15.00 Popular Assembly on Independence Square was completed , there began a concert dedicated to the Epiphany . Maidana act on stage folk groups.

14.50 The opposition announced a plan of action approved by the People’s Chamber on the Maidan in Kiev. During the People’s Chamber on Independence Square in Kiev today, January 19, 2014, opposition leaders announced a plan of action items for the near future.The plan was approved by the People’s Chamber, the press service of “Fatherland.”

“January 16 of the Party of Regions, the Communist Party of Ukraine and some individual deputies falsified adoption of a series of unconstitutional legislation. This was in violation of the Constitution, all the rules and regulations of the Verkhovna Rada procedures frankly criminal and illegal manner, without any real debate and vote counting.

In Ukraine, there was a coup aimed at overthrowing the constitutional order in the country, the destruction of the foundations of democracy and parliamentarism. Mentioned so-called laws seriously limit the rights of Ukrainian citizens to freedom of expression and peaceful assembly, and virtually eliminate democracy in Ukraine.

In this regard, we, the participants of the People’s Chamber on Independence Square, decided to:

1. Not to recognize the so-called laws adopted January 16, 2014, as null and void, and those who violate the Constitution of Ukraine.

2. People Create Rada as the union of People’s Deputies of Ukraine, members of the opposition faction “Fatherland”, “Svoboda”, “Beat Vitali Klitschko” and vnefraktsionnyh MPs who are in positions of defending democracy, the constitutional system and parliamentarism.

According to Article 5 of the Constitution of Ukraine, People’s Rada charge after confirmation of its powers by the Ukrainian people, to generate all the power vertical, starting with the government of national trust, which must be supported on the Maidan.

3. Carry-Ukrainian popular vote on the following matters:

  • expression of distrust President Viktor Yanukovych and his resignation constitutional way of expressing distrust those MPs who voted for January 16 so-called “laws of the dictatorship”;
  • confirmation of the constitutional and legal way the people of Ukraine the authority and legitimacy of the National Council;
  • restoration of constitutional order in the country, the impossibility of constructing totalitarianism and dictatorship and a return to the Constitution of Ukraine, as amended and supplemented, amended in 2004, which was unconstitutionally and illegally canceled.

4. Create a Constitutional Assembly as a body to draft a new Constitution of Ukraine, which would reflect a new, qualitatively conscious social contract between the state and citizens to ensure democracy, public trust and the rule of law, restore the balance between the branches of government, strengthening local government.

5. Conduct national democratic elections of Kyiv Mayor and Kyiv City Council, providing them with training and organization.

6. Consult the local authorities to establish municipal police departments and units of the people’s self-defense (public associations to participate in the protection of public order) in order to ensure the realization of the people’s will.

Assign tasks to these units to ensure public safety, the fight against corruption, organized crime, drug trafficking, maintaining law and order during the elections.

7. Release and provide full legal rehabilitation of all political prisoners, including Yulia Tymoshenko, “- the document says.

13.18  One of the organizers Avtomaydana Dmitry Bulatov said on Maidan that protesters need a single leader of the resistance , who will take the responsibility and lead them to victory. Addressing the leaders of the opposition, he said: “This is not a dance area, and public resistance. We have no more time while you arrange the distribution of posts. We today – last chance to defend themselves, we need a leader of the resistance, which would take the responsibility. ” “Before Avtomaydan urged the opposition to decide on a single candidate. Now it is irrelevant – it is clear that no fair elections next year and will not be in 2015 will appoint the same prisoner,” – said Bulatov. “That’s why we ask you to name a single leader of the resistance,” – he said.

Participants Evromaydana the square front of the stage supported his appeal, chanting “Leader”.

#Harper’s ‘Pigs at the Trough’ II: #Fantino vs #Canada’s #Veterans #cdnpoli via #pnpcbc

This Must See and Share Breaking News Press Conference aired during CBC’s Power & Politics with Evan Solomon on Tuesday, January 28, 2014. This is a web-accessible follow-up to the issue regarding the disrespected Veterans who were in Ottawa to fight ongoing service cuts by the Harper Government and lobby against the closing of their regional offices. After waiting all day, Canada’s Veterans left an emotional meeting feeling betrayed Tuesday, after being cut short and virtually ignored by Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino.

#Harper’s ‘Pigs at the Trough’ II: #Fantino vs #Canada’s #Veterans #cdnpoli via #pnpcbc Playlist


Points to Ponder:

  1. What are the provisions that will be allocated towards assuring the accessibility of reliable, high-speed internet access for Disabled Veterans that are required in order to access services?
  2. What are the provisions that will be allocated towards providing education, computers, assistive technologies, equipment and devices for Disabled Veterans that require such considerations?
  3. What are the provisions that will be allocated towards providing competent computer and web-literacy training for Disabled Veterans that are not familiar with “social media” and/or the internet?

Bonus Pondering:

  • What are the provisions that will be allocated to those Disabled Veterans that will also be losing Canada Post’s door to-door postal delivery services?

“We are people too, it’s our job” Interview with the wounded in clashes in Kiev siloviki [translated]

14:34, 28 January 2014

“We are people too, it’s our job”

Interview with the wounded in clashes in Kiev siloviki

Wounded soldier special forces of Ukraine "Berkut" in hospital

Ukrainian special forces ready to crush “Evromaydan” if such order is given, which feared another Tuesday morning, before the meeting of the Verkhovna Rada. Soldiers of Special Forces “Berkut” do not see the protesters, said “maydanutyh” hirelings, idlers and vagabonds, told “Lente.ru” wounded fighter special, which was able to talk to one of the hospitals in Kiev. Unlike commandos in the ranks of internal troops, exposed as a barrier between the “Berkut” and protesters observed fermentation. They are actively trying to persuade people to move to the side, and although it is up to fraternization is not reached, at least one soldiers of – source “Heathcliff”, also met in the hospital – just will not shoot to kill and ready to move to the opposition .

Protesters flooded the streets of Kiev, Ukrainian Interior Ministry soldiers from the Special Forces “Berkut” truly hate – too cruel to those battles with activists. To the soldiers of Interior Ministry troops, who exhibited in the living barrier between the “Berkut” and maydanovtsami last, on the contrary, are treated with greater understanding. Them actively, but unsuccessfully trying to persuade people to move to the side. The correspondent of “Heathcliff” spoke with two police officers wounded – “Berkut” and veveshnikom, and they both say that using force, following orders from superiors, but the attitude to events in Kiev they have differed.

