MNN. Aug. 27, 2015. There was no wall to wall coverage of over 150 million ongwehonweh babies, children, youth, women, men and elders being murdered, hacked, burned or worked to death, starved, even eaten, raped and tortured. The CROWN did this to us. The settlers were all in on it. Vester Flanagan is getting his 15 minutes of fame for murdering those two tv employees on camera.
Prime Minister Harper could have said this!
We are reminded through their constant military displays, that the Western Roman Empire is the republic of war that commits genocide on a daily basis with no remorse. Vesper Flanagan learned from them. We ongwe’hon:weh are seen as less than human beings and deliberately forgotten so they can continue to benefit from the genocide they are still committing. The scalp laws have never been repealed. Like all their corporate bylaws, they are brought up when they are needed, i.e. Toronto G20 Summit in 2010. Vesper Flanagan saw his victims as less than human. It was just like the Norridgewoc, Wounded Knee, Sand Creek and thousands of other massacres carried out on our people. The military told them, “Take whatever land you want and kill the INDIANS on it”. Their policy continues.
No tears for us.
No tears for us.
The blacks were released from slavery so they could form regiments called Buffalo Soldiers for the sole purpose of killing the INDIANS. Genocide is how they and their masters got everything they have. The people of the world will finally put an end to genocide when we deal with this issue on ono’ware”geh, Great Turtle Island.
The CROWN’S business plan rewrites history to cover their crime, so they can get away with genocide. The CROWN [Western Roman Empire] seek to commit genocide whenever they need to, but nobody else can. In Canada the Truth and Reconciliation Commission gathered evidence of the CROWN’S absolute guilt for committing “genocide” of our children.dekanawida rt to g.peace
Mainstream media is the ministry of propaganda. Their main job is to promote fear and anger throughout the population as directed by the corporate matrix we are all subjected to. Their secondary job is to rewrite history to cover the genocide committed on ono’ware:geh by the Western Roman Empire. They got away with it so far by never mentioning it in the media.fifteen mins fame
Vesper Flanagan worked in the news so long that he decided to become the news. Frank Zappa’s lyrics capture this story perfectly, which we post in its entirety. [More Trouble Every Day]
Well I’m about to get up sick
From watchin’ my TV
Been checkin’ out the news
Until my eyeballs fail to see
I mean to say that every day
Is just another rotten mess
And when it’s gonna change, my friend
Is anybody’s guess
So I’m watchin’ and I’m waitin’
Hopin’ for the best
Even think I’ll go to prayin’
Every time I hear ’em sayin’
That there’s no way to delay
That trouble comin’ every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin’ every day
Wednesday I watched the riot. ..
Seen the cops out on the street
Watched ’em throwin’ rocks and stuff
And chokin’ in the heat
Listened to reports
About the whisky passin’ ’round
Seen the smoke and fire
And the market burnin’ down
Watched while everybody
On his street would take a turn
To stomp and smash and bash and crash
And slash and bust and burn
And I’m watchin’ and I’m waitin’
Hopin’ for the best
Even think I’ll go to prayin’
Every time I hear ’em sayin’
That there’s no way to delay
That trouble comin’ every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin’ every day
Well, you can cool it,
You can heat it. ..
‘Cause, baby, I don’t need it. ..
Take your tv tube and eat it
‘n all that phony stuff on sports
‘n all the unconfirmed reports
You know I watched that rotten box
Until my head begin to hurt
From checkin’ out the way
The newsman say they get the dirt
Before the guys on channel so-and-so
And further they assert
That any show they’ll interrupt
To bring you news if it comes up
They say that if the place blows up
They will be the first to tell,
Because the boys they got downtown
Are workin’ hard and doin’ swell,
And if anybody gets the news
Before it hits the street,
They say that no one blabs it faster
Their coverage can’t be beat
And if another woman driver
Gets machine-gunned from her seat
They’ll send some joker with a Browning
And you’ll see it all complete
So I’m watchin’ and I’m waitin’
Hopin’ for the best
Even think I’ll go to prayin’
Every time I hear ’em sayin’
That there’s no way to delay
That trouble comin’ every day
No way to delay
That trouble comin’ every day
Hey, you know something people?
I’m not black
But there’s a whole lots a times
I wish I could say I’m not white
Well, I seen the fires burnin’
And the local people turnin’
On the merchants and the shops
Who used to sell their brooms and mops
And every other household item
Watched the mob just turn and bite ’em
And they say it served ’em right
Because a few of them are white,
And it’s the same across the nation
Black and white discrimination
Yellin’ “You can’t understand me!”
‘n all that other jazz they hand me
In the papers and tv and
All that mass stupidity
That seems to grow more every day
Each time you hear some nitwit say
He wants to go and do you in
Because the color of your skin
Just don’t appeal to him
(No matter if it’s black or white)
Because he’s out for blood tonight
You know we got to sit around at home
And watch this thing begin
But I bet there won’t be many live
To see it really end
‘Cause the fire in the street
Ain’t like the fire in the heart
And in the eyes of all these people
Don’t you know that this could start
On any street in any town
In any state if any clown
Decides that now’s the time to fight
For some ideal he thinks is right
And if a million more agree
There ain’t no Great Society
As it applies to you and me
Our country isn’t free
And the law refuses to see
If all that you can ever be
Is just a lousy janitor
Unless your uncle owns a store
You know that five in every four
Just won’t amount to nothin’ more
Gonna watch the rats go across the floor
And make up songs about being poor
Blow your harmonica, son!

