Stealing a Nation

This is a report about about the people of Diego Garcia (a former colony of Britain) and how the 2000 some population of black people was betrayed by its government, the British government.

These people were living a peaceful life when the British government decided to deport them all unconditionally and hand the island over to the USA to be used as a MILITARY BASE!

Those who refused to leave were tortured, starved and whatever deed possible was done to evacuate them. They were then relocated in horrendous slums in Mauritius. Most of them died of hunger, disease, poverty or just depression. Whole generations uprooted and destroyed. All thanks to the righteous British and American governments.

This island today is used as a military base from where the Americans have launched attacks on Iraq, Afghanistan and other countries. (Source:Youtube)

Help save our planet

The number of Category 4 and 5 hurricanes has almost doubled in the last 30 years.

Malaria has spread to higher altitudes in places like the Colombian Andes, 7,000 feet above sea level.

The flow of ice from glaciers in Greenland has more than doubled over the past decade.

At least 279 species of plants and animals are already responding to global warming, moving closer to the poles.

Deaths from global warming will double in just 25 years -- to 300,000 people a year.

Global sea levels could rise by more than 20 feet with the loss of shelf ice in Greenland and Antarctica, devastating coastal areas worldwide.

Heat waves will be more frequent and more intense.

The Arctic Ocean could be ice free in summer by 2050.

These are just some one of the things that has happened or will happen in the near future. Global Warming is happening at a faster rate than we had anticipated. It's time to act. Help save our planet.
