Mohawk Nation News: 'Hungry for Power'

HUNGRY FOR POWER

By Mohawk Nation News

MNN.  Feb. 13, 2012.  Whites are hardwired for insane power. 

We learn about these crazy people by watching television, movies, playing video games and walking around the mall.  Visual depictions of bombings, murders, rapes, perversions, child abuse and other violence comes from their minds.     

As they become the minority, they still think Indigenous and other people of color should sit at the back of the bus, so to speak.  

We’vebeen killed and oppressed by them to steal our land and resources to finance their economy and debt.  They got mad over not being able to domesticate us.  We just wouldn’t suck up to them.  They found no reason to not murder us.

New genocidal laws [Arizona] forbid learning true Indian history and the memories of who we are. 

They’ve shown no guilt over these killings. They think they’re not sick because they said they’re sorry. 

Their depression is due to their detachment from nature.  They’re missing melanin, a genetic factor in people of color, plants, animals and the earth. They can’t empathize.  White farmers are the closest but they don’t get it. 

These whites want to belong.  Some have come among us and wild animals to imitate our connection with the natural world.  They tame or kill.  Predators trying to tame predators! 

Animals in their natural state teach us about life.  Wolves are cunning. They teach us to stick together to take care of our families and the power of one mind even when miles apart. The bear shows us how to develop our strength through the foods we eat.  The turtle shows us how to deliberate wisely and carefully.    

Animals want to live in the wild.  They watch,wait and attack when agitated or to defend themselves, their territory, their young and their food source.  

There are two recent separate cases of whites living among wild animals, treating them like tabby cats.  They started to pull rank on them.  One held back on the food for the bears.  The other tried to discipline the wolf, who practically lived in her house.  

Money means nothing to animals and hierarchy is not a natural state.  These two women were no longer their servants.  Both animals did what comes naturally.  The women got ate.  The chubby traditionally attired non-native medicine man couldn’t understand why the wolf would eat such a nice old lady.

The invaders tried to make us and the animals depend on them, make us all into something we’re not.  They murdered over 100 million of us and 60 million buffalo.   

Can’tthese ignoramuses see the harm they’ve done to the environment, plants, animals and people?  A carbon tax can’t fix it! 

No one is speaking for the animals, who need to be heard.  That’s what they told us.  The whites may expect the animals to thank them if they help them.

Just like Tweety Bird sang when Sylvester the Cat tried to devour him:  “I did.  I did.  I taw aputty tat creeping up on me”.  They’re so conditioned to think they’ll always get saved.

Hacked e-mails reveal Mexico manipulating climate change facts, destroying Indian sacred lands


Huicholes sacred land targeted by First Majestic silver mining
Hacked e-mails reveal Mexico manipulating climate change facts, destroying Indian sacred lands

The hacked e-mails of Mexico’s mining industry of Camimex exposed by Anonymous reveal that the government of Mexico is manipulating climate change facts in order to protect coal mining and other dirty industries from taxation.

The e-mails expose the government of Mexico is engaged in the corporate rape of the environment, with total disregard for the air, water and land of Mexico. The e-mails reveal there is no consideration or protection, by Mexico or mining corporations, for Indigenous sacred lands and ceremonial places.

In the Camimex member e-mails, First Majestic Silver Mining of Canada is exposed in the state of Durango, Mexico. The company is now targeting the sacred lands of the Wixarika, Huicholes, with silver mining. The Wixarika's sacred place is where Wixarika pray for all mankind to keep the world in order and balance.

The hacked e-mails reveal the destruction to lands in Sonora, Mexico.

O’odham, who live on both sides of the Arizona/Mexico border, are fighting Silver Scott Mines, based in South Carolina in the US, which has targeted their ceremonial community of Quitovac, a place of annual pilgrimage, with gold mining. The mining of Quitovac, about 30 miles south of the Arizona/Mexico border in O’odham territory, would destroy the land and poison the water.

Further, the emails reveal that the University of Guanajuato is assisting mining corporations that are now destroying Mexico and Indigenous sacred lands. The university offers courses which promote and secure mining by professor Juan Jose Cervantes Silva. The university's promotion of mining also reveals the role of US universities in the exploitation and destruction of Indigenous lands, since Cervantes was trained at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

The University of Arizona has taken a lead in the militarization of Indigenous border lands, by designing drones and offering courses that target people of color on the border. Further the University of Arizona has taken the lead in the destruction of Native sacred lands in Arizona, including placing telescopes on sacred Mount Graham over the objection of Apaches and other Native Americans. Further the university has engaged in global spying of activists in its global cyber spy program and partnered with both Homeland Security and the US Border Patrol in its programs.

