by the Nazis. Why is this important? Because, as alluded to earlier, this helped lay the financial foundation for what would become the Nazi War Machine
Moving on, coupled with the financial component that is Operation Bernhard, Farrell moves forward to a more modern operation that involves the recent Bearer Bond Scandal, as well as how the Vatican dovetails into that as well. The so called “Kennedy Bonds” are touched upon lightly as well. Farrell does a rather thorough analysis of these Bonds within his book, and with a fine-tooth comb picks apart some minute [i.e. monumental] details that are not so subtle in regards to space.
All of these abstruse yet notable avenues lead towards what Farrell has repeatedly named, a hidden system Of Finance. This particular system is what was created in the mid 20th century, and has been arguably used to fund a large majority of the more nefarious technological programs that take place behind the scenes as it were.
In a way, all of these topics [and more] segue into bulk data in many different ways. This of course merges with the topic of bulk data collection. And on this topic, Farrell postulates that the PROMIS system, which is related to the Inslaw affair, is a profound technology used to carry this type of bulk spying. Why is this important? Because as Farrell alludes in his book:
“According to Seymour, Inslaw founder Bill Hamilton had come to his own research conclusions. He believed “…after more than two decades of research, that the modified version of his PROMIS software had been used for money laundering of drug profits to fund unauthorized intelligence operations…” Indeed, such a powerful program would not only allow the tracking of covert financial activities, and even for the existence of an entire covert financial system, but it would also allow something equally important for such a system to exist, namely, the ability to cover its tracks and obfuscate its activities by using the “backdoor” to modify the actual numbers of transactions…say, for example, the amounts of gold actually in existence. Such a tool would allow the same amount of gold to be used as the backing or collateral to float securities over and over different issues.” 
As if that’s not enough, the PROMIS system has darker components, but for that, you will have to read Farrell’s book.
The gold alluded to the passage cited above, is the main component in Operation Golden Lily. Farrell tackles how Operation Golden Lily, as well as the Bearer Bonds, were used in the establishment of the hidden system of finance spoken about already. As the author has mentioned countless times, the amount of Gold in circulation, by any and all precise forms of analysis, is not capable of being narrowed down and honed in on. There is no unquestionable verifiable source that one can cite as conclusive in respect to the amount of Gold in circulation in the system. Different researchers will give readers different estimates of these amounts, and as Farrell has alluded to if am not mistake, this is done on purpose, to obfuscate the real amount of Gold in circulation. This is because, as Farrell estimates, the amount of Gold in circulation might be off by an order of magnitude. A preposterous hypothesis to some perhaps, but, when taken in conjunction with all the data provided by Farrell, as well as the monumental work of Sterling and Peggy Seagrave in Gold Warriors, and other researchers as well, one begins to see a larger picture that has been clearly veiled over for very nefarious reasons. Some of these reasons are honed in on by Farrell in this book and in his interviews regarding this subject.
Other subjects that dovetail disturbingly quite well into this book is 9/11 targets, the Bushes, and many other parts of this orchestrated event . The components of 9/11 that Farrell harpoons on are oft-overlooked sections by most 9/11 researchers, but ones that have rather resounding effects into what is still taking place to this day.
Farrell’s theory as to why the covert operation that was 9/11 was undertaken is spoken about, and it’s something that no other researcher out there has even touched, nor come close too in my estimation. The author’s hypothesis, when all the data presented is taken into consideration, is arguably incredibly strong. This can be noted by the capabilities of the orchestrators of the attack, as well as what they stood to lose by a possible exposure of their hidden financial capacities if such attack did not take place.
One particular subject that has far reaching implications is the weaponization of planet earth. Regarding this, Farrell covers not only the technologies of Geophysical Warfare, but also how this couples rather disturbingly with Kardashev’s Class Of Civilizations theory. Regarding Geophysical Warfare, Farrell looks through various lenses, and even hones in on an Air Force study called Weather As A Force Multiplier: Owning The Weather In 2025.
Such power gives those in control, as writer of Weather Farfare: The Military’s Plan To Draft Mother Nature, Jerry Smith states, the ability to undertake “war covertly by causing droughts, storms, volcanic eruptions and floods” and thus raising the question “how would the general public know if such war were being fought?”
