This is the epilogue of a drama knotted on November 14, 1956, when Fernand Iveton, member of the PCA, worker turner in the gas factory of Hamma also called "the Stream" goes to action to bring his actions into line with his convictions. To help his Algerian brothers in the fight they have started for independence, he decides to place a bomb near the gasometer at an hour when the factory would be deserted, thus avoiding making victims. But the explosive device placed in a cupboard is discovered by the little chefs Oriol and Carrio, too happy to denounce the CGT delegate. Iveton is immediately arrested, taken to the police station, tortured, he comes out black with blows and electric burns. At the end of a trial quickly dispatched, where he will have to defend only two lawyers appointed, he who neither killed nor injured anyone, the young activist of 31 years is sentenced to death. It is then that the last scene of a state crime will play out where President René Coty, after having hesitated for a long time, refused pardon on the orders of the Minister of State, Keeper of the Seals, in charge of justice , François Mitterrand, like this one refused that of 45 other Algerian death row inmates. In 1965, François Mitterrand became the sole candidate of the left for the presidential election. This story remains to be written.

This past Sunday, April 17th, a dispute between Iran and the U.S. occurred over the U.S.’ decision to increase its military presence in Caribbean and Eastern Pacific waters, with the purported reason being a counter-narcotics campaign. Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif wrote to the UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres this past Sunday, that the real purpose for this move by the U.S. is to “intervene and create disruption in the transfer of Iran’s fuel to Venezuela.” In the same letter, Zarif expressed concern over “the United States’ intention to consider dangerous, unlawful and provocative measures against Iranian oil tankers engaged in perfectly lawful international commerce with the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela.”

In Part 1, we left off in our story at the SIS-CIA overthrow of Iran’s Nationalist leader Mohammad Mosaddegh in 1953. At this point the Shah was able to return to Iran from Rome and British-backed Fazlollah Zahedi, who played a leading role in the coup, replaced Mosaddegh as Prime Minister of Iran. Here we will resume our story.

Besides revealing how the Truman White House and military sabotaged the first movie about the atomic bomb, from MGM, my new book, The Beginning or the End explores other key nuclear-related events of that crucial year of 1946. Among the most important: the start of U.S. nuclear blasts in the Pacific, which would fuel the coming arms race even as it imperiled natives, witnesses, sailors and others thousands of miles away with the radioactive fallout they produced. Here is an excerpt on the evil US military plans for moving the natives of Bikini to a far harsher new home in advance of the first test, which was set off 74 years ago next week.

21 years ago, on June 10, 1999, the NATO campaign against Serbia ended after 78 days of bombing. We still don`t know exactly the number of victims, civilian and military, nor the amount of damage and it would be difficult to say who actually "won" the bloody mess. But the bombing of Serbia was a turning point for many reasons. In 1991, the collapse of the Soviet Union marked the end of the "cold war" and gave rise to expectations of a "peace dividend" once the old enemy of the West had folded out. Needless to say, that never happened. It appeared clear with the Serbian campaign that saw the whole Western world allied against a single state of less than 8 million inhabited.

So huge was the £20 million the Government spent in 1833 to reimburse the rich owners of slaves, that it took the taxpayer 182 years to pay it off. The information was revealed by the Treasury under a Freedom of Information request – but when officials decided to tweet out the revelation, the way they did it sparked such a furious backlash they quickly deleted the tweet. The Treasury confirmed when the UK Government abolished slavery and banned people from owning slaves in Britain or on Britain’s colonies anywhere in the world, those slave owners received compensation.

The Australian High Court has ruled that correspondence between the Queen and the Governor-General of Australia, her viceroy in the former British colony, is no longer “personal” and the property of Buckingham Palace. Why does this matter? Secret letters written in 1975 by the Queen and her man in Canberra, Sir John Kerr, can now be released by the National Archives – if the Australian establishment allows it. On November 11, 1975, Kerr infamously sacked the reformist government of prime minister Gough Whitlam, and delivered Australia into the hands of the United States.

By John Pilger - On November 11, 1975, Gough Whitlam, then Prime Minister of Australia, was to inform Parliament about the secret CIA presence in his country, by day’s end, he was out of a job.

Today, Australia is a vassal state bar none: its politics, intelligence agencies, military and much of its media are integrated into Washington’s “sphere of dominance” and war plans.

In a recent paper entitled ‘Tomorrow’s Arctic: Theatre of War or Cooperation?’ I introduced readers to the US-Russian grand design which shaped not only the sale of Alaska in March 1870 to the USA for $7.5 million, but also Russia’s involvement in the American Civil War as Czar Alexander II arranged the deployment of Russian military fleets to San Francisco and New York. Even though President Lincoln and Czar Alexander II were both known as great reformers and emancipators for their common commitment to free slaves and serfs, both leaders were assassinated before their grand visions could come to fruition. In this article, I would like to present another chapter of this forgotten history: The creation of modern Canada in as a confederation designed explicitly to prevent the inevitable construction of a Russian-American rail connection through the Bering Strait in the wake of the Civil War.
