|| Canadian society: a vibrant, modern, symbiosis global society
Spiritual Leader of the Global Community
Prophete of God
Key words: Canadian multiculturalism, diversity, the Canadian experience, immigration, symbiosis global society, symbiotical relationship, global ministries
Canadian society today includes a vast diversity of cultural heritages and racial groups. This multicultural diversity is a result of centuries of immigration.
Truly, the struggle for the making of Canadian multiculturalism is the Canadian experience and the Canadian identity.
Canadian multiculturalism is a symbiotical relationship between Canada, the Canadian people, and the world.

|| Labor Goes to Bali: Unions Ready to Take on Global Warming
by Brendan Smith and Jeremy Brecher and Tim Costello, Global Labor Strategies
AlterNet, The Mix is the Message, ForeignPolicy
The devastating realities of climate change, and the scientific consensus around its cause and cure, are shifting the global political climate.
Some people might say you are anti-business. Is that the case?
This week trade unionists from around the world will travel to Bali for the December 3rd launch of negotiations for a successor to the Kyoto Protocol limiting greenhouse
gasses. It will include delegates from such U.S unions as the Electrical Workers (IUE), Mine Workers, Service Employees, Boilermakers, Steelworkers, Communication Workers,
Transport Workers (TWU), and UNITE HERE garment and textile workers. It will also include the AFL-CIO Industrial Union Council as well as such labor-oriented groups as the
Blue-Green Alliance, the Cornell Global Labor Institute, and the Labor Research Association. The Kyoto Protocol was signed by 172 countries - not including the U.S. The AFL-CIO, which then represented the great majority of all U.S. unions, opposed the
Kyoto protocol. What will be the stance of American labor toward an even stronger version for the future?
As trade unionists, we are confident that Bali will mark the beginning of a new and more ambitious process of social change, where our collective hearts and minds must
aspire to save our planet, on the basis of solidarity and mutual respect.

|| Why Israel Has No "Right To Exist" As A Jewish State
by Oren Ben-Dor , Countercurrents.org, firstname.lastname@example.org
A recognition of Israel's right to exist as a Jewish
state is a recognition of the Jews special entitlement, as eternal victims,
to have a Jewish state. Such a test of supreme stake for Jews is the
supreme criterion not only for racist policy making by the legislature but
also for a racist constitutional interpretation by the Supreme Court.The
idea of a state that is first and foremost for the sake of Jews trumps
even that basic law of Human Freedom and Dignity to which the Israeli
Supreme Court pays so much lip service. Such constitutional
interpretation would have to make the egalitarian principle equality of
citizenship compatible with, and thus subservient to, the need to
maintain the Jewish majority and character of the state. This of course
constitutes a serious compromise of equality, translated into many
individual manifestations of oppression and domination of those victims
of such compromise--non-Jews-Arabs citizens of Israel.
The demand is that
Palestinians recognise Israel's entitlement to constitutionally entrench a
system of racist basic laws and policies, differential immigration criteria
for Jews and non-Jews, differential ownership and settlements rights,
differential capital investments, differential investment in education,
formal rules and informal conventions that differentiate the potential
stakes of political participation, lame-duck academic freedom and
The Jewish state could only come into being in May 1948 by ethnically
cleansing most of the indigenous population -- 750000 of them.
The fate of the descendants of those 750000 Palestinians
who were ethnically cleansed in 1948 would
continue to be discriminated under a two-state solutions.
The judaisation of the state could only be effectively implemented by
constantly internally displacing the population of many villages within the
Israel state. The Right of Return of Palestinians means that Israel acknowledges and
apologises for what it did in 1948. It does mean that Palestinian
memory of the 1948 catastrophe, the Nakbah, is publicly revived in the
Geography and collective memory of the polity. It does mean that
Palestinians descendants would be allowed to come back to their
villages. If this is not possible because there is a Jewish settlement there,
they should be given the choice to found an alternative settlement
nearby. This may mean some painful compulsory state purchase of
agricultural lands that should be handed back to those who return. In
cases when this is impossible they ought to be allowed the choice to
settle in another place in the larger area or if not possible in another area
in Palestine. It is clear that part of the realisation
of that right of return would not only be a just the actual return, but also
the assurance of equal stake and citizenship of all, Jews and
non-Jews-Arabs after the return. A return would make the egalitarian
claim by those who return even more difficult to conceal than currently
with regard to Israel Arab second class citizens. What unites Israelis
and many world Jews behind the call for the recognition of the right of a
Jewish state to exist is their aversion for the possibility of living, as a
minority, under conditions of equality of stake to all. But if Jews enjoys
this equality in Canada why can not they support such equality in
Palestine through giving full effect to the right of Return of Palestinians?

