Tucson: Angry community members storm G4S Wackenhut office

Protest Targets Prison Firm for Profiteering, Police Cite 16 for Trespassing
Press statement

Censored News
TUCSON --(June 29, 2011) At around 2 p.m. today, community members burst uninvited into the Tucson offices of private security firm G4S and declared in no uncertain terms their opposition to the company’s profiteering at the expense of immigrant communities in Tucson, across the nation and throughout the world. Incensed by G4S’ role in promoting the criminalization of immigrants and the expansion of the private prison industry, the protestors entered the G4S office complex, delivered a letter to company representatives and unfurled a banner reading “G4S: Prison profiteering destroys communities.”

Today’s action, which was organized autonomously by Tucson community members, was carried out under the banner of Direct Action for Freedom of Movement. Although the protesters were never asked to leave the building, and were there only 10 minutes, the Tucson Police cited 16 individuals for criminal trespassing.

G4S is the world’s largest security company and has public contracts to transport, detain and imprison immigrants throughout the world. The company is infamous for the mistreatment of individuals in its custody, with the most atrocious examples including the senseless deaths of two inmates in 2010. Since 2006, G4S has provided transportation for Customs and Border Protection and, in 2010 alone, secured over 125 million dollars in contracts from the Department of Homeland Security.

G4S not only reaps the profits of border enforcement, they also shape public policy to criminalize immigrants and ensure a steady stream of people to fill their buses and jails. G4S subsidiary Wackenhut is a member of the American Legislative Exchange Council, the organization responsible for drafting the model legislation that became SB1070 and similar laws in Utah, Georgia, Indiana and Alabama.

Protest participant Carly Rexroad explained the goals of today’s action: “G4S is the world’s largest private security firm, reaping millions in profit from imprisoning immigrants and tearing families apart. By targeting G4S we hope to help illuminate the connections between prison profiteering and the proliferation of state legislation that criminalizes immigrants and funnels them into the jails and detention facilities of the very companies who wrote and lobbied for that legislation. As long as this pattern continues, G4S can expect to see actions like today’s multiply and escalate.”

Community member Matthew Johnson described the ways in which profiteering destroys communities: “The grotesque face of border militarization is evident in every SBInet surveillance tower now left defunct to litter the desert, every mile of border wall that scars the landscape, and every G4S-operated bus that deports hundreds of people each day or drives them to Tucson to be fed directly into the prison industry through the expedited proceedings of Operation Streamline. Every immigrant transported by G4S for deportation or incarceration represents a family whose loved one is missing, locked in a cage or unceremoniously dumped over the southern border.”

Hackers slam Arizona police again to expose racism and corruption

Censored News

Hackers have slammed Arizona police again, to expose racism and corruption:

"We also found details of Jeff Wilson, a former DPS officer and member of a Navajo tribe, planning on suing the department for racial discrimination charges. Amongst the civil rights violations occurring in AZDPS, Sgt. Jeff Eavenson and others were illegally issuing tickets to Navajos in AZ state court jurisdiction instead of tribal courts. When Jeff Wilson brought these charges up to the department, they punished him and pushed him out of the police force. We welcome Wilson's attempts to expose his racist administrators and so we won't be releasing his info."

Hackers slam Arizona cops again with super personal data spill

AntiSec Slams Arizona Cops (Again) with Super Personal Data Spill

By Sam Biddle

Looks like last week's "Chinga La Migra" strike against the Arizona Border Police was only part one—the sequel's landed today, and this time it's personal. Like, really personal: Anonymous is claiming social security numbers, girlfriend pics, and more.

The dumps contents—if they're authentic—will be a massive slap not only to the integrity of Arizona's state security, but the lives of its police force. Sayeth Anonymous, in "Chinga La Migra Communique Dos":

In this second bulletin, we're dumping booty pirated from a dozen Arizona police officer's personal email accounts looking specifically for humiliating dirt. This leak has names, addresses, phone numbers, passwords, social security numbers, online dating account info, voicemails, chat logs, and seductive girlfriend pictures belonging to a dozen Arizona police officers. We found more internal police reports, cops forwarding racist chain emails, k9 drug unit cops who use percocets, and a convicted sex offender who was part of FOP Maricopa Lodge Five.

We also hit the AZDPS spokesperson Stephen Harrison who been bragging to the news about how they are upgrading their security and how they will catch the evil hackers who exposed them. Clearly not secure enough, because we owned his personal hotmail, facebook and accounts and dumped all his personal details for the world to see. The same fate will meet anyone else who tries to paint us as terrorists in an Orwellian attempt to pass more pro-censorship or racial-profiling police state laws.

Like the first AZ attack, this one's equally politically motivated, angled against policies Anonymous considers racist and wrong. So what's the AntiSec endgame in Arizona? Anonymous says it'll continue to target
Police officers who lock people up for decades, who get away with brutality and torture, who discriminate against people of color, who make and break their own laws as they see fit. We are making sure they experience just a taste of the same kind of violence and terror they dish out on an every day basis. Our advice to you is to quit while you still can and turn on your commanding officers before you end up in our cross hairs next, because we're not stopping until every prisoner is freed and every prison is burned to the ground.

Again, we can't authenticate the dump's contents at the moment, but if true, Anonymous is going to have some serious law enforcement ire pointed in its direction. [AnonymousIRC]


Just when you thought it was over, we're hitting the Arizona police state with

our second round of attacks. In our first bulletin we dumped a treasure trove of

secret law enforcement documents. In this second bulletin, we're dumping booty

pirated from a dozen Arizona police officer's personal email accounts looking

specifically for humiliating dirt. This leak has names, addresses, phone

numbers, passwords, social security numbers, online dating account info,

voicemails, chat logs, and seductive girlfriend pictures belonging to a dozen

Arizona police officers. We found more internal police reports, cops forwarding

racist chain emails, k9 drug unit cops who use percocets, and a convicted sex

offender who was part of FOP Maricopa Lodge Five.

