Author and investigative journalist Jim Marrs talked about why he believes the International Elite are using economic collapse, man-made disease, and erosion of civil liberties to take down America. He referred to the US as a “zombie nation” because citizens and the country itself are trillions of dollars in debt. JFK ended up dead not longer after he issued $4.2 billion in currency that was printed by the Treasury instead of the Federal Reserve, which in reality is a group of 12 banks that charge interest, he noted.

“They’re setting us up for a really big fall– because the United States has been a free nation and a republic,” and the biggest stumbling block to their plan for a New World Order— a global socialist state broken into three economic blocks (as George Orwell predicted in 1984), Marrs laid out.

The US Special Operations Command (USSOC) has conducted “training exercises” over Minneapolis. In a twofold effort, the US Armed Forces are acclimating the American public to seeing military everywhere, as well as being able to train their soldiers in real time on US streets in a manipulative effort to circumvent Posse Comitatus.

Both the local police department and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) collaborated, according to authorities to decide on training exercise times and locations although the general public was unaware of these war games until they were evident in their local skies.

The USSOC stated:

If you see military helicopters flying low over Minneapolis, don’t be alarmed. They’re just training in an urban environment. The U.S. Special Operations Command will be conducting exercises until the beginning of September. This week they’re using helicopters, including Black Hawks.

This urban warfare…

Carnegie Institute Calls For Spraying Aerosols To Block The Sun

‘Global warming solution’ is already being done through chemtrails’

Paul Joseph Watson
Infowars.com
Thursday, June 7, 2012

A Carnegie Institution for Science proposal to spray aerosol particles into the upper atmosphere to block out the sun and “tackle global warming” would turn sunny blue skies into a hazy white, a process that many contend is already taking place via the chemtrails phenomenon.

“Blue skies would fade to hazy white if geoengineers inject light-scattering aerosols into the upper atmosphere to offset global warming. Critics have already warned that this might happen, but now the effect has been quantified,”reports New Scientist.

“Releasing sulphate aerosols high in the atmosphere should in theory reduce global temperatures by reflecting a small percentage of the incoming sunlight away from the Earth. However, the extra particles would also scatter more of the remaining light into the atmosphere. This would reduce by 20 per cent the amount of sunlight that takes a direct route to the ground, and it would increase levels of softer, diffuse scattered light, says Ben Kravitz of the Carnegie Institution for Science in Stanford, California.”

However, far from being a mere proposal, an abundance of evidence clearly suggests that geoengineering projects focused around loading the upper atmosphere with particles, with complete disregard for the health and environmental side-effects, are already taking place.

Scientists now admit that vapor trails from airplanes are creating “artificial clouds” that block out the sun. This is no longer a matter of debate. The chemtrail “conspiracy theorists,” who were ridiculed for pointing out that from the mid-90′s onwards contrails from jet planes were lingering for hours and forming artificial clouds, have been proven correct.

Reading University’s Professor Keith Shine told the Daily Mail that the clouds “formed by aircraft fumes could linger ‘for hours’, depriving those areas under busy flight paths, such as London and the Home Counties, of summer sunshine.”

The report also makes reference to a 2009 Met Office study which found that high-level winds did not disperse contrails that later formed into clouds which covered an astonishing 20,000 miles.

As we have documented, geoengineering programs based around the premise of artificial aerosols were already in operation years ago, including at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Savannah River National Laboratory in Aiken, S.C, which in 2009 began conducting studies which involved shooting huge amounts of particulate matter, in this case “porous-walled glass microspheres,” into the stratosphere.

Another program under the Department of Energy’s Atmospheric Science Program is directed towards, “developing comprehensive understanding of the atmospheric processes that control the transport, transformation, and fate of energy related trace chemicals and particulate matter.”

FDA Lists 92 Symptoms from Nutrasweet (Aspartame)
(including Death!)

Please Note: Nutrasweet is in Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi

Update: Aspartame – NutraSweet – Is now called AminoSweet

(researcher for twenty years on such subjects)
This article originally appeared on http://www.dorway.com

Note: This information required a Freedom Of Information Act request to pry it from the reluctant hands of the FDA.

Nutrasweet (brand name for Aspartame) was not approved until 1981, in dry foods. For over eight years the FDA refused to approve it because of the seizures and brain tumors this drug produced in lab animals. The FDA continued to refuse to approve it until President Reagan took office (a friend of Searle) and fired the FDA Commissioner who wouldn’t approve it. Dr. Arthur Hull Hayes was appointed as commissioner. Even then there was so much opposition to approval that a Board of Inquiry was set up. The Board said: “Do not approve aspartame”. Dr. Hayes OVERRULED his own Board of Inquiry.

