Akwesasne has a history as well of battling government and big business in an effort to protect our waters, our environment, and the inherent responsibility we possess to be the keepers of the land. Our support is with all those carrying out the Dakota Access pipeline protests.

That injunction against the construction by the feds was just to put people off. They needed things to quiet down in the mass media so they could quietly clear out the protesters.


The Us government always sues for peace when its losing. To get the upper hand.

Thanks for posting the Oka stuff.
Most people down here never saw it, and lots that did ignored it. Same with the Tyindyaga stuff, the Kanesatake stuff,
and the Caledonia protests.

Or the James Bay protests...

Sorry for anything I misspelled, I butcher Mohawk & english equally....

The people at Standing Rock are standing up FOR ALL OF US, whether posters here choose to pay attention or not.
There's always one on a thread who intentionally disrupts by claiming "it's my opinion & I have a right to it". In this case I have some oily water for ya to drink, and there's still plenty of polluted dirt I can dump off for your garden.
( Love canal, Brownsfields, ect)
If it's good enough for the protesters to be forced to live with, I think you should have some too.


BTW for the other poster, I don't think the law enforcement that got dragged into this is at fault.
From what I've seen, they have been very laid back. It's the private security companies personnel that got all froggy and combative.

The injunction only covers a few miles of land, north and south of that the companies are free to continue working.

Perhaps this would be the only thing these people understand, while they are comfortably sitting in their homes denigrating those who are standing up for their rights and their kids futures...i would hazard a guess they would be screaming loudly if it was their lives and kids futures at stake ...

Thanks the OKA Crisis goes along this Thread i would think

Justice, its close to the same situation

Where im from ,

We have been battling Government and Company's
for Decades to centuries .. for US we are between both Borders
Canada and USA and had Problems with Both Sides , of Land Control
what Laws to abide , and incing there way into OUR Land ,
Acting as if they can have control, well they cant, by a rightful Treaty
as both sides choose to ignore.. at times

Funny that Comedians and Singers had expressed this too Like George Carlin about drinking water in his Tours and the Same with Johnny Cash about the water in Folsom Prison that the the Prison officials wouldn't even drink the water ..

Anyhow Here an Article about the GM Plant contaminating the Soil and leaking Near a fellow Mohawk Property that lives right next to the GM Plant .. of what he had done ..

Mohawk Man Arrested for Taking Backhoe to Superfund Site

Larry Thompson, 56, was charged on August 11 with two felonies and two misdemeanors after he drove onto the notoriously polluted mound, scooped up contaminated soil and loaded it into railroad cars that were waiting to cart away debris from the GM building that is being torn down in the wake of bankruptcy proceedings.

“Remove the pile, remove the Superfund site, take all their poison out of here and put it into a secure site,” Thompson said of her wishes for the masked pile of crud. “They call it a cleanup but it’s really a cover-up, because they’re just covering it up.”

New York Mohawk: Move toxic General Motors dump from tribal lands
www.syracuse.com...

MASSENA, N.Y. (AP) --

Larry Thompson sits high in his tractor cab and drives to a chain-link fence along his family property on the Mohawk Indians' Akwesasne Reservation, where they fished, grew vegetables and played as children.

He points to a toxic landfill about 30 feet away, stretching toward the St. Lawrence River.

"The whole hill," he says evenly.
"Our gardens were right here, where that sign is."
Thompson's family put up the sign 20 years ago, warning: "PCBs, danger area."

The 'gubment intervention' put everyone off, so they could go back to work, secretly they hoped.

Not...

Heavily armored riot gear police from the Morton County Sheriff's Department, North Dakota State Patrol, and other agencies have descended on protesters who chained themselves to equipment along the construction sites. Over 20 were arrested.


What did they think was going to happen?

Sadly, it's been happening for decades now and we are all still sitting around. More worried about insignificant stuff. The natives understand what's at stake and finally took a stand, while we have major cities crumbling, being mass poisoned and we just sit around, doing nothing.

Indeed...We have reached critical mass when it comes to people being selfish and only caring about their small insignificant worlds.....i think people are so detached from reality they care more about how much tax they pay as opposed to things like the environment and the lively hoods of others, even if it will affect all of us in the long term, its only the short term that matters....its what i would call tunnel vision and the education system is at the heart of the issue...

As far as drinking water a spill isn't going to harm the aquifer. However the damage done to wildlife in thr area could be huge with a leak. Especially if it makes its way to a nearby stream or river. I can say if it was going through my back yard I'd be concerned about the damage to the local wildlife. But since they aren't going to stop the pipeline probably better to force concessions from the canadians. For example there leak detection system they can't tell until over 2 percent has been lost. For me thATS crazy. Think the volume this pipeline wilL carry so even a spill of less than 2 percent is hundreds of gallons of oil. The other concession I'd seek would be cement catch basins around the pipes. They don't want to do this because it costs to much yet in certain areas they will have to if it's considered a possible threat to drinking water. I say the maximum protection should be required every where not just in select locations.

Right again. I posted this on September 12... in an earlier thread...
US government halts oil pipeline opposed by Native Americans


Always the cynic, methinks the government may have requested the "voluntary... temporary" halt to the construction in order to deploy additional security forces in the area. Just a thought.

It could be true. Facebook has been caught censoring content many times.

Anybody know if Zuckerberg has a stake in the pipeline?

BTW, this is really a tough issue for me. I believe that energy independence should be a basic common-sense public policy, but this thuggish police crap is like something the old robber barons would do to keep their economic slave workers in line.
