The Battle to Save the Small Farms of Poland

I am writing this in the Polish Parliament in Warsaw (The Seime). Jadwiga Lopata, founder of The International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside, myself (ICPPC President) and farmer colleagues from different regions of Poland, are in the parliament as part of a campaign we have been fighting for the past three years, to get the food laws changed. We are supported in this by a number of active consumers and, perhaps surprisingly, by the chairman of the Agricultural Committee, who belongs to the Kukiz 15 social movement which achieved 12% of the vote in the last election.

The current law in Poland discriminates heavily against the small and medium sized traditional family farmers by prohibiting the on-farm processing of their traditional high quality foods. Also banning the sale of such foods in shops and other local and regional outlets.

The only way farmers can be on the right side of the law, is if they register themselves as ‘a business’ and carry out their processing activities in a separate building designed to satisfy ‘hygiene and sanitary’ regulations of the European Union and national government. Regulations that have been designed by supermarkets and the food industry for supermarkets and the food industry. (more…)

Occupy Warsaw! Polish Farmers Create Clandestine City Camp

Something rather remarkable is happening in the middle of Poland’s capital, Warsaw, and it’s not exactly a capital city spectacle. In fact, rather the opposite.
Tucked-away under a line of trees, opposite the Prime Minister’s Palace in Central Warsaw, is a small ramshackle camp, comprising two tents, a Second World War wood fired mobile cooking apparatus, some chairs and benches, a pile of logs and a number of banners, posters and logos.
This is ‘Green City’ a symbolic and actual site of occupation by farmers fighting to save their livelihood and way of life. At the time of writing, it is in its 28th day of existence – and it isn’t planning on going anywhere, in spite of the fact that it is illegal and suffering under a daily fine imposed by the Polish government. A fine which is, in many ways, a small replication of what is happening on a much bigger scale to farming communities throughout the European Economic Community and beyond. (more…)

Sedation by Sound-Bite

Millions upon millions of educated – and even aware people, all over the world, are succumbing to a new virus ‘SBS’, or ‘Sound-Bite Syndrome’. Its symptoms are best described as an inability to concentrate on anything meaningful for anything other than a very short passage of time.
To concentrate the mind so as to read something that requires a certain depth of thought or fuller cognisance, is becoming an endangered skill.
Now that is a truly shocking fact. One that should register high on the shocking fact ratio. It should jolt us all into recalling the vital role that genuine communication plays in the passing of essential knowledge and inspiration – including lyrical poetry and vivid prose.
For these great tools of consciousness raising to be corrupted into a thousand broken pieces of easily assimilated sound-bites, must constitute one of the most masterful silent weapons of destruction of the Illuminati war chest. (more…)

The World Is Our Garden – Defend It or Lose It

When we walk into a carefully nurtured and diverse garden, we are struck by its beauty and its sense of completeness. We are enraptured by its scents and its mysteries. We are enlivened by its colours, both vivid and subtle, and we are nourished by the freshness that fills our lungs.

Altogether, the majority of sentient beings will surely concur, this garden is a most agreeable place to be – and should someone emerge who threatens to desecrate this sacred space – the reaction will be to jump to its defence and protect it against such a criminal action. (more…)

A Phoenix Rising

“There’s a battle outside and it’s ragin, it’ll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls, for the times they are a’ changin’”

The historical evidence points to the fact that, when faced by extreme adversity, many cultures of the world finally start proving their true worth. It simply seems to be the case that, for many, unless their backs are pressed hard against the wall, they can see no reason to involve themselves in any form of resistance.

Two things seem to be in transition on this front. Firstly, due to a rise in cosmic energy finding it’s way to our planet at this time, the opportunity for gaining higher awareness is greater than in the recent past. Secondly, the proliferation of global information and news (of very varied quality) is now everywhere at all times. Put these together and we have a receipt for change.

Now one might deduce that this means that the dark side’s energies are also enhanced – and that their powers of instant communication are equally increased. But this is where it gets interesting: the incoming higher frequency energies vibrate at a level which is only accessible to those whose own frequencies rise up to meet them. For those who simply maintain basic low levels of receptivity – the new vibratory spectrum will offer no tangible assistance. In fact the gap will increase between the two states of being.

A process of polarisation is being set in motion, making it more and more clear just ‘who is’ and ‘who is not’ on the road to an emancipation of consciousness.

For the dark side, these are perilous times. One can deduce that an increasingly intense search for third density sustenance will accompany this transitional process. The vampiric urge will be heightened. Expect further heinous crimes involving the blood-letting of those who are deemed ‘ripe’. Expect further outbursts of reactionary aggression. Of mindless irrational behaviour in both talk and physical actions. Expect outbursts of mind-blowing arrogance – as the need to puff-up in false pride becomes the most readily accessible form of delusional resistance to the advancing waves of truth.

However, simultaneous to the rising-up from the sea of this dark old monster, we ‘the receptive people’ increasingly embrace the vibratory chords rising-up in ourselves – and are therefore more fully empowered to stand face to face with this scaly old leviathan.

So are we opened-up to a consciousness that imparts greater boldness and courage in the face of adversity. That imparts bravery where once we shrank back in timidity. That forces us to dig deep into our divine selves and bring to the surface that gold which cannot be endured by opposing entities.

