A call to world citizens, nature rights before profits!

Resources such as Land and Beaches have been inherently political issues across the globe. Privatization of resources has led the world to speculate and create new trends as a response to global crisis’s. Political agendas worldwide is now more focused on massive beach and land grabbing operations. In order to secure themselves, countries and transnational companies are acquiring land and beaches in developing counties at an accelerated rate.

As from the 20th century, Mauritius has been facing constant challenges against the privatization of hectares of beaches allocated to foreign investors. These deals have not always had a win-win outcome but rather sparked neo-colonialism flares putting the livelihood of local population in jeopardy.
In 2016, the statistical segmentation of the Mauritian coast line is as follows;
43% of sea frontage by private bungalows and villas,
20% of coast line are occupied by hotels and golf areas,
and ONLY 10% are said to be public beaches.

‘Aret Kokin Nu Laplaz’; AKNL (Stop Beach Grabbing in English), a group of Mauritian activists, are voicing against beach privatization and its effects. On the 24th of August 2016, 6.9 hectares and nine hundred and forty square meters of beach (69940 m2) was withdrawn from the list of ‘ Public Beach ‘. This portion of beach described as PG Bel Air Public Beach (Pomponette/ Point aux Roches), situated in the South of Mauritius, is one of the very last coastal line which has preserved its wild and natural fauna and flora. Appreciated for its untouched beauty, locals and afar, PG Bel Air (Pomponette) has been a place of gathering for years by many.

The anecdote below among others, overthrows the saying of the Vice-Prime Minister and Minister of Housing and Lands of the Republic of Mauritius, Showkutally Soodhun as to what this beach is not frequently visited by people and too dangerous for swimming thus appropriate for hotel construction, namely a transnational South African company, the Pelangi Resorts.

Recently after activists of AKNL have gathered support from local citizens, the CEO of Pelangi Resorts gave an interview in L’Express, a local newspaper, stressing that the choice of the privatization of PG Bel Air Beach (Pomponette), is justified as hotels keep beaches in better conditions and clean as opposed to Mauritian citizens.

Planted by a Mauritian some 20 years back, this Tournefortia argentea known as ‘ le veloutier ‘‘has a story behind that everyone should be aware of. This is the legacy left behind by a man for the Mauritian nation!
‘Baz ti pie ‘ as this man lovingly describes ‘ le veloutier’, is the living witness of years of family gatherings and unfading memories! This is not ‘The Pelangi tree on St Felix’ as described and marketed by the promoters unaware of the Mauritian footprint! This veloutier is a symbol of an ecological resistance against time, natural calamities and prejudice; becoming a symbol of emotional attachment!
‘ Le veloutier’ itself answers to Miranda Hartzenberg Ceo of Pelangi the CEO of Pelangi to how Mauritians care, value and show respect for their natural assets, our PG Bel Air, Pomponette beach
!

Existing beach and land rights are being continually violated by the authorities. Deals between transnational companies are secretly negotiated without the least consideration for the natural birth rights of Mauritians to enjoy their national heritage. High saturation of beach hotels has eroded and endangered the fragile marine eco-system.

‘Aret Kokin Nu Laplaz’ (AKNL), is inviting citizens of the world to participate in advocating land and nature birth rights as this is not only a Mauritian issue but a global phenomenon.
On the 23rd of October 2016, we are organizing a massive citizens’ picnic for a massive campaign ( Piknik Sitwayein ) on PG Bel Air beach ( Pomponette ) as from 12: 00 to 16:00.

As per the requests of foreign activists and Mauritians living abroad, we will also be launching a Facebook and Twitter campaign as from the 23rd of October 2016. The online community is invited to join us.

Thank you for your support.

FRANCE has for its name, the contrary of Liberty and Fraternity practice.

Those brainwashed by westernisation, for the sake of your learnt values and culture, put it all in the trash to please, settle down in your favorite western countries expecting them to treat you as their very own. Best wishes and keep dreaming eye wide open, as you never will be part of them !

If burkini, burka (though i am quite confuse about it’s use during warmer seasons), hijab, churidar or any Indian attires ain’t accepted in France and where anyone is easily tagged as terrorist or said to be indulged in any other forms of extreme radicals, why claiming to be a so open minded civilization with principle concerns ; ‘ Freedom of choice and practice ‘?

Why not using the term ‘terrorist’ for your army and those in military uniforms for killing, bombing and terrorising millions of lives around the globe every year?

 

Oh this would be outrageous for me speaking as such!

And why not go further by just banning Christian, Jews religious clothing?

Oh that will be an insult to your religious practices!

And why not being a genius by removing all safety attires used by chronically and medically ills ; to protect themselves from sunlight rays ( Xeroderma Pigmentosum condition ), cold intolerance ( cold urticaria condition ), Alergies ( Aquagenic urticaria ) ect?

Oh stupid people, you were so dumb that this didn’t cross your mind?

Want to sum it up to religion and cultural practice, so let me being with the french culture itself. What are your religious practices, with no offense, which preache you to engage in unnecessary wars and mass murder in the third world countries? How civilised and cultured you are as a nation, to create unrest, destruction and traumatise a whole as a population?