We also hit the AZDPS spokesperson Stephen Harrison who been bragging to the

news about how they are upgrading their security and how they will catch the

evil hackers who exposed them. Clearly not secure enough, because we owned his

personal hotmail, facebook and accounts and dumped all his personal

details for the world to see. The same fate will meet anyone else who tries to

paint us as terrorists in an Orwellian attempt to pass more pro-censorship or

racial-profiling police state laws.

We also found details of Jeff Wilson, a former DPS officer and member of a

Navajo tribe, planning on suing the department for racial discrimination

charges. Amongst the civil rights violations occuring in AZDPS, Sgt. Jeff

Eavenson and others were illegally issuing tickets to Navajos in AZ state court

jurisdiction instead of tribal courts. When Jeff Wilson brought these charges up

to the department, they punished him and pushed him out of the police force. We

welcome Wilson's attempts to expose his racist administrators and so we won't we

releasing his info.

Yes we're aware that putting the pigs on blast puts risks their safety, those

poor defenseless police officers who lock people up for decades, who get away

with brutality and torture, who discriminate against people of color, who make

and break their own laws as they see fit. We are making sure they experience

just a taste of the same kind of violence and terror they dish out on an every

day basis. Our advice to you is to quit while you still can and turn on your

commanding officers before you end up in our cross hairs next, because we're not

stopping until every prisoner is freed and every prison is burned to the ground.

To other hackers: it's time to set aside our differences and join the antisec

popular front against the corrupt governments, corporations, militaries, and law

enforcement of the world. We promise you much more bounty to come guaranteed to

bring smiles to the faces of all those who have hated the police. Unite and

fight, for the flames of revolution burn bright!

Copwatch and Infoshop on Missouri's bizarre domestic threat list

Copwatch, Infoshop and Christian vegetarians are on Missouri’s domestic ‘treat’ list -- rather than domestic ‘threat’ list -- thanks to a misspelled word

By Brenda Norrell
Censored News

Copwatch, Infoshop and Christian vegetarians are all under surveillance because they pose a “significant domestic terrorist” threat.

Why? Because they are anarchists, according to the Missouri Information Analysis Center (MIAC) of the Division of Drug and Crime Control.

Well, actually, due to a misspelled word, it says they all pose a “significant domestic terrorist ‘treat’ at this time.”

Missouri, are they domestic threats or domestic treats?

The report, “MIAC Strategic Report 11-28-2008 on Anarchists,” is a police watch list published in 2008. The watch list was exposed by Lulzsec, in the Arizona Department of Public Safety files.

The Missouri watch list tosses feminists, peace activists, labor activists and environmentalists into the mix.

“Although they have not all been listed, we believe the groups discussed pose a significant domestic terrorist treat at this time,” the report states.

In its bizarre categories of anarchists, the Missouri watch list states, “direct action radical sub-groups not all believe in violence.” Feminists, peace activists and race equality activists are listed as anarchists in the Anarchist Punk category.

“Many Anarcho-Punks are supporters of issues such as animal rights, racial equality, anti-heterosexism, feminism, environmentalism, worker's autonomy, the anti-war movement, and the anti-globalization movement.”

Christian vegetarians are apparently something to be feared, at least by Missouri officials, who fail to explain how being a vegetarian deserves a mention on a police watch list.

Here’s what Missouri officials say:

“Christian anarchists have opposed war and other ‘Statist’ aggression through nonviolent tax resistance. Many Christian Anarchists were vegetarian or vegan.”

The watch list includes a variety of labor union organizations, Black Bloc and eco-anarchist groups, without naming any personal names.

Although Copwatch is most often considered a human rights organization and Infoshop, an online news source, Missouri officials, however, place both on the anarchists watch list, as domestic threats:

Copwatch is a network of United States volunteer organizations that "police the police". Copwatch groups usually engage in monitoring of the police, videotaping police activity, educating the public about police misconduct, and advocating for more accountable law enforcement practices.

The main function of most Copwatch groups is monitoring police activity. "Copwatchers" go out on foot or driving patrols in their communities and videotape interactions between the police and civilians. Some groups also patrol at protests and demonstrations to ensure that the rights of protesters are not violated by police officers. Copwatch organizations generally abide by a policy of non-interventions with the police, although this may not be true for all groups. The anarchist ran Infoshop News published the new “Copwatch 101” booklet found at the following address

Run for the 1950s bomb shelter: Missouri officials say the Anti-Racist Action Network is not only anarchist, but are “sometime seen to be ‘Red’ or Communist.”

Anti-Racist Action Network (ARA) is a decentralized network of anti-fascist and Anti-Racist Activists. ARA activists organize actions to disrupt neo-nazi and white supremacist groups and help to organize resistance mainly to fascist and racist ideologies. ARA groups also oppose sexism, homophobia, heterosexism, anti-semitism, and anti-abortion activists. They are sometimes seen to be "Red" or Communist, particularly by detractors, however; the network includes a large number of anarchists.

ARA started in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1987. Since then it has expanded to different communities, countries and continents. Members of Love and Rage, a revolutionary anarchist organization played a major role in building ARA groups and the ARA Network in the 1990s. They are sometimes associated with the Skinhead and Punk subcultures and work with organizations such as Skinheads Against Racial Prejudice (SHARP).

Environmentalists, check your activist cards to make sure you’re in the right category:

Green Anarchism puts an emphasis on environmental issues. Some green anarchists can be described as Anarcho-Primitivists and sometimes Anti-Civilization Anarchists, though not all Green Anarchists are Primitivists.

