The big show has arrived and the organizers here in Victoria have put together what is sure to be a very memorable day. Today, you have the opportunity to engage peaceful rebellion and face the GMO juggernaut M-O-N-S-A-N-T-O through tactical means of public protest. The protest is valiant in its aim but requires several levels of post-event continuity to most effectively starve the beast.

As consumers we hold the purchasing power which directly impacts the financial bottom line of all businesses. By voting with your dollars, you decide which companies you support. To quell the tide of crony corporatism by Big Agri-Biz and Big Government, we must plants seeds of an idea whose time has come, and we must nurture them through educated and values-based market purchasing.

Remembering the Life of Splitting The Sky – Champion of the People 1952-2013

It is with a heavy heart that we share with our readers that Mohawk Native Dacajeweiah or Splitting The Sky, also known by the colonial name John Boncore Hill, has passed away at age 61 on March 13, 2013. Dac left us near his home in Adams Lake, BC as a result of an accidental fall that claimed his life due to head trauma. For updated information please visit http://splittingthesky.blogspot.ca/.

Splitting The Sky was born in Buffalo, New York on January 7, 1952. The oldest of thirteen children, he and his brothers and sisters were taken to residential-type schools and foster homes where they were severely abused by racist authorities. He was the only man convicted as a result of allegedly killing a prison guard at Attica State Prison in September 1971. With the help of former U.S. Attorney-General Ramsey Clark, STS was released by a pardon from Governor Hugh Carey in 1979.

We Are Change Victoria has proudly worked with Dac over many years and hosted him on several occasions for community events in Victoria. A group photo of us together has been posted on this site for years (see right column of our homepage) where WACV hosted Dac at Saint Ann’s Academy in 2008 where he delivered one of the most powerful lectures on 9/11 ever recorded.

STS_Event_3

This news is painful and saddening as his family and the world has been dealt a great loss. As a true hero and champion of the people fighting imperialism, government fraud, environmental destruction, global elitism, the evaporation of property rights and individual liberty.

As a gallant sovereign leader and values-based family man we give our most humble respects to our friend Splitting The Sky.

Some of his most notable contributions include:
– Husband to Saundra Bruderer ‘She-Keeps-the-Door’
– Father of John Hill Jr., Nicosa Hill, Angela Jack, Dylan Bruderer, Ora Star Henderson Boncore, Rainbow Rose Bruderer and Che Thunder Bruderer
Gustafsen Lake Standoff
Attica Rebellion
Attempted Arrest of George W. Bush
– Consistent man of integrity, strength, aptitude, and love

In his own words:

Here is a personal signed copy of his autobiography which will be cherished forever:

New Documentary – Resonance: Beings of Frequency

resonance

This spectacular documentary uncovers for the very first time, the actual mechanisms by which mobile phone technology can cause cancer. And, how every single one of us is reacting to the biggest change in environment this planet has ever seen.

Two billion years ago life first arrived on this planet; a planet, which was filled with a natural frequency. As life slowly evolved, it did so surrounded by this frequency. and Inevitably, it began tuning in.

By the time mankind arrived on earth an incredible relationship had been struck; a relationship that science is just beginning to comprehend.

Research is showing that being exposed to this frequency is absolutely integral to us. It controls our mental and physical health, it synchronizes our circadian rhythms, and it aids our immune system and improves our sense of wellbeing.

Occupy Victoria Freedom and Solutions Rally

Occupy Victoria Returns with 2nd Annual Occupy Freedom and Solutions Rally at the BC Legislature on Oct.20th

Line Up of Famous Canadians Will Gather to Drive Public Awareness
About Proven Solutions to Take Back our Country

Victoria, BC, Canada – On Saturday, 20 October 2012 – assertive citizens will lawfully occupy the front steps of the B.C. Legislature from 12:00pm-3:00pm to gather for the 2nd Annual Freedom and Solutions Rally. Prominent liberty-minded speakers from across the country will share viable solutions for Canadians to use tackle government abuse and our predatory financial system.

“We are all in this together, we can either rally together and talk about solutions as individuals, or continue the status quo of divisive political paradigms pitting left wing vs. right wing,” says Josh Steffler, “this is a chance to celebrate the similarities we share rather than the differences that divide us.”

Legendary Canadian documentary film producer, Paul Grignon, creator of the “Money as Debt” film series, will discuss the collapse of fractional reserve banking and solutions which empower the individual in the 21st century.

