Why Bolivia & Peru Should Sue Merck & Coca Cola

Pizarro Kneels Before Mama Coca Just Before The Slaughter Of The Incas Begins

People of conscience rightfully condemn the Nazi looting of art and cultural artifacts from Jewish victims of the Holocaust, and from homes and museums around Europe. People also rightfully condemn the berserk destruction of cultural and historical treasures in Iraq and Afghanistan by ISIS and the Taliban.

There is a growing body of international law that condemns and demands reparations on the part of former colonial powers like Britain, France, Belgium and The Netherlands whose military and “explorers” looted cultural and historical treasures of Greece, Egypt, Iraq, India, Indonesia, Africa and elsewhere in their Empires. The Spanish are certainly near the top of any list of looters of cultural and historical artifacts with their centuries-long conquest and domination of the Indian civilizations of Latin America.

And of course it can hardly be disputed that the Americans top the list of looters with their genocide against Native Americans and blatant theft of their ancient homelands, along with widespread looting of their cultural and historical artifacts, desecration of their graves, and theft of their cultural heritage. When this history is combined with the destruction and enslavement of entire African civilizations, and the forced obliteration of not only whole families and tribes but whole histories, Americans are definitely at the top of any list of historical and cultural criminals.

All of the victims of these various exercises of colonial avarice, hatred and slaughter are at some stage in seeking reparations. The Greeks want their temples back from the British. The Egyptians want the bones and treasures of their ancient Kings returned. Native Americans are demanding the return of their sacred objects and the bones of their ancestors from the Smithsonian. The Iraqis who have seen their Mesopotamian heritage scattered to the winds for centuries are currently being victimized by a blow-dried reincarnation of Jim & Tammy Faye in the person of the “Christian” owners of the tacky little “Hobby Lobby” chain in the US that is charged with large-scale looting on ancient artifacts in the Middle East. These elaborately coiffed smiley-face Oklahomans of course deny everything, pleading that they had no idea that these little ole’ tiles were invaluable cultural artifacts.

Cultures worldwide are demanding the same of museums in France, Belgium and The Netherlands. The Chinese are demanding the return of cultural and historical treasures looted by the American-backed Chiang Kai Shek. American Black people are demanding reparations for the theft and brutalization of their families, cultures and history. Latin American cultures are demanding that Spain , Portugal and the Catholic Church return the wealth in gold, silver, culture and history stolen from them over the centuries of Colonial domination.

However, in the midst of all this worldwide outcry against theft of cultural and historical heritage by force and stealth, at least one enormous crime against Native People has been completely overlooked, and I am proposing that the people of Bolivia and Peru, who are the victims of this particular crime, organize and pursue legal remedy under the same body of international law that has begun to recognize the rights of other Native People worldwide.

The crime I am referring to is the theft of the Coca Plant by the European pharmaceutical industry that, since the 1840’s, has made hundreds of billions of dollars from the theft of this Sacred Plant of the Incas and has not paid one penny in reparation or shared any of the huge profits that this industry has enjoyed for over 150 years. Specifically, I am suggesting that Bolivia and Peru jointly sue the German Pharmaceutical company Merck, which was responsible for first looting Coca Plants from Bolivia and Peru and then extracting the alkaloid Cocaine from those plants, and then making Cocaine the core of the company’s fortunes as it grew into the globally dominant pharmaceutical giant of today.

The Coca Plant is indigenous to only one place in the world – the southern Andes – so Merck cannot claim that they took a plant that was readily available worldwide and simply exercised their scientific genius in producing Cocaine. The plants that Merck used to create mountains of gold from a few green leaves came from only one place, and were the cultural and historical heritage of only one People – the Native peoples who today live in poverty in Andes, remote from even a handful of the wealth so jealously guarded by the German pharmaceutical industry and others worldwide who profit from the cultural heritage of the Incas – companies like Coca Cola, who should also be named in any lawsuit for reparations brought by representatives of the Native People of Bolivia and Peru.

The art looted by the Nazis is being returned to the rightful owners under the law, and the families and descendants of those owners are rightfully being compensated. The stolen art, artifacts and bones of ancient civilizations in Greece, Egypt and elsewhere are gradually being pried loose from the talons of the museums erected by Colonial powers to display their loot. Even the American Smithsonian is finally, reluctantly recognizing that it has no right to make the corpses of Native Americans part of their “display”, and are, while doing a lot of foot-dragging, gradually returning the bones and cultural and historical loot stolen from the Native American people. And although there is enormous opposition among the elite and their toadies toward paying reparations to American Black people, at least there is some movement among American Black people themselves to reclaim parts of their stolen cultural and historical heritage.

