Wikileaks revealed US espionage of Indigenous Peoples in 2011

Wikileaks exposed US espionage of Indigenous Peoples

In the Censored News pick for the Best of the Best in 2011, Wikileaks claims first prize. Wikileaks exposed the US corporate schemes, espionage, promotion of mining and efforts globally to halt passage of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
Wikileaks revealed extensive espionage of Indigenous Peoples, including the Mapuche and Mohawks, and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez and Bolivian President Evo Morales, who ushered in a new Indigenous global rights campaign.
The release of the US diplomatic cables of the US State Department confirmed that the US feared the power of Indigenous Peoples, specifically their claims to their traditional territories, a right stated in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. Further, the Declaration states the right of free, prior and informed consent before development proceeds and protects intellectual and cultural property rights.
Here's the top six ways that the United States and Canada, as revealed by Wikileaks, worked against the rights of Indigenous Peoples, by engaging in espionage and the promotion of mining, while violating Indigenous autonomy, self determination and dignity.
1. The United States worked behind the scenes to fight the adoption of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. In Ecuador, the US established a program to dissuade Ecuador from supporting the Declaration. In Iceland, the US Embassy said Iceland's support was an "impediment" to US/Iceland relations at the UN. In Canada, the US said the US and Canada agreed the Declaration was headed for a "train wreck."
2. The United States targeted and tracked Indigenous Peoples, community activists and leaders, especially in Chile, Peru and Ecuador. A cable reveals the US Embassy in Lima, Peru, identified Indigenous activists and tracked the involvement of Bolivian President Evo Morales, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, Bolivia Ambassador Pablo Solon, prominent Mapuche and Quechua activists and community leaders. President Chavez and President Morales were consistently watched, and their actions analyzed. Indigenous activists opposing the dirty Tar Sands were spied on, and other Indigenous activists in Vancouver, prior to the Olympics.
3. The United States was part of a coalition to promote mining and fight against Indigenous activists in Peru. A core group of diplomats from U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, Switzerland and South Africa formed an alliance with mining companies to promote and protect mining interests globally. In other illegal corporate profiteering, Peru’s government secretly admitted that 70-90 percent of its mahogany exports were illegally felled, according to a US embassy cable revealed by Wikileaks. Lowe's and Home Depot sell the lumber.
4. Canada spied on Mohawks using illegal wiretaps. Before Wikileaks hit the headlines, it exposed in 2010 that Canada used unauthorized wiretaps on Mohawks.
Wikileaks: "During the preliminary inquiry to Shawn Brant's trial, it came out that the Ontario Provincial Police, headed by Commissioner Julian Fantino, had been using wiretaps on more than a dozen different Mohawks without a judge's authorization, an action almost unheard of recent history in Canada."
4. The United States and Canada tracked Mohawks. In one of the largest collections of cables released so far that targeted Native people and named names, the US Embassies in Montreal and Toronto detailed Mohawk activities at the border and in their communities.
5. The arrogant and insulting tone of the US Embassies and disrespect for Indigenous leaders is pervasive in US diplomatic cables. The US Embassy in Guatemala stated that President of Guatemala, Álvaro Colom, called Rigoberta Menchu a "fabrication" of an anthropologist and made other accusations. Menchu responded on a local radio station that Colom was a "liar."
6. The collection of DNA and other data, makes it clear that US Ambassadors are spies abroad. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton states that the Intelligence Community relies on biographical information from US diplomats. In cables to Africa and Paraguay, Clinton asked US Embassy personnel to collect address books, e-mail passwords, fingerprints, iris scans and DNA.
“The intelligence community relies on State reporting officers for much of the biographical information collected worldwide," Clinton said in a cable on April 16, 2009. Clinton said the biographical data should be sent to the INR (Bureau of Intelligence and Research) for dissemination to the Intelligence Community.
 Meanwhile, the US was part of a five country team that supported mining as Indigenous Peoples were dying to protect their homeland.
The arrogance of the US and its cheerleading for corporate copper mining in Peru is obvious in two cables just released from Wikileaks. The diplomatic cables reveal the US promoting multi-national corporations, while targeting Indigenous activists and their supporters.
The cables reveal that a core group of diplomats formed an alliance with mining companies to promote and protect mining interests globally. The diplomats were from the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, Switzerland and South Africa.

