FISHINABOX water is life and so Life is water 水は命、命は水

Water is Life and so life is water was originally a project written in 2016 as part of the Earth Mother and Elements series. After four years of court case disruption , along with the tragic loss (rest in power) in the music collective of a further two members, the project was shelved, all music projects shelved ,before the collective split to go separate ways.

FISHINABOX is now working through the back catalog for release of all unfinished projects, the Earth Mother project is being rolled into the MG 269 event for a brand new FISHINABOX album release in 2021…

LET’S DO THIS !!!

FISHINABOX MG 269 Title track for the MG 269 EVENT

RBE thinking, Resource Based Economy thinking that is; is based around the management of need, based solely on smart and ethical management of available situational resources. The principles are a practical application of the free world charter, a how to live by charter.

This track features the late Michael Green and is the title track of the MG 269 event soundtrack

Lyrics:

Who actually gives a fuck about the waste of resources, and the way that the technology is being used to manipulate vast amounts of human beings into war, violence, into the belief that the way we live now is the way that it will always be.

If we use our technology and science, allied with nature for the benefit of all human beings, rather than the bottom line of the corporation, which is money, our behaviors would change.

The first thing that most of the activists involved with the zeitgeist movement and the Venus project would say is that it is about becoming better educated and learning about scientific application for the benefit of all human beings, I’m not a scientist, I don’t have to be a scientist, it’s about understanding the scientific method, it’s not about our ego, access to the basic necessities, without recourse to subservience, credit , debt, barter, or any other monetary form then our behaviors will change.

It is only this monetary system that is fueling war and rampant consumerism.

Fresco is one of those people that I have been made aware of in the more recent years of my life, Buckminster Fuller is one that I have come across, Nikolai Tesla and you know Peter Joseph behind the Zeitgeist movement, If we use our technology and science, allied with nature for the benefit of all human beings, rather than the bottom line of the corporation, which is money, our behaviors would change.

LYRICS:

There is a Way (to make this world a great place for all)

Financial troubles everywhere
give you no time to be aware
of what it is that causes it
and it all seems so legit
indoctrinations keep you caught
in a state of fearful thought
Money makes the world go round
It’s what keeps the food abound
keeps us clothed and in a home
without it, streets we’d have to roam
sleep on the pavement, starve to death
feel misery till our last breath
We bear the drudgery we hate
because we think that it’s our fate
We have to keep a job or two
enough banknotes will see us through
will pay the taxes and the bills
bliss awaits beyond the hills
make more money to get by
but guess what? It’s all a lie!

We could feed 12 billion souls
if markets didn’t block the flow
Money causes suffering
destroys your soul and everything
the planet is about to die
economic growth has to be high
exploitation is a must
if profits are not to go bust
What is the use if very soon
Earth will look like its own moon
your children will not have a future
just because your lifestyle suits ya
but look at it, does it make you happy?
Or do you feel stressed and rather crappy?
Our offspring raised by institutions
no time and strength for resolutions
families are ripped apart
and so is everybody’s heart
Suppressing who we really are
spreads depression near and far
You are a slave to this whole thing
full of worry and suffering
Half the world has it even worse
they always have an empty purse

But did you know, there’s a better way
where no one can be led astray
where everyone on planet Earth
lives healthy, happy right from birth
no stress, no force, no crime, no war
where all our spirits are free to soar
Technology will do the jobs
robots won’t turn into mobs
most work’s already automated
so why not call the rest outdated?
Let’s just end the reign of money
and we’re not trying to be funny
Without it we will all be wealthy
happy, free and very healthy
Follow our passions every day
with no pressure of earning pay
Saving the planet in the process
that is what is called REAL progress
All we need to set us free
is a Resource-Based Economy !

 

RBE thinking, Resource Based Economy thinking that is; is based around the management of need, based solely on smart and ethical management of available situational resources. The principles are a practical application of the free world charter, a how to live by charter.

Mary had a Little Lamb – 1816 racism 2016 speciesism – JUST SAY NO !!!!

Mary had a Little Lamb – 1816 racism 2016 speciesism – JUST SAY NO !

Violated rights – If you accept that animals have rights, raising and killing animals for food is morally wrong. An animal raised for food is being used by others rather than being respected for itself. In philosopher’s terms it is being treated as a means to human ends and not as an end in itself. This is a clear violation of the animal’s rights.

http://animalrightsacademy.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/Comparingracismandspeciesism.pdf

MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB
Mary had a little lamb, and she really didnt know,

that her cute and cuddly suckling friend was actually a dairy cow,

This made things difficult for farmer giles cuz the calf would have to go,

At 20 pints of milk a day, it would drink his profits low

To get the little lamb to slaughter was a tricky problem posed ,

as the loved and little lamb would go where mary goes

It followed her to school one day,

But was turned out by the door,

No animals at school they said the lamb was allowed no more,

It waited patiently in the yard , its fleece as white as snow,

Till farmer giles grabbed it there and quickly slit its throat,

Yea mary had a little lamb , oh yea oh yea,

Yes Mary had a little lamb until you slit its throat,

the studies hit the tabloid press in 2015 under headlines like”‘Cheese is from plants’ – “Shocking food survey reveals a fifth of UK children don’t know bacon comes from pigs..” and that more than a third of the youngsters surveyed have never heard actual real life cow or sheep noises points clearly to a worrying ignorance about where their meals come from”..

so that’s what this song is all about, yeah we coined the old rhyme “Mary had a little lamb ” and then banged on about dairy cows in the next breath as if one was the other, because people are so willfully ignorant that they simply do not get that meat and dairy are coming from living loving sentient beings,

that people are desensitised and so far so very very far removed from these animals to not even know what animal is slaughtered for, or is used to produce what product..

