DEEP SEA MINING EXPLORATION IN VANUATU
HAVE AFFECTED 50,000 CLIMATE CHANGE REFUGEES

Article 7 (d) Constitution of the Republic of Vanuatu, “Every person has the following fundamental duties to himself and his descendents and to other … (d) to protect Vanuatu and to safeguard the national wealth, resources and environment in the interests of the present and the future generations.”

Deep sea Mining (DSM) is an emerging industry of the Pacific region to commence by 2014 pending on the court case of the government of Papua New Guinea against Nautilus Minerals on the copyrights ownership of mining technology of Nautilus Minerals SOLWORA 1 project through arbitration of United Nations Commission of International Trade Law to be held in Sydney, Australia on 26 August 2013.

When the world is informed respectively by their media that Deep sea Mining exploration is carried out in the Western Pacific Ocean as part of the last gold-rush of humankind, the affected nations remain in the darkness. Pastor Wendy HIMFORD, founder of Holy Church of All Nations, in the remote archipelago of around 80 islands of the Republic of Vanuatu, is the first citizen of Vanuatu to denounce that there was likely illegal and criminal scientific and commercial experimental deep sea mining in the maritime Exclusive Economic Zone of Vanuatu two years ago through social network and local papers.

As a result of Pastor Wendy HIMFORD’s infant but powerful public awareness, the government of Vanuatu hosted one-day information workshop jointly organized by SOPAC with ten stakeholders in Vanuatu in May 2012 and again one-week Pacific regional training workshop with around twenty stakeholders of the civil society in Vanuatu from 10-14 June 2013 for SOPAC to officially declare that experimental deep sea mining has been carried out for forty years throughout the Pacific and in Vanuatu.

I- GOVERNMENT OF VANUATU AND MINING COMPANIES BREAKING THE RULE OF LAW
Honorable Ralph Regenvanu, minister of land, geology and mine, commanded the government of Vanuatu shall apply the Precautionary Principles of 1982 United Nations Convention of the Law of the Sea (LOSC) for Deep Sea Minerals at his opening speech of the SOPAC Pacific DSM regional training workshop on Social Impact of Deep Sea Mineral Activities on Monday 10 June 2013 while acknowledging the past governments have issued 145 DSM exploration licences (Figure 1) and 3 oil exploration licences without any prior consultation with the people of Vanuatu.

Pastor Wendy HIMFORD as a participant of the SOPAC workshop, said that the government of Vanuatu had failed to apply the Precautionary Principle which is to say, to mandate mining companies to provide a preliminary Environment Impact Assessment of possible impact from exploration prior to granting 145 deep sea mining exploration and prospecting licences to Nautilus Minerals and Neptune Minerals since 2010.

Where there is a risk of serious or irreversible damage to human health or the environment, precautionary action should be taken irrespective of the lack of absolute certainty with regard to its causes and impact. Rather than presume that a specific activity or product is safe until proven dangerous, a process which takes substantial time and resources, the Principle places a presumption in favor of protecting the environment and public health. This switch of presumption places the burden of proof or the responsibility for demonstrating safety and preventing harm on those undertaking potentially harmful activities.

When it is true that 1986 Mines and Minerals Act [cap 190], under which DSM exploration licences are granted to contractors, no Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) is required, contractors have the obligation under the 2002 Environment and Conservation Act to provide a mandatory preliminary Environment Impact Assessment before any exploration activity shall start and especially any activities that could affect coastal dynamics or result in coastal erosion, result in pollution of water resources, affect any protected, rare, threatened or endangered species, its habitat or nesting grounds, and contamination of land, endanger public health, affect air quality and result in the unsustainable use of renewable resources.

As for the 3 oil exploration licences, the contractor is subject to Section 32, 33 and 34 of the 1993 Petroleum (Exploration and Production) Act to provide an EIA to be approved by the Commissioner. Again, the government of Vanuatu and the contractor have failed to conduct a preliminary EIA and to consult coastal communities of Vanuatu that could be affected by such offshore exploration.

Both the government of Vanuatu and the mining and oil companies have violated the rule of law, indeed the UN international laws and national laws. When affected communities progressively understand the negative environmental and health impacts of deep sea mining exploration, they have just started to raise their concerns after 40 years of experimental deep sea mining. Pastor Wendy HIMFORD said that the government of Vanuatu, scientific institutions and companies shall all be legally and financial liable for any damages engineered by scientific experiments and commercial exploration of deep sea mining activities till today.

II – GEOHAZARDS RISK AGAINST COMPENSATION TO DAMAGES
Minerals and in particular sulfides (gold, silver, zinc) are formed by heated seawater from volcanic rocks along fracture tectonic and most seismic zones of planet Earth and indeed along the Pacific belt of fire (Figure 2). Sulfides are formed through active hydrothermal vents and nearby active subaerial and submarine volcanoes. According to Graham Shorten geologist’s perspective, deep sea mining drilling is therefore the highest geohazards risk venture exposing people, buildings and infrastructure at risk causing loss of life, health injury, damage to property and displacement of climate change refugees. Geohazards include earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions, island collapses and tsunamis.

Ten days after Nautilus Minerals was granted prospecting licences in the Coriolis Trough as of 01 August 2010, there was a strong earthquake M 7.5 at Port-Vila on 10 August 2010. Again, in 2011, there was a series of strong earthquakes above M 7.0 at Port-Vila. A sudden increase of strong destructive earthquakes above M 7.0 including the sudden volcanic eruptions of inactive volcanoes and inactive submarine volcanoes and tsunami alerts topped Vanuatu as the most dangerous country of the world in 2011.

Pastor Wendy HIMFORD said that business properties of Port-Vila were damaged by all these earthquakes engineered directly or indirectly by intensive Deep Sea Mining exploration and that the government of Vanuatu and the contractors shall be liable for damages to property and pay compensation for disturbance of rights according to section 74.1 of 1986 Mines and Mineral Act.

III – CONTAMINATION OF COASTAL FISHERIES AND INJURY OF PUBLIC HEALTH
In the same time, these active hydrothermal vents are highly toxic and radioactive (Figure 3). Deep sea mining active hydrothermal vents simply release heavy metals and radioactivity throughout the sea, contaminate the deep sea marine habitat that consequently poison the food chain, coastal fisheries including deep sea fisheries such as tuna and injure public health with non-communicable diseases such as stroke, cancer and respiratory diseases (Figure 4).

Simultaneously, heavy toxic metals contaminate the seafloor, underground water resources which affect soil erosion and contaminate drinkable water. Coastal communities nearby Deep sea mining exploration are therefore exposed to food insecurity and become climate change refugees.

Pastor Wendy HIMFORD said that environmental impacts of Deep sea Mining are fatal and devastative at the scientific exploration stage and have gained momentum for the past three years when commercial exploration licences have been granted. Pastor Wendy HIMFORD is urging the minister of land, geology and mines of the Republic of Vanuatu to suspend all Deep Sea Minerals and oil exploration licences and to conduct periodic programmic EIA and pay compensation to all affected coastal communities and especially to fifty thousand (50,000) if not one hundred thousand (100,000) climate change refugees scattered in squatter settlements throughout Port-Vila and Luganville out of a total population of 250,000 inhabitants.

Just after the SOPAC Pacific DSM regional training workshop on Social Impact of Deep Sea Mineral Activities in Vanuatu from 10-14 June 2013, a few non-governmental organizations are getting organized to urge the government of Vanuatu to hold an urgent national consultation workshop with all stakeholders from coastal communities to business houses and tourism and fisheries industry who are the most affected by the emerging industry of deep sea mining.

When 99% of the people of Vanuatu are yet not informed of deep sea mining activities in their territorial waters and Exclusive Economic Zone, 99% of the 9 million people of the Pacific Island nations (excluding Australia and New Zealand) face the same fate of misinformation when their governments have granted hundreds of commercial deep sea exploration licences since 1997.

PRESS RELEASE DATED PORT-VILA, MONDAY 10th JUNE 2013 updated 11th June 2013

CLIMATE CHANGE IS
NEGATIVE ENVIRONMENT IMPACT
OF DEEP SEA MINING


Ezechiel 22:27
“Her officers within her are like wolves who tear prey –
to shed blood, to destroy souls, for the sake of unjust gain.”

Deep sea Mining (DSM) is an emerging industry of the Pacific region to commence by 2014. Yet, its fatal and devastative environment, economic and social impacts have not been well understood by its 8 million people poorly informed and misled by the scientific institutions, the mining transnational companies, the aid donors including aid donor and mining-sponsored NGOs.

When gold mining is the most polluted industry onshore, could Deep sea Mining be of zero-environment impact as claimed by Nautilus Minerals at DSM workshop in Vanuatu in May 2012 ? When commercial stage of Deep sea Mining has not started yet, the whole region of the Pacific has been facing climate change disasters for more than 40 years through scientific and commercial exploration against poor aid for reconstruction and rehabilitation programs from stakeholders who all deny legal, financial and industrial responsibilities.

Pastor Wendy HIMFORD, of Holy Church of All Nations, who is one participant of the civil society of the DSM workshop organized by SOPAC in Vanuatu 10-14 June 2013 related with the social impact assessment, has been voicing for now two years her concern : “Why the government of Vanuatu has granted 145 exploration and prospecting licences to Nautilus Minerals and Neptune Minerals (Bismarck) since 2010 without requesting an Environment Impact Assessment (EIA) as required by the 2002 Environmental Management and Conservation Act ?” Section 11-28 of the Act states that EIAs are mandatory for all development activities, projects and proposals that cause or are likely to cause significant environmental, social and or custom impacts.

1/ GEOHAZARD IS THE NEGATIVE ENVIRONMENT IMPACT OF DEEP SEA DRILLING
Minerals are formed by heated seawater from volcanic rocks along fracture tectonic and most seismic zones of planet Earth and indeed along the Pacific belt of fire. Deep sea mining drilling is therefore the highest geohazard risk venture exposing people, buildings and infrastructure at risk causing loss of life, health injury, damage to property and displacement of climate refugees. Geohazards include earthquakes, landslides, volcanic eruptions, island collapses and tsunamis.