It’s the system! The days of money as a single uniform commodity as a medium of exchange are coming to an end. New alternatives spawned through innovation and technology now brings practical implementation of self-issued credit and digital exchanges to the marketplace. Individuals around the world will replace the current corrupt banking systems, not with a disastrous global currency proposed by the elitist crooks in charge now, but instead with individualized self-issued credit empowering people in the free market.

Our line up of speakers includes Paul Grignon, Will Thomas, Raymond Geisler, Jamie Scott, Robert Menard, and David Arthur Johnson. The rally will cover topics which include food security, health freedom, honest money, property rights, smart meters, environmental protection, non-aggression and peace, justice, legalization of marijuana, solving media and government corruption, and ending Canada’s involvement in war.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend and ask questions. Bring a chair, bring a sign, and bring a notepad and pen, as we engage with the community to offer real solutions you can leave and work on right after the rally. Come enjoy the speakers, the music, and the revolution!

About the Monetary Paradigm Shift
The enslavement of man by financial dictators throughout history forcing fractional reserve banking systems and mediums of exchange on individuals provides for moral destruction within such cultures. The functioning power of incentivized corruption with money serving as a single uniform commodity provides the means for monetary inflation and expanding debt. New digital barter exchanges based on self-issued credit and innovative technology platforms such as BitCoin.org are shifting the financial paradigm placing power in the hands of the individual within a free market. Canadian Paul Grignon, co-producer of the famous documentary series Money As Debt, clearly outlines proposed solutions for evolution beyond money in a modern economy.

About We Are Change Victoria
We Are Change Victoria works to educate, motivate, and activate those striving to uncover the truth behind the private banking cartels, the military industrial complex, political elitists, and others who are directing the majority of local, national, and international policy, and who are actively seeking to eliminate sovereignty of the individual. Our mandate is to raise awareness and encourage peaceful activism. We wish to inspire a community of liberty-seekers and peacemakers through creative campaigns with a commitment of non-violence. We Are Change Victoria is not so much a group but an idea, an idea that through our efforts and convictions we can sculpt the world to be unrelenting in its commitment for individual liberty and sovereign human rights.

EVENT TONIGHT: WORLD RENOWNED CLIMATE SCIENTIST DR. TIM BALL TO SPEAK AGAINST UNITED NATIONS AGENDA 21

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 25, 2012

UNITED NATIONS AGENDA 21 – WORLD RENOWNED VICTORIA CLIMATE SCIENTIST DR. TIM BALL CHALLENGES GLOBAL TAX ON LIFE AND LOST SOVEREIGNTY UNDER UN PROGRAM

VICTORIA – Anthropogenic Climate Change is a key plank within a long-term United Nations agenda for international taxation on life and one world government. Dr. Tim Ball has gained international recognition for his courage in correcting the climate propaganda1 and hysteria created by fraudulent climate scientists and perpetuated by the corporate-controlled, and increasingly discredited, mainstream media.

Anthropogenic or man-made global warming now branded as ‘climate change’ ties into a wide range of frightening globalist programs opposing the interests of Canadians and citizens the world over, such as the ongoing, aggregated corporate domination of the global food supply with genetically modified foods and seeds2, highly-funded aerial spraying known as stratospheric geo-engineering3, corrupt global carbon trading exchanges to tax basic human life4, and funding for the international green military industrial complex5 sanctioned and executed by the murderous UN Security Council.

We Are Change (Victoria Chapter) are pleased to host an evening with Dr. Tim Ball. A public film screening and presentation by Dr. Ball is scheduled for Friday, July 27th at the Victoria West Community Centre from 7pm-9pm. Curious and concerned citizens are welcome to participate in the event and collect feedback from Dr. Ball during the scheduled question and answer period. Josh Steffler gave his support for Tim’s contrarian work and his courage in speaking truth to power:

“Tim is a voice of freedom in Canada and internationally. He’s one of a small but growing number of high-profile Canadians speaking the truth of how climate science is being used by global interests to swindle Canadians, to destroy our national sovereignty and the sovereignty of nations around the world.” Josh continues “The climate hoax is only one of an alarming number of billionaire-fostered dominant social themes (memes) that intend to gut national sovereignty.”

