'Haul No!' Tour Scheduled to Oppose Grand Canyon Uranium Mining & Transport

Grand Canyon, AZ — As Energy Fuels Inc. (EFI) threatens to start uranium mining on sacred Indigenous Lands managed by the US Forest Service, just miles from the Grand Canyon, Haul No! has planned a 300 mile awareness and action tour along the Canyon Mine haul route.

Who: Haul No! is a volunteer Indigenous-led group collaborating with Indigenous communities and leaders, environmental organizations, and community-based advocates working to stop nuclear colonialism in the Southwest.

What: Haul No! Tour including presentations on public health, cultural and environmental impacts from uranium mining, and a direct action workshop. Starting near the White Mesa Uranium Mill, also operated by EFI, and stopping in impacted Indigenous communities and the city of Flagstaff, the tour will wrap up at sacred Red Butte near Canyon Mine. The tour will culminate at a Prayer Gathering organized by the Havasupai Nation.

When & Where: June 13–25, 2017 (see schedule below)

Why: Up to 12 trucks a day with 30 tons each of highly radioactive uranium ore are slated to be transported through mostly small reservation communities.The Havasupai Nation has legally challenged the US Forest Service due failure complete meaningful consultation with the Havasupai in their 1986 Environmental Impact Statement regarding Canyon Mine. A decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals is still pending.
Although the Navajo Nation has banned transport of uranium through its lands since 2012, EFI would be permitted by the state of Arizona due to jurisdictional issues.

Possible radioactive contamination to land, water, and air from the Canyon Mine, White Mesa Mill, and transport of uranium would impact northern Arizona, southeast Utah, the Colorado River, Moenkopi Wash, the San Juan River, and the lands and cultural resources of the Havasupai, Hopi, Navajo, Ute, and Paiute peoples.

Mohawk Nation News 'Nobody Loves Me'

Nobody Loves Me
By Mohawk Nation News
Please post and distribute.
MNN. June 7, 2017. … everybody hates me. I think I’ll go to the garden and eat worms. Long thin worms, slimey worms, , short fat juicy worms …
Our land has to be governed by the te-wa-ta-tawi, our sovereignty as a people who can take care of ourselves and our mother, as nature intended. 

“henh! te-wa-ta-tawi”.
The secret societies of the Europeans and their slaves have set themselves up as the corporation of the United States of America and the colony of Canada. Our people are still being mass murdered and our mother is still being raped.
The definition of a cult is someone who follows orders blindly. The police and military fit perfectly into the definition. For 500 years the invaders with greedy weak cult-like minds have schemed to steal everything from us. They are contaminated and are beginning to attack each other. 
We are healing in the hilly country.
Christian principles of world power under their Vatican created god, “owistah” [money] is creating suspicion, starvation, depression and sicknesses amongst the people everywhere.
Their leader is vilified. The real masters are behind the scenes.
Orders based on false information is confusing them which makes them unable to discern the danger. 

According to their programming, orders are supposed to be given to them directly by those above them in the pyramid. The ruling elite sold them out, took the money and left them on the coast as they sailed away to deal with the next wave that crashing ashore. 

Nobody will save them because the republic of war has been threatening and attacking everybody around the world for hundreds of year. USA has found itself increasingly alone. With so many inter-generational enemies, the chickens will come home to roost.
They are chained to their pyramid with barely enough to eat. The pyramidal structure of decision making will fail. Instead of following orders from those above, the bottom feeders will eat those above them. A chain reaction will be created so that the pyramidal thought-control makers will consume itself. It’s all in the field manuals called the Bible, Talmud and Koran, which are all based on the story of Abraham. 

Prime Minister Trudeau has just announced the enlargement of the military to help his corporations provide ever-growing dividends to their shareholders at the expense of the land and the people. 
Brutality, not bravery, is ruling their lives. Creation witnessed these monsters as they murdered and buried our ancestors. Our mother taught us not to wait for someone to save us but to rely on ourselves and the original instructions from the natural world.
Donald Trump should be heeding the message of Three Dog Knight back in the sixties when they sang about loneliness: “One is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do. Two can be as bad as one. It’s the loneliest number since the number one. No is the saddest experience you’ll ever know. Yes is the saddest experience you’ll ever know. Cause one is the loneliest number that you’ll ever do”.

Mohawk Nation News 'Fear is All in The Head'

MNN. June 6, 2017. European enemies killed us quickly and then slowly by starvation, depression, sickness and corporate regulations. 
Their colonial settlers have no ability to think or discern danger. They follow orders blindly. Their immorality is hidden so no one can see it including themselves. In the end their guiding pyramid structure will cause them to attack each other. 
Their god called “owistah”[money]  has the machine gun and the flak jacket that keeps them in their nightmare. 
When they leave great turtle island, we will give them a great “farewell”. 
We will fortify our cultural barricades and heal ourselves and all life on great turtle island.  
great turtle island was a paradise. The US has made our land a haven for scoundrels and to train crooks. 
Pink Floyd is concerned about the corporations and their plans: “Mother do you think they’ll drop the bomb? Mother do you think they’ll like the song? Mother do you think they’ll try to break my balls? Ooh ah, mother should I build a wall? Mother should I run for president? Mother should I trust the government? Mama will they put me in the firing line” Ooh ah, is it just a waste of time? Hush now baby baby don’t you cry.” [Mother will they drop the bomb?]
