CNN, Do You See Us Now? (tags)
Protest and educational outreach continues in Canada, the U.S., and other countries concerning pending bills and projects that would be a major assault both on indigenous people and the environment. In Canada, Bill C-45 would unilaterally alter treaties with First Nations people, drastically effect lands and waterways on both sides of the U.S.-Canada border, and reduce jobs for all Canadians. In the U.S., the proposed XL pipeline would have devastating effects on aquifers and wetlands if there was ever a leak. The Indigenous movement, Idle No More, now several months old, has been ignored by the mainstream media.

Labor Day checkpoints / Retenes del Puente del Día de Trabajo (3-10/sep/2010) (tags)
Continúa sin interrupción el "Año del Retén." Sigue la lista de retenes anunciados por la prensa corporativa para este fin de semana y más adelante. Hay utilizar máxima precaución al salir manejando en estos fines de semana que comprenden días feriados como el Día del Trabajo. La policía muchas veces recibe financiamiento que proviene directamente de la gente más humilde que es negada el derecho de trasladarse en auto. Además, hay estafadores que prometen anunciar retenes pero resulta que cobran para bastante para el servicio. (Véase este artículo de una periodista del estado de Pennsylvania.) Siempre vale más contar con sus propios camaradas de sus comunidades.
The "Year of the Checkpoint" continues relentlessly. This weekend's list of media-announced checkpoints follows. Maximum precaution is recommended for those who drive, particularly on holiday weekends. Law enformcement agencies often receive monies that come directly from the poorest, who in many states are denied the right of automobility. Moreover, there are schemers who promise to alert immigrants and civil liberties defenders about checkpoints, who later reveal that they charge high rates for the service. (See this article by a Pennsylvania journalist.) It is always better to count on your own comrades from your communities.
