OCA’s close ally, Rob Verkerk, Director of the International Alliance for Natural Health, warns us that we must move beyond current orthodoxies and oversimplifications, such as the typical narrative on global warming, and join together to scale up holistic, regenerative solutions that can actually solve our planetary and existential crises. As Verkerk writes:
“The multi-dimensional nature of existential threats, from the current covid-19 pandemic, climate change and food shortages, to migrations and now a war in Ukraine, has created a perfect storm for authoritarianism, tyranny and the disbanding of individual liberty and freedom of expression.
We are increasingly being forced to accept a particular narrative that defines both the nature and causes of the problems we face, as well as proposed solutions. Shades of grey are replaced by black and white. The narrative is delivered by slick, global public relations and media systems. Any dissent is quickly ‘fact-checked’ against the narrative (which may omit readily available facts) and the inevitable consequence is a polarization of views. Viewpoints, and messengers of those views, that are not 100% in accord with the narrative are marginalized, stigmatized or scapegoated. This polarization generates a pro-narrative, ‘in-group’, and a dissenting ‘out-group’. As Orwellian as it may be, being part of the outgroup means you are denied increasing rights and privileges. You will sooner or later become a victim of cancel culture. This very process incites social instability, which gives the power brokers ever more justification to impose centralized, systems of control on the populace.”

Russell Brand deconstructs Bill Gates’ latest pronouncements on how to stop the next pandemic. As Brand puts it:
“Bill Gates has called for a global surveillance team to spot future pandemic threats – and potentially enact lockdowns - and by coincidence, he’d be in charge.”

As we’ve pointed out recently, both Democratic and Republican politicians in Washington, and even at the state and local levels, seem to have lost their minds. They don’t seem to care about ordinary people, the working class, rural communities, the abysmal state of our food and farming systems, national and global poverty, the Constitution, the threat of nuclear and biological war, or the crisis of the environment and the climate. Their primary concern seems to be pleasing their wealthy donors and winning the next election by demonizing their opponents. The economy is crumbling. Only the wealthy and the major corporations are prospering. With the escalation of the war in the Ukraine, we are closer to nuclear war with Russia than we’ve ever been. So-called anti-war leftists like Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Illhan Omar just voted (along every single Democrat in the House, and most Republicans) to increase military spending and escalate the war in the Ukraine.
So-called partisans of “freedom” and vaccine/medical choice in the Republican party are calling for an end to women’s control over their bodies; an end to 200 years of granting political asylum to those fleeing violence and tyranny (unless they are white, blond-haired, and blue-eyed Ukrainians); and blathering on about there’s no such thing as an environmental and climate crisis.
Medical authoritarians like Bill Gates and Anthony Fauci are telling us to get ready for the next pandemic, which they admit will likely arise from a bioweapons attack or lab release/leak.
OCA, along with allied radical populists and libertarians believe the time has come to break up the duopoly of the Democratic and Republican parties, and break up the control of the billionaire class over our economy, politics, and our everyday lives. We need a new independent, grassroots-powered Third Party at the national level and we need a resurgence of non-partisan leaders and participatory democracy at the local and state levels. We are ready to work with any and all people of good faith, no matter how they’ve voted or not voted in the past. We don’t have to agree on every issue in order to work together. But we must build a new majority and regenerate, not just our food and farming systems, but our politics, health, and international relations as well.
We need your help, more than ever, to carry out this momentous task.

The Non-GMO Project reports:
“There’s still a lot of confusion about what a GMO is — and what it isn’t — due mainly to the speed at which the biotech landscape evolves. It’s not surprising. As science leaps forward, regulation lags behind… Meanwhile, new products continue to enter the market.
Traditional GMOs represented only a handful of crops, but they’ve had a massive impact on North American acreage and the food supply. Today, most conventional prepared foods in the grocery store contain ingredients and inputs derived from GMOs. Meanwhile, new GMOs are proliferating in the supply chain. The techniques used to produce them are cheaper and more accessible than transgenic technology, leading to a dramatic increase in the number of biotech developers exploring the field…”