Stupidity is the fastest spreading disease on the planet and we have to work against it and limit it, expose the facts and help people remake the connections that the food industry marketing machine have wiped from the slate.

Look up the polls,. check it on line see how far gone society is,.how the normalisation of Ethical abuse is justified based on specicism.

a calf can be a lamb can be a puppy can by a boy can be a slave where profit is involved , the law that allows this speciest profiteering to exist and it is fundamentally wrong,

just as the white europeans classed black people as a different species under slavery and used this as the justification to subject them to a life of oppression and privation, , so it is happening with domesticated animals the world over.

For the last , and only the last 126 years, whether its peoples so called choice to eat steaks, or ice cream sodas, dog meat (now available and becoming common place in switzerland) or testing tobacco products on beagle puppies, or trapping and murdering majestic wolves for their hides to be crassly regurgitated as hood trims for some over priced canadian elitist brand machine, or whether it is burning out rabbits eyes for this years soap scent or opening monkeys heads for a look see because there brains are so much like ours and apparently warrant study , Its speciesism

 

What is speciesism?

speciesism
ˈspiːʃiːˌzɪz(ə)m,ˈspiːsiːˌzɪz(ə)m/
noun – the assumption of human superiority leading to the exploitation of animals. / a prejudice or bias in favour of the interests of members of one’s own species and against those of members of other species. (Peter Singer, Animal Liberation, 1975)

CITY SLICKERS – London White Collar Crime Scene – BANKING SCAM

anon web

Report after Report, post bailouts to the Banking Sector 2015 and 2016 have been a wash with scandals and cover up’s over Financial Services.

Investigations into critically weak financial controls in Drugs and Alcohol support Charities, British Banks handling vast sums of laundered Money, Drugs and Alcohol Testing on the rise in the workplace though apparantly not a workplace issue ?

Despite this, and the constant “disappearing” evidence of studies and results based statistics damning the white collar de-personalising automon office culture, the self seeking need for decadence clearly continues to reign supreme –  85% of workers admit to being drunk at work in the last year. 2,600 workers in offices were surveyed, and findings included:

28% admitted using drugs at work, including so-called ‘legal highs’, cannabis and other illegal narcotics
85% admit to being drunk at work in the last year, not including the Christmas party
31% admitted to being drunk at work, or having their capacity to work significantly diminished through alcohol, at least once per week

The White Collar world sees a “bit of blow” or a “chill pill” as little more than smoking a cigarette. While the rest of the Country is ruled by Austerity, the Financial Sector, the so called guardians of our treasury, future and economy are living it up and laughing it up in the most irresponsible way.

With responses like “it relieve’s the tensions of working all day,” while others blamed boredom, simply telling us that “It helps the day go faster.”

drink and drugs at work

In 2015 and then again 2016 we put a production album out highlighting the concerns being found by reporters and reporting on the ground. An ever accelerating culture of disconnection between personal and professional responsibility in the city square mile equal to the disproportionate class divide in our ever decaying money based society.

The Album City Slickers focused on a short set of investigations in to Drugs and Alcohol Abuse in and around Financial services and was put out for the Million Mask March anti-capitalist Protests of November 5th.

Needless to say restrictions on the “Dubstep Lorry” put out to broadcast the album around Trafalgar Square silenced the release so we put it out online on free stream for you here

When faced with the endless psychobabble on banking bailouts , austerity and the trickle down effect. Remember CITY SLICKERS. – “The endless austerity measures have made it worse for the country. It’s been the wrong remedy for the wrong patient at the wrong time.”

If you never really understood any of it but feel shortchanged at every level in society, here is a reminder on what was really actually going on:

https://www.jrf.org.uk/sites/default/files/jrf/migrated/files/185935212x.pdf

Time to stand up against the lies: Million Mask March 2017 ? Will we be seeing you ?

https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2017/aug/24/austerity-lie-deep-cuts-economy-portugal-socialist

EULOGY

Remember, remember! The fifth of November, The Gunpowder treason and plot; I know of no reason Why the Gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions Did the scheme contrive, To blow the King and Parliament All up alive. Threescore barrels, laid below, To prove old
England’s overthrow. But, by God’s providence, him they catch, With a dark lantern, lighting a match! A stick and a stake For King James’s sake!
If you won’t give me one, I’ll take two, The better for me, And the worse for you. A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope, A penn’orth of cheese to choke him,
A pint of beer to wash it down, And a jolly good fire to burn him. Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring! Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save
the King!