|| US Alliance Afghan Genocide - Six Million Excess Deaths?
by Dr Gideon Polya, Countercurrents.org,
Post-invasion non-violent excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan - a month on from the 6th anniversary of the war criminal US invasion and occupation on 7th October 2001 – now total an estimated 3.2 million. However comparisons with Occupied Iraq (1.5-2 million TOTAL post-invasion excess deaths, and 0.8-1.2 million or about 50% of these being VIOLENT deaths) suggest that the post-invasion violent excess deaths in Occupied Afghanistan could total 3 million.
The racist, war criminal US military state that they “don’t do body counts” of Indigenous victims but publicly-accessible UN demographic data allow us to estimate the carnage as outlined below.
With Racist Zionist-beholden Bush America and Racist Zionist-run Apartheid Israel threatening to devastate remote, peaceful, non-invading, non-occupying, non-threatening, non-nuclear armed, democratic Iran (population 70 million, half of them KIDS and three quarters Women and Children), perhaps the best advice about how the World can stop these proto-Nazi, racist war-mongers is that given by outstanding CONSERVATIVE American economist, writer, academic and “Father of Reaganomics” Dr Paul Craig Roberts (see: http://www.counterpunch.org/roberts02122007.html ), QUOTE :
“Dump the Dollar! How the World can stop Bush … If the rest of the world would simply stop purchasing US Treasuries, and instead dump their surplus dollars into the foreign
exchange market, the Bush Regime would be overwhelmed with economic crisis and unable to wage war ...The demise of the US dollar is only a question of time.
It would save the world from war and devastation if the dollar is brought to its demise before the Bush Regime launches its planned attack on Iran.”

When the system doesn't allow people to protect themselves from corporate harm to their communities, it is time to change the system.
Can you tell us about "democracy"? It's a word used by everyone and can mean so many things.
Some people might say you are anti-business. Is that the case?
Many people in this country don't understand that corporations have personhood rights. Why does this come as such a surprise to some people?
Speak about the regulatory system. It's supposed to keep corporations from doing harm, but everywhere you look -- the water, the land, the air -- everything is polluted.
Some believe that laws such as anti-corporate personhood ordinances are a waste of time because they will be challenged and shot down, so why bother? What is
the logic behind civil disobedience to the law?
Do you believe it's possible to change the role of corporations in our society?

Here are 11 solutions already being put into practice by innovative communities around the world.
You probably don't need to be told that the threat of climate change is real. If you're concerned about the issue, it's fairly easy to conjure the apocalyptic scenes of widespread drought, frequent deadly storms, mass hunger, and wars over natural resources like oil and water. Much harder to come by are examples of positive actions that can avert these disasters and ease the crisis in places where they are already in play. So let's skip the litany of catastrophes that await if global warming is not controlled. Instead, why not focus on some solutions? None are perfect or complete, but each offers a model of positive change that is more than theoretically possible -- it is already happening.
Many of these examples are small-scale and local. That's instructive because our best hope for sustainability -- in agriculture, industry, energy, community design, and government -- may lie in local, small-scale models like some of those presented here. It may seem as though large-scale problems require large-scale solutions. But most big institutions and processes are driven by the very people and ideas that have generated our global crisis. It's in the local and the small that the majority of people can exercise agency and decision-making power.

|| Déclaration des poètes du monde pour la paix
by Guy CREQUIE
The beginning of the third millenium places the whole of inhabitants of our planet vis-a-vis stakes and challenges of a gravity rarely known before.
The poets brought together with the 1st International Festival of Poets in Paris, believe that the poetic word is committed compared to these challenges and declare:
The poetic word is love and meeting, it supports the dialog between men and different cultures, it is the leaven of dialog and peace in a world devastated by wars and terrorism.
The poetic word is fraternal, It revolts against all the demonstrations of xenophobia and racism which return to the load under all the latitudes
The poetic word is freedom and tolerance, it says yes to the human rights for all the citizens of the planet, it says no to all forms of tyranny, oppression and torture.
The poetic word is interdependent, it is opposed to the social injustices and the various forms of exclusion, it affirms that the rights to feed, to educate themselves, to look after themselves and to shelter themselves belong to the human rights
The poetic word is fed on diversity, there are no cultures, nor minority languages, it is in the diversity that richness of humanity resides. Any culture, any language in danger, means danger to all humanity.
The poetic word is history and beauty, culture and nature, it is committed, even before the birth of the writing, in the construction and the defence of the historical inheritance of various civilizations.
The poetic word is rain and seed, it is for life, it rises against the environmental pollution, biodiversity, and threats that weigh on the various ecosystems which constitute a common good of humanity

|| Economic Sharing: A Shift In Global Values
by Rajesh Makwana, Countercurrents.org Rajesh Makwana is the Director of Share The World's Resources (STWR), an NGO campaigning for global economic and social justice.
He can be contacted at email@example.com
A growing body of progressives within the global justice movement, including environmentalists, economists and policy makers, broadly agree that a significant overhaul of the world’s economic and political systems is long overdue, and that without significant restructuring our most pressing problems will never be tackled.
It is time for a significant re-evaluation of global economic and political values and the creation of an economy that serves the needs of the global community as a whole, within our environmental limitations.
In order to consider how the ownership and management of key resources could be organized, it is useful to group them according to type. There are three general categories:
-Naturally occurring resources – e.g. land, water, oil, gas and mineral ores
-Produced goods – e.g. agricultural produce, medicines, building materials and machinery
-Services – e.g. utilities, healthcare and education

|| Full Text Of Ahmadinejad's Remarks At Columbia University
by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad addressed students and
professors at the US Columbia University during his short sojourn
in New York before his address at the 62nd meeting of the UN
His remarks at Columbia University were almost entirely
boycotted by western and specially US media; while he spoke of
such crucial issues as Iran's nuclear program and the Holocaust
which have always been at the center of western media's attention,
almost the only point the US press mentioned about Ahmadinejad's
address at Columbia university pertained to a few seconds of his
answer to a question about the rights of homosexuals in Iran.
