This dam has to be stopped. It is simply wrong that corporations and governments can murder every indigenous person on Earth in pursuit of profit and cheap energy. We lived without electricity for 2 million years of human history, we lived without oil for 2 million years-is it really worth MURDERING people, causing whole species to go extinct for CONVENIENCE?

Urge President Dilma to find a peaceful solution to the Belo Monte conflict and respect indigenous rights!
Only two days after the reoccupation of the Belo Monte Dam began, the fate of 170 indigenous people is at stake. Yesterday, the Federal Court in Altamira ordered them to leave by 4 pm today or they would be removed by Federal Police. They responded by tearing up the order and refused to leave by the deadline. Instead, they are standing strong and are demanding that President Dilmas Chief of Staff, Gilberto Carvalho, come meet with them. Their letter to the Brazilian government is below. Read, share and take urgent action right now!
You can also show your support by donating to the indigenous occupation on CAUSES.
Letter No. 8:
The massacre has been announced and only the government can avoid this fate
(Original version in Portuguese here)
We have occupied the construction site of the Belo Monte Dam. We are defending our lands. These ancient lands have always been ours and you have already taken a part of them. And now you are trying to take more. We will not leave.
You will come to kill us and we will die. We will not leave without being heard.
The federal government announced a massacre of indigenous peoples, the 170 warriors, women, children, leaders and shamans who are here. This massacre is going to happen at the hands of police, Funai, and the judicial system.
You have killed at Teles Pires and will kill again when you need to. You killed us because we are against the dams. We know what you are capable of doing.
This time the government and corporations have asked Norte Energia to kill us. Norte Energia pled their case to a federal judge, who subsequently authorized the police to beat and kill us if needed. Government of Brazil and corporations building Belo Monte, it will be your fault if any of us die.
Enough with the violence! Stop threatening us! We want our peace and you want your war. Stop lying to the press that we are kidnapping workers and buses and causing an inconvenience. The occupation is quiet The unrest is caused by the police sent by the judge, Norte Energia, and the government. You are the ones who are humiliating us, threating us, intimidating us, and assassinating us when you dont know what else to do.
We demand the suspension of the order to repossess the construction site, until Thursday morning, May 30th, 2013. The government needs to come here and hear us. You already know our agenda. We demand the suspension of all works and studies of dams on our lands. We demand the removal of the National Force from our lands. The lands are ours. You have wasted enough of our lands.
You want us to be tame and quiet, obeying your civilization without question. But in this case, we know you would rather see us dead because we are making noise.
Belo Monte construction sites, Vitória do Xingu, Pará, May 29th, 2013
The time has come to take a good look at yourselves, dear ones. Do not be shy, and take into account all that you see. Who are you really? And how have you evolved over these last few months, if not weeks? Do you still feel the same, or do you feel as if everything has been turned upside down? Is the image clear, or is it still somewhat blurred? We see you very clearly dear ones, and we see the splendor of who you truly are, but we also see a lot of unchartered possibilities still lying dormant.
Do not take this as a form of chastisement, just as a reminder that there are still pockets of inaccessible energy within you all, and those pockets are more than ready to burst open at any moment now, and give you that added strength you may feel sorely lacking in your lives at the moment
Let us also remind you of your reason for being here in the first place. Originally, mankind was put onto Earth to help the whole of Creation learn a lesson that could not be given under equal circumstances anywhere else. For you have been put into a physical form with many limitations, and you have been cut off from your own inherent greatness in a way that would force you to evolve by your own provess alone. And that was an interesting experience for us all. Not just for all those lucky enough to partake directly by being allowed aboard a human vessel and get to live it all by virtue of being a human amongst other humans on this little planet. But the lessons you have learned, have been for us all, and that has been the intention all along. But, as you know, some other beings intervened, and changed the rules in the classroom so drastically, you were forced to live under a regime that actually hampered your education instead of encouarging it. As you know, these false rules have now been set aside, and you have once again been allowed the freedom to start to blossom freely, like you were meant to from the very beginning. And many of you have taken upon you the role of being the forerunners in this. For not only have you started to throw off these old shackles of fear and started to grow into the real you, but you have also started to open your heart to the fact that you are an integrated part of the divine cosmos. You are not merely a human being, you are also a spirit that is connected to All there is, and so, you are so much more than what you see when you look at yourself in the mirror. That is a fact, and we know you have started to realize it, but it is mayhaps not a fact you have truly taken to heart yet.
