February 23, 2011. http://www.theblaze.com/stories/ahmadinejad-predicts-mideast-unrest-coming-to-america/ Iran's president said Wednesday he is certain the wave of unrest in the Middle East will spread to Europe and North America, bringing an end to governments he accused of oppressing and humiliating people. "The world is on the verge of big developments. Changes will be forthcoming and will engulf the whole world from Asia to Africa and from Europe to North America," Ahmadinejad told a news conference. Ahmadinejad said the world was in need of a just system of rule that "puts an end to oppression, occupation and humiliation of people." [and from another] This correlates with what the Zetas said about the 8 of 10, "These sociological and political dramas are part of the 8 of 10 scenarios, as well as geological and astronomical features. This is the next chapter." http://poleshift.ning.com/profiles/blogs/zetatalk-fame The Zetas did say that Ahmadinejad is STO . Did he got his information from reading ZT or is there more too it?


Ahmadinejad is speaking as a leader of a Muslim country, viewing the Arab Spring as an uprising against colonialism, imperialism, and western corporate influence. This stance is expected of him because of his political role in Iran. The article makes much of Ahmadinejad's criticism of Gaddafi and his brutal treatment of his people. This is to differentiate between an Arab leader who was considered a puppet, as was Mubarak, and Gaddafi who was considered a leader who resisted western influence and control and thus should be a brother to his people. Does Ahmadinejad read ZetaTalk and have an inside track on the Transformation, the pending 8 of 10 scenarios? Yes on both fronts, as despite disbelief that Ahmadinejad is a Service-to-Other individual, he is a sleeper like Obama, awaiting his opportunities to make a difference in the world. He gives a hint as to the sequence of revolt and discontent - from the Arab Spring to Asia, then Africa, then Europe and thence to N America.

More than 150 million workers’ in India strike over economic reforms

Millions of workers across India went on strike on Wednesday in protest at Narendra Modi’s economic policies.

It was the biggest show of strength by trade unions since the right-wing prime minister took office.

They say labour law reforms planned by Mr Modi’s government will put jobs at risk, and are demanding it scrap changes that would make it easier to lay off workers and shut down unproductive factories.

The secretary of All India Trade Union Congress, Gurudas Dasgupta, said the response had been “magnificent” and estimated over 150 million workers participated in the strike.

The numbers could not be independently confirmed.

The strike – the biggest in India for more than two years – included staff at state-run banks and mines as well as factory, construction and transport workers.

“This strike is a reminder to the government that it must consult the millions of employee [affected] before changing the labour laws,” striking bank worker Amit Khanna said in New Delhi.

Most cities remained peaceful, but clashes between police and activists broke out in the eastern state of West Bengal, which has a long history of union activism.

Television footage showed police baton-charge protesters in state capital Kolkata and drag away women who had staged a sit-in, while protesters threw stones and smashed vehicles.

Banks, shops and other businesses remained closed in the city, stranding commuters and travellers at the main station, while dozens of flag-waving protesters halted suburban trains.

In New Delhi, long queues formed at bus stops on Wednesday, while passengers were stranded at airports as taxis and rickshaws stayed off the streets.

Some protesters forced autorickshaw and taxi drivers off the roads and vandalised their vehicles.

“I told them [protesters] that I am going to the hospital, but these people said ‘there’s a strike today’ and beat me up,” an autorickshaw driver in New Delhi told TV reporters as he stood in front of his damaged yellow and green vehicle.

Mr Modi has promised business-friendly reforms to attract foreign investment and revive Asia’s third-largest economy.

His government wants to simplify India’s myriad of sometimes archaic labour laws, which date back to the British Raj, and create a single code for industry.

Businesses argue that conforming to India’s 44 national and more than 150 state labour laws is not only costly and time-consuming, but has also deterred foreign investors.

The government’s proposals would make it easier for firms with 300 or more workers to fire employees and make it more difficult to create new unions.

