The Boycott Divestment and Sanctions of Israel it is happening all over the world. Operation “Boycott” was launched in France before French’s courts declared it illegal on October 20, action that is being challenged as a serious attack on freedom of expression.
If you want to know more about the stores that carry Illegal Israel’s products and want to support for Palestinian society in its BDS campaign, add the following store to your boycott’s list.
Rue de Roquebillière · +33 4 92 17 74 79
A Carrefour TNL, pro-Palestinian activists have led a boycott operation of Israeli’s products yesterday. The products were removed from shelves and piled into shopping carts installed in the corridors of the supermarket.
About thirty activists who support the campaign “Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions” (BDS), launched in 2005 by the Palestinian civil society, have emptied the shelves of Carrefour TNL last Saturday morning.
In their sights: was a brand name machine that adds oxygen and flavor to the water, this product is made in East Jerusalem in an illegal settlement.
Activists have emptied the shelves and they crammed the products in carts in the aisles of the supermarket. Without causing crowding.
“We are for peace,” the activists said.
“We are here to denounce Israel colonialist’s policy and this action is to ask the supermarket not to offer for sale products from the illegal Israeli settlements in Palestine,” said Michel Abada, BDS member. “We are for peace.” We want this conflict to end and It is not intended to boycott Israeli society or its members,” adds Ismaël Bendjeffal, BDS member.
The punch action operation lasted about twenty minutes before management intervened without confronting the activists. The operation “Boycott” was launched all over France, but declared illegal since 20 October this year. The Supreme Court sentenced 14 BDS activists. “A serious attack on freedom of expression is to be challenged in France’s courts,” according to BDS campaigners.

Is China the Next Superpower-The Sleeping Dragon
We will celebrate Labor Day in China
Slavery in The Corporate World-In the Name of Profits
When corporate America thought that saving few dollars on salaries will make them stronger in the world market, they miscalculated the downfall of their power. Power vested on them when they controlled the world with Mr Dollar.
It is not the same to play with toys make in china for 3 cents a piece and to play with toys made in the US for 3 dollars. The 3 cents toys will brake because the quality is not included in the price, the salary might be included because slave hands are used to make those toys. ‘All in the name of profits’.
The mentality that everything could be made in China grew to a devastating proportions for United States, We the United States of North America sent our manufacturers to China, even some of the Military gadgets were to be made in China, critical technology for the Defense Department was even ‘Made In China’
Where were the strategists of the government in the last 20 years, China was in an accelerated race buying our government bonds owing with this a piece of our economy and weakling up our World Power. Wait! Did we knew that we will be using slave labor? Didn’t we abolished slavery almost 100 years ago, that’s what our History says, don’t we commemorate Abraham Lincoln with big fanfare? We are hypocrites, some even go to Church every Sunday, they repent of their sins weekly but in the in the week they shop in “Wall Mart” the worse slave trader and Domestic Economy Killer. Maybe there is something you should know
“Even if China’s population multiplies many times, she is fully capable of finding a solution; the solution is production,” Mao Zedong proclaimed in 1949. “Of all things in the world, people are the most precious.” The communist government condemned birth control and banned imports of contraceptives.
China One Child’s Policy
Well that statement was slogan after a few years, when the One Child Policy become effective after on and off periods, read the article in its entirely, there is information that you won’t find, but if you read between the lines you can understand the negative consequences of that policy, you will not read about the millions and millions or “Illegal Chinese Man and Woman” that born out of state permit, their parents did not have money to pay the exorbitant fines that they were required to pay for having braking the “Law”, but we ask ourselves in United States of North America we have strong groups that are against abortion, don’t we? but in China abortions are mandatory when you are found pregnant and you have already your “ONE Child”. This story is not about abortion, or Chinese laws but about Profits made with slave Chinese Labor, Yeah! if you as a parent broke the law and you did not pay the fine to the government for having more than one child, which is most common case because usually the couples that get pregnant out of the policy are the poorest in the Chinese Society, these babies are born without birth certificate, and without birth certificate you simply do not exist, that makes you Illegal Chinese in China, you can not go to school because you do not exist, and when you reach working age which is by the way very early age for these Illegal Chinese they become part of the slave trade in China that abuse their status, and we the Corporations of the world not only the Corporate America some other First and Second World Countries are taking “advantage” of these slaves. All in the name of profits. These Illegal Chinese of China are under paid if they get any pay at all, they are used for the most dangerous jobs and they can not complain after all they do not exist.
