The Old World Order morphs into the New World Order as Pluto goes direct on zero Capricorn...
"The old system of international economic co-operation is over," British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said. "The new system, as of today, has begun."
Apparently the G20 is now taking the reins from the G8 as the body responsible for world economic issues. China takes over from the United States?
And the Sun in Libra (diplomatic relations) squares Pluto in Capricorn (hidden strategic manoevres within power hierarchies) on the first degrees of those cardinal signs. The initial push...

How many people know the details or ramifications of this strategic move going down behind closed doors, guarded by a few thousand riot police in Pittsburgh? How many people know what's on the agenda?
I'm not sure who elected these yahoos as "world government" in the first place, but now we've got 20 figureheads supposedly "running" the world's economy.
The G20 includes:
(From CBC online poster 48dumas.)
1 * Argentina: President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner
2 * Australia: Prime Minister Kevin Rudd
3 * Brazil: President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva
4 * Canada: Prime Minister Stephen Harper
5 * China: President Hu Jintao
6 * France: President Nicolas Sarkozy
7 * Germany: Chancellor Angela Merkel
8 * India: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh
9 * Indonesia: President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono
10 * Italy: Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi
11 * Japan: Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama
12 * Mexico: President Felipe Calderón
13 * Russia: President Dmitry Medvedev
14 * Saudi Arabia: King Abdullah
15 * South Africa: President Jacob Zuma
16 * South Korea: President Lee Myung-bak
17 * Turkey: Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan
18 * United Kingdom: Prime Minister Gordon Brown
19 * United States: President Barack Obama
The 20th member is the European Union, which is represented by the rotating Council presidency and the European Central Bank.
In addition to these 20 members, the following forums and institutions, as represented by their respective chief executive officers, participate in meetings of the G-20:
* International Monetary Fund
* World Bank
* International Monetary and Financial Committee
* Development Committee of the IMF and World Bank
There's an apropos Merc Retro typo in the photo caption run by CBC online:
"The leaders of the G20 summit gather around the meeting table fat Pittsburgh Convention Centre on Friday. (Jim Bourg/Reuters)"
Article here. Although, the CBC article is just official line garbage. It's pretty hilarious (black humour) that people have to read the list of G20 nations as well as the connection to the World Bank and International Monetary Fund from an online commenter rather than in the CBC article itself. Since CBC was stripped to the bone and moved to mostly videojournalists to "save money," its coverage is little better than the privates. I suppose it's what you would expect these days from state-funded journalism, but it used to be so much better. A long, long time ago...or was it really so long ago?
There are tonnes of videos on YouTube that show the insane police presence - martial law, in actuality.
A CNN reporter was hit by some tear gas (*gasp!*), which apparently is a big story. The hundreds of thousands of protesters who have been gassed and shot with rubber bullets (which cause way more pain than the word "rubber" would lead you to believe) at protests over the past 15 years don't make the news, but here is a video about CNN Guy taking a hit of tear gas.
If the robotic Big Brother voice and the use of sound weapons (on anyone, let alone legally protesting citizens) don't disturb the hell out of you, I fear you've already accepted the New World Order.
Note: YouTube removed the first video I linked to showing the use of the sound weapons (LRADs), so I posted another.
The sound weapons are called LRADs (Long Range Acoustic Devices) and were "originally intended to be used by American warships to warn incoming vessels approaching without permission."
Nice to see they've adapted the use of these weapons for use on U.S. citizens voicing their opposition and practising lawful assembly in the streets. These weapons can permanently destroy a person's hearing.
They used CS gas (a derivative of cyanide), tear gas, pepper spray, water cannons filled with chemicals and rubber bullets on us in Quebec City at the Free Trade Area of the Americas protest in 2001, but I haven't seen these sound weapons being used before. Disturbing doesn't even cover it. It's being reported on internet news sources that this is the first time in history sound weapons have been used on citizens. Escalation of militarized police states...
Pluto in Capricorn relating to control of hierarchical institutions and control of people through those institutions, especially those institutions related to the use of force with a top-down chain of command.
Civilian protesters are also reporting seeing police with microwave guns, also referred to as Active Denial Systems. No, folks. This is not science fiction. I wish it were. These ADSs are "millimeter-wave transmitters primarily used for crowd control," informally called pain rays. Basically, these weapons direct electromagnetic radiation at a person "causing an intensely painful sensation of extreme heat." I think we can see from the overuse of taser weapons (and related injuries and deaths) where the possiblities of misuse lie with these things...
All the while, the corporate-owned media writes the protesters off as "anarchists." hahaha Oooooh, the big, scary anarchists! They're gonna get you if you don't allow thousands of riot police to roam your streets and tell you what you can do and where you can go. While so-called elected leaders sell your country to the highest corporate bidder behind closed doors.
You can see Pluto in Capricorn trying to unearth this stuff, but the state control is still doing its job of keeping people in the dark.
Who pulls the strings of the puppets?
Another creepy thing about this G8/G20 shift is that the next G8 summit will go on in Huntsville, Ontario, Canada in June of 2010, and the G20 summit (hosted by South Korean President Myung-bak Lee) will go on SIMULTANEOUSLY.
For "world governing bodies" that already lack transparency, accountability and public awareness, doubling up the summits is just going to make those problems worse. They seem to be layering their big strategic meetings so that the process is even more opaque and removed from view. I'm sure this is purposeful...and very Plutonic. Merging the activities of bodies of power, consolidating the power and remaining murky about the decisions made behind closed doors, outside public awareness.
Using this same strategy, the United Nations General Assembly is going on at the same time as the G20 Summit in Pittsburgh.
Again, layering of events, crowding the media and allowing much less public attention for each individual event.
It's an absolute mockery of what government is supposed to be. Government is supposed to work for the people, not the other way around. Government is supposed to act on the will of the people, in the best interests of all citizens. The will of the people doesn't enter into the equation here. The majority of people have no idea what these governments are up to. How can we when it's all done behind fences and armed riot police?