Internal troops Semen ( name changed ) admitted to “Lente.ru” that if the confrontation between the government and the opposition will develop in force scenario, he is ready to go to the people, refusing to shoot people, because the crowd will be his friends and former colleagues . Fighter “Berkut” Roman, who also asked not to disclose his name, on the contrary, ready to kill protesters as confident: “normal” people on Independence – there are only drunk and homeless.

Nor Roman nor Simon did not sympathize with the opposition, including its leaders weaklings, but to President Viktor Yanukovych, they are treated differently. If the “Berkut” all ideological support the government, the Interior Troops soldiers dream to get away for a demobilization alive.

On the dispersal reflects and activist Michael Maidan Gavriliouk who gained fame after the release of the controversial movie depicting how over him, naked and beaten, bullied “Berkut”.

“There are times when [employees” Berkut “] threesome just kill a person”

Roman, soldier Special Forces “Berkut”, lives in Sumy, trauma – injury of the ankle of the left leg.

“Lenta.ru,” How you been injured?

Roman: January 22 morning we stood in the monolith [street Hrushevskoho], kept the defense shields for when started from their [the protesters] side attack came a stone hit my leg so that I could not walk. Order storm, someone beat [then] have been reported, we just stood there, not bothering anyone. As soon as I arrived, January 20, I burned [after being hit “Molotov cocktail”], but in time extinguished, firefighters rushed.

You generally consider tough action from your colleagues “Berkut” justified?

Is it okay when police lights ? Or shot a policeman ( later became known that the murder has nothing to do with the Maidan – approx. “Heathcliff” ), and two more took to him and held ( also no evidence for this – approx. “Heathcliff” ). This peaceful demonstrators? Here in 2004 [during the “orange revolution”] people came out with flags, and there were also boys monolith, but they came to chat with flowers, and not with “Molotov cocktails”. We are people, too, it’s just our job. All we must seek a peaceful way, your mind, and not by force.

That employees “Berkut” chased, beaten people, I do not support, but when their lives are in danger, I believe that it [normally].

One gets the impression that the staff of “Berkut” bitter attacks on the street Hrushevskoho therefore behave inappropriately and do not hold back.

Have you read that [Nationalist Party] “Freedom” offers to take a knife and cut staff to go “Berkut”, their mothers, children? Is this normal? I’m not afraid for myself, but for my family.

It is said that in the “Ukrainian House” found cartridges . It is clear in fact, that the cartridges are not the police left, we always pick up all along, and it was done on purpose. Most of the channels shows only one way – that “Berkut” so bad, beat a couple of people. And how they beaten?

But among employees “Berkut” no one died, and people died.

According to the law “On Police”, in such dangerous situations the police officer has the right to use firearms. We only used rubber bullets and traumatic weapon does not kill a person, even if shot at close range. They also fired from traumatic, but they already have weapons more impressive, with iron balls.

It is said that we use live ammunition, but no employees of military weapons. Maybe on the side shot, and fell into his. There is utter confusion, there is no particular problem, everything is clear.

Protesters claim that you to tear-gas grenades bind the nuts and bolts.

No, we throw grenades with gas, but with their hand grenades just charged bolts. Lay with me one guy who underfoot homemade grenade exploded, and his legs were completely severed. Taken and made a powerful firecracker and there screwed screws.And they themselves are complaining because suffer from their own grenades that fly [randomly] in all directions.

Why do you beat women and children on November 30 Independence student (after protests because of the refusal of President Viktor Yanukovych signed an association agreement with the European Union, had already damped flared up – approx. “Heathcliff” )?

And in 27 years, and in 47 years you can be a student. Children were beaten? But I am also someone’s child, children may be different. Why are there children on Independence earn money? I can say that those who oppose the “Berkut”, per night get three dollars.

And this information about proplachennyh activists you get from the Internet or from the commanders?

No, we do read the internet. Boss tells us nothing, because he knows nothing. We are working on orders, we are told – we do. Do not say – we will not do anything.

There are criminal orders. You are ready to perform?

Criminal – of course not.

Shoot to kill people in, for example?

Looking into someone. And if you have five people were burned alive, I have the right to use weapons? And if I’m hurt, and I know that if I do not shoot, kill me? We also have a Man beaten with an awl to poke in the leg wound seven centimeters long. Well, that was saved by a bulletproof vest, which in the liver and kidneys were holes.

I am more than sure that almost all of the protesters do not work. My father and mother’s work and can not go here. Why [they] do not go and work for the money to beat policemen? Here they [the protesters] are eager to Europe and say you saw in Europe disperse protesters with stones and “Molotov cocktails”? There’s a policeman with protesters no contact, if there is a finger touch, the police can shoot anyone.

Press officer of the Kiev police present at the interview, adding that according to the instructions police may shoot if suitable to build closer than five meters. “But they were not issued weapons, that did not happen,” – he adds.

You actively throws in response stones and Molotov cocktails, you allowed or is it your initiative?

Personally, I had no time to throw. But let’s say flew “Molotov cocktail” at the feet and crashed. And that, to stand and wait until the bottle burst? Wait until my friend and pyhnem? Better hand or foot tilt. Just a camera catches a policeman when he throws a cocktail in the side, that’s all.

Everyone says that work on your part snipers.

The “Golden Eagle” is snipers, but they per person out of ten seconds. One minute you can kill six people. They say that the sniper is all night – and during this time know how much could be killed? Sniper rounds missing, only hunting bullet caliber 12 millimeters.

You have also the same gun 12 caliber.

We gun designed for maximum flight of bullets 50-60 meters, and if you insert a hunting cartridge, the trunk will swell and burst. It is intended only for the rubber bullets, the same special holes visible.

Many protesters knocked your eyes bullets.

Maybe it knocked slingshot. They run helter-skelter, they have failed. One ran forward and the other behind him with a slingshot is the first turns and runs back – and then he arrives stone. And then they all want? Capture the regional administration. But you hear now that they said that in Europe they want? No. Our president gave them a chance to go to the government, and why they did not go? The three leaders, who gathered Maidan already own can not do anything. I think it will soon begin looting shops.

Peaceful demonstrators seized hotel where foreign journalists live ( in fact the party “Freedom” took located near the Independence Square hotel “Ukraine” under its protection – approx. “Heathcliff” ). You know why? Here is the “Channel 5” ( owned by billionaire and oppositionist Petro Poroshenko – approx. “Heathcliff” ) is very disappointing to see, there is talk about us, that if I believed him, I would have resigned. Other channels show the truth.