Papua New Guinea, is the first SOPAC member country to grant 2 deep sea mineral exploration licences to Nautilus Minerals in November 1997. As a result, a strong devastative earthquake M 7.0 engineering a deadly tsunami of 3 waves of 15 m high took away 3,210 souls on 10 July 1998 (which is near the 11th September 2001 terrorist attack tragedy of the New York World Trade Center) . A SOPAC meeting was held in Madang in February 1999 with the recommendation that “a Green paper offshore mining policy” would be voted by the parliament of Papua New Guinea yet put on hold ever since. The Prime minister Michael Somare granted the commercial mining licence to Nautilus Minerals in January 2011 including a 25-year environmental permit since 2009 when the new Prime minister Peter O’Neill through Petromin nullified the Joint-Venture partnership just after his election in June 2012.

In the Vanuatu case, a scientific vents exploration on RV Franklin in September 2001 under the leadership of Chief Scientist Tim McConachy of CSIRO discovered hydrothermal vent fields along Nifonea Ridge and sulfides at active submarine volcano Oscostar, Ciaon volcano near Epi island, Kuwae caldera and Temakons Seamount.

When an earthquake of M 7.3 stroke Port-Vila (50 km West of Port-Vila) on 2nd January 2002, causing a loss of damage to property and infrastructure of AUD 10.5 million, UK, AusAid and NZAid poorly contributed to the reconstruction aid budget with secondary schools, sports stadium and government buildings still damaged and ruined up today. Scientific exploration resumed in 2004 and the government of Vanuatu granted dozens of prospecting licences to Nautilus Minerals and Neptune Minerals since 2010 under 1986 Mines and Mineral Act.

A sudden increase of strong destructive earthquakes above M 7.0 including the sudden volcanic eruptions of inactive volcanoes and inactive submarine volcanoes and tsunami alerts topped Vanuatu as the most dangerous country of the world in 2011. Ten days after Nautilus Minerals was granted prospecting licences in the Coriolis Trough as of 01 August 2010, there was a strong earthquake M 7.5 at Port-Vila on 10 August 2010. Again, in 2011, there was a series of strong earthquakes above M 7.0 at Port-Vila (indicating that boreholes are likely drilled offshore Efate, far away from traditional seismic zone of New Hebrides Trench). All these engineered earthquakes were simulated as natural divine earthquakes leaving the mining companies without any liability responsibility and the people of Vanuatu blaming God Almighty for signs of end time.

2/ CLIMATE CHANGE IS THE NEGATIVE ENVIRONMENT IMPACT OF RENEWABLE ENERGY
Deep sea Mining needs both energy and water resources. SOPAC has been exploring the new age renewable energy technologies and in particular hydrothermal, geothermal, wind energy and ocean wave energy.

Despite the negative environmental impact of renewable energy resulting coastal erosion, ocean acidification, sea-level rise, storm surge, hurricane-risks, heavy rains and drought, the parliament of Vanuatu ratified unanimously the 2009 IRENA Statutes Act in April 2012 giving the mandate to the United Nations, the World Bank and specialized regional intergovernmental institutions to fund and use the transfer of the most controversial advanced technologies of weather weapon of biological, chemical and massive destruction in the energy and mining industry.

Thanks to the government of Prime Minister Moana Carcasses, a ministry is entirely dedicated to Energy and Climate Change which shall clearly demonstrates to the public that climate change is the negative environmental impact of renewable energy. Yet, a communication war on climate change has been carried out throughout the globe hiding the causal link between renewable energy and climate change.
With experimental Deep sea Mining for more than 30 years and commercial deep sea prospecting starting in Vanuatu since 2010, the EEZ of Vanuatu is full of chemicals contaminating the seas, fish, air, rain and drinkable water sources and indeed increasing the number of non-communicable diseases with respiratory diseases dominant (acute respiratory infection 13% and flu 9%) followed by skin diseases representing 22% and the highest in the Penama province in year 2000. Since 2009, a death every month is registered from cardio-vascular diseases such as heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure and cancers such as blood cancer, lung cancer.
When Deep sea Mining method is to be cleared to the public, mining chemicals have to be listed and mining waste and disposal need to be detailed and assessed as well.

3/ LEGAL AND FINANCIAL LIABILITIES FOR GEOHAZARD AND CLIMATE CHANGE ENGINEERING
Nautilus Minerals and Neptune Minerals are violating the 2002 Environment Management and Conservation Act and are operating illegally in the EEZ of Vanuatu and shall be legally and financially liable for any climate change disaster engineered by their exploration and prospecting activities.
Ps. Wendy HIMFORD, says the public consultation of DSM Workshop SOPAC is now holding, is not representative for chief councils and communities at risk along the coast on the highest tsunami inundation zone, the municipal and provincial governments, the tourism and fisheries industry, the retail and wholesale industry based in Port-Vila and Luganville who have properties at risk shall be invited and consulted.
Ps. Wendy HIMFORD is urging the government of Vanuatu to suspend all prospecting licences till the deliverance of EIA and public consultation with relevant stakeholders of the civil society is held.

In the meantime, Ps. Wendy HIMFORD recommends the government of Vanuatu to design and put into force a complete legal framework of “financial responsibility laws” such as environmental liability, insurance liability, third-party risk liability including a disaster compensation fund for post-disaster reconstruction and rehabilitation program, which is the current business practice for oil and gas industry in the USA. “Extrapolation of the research for Port Vila indicates a combined 100-year loss for the regional grouping of Pacific countries at AUD 350 million, with an expected maximum probable earthquake loss figure of around AUD 800 million.”

Ps. Wendy HIMFORD says both scientific institutions and mining companies, government administrators and aid donors shall all be liable for “legal and financial responsibilities” in order to set up a legal framework where the civil society and victims of climate change disasters can address their claims to damages.

CONCLUSION : Deep Sea Mining has been explored for nearly 50 years in the Asia-Pacific region by SOPAC , originally a tripartite partnership between the United States of America, Australia and New Zealand under the name of CCOP “Coordinating Committee for Offshore Prospecting” through the supervision of the economic and social division of the United Nations (UN-ESCAP ) back in 1966.

Strangely, when commercial stage of Deep sea Mining is likely to start by 2014 pending on the court case of the government of Papua New Guinea against Nautilus Minerals on the copyrights of deep sea mining technology used by Nautilus Minerals SOLWORA 1 project, SOPAC is announcing the end of their public awareness budget from 2014.

Shall we, civil society of the Pacific region, let commercial extraction of Deep sea Mining in the interest of transnational mining companies and await for an engineered apocalypse wipe out our nations from the map ? The government and people of Vanuatu have so far no equities in this controversial emerging Deep sea Mining industry.

Money or Life ? Albert FALCO, captain and diver of the French Cousteau scientific Calypso, had alarmed the public for more than 20 years that : “The death of our Ocean is the death of humankind.”

UNMASKED ANTI-CORRUPTION LEADER
RALPH REGENVANU BOYCOTTED


PRESS RELEASE DATED PORT-VILA TUESDAY 14 AUGUST 2012

In her right to response to the article published by Len Garae of Daily Post (issue N0-3624) on the women’s political workshop of “candidacy training” held at Crystal Blue 6-10 August 2012, Apostle and Pastor Wendy Himford, President and founder of Christian Democratic Party, says that she is contesting in the Port-Vila constituency under her own party with 3 other women proposed candidates, Jenny Ligo (independent/Port-Vila), Marianne Bani (independent/Port-Vila) and Letty William (Labour Party/Port-Vila).

Pastor Wendy Himford says that all women proposed candidates that attended the workshop have come with their respective political affiliation when independent candidates were exposed to all sorts of negotiation to join political parties who have not yet endorsed candidates in some constituencies.

Pastor Wendy Himford says that a boycott was organized late Tuesday night 7th August 2012 after the participants have heard from relatives in Vila that a public forum on “Vanuatu General Elections” was held at USP on the occasion of USP Open Day during Law Week with Doresthy Kenneth, director of women’s affairs as a speaker on “women and elections”, who had failed to inform the women proposed candidates of the event, who had failed to organize a shuttle bus for the women proposed candidates to attend and participate and who had failed personally to attend the public forum for staying at Crystal Blue and damaging the image of women in shared decision-making.

All women proposed candidates of the workshop were questioning on the integrity of the director of women’s affairs and have decided to boycott the Wednesday morning 08 August 2012 session of Hon. Ralph Regenvanu on “Ethical campaigning”, a wantok of Doresthy Kenneth and emphasized the issue of boycott on the daily allowance of 2,000 VT for the public to evaluate if the women proposed candidates were not just puppets of the workshop which hidden agenda could be nothing else but a disguised campaign for Ralph Regenvanu, President of Graon mo Jastis Party, who was also invited as a speaker at the USP public forum.

The media coverage on both events “Law Week” and “Political women workshop” was imbalanced in favour of Graon mo Jastis Party. The radio talk back show on Thursday 9th August organized for the women proposed candidates to general elections 2012 was finally diverted and only represented by Doresthy Kenneth, director of women’s affairs and a male facilitator. One would wonder if the department of women’s affairs was supporting women in politics to become members of parliament or was supporting Graon mo Jastis Party, using the funds of women proposed candidates to support men contesters and opponents.

Women proposed candidates have rather taken this small exercise of boycott as a lesson of solidarity to get to know better each other and to identify whom is trustworthy. As a matter of fact, three women proposed candidates who had signed the letter of boycott had crossed the floor while the majority of 10 out of 14 kept strong the unity bloc till 10:00 am to end the boycott after the session of Ralph Regenvanu who was judged not to be good enough to speak on “ethical campaigning” with his shadow of harbouring prisoners of December 2008 and his recent vote on legalization of bribery on Polling Day at the first parliamentary ordinary session of April 2012.

Last but not least, the boycott targeted the session of the son of Pastor Regenvanu in response to the father's teaching to women proposed candidates to boycott their husband's vote promoting division in the family during his session on "the role of a member of parliament" on Tuesday 7th August.

