Good morning. In the news this morning. . . . . . from the Guardian. I don't like the Guardian very much, same as I don't like The Sun or The Mirror, or any of them for that matter. I click on news items which might interest me wherever they might appear and whoever might have written them. All to be taken with a pinch of salt.
The headline, 'Catastrophic' : Sierra Leone sells Rain Forest for Chinese fish plant. A £39 million deal struck by the Government of Sierra Leone with China to build an industrial fishing harbour on 250 acres of beach and protected rainforest has been criticized as a catastrophic human and ecological disaster, by conservationists, land owners, and rights groups. I do despair. Once again it's about money. The richest are the enemy, they will not be happy until all the little people have been obliterated. Read the article here.
That article fits in very nicely with a documentary film I watched the other day. Thank you to the reader who sent me the link. I was not going to put this here, (there is a link in the Research page), but I have changed my mind after seeing that news article this morning.
This has to be the most depressing, heart breaking film I have ever seen. It needs to be shown world wide. Each and every one of us has to make changes or the world will not survive. The video was made a year ago, it was posted on yoootooob and was taken down hours later. The reason was that it contained four seconds of copyright material, which has been removed. That was an excuse of course. It has since been reinstated.
Please be aware that there is some very upsetting footage towards the end of the video. This has really affected me.
I will leave you to digest that if you are interested. If it is not your cup of tea, pop back at a later date when the subject matter will have changed.
Thank you for popping in. We'll catch up later. Toodle pip. ilona
