Mohawk Nation News: Youth Riots: Ravenous Hunger for Freedom
By Mohawk Nation News
Indigenous could not be enslaved. A man whose mind is free cannot be controlled. The most that can be done is to kill them. There is a hunger for freedom. Those aware are angry. Hunger is becoming more intense. Alarms are ringing. They are looking for sustenance.

Arizona Daily Sun’s pitiful explanation of censorship of Protect the Peaks
The pathetic note, in a series of notes, in today's Arizona Daily Sun can be translated this way: "We aren't going to cover this breaking news, and 19 arrests by sending out a reporter and photographer, because we are a white elitist newspaper and focus on white people and money-making profiteers. We can always come up with an excuse to censor, and cover our backs, because we are the ones publishing this newspaper and no one can force us to abide by the ethics of journalism. We don't really care what local Native Americans have to say because we give priority to white people, and people who are exploiting the natural resources, profiteering from other peoples misery and profiteering from the desecration of their sacred places."