Farrell even takes a gander at some of Charles L. Chandler’s work in respect to the Electromagnetic Nature of Tornadoes. This component was definitely unexpected but very fascinating.
Given the highly advanced technological dissertation in the book, of course, no work would be complete without at least taking a gander at Nikola Tesla’s work. Here, Farrell follows how Tesla’s work dovetailed with geophysical weapons, and then some. From there, not only does the author carry out some detailed analysis in a few directions, but he also gives some of the powerful implications that are set forth from there. This chapter alone will blow a hole in most people’s conventional views of Earthquakes, and many other ‘natural’ phenomena.
Dozens of pages, if not more, could be written about Farrell’s coverage, and the disturbing implications of all that he covers. That still wouldn’t be enough, because there are so many components that merge into what’s been called “Full Spectrum Dominance” that it boggles the mind of those which know not of what’s taking place.
Farrell also buttresses his book with a thorough view into the “Airship Mystery” of the 19th and early 20th century. This is quite notable, for within these observations one can see how the nascent stages – the schematics – of a Breakaway Civilization were developed.
Another oft-overlooked, but quite important issue that is covered is that of UFOs and Nuclear Weapons. Countless events have taken place in which UFOs have shown their capability to activate nuclear missiles. Yes, you read that right. This has been covered by many researches, most notably Robert Hastings covers it incisively in his books UFOs And Nukes: Extraordinary Encounters At Nuclear Weapon Sites. Farrell covers this aspect, as having the most powerful weapons [within the public realm] be able to be toyed with, by others – whomever they may be – shows capacity that’s oft-covered up by the mainstream.
Given the powers that those piloting the UFOs were showcasing, as Farrell notes, “The technological capability of the UFO presented a direct challenge to the aura of “full spectrum dominance’ being evolved by the elite during the postwar period, and hence, the UFO presence could not be openly acknowledged, at least, that is, until some technological parity had been achieved.”
In all honesty, all of what Farrell covers is very intriguing, but not without its darker implications. If any of what has been mentioned fascinates you, get this book. You will not regret it.
Most people think we live in a word where the impossible can’t take place; where reality is by most measures boring. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Not only does this book show how much of what people would call Science Fiction does take place, but lays the foundation to view modern, and future warfare in a different light.
Gone are the days in which the use of a sword as a weapon, would prompt the enemy to create a shield, which would prompt the counter enemy to create a cannon, and so on. Linear warfare for all intents and purposes its losing its effectiveness, except for in theater.
Humanity has walked through a dangerous door, in which warfare is not only waged via economic means, but also via propaganda, social engineering, entrainment technology, weaponized foods, GeoEngineering and so on. Coupled with that are non-linear weapons being used, in which one country creates a storm, while the other can reply with a hurricane, and the next can use an Earthquake, and even possibly Tsunamis as well. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. And the thing is, most of the populace is blind to it because they think its always “Mother Nature” pulling the strings. Only if it were that simple.
If you’re still skeptical, why not take a gander at, as was mentioned earlier, the Air Force study called Weather As A Force Multiplier: Owning The Weather In 2025. That alone will blow most people’s mind into what the Airforce was planning to accomplish. That’s in the public record as well.
If you’re looking for more info, as well, make sure to take a gander at Farrell’s other two books in this series:
This entire trilogy will allow you to view the world in a whole new lense, and realize that history is not what we’re being taught. History is about what lies in the shadows. And we can only see that, if light is cast upon it. This book sheds plenty of light in those direction where darkness has seeped into.
There are countless other topics that are covered, and for that, you’ll have to read this book.

Modern science is only beginning to catch up to the wisdom of the ancients: plants possess sentience and a rudimentary form of intelligence.
Plants are far more intelligent and capable than we given them credit. In fact, provocative research from 2010 published in Plant Signaling & Behavior proposes that since they cannot escape environmental stresses in the manner of animals, they have developed a “sophisticated, highly responsive and dynamic physiology,” which includes information processes such as “biological quantum computing” and “cellular light memory” which could be described as forms of plant intelligence. Titled, “Secret life of plants: from memory to intelligence,” the study highlights one particular “super power” of plants indicative of their success as intelligent beings:
There are living trees that germinated long before Jesus Christ was born. What sort of life wisdom evolved in plants to make it possible to survive and propagate for so long a time in the same place they germinated?”