Although trade unions agree reforms are overdue, they oppose the bills, saying saying they would leave workers with less job security while the level of legal protection on pay and other conditions would be reduced.

The bills have also come up against opposition in the upper house of parliament where the government does not have a majority.

The unions went ahead with the 24-hour strike after talks with finance minister Arun Jaitley broke down.

Last month they demanded the government improve social security measures and set a national minimum wage of 15,000 rupees (Dh830), up from current state set standards that range from 5,000 to 9,000 rupees.

Those demands are supported by hawkers, domestic workers and daily wage labourers who also joined Wednesday’s strike.

India’s economy grew by a slower than expected 7 per cent in the first quarter of the financial year and experts say reforms are needed to create jobs for millions of young people.

Previous strikes have shut down cities and cost the Indian economy millions of dollars in lost production.

Tear gas, water cannon, ‘gunfire heard’ in Lebanese capital Beirut on day 2 of clashes

Protests about a waste collection crisis in the Lebanese capital, Beirut, have ended up calling for the government to resign and gone into the second day after police used teargas and water cannon against demonstrators on Saturday night.

The clashes between police and protesters continued in Beirut on Sunday evening as 10,000 people gathered on Beirut's Riad al-Solh Square near the government’s Grand Serail palace.

The rally started peacefully, but then a group of aggressive youths attempted to remove the barbed wire which circled the square, TASS reported.

Police responded by using water cannon and tear gas, forcing the demonstrators to retreat from the area near the palace.

A witness told Reuters that gunfire was heard as security forces fired in the air in an effort to drive protesters away from government offices.

The protesters kept throwing stones and bottles at the police, who remained behind protective barriers and did not engage the crowd.

On Sunday, thousands of people gathered near the government headquarters in Beirut chanting anti-government slogans and calling for a larger protest later on the day.

The police again used teargas and water cannon against the crowd, with protesters responding by throwing rocks at the officers.

People in the town of Dahr el Baidar have blocked the main road leading from Beirut to Damascus, with cars only moving in the direction of the Lebanese capital, NNA agency reported.

There were also reports of people taking to the streets in the towns of Tripoli, Nabatieh and elsewhere in the country.

Earlier, the Lebanese Prime Minister, Tammam Salam, described force used against protesters as “excessive” and promised that those responsible would be held to account.

“I warn that we are going towards collapse if matters continue. Frankly, I have not and will not be a partner in this collapse. Let all officials and political forces bear their responsibilities,” Salam said in a televised address Sunday.

The police used water cannon and tear gas to disperse the rally on Saturday. At least 100 people, both police officers and protesters, were injured in the clashes, according to AP.

People in Beirut took to the streets after piles of rubbish began to appear on the streets of the Lebanese capital.

Beirut's main landfill was closed about a month ago and the authorities have yet to decide how to replace it.

Amid the unrest, some were shouting slogans used during the Arab Spring protests like “The people want to topple the regime!”

RT contacted one of the organizers of the rally, who said that the protest was initially peaceful, not calling for a violent change of power.

“We were very peaceful protesters. We were just demanding the resignation of the minister of environment,” the activist, who opted not to disclose his name, said.

He described the response to the protest by the police as “brutal,” saying that the “the army beat us… brutally with tear gas and with bullets – with real bullets.”

“Now we’re demanding the resignation of the whole government, immediately,” the activist said, adding that the parliamentary election must be announced “as soon as possible” in the country.

The political balance in Lebanon is extremely fragile due to legislators having been unable to pick a new president for more than a year.

The principle of ‘confessional distribution’ of parliamentary seats leaves governing divided among 18 religious groups.

Regional threats, like the war in neighboring Syria and the growing influence of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), are adding fuel to the instability in Lebanon.

The editor of the Pan-African News Wire, Abayomi Azikiwe, told RT that the situation could easily get worse, affecting Lebanon and adding even more tension to the region.