CITY SLICKERS /

CITY SLICKERS Guy Fawkes DUBSTEP Remix

focuses on the Gross misconduct of City Financial Sector Traders and Decision Makers and there scant disregard to corporate responsibility specifically with regard to social irresponsibility and drug and amphetamine use throughout the London City Square mile. Heavily inspired and influenced by Alan Moore’s V for Vendetta, the Four Horsemen, Guy Fawkes and the Anti Capitalist Movement. The Album challenges misconceptions and assumptions about anti social behaviour in City corporate Life and assumptions about the anti establishment protest.

The Taxes that have been masked/hidden away by effective “WEALTH MANAGEMENT” by Corporations and City Workers alike in the London City Square Mile Alone cover the entire UK “BENEFIT STREET” annual bill so why are the Media and political scaremongers focusing on the press on the endless immigration loafer headlines, migration of workers, the supposed work shy north, endless processed food diets from food banks and people on the dole with flat screen TV’s when the real criminals , jobs for the boys, and turning a blind eye to completely unacceptable anti-social behavior are laughing it up and living it up on tax breaks down south…

JOBS FOR THE BOYS

YAIE YAIE, Jobs for the boys, JJJJ Jobs for the boys, The taxes that have been hidden away by effeftive wealth management by city corporations
and the like for the London City square mile alone, cover the entire UK benefits street annual bill.

So why are the Media scaremongerers focusing on migration of workers, the supposed work shy north and people on teh dole when the real criminals
, jobs for the boys, are turning a blind eye to completly unacceptable, anti social behavior are laughing it up and living it up on tax breaks
down south

JJJJ JJJJ Jobs for the boys, JJJ Jobs for the boys, On an average of 1,500 staff randomly checked for Drugs, 41 were found to be users of cocaine, 124
synthetic drugs and 28 for cannabis and unclassified narcotics. JJJJ Jobs for the boys, JJJJ Jobs for the boys

City Workers out on the Town are also resorting to crack cocaine. It’s growth has been orchestrated by street dealers offering smaller clubbing rocks,
Across the City of London, the numbe of addicts seeking help with crack based addictions has climbed by 50% over the last year.

JJJJ Jobs for the boys, JJJJ Jobs for the boys, Across the City of London, the numbe of addicts seeking help with crack based addictions has climbed by
50% over the last year. A study by the Rowntree foundation found anecdotal evidence for an increase of Drug testing in some high profile firms.
Particularity in the Financial Sector where there are no obvious health or safety justifications. JJJJ Jobs for the boys, JJJJ Jobs for the boys,

People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, but also with a range of other behaviour because they don’t want to lose a key employee.
People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, but also with a range of other behaviour because they don’t want to lose a key employee.

Major banks and Financial firms are increasingly carrying out drug testing their employees in a bid to cut out abuse in city workers.

WHITE COLLAR CRIME SCENE – OVERDOSE MIX

City Slickers (GUY FAWKES REMIX) REMIXED !! People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol,
People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol, People turn a blind eye to Drugs and Alcohol,

MILLION MASK MARCH

Need a little help, a little help, Need a little help, a little help, Need a little help, a little help, Need a little help, a little help,

We all know why we are here today, to expose the dodgy delings by bankers and corrupt politicians and profittering corporate developpers
we are here in opposition to the bail outs to the financial sector whilst the worlds communities and common people have been left to pick
up the peices and pay the bill for licensed criminality and so will our childrne and thier generations to come.

Not only do western governments want us to pay for thier mistakes but they also want us to go about it quietly. Thats not going to happen,
w wil not go quietly, there’s no chance, not while millions stand still unemplyed, whilst people are losnig thier homes and there is no chance
we will stand by whilst the weak and infirm die waiting for hospital beds.

police static , .. have you seen anything..
Remember, remember! The fifth of November, The Gunpowder treason and plot; I know of no reason Why the Gunpowder treason Should ever be forgot!
Guy Fawkes and his companions Did the scheme contrive, To blow the King and Parliament All up alive. Threescore barrels, laid below, To prove old
England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow.
to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow.
to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow.
to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow.
to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow. to prove old England’s overthrow.

PILLAR OF CLOUDS اعمدة الغيوم Gaza Exposé E.P. ALBUM

PILLAR OF CLOUDS اعمدة الغيوم Gaza Exposé E.P.

PILLAR OF CLOUDS – GAZA Exposé E.P.

This Album project focuses on the Policy or Rocket attack responses into the Gaza Strip. Drawing its title for the 2012 campaign and following the attacks through to 2014 under Operation Protective edge.

The Album , in the context of highlighting real stories from the Strip, probes and questions the reasons for the rocket attack responses and looks at both Israeli and Gazan responses to the attacks. The Album though highlighting the plight of victims of war, is not a judgement over the campaign, judgement for or against is for listeners on the project to pass not FISHINABOX. The sold intention of the project is to raise pertinent questions over the “why” and document the effects of the campaign on real lives that has largely been ignored by mainstream media.

The Album has been the subject of some controversy over content and as such has had to meet some restrictions to satisfy all parties connected to, active in, and reporting on the crisis.

With all that in mind FISHINABOX have condensed and represented the various angles of the debate that are , in places unpopular and contested in the political arena, yet the information available to the listener looking to look further into the issue is fully available to the inquiring public online. We invite you to explore the stories and issues raised further.