When the father and son Regenvanu wanted to teach the women on their decision making in politics, the women proposed candidates to General Elections 2012 wanted to show their spiritual and political maturity and teach the teachers on their immorality and what is truly ethical campaigning and ethical values.

RALPH REGENVANU VOTED FOR
THE LEGALISATION OF BRIBERY


PRESS RELEASE DATED PORT-VILA MONDAY 13 AUGUST 2012

Apostle and Pastor Wendy Himford, President and founder of Christian Democratic Party, running for the general elections 2012 in the constituency of Port-Vila, with 9 other women proposed candidates out of total 14 contester-participants, boycotted the session of MP Ralph Regenvanu on “Ethical campaigning” of the workshop of “candidacy training” organized by the government of Vanuatu and funded by AusAid at Crystal Blue on Wednesday 8th August 2012.

Hon. Ralph REGENVANU, the so-called champion of anti-corruption who used the issue of fight against corruption as the key policy of his electoral campaign of general elections 2008, voted in favour of the legalization of bribery on Election Day on the first parliamentary ordinary session of April 2012 with all other members of parliament.

Section 45 & 46 of the People’s Representation Act CAP 146 referring to bribery and treating such as providing food, accommodation and transport to voters on Polling Day is defined as bribery.

Despite the amendment was rejected three times by DCO upon the recommendation of the Electoral Office as revealed by Martin TETE during his session on “Vanuatu Electoral System and Procedures” on Monday 6th August 2012, the government of Kilman through Hon. Georges Well, minister of internal affairs, tabled the legalization of bribery on Polling Day which the parliament voted unanimously including Hon. Ralph Regenvanu.

One more time, behind the scene, when the spot light was not focused on the legalization of bribery with only a few citizens listening to the live broadcast of parliamentary debates, Hon. Ralph Regenvanu acted contrary to his preaching on ethics and failed to be constant in his ethical communication strategy.

Apostle Wendy Himford, says that no one shall be surprised of this false political prophet of anti-corruption who had violated the electoral laws during the 2009 Municipal Elections as President of Alliance of Port-Vila and in the same time Chairman of FestNapuan, when Hon. Ralph Regenvanu organized the music festival on Polling Day right within the 100 m boundary of the Polling station of Chief’s Nakamal at Numbatu where his defacto wife Jenny Tasale was contesting in the South ward and won the elections by allegedly bribing voters.

Christian Democratic Party disputed the official results of 2009 Port-Vila Municipal Elections but the Election Dispute Committee has never been formed. In July 2012, four months before General Elections 2012, the electoral office refunded the 10,000 VT dispute fee to Ps Wendy Himford.

With his vote for the legalization of bribery on Polling Day, the disguised fight against corruption of freemason Ralph Regenvanu is finally exposed to light.


Martin TETE, technical advisor to the Electoral Office, advised all women proposed candidates to treat only their campaign agents on Polling Day and not to fall into the temptation of legalized bribery as the law allows it.

To be corrupt or not to be corrupt to be elected on General Elections 2012 ?

NEW WORLD SEIZING THE MONEY OF
THE POOR OF VANUATU

Re : N0-12 Bill for the National Bank of Vanuatu (Restructuring) Act N0 2012

Parliament of Vanuatu shall protect the people and not the private sector of WTO.

Members of parliament of the 9th Legislature of Vanuatu have become the champions of banking by selling away the assets of the people of Vanuatu through the N0-12 Bill for the National Bank of Vanuatu (Restructuring) within the shortest debate of 3 hours’ business deal on Tuesday 17th April 2012.

How many of the members of parliament have understood what they were doing by committing Vanuatu National Provident Fund to buy 15% shares of National Bank of Vanuatu ?

Private investors of the World Trade Organisation are simply fund raising in the strong and healthy Vanuatu financial market aiming at controlling fully the government of Vanuatu through its financial institutions. Hon. Moana Carcasses, minister for finance of the Green Confederation Party, has presented the sales of the only commercial bank of Vanuatu through a restructuring package of capacity building reinforcement and a win of good reputation.

The World Bank and the Asian Development Bank (ADB), on behalf of the International Finance Corporation (IFC), which are working on behalf of the leading financial giants of the New World, have conspired the best bid strategy on both financial institutions of Vanuatu through an acquisition of 30% shares of National Bank of Vanuatu and in the same time a first stage exploitation of VUV 270 million (USD 2,7 million) out of the total VUV 13 billion cash (USD 130 million) of Vanuatu National Provident Fund.

With only a 30% minority share, the private sector of the World Trade Organisation, will be controlling fully the National Bank of Vanuatu, the sole commercial bank of the people of Vanuatu through the total 7-member administration board with four representatives of the private sector, one of IFC, one of ADB, one of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry and one of Vanuatu Law of Society against respectively 3 representatives of the government of Vanuatu, one representing the Prime minister, one representing the minister for finance and the third one the Vanuatu National Provident Fund.

With only an investment capital of VUV 500 million (USD 5 million) in the National Bank of Vanuatu, the IFC has managed to bid the control of National Bank of Vanuatu. In other words, the IFC will invest only 3% of total funds to have access to a total fund of VUV 15 billion (USD 150 million) of both financial institutions in order to fund their business projects in Vanuatu as a first priority and to maintain a disguised delivery service to the indigenous people.

When the Head of State ascends and signs the National Bank of Vanuatu (Restructuring) Act N0 2012, the invisible government of the New World will control all financial institutions of Vanuatu from the monetary supply to the monetary savings.

IRENA BILL: THE TRANSFER OF TECHNOLOGIES FOR CLIMATE CHANGE TERRORISM AND DISASTERS

Ezechiel 22:27
“Her officers within her are like wolves who tear prey –
to shed blood, to destroy souls, for the sake of unjust gain.”


The bill of ratification of the INTERNATIONAL AGENCY OF RENEWABLE ENERGY (IRENA) statutes founded in 2009 is to be tabled at this first 2012 ordinary parliamentary session of April 2012 by Hon. Steven Kalsakau, minister for land, energy, water and natural resources of UMP for Change faction on Thursday 12th April. It was withdrawn after a first attempt in August 2011 by the Kilman-led government of Vanuatu upon the recommendation of Apostle Wendy Himford, President and founder of Christian Democratic Party and 2012 General Elections Port-Vila candidate.

IRENA bill is the legal mandate member states of IRENA, the United Nations, the World Bank, the European Union and specialized regional intergovernmental institutions are seeking from the government of Vanuatu to fund and use the transfer of the most controversial advanced technologies of weather weapon of biological, chemical and massive destruction in the energy and mining industry in the small island developing state of Vanuatu as in the whole Pacific region.

Out of the six classified non-conventional renewable energy defined by IRENA, geothermal, wind, ocean, solar, hydro, and biomass, three of them (geothermal, wind and ocean) are recognized by SOPAC geoscientists as the most dangerous technologies that could impact the worse engineered disasters of humankind promoted to the public at large as a historic masquerade of two century-old man-made industrial climate change issue.

What is all about IRENA ? The official definition of “renewable energy” is all forms of energy made from renewable resources within a sustainable development perspective in order to meet tomorrow’s growing energy market demand as an alternative to fossil fuel energy which reserves are decreasing and a reduction of oil imports and carbon emissions.

There is nothing as such but the last humankind venture of gold rush in the ocean called offshore mining, deep sea mining or nearshore mining which needs both energy and water resources towards the Earth crust destruction and the end-time corporate climate change terrorism, disasters and genocides.

I- GEOTHERMAL ENERGY,
BIOCHEMICAL WEAPON OF GEOHAZARD MASSIVE DESTRUCTION


The last untouched resources in the name of offshore minerals (gold, copper, zinc, lead, silver, barium, nickel, cobalt, etc.) are formed by hydrothermal vents on plate tectonics ocean basins, plate boundaries, tectonic fractures and volcanic islands, which is to say, the most dangerous natural disaster risk prone zones on planet Earth.

1987 Geothermal Energy Act CAP 197 governs exploration for geothermal resources in Vanuatu. “Energy means… energy derived or derivable from within the ground or there under by natural heat, and includes all steam, water or other fluid and any mixture of all or any of them that has been heated by such energy”.

1987 Geothermal Energy Act CAP 197 regulates the exploitation of energy out of hot springs but also the extraction of “hot dry rocks”, which is to say, minerals (derivable from within the ground) heated by such hot springs. In other words, 1987 Geothermal Energy Act CAP 197 does not only authorize the production of energy but also the exploration for gold.

When 1986 Mines and Minerals Act CAP 190 governs exploration for mineral resources in principle, 1987 Geothermal Energy Act CAP 197 regulates the exploration of all minerals formed by hot springs including offshore hydrothermal vents.

The drilling technology for geothermal energy is “fracking”, just as for the oil, gas and mining industry, called enhanced geothermal system (EGS) which involves pumping fluids at pressure to create or enhance permeability and thereby create and maximize the transfer of heat from rock to injected water. EGS therefore intentionally aims to create shear failure in the target zone to facilitate heat transfer to non-naturally occurring water, which results in small earthquakes (World Bank definition).

When EGS is done on the most active tectonic, seismic and volcanic oceanic zone on Earth, which are tectonic fault zones and submarine volcanoes, small earthquakes can only become strong earthquakes of above M 7.0 that could trigger deadly tsunamis, hydrothermal and volcanic eruptions.

In Switzerland, in the city of Basel, a USD 60 million project to extract geothermal energy was suspended in 2006 after it generated earthquakes in the magnitude 3 range between December 2006 and January 2007. The project was permanently shut down in 2009 after a risk analysis concluded that more quakes could follow if the drilling continued. Geopower Basel had to pay a compensation liabilities for cracked walls and other damage on homes and structures near the project site.

According to the Department of Chemical Engineering and Center for Environmental Studies in the USA, it is vital to make environmental impact assessments a priori for vapor and liquid-dominated fields contain noncondensable gases, low molecular weight hydrocarbons with the inherent toxicity of trace heavy metals.