Lockdowns and mandates are bad enough when they’re imposed by local officials. At least, they can’t hide from our protests. We can show up where they work and live, and we can vote them out in the next election. Things would be much worse if lockdowns and mandates were imposed from Geneva, Switzerland, by an unelected, corporate-controlled bureaucracy… and that’s exactly what the pharmaceutical companies are working on now. TAKE ACTION! Tell the U.S. delegation to the World Health Assembly that you oppose their amendments to the International Health Regulations! WATCH: On Friday night's Brave Nu Future broadcast, Amber King talked with Alexis Baden-Mayer and James Roguski about the problems with the U.S. amendments to the International Health Regulations.
Dr. Mercola reports:
“By now, you’ve probably heard that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has created a Disinformation Governance Board to oversee what information is and isn’t ‘truthful.’ This includes information relating to elections. It’s so incredibly Orwellian, you’d think it was pure fiction, yet here we are. It’s real.
This ‘Ministry of Truth’ will reportedly operate under and receive funding from the Center for Prevention Programs and Partnerships (CP3), created by President Biden to ‘curb radicalization in the U.S.’ It appears those in the Biden administration must have thought ‘1984’ was an instruction manual rather than a warning.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has quietly set up a Disinformation Governance Board to oversee what information is and isn’t ‘truthful.’
Heading up this new ‘Ministry of Truth’ is Nina Jankowicz, a ‘Russian disinformation expert’ who in her spare time sings show tunes about disinformation and erotic Harry Potter songs on TikTok.
Jankowicz is herself known for spreading disinformation. She called the Hunter Biden laptop story a ‘fairytale’ and ‘Russian disinformation,’ and she’s openly opposed to free speech and anti-censorship efforts.
In her book, ‘How to Lose the Information War,’ Jankowicz criticized Poland’s efforts to eliminate censorship of conservatives on social networks, and called for the U.S. government to regulate and conduct oversight of people who disagree with the Democratic party on Twitter.
Every dictatorship and autocracy has had a ministry of truth, a department of propaganda, and Biden has now joined them.”

Regeneration International (RI), OCA’s international sister organization, delivered a presentation at the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification COP (Congress of the Parties) #15 in Abidjan, Côte d’Ivoire on May 13.
The COP 15 theme, ‘Land. Life. Legacy: From scarcity to prosperity,’ was organized as a call to action to ensure that land and biodiversity, the lifelines of the planet, continue to support and benefit the present and future generations.
COP 15 in Africa brought together leaders from governments, the private sector, and civil society from around the world to discuss how we can move from catastrophic degeneration to regenerating our most precious assets: land, biodiversity, and the livelihoods of the three billion people on the Earth who live and farm in rural communities.
Precious Phiri (Zimbabwe), Oliver Gardiner (France) and André Leu (Australia) from Regeneration International gave presentations about the multiple benefits of organic and regenerative agriculture to restore and improve degraded arid and semi-arid landscapes. Their presentations featured the Billion Agave Project, an agave-based agroforestry and holistic livestock management system in Mexico pioneered by OCA, Via Organica, and RI, now attracting global interest, as well as organic and regenerative grazing practices deployed by RI affiliates across the world.

Lena, aka “Tessa Fighting Robots,” writes:
“This story is about the proposed new World Health Organization (WHO) pandemic treaty that can potentially eradicate national sovereignty as we know it. It is also about the banality of evil and the impact of our individual daily choices on the future generations and the history of the world.
In December 2021, the World Health Organization announced their plan to develop a new pandemic treaty.
The new treaty has the potential to undermine national sovereignty as we know it.
In 2009, the WHO changed the definition of the word ‘pandemic’ and then used the new definition to declare an influenza pandemic and activate massive vaccine purchasing agreements.
The definition of ‘public health’ is being used in a misleading manner to push for the Fourth Industrial Revolution.
Dr. Tess Lawrie was on a call with the WHO as a part of the public commentary submission process, and the call left her ‘shaken.’”