This gold is indeed precious, for it is the herald of a great reunion: the coming together of, let us call them – the Great Spirit and the Great Shaman: ‘cosmic receptivity’ – and – ‘earthly creative’. These two have been divided, conquered and wrenched apart by centuries of Illuminati dark scheming for absolute global dominance. During this time Cosmic Receptivity and the Earthly Creative have been forced into a deeply unhappy divorce – with billions on this planet going with them. Needless to say, the rejoining of these two inherently inseparable forces is greatly feared by the dark knights of the perverted soul.

Listen! We can now catch the first notes of a sweet musical refrain. A refrain that is, at this very moment rising up out of the mists of time – and heralding a truly momentous reunion – one to which we are all invited! Oh what a wedding – this reuniting of heaven and earth!

Preparations for the feast are already under way even as the bloody, toxic horror of war tries to hold centre stage to distract our straining minds. Even as the missiles are trained on their prey; as the war
cries grow in intensity. Even then – our unstoppable Phoenix is rising!

We are expanding our awareness of what is our role in this extraordinary transition – and it is – at least on one plain – paradoxical: for we are both creating the future and adjusting to a future that is in-creation. In realising the Godly within, we mould and sculpt a creative form for our daily lives. We go out to enhance the environment around us as a deepening expression of our burgeoning love of life. We sow our garden and reap it’s fruits. We take action and make our stand in defence of life.

On the other hand, we we remain constantly receptive to that which guides us in our actions; always listening for the subtle voice of cosmic inspiration, always awake to intuitive guidance. This is the dynamic of movement, change, human transformation that is taking place even as I write.

So now, as we gain new insights into our capacities to bring about a better world, the onus is upon us to use these capacities intelligently, creatively and passionately. This is the Phoenix rising – and by God do we need it! As the dark side press-on with their war games to grab the tantalizing prize of a long craved Middle Eastern bastion of power – so we increasingly discover that we are gaining the power to stop this deathly process – to stop all wars!

The energies rising in us are of Divine origin – so are we! Can anyone tell me what more is needed to take-down this obscene display of imperial power mongering? One that doesn’t care if it takes the entire world with it in its howling passion for destruction?

Many, many, sense a great turning. What is it?

I want to suggest an answer: it’s a ‘turning away’ from regarding such war spectacles as a ‘show’ to which we are simply passive spectators and commentators. That, we now realize, is no longer possible. It never was. We are involved. Whether we like it or not – there’s no escape.
So, upon accepting this truth, our next task is to bring all ‘worst case scenarios’ into our personal awareness so we can work out our individual and collective responses – testing each against the ‘fear’ factor. So, if we feel fear at the prospect of an apocalyptic showdown – we then need to find that element in ourselves which overcomes such fear – and bolster it. This is the real preparation for overcoming our reticence to act when act we must.

The act of ‘saying no to war’ whether by letter, demonstration, physical blockade or public awareness raising – constitutes a powerful means of overcoming the isolationist feeling that is the breeding ground for fear. Right now is definitely the time to make our feelings heard.

Then, as I have underlined already, there is this vast untapped resource in us all which can, overnight, change even the worst scenario into a march to absolute victory! This is how this universe was created – and we are it’s component parts. Therefore, collectively, we can bring about the demise of all these warmongering sycopaths at a stroke – for their power is nothing in comparison to ours – once we are motivated.

So let us urge ourselves on to reverse the barren future the war maniacs are planning for us.
Start today! There is no time to loose.

We came to this planet to win it back. To take it under our wings. To nurture it back into health. To confront and confound its enemies. Not one of us has the right to ignore that particular role we are each destined to play in securing an illumined future for our earthly home.

Quit the Matrix – Build the Ark – In Three Steps

Once one has got a reasonable handle on ‘what’s wrong’ the next step involves putting into place something ‘that feels right’.

Not so easy. But essential of course – and in many respects a natural process of follow-through without which, knowing ‘what’s wrong’ gradually fades away. Until there are three sharp knocks on the front door – and then its too late.

The way we progress our conscious awareness is by bringing together, or becoming in some way part of, a group of individuals who wish to share together the experience of putting into place a manner of daily existence which fulfils our creative aspirations and practical needs. Both. If we can’t do that we can’t be fully human. And not being fully human means never realizing who we really are. (more…)

Manifesto for 21st Century Food and Farming

“Farming for the People with the People”

The global food economy, served and shaped via state and corporate control of the food chain, has resulted in unquantifiable levels of pollution, destruction and exploitation in every dimension of agriculture, from soil to seed, to plant, to animal and to man. In other words: our existence.

As we approach the second decade of the 21st century, it is becoming abundantly clear that an entirely new vision, understanding and implementation is required in order for agriculture to truly serve its original purpose of feeding humanity (all peoples) with good quality, affordable and mostly local foods in ways that do not harm the environment.

International Resistance to the the Modification and Control of Life

Resistance comes in three shades: passive, occasionally active and active.
The corporate and political powers who aim to take a controlling influence over the food chain count on the majority of civil resistance being of a passive ‘dumbed down’ nature. They can tolerate a certain amount of ‘occasionally active’ interference in their master plan, but they do not tolerate genuinely active resistance. So those of us who hammer continuously on genetically modified corporate doors are monitored, harassed and generally marginalised by the prevailing ‘status quo’ and its media poodles.We should have little doubt that the prevailing corporate backed government agenda is financed by the big agribusiness and pharmaceutical corporations, who turn-in annual combined profits in double figure billions and who do, indeed, aim to wrest total control over the human food chain. “Control oil and you control the State. Control food and you control the people” said Richard Nixon’s ex secretary of state Henry Kissinger. (more…)
