Native Rights Emergency in Canada right now-Part 2 U.S. Solidarity Actions

I just received this message from my friend Harrison-

“Red Power United members in Canada are requesting that our American members and our alliances with UUWS, UNA and AIM in the U.S. please show your solidarity and concern for the fight we are facing here in Canada as the Harper Government is trying to extinguish rights and break our Nations ..

This web site http://www.embassypages.com/canada is a listing of links for Canadian embassies and consulates worldwide-so if you want to organize a solidarity action in Europe, Asia, Australia etc you should be able to find your closest location using that page.
Don’t worry if you are not a member of any of the groups mentioned-Solidarity actions can be organized by ANYONE who CARES.

Please share this widely if you believe in human rights, freedom and sovereignty. Even if you are not indigenous these actions taken to solidify and cement the absolute power of the corrupt to control the Earth and all her peoples are detrimental to everyone.

This current crisis is caused by the refusal of Native Nations to join with the corrupt in a free-for-all orgy of Earth destruction with the Tar Sands and Keystone XL pipeline among other filthy projects.

Just as the US invaded Afghanistan when the Taliban refused to allow the oil pipeline to reach the ocean,(Oh you thought that was about 911? NOPE) when Big Oil can’t railroad over First Nations in Canada suddenly Canada decides to legally evaporate First Nations.

The indigenous in Afghanistan have not exactly kowtowed to their plans, even after a decade of war the colonizer lacks basic control there;despite the death and dismemberment of so many Americans and other soldiers who believe they are fighting for Freedom for PEOPLE not for Big Oil, and endless innocent civilians.;-( I doubt Turtle Island is going to follow any more easily.

Let’s use the power of the People worldwide to show them they can’t get away with this-BEFORE it ends up being as bloody in Canada as it has been in Afghanistan.

Peaceful pressure WORKS and it saves lives-all we have to do is work together and keep this issue in the news. We can’t let our brothers and sisters in Canada fight the Cabal/Illuminati/Big Oil by themselves, this fight belongs to us ALL.

Peace is Possible in Our Everyday Lives

It seems illogical that our individual thoughts and daily actions could mirror or affect the larger world but it seems to have an effect proportionate to the amount of people-as in after a certain minimum number of people achieve peace at a personal level it will spread over larger and larger areas. Thank you for this!

It is difficult to think about ending the strife and war in the entire world. But it is possible for each of us to live in the present moment every day.  There are countries building up munitions and creating super weapons. It is difficult to handle all of this and believe in the goodness and love of people.

What we can’t do is to live in the past, no matter what happened then, nothing can make it better. The events of the past must remain there or you will be living in the hurt and pain and perhaps even looking for revenge. We must let go. We must walk away from the past and then it looses its power over us. Then we can make our lives be what we wish them to be. The future is a siren who calls us, but it never arrives. Its song is enticing…

Secret graveyards found in the black section of closed Florida boys reform school

This was in my hometown newspaper today, they have had an ongoing investigative series on the Dozier school and the lawsuit from the survivors of it. I am glad to see so much truth being uncovered these days, but it is painful to look at. I hope the truth and reconciliation process can soon begin in earnest for the US as it did for South Africa.

FPL brings pipeline wars to Florida’s Everglades

I can’t believe they want to frack in Florida! The Floridan aquifer has enough trouble with overpumping and rising sea level(saltwater intrusion is increased by both). Fracking in karst is possibly the only thing I can think of that is dumber than drilling a couple miles under the ocean;-/ We’ve got to get this nutjob out of our governor’s office asap!

Earth First! Newswire

FPL pipeline_mapDespite growing resistance against oil and gas pipelines across North America, energy companies continue to push their plans for expansion.

Perhaps you’ve heard of the Spectra, Constitution and Millennium pipelines in New York; the PTP and Enbridge pipelines across Canada; and, of course, the Keystone XL under construction in East Texas…  These pipelines are all specifically aimed at accommodating the extreme extraction practices of shale fracking and tar sands.

Now you can add FPL’s proposed pipeline to the list. Though the plan was already rejected once by Florida’s Public Service Commission, its back again. According to the Palm Beach Post:

Florida Power & Light (FPL) has proposed a multibillion-dollar gas pipeline that would run from Alabama to Martin County, and is seeking bids from companies interested in building what would become the state’s third major pipeline.

Juno Beach-based FPL, which continues to invest billions in power plants that…
