Accusations: Despite the mockery of the film Borat, leaked U.S. cables suggest the country was undemocratic and used torture in detention

Other dignitaries at the meeting included former Italian Prime Minister and ex-EU Commission President

Romano Prodi. Mr Mittal’s employees in Kazakhstan have accused him of ‘slave labour’ conditions after a series of coal mining accidents between 2004 and 2007 which led to 91 deaths.

[…]

Last week a senior adviser to the Kazakh president said that Mr Blair had opened an office in the capital.Presidential adviser Yermukhamet Yertysbayev said: ‘A large working group is here and, to my knowledge, it has already opened Tony Blair’s permanent office in Astana.’

It was reported last week that Mr Blair had secured an £8 million deal to clean up the image of Kazakhstan.

[…]

Mr Blair also visited Kazakhstan in 2008, and in 2003 Lord Levy went there to help UK firms win contracts.

Max Keiser talks to investigative journalist and author, Leah McGrath Goodman about her being banned from the UK for reporting on the Jersey sex and murder scandal. They discuss the $5 billion per square mile in laundered money that means Jersey rises, while Switzerland sinks.

And as well as protecting the guilty child sex/torturers/murderers of the island of Jersey I believe that they are also protecting the tax dodgers from any association.. its just good PR!

FORMER Prime Minister Tony Blair was reportedly involved in helping to keep alive the world’s biggest takeover by Jersey-incorporated commodities trader Glencore of mining company Xstrata.

11/September/2012

[…]

Mr Blair was said to have attended a meeting at Claridge’s Hotel in London towards the end of last week which led to the Qatari Sovereign wealth fund supporting a final revised bid from Glencore for its shareholding.

Qatar Holding used its blocking stake to derail the original merger but is reported to have agreed that Glencore’s increased £34.66 billion offer was high enough.

Glencore International plc was incorporated in Jersey last year and its registered office is that of Computershare plc in Hilgrove Streeet.

Its shares were listed in both London and Hong Kong and the business was valued at about US$60 billion in April last year.

The thorny issue of radioactive food, the cover up and the money

I have looked briefly at the issue of contaminated food from Japan making its way onto the worlds dinner tables via NAFTA and the WTO. And projections by the IAEA see Belarus soil remediation cleaning the soil over the next 30 years. the plants and animals that are doing the “cleaning” are then processed with the contaminated food being mixed with “clean” food. Also tobacco is a good isotope collector and this tobacco is sold to the worlds smokers. Surely this makes the western studies on smoking and cancer (studies that are supported by the big tobacco corporations) a manipulated farce!i looked at the levels of isotopes allowed and other chemical etc pollutants allowable to the WTO. They are far above the present Japanese official levels.

Of course behind this is are the big corporations and the money. These contaminated lands are ripe for profit making supported by the local dictators. And the corporations need Japan to become rrepressive dictatorship now too! Or the truth of the devastation that nuclear accidents, testing and use of depleted uranium munitions would get out to the public.

Following the money and the corporations involved we find the Qatari and Saudi Arabian links and links to big financial deals for commodities. At the head of this charge for commodities by the worlds corporations we find Tony Blair with a small office in Kazahkstan and a good friend of the local government and therefore a friend of Russia.

Tony Blair also supported Putins drive for Russia to be accepted into the World Trade Organisation and for Russia to be able to sell produce on the open market. Putin has a trade compact with Kazahkstan and Belarus. Belarus sells 80 percent of its agricultural/dairy produce to Russia who can now reprocess it and place it onto the western markets as japan does through NAFTA.

Of course these huge financial transactions need a base and that would be Jersey (the tax haven near France). So, does Tony Blair have an off shore account in Jersey? Just a thought.

With these multi billion pound deals running through the little island its no wonder that  the investigation of the children being brutally raped, tortured and murdered with the possible consent of local government and police forces, social services in Jersey might be covered up.

