Autonomy Movements in Corsica, Patagonia (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 12/18/17 4:42 am)

The crisis of Catalonia/Catalunya has rather faded away, but there are crises of a similar nature all over the world.

For instance, in the first round of the local elections in Corsica, the autonomists/nationalists of the "Pe a Corsica" have triumphed with a solid 45.4% of the vote, while the more independentist "Core in Fronte" received a significant 6.7%. This is a great victory for the Coricans and a great débâcle for the various "French parties."

The autonomists have assured Paris that they will not ask for independence for 10 years. Let's hope that it will be only 10 months. In the last election the autonomist Gilles Simeoni won, but with only 35.3% of the vote.

Now I would like to call attention to another developing problem, the "Reino de Patagonia" (the Kingdom of Patagonia) of 800,000 square Km. It is an area almost unhabited but extremely rich and important. The independence of Patagonia has been requested by some Mapuche groups, RAM (Resistencia Ancestral Mapuche) and MAP (Movimiento Mapuche Autónomo). But the heart of the trouble seems to be in Bristol, UK, the headquarters of the MIL (Mapuche International Link), which receives funding from Soros.

They even refer to an ephemeral Reino of Patagonia which was proclaimed in 1858 by the Frenchman Orelie Antonie de Tounens, who proclaimed himself king of Araucania y Patagonia.

It is "strange" that the trouble is coming from the UK. Maybe they want to apply what General Carlos María de Alvear (1789 -1852) wrote to Lord Percy Smythe 6th Viscount of Strangford: "These territories wish to be part of Great Britain."

But the big trouble may arise by the fact that the rich British businessman Joe Lewis ($5.3 billion) has bought huge territories in Patagonia (in Argentina and Chile), around Lago Escondido, and he is running such areas as a personal state where Argentinians and Chileans are not welcome. It seems that Goggle Earth is neutralizing the view of the area where there are enormous new constructions. The strange thing is that the area is used by Israeli soldiers (8000 to 10,000 per year) for two weeks of "vacation."  Chile has already granted Israel a military base for submarines in its extreme South.

Perhaps when Israel finally finishes kicking out the Palestinians from the Greater Israel they will start to kick out the Chilean and the Argentinians from Patagonia. After all Argentina or Uganda were the alternative to the Palestine in the early 1900s.

By the way, was the sinking of the submarine San Juan an accident or a "fishing" fact?

JE comments:  I Googled "Israel submarine base Chile" and did not find much, although this 2013 piece is interesting.  It speaks of the "intromisión sionista [Zionist incursion] en el sur de Chile," with photos of business signs in Hebrew.  What gives?  My first thought is conspiracy theory, but...?
