Gremach Infrastructure's Google India Attack,Mozambique Coal Baron Squalor

20-08-2008 19:15

The original purpose of this article post was to point out that India's
Gremach Infrastructure Equipments & Projects Ltd that is threatening
to sue Google because of an anonymous poster 'using the name 'Toxic
Writer' criticized the company on, a site that allows
individuals to create blogs....' is no more than an India stock market
version of U.S. incorporated penny stock pump and dump scams and has
lost 80% or so of investor money in the last few months.If anything
their own investors it should be sueing them. However when I say
'investors' -I do not mean such international stock sharks and hedge
fund entities as Merrill Lynch or Templeton Funds or Eureopean Swiss
Finance Corporation or Caytman Island based LB India Holdings Cayman
II Ltd., offshores.These international securities parasites are in my
opinion part of the problem and have aided and abetted Gremach and its
insiders and promoters,such as or particularly Mr. Ratanlal Tamakuwala
and Mr Rishi Raj Agarwal,to take retail or small investors for a

"Salute" - Speaking Truth to Power at the Olympics- the Price Paid and the Solid

20-08-2008 17:00

As Tibet solidarity and other human rights activists are rounded up in Beijing, a designated protest pen is transformed into a trap from where people disappear (77 applications were made to enter this "protest pen" - all have been withdrawn, suspended or rejected!), a Chinese girl is ditched from the Olympic Opening Ceremony for not having "the look" to go with the voice, the Party promotes, the corporates profit and prima don athletes are expected to keep a housebroken silence - one's mind is cast back to an iconic image from Mexico '68.
