Updated all evening

The Stratfor e-mails, published by Wikileaks, reveal a State Department source telling Stratfor that more than one person leaked files to Wikileaks and this concerned the US government because it would expose "the underbelly of our role."
In other revelations, Stratfor e-mails state that Osama bin Laden's body was flown in a CIA plane to Dover, Delaware. In other breaking news, an FBI source for Stratfor is revealed, who resigns his 25 career after the exposure.
The Stratfor e-mails also reveal a discussion of the hacktivists Anonymous, and Anonymous' announcements in regard to Mexico's cartels.
The Stratfor e-mails further reveal advice to a spy on Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, to take "financial, sexual and psychological" control of sources.

Stratfor spies insult those gathered at the Cochabamba, Bolivia, climate summit, which included Indigenous Peoples from around the world. In the same e-mail Stratfor says in the past way of doing things, a helicopter "accident," would have been planned for Bolivian President Evo Morales and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.
Stratfor also insults black Democrats, makes accusations about Rev. Jesse Jackson and question Clinton dollars and Russians.
Wikileaks and its partners are releasing 5 million e-mails of Stratfor global intelligence.


Stratfor Files: State Dept said more than one person leaked Wikileaks files

U.S. State Department Michael Posillico, Special Agent-In-Charge DS FBI Liaison Program Diplomatic Security Service, tells Fred Burton at Stratfor that more than one person was leaking files to Wikileaks.

Burton: "Did that one enlisted Army dude leak all that stuff?"

Posillico: "No but the G (government) is very concerned particularly on Iraq traffic which will expose the underbelly of our role"

Burton: Subject: WikiLeaks question "Mike: How bad will the next round be? Got any idea? Thx"

Stratfor insults participants at Cochabamba climate summit, including Indigenous Peoples from around the world.
The e-mail also reveals how spies have dealt with leaders with helicopter "accidents," referring to Bolivian President Evo Morales and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez:
Stratfor's Fred Burton:
"in the day, we would have been planning his (and Chavez's)
helicopter "accident." Guess I'm getting old, I think its best to keep
these lads around for comic relief. Evo and Chevez belong in the US
Congress and could probably get elected."

Cochabamba by Ben Powless, Mohawk
In April 2010, a historical moment occurred.  More than 32,000 people, including Indigenous Peoples, social movements, small farmers and some world governmental leaders, converged in Cochabamba, Bolivia for the World People’s Conference on Climate Change and the Rights of Mother Earth.  Two outcomes of this conference were the Cochabamba Peoples Accord and the Universal Declaration on the Rights of Mother Earth. The Accord and Declaration gave voice to peoples of the world experiencing the effects of climate chaos and its many accompanying issues, including  depletion of freshwater and other natural resources and the problems of food security, poverty and environmental crises, along with the financial meltdown within the United States and globally.

During the Cochabamba world conference, President Evo Morales of Bolivia officially proposed that the United Nations adopt a declaration that recognizes that Nature or “Mother Earth” has certain inherent rights that we humans must respect and defend. The adoption by the United Nations and national and local governments of the Universal Declaration of the Rights of Mother Earth would expand the class of holders of legally rights and would initiate a global process of transformation.
Our prophecies and teachings tell us that life on Mother Earth is in danger and is coming to a time of great transformation. As Indigenous Peoples, we are accepting the responsibility designated by our prophecies to tell the world that we must live in peace with each other and the Earth to ensure harmony within Creation.

Our Indigenous lifeways are the original “green economies.”  This is more than an abstract philosophy. Our Mother Earth is the source of life.  Water is her lifeblood.   The well-being of the natural environment predicts the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual longevity of our Peoples.   Mother Earth’s health and that of our Indigenous Peoples are intrinsically intertwined.  When our homelands are in a state of good health our Peoples are truly healthy.  This inseparable relationship must be respected for the sake of our future generations and for the well-being of the Earth herself.

Alliances are being formed, globally of Indigenous and non-indigenous groups and individuals committed to creating a system of jurisprudence that sees and treats nature and Mother Earth as a fundamental, rights bearing entity. A paradigm, that is based on Indigenous thought and philosophy needs to be forwarded which grants equal rights to nature and which honors the interrelation in all life.

This is the greatest challenge facing humanity in the 21st Century. How do we re-orientate the dominant industrialized societies so that they pursue human well-being in a manner that contributes to the health of our Mother Earth instead of undermining it? In other words – how do we live in harmony with Nature?
A 3 day conference has been scheduled at Haskell Indian Nations University, in Lawrence, Kansas, April 4-6, 2012 with Indigenous Peoples together from the North and Global South to learn more and to have a discourse about this Rights of Mother Earth, Rights of Nature movement.

We invite humanity to come together to improve our collective human behavior so that we may develop a more sustainable world.  We can preserve, protect, and fulfill our sacred duties to live with respect in this wonderful Creation.  We have the power and responsibility for change.

Planning World Conference on Indigenous Peoples 2014

Owe Aku International Justice Project: Planning and Strategy for World Conference on Indigenous Peoples 2014


March 1, 2012

Brothers and Sisters, Greetings from Owe Aku International Justice Project.

In preparation for next week's North American Indigenous Peoples' Caucus meeting being hosted by the Chiefs of Ontario in Niagara, Canada, Owe Aku is proud to submit the attached report and update on the preparations for the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples to be held in 2014. Due to health issues, I am not going to be able to attend the Caucus meeting in person, but Kenneth Deer will be able to answer any questions and feel free to contact me if you would like to make direct inquiries to myself or Owe Aku. We send you our best wishes for this important meeting and look forward to greeting you all in New York City for the Forum.

Because this is an issue of importance to Indigneous peoples around the globe, and in keeping with our responsibilities to try and share the information as widely as possibly, we are also sending the report to our Indigneous brothers and sisters around the world and encourage them to share it with their networks.

pila maya yelo,
Kent Lebsock

P.S. We are not sure that hard copies will be available at the North American Caucus so we encourage those who can to maybe make and take along an extra copy to share with someone who may not have received it via email. Thank you.
