Apartheid and the Holocaust: 
Genocide of American Indians

From the Censored News archives, the words of Russell Means and Louise Benally, first published in 2014. Operation Paper Clip is one of the least reported U.S. spy operations. A second U.S. spy operation, Operation Chaos, targeted Russell Means, the American Indian Movement, and their supporters in other countries. A third spy operation, at the Denver, Colorado Police Dept., spied on AIM, resisters at Big Mountain, supporters of Leonard Peltier, attorneys, grandmothers, and many others. Then, in 2014, the Stratfor files were exposed, revealing private spying on Mohawks, the Cochabamba Mother Earth conference and more. These files also revealed Native American involvement with the U.S. Fusion Centers. While much has been written about COINTELPRO, much less has been written about these other spy operations. Ultimately, Wikileaks and The Intercept further exposed the U.S. and private corporation spying. -- Censored News

Russell Means spoke a great deal about how Hitler used the genocide of American Indians -- starvation on long walks, and slow death on reservations -- as a blueprint for the Holocaust. Russell's words often focused on Dineh and the Long Walk to the prison of Bosque Redondo in Fort Sumner, N.M.