“The more you research these programs, the clearer it becomes that they are all about serving the agendas of a small cadre of international financiers at the expense of the individual. We Are Change is determined to stop them,” said Steffler, “as a true environmentalist who works diligently to create a healthier planet for my family and community I will not allow dangerous international organizations like the UN to threaten the public’s safety.”

– Event Schedule –

Victoria West Community Centre – 521 Craigflower Rd

The evening begins from 7:00pm – 8:00pm with several short screenings:

Vaccinations – “The Greater Good”
Agenda 21 – “Behind the Green Mask”
Chemtrails – “Sinister Skies”
Climate Change – “The Global Tax Fraud”

Dr. Tim Ball’s presentation will take place from 8:00pm – 9:00pm, and a question and answer period will follow. Dr. Tim Ball will be available to meet with media following the event.

Jed Babbin author of Inside the Asylum – Why the United Nations and Old Europe are Worse Than You Think

Note: This except was pulled from Amazon.com. I own the book. It’s 5 stars out of 5. Also, watch the video below and for the record Barack Obama is the Chairman of the UN Security Council.

FoodforDictators-X

FoodforDictators-X

Book Description:
Babbin details how the United Nations actively pursues anti-American policies and appeases America’s enemies, while being largely funded by $3 billion worth of annual American dues. After revealing the depth of rampant corruption in the UN, Babbin concludes that it is time to recognize the changes in Old Europe and redesign America’s alliances that line up with America’s national interests.

From the Inside Cover
If John Kerry and Hillary Clinton have their way, Kofi Annan and Jacques Chirac will gain veto power over American foreign policy. Scared? You should be. It could happen. And in Inside the Asylum, former deputy undersecretary of defense Jed Babbin shows just how it could happen and why the UN deserves the nickname “The Asylum.”

In Inside the Asylum, you’ll discover:

* How the UN assists international terrorists. Babbin exposes the shocking links between the UN and terrorist organizations.

* The money trail from the UN to Saddam Hussein. Babbin rips the veil from the outrageous Oil-for-Food program-proving that the UN sold its moral legitimacy for oil, stuffed its own pockets at the expense of the Iraqi people, and undermined American pressure on Saddam Hussein: the UN’s cash cow. The UN’s Oil-for-Food program, according to Babbin, “provided Saddam Hussein with the means to bribe politicians, to deprive his people of needed food and medicine, and to literally steal billions of dollars. There is even emerging evidence that money from the program might have gone to support al-Qaeda.”

• The UN’s raid on the American Treasury. Babbin provides a hair-raising glimpse into the UN bureaucracy, dominated by Third World staffers who consider the United States Treasury “the common heritage of mankind.” Babbin starts at the top, exposing Kofi Annan, the UN secretary-general, as an anti-American moral relativist who misses no opportunity to arrogate power from the United States to the UN.

• How the United Nations and the European Union are morally bankrupt-and open enemies of the United States. Babbin shows how France and the United Nations have cost American lives in Iraq by their perverse delaying of American action in the Iraq War. American troops are fighting and dying today because of a terrorist strategy Saddam Hussein developed while France and the United Nations delayed Operation Iraqi Freedom.

As Jed Babbin shows, the UN is more of an international criminal than a dispenser of legitimate international law. If America wants to retain its sovereignty and security, it’s time to escape from the UN asylum and say goodbye to the false friends of Old Europe. “We owe no tribute to the UN and the EU,” declares Babbin. “We should look after our own defense.”

The United Nations building in Manhattan is an international enclave, no longer American territory. Inside the Asylum is a powerful argument that it’s time to reclaim that land for America.

BC FIRST UNVEILS PLAN TO CHANGE SYSTEM

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Monday, November 8, 2010

BC FIRST UNVEILS PLAN TO CHANGE SYSTEM THAT ALLOWS BC LIBERAL DICTATORIAL APPROACH

Delaney: It’s not enough to simply pick a new leader – the system must change in order to restore democracy
PORT COQUITLAM – BC First has unveiled its’ plan to overhaul the system that permits the concentration of power in government witnessed under the BC Liberals – an approach which has severely damaged BC’s democracy says party spokesman, Chris Delaney.

Delaney says it is not enough to simply change captains of a sinking ship. “The peaceful revolution created by the backlash against the HST was in response to an emerging dictatorship in BC. The BC Liberal caucus’ failure to recognize that will ensure that the entire party follows their former leader over the same cliff into the political abyss.”