No matter what designs are being perpetrated as “the good , the future of the strip”.
Lives are at stake and generations of innocent people are on the receiving end of the greater plan for the region. This is , at all levels, unacceptable.

Listen to the project, hear the arguments and engage in a simple ethical choice: “fight war NOT wars”.

How can there be peace when there is no respect for Human life, Israel , How can there be peace targeting with proportionality ? 1 rocket fired into Israel earns 100 hundred returned ?

كيف من الممكن ان يكون هناك سلام عندما لايوجد حُرمة لحياةِ الانسان, اسرائيل, كيف من الممكن ان يكون مقترناً مع هدف السلام ؟ صاروخ واحد يطلق نحو اسرائيل يستحق مئةً بالمقابل ؟

Why do you pull the whiskers of the cat Hamas, when your rockets are fired from trucks parked outside our schools and hospitals ?

لماذا تنزع شعيرات شارب القط حماس, عندما تُطلق صورايخك من شاحنات متوقفة خارج مدارسنا و مشافينا.

Mossad, shame on your “convenience” so “all seeing” yet unwilling to tell the difference between a fighter and a child.

أيها الموساد عار على ” راحة بالكم ” اذاً ” كل ما ترون ” الى الآن غير راغبين بالقول ما الفرق بين المقاتل والطفل .

When a hammer  (HALMUTH – jewish judges hammer) strikes on wood all nails will lift in defiance.

STORYBOARD:

الحرب الشاملة الاسرائيلية قد انطلقت البارحة ضد المدنيين الفلسطينين في غزة. الحرب قد اُعلنت من قبل اسرائيل كعملية عسكرية مُتحذةَ الاسم التوراتي ” عمود من الغيوم “. حتى الآن, 15 فلسطينياَ قتلوا منهم 8 مدنيين ضمنهم 5 اطفال, ثلاثة نساء و رجل مسن. الجيش الاسرائيلي قد اطلق 160 غارة جوية من الجو, الارض والقوات البحرية. ردت الفصائل المسلجة الفلسطينية على الهجمات الاسرائيلية المكثفة واللتي خلفت كذالك اصابات جسدية ل 100 فلسطيني. حالة الخوف والرعب انتشرت في غزة حيث اصابت الاطفال بالصدمات النفسية.

An Israeli full-scale war was launched yesterday against Palestinian civilians in Gaza. The war was announced by Israel to be as a military operation that took a biblical name “Pillar of the Clouds”.

العشرات من الاطفال الفلسطينين قد جُلِبوا الى المشافي في شمال وجنوب غزة. وأكد مراسل فلسطين تلغراف في غزة أن الإمدادات الغذائية أصبحت شحيحة في غزة. الناس في في خوف من هجوم بري مقرر. رانيا,22,قالت “نحن في خوف من القصف الاسرائيلي. ابن عمي قد قُتل محاولاَ الخروج ليشتري الخبز. غزة تبدو كمدينة اشباح.” كما شرحت ايضاَ كيف ان عائلتها في خوف شديد ورعب. مراكز الشرطة, المدارس,والمنازل قد دُمِرت بِفِعل القصف الاسرائيلي بطيارات اف 16 على قطاع غزة. في الوقت الحالي, أطلقت الفصائل الفلسطينية عشرات الصواريخ في عمل من أعمال الدفاع عن النفس كما يقصف اسرائيل بلدات ومدن غزة. القيادة الإسرائيلية تعهدت بمواصلة الهجمات على غزة حيث أُعطيت الضوء الأخضر من قبل الولايات المتحدة والاتحاد الأوروبي وحكومات أخرى. أعربت الحكومة البريطانية عن قلقها إزاء تصاعد الأحداث. كما حَمَلَت حماس المسؤولية عن الحرب الأخيرة. ومع ذلك، تسلسل الأحداث يشير إلى أن إسرائيل بدأت الحرب في وقت مبكر من 8 نوفمبر عندما قتلت طفلاَ فلسطينياَ لديه من العمر 11. أعلنت حكومة حماس في غزة أن رئيس الوزراء المصري، هشام قنديل،

Dozens of Palestinian children were brought to hospitals in north and south Gaza. Palestine

Police stations, schools and houses were destroyed in Israeli F16 bombings across the Gaza strip. For the meantime, Palestinian factions fired dozens of rockets in act of self-defence as Israel bombards Gaza towns and cities. Israeli leadership vows to continue the attacks against Gaza as the green light was given by the US, EU and other governments. British government expressed its concern about the escalated events. It also held Hamas responsible of the recent war. However, chronological order of the events indicates that Israel initiated the war as early as 8th of November when it killed a Palestinian child aged 11. Hamas government in Gaza announced that Egyptian prime minister, Hisham Qandil.

Take a few rockets in your back yard and see how you respond

The bombing campaign started in 2012 under the code name “עַמּוּד עָנָן “ literally “Pillar of Cloud” that set a precedent in rocket warfare response never before seen in military combat. The premise that for every one rocket falling into Israel, a response of 100 hundred rockets would be sent in return.