As we told you in an earlier missive, there are still some blockages stopping the flow of information in the form of light into your heart, and those are the blockages that you have been told to look into now. For they must go, otherwise you will not be able to do what you came here to do. For you came here to bring heaven to Earth in the form of channeling in the divine light that will bring with it the knowledge that has been hidden from mankind for eons. But unless you remove those blockages you still carry within, that light cannot access your channel fully. And so they must go. But what are those blockages, dear ones? Well, to put it to you in the best way we can, we want you to see that they are nothing more than battle scars, remnants from all of the human dramas you have been partaking in while you attended the school of fear. These scars can be few, they can be many, they can be slight, or they can run very, very deep. But they are all nothing more than scar tissue, they are actually dead and devoid of any importance at this stage, but as in your phsyical body, this dead tissue is standing in the way for new growth. And so that is why we have told you to let the light come in, for the light will effectively remove these scars, and it will do so painlessly.
But for many, the biggest problem is that they fear these scars, they fear the painful memories and the emotions that made them originally, and so they lose their courage and just pretend that these scars are not even there, or they use all of their energy trying to gather the courage to crack them open. But as we told you earlier, the actual removal of this scar tissue is so much easier than the accruing of them, and infinitely more painless than what many of you think. For you still fall back into human drama when you look at those scars. For the scars in themselves can trigger so much more drama, and so, it turns into a never ending cycle of drama and more drama, all of which is compeletely unnecessary.
Remember we told you earlier to not just leave the stage, but the whole theater of human drama altogether? Well, never have those words been more important. For if you continue to fuel these old scars with new drama, you will only block the light from your channel more and more, and soon, even the strongest of light will have a hard time penetrating it at all. So step away from it all, and look upon it for what it truly is, just old remnants of old drama, wounds from the old school of fear that are ready to be healed and removed in one go. That is, if you allow them to be. But if you insist on scraping into them, either by forcing yourself to look away from them, or by continuing to remember the reason for their existence, you will make this whole opening up of your own divine channel nearly impossible. So again we say, only by stepping away from the drama, and by letting the light come in, will these old wounds disappear, and the blockages they make will also come undone, and the light will flow fully into the very core of your being. And from there, it will be allowed to flow out into your world, and then, miracles will start to happen.
And when we talk of the light, we talk of the divine light coming in from heavens above. You are all connected to this light, but as yet, the force of it has not been set to full, and it cannot be that either, not before we are well and truly sure that your channel is clear and ready to take it in. And so this is what we want you do to. You must allow yourself to truly receive what is being given from above. And so, this upcoming Sunday, during the next Gathering, we will help you all we can to attain that full opening. For then, you will be asked to surrender yourself to receiving this healing light that comes from above. You have all been hooked up to the divine golden grid already, and now, the time has come to start to open up for the full potential it carries. But remember, in order to achieve just that, you must also allow yourself to let go of the human drama that helps to lock you in in so many ways. For then, and only then, will you become that open channel for divine light that will change not only you, but your whole world. Forever.
As promised in the previous Newsletter, here is the first video on a new series with the intent to bridge spiritual exercises, and practices to raise our vibration, to raising the vibration of our daily tasks by becoming conscious, aware and empowered while we carry them out.
There are so many areas of our lives that we don’t normally think of as being relevant to our spiritual awareness, growth, or even relevant to raising the overall vibration of our existence, that sometimes we simply need a quick reminder that daily life and working on empowering ourselves are not separate from each other.
I hope you enjoy this new series!
What a happy message! I love this one! Especially since, I am guessing I am not the only one whose wishes include things like the return of the world’s forests, healing of the oceans, everyone having enough to eat (everything they need)and no oppression, clean air, water, land and food and that wonderful Keshe type transport so we can all physically visit all the amazing people we have met all over the world thru the internet;-)
As you have mayhaps noticed, the inner voices can be more than a little insistent at times now, and what they demand of you, can be more than a little daunting to handle. You have set yourselves free in so many ways, but these small hindrances still standing in your way will start to make a lot of noise. And they will do so for a very good reason, as it is indeed imperative that you all clear your channel as it were in order to make yourselves fully able to access the information you so dearly seek. In other words, nothing is allowed to stand between you and Source, and now, the only things doing so are those innermost kept secrets that only serve to fog your vision from clearing up completely. For many, it will be something extremely painful, for these are the things you have kept hidden away in the deepest and darkest recesses of your cupboards. They might be remnants of this life or earlier lives, things you may not even have a clear memory of, but lies there as a festering sore that needs to be cleaned once and for all.
