Global Research / Prof Michel Chossudovsky
People Worldwide are being impoverished.
Protests are unfolding against inflation, rising energy prices and the collapse of social services.
It is important to address the broader picture and the history of the last three years.
Large sectors of the World population commencing in February-March 2020 have been marginalized and impoverished. Famines currently prevail in all major regions of the World.
What is at stake is an engineered economic depression which from the outset in January 2020 has created economic and social chaos at the level of the entire planet.
Protest Movement in the United Kingdom
The protest movement in the U.K is largely centered on the impacts of inflation, the loss of purchasing power and the fraudulent hike in energy prices, presented to public opinion as a means to combating “climate change” and the the dangers of CO2 emissions.

According to Don Hank:
These protesters are only addressing a very tiny part of the issue, ie, demanding government intervention to raise salaries.
Unfortunately, these Brits are barking up the wrong tree, unaware that their own government has mortally wounded its own economy with its Malthusian policies of impoverishment — espoused by both US Democrats and the European Greens — that have put the real economy completely out of reach in the West. The UK government currently faces a self-inflicted economic slump that no government official or politician is prepared or willing to tackle head-on, and nothing of import will result from these protests because the government is going broke and neither it nor its clueless citizens recognize the underlying cause of the problem.
It ought to be obvious that a broke government that is at the origin of the low salaries in the first place can’t help even if it wanted to. And the weak and clumsy attempts of politicians and central banks are all in vain. …

Three Years: Deep-seated Economic and Social Crisis
The broader issue of causality of this crisis cannot be disregarded, namely fraudulent covid mandates, engineered financial crises starting in February 2020, followed by successive lockdowns starting in March 2020 which essentially confine the laborand freeze the workplace, which inevitably leads to economic and social chaos.
Most of the people who are protesting in the United Kingdom are the victims of both the covid lockdowns as well as the mRNA vaccine launched in December 2020.
From the outset, the trade unions endorsed the covid consensus including the imposition of the lockdowns, which constitute a derogation of workers rights.
Trade unions leaders have betrayed their members at the grassroots. They are routinely and selectively invited to Davos for informal consultations.
The outbreak of the war in Ukraine in February 2022, including the sanctions regime, Washington’s pressures on the European Union to curtail imports of gas from Russia has also played a key role in the hike of energy prices, not to mention the price of food.
Protest is Not Enough
We are in solidarity with the protest movement. But “Protest” is not enough. Corrupt politicians must be removed from office. What is required is a mass movement which questions the legitimacy of corrupt government officials, who are acting on behalf of powerful financial groups. The latter are the architects of of a Worldwide process of economic engineering and social chaos.
Everybody is Indebted, The Billionaires and the Creditors Call the Shots
At the outset of 2023, its Global Debt worldwide, including
- public debt (fiscal crisis of the State),
- corporate debt leading to bankruptcies,
- the debt of small and medium size enterprises,
- personal and family debts,
- home mortgages
It’s a Worldwide Process of Engineered Impoverishment
Debt is the driving force which is leading to mass poverty.
Families Worldwide are unable to make ends meet, to pay their rent, to pay their mortgage, to pay their monthly gas and electricity bills.
In the words of Klaus Schwab: “Own nothing, be happy”.
What is required is real “regime change” supported by a broad-based grassroots network which confronts both the governments as well as the architects of this economic and social crisis, which from the outset in early 2020 hav been involved fraud, fake science and corruption.
The Road Ahead
Below is an excerpt from the concluding Chapter XV of my book entitled: The Worldwide Corona Crisis, Global Coup d’État Against Humanity
The Road Ahead: Building a Worldwide Movement Against “Corona Tyranny”
“We do not seek to negotiate with corrupt government officials. We question their legitimacy. They are liars.
Our intent is to confront the powerful actors behind this criminal endeavor which is literally destroying people’s lives worldwide, while creating divisions within society. The impacts on mental health on population groups worldwide are devastating.
The numerous lockdowns documented in previous chapters (stay at home of the workforce), fear campaigns, COVID-19 policy mandates imposed on approximately 193 member states of the United Nations have also contributed to undermining and destabilizing:
-the very fabric of civil society and its institutions including education, culture and the arts, social gatherings, sports, entertainment, etc.
-all public sector activities including physical and social infrastructure, social services, law enforcement, etc.
-all major private sector activities which characterize national, regional and local economies including small, medium and large corporate enterprises, family farms, industry, wholesale and retail trade, the urban services economy, transport companies, airlines, hotel chains, etc.
-the structures of the global economy including international commodity trade, investment, import and export relations between countries, etc. The entire landscape of the global economy has been shattered.
What is required is the development of a broad-based grassroots network which confronts both the architects of this crisis as well as all levels of government (i.e. national, states, provinces, municipalities, etc.) involved in imposing the vaccine as well carrying out the lockdown and closure of economic activity.
This network would be established (nationally and internationally) at all levels of society, in towns and villages, workplaces, parishes, trade unions, farmers organizations, professional associations, business associations, student unions, and veterans associations. Church groups would be called upon to integrate this movement.
“Spreading the word” through social media and independent online media outlets will be undertaken bearing in mind that Google as well as Facebook are instruments of censorship.
Legal procedures and protests are unfolding in all major regions of the world. As part of a worldwide network of initiatives, it is important to establish mechanisms of communication, dialogue and exchange within and between countries.
The creation of such a movement, which forcefully challenges the legitimacy of the financial elites, Big Pharma, et al., as well as the structures of political authority at the national level, is no easy task. It will require a degree of solidarity, unity and commitment unparalleled in world history.
What is required is the breaking down of political and ideological barriers within society (i.e. between political parties) while acting with a single voice towards building a worldwide consensus against tyranny.
Worldwide solidarity and human dignity is the driving force” (Excerpt from Chapter 15)