Wikileaks exposed the fact that not only were Indigenous Peoples spied on globally by the US State Department, but those who supported them were also spied on. Actor and activist Danny Glover was the focus of at least five US diplomatic cables.

THE WILD WILD WEST

MNN.  Dec. 29, 2011.  Western society prefers artificial interaction with inanimate objects.   

The globe is the resort of their rulers. We are all supposedly here for their use.  70% of the people in the Western Hemisphere are not needed by their industrial-war machine. 

Central Control activates their resort. They write the scenario, then act it out and force others to act in it. 

It’s all unnatural. Their script is boiling down to killing and having sex with androids and outdrawing everybody in a gun fight. This production is here!   

Animals are kept in cages and zoos. They can be eliminated, like the 65 million buffalo were by Secretary of interior General Sherman after the Civil War.

The rulers believe they control everything through money and technology, which is unravelling. 

The masses are becoming unmanageable.  The rulers need our minerals and resources to make weaponry to kill, maim, threaten and control the masses.  The James Bay Ring of Fire in northern Ontario is being wrecked to dig up diamonds to reinforce tanks and weapons.

The rulers’ weapons are operated by members of the masses. The rulers make their weapons and ammunition. It’s a symbiotic relationship. 

Both aren’t sure where they’re going, like ships with full sail and no rudder.

Some see a growing darkness of extinction. The control center is being hacked into.  The ruling class occupiers will be gone from Great Turtle Island.  The masses need to get their orders.  From who and how?  The masses panic.  They are conditioned to be obedient, instructed and submit to hierarchy.  As they don’t know how to work together, share equally or listen to each other, they try to take each other out.

Batteries turn the power on temporarily.  The greatest fear of secrecy is shining the light on the dark. 

The Indigenous never died out.  We come from the earth and will always be here.  They can’t belong and uncomfortable with real humans.  

The rulers are escaping the environmental devastation they’ve caused here, taking their international travelling road show with them.  The masses want something new to follow. Think matriarchy!

The doors are electrically powered.  The hordes try to follow their rulers, but they’re locked in. The bunkers need oxygen, workers and managers to tell them what to do. 

The masses try to escape, trampling each other. 

The occupation is over. The rulers try to plant computer chips in the masses to keep them here. 

Is history repeating itself, reprogramming their people and killing those they don’t want? 

This abnormal scenario was not meant to go on indefinitely?  !

Einstein said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results”.  Being out of touch with the natural world, they have no answers and make the same mistakes.  The results look fatal.

Food is scarce.  They’re trapped by the dysfunctionalcontrol center.  The masses run crazy.  Their hierarchical masters are gone.   

The rulers’ greatest fear is the masses will find out they are all the same.  The masses are beginning to cast them down from where they came.  Some bosses try to continue the illusion. They need submissive masses, who will do the work, push their wheelchairs and clean their bunkers.

Rulers need a game plan. 

“We shall deceive them into accepting laws that will steal the little freedom they have left”.  

Countries are escaping their clutches, starting with Iceland, then Greece, Spain, Portugal, Ireland, Europe and now the rest of the world.

The rulers and their agents leave behind confused technicians, dazed agents and damaged masses.  The air conditioners are off.  They melt in the heat.  The elite and agents sit in the hovercraft floating above the ground. They shoot at and set fire to the land and then float away.

Yogi Berra said, “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future”. 

We’re burning tobacco and singing: Just give me a home where the buffalo roam, where the deer and the antelope play; where seldom is heard a discouraging word, and the skies are not cloudy all day.