Is it true that you aiming to shoot at journalists?

No, I have not seen. That journalist “5 channel” complained that he broke the camera, but even your glasses are not broken, if they get caught! They’re just a pain in the hole camera made and shoved the ball there.

My colleague was severely beaten “Berkut”. Why?

Journalists are different. Someone in a bright vest with the word “press” run. And there are journalists in glasses, mask and helmet. How do I know who it is. Maybe it was revolutionary to me under the bus wants to throw a grenade.

Employees of the press service of the Interior Ministry of Ukraine adds that sometimes on the street are going to attack Hrushevskoho three: front man with the camera, and behind him – two with “Molotov cocktails”. “And your reporter was beaten because he went to the machines that followed the” Berkut “, and everyone who was in the car, of course, came under the hand” – describes what happened policeman.

Why beat people lying down? Is not this abuse of power?

Many do not want to go on the bus and fall to the ground. How to raise a man? Whip or pull his legs. When we pull up, it gets more scratches. Or have to use force, so he got up and went. In the dispersal of student we Maidana three or four times told them to leave. Animal probably understand faster. Say that we beat the students, but I’m seen as “Berkut” shoved under a burning log and began to raise his visor. I saw that this employee does not have [more] skin on the face.

That is, excessive police violence does not apply?

I think not. There are certain moments when [employees “Berkut”] threesome just kill a person. But you also understand, we also constantly beaten, fired, insulted, spat upon. The man in the ranks and falls off, and they smile. I do not wish anyone harm, but want their own children went to serve in the army, and with them it happened. I want to see how they would react and whom they would support. It is clear that son.

In the case of an order to clean up the Maidan how fast can you do it? Or you push back?

For 20, a maximum of 40 minutes will be clean Kiev if they give orders. Nothing they can not do, they do not have discipline, strategy. They are like cattle just – throw and shout. At first, until we reach the barricade and climbed over them, suffer a lot of militia, but when climbing – Kiev will be clean.

Tires that burn protesters, strongly interfere with you?

Yes, nothing can be seen and it is impossible to breathe, do not save the mask.Generally, look what turned Kiev. If you are patriots, then at least be cleaned flags.When the police just took the flag from the machine, then shouted that he was a fascist. And who is there a fascist? Everyone knows that [the protesters] came from the west of Ukraine. Monument to Lenin had stopped here. Why in the western regions of the Nazis greeted with bread and salt – what are they patriots? A true patriot for his country should give life, and what a patriot as his country and destroys the building captures?

Well, if we leave, they take over the cabinet, what will they do next? There will be litter, sleeping and lounging all over the country. I went to the Maidan in plainclothes out of curiosity, I saw there just drunk and piles of garbage. Well, that winter, and if it was summer, there would be a plague, probably begun. I believe that there are no normal people. Basically there bums, and normal peaceful people come there for half an hour, to be photographed.

You generally support President Yanukovych?

Yes, of course, I support the government, I’m working on it. But if it had not worked, I would have these [opposition] is not supported. [Vitali] Klitschko I respected as a boxer, but a true athlete must remain in the business and not to meddle in politics.How many years he took a ton in the head. Look at the way he talks.

Your colleagues agree with you? Do you, as I understand it, the unity. I saw the “Berkut” protesters chanted “Maydanutye – on the bench!”

We understand that it is also the people, but a little respect for them. Call them decent people hard. We togetherness, yes. It’s not even a friendship – I venture for him, and he for me. Say “Berkut” bad, but why not say “Berkut” good when we, for example, three former prisoners detained, raped the girl ( the story is not related to the Maidan – approx. “Heathcliff” )? Mom then resorted almost kissed our feet. And even if we hit someone with a stick, you will not die from this!

Are not you afraid of what you will do if the revolution is going to happen?

If they see something illegal, then let the plant. We are not touched, because if the “Berkut” will not be, then the new government will throw off the same crowd. She is uncontrollable. “Berkut” [potential new power] afraid to disperse. I hope that everything will be peaceful and normal.

Are you unhappy with the fact that there is still no order to disperse the Maidan?

Kiev – a beautiful city, but now I personally would not want to walk on it. Yes, I want to clean up this and all was in order.

“I give three-five percent of our shoot that no one will”

Simon, BB soldier and lives in Odessa, injury – concussion and poisoning by combustion products.

“Lenta.ru,” What happened to you?

Simon: I’m in Kiev in the cordon from the very beginning [protests]. Bankovoj on December 1 ( when several hundred protesters tried to break through to the building of the presidential administration – approx. “Heathcliff” ) was at the forefront, on January 19 in the morning ( the day started hard collision outside Hrushevskoho – approx. ‘Tapes. py “ ) brought us to the Verkhovna Rada, then lowered closer to the stadium “Dynamo” and put in the cordon. Our task was to keep people out to the Verkhovna Rada. At four o’clock [radical] started throwing vozgoratelnymi mixtures. Comrades near burned himself burned in principle. Threw stones on the head.

Concussion and an average degree of carbon monoxide poisoning. I do not know what they were thrown, but two days ago with facial exfoliates the skin and dandruff slazil large chunks.

And this is not your gas?

No, definitely not ours, because I was still knocked out and I lost consciousness.Comrades said that the helmet was breached, and the face was completely wet whether from acetone or from gasoline. At half past two nights I was taken to the “fast”, I’m about a half day was unconscious.

How do you feel about the fact that stand as a living barrier between the “Berkut” and protesters?

We have orders, I serve, I have to carry it, or you may plant. Say “Berkut” is all your fault, and we suffer, conscripts. Many comrades are asking why we blame?

Here I stand in front and me pushing buses. Here comes the team to wear gas masks, we are in five ranks, heard back, and the front – no. And before you throw smoke bombs, gas and vozgoratelnye mixture.

That is, even without a team can not be put on a gas mask?

No team can not do anything. Our task – to be in place and protect the cordon. It was impossible that people walked past us to the Verkhovna Rada. At any cost.

When they began to throw stones, the crowd ran to us, about ten people and just start beating us. Vitali Klitschko came, but even he could not stop them, it is also something thrown. Why do they beat us, I could not understand, we no danger without a team is not present.

You waiting for orders to attack?

