Revealed: the role of the west in the runup to Srebrenica’s fall

Role of west revealed i Bosnia warThe fall of Srebrenica in Bosnia 20 years ago, prompting the worst massacre in Europe since the Third Reich, was a key element of the strategy pursued by the three key western powers –Britain, the US and France – and was not a shocking and unheralded event, as has long been maintained.

Eight thousand Bosnian Muslim men and boys were killed over four days in July 1995 by Bosnian Serb death squads after they took the besieged town, which had been designated a “safe area” under the protection of UN troops. The act has been declared a genocide by the war crimes tribunal in The Hague, and the Bosnian Serb leaders Radovan Karadžic and General Ratko Mladic await verdicts in trials for directing genocide.

Canada’s latest oil extraction methods put new pressures on environment

Canada oil extractionehind the gates of the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range, guarded by military personnel, Brian Grandbois sometimes goes hunting for moose. As a member of the First Nations community that used these grounds for generations, he has rare access to the 1.6-million-acre site. In the 1950s, this land was closed to visitors when the Canadian government converted it into a bombing range. But today, the military is not the only tenant here. In recent decades, the eastern part of the range has become home to the operations of five major oil companies.

Grandbois once worked on the oil sites as a technician, monitoring the flow of steam and tar from the vast network of pipes. But five years ago he quit over what he saw. The land, which he recalled from his childhood as “beautiful, wild and free,” had been transformed. “It was terrible. Roads all over the place, oil and gas facilities all over the place,” he said. “It’s ruining the land. I don’t want to be part of the destruction of the planet.”
