365 days of gratitude "IndyWatch Feed Nznews"

When I was in Wanaka I met a German tourist.

His English was very basic and my German much less so but we managed a conversation.

Hed been in Queenstown the day before and didnt like it.

People, he said, gesturing to show me there were too many. Here there is space.

Like the tourist, I like space and I dont do crowds.

Its not that I dont like people, I just prefer them in smaller numbers.

Living in the country as I do, I usually have plenty of space and only encounter people in very small numbers and Im grateful for that.

Palestine,Israel, the US: How the South Pacific Countries are Selling their Votes "IndyWatch Feed Nznews"

Here it goes again! Several countries of Oceania (also known as South Pacific Nations), or however you want to call that vast, beautiful but thoroughly devastated part of the world, have voted for Israel, for the United States proposed resolution at the United Nations, and therefore, against Palestine.

As reported on December 22, 2017 by Al Jazeera:

The United Nations General Assembly has voted by a huge majority to declare a unilateral US recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital null and void.

At an emergency session of the General Assembly on Thursday, 128 countries voted in favour of a resolution rejecting US President Donald Trumps controversial decision on December 6.

Nine countries voted against, while 35 abstained.

Trump had earlier threatened to cut aid to UN members who would vote against his decision.

Did scarcely inhabited island-nations that are lost in the middle of a tremendous body of water, go crazy?

Before Crossing in Kiribati

After all those horrific nuclear experiments committed there, against their people, by the United States, France and the UK; could local people sincerely believe that the truth as seen from Washington is the only legitimate truth on Earth?

After the naked modern-day colonialism, which is being implemented by Australia, New Zealand, and France, and, of course, by the United States, have the people of Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia become blind?

After total dependency, after decades of humiliation and virtual slavery, do the inhabitants of Oceania believe that their fellow victims in Palestine do not have the right to live in their own state, without barbed wire; that they shouldnt have their own historical capital?

The answer to all these question is, actually: No.

They do what they are doing simply and only because they have no choice.

When working on my book, Oceania, travelling all over the South Pacific, I visited a Jesuit priest and the regions prominent intellectual, Francis X. Hezel. Our encounter took place in the capital of the Federated States of Micronesia...

Hawaii Missile Alert: What The Hell Happened? Important Update! Must See! "IndyWatch Feed Nznews"

Having been on the receiving end of a bungled disaster alert myself, I feel for the residents of Hawaii. But really: A single individualby mistake? Clicking through a safeguard even? Either this individual did this wilfully, or were being told porkies. Was this a hack and the authorities are covering up a systems vulnerability? Whatever []