If the reinjection of the wastewater into the reservoir is not planned, then the land, environment and underground water are contaminated. Mercury vapor risk may be also problematical over fumarolic and volcanic regions contaminating air, injuring public health and self-destroying drilling/well equipment. Toxic gas emissions will continue and even increase if the geothermal plant is shutdown.

Isn’t it shocking when the newly established World Bank Utilities Regulatory Authority (URA) which aims at regulating the Vanuatu energy industry in favor of the common public interest, has not even requested any Environmental Impact Assessment for the USD 120 million KUTH Energy Efate Geothermal Power and Island-Ring Grid Development Project and consulted the public at large for prior consent ?

The World Bank report clearly stipulates that exploration risk could provoke a volcanic eruption to be claimed by KUTh Energy as force majeure as simple as that when it is purely an industrial disaster risk.

II – WIND AND OCEAN WAVE ENERGY,
WEATHER WEAPONS OF MASSIVE DESTRUCTION


Renewable energy subject to continual flows (solar, hydro, ocean wave and wind) could play a major role in the World Energy Road Map called the green market. Yet, two of them, in particular, the wind and ocean wave energy under IRENA statutes, do not respect neither the environment nor enhance sustainable development but could engineer devastative climate change impacts towards national to regional national disasters through storm surges, hurricane-risks, ocean acidification and sea-rise level.

II. 1 – WIND ENERGY
Wind farm energy can impact local but also regional weather pattern called meteorology. Wind farms use windmill turbines to generate electricity by converting the kinetic energy of the wind into mechanical energy. All large wind turbines disrupt natural airflow to extract energy from wind. The wind's force is gathered by the long blades of the turbine, causing them to rotate (mechanical energy). This rotation starts a generator, which produces low-voltage electric energy.

According to environmental engineers, wind farm propellers create a lot of turbulence in their wake, mixing air up and down with effects that can be detected for miles. Wind turns the blades of the turbine around a rotor, which helps generate electricity the blades create a lot of turbulence in the wake. Air turbulences creates a warming climate raising temperatures by about 2 degrees Celsius for several hours and drying effect near the ground impacting drought, damaging agriculture and causing deforestation in the long run.

Worse, turbines while causing massive disruptions in air currents, could lead to changes in the strength, motion and timing of hurricanes over the entire Pacific Ocean. Discovery Channel News denounced as early as November 25, 2008 that : "Mega wind farms of the future could have a major impact on weather, clearing up cloudy skies and even steering storm systems, according to new research." "The total disturbance caused by turbines could be enough to steer storms."

The Global Environmental Facility (GEF) under UNDP has been spearheading the research and development strategy of the Energy and Mining Industry in Vanuatu and Pacific since the genesis. In Vanuatu, the private company UNELCO, a French GDF Suez subsidiary, operates a USD 8 million wind farm energy at Devil’s Point, 12 km West of Port-Vila on Efate island with the first turbine installed in July 2007 out of a total 11 wind turbines of 55 m high and a 32 m diameter of propulsion producing approximately 5,349 MW on an average of 6.4 m / s speed.

A second phase of 10 other wind towers is planned at White Sands area in South Efate with a total capacity of 4.4 MW.

The wind farm energy of UNELCO is funded by the European Investment Bank whereas all other wind towers projects throughout Vanuatu are also funded by the European Union-ACP Energy Facility and the Vanuatu Renewable Energy and Power Association (VANREPA). 3 wind towers of 600 W were installed at Futuna to support 400 people and 2 wind towers in Aneytium.

The government of Italy is funding the complementary installation of wind turbines in all 6 provinces in the following islands of Tanna, Tongoa, Malekula, Santo, Pentecost and Vanualava under the care of UNDP/SPREP/GEF and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

Could UNELCO windmill farm be the maker of cyclone Vania formed above Port-Vila on 13 January 2011 heading south west towards Port-Vila, reversing north unexpectedly to hit TAFEA (Tanna and Erromango) and making Vanuatu under alert for 2-3 days ?

Again, could UNELCO windmill farm be the maker of cyclone Atu formed 65 km southwest Port-Vila on 23 February 2011 heading towards Port-Vila but changing track according to research wind direction to hit again TAFEA and in particular Futuna and Aneytium where wind towers were installed resulting an estimation of USD 11 million damage ?

These two hurricanes were of strong wind but were strangely moving very slow, which is not typical of tropical hurricanes characteristics.

II.2 - OCEAN WAVE ENERGY

Wave energy can be considered as a concentrated form of solar energy. Winds are generated by the differential heating of the earth. As winds pass over open bodies of water they transfer some of their energy to form waves (Southgate, 1987).

The size of waves depends on the speed of the wind, wind duration, and the distance of water over which the winds blow. When waves have reached a certain size, the wind can actually exert a stronger force on the upwind face of the wave causing additional wave growth. The process is maximized when the speeds of the wind and waves are equal.

Energy is transferred from the wind to the waves at each of these steps. Waves lying within or close to the areas where they are generated, “storm waves”, produce a complex, irregular sea. These waves will continue to travel in the direction of their formation even after the wind dies down. In deep water, waves lose energy only slowly (mainly by interacting with the atmosphere), so they can travel out of the storm areas with minimal loss of energy as regular, smooth waves or “swell”. These can persist at great distances from the point of origin.

In leading Europe, USA and the South Pacific, the mix wind and ocean wave energy technology is under research to maximize the production of energy for wind energy cannot be stored. Petroleum-based hydraulic fluids, toxins for antifouling paints, metals including lead and zinc which are used for ocean wave energy are the causal link for coastal erosion and the contamination of food web.

With experimental deep sea mining for more than a decade and commercial deep sea prospecting mining in Vanuatu since 2010, petroleum-based hydraulic chemicals have polluted the Exclusive Economic Zone of Vanuatu, the air but also the rain, which is to say the natural water cycle process called hydrosphere.

The mix wind and ocean wave energy accelerating the making of heavy rains contaminated by deep sea mining chemicals are likely the direct causal link of the sea rise level and sea acidification, negatively impacting the environment such as flooding, damage of roads with deep holes and damage of properties.

What could likely cause 75% of Vanuatu deaths related to non-communicable diseases but contaminated air, contaminated rain water and contaminated food by Vanuatu today’s illegal, immoral and criminal deep sea mining and renewable energy of the so-called green market promoted by the United Nations and the European Union to achieve officially a “sustainable world economy” of Agenda 21 of the first 1992 Earth Summit on one hand but to extract gold for the interests of the wealthiest elite of the World Trade Organisation (WTO) on the other hand ?

The topic “technology transfer for innovation : Rio +20” of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Brazil from 20-22 June 2012 is likely the worse ever political congress of humanity since the invasion of nephilims on Earth to launch and implement a depopulation strategy through a weather warfare with biological, chemical and massive destruction weapons.

Science has become evil. The Earth’s crust is raped. Greedy scientists, engineers, corporate capitalists and politicians have pushed the destruction button of the end world tragic scenario of the Earth worldwide. The IRENA Statutes ratification bill is to legally authorize donor partners to use their weather warfare technologies how deadly, how toxic, they could be, on behalf of the government of Vanuatu.

Will the government and the 9th Legislature of Parliament of Vanuatu sacrifice the people of Vanuatu as the 2012 WTO Passover lamb through the transfer of environmental sound technologies resulting a multi-chain risk of climate change disasters and corporate genocides covered by IRENA statutes for little unjust gain just six months before 2012 general elections ?

The financial gain for a funded short term electoral campaign is too a little bid to risk a beyond 2013 national ecocide of 250,000 people … unless life has no more meaning, no more value, for the 52 Christian members of parliament who all took parliamentary oath before God during their swearing-in in 2008, including theirs.

A 40-YEAR NEO-COLONIAL JOINT COMMONWEALTH / UNITED NATIONS
FINANCIAL MINING STRATEGY IN VANUATU AND PACIFIC


I - 1969 Vanuatu International Finance Centre (IFC)
Vanuatu IFC was established in 1969 on the advice of the British government when it was still a Condominium.
An IFC is a jurisdiction that levies no, or very low, direct corporate and personal income taxes, provides for the formation of international companies and trusts that can be used in the management of tax neutral portfolios and world-wide assets.

The first generation of privatization was done in 1981 when the government of Vanuatu started the international trade of shipping registry. From December 1992, the shipping registry is under a 15-year contract till 2007 by the private company Vanuatu Maritime Services represented by its Chairman, Tom M. Bayer and President Robert M. Bohn, 2012 General Elections candidate for Epi constituency.

The 1998 Vanuatu Maritime Authority Act being repealed in 2007, the Safety Authority Act also repealed in 2008, Vanuatu Maritime Services Ltd managed to renew its shipping registry contract with much success against a small group of indigenous people called "Freedom Fighters" claiming the priority rights to own, control, and manage their lands, territories, and resources and rights to development.

The Vanuatu Financial Services Commission (VFSC) was established in 1993. The Vanuatu Finance Centre Association (VFSA) was set up in 1994 to advertize IFC overseas. In December 1999, telegraphic payments of USD were suspended because of money laundering. In 2000, there was a joint-assessment visit by the Asia-Pacific group on money laundering and the Offshore group of Banking supervisors. In 2002, the International Monetary Fund commanded the transfer of regulatory responsibilities from the VFSC to the Reserve Bank of Vanuatu.

The Republic of Vanuatu, colonized or independent, is under political and financial siege by the IMF, the sister bank of the World Bank for the reconstruction of Europe post World War II.

II - 1997 Comprehensive Reform Program (CRP)
In 1997, Vanuatu undertook its Comprehensive Reform Program (CRP) funded by the Australian government through Asian Development Bank, a regional sister bank of the World Bank.
CRP is the second stage of economic bid on public assets and businesses of the Republic of Vanuatu through the neoliberal global program to reform and reduce the role of the state and public service in economic issues.

The second generation of privatization of public enterprises and public services (water, energy, telecommunications) and all strategic sectors (civil aviation, airports, wharfs) was multiplied through the policy of private sector led-growth not to say the eradication of economic statutory bodies (VMA, VCMB).