Shortly after Commissioner Arthur Hull Hayes, Jr., approved the use of aspartame in carbonated beverages, he left for a position with G.D. Searle’s Public Relations firm.

Long-Term Damage. It appears to cause slow, silent damage in those unfortunate enough to not have immediate reactions and a reason to avoid it. It may take one year, five years, 10 years, or 40 years, but it seems to cause some reversible and some irreversible changes in health over long-term use.

METHANOL (AKA WOOD ALCOHOL/POISON) (10% OF ASPARTAME) Methanol/wood alcohol is a deadly poison. People may recall that methanol was the poison that has caused some “skid row” alcoholics to end up blind or dead. Methanol is gradually released in the small intestine when the methyl group of aspartame encounter the enzyme chymotrypsin.

The absorption of methanol into the body is sped up considerably when free methanol is ingested. Free methanol is created from aspartame when it is heated to above 86 Fahrenheit (30 Centigrade). This would occur when aspartame-containing product is improperly stored or when it is heated (e.g., as part of a “food” product such as Jello).

Methanol breaks down into formic acid and formaldehyde in the body. Formaldehyde is a deadly neurotoxin. An EPA assessment of methanol states that methanol “is considered a cumulative poison due to the low rate of excretion once it is absorbed. In the body, methanol is oxidized to formaldehyde and formic acid; both of these metabolites are toxic.” The recommend a limit of consumption of 7.8 mg/day. A one-liter (approx. 1 quart) aspartame-sweetened beverage contains about 56 mg of methanol. Heavy users of aspartame-containing products consume as much as 250 mg of methanol daily or 32 times the EPA limit.

The most well known problems from methanol poisoning are vision problems. Formaldehyde is a known carcinogen, causes retinal damage, interferes with DNA replication, and causes birth defects. Due to the lack of a couple of key enzymes, humans are many times more sensitive to the toxic effects of methanol than animals. Therefore, tests of aspartame or methanol on animals do not accurately reflect the danger for humans. As pointed out by Dr Woodrow C. Monte, Director of the Food Science and Nutrition Laboratory at Arizona State University, “There are no human or mammalian studies to evaluate the possible mutagenic, teratogenic, or carcinogenic effects of chronic administration of methyl alcohol.”

It has been pointed out that fruit juices and alcoholic beverages contain small amounts of methanol. It is important to remember, that the methanol in natural products never appears alone. In every case, ethanol is present, usually in much higher amounts. Ethanol is an antidote for methanol toxicity in humans.

The troops of Desert Storm were “treated” to large amounts of aspartame-sweetened beverages which had been heated to over 86 degrees F. in the Saudi Arabian sun. Many of them returned home with numerous disorders similar to what has been seen in persons who have been chemically poisoned by formaldehyde. The free methanol in the beverages may have been a contributing factor in these illnesses. Other breakdown products ofaspartame such as DKP, may also have been a factor.

In a 1993 act that can only be described as “unconscionable”, the FDA approved aspartame as an ingredient in numerous food items that would always be heated to above 86°degrees F (30°Degrees C).

Much worse, on 27 June 1996, without public notice, the FDA removed all restrictions from aspartame allowing it to be used in everything, including all heated and baked goods.

The truth about aspartame’s toxicity is far different than what the NutraSweet Company would have you readers believe. In February of 1994, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services released the listing of adverse reactions reported to the FDA (DHHS 1994). Aspartame accounted for more than 75% of all adverse reactions reported to the FDA’s Adverse Reaction Monitoring System (ARMS). By the FDA’s own admission fewer then ONE PERCENT of those who have problems with something they consume ever report it to the FDA. This balloons the almost 10,000 complaints they once had to around a million.

However, the FDA has a record keeping problem (they never did respond to the certified letter from the WEBMASTER of this site a major victim!) and they tend to discourage or even misdirect complaints, at least on aspartame. The fact remains, though, that MOST victims don’t have a clue that aspartame may be the cause of their many problems! Many reactions to aspartame were very serious including seizures and death.

Those reactions included:

Abdominal Pain
Anxiety attacks
arthritis
asthma
Asthmatic Reactions
Bloating, Edema (Fluid Retention)
Blood Sugar Control Problems (Hypoglycemia or Hyperglycemia)

How it happens:

Methanol, from aspartame, is released in the small intestine when the methyl group of aspartame encounters the enzyme chymotrypsin (Stegink 1984, page 143). Free methanol begins to form in liquid aspartame-containing products at temperatures above 86 degrees F. also within the human body.

