Farmers Protest to Public Protests


It has been been more than 22 days, Indian Public along with farmers are protesting at all the borders of national capital New Delhi. Prior to this farmers have already been protesting in the states of Punjab, Haryana, parts of Uttar Pradesh from last 3 months against new farms bill 2020 introduced by Modi government during Covid lockdown.
Farmers are saying
1. Industrial houses – Adani & Ambani are backed by Modi government.
2. That’s the reason they had the knowledge of the details of the farm bills that it will legitimize Hoarding & from 2017 they are working and now they have already setup gigantic storage facilities in Haryana even before introductions of farm bills in 2020.
3. This bill do not guarantee the Minimum Selling Price #MSP of produce and farmers are asked directly to negotiate with corporates. Farmers says after gigantic hoarding at normal prices this corporates will not only BUY CHEAP by bargain with farmers much below MSP but will also SELL DEAR to the end consumers.
4. In the event of any disputes farmers will be at the mercy of SDM Senior District Megistrate, because as per farmers bill farmers cannot go to courts in disputes. Farmers are of impression when courts today are showing favouritism to government & corporates, which SDM position can give justice to poor farmers?
5. Why government has drafted this anti – farmers bill without consulting farmers (a main stakeholders in bill), opposition political parties, Joint Parliamentary committee (as bills has to be discussed in joint committee consisting of members of parliament of different political parties representing public).
6. Why this bill was in emergency passed by VOICE VOTES when due to Covid MPs from many other political parties were not present in the House ? What was the emergency??
7. How Central government can frame farms bill when it comes under jurisdiction of States?


Hence at the beginning farmers were protesting to guarantee MSP, to bring Courts in the event of disputes but as Central government stood hard & even used police force on peaceful protests, now farmers are demanding scrapping entire farmers bill.

Though after use of force by Modi government & after Global agitation in support of farmers, Modi government showed interest to support MSP & bring Courts jurisdiction but in vain because till date government have not drafted this assurance in the farms bills.
Therefore farmers are of stand that Modi government is not interested legally to draft the bills which it has assured in its interest letters hence its high time to rollback this Anti Farmers Bill.

Presently this matter have entered the Supreme Court of India & here its going to be discussed by the collective team of Jurists & senior politicos, Social Thinkers,, team is yet to be made.

But most sad part of this protests & chilly winters- have witnessed deaths of 22 lives till date.

We can say Governments are framed for the welfare of people but its dark side of governments when even life of people do not matter to this power hungry machines working 360* to benefit corporates.

Conclusion : We think Modi government won’t scrap farm bill 2020, nor it will be in a position to enforce it as best of the lawyers jurists are standing to debate in support of farmers in Supreme Court as well local, national, global voices are supporting public & farmers to scrap farm bill. Henceforth it will go in a deep fridge as of now in near future and may be Modi & team will use it to get votes by legalizing it as per farmers demand in 2024.
It’s been our notice from 2014 till date of this Modi government, it has crumbled the 11% Indian GDP Growth rate to 2%, now Negative thanks to Covid outcome.
Nationalistic idea of this government have also not won rationally as Indian neighbours China, Pakistan & non speakers as Nepal, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh are also showing thumbs down.
Banks, NBFCs, big corporates are going bankruptcy. Communal violence rising, trade & commerce shattered, though Kashmir made Union Territory but it is of no benefit in reviving national growth and terrorist activities have not fallen. Demonetization have not yield any repercussions on black money and corruption. GST Goods & Services Tax have adversely affected Small & Medium Enterprises. Highest numbers of financial frauds witnessed affecting billions of dollar loss to India fraudsters yet to be brought to justice nor it seems to be happening. The only music of crazy Nationalism, Hinduism is chanting by so called BJP IT Cell & mind washing general public having nationalistic ideas but not understanding deep dark politics which is only benefitting only 2 or few dear corporates. Hope public to come out of this hangover and see the real accident already happened after 2014.
May be slowly but 1 by 1 people who are directly affected are getting out of this hangover, better late than never.

Support for populist beliefs in Europe has fallen

The YouGov-Cambridge Globalism Project, a survey of about 26,000 people in 25 countries designed with the Guardian, showed a more or less steep decline in populist tendencies in 2020 in all eight of the European countries also surveyed last year.

Political scientists expressed surprise at the size of the fall but said since the main reasons for it were most likely related to the coronavirus pandemic, support for populist beliefs could recover as the focus of the crisis becomes more economic.

“You could think of the virus like a volcano,” Matthijs Rooduijn, a political sociologist University of Amsterdam

Jews Missing in Europe 6 out of 10 !

In last 50 years Jewish population declined over 60% in Europe. Only 0.1% of European population are Jews. It said 1.3 million Jews live in Europe in 2020, nearly 0.1 per cent of the continent’s population and two-thirds of these people live in the UK, Germany and only about 9 per cent of the total Jewish population globally resides in Europe, which was 90 per cent in the latter part of the 19th century but was of similar levels about 1,000 years ago,as per study by the London-based Institute for Jewish Policy Research. However, throughout history, the inherent weakness of a landless and powerless minority vis-a-vis territorially based societies and their constituted powers often put the Jewish people in a condition of dependency and instability, and translated into powerful ups and downs in the Jewish presence.”

The Holocaust under Hitler in the first half of the 20th century which led to killings of about 6 million Jews reduced Jews’ population to around 11 million, the study noted.

It said in the last decades of the 20th century, the “opening of the doors of the Soviet Union” led to over 1.8 million Jews leaving eastern Europe between 1969 and 2020, which ultimately caused “a drastic shift in the Jewish population’s centre of gravity from the east to the west of the continent”.