The good news is that these wounds themselves need nothing more than to be exposed to the light in order to heal, so the process in itself is a much more simple one than you perhaps fear. For the fear of the wound is much more painful than the actual healing of it, and so we do advice you all to find a way to let these things surface. It may not come about by itself, and so, asking for assistance from your peers, or from others that can be of help is essential. Remember, you do not stand alone this, you are surrounded by love on all sides, but unless you let that love penetrate you to the very depth of your being, it cannot help you shine as strong as you need.
So let the light in all the way, and please seek help to do so. For you are so good at shying away from what has caused you pain earlier, but now, the only way to get through it is to face it head on. And remember, it will release at the very first sight of the light, and it will bring you tremendous release in every way you can think of. But it does not happen all by itself, for you have to make a conscious decision to let it go. So again we urge you to dare to open that final door, and reach out and hold someones hand if you need help to be better able to face this. For you do not need to go there alone, that is not required of any of you. But what is required, is that you do go there and bring the light with you, and that very action will make every last drop of inflammation drain away immediately. It will be a full and complete healing of all that has been festering away, but it will only happen if you allow yourself to let it happen. You are the bravest of the brave dear ones, but you do not have to take everything on single handedly, and certainly not this. For you do not have to prove yourselves to anyone, and the sooner you let yourself acknowledge this, the better. You are strong, but you are far far stronger if you let yourselves be held by others. So let them assist you on this, your last and final step into greatness.
Disseminating Moon Phase – Moon in Capricorn/Aquarius
Ruling Mahavidya – Tara
New responses to life are coming from deep inside us. Expanded levels of awareness are part of the natural shift/changes that are taking place. Look for the addition of new elements into situations, elements that will shift our perspective.
Disseminating phase is the time of the lunar cycle when we get feedback/messages through others, so pay attention to what others are saying and watch for synchronicities.
I can’t watch the video so usually prefer the text, but everyone has been saying such good things about this one, I thought I should share it for those who CAN see them;-) With Thanks to Jean!
This is the most heartening post about a President, or Presidential speech I have seen since Jimmy Carter was in office! With much thanks to Jean for finding and posting this. To everyone who like me had great faith in Obama and not too long ago started to feel very confused and unsure, this is a real shot of Hope that the Change we worked so hard to bring about by electing and re-electing this President is still Possible and maybe even currently in process behind the scenes. That he could even SAY the things Duff discusses here is a very strong sign that the people who assassinated a President a generation ago to gain incredible power over our country have lost at least some of that blood bought control. I want to add also much thanks to Creator for hearing our prayers and answering even if the process is slower and more confusing than we might have wished for-it does appear to BE a process, not a static state of fascism any more. When the Supreme Court made a bloodless coup of my government by appointing a President who had not won the election, even this slow process of change did not seem probable to me, so this is a great blessing for which I am very grateful.
I can’t believe it has been 4 years already! Please share this widely. The more people show up to support the Wet’suwe’ten First Nation the better it will be for everyone the full length of the proposed pipeline, and the safer the elders, children and everyone who lives there will be as well! There are new, better, cleaner and much cheaper forms of energy currently in development so the longer we can delay and the more expensive we can make this damn pipeline, the more likely it is to simply become “economically unfeasible” at some point in the next few years. The Tar sands already cost more in energy to get than they produce-the more it costs to get them to the refineries the easier it will be to make the whole thing shut down for good.
The date for the Action Camp is set!!! Get a pen and paper (or smart phone) JULY 10, 2013 until JULY 14th, 2013. You will not want to miss out on this year’s camp as we are expecting much much much more people than ever!!! Please go to the Victoria Forest Action Network site
to register to attend this year’s camp. We are working on getting all of the most amazing people here this year and are already developing more progressive workshops that will make you want to do everything we are doing to create a just world that our children will be proud of.
Members of the Wet’suwe’ten First Nation are turning away pipeline workers and surveyors trying to start work on the pipelines. The intruders have been warned about trespassing on unceded land. The Unis’tot’en people are supported by their neighbours in the Likhts’amisyu Clan, the Gidem’ten…
