THE TWEETS TELL THE REAL STORY
So why is this so? This group called the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) is running the conference. But who are they? Who does the IUCN answer to?
This Facebook post last night from our dear French friend Benji (who got deported from South Korea for his acts of non-violent resistance to the Navy base) shared the following info:
I think these tweets speak for themselves. It is evident that international corporate capital has captured the IUCN agenda and the limiting of true democracy and open debate is glaringly clear in the suppression of the voices of the Gangjeong villagers. There could never be a better example of local citizens acting to protect the sacredness of nature than on Jeju Island but the IUCN and their corporate funders know they have to block the international delegates access to these villagers for fear they will inspire others to stand against the corporate agenda of destruction of the natural world.
In item #3 above you see the words "invest in our natural wealth" - the corporations see nature as a commodity to make profit from. Nature has no value to them beyond money. This is a terminal illness which could kill us all if we allow these money changers to rule the roost.
May the Gangjeong villagers and their supporters rock the IUCN flim-flam show. Turn it upside down....speak for all of us please!
