“….. Here is the prediction: China will turn North Korea loose soon. The alliance will dissolve, or become stale. There will be political upheaval in China. Not a coup and not a revolution. Within the inner circles of that which you call Chinese politics, there will be a re-evaluation of goals and monetary policy. Eventually, you will see a break with North Korea, allowing still another dictator to fall and unification to occur with the south. ….”

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Indigenous peoples threatened by resource exploitation

Deutsche Welle, 2 July 2012

A new report on minorities and indigenous people warns that the global 'intensification' in the exploitation of natural resources is leading to mounting conflicts for the world's 370 million indigenous people.

The report for 2012 by the London-based human rights group, Minority Rights Group International (MRG), says indigenous peoples "in every region of the world" face the risk of being "driven from their land and natural resources."

The land and resources are all "vital for their livelihoods, their culture and often their identity as a people," Vital Bambanze, chair of the UN Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, said in the report.

Coal mining projects have disturbed
the lives of ethnic Mongolians
From the Batwa of the Great Lakes region in Central Africa, and the Endorois and Ogiek in Kenya, to hill tribes in northern Thailand, Bedouin in the Middle East and Uighurs in China's Xinjiang province - all "struggle to maintain their cultural integrity against their respective governments' desire to put national development first," Bambanze said.

Unprecedented demand for resources in Asia

The report says the unprecedented demand for natural resources across Asia is "feeding ethnic conflict and displacement and is a severe threat to the lands, livelihoods and the way of life of minorities and indigenous people."

Carl Soderbergh, an MRG spokesperson, warns the situation faced by indigenous groups is deteriorating world-wide.

"In terms of the trends globally what has been happening over the last decade is that there's been an intensification of the exploitation of natural resources pushing into areas populated by minorities and indigenous peoples," Soderbergh told DW. 

Many indigenous communities have
their land confiscated
In regions such as Latin America, the issues faced by communities centered on mining and logging, in North America on tar-sands mining, there were conflicts over wind farms and iron ore mining in the Arctic, while in Africa, indigenous communities faced the leasing of thousands of hectares of land for corporations or foreign governments.

"All governments are chasing a dominant development paradigm n which today minorities and indigenous peoples don't really have a place and that is a problem," he said.

In China, investment in mining has forced herders off traditional grazing lands and ancestral villages in regions such as Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, as well as in Tibet.

In Vietnam, over 90,000 people, mostly ethnic Thai, were relocated to make way for the Son La hydropower plant with Vietnamese scientists saying many were left without access to agricultural land.

Indiginous peoples around the world face displacement

Meanwhile, in Cambodia's Prey Lang Forest region, home to the Kuy indigenous people, official land grants of tens of thousands of hectares of forest for mineral extraction, timber and rubber plantations have forced many people to give up their traditional livelihoods.

Conflict has also been evident in Indonesia in areas of increased palm oil plantation development and the mining industry in Papua.

Investment from China seen as a driver for economic growth

Nicole Girard, the rights group's Asia Program Director, says levels of conflict over land is increasing in South East Asia, driven by foreign investment, including from China.

"It's definitely increasing, the resource exploitation in indigenous people's territories; in Southeast Asia, the economies of Laos and Vietnam are opening to more foreign investment, including lots of Chinese investment and including Burma," Girard said.

Girard says the increased fighting in Myanmar's ethnic controlled Kachin State over the past year is directly linked to conflict over resource investment largely by Chinese businesses. 

Indigenous communities are also
threatened by climate change
Myanmar, led by the military-backed civilian government of President Thein Sein, has been undergoing reforms over the past year to improve its human rights situation. But Naw San, General Secretary of the Students and Youth Congress Burma (Myanmar) says despite steps to peace talks with ethnic groups in Myanmar, the development process is still not inclusive.

"We are still worried that, like in the past, investment and development projects will be dealt with by the central government and that there will be (no real) engagement or consultations with the process on the ground," Naw San told DW.

"What the ethnic (communities) need now is national equality," he said.

Two thirds of Indigenous People live in Asia

The Asia Indigenous People's Pact (AIPP) Foundation, in a separate report, noted that two thirds of the world's 370 million self-identified indigenous peoples live in Asia.

And those people, according to the AIPP Foundation, "are currently marginalized and subordinated economically, politically and culturally."

They are "overrepresented among the poor, illiterate, malnourished and stunted," it said.

AIPP's report says for many in the region "militarization, (the) plundering of resources, forced relocation, cultural genocide and discrimination in everyday life are common experiences."

The report pointed to the construction of dams in Asia, which since the 1960s, has led to "massive displacements, loss of livelihoods, and food insecurity of indigenous peoples in India, the Philippines, Laos and Malaysia."

Bernice See, an AIPP coordinator, said governments give priority to economic ventures and investments over people's rights. 

See called on Asia's governments to respect the UN's Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous peoples and the provisions calling for the "free prior of informed consent from any development that comes into their territory."

"These governments should have the moral obligation to respect these agreements. The declaration should be used as a framework for dealing with indigenous people," she said.