The methanol is then converted to formaldehyde. The formaldehyde converts to formic acid – ant sting poison. Toxic formic acid is used as an activator to strip epoxy and urethane coatings. Imagine what it does to your tissues! (Note from Stephanie Relfe – Even the Australian Cancer Council says that there are NO safe levels of formaldehyde).

Phenylalanine and aspartic acid, 90% of aspartame, are amino acids normally used in synthesis of protoplasm when supplied by the foods we eat. But when unaccompanied by other amino acids we use [there are 20], they are neurotoxic.

That is why a warning for Phenylketonurics is found on EQUAL and other aspartame products. Phenylketenurics are 2% of the population with extreme sensitivity to this chemical unless it’s present in food. It gets you too, causing brain disorders and birth defects! Finally, the phenyalanine breaks down into DKP, a brain tumor agent.

In other words: Aspartame converts to dangerous by-products that have no natural countermeasures. A dieter’s empty stomach accelerates these conversions and amplifies the damage. Components of aspartame go straight to the brain, damage that causes headaches, mental confusion, seizures and faulty balance. Lab rats and other test animals died of brain tumors.

Despite the claims of Monsanto and bedfellows:

1. Methanol from alcohol and juices does not get converted to formaldehyde to any significant extent. There is very strong evidence to confirm this fact for alcoholic beverages and fairly strong evidence for juices.

2. Formaldehyde obtained from methanol is very toxic in *very small* doses as seen by recent research.

3. Aspartame causes chronic toxicity reactions/damage due to the methanol to formaldehyde and other break down products despite what is claimed otherwise by the very short, industry-funded experiments using a test substance that is chemically different and absorbed differently than what is available to the general public. “Strangely enough”, almost all independent studies show that aspartame can cause health problems.

4. A common ploy from Monsanto is to claim that aspartame is “safe” yet a few select people may have “allergic” reactions to it. This is typical Monsanto nonsense, of course. Their own research shows that it does not cause “allergic” reactions. It is there way of trying to minimize and hide the huge numbers of toxicity reactions and damage that people are experiencing from the long-term use of aspartame.

Summary

Given the following points, it is definitely premature for researchers to discount the role of methanol in aspartame side effects:

1. The amount of methanol ingested from aspartame is unprecedented in human history. Methanol from fruit juice ingestion does not even approach the quantity of methanol ingested from aspartame, especially in persons who ingest one to three liters (or more) of diet beverages every day. Unlike methanol from aspartame, methanol from natural products is probably not absorbed or converted to its toxic metabolites in significant amounts as discussed earlier.

2. Lack of laboratory-detectable changes in plasma formic acid and formaldehyde levels do not preclude damage being caused by these toxic metabolites. Laboratory-detectable changes in formate levels are often not found in short exposures to methanol.

3. Aspartame-containing products often provide little or no nutrients which may protect against chronic methanol poisoning and are often consumed in between meals. Persons who ingest aspartame-containing products are often dieting and more likely to have nutritional deficiencies than persons who take the time to make fresh juices.

4. Persons with certain health conditions or on certain drugs may be much more susceptible to chronic methanol poisoning.

5. Chronic diseases and side effects from slow poisons often build silently over a long period of time. Many chronic diseases which seem to appear suddenly have actually been building in the body over many years.

6. An increasing body of research is showing that many people are highly sensitive to low doses of formaldehyde in the environment. Environmental exposure to formaldehyde and ingestion of methanol (which converts to formaldehyde) from aspartame likely has a cumulative deleterious effect.

7. Formic acid has been shown to slowly accumulate in various parts of the body. Formic acid has been shown to inhibit oxygen metabolism.

8. The are a very large and growing number of persons are experiencing chronic health problems similar to the side effects of chronic methanol poisoning when ingesting aspartame-containing products for a significant length of time. This includes many cases of eye damage similar to the type of eye damage seen in methanol poisoning cases.

Note: It often takes at least sixty days without any aspartame NutraSweet to see a significant improvement. (Note from Stephanie Relfe: Drink plenty of good water. Preferably water filtered by reverse osmosis. If not that, spring water. Not tap, distilled or mineral water).