III - 2001-2011 World Trade Organization Accession
In 2000, the Strata Title Act was voted and allows foreigners to own real estate in rural areas, which is unconstitutional. The land, the main cause for the fight for 1980 Independence, which is clearly the wealth of indigenous people, is now on sale at the expenses of their customs owners.

As a consequence, Vanuatu was granted the accession to WTO in 2001. Yet, the government of Vanuatu through the deputy Prime minister and minister for trade, Hon. Serge Vohor (2011-2012 Leader of opposition) was not thrilled to join WTO in 2001 as her UN Least Developed Country’s status shows clearly that the nation is not competitive enough in many areas of trade and industry.

Ten years later, no matter that Vanuatu remains one of the poorest countries of the world, the Parliament of Vanuatu voted the Bill of Protocol for the accession of Vanuatu as a member of WTO.

The 1st December 2011 marks the day of treason of indigenous members of parliament of the Republic of Vanuatu with their own people by legalizing a bid free of charge on all assets of the Republic of Vanuatu from the government itself, land, people and all natural resources.

"Freedom Fighters" which has infiltrated Nagriamel Movement to divide all political parties to unite under the Alliance group to form the government 2008-2012 and is now replaying the electoral cards by forming UMP for change born Saturday 24th March 2012 to prepare the next government 2012-2016. Nagriamel is just one of the multi-political arms of Vanuatu International Finance Centre under the think tank of Tom Bayer, Robert Bohn and the Illuminati freemasons.

PRESS RELEASE DATED PORT-VILA SATURDAY 24TH MARCH 2012

A 40-YEAR UNESCAP/SOPAC GOLD MINING STRATEGY
IN THE PACIFIC AND VANUATU


By Apostle Wendy-Myriam HIMFORD, President of Christian Democratic Party and 2012 General Elections candidate for Port-Vila Constituency

Back in 1970, when gold was found out in Bougainville in Papua New Guinea, the western developed countries designed a mining strategy for the whole Pacific region in the name of CCOP, the Committee for Coordination of Joint Prospecting for Mineral Resources in South Pacific Offshore Areas under the supervision of the economic and social division of the United Nations (UN-ESCAP ) when the United Nations Convention Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) was framed to explore offshore minerals in the world ocean map.

In 1989, the tripartite partnership CCOP between the United States of America, Australia and New Zealand, was rededicated under the new name of SOPAC. In 2010, SOPAC was restructured under SPC keeping its specialization in three key areas : resource development, environmental geosciences, and national capacity development in geosciences.

Since 1978 before 1980 Independence, Vanuatu has been a full member of SOPAC. In 1981, after the Small Island Developing States (SIDS) Natural Resource and Environment Management strategy was formulated, SOPAC began to work with Vanuatu to stimulate the development process of mineral and hydrocarbon mining in Vanuatu.

Training in basic research skills was provided to technicians to assess mineral resources. A baseline coastal study was executed right from 1983 to develop appropriate coastal-management and development strategies under the ministry of Internal Affairs of Vanuatu.

In 1985, SOPAC investigated the presence of alluvial gold and identified 2 areas with gold deposits of commercial interest, epithermal gold in South Santo and Malekula. Therefore mining legislation has been developed to control potential mining activity in the names of 1986 Mines and Minerals Act (CAP 190) and the Geothermal Energy Act N0-6 of 1987 (CAP 197).

A mineral development project funded by the European Union in the late 1980s allowed SOPAC to carry out seismic-refraction surveys and evaluation of hydrocarbon source rocks which clearly show the potential source of hydrocarbon lying in the sedimentary bases between Santo and Malekula (SANMA) and between Maewo and Pentecost (PENAMA).

In 1993, SOPAC established a comprehensive Oil Company Database to assist member countries in their dealings with oil companies and drafted Vanuatu Petroleum Act N0-13 of 1993.

In 1994, a SOPAC/JAPAN technical cooperation on deep sea mineral resources project started in 1985 found out Hydrothermal Deposits in Coriolis Trough (offshore Eastern Efate, offshore Eastern Shefa and Tafea where most hurricanes are born and predicted since December 2010.)

In 1995, the government of the Republic of Vanuatu through the leadership of Prime minister Maxime Carlot Korman, released the Vanuatu Mineral Exploration Initiative (VMEI) funded by AusAid, planned and managed by the Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO) which results were promoted to mining companies in Australia .

All Vanuatu Geophysical Data were controlled by AGSO Sales Centre based in Canberra, Australia as part of the government of Australia’s strategic framework of mineral exploration in Vanuatu. All interested companies or governments could only buy digital and hard copy products in prices offered in Australian dollars (AUD) through AGSO.

As a result, Vanuatu has started to experience a significant increase in mineral interest with several new Prospecting License applications. In 2012, prospecting licences under 1986 Mines and Mineral Act both onshore and offshore throughout the archipelago including prospecting licences under 1987 Geothermal Energy Act are holding 250,000 people hostage to climate change disasters for the government has never officially informed and consulted the people of this emerging high multi-risks mining and energy industry.

A 40-year strategy of opaque and weak governance has ever since been cultivated by all mineral development partners from UNESCAP, European Union and the government of Australia through small grants programs and technical advisors projects. A new form of neo-colonialism was designed to deliver an independent and sovereign Republic of Vanuatu which nickname is simply the “Condominium of Vanuatu” run by the anglophone Vanua’aku Pati and today’s puppet shadow government led by the directors general formed through the Asian Development Bank funded 1997 Comprehensive Reform Program.

Most national laws of Vanuatu are prepared by the think tank of mining and energy multinationals through their international institutions such as the World Bank and the World Trade Organization in order to form the New World Order controlling the financial, military and spiritual powers of each nation worshiping the mother of harlots of Babylone, her luxury and fornication.

PRESS RELEASE PORT-VILA SUNDAY 11 MARCH 2012

ILLEGAL, IMMORAL AND CRIMINAL
MINING INDUSTRY EXPOSING OUR LIVES AT RISK


All mining and energy companies prospecting right now in the offshore of Vanuatu are committing a crime by not providing a mandatory Environment Impact Assessment pursuant to the 2002 Environmental Protection and Conservation Act.

The public including coastal communities at risk have never been consulted for such dangerous activities that are harming our environment, food, soil, air, water and health.

All prospecting licences granted under 1986 Mines and Mineral Act and 1987 Geothermal Energy Act by the government of Vanuatu to mining companies are :

- Environment Impact Assessment-FREE,
- Drilling Risk Assessment-FREE,
- Earthquake Risk Assessment-FREE,
- Building and Infrastructure Risk Assessment-FREE
- Risk-financing scheme for Catastrophes or Insurance-FREE
- Third Party Risk Assessment-FREE
- Social and Economic Impact Assessment-FREE

Hydraulic Fracturing Technology :
The drilling technology is itself the most dangerous in the mining, oil and gas industry and in particular the Hydraulic Fracturing Drilling technology which engineers earthquakes, earthquake-induced landslides, volcanic eruption and tsunami.

Hydraulic fracturing is a well stimulation process used to maximize the extraction of underground resources – oil, natural gas and geothermal energy. The hydraulic fracturing process includes the acquisition of source water, well construction, well stimulation, and waste disposal . Hydraulic fracturing involves the pressurized injection of fluids commonly made up of water and toxic chemical additives into a geologic formation. The pressure exceeds the rock strength and the fluid opens or enlarges fractures in the rock inducing earthquakes.

I – LEGAL BAN ON HYDRAULIC FRACTURING OR FRACKING
In Europe, after the 11 March 2011 Fukushima earthquake M 9.0-tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan, the Parliament of France voted on 11th May 2011 an urgent law prohibiting permanently the practice of “hydraulic fracturing drilling”. France is the first country in Europe to ban such practice upon public pressure on the basis of environmental concerns. Yet, French environmentalists are still fighting against programs of disguised scientific experiments for commercial and exploration purpose.

Three exploration permits issued to Schuepbach and Total in 2010 were all cancelled on 4 October 2011. President Sarkozy has stated that France would not permit hydraulic fracturing until it is proven to be “environmentally clean”.

Bulgaria has become the second country in Europe to ban hydraulic fracking through parliamentary legislation upon public demonstrations since January 2011 and revoked Exon licence.

In Ireland, 5 county councils voted the ban of fracking supported by all political parties in January 2012.

As in England, a mining company has halted drilling for shale gas after scientists said two small earthquakes might be linked to the controversial process, known as "fracking".

In Switzerland, in the city of Basel, a USD 60 million project to extract geothermal energy was suspended in 2006 after it generated earthquakes in the magnitude 3 range between December 2006 and January 2007. Geopower Basel paid around NZ$13.2M in compensation for cracked walls and other damage on homes and structures near the project site.The project was permanently shut down in 2009 after a risk analysis concluded that more quakes could follow if the drilling continued.

In April 2011, authorities in the Swiss Canton of Fribourg suspended all authorizations to prospect for shale gas on its territory for an undetermined period. The cantonal government decided not to renew a license granted to Schuepbach Energy to explore for shale gas. The license, first granted in 2008, expires at the end of the year. Schuepbach has planned drilling in 2012 in the district of Glâne, where conventional exploration had taken place in the 1970s.

In the Pacific, in May 2011, the New South Wales government of Australia imposed a temporary moratorium against the practice of “hydraulic fracturing drilling”, extended in July 2011 till 31 December 2011 and extended again till April 2012.

The blow-out of a Shell/Petro China well near Dalby in the Surat Basin, jetting gas and hot water and causing an emergency response in May 2011 prompted the Queensland Conservation Council to call for a moratorium on further Coal Seam Gas permits. National Party senator Barnaby Joyce said the AUD 50 billion shale gas and coal seam gas industry had to take community concerns seriously and called for a parliamentary inquiry.

In the USA, the New York state has put a temporary moratorium on "fracking" or “hydraulic fracturing drilling” imposed in 2008 and to expire on June 1, 2012. New York legislators are debating extending the state’s de facto moratorium on hydraulic fracturing for another year.

New Jersey state has put one-year ban on “hydrofracking” while more and more towns are banning “hydrofracking” within their boundary limits.

