Video: Let Us Free Ourselves From the Virus of War

International Conference on the 75th anniversary of the Liberation of Italy and the End of World War II organised by the Italian Committee No War, No Nato and Global Research.

The great Italian journalist Giulietto Chiesa passed away a few hours after the realization of this Conference.

His last words (Panel 4 and Conclusion) focussed on Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Information, and Freedom for Julian Assange.

“It is essential to join all our forces together, which are significant, “not so small” but there is a fundamental flaw: that of being divided, unable to speak with a single voice. We need an means or an instrument to speak to the millions of citizens who want to know.”

This was Giulietto Chiesa’s Appeal, an act in solidarity pointing to the need to break down social divisions and establish a grassroots movement, nationally and internationally.

His last words were confirmed by the fact that, immediately after the streaming, the online conference was “obscured” because the following content had been identified by the so-called YouTube community as “inappropriate or offensive to some audiences.” That’s what is commonly referred to as Censorship.

In 1968, Democrats rejected the popular peace-and-justice movement campaign of Eugene McCarthy for the safer and more predictable establishment-friendly candidacy of Hubert Humphrey. Then they lost to Richard Nixon.

The CIA has for decades armed right-wing death squads and trained them „to kidnap, assassinate, blackmail and dupe civilians.“ (Even The Washington Post itself admitted this.) The CIA should be abolished. It would be a huge step toward actual world peace.

She added that there are two other ways to launch negotiations — either by adopting a U.N. General Assembly resolution or having a country begin the process, as Canada did for the land mine treaty and Norway did for the treaty banning cluster munitions.