Check all labels very carefully (including vitamins and pharmaceuticals). Look for the word “aspartame” on the label and avoid it. (Also, it is a good idea to avoid “acesulfame-k” or “sunette.”) Finally, avoid getting nutrition information from junk food industry PR organizations such as IFIC or organizations that accept large sums of money from the junk and chemical food industry such as the American Dietetic Association.

If you are a user of any products with aspartame, and you have physical, visual, mental problems take the 60-day no aspartame test. If, after two months with no aspartame your symptoms are either gone, or are much less severe, please get involved to get this neurotoxin off the market. Write a letter to the FDA, with a copy to Betty Martini (for proof of how the FDA doesn’t keep proper records). Write your congressmen. Return products containing aspartame to the point of purchase… for a FULL refund. Make a big stink if they WON’T give you a full refund! Tell all your friends and family… and if they stop using aspartame and also “wake up well”… get them involved in the same way.

Aspartame is an “approved sweetener” because of a few greedy and dishonest people who place profits above human life and well-being. With the FDA and our Congress culpable, only an INFORMED and ACTIVE public will affects its reclassification from “food additive” to TOXIC DRUG, and removed from the human food chain.

From Stephane Relfe: Note that Michael J. Fox, who was spokesperson for Pepsi, has an old man’s disease (Parkinson’s Disease) at only 30 years old!

Also Note: Aspartame has one use that I know of – it makes an EXCELLENT ant poison. Put a few tablespoons on a nest of fire ants and see how long before they disappear.

Zimbabwe diamond mine abuses ‘continue’

Diamond miners in Zimbabwe

It is alleged widespread human rights abuses took place in Marange

A human rights group says it is concerned about “continuing abuses” at diamond mines in Zimbabwe.

This follows a last-minute decision by Zimbabwean authorities to halt a three-day sale of about 300,000 carats of rough diamonds.

Global Witness says some mines remain in the hands of the military despite an agreement with international monitors.

Insiders have told the BBC that the sale was only halted after “blood diamond” trade monitors intervened.

“We’re obviously pleased that this auction has been cancelled but overall we’re still concerned about the situation in the diamond fields in Marange,” Global Witness’ Anne Dunnebacke told the BBC Network Africa programme.

Senior Zimbabwe’s mines ministry official Thankful Musukutwa on Thursday told a news conference in Harare that the auction had been stopped because it had not been approved by the Kimberley Process (KP), set up to regulate the trade in “blood diamonds” – those mined in conflict zones.

“No export will take place prior to certification by the KP monitor,” he told reporters.

Some 80% of sales from the planned three-day auction would have gone to the Zimbabwe government, according to reports.

read the full report via BBC News – Zimbabwe diamond mine abuses ‘continue’.

So last night i rushed my boyfriend up to the local hospital as he had been vomiting all day long and was in a whole load of pain in the stomach area due to the vomiting, cramping and such and has a history of a swollen pancreas.

We arrived there around 7ish by 7.30 he had bloods taken and had started vomiting again within the emergency dept (not wait room), they took him out of an observation room and placed him in a room full of Recliner chairs.  whilst in the room he was continuing to vomit and doubled over in pain, a nurse came to put the drip in his arm with some anti-vomiting agent, whilst she was there she said to him when he was cramping and trying to vomit, “oh don’t try and force yourself to vomit” between wretches he told her it was his body automatically doing it and he had no control to stop it, so she grabbed his shoulder and shoved him back into the chair, he said to her “hey i cant sit back my stomach is cramping it hurts” she continued to shove until he sat back so she could put the drip in, she couldnt just wait until he stopped wretching?  not long later he went to do his urine sample and started vomiting again in the bathroom, this time vomiting blood and having extreme crampin in the stomach area. i went over to the nurses station and tried to ask a question of the nurse and found 2 nurses standing around talking about mobile fone providers, i stood there waiting for a few mins and neither of them made any attempt to ask me if i needed help, i then saw a nurse walking around and asked her if they could get someone to help him and get him a bed as he was vomiting up blood and in severe pain, in reply she said “he has been seen by the nurse, we have done all we can he will have to wait his turn” so i replied “meanwhile, he rips the lining of his stomach whilst vomiting as there is nothing to vomit up.” at around 8pm i again asked them if they could find a bed for him as he was still in extreme pain and needed to lay down,  i had never seen him in such agony, he was crying in pain and on and off the chair and onto the floor as he needed to lay flat due to the cramping in the stomach and sitting up was putting strain on his stomach area.

