NO WAR MEASURES ACT! Media in Canada seems to be pushing for it, but think about what it means. Army in the streets, police making random checks, raiding homes. Stop congratulating China, which can be blamed for allowing conditions where the virus thrived in the first place. Second, the official word of China cannot be trusted; it is notorious for misrepresenting the truth. It is evident China authorities suppressed doctors' warnings of the new virus in the beginning, punishing them for saying anything about it. Finally, let's look at China's enforcement: random body temperature checks done and anyone just with a high temperature hauled away by the police. (They can be many explanations for a fever.) Police welding doors to residences shut. People with other serious medical conditions not able to exit homes.
DON'T LET ANYONE SAY THAT THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC IS THE CAUSE OF ECONOMIC CRISIS! The global economy has been in perpetual crisis and headed for a total failure by the fall of 2019.
Signs of collapse at end of 2019
-A string of mass layoffs and bankruptcies occurred in the corporate world as of October 2019.
-Most people do not have sufficient savings for an emergency situation or a short period without income; they are living paycheque to paycheque. That is why many people do not have means to pay rent etc.
Went to food stores today for the first time in a week. Amazed to find shelves in a major supermarket EMPTY. Absence of most bread, pasta, fresh meat and poultry, sandwich meat and sausages, frozen food, tinned food and crackers. Wow!
Is it because of hoarding? I am thinking that may not be altogether correct. I would call it "stocking up" in the main. Another factor is all the people now staying in and eating at home who weren't doing so before. How to account for all the people who normally frequent restaurants throughout the week who, upon receiving urgent calls to stay home from authorities, have taken to preparing meals at home?
I'm pretty healthy these days. You?
Allergic responses to air quality are slight; as this March here is unseasonably cold, I am fighting off chills.
I generally take measures to ward off the flu during fall/winter and April flu seasons, measures such as limiting the touching of surfaces especially my face, carrying hand gels and wearing gloves when in transit. Same now, though I am staying home more.
I am staying away from the gym, preferring to do some exercises at home. I am limiting my time on public transit and avoiding gatherings.
END GENERAL ECONOMIC SANCTIONS NOW!
Statement for Global Days against Sanctions that Harm the People
Some solidarity and social justice organizations called for a global weekend of actions from March 13 to 15. The Venezuela Peace and Solidarity Committee of Vancouver (VPSC) joins in the actions against the blanket sanctions imposed by US imperialism and its allies that mostly aim to weaken states and movements of the people that stand up to imperialist interference, plunder and exploitation. Far from securing peace, human rights and economic development, they cause shortages of daily necessities and hardship to the working people.
Solidarity for the people of Bolivia!
At the international, anti-imperialist conference held in Caracas on Jan. 24, Pres. Maduro announced a call for a global day of solidarity with the Bolivian people, citing February 25.
The Venezuela Peace and Solidarity Committee of Vancouver joins in expressing strong solidarity with the people of Bolivia. We deplore the recent coup that destroyed the advancement of Bolivian people's quality of life, independence and rights. We support the people's movement, especially that of the indigenous people, lead by the champion of workers', farmers' and indigenous peoples' rights, the unjustly ousted President Evo Morales.

reactors are dangerous, however used, because of their potential for colossal
explosions. For this reason, both nuclear weaponry and nuclear energy have been
sharply criticized from the very beginning of the development of this
technology. Objections to science being subordinated to both military and
commercial interests abound. Nevertheless, nuclear armed weapons and nuclear
power stations have proliferated.
I'm a bit of an empath, an intuitive with sensitivity. In fact, my Meyers-Brigges personality test result is consistently INSJ )intuitive, introvert, sensitive, judgmental). Other readings are consistent.
I knew this before I got all those evaluations because I have seen and heard things that cannot be explained and that would be categorized as paranormal. Things like apparitions, lights, shadows, mists, bangs, sighs, objects moving on their own, dreams... They happen on and off, and in waves when I start thinking about them.
I have been aware that it is advisable to be prepared for disaster or loss of home, but I have not done much preparation other than having some extra preserved food (for about 3 days) and candles with a lighter on hand. Everyone should be better prepared.
I feel I have been lucky so far. I live in an earthquake zone where we get trmors all the time and are awaiting the big one. Weather has been getting more extreme as I have aged into the senior category. Power outages more likely, we have been without hydroelectric power for a few hours at a time twice in the past two years.