The Pillar of Clouds campaign was so named referencing the manifestation of the God of Israel in the Torah, the five books of Moses which appear at the beginning of the Old Testament Bible. According to “Exodus”, the Pillar of Cloud guided the Israelites by day during the Exodus from Eygpt. The Pillar of Cloud is traditionally paired with the divine presence by night as a Pillar of Fire which provided a guiding light.

The Pillar of Cloud defence has become a blueprint in the region and was applied again, to a lesser degree in 2014 under Operation Protective Edge. In the Gaza Strip the missile campaign left over 2,000 Gazans killed and an excess of 10,000 wounded including 3,300 children of whom 75% have been permanently disabled.

The Hamas missile campaign claimed 67 Israeli civilians of which 5 were children and 467 IDF members in the combat and missile fall out zone

The Gaza Health Ministry, UN and some Human Rights Groups reported that 75% of the Palestinian Casualties were civilians. Israeli officials estimated that around 50% of those killed were civilians. Israel creates a case for military response though do the ends justify the means ?

Well, the Shelter is so far sometimes we just stop at friends on the 2nd floor on the way down and stay there. Sometimes we catch them with curlers in their hair or in their dressing gowns.
Then we all sit around waiting for the “boom”,. did you hear the “boom” , i heard the “boom” ,. did you hear the “boom” ?

Ok a “boom”

I don’t really see why we even bother to try to get to the shelters, The Iron Dome knocks out nearly all the Hamas missiles anyway and the News reported one that got missed was batted out to sea by a gust of wind and exploded in the water.

You see we have the Hand of God, the Hand of God watching over us.

We make light of the problem. it is true but we are nervous, the Sirens ring in your ears for hours and when we hear that someone has lost an eye or be caught by some debris it worries us.

We don’t want to make light of the conflict itself, or of what we here about the real suffering, Yes Yes, it causes innocent civilians here and over the other side of the green line and frankly we would rather have nothing to do with it, to be left to live out our everyday lives , but when the sirens wail, when they see the “boom” then people, most of them, maybe all of them even, thank God for the Security Forces quick response to attacks and hope they will be ever watchful against these trigger happy fanatics.

Why a civilized country should have to be put under this stress ?

We have children here, school parties that have to wait and line up at the shelters. It is just not a good way of life for them to have to experience. really. what do you say ? you understand the problem ? hummm ?

قصة :01

 

Standing in the rubble of his parents’ house Zaki walks around the perimeter of what was once the living room. His search to bring the bodies together for proper burial is endless.

واقف زكي ع انقاض دارهم, يحوم باللي كان بيوم من الايام غرفة القعدة. ع طوال الوقت يدور على اشلاء الجثث حتى يجمعهم ببعض ويدفنهم

They have to be here somewhere. Every day. Working mostly alone, lifting a shredded mattresses, discarded clothing, a bicycle frame brick and concrete block by block .He worries because the attacked happened at night,. His family were not declared martyrs

لازم يكونو هون بشي مكان كل يوم. بيشتغل لحالو, بيرفع الفرش, الخرق واللباس الممزق, دولاب سيكل وطوب من السمنت طوبة ورا طوبة. كان قلقان لان الهجوم صار بالليل. بعد ماحكو انو اهلو اسشهدو

The Remains of 8 people , two small brothers, mother, grandparents, two sisters and the little niece. Zaki, is still searching for a head. So far he has found only 13 legs, with small and large feet. He hopes that if he can assemble the bodies and arrange for Kafan then they will accept for al-proper burial.

اشلاء 8 اشخاص, خوه التنين, امه, جدينوه, خواته التنتين و بنت اختوه . زكي لساه بيدور على راس. لهلق شاف بس 13 رجل, مع قدم صغيرة وكبيرة. املو انو يحسن يجمع الجثث ويحضر الكفن عشان يقدر يدفنهم بطريقة كويسة.

قصة:02

Grandfather keep a small Olive Grove , there was no wall as people like to shade themselves under the tree so he marked the boundary of the land with flower pots. Because sometimes lovers came secretly to the grove a gang of young teenagers used to smash the pots and hurl insults and Grandfather used to chase them from the grove with a stick.

الجد عندو بستان صغير من الزيتون, ماكان في سور, الناس تحب تتفيا تحت الشجر عشان هيك هوه حط حدود للارض من حواض الورد.لانو احيانا العشاق كانو يجو للبستان و شلة من الولاد تكسر هل الاحواض وترميها والجد كان عطول يلحقهم بالبستان وهو حامل عصايتو .

On the Friday when the rockets fell , Grandfather didn’t need to chase the boys from the Grove, nor the Saturday or the week after. Each day he would come out with stick ready until on hearing the news that the boys had been killed during the rocket strike, dropped sobbing to the ground letting the stick fall and holding his head in his hands cried out to God to restore them to life, that if they were restored he would let them come and smash the pots every day just for them to live again. The Olive grove was watered with tears that day.

يوم الجمعة وقت نزل الصاروخ, ماكان في داعي لحتى يلحق الجد الولاد بالبستان, ولاحتى يوم السبت او حتى بالاسبوع اللي بعدو. كل يوم كان بدو يطلع لبرا بعصايتو حتى سمع خبر انو الولاد انقتلو بالصاروخ, وقع ع الارض وهو عبيبكي ترك عصايتو تقع ع الارض وحط ايديه على راسو وصرخ يالله رجعهم احياء, اذا رجعو رح خليهم يجو ويكسرو احواض الورد كل يوم بس مشان يرجعو يعيشو من جديد. شجرة الزيتون انسقت بالدموع بهداك اليوم .