The same commodity corporations are slow killing

1 million children in Belarus and Ukraine (est)

500,000 children in Kazahkstan

350,000 to 500,000 children in Fukushima and Miyagi prefectures

Bhopal, Bikini Atoll and such “accidents” such as the thalidomide tragedy.

In fact, unknown numbers of children worldwide

Japan’s government stops the “bad news” from Fukushima

“Now the Japanese government has moved to crack down on independent reportage and criticism of the government’s policies in the wake of the disaster by deciding what citizens may or may not talk about in public.

 Global Food Safety And Technology

But what does it say that the number one country for food safety has had 30 food related recalls announced by the Food and Drug Administration in August (2012) alone?And what can technology do to help protect the food supply?

[…]

And it is worth noting that Tony Blair is pro nuke and has likely been helping the Rosatom deal to build a nuclear reactor in a country that is still emitting isotopes from underground testing sites that continually top up the environmental contamination even with agricultural radiation remedial processes. If Kazakhstan has nuclear reactors it will be able to cover up this ongoing releases of radiation by blaming it on normal releases from Nuclear power plants. The same is true of Belarus that also wants nuclear. Both these countries have Depleted uranium stocks and Belarus is the biggest arms dealer to anyone with money.. ie CIA – SYRIA- REBELS- WEAPONS-BELARUS-TURKEY. If you see my meaning. Likely Belarus has sold most of its depleted uranium munitions maybe? Thinking IRAN buying from the same place as the Syrian Rebels

A video here on Belarussian arms deal information, basically the region is the “wild west” with Tony Blair, Russian intelligence and the CIA riding side by side.. which is Tonto?

Is Russia using Belarus as a proxy agent to sell weapons to regimes like Iran or North Korea? Reports are emerging which paint a disturbing picture.

And oddly enough we see Belarus buying mining rights in Ecuador and a “representative” of wikileaks giving information to the Belarus dictactorship using the released cables to round up all the dissidents. And a possible smear campaign by the usa/cia to secure arms for the rebels in Syria, smear Julian Assange in Ecuador and secure mining rights in South America for the Russians. The Russians have a trade pack with Kazahkstan that ensures the Belarus market is accesable to the western corporations that are already imbedded in Kazahkstan. Via Tony Blair and friends.

And the Tax free haven of choice is the island of Jersey, famous for its Jersey cows (high in radioactive Pb lead 210 courtesy of La Hague nuclear reprocessing)

Julian Assange, Ecuador, and the Belarus connection

08 Sep 2012

[…]

In unrest following the evidently stolen elections of December 2010, strongman Lukashenko (ruling since 1994) had over 600 protesters and dissidents rounded up. Some were tortured, and the campaign to win their release brought courageous “silent protesters” repeatedly to the streets. The affair won Belarus the opprobrium of the UN Human Rights Commissioner, EU, US State Department and global rights groups, but (happily for Lukashenko) few international headlines.

Last year, the free-press advocacy group Index on Censorship cited evidence that WikiLeaks’ “accredited” representative in Belarus, Israel Shamir, may have provided the Lukashenko regime with intelligence from US diplomatic cables to help determine who to round up. Lukashenko boasted in the state-controlled media of receiving WikiLeaks intelligence that revealed who was “working behind the scenes” in the December protests. Shamir was meanwhile boasting claims on CounterPunch website that WikiLeaks cables provided “proof positive” the protests were “orchestrated” by the State Department. (The “proof positive” consisted of some indications of a US AID contractor’s involvement in money smuggling.)

Did Shamir turn over WikiLeaks cables to Lukashenko that “named names” of activists identified or cultivated by the State Department? Index on Censorship queried WikiLeaks on the issue, submitting a list of questions about what material WikiLeaks or Shamir may have provided the Lukasheno regime, and Shamir’s official status in the WikiLeaks organisation. One WikiLeaks representative responded tersely: “We have no further reports on this ‘rumour/issue’.” Another told Index: “Obviously it is not approved.”

