TTIP and Fracking go hand in glove, info from over the pond about the consequences for Europeans (UK included). Corporate vested interests? Just take a look at this Frackogram:  http://www.fraw.org.uk/mei/archive/fracktured_accountability/frackogram_2015-A3.pdf on Paul Mobb's web site, a logical, clear thinking man who tried to bring this political misconduct to the attention of those responsible in Westminster: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tc1ESFg4fkA more info on Paul's research and subsequent arrest: http://newint.org/blog/2015/03/12/paul-mobbs-citizens-arrest/

Noam Chomsky cites the work done by Indigenous activists in Canada to stop the environmental destruction of the planet.

"So, at one extreme you have indigenous, tribal societies trying to stem the race to disaster. At the other extreme, the richest, most powerful societies in world history, like the United States and Canada, are racing full-speed ahead to destroy the environment as quickly as possible." — Noam Chomsky 

Indigenous rights are the best defence against Canada's resource rush >http://bit.ly/15MpCoE

"First Nations people – and the decision of Canadians to stand alongside them – will determine the fate of the planet."

'Indigenous communities like the Elsipogtog First Nation are on the frontlines of defending water and the land for everyone' >http://bit.ly/17asTRa - CommonDreams.org

Must watch! http://bit.ly/113NDWU — Noam Chomsky biography

"The general population doesn't know what's happening, and it doesn't even know that it doesn't know."
— Noam Chomsky, source: http://bit.ly/PHAf5z

"As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, diverted to consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome." — Noam Chomsky, source: http://bit.ly/gim3so

"It's going to take large popular movements to change this. And that can happen. It’s happened in the past. That’s why freedom and justice have expanded over the centuries. It’s never been gifts; it wasn’t gifts from the rich and powerful. These are things that were won, they were won by the labour movement, and by the women’s movement, and by the civil rights movement, or by human rights movements. They’re won by popular struggle, then you move forward. But they’re never given as gifts, and they won’t be in the future.“ — Noam Chomsky. Watch it here>>http://bit.ly/X4TseE<