Rachel a 23 year old American activist, had gone out to Gaza to protest land reforms and fight against the Isreali Housing programme. Her group had been holding up tanks and bulldozers all morning in Hi Es Salam, Rafah. Other foreigners who were with her said the driver of the bulldozer was aware that Rachel was there, and continued to destroy the houses.

Rachel had engaged the Bulldozers attention with a megaphone. At first he just he dropped sand and other heavy debris on her to drive out of the demolition zone but then took matters further by using the bulldozer to push her to the ground and twice drive over her. Both arms, legs and skull were fractured. She was transferred out of the demolition zone to hospital, where she later died. The demolitions continued on schedule, though has been since questioned as illegal.

ريتشل خلت سائق البلدوزر ينتبهلها عن طريق مكبر الصوت. بالاول رمى عليها الرمل وانقاض وحطام حتى يقلعها من موقع الهدم بس الامور وصلت لمنحى تاني وقت استخدمو البلدوزر عشان يوقعوها ع الارض ويدعس عليها مرتين. ايديها, رجليها وراسها تكسرو. اخدوها براة موقع الهدم للمشفى, بعدين هنيك ماتت. الهدم استمر بجدولو, مع انو بهداك الوقت شككو بعدم شرعيتها.

How can there be peace when there is no respect for Human life, Israel , How can there be peace targeting with proportionality ? 1 rocket fired into Israel earns 100 hundred returned ?

05. The Sound of Free Speech Part 01

This is the sound of free speech

Ahuh, Ahuh, Ahuh, Ahuh, Ahuh, Ahuh, Ahuh, Ahuh,

Ahuh,

Ooooh Yeah !

2005 marked the “Hitnatkut” the official withdrawal of the Israeli Army and the dismantling of settlements in the strip.

Governments have changed in Israel and the question and relevance of Israeli desires for beach front properties along the strip must be raised once again.

Is the up cycling of Rocket campaigns, evident since the Pillar of Clouds, just a precursor to a west bank style settlement program ? A future paradise, a carbon copy, a settlement dream of the condo overlooking the Hebron Heights only available in Gaza City or of the Philadelphia route ?

Is the real blueprint drafted off the back of the rocket campaigns actually an evolution of the Strip as a Mediterranean beach paradise

The result of our inquiry on the project has meant that some real film and audio content intended for use is disallowed for public broadcast., namely interviews with settlers and Palestinian Arabs in the West Bank, of video footage detailing parts of the town, street, of military personnel and scenes of “disagreement” between the two communities in the settlement areas.

We have though allowed to recreate dialogue and provide comment of observations based around filming in Hebron West Bank, though are obliged due to broadcast restrictions to advise listeners that all content is a reconstruction and based on a theatrical re-presentation of events.

Lets do it Yeah !

Observations, ob ob ob ob ob ob observations

What Observations can be seen, when regarding settlements, when taking as an example, Hebron in the West Bank ?

The Following observations regarding living conditions can be noted:

A prominence of Israeli anti Arabic graffiti sprayed on Arab establishments.

Windows in Arab homes appear to have been smashed and the properties “run down” yet Jewish Settlers properties are in splendid condition.

The construction of cages around Arab properties, where none exist around Jewish properties on the same street.
(Note: the Cages have been provided by Israel to protect Arab Civilians from Bering assaulted and stoned by Settlers )

There is Military policing on foot by the IDF of Public Streets, in the settlement zone in Full Combat gear. Their Guns are always dropped towards the Arab side not the settlement side.

In talking to residents in the settlement zone, Jewish Settlers talk of looking out through motivation windows on to the strip, of a land ripe for development and once cleared inclusion into the Israeli Fold.

The Settlers complain of noise levels, that the Palestinian residents keep irregular hours and wail and shout constantly, that because of this, the happiness of the community is strengthen only by the settlement program.
In talking to Arab Citizens in the Settlement Zone, they talk of constant abuse by Settlers, common assault, throwing of stones and bottles, of being preventing from intervening against bullying, of having to ask permission from the IDF to cross a street to the Settler side and that any response to aggression by Palestinians, women or children , will result in their removal and detention by the IDF.

All settlers engaged, were overfed,. All Palestinians engaged were underfed, underfed, underfed, underfed, underfed, underfed…

Madness and the Demon in an ever enthralling violent embrace they lay the spawn of their copulation on our homes, our orchards, our fields our, our………………..

Rockets, scream into the sky like hungry mosquitoes seeking to suck the life, the blood from us, to drain us. The Jinn, (جن) The darkness, made from the fire ever changing, ever scorching a monstrous impersonation of humanity metalled by the fists of power media politic to justify how they pour judgement upon us.

we hide, we jump , we run. Fragile soulless dolls fleeing the nightmare condition by violence, in between cracks in concrete steel girders up shooters headless flowers, flowers, flowers in the night garden, flowers for graves, metal twisting lifeless rusting graves.