In Canada, the Quebec government has suspended shale-gas drilling and exploration in the province, following the release of a special committee report saying such work should be delayed until the government can do a strategic environmental evaluation. In March 2011, Nathalie Normandeau, Quebec's natural resources minister, imposed a ban on fracking for both gas and oil.

In South Africa, a countrywide moratorium against hydrofracking has been implemented.

II – LAWSUITS AGAINST GOVERNMENTS AND MINING COMPANIES
There is an increasing civil cases of litigation against “hydraulic fracturing drilling” engineering multiplication of earthquakes impacting property damage, loss of fair market value in real estate, emotional distress, and damages related to the purchase of earthquake insurance in the USA, but also in Canada.

Several Arkansas residents have joined with environmental groups in a lawsuit against the federal government to stop natural gas drilling in the Ozark National Forest and under Greers Ferry Lake.

In another action, a resident of Faulkner County has filed a class action lawsuit seeking millions of dollars for damages from earthquakes allegedly associated with fracking against BHP Billiton Petroleum, Chesapeake Operating, Inc., and Clarita Operating, LLC as defendants. Arkansas has recently experienced a surge in seismic activity, including the biggest earthquake recorded by the state in more than three decades. Ninety percent of the earthquakes recorded in the state since 2009 have occurred within six kilometers of salt water disposal sites associated with fracking operations.

BHP BILLITON has been hit with a series of class actions in the US as landowners allege extraction techniques used in the group's shale gas business are causing earthquakes, poisoning water sources and dangerously polluting the soil and air.

Citizens all around the world are mobilizing themselves to fight against fracking and protect their rights to life, liberty, security of the person, protection of property including rights to freedom of expression.


We, in Vanuatu, are we going to become role-model citizens of the Universe? Or are we going to become climate change refugees and allow illegal, immoral and criminal activities injure our health, damage our properties, destroy our land, air and water till each single island of Vanuatu becomes a disaster zone ?
It is our common public interest to stop the Beyond 2013 ecocide.

PRESS RELEASE DATED PORT-VILA SATURDAY 10TH MARCH 2012

2013 PACIFIC APOCALYPSE
TO BE ENGINEERED BY DEEP SEA MINING


A strong earthquake magnitude 7.1 hit offshore South East of Erromango on Friday 09th march 2012 at 6:09 pm local time triggering a devastative tsunami alert issued by the authorities of Vanuatu.

A series of strong earthquakes above magnitude 7.0 have been hitting Vanuatu every year at all different parts of the exclusive economic zone (EEZ) of Shefa and Tafea provinces since 2010. Are these earthquakes natural or man-made ?

Deep sea mining with Nautilus Mineral has started in Vanuatu with the grant of commercial mining Prospecting Licenses pursuant to the 1986 mines and mineral act since 2010.

I – THE CAUSAL LINK BETWEEN EARTHQUAKES AND MINING
For a period of ten years, 2002-2012, it is very interesting to note that since 03 January 2002 Earthquake M 7.3 of Port-Vila, there was no strong earthquake M 7.0 for the period 2003 till 2007.

In 2010, as soon as Nautilus Minerals was granted prospecting tenements in the Coriolis Trough (Temakons / Coriolis / Nifonea) as of 01 August 2010, there was a strong earthquake M 7.5 West of Port-Vila on 10 August 2010, exactly 10 days after the issuing date of tenements.

In 2011, again in the same period one year later, there were a series of strong earthquakes > M 7.0 West Port-Vila, indicating technically that boreholes are likely drilled offshore around the island of Efate, far away from traditional seismic zone of New Hebrides Trench.

The latest to date 9 March 2012 earthquake M 7.1, 61 km North East of Isangel, Tanna is located exactly in the prospecting area of the Prospecting Licences entitled Futunas.

The coincidental link between those strong earthquakes above M 7.0 and the grant of Offshore Prospecting Licenses is of serious concern for there is purely violation of the constitutional rights to life, liberty, security of the person, protection of the law, freedom of movement and protection of property by the government of Vanuatu forcing its 250,000 inhabitants to climate change hostage without prior consultation for the so-called common “public interest”.

Under the 1982 United Nations Convention Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) ratified by Vanuatu, a coastal state has sovereign rights over the natural resources of the seabed, subsoil, and superjacent waters within its EEZ.

II- HUMAN ACTIVITY ENGINEERING CLIMATE CHANGE DISASTER
Geohazards in an offshore oil, gas and mining perspective can be due to local and/or regional site and soil conditions having the potential to develop into failure events causing loss of life and damage to the environment, reports geoscientist and engineer Arash Zakeri of the Norwegian Geotechnical Institute.

Under the Bill for the Meteorological, geological hazards and climate change to be tabled in April 2012 parliamentary session, climate change means any change of climate which is attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the composition of the global atmosphere, and which affects the hydrosphere, biosphere, cryosphere and lithosphere, and which is in addition to natural climate variability observed over comparable time periods; and when referring to responses to the impacts of climate change includes addressing adverse affects arising from climate change or the possibility of change on any part of the environment (such as the water resources and rainfall, coastal and foreshore areas, reefs and marine habitats), or from harmful weather events, exposure to damaging sunlight and any other event or impact on the environment or human health.

It is then clear that climate change is engineered by human activity, which is to say, for the case of Vanuatu and the Pacific as a whole, deep sea mining and ocean wave energy. Deep sea mining engineers earthquakes at each drilling through hydraulic fracking chemical fluids with deadly tsunamis-risks and volcanic eruptions-risks when ocean wave energy engineers storm surges and devastative hurricane-risks.

In the Pacific region, the 7 million people at risk because of deep sea mining scientific research and commercial prospecting are not informed at all of the scientific reality of climate change.

For offshore sites, defining the acceptable level of failure probability is usually done by the "problem owners", i.e. the operating mining companies, certifying agencies and government authorities. When there is potential for significant damage to third parties as a result of slope failure, stricter acceptance criteria may be established by the authorities. Nothing as such has been done by the government of Vanuatu simply endangering the well-being and welfare of its people and future generations.

The assessment of the risk associated with submarine mass movements is thus not just a matter related to commercial interests of mining companies. The societal and environmental consequences of such events could also be enormous for coastal communities. For instance, the 15-m tsunami that killed more than 3000 people in Papua New Guinea in July 1998 was also a result of an earthquake-triggered submarine slide.

Natural disasters can devastate economies at the local, provincial and even national and regional levels. There are limitations of expertise, knowledge, and capability to deal with the problems.

While the impact of one of these natural hazards may cause few casualties and limited damage on the international scale, the proportional impact on a small population and a fragile economy can leave a PIC more devastated than many larger countries with a higher vulnerability profile.

Are we going to let deep sea mining jeopardize our lives, assets and welfare for unjust gain doing nothing ? Is there any legacy of past generations and the future ? Is there any rule of law in Vanuatu to protect her citizens from illegal, immoral and criminal activities operating without any Environmental Impact Assessment ?

Or are we accepting a future wrecked nation with climate change refugees ?
May you keep being a corrupt, selfish and irresponsible citizen, 2013 Pacific Apocalypse is near with deep sea mining spearheading from Papua New Guinea.

PRESS RELEASE DATED PORT-VILA FRIDAY 9TH MARCH 2012

3210 LIVES NOT GOOD ENOUGH
TO STOP DEEP SEA MINING IN PNG


Once Nautilus Minerals will receive its mining vessel still under construction by end 2012, deep sea mining in Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu will start. 2013 Pacific Endtime Apocalypse engineered by men is set to unfold before our eyes.

Shall we, citizens of the Pacific, children of God-Almighty, let the evil industry, corrupt politicians, corrupt government officials and corrupt NGOs, wipe out our islands and people ? Shall we accept this collective suicide and do nothing ?

Papua New Guinea out of all Pacific Island Countries was the first to grant 2 deep sea mineral exploration licences in the Manus Basin, New Ireland Province, to Australian Nautilus Minerals in November 1997 when PNG ratified the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) the same year though no deep sea mining national legislation was enacted.

As soon as the exploration licences were issued, 17 July 1998 Aitape tsunami inducing a series of 3 huge tsunami waves up to 15 metres high, cost Papua New Guinea 3,210 souls, thousands of injured and more than 10,000 climate change refugees. The 60 km coastline of the northern shore of Papua New Guinea is the most vulnerable tsunami-prone zone because of its geologic setting being next to the New Guinea trench that runs sub-parallel to the coast some 20 to 35 km from the shoreline where deep sea mining has gold target deposits.

A few months later, in 1999, the government of PNG under the initiative of Hon. Masket LANGALIO, minister for mining, launched the famous Green Paper on offshore mining policy also known as 1999 Madang guidelines hoping that “if we develop the right kind of policy and legal framework that encourages exploration and mining in the offshore areas while at the same time protecting our interests as well as those of our neighbours and the international community, particularly in terms of marine environmental protection and management, PNG’s policy could become a model for other countries to emulate and follow.

Yet, ever since, as it is likely that the industry has managed to hide the causal link between deep sea mining and the 1998 tsunami-tragedy through widespread corruption, the government of PNG has never passed the green paper on offshore mining policy.

And on 29 march 2011, despite all negative independent environment impact assessments, the government of PNG under the leadership of Prime minister Michael SOMARE signed the first commercial deep seabed mining lease with Nautilus Minerals with full operations expected to commence in 2013. The joint-venture between Petromin PNG Holding Ltd state-owned oil and mining company holding 30% stake and Nautilus Minerals 70% stake in Nautilus Minerals Solwora 1 project in the Bismarck Sea has the responsibility to mine for a 20-year period.

In 1998, a strong earthquake M 7.0 induced a submarine landslide impacting a deadly tsunami of 3 waves of 15 m high. The probability is high that the earthquake was engineered by chemical fluids used by the hydraulic fracking drilling technology of Nautilus Minerals.

When 1998 PNG tsunami was local, the tsunami-risk is regional. Deep sea mining in PNG and Vanuatu can impact all countries of the Pacific. Nautilus Minerals have no sense of guilt to expose 7 million people at risk, to eventually destroy nations, damage infrastructure and buildings and contaminate air, water, fish and environment.
This is what we call ecocide.