By 9.20 he was still on and off the floor as he needed to lay down and i had seen enough of my boyfriend having to lay on a dirty hospital floor to gain some relief of his pain and discomfort, so i started to record him laying on the floor in the room and walked out of the room he was in to record the empty beds in the emergency bed area.  at first i had seen 6 empty beds, by the time i went with the video camera i could see and access 3 but had nurses watching me and couldnt get access to film the other empty beds, i was then followed by a nurse and told id have to wait in the waiting room, i said no im staying with my partner as he is sick and she again said no you will have to leave. i again repeated “im not leaving without my partner, he is sick and laying on the floor” she then states she will call security and have me removed from the hospital because i was filming people/ “i replied im not filming anybody….and then had to  stop recording:  My sentence ended “im not filming anybody im filming my partner and the empty beds to prove your treating him like an animal after our requests for a bed.

I stood and complained as to why i was being asked to leave and she said cuz i was filming in the hospital and this was not allowed. i stated there were no signs and i had no knowledge of this and that was not good enough, the security by this time had arrived and asked the nurse what she wanted, she told them i had to leave the hospital. so they evicted me from the hospital, in protest i tossed a foam cup of ice in the air and stormed out (security closely following me) letting ppl in emergency waiting area know they had a man on the floor in pain and refused to get him a bed when they had empties.

outside i was laughed at by staff and security and being so distressed i yelled at them for laughing, i had the security guards then cross the car drive area and threaten to have me arrested if i did not leave and i refused and said id call the police myself after he got up in my face whilst i was on the phone to my mother who was looking after both keith’s and my children (we have 2 together and 1 each from previous relationship)

i immediately called channel 10 and spoke with reporter Harry. i have sent them the video footage.

I then called the police and waited until after 11pm for them to arrive(outside in the car park), even the cop agreed with me and shared her personal experience of mistreatment of her father at blacktown hospital.  When she went in to deliver him his fone she said he was still in the same chair and no bed had been given to him.

After speaking with the police i headed home and emailed the footage to channel 10.

at 1.20am i called the hospital and found out he was still in the same chair and awaiting results of bloods they took at 8am.  He told me at 2am he was finally given a bed to lay down in and some pain medication and an injection that put him to sleep for a few hours. Upon awaking at 6am he was told he was being discharged. He got home at 8.50am this morning, still pale and pasty and not well, no energy, can barely walk etc with a letter saying he presented with Severe Pain, Vomiting etc.  They also noted that he denied any alcohol or drug abuse…are they insinuating that he is an addict or junkie? I had overheard all night nurses making statements about him and walking past him laying on the floor , they giggled and said things to the effect ” oh dont worry ive seen him here before like this…..” i couldnt clearly make out all of the rest of sentence but it wasnt nice .  From my opinion they labelled him a junkie as he has 2 broken and severely rotted teeth in the front of his mouth, yet if they check his medical records, he acutally presented at blacktown hospital with 2 broken teeth and a broken nose in the 90’s due to being hit in a bar fight!

Im so disgusted in the treatment of my partner and would appreciate any comments of your treatments at any hospitals within australia as im defianately taking this further.

At his request i have made the video a private only viewable file. I am keeping hold of this for further action. Thank you.

UPDATE:  He was discharged on Wednesday Morning with a letter stating he was in SEVERE Pain and vomiting. Denies any take away foods, alcohol or drug abuse. a copy of blood tests was enclosed and blood tests were all normal.  No Scanns or Ultrasounds were given to him at this time at blacktown hospital.  His first set of blood tests taken had been lost and they had to retake bloods, i am unsure of the time this was done as i was already evicted from the hospital and hnim was so overcome in pain and exhaustion had no idea as to what time after i left things happened, only that they advised him someone called at around 1.30am and 2pm he was given a bed to lay in and sometime (unsure of time) afterwards a shot in the bum to sleep with some pain killers. When he awoke around 6am they said they were discharging him as they could not find anything wrong….well no wonder when they dont do anything except a blood test, not everything comes up in a blood test!

UPDATE: he has heard nothing back from the head of hospital as at 30/11/09

Ive recently started sponsoring a Child Headed Household in Uganda.

Betty is 16 and has a 3 month old baby of her own. Both parents are deceased and she is the caregiver for her 3 brother siblings (17) (12) & (11). To help me financially be able to support these children i have/am creating a range of items such as shirts, bags, hats, postcards and stickers to help me fund this. 100% of the profits are sent to support the children through a registered non profit “Joy For Children Uganda”. The funds are used to pay for food, kerosine (they live in a no electricity area), school fee’s, medical care and clothing.