“There’s a political vacuum inside the country. The presidency has been vacant now for over a year. They had the same government since 2009. There was supposed to be an election in 2014, however, because of the political division inside the country the election has been postponed for another two years,” he said.

According to Azikiwe, the deadlock in the Lebanese power is caused by the ongoing civil war in Syria.

“You have political parties on Lebanon, who support the opposition in Syria, and the other political parties, who support the Syrian government in Damascus,” he explained.

“It may appear to be a domestic situation but it can easily deteriorate into a clash that may not necessarily be controllable by the existing government and security forces inside the country.”

Europe migrant crisis: Surge in numbers at EU border

The number of migrants at the EU's borders reached a record high of 107,500 in July, officials say, as a sharp surge in expected asylum requests was reported in Germany.

Germany has seen a wave of migration from Syria and the Balkans, and now says it could receive as many as 750,000 asylum seekers this year.

The EU has been struggling to cope with migrant arrivals in recent months.

France and the UK say they will sign a deal to tackle the crisis in Calais.

Over the summer, thousands of migrants have sought to get to the UK through the Channel Tunnel from makeshift camps around the northern French city.

France's Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve and his British counterpart, Theresa May, say they will sign a deal there on Thursday to strengthen their countries' co-operation on security, the fight against criminal smugglers, human traffickers, and clandestine immigration.

In early August, the UK pledged to add €10m (£7m) to a fund established in September 2014 to secure the port of Calais, and initially endowed with €15m over three years.

EU border agency Frontex said the number of migrants surpassed the 100,000 mark in a single month for the first time since it had begun keeping records in 2008.

The Warsaw-based agency said in a statement that the figure of 107,500 migrants for July was the "third consecutive monthly record, jumping well past the previous high of more than 70,000 reached in June".

The German government had earlier forecast that 450,000 asylum seekers could arrive in 2015, but is now set to increase that to 650,000 or higher.

UN High Commissioner for Refugees Antonio Guterres said more countries in Europe should share the burden.

"It is unsustainable in the long run that only two EU countries, Germany and Sweden, take in the majority of refugees," he told German daily Die Welt.

Hungary's southern border marks the edge of the EU's Schengen zone of passport-free travel and is thus a target for migrants seeking to enter the EU.

Its government has said it will send thousands of police officers to its southern ... with Serbia in its latest step to stem the flow of migrants.


Helping the refugees - by Jenny Hill, BBC Berlin correspondent

Young boy at Berlin reception centre

Squatting on a kerb, Barakat smiles as a volunteer hands his young son and daughter some second-hand clothes.

The family are Yazidis and fled Iraq. "They were killing all the women - what were we supposed to do?"

Nearby, hundreds of people queue outside a grey concrete building. Every so often an official comes out and shouts instructions through a megaphone.

This is Berlin's reception centre, where refugees come to register for housing and benefits. But it is volunteers who provide food, water, clothing and medical help. A doctor holds a makeshift surgery in a tent.

"It shouldn't be volunteers doing this," he says. "But the authorities never expected this many people to arrive so suddenly."

As I leave, I pass an old lady slowly pushing a trolley towards the centre. "I've come to donate clothes," she tells me. "Why wouldn't you help these people?"


More than 240,000 migrants have crossed the Mediterranean already this year, arriving on the shores of Greece and Italy before travelling on to other destinations.

In the past week alone, 21,000 migrants have arrived in Greece, according to the UN.

Germany's latest projected figures were due to be confirmed by Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere on Wednesday and Handelsblatt reported that the number of refugees seeking accommodation around the country was surging.

Last month alone, 5,700 people applied for asylum in the northern city of Hamburg and 7,065 in the south-western state of Baden-Wuerttemberg.

"I would have to build a block of flats every day to accommodate them", Stuttgart Integration Minister Bilkay Oeney told Handelsblatt.

The numbers are far higher than the record 438,000 asylum applications in 1992 during the Bosnian crisis.

