Re: The stealing of land…

 From Facebook:


It’s nice that Patagonia is trying to hit this issue, but the Indigenous communities affected by this move most MUST be heard. Not one tribal government who has significant stakes in this have been talked to or included in this effort. 5 tribal governments have had their tribal sovereignty cast aside making this the second major move Trump has made against Indigenous people in this move that is less unprecedented and more falling in line with the American tradition of disregarding this land’s first people. The space proposed for industrialization is filled with over 100,000 sacred sites, ceremonial grounds, and burials of old ones. This is Indian Land. This is the land our Creator has covenanted to us. We are the stewards of this land, and we will fight to protect it always. (design concept by Alexis Munoa Dyer and Katie Wilderness Brown! THANK YOU!) #savebearsland grab.jpgears #protectthesacred

I am very upset at the course of the U.S. Here is a list so far (let me know if I forgot something) foreign and domestic mismanagement, foolishness, bullying behavior, meddling, wreaking havoc, negligence, lying, cheating, unlawful behavior, disrespect. I have never in my 61 years experienced such a mess. The people in charge need to be immediately fired.
Foreign –
North Korea,
Domestic –
Puerto Rico,
Alaska Wilderness open to mining,
National Park reduction,
treaty violations and abuse of indigenous populations,
Flint, Michigan water,
oil and gas pipeline proliferation,
fracking and the use of eminent domain,
climate change denial,
elimination of the EPA,
militarization of police, police brutality, a broken criminal justice system
gun violence,
a WTF wall,
reduction of medical care and insurance,
high cost of higher education,
privatization of public school,
increase in taxes,
shrinking of the middle class,
reduction of civil rights,
invasion of privacy,
curtailing free press,
attack on unions,
attack on women’s reproductive rights,
ending net neutrality,
increase in domestic surveillance,
The War on Terror,
The War on Drugs,
It is a war on the common people right now in a prelude to an actual devastating real war and I am wondering how long this list has to get before everyone wakes up that it is not business as usual and something must be done.