We all stood in a flak jacket with a rubber truncheon and shield. – We are a fence, and the response should have been to take “Bars”, “Jaguar”, “Berkut” ( special forces of Ukraine “Bars” and “Jaguar” also perform tasks to suppress riots, but less known – approx. ‘Tapes. ru “ ). Came to us from the prosecutor, questioned us, I recognized a lot of people, which then stood in front of me and pulled the shields. Identified who saw, please remember if, why not. And so, without a team, we do not do anything wrong.

You did not hurt that hate “Berkut”, and gets you?

It’s a shame, of course. We generally serve in the PPP, and officially we should not be there, there must be “Bars” and “Jaguar”. Just put us there because we in Kiev.

Protesters offer you over to their side. They say that you swore not to the president, and the Ukrainian people. How do you feel about that?

Of course, I gave an oath of allegiance to the Ukrainian people, and now, in principle, it is not clear who and what I was giving. This is the most offensive, but on the order will not go away. In the oath was not specified president or my commanders, there was a nation. If the boss will give the team, I’m going [to disperse]. But if you still will not last long, then I just leave everything and go to the people. I just can not stand, and so I put up two months. I’m 20 years old, I want a family, children, and now I can not get it all done. I left three months rose, I have a job, the parents, the girl who loves me.

Is there a point of no return for you? When people died, many thought that you can falter.

I’ve thought it all over. I do not want people to die. We are all the same people. Let them have already changed the president and all command. But the question is, if you put someone who does not know what it all will not be any worse? If these [opposition] MPs can not even his [radical nationalists] to stop, what they will do with power?

Shoot you?

Personally, I refuse, I will not shoot. Give three-five percent of our shoot that no one will, because there are our friends and comrades.

When you’re standing with a shield in the cordon, you see their comrades who come to the Maidan. If the team will be nominated and go against the people, then how am I going to hit your friend? That can not be, because I studied with him. We all here have seen comrades, sisters cousins, siblings. Some even said they would not go to the Maidan, in outfits specially interceded, so as not to go, because they knew that their parents on the Maidan. Not so scary to go out and stand in line, and the worst thing – to go against their comrades, because the team [attack] could come any day.

That is, you realize that the people on Maidan stands and not provocateurs?

I understand it perfectly, there are 20-30 people provocateurs, and the rest – simple people, just like us. They see that a bunch of sheep do it [go on the attack on the police], why not stand up and do not see how it all happens. We are blamed for everything, but let them count how many of my friends are in the hospital. One had 2 days to muster, and he broke his leg and knocked his jaw, and his parents “ambulance” brought. Fellow next to me with his own body armor began to hit in the face. For what? He is 18 years old, he was told to stand, and he almost did not understand why.

And you ask the commanders?

Yes, but we will answer the commander? Officers say that we are just like you, and we are also coming from the top teams. We stood between January 19 and is talking about when it will end. But no one knew, and we all said, “Wait, wait, everything will be fine”, but does not normally happen. Nobody says anything and does not know.

Parents call me in the morning, and I say that all is well. To be honest, I want to quickly come home. My mother, grandmother, father, they are waiting for me. If you have a team, I perform it, but I do not want to suffer, because I have a goal: not to suffer for the sake of the family. If it were possible, I would have gone home, I had not been on the Maidan, I’m not interested.

How do you feel about the current government, the opposition?

I have almost all suits. That people give, then give the best of [regime change] will not.What they want? Well, they will be removed Yanukovych, but someone put it? There will always be worse, and there is someone better?

Mother says, and begins in Odessa Maidan. Okay here – the government want to remove, but what does it do in other cities? City Hall will be removed from someone that does it make?

My opinion is. How much it may lasts Yanukovych care what will happen to us. If he did not do anything for the soldiers, in the future – even more so. He’s just afraid. I’m waiting for an adequate command: either leave, or to disperse, not to beat, but simply disperse. Or even really let himself go away. Why torture people – me, my parents, you? I understand them too well, they are a month, get sick, people die. I feel sorry for them as well as my friends. I’m not that insensitive. Let already given adequate command. I never want any harm.

And you with the “Berkut” communicate? They, in my opinion, a different attitude to the protesters.

An employee of “Berkut” no service, and work. If he did not know how to do, and only hurt the person and shoot it where to go. He stays here and works.

Fireworks fly when it hurts?

When arrives to you, it’s unpleasant. Afraid to lose a comrade. If you think that we are not afraid, then I say we are very scared. I am the same person as they were, and I’m afraid. If I go to the district dress PPP, I’m scared too, because no one likes the police.When you throw a log and say, “Die, bitch,” that my comrades, eighteen-year, shocked.

They felt when standing on Bankova street, you beat radical protesters, and you hold the line, not responding?

The worst thing was when we went on a bulldozer. Bankova was wounded 200 people, some were in intensive care, but it’s hidden. Many parents are then taken away to fight in private clinics to treat. In the hospital came generals, our parents are, ask how it happened, why our children are suffering, and they can not tell their parents.

“Guys still have left the fruit and wiped them with the earth in peacetime”

Michael Gavriliouk activist “Evromaydana” lives in Chernivtsi region; fighters “Berkut” detained him on the street Hrushevskoho beaten, stripped to the goal and mocked , including jumping on his head

“Lenta.ru,” How is your status now?

My condition is excellent, the best that can be. Because I’m among the Cossacks (Gavriliouk after his release from the police department on the same day and returned to the maidan lives in one of the barricades – approx. “Heathcliff” ), which comes from the radiance and good spirit. He moved in with me and slowly lifts my spirit and my health.

Tell us what happened to you.

I was captured on the street Hrushevskoho. When I pulled back, then lifted the wounded on the road, the last one was seriously wounded because his stunned bomb a couple of minutes he lost consciousness. I dragged him through the snow, then he woke up, and I showed him the way to escape. I have something slowly recede, and the wounded, turned quickly run ( laughs ). Behind me were “titushki” as I call them, jerboa, it freaks. They overwhelmed me. Ran “Berkut” and began their dirty work. They know their job well, they began to knead, stomp your feet right on the spot – your garbage junk. I was then lifted and dragged him to his lair, accompanying it blows.

There they beat me on, then some fool occurred to me to rip the clothes. Then they began to pluck me clothes, beaten, jumped on my head in the snow. This was not enough for them, they were photographed, until someone stood foot on my head.Then they came up to cut me forelock, raised me embrionchika, from the ground, tore my hands and started one knife to cut the forelock.

Well, well not a member.

