USAID/DFID target tens of millions Dalit women in India for forcible sterilizations to fight global warming

The UK Telegraph’s investigating report a few months ago revealed that new evidence suggested British Aid to India is more important to the donor than to the recipient who dismissed the so-called assistance as:
“...a peanut in our total development exercises. According to a leaked memo, the foreign minister, Nirumpama Rao, proposed ‘not to avail [of] any further DFID [British] assistance with effect from 1st April 2011,’ because of the ‘negative publicity of Indian poverty promoted by DFID.
But officials at DFID, Britain’s Department for International Development, told the Indians that cancelling the programme would cause ‘grave political embarrassment’ to Britain, according to sources in Delhi.”
But the issue was far more serious than this. In fact, Indian parliamentarians, then more bluntly told the UK to keep their bloody aid money as they felt that since UK now has been reduced to a third world economy, they may need it more than India! They were reacting angrily to a section of British parliamentarians who expressed their disappointment that despite Britain being one of the top three aid givers to the country, India did not favour Britain for a multi-billion dollar fighter aircraft deal as sort of their quid pro quo expectation!

The ugly face of international aid being all about increased exports for the donor country and their touted altruism was just a camouflage was here on full display for everyone to see. If India were to show the door to Dfid, then it is bound to create a ripple effect with more countries being embolden to act similarly. This would have been a big blow for Britain and their NGOs internationally and so they were extremely relieved that India consented to their request not to stop their aid flow. But the only people who celebrated in India David Cameron's decision were those who lived within the British Aid Enclaves viz. those who worked for Dfid and UK NGOs like Oxfam; ChristianAid; ActionAid etc and their NGO partners who live lavishly off the aid and undoubtedly the only section who benefited from such aid in the country.

In contrast, the poor, the touted target of their aid continued to end up being increasingly hurt by British Aid. Dr Benny Peiser of the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), UK in a brilliant exposé reveals how UK funding is currently targeting 9.5 million sterilizations of the poorest of the poor as part of their “global warming solution”. But as Indian media reported, this was not confined only to Dfid but also US and other European government funding.
What makes this crime more horrendous is the fact that their primary target belongs to a community called Dalits the traditional social “outcastes” of Indian society who are subject to all kinds of exploitation and atrocities. Indian NGOs led by Centre for Health and Social Justice (CHSJ) accused the West, particularly the UK of trying to foster Colonialism, Racism, for Funding Forced Sterilisations in the name of fighting global warming. You can read Bharat’s article and a Russian TV News Video at the end of this introduction for the full story.

Court documents filed in India earlier this month claim that many victims have been left in pain, with little or no aftercare. Across the country, there have been numerous reports of deaths and of pregnant women suffering miscarriages after being selected for sterilisation without being warned that they would lose their unborn babies. One sterilization office was set up in a local school. Police raided the makeshift sterilization camp and found video evidence that the NGO who run the “facility” were abusing the women who came to have the sterilization procedure.
Yet a working paper published by the UK's Department for International Development in 2010 cited the need to fight climate change as one of the key reasons for pressing ahead with such programmes. The document argued that reducing population numbers would cut greenhouse gases, although it warned that there were "complex human rights and ethical issues" involved in forced population control.

The latest allegations centre on the India's poorest states of Madhya Pradesh and Bihar, both targeted by the UK government for aid after a review of funding last year. In February, the Chief minister of Madhya Pradesh had to publicly warn off his officials after widespread reports of forced sterilisation.

It is significant to note that UK NGOs operating in India - Oxfam; ChristianAid; ActionAid etc - all who overtly claim to champion the cause of Dalit Rights in the country are keeping a pin drop silence on this incident. So are US funded NGOs like CARE, People’s Watch; Dalit Foundation; Jan Vikas, Indian Institute of Dalit Studies, National Federation of Dalit Women (NFDW) etc  In fact, so are the Dalit Human Rights groups, all deeply dependent on funding by European & US based NGO’s generosity.
Significantly within the CHSJ network is the country’s premier Dalit Human Rights body, National Campaign on Dalit Human Rights (NCHDR) who are heavily funded by the EC and ChristianAid, UK.  The NCDHR raise all kind of petty issues related to Dalits but yet do not utter a word on this particular issue. Highly dependent on foreign funds, particularly Europe and the US, these NGOs rather betray their own cause - their raison d’etre - than attack Western Government’s aid policy which is why they are seen as foreign government stooges in this country!
The moot question is why sterilizations are considered as a solution to global warming? The reason is not too complicated to fathom - global warming is just another name for population control as both are different expressions of the Malthusian ideology:
"Instead of recommending cleanliness to the poor, we should encourage contrary habits ... we should ...crowd more people into the houses, and court the return of the plague. ... But above all, we should reprobate specific remedies for ravaging diseases; and those benevolent, but mistaken men, who have thought they were doing a service to mankind by projecting schemes for the total extirpation of particular disorders. If by these and similar means the annual mortality were increased from 1 in 36 or 40, to 1 in 18 or 20, we might possibly every one of us marry at the age of puberty, and yet few be absolutely starved." -Thomas Malthus, The Essay on Population, 5th edition, 1817.
“A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells; the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people…. We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer. The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.” –Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb

“In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill…. But in designating them as the enemy, we fall into the trap of mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy, then, is humanity itself.” –Club of Rome, The First Global Revolution, 1991

“In the event I am reborn, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.” – Prince Philip, quoted in Deutsche Presse Agentur, August 1988
There are two basic kinds of global warmists. The first know you can’t have too many cars without too many people but they can’t make themselves say “Stop breeding you f****ing wetbacks!” So they take out their rage by transferring them to cars, aeroplanes and ships by advocating that these be made more expensive for the common man.
The second is the cruder variety. “We should supply contraceptives to all those 180 million people in the developing world,” says Norman Myers of the World Wildlife Fund. “Population growth is directly involved in the pollution and degradation of our environment” adds Sierra Club head Carl Pope. Whatever the difference between the two, the impact is always the same. They always leave the global elite off the hook and target exclusively the poorest and weakest in society. And they call this Climate Justice!
Dr. Abhuit Das, the director of the Centre for Health and Social Justice, says that this discovery “smells of racism” referencing population control in India under the guise of saving the planet as a plot to simply reduce the Indian population for its sake. Das says that the UK should worry about their own greenhouse emissions and leave the Indian population alone: “[The UK] says that the poor is the problem when it comes to greenhouse gases. This is simply unacceptable.” 

Women’s rights advocates are angered by this misappropriation of the sterilization procedure. To simply mass sterilize women for the concentrated agenda of eliminating the Indian population is a violation of women’s rights, say the advocates. There is evidence of quotas to be reached by the sterilization camp directors and bonuses for exceeding those quotas. This reduces this procedure to a business opportunity and not a medical procedure that needs to be handled with respect and care.  
So poor Dalits in India with one of the “smallest carbon footprints” globally are targeted for sterilizations as part of the “global warming solution” while the global elite with gigantic carbon footprints wherein  NGOs like Oxfam and ChristianAid are apart of; are the perpetrators of this crime against humanity. If they are so intend of reducing human population why not make it compulsory that only individuals having got rid of their testes or ovaries are eligible to join NGOs like Oxfam? But no such rule operates in these organizations. Better still, they can make the supreme sacrifice - killing themselves to save the world instead of driving innocents like the Dalit community to death and torture!

US & UK Funding Forced Sterilizations in India

U.S. and British taxpayers are funding brutal forced sterilizations and a growing network of appalling “camps” in India through foreign-aid programs and even the World Bank, according to human rights activists and news reports. But as the scandal surrounding the controversial population-control campaign grows with an Indian Supreme Court investigation into the matter, governments are publicly distancing themselves from the program.
Citing dubious United Nations theories about “climate change,” population-reduction fanatics — especially in the West — have been working fiendishly around the world for decades to scale back the number of humans. Their methods include everything from promoting abortion and contraception to developing sterilization programs targeting poor women in particular. And the barbarity is largely being bankrolled by taxpayers and elite donors in the U.S. and the United Kingdom.

According to recent reports, the foreign-aid “family planning” money is being used by Indian authorities to forcibly sterilize Indians using outright deception or even coercion. In some cases, authorities coerce families into consent by threatening to withhold food or other essentials. Sometimes the victims are bribed using Western tax money without being told what the procedures really accomplish — let alone the risks.

The consequences, meanwhile, have included numerous bleeding deaths from botched operations, miscarriages, infections, and long-term health problems for the victims, according to reports from around India. Generally poverty-stricken and under-educated people — who often hail from lower “castes” and do not even have a chance to object — are targeted for the barbaric treatment.

“I tell you they treat them not as human beings, but as cattle or goats,” Human Rights Law Network activist Devika Biswas told the National Catholic Register after filing a petition about the matter with the nation’s Supreme Court. “They just cut and take out veins. They were bleeding profusely. It is butchery.”

Last month, activists including Biswas submitted video evidence and sworn affidavits by victims showing that population-control officials were completely out of control. Consider, for example, the story of just one night at one sterilization camp in the Indian state of Bihar: More than 50 poor women were allegedly rounded up and sterilized in wildly unsanitary conditions by unqualified “medical staff.”