Adding to the controversy, Israel Shamir is a notorious and obsessive Anti-Semite. The charge of anti-Semitism is of course often used unfairly against critics of Israel – but even Palestine solidarity activists have issued denouncements of Shamir, warning that association with him could hurt the movement. Shamir’s website avidly promotes Holocaust revisionists, and runs such non-ironic headlines as “Down With Human Rights” and “In Defense of Prejudice” – this in response to protests of Shamir’s references to war-mongering “Jewish media-lords”. Lukashenko, perhaps not coincidentally, has also used ugly Jew-baiting rhetoric against the opposition movement..

[…]

But with Lukashenko’s boasts (and Shamir’s clear enthusiasm for Lukashenko) the Belarus case may go beyond mere WikiLeaks “blowback” to active collaboration with repression. The lack of concern with this question by WikiLeaks’ advocates on the left raises questions about a single-standard commitment to human rights.

Meanwhile back in Ecuador, the country’s indigenous movement – which accuses Rafael Correa of wantonly opening lands to oil and mineral interests even while assuming a populist posture-saw an element of hypocrisy in the granting of asylum to Assange. “Democracy should begin at home and cannot be reduced to a discourse for the juncture,” said Gerardo Jumí Tapias, leader of the Andean Coordinator of Indigenous Organisations (CAOI), adding that protection of free expression should apply to all citizens, not just a high-profile foreigner.

to summarise, the connections between Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan and large western commodity seeking corporations, with the intrigues of war and politics and the complicity of the Main stream media, leaves us to one simple conclusion. The large corporations are carving up the planet using a variety of financial and industrial vehicles. And war is a “vehicle” for this too! And the whole thing is done off the books in a tax haven that even sex crimes against children need to be censored!, so as to not draw attention to the tax dodging of the rich and famous. They need to bury the money until they can start buying again. Meanwhile we sit in a depression caused by the withholding of this money and don’t benefit from the taxable savings that could help the citizens during this time of hardship. We are being fed contaminated food and charged for the treatments to cure the resulting illness. And Max Kaiser covers the banks better than I can but the corporations are immune to this tragedy and are psychopathic to allow the suffering of little children around the world for profit.

Oh and if you think that the west was really outraged by the rounding up and torturing of the Belarus dissidents, well , it really doesn’t matter as shown by the next 2 links. more resources linking Blairs commodity corporations are below them.

More than 20 journalists were arrested and many beaten after covering demonstrations in Minsk to protest against the presidential vote, which demonstrators claim was flawed. Over the New Year holidays, police raided the homes of numerous journalists, detaining suspects and seizing computers and other equipment.

Journalists arrested include Irina Khalip and Natalya Radina, who have been indicted on charges of organising and participating in mass disorder ­ charges which respectively carry prison terms of up to 15 and eight years.

Khalip, a local correspondent for the Moscow-based independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta, was beaten and forcibly taken by riot police while on the air with the independent Russian radio station Ekho Moskvy. Radina, editor of Charter 97, was beaten and detained when special forces stormed the website’s offices and took her and the three volunteers staffing the newsroom.

Joining the football family

Best newcomer: Belarus president Alexander Lukashenko – in Uefa’s VIP box for the final as Ukraine’s guest, despite an EU travel ban. In March Lukashenko said allegations by Germany’s openly gay foreign minister that Belarus was a “corrupt dictatorship” were “hysterical … But I’d rather be a dictator than a gay.”

Runner-up

Michel Platini – launching his plan to spread Euro 2020 over “12 or 13 host cities, or maybe 24 or 32″. (April: Platini attacks Ukraine’s hoteliers for exploiting fans with high prices and making football financially inaccessible. “These people are bandits and crooks who just want money.”)

Tony Blair’s intervention has seen a new page turned in the saga of the mining and commodities giants

9/September/2012

[…]

On Thursday night in London, the former prime minister brought together Glasenberg and the oil-rich Qatari investors who had been ready to kill off his masterplan to merge his global commodity trading house with the mining giant Xstrata. That deal would create a group that is the world’s largest producer of zinc, controls just under a third of the coal used for power stations and trades wheat, sugar and oil in more than 40 countries, putting it at the centre of the global trade in vital commodities.