Still they cut cock! Nice, thank God, because like me, the Cossacks should multiply, and there should be lots and lots. Member – is the main joy in the man! ( laughs ) In-by.

Forelock cut off, they are still a little stoned and sent me to the police van. There gave me this same as I [detainee], but dressed his fufaechku and cotton pants. I was sent from the site to the hospital because of me was a little confusing because of the blow.In the House, I lay in the bath, three or four an hour nap, opened his eyes, which I had previously swum, saw the door, where to go, and taking someone’s unwanted ankle boots and jacket, decided to go to Maidan.

Was not thought to go home?

A home to me that someone put the victory on the pocket? Or I’ll sit on something and I will? Not fit the case. Here are my brothers are the Cossacks, and I shall be at home to wallow? Not suitable as a Cossack. Go home I thought never even visited.

How do you rate the “Berkut”?

I think they are abnormal and inadequate. When we “Berkut” taken captive, we have not stripped them, and soldered, fed and sent back ( this is an exaggeration, because even with “titushkami”, which sometimes caught and delivered to the maidan, turning much worse, including strongly beat – ca. “Heathcliff” ). We do so with the prisoners, and since they are – it will not work.

Will now be harder to deal with them?

It will not work. They should not in itself be so. One thing I can say, come the hour of judgment, and they are sinners, will answer for their acts.

You generally feel it right – throwing stones at the police?

A properly police shoot at civilians, throw their grenades? Already made ​​seven dead at the moment! There are three-four disabled people, three thousand wounded! It’s okay from their side? ( angry and starts screaming ) What are you asking me these questions?You do not understand what? Guys who perished, they have not left the fruit and wiped them with the earth in peacetime! Is this normal? Are they not throw stones?

It is a mutual process.

What is a mutual process? This garbage “titushki” engaged in theirs, they hire them, that they provoked “Berkut” go and beat the normal ordinary citizens, it is one hundred percent ( in fact responsible for the clashes with the police took the radical nationalists of the “right sector,” one of associations that make up the backbone of the Maidan – approx. “Heathcliff” ). I know who it throws stones. This “titushki”! They are paid the money, and they all do.

How do you see a way out of this situation?

Victory will be ours! President voluntarily leave his post, and everyone else with him.At heart Yanukovych already thinking where he should move.

You will be able to resist the police, if it starts to sweep?

Do you know how we got here? Flick fingers, and thousands come running here for a couple of minutes. This is not Russia and Belarus, the people here will woo-oo-oo.They have already tried once, but then we have answered them peacefully.

This time will not respond peacefully?

slyly ) And this you will see what will be.

“Titushki” as an element of political struggle in Ukraine

Caught activists "Evromaydana" "titushki"

Ukraine continues “parade Maidan.” Opposition capture authorities in the regions occupied by buildings in the center of Kiev and close police. Against this background, the hired gunmen of the number of athletes, or “titushki” – tried and tested means of power to fight opponents – sidelined. They are still used in eastern Ukraine, where protesters are trying to assert themselves. In general, however, the radicals of the opposition demonstrated that they can act much larger scale.

Even before the current “revolution” local authorities warned that the craze “titushkami” may leave her side – street fighters can use and its opponents. “In the end, too active use titushek lead to the fact that they are either out of control or … take your side, – wrote the local press last summer. – In fact, the guys are used to working without ideals and fantasies for conditional two hryvnia per day. And let the two become two thousand or twenty – it does not matter. It is important that there are people who are using the same titushek one day get rid of the expensive Yanukovych [Yanukovych] because “he frankly got” … “.

The publication, which appeared last summer, it was suggested that the organization of such a scenario may take oligarchs. A few months later in Kiev began “Evromaydan” under the banner of European integration and the change of power in the country (according to one version , the protest campaign was supported by just the local representatives of big business). Soon radical groups were already in the city center street battles and stormed government buildings in the regions.

These people – some now call them “rebels” – began to start a “revolution” as a major driving force. Formally, they opposed the “titushkam” positioning itself as patriots and fighters against “gangster regime.” In fact, however, even the opposition leaders do not always distinguish them from one another.

“We sandals for Yanukovych …”

High protest activity in Ukraine provided the demand for tough guys hired as power and its opponents. With their help, as noted by “Komsomolskaya Pravda in Ukraine” , politicians face a number of problems:

• provocation (attack on political rivals rally or meeting their own colleagues – in the latter case provocateurs provided with the appropriate symbols, so they portrayed representatives competing political forces);
• protection of the rally (protection against the above-mentioned agents provocateurs);
• maintaining discipline among the protesters (follow that they, for example, not drinking alcohol and wandered around the city);
• Support the election (on duty far away from the sites, and if need be, for example, “recapture protocols from rival candidate”).

Phones “professional fighters”, as contended edition, have each organizer rallies.Designated recruitment – sports clubs, law enforcement and fitness institutions.

If desired, type “titushek” can be even without a special relationship. Last summer it showed journalists are “1 +1”, who came to Kiev Central Station and tried to hire a couple of people there of the number of migrant workers – ostensibly to scare the person refuses to repay the debt. Wishing to find easily. One of those who spoke with reporters, expressed readiness to take and for more serious work. “What should I do? Beat, cut, kill? “- He asked briskly. Journalist Publishing “Prestupnosti.NET”, in turn,has witnessed how the station collected the homeless. Recruiter, who admitted that he represents the ruling Party of Regions, said: “we sandals for Yanukovych.” When asked, he explained that “sandals” means “to beat.”

Dial “titushek” can also email. In addition, according to the magazine “Focus” , and customers work directly with the owners of sports clubs, and those already collected fighters. From the customer organization engaged people who are usually associated with sports media, and sometimes themselves control sports clubs – which naturally makes it easier.

As the “News” in Ukraine in general has a large number of private sports clubs receiving funding from politicians and businessmen, and they can optionally use athletes for their own purposes. “Some of these clubs are not licensed, are located in the basements of houses and there due to the fact that the management section gives paw chief housing department and a policeman – says metropolitan boxing coach, who wished to remain anonymous. – They have the same essence. Although athletes do not even know about. Their coach just puts a fait accompli. Like, you need to go back and then do such. Sometimes guys get paid for it. And sometimes – not. ”

The amount of payment varies. On average, it is a few hundred hryvnia per day.According to the data of the Ukrainian opposition at the end of November last year, for the provocation in the capital at the beginning of “Evromaydane” power dialing “titushek” for 200-500 hryvnia (from 800 to 2000 rubles) per day. Additional costs include the cost of masks, respirators (during street clashes in Kiev used tear gas), shields to protect the hands and feet during fights and fighters of transportation around the city. If we consider equipment and transportation, it is preparing a “titushki” estimated “economic truth” , will cost about a hundred euros.

