Are we there yet?
Part 1 of 2
Aug 6, 2023. The Humanity for Peace Memorial in Dag Hammarsköld Plaza across from the U. N.,”Was this really a memorial, or politics as usual.”
“No More Hiroshimas/No More Nagasakis”
. I arrived about 15 min late and saw this monk as he left … he always rings a prayer bell and says a prayer. (picture from 2022)
But, as the event continued, the list of speakers (and signs) seemed to be more politically focused. Opposed to nuclear war, yes, but promoting La Rouche/Schiller and Socialism in tandem with Communism and hard-left politics was the prevailing theme. (which seems schizo when linking to their odd history)
.There was another opening prayer from the Rev. Dr. Terri L. Strong. She also warned of the potential for Nuclear War on this the 78th Anniversary of Hiroshima/Nagasaki. (video)
Gerald Celente is the speaker in this next clip (born 1946) publisher of the Trends Journal, business consultant and author who makes predictions about the global financial markets and other important events. (video) He was an engaging speaker- so New Yawk.
Gerald describes himself as a “political atheist” and “citizen of the world.” He has dedicated his life to finding meaningful change for peace and is also the founder and driving force behind OccupyPeace.us/
Beam Defense, an alternative.
Caught one anti-Israel t-shirt….
leads off with “More PLATO Less NATO”
“The Schiller Institute is a German-based political and economic think tank founded by Helga Zepp-LaRouche, (the widow of American political activist Lyndon LaRouche)… The institute’s stated aim is to apply the ideas of the poet and philosopher Friedrich Schiller to what it calls the “contemporary world crisis.”
In July 2016, Zepp-LaRouche spoke at the first panel on the Think 20 Summit, which was organised by three Chinese academies and institutes…”
The producer/director of the film, 8:15 Hiroshima, From Father to Daughter” – J.R. Heffelfinger. spoke “…. giving voice to the voiceless and making the invisible, visible. ”
He promoted his film and shared that on Jan 24, 2023 “the Doomsday Clock was moved to 90 seconds before midnight. The closest it’s been since its creation in 1947. And quoted author John Hersey”What has kept the world safe from the bomb since 1945 has not been deterrence, in a sense of fear of specific weapons so much as it’s been memory; the memory of what happened at Hiroshima.”
Ending Part 1 so many opinions, statements, goals.
“The LaRouche movement has attracted devoted followers and developed some specific and elaborate policy initiatives, but has also been referred to variously as Marxist, fascist, anti-Semitic, a political cult, a personality cult, and a criminal enterprise.[
The LaRouche movement has often been considered a far-right political movement.[..] The Heritage Foundation called it “one of the strangest political groups in American history”, and The Washington Monthly called it a “vast and bizarre vanity press”.
Part 2 next:
Will they create that New Paradigm.