Finally, here’s Missouri’s take on dumpster divers, Animal Liberation Front and Earth Liberation Front.

Warning: Rereading this can result in a loss of brain cells:

Some anarcho-punks are “straight edge”, claiming that alcohol, tobacco, drugs and promiscuity are instruments of oppression and are self-destructive because they cloud the mind and wear down a person's resistance to other types of oppression. Some crust punks also condemn the waste of land, water and resources necessary to grow crops to make alcohol, tobacco and drugs, forfeiting the potential to grow and manufacture food. Some may be straight edge for religious reasons, such as in the case of Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, or Hare Krishna anarcho-punks.

Anarcho-punks universally believe in direct action, although the way in which this manifests itself varies greatly. Despite their differences in strategy, anarcho-punks often co-operate with each other. Many anarcho-punks are pacifists and therefore believe in using non-violent means of achieving their aims. These include peaceful protest, refusal to work, squatting, economic sabotage, dumpster diving, graffiti, culture jamming, ecotage, freeganism, boycotting, civil disobedience, hacktivism and subvertising. Some anarcho-punks believe that violence or property damage is an acceptable way of achieving social change. This manifests itself as rioting, vandalism, wire cutting, assault, hunt sabotage, participation in Animal Liberation Front- or Earth Liberation Front-style activities, and in extreme cases, bombings. Many anarchists dispute the applicability of the term "violence" to describe destruction of property.

Assimilation: Canadian US Puppet Masters 'Indigenous' Energy Summit

The Indigenous Energy and Mining Summit in Niagara Falls, Ontario, July 27-29, 2011
Eagle Watch takes a look at the assimilation agenda and the puppet masters from Canada and the US

Assimilation Agenda 2011:

AFN Hosts the IISEM International Indigenous Summit on Energy and Mining


Bryan Hendry is Senior Policy Advisor, Economic Partnerships at the

AFN Assembly of First Nations.

The AFN is Canada's #1 NPO Native Puppet Organization. The AFN which

claims to be the voice of Status Indians or Indigenous in "Canada", is

actually one big dancing puppet for the colonial entities. Few

Indigenous people recognize the AFN as their spokesperson.

Hendry sent us a brochure for the International Indigenous Summit on

Energy & Mining IISEM to be held June 27-29, 2011 at the Sheraton on

the Falls Hotel in Niagara Falls, Ontario. We wondered why.

We at the Eagle Watch are acutely aware that the mineral wealth and

energy potential in northern Ontario and all across Turtle Island are

phenomenal. We hope that most of it will be left where it is unless

absolutely necessary. The freeforall of pillage and plunder to

acquire and hoard all of the Earth's riches must be identified and


Did Hendry want us to critique the event? We don't have to attend to

do that. The brochure gives plenty of hints as to what it's all


The AFN will host the IISEM spectacle with AFN National Chief Shawn

Atleo as Special Guest and Speaker. Shawn's US counterpart, President

Jefferson Keel, National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) will be

right beside him.

We asked one of our friends on the other side of the invisible line,

ie the border about Jefferson. Here's what he said, "Succinctly put,

Jefferson Keel is what Malcolm X often called a “House Negro”. That

infers a “slave that is conditioned to jump at every bark of the

“master” and whose sole reason for existence is to serve”".


Keel is Lt. Governor of the Chickasaw Nation of Oklahoma. He was in

the US military for over 20 years.

In what we term blatant deception, arrogant mendacity and slick double

speak, the IISEM promoters say, "Indigenous peoples and government

representatives from around the world will gather for a major summit

on resource development in the spirit of a shared commitment to

produce and provide long-term sustainable energy for future


Representatives will be coming from China, Brazil and Germany as well

as all the biggest of the big :-$globalist corporations:-$.

Master of BS and Fantasy Shawn Atleo is on a roll, “In Canada alone,

it is estimated that there will be $400 billion worth of mineral

resource development projects in the coming years that affect First

Nations territories. It will be critical to these projects, and to

the Canadian economy, that First Nation people and concerns be

addressed. There is also the potential for our Peoples to be the long

term providers of energy and environmental security – ensuring that

North Americans can rely upon domestic energy production that has

little or no impact upon our air and water qualities."

Shawn, are you really serious about this? You're just joking, right?

Looks more like you've been well briefed in what to say. Are you

paying any attention to what dams have and are doing to our beautiful

rivers? Are you noticing the problems caused by the oil sands

development, which by the way is totally for export??

Oblivious to our questions, Shawn continues,

“Our peoples can be full partners in development from pipelines to

power lines, from potash to precious metals. With partnership comes

full participation from revenue sharing to ownership, from employment

to environmental stewardship. We must engage early and engage often on

these projects, and this Summit is an example of this principle in


Now we know for sure he's dreaming. Does he not pay any attention to

history? It's mainly about how we've been robbed and cheated for


Never one to run out of words, Atleo says, "We look forward to

continuing our work with President Keel and the Tribal Chiefs of NCAI

on energy and the environment, justice and border issues and I look

forward to new discussions among the global Indigenous community on

how our work together can transcend borders."

Is he referring to the "Indigenous" of China, the Chinese who want to

buy up Turtle Island's resources?? Does Atleo see himself as a

transnational corporate elitist??