In December, the opposition evaluated by “titushek” in Kiev, about ten thousand people. The former police chief of Kiev, and is now a member of the opposition of the “Fatherland” Vitaly Yarema, according to “Radio Liberty” , claimed that the police engaged in their recruitment. The objectives of the hired fighters, according Yarema, included attacks on protesters and provoke clashes with police officers. Some relation to the “athletes”, as reported in “Economic truth”, and attributed to people from the inner circle of President Viktor Yanukovych.However, documentary evidence of these rumors, as emphasized edition, was not.

At most of the opposition on the experience of using athletes also had rallies. Visitor sports club near Kiev told me that his friends in different times and were hired to guard the rallies of the ruling Party of Regions, and the opposition party “BLOW”.As for the opposition Nationalist “Freedom” (which, along with the “hits” supported “Evromaydan”), they, according to the magazine “Focus” do without mercenaries, preferring to rely on “ideological fighters.” Party, as the newspaper notes, has a fighter wing – the organization “Sich”, and also enjoys the support of football fans. After the “Evromaydana” series fan associations openly spoke on her side.

“Let them, the boys, their own!”

Object of special interest, street fighters in Ukraine began last spring, after a scandalous brawl in the center of Kiev and attacks on journalists. Actually, it was after this incident the word “titushki” and rooted in the Ukrainian lexicon.

May 18 opposition gathered his supporters at a rally in the capital. The same day, the party in power in Kiev organized their own “anti-fascist” rally, where participants denounced the party “Freedom”, and along with other opposition. Several dozen young people present at the event, separated from the main group and came to blows with the nationalists.

From the “athletes” hit and journalists who were nearby – employee “5 channel” Snitsarchuk Olga and her husband, photographer of the newspaper “Kommersant-Ukraine” Vlad Sodel. According to the journalist, the people in tracksuits, noting that they are being filmed, knocked her to the ground and started beating him. Donated and her husband, who was trying to protect her. Police officers at this time, the victim told how, just watched the scene.

When the scene is still fighters arrived “Berkut”, “athletes” hid in a nearby park. One of them tried to hold, but he said: “Let them, boys, your” – and was released. Later there was a photo in which participants brawl peacefully communicate with fighters “Berkut”. Authorities with involvement in organizing fights denied.

One “athlete” journalists soon found in social networks. It appeared to be a resident of White Church, a member of the sports club “Budo” (the club, as it turned out, is on the territory of the local police department) Vadim “Romanians” Titushko. Among the participants of the fight was seen and the man looks like a leader of the local branch of the “Young regions” Vasily Boyko – however, the involvement of the latter in a collision in Kiev was not confirmed .

Titushko himself later recorded a video message in which he admitted that, as an athlete earns “on just such meetings.” However, he said that in this case, was allegedly hired by the opposition – to protect its rally for 250 hryvnia. Beating journalist young man vehemently denied, but later agreed to go to the world and recognized that “let journalistic activity.” The court sentenced him to a suspended sentence.

Unofficially participants of the fight suspected of involvement and other scandalous stories: attempts raider capture Kiev home teacher Nina Moskalenko, conflict around St. Vladimir Church in Kirovograd region and even attack on the car Aunt Julia Timoshenko (which two young men punctured tires).

On the other hand, one of the participants in the May incident later noticed at the congress of the opposition of the “Fatherland”, where he played the role of guardian.”The end customer – is not only the Party of Regions, – admitted , commenting on this topic, one of the “colleagues” Titushko. – This “BLOW” and “Fatherland.” Watch the video demonstrations with the regionals, and then – with rallies of opposition parties, except that the “Liberty.” And you’ll see the same people – us. All the boys who took part in the fight that Saturday, and once worked for the opposition. ”

As for the Titushko Vadim, he quickly became known throughout Ukraine. His name (or rather, last name) has become synonymous. In summer it ironic interpretation appeared in the online dictionary of modern Ukrainian language, and later wound up and the corresponding article in the Ukrainian “Wikipedia” . The authors identified “titushek” as “the collective name of semi-criminal elements, Gopnik and the unemployed, are used by the authorities to prevent the activities of opposition activists.” Apparently, it is assumed that if these subjects are on the side of the opposition against the government, the “titushkami” they are no longer considered.

Lawyer Titushko Oksana Skoda way, threatened to stop the speculation around his name. “Now coming to the finish paperwork, then we will be able to prosecute the media or the people’s deputies for the mention of the word” titushki “,” – said she was at the end of last year. For “colleagues” Titushko is naming, however, is not the worst option: in the ruling party, as claims opposition activist Eugene Karas them, for example, is called “carp.”

“We – as titushki only good …”

By the end of last year the word “titushki” Ukraine has become a part of everyday life.The reason for this was enough. So, at the end of November, a group of people in tracksuits defeated local maidan in Dnepropetrovsk. Five activists in this case, were reportedly beaten to unconsciousness. For a while, according to “Left Bank” , watched the representative of the city council and the police appeared on the scene only after the attackers fled.

“Athletes” attracted to the protection of the city council, whose work in August, tried to block the opposition (to the questions of the journalist, who was going to talk to them, they respond refused ). Then, however, he eventually had to flee. “With dozens of” titushek “skedaddle vengeance towards the Maidan – described the incident“regional committee” . – They were chased by a crowd of angry opposition. One of Gopnik ran shouted, “Peck ******** [run]!” Who fled from “titushek” Pekoy was, and remains a mystery. But followed the advice of all the “colleagues” shouting. ”

Observers note that both sides of the political opposition gradually radicalized. Border as the image of “titushki” while gradually erased. During “Evromaydana” when began the attack on the police, it was difficult to make out who was behind it – whether planted the very same authority “titushki” (to give the authorities an excuse for a major “cleaning” – which it should be noted, in fact and did not use), or radically-minded opposition.

