2008-06-26 - URGENT! PLEASE ACT NOW! ienearth.org - Moving Across Pennsylvaniaienonlinenews@igc.org News Letter Online from Indigenous Environmental Network copy link location below into browser https://www.mynewsletterbuilder.com/tools/subscription.php?username=ienearth&send_id=219552427&l=s&newsletter_id=1409697645 URGENT! PLEASE ACT NOW! JULY 7, 2008 DEADLINE FOR COMMENTS Please Forward Widely to Everyone You Know! On May 23, 2008 the Office Of Surface Mining (OSM) opened a 45 day public comment period concerning the proposed Black Mesa Project: Peabody Coal Company's massive coal-mining expansion plans on the sacred ancestral homelands of the Dine' (Navajo) & Hopi peoples of Black Mesa, AZ. Peabody Coal's plans would devastate whole communities & ecosystems and de-stabilize our planet's climate for their own personal gain. Your voices are urgently needed before the comment period closes July 7, 2008! Big Mountain, Black Mesa Elder Faces Threat of her Ceremonial Lodge/Home being dismantled while Peabody Coal Company is pushing their massive coal-mining expansion plans on the sacred ancestral homelands of the Dine' (Navajo) & Hopi peoples of Black Mesa, AZ. Your voices are urgently needed before the deadline! PEABODY COAL COMPANY'S PLANS UNDERMINES PLANETARY LIFE SUPPORT SYSTEMS BY ACCELERATING ECOLOGICAL & CULTURAL COLLAPSE! We cannot allow a small cartel of energy corporations and their financial backers to knowingly de-stabilize our planet's climate and devastate whole communities & ecosystems for their own personal gain. This may turn out to be the most devastating crime ever perpetrated against humanity, the planet and future generations. We are at a critical juncture. Indigenous and land-based people globally have maintained the understanding that our collective survival is deeply dependent on our relationship to the Earth. Please, act now in support of the communities on the front lines of resistance! The Black Mesa Project Environmental Impact Statement (BMP-EIS) outlines harmful impacts to every level of the ecological and cultural systems on Black Mesa and has global repercussions. If we don't stop these plans, Peabody will have the green light to: * Lock in mining rights until the coal runs out or until 2025! * Substantially accelerate global warming and cause an ecological meltdown. * Destroy thousands of acres of canyon lands, vanishing indigenous vegetation and shrines or burials. * Blast the land for coal & deplete air quality, increasing the health risk of the local residents and their livestock. * Deplete an underground source of water that residents depend on to survive by pumping massive amounts of water. * Uproot & relocate families from their ancestral homelands where the coal mining expansion are. * Sacrifice human dignity and planetary health for elite profit! Peabody would cause many more problems than what is reflected here. HERE'S HOW TO SEND YOUR COMMENTS: You can send as many comments as you want on different issues, as long is it's before the deadline on July 7, 2008. Your comments must directly address components of the EIS. Alternative C, (No Action), is our preferred alternative. Alternative B is Peabody Coal's preferred alternative. Find a sample letter here or write your own. At the top of your letter or in the subject line of your e-mail message, indicate: "BMP Draft EIS Comments.'' Include your name and return address in your letter or e-mail message.

It is important to learn about them because companies hoping to make millions of dollars are promoting these technologies to Native Nations and communities across the U.S. and the world, falsely claiming they can get rid of all types of waste with no pollution while generating �renewable energy.� Sound too good to be true? In the late 1980�s and early 1990�s, Indigenous lands were targeted by companies trying to build giant incinerators and dumps that would burn or dump toxic waste, garbage, medical waste and nuclear waste shipped in from far and wide. Companies and the United States government tried to exploit tribal sovereignty and the need for economic development and offered millions of dollars to any tribe that would allow their lands to be turned into toxic dumping grounds for other peoples� waste. Indigenous people learned the truth and defeated almost every proposal for large incinerators and dumps, in large part due to the formation and efforts of the Indigenous Environmental Network. 6/16/08 Breaking News: Victory! Red Bluff Residents & Greenaction Defeat InEnTec�s Proposed Plasma Arc Incinerator in Disguise! Read victory press release! Read background information and see news coverage. The Indigenous Environmental Network is working with Greenaction for Health and Environmental Justice and the Global Alliance for Incinerator Alternatives to stop incinerators in disguise and to promote truly renewable energy and zero waste programs. Please keep your eyes and ears open and alert us if you learn about incinerators in disguise being promoted in your area. Click here to read the rest of this article.