Guest speakers at the IISEM include: Anthony Hodge, President of the

International Council on Mining and Metals; Ernesto Sirolli, advocate

for Indigenous sustainable communities; Nunavut Deputy Premier Peter

Taptuna; Ian Anderson, CEO of Kinder Morgan Pipelines; [as yet

unnamed] Indigenous Leaders from across North America presenting best

practices from successful community energy and mining sector projects;

Margo Gray-Proctor, Chairwoman, National Centre for American Indian

Enterprise Development (NCAIED), Anthony Hodge, President,

International Mining Council on Mining and Metals; Dave Porter,

British Columbia First Nations Energy and Mining Council; Tracey

LeBeau, United States Department of Energy, Robert Reid,

McKenzie-Valley Aboriginal Pipeline Group and 80 other speakers from

around the world.

What a cozy bunch!

According to the brochure, the focus of the event will be "Sustainable

and responsible resource development". Give me a break!

This is an oxymoron with the scent of Maurice Strong and NWO all over

it. There is nothing sustainable about mining. Similarly, all

current sources of energy including the so-called green or alternative

energy suppliers are harmful to Life in some way. Somebody is making

a lot of money and it sure ain't us Indigenous.

The smirking Shawn Atleo says, "Now more than ever, with the push for

green energy, and the growing global need for natural and mineral

resources, First Nations have the opportunity to build our economies

and empower our citizens for the benefit of our communities and future


This is complete hooey. Since when have Indigenous communities ever

benefited from the destructive pillage of our land?? Nothing

substantive has changed. Only the style and fashion of the piracy.

Everyone's wearing green this year.

First of all, there is no need to continue digging up all the minerals

in Mother Earth. Most minerals such as uranium, titanium, iron, tin,

copper etc. go to the military for the purpose of killing and

controlling people. For consumer uses, we could be recycling more and

using less. You don't need gold or diamond jewellery. You don't need

those cellphones, etc. that require rare earth metals for their

manufacture. We don't really even need these damned computers.

"First Nations" people will not benefit anymore than the average

person who struggles to make a living in a world where the wealth

becomes more and more concentrated into the hands of a tiny elite.

Pollution from mining, nuclear reactors, deforestation, etc. are

killing people and destroying Life everywhere on the planet.

This summit is being held at a posh hotel in Niagara Falls Ontario.

Most of us could not afford to go. A room at the hotel costs $159 per

night. Here are the fees for the conference:

$300 First Nation/Indigenous Delegate Registration Fee ($400 AFTER MAY 16, 2011)

$500 Corporate/Government Official Delegate Registration Fee ($600

AFTER MAY 16, 2011)

$30 Students with valid student identification ($30 AFTER MAY 16, 2011)

Complimentary - Elders . Complimentary - Veterans . Complimentary – Media

A lot of booze will likely be flying around to disarm and discredit

Indigenous participants. A trade fair will sell all kinds of mining

and energy products. The rental fee for a booth is $1,000.

Who Pays the Piper Calls the Tune

There's a lot of money behind this intensive psychological warfare.

If they speak loud enough and say it often enough, somebody is going

to believe them. Why do we keep falling for their con jobs on us??

Take a careful look at this list of Event Sponsors: INAC Indian and

Northern Affairs Canada, 3M, UnionGas, PDAC Prospectors and Developers

Association of Canada, GRE, Hydro One, the Mining Association of

Canada, Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corporation and First Air.

3M is in there like a dirty designer $shirt$ with their tapes and

films holding it all together. In 2009, 3M set up 3M Renewable Energy

Division to sell "solar energy, wind energy, geothermal and biofuel

product solutions such as films, tapes, coatings, encapsulants,

sealants and adhesives..." 3M has special "polyurethane wind tapes"

for wind turbine blades and films for solar panels, "with added

properties for ultraviolet stability, low flammability and self


3M is a member of CADSI the Canadian Association of Defense and

Security Industries who sponsor an annual warshow in Ottawa called

CANSEC. 3M is currently being sued by the UK government. (See more in

the endnotes.)

Something about this "heritage fund" Northern Ontario Heritage Fund

Corporation set our red flags fluttering. There are heritage funds

all over the world including one called, the Global Heritage Fund.

They're apparently about heritage sites. So why is the NOHFC actually

about pillage and plunder aka "resource development" and destruction

of heritage??? It appears to be a conduit for funding to bedazzle us

with trinkets and cheap rhetoric.

We googled the name of the IISEM event and got over 5,000 hits, some

300 with Maurice Strong's name. This includes the Canadian Energy

Council, part of the World Energy Council which hosts events like the

World Energy Congress held in Montreal in September 2010.

The Energy Council chooses a Canadian Energy Person of the Year. For

2010, it was Stephen G. Snyder, President and CEO of TransAlta

Corporation. TransAlta is grabbing funding for big "green" projects

like the wind turbines at Melancthon, Ontario north of 6Nations Grand

River Territory and Wolfe Island where the biggest industrial wind

installation in Canada is killing untold numbers of Bald Eagles and

other endangered species of birds.

The IISEM next week will host tours of the region to places like the

Seneca Casino where you can blow a few more bucks and get drunk all

over again. Rumour has it that everyone will think they're at the G20

Summit where they'll be inducted into the Global Elite for World


This "summit" is yet another expeditionary campaign in psychological

warfare. The elitists know we are onto them. They think they can

beguile and seduce us into their ways by making shining poster

children out of a handful of our people. They know many of our

communities in dire straits are desperately impoverished and willing

to try the colonial way one more time. Flogging a dead horse will

never produce any horse power.

Some people say we have to work with the big players. There's a big

difference between working "with" someone and working "for" them. It

is an Indigenous custom to turn our backs on things we know are wrong.

If for some reason, you plan to attend the IISEM, please let us know

how it went. We can be quite sure now that they won't be letting us

in on a complimentary media pass!


We welcome your feedback! Forward, post and consider printing for

your cyberphobic friends and relatives.

