Funny you ask for anger. I've been seething all afternoon at the bloody royal family. Yeah, the royals are busy celebrating the queen's jubilee by
visiting all her (their) holdings all over the world. I am feeling 're-possessed' once again and I hate it. Three visits in 2 years. To add
insult to injury we the broke, overtaxed people must pay all the bills for these lavish tour events, the security details everywhere and of course
transportation and their wardrobe. (Yes, they do bill us for their clothes when visiting.)
It's bad enough they're on our money and we can't get away from daily reminders that they are the masters as we the serfs, but today I watched
Charles visit with Grand Chief Atlio who made it known ahead of time that he is asking for an appointment to see the queen to discuss the lack of
progress on keeping their word which they signed in documents and treaties. I am not indigenous, but I am nonetheless furious that once again these
indigenous people will have to suffer humiliation and yet more cruel disappointment as the royals smile, shake hands and fail to live up to their
agreements. They have been to the UN and their documents were presented and legitimized.
It's time the royals worked actively to undo years of deliberate harm done to them with genocidal policies that seriously harmed the natives and
their progeny. If the royals had any integrity, or showed us they are working towards getting a speck of some, I'd feel less outraged. /end rant.