The explosion in rocket warfare around the Gaza strip and the incendiary social issues of tension between lying the two communities, the issue of an Israeli settlement program appears central to all disagreement.

The settlers living areas are serene as the IDF has their fingers on the trigger. The Defence or the threat of strength, leaves a clear imprint that the IDF are in control and there constant daily presence simply won’t let that be forgotten. For the Palestinian, the true reality is staring up the barrel of an IDF gun.

Entrances to Palestinian front doors wrapped in rusting steel cages, Yet seeing Settlers are gardens flowing with strawberries and roses.

flowing with strawberries and roses,

flowing with strawberries and roses,

In relation to the strip, without disproportionate social control and wealth division would Hamas even exist ? Ironically with this line of questioning in mind, it appears that the Pillar of Clouds is not a guiding light for the Israeli People, it is not a metaphor, it is, in its current form, wantant endless demolition and it is that demolition that will not provide Israel with, as it publicly justifies, a protective edge to guard the civil liberties of the Israeli People,. It is though perhaps more with the intent to drive a parting through the red sea of Arab and World resistance to reach a beach front prime real estate opportunity.

When all the demolition is done, when the site is cleared,. Redevelopment can begin unhindered.
Do Hamas and the PLO, just by existing work in the interests of settlement development drivers by justifying policies of retaliation and occupation ?

The door swings both ways,. Action and reaction, Do those raised in Fear and Anger lean naturally towards Peace or War ? As the rocket responses policies continue, what type of a people are the hard right creating on the neighbouring strip ?

Looking though the smokescreens, the political and Media twists a clarity emerges,. Is this really what the driver for war on Gaza is ?

Not just another clear and build campaign, not a small town resurgence of apartheid, this is a redevelopment plan on a biblical scale. Prime location condo’s in the “Hebron heights” development program .

How far will the policy of Protection for the privileged at any length go ? Not a racism issue, not a tribal war issue , not a religious issue but Over 60 years of the greatest real estate planning in History.

The Power of Willful Ignorance (featuring Carol Hodge & Kate Shortt)

The Power of Willful Ignorance (featuring Carol Hodge & Kate Shortt)

This Song was originally inspired by the Global Ground Breaking ExposE on UK advertising techniques used to normalise Factory Farming,

See the original video that inspired the song: www.ciwf.org.uk/truth “Think you aren’t being fooled by advertising tricks? Take a look at this so-called expert revealing food marketing’s secret weapon.”

Organizations such as Animal Aid have worked tirelessly on exposing malpractice and issues of Ethics in the UK farming Industry though the well financed and omnipresent marketing machine wielded by the farming industry with its official government sponsor’s continues to peddle the deception.

After investigating publically released footage by Animal Aid http://www.slaughterhousecctv.org.uk/ , London Vegan Action Groups and FISHINABOX pooled our efforts and made some of our own investigations , findings justified the writing and release of this song and Film footage will be featured in the Offical Song Video for “The Power of Willful Ignorance”

OUR FINDINGS…….

NO AMOUNT OF MARKETING MAKES FACTORY FARMING ACCEPTABLE

heidi head on a plate WEB

THE POWER OF WILLFUL IGNORANCE
People – will believe anything you say
As long as you say it with a smile
People – they just don’t want to know the truth
They just want to know that everything’s alright

But I don’t want to rely upon
The third hand information that I’m fed
No I don’t want to hear another sound byte
That simplifies the problems up ahead

If you eat me(at), at least have the guts
To look me in the eye
And recognize
That something’s died
Something’s died

She takes her free trade coffee white with two
She likes her chicken skinned and vacuum sealed
The halal-kosher debate is none of her concern
A dozen eggs are cheaper from a shed, not a field

The chew that’s in her fruity sweets, the milk that’s chocolaty
The crush of insect red that stains her hands and teeth
The dolphins in her tuna, the human screams of pork back leg
The fluffy yellow orange red of males who hatched the egg

But who is she to argue?
She’s greased the trolley wheels
She’s priced out of the market
And her budget simply cannot yield

Two dozen sugared biscuits
Are cheaper and more filling
Than one organic piece of fruit
So what would you decide?

If you eat me(at), at least have the guts
To look me in the eye
And recognize
That something’s died,. Something’s died

The Notes:

Track 01 – HANNIBAL

Acoustic Wordsmiths Urban Rap track on Fur , back in Fashion Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

Real Fur,. It;s everywhere again ! Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ? The reality is FAUX FUR never really looks that great after a few weeks and a rainstorm, If your trim still has its bright eyed and bushy tailed look,. its most likely real fur,. pretty sick stuff,. with a global growing skin alive policy,. back handers to hide sources and material tagging to get round import restrictions, elite advertising and profiteering Real Fur is the symbol of absolute ethical and social decadence.

When people wear a jacket with a FUR trim, you are making the clear statement: “Hey i’m really cool with that, and cares about where it comes from as long as i look pretty”..but are you ? really, what kind of person would be ?