The Southern Route just passed through Asheville, NC and is now in Durham, NC. The Northern Route walkers passed through Pittsburgh, PA and are now on their way from Bedford to Carlisle, PA. Looks like everyone is right on schedule for their arrival in DC on July 11th. While in DC from July 11-16, the walkers from both routes will be delivering the Longest Walk Manifesto to Senators and Congressmen. It is being written as the walks cross the United States. In each community visited the participants will be listening to the needs and concerns of indigenous communities. The Longest Walk II commemorates the 30th anniversary of the first Walk in 1978 that helped to bring some positive change to the lives and freedoms of indigenous people in the United States and was instrumental in the ratification of the American Indian Religious Freedom Act.

Tornado damages hog farm Yankton Sioux prophecy fulfilled MARTY, S.D. - Yankton Sioux tribal members credited divine intercession for a tornado that struck a large-scale hog farm that's being constructed on the reservation in defiance of a tribal court exclusion order. The storm, which hit the building site June 5 at about 5:30 p.m., tore out a fence, downed electrical poles and wiring, scattered 4-foot-long concrete blocks and demolished small construction-related buildings, among other damage. ''The tornado was a sign for the builders to stop,'' said Izzy Zephier, an Ihanktowan Dakota elder who is widely known for his prophesies. ''On the second day of construction, the Grandfathers spoke to us in a ceremony and told us that a wind would blow away the farm.'' Faith Spotted Eagle, Ihanktowan Dakota cultural resources expert and therapist, agreed with Zephier, calling the storm a warning that must be heeded. Click here to read the rest of the article. ABC: Please Tell The Truth - Tar Sand and Oil Shale Production Are NOT The Answer On June 16th, Good Morning America aired "The Black Gold Rush" Investors, Oil Industry try Finding Alternative Ways to Increase Production." Reported by John Berman the story centered on the possiblility and the availability of oil in sand and shale layers of the Earth but vagely touched on the negative environmental and nothing on the human and animal health impacts of this kind of production.

At a news conference held in mid May to announce the listing, Interior Secretary Dirk Kempthorne was armed with slides and charts showing the dramatic decline in sea ice over the last 30 years and projections that the melting of ice -- a key habitat for the bear -- would continue and may even quicken. He said that means the polar bear is a species likely to be in danger of extinction in the near future.

They also ignore the impacts to other marine mammals and refuse to honor the rights of the indigenous peoples of the North Slope and Chukchi Sea areas. Despite the efforts of IEN and REDOil, oil lease bids were accepted by the Interior Department's Minerals Management Service.

Changes in the environment, globalization and rapid economic development threaten our communities on both a local and global level. The survival of Indigenous culture, language and community continues to be affected by a modern industrialized world that lacks respect for the sacredness of Mother Earth. As "caretakers" of Mother Earth, it is our historic repsonsibility to protect the natural environment, to generate awarness of traditional ecological knowledge and promote models for sustainable community development. Established in 1990, IEN was formed by community-based Indigenous Peoles, including youth and elders, to address environmental and economic justice issues in North America.

2008-02-11 - Longest Walk 2 - DQ University
2008-01-25 - History from SacredRun.Org - Ukiah, CA
Here is some history from the Longest Walk 2 Official Site1978: Eleven legislative bills introduced in the 95th U.S. Congress would have abrogated Native Treaties that protect remaining Native sovereignty. The Longest Walk of 1978 was a peaceful, spiritual effort to educate the public about Native American rights and the Native way of life. Native American Treaty Rights under the U.S. Constitution are to be honored as the supreme law of the land. The 3,600 mile walk was successful in its purpose: to gather enough support to halt proposed legislation abrogating Indian treaties with the U.S. government. On July 15, 1978, The Longest Walk arrived in Washington, D.C with hundreds of supporters including Muhammed Ali, Senator Ted Kennedy and Marlon Brando. The eleven legislative bills that threatened Native sovereignty were defeated protecting the remaining Treaty rights Native Americans possessed. The extraordinarily successful grassroots effort is now being commemorated with a 30 year anniversary walk across America.