German towns have been housing refugees in tent cities and converted gyms, but as tensions increase, there has been a rise in attacks on asylum seekers.

In the east, thousands of people have marched in towns and cities in protest at asylum seekers being housed in their areas and against what they call the "Islamisation of the West".

Last month, EU member states agreed to take in 32,000 asylum seekers arriving in Italy and Greece over the next two years - fewer than the 40,000 target.

The UK is exempt from the agreement.

Still thinking of heading to France for your holiday? Horrendous traffic jams, run the gauntlet of migrants, road blockades, wildfires at campsites… and now farmers are spraying manure over cars 

  • 10,000 holidaymakers were forced to flee as wildfires tore through bone-dry forests in the southern Var region
  • More fires broke out yesterday west of Bordeaux, threatening 1,000 houses, thanks to soaring summer temperatures
  • In the north 5,000 migrants are camping at Calais and invading the Channel Tunnel on a nightly basis to reach UK
  • An estimated 2,000 people invaded the tunnel last night, said operator Eurotunnel, as two more today hit by trains
  • Meanwhile in the east farmers are spraying unsuspecting cars with manure, closing highways in food-price protest

Thousands of British holidaymakers have been caught up in a summer of chaos in France, running the gauntlet of migrants, road blockades and wildfires at campsites.

And as if that wasn’t enough, farmers have now begun spraying manure over cars in protest at falling food prices.

More than 2,000 migrants tried to force their way into the Channel Tunnel overnight, according to operator Eurotunnel, as more than 5,000 people camp out around Calais waiting for an opportunity to enter the UK.

Chaos in France: Farmers have launched a protest in the east of France, spraying unsuspecting cars with waves of manure and forcing the closure of the A31 highway due to falling food prices

‘It was the biggest incursion effort in the past month and a half,’ said the spokesman for Eurotunnel, which is battling often deadly efforts to smuggle themselves into Britain.

‘All our security personnel, that is nearly 200 people as well as police were called in.’

The migrants tried to enter the site between midnight and 6am.

Tourists faced serious delays throughout much of today following the incursion attempt, with passengers held up for around an hour on the British side and 30 minutes on the French side.

Local authorities were unable to say whether any of the migrants were hurt in the attempt, although a French police source denied that there were as many as 2,000 involved.

Since the beginning of June, eight migrants have died trying to enter the tunnel. 

Two migrants are in hospital this evening in Calais after being hit by high-speed trains as they tried to enter Britain through the Channel Tunnel today.

Seven others were saved from drowning at around the same time after falling into a concrete water collection basin near the Tunnel entrance.

Reports of their perilous attempts came as holidaymakers faced travel misery yet again today after the latest migrant chaos triggered huge delays on the Eurotunnel, with estimates putting waiting times at an hour in both directions.

Operation Stack – which saw the closure of Junctions 8 to 11 of the M20 motorway – ended on Sunday, but queues have been extremely slow to start moving again.

But when they finally enter France, things only seem to get worse for Britain’s holidaymakers.

'The message of the day for either side has been lost' Police condemn BOTH anti-racism activists and far right protesters after clashes force Melbourne CBD into lockdown 

  • Anti-racism protesters clashed with anti-immigration groups outside Melbourne's Parliament House 
  • Protesters from 'No Room for Racism' will meet members of Reclaim Australia and the United Patriots Front
  • Tensions started to bubble after threats were made on social media warning that 'blood will be spilt'
  • Police were forced to spray the angry crowds in pepper spray in a bid to take control of the chaotic rally
  • One man was arrested for assault, while three others were detained for participating in riotous behaviou

The dramatic events were sparked by a rally held outside Parliament House by a pair of anti-Muslim groups, Reclaim Australia and United Patriots Front.

Groups opposing the 'racist' event, Rally Against Racism and United Against Islamophobia, flooded the area and attempted to confront people at the planned event.