NEWS RELEASE: International Indigenous Energy and Mining Summit will

chart new course for relationships, partnerships with industry and


Canada NewsWire

OTTAWA, June 20, 2011 /CNW/ – Next week, Indigenous peoples and

government representatives from around the world will gather for a

major summit on resource development in the spirit of a shared

commitment to produce and provide long-term sustainable energy for

future generations.

“Consistent with First Nations rights and our responsibilities as

stewards of the land, we will begin to chart a new Indigenous economic

relationship where First Nations can and will take the lead to build

our own economies and contribute to Canada’s economy in ways that

respect the environment and provide a sustainable future for all

Canadians,” said Assembly of First Nations (AFN) National Chief Shawn

A-in-chut Atleo, who will co-chair the Summit with Jefferson Keel,

President of the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI).

“We look forward to continuing our work with President Keel and the

Tribal Chiefs of NCAI on energy and the environment, justice and

border issues and I look forward to new discussions among the global

Indigenous community on how our work together can transcend borders.”

The International Indigenous Energy and Mining Summit taking place in

Niagara Falls June 27-29 will bring together key representatives from

the global Indigenous community and governments. Representatives from

the United States, China, Brazil, Germany and the private and public

sectors will come together to discuss best practices, partnership

opportunities, and ultimately establish a Virtual Institute of First

Nation Energy and Mining. Indigenous delegates and representatives

from Brazil to Nunavut will re-affirm their rights to participate in

natural resource development.

“In Canada alone, it is estimated that there will $400 billion worth

of mineral resource development projects in the coming years that

affect First Nations territories. It will be critical to these

projects, and to the Canadian economy, that First Nation people and

concerns be addressed,” said National Chief Atleo. “There is also the

potential for our Peoples to be the long term providers of energy and

environmental security – ensuring that North Americans can rely upon

domestic energy production that has little or no impact upon our air

Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) Chief’s gather in Timmins to discuss

resources – by Kate McLaren (The Daily Press, the city of Timmins

newspaper. Contact the writer at

“The government has a responsibility to protect First Nations people,

and it’s their duty to consult. That duty should not be given to the

industries themselves, unless it’s agreed upon through talks between

First Nations people and government officials.” (Raymond Ferris –

Ring of Fire co-ordinator for Matawa First Nation)

As First Nation chiefs from 49 Nishnawbe Aski Nation (NAN) communities

gather this week for the 2011 Winter Chiefs Assembly, the theme of the

conference — Our Land, Our Resources — reflects current frustrations

in First Nations communities.

“The discussions are centred around resource development, as it

applies to both the written and spirited intent of Treaty 9,” said NAN

Grand Chief Stan Beardy. “A hundred years ago, we signed a treaty that

gave us peaceful and shared land, and said we would share in any

wealth generated from that land... We’d like the government to be more

respectful of those rights...The government in some cases likes to

take shortcuts, but this leads to potential infringement on our Treaty

rights...There has to be accommodation. At the end of the day, we have

to make certain that the government is aware of their legal


He said the government’s implementation of the Indian Act has

infringed on their Aboriginal rights.

“The Indian Act is a document that defines who we are, what we can do,

and what we can’t do. An important thing to remember is we never gave

up the right to govern ourselves.”

He said because Treaty 9 was developed so long ago, today, it’s based

in large part on oral history.

“That oral history is still relevant today,” said Beardy.

At the centre of much of the resource debate is the development of the

Ring of Fire deposit in the Far North.

Raymond Ferris is the Ring of Fire co-ordinator for Matawa First

Nation, and said the responsibility for initial consultation lies with

the federal and provincial governments, and not with the industries

themselves. He said with project descriptions being developed for

various Ring of Fire plans, these discussions need to take place

sooner than later.

“Before permits are issued, it’s the government’s responsibility to

consult. We have too much to lose not to be able to actively

participate. We’ve learned lessons from other areas who have lost

their culture, their language and their environments.”

Replacement of Halon with 3M(tm) Novec(tm) 1230 for Crew Compartment

Protection System


To evaluate the effectiveness of Novec(tm) 1230 as a "drop-in"

replacement for halon in an existing crew compartment fire protection



The Canadian Department of National Defence is seeking a more

environmentally friendly replacement for halon to use with its crew

compartment fire protection systems in armoured vehicles. The most

cost-effective solution would use an agent that could be dropped into

an existing system. Novec(tm) 1230 has been considered as such a

replacement, but because its boiling point is much higher than that of

other halocarbons, conventional nozzles may not fully vaporize it,

reducing its effectiveness. Further work is therefore needed to find

means to deliver Novec(tm) 1230 as a vapour and to test the

effectiveness of this solution in a crew compartment fire.

Statement of Work

•Conducted experiments that simulated an explosion in a Coyote light

armoured vehicle crew compartment caused by fuel spray, in order to

evaluate the effectiveness of various commercially available nozzles

using Novec(tm) 1230.

•Tested a new explosion suppression system that used a gas generator

to discharge Novec 1230 by setting off a deflagration/explosion in a

mock-up vehicle crew compartment.

•Measured discharge and explosion extinguishment times, compartment

temperatures, thermal radiation levels and acid gas concentrations.


A report was delivered in March 2006, which summarized these

experiments and showed that available nozzles did not cause Novec1230

to fully vaporize when discharged during an explosion. A final report

was delivered to the client, which showed that a system using a gas

generator to discharge Novec 1230 would be effective as part of a crew

compartment fire protection system.