This fully manifested December 1, when the clashes near the presidential administration. Opposition almost immediately said that it was a provocation arranged “titushkami.” Support the opposition tycoon Poroshenko even wrote a statement to the police. However, in the press pretty quickly emerged evidence that in the storming of Representatives “right sector” – a radical nationalist wing “Evromaydana” (among other things, a bulldozer that was used in the assault, was previously seen in opposition disposal). Themselves nationalists did not conceal his involvement in the events of December 1 (for the version of one of the leaders of the association Igor Zagrebelniy, “there were some activists”), and even offended when they were called “provocateurs.”

“My friends and I went to the Mikhailovsky Square to protect the protesters from the police – told the publication “Facts” party collision named Sergei. – Guide the actions carried out “Right sector” … December 1 fee was announced at the crossroads and Instytutska Bankovoj as was information that planned blocking of the presidential administration. Sturm was not originally planned. ” According to him, the crowd began to warm up a few “healthy men with blue and yellow bandanas”, which provoked a fight. Member collision admitted that he at one point was even sorry policemen who “tightened under the blows of stones and chains and offered no resistance” – “but then won the belief that at this moment it is not people, and ministering to the current regime.”

The young man also said that before a woman adopted him and his associates for “titushek.” In response, she explained: “We – as titushki just … good.”

In “Right sector” for information “Vesti”, includes such organizations as “Patriot of Ukraine”, “Trident after Stepan Bandera”, “White Hammer” and UNA-UNSO.Nationalists did not deny his involvement in the events on the street in the center of Kiev Hrushevskoho where in late January, violent clashes broke out with the police, and they are involved in takeovers of regional administrations.

In a situation with “titushkami” – pro-government mercenaries – in the capital already there was a fracture. Their work has become much more dangerous: the authorities will now confront people without much hesitation to use force, in addition to the protection of the police, “athletes” can no longer be relied upon – the police and myself-that can barely defend. As a result, in Kiev the opposition announced on “titushek” hunt, or, as she gleefully wrote sympathetic local media – “safari” (this, according to the opposition, preceded by an attempt of the authorities to use a group of provocateurs pogroms in the city center). Activists toured the city, caught suspicious young people and was taken to the headquarters of the opposition. There they were interrogated at the camera – some confessed that they were hired for the money.Before release, some left on his forehead inscription “servant” or “Tituha.”

Some government support “titushki” still provide in the east, where now – after the West – trying to consolidate the “revolutionaries”. On Sunday “titushki” as reported , along with the “Berkut” disperse opposition supporters who had gathered at the regional administration building in Kiev. A day earlier, a group of people in tracksuitsattacked by members of the opposition marches in Kharkov.

In opposition, meanwhile, already discernible signs of a civil war. In conditions when the power is happening can not affect the parties – for example, “Berkut” radicals and opposition – lose containment centers. And now the “Berkut” mocks caught the opposition, stripping him naked. A crowd of “revolutionaries”, besieged the house with several hundred security forces, talks about how to burn them all. “War does not start when the positional battles go – says Vadim Gorshenin Institute President Omelchenko – and when a soldier begins to avenge fallen comrade on the principle of “an eye for an eye. ‘”

Even if a civil war will not come, and the “revolution” is complete overthrow of authority to deal with the consequences of conflict have long. This experience demonstrated the post-revolutionary Kyrgyzstan, where after the coup in 2010, there were several unsuccessful rebellions, and in ethnic clashes killed hundreds of people.If someone uses the crowd to solve their own problems, it is only a matter of time when the same will the opposite side. In this case the components of a crowd of people to call – “titushki” or otherwise – is not important.

#Censorship + #Harper + #Israel vs #Palestine – (#GolanHeights + #Syria) = #cdnpoli #Error404

Chronology of Events leading up to Stephen Harper and the Harper Regime’s hurried trip to Israel

The premise of this investigative chronological summary timeline is based upon the questions and evidence raised after reviewing and following up on an couple of articles recently published, Conservative party launches website to promote Stephen Harper’s first official Middle East trip by Jason Fekete, Published January 14, 2014 and Foreign Affairs website at odds with PMs comments in support of Israel, group says By Lee Berthiaume, Postmedia News January 15, 2014, regarding the current Harper Government’s Foreign Policy vs. the previous Canadian Government’s Foreign Policy as it relates to Israels economy, the Occupied Territories and Golan Heights.

The timing of a couple of hastily, oddly removed and edited, censored information, that were previously accessible and available via the official tax-payer funded Government of Canada’s websites that are currently being redirected to 404 “Page Not Found” error pages. Along with the PMO based Senate Scandal and past Harper Party electoral shenanigans, the timeline of this censorship is suspicious at best. Once combined with couple of new dedicated websites launched by the Harper Party that utilize taxpayer-funded government assets to promote support for Israel while propagandizing it’s foreign policies domestically and abroad, it gets worse considering how the Harper Government treats Canada’s Veterans.

This certainly appears to be a coup d’etat of sorts by Big Oil driven Fracking special interest groups in an apparent effort to capitalize on the chaotic and deadly situation in Syria, that was encouraged and instigated by the Harper Regime, in-order to subversively exploit the occupied Golan Heights while leveraging, manipulating and diverting Asian, Middle Eastern, African political support and financial assets between various taxpayer-funded government missions and groups domestically and abroad.

Questions to Ponder

  • Who is currently dictating and scripting Canada’s Foreign Policy and who is benefiting from this speculative Economic Diplomacy?
  • What are the costs and motivators behind the timeline and sequence of events?
  • When was the recently updated propaganda narrative mandated?
  • Where is the investment funding coming from and where will the profits go?
  • Why is there so much secrecy in the present and censorship of the past?
  • How does this “timing” affect Canada and Canadian interests in the future?

Please review the following trilogy of topics and chronological sequence of articles, archives, caches and snapshots of retrieved pages, paying close attention to the removed text, links and information from the Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada websites:

Frack, Like Crack, Is Whack: A Compendium of #cdnpoli Questions and Facts…

Frack, Like Crack, Is Whack

A Compendium of Questions and Facts…

As 2014 rushes in with an inadequately apologetic CEO Stephen Harper, sowing the seeds of discontent, we feel the need to explore for ourselves, with specific “targeted” detail, the “bubbles” that are behind the Harper Regime’s deceptive, ineffective and costly, Economic · Extraction · Action · Plan.

This an Urgent Call to Action against unfettered speculative commodities extraction actions and land grabs that will only lead to the eventual plummeting of property values, as the end of the commodities super cycle, converges with the bursting of the Enronesque shale gas bubble, coupled with the “short” fall of the CDN petro-dollar and unsustainable housing market. And yes, there is a difference betweewn shale oil and shale gas.