Dramatic pictures taken during the violent clashes show a number of protesters with bloodshot eyes desperately having milk poured on their faces after being pepper sprayed by police officers trying to control the crowds. 

Other photographs show a number of people with their faces covered by masks, scarves or jumpers carrying signs and flags, marching through the streets and confronting police.

Despite the response from officers appearing extreme, Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Stephen Leane said it was necessary to cope with the protests.

'[Police] were at significant threat of having their lines over run and it was a tool we had to use at the time,' he said, according to the ABC.

Victoria Police Assistant Commissioner Stephen Leane said that while the use of pepper spray may appear extreme, it was completely justified as violence continued to escalate

Tens of thousands march in London against coalition's austerity measures, UK

An estimated 50,000 people in London addressed by speakers, including Russell Brand, after People's Assembly march


Tens of thousands of people marched through central London on Saturday afternoon in protest at austerity measures introduced by the coalition government. The demonstrators gathered before the Houses of Parliament, where they were addressed by speakers, including comedians Russell Brand and Mark Steel.

An estimated 50,000 people marched from the BBC's New Broadcasting House in central London to Westminster.

"The people of this building [the House of Commons] generally speaking do not represent us, they represent their friends in big business. It's time for us to take back our power," said Brand.

"This will be a peaceful, effortless, joyful revolution and I'm very grateful to be involved in the People's Assembly."

"Power isn't there, it is here, within us," he added. "The revolution that's required isn't a revolution of radical ideas, but the implementation of ideas we already have."

A spokesman for the People's Assembly, which organised the march, said the turnout was "testament to the level of anger there is at the moment".

He said that Saturday's action was "just the start", with a second march planned for October in conjunction with the Trades Union Congress, as well as strike action expected next month.

People's Assembly spokesman Clare Solomon said: "It is essential for the welfare of millions of people that we stop austerity and halt this coalition government dead in its tracks before it does lasting damage to people's lives and our public services."

Sam Fairburn, the group's national secretary, added: "Cuts are killing people and destroying cherished public services which have served generations."

Activists from the Stop The War Coalition and CND also joined the demonstration.

The crowds heard speeches at Parliament Square from People's Assembly supporters, including Caroline Lucas MP and journalist Owen Jones. Addressing the marchers, Jones said: "Who is really responsible for the mess this country is in? Is it the Polish fruit pickers or the Nigerian nurses? Or is it the bankers who plunged it into economic disaster – or the tax avoiders? It is selective anger."

He added: "The Conservatives are using the crisis to push policies they have always supported. For example, the sell-off of the NHS. They have built a country in which most people who are in poverty are also in work."

The People's Assembly was set up with an open letter to the Guardian in February 2013. Signatories to letter included Tony Benn, who died in March this year, journalist John Pilger and filmmaker Ken Loach.

In the letter, they wrote: "This is a call to all those millions of people in Britain who face an impoverished and uncertain year as their wages, jobs, conditions and welfare provision come under renewed attack by the government.

"The assembly will provide a national forum for anti-austerity views which, while increasingly popular, are barely represented in parliament."

The Metropolitan police refused to provide an estimate. A police spokesman said the force had received no reports of arrests.

EU preparing for 'state of emergency' after Greek talks collapse

Germany's EU commissioner said on Monday it was time to prepare for a "state of emergency" after talks collapsed at the weekend to rescue Greece from default and ejection from the euro.

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras ignored a litany of pleas from European leaders to act fast and instead blamed creditors for the collapse in aid-for-austerity talks, the biggest setback yet in long-running talks to secure more aid for Greece.

Athens now has just two weeks to find a way out of the impasse before it faces a 1.6 billion euro bill due to the International Monetary Fund, potentially leaving it out of cash, unable to borrow and cast out of the single currency.

While there was little sign of open panic in Athens as Greeks held out hope for a last-minute solution - a familiar theme over the past six years as Athens lurched from one crisis to the next - the latest impasse triggered a selloff in European and Asian shares and weighed on the euro.
