Urgent Message to Honduran Government Demanding Justice for Murdered Activist Berta Caceres and Freedom for Gustavo Soto
15 March 2016
To whom it may concern:
It has come to our attention that your government has been complicit in the murder of Honduran environmental activist Berta Caceres due to your government’s refusal to provide her with the police protection she needed and requested after having received multiple death threats from several sources – including agents of your government – due to her stalwart defense of indigenous peoples’ rights and her opposition to the construction of the Agua Zarca dam.
The sole witness to the murder of our sister Berta Caceres was Gustavo Soto, a Mexican environmental activist, who was almost shot to death during the murder of Caceres. Your government now seeks to hold Soto against his will, claiming that it is necessary in order to investigate the murder of Caceres; yet according to our information Soto has already given his testimony and wishes to leave Honduras due to his completely justified fear for his life if he remains in Honduras. He is now essentially being kept imprisoned in the Mexican Embassy by your government.
We demand that your government release our brother Gustavo Soto immediately and allow him to return to Mexico as he wishes. We also demand that you bring to justice the killers of Berta Caceres. Over one hundred environmental activists have been murdered since your government has come to power; this appears to be anything but coincidental. The workers of the world are not fooled by your government’s pretense at innocence. The workers of the world will be watching your future actions very closely; we already have reason to believe that elements of your government were deeply involved in the murder of our sister Berta Caceres and the attempted murder of our brother Gustavo Soto, as well as the murders of at least a hundred environmental activists. If anything untoward should happen to Gustavo Soto we and the entire working class of Honduras, the USA and the world will hold you, Sr. Presidente, personally, and your government, generally responsible. Read this Amnesty International communique if you need more information in regards to the Soto case http://wp.me/a2pWGj-LG.

350.org: “Rockefeller Brothers Fund”-Created Phony Environmentalist Organization Tricks Workers Into Participating In Fake Environmental Activism
The capitalist world is composed of frauds designed to rob the working class and keep the workers blind to the fact that they are being exploited 24/7/365, from the time they wake up in the morning until they go to sleep at night.
Most of these frauds are easy to spot, like the Obamacare swindle, which is nothing but a giant gift to Wall St. Puppet-in-Chief Barack Obama’s patrons running the US insurance, pharmaceutical and health care conglomerates.
Others are not so easy to detect right away because they hide their true sponsors behind several layers of bullshit knowing that only those who know how these things work – revolutionary Trotskyists like us – will tear the wrapping off the package until we get to its creamy shit center. Which we do – and then we show it to the world for all to enjoy. Or for the world to ignore, which is more usually the case, especially in dumber-than-dogshit USA.
Our pals over at Friends of WikiLeaks – Chicago have already exposed the Tor Project – that fake-secure onion-router network operation run from Day One by the Pentagon and financed to this day by the US Department of Defense, which the Executive Director of the Tor Project Andrew Lewman admitted to FoWL Chicago and defended in a pair of emails he sent to them, which they published in January 2013. Lewman lied and said that Tor doesn’t hide the fact that it’s sponsored by the US Defense Department and Department of State, but in the year since the issue was raised with him, Tor has buried the source of their funding deeper into the fake NGO SRI International, which actually acts as a cut-out for the US Defense Department:
Well, we all know by now that Tor is a piece of shit and, as Andrew Lewman helpfully told FoWL Chicago, Tor should not be trusted by anyone being targeted by a nation-state… which means that since the US Government is spying on every purposeful Internet communication on the planet, we’re all fucked if we use Tor.
Which sort of allows us to make an awkward segue to our latest discovery of capitalist-class-sponsored fraud: the very impressive NGO 350.org We ran across these scoundrels today while we were slapping the crap out of the US’ pro-capitalist trade-union misleadership who are busily pimping off thousands of young, bright-eyed and stupid trade unionists to the Democrats for yet another round of self-defeating “get-out-the-vote” campaigns for that warmongering, racist-cop-loving, pro-big-business anti-worker party. (The Democrats are even taking campaign donations from Wal-Mart this election cycle – but don’t tell the dummies working the AFL-CIO’s phone banks on behalf of the Democrats, they think that the Dems are the “party of labor”!)
Among the groups we follow on Twitter are many activists working on the demonstrations against the police murder of Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. Reading a conversation with one of them we saw this:
Initially we thought that these folks were part of the new political party in New Zealand led by Maori activists and Kim Dotcom. But we were mistaken. We looked closer, as is the practice of Marxists:
This looked semi-authentic so far… but look closer. Professional logo; sophisticated advertising techniques in photo and logo design… the whole thing is designed to get liberal youth to squeal with joy at finding an authentic, exotic ethnic “cause” that they can support with all the power of their tiny little hearts & minds between trips to the mall. And then we saw the 350.org web address. OK, lets zoom in for a closer look:
Well now this is starting to look like a lot of bogus front groups we’ve been seeing lately, like the DreamDefenders – a Democratic Party front group. We thought that only the commies did this kind of crap!
“OK so where do we start the search for the scumbags behind 350.org?” That is really what we were thinking at this point, no shit! We already KNEW that this was a bogus, pro-capitalist pressure organization, probably run by the Democratic Party. But where to find the proof? Well usually if you click on the link that says “About us” or… oh there it is… upper left-hand corner… “ABOUT”…
So we clicked on the “Board of Directors” link and…
BINGO! WE KNEW IT! THESE FUCKING SCUM! Using those Pacific Islanders for this deeply cynical scam!
Van Jones – Democratic party hack; Gus Speth – UN Development Programme, Yale University; Natural Resources Defense Council… and… what’s this? “Rockefeller Brothers Fund”?
Scroll down some more…
Well, that gives us just one or two more links to click on; first: the “Rockefeller Brothers Fund”… it’s got to be the same Rockefellers, right…?
This is absolutely repulsive… that these vicious pigs would use those doomed Pacific Islanders – doomed thanks to the global warming that is melting the polar icecaps and that will soon put all their islands under water… a phenomenon largely attributable to the burning of fossil fuels by the oil and steel companies, railroads and chemical producers owned or controlled by this family… as a front for this monstrous fraud!
So the lesson for today, children is: beware of capitalists bearing gifts of any kind; and always look behind the front man or woman to see where the money is coming from. If it isn’t coming directly from the working class then it isn’t a “grassroots organization”. There are many ways that the capitalist class can use you to further their criminal agendas: don’t fall for this crap!
Fellow wage and debt slaves: nothing less than a bona fide party of the working class should be acceptable to you; a political party funded entirely by dues and donations from the working class, not from capitalist enterprises or the Democratic or Republican party’s front men and women. EVERY POLITICAL ACTIVIST ORGANIZATION THAT IS NOT FUNDED ENTIRELY BY THE WORKING CLASS IS TIED TO AND RUN BY THE CAPITALIST CLASS IN SOME WAY! There are dozens of these political fraud organizations out there all over the world! Accept no substitutes for a revolutionary socialist workers party that has as its principal goal the overthrow of the capitalist system worldwide and its replacement with an egalitarian federation of socialist workers republics!