20 June 2011 [MRSA
USA] UK government takes 3M to court in

£41M claim over MRSA diagnostic

Business reporting

The multinational company is accused of failing to market a device

developed by the UK Ministry of Defence for diagnosing infections of

the superbug, going against the terms agreed when 3M acquired the


The UK government and the private investment group Porton Capital are

accusing the US multinational 3M of breaching its obligation to bring

a potentially life-saving medical device invented by the Ministry of

Defence to market, in a case that opened at the High Court in London

last Friday (17 June).

The case centres around BacLite, a technology for detecting the

hospital-acquired infection MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus

aureus) which was acquired by 3M from investors including Porton and

the UK government in February 2007. The terms of the sale required 3M

to actively market and diligently seek regulatory approval for BacLite

and to pay the investors one hundred per cent of BacLite’s 2009 sales,

up to a limit of £41million.

The opening statement set out the decision by 3M to effectively

terminate development of BacLite December 2008. The UK government is

now asking the High Court to award the full £41 million that would

have been accrued had 3M met its obligations.

The court heard that BacLite obtained EU regulatory approval by 2005,

demonstrating 95 per cent reliability, and quickly penetrated the

diagnostics market in the UK. The device offered MRSA detection that

was faster than traditional culture methods but cheaper than molecular


Upon acquiring BacLite in February 2007, 3M axed the UK sales team

that had been in place since May 2005, but did not reassign a new team

until September 2007. By May 2008, 3M had functionally ceased its

marketing efforts in Europe, the court heard.

The case continues at the High Court in London.

Northern Ontario Heritage FundNorthern Ontario Heritage Fund

Corporation (NOHFC) Holds Board Meeting In Thunder Bay

by Scott A. Sumner

Thunder Bay was the site of a full board meeting of the Northern

Ontario Heritage Board recetly where millions of dollars are awarded

to up and coming companies.

“We meet every six weeks all across the North. This is Thunder Bay’s

turn to have the Northern Ontario Heritage meeting here. Our largest

award today is the partnership with LU and a new company called

Warnex, the former Molecular World. They are doing some significant

work in DNA and commercializing a product that has world wide

interest,” said Minister Michael Gravelle.

“We also announced 5 young entrepreneurs in Thunder Bay whom without

the benefit would probably not be able to open their businesses.

When you bundle it all together it is a lot of job creation. The

results are clear, thousands of jobs are being created as a result of

the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund. There is a very. very fair and

straight forward application process. The applicant will come

forward, put an application and then it goes to a sub committee who

look at it before going to the board that has 14 or 15 members who

all vote on the project. I am proud that the fund can move relatively

quickly. That can be a frustration in the private sector. We are

nimble and creative looking at projects. The process has to be

rigorous but fair and nimble.”

“ We have a variety of companies today and it is about job

creation. We are we seeing more of companies related to the

technology movement. Thunder Bay is becoming a world leader in terms

of technology. They must have a good business plan and their own

support as well. What excites me is seeing the different types of

businesses in Northern Ontario as a result of the NOHFC that are

moving forward and providing a transformed and new economy in

Northern Ontario.”

It was a really easy process. We started our careers here as a junior

associate for a few years at another office. Most people have $150,000

to $175,000 spent at school so the program really helps. We are doing

very well now. The city has been good to us. Our office is at a great

location. It is really easy access on Memorial which become Algoma. We

are with other professionals. The money has allowed us to start from

scratch and pay for basic expenses. We shopped local and have hired 1

staff and will hire another soon as well as attracting a new


“ The NOHFC is one of our governments key tools in developing the

North. I am proud of the work we have done to support private sector

growth. Since 2003 we have 472 million dollars,” said Bill Mauro,

MPP.“ This is a program we are very proud of creating jobs in the

program with $80 million a year up from $60 million. We have the world

class OPP Centre and now the DNA labs which can collaborate. We are

happy about the diversification of the high technology market in

Thunder Bay.”

"In truth, the ultimate point of rest and happiness for [the Indians]

is to let our settlements and theirs meet and blend together, to

intermix and become one people, incorporating themselves with us as

citizens of the U.S. This is what the natural progress of things will

of course bring on, and it will be better to promote than retard it.

Surely it will be better for them to be identified with us and

preserved in the occupation of their lands, than be exposed to the

many casualties which may endanger them while a separate people.

"[To] incorporate with us as citizens of the United States... is

certainly the termination of their history most happy for themselves;

but in the whole course of this it is essential to cultivate their

love. As to their fear, we presume that our strength and their

weakness is now so visible that they must see we have only to shut our

hand to crush them, and that all our liberalities to them proceed from

motives of pure humanity only."

Cobell Settlement: Letter of Objections

United States District Court

Class action Settlement Agreement

Cobell vs Salazar, Secretary of Interior

Re: Civil Action No. 1:96cv01285 – OBJECTIONS

Objection I

On behalf of all Peoples (Indians/Tribal Members) of all the Nations (the Tribes now of the United States) I object to and oppose the entire document as being unconstitutional in its format, and do vehemently object to the centuries of breeched trusts and non compliance of the rules, regulations and promises included within each of the treaties made between each Nation (Tribe) and the United States, that either have not been dealt with or have been ignored even when presented and filed with the federal court of the United States, therefore, believe this action, Cobell vs Salazar, cannot legally be accepted without first addressing these international issues.

In the event this objection is ignored (as is recounted historically) I then wish that the following objections be heard and taken into account.

Objection II Attorney’s Fees

All fees, costs and expenses for Class Counsel and Class Representatives including but not limited to any and all other fees and costs arising from the continued findings and filings in relation to this case should be paid from a fund supplied and paid into by an entity of the Federal Government of the United States and separated from funds allocated to IIM Accounts in this “3.4 Billion Dollar Trust Settlement”. The funds break down into a drop in the bucket, a one-time payment of $1,000. per Historical Class account, in comparison to a century of gross breeches of trust by the United States against the Peoples (Indians) of the Nations (Tribes) with whom treaties were made, and that the 3.4 billion dollars be paid in its entirety to each IIM Account, as it is a national insult that the already below poverty level Peoples (Indians) should bear the costs for the recovery of the aforementioned breeched trusts while, again, the lawyers, council and representatives are paid two hundred twenty-three million dollars, knowing that $1000.00-2500.00 cannot possibly help any family/person who has endured a lifetime of poverty.