Please keep in mind that this is a precursor to a rather overly ambitious open source project that will be made available, in various web-accessible formats, to be used and abused as necessary that intends to develop a concise timeline of the transfer of power and wealth to global speculators via the Harper Regime. The reason for this effort is simple and urgent. When information is inaccessible it is easily suppressible and wide open to speculative manipulation. Historically and by design, this type of speculation only benefits those investors that can accurately short the market before the market corrects itself. These are typically politically connected insiders that cycle with elections and operate in a global environment that allows them to offshore their assets within various safe haven currencies.

This collaborative research project intends to economically disprove the fundamentally unsound speculative economic “energy super power” theory that the Regime is “selling” to it’s base as economic diplomacy abroad to secure votes based upon economic speculation. These economic facts will provide additional data that can be utilized from the ground up within local and regional jurisdictions by Municipalities to insulate themselves from the eventual long term costs associated with early exposure to short term speculative market return hype.

This issue ties right into the opaque housing market conundrum that is being driven by condo speculators, simply flipping condos that are actually worth less than the “sale” price,  just like the shale gas speculators are flipping worthless wells to those willing to “buy” the hype. Basically “We the People” intend to Burst Harper’s Bubble and while this is not an easy task, it is indeed already underway but not well coordinated across all fronts, especially when it comes to the numbers.

Let us make no mistake the Harper’s rushed mission to Israel is nothing more than the purposeful placement of short term speculative “Canadian” corporate interests ahead of the long term costs associated with speculative LNG fracking exploration within the Golan Heights, which btw, is indeed Syria, which in case you may have missed it, has been embattled in an almost 3yrs long “war” against an alQaeda insurgency that is publicly backed and financially by Harper Regime Allies, Israel, Saudi Arabia and Qatar and covertly through NATO via Turkey, Libya and Iraq.

This speculative intervention is NOT in the best interests of Canada as only occupying speculators and land grabbers prosper while the occupants of the lands suffer insecurity and instability as it spreads to Lebanon and Jordan.

The fact is that the Harper Regime is indeed funneling, aka: investing, “our” tax dollars into purely speculative markets via legislative interventions and subsidies. Not only that but, they are doing this during a period of ongoing collapse within the resource extraction sector which is nearing the end commodities super cycle, aka: bust. We know that these bursting bubbles only benefit a small minority of insiders that short the market at the expense of the majority that provide the bailouts over the long term. Over the past 100 or so years these results have historically shown the same wealth redistribution trends and more recent examples are the Financial sector Govt bailouts, LIBOR, Enron, Savings and Loan Crisis, etc.

We realize that many are already engaged in various ways and understanding that there are dozens of financial and social mismanagement issues related to their ideological obsession with balancing the deficit that they themselves hyper-inflated to record levels. Sure a good ol’ fashioned tar sands and bird flu feathering in the public square would be nice while other bazooka campaigns and shotgun approaches are effective, sometimes snipers are the most effective weapon against speculators.

Before we publicly publish any links to the pending project, we would like to inquire if there is any interest in active participation as we seek to move forward in as efficient manner as possible. At this point, we require hundreds of documents, charts, graphs and images to be transcribed and converted into text format so that the data can be presented with web-accessible standards. As this process slowly unfolds we intend to compile additional archived and supporting data and organize the data into chronological order, by category/topic on an independent stand alone website.

Dissecting the the NYT Shale Gas Bubble emails


Documents: Industry Privately Skeptical of Shale Gas

Over the past six months, The New York Times reviewed thousands of pages of documents related to shale gas, including hundreds of industry e-mails, internal agency documents and reports by analysts. A selection of these documents is included here; names and identifying information have been redacted to protect the confidentiality of sources, many of whom were not authorized by their employers to communicate with The Times.


Signs of Trouble

Stoking Excitement About Shale Gas

Industry Doubts on Shale Gas Economics

Questioning Company Claims

WTF is Green Fracking?

The heavy subsidies and lobbying efforts that the Harper Regime is doling out on behalf of, and to the carbon based fossil fuel industries that contradicts the supply/demand principles of pricing fossil fuels that is always subject to the continuous boom/bust cycles. The fact is that as technology improves they will not have a chance of competing with increasingly efficient solar/wind/renewable micro-grid electricity systems in providing the ever growing energy needs.

There is a lot of attention being placed upon fracking for a variety of reasons, including environmental concerns but we must keep in mind that the Harper Regime are doing nothing more than fueling shorts in the speculative market activities in order to achieve inflated budget numbers. This presents itself in their subjective and speculative short term vision investments in much the same way as the way the condo market, which is, contrary to popular belief, traded like a commodity. This speculation is fueling an artificial rise in actual home prices in some markets that in the short term will boost the financial sectors ans since homes are not considered commodities and prices are rising due to condo markets one can expect a fairly significant “correction” once the speculators exit the market in favour of quick high yield investment opportunities abroad.

The often overlooked, outside global investors circles, is the looming bust that always follows a commodities boom, aka: commodities super cycle, that will certainly affect the global economy in disastrous ways for the vast majority. We need only to look towards the ongoing global currency wars, the US Fed’s QE liquidity intervention mechanisms and the reliance upon state sponsored investment in China along with our overvalued dollar to forecast the future trends in the financial sectors once the CDN Dollar corrects vs the US Dollar in concert with the corrections with the Pound, Euro and Yuan. Then there is Germany, that is not embracing consumption and imports as a method for building a strong national economy but continuing it’s reliance upon high quality exports to maintain it’s financial dominance.

The focus of global commodities investors is in consumable, rather than renewable commodities. This is in reference to “one use” commodities, such as oil and natural gas, as opposed to renewable commodities that can be recycled, such as copper and iron. We need only look towards the recent announcement of the departure, aka: cashing out, of Peter Monk, founder of Barrick Gold, to forecast the future trends with regards to the mining sectors.

Without considering that the a large portion of our agriculture is already being diverted and utilized for bio-fuels already, this is also problematic when taking into consideration that “developing” nations are not embracing the “high protein” foodstuffs and diets as intended. That drive was anticipated by the “developed” nations to fuel the profits of the fertilizer sectors, think potash, and the GMO sectors, think “resistant” to fertilizer seeds. We need only look towards the recent announcement of the closing of plants and massive layoffs at PotashCorp and the rejection of GMO’s in developing nations to forecast the future trends with regards to those sectors.