There are horrible stories about These slaves that tired to being Illegal in their countries they venture to the outside world only to fall in a more grotesque form of slavery, Sweat Shops They leave China in containers filled with fish or whatever material is good to cover the contraband, those stories you don’t see in the news, you has to go out of your way to find the story. The sharks, the human traffickers don’t touch their heart when they empty the containers with the inert bodies of these humans that want a better life. They leave the Mother Land with the promise to get them jobs in America, the traffickers charged them tens of thousands of dollars that are like a dead debt, they are kept in inhumane conditions, mostly without pay until they pay back the “FEE”. Sure there are laws against these practices but they are overlooked, All in the name of Profits.
Our Capitalist Societies are ready to receive the carcasses of the survivals, there will always be an employer that will “Risk” to pay the fines for accepting slave labor, at the end profits is always bigger than the fines.
The disproportionate rationale that living in a Capitalist Society driven by consumerism has to produce profits No Matter what, to keep the status Quo of being strong society because we are Capitalist, because we abuse our labor, after all the base of Capitalism rest on the sweet of the worker, right? So making more profits is an extension and maybe a solidification of our Capital System, well has proven to be wrong. We wanted to make 3 cents toys instead of 3 dollars toys. Why the economist, the analysts of our system did not oversaw that while we will be saving in manufacturing cost we will be killing our system of consumption.
We end up feeding two monsters; the Slave Trade and Creating a huge unemployment rate that will eventually will lead us to a social unrest like the one we just saw developed in the middle east just in the last few months. Maybe we won’t see the crowds marching with sticks and flags demanding jobs, no in North America we have other ways to demand justice, in here we Riot, we Strike, we Boycott and the most importantly in North America “We Consume” we could paralyze our Cities if we use “OUR BUYING POWER”, ‘WE STOP DRIVING ONE DAY”, “WE DON’T BUY GAS ONE DAY” and we will Shape North America back in Check…
The Corporations opened the gates of the factories and disbanded millions of workers as if they were a herd of animals to go graze in the grass without worrying that they needed to make money to buy the 3 cents toys. Eating grass (welfare system) was not going to give them extra pennies to buy Chinese toys. Isn’t it common sense, that to maintain a capitalist society you need to support the base of it, which is the worker class, I mean! common Harvard graduates, Bankers didn’t you oversaw your wrong doings. You took the bread from the table and took the baking oven, what were you expecting to starve to death the workers! and …..replace them with slaves? I don’t think that you were thinking that you will be crating a sub-society of sub-humans that were going to be fighting to survive, and I did not think that you wanted to take the Economy Power from the US and give it to CHINA? Was that part of the plant? Don’t you know Globalist Bankers, Thieves and Associates that we live in an organism “society” that evolve, we move with the times, with the changes, we are not robots that you take the battery and we stay to rust,
No! No! we ALL are humans and if “YOU” even thought that creating this “CHAOS” of world you still will have the control using the War Complex Machine as a backing tool, making the “PEOPLE” believe that we don’t matter, that we are SLAVES only to follow the whip of your control. Can the tanks force us to Drive?, Can the United States Army can come to our homes to force us to go buy Gas or unnecessary food?
United States of North America Vs China. Can their armies be competing for world control?
China’s demonstration of military might and authoritarian muscle on October 1st, its national day, was one recent example of how its judgment can go awry. The parade of thousands of goose-stepping troops through central Beijing, along with military hardware intended mainly to intimidate America and its quasi-ally Taiwan, was a throwback to the imagery of cold-war days. It did not help that dissidents were rounded up and the public kept away from the event
Such scenes touch raw nerves in America, where intellectual and political opinion has long been bitterly divided over how to assess China’s rise. Left-wing Democrats, alarmed by China’s human-rights abuses, find themselves in league with right-wing Republicans who see China as a new Soviet Union, to be distrusted and contained. The October 1st extravaganza also worried a third, more centrist, camp: those who see the Communist Party’s resort to nationalism as a sign of its weakness and of China’s vulnerability to upheaval that could have damaging global consequences. Sleeping Dragon/China
Can the War Complex Machine subsist without workers? Will the World Powers subsist without “Believers” think about it
A Nation without “We the People” Has No Power.
Can unemployment brake the economy of a nation?, You bet It can. But the Will of the People Can Straighten the worse case of Corruption, abuse, intolerance, negligence, ignorance, and Deaf Leaders. Be the Owner of your Destiny, Take Control Back to your hands, The Power to the People is coming back. Be a dissenter voice, and add your voice to the already growing grassroots movements. We Can Do It.
Peace To All
Wake Up America