Emailing Invisible Children in Jan of 2009 i was advised that I.C were doing an Aussie Tour this year to hold a big worldwide event called “The Rescue”. Eagerly i awaited more information and in March i was able to get in contact with Katie Bradel and was asked to help out on the media relations team for the IC Sydney Event. After getting connected and catching up with Katie Bradel, she asked me to come work with her and a group of people on a Media Relations team to help organise some media for The Rescue. Eagerly i took on this role and headed into Newtown to meet Katie and the other volunteers who, like myself believe in the mission and movement IC has created. We were pumped, by the end of the meeting i had met some fantastic ladies and we had put together some fantastic ideas. I was ready to do this! Wow IC were finally down under and i was ready to use my voice to help the invisible children of Uganda. I had never felt such pleasure such joy and such heartache at the same time. Being asked to do Radio Media i took on this mission with pride. I wanted to succeed, not for me, for the children of Uganda and of the LRA War. I was again so overwhelmed by the wonderful people i met, such selfless people to give their time and money to those who we have never met, those who are in a complete different country, i was in awe.

So i started emailing and faxing all the media i had been given in the lead up to the event…..10,000 emails later and around 400 faxes later i was pumped. I also started researching Uganda, and came across some interesting facts that made me feel a whole range of emotions from anger to guilt, from empathy to sympathy, from love to hate i was so overwhelmed that one passionate documentary had moved so much inside me. Ive watched documentaries, ive read ugandan newspapers, ive read books, listened to speeches but yet sadly i have never been able to set foot in Uganda. Throughout the month before “The Rescue” i was abuzz with emotions, talking to everyone and anyone i knew about IC. Showing the documentaries, showing the bracelets, sending media clips to PM’s. This war had to have an end, and if they (the governments) would not do it, we would show them they have to do it, we will show them that we care about this situation and we want to see and end to the suffering. How quick a month can go by because suddenly it was the eve of the event…which also happened to be my 29th birthday….whoops i totally forgot it was my birthday, no birthday dinner with family, no cake, i had been so caught up in the Rescue, id totally forgotten myself….oh well..i know what i wanted, all my presents had to be purchased on the invisible children website! I went to bed that night and had never felt so refreshed when i awoke…today was the day we were going to help make history!

9am – 25th April, 2009 i headed out by train to Sydney from Blacktown. With everyone meeting at Milsons Point station – i headed straight for “Fleet Steps” as i was sick and almost hospitalised the week leading up to the event i was told “no walking that far and no outside in the cold” by my doctor…are you kidding??? like i’m missing this for my health!!! Compromise is a bitch…yet it had to be done….no marching….no camping….but i was going to the Event!

Arriving at the fleet steps a few volunteers had already arrived and were starting to set up.

Helping set up with people such as noelle and christina, colin and Katie Bradel and everyone else was like a dream come true….they aint “celebs” as such but in my life they are “hero’s”. The best kind of hero’s ive ever seen. So finally we set up and had some fantastic times trying to get banners to hang from garbage bins etc, and the “abducted” were arriving…..it was beginning. We were all feeling Pumped!
The night overall…was the best night id ever had. I went to the Rescue on my own yet i wasn’t alone. With approx 1000 other IC supporters i felt myself becoming “a hero” as well. To watch the youth of sydney so proudly sing “your the voice” with Damien from underbelly was truly amazing…the dancing, chanting and singing was undeniably great and made the event so much more than just a group of people sharing the same ideals and beliefs….it made us whole. We were Rescued By Damien Walshe-Howling and by Sky News Australia and ABC Radio as well as a few independant journalist who took up the media call. Being Anzac Day in Australia it was very hard to compete to get air time for our event, but ultimately we were rescued and received national air time to raise awareness for the cause so that was a great bonus! The atomosphere was amazing, i just cannot express how in awe i was with everyone.
At around 10.30pm we started heading off to Hyde Park Barracks where we were to be camped out for the night. This is where my night had to end. I arrived, walking up with a group and hung around for a little while, purchasing my bag and rescue bracelets, chatting with new friends and IC enthusiasts and just enjoying the lovely mood that was set at the Sydney Rescue! Time to go home…..11.30pm.