“We need total change. We need to open up and democratize the system that allows a single person to dictate policy no matter what taxpayers think, and no matter what the cost to our economy and our democracy. Today, BC First has put forward such a plan,” said Delaney.

“Our strategy for democratic renewal will begin with the creation of a new BC Constitution that will be controlled by the people, not the politicians. It will lay out the powers of government – both what they can and cannot do. And any change to the BC Constitution will require the approval of the people in a province wide vote. Never again will a single person be able to create a tax through an executive order, or thwart the will of the public on major issues.”

Delaney continued, “A BC Constitution that is created by the people, for the people, and is owned by the people will restore our democracy, our prosperity and our freedoms. It will protect our environment, our resources and our communities for the people of BC. It is the single biggest change we can make to ensure the return of sound fiscal management and prosperity to BC again.”

Delaneys says a BC First Government will also restrict political party donations to citizens only, and will implement a full, open and televised public inquiry into government corruption committed under the BC Liberals over the last 10 years.

Following is the BC First plan for Democratic Renewal:

BC FIRST DEMOCRATIC RENEWAL

BC First will institute a complete overhaul of our government system, resulting in the creation of a “BC Constitution” establishing the limits of government power, subject to change only by the people in a province-wide referendum.

The BC Constitution will include:
• Workable Referendum, Initiative and Recall to empower citizens and hold government accountable between elections.
• Limits on government spending that can only be exceeded with public approval via referendum
• Public approval for new taxes or tax increases via referendum.
• Secret ballot free votes in the legislature to empower MLAs to act for their constituents.
• Public hearings for all conflict of interest charges or other government inquiries, that are televised and open to citizens.
• Terms Limits of no more than 8 years for a premier, and no more than 12 years for any MLA.

BC First will limit donations to political parties to citizens only with a cap of $1,000 to return the democratic process to the people instead of powerful interests.

BC First will institute a full, open and televised public inquiry into government corruption under the BC Liberals including the BC Rail Scandal, the HST Election Fraud Scandal, The BC Hydro Run of River scandal, and the Bilderberg Funding Scandal.

BC CONFLICT OF INTEREST COMMISSIONER TO INVESTIGATE PREMIER CAMPBELL’S ATTENDANCE AT BILDERBERG MEETING

New information taken from Bilderberg website shows premier was not acting in official capacity while attending meeting


 

 

 

 

Port Coquitlam – BC Conflict of Interest Commissioner, Mr. Paul D.K. Fraser, has responded to the BC First Party’s request to conduct an investigation into Premier Gordon Campbell’s use of public funds to attend a private Bilderberg meeting in June 2010.

BC First Party spokesman, Chris Delaney, says Commissioner Fraser is reviewing the information sent to him to determine how he will proceed under the Member’s Conflict of Interest Act. Delaney says the Commissioner also invited him to forward any additional material relevant to the case.

“We submitted new documents taken from the official Bilderberg website http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org/index.php which support our contention that Premier Campbell is in a conflict of interest. Of particular importance is the posting on ‘Participants’ that says: ‘Participants attend Bilderberg in a private and not an official capacity.’,”said Delaney.

“This is a particularly damning statement. It shows unequivocally that the meeting was private and not a public or official meeting as the premier has said. The Act is clear, a member of the Legislature cannot take public funds for personal use,said Delaney.

Delaney pointed out that the Bilderberg website also makes clear that accommodations for the meetings are paid for by the local Bilderberg Steering Committee members of the host country.

“That means private Bilderberg members paid for the hotel and accommodations for the premier. He is required by law to submit a ‘disclosure statement of benefit’ for any private benefits received while a member of the Legislature. We are unaware of Mr. Campbell filing such a statement with the Commissioner,” said Delaney.

Delaney says if the Commissioner determines that Premier Campbell is in a conflict over the use of public funds to attend a private meeting, it will be the first time in BC history that a premier has been in an “actual” conflict of interest.

“Every other premier that has resigned over conflict of interest allegations has done so on the basis that there was an ‘apparent’ conflict. In this case, it is clear the meeting was private, that Premier Campbell knew it was private, that he used public funds to finance his participation in it, and that he received a private benefit in terms of accommodations while attending.”

“We look forward to the investigation, and will cooperate with the Commissioner in any way required to bring justice to this very serious potential breach of the Act,” Delaney concluded.
