Brazil President Is in New York to Address the UN on the Evils of US’s Invasion of Privacy

Brazil president Dilma RousseffBrazilian President Dilma Rousseff is already in New York, where she arrived this Monday morning. According to the tradition Rousseff will make the opening speech at the 68th United Nations General Assembly on the morning of September 24. The president has no official engagements during the day today.

One of the key messages she intends to deliver in her speech to the UN is  what she calls “a new governance against the invasion of privacy.”

The theme is a result of the spying allegations against the National Security Agency of the United States (NSA)m which led the Brazilian president to postpone the state visit she was supposed to make to Washington in October.

The reports were published last month based on data released by Edward Snowden, a former employee of a company providing service to the US government. There are indications that ordinary citizens from Brazil and other countries, as well as the Brazilian president, her aides and oil company Petrobras have been spied on.

Before the speech, scheduled for 9 am, she will be meeting with UN’s secretary general Ban Ki-moon.

Rousseff will be the first head of state to speak, followed by US president Barack Obama, with whom the Brazilian leader spoke last week about the allegations of spying and from whom she demanded explanations.

The two presidents will also talk about the conflict in Syria. Both Rousseff and Obama will condemn the use of weapons of mass destruction. The Brazilian president, however, should make it clear once again that Brazil is against the use of military force against the Syrian government.

Obama, on the other hand, seeks support for a military attack if the government of Bashar Al Assad doesn’t dispose of chemical weapons it has.

Tuesday afternoon, Rousseff should be at the UN for the first meeting of the High Level Forum on Sustainable Development, which gathers annually environment ministers and heads of state every four years.

The objective is to implement the goals set in the final document of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, Rio +20, titled The Future We Want. The countries pledged at the conference in Rio de Janeiro, in 2012, to set goals for development and to eliminate poverty in the world.

On Tuesday, the Brazilian leader will also meet with the president of Telefonica company, Cesar Alierta. No meeting with other heads of state are scheduled. On Wednesday, September 25, Dilma will talk at a seminar on opportunities in infrastructure in Brazil. After that, she should fly back to Brasília.

    The Beast is still at large
    Since George H. Bush was president, the US secret State agencies had played a double role until today when each person is constantly monitored by NSA and other agencies to report information not to the US Government but to feed with all data the embryo of a new superpower. An Anglo-Judaic group of Zionists, like a hidden parallel government, with George W. Bush still today at the head of secret services in the US, UK and Israel, is the destabilizing force behind most terror events and with classified information at disposal and a private army is planning what now would seem unthinkable to many. A War of Religion and chaos everywhere have been plotted, with 9/11 being the catalyst event, so that desperate people will soon invoke a New World Order without even knowing what that is. Not the protests or the violence in the streets could ever oppose such Plan relying on its long tentacles and the short memory of the people. TV, newspapers and other media will do the rest to confuse the people. After all, the surprise should not be totally unexpected. Whether you Believe in the fable of the Bible and the Book of Revelation with its AntiChrist or you simply understood what is going on, in the end, there is only one individual that you can not afford to keep out of sight: George W. Bush. Many are the marionettes already working for him, but, only after the grandiose funeral for the death of his father George H. Bush, the Beast will be ready with a new trick of the tail. The mosque Al Aqsa will be destroyed and a New World Order will have its pharaoh, this tyranny will enslave everyone to bring the smile only in the land of Israel, at least in the beginning. As extreme as it may seem the single alternative Solution is to drop all geographical borders and to have the global recognition of Equality for a new Humankind. It will take a new Awareness.

    Living in a Society of Fear
    The dystopian fantasies of yesteryear are now a reality. We’ve allowed the coming of an age where the civil liberties our forefathers fought so hard for are being eroded by the day. Freedom of Press, Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly are mere ghostly images of their original intent. We’ve woken up to an Orwellian Society of Fear where anyone is at the mercy of being labeled a terrorist for standing up for rights we took for granted just over a decade ago. Read about how we’re waging war against ourselves at http://dregstudiosart.blogspot.com/2011/09/living-in-society-of-fear-ten-years.html
