They were briefed by the medical team who informed them that the former President's condition had become critical over the past 24 hours."<br /> <br /> In Sunday's statement, Zuma also discussed the government's acknowledgement a day earlier that an ambulance carrying Mandela to the Pretoria hospital two weeks ago had engine trouble, requiring the former president to be transferred to another ambulance for his journey.<br /> <br /> Zuma said that in that incident, "all care was taken to ensure that his medical condition was not compromised".<br /> <br /> He also dismissed media reports that Mandela had suffered a heart attack, saying: "There is no truth at all in that report''.<br /> <br /> Al Jazeera's Tania Page, reporting from Johannesburg, said that while people in South Africa were very conscious that Mandela was frail, many said they still loved him and needed him.<br /> <br /> "People are getting used to the idea that one day, perhaps soon, he will not be with them. It won't be a surprise that his condition has deteriotated ... But [his death] will nonetheless still come as a shock to South Africans," she said.<br /> <br /> Mandela, who became South Africa's first black president after the end of apartheid in 1994, was hospitalised on June 8 for what the government said was a recurring lung infection.<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.aljazeera.com/news/africa/2013/06/201362320023466697.html">http://www.aljazeera.com/news/africa/2013/06/201362320023466697.html</a> Tax havens and global impoverishment tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2013-03-17:2182797:Video:2193373 2013-03-17T02:36:05.371Z Napoleon Bonaparte http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/napoleonbonaparte <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/nelson-mandela-south-africa-s-anti-apartheid-icon-dies-aged-95"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/UytU4r62uFNbbqaGtOgKhedE*Vmpth0-X5ymo3MRqiPjfWMO1yOAPjnigcZeEm5O15*X5P3IMwVpKyBA*QVIdJsjlZz1KA32/1047643515.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>The world is at a critical juncture where the necessity to rethink our economic modelling, the values of consumption and accumulation have become critical.

The planet, not only the people, simply cannot sustain the massive inequality that exists. Despite what we are told and sold, inequality is not inevitable. Global impoverishment will end only when those who gain from the system are held to account and the rules of the system are radically transformed.<br /> <br /> While the transformation of the system will require multiple strategies, there has been a renewed focus since the economic crashes in the Global North on the reform of the global financial system. The rules of the system are skewed to the few individuals and corporations that reap benefits from the world's resources and operate with a veil of secrecy to make excessive profits while avoiding tax obligations which would, at the very least, lessen national tax burdens from ordinary citizens and contribute to essential services.<br /> <br /> People are mobilising to end these practices. An unusual sight met London commuters this week: a subvertising campaign launched on phone boxes across the city, bringing a distinct message on the causes of global inequality. Bearing a striking graphic of the City of London as an "urban island paradise", at first glance the adverts look like a tourist promotion for the capital, but they are in fact a campaign encouraging Londoners to take a new look at their city: "Visit the City of London - The Tax Haven Capital of the World".<br /> <br /> <a href="http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2013/03/201331614372400928.html">http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/opinion/2013/03/201331614372400928.html</a> Ron Paul Supporters Have Good Intentions? tag:www.atheistnexus.org,2011-11-03:2182797:Video:1718944 2011-11-03T03:56:44.089Z George hawkins http://www.atheistnexus.org/profile/gphhawkins <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/ron-paul-supporters-have-good-intentions"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="180" src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/5wadJeqLuUyJi*u1HaNGVvGwxiRdMBUu6f79RpuK4xpU8jgqUCUOXsLIl3IR4wE2UcNfwBVDzKWQPAWx9Cj9d*45TH6cigHt/983379010.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>Website:<br></br> <a href="http://www.tinyurl.com/65psa2j">http://www.tinyurl.com/65psa2j</a><br></br> ( <a href="http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/">http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/</a> )<br></br> <br></br> My Facebook Page:…<br></br> <a href="http://www.atheistnexus.org/video/ron-paul-supporters-have-good-intentions"><br /> <img src="http://api.ning.com:80/files/5wadJeqLuUyJi*u1HaNGVvGwxiRdMBUu6f79RpuK4xpU8jgqUCUOXsLIl3IR4wE2UcNfwBVDzKWQPAWx9Cj9d*45TH6cigHt/983379010.jpeg?width=240&amp;height=180" width="240" height="180" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a><br />Website:<br /> <a href="http://www.tinyurl.com/65psa2j">http://www.tinyurl.com/65psa2j</a><br /> ( <a href="http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/">http://www.gphhawkinsrationalistsociety.weebly.com/</a> )<br /> <br /> My Facebook Page:<br /> <a href="https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gphhawkins/246909378669578">https://www.facebook.com/pages/Gphhawkins/246909378669578</a><br /> <br /> Podcast:<br /> <a href="http://www.blogtalkradio.com/gphhawkins">http://www.blogtalkradio.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Tweet with me:<br /> <a href="http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins">http://www.twitter.com/gphhawkins</a><br /> <br /> Blogtv:<br /> <a href="http://www.blogtv.com/people/gph_hawkins">http://www.blogtv.com/people/gph_hawkins</a> WHY millions are leaving ISLAM (2)?
