'Powerlines' now subtitled in French

Special to Censored News

PARIS -- On July 31st Klee Benally presented his feature film ‘Power Lines’ in Montreuil, near Paris, at La Comedia. The movie was very successful as well from non-professional audience as from professionals who found the filming, the pictures and the story wonderful. The music is also great and we are impatiently waiting for the numbers played in the movie to be release as an album.
The film was subtitled by Christine Prat who also translated Klee’s presentation.
We thank Eric who organized the show and La Comedia for housing it. We also thank Sylvana Quaglia, who has been running a venue called ‘Portail Coucou’ for 30 years in Salon de Provence, who came specially from the South to Montreuil with her daughter, to see the movie and offers to organize screening in and around Marseilles. And we thank the members of CSIA-nitassinan and Idle No More France for being there and supporting the movie.

Cities of Seattle and St. Paul support Standing Rock Sioux Nation 'No Dakota Access Pipeline'

The cities of Seattle and Saint Paul join Indian Nations throughout the country and support Standing Rock Sioux battling the Dakota Access Pipeline

By Brenda Norrell
Censored News

As support pours in from Indian Nations throughout North America, two cities -- Seattle and Saint Paul, Minn. -- have passed resolutions of support for the Standing Rock Sioux Nation and its mammoth struggle to halt the Dakota Access Pipeline threatening its water source, the Missouri River.

Seattle Mayor Edward Murray said the City of Seattle is located within the treaty territory of several tribes. The city understands "the importance of outside jurisdictions respecting tribal cultural and natural resources."

Mayor Murray describes how the City of Seattle stood with its neighbors to the north, the Lummi, and came together with Indian Nations and others, to halt the Cherry Point coal port. Finally, the U.S. Corps of Engineers rejected the plan.

Pointing out the unfortunate and inaccurate name of the Dakota Access Pipeline, Mayor Murray hopes the same rejection will occu for the Standing Rock Sioux Nation, and its sacred places and water will be protected for future generations.

In its resolution, the City Council of Saint Paul recognizes the struggle and appreciates the efforts of Chairman Dave Archambault and the response of the world. Further, the Saint Paul Council states there are many residents in Saint Paul from the Sioux Nations. Saint Paul shares its own efforts to honor sacred places within the city.

The resolutions from Seattle and Saint Paul follow.


Mohawk Nation News 'Scullin (Bones) Has To Go'



Please post & distribute.
MNN. Aug. 26, 2016. NEWS FLASH! Northern District of NY Judge Frederick Scullin threw us into the dark corporate judicial cesspool and hopes we’ll drown. He’s looking for excuses to throw out Jones v Parmley 98CV374. He let our lawyers Hoffman, Anello, Peiken and the rest drop us for not taking the NYS settlement to stop the trial. We pro se have no money, no lawyers, no know-how in corporate law. We are the victims of the para-military INDIAN Detail attack in 1997. The trial has been delayed for almost 20 years without explanation. To get a fair trial this case belongs in a dispute resolution court.
Line to get into Syracuse Court; "Henh! We're here to watch rerun of "Injustice Unfolds'.
Line to get into Syracuse Court; “Henh! We’re here to watch rerun of the “Injustice Series“.
Scullin is the intelligence background judge on this case. The judge, court and troopers are all on kaia’nere:kowa land, which supercedes all their subsequent courts and rules which are based on Admiralty law of the seas.
Russia set up the first Permanent Court of Arbitration in 1899 in the Hague to settle international disputes between international organisations and between states and international organisations. [Permanent Court of Arbitration]. It is independent. Shortly after, bankers set up their own Admiralty piracy court in the Hague to make us think they’re not about money. The word “bench”, where the judge sits, come from the Latin “banco”, Cases that are tried there are for corporations, banks and always about money.

When the buccaneers arrived they agreed to live by the great peace. Then they saw how much they could steal from us and reneged on their deal. Nature is now telling them ‘You aren’t wanted here anymore’.
The court transcript and audio of the August 18, 2016 pre-trial meeting shows Scullin to be hostile, racist, biased, disrespectful and definitely not neutral. He has to be removed from this case. The court is losing money. The good mind is on trial. He’s got his orders.
Book your time now to attend this trial starting September 20, 2016 at 100 Clinton Street in Syracuse. We expect to have a full court observing the Judge Scullin [Bones] fracas.
Yes, Jim Reeves agrees: “Put your sweet lips a little closer to the phone. Let’s pretend that we’re together, all alone. I’ll tell the man to turn the jukebox way down low. And you can tell your friend there with you he’ll have to go”.
Jim Reeves “You’ll have to go”
Judge Scullin was a member of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court until May 2011. FISC issues and oversees surveillance warrants against foreign spies inside the United States by federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies, mainly NSA and FBI.  US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.
