Shitf**k...wasn't aware of this going on:


Article from Der Spiegel:


F**king traitors are selling off our country, poisoning the land.

All connected to this Australian lady:


who thinks us poor folks should have less fun and work harder for lower wages.
So that she can get even fatter.

Oh, look, there it is, everybody come have a go
at ol' Finland's hidden treasures, no need for expensive
environmental recon and planning - the Finnish government
just can't wait to help all the Reinhardts and Rotschilds of the
world with the tedious details - fuck the forest, fuck ecology,
fuck the locals, fuck democracy:


Always loved that company logo...


...are they bloody joking with us?

Can't find a better term for what is happening to
the human race and our planet.
Dragon mining it is.
Spot on.

Nationalize it and watch US and UK & NATO troops swarm in. 15.gif The machine is fully prepared to put down anti-globalist sentiment.

Goddamn, thanks for putting this together. I've been keeping my eyes on this since that worker died last March. gaah.gif

Quote:Meanwhile, a police investigation has been launched into the death of an employee at the Talvivaara mine on March 15th.
The employee was taking samples outside the mine’s metal factory when he collapsed. The exact cause of death is unknown, but a possible explanation might be exposure to toxic gas.
Police suspect that safety regulations might have been violated.


From your first article:
Quote:According to the Finnish authorities, "pollutants in nearby waterways are at levels that may cause the death of fish and affect plants and bottom-dwelling organisms". Although the the Finnish Radiation and Nuclear Safety Authority claimed the released uranium would not pose a threat to neither environment nor humans, they at the same time admitted it to be a potential health risk when it makes its way into drinking water.


Since these are huge corporations I assume the same practices are in place all over the world where they operate.

Let the raping of the Great (not White) North commence unabated as the ice continually receeds.

Here is our valiant Minister of the Environment, Mr Ville Niinistö
of the Green Party:


He just got divorced from Maria Wetterstrand, front figure of the
same party in Sweden.

These people were f**kin' jet-commuting daily, Stockholm-Turku,
2004-2012, to lead their media celeb rock star family life.


Not bad for a couple of Oh So True, Awakened Environmentalists!

Can't make this shit up...but the sheeple no longer understands
the concept of human integrity or simple bloody decency.

How come the Talvivaara bullshit passed through Ville's office
without proper follow-up?
Because that seems to be the ministry's job:
Smoothing the way for dragon mining of all calibres.

This particular case only the tip of an iceberg.

Kiss my bony ass, Mr & Mrs "Green Party": doobie.gif
You are no bloody different than the "Left", the "Right", the "Center"
or the "Nationalists".
Just different modi operandi of the POO.


BTW: There was also massive bird die-offs in the Talvivaara
area last spring, it seems.

OK, I'm done for now.

Sure looks like that.

For those of you who don't speak Finnish, nuijasota would translate to this:

Quote:The Club War (also Cudgel War, Finnish Nuijasota, Swedish Klubbekriget) was a 1596/97 peasant uprising in the kingdom of Sweden against exploitation by nobility and military in what is today Finland. The name of the uprising derives from the fact that the peasants armed themselves with various blunt weapons, such as cudgels, flails and maces, as they were seen as the most efficient weapons against the heavily armoured enemies.

They were victorious (99% against the 1%).

I'm not sure the 99% has the balls to try challenging the 1% anymore though... sad2.gif

Yes, discussion and educating people is great, but the petitions and protesting needs to ramp up in many areas.


And you, my dear readers, please, take a lesson: be alert when somebody says there's big money to be made exploiting nature. Be prepared to fight. Make sure that your authorities fulfil their real duty and defend our future. These are usually hard fights but they are essential. You will avoid the nightmares we're experiencing now in Talvivaara.

Definitely. But I guess too many shiny things around today to divert the attention of too many people. At least in the case of the Talvivaara mine the press has been following the disaster to some extent and made people aware of the horrible situation.

Well, he's stepping in the right direction, but talk is cheap. 13.gif

The Chairman of the Green League Ville Niinistö has called for the inclusion of the right to initiate class action lawsuits when current environmental legislation is revised.

His suggestion comes in the wake of the current furor over a toxic waste water leak at the Talvivaara nickel mine at Sotkamo in northern Finland

Speaking at a Green League party gathering on Saturday, Niinistö said it was necessary to correct an error made in previous legislation which denied the right to initiate class action for environmental offences.

He added lessons could be learnt from previous errors and from the current events at the Talvivaara nickel mine when current environmental legislation comes up for review.

"Currently it is impossible to initiate a class lawsuit in Finland for environmental offences. This defect must be corrected," Niinistö told the gathering in Helsinki.


An error in the previous legislation? Sure Ville, I believe you... coffeetime.gif
