United States Terrorism in the Sudan (by Nafeez Mosaddeq Ahmed) →

The Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory in Khartoum North, Sudan, was constructed between 1992 and 1996 with components imported from the United States, Sweden, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, India, and Thailand. It was officially opened on July 12, 1997.

The industrial complex was composed of around four buildings. It was the largest pharmaceutical factory in Khartoum and employed over 300 workers, producing medicine both for human and veterinary use.

The factory was destroyed in 1998 by a missile attack launched by the United States government, killing one employee and wounding eleven. Critics of the attack have estimated that up to tens of thousands of Sudanese civilians died throughout Sudan as the supply of necessary drugs was cut off. The U.S. government stated several reasons for its attack:
- Retaliation for the 1998 United States embassy bombings against the U.S. embassies in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya.
- The alleged use of the factory for the processing of VX nerve agent.
- For alleged ties between the owners of the plant and al-Qaeda.

These justifications for the bombing were disputed by the owners of the plant, the Sudanese government, and other governments. Alleged evidence used by the USA to justify the attack was later confirmed to be false.

Haha this is so good

Actually, I was 13, but I finally managed to quit after 20+ years. I will be cigarette free for 2 years on September 5 of this year!

TORCHES OF FREEDOM
During the twenties, it was considered indecent (and in some places even an arrestable offense) for women to smoke cigarettes in public, leading many flappers and early feminists to light up on the street as an act of civil disobedience.
While a few cigarette companies were tentatively advertising to women, Edward Bernays encouraged ATC to commit to the growing women’s movement to an unprecedented extent, capping the openly political ad campaign with a stunt where he recruited carefully-selected female smokers (in Bernays’ words, “while they should be good looking, they should not look too model-y”) to take prominent places in New York’s Easter Sunday Parade, smoking their so-called “Torches of Freedom.” Carefully seeded press releases, magnified by the support of NYC feminists, resulted in an enormous amount of free publicity for Lucky Strikes.

Rachel Aviv: The Scientist Who Took on a Leading Herbicide Manufacturer →

fromthegardenofedendale:

Cliff notes for how big business discredits genuine science with science-for-hire…  Fascinating must read for our world of pointed disinformation campaigns.

The P.R. team suggested that the company “purchase ‘Tyrone Hayes’ as a search word on the internet, so that any time someone searches for Tyrone’s material, the first thing they see is our material.” The proposal was later expanded to include the phrases “amphibian hayes,” “atrazine frogs,” and “frog feminization.” (Searching online for “Tyrone Hayes” now brings up an advertisement that says, “Tyrone Hayes Not Credible.”)
