The celebrated journalist John Pilger speaks at Sydney University about his new film he is shooting in the Pacific and Asia. Cathy Vogan filmed the speech on March 22, 2016, and co-hosted by Sydney University Resistance Club, the Centre for Peace And Conflict Studies and Green Left Weekly.
He very eloquently describes how propaganda hides the real agendas of the superpowers and the-not-so superpowers, agendas sucked up by the willingly blind and ignorant.
The Nuclear Age
He talks about the devastation to the Bikini Atoll by the United States between 1946 and 1958. An environmental catastrophe and a health disaster to the inhabitants, the effects of which are still felt to this day. Bizarrely, the Bikini Atoll has been inscribed on the World Heritage List by UNESCO. Why? The devastation of 60 years ago marked the dawn of the nuclear age.
Back then nuclear bombs were tested in the atmosphere with no concern for the effects on human health then, or for future generations who still suffer the consequences of the radiation so recklessly diffused across hundreds of miles.
The Threat To Russia and China
The real build up of troops and hardware in Ukraine, once part of the Soviet Union, and the propaganda war against China threatens the stability of the modern world. Then there is the provocation by the US over the airstrips that China is building in the South China Sea.
The mainstream media reports US and British propaganda without criticism or scrutiny. The peoples of the US, Europe, and Australia are being fed dangerous lies by their respective governments that can only result in disaster unless the people wake up.
I highly recommend John Pilger’s video, watch it and take a rest from the incessant propaganda dished up by the mainstream media.