This one time settlement agreement (3.4 billion dollars resulting in an actual payment of only $1000.00 to each IIM (Historical Class) account, and up to 223 million dollars to the attorneys and others) SHOULD NOT “release, waive, and forever discharge the United States, any department, agency or establishment, and any officers, employees or successors of the United States (defendants), as well as any contractor, including any Tribal contractor (collectively the “releasees”) from obligation to perform a historical accounting and forever be barred and precluded from prosecuting any and all claims and/or causes of action for any and all historical accounting claims, however characterized whether under common law, at equity or by statute”. The above mentioned monies in no way constitute a settlement of this magnitude while the constitutionality of the settlement is questionable and should not be accepted without the United States first acknowledging and enforcing each and every one of the treaties previously made between each of the Nations (Tribes) and itself.

OBJECTION IV Land Consolidation

“Fractionated Lands” is a Tribal issue and should does not have any context or relevance to this settlement, Cobell vs Salazar. Tribal lands have been greatly diminished through the aforementioned breeched trusts and the failure of the United States to uphold the current treaties.

O'odham to Maricopa County: No South Mountain Freeway

A message to Maricopa County Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox

Over a dozen people took to the Maricopa Board of Supervisors office to call out Supervisor Mary Rose Wilcox for her support of the loop 202 freeway extension. Below is the text handed out:


Mary Rose Wilcox, despite your history of supporting economic projects that have uprooted working class and poor people from their land and lives (Bank One Ballpark), you continue to posit yourself as some champion of immigrant and worker rights. You may believe your presence at the immigrant marches and rallies, your purported solidarity with the down trodden and oppressed, makes you a rare breed in Maricopa County and perhaps this gains you some credibility in the movement.

“An injury to one is an injury to all,” is the essence of solidarity in action. For we are pro-migrant, and in our support of immigrants who have been dispossessed by predatory American trade policies, we recognize that it is those trade policies, in particular NAFTA, that are the enemy of all workers in North America. What, then, is solidarity when you support all of these conditions that line the pockets of corporations, while keeping indigenous people, workers, and immigrants down?

It is your involvement in the Arizona-Mexico Commission that signals your complicity with the exploitation caused by neo-liberal trade that continues to impact people’s lives in Mexico by dispossessing them and keeping wages in the toilet, forcing the poorest to migrate for survival. This is not solidarity; it is rank political opportunism. But hypocrisy is like breathing to politicians. Another of the consequences of increased trade between Arizona and Mexico are the proposed freeways that would devastate the land and air, in particular the proposed Loop 202 freeway extension through the Gila River Indian Community (Akimel O’odham land). Surely, you’re aware that the tribe has opposed the freeway extension, as both District 6 in Gila River, and the tribe as a whole has previously opposed any new freeway, so it should be no surprise that there continues to be opposition.

You and your staff should take plenty of time to read and understand why O’odham people are fighting for their community health and their cultural survival through the defense of their sacred mountain, and why others are supporting this fight. Below is a link to an information resource for freeway opposition. We do not speak for these groups, nor do we act on anyone’s behalf but our own. We are simply -People Against Freeways-


It’s clear that the Phoenix metro area does not need a new freeway. If anything, we need less freeways. As mile after mile of asphalt and concrete is poured, set, and dried, the thermometer continues to rise. We can all feel the heat these days.

Frontera NorteSur: El Grito de El Paso (The Cry of El Paso)

June 16, 2011

Editor’s Note: The second of two articles on the Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity that culminated in Ciudad Juarez and El Paso last weekend.

El Grito de El Paso (The Cry of El Paso)

Running for Albuquerque's murdered women

By Frontera NorteSur
On Memorial Day, Albuquerque resident Michael Brown embarked on a run of more than 260-miles to the US-Mexico border.

The long-distance runner began his marathon at the spot where the bodies of 11 murdered women were found on Albuquerque’s West Mesa back in February 2009. Headed south, the US Navy veteran stopped at a grave site to honor his fallen military brethren and then visited the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park in Truth or Consequences, NM, a popular weekend getaway located about half-way between Albuquerque and El Paso.

In an interview with Frontera NorteSur, Brown said that a big purpose of his nearly two-week long trip was to raise awareness of youth violence as well as the failure of the juvenile justice system to deliver “real healing” and successfully reintegrate offenders back into the community. Brown’s concerns transcended national boundaries.

On Saturday, June 11, he stood with hundreds of other people in El Paso’s downtown plaza to take a stand against the violence flowing from the so-called drug war in neighboring Ciudad Juarez and beyond.

“That in fact does impact our families in New Mexico. Many of them cannot cross the border as easily to see their familia and vice-versa,” Brown said. “Everyone in southern New Mexico seems to know someone in Mexico that has been affected directly by the violence.”

Brown and many others were on hand to welcome members of the Caravan for Peace with Justice and Dignity that traveled through Mexico last week gathering victims’ testimonies and input for a citizen pact that demands an end to militarization of the drug war, a halt to criminal impunity, an emergency response to the youth crisis and a much greater dose of democracy.

Organized by Justice without Borders and other US groups, the El Paso event featured caravan organizer and Mexican poet Javier Sicilia and other speakers. In addition to the preliminary, six-point pact developed by Sicilia and other Mexican activists, the US groups agreed to three additional demands centered on this country’s relationship with Mexico.