According to the researchers, plants “plants actually work as a biological quantum computing device that is capable to process quantum information encrypted in light intensity and in its energy.” This information processing includes a mechanism for processing memorized information. For example:
plants can store and use information from the spectral composition of light for several days or more to anticipate changes that might appear in the near future in the environment, for example, for anticipation of pathogen attack.”
According to the study, “plants can actually think and remember.”
Moreover, plant not only possess a mechanism for information gathering and processing, but appear to exercise agency or “choice” vis-à-vis different scenarios:
different group of chloroplasts and cells in the same leaf under identical constant and stable light, temperature and relative humidity condition have different opinion “what to do” in such conditions and tests different scenarios of possible future development.”
The study also offers an explanation for why plants absorb more light energy than is needed for photosynthesis alone:
Another possible answer to the above question is a light training of young naïve leaves. Let’s imagine when young leaf or flower is emerging out of a plant, it would be nice for that leaf or flower to know about the conditions in which it is going to emerge. Older, more experienced leaves that actually are acclimated to outside conditions can train naïve emerging young leaves with the PEPS [photoelectrophysiological signaling ]and cellular light memory mechanisms. This explains why plants possess a natural capacity to absorb more light energy than that required for photosynthetic CO2 assimilation. They need this absorbed energy in excess for optimization and training of light acclimatory and immune defenses.”
The authors leave us with the provocative conclusion:
Our results suggest that plants are intelligent organisms capable of performing a sort of thinking process (understood as at the same time and non-stress conditions capable of performing several different scenarios of possible future definitive responses), and capable of memorizing this training.17 Indeed leaves in the dark are able to not only “see” the light,8,34 but also are able to differently remember its spectral composition and use this memorized information to increase their Darwinian fitness.”
Why is this discovery important?
There are many reasons why recognizing the sentience and intelligence of plants may have positive implications for the future of humanity. For one, it helps us all to transcend the dominant worldview that non-human life forms are best defined in strictly mechanistic terms, and that attributing a “life essence” or consciousness to them is a form of magical thinking. French philosopher Maurice Merleau-Pointy called this world view the “Great Object,” namely, that everything in the universe is compromised of material objects externally related to one another, and with consciousness merely an ephemeral subjectivity found only in humans.
To the contrary, if we open ourselves to the possibility that we are all participants in an interconnected web of life, as many indigenous peoples believed and actually experienced things to be, destroying the natural world simply to serve the essentially suicidal infinite economic growth model will be identified for the insanity that it is. If we recognize, as biologist James Lovelock proposed, the Earth as a whole should be looked upon more like a self-regulating organisms (Gaia hypothesis), or as mycologist Paul Stamet envisions, that there is a fungi-based internet within the ground connecting all living things on the planet in an information-sharing network, we will be less likely to both perceive and to treat the natural world as “other” to be dominated.
Mainstream media sources are in so many cases completely omitting extremely dire news from the public and yet these same sources devote excessive coverage to absurd and irrelevent stories. A case in point is Northern California’s “Record Searchlight” newspaper. The editor of this publication, Silas Lyons, completely blacked out any coverage whatsoever of the recent major anti climate engineering event in their hometown of Redding, California (even though CBS came all the way from Sacramento to cover the event). Though the Searchlight did find plenty of room in their newspaper to cover “Big Foot”. The ongoing climate engineering programs are a real and present danger to the population. Media censorship of such critical information can only be considered criminal behavior. Once the geoengineering issue can no longer be hidden, and the population fully realizes that their media has been an accomplice to crimes which have irreparably harmed them, legal action should then commence against all guilty parties. Blind denial is also epidemic in the ranks of the environmental communities. On Saturday, November 28th, I attended a Global Climate March in Chico, California that was put on by 350.org. The photos below are of the anti-geoengineering activists that attended the march. An unfortunately high percentage of the 350.org marchers did not seem to want to know about the massive climate engineering elephant in the room that is mathematically the single greatest climate disrupting component (though of course there are many other factors). In the meantime, while so many choose to stay in their bubble comfort zones, the biosphere is collapsing, the global economy is disintegrating, and we are in free fall toward WWlll. We need everyone that is already awake to help in the effort to sound the alarm, each and every day. Once populations are forced to wake, a paradigm shift will follow.
