Mohawk Nation News 'Dog Eat Dog'


By Mohawk Nation News

MNN.  30 Nov. 2011.  European rulers train their people to be obedient, and can order them to attack or pull back. They need an enemy or they will attack each other. 

Laws keep them in line so they don’t brutalize one another unless told to do so.  Their leashes were lengthened for WWI and WWII. 

European rulers think they are entitled to control the world.  They set up a psychopathic hierarchical system enforced by the military to do this. 

Europe has long been a dead land with no resources.  Manufacturing and labor are sourced out.  Their money has no backing.

Europeans feed off of other peoples’ labor and resources to exist.   

The rulers create banking systems and money out of thin air to pay for this.

The European monster with its once long tentacles can’t grab or control anything.  Resources are moving “further” out of their grasp.  A new way to rip us Indigenous off is being developed.

Capitalism is a captive-b…

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Tohono O'odham Veteran David Ortega remained hospitalized Wednesday night after being pepper sprayed at the protest of the American Legislative Exchange Council, ALEC. Doctors are undertaking tests to see if Ortega had a heart attack or stroke after police repeatedly fired pepper spray on the peaceful protesters.

"It was like a cloud of pepper spray," Ortega said Wednesday night recovering in a Scottsdale hospital. "I was carrying the Veterans for Peace flag when another person was hit directly in the face with pepper spray. I rushed to the front to help him, like I always do as a Peacemaker."

Ortega said the pepper spray was fired at them several times. Ortega began experiencing shortness of breath and chest pains and was hospitalized. Ortega has been serving as a Peacemaker at Occupy Tu…

O'odham Pepper Sprayed in Phoenix ALEC Protest

O'odham Pepper Sprayed at ALEC Protest! By Brenda Norrell Censored News
David Ortega, Tohono O'odham, was hospitalized after being pepper sprayed by police on Wednesday.

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Tohono O'odham David Ortega, veteran and elder, suffered a stroke today after being pepper sprayed by police at the ALEC protest.
Ortega was peacefully protesting when police pepper sprayed a delegation of O'odham. He was taken to a nearby hospital.
Alex Soto, O'odham youth, was also pepper sprayed in the face.
Tohono O'odham protesters at the ALEC protest in Scottsdale, Ariz., in the Phoenix Valley, were peaceful and apparently singled out because police viewed them as key to the protest.
Ofelia Rivas, Tohono O'odham and founder of O'odham VOICE against the Wall, said, "There is a lot of unnecessary police brutality."

By Indigenous Environmental Network
Posted at Censored News

DURBAN, South Africa -- In Durban, Canada and the United Kingdom, Indigenous activists and their supporters targeted Shell today for violating agreements made with Indigenous communities in Canada. In Durban, site of the ongoing UN climate talks, activists from Canada joined activists from Africa to denounce Shell and their repeated violations of human rights and environmental regulations. Appearing outside a Shell refinery, a number of Indigenous activists joined with youth from Canada and Africa to support the community of Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN), who recently announced their lawsuit against Shell.

"Shell has left a trail of broken promises and ravaged eco-systems.  They have been pushing their dirty fossil fuels plans on every country they can bully. It's time to stand up and say get the Shell out of there, we don't want your broken promises anymore," declared Eriel Deranger, a community …

Twitter champion for human rights

By Brenda Norrell
Censored News

Twitter has become a champion for human rights, with its real time alerts on abuses around the world and exposures of censored news articles. This is where Twitter excels, making Facebook now seem archaic, like an ancestor's chest of old clothes.

Facebook's random freezing of accounts and deletion of data is increasing. Facebook also supplies law enforcement with tracking data, since IP addresses are saved every time a user logs in. In fact, Facebook saves everything, even what you have deleted. Further, Facebook increasingly has trolls who want to persuade, disrupt and confuse.

Twitter, however, has become the medium for a global audience who doesn't want to read too much. Internet readers these days want a few sentences and photos. They want it quickly and clearly. Most of all, they want it now.

When Egypt opened fire on protesters with real bullets, those chilling words came across on Twitter. When Berkel…

Occupy Tucson: Occupiers climb trees, avoid arrests

By Alex Maldonado
Censored News

TUCSON -- In a rare direct action/resistance by Occupy Tucson, not seen across the nation thus far, occupiers climbed the trees of Veinte de Agosto Park before the 10:30pm citation time.
At approximately 11pm, the Tucson Police Department notified Occupy Tucson stating that there would be no enforcement, nor citations for staying in the park after hours for the night.
Several writers and two local television news stations were present to document the action, and reaction of TPD.
Could this be the move that could bring both the City of Tucson and Occupy Tucson to the negotiating table or is this a sign of a possible moratorium on citations?

Anonymous: OpOhHai targets firms going after Wikileaks and Occupy Wall Street

Statement online
On several occassions, the wide-ranging constituency of activists that comprise Anonymous, Wikileaks, Occupy Wall Street, and other efforts have come under dishonest and well-financed attacks by lobbying syndicates, law firms, intelligence contractors, and other entities. Often, such groups have numerous ties to branches of the U.S. government; in the case of the Team Themis conspiracy, it was actually the Justice Department itself that recommended Bank of America go to the powerful Hunton & Williams firm in order to go after Wikileaks using clandestine and amoral methedology. Although several of these efforts have been exposed and prevented, none have resulted in any significant consequences for anyone involved in the wrongdoing concerned.
That being the case, these parties have had little reason to refrain from pursuing the growing market for information-based sabotage against civic and activist groups. Meanwhile, the effective…

Bookshelf: A California Chumash Woman

By Brenda Norrell
 Censored News

The ways of living life in balance with the earth, along with the 1978 occupation of Point Conception in California and a chapter on Nuclear Energy in Native America, are shared in a new book, Earth Wisdom, A California Chumash Woman, by Yolanda Broyles-Gonzalez and Pilulaw Khus.

Now, as Indigenous Peoples around the world gather in Durban, South Africa, at the UN climate summit COP 17, the book offers insights into the struggles of the Chumash occupations, while sharing the guiding wisdom which is at the foundation of the global movement to protect Mother Earth and live lives in harmony with the earth.

"We are all spirit beings masquerading as physical beings right now," says Khus, Chumash activist, in the chapter on Chumash Resurgence, which documents the struggles in the 1970s to save sacred lands and burial places.

Located north of Santa Barbara, Chumash call Point Conception, "The Western Gate." I…

listening sessions at the White House. Obama
will make "remarks" on Friday at the Interior
Building,  the White House said.
See update at Censored News;

The White House Tribal Nations Conference is on Friday, Dec. 2, at the Interior building. The big question is why the secrecy about which Native American leaders will be attending the regional meetings, actually held at the White House, and who those leaders will be meeting with, on Wednesday and Thursday.

Those regional Native American leaders will meet at the White House prior to the meeting over at the Interior building on Friday, Dec. 2. Native American leaders from all 565 federally-recognized Indian Nations have been invited to attend the Friday session.

The White House announced those invita…