So off i went to St James Station to catch the train back to blacktown….home to sleep

Sunday 26th April: Sunrise gave a brief overview about the chanting coming from outside! Sydneysiders from the Rescue had marched to Sunrise Studio’s and parked themselves out the front of the Live Recording room window – Bring Joseph Kony to Justice was all you could see in the window….GOOD ON YA GUYS!!!! Sky News Australia gave a 7 min interview with Christina and Colin from IC

For the next 3 days i was online watching the live feeds and i had the best time watching….the mission in the US was still going and they needed support….to see Oprah’s live show and the Bobby and IC there was exceptional – Thanks Oprah and Thanks to the dedicated “abducted” who camped out the front of Harpo to get the attention the movement deserves.
Today exactly one month after the event…its not over. The movement is still going hard so so must i…..on June 9th i’ll be giving a speech to the local lions club about IC and what it has done for the people of Northern Uganda in hopes that they can in turn spread the message to other local lions clubs as well.

Invisible children in my life isn’t just a movement, its a way of life for me and my family. We are honored to help, we are honored to say “i support invisible children” and we will be even more honored on the day we can finally say “we helped to end the LRA War in Uganda”


NEXT: Part III

So a few weeks back i was talking to my aunt who had been a long time volunteer in a local organisation and she suggested that i should keep a journal of my experiences. Of how i felt by doing what i am doing, my emotions and above all the strength and drive that keeps me going.  So i decided to start and here is the first part.

June 2007 i started working at a new job. Within a few weeks of my starting there, my boss gave me a DVD called Invisible Children Rough Cut.  Not sure what i was watching, that night i eagerly popped the DVD on and what started as a light and airy documentary had me in tears and anguish by the end.  Rough Cut is one of the most powerful documentaries i have had the pleasure of watching. I like to call these Shockumentaries, as they really shock your body, mind and soul. One boy in particular was what drew me in, Jacob, The ex child soldier, you see i have a jacob, he is only 3 yrs old and if my jacob was stolen, how would i feel. Oh i cried, my heart ached for this Jacob, as a mother i wanted to scoop this child into my arms and give him the biggest hug i could ever give. it really broke my heart. there is no way i could picture this child as a soldier, the innocence and beauty in his face. how could this keep on happening?  I was 27, i had not heard of this LRA war that started in 1986 when i was just a meagre 6 yr old child. Why? Why did i not know? Why was our media not reporting on this? Why were millions of people in displacement camps and thousands of children being abducted and no one was reporting this on the news? WHY? all i could keep on saying is WHY?

During this time, i started to suffer with my own nightmare, a multi nodular goitre that had taken over my thyroid and was slowly choking me to death. During 07 and 08 i went through one of the most darkest periods of my life. To know your dying, you can feel it, you can feel you cant breathe, this goitre was literally choking me, to get the perspective, i could not swallow a whole panadol tablet as it was too big to go down my osophegous, that is how small and restricted it was. My voice was suffering as well, being crushed by the goitre, i was advised by my specialist that i would never sing high notes again and it could take a while for the voice box to repair, some days it was so difficult to talk as my voice was so harsh and scratchy i really felt like i would never get my voice back. Thankfully in November of 2008 i had surgery to remove my thyroid and the nasty goitre and since then have been classified a “hypothyroidism”. On medication for life and a few issues afterwards, but i was blessed to be alive, i could breathe again! It was then i knew that i had to dedicate my voice to those who were not heard, singing is out of the question after suffering something like that, but being an activist isnt, having passion and speaking with passion about something isnt. I spent the next 2 months recovering and enjoyed the Christmas with my family. How sad i felt when on Christmas day 2008 the LRA attacked at town in DR Congo and massacred approx 620 villagers and kidnapped approx 130+ children.  How? on Christmas day? i was left in tears, broken and lost at how one man could initiate the massacre on Christmas Day, a day we celebrate God and Family, this man took that away, this Joseph Kony. It was not over, but i wanted so badly to be a part of whatever it took to make it over. This was one mission i would not give up on, i look at my children and it pains me that another mother somewhere cannot look at her children, it pains me that another lily or jacob (my other son is reece which i highly doubt is a big name in africa) somewhere in the world do not have the luxuries that my children have, the luxury of good food and clothing, an education and above all a childhood. To support IC i have purchased their DVD’s, Bracelets, Tshirts, Scarves and more. I have donated my time and money to this cause as i believe in what they do, i have seen through their documentaries the difference they have made in the lives of those in Northern Uganda.

