Woke Corporations Who Supported BLM Lobby Against Ban on Chinese Slave Labor

Uyghur lives apparently don’t matter.

Nike, Coca-Cola and Apple, three corporations that vehemently supported the Black Lives Matter movement after the death of George Floyd, are lobbying against a US ban on imports of products produced by Chinese slave labor.

The Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act, which is awaiting a green light from the Senate, bans the import of goods produced in Xinjiang where companies cannot prove they were not made by slave labor.

Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang face massive persecution at the hands of Chinese authorities, with many being held in de facto re-education camps in which they are forced to work and undergo draconian brainwashing programs.

Nike, Coca-Cola and Apple have never missed an opportunity to assert their woke corporate values, with Apple CEO Tim Cook previously proclaiming, “To the Black community – we see you. You matter and your lives matter.”

In honor of BLM, Nike also released an amended version of their slogan that said, “For once, Don’t Do It,” while Coca-Cola CEO James Quincey said, “Companies like ours must speak up as allies to the Black Lives Matter movement.”

Apparently, Uyghur lives don’t matter because all three corporations are lobbying against the Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act.

“And yet, for all their performative moralising, these companies are now trying to water down action against the extreme oppression of Uyghur Muslims in China,” reports Spiked.

“The New York Times reports that lobbyists seek changes such as the ‘easing [of] disclosure requirements’ that would be put in place by the act. Apple, it says, has proposed extended compliance deadlines, and is not keen on the idea of giving supply-chain information to the public, preferring to release this information to Congress instead.”

All three companies deny any role in incentivizing slave labor, but research by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute found that “Apple and Nike were beneficiaries of ‘abusive labour transfer programs’ involving Uyghurs.”

Coca-Cola claims that it does not permit modern slavery in its supply chain and has made every effort to stamp it out.

“But disclosure documents are revealing,” writes Spiked. Though not explicit about the ultimate aims of the expenditure, they show both Nike and Coca-Cola have paid for lobbying in relation to the Forced Labour Act, while Apple has also paid for lobbying on what the New York Times describes as ‘Xinjiang-related legislation’.”

The sheer hypocrisy of these transnational corporations having repeatedly virtue signaled about the Black Lives Matter movement while simultaneously trying to uphold modern slavery for profit is beyond staggering.

As we previously highlighted, the NBA has also stood behind the Black Lives Matter movement and all manner of other ‘woke’ causes while caving to Communist China, particularly during its brutal crackdown on protesters in Hong Kong.

“Globalists Are Marching Us Relentlessly Toward Nuclear Armageddon,” Warns Former Senator

Published

Zero Hedge

Fears of nuclear war are increasing across the West as Russia mobilizes hundreds of thousands of troops and declares annexation of parts of Ukraine. Meanwhile, President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that Ukraine is applying for membership in NATO. These two developments could be the most significant escalation since the war’s start. 

Today’s developments are a sobering reminder that nuclear war threats are mounting. Retired Virginia State Senator and retired Marine Col. Richard Black addressed members of the US Congress in an open letter on Tuesday about “globalists are marching us relentlessly toward this nuclear Armageddon.”

Black pointed out:

There would have been no war had we not overthrown the democratically-elected government of Ukraine by violently ousting President Yanukovych in 2014. We promoted war by flooding Ukraine with massive arms shipments afterwards.

The former senator said, “the US could have achieved peace by simply pressing Ukraine to implement the 2014 Minsk Peace Agreements which it had signed, establishing a clear framework for settling outstanding issues peacefully. Ukraine promised to implement the Minsk agreements, but chose instead to make war on the Donbass for the next seven years.” 

He said NATO could’ve sought peace but chose war instead. 

NATO had ample opportunity for peace but deliberately chose war. The US realized that, with Russia’s back to the wall, it would have no choice to but to attack. In 2007, US Ambassador to Russia William Burns pointedly warned that movement toward absorbing Ukraine into NATO might well trigger war between Ukraine and Russia. Nonetheless, the Obama administration overthrew the Ukrainian president and flooded in weapons, knowing that doing so would trigger war.

Black said billionaire elites who have an interest in the region are making “war profits even if it means gambling the lives of hundreds of millions of people across the globe.” 

“Should we annihilate the world’s population to intervene in a border war where the US has no vital national interest?” the former senator asked. 