What's at Stake: The Survival of the Great Plains - Fighting Uranium Mines

"This is the first time in 27 years that a uranium mining corporation and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission have been challenged about
'their right' to water.

"Protect SacredWater. While we still have some left to protect!!!!"
Wioweya Najin Win


An Update from the Crawford Uranium Mining Front Line

Owe Aku is a grassroots organization of Lakota people and our allies founded to promote the protection of sacred water and preservation of our territorial lands.  Our actions for environmental justice rely upon cultural revitalization as our major tool in achieving our goals.  The principle location from which are operations are based are on Lakota territory along Wounded Knee Creek on what is called the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation .  More information on our work can be found at
"Wednesday August 26th was day three at the uranium hearings in Crawford, Nebraska:  Sacredwater vs Cameco, Inc.

"Today, Thursday, August 27th the Oglala Sioux Tribe historical and cultural experts Dennis YellowThunder and Mike Catches will take the stand and defend the Oglala Lakota, the Lakota Oyate (nation), Unci Maka (Mother Earth), and our ancient lands and culture.  They will be on the stand for Thursday and Friday and maybe even Saturday.

"The judges announced they may extend the hearing one more day.  See you there. Toksa."
Wioweya Najin Win 

Buffalo Bruce, a local activist and resident, added:  "The Federal Judges are sharp and drilling all attorneys and witnesses into the ground for the facts. With the new data showing the existence of many faults and fractures that didn't exist prior to the Uranium mine startup, the Judges are pointed and crisp with their questions to the mine staff and attorneys. Feeling OK!"
"Some hardcore lawyers, water protectors, hydrologists, geologists and biologists keeping Cameco and the NRC on the uranium hot seat in front of the atomic licensing board.

"Expert witnesses include hydrogeologists Wireman and Kreamer, stratiagrapher Dr. LaGarry and biochemist Linsey McLean.  Attorneys Andrew Reid, Thomas Ballanco, and David Frankel represent the intervenors who were unprecedentedly granted status before the NRC and include the Oglala Sioux Tribe, Debra White Plume, Joe American Horse Tiospaye, Tom and Loretta Cook Twice, Owe Aku (Bring Back the Way), and the Western Nebraska Resource Council."
Suree Towfighnia, Co-Director, Producer, Camera, Crying Earth Rise Up, and Owe Aku 
The website link for Crying Earth Rise Up has substantial information on uranium mining, the film and the hearing before the NRC.  Also see Owe Aku's website for more details on who we are and our fight to protect sacred water.  Also, if you're on Facebook, follow us at Owe Aku.
During a break in the proceedings in Crawford, NE, where Owe Aku and its many allies are defending Sacredwater from uranium mining for the benefit of future generations and a living Unci Maka, Wioweya Najin Win and Vic Camp (Owe Aku's spokesman known as the Eyapaha) toured some of the site where the hazardous uranium is forced from the Earth.  This struggle is nothing less than one of survival for the Lakota people who, for thousands of years, lived in this region of North America  and cared for the Earth.  It's not an accident that the only pristine places left on Earth are on Indigneous territories.  
It's because Indigenous peoples are willing to defend Mother Earth.  But this is not a Red Nations struggle, it is a human struggle and we need to all ally up.

If you can help us please visit our website and make a small donation.  Wopila.  
Resident of the mining area around Crawford, NE, Iris, a sisterhood water watcher not afraid to stand up to Cameco in her small town.  Sadly, many in Crawford are too intimidated to stand up to a giant, multinational, corporation like Cameco, but there are a few brave people who fear undrinkable water more than foreign corporations!