Emailing Invisible Children in Jan of 2009 i was advised that I.C were doing an Aussie Tour this year to hold a big worldwide event called “The Rescue”. Eagerly i awaited more information and in March i was able to get in contact with Katie Bradel and was asked to help out on the media relations team for the IC Sydney Event.  After getting connected and catching up with Katie Bradel, she asked me to come work with her and a group of people on a Media Relations team to help organise some media for The Rescue.  Eagerly i took on this role and headed into Newtown to meet Katie and the other volunteers who, like myself believe in the mission and movement IC has created.  We were pumped, by the end of the meeting i had met some fantastic ladies and we had put together some fantastic ideas.  I was ready to do this!

I saw the website say that as at 2009 there are over 1 billion people in the world hungry, and thought to myself, we really are in a world where ignorance overrules right. The World Food Program have issued this News Release.

This year, mainly due to the shocks of the economic crisis combined with often high national food prices, the number of hungry people is expected to grow overall by about 11 percent, FAO projects, drawing on analysis by the US Department of Agriculture.

Almost all of the world’s undernourished live in developing countries. In Asia and the Pacific, an estimated 642 million people are suffering from chronic hunger; in Sub-Saharan Africa 265 million; in Latin America and the Caribbean 53 million; in the Near East and North Africa 42 million; and in the developed countries 15 million in total. Why is the media not reporting on this? How in 2009 can our world be in a worse position than the 1980’s? With the advancement in technology you would tend to think that life would change for at least the better. Well assuming gets us no-where.  I find it so hard to comprehend the amount of violence and poverty gripping our earth at this point its to me beyond comprehension.  Slavery in the world is bigger now than ever before, a 32 billion dollar industry going on right under most of our noses! Asia Pacific, USA, Canada, India, Middle East and even my own home of Australia have been caught up in the slavery trade.

For years i had no idea that these things were going on in the world, i was a materialistic person that cared for myself and family and local community but never really paid attention to what was going on in the world. At that point Invisible Children and a tumor came into my life and changed me ever so much. I watched, i learned and i listened, and when i did all that i thought to myself, the age old question. Well what can i do about it, im just one person, im not rich, i cant just fly off to africa or asia and do something about it, but i just cant sit here knowing what i know and NOT do anything about it. So i started ringing people i knew and talking to them, showing friends and family the invisible children dvd’s and started on a mission that has bought me joy, sadness, love, appreciation, new friends, wonderful memories, tears and so much more than i just cannot put into words. On my journey through raising awareness for invisible children and the children of uganda, its made my interests in the world flourish, i never ever thought i would be an activisit, but i am one and PROUD to be. I know what i want to see change in this world and im on a mission to help be that change.

I cannot stress enough how important it is we all help, as a global society these days thanks mainly to the internet, we have an obligation to be the voice of those who are not heard. So many people in this world are suffering right now and they need our help. Im on a general award wage have 3 kids to support, rent, bills and all that, yet i still manage to sponsor 2 children thats an extra $100 a month expense and donate at least $40 per month to different organisations. I make sacrifices in order to do these things and even thou i physically get nothing out of it, spiritually, mentally and emotionally i get more back than you could imagine.

I currently have a petition started going to President Obama, US State Senates and Congress, AU Prime Minister Rudd and Minister Smith (AU Foreign Affairs Minister) asking them to support the “LRA Disarment and Northern Uganda Recovery Act 2009”  If passed through US Sentate this would be a historical win for the people of Northern Uganda who have been displaced for over a decade now in IDP camps.  2009 saw the start of the IDP’s returning home due to the LRA moving out of Northern Uganda and into DR Congo. The congolese civilians are now facing what the Northern Ugandans have faced for the last 2 decades.  It is time we say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH and end the violence and bring Joseph Kony to justice. Please sign our petition, be the voice of the invisible children and show you care.  top left hand side “TAKE ACTION” button. Click to sign our petition.

Thanks for reading todays rant! im not quite finished so will update again shortly.

So i have so many people ask me how i do so much that i do, with working and kids, im pretty lucky to be able to absorb information at a good rate and to use my “technological Skills” to raise awareness from yep you guessed it my chair.

I find alot of people dont donate to organisations because there are just sooo many out there that they dont know where to start so i’ve thought id help yous all out and give you some information on great websites where you can support non profits and get to meet some fantastic people who support similar causes and who can open your eyes to other issues our world is currently facing.

CHECK OUT Colgate Kisses Here

Care2 – www.care2.org through this website you can support a whole range of causes and organisations. very similar to change yet a little more indepth, more for those with a little extra time on their hands.

Kiva – www.kiva.org – A great way to support an individual in need.