Anonymous hacked Mexico’s mining industry in defense of Indigenous Peoples struggling to protect their sacred lands, and their fellow campesinos who are victims of Mexico’s mining industry. Anonymous sent a clear message to the global mining industry targeting Indigenous Peoples and their lands with abuse, violence and exploitation, that their private communications will no longer be private.

Anonymous hactivists said they were robbing the e-mails because the mining industry is robbing the miners.

“You only took out our minerals, exploiting our miner brothers,” said the statement of Anonymous posted online. So far, 730 MB of e-mail accounts and the data base of Camimex were exposed.

Anonymous said the mining companies in Mexico and the mining syndicates are together “only to steal our minerals.” Anonymous said the value is $200,000,000 and miners are forced to work in extremely dangerous conditions. Anonymous said the leader Napoleon Gomez Urrutia “stole more than 55 million of dollars,” which was for mine security. It resulted in the tragedy of “Pasta de Conchos,” where 65 miners died due to the insufficient security measures, Anonymous said.

Excerpt:

4.- Diputados vigilan Ley de Cambio Climático no afecte crecimiento.

Legisladores federales que representan a Coahuila promoverán modificaciones a la Ley de Cambio Climático que fue aprobada en el Senado y ahora está en análisis en la Cámara de Diputados. La intención es evitar que se impongan cargas fiscales que coloquen en desventaja a sectores productivos como la minería del carbón.

Así lo adelantó el gobernador, Rubén Moreira Valdez, en conferencia de prensa al señalar que la explotación del sólido debe seguirse dando para contar con los empleos que esa actividad genera.

Milenio.

Members monitor Climate Change Act so it does not affect growth.
Federal legislators representing Coahuila promote changes to the Climate Change Act which was passed in the Senate and is now being analyzed in the Chamber of Deputies. The intention is to avoid imposing tax burdens placed at a disadvantage in productive sectors such as coal mining.
It was advanced to the governor, Ruben Moreira Valdez, at a press conference stating that jobs must be protected.

Anonymous Message to Mining Companies in South America

A Message To The Mining and Energy Companies In South America

By Anonymous/Operation Green Rights
Feb 2012

We want to express our condemnation for the Norte Energia‘s project on the Belo Monte’s dam. The Amazonian ecosystem is fundamental for the whole planet and the dam will damage it irreversibly. We also wish to express our condemnation for the damage that your project has wreaked on Kayapo native community.

Citizens of the World:

◦ The dam site is polluting the waters of the Xingu River. This is obviously serious because the Kayapo drink water from the river and also fish there.

◦ The charter of the ‘UN Rights of Indigenous Peoples’ states that the authority of indigenous communities should be consulted on the implementation of any project affecting their territory. The Kayapo have not been consulted by Norte Energia. So the Kayapo people’s rights have been violated. It is a Kayapo’s right to refuse the dam.

◦ Many of the 24,000 people in the area are being forced to evacuate. The construction of the dam will cause the flooding of their homes.

◦ Even the Ixil, in Guatemala are in danger due to the Enel Green Power’s dam project. Hydroaysen is another dam project. No one spoke with Ixil about the dam project either.

◦ Hydroaysen is another dam project in Chile, it will absolutely destroy the ecosystem of Patagonia.

◦In Mexico, First Majestic Silver Corp has obtained license to dig in the sacred area of the Huichol people. The whole area will be disfigured and the natives will be expelled.

All these facts show that the large corporations are carrying out a systematic and destructive work on nature and the South American indigenous communities through ethnic cleansing.

Operation Green Rights and Anonymous DO NOT accept that ancient and peaceful cultures will be sacrificed in the obtuse name of greed.

ENEL, ENDESA, NORTE ENERGIA AND OTHERS. Your hydropower is UNCLEAN. It is contaminated by pain and suffering. It is time to choose, create and find renewable energy sources that have very minimal impact on the environment.

Citizens of the World, the time has come to fight the neo-colonialism of the large mining and energy companies!