In 1880, 88 per cent of the world’s Jews resided in Europe. By 1945, this percentage had declined to 35 per cent and then to 26 per cent and 9 per cent in 1970 and 2020 respectively, the study said.”Jews have not only been an integral part of European history and culture but are actually one of its oldest and original component groups,” the report said, as quoted by The Guardian

State causing undue hardship for families

The process in Western Australia is opaque, confusing, and arbitrary. Western Australians who want to return home for compassionate family reasons and who are willing to abide by quarantine restrictions should not be blocked from doing so.” said Sophie McNeill, Australia researcher for Human Rights Watch.

Africa Contained Covid-19 !

Africa today is in a better position in containing SARS_CoV2 Coronavirus. There are few strong points that caused this to happen. Most important is 2013 Ebola fight which Africa fought, so Africa was easy to form a community environment in fighting Coronavirus threat. Next is still parts of Africa are fighting HIV, so systems are already in place. Also many researchers thanks the strong health Immunity of the People in African region – the cause of winning edge on virus.

Protests erupt as Australian women strip-searched at Qatar airport

The Australian government has registered “serious concerns” with the Qatari authorities over reports that several women onboard a Doha-Sydney flight were subjected to physical search after the body of a new-born was found abandoned at the airport.

On October 2, women onboard Flight QR908 from Doha to Sydney were asked to disembark and strip-searched in an ambulance on the tarmac of the Hamad International airport. The Qatari authorities reportedly carried out the physical inspection to check if they had given birth to the infant found abandoned at the airport.
fellow passenger onboard the flight told The Guardian that the women “were presented to a female doctor and they were basically strip searched and had to take everything downwards off, all their clothes, even their underwear.”

“And then the doctor would try to feel in the uterus and stomach area or lower abdomen to see whether they may have given birth recently. Someone had been told that a baby had been found in the toilet and they were trying to find out who the mother was,” he said.

The Australian government has registered “serious concerns” with the Qatari authorities over reports that several women onboard a Doha-Sydney flight were subjected to physical search after the body of a new-born was found abandoned at the airport.

On October 2, women onboard Flight QR908 from Doha to Sydney were asked to disembark and strip-searched in an ambulance on the tarmac of the Hamad International airport. The Qatari authorities reportedly carried out the physical inspection to check if they had given birth to the infant found abandoned at the airport.

A fellow passenger onboard the flight told The Guardian that the women “were presented to a female doctor and they were basically strip searched and had to take everything downwards off, all their clothes, even their underwear.”

“And then the doctor would try to feel in the uterus and stomach area or lower abdomen to see whether they may have given birth recently. Someone had been told that a baby had been found in the toilet and they were trying to find out who the mother was,” he said.

In a statement, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said it has formally registered serious concerns about the incident with Qatari authorities.

“The Australian government is aware of concerning reports regarding the treatment of female passengers, including Australian citizens, at Doha (Hamad) airport in Qatar,” a spokesman for DFAT told The Sydney Morning Herald.

Americans buying military gears

Since last year, online purchases have driven a 20-fold jump in sales of goods like the $220 CM-6M gas mask — resistant to bean-bag rounds — for Mira Safety of Austin, Texas.
A shift became apparent with this spring’s Black Lives Matter protests and bitterly resented pandemic lockdowns. Now the gear is everywhere, from camouflage-clad antifa supporters to right-wing extremists who appeared at Michigan’s capitol even after men were arrested in a plot to kidnap Governor Gretchen Whitmer.
It doesn’t matter who gets elected,” founder Roman Zrazhevskiy said of his new customers. “They think that no matter who wins, Biden or Trump, there are going to be people who are upset about the result.”
“It’s evidence of what many people have been expressing concern about for the last six months — the stress associated with the pandemic, a frustration or anger about various government mitigation efforts and a belief that those efforts are infringing on their individual liberties,” said Elizabeth Neumann, a former assistant secretary for threat prevention at the Department of Homeland Security.
We’ve seen a big uptick coming out of New York, New Jersey, Illinois — not just those states but Chicago, Manhattan, Queens and San Francisco,” he said. “We never did business with folks from San Francisco.”

His biggest seller is a $220 body-armor plate meant to withstand bullets fired from an AK-47.
Before the pandemic, 5.11 Tactical, based in Irvine, California, was opening two stores a month, drawing customers for “Always Be Ready” events akin to cooking demonstrations at Williams Sonoma. Amid racks of military-style boots, pants and vests, the classes taught self defense, trauma care and “everyday/concealed carry.”

Unexpectedly high consumer sales maintained growth during lockdowns, according to Compass Diversified Holdings Inc., a Westport, Connecticut-based company that owns 5.11 Tactical among a portfolio that also includes Ergobaby infant carriers.

Same-store sales including e-commerce rose 10.5% in the second quarter after 7.5% growth in the first quarter, Chief Operating Officer Pat Maciariello told analysts on a conference call in July.

Chinese coronavirus testing kits sent around the world are not working properly

The testing kits that were sent to the U.S. and 30 other countries by China aren’t working properly reported Centre for Disease Control U.S.

Prague Morning

Up to 80 percent of the 300,000 rapid coronavirus test kits ordered that the Czech Republic ordered from China are not working properly, according to regional hygienists who have tried the tests.

The test kits, worth 54 million korunas (€1.83 million), show false positive as well as negative results. This is because rapid tests cannot reliably detect infection in its initial phase.
The information came from hygienists from University Hospital Ostrava in the east of the country. Health officials thus labeled the rapid coronavirus tests as unreliable as they allegedly failed in 80 percent of cases. As an example, health experts described a case of a man who tested positive for coronavirus, but the following test showed that he was not infected.

The error rate is quite high, stated Pavla Svrčinová, a hygienist from the Ostrava region.