Lyrics:
Rabbit Fur , Dog Fur, why not skin a cat fur ?
thought you had the quality but you have got the crapfur
the only fur i’d wanna see is the one thats on your Bush,
on your Bush…x2
the only fur i’d wanna see is the one thats on your Bush,

Been down the fur shop wax your muff and all that,
but you fucking came back with a fluffy fur hat
I seen a poster offering a reward for you lost cat
whats the reward for fur on the back ?
what if you were killed for your fur coat ?
seen that PETA advert where that bloke
picks up a pole and wacks her round her boat
strips off her back spreads blood like a moat

And it’s not the one on your coat lady

That you’d rather wear that of another living thing
Well it ain’t living now, it’s remains in the bin
And the chances that it died humanely are slim
You wouldn’t wear your pet dog so why wear that
There’s no difference between fido and your fucking mink hat
And if you think there is then you’re truly a twat
Now stand in line as I give you all a slap
a slap a slap

Track 02 – Fur Trade (NORDICS) Not FAMILY FRIENDLY

02. European Fur Farms Exposed

sales figures on fur in the UK have sky rocketed through the roof in the last 5 years. Cruel or Cool ? Are we such a nation of self-obsessed wannabees that the ”what” in what we wear is no longer important ?

The Fur Farming prohibition act was passed in 2000,. to prohibit the keeping of animals soley or primarily for the slaughter value of their fur.

Prior to the ban there were 11 fur farms in the UK producing 100,000 mink skins for luxury retail consumption a year. A public consultation in 1998 found there was overwhelming public support to end the practice in the UK.

So if there are no Fur farms in the UK who’s producing the fur that finds itself on to the UK high street ?

Cheap trims and hoods are classically imported from Asia or via Us markets. due to the rise in cost of producing fake fur, cheap real furs such as dog, raccoon in in the toy market cat fur have replaced fake as the main staple supply.

The fine mink and chinchilla furs favored in luxury London retailers are being for the most part supplied via Denmark and Norway. Both these countries insist their fur production is ethical.

A series over undercover recordings and video footage within the Nordic fur industry presents a distressing picture that appears out of step, in every way with this public statement. Please consider the impact of allowing this industry to continue unchallenged.

The following recording presents the experiences Animals for Fur go through, from the initial confinement leading to the knawing of limbs, starvation eating of excrement, and other , normal , physiological disorders caused for confinement. through to the execution of animals, the removal of skins and disposal of the carcasses as waste or by product.

Act    I – Confinement

Act   II – Execution

Act III – Defilment

They skin the fur off the animals alive.That’s for the trims and then for full pelts what they do is rather than damage the fur they capture the animal and they anally electrocute it with electrodes so they remove the fur without and damage to the fur and word is that the meat goes to pet food so at least there is some sort of by product.

It goes back into the pet food chain, whereas with some European furs they just, they just dump it for rubbish ,. ..

it goes back into the pet food chain so there is some by product but it’s a cruel process, here’s the recordings

Western demand for cheap fur product.
this demand has created a multi billion dollar industry, animal theft, and an explosion of the fur farming in china. The industry is unregulated* and many of the animals processed for fur have been found still wearing pet collars.
Fur, such as dog raccoon and cat are being processed at a rate of over 100,000 pelts a week and have last year passed the 5 million animal mark yet despite this demand continues unchecked and unchallenged.
Stores have been outed as labeling cheap fur products as fake and as recently as last week, a leading high street store in Covent Garden Store was forced to remove 4 products following an oversight on labeling. Most furs for sale in the UK are being sourced from the cheap fur unregulated network and purchasers are unaware of the origin of their product believing them to be very good fakes.

This audio recording documents the anal electrocution and skinning alive of dogs and raccoon’s for the westerns fur trim and hoods market

*Legislation against Cruelty has been drafted in 2009 but sidelined due to financial implications of applying the law though the main fur regions such as HeiBei have released Public statement that they are ethical.

عمود من الغيوم – Pillar of Clouds – Single (Palestine قطاع غزة‎ )

عمود من الغيوم – Pillar of Clouds SINGLE – Palestine

Release of the title track from the up and coming (Summer 2015) Gaza – Pillar of Clouds E.P.

Lyrics:

When a HALMUTH – (Jewish judges hammer) strikes on wood, all nails will lift in defiance.

عندما هالموث ” مطرقة القاضي عند اليهود ” تضرب على الخشب كل المسامير سوف تُرفع في تحدٍ.

Why do you pull the whiskers of the cat Hamas, when your rockets are fired from trucks parked outside our schools and hospitals ?

لماذا تنزع شعيرات شارب القط حماس, عندما تُطلق صورايخك من شاحنات متوقفة خارج مدارسنا و مشافينا.

How can there be peace when there is no respect for Human life, Israel , How can there be peace when there is no targeting with proportionality ? 1 Rocket fired into Israel earns 100 hundred returned ?

كيف من الممكن ان يكون هناك سلام عندما لايوجد حُرمة لحياةِ الانسان, اسرائيل, كيف من الممكن ان يكون مقترناً مع هدف السلام ؟ صاروخ واحد يطلق نحو اسرائيل يستحق مئةً بالمقابل ؟

Mossad, shame on your “convenience” so “all seeing” yet unwilling to tell the difference between a fighter and a child.

أيها الموساد عار على ” راحة بالكم ” اذاً ” كل ما ترون ” الى الآن غير راغبين بالقول ما الفرق بين المقاتل والطفل .