Black called for an immediate end to this war by making Ukraine a neutral, non-aligned state, “just as we did during the Cold War with Austria in 1955.” 

But it appears the former senator’s plea to avoid further conflict went unheard after Zelensky’s declared intent to apply for expedited NATO membership as President Putin proclaimed the annexation of 15% of Ukraine. 

Based on Article 5, any acceptance of Ukraine into NATO would automatically trigger a Russia-West world war (WWIII). 

In a speech Friday, Putin said the US created a “precedent” by using nuclear weapons against Japan during WW2. 

Last week, Navy Admiral Charles A. Richard – currently serving as the US Strategic Command chief — warned that “possible direct armed conflict with a nuclear-capable peer” could be ahead. 

Here’s the former senator’s open letter to lawmakers on Capitol Hill:

UN Deletes Weird ‘Satirical’ Article Celebrating Benefits of World Hunger After Backlash

Piece by professor said hunger was “fundamental to the working of the world’s economy.”

The United Nations was forced to delete a weird ‘satirical’ article which celebrated the ‘benefits’ of world hunger after an online backlash.

Originally published in 2008, the article, titled ‘The Benefits of World Hunger’, was recently reposted to the UN’s Chronicle magazine.

“We sometimes talk about hunger in the world as if it were a scourge that all of us want to see abolished,” wrote the author, Professor George Kent from the University of Hawaii.

Kent added that hunger was actually, “A great positive value to many people. Indeed, it is fundamental to the working of the world’s economy. Hungry people are the most productive people, especially where there is a need for manual labour.”

The article asserted that there was no incentive for the global elite to end world hunger, with Kent writing, “if there were no hunger in the world, who would plow the fields?… Who would clean our toilets?… For many of us, hunger is not a problem, but an asset.”

The piece was deleted from the UN website after attracting negative attention from alternative media outlets.

As we document in the video below, technocratic globalist green agenda policies are threatening to cause world hunger.

Farmers in the Netherlands, which is one of the largest exporters of meat in the world, have been told they’ll have to comply with draconian nitrogen emissions cuts.

This will force many of them to shut down their farms for good, risking the food security of hundreds of millions of people at a time when food inflation and a cost of living crisis is already in full swing.

16-Year-Old Dutch Protester Shot at by Police Under Investigation For Manslaughter

“I’m lucky that I survived.”

Published

The 16-year-old demonstrator who was shot at by police during a farmers protest in the Netherlands says he is under investigation for manslaughter.

The incident occurred on Tuesday night in the northern town of Heerenveen when Jouke Hospes had live rounds fired at his tractor during the protest.

Authorities immediately claimed that Hospes had deliberately tried to drive his vehicle into officers, but video footage of the confrontation shows this did not happen.

Hospes described how the incident began, saying farmers were already starting to leave the area when they were confronted by armed police.

“Behind me, it was clear, so I decided to go around it. I calmly crossed the sidewalk and drove very calmly. I went to see if traffic was approaching and if I could cross the road. I was driving [slowly], and suddenly I heard a PANG in my right ear. I thought there soon would be a second one.”

“I didn’t have any damage, so I thought it was a rubber bullet… However, I stopped for a while at Oudehaske, and when I was walking around the tractor, I saw a hole in the iron. All kinds of thoughts went through my head.”

“I have been released for the attempted manslaughter and am still a suspect tonight in my own bed,” said Hospes, who claims he did nothing wrong and is lucky to be alive.

Illustrating the anger stirred up by the incident, the officer who shot at Hospes was reportedly evacuated from his home and is now in hiding.

Hospes was arrested and held in prison, prompting a huge crowd to show up outside the facility to express their support.

After police were given immunity from manslaughter charges for shooting at protesters, numerous different video clips emerged of police recklessly waving guns around.

“Since the orders were declared, police have been seen wearing military-style equipment, have used tear gas against protesters, and have now shown that they’re willing to fire on anyone, even a teenage boy,” reports The Counter Signal.

As we document in the video below, the farmers are protesting against drastic ‘green agenda’ nitrogen cuts which would see their livelihoods devastated.

In order to comply with technocratic globalist rules on climate change cuts, farmers would be paid by the government not to produce food, while 30% of farms would be forced to close down for good.

The restrictions are being imposed at the behest of the World Economic Forum’s ‘great reset’ agenda despite rampant food inflation and a cost of living crisis exacerbated by the war in Ukraine.