The three points included justice and protection for violence victims, immediate protection and asylum for Mexican refugees and an end to the Merida

Initiative, the US-Mexico government agreement that provides US military hardware, training and intelligence to Mexican security forces widely accused of human rights abuses.

Ruben Garcia, director of the Annunciation House migrant shelter in El Paso, charged that Merida monies are being used to “suffocate the life of an entire country.”

From the podium, the names of local, regional and national US groups subscribing to the pact were read off to the crowd. The Border Network for Human Rights, Colonias Development Council, MECHA, Museo Urbano, and Miners without Borders were among the many adherents to the pact.

Defending Mexican refugees has emerged as a big issue in El Paso and other places. At the June 11 rally, El Paso immigration attorney Carlos Spector announced that Ciudad Juarez activist Cipriana Jurado’s petition for political asylum in the US was finally granted by a judge the previous day. The decision, Spector contended, represented an admission by the US government that the Mexican army is the “villain of the movie.”

A well-known labor, environmental and women’s rights activist, Jurado fled her home last year after helping file human rights complaints against the army and getting threats. A close associate of Jurado’s, Josefina Reyes, was murdered last year. Now a political exile, Jurado addressed the rally.

“We’re going to continue the struggle because we have that commitment,” Jurado said, running down the names of other Ciudad Juarez activists who have been murdered or forced to leave town like herself.

The former maquiladora worker then led the crowd in chants demanding the withdrawal of the Mexican army from Ciudad Juarez’s streets.

According to Spector, a committee of Mexicans-in-Exile will be unveiled in the coming days.

Like the caravan’s rallies in Ciudad Juarez and other Mexican cities, the El Paso event drew victims’ relatives with personal stories to share.

“Cesar Rico is Kidnapped.” Creel Asks for Justice,” read a pair of placards carried by a small group originally from the small mountain town of Creel, Chihuahua. Luz Rico, aunt of the kidnapped man, said the family still has no word of her nephew’s fate even after Mexican President Felipe Calderon was personally told of the case and the office of Chihuahua Governor Cesar Duarte likewise informed.

Since Cesar Rico’s November 2010 kidnapping, two members of the family of taxi drivers and car sellers have been murdered, according to Luz Rico and other relatives accompanying her. Irma Ramos, an in-law who was known for reporting suspicious activities to the Mexican army, was among the victims, they added.

“There is a lot of insecurity in Creel,” Rico said. “Kidnappings, death, all of that. It is very bad. They should pay attention to this town.” In 2008, Creel briefly made the news after 13 people-including an infant-were murdered in an attack on a party.

A once-quiet jumping-off point for the famed Copper Canyon tourist circuit, Creel and its environs have been selected by the Mexican government as the focal point for major tourist development.

Historically, the mountainous zone has been an important producer of marijuana and opium poppies. Clandestine air strips, drug shipment routes and illegal logging all add to the strategic value of the region.

To varying degrees, Creel, Ciudad Juarez, El Paso and Albuquerque all constitute distinct yet connected “plazas” in a hyper-charged, transnational economy of illicit products, fast money, corruption, violence and addiction. In this casino-like world of high stakes gamblers, unlimited riches and power are the elusive wins and premature death the more likely outcome.

For nearly a century, Mexican-produced smack has cultivated a heroin culture in New Mexico’s largest city. Typically, the problem is swept under the rug by polite society but a recent surge in addictions and overdose deaths of Albuquerque teens attending the city’s best public schools has generated a blast of media coverage.

A youth advocate, Michael Brown works in training and professional development for the New Mexico Forum for Youth in Community. As part of his job, the former navy man visits young people in a substance abuse treatment center. Recently, he encountered an 8-year-old girl and a 9-year-old boy who became addicted to heroin after finding the drug left out in the open by adults “responsible” for their care.

“It just completely broke my heart,” Brown said.

Albuquerque’s heroin dreams and nightmares are just one piece of a larger youth crisis that’s also readily event in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and, indeed, across the globe.

Everywhere youth unemployment is rampant, and in the Duke City it’s common to find scores of young people applying for a low-paid job cleaning tables or flipping burgers. Violence connected to gang, dating and domestic situations are constants. Nobody has been arrested for the murders of the young women found on the West Mesa, and similar to the impunity shrouding the disappeared of Ciudad Juarez, others remain missing with no word of their whereabouts.

Earlier this month, a young man, was shot and killed in front of other teens at a house party where a fight with gang overtones shattered the night.

“All this percolates and really becomes an epidemic in our society,” Brown said. “We really want to talk about the fact that our young people are our future. We’re late.”

For the military veteran, the solutions to cross-border violence will come from below, from the grassroots, where people should be pushing politicians instead of the other way around. “We talk about military resolve. I think we need community resolve,” Brown asserted.

The Albuquerque activist’s prescriptions find a lot of common ground with the Caravan for Peace and Justice with Dignity and its citizen pact, which stresses collective action on violence, the youth crisis and the renewal of civil society.

In El Paso, caravan co-organizer Julian LeBaron of Chihuahua spoke about the emergence of a “new people” rising up to sow dignity, honor and pride.” And in the case of his own country, LeBaron said the time for change was urgent:

“Mexico today trembles from the threat of violence. As a people, we’ve accepted this as a way of life but violence is not a way of life, it is a way of death. Our children hide like animals and don’t experience the beauty and abundance of our land and our traditions. Many of our brothers and sisters are ashamed of being Mexicans, and many flee their own country out of fear. The rest of the world watches and waits like vultures hovering over the corpse of a legendary beast. This has to stop. It is time.”
