WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TSUNAMI RELIEF FUND???
WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TSUNAMI RELIEF FUND??? – You won’t believe this!!!!!!!!!

No one can forget the weeping faces of the fishing families and other victims like them in Thailand, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka, on December 26th, 2004. Governments were SLOW to respond, but the private sector was swift with their donations, which came from school children’s bake sales, bottle drives, musicians concerts, religious groups and so forth. These ordinary citizens then demanded their governments match their generosity with official aid. As a result, in 6 months, $13 BILLION was raised – a world record!! Have you ever wondered what happened with this money??? The truth will disgust you!!!!

Sri Lanka’s president, Chandrika Kumaratunga, interpreted the tsunami as divine punishment for failing to sell off Sri Lanka’s beaches and forests, as proposed by USAID, the World Bank and the Asian Development bank, just 2 years earlier. These groups saw Sri Lanka as a high-end tourist destination. There was one major problem though. Millions of people would have to leave traditional villages to free up the beaches and the land for resorts and highways. Then, along came the tsunami that changed everything. Sri Lanka, thanks to years of warfare, had driven itself deep into debt buying weapons. It was not in the position to deal with the devastating disaster. It was forced to turn to the likes of the IMF, the World Bank and the US Treasury. This aid of course, came at a price; a price you cannot put a $dollar value to. In exchange for financial aid, Sri Lanka was forced to auction off much of their “state” (public) owned land to FOREIGN multinational corporations.

To make a very long story as short as possible, OUR (mine and your) donations were used to construct foreign owned tourist facilities on the beach front that used to be occupied by local fishermen for hundreds of years. One of these “dislocated” families is now going hungry on a parched piece of land in the middle of nowhere. Ironically, they have a couple of canoes donated by a well meaning NGO, 3 kilometers from the water, with not even a bicycle for transportation. She has this message for us:

“If you have something for me, put it in my hand.”

WE NEED TO TAKE THAT MESSAGE TO HEART!!!!!!!!!! We can no longer rely on our “organizations” to deliver our well meant “relief” dollars to the rightful victims!!!!! CORPORATE GREED, STANDS IN THE WAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, as was I, and MILLIONS of others. This book - "Shock Doctrine", in my opinion, should be compulsory reading in all North American schools. I'm not holding my breathe though!!!!Not likely to happen!

Yes, you're right. Our children are being "dumbed" down. Our children don't even know how to balance a simple bank book/account. They are "IGNORANT" (uneducated), of NATURAL mathematics. They do not know common everyday skills. But, really, what does this have to do with "OUR" relief dollars?

Not much, except, they and we are just being "taught" to look the other way while this kind of thing goes on...

Remember the commercials with Bush, Sr. and Klintoon sitting side by side asking for donations for the victims of the tsunami? Never heard how that money helped anybody. Did it go to help the corporate scum build a tourist attraction?

Americans are generous when called upon, but it's way past time we asked for an accounting of where the money we send in for relief effort goes. Give us true pictures showing the people being fed, given clean water, and having their lives put back together.

I doubt they only used it to build new hotels and resorts I'm sure a lot must have gone straight into some Illuminati bank accounts.

What we need.... is a movement... supporting companies that are based on a transparency model.

Under such a model we know how much things cost for the company... how much money they lose to inefficiency... how they treat the environment... how well they pay their workers.

If we find the price high, we can check exactly why it is so high... and maybe we find a reason to reject this company, maybe we find a reason to understand that this is indeed the lowest price a reputable company can sustain.

I do not believe in regulating it into existence, I believe in building this up... supported by those who recognize how important such a process is to the world at large. It stands or falls on its own merits...

as are many of the coastal sweeps with extreme weather-so obvious to the elders-



It is odd how many accept the bizarre and extreme weather as normal



Many changes are happening to the earth naturally but the handiwork of those with nefarious ends in mind are working their dark magick as well.



'weather wars' have been waged for a few decades at least-time to know the truth-Plenty of patents and many listed in Dr Nick Begichs' book on HAARP....GWEN,VLF,ELF,and Scalar-others as well!

bump for the children kidnapped and trafficked, bump for the struggling natives


bump for the masses willing to hear, for those willing to see,let the truth be revealed and let it loose the innate wisdom within