Oh fools, don’t you get it? The root to the culture of terrorism is not terrorism, but you world class war mongers countries trying in all ways to be greedily colonists and thieves serving yourself in others’ natural reserves!
How religious and cultured are you, that you insulted the real meaning of life?

I’m not a Muslim and cohabits really well with my muslim friends and their community , nor am I an extreme radical as i cause no harm; it’s just a matter perceptions and non-prejudices, nor a terrorist but simply a world citizen whose concerned about our world’s mental health.
High time for the globe to grow wise ! Get love to be your religion, practice and culture ☮ ✌

It does not take religion to practice terrorism,
It does not take cultural attachments to become a terrorist,
It takes oppression, hatred and ill intentions to do what terror does worst!

30 March 2013 and the age of uncertainty

That’s us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every citizen, every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there- on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot.

Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the Universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity, in all this vastness, there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves.

The Earth is the only world known so far to harbor life. There is nowhere else, at least in the near future, to which our species could migrate.

Visit, yes. Settle, not yet. Like it or not, for the moment the Earth is where we make our stand.

It has been said that life is a humbling and character building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.

If this is how you celebrate ‘ Independence day ‘, then Hip Hip Hooray… MAURITIUS

Hip Hip Hooray… Today is the day where the sale of each parcel of this country land is for sale and gift vouchers…’Glory to thee, Motherland,OR motherland of mine’, offers unlimited to foreign contractors be it the sea, beaches, lands, rivers and why not the sea port.

Hip Hip Hooray… Today is the day where your Prime Minister uses no reading glasses upon a successful medical surgery in India. ‘Sweet is thy beauty,
Sweet is thy fragrance’, where thousands countrymen are laboratory rats, where mothers mourn their lost child due to the Mauritian Medical Hub services.

Hip Hip Hooray… Today is the day where hundreds of Mauritians are denied their national holiday due to profit and money making for some private sectors. But don’t worry, ‘Around thee we gather ‘, they will have a national holiday off when France and other countries will be celebrating their national day.

Hip Hooray… Today is the hippocratic day. In 365/366 days, its specialty is where many comes together ‘ As one people, As one nation ‘ and the rest of the 364/365 days, it is a ‘my’ community / religion thing, where you are employed and professionally respected upon the only meritocracy rules of ‘to which political party and views you adhere to.’

Hip Hip Hooray… Today is the day to celebrate liberty, where a vice vice prime minister/ minister value the Mauritius, ‘In peace, justice and liberty’, to be on the target list by participating to international military gathering in the quest of immortality, where an ex prime minister, ex minsters and actual ministers implicated in in legal cases roam free without legal sanctions.

Hip Hip Hooray.. Today, celebrate your independence day, raise your four coloured flag, sing the national anthem loud and keep your right hand near hear and say ‘Beloved country, may God bless thee
For ever and ever.’, where the rich gets richer and the poor dies poorer, where justice is meant only for classy coats, where liberty of expression is a threat, where crime is an everyday thing and where you fail as a nation!

When you all fail as a nation, this is what you will reap.

All of a sudden Mauritius is awaken from a long sleep and feels so concern of reality facts of criminal activities. This is the time when, journalism forgets all about what is called a moment of privacy just to sell their cabbage leaves for sensationalism. A sheep society calling upon capital punishment. People being all of a sudden so concerned about social values and morals. Everyone is so shocked, yet I have a sense of deja vu about what happened in Camp de Masque Pave, yet many cold murder cases are still unsolved, yet we are living the social doom and yet the dodos will go back to sleep after a while.

If capital punishment was the answer to all, guess what since long the Mauritian sheepful society would have been extinct. If human rights are the base of all, upon violated one should work his/her butt off to gain back what he violated.

Been four years now that i worked and got merits upon 2 rehabilitation programs based on the Canadian and American soil. Still being a novice, yet my initiatives wasn’t left unheard. Back in 2012, when i was working on my very first mini project to tackle the core issue of domestic violence, the concern ministry turned me down and guess what, this very program is now being implemented in several departments of the Canadian, France and American society.

Nothing to beat the drums about, as my own country fails to the core. Who is to be blamed for ? It’s YOU and me. When you all fail as a nation, this is what you will reap.

However gutted i might be about the sheepy Mauritian society, this time I gonna whip arses to get me loud and clear.

Peace is not guns, grenades, cannons and destruction!

The then and only terrorists are those foreign ‪governments along with their ‪‎military forces poking noses into other nation business.
The atrocities not render public are those committed by so called peace maintaining countries.
Let’s be honest, who are those governments who follow all ‪human right standards? ‪‎UK / ‪US engaging in ‪‎racist killing and barbaric torture of foreign prisoners?, ‪China/ ‪‎Korea where right to information is fully controlled?, ‪‎India where corruption is in all areas? , ‪Israel where killing of innocent ‪Palestinian is a fun game?, ‪Saudi Arabia who wins it all for the most disgusting in regards to human rights respect, Japan, France the puppet of all false flag, Russia, and so on?
Are those baboon governments who gonna stand up for your human rights by overthrowing governments around this ‪‎globe while they terribly fail to have their citizens rights respected?
Stop invading others and clean your mess first!
