Red Alert to the Commons!


As SuperSkyWoman, I receive daily information updates:

From Shannon Francis reporting on defending The Commons, Here I excerpt:

RED ALERT!! Black Mesa/Big Mountain livestock impoundments happening now!! Ahe'hee!! Shannon

RED ALERT!    Black Mesa families livestock have been witnessed getting hauled away!  Livestock is Life! It is peoples livelihood. Most of the people living on Black Mesa are elderly. This is extremely upsetting. After discussion with relatives & a longtime supporter, we are questioning how effective it is to have people throughout the support network contacting the US-backed Hopi Tribe. It would probably be good to let them know we are watching them - but may be best to go above them. Perhaps the BIA (Bureau of Indian Affairs) and Navajo Nation as well.   
 **Let's draft a letter of talking points and let them know that this is unacceptable!!!**
 The stated reason that the horses & sheep get hauled away is damage to the land. Well take into consideration the effects that Peabody Coal/Energy has- especially considering all the millions of gallons of water they drew down, causing the whole Ancient aquifer to have what is called 'the draw-down effect', collapsing whole mesas and affecting the vegetation!! If they are so worried about the land then shut down Peabody Coal TAKE DOWN THE FENCELINES - which cuts off the livestock grazing areas and yes, it does have some impact---but nothing compared to what Peabody has done!
 Additionally it was pointed out that the Hopi Rangers used quads to round up the animals - quads tear up the desert  landscape better than any animals could!    Know that this is harassment & is a continuation of the genocidal policies of pushing indigenous families off their homelands!
      Lastly, remember to please be respectful when calling and writing these agencies because it is the families that have to deal with the repercussions of our actions.

Please stay on alert.  We have contacted the office of Land Range Management; if they do not respond by tomorrow, we will ask you to flood their lines and say that the elders need their animals to survive and these confiscations are WRONG, that we are watching, and that we see this ongoing harassment as part of cultural genocide. Let's make sure they don't get away with this.  
We're collecting funds to pay for livestock

reclamation. We know it will be at least $500.

The amount increases daily.”  


When I read this Alert as SuperSkyWoman, I know

I am fighting the same genocide that has not

relented and am prepared for all the world’s

genocides including the one my parents fled from

in Nazi Germany. These oppressions are not

hidden from me, they lie under the top layer of my

skin always erupting and I have learned healing

methods to clear deeply, and stay on top of new healing methods that want to be used as the old ones, like antibiotics, become resistant. I am no afraid to be on the lookout for what tries to disable me nor what I can heal myself with. If the earth can be ravaged, I can see it and heal.

What started with a Clearing of the Commons now comes to this:

Commons DESTRUCTION repeats itself:

Grace Davie, Op-Ed: (Nation of Change) “As a participant-observer who wants the Occupy movement to flourish, this strikes me as an appropriate moment to look back at another social movement that promoted consultation and consensus-building. In the 1980s, South Africa’s United Democratic Front (UDF) helped to end apartheid by empowering existing community-based organizations and developing the leadership capacities of local leaders, some of whom had little or no prior experience as activists. Notably, the UDF inspired and mobilized diverse affiliates without trying to impose one political framework upon them.”

And our Commons has come to this:

“Almost simultaneously with the publication of this article in The Nation, the Via Campesina reported the purchase of 500,000 shares of Monsanto, for more than $23 million by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which with this action completed the outing of the mask of "philanthropy." Another association that is not surprising.

It is a marriage between the two most brutal monopolies in the history of industrialism: Bill Gates controls more than 90 percent of the market share of proprietary computing and Monsanto about 90 percent of the global transgenic seed market and most global commercial seed. There does not exist in any other industrial sector monopolies so vast, whose very existence is a negation of the vaunted principle of "market competition" of capitalism. Both Gates and Monsanto are very aggressive in defending their ill-gotten monopolies.”
