Rigged Election! How Canada controlsFirst Nations, and keeps the 'scouts' on councils Statement by Terrance Nelson First Nation Roseau River Censored News February 28th 2013 In middle east countries, drones kill anyone who opposes the west.

Mohawk Nation News 'Political Paranoia'

MNN: POLITICAL PARANOIAPosted on February 28, 2013

MNN. Feb. 28, 2013. Political paranoia is being considered a mental disorder. Those who question everything and especially conspiracy theorists, are considered to suffer from political paranoia. Every social disaster or political movement has its loonies: Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot. Jim Jones, Duncan Campbell Scott, Steven Harper, Tom Flanagan, Crusty the Clown, Federal Court of Canada, etc. What conditions have to exist before the paranoia is believed? As soon as it appears on mainstream TV or media, everybody believes it. If it’s not, they don’t believe it. Take the test to see if you are paranoid.

Russell Means Remembered 'Long Walk Song'


Pearl Means shares this video as family and friends begin the second honoring of Russell Means on Pine Ridge in South Dakota.

In fond remembrance of Russell Means ( 1939-2012 ). A fearless warrior for First Nations people. A challenging force conscience for all North Americans. I never met the man, but I always liked him. I was always humbled, enlightened, and encouraged to reflect by what he had to say. His frankness and strength of conviction evoked the same in others and served his concerns for his people well.

"Long Walk" was composed and is performed here by Lloyd Vivola. Inspired at first by sadness during the weeks after Russell Mean's departure, then by hope that a new era of treaty rights, social justice, truth and reconciliation is possible. Lyrics posted below.

The photos in the video are not the property of the video author and are borrowed here only to pay tribute to the life of Russell Means. For more information on the photos, search Google I…

Searching for Sugar Man wins Oscar Best Documentary

Censored News congratulates Searching for Sugar Man for winning the Oscar for Best Documentary, and the life and music of Sixto Diaz Rodriguez! Producers said Rodriguez didn't attend because he didn't want to take credit for the film, which says a lot about who he is.

RENO -- The Great Basin Resource Watch (GBRW) and the Western Shoshone Defense Project on February 20th filed a ‘Motion for Preliminary Injunction’ in Federal Court in Reno following their filing a February 15th Complaint challenging the decisions of the United States Department of the Interior and Bureau of Land Management (BLM) approving the Mount Hope Project located some 23 miles north of the town of Eureka.

According to the Motion, “The Project will have immediate, irreparable, and permanent impacts to the local ranching and farming communities and families which have lived there since the 1860s and to the critical environmental, historical, cultural and wildlife resources that will be outright eliminated or significantly degraded by the Project.”

Dine' Angela Davis: The Enemy Within: Navajo Generating Station

Angela Davis, Dine' writes to the Alamo Council Delegate, regarding sponsorship of lease extension for Navajo Generating Station, one of the dirtiest coal fired power plants in the US. It is fed with coal ripped from the earth by profiteer Peabody Coal, which continues the suffering of Navajos on Black Mesa, to provide electricity for the Southwest while many Navajos go without.
The Honorable George Apachito
P.O. Box 827
Magdalena, NM 87825

Dear Delegate Apachito,

Yah’at’eeh. It has come to my attention that you recently sponsored a resolution (004-13) that recommends that the Navajo Nation extend the lease for the Navajo Generating Station. I’m writing to urge you to put a hold on voting on this resolution to extend the lease until further study and review by all our tribal delegates. I think more time to decide on the vote can ensure that the Navajo Nation obtain the maximum amount of economic compensation for our natural resources and investments. This involves too man…

Mohawk Nation News 'License to Kill'

MNN: LICENSE TO KILLPosted on February 24, 2013

MNN. Feb. 24, 2013. Freedom of speech is guaranteed in Section 2 of Canada’s Constitution Act, 1982. Everyone has the fundamental freedom of “thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication”. An honest state presents the facts for public discussion.

Bureau Chief who hands out licenses to kill.
The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 2008 that CSIS, Canadian Secret Intelligence Services, cannot destroy evidence. This happens every day to us about our history, rights, funds and the ongoing genocide of our people.

Canada does not respect its own laws. It has a propaganda mill to control the media. It suppresses and rewrites historical facts, trying to make us invisible. Many vital documents are being destroyed.
We all have minds, the capacity to see and hear, to think and feel. Every person’s ability to sense and understand is important. Each of us has a unique insight to contrib…

Mohawk Nation News 'Populaton and Resource Control PRC'


MNN. Feb. 24, 2013. Special agents such as the CBSA Canadian Border Services Agents are trained in psychological warfare and state brutality. They wear black fascist uniforms with Kevlar vests. They try to humiliate, demoralize and injure those who question and complain about mistreatment.

According to Wikileaks, PRC methods devised by the US are designed to confuse, destroy and terminate. “Low level psychological warfare” is mixed with high tech violence on target groups, like Indigenous, followed by the homeless, welfare, pensioners and then the general population.
The US Department of Defense “Foreign Internal Defense Tactics Techniques and Procedures for Special Forces” manual describes 3 types of insurgency. The third, “Traditional Insurgency”, refers to Indigenous resistance. Onkwehonwe are engaged in centuries of resistance to regain full sovereignty. We are “dangerous criminals” and are harassed a…

Mohawk Nation News 'Perverted Police Policy'

PERVERTED POLICE POLICYPosted on February 23, 2013

MNN. Feb. 24, 2013. Indigenous children are being murdered. Hundreds of girls and women are disappearing. We have to guard ourselves and each other. Take cameras, cell phones, become a witness and make good notes. We need names, badge numbers, videos and photos of the abused and abusers. Then we should file complaints, take them to court and put pressure on politicians. The police and politicians work together to continue the illusion of freedom in the police state we are living in.
Life goes on.
Cops are the worst abusers. In Northern British Columbia Human Rights Watch has documented that RCMP are the perpetrators of attacks and rapes on girls and women. In Thunder Bay Ontario the Mayor admits to his role in racism as if it’s normal.
Watch out for agent provocateurs. They dress like us, with backpacks and vehicles full of implements. They are really cops! Agent provacateurs at G20 Montebello They start throwing these at our…

The racket is to make it look like they got our consent. The ambulance chasers [lawyers] are trained to build a hall of mirrors. When consultation goes on, they make sure we do not hear, see or say anything. Three Monkeys Strategy.

We can’t hear, see or say anything. We are overrun by chasers.

Then meetings are held behind our backs with their mentors and clients on how to avoid consulting us or to twist what we’ve said.
Rezz Dogs! The bar associations hold seminars to train these chasers on how to help industry, government and Indigenous ‘stakeholders’ to “consult” us without actuall…

First Nation Terrance Nelson: Refusing to be the 'house nigger'

Refusing to be the 'house nigger' By Terrance Nelson First Nation Roseau River Ojibway Censored News Evander Kane has every right to challenge racism in the NHL and in Winnipeg. Despite the attack by Don Cherry upon Evander Kane for using the "race card", there is no doubt that racism in the NHL is real. Not long ago Boxing, Baseball, Football, and Basketball were white only because blacks were excluded. The last bastion of white dominance in a sport is hockey, why wouldn't there be racist reaction to blacks in a "white" sport. Paul Friesen who initially wrote in the Winnipeg Sun about the complaint Evander Kane made should go see the movie Django Unchained. My 20 year son loved the movie so much, he went with me to see it a second time. Written and directed by Quentin Tarantino, the word "nigger" is used so often in the three hour movie, the shock wears off. The movie is cartoon-ish, something like "Kill Bill" but although I …