PRESS RELEASE PORT-VILA UPDATED WEDNESDAY 08TH MARCH 2012

SOS CITIZEN : WTO TO DEFRAUD VANUATU INDIGENOUS OF THEIR GOLD THROUGH KUTH GEOTHERMAL ENERGY

Apostle Wendy-Myriam HIMFORD, President of CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC PARTY, 2012 General Election candidate for Port-Vila Constituency, condemns Vanuatu’s membership to World Trade Organization (WTO).

The parliamentary WTO vote is a first-class political conspiracy between Kilman-led coalition government, disguised parliamentary opposition led by the Vanuaaku Pati (VP) and double face electoral propaganda “vote against WTO” of Hon. Ralph Regenvanu :

“WTO is a legalized bid on Vanuatu’s gold resources onshore and offshore. For instance, the current KUTh ENERGY (KEN) geothermal energy project on Efate island where capital Port-Vila is located is likely to be a conspiracy of a legalized and organized fraud to extract and rip off epithermal gold under the Takara hot springs without regulation, without control and without payment of any royalties or profit sharing to the government of Vanuatu and customs land owners.”

KUTh ENERGY listed in Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in September 2007 raised AUD 7.5 million. At 30 June 2009, KUTh had AUD 2.0 million in cash and was granted AUD 1 million by the Australian government AusAID/REDI programme to develop a “charitable 5MW Geothermal Power Plant in Vanuatu” worth USD 14,700,000 of total investment according to United Nations Environment Program (1.4 billion VUV, around 10% of 2012 Vanuatu government Revenue Budget).

Yet, the “2011 Investment Opportunities in the Pacific Islands” leaflet is publishing KUTH-Energy investment value of USD 77,400,000 which is to say nearly half of the 2012 national budget of Vanuatu. Will such a big-size investment project produce low cost electricity from hot springs reservoir to around 20,000 people of rural communities along the north west coast of Efate ? Will half the budget of a nation bless half of a small island ? And what about USD 120 million highest estimated KUTh-Energy Efate geothermal energy investment budget, which is to say 75% of the 2012 government budget (VUV 12 billion out of VUV 16 billion 2012 government budget) ?

Or is there any hidden agenda behind a 5MW Geothermal Power Plant to be then developed to a 20MW plant to a 50MW plant up to total 83 MW plant with a 40 ha land in Takara, a 30 ha land at Forari industrial zone under negotiation for acquisition as public land? For Port-Vila, the current UNELCO utility power operates a 23MW diesel capacity for around 13,000 households. Why would Efate island need such a powerful geothermal energy power station of 83MW, four times the current capacity of UNELCO ?

The truth is that the World Bank claims to be a development partner by playing the role of paternalistic regulator for strategic sectors such as energy, water and telecommunications when its aim is to make all “climate change projects” bankable for the interests of mining multinationals controlling WTO. The truth is that KUTh ENERGY has no intention to provide electricity to Takara customs land owners and coastal communities of North Efate. The first stage of power production is under negotiation with UNELCO to resell to Port-Vila concession.

Many UN and regional institutions such as SOPAC, SPREP and UNEP have contributed to the pre-exploration feasibility study of the emerging Green Energy Market of Forum Pacific Island Countries under the climate change program. UNEP for instance funded a USD 37,000 advisory support to Takara 5MW geothermal plant and provided third party expertise to the Vanuatu government to prepare for negotiations and the tendering process that has never been processed by eliminating competition barriers distorting national laws.

2011 World Bank Energy Review covers KUTh geothermal project under the “energy mix” legally binded in paragraph 46 of Johannesburg Plan of Implementation mandated by 2002 UN World Summit on Sustainable Development which is specific to mining and minerals industry development.

As soon as Steven KALSAKAU, minister for lands, natural resources and renewable energy, extended the KUTh ENERGY Takara geothermal prospecting licence late November 2011 revising the expiry date from April 1, 2012 to October 1, 2013, it was then a clock-time rush for the government of the Republic of Vanuatu to complete the fraudulent ultrahazardous multi-billion USD deal by becoming member of the neo-liberal and neo-colonial World Trade Organization before the Eighth WTO Ministerial Conference in Geneva (15-17 December 2011).

KUTh is working under the regulatory framework of Vanuaaku Pati 1987 Geothermal Energy Act CAP 197 which regulates the exploitation of geothermal energy and gives the full power to control over all natural reserves of geothermal energy. “Energy means… energy derived or derivable from within the ground or there under by natural heat, and includes all steam, water or other fluid and any mixture of all or any of them that has been heated by such energy”.

In other words, “epithermal gold” deposited within the ground under natural heat is technically and lawfully classified as “energy mix”. This is how KUTh preaching selling environmental friendly geothermal energy to the poor Least Developed Country of Vanuatu when KUTh is more likely involved in a WTO/WORLD BANK conspiracy to defraud the government and people of Vanuatu by legalizing fraudulent exploration and extraction of epithermal gold and manipulating weak governance through legalized corruption.

Australian KUTh geothermal drilling agenda is planned for April 2012 without any Environment Impact Assessment (EIA). This is a pure violation of Vanuatu environmental laws. It is the full legal and financial responsibility for KUTh ENERGY to submit a complete Environment Impact Assessment before any drilling operation just like NAUTILUS MINERALS Solwora 1 project in the Bismarck Sea of Papua New Guinea has to provide an EIA then challenged by an independent EIA conducted for Bismarck-Solomon Seas Indigenous Peoples Council protesting against the deep sea mineral project.

The government of Vanuatu has granted Australian KUTh ENERGY Environment Impact Assessment-FREE, Geothermal Drilling Risk Assessment-FREE, Earthquake Risk Assessment-FREE, and even Social and Economic Impact Assessment-FREE when the drilling technology is itself the most dangerous in the mining industry and in particular the Hydraulic Fracturing Drilling technology which engineers earthquakes, earthquake-induced landslides, volcanic eruption and tsunami, all deadly man-made geohazards killing people, damaging properties, contaminating air and water.

The tragegy scenario is too beautiful. In case there is volcanic eruption and tsunami, KUTh ENERGY will claim force majeure when this engineered exploration disaster is simply part of the environmental catastrope risk. KUTh ENERGY shall be liable for all losses of life, injuries and refugees, damages to property and emergency disaster zone including rehabilitation and reconstruction. But who will pay the bill ? KUTh ENERGY, the government of Vanuatu or again the people ?

PRESS RELEASE DATED PORT-VILA FRIDAY 10TH FEBRUARY 2012 Updated
WTO/GOLD MINING TOWARDS A CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY

Apostle Wendy-Myriam HIMFORD, of Holy Church of All Nations and President of CHRISTIAN DEMOCRATIC PARTY (CDP), supported by indigenous communities and chiefs around Efate island, is calling upon Private-owned businesses of Vanuatu Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Vanuatu Tourism Industry and Vanuatu Fishing Industry to sign OCCUPY WTO PETITION against the accession of Vanuatu to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in the view of challenging WTO Bill unconstitutional before the Supreme Court of Vanuatu :

“Gold mining is about to explode in Vanuatu onshore and offshore. Scientific exploration has been carried out since 1970. Commercial exploration has been done secretively under the department of geology and mines. Prospecting licenses have been granted by successive ministers for land and natural resources for more than 15 years.

Vanuatu 01/12/2011-WTO rush is to seal all legal and financial advantages in favor of foreign mining companies to maximize exploitation profitability at the expenses of indigenous but also small-medium size foreign business companies.

Vanuatu ratifying Rome statutes of the International Criminal Court (ICC) in August 2011 is to seal all legal and financial obligations of the government of Vanuatu in case of human and environmental disasters defined as crimes against humanity potentially engineered by gold mining activities.

The legal framework is ready. International funding is available. Ownership of the natural resources is an issue for gold mining onshore and offshore belongs only to the government when traditionally natural resources belong to customs land owners.

Yet, gold mining is the most dangerous industry for public health and the environment. And gold mining in small islands is even more dangerous engineering earthquakes which could induce landslides, volcanic eruptions and tsunamis.”

If Vanuatu is ranked on the top list of the most dangerous places of the world by 2011 United Nations World Risk Report, it is not only because Vanuatu is located on the highest active seismic geotectonic zone of the “Pacific ring of fire” but moreover because Vanuatu is exposed to engineered man-made hazards such as earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, storms, floods and droughts under the consent of the government through widespread corruption.

I- OFFSHORE GOLD MINING

Offshore mining is known as Deep Sea mining throughout the Pacific because of its nearshore locality, nearby the coasts. Gold defined as sea-floor massive sulphides is formed by the heat of magma pressuring up. Gold deposits are identified under plume of black smokes under the sea and the same geotectonic gold deposits are identified under hot springs onshore.

Because of the so-high disaster-risks, a conspiracy between development partners, mining companies, politicians and relevant departments has been organized to mislead the people of the Republic of Vanuatu and all potential community and business stakeholders not to create social disturbance, public protest, panic and a fall of the investment climate of trust that could result a massive sale of tourism and hotel businesses and a runaway of foreign investors and capital out of Vanuatu to other safer and greener places to live and invest.

If the air was lately polluted in capital Port-Vila since June to December 2011 for instance, it was likely due to offshore mining activities using hazardous chemicals such as fuel and mercury provoking respiratory diseases like coughs, sore throats, asthma-like effects, headaches, dizziness to lung cancer and skin cancer. Not only air is contaminated but also rain water resulting acid rain, acid sea and contaminated fish causing blood cancer.

Bismarck Mining Corporation is exploring Vanua Lava offshore in the north, Nautilus Minerals and Dorado Ocean Resources are competing around Efate offshore and Erromango offshore in the centre when Neptune Minerals is targeting Aneytium offshore in the south of Vanuatu.
No matter the names, most companies are controlled by the mining giant Rio Tinto well known for its human and environmental tragedies around the world.

Uptoday, it is not clear under what laws all these mining companies are granted their prospecting licenses for only the Petroleum Act N0-13 of 1993 and the Geothermal Energy Act N0-6 of 1987 [CAP 197] allow offshore prospecting.

