"If an Arab and a Jew can look at one another and see the Akashic lineage and see the one family, there is hope. If they can see that their differences no longer require that they kill one another, then there is a beginning of a change in history. And that's what is happening now. All of humanity, no matter what the spiritual belief, has been guilty of falling into the historic trap of separating instead of unifying. Now it's starting to change. There's a shift happening."

“ … Here is another one. A change in what Human nature will allow for government. "Careful, Kryon, don't talk about politics. You'll get in trouble." I won't get in trouble. I'm going to tell you to watch for leadership that cares about you. "You mean politics is going to change?" It already has. It's beginning. Watch for it. You're going to see a total phase-out of old energy dictatorships eventually. The potential is that you're going to see that before 2013.

They're going to fall over, you know, because the energy of the population will not sustain an old energy leader ..."

DW condemns arrest of correspondent in Chad

Deutsche Welle, 14 May 2013

Deutsche Welle's Director General, Erik Bettermann, has called for the immediate release of a DW correspondent in Chad. Eric Topona was arrested on May 6 on specious charges.

An investigating magistrate in N'Djamena had summoned Topona as a "witness in a defamation case." On site, the 29-year-old was then told the actual reason for his arrest. In fact, he himself was accused of "endangering the constitutional order." He supposedly published "subversive content" on the Internet, articles which, among other things, mentioned a "people’s uprising." According to Chadian law, such accusations could lead to a life-long prison sentence for Topona.

Eric Topona, who currently also serves as secretary general of the Union of Chadian Journalists (UJT), denies the accusations, insisting that none of the articles involved were written by him. Topona, whose hearing, according to DW sources, isn't scheduled to take place until May 25th, claims that the investigators didn't even check the authenticity of the articles in question.

On Monday, May 13, DW Director General Erik Bettermann stated: "Deutsche Welle is extremely concerned about Eric Topona and condemns his arrest. I hereby call for the Chadian authorities to respect press freedom and the rule of law." It is unacceptable, he added, that the DW journalist is being held for days without a hearing. "We demand his immediate release," Bettermann said.

DW correspondent Topona has already been threatened by the Chadian authorities in the past. UJT President Mahamat Abba Moussa told DW that the media in Chad is concerned, and that the mood among journalists there is tense.