So why shouldn’t Merck, Coca Cola and others that have profited from the theft of the heritage of the Incas be taken before the bar of international justice and stripped of at least a major portion of the profits that they have made from the theft of the cultural/historical heritage of the descendants of the Incas? The court of jurisdiction would also be responsible for assuring that the money recovered in the name of the descendants of the Incas was not re-looted by politicians in those countries, and instead went into a closely supervised non-profit international organization that was severely limited in the salaries it could pay and the administrative overhead it could charge.

I think that this is the right thing to do, and I think it should be done beginning now. Are you listening, President Morales? You have an historic opportunity to force the greedy capitalists of Merck, Coca Cola and other evil corporations to crawl on their knees dragging wagonloads of stolen wealth back to the people who are its rightful owners.

Just do it. Por favor.

Using Zika To Depopulate Coca/Opium Growing Regions

I was looking at a map of the spread of Zika virus the other day and something struck me as odd. I noticed that 100% of the Coca growing region in the Amazonian territories of Brazil, Colombia and Peru and the Opium Triangle in SE are flooded with the virus.

The global health authorities are wringing their hands over how this could have happened.

I happen to have a suggestion – look at covert US drug programs and I’ll bet you find both the funding and the research to validate that this is a CIA/DEA atrocity and is very deliberate. (Of course such info could only be obtained if you were a US senator and stayed out of hot tubs.)

Does it strike anyone else as odd that the core of Zika is devastating two regions in particular – the Coca growing regions of the Amazon basin and the SE Asian home of the Opium Poppy?

Imagine yourself a Coca farmer in the Colombian Amazon, or a Poppy grower in the hills of Laos. The US has been sending full-scale military warfare against you, your family, your village and your livelihood for decades, and you have always bounced back. Those American’s aren’t so tough, right.

Now suppose that all over the Amazon Basin or the Laotian hills sweet-looking (native) public health nurses begin showing up in villages. You are gathered together to hear the nurse who shows up in your village, and she begins by showing some truly terrible pictures of malformed infants. Everybody gasps. Mothers clutch their bellies. Fathers look disgusted. This, the nurse tells you, is what the Zika virus will do to your children, your grandchildren, and anybody else who stays within the infected area. Then she shows you a map of the infected area and there’s your village – right in the middle of the dead zone.

Then she tells you that in men the Zika virus nests in your balls, and when you have sex your partner gets infected – if she isn’t already infected by a mosquito bite. The women inch away from the men on the benches where they’re sitting. The men glance around nervously. There are a lot of shriveled penises in the audience.

In women, the Nurse explains. the Zika virus just circulates in the blood, seeking our rapidly-dividing tissues and generally lying in wait for the big feast – pregnancy. There is no escaping getting bitten and getting infected, the Nurse tells the villagers – the only way to ensure maximum survivability it for the entire village to be transported to a Zika-Safe Zone declared by the government.

In the distance helicopters are approaching. The villagers are told that they have ten minutes to decide whether to stay or go. They will have to leave everything behind – anything could be a hiding place. Those who want to go are sprayed copiously with a toxic cocktail and bundled onto the choppers.

When the choppers have disappeared the nurse climbs back in her US AID jeep and leave, as soldiers emerge from the brush and gun down and then burn everybody who didn’t leave.

It won’t matter. Nobody will ever discover their crime. This part of the Coca growing region, or the Opium Poppy growing region, will never be visited again. These areas will be uninhabitable for a very long time.

Too far-fetched? May I remind you of Agent Orange? What about Paraquat? US agencies have a long history of mass chemical murders in the name of their “War On Drugs” and the Zika Virus might just be the most effective way ever devised of de-populating drug-growing regions.

Of course it is getting just a teeny bit out of control, but bioweapons aren’t perfect. That’s why they have to be tested occasionally, like the Zika virus. (Which by the way is wholly owned, with a full 1947 patent, by the Rockefeller Foundation whose Siamese twin relationship with the CIA is beyond dispute.)
