There were more than 1,000 families living in that village,” Naweed Forotan, a spokesman for the Badakhshan governor, told Reuters. “A total of 2,100 people, men, women and children are trapped.”

So far, only eight people have been rescued, TOLOnew reports.

Rescue crews were on the scene but didn’t have enough equipment and were appealing for more shovels, the province’s governor, Shah Waliullah Adeeb said.

InquiringMinds – Ian R. Crane: Prepare Yourself For The Return Of The Alternative View Friday 16 May To Monday 19 May 2014 – 2 May 2014

Humanity vs Insanity: The Fight Back!
Time flies, and by May 2014 it will have been over four years since the last Alternative View conference. From 2008 to 2010, four ‘AV’ gatherings gave those assembled a look ‘over the fence’ at the reality which surrounds the bubble of propaganda and misinformation, which confronts us all on a day-to-day basis. The events were weekends away, a chance to swap information with like-minded people, to network, to form alliances, and were not just a series of lectures.

And so many years later, all those wise words, which seemed fantastical at the time, have become part of the awakened consciousness of those who have chosen to look beyond what we are told in the mainstream media.

ZeroHedge – Obama Assisted By Merkel In Explaining The Russian “Costs” – Live Webcast – 2 May 2014

ZeroHedgeTwo months after Obama first mentioned the “costs” to Putin should he continue to do what the Russian leader has been doing for, well, the past two months, namely copycatting how the US would act if in the exact same situation, Obama today will be assisted by Germany’s Angela Merkel on her first visit to D.C. in three years, to further reinforce the US deterrence idea of “costs” (perhaps to Germany in the form of a third of its gas imports being cut off?), just in case Obama alone can’t handle Putin. Somehow we doubt Russia will pay much attention – after all it has been revealed time and again that Russia has all the trump cards.

ZeroHedge – EU Commissioner Warns “Any ‘Sensible’ Person Should Oppose Further Russia Sanctions” – 2 May 2014

ZeroHedge(Lucas: Of course Olli you have EU elections coming up so say some well meant words you forget soon after the elections, right, hey Olli!)

Obama won’t be happy! “It would harm everybody, the Europeans and the Russians,” warned Olli Rehn, the European Commissioner for Economic Affairs, adding that “any ‘sensible’ European Union citizen should oppose further sanctions on Russia because of the economic cost for Europe.” As Merkel and Obama cozy’d up for discussions this morning, we can only imagine the promises being made if only she will support his crusade (which she clearly was unwilling to judging from the press conference). Perhaps she should check in with her nation’s CEOs (who have vociferously demanded no more sanctions) and, as Rehn acknowledges, the slowing Russian economy is already having a “negative impact” on Finland and Austria, and “that economic fallout probably will spread to Germany, Poland and the Baltic countries.”

ActivistPost – Water Liberty: How Innovation Trumps Privatization – 2 May 2014

Logo_activistpost-comThe World Bank joins Nestlé in wanting to privatize water, deeming it “extremist” to suggest that those born on this planet have a natural right to clean, potable water. Meanwhile, RT’s Abby Martin reports that the watchdog group Corporate Accountability International recently released a new analysis showing that:

Investing in private water does not extend access and is also counterproductive for economic development. By contrast, infrastructure investment, abandoned by the corporate sector, is where real benefit can be achieved: the World Health Organization estimates more than $10 of economic benefit from every $1 invested in water infrastructure systems.

Suzanne Lie – The Changing Realities Part 3 – The Arcturian Message – 2 May 2014

SuzanneLieTHE ARCTURIAN SPEAKS:

When Sandy and Jason were first beamed to the Lemurian settlement in Middle Earth their Lightbodies were 83% activated. Their lightbody activation was largely because they were bonded with each other, with their higher expressions of Mytria, Mytre and Mytrian.

However as they entered the beautifully decorated and highly attended the celebration given in their honor, they became intimidated and their consciousness dropped. Instantly, Mytre merged with Jason while Mytria merged with Sandy to assist them to adapt to the honor that was being bestowed on them. Continue reading