A video of the tragedy presented to the court showed all of the women crying out in pain after having been quickly sterilized that night by staff using a flashlight for illumination. Nobody came to help the writhing victims. One pregnant woman even lost her unborn baby to the procedure. The court gave state and national authorities two months to respond to the charges, according to news reports about the case.

“All of them are forced,” Biswas was quoted as saying. “Generally, the people in the village are very simple. They are very poor. Some of them married at the age of 12 or 13. They do not know what it means. They are told it will be good for them. They are not told it will make them permanently unable to bear children. No risks are explained to them.”

According to reports, a perverse system of incentives helps the system mass-sterilize countless victims. Doctors, for instance, are paid bonuses if they operate on more than a certain number of people per day. So-called “motivators,” who go out in search of hapless prey for the schemes, are also rewarded based on how many people they can round up for the procedures.

India, of course, has around 1.2 billion people; and that is despite a brutal and coercive mass-sterilization campaign from the 1970s that was only “halted” after massive riots broke out and forced the government to back down. But for Western elites convinced that people are bad — either for the “environment” or the “climate” — the number is still way too high.

“They’re using bad science, outdated theories of population and an unproven theory about climate change to justify real harm to real people in real time,” explained Population Research Institute chief Steven Mosher, noting that elitists have long used a wide range of largely bogus crises to justify barbaric eugenics campaigns around the world. And it is still going on today from Asia and Africa to Latin America – often with subsidies extracted from Western taxpayers at the behest of shadowy senior policy makers.
In the U.K., which once ruled over India as its colonial master, the Department for International Development (DFID) gave a grant totaling more than $250 million in 2005 to the so-called “Reproductive Child and Health Program.” The scheme was supposed to offer “family planning” services to Indian women – and sterilization is by far the most common “service” provided under the plan.

The U.K. government, of course, responded to the recent scandal over forced sterilizations by denying that taxpayers were funding it. “British aid has not been used for forced sterilization now or in the past,” a DFID spokesperson claimed in a recent statement, though an official with the department later told the Wall Street Journal that tax funds were indeed being used for “voluntary” sterilizations.

“The government of India has strict guidelines for quality of family-planning services, which include ensuring consent,” the statement alleged, apparently oblivious to the reality on the ground. “The program started in 2006 under the last government. Support will end completely next year.”

Though critics have said the population-control scheme smacks of racism and neo-colonialism, one of the project’s stated goals was to slash India’s fertility rate, supposedly to deal with “climate change.” And the program could be considered a stunning success — at least in terms of its designers’ goals.

According to a government report cited by the U.K. Guardian, some 500,000 Indians were sterilized in 2008 alone. Experts say the true figure is much higher. About half of India’s 26 state governments, meanwhile, have reportedly already achieved compliance with a controversial UN dictate seeking to restrict population to two children per mother. And a “National Family Health Survey” cited by the Global Post reported that some 37 percent of Indian women have undergone sterilization so far. The rest are apparently still in the crosshairs.

American taxpayers have also contributed to the controversial programs. In recent years, for example, the U.S. government distributed well over $20 million in taxpayer funds per year just to sponsor “family planning” and “reproductive health” programs in India. But like British officials, American authorities involved in the scheme attempted to downplay the growing scandal as well.
“USAID programs provide technical support to improve family planning information and services,” a spokesman for the agency wasquoted as saying, alleging that the program was committed to improving the health of vulnerable Indians. “USAID assistance has helped improve maternal health and reduced infant mortality across India.”
Despite the platitudes about helping Indians, however, analysts say something much more sinister is going on. Consider the fact that at the highest levels of the Obama administration are people like “Science Czar” John Holdren, who suggested controlling population by forced abortions and secret drugging administered by a “planetary regime” in his highly controversial book “Ecoscience.”

Decades ago, senior officials were on the same page. Under the leadership of top establishment figure Henry Kissinger, for instance, the U.S. National Security Council outlined widely criticized official policies to curb population growth among the poor in the infamous “Memorandum 200.” Citing dubious theories about alleged overpopulation, the report proposed a massive global campaign that included propaganda, contraception, the use of food for coercion, and more. India was one of the top targets.

Like in Communist China, where the regime enforces a brutal “one-child policy” by forced abortion if necessary, India has a growing gender imbalance resulting in far more men than women. The consequences will be rough, according to experts. But Western elites — apparently undeterred by the tragedies and despair caused by the “population control” they promote at taxpayer expense — show no signs of scaling back support for the brutality.