[…]

In May, Glencore was asked by non-governmental organisation Global Witness to explain alleged “potentially corrupt deals” in the Democratic Republic of Congo with partner Dan Gertler. In June, a Glencore subsidiary hit trouble when it was fined €500,000 by a Belgian court for bribing EU officials to obtain market-sensitive information.

Whatever Blair said to Glasenberg on Thursday night, it was enough to overcome the arch-trader’s refusal to budge on price. Even as the meeting to vote on the deal got under way at Glencore’s Swiss HQ in Zug on Friday, he shifted part of the way towards the Qataris’ demands. Now he’s offering 3.05 shares – but on condition he gets to be the boss.

Blair pledges Putin support on WTO

Published: Dec. 21, 2001 at 5:03 PM By SAJID RIZVI, United Press International

[…]

Blair spoke at a news conference he addressed alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin after the two leaders held talks at Blair’s country residence, Chequers.

Among landmark decisions announced after the first day of talks, Britain’s MI6 intelligence agency, the scourge of the Soviet KGB, offered to share anti-terrorism information with Russian counterparts.

Blair aides played down previous reservations on Russia’s conduct of the war in Chechnya and highlighted the shared goals of the two countries in combating mainly radical Muslim terrorism.

[…]

The organization expressed concern that the West was “turning a blind eye” to the situation in Chechnya in return for Putin’s support of the international coalition against terrorism.

Oil rich dictator of Kazakhstan recruits Tony Blair to help win Nobel peace prize

By Jason Lewis, Investigations Editor9:00PM BST 29 Oct 2011

[…]

The move will raise further questions about the activities of Mr Blair who since stepping down as Prime Minister has travelled the world mixing diplomatic missions and charitable works with secretive multi-million pound business deals.

Mr Blair claims he is not profiting from his links with Kazakhstan and until now his role, and the work of his former key Downing Street advisers, had been a mystery.

Both Mr Campbell and Mr Powell visited Astana, the nation’s newly built business and administrative capital, last March, weeks before the 71 year-old President was re-elected with 95 per cent of the vote amid accusations of “blatant ballot-box stuffing” from international observers.

[…]

The former Soviet state’s British Ambassador said “The former British Prime Minister acts as an adviser to the Government of Kazakhstan.”

[…]

He denied reports Mr Blair was being paid £13 million for his part in the project and that the deal had any connection to the Kazahk’s investment fund or its increased connections with Abu Dhabi.

Belarus Resumes Farming in Chernobyl Radiation Zone

By STEVEN LEE MYERS

Published: October 22, 2005

VIDUITSY, Belarus – The winter rye is already sprouting green in the undulating fields of the state cooperative farm here. The summer’s crop – rye, barley and rapeseed – amounted to 1,400 tons. Best of all, the farm’s director, Vladimir I. Pryzhenkov, said, none of it tested radioactive.

[…]

That is progress. The farm’s 4,000 acres are nestled among some of the most contaminated spots on earth, the poisoned legacy of the worst nuclear accident in history: the explosion at Chernobyl Reactor No. 4 on April 26, 1986.

Nearly a quarter of Belarus, including some of its prime farmland, remains radioactive to some degree. Mr. Pryzhenkov’s farm represents part of the government’s efforts to put the contaminated lands back to good use.

The farm, no longer known as the Karl Marx collective but still state-owned, reopened two years ago with the millions of dollars’ worth of harvesters, tractors and other equipment provided by President Aleksandr G. Lukashenko’s government.

A year before that the checkpoints that once restricted access to this region, 150 miles from Chernobyl, disappeared. Families began returning. Some had never left; all needed jobs.

Mr. Pryzhenkov, assigned here from another co-op in what he called “a promotion,” has also begun breeding horses and cattle for beef, though not for milk. Milk produced here would be far too dangerous for human consumption.
