It’s a shocking state of affairs. I’ve had strong adverse views on the use of uranium for as long as I can remember. In my home state of South Australia, the government is trying to open a nuclear waste dump on Traditional lands in the North of the State despite community protests. Greed must not succeed!
Grand Canyon, AZ — On October 13, 2016, Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) issued three controversial air quality permits for uranium mines near the Grand Canyon. The uranium mining will desecrate sacred sites and further contaminate communities that have already been plagued by decades of toxic abandoned uranium mines.
“Mother Earth is very precious, every living thing depends on her,” said Cameron Chapter president Milton Tso, “Uranium belongs to our mother, it belongs to her and that’s where it should stay. You’re going to have a battle, I guarantee that you’re going to have a battle from me and from everybody else if this stuff starts going towards our way.”
“We are very upset that ADEQ approved the air quality permits.” stated Havasupai council member Carletta Tilousi, “Even though we stood firm on protecting the lands and sacred areas, again…

As expected, it’s dirty tricks time. Time to stand strong against the enemy.
The Dakota pipeline protests have become the frontline representation of the critical struggle against a completely out of control totalitarian power structure. Those in power cannot afford to allow this justifiable protest to continue or succeed. Geoengineering/weather warfare has now been added to the already long list of criminal assaults that have been hurled at the peaceful pipeline protesters. In the coming days and weeks, weather warfare will likely be the most deadly and effective weapon that the power structure will wield against the pieceful Dakota pipeling protesters.

Climate engineering and the use of toxic chemical ice nucleation elements are the reason a record early season snow has just occurred in the exact region of the protests (named winter storm “Blanche”). Weather warfare has long since been a

Australians are concerned about this situation also. We are in this together.
You can follow my brother Mike’s reports on their trip to the Sacred Stone Standing Rock encampment and protest in North Dakota here.
And if you are in Chicago you can join us at the Daley Center Plaza at 4PM Friday to support the protesters and their call to stop the Dakota Access Pipeline.
Or you can send needed supplies to the encampment.
Surrounded by police and private security guards, over 4,000 people must be housed, fed and kept warm in tents.
A wish list has been set up on Amazon for those wishing to send physical supplies.
Thank you so much for supporting our fight to save the water! You can find a list of other supplies we may need at http://sacredstonecamp.org/supply-list/

In the back of the Apple Store in Berkeley, California, at the end of the bar where those “geniuses” repair iPhones and MacBooks, is a placard with this warning: “If you carry or use your phone in …
Please support those who are providing safer alternatives in a toxic world.
Why do we say we want to change the textile industry? Why do we say we want to produce fabrics in ways that are non-toxic, ethical and sustainable? What could be so bad about the fabrics we live with?
The textile industry is enormous, and because of its size its impacts are profound. It uses a lot of three ingredients:
Water was not included in the 1947 UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights because at the time it wasn’t perceived as having a human rights dimension. Yet today, corporate interests are controlling water, and what is known as the global water justice movement is working hard to ensure the right to water as a basic human right.(1) Our global supply of fresh water is diminishing – 2/3 of the world’s population is projected to face water scarcity by 2025, according to the UN. Our global water consumption…