The government of Vanuatu has declared that only petroleum prospecting licenses have been granted for offshore exploration throughout Vanuatu when all these companies listed on stock exchange markets are officially publishing their tenements to raise funds.

II- ONSHORE GOLD MINING

When the 1986 Mines and Mineral Act [cap 190] is to explore gold mining onshore in Vanuatu, KUTh Energy listed in Australian Securities Exchange was granted a Geothermal Energy prospecting license to extract gold under the hot springs at Takara, North Efate.

The rush for land acquisition of Takara and Forari land by the government of Vanuatu is part of the legalized fraud of gold masterminded jointly by development partners and mining companies. Politicians aspiring for power and money, all bow down to neo-colonial and neo-liberal policies in the view of maintaining their political leadership amongst their people.

No matter the disaster mitigation risks, environmental pollution, adverse social impact and economic redistribution arising out of mining and mineral exploration, political parties from Alliance, National United Party to Union of Moderate Parties to Land and Justice and above all Vanua’aku Pati, all are WTO and gold mining supporters without any condition or reservation.
Environmental Problems on Land: Acid Drainage & Excavations

In the event of an induced human disaster, poor construction and building standards could aggravate the human catastrophe estimated at around 50,000 inhabitants for Efate alone and infrastructural damage of AUD 330 million caused by an earthquake and loss of AUD 40 million impacted by a tsunami in the central business district of Port-Vila .

Neither the World Bank, nor the mining multinationals want to bear a liability regime in case of a disaster tragedy scenario.

Vanuatu WTO-gold mining projects are putting your life and properties at risk at your own expenses. Please, sign, vote and contribute to the financial campaign of OCCUPY WTO before the Supreme Court before it is too late.

Insurance companies cover earthquakes, cyclones and tsunamis. Your life, the lives of your beloved, the lives of indigenous, foreigners and mine are all at risk by a joint WTO/UN/EU/WORLD BANK/SOPAC gold mining projects in Vanuatu and throughout the Pacific.

Your life is more valuable than money. Sign OCCUPY WTO PETITION to fight for your unalienable right to life.

PRESS RELEASE DATED PORT-VILA SUNDAY 12TH FEBRUARY 2012 updated 15 March 2012

REGENVANU FATHER & SON WTO SUPPORTERS

By Apostle Wendy-Myriam HIMFORD,
President of Christian Democratic Party
2012 General Elections Port-Vila candidate


The legal framework for gold mining in Vanuatu is ready. Vanua’aku Pati passed the 1986 Mines and Mineral Act [cap 190] and the Geothermal Energy Act N0-6 of 1987 [CAP 197] when Union of Moderate Parties passed the Petroleum Act N0-13 of 1993.

The Kilman-led government passed the Rome statutes of the International Criminal Court into force since 1st February 2012 to bear all legal and financial obligations in case of crimes against humanity potentially engineered by gold mining so as to protect the interests of mining multinationals and development partners.

The Kilman-led government of Vanuatu, the disguised opposition of joint Vanua’aku Pati and Union of Moderate Parties including Ralph Regenvanu, minister for justice who voted against WTO Bill, all are World Trade Organisation (WTO) supporters no matter their preaching and vote for or against because the government had the number to pass WTO Bill on 1st December 2011.

The electoral campaign mise en scène-scenario was just perfect one year before general elections 2012 to manipulate ignorant and good faith Christian electorate. Already Vanuatu Christian Council (VCC) seems to be split on the anti-WTO strategy since Pastor Alan Nafuki, of Presbyterian Church and of Vanua’aku Pati flew to the 8th WTO ministerial conference in Geneva without informing his counterparts of VCC. The question is which organization paid for the trip of Pastor Alan Nafuki to join the NGOs’s protest against WTO in Geneva mid December 2011. Since his return to Vanuatu, he has been avoiding any member of "SAY NO TO WTO".

For now 2 months since January 2012, the “SAY NO TO WTO” committee has been trying to organize a strategic meeting with Hon. Ralph Regenvanu, but in vain. Member of Parliament Ralph Regenvanu has been preaching that he was sacked mid January 2012 by Prime minister Kilman because of his vote against WTO Bill. Yet, he is not responding to the meeting convocation of the civil society led by VANGO, the umbrella NGO network.

Ralph, the son which “2008 electoral propaganda is the change” only unveils himself as the political continuity of the father Sethy Regenvanu, pastor of Presbyterian church, former minister of Vanua’aku Pati, and a key-think tank of the mining strategy of Vanuatu with UN-ESCAP and AusAID, as the first minister for land of the Republic of Vanuatu who has never put into place a land reform policy in the common interest of customs land owners but favoring his western colonial masters resulting the poor governance of Malvatumauri National Council of Chiefs.

The World Council of Churches (WCC), the New Zealand Council of Churches, Christian AID of the British Council of Churches and the Presbyterian Church of Australia, all funded the Presbyterian Church of Vanuatu to run the Independence electoral campaign of Vanua’aku Pati which today’s President is Presbyterian Elder Edward Natapei.

While Barak Sope, John Bani, Peter Taurokoto and Fred Timakata attended WCC conferences in Tanzania before 1980 Independence, Sethy Regenvanu visited WCC headquarters in Geneva exactly where WTO headquarters is also located.

Early 2012, when the legal framework is completed, financing is also available. The gold exploration has already reached pre-mining development stage. Vanuatu is about to experience the explosion of gold mining despite the human and environmental disaster-risks.

All political parties in power since 1980 independence till today have been working hand to hand to oppress customs land owners to either sell away their land to the government, either allow the government to exploit their land at their expenses.

Natural resources of sub-surfaces do not belong to customs land owners but to the Republic of Vanuatu which is the government. This is in total contradiction with the vision of 1980 Independence of Vanuatu and the purpose of the constitution.

Malvatumauri National Council of Chiefs has always been under the ministry of internal affairs
till it was strategically transferred to the ministry of justice under Ralph Regenvanu in 2011. Malvatumauri has never been given a proper financial budget by the government of Vanuatu to support their work and legal training on bills or laws of the Republic of Vanuatu to experience and analyze the neo-colonial and neo-liberal political game of the Presbyterian church and Vanua’aku Pati.

The Customary Land Tribunal created under the ministry for lands and natural resources was also strategically transferred to the ministry for justice under Ralph Regenvanu, it is then very easy for Malvatumauri National Council of Chiefs under the guidance of Ralph Regenvanu, minister for justice and former director of Vanuatu National Cultural Council, to appoint the panel of Vaturisu Efate Council of Chiefs to hear and judge land disputes on North Efate where joint WTO/World Bank USD 120 million KUTh Geothermal Energy project at Takara is at stake.

In the name of christianity and Melanesian customs, tradition and modernity, the Regenvanu father & son all along support the World Trade Organization through the UN sustainable development, land and natural resources strategy and the World Bank to exploit the gold mining of Vanuatu at the expenses of customs land owners and indigenous people.

PRESS RELEASE DATED 13TH FEBRUARY 2012

WENDY HIMFORD READY TO CHALLENGE WTO BILL UNCONSTITUTIONAL
BEFORE THE SUPREME COURT


Apostle Wendy-Myriam HIMFORD, President and Founder of Christian Democratic Party, says she is ready to challenge the WTO Bill unconstitutional before the Supreme Court.

Wendy HIMFORD launched early January 2012 the “OCCUPY WTO PETITION CAMPAIGN” to defend the constitutional rights of the people of Vanuatu who want VANUATU WTO FREE. Wendy HIMFORD is calling upon protestors and communities against WTO to sign the “OCCUPY WTO PETITION” for her to bring the list of their names before the Supreme Court.

Wendy HIMFORD says that the priority list of groups or individuals to challenge the WTO BILL UNCONSTITUTIONAL shall respectively be
a) the elected politicians : the Opposition, Vanua’aku Pati, Hon. Ralph Regenvanu former minister for justice who voted against WTO Bill, any member of parliament who voted against WTO Bill and
b) the civil society : Vanuatu Christian Council, Anglican Church, Presbyterian, Malvatumauri National Council of Chiefs, the Chamber of Commerce and Industry, VANGO and Trade Unions.

Wendy HIMFORD says : “If no elected member of parliament is implementing his vote against WTO before the Supreme Court, this failure of moral and political obligation will turn out to be a parliamentary hypocrisy again.

I will be honored to challenge the WTO Bill before the Supreme Court.


I stopped the accession of Vanuatu to WTO in 2001 as Private Secretary to the deputy Prime minister and minister for trade. If necessary, I will continue the fight on the legal playing field to protect Vanuatu from neo-colonialism and neo-liberalism.

I just cannot accept, as a minister of Yahshua, King of Justice and Peace, that mining companies through the support of international institutions, are bidding free of charge all assets of the indigenous people of the Republic of Vanuatu.”

The principle of permanent sovereignty over natural resources should apply to Indigenous people as per the vision of Vanuatu 1980 Independence and the purpose of the Constitution that “All land in the Republic of Vanuatu belongs to the indigenous custom owners and their descendants.”

There are a number of reasons for this :
(a) Indigenous people are colonized peoples in the economic, political and historical sense;
(b) Indigenous people suffer from unfair and unequal economic arrangements typically suffered by other colonized peoples;
(c) The principle of permanent sovereignty over natural resources is necessary to level the economic and political playing field and to provide protection against unfair and oppressive arrangements;
(d) Indigenous people have a right to development and actively to participate in the realization of this right; sovereignty over their natural resources is an essential prerequisite for this; and
(e) The natural resources original belonged to the Indigenous people concerned and were not, in most situations, freely and fairly given up.

In other words, I am accountable to God to protect the universal human rights of Indigenous people of the Republic of Vanuatu.
Oppressive, fraudulent, and other unjust arrangements shall be avoided at the third millennium, especially when USA and Europe, in financial default, which means bankruptcy, are no longer economic role-models for the rest of the world.

There is an alternative to WTO, which is KEYNESIAN ECONOMIC PRINCIPLES which are promoted by all economists in Europe right now to get out of the Eurozone crisis.”
