Diné taking action in Window Rock to address John McCain's ecocidal and genocidal policies. This morning at the Navajo Nation Museum, members of various Indigenous nations joined together in collective solidarity around water security, resistance against resource extraction, and closed door negotiation. 
Senator John McCain's meeting had to be moved to the auditorium while outside protesters made their intentions known through protest and song.
"We will rise up as the new leaders of our Nations, in solidarity with our Indigenous Brothers and Sisters, and we start by saying NO MORE ALLOWING state or federal politicians and the corporations they represent entrance into our homelands. Those who are responsible for our people being poisoned, starved, kept in poverty and removed from our sacred territories, are not welcomed here!! We will take back our power and restore our homelands, take care of our water, protect our people and our sacred sites, and mentor a new generation of youth who will change this paradigm of exploitation and greed!" (Collective voice of those united in solidarity)

Adriano Tsinigine said, "Showing my support from the Navajo Nation. Met Mr. McCain, and asked for a photo, then I pulled out my 'Protect Oak Flat' card and when he saw it, he looked me right in the eye and said 'Get out of here, now!' Haha, this ma'ii is just afraid of us, because of how powerful we are."

Dine’ chased Arizona Sen. John McCain off the Navajo Nation on Friday, yelling at him that the days of coming on the Navajo Nation to steal land and water rights, and carry out ecocide and genocide, are over.
Dine’ (Navajo) protesters blocked McCain's speech and chased after his car, yelling at him that neither him nor the corporations he represents are welcome here.
Dine' protesters posted photos and video on the Internet of chasing McCain's car off the Navajo Nation Capitol of Window Rock, Arizona. Watch video of Dine' chasing after McCain's car and see more photos: 
Nihigaal bee lina, Journey of Existence, are Dine’ walkers who have been walking to the Four Sacred Mountains. They are speaking out for the land, air and water that they are defending for future generations.
They posted a collective statement by the protesters.

Adriano Tsinigine said he posed for a photo with McCain, then pulled out his card supporting Apaches at Oak Flat. Apaches are defending sacred land from McCain's copper mine that he sneaked through in the defense bill.
Tsinigine compared McCain to a ma'ii, coyote.
"Showing my support from the Navajo Nation, met Mr. McCain, and asked for a photo. Then I pulled out my 'Protect Oak Flat' card and when he saw it, he looked me right in the eye and said, 'Get out of here, now!' Haha, this ma'ii is just afraid of us, because of how powerful we are."

Diné’ riepen onomwonden naar Sen. John McCain, terwijl ze hem van hun grond verjaagden, dat de dagen van diefstal van land en waterrechten, en het uitvoeren van eccocide en genocide nu echt voorbij zijn.
Dine’ ( Navajo) activisten verhinderden McCain’s speech en achtervolgden McCain’s auto terwijl ze hem toeriepen dat noch hij, noch de corporaties die hij vertegenwoordigd hier welkom zijn.
Dine’ activisten hebben foto’s en video op het internet verspreid

Nihigaal bee lina, de ‘reis van het bestaan’, zijn Dine’ walkers die de Four Sacred Mountains afgestapt hebben. Zij spraken zich uit voor het land, lucht en water dat zij beschermen voor toekomstige generaties.

Door Nihigaal bee lina

Dine’s voeren actie in Window Rock tegen John McCain’s ‘ecocidal’ en ‘genocidal’ beleid.
Vandaag (14 augustus 2015) verzamelden leden van verschillende inheemse naties zich in het Navajo Nation Museum, in collectieve solidariteit rond de bescherming van het water, verzet tegen de extractie van hun bronnen en gesloten deur overeenkomsten.
De meeting van Senator John McCain moest verplaatst worden naar het auditorium terwijl buiten demonstranten hun bedoelingen duidelijk kenbaar maakten met hun protest en liederen.
“ Wij staan op als de nieuwe leiders van onze volken, in solidariteit met onze inheemse broeders en zusters, en we beginnen alvast met staat en federale politiekers en hun corporate vrienden de toegang tot onze thuislanden te weigeren. Zij die er verantwoordelijk voor zijn dat ons volk vergiftigd en uitgehongerd wordt, in armoede worden gehouden en gedwongen worden om weg te trekken uit onze sacrale gebieden, zijn niet welkom hier!! Wij zullen onze macht teruggrijpen en onze thuislanden herstellen, wij zullen zorg dragen voor ons water, onze mensen en onze sacrale sites beschermen, en een nieuwe generatie van jongeren opleiden die dit model van uitbuiting en hebzucht zal veranderen.” (collectieve stem van hen die verenigd zijn in solidariteit)

Adriano Tsinigine zei: “ Mijn solidariteitactie met de Navajo Nation. Ik heb mr. McCain ontmoet en vroeg of hij met me op de foto wou staan. Toen haalde ik mijn ‘Protect Oak Flat’ kaart uit mijn zak en toen hij die zag keek hij me recht in de ogen en zei”Maak dat je hier weg komt, Nu!”. Haha, deze ma’li (Coyote) heeft duidelijk schrik van ons.”
