Every radical should probably read this
It would be a step in the right direction if everyone interested in radical politics were to read the essay "I Am Indigenist" by Ward Churchill. At this time the vast majority of non-indigenous activists, social critics, and revolutionary organizations (with a few notable exceptions) still act with little regard to the worlds indigenous populations. This situation MUST change if we hope to build true and lasting justice, anywhere. Even if you are unable to attend an upcoming study group discussion on this important essay, we urge you to find the time to read and consider it.

Coal: Atrocities From Appalachia To Black Mesa
The opposition to coal must be inclusive to the struggle of the Dine and Hopi resisting Peabody over 40 years as well as Mountain Top Removal. Too often the resource extraction resistance movement of privilege excludes the long fight of Indigenous peoples in the US. Silencing does not build unity.

Coal: Atrocities From Appalachia to Black Mesa
It is critical to unite struggles effectively around coal mining. Indigenous people have been resisting Peabody Coal for over 40 years and the issue is under reported, even by enviros. Globally Indigenous struggle is the most silenced. We must not fail to integrate these vital stands for a livable future.

Migration not infrequently gets a bad press. Negative stereotypes portraying migrants as "stealing our jobs" or "scrounging off the tax payer" abound in all sections of the media and public opinion. For others, the word "migrant" may evoke images of people at their most vulnerable.

a visionary's report: practicing our bests while we still can!
ghosty great spirit touches the dying of same old again Biked about 70 miles round trip--especially thru one larger community of fellow human beings-- with the intention to send the best of what i am currently manifesting and channelling (not to mention long immersed in exploring) into the heavily colonial-bombarded fellow human beings called indigenous folks (the actual nation kept confidential for privacy purposes). Wore some spontaneous (and not so spontaneous) regali-uh and the seeming fruition of a vision regarding what might be "the best" way to especially art my intent: a neon-red question-mark on my face! Experiences included very untypical natural and critter behavior all the way to exhilerating joy shared with a few key persons --outside of the usual matrixes of imposed reality.

Sacred, Indigenous Site Made Into Fill-Dirt for New Sam's Club, Revolution Needed
In Oxford, Alabama something awful is happening. A hill, on top of which lies a Native American rock mound, is being destroyed in order to procure fill-dirt for a new Sam's Club a few miles away. Oxford mayor calls the hill, 'the ugliest old hill in the world." Something more than just simple cultural insensitivity is behind the destruction of the sacred site, and a revolution is needed to stop it.

Don't drink the uranium
Havasu Falls, Grand Canyon On July 21, 2009, Obama Interior Secretary Ken Salazar announced a two year "time out" on new uranium mining claims on federal land near the Grand Canyon, in response, it seemed, to the protest of environmentalists, and, Native Americans, who still suffer cancers and other illnesses at rates many times higher than the general population, consequent to uranium mining on or near tribal lands. But the "time out" is straight out of Orwell's 1984, because new claims are not the issue. Over 10,000 claims have been staked on the edge of the Grand Canyon since 2006, and if 1% of them became mines, thirty million people's water supply would be endangered.

Women shouldn't step down from their power: Audio interview w Russell Means on Matriarchy
Women lured into stepping down from being who they truly are in order to be "accepted" have to become like men have been trained in order to be given alleged "equality", said a leading Lakota wisdom keeper (and much attacked), Russell Means, in a recent interview with two ladies running "The Tazz and Paul Show". Lots of deeply interesting insights here for women (and men) who want serious liberatory ideas to think through! (And for those who try to label Russ a "conservative", maybe it's time you looked beyond the systematic attempts to character assasinate this patriot of human beings!

Akwesasne Resistance to more forceful attempts to divide their nation
I can guarantee the U.S. and Canadian armed standoff has not and will not be reported in the mainstream press, as all significant issues involving indigenous people is deliberately censored in the western press. More disturbing, those press ambitious enough to try and report this story, as well as international observers, have been denied access to the area by the U.S. and Canadian governments...In a way, we, all of us on Turtle Island, are all Akwesasne, held hostage by criminal and illegitimate governments serving the greed of the few. The community of Akwesasne needs your support. If you are in the area, and can go there, please do. Bear witness if nothing else. If you can, bring in supplies, by boat at night, and break the blockage.
